    If I were a Taiwanese capital city garbage collector, I’d play Beethoven’s “Fifth.” (How is that number in the bowling bit even said?)

    Not just Taipei, I believe it’s the same all over Taiwan. They have another tune they play for the recycling truck, but I didn’t recognize it.

    When the Taiwanese hear Fur Elise, most of them take out their trash, but some of them answer their cell phone.

    And if we posit that there are 7,000,000,000 people with enough skill in the bowling alley who can and will bowl to achieve all combinations they would each have to bowl



    At 40 minutes per game, that’s


    minutes of bowling per person. Which translates to



    I don’t think we’re going to see that happen.

    Have you seen the video of someone getting a perfect 300 score in bowling in 86 seconds?

    For those who don’t know the proper way to read that number, that’s fifty quadrillion, six hundred thirteen trillion, two hundred forty-four billion, one hundred fifty-five million, fifty-one thousand, eight hundred fifty-six. Some people throw “and” in there and that is totally improper!

    Uh, isn’t the object in bowling to score 300?

    I used to work same place as Ron Bowles. Someone would page Ron “Bowles 298”.And someone would add “Darn good average!”
