    Thank goodness for PBS Masterpiece Mysteries.
    Or, maybe I will watch the Super Bowl. Except after 49 years of Roman numerals, the Biggest and Brightest Wigs decided they must go to Arabic numerals in 2016 for “Super Bowl 50,” because, who knows what the L L means? But next year, it will be back to “LI.” I do favor Tradition….

    As a further example of how stupid society has become, one now refers to the “1800s” rather than the 19th Century. People think the 19th Century was the 1900s.

    Maybe they think the Superbowl is sponsored by L. L. Bean?

    Very likely I will make good use of my time by brewing five gallons of beer, something I have control over.
    In any sporting event, it is already known that one team will win. I don’t care which, and my watching or not will not influence the outcome. But If I don’t make beer, I will be negatively influenced for weeks. Therefore, I actively brew instead of passively watch. Then everything goes better for me with a good homebrew or two waiting for me at the end of the day. I am not cast into a month-long depression if “my” team loses.

    They didn’t listen in class and now they are as “smart” as their compatriots.
