“My friend the spin-doctor, he told me what to say …”
It has not been as bad here in NC as in previous years due to rain. Normally, we are several inches deep in yellow pollen by now.
A dollar bill is about 6 inches long.
1,000 (thousand) of them is 500 feet or the distance from the center field fence to the box seats behind home plate in Yankee Stadium.
1,000,000 (million) is a road trip from Midtown Manhattan to downtown Philadelphia.
1,000,000,000 (billion) is 3 and a half trips around the world.
1,000,000,000,000 (trillion) is greater than the distance from the earth to the sun. Also known a an astronomical unit.
21 trillion dollars takes us beyond the orbit of Uranus. At the speed of light, it would take almost three hours to reach the end of our debt.
The increase in the National Debt, thanks to the recent Congressional “tax cut” is the equivalent of laying down dollar bills at the rate of a half mile per second: Mach 3 or over 1,800 mph – literally faster than a speeding bullet. Can you spend money that fast? Trump and the Republican Party can.
It’s fake news. It’s only a military Inspector General report. How reliable can that be?
This was an issue in the military where name tags can only hold so many letters. I saw one that read, “Continued next airman.”
I am writing a fictitious book called “101 Reasons I’m Glad I’m Not a Girl.” Reason 1 is being able to stand up while going to the bathroom (the world is your urinal). Reason 101 is not having to find a bag to match my shoes. In between are 99 reasons, some trivial (and hopefully humorous) and some serious.
Whenever I am in a conversation with friends and a woman’s issue comes up, I blurt out “Reason number (pick a number) I’m glad I’m not a girl.”
This is recognition that it is a lot easier being a guy. I get my hair done in under 10 seconds compared to my wife’s 10 minutes. (Reason 78).
Some issues are societal (patriarchy, if you prefer) – pay gaps, for example. Some are biological (Short of a sex-change operation, that’s something that won’t change), but in a lot of cases women are also their own worst enemies.
Not every women’s issue is caused by men.
I am glad that there are women in the world. Life would be boring without them and I enjoy their company immensely. I’m just glad that I’m not one of them. Lef is easier on this side.
Amerika must be made safe from children, Muslims, gays and all those other threats to white Christian supremacy. They are out there and they are out to get YOU and ONLY Trump can save you. Step 1. Keep them out. Step 2. Deport them. Step 3. Genocide – it’s a logical progression. Worked well for the Nazis.
Alexa, where are my car keys?
I don’t think this artificial intelligence is as intelligent as they claim it to be.
Trump said, “I’ve got this really great health care plan. Trust me, you’re gonna love it!” Now that it is here what we have is sort of like Obamacare. Well, it’s exactly Obamacare. Except it now costs 20% more for less coverage. Are you loving it yet?
The 3-lb can of coffee has shrunk a lot over the past decade. It’s now 28 ounces.
