    My dad used to win a lot of stuffed animals playing the booths where you had to land a dime on a dish. Every year, for a couple of months before the LA County Fair, he would set up a plate on the dinner table, grab a handful of dimes, and practice tossing those dimes with just he right backspin and loft so the dime would take a bounce and land back into the dish. The secret was to try and hit the back edge of the plate, which slopes back down towards the center of the plate. They started making the game harder by suspending the prizes low, over the plates, so you couldn’t get the ideal loft. Then they went from dimes to quarters, making the game much more expensive to play, and a bit more difficult since the quarters were heavier & bounced more.

    I don’t mind most of the body modifications, like piercings or tattoos, but plugs have to be the worst fashion idea that anyone’s ever come up with. Let’s stretch out a gigantic hole in your earlobe so that twenty years from now, you’ll be left with a saggy loops of skin.

    I guess that’s one bear that won’t be sh*ing in the woods. Oh, well, at least the Pope’s still Catholic.

    I, unfortunately, play golf with a friend who often invites his father to join us. Very nice guy, but he takes forever to hit. Three or four practice swings on the fairway minimum. Then when it’s his turn to putt, he’ll study the lie from every angle before stepping up to the ball. Sometimes I just want to yell, “Hurry up and hit the ball!” but I don’t want to embarrass my friend.

    The rays coming off the magnifying glass should be converging, not diverging.

    And on an old fashioned phone with a cord.

    There is current controversy over the Washington Redskin’s refusal to change their name.

    Earl has the point. Good luck with the hunters, Earl.

    On a somewhat related note, you want to make sure you close the lid of your toilet before you flush. The aerosol can spread fecal matter from six to eight feet away, landing, for example, on your toothbrush.
