It takes only one drink to get me drunk. The trouble is, I can’t remember if it’s the thirteenth or the fourteenth. –(George Burns)

Well, I guess it’s officially fall, here, in Edmonton. The daylight hours are getting shorter, and it has been cooling off to around 5°c at night. A welcome relief from those hot summer nights. snoopy

 

I went into this Asian geography quiz anticipating a very poor result. I was quite surprised to score 14 out of 30 correct. I would have scored 3 points higher if I had gone with my first instincts.

HA! Finally, a quiz subject that I am familiar with! I scored 100% on this homonym quiz. It was extremely easy for me.

Am I wrong for letting spelling errors like this bug the hell out of me? I mean “tong” seems really easy to spell correctly if you didn’t sleep through English class. Easy for me, anyway, since I did well in that subject.

Today I learned that herbs are obtained from the leaves of plants, and spices come from everything but. Just a bit of trivia for you.

Does the fact that 370,000 gun traces are run every year in the U.S., and they have no national firearm database make sense to anyone? That the NRA is responsible for making this a Federal law makes me even less comfortable than I previously was about them. And people wonder why there are so many unsolved crimes. So the “freedom” gun owners are always ranting about is the freedom to own one or more deadly weapons in secret.

I was so outraged by this video of rapper 2 Chainz eating $5 a kernel popcorn that I decided to try to find out if he spent any of his millions on the less fortunate. Learning that he has, among other things, bought a house for a family of 11, and paid a veteran’s rent for a year, softened my mood somewhat, but just the fact that someone decided to make gold covered popcorn still pisses me off.

 

The same type of person who, unlike me, wants to have a gold phone, despite its cumbersome weight. And the fact that it requires non=portable accessories to be used to full effect.

I am not the only one who is impressed by actress Margot Robbie. While it is a bit weird to put a monetary value on a date with a celebrity, at least they evened it up by including a male star in the survey. Unfortunately, the one they chose was only valued at half the price. In my opinion, a lot of the other “priceless” wishes were a bit odd. And overpriced. $60 for a compliment from a stranger? If you have to pay for a compliment, it is worth nothing. $700 for a kiss? Come on.

As I understand it, the makers of Pokémon Go decide where the Pokemons are placed. While that does not excuse people trespassing, part of the blame should go to the creators. But, perhaps, this player could have captured the character from outside the building. It doesn’t sound like he was too worried about getting in trouble, though.

So, that famous glass bottom bridge in China has been shut down, due to being too popular. Couldn’t they have just limited the number of people allowed on it at one time? A lot of people will wait in line for hours, even days, for tickets, or electronics. Why not this?

I have often seen this picture being posted, in the past few months. What those posters all seem to be missing is that anything that has actually been through the mail will have postmarks on the stamps. Since these stamps have none, the potato did not actually travel through the postal system. This last time the picture was published, it also received a comment stating that fruits and vegetables without proper, crush proof, packaging will not be accepted by the postal service. That sounds logical.

A group of artists removed some scrap metal from a Polish junkyard, and created replicas of 4 classic automobiles with it. The results are impressive.

“Art”. What a waste of a classic car. And a lot of cement. As well as the time, effort, and money to move it around.

This is the story of two elderly people living in a Florida mobile home park. He was a widower and she a widow. They had known one another for a number of years. Now, one evening there was a community supper in the big activity center. These two were at the same table, across from one another. As the meal went on, he made a few admiring glances at her and finally gathered up his courage to ask her, “Will you marry me?” After about six seconds of ‘careful consideration,’ she answered. “Yes, Yes, I will.” The meal ended and with a few more pleasant exchanges, they went to their respective places. Next morning, he was troubled. Did she say ‘yes’ or did she say ‘no’? He couldn’t remember. Try as he would, he just could not recall. Not even a faint memory. With trepidation, he went to the telephone and called her. First, he explained to her that he didn’t remember as well as he used to. Then he reviewed the lovely evening past. As he gained a little more courage, he then inquired of her, “When I asked if you would marry me, did you say ‘Yes’ or did you say ‘No’?” He was delighted to hear her say, “Why, I said, ‘Yes, yes I will’ and I meant it with all my heart.” Then she continued, “And I am so glad that you called, because I couldn’t remember who had asked me.”
