While in college they would have reruns of Twilight Zone, Night Gallery and Outer Limits on at 10;30 or 11:00. I loved to watch them but would then have to watch Johnny Carson before I could go to sleep. I have always wondered how people like Rod Serling could sleep at night.
There used to be a literacy requirement for voting but that was found to be unconstitutional. The only requirement now to vote is that you be over 18 and supposedly alive. However I know of some cases where someone voted using the identity of a dead person.
True story I heard on the radio yesterday. very recently Shaquille O’neal was in a jewelry store and overhead a young couple looking at engagement rings and talking about how she loved the ring but they said that they did not think they could afford it. After a few minutes Shaq walked over and asked the salesman how much the ring was. Shaq then pulled out his credit card and said for him to put it on that. This was told as a true story and just shows what kind of guy Shaq is.
I just as well go twiddle my thumbs as trying to read one with multiple plot lines. As for one with a simple plot I found that reading the last chapter early in the book would help me follow the rest of it while trying to finish it. Since the AP has changed the way they reference names in their article I find that I have to reread it several times to figure out what happened. For instance they now reference a person at the beginning of an article by their name and what their role in the murder was but from then on only report them by last name. I have to go back and search to see if they are the suspect or their lawyer.
I admire people that love to read and can enjoy reading a book for pleasure. I have dyslexia and one of the problems that I have is I really cannot remember what I have read in novels. If I start reading one and get to chapter 3 for example and do not mark where I left off I will have no idea what I have or have not read. It was very frustrating in college that we had requirements to read certain books and then have tests on them. Until I found “Cliff’s Note” I was in deep trouble as I could read a book and not remember any of the details or be able to discuss the “meanings” behind any of the “comparisons” the author was trying to make. Unless one has this problem you cannot possibly understand the frustration of spending hours reading a book and not remember a thing about it but expected to be able to discuss any of the subtleties of it.
Your cat may not appreciate them but every dog that I have fed one to loved them and begged for more.
Not having a conscience is pretty much the definition of psychopath. There are a lot of them around including most of the ones that are running our country or should I say ruining our country.
I think just about all of the old cartoons have been banned due to violence, racial insensitivity or some other made up excuse. What they have replaced them with is almost sickening to watch when you compare them with the old ones. The new ones may not have as much violence but the type of violence they show is much more influential on a person. Everyone knew the Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote were not real and that type of stuff could not happen but now they try to make it real and so people want to copy it.
Shouldn’t be using Venus Flytraps for extermination like that. They are rare and only grow in one small county in South Carolina. No other place in the world and is on the endangered species list.
I once heard a comic telling about how a dog only judged you by what you did to him. He said dogs were so nonjudgmental that even Hitler had a dog and the dog loved him.
