Random Thoughts.

When discussing the Buddhist Goddess of Compassion who, in many legends has 1,000 hands DO NOT ask if her name is Bukkake when most everyone else has something available to throw.


It's Guanyin


When assembling Ikea furniture for the utility room, it really helps if you learned to make model cars and planes without the use of instructions as a child. Things go much quicker.


When pulling up next to a Hummer in Ohio with Nobama stickers and a license plate HAMM, while the choices are many, it is apparently annoying to ask if his other car has EGGS or CHEESE for its plate. When they get pissed, asking "how did that Nobama thing work for ya?" just makes things worse as you cackle while driving away.


Why didn't Rotary telephones have a Q? Some had Z with Operator, some didn't but none had Q. It means that, in the Fifties there could not have been the phone number Queen 4 6969.

On Election Day VEET, the Hair depilatory company released the following advertisement.

And why is it that there has not been a single person arrested in Chicago wearing a Bush T-Shirt but on the other hand...

I used to hang out in one of those ovens at night listening to shortwave when they weren't on station.

The top one pic is a fully restored unit from a US Sector listening post in West Germany. The bottom one was a CIA unit, fully restored that was stationed in Scotland.

Isn't being arrested embarrassment enough?
