My doctor said I was paranoid. Well, he didn’t actually say it, but I could tell he was thinking it.

I was quite surprised to learn that Antarctica was not discovered until 1820.

I had seen the headline “White rainbow over Scotland” several times, this week, but never followed the link, because I knew there was no such thing. Then I saw this posted, and it made sense. So why not just dispense with the clickbait, and simply call it what it is, an arc of fog?

We don’t need scientists to figure out how to prevent selfie related deaths. we just need people to realize that a thumbs up from strangers is not worth dying for.

Three more reasons why the new MacBook is not such a big deal. But, in response to the couple of readers who have taken great offense to my Apple putdowns, here, listen, I never said they were no good. They seem like perfectly useful devices. Just extremely overhyped. And perhaps the Mac’s biggest selling point, a very low existence of viruses, is not the case any more.

And the MacBook has intentionally been made harder to repair and upgrade. Which seems like an underhanded way of trying to get customers to keep buying new computers.

As Redditor Chapsman recently put it, ‘Apple has anorexia: it is obsessed with thinness which leads it to remove things people actually need’.

 

Also, a study has determined that iPhone users are, among other things, more dishonest.

I used to buy Mad Magazine a lot, as a teen. Their satire really appealed to my sense of humor. Seeing this sendup of theirs, of Star Trek, reminded me of this.

Alicia Silverstone makes a very strong case for not wearing wool. There are humane ways of producing it, though. But those ways are not as profitable.

Surely not everyone they knew, especially not everyone at their record company, was so naïve as to not see the potential down side of this name. Also, don’t quartets have four members?

One more new “thing” that has taken off on the internet, yet I find lame. This arguing with one’s own inner “dark side”. Oh, and the mannequin challenge. It is somehow remarkable for people to stand still for a picture, now? Maybe I have become one of those cranky old men who can’t stand the things kids do, these days. “Get off my lawn!”

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised anymore, though. Those are the same people who are awed by a cinnamon bun they think looks like E.T. I am seeing this almost everywhere, lately. (YAWN)

Ellen DeGeneres received the Presidential Medal of Freedom this week. This is what Barack Obama said in her honor: 

“It’s easy to forget now, when we’ve come so far, where now, marriage is equal under the law, just how much courage was required for Ellen to come out on the most public of stages almost 20 years ago. Just how important it was, not just to the LGBT community but for all of us to see somebody so full of kindness and light, somebody we liked so much, somebody who could be our neighbor or our colleague or our sister, challenge our own assumptions. Remind us that we have more in common than we realize. Push our country in the direction of justice. What an incredible burden that was to bear. To risk your career like that, people don’t do that very often. And then to have the hopes of millions on your shoulders. But it’s like Ellen says, “We all want a tortilla chip, that can support the weight of guacamole.” Which really makes no sense to me. But I thought would break the mood because I was getting kind of choked up. And she did pay a price. We don’t remember this. I hadn’t remembered it. She did, for a pretty long stretch of time, even in Hollywood. And yet, today, every day, in every way, Ellen counters what too often divides us, with the countless things that bind us together, inspires us to be better, one joke, one dance at a time.”

And that statement really made me realize what a big deal Ellen’s coming out really was.

If you’re filthy rich, go ahead and buy a $75 ashtray, just because it has the logo of your favorite car. But does anyone really need a soundbar that recreates their vehicles exhaust sound in their home? I’m guessing the buyers of this item were all unmarried.

Q.  Why do Hell’s Angels wear leather?

A.  Because chiffon wrinkles too easily.

 

A guy and a girl are having a drink together in a bar. The man raises his glass and says, “Here’s hoping you’re in Heaven ten minutes before the devil knows you’re dead!” “What’s that mean?” asks the girl. “That,” answers her date, “is an authentic Irish toast.” “Oh. Well, here’s to bread, eggs and cinnamon.” “Bread, eggs and cinnamon? What’s that?” The girl says, “That’s French toast.”

 

John meets Bill at the bar and he is looking somewhat sheepish and embarrassed. Bill says, “Hey John, what’s wrong?” John says, “I received a party invitation last night and it plainly said ‘Black Tie’ only. But when I got there, all the other men were wearing suits, too!”.
