Trash talk, snippets, stuff

Quote of the Day: "Sure I displayed it, yes. But I do that 20 times a week. I do it when someone needs to cut a watermelon." — Jay Kimbrough, deputy chancellor of the Texas A&M System and former Rick Perry chief of staff, on the pocketknife that reportedly got him escorted out of a building Wednesday after being fired.

Raise your hand if you are wearing a watch. If you are, you’re likely old. The young people today use a cell phone. Raise your other hand if you lug a camera around with you. Not if you use your cell phone. Both hands in the air? Congrats, you’re a geezer victim of highway robbery perpetrated by AT&T, T-Moble, etc.

Did you know that more people have been killed by mosquitoes than by human beings?

Which came first? When Thomas Edison wired your neighborhood, the first four household appliances to become electrified were: sewing machine, fan, toaster and teakettle. The fifth was the vibrator. Not at your house, you say? Pity.

On a non-related note, if you’ve emailed me the past few days, I never got it. My email software jammed up. Seems I had 41,000 messages piled up that should have been deleted but weren’t. It’s working now. Fire at will. Have fun.

I wondered why emails were getting returned.

Since I retired, I don't wear a watch. Don't care what time it is.

Only wear it when I go to my part time job. lol

Credit "Silent Spring" for a lot of those mosquito deaths. Outlawing DDT gave mosquito control the death penalty.
