A Few Giggles

Ben Hur, Moses, Michaelangelo and the hero of the Planet of the Apes died this week. Charleston Heston was a great actor, by all accounts a very good man, and Number One on the ACLU's Ten Most Wanted list. I guess Nugent will now inherit that position. Rest in Peace, Charleston.

You may not know this, but the Olympic torch is lit in Greece with a "pure flame" by using a mirrored parabola and the sun. So when the Chinese deliberately extinguished and re-lit it twice yesterday in Paris, they screwed the pooch.

Speaking of Olympics, contrary to popular belief, since the Games resumed in 1896, the Games have always been awarded to a city, not a nation. For example:

1964 Tokyo
1968 Mexico City
1972 Munich

1976 Montreal
1980 Moscow
1984 Los Angeles
1988 Seoul
1992 Barcelona
1996 Atlanta
2000 Sydney
2004 Athens
2008 Beijing
2012 London.


By the way, I did some research - Tibet covers an area of about 965,250 square miles - as you look straight down at it. If you flattened it out, it would be closer to 15 million!

There was an ad for one of those wonderful weight loss pills that stopped me in my tracks - the ad claimed that their product was "not available in pharmacies or drug stores". Huh? What did I miss?

Apparently she's done it again, but since Hillary has proven herself a pathological liar there's no sense going any further.

Oh - and a true story I heard on radio back in the 70's. Apparently there was a fire in a cave at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, and what was on fire was fossilized Giant Sloth dung. By examining this dung scientists could determine the sloth's diet and what the vegetation was like - but they were having a problem putting the fire out without destroying the dung. Then the radio announcer, I swear, said "If anyone knows how to save this endangered feces please let us know".

I almost crashed the car!
