      I love that song. So glad I went on a 'retro' spree with 50's, 60's, and 70's music in the early 90's.

  3. February 22 is Washington's birthday. I heard he chopped down a cherry tree with his wooden teeth or something. That was before my time.

      There was a guy whose privy someone had tipped over. He was upset and called his three teenage sons to ask who did it. Nobody wanted to confess, so he tried a different approach. He told them about how George Washington chopped down a tree and was rewarded by his dad for his honesty to confess he did it. Then one of his sons stepped forward and confessed it was he who tipped the privy.

       

      The dad gave his son a good beating, upon the son cried:

      -"But why, Dad? You said George Washington got a reward..."

      -"Yes but his dad didn't sit in the cherry tree when it was chopped down!"

  6. You wanted to go the market to see what they had in stock, but you crashed on the way there? Don't worry, you'll be fine by March.

      Just like we lost our 10 million bet on number 6 and nothing happened in Popcorn Day, nothing will happen in Goof Off Day or by March.

  8. Our gas bill was double and local people on nextdoor.com complained about the same thing. A couple people called and were told that the price went up and it's going to stay that way, so keep your furnace at 68, add insulation, only run the dishwasher when full, and so on. I don't know about the insulation, but we already do the other things.

      Yeah, the water heater and air conditioner thingy outside use gas. Stove is electric.

      I've heard of prices going up but Double??  You guys need to band together and go to the news,  the Better Business Bureau, maybe a lawyer for a class action suit...(Hmmmm I wish I knew the answer...)

  9. In case you're ever incased in mud, that's a good time to learn how to spell. :D

      Oh, now I see what you mean.  Took me a while.  I was first thinking brown sticky material that stick to you when wet.  Then you need to cast a magic spell to free yourself.  Now it's MUD, as in Multi-user Dungeon.  You have to type stuff on a command lines to do stuff and spelling is important.

      I can see the future. On March 23, when March 22 is over and nothing unusual has happened, you will post an update saying that May 24 (9 weeks after March 22) is National Aviation Maintenance Technician day.

      Interesting!  Not a robot, but when I was in France in 1984, they sold these wind-up toy birds in the park (Like near the Eiffel Tower).  They were light weight, plastic, the tail was a crank and the wings had glossy plastic paper, but were just like that robot bird's wings!   And you threw them like a paper airplane after winding them up and they flapped away.  I almost bought one from this African guy who was selling them to tourists.  (I'll have to see if I can find a pic)...

      Cool, I love popcorn.  That's pretty much the only reason I went to movie theatres once or twice a year. Nothing beats movie theatre popcorn (once in a while, couldn't eat that stuff too often).

      I, evidently, ain't skeered.

  14. We had to call 911 yesterday afternoon for my stepfather (found out fluid was collecting around his lungs). The hospital called my sister some time after 4 A.M. today. They said that his heart stopped and she should go to the hospital. I'm assuming that means he died. We'll probably have to move soon since there's no way we can afford to rent the house we're living in without the money he's been receiving every month.

      My sister says that we're going to try to keep renting the house (at least until the lease is up near the end of the year).

  15. You bet 10 million on 6? That's a big number!

      7 is a bigger number!

      If (when) 6 fails, you can always bet 10 million on any other number from 7 to 20 (to lose again).

  17. Two people at my sister's work have the rona. I hope the zinc & quercetin my sister & I have been taking recently will scare away the rona & the flu.

      One person where I work just got it too.  Two others are in quarantine because someone in their house has it.  We are already short staffed (insert joke here) and it's not fun.

    2. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      Where I work, 4 people over all (2 of them no longer working there) have had it, but 2 had no symptoms.  I've tested negative 3 times and once couldn't get a test (early on)...Interesting on the zinc and quercetin...

  18. Bought "Planet Coaster" for PS4 with my card money. The guy in the video below says it's "the spiritual successor to 'Theme

    Park' with a shiny new look."

      He also mentioned "Two Point Hospital," so I looked it up:

      Looks like I'll be buying that one when I get a chance.

  19. There was a shooter at my sister's mall today in Pineville, NC. She's on the way home. I'll post more info here as she finds out more.

      Fortunately it appears the police report no shits fired but a weapon drawn. No injuries apparently. Not much but at least that's something to be thankful for.

    3. Cebus Capucinis

      Cebus Capucinis

      That was supposed to say shots. I'd edit it but if your mall has a Taco Bell there may very well have been shits fired.

      Crazy!  BTW,  My silly message was not supposed to have gone on your page...Err sorry about that!  I actually thought I'd left back to my own page when I did that...I got busy doing something else and somehow didn't realize.  That must have looked pretty weird...

      I like specific episodes from TOS, TNG, DS9, and Voyager. I also hate specific episodes with a passion.

    3. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      For other stuff,  (And I'm probably being obvious) I recommend The Orville, Battlestar Galactica (Original), Lost in Space (the old ones), Cowboy Bebop, and The Mandalorian, which is pretty much a popcorn, edge of your seat, Turn it up Star Wars in your house experience.

      I am going to try to rewatch the Mandalorian with my kids... at least my son might continue watching it. It definitely has a Cowboy Bebop vibe! One other series that I watch with my daughter is The Expanse. Highly recommend that one.

  23. Zombies are chasing me. Does the game think I want to hop on my motorcycle or stand there and slowly reload my weapon as zombies munch on my flesh?

      I have no idea to what game you refer, but I would think zoom away on the motorcycle Then load your gun, shoot, repeat.

    3. Random Terrain

      Random Terrain

      "Days Gone" on the PS4. You press the Square button to reload your weapon and press the square button when next to your motorcycle to get on it. If you aren't in the perfect spot next to your motorcycle, you'll reload your weapon instead of getting on the motorcycle.

      That's crap! Bad design, as I say. Should be a separate button. Should have one button specifically for Actions.
