I was browsing through stuff I once saved on an old hard drive.  Don't ask.


Seventeen undocumented pomegranates were found in a pickup truck stopped by FDA agents on highway 31.

Mrs. Winthrop prepared deep-fried immigrants for dinner.

The greengrocer was fined ha’quid, tuppence for displaying purple eggplant and red tomatoes.

Multitasking for me is ignoring more than one thing at a time.

“There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.” ~Isaac Asimov

Word of the day: ignorance

Asimov has it right.

Vee, yes, and easier to spot because there is so much of it.

Chuck, one does well to refrain from arguing with fact.

Secondary Roads said...

Amen. I've seen it demonstrated multiple times.

Sharkey, some people think it's weird, but yes, it works for me.
