  1. The shake-up in Europe

    It feels odd to be part of "the majority." Translation: "feeling odd" means "feeling great!"
  2. Fake News

    I was at a nice Japanese restaurant with my army buddies and the restaurant had a pool with huge gold fish in it. We dropped a few things in the water and a tiny waitress who looked to be about 14 came over to us and said, "Youstopdoingdis." We stopped.
  3. What's Up With Harvey?

    We live in interesting times. Apparently even one unverified instance of loutish behavior can cost you your livelihood, not that I am sticking up for the bad guys. When I was single I did ask female coworkers out. I don't think I was too overbearing but I might have asked them out more than once after a solid no was heard the first time, and when I became management I stopped myself from thinking about female coworkers. I wonder if teenage boys have learned a lesson about groping and if there is a new sensibility at the high school level?
  4. minimum wage cartoons

    If there were no minimum wage, what amount would people be willing to work for and would they work for anything if there were no "emergency governmental funds" available? I had a paper route as a kid and it seemed like a good deal. Then my next job was for an hourly wage compiling advertising flyers which was more money, but with longer hours and I was stuck in one place on weekends and some nights after school. I smelled like ink.
  5. IQ

    Robin wrote: I've done well on IQ tests in the past. But I'm glad I didn't let that get to my head too much, here are some limitations of IQ tests: end quote For me, the Tom Hanks movie about being stranded on a desert island illustrates the concept of “IQ and reason in action.”
  6. I remember articles and movies on black jack card counting. One system involved placing your feet in a way that "remembers" the cards played for you.

    Ya'll is confused. Spacing and spelling matters. Did you mean to write I am "a rchitect," or I am "a rich tect?"
  8. My emotions were wrong

    One of my favorite fictional animals is the dragon. And I wonder why cartoons normally depict animals? My favorite "I wish I could do that" can be found in the Harry Potter movies and scifi.
  9. Anybody Enjoying the Hillary Clinton Show?

    From “Deep Freeze,” by John Sandford, paperback edition, page 304: “You know that joke,” Shrake said? “Mickey Mouse goes to his lawyer, says he wants a divorce from Minnie Mouse, and he explains why. The lawyer said, “I’m not sure you should go for a divorce, just because she’s having a few psychological problems.” Mickey says, “Psychological problems? I didn’t say she was having psychological problems. I said she was fuckin’ Goofy.”
  10. Ken Burns Vietnam War Series

    Would the world be better or different now if we had not gone to war, against The Kaiser, Hitler, North Korea, or North Vietnam? It is speculative to ask but the general libertarian and Christian view is that unless attacked, stay thy hand.
  11. optical illusion to prevent running

    Don't let Tom Cruise go near that hallway. He might hurt himself. I wonder if any kids have cracked their heads on the right side wall from imagined gravity?
  12. Free Will Exists (Proof)

    Is time travel an impossibility? On the quantum level, can a particle be in two places at the same time? Will Scotty never beam me up?
  13. Aristotle's wheel paradox

    I would walk to school around August and get old beat up text books that were going to be used in the coming semester and read them cover to cover. I must have seemed like Horshak from the show, "Mr. Kotter" 'Ooh ooh pick me! I know!' Oddly, no one ever asked me what I was doing walking around the school and taking books out.
  14. The only point I can make about Anthony's argument is that "gay marriage" needs to be called that or some other name to distinguish it from "regular marriage," for understanding, jobs, inheritance, and insurance purposes.
  15. What's Up With Harvey?

    We are odd creatures. Even after we have found “mates” people still dress or wear makeup to attract the opposite sex. Those new shades of bright red lipstick are like a female baboon’s butt when she is “in heat.” When I think about being a single teenager, whoa, was I an inept dork, constantly attracted to women and I had a difficult time not gawking at them. Yet as Michael observed, Harvey did not look at women’s bodies, just their faces . . . on camera. Later in life I think it is better to ignore the “attributes” of women and just make eye contact which is what I do. Though if I see a fine pair of knockers on display I just have to look. Or an hourglass figure. Or a prominent behind with that slant from the waist to the crest of the butt. Then I just look at their faces. Unless, it is a TV show or movie, and then I gawk all I want. I guess I am still a jerk.
