    I’ve always thought, since a photographic memory is the ability to remember everything you see, then a phonographic memory would be the ability to remember everything you hear.

    Rough losing two greats so close together.

    I won’t be surprised if I see someone in one of these next season, and the cartoonist must take ALL the blame. You just DON’T give stupid ideas to American sports fans.

    I’m so old I remember when you rented your phone from AT&T. You couldn’t buy them. You had to rent them.

    My computer allows me to keep a digital copy of my signature, which I can paste into pdf documents. The document becomes a legal document, which is why a good password is critical for my computer.

    I disagree with MrJimCos. I think we got the joke, understood the “real life” problem, AND realized the “whole” of the cartoon includes the math problem. Everything is there in the cartoon, except the math problem solution.
    We are people who see a math problem and solve it for reasons of our own.
    Growing up I hated doing pages of math problems for school, but since then I look for them and then solve them for fun (OCD?) Sometimes cartoonists include math problems without solutions and I wonder if that artist is being lazy (assuming the math problem isn’t part of the punchline). Mr. Amend is good at including solvable math problems.

    It’s great to be among other people who are not afraid to undertake math problems on Sunday morning. Keep up the good work people.

    I get a pick-me-up from espresso, but don’t get the sophistication. I wonder if I’m using the wrong roast.
    Oh, and I’d drink several if espresso came with weight loss.

    What are they teaching in school these days! Everyone knows it would be, “Evan is a miserable cretin squared.”

    I’m retired in Arizona and I’m about to rake leaves for the second time this fall. The oak trees have all dropped their leaves, but the sapling oaks from acorns the squirrels buried last year (and subsequently forgot) are just starting to turn gold. I may ignore them. Today I will clean the pine needles out of the rain gutter in preparation for winter snow. Our town has a message board that earlier this month displayed, “The average pine tree loses 30% of its needles in the fall. Our pine trees are exceptional.” My rain gutter and yard prove that. I live in the largest stand of Ponderosa pines in the WORLD, and yes, it’s in Arizona. Many Arizonans don’t know about this part of the state. Those that do know, come up here in the summer to get out of the Valley (Phoenix area) heat. Though I will admit not many people retire here to avoid the cold.
