Your Assignment? Reading All This Shit, This Weekend

If nothing else, I want my blog to be a compendium of  worthless, irrelevent knowledge.  A place you come to get bored.

  • The symbol on the “pound” key (#) is called an octothorpe. ( I hear it just gave birth to eight ampersans, artifically insiminated by same crazy ass Arab looking Reproductive Expert.   The vertical lines in this symbol have recently been made fuller in an effort to resemble actress and self proclaimmed humantarian and crazy fellow keyboard symbol,  Angelina  Joliequal-Sign (=)

  • The state with the longest coastline in the US is Alaska.  (Perfect for  year round swimming, sunbathing and seeing Sarah Palin’s house from every other sand dune)
  • Spot, Data’s cat on Star Trek: The Next Generation, was played by six different cats. (Most recently, the role was  portrayed Irving Katz, who took the gig because he needed more press for his struggling Nashville deli)
  • If you toss a penny 10000 times, it will not be heads 5000 times, but more like 4950. The heads picture side weighs more, so it ends up on the bottom.  (Just like that big queen, Andy Dick)
  • The housefly hums in the middle octave, key of F. (It shits to the octaves of P and U)
  • Maine is the only state whose name is just one syllable. (And Las Vegas consists of TWO one syllable words.   What  are the “odds” of that?  What??  You don’t think so.  Put you money where your mouth is….like a sherpa, you want Tibet?)

  • Horses cannot vomit. (And vomit is rarely hoarse)
  • S.O.S. doesn’t stand for “Save Our Ship” or “Save Our Souls” — It was just chosen by an 1908 international conference on Morse Code because the letters S and O were easy to remember and just about anyone couldkey it and read it, S = dot dot dot, O = dash dash dash  (I thought it was the name of a steel wool pad, perfect for scrubbin’ dirty pots and pans)

    1. Alan Thicke wrote the lyrics for Facts of Life and his ex wife, Gloria Loring, who was also in my favorite soap, sang the words. Strange bedfellows they were.

    2. In most advertisements, including newspapers, the time displayed on a watch is 10:10.

      Most if not all watches have the brand name at the top. Having the hands positioned at 10:10 do not obstruct the brand name and the “V” creates a natural focal point right to the brand name which sits perfectly in the middle of it.

    3. Good Christ that’s a lot of information.

      Thank you, though, for mentioning The Ramses brand condom. I knew that the great phaoroh Ramses II fathered over 160 children but was unaware that he was ribbed.

      I do know, however, that he was both male and a pig so if we multiply 160 by 30…well, we can safely assume that he spent a hell of a lot of in coitus.

      Thanks

    4. OK, I read the ones about the butt dimples and the multiple caterpillar rectums. I don’t know if that says more about the power of imagery, the magic of a strong finale or my apparent anal fixation.

    5. I’m gonna need an extension on this assignment Ms. K!

      Kudos to you lady, I don’t know how you found out all this amazing shit, but bless your funny funny heart!!
