    Re: Butts. (If I can keep a strait face, so can you!). Is that a metric still in use?

    So what’d they call Mr Clean for short?

    There you go! When it’s time, go for it!

    It’s a bit misleading to compare the brain’s “storage space” to that of a computer. The brain is an analogue device, and the long-term “memory” of even a single synapse has a lot more nuance than a digital on-off switch.

    One time my brain stored 2.6 petabytes or 2,500,001 gigabytes of data.

    It’s just as well since I hate liver.

    May the Lord be with you.

    Polar bear liver may kill you, but you’ll die with great eye sight.

    Like anyone would actually eat polar bear liver? And my Centrum capsules contain Vitamin A, yet I’m still alive.

    Vegetable sources of vitamin A are not as harmful as animal sources.

    Entire Butt English Porter from Salopian Brewing Company is a pretty good representation of the style.

    Was Mr. Clean’s reputation as a genie why his earring was accepted by the less politically correct Americans of the 50’s and 60’s?

    Some call that science ‘fake news’ and then prove it.

    Mr. Clean’s first name Veritably, originated from a ‘Give Mr. Clean a First Name’ promotion in 1962. 2nd place was a tie between ‘Deep’ and Sparkling’.

    The traditional measure of a butt is ‘36’

    Robert House Peters Jr. (12 January 1916 – 1 October 2008) was an American character actor most noted for his roles in 1950s B movies and westerns. He is perhaps best remembered as the face and body of Mr. Clean in the Procter and Gamble cleaning product commercials from the late 1950s into the 1960s.

    In fiction, Sherlock Holmes didn’t know that the Earth orbited the Sun and rotated on an axis. He believed the brain / memory had a limited capacity. Knowing whether the Sun went around the Earth, or the Earth rotated, and went around the Sun wasn’t useful knowledge in his work. He didn’t want to remember things that were not useful in his work.

    In “A Walk in the Sun,” there’s a rude soldier who keeps snapping his fingers and calling out “A butt!” when he wants a cigarette. Previously I thought someone ought to moon him, but throwing a barrel at him would be even better.
