Drink Up, Folks!

I’m your last chance, friends!  They’re coming for you.  They’re going to take your guns, raise your taxes, and rape your women. And that’s just the illegals and terrorists!

We’ve got to get the magic wall up! FAST! No more aliens, no more drugs (sniff) – you’ll be able to walk streets free from crime on your way to NEW, HIGH-PAYING JOBS! Drink it up!

I can do it, folks!  I can do it alone because I’m smarter than the generals, richer than God (it says so in Chapter 2 of the Bible!) and I’m really, really attractive to women too!  That’s why they let me grab their pussies right away!

Drink up, America!

Some younger readers might not understand the now common phrase “drink the Kool Aid.” It means to blindly accept an idea without understanding its grave consequences. The term came from the 1978 mass suicide in Jonestown, Guyana when over 900-cult followers of Reverend Jim Jones were persuaded (some against their will) to drink grape Kool Aid which contained lethal poison.

New FBI Clinton Investigation?

Saturday, October 29th, 2016

There MIGHT be something negative about Hillary Clinton in emails from her top aid’s husband (or his third cousin’s sister or the cab driver who gave him the name “Carlos Danger.”) Conclusions won’t be known until after the election.  Yaaaaawn…………………………..

But How Many Days Would June Have?

Friday, October 28th, 2016

In 1902, George Eastman of Eastman Kodak and others, figured out that the Gregorian calendar, which had been in use for thousands of years, didn’t make sense. There were different numbers of days each month and even a different number of days every four years. Different countries added their own strange flourishes contributing to a general mayhem of conflicting dates

After a good deal of research, Eastman decided that if the 52-week year was divided into four quarters of exactly 13 weeks each, everyone would benefit. At least it would be a good start. The months would keep the same names and each would be 28 days long with a short “month” between June and July (named “Sol”)   in which everyone could take a vacation (as they do in Europe).

Billing cycles, accounting systems, delivery schedules, even payroll periods, all over the world, could be coordinated into one logical grid. Industries and businesses, both here and abroad, would mesh on the same, predicable course.

But resistance to change takes many forms. One is stupidity (“On what day would the Fourth of July fall?”). Another is confusion (“What would happen to all the extra days?”). And, of course, there was a flood of traditionalism (“If 12-months a year were good enough for my grandparents……..”).

Eventually Eastman got frustrated with the whole business and gave up the idea – except in his own company which enjoyed a 13-week business calendar until 1989.
