    pcolli: When I was growing up, even cities still used wells instead of lakes. Around here, those had the right amount of fluoride in them naturally. Only lake water require any addition.

    BobBlumenfeld: The cmeras cover more than one player. Three or foursome times 70 is over a couple hundred.

    Salinasong: I will be 81 in 11 days and I can take it back to just before I was born. A bunch of WW-I war profiteers were attacking FDR for being a “traitor to his class” when they weren’t even in his class. Rosevelts got their money when it was still Niew Amsterdam and noblesse oblige still had some influence on old money.

    comicsssfan: I went to school in Texas and I managed to learn something in spite of that. I am not sure how much was autodidact, but I learned none the less.

    pcolli: Neither am I. It was standard back then, and our wives have less uterine cancers.

    Coined by that anti-Communist, Social Democrat, Willy Brandt, to describe the pre-wall exodus from DDR to West Berlin.

    speed_racer: Late 1970s, I was there. First weather (F to C, millibars to kiloPascals, etc.) then containers (oz to gr), then highways (speed and distances). Containers were worst because they had both US and Imperial gallons. I would have fun with resistance to metrication by suggesting first split the middle between US and Imperial quarts. This always got agreement. Then I would say, “and we could call it a litre.” Followed by sputtering among the objectors.
