    Nimrod was a king mentioned in the Book of Genesis, who was said to have led the building of the Tower of Babel. That’s why his name is associated with foolishness.

    It’s good to know I’m not the only one like that.

    Maybe a lot of people just don’t talk about being morning people, fearing of the wrath of the night people.

    The first time I heard of a google was when I got and read the book “Mathematics and the Imagination” when I was about 11 or 12 years old (around 1970).

    Sometimes I shock people by not being up on the latest scandal all over the news, since I never watch the news any more (except the weather sometimes if there’s a reason to).

    It’s funny how many Calvin & Hobbes fans do not watch the news on TV (except maybe that one guy here who for some reason seems to think high school students should watch the news). What do Calvin & Hobbes fans and people who refuse to watch TV news have in common?

    Isn’t that where they keep the Spanking Machine?

    The first time I ever heard “Pack Up Your Troubles in Your Old Kit-Bag” was when I went to Lourdes in 1984. There was a very big group of pilgrims from England there at the same time, and I heard them singing that song one day. That song always brings back happy memories.

    Do kids still sing: “Comet, it makes your vomit green…” like we all did when I was in school?

    My favorite is the one that says “I wonder what it says when I’m not!”

    In the color version, it’s not red.

    Is it better to have an American company with some operations in the US, or no company at all?

    It doesn’t make any difference. The only people it matters to for a company where all the workers are in China are the executives of the company. To everybody else, who cares what country the headquarters happen to be in? Who cares where the executives of the country live? The important thing is what country the workers are in.
