What's wrong with 5th grade? It was the best 2 years
of my life.

Count's up to 908 now, here comes 1000.

Maybe I can turn that 5th grader comment into a compliment!!! Some of those fifth graders are actually pretty smart!

I went to the Department of Motor Vehicles the other day with my brother, and one of the questions the gal asked was where he was born... which was LIMA, Peru.

She looked up with a deer in the headlights look, and said... "Where is that"?
She was, I'm guessing 30 years old or more. Pretty scary huh?

Great educational system we have here in the ol' U.S. of A. 8>)

Yes, the system sucks. It's kind of funny, but I have some friends like that.

My roommates went to less fortunate schools growing up. Both very smart, one double majored, and the other working on his masters. The schools don't teach them s#it. The barely ever took a history or geography class. I knew more about these subjects in grade school then they do now.

Anyway, the systems sucks. Just hope I can send my kids to private schools when I have them. Nothing is expected in most public schools, therefore nothing is accomplished.

Not near as scary as any time a cashier in one of the local supermarkets is called upon to do basic arithmetic:

Recent in the expensive supermarket, where the cashiers SEEM to be well educated: I was purchasing only four identical items at $1.99 each. The total came to $9.95. So I said "That's not correct. You must have keyed in one too many". He said "No. Four bags at 1.99. The total is 9.95". I said "1.99 is a cent less than two dollars, so four of them is four cents less than eight dollars". I might as well have been talking Greek. He had no clue what I meant. Eventually I got him to advance the tape and see that it showed one at 1.99 followed by four at 1.99. That he understood and knew how to correct.

Yesterday in the market where the cashiers are definitely not educated: The total was $59.20. I handed her three twenties and two dimes. She keyed in something (obviously just $60) and the register said the chance was $.80. So she pulls out 80 cents and starts to hand it to me. I said "No. I gave you $60.20". She said "Yes?" I said "so the change should be a dollar". She said "No. It's 80 cents". I said "The total was 59.20". She looked at the register and said "yes". I said "and I gave you 60.20". She was totally confused and flustered at that point. She said "What should the change be?". I said "one dollar" and she handed that to me.

LOL!!!


My company's name used to start with the word "Architectural" ... Last year I dropped it because a few people (like at one Disty) could neither pronounce or spell it correctly... This would result in "Sorry we don't seem to have you as a customer" or... shipments would get indefinately delayed until I'd call up again, and more times than once the counter person would ask "Uh, can you spell Architectural for me?" --No it wasn't A#AD... Those guys up here are cool... it was another place that makes me crazy... I can't tell you how many times I've had to tell one of the counter salesgals, (when she couldn't find what I was looking for) -- that "JAMO" is not spelled "YAMO"!!! AAAAAAAGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHRRRRRR

The other night I was lost downtown trying to find a restraunt I had dinner reservations at, and was running late becuase of traffic... It is called the "Dahlia Lounge" -- I called information 3 times because the operator(s) kept saying there was no such place!!! I finally asked the third one, how are you spelling it? She (in a very strong southern accent) said...
"D o l l y a"!!!

Oi Vey!!!

Record Snow in Toronto
By Steve McIntyre
The National Post reports:

A winter storm dumped more than 30 centimetres of snow on the Toronto area yesterday, with some parts of southern Ontario receiving as many as 50 centimetres of snow. Toronto usually receives approximately 30 cm of snow during the entire month of December. Yesterday�s snowfall likely trumped the previous record of 28 cm set on Dec. 11, 1944.

I can confirm that this storm was real.

In a statement from Bali, Al Gore warned:

if Canada did not immediately change its ways, it would be hit with more winter storms.

Gore added that climate models showed that global warming would lead to more Canadian snowfall or less snowfall or about the same amount of snowfall or all three and that the need for change was urgent.

Stephen McIntyre of Climate Audit was unable to comment because he was shoveling his driveway. From poolside in Bali, the Canadian delegation said that McIntyre could shovel out their driveways when he was finished.

A true "polictical" opinion if I ever heard one.

Even IF Global warming were due to cars & factories etc... There isn't a hell of lot that will change overnight.
You can't tell people to park their cars at home.
Look at what is happening in China too --- with their new economy, people are buying up cars like crazy - who have never owned cars before.

There are simply too many people on this planet --- Waaaaaayyyy too many.

And the new car from India's Tata Motors, selling for around $2500. Few more "never owned cars" joining there!

Yeah, and a fully loaded, leather interiored SUV for $14,000.


Chinas car usage is already at about 1/2 that of the U.S. and literally exploding off the charts.

This stuff scares the hell out of me.

Just a thought. If global warming was caused by cars then why is the largest "hole" in the atmosphere above the uninhabited artcic circle? I didn't even know that penguins and polar bears drove SUV's.
I long for a better world. One in which a chickens motives will not be questioned when mearly crossing the road.
