    One time I saved 78 people from drowning even though I can’t swim.

    Bevin Kartz One time I spit a cherry spit more than 59 feet.

    As much as I’m ancestrally part German, that’s quite an early birthday present

    I can’t believe they kept records. They must have known he would be President someday.

    St. Reagan’s last job left millions of people drowning in dispair and was the Harbinger of the Orange horror clown. Burn, Ronnie, burn.

    Since Kevin Bartz’s nickname is “Boomerang” does that mean all of his cherry-pits keep coming back to him?

    Another fun fact about Reagan. If you watch one of his pictures, you’d notice that, as an actor, he was a good president :D

    You sound like my brother in law whom we call the one-upper duper.

    That Ronald Reagan ‘fact’ sounds like something from a movie studio biography.

    Reagan may have saved 77 people, but he started the great theft from the working class and poor the “trickle down” lie that misguided Americans are still falling for to this very day. He robbed from the poor and gave to the rich, while distracting the masses with lies about immigrants and POC. People who were already fabulously wealthy became just a bit wealthier at our expense. And have been keeping their ill gotten gains for 40 years. As a result, a permanent under class was created with no chance for upward mobility. Thank the current administration for making it so even worse, I’m sure the cure for cancer, or the next great technology can wait for someone from a wealthy family to come up with it.

    There’s a baseball team in that area called the ‘Pit Spitters’, too…

    Every time I see the Ronald Reagan figure on how many people he saved, it get’s higher. In another 10 years it will be over 100.

    Was Ronnie’s feat spread out over time, or was it all at once?

    Cherry pits? Reminds one of a scene from “Witches of Eastwick.”

    Regan saved 77 people? Not sure I believe that. Political spin. Like Trump saying he has an IQ of 182. I think they need to move the decimal point two places to the left.

    There’s an art to seed spitting, whether it’s Watermelon or Cherries. Note the curl in his tongue.

    Regan might have saved 77 people, but he allowed thousands of needless deaths by denying the aids epidemic. Sound familiar?

    My home town is about 15 miles from Eau Claire. We used to kick their butts in sports, particularly football. Now they don’t even have enough students for a football team. Nice people though, a lot of apple, pear, and cherry orchards around Southwestern Michigan. Blueberrys too.

    The truth is, Ronald Reagan was an outstanding life guard, who did save people’s lives. But 77 people, no. This should read more like “assisted 77 people in the water”. If he saved 77 lives he would have more medals than Audie Murphy.

    Some of you hate addicts need to take a break until after the pandemic. Can’t you just stick with pulling the wings off of butterflies? That’s about how much you’re contributing to those of us who come here for a laugh and fun facts.
