Calories are tiny creatures that live in your closet and sew your clothes a little bit tighter every night.
---------------------
Sweat is fat crying.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines! Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover! -Mark Twain
---------------------
Watch your thoughts
They become words.

Watch your words
They become actions.

Watch your actions
They become habits.

Watch your habits
They become character.

Watch your character
It becomes your destiny.

In the world of computers, what are digital ants?

Virtual insects programmed to crawl through a computer network in search of worms, viruses, and other malware (short for “malicious software”). If an ant detects a threat, it lays down a digital “scent” that attracts other ants. The resulting swarm signals human operators that there’s a problem.

Friday Assortment

Janet was talking to her friend Kathleen. “My son,” said Janet boastfully, “has master’s degrees in psychology, sociology, and economics.”
“You must be so proud of him,” Kathleen said.
“Yes, I am,” replied Janet. “He can’t get a job—but at least he knows why.”

The national anthems of which two countries were composed by Nobel Prize–winning writer Rabindranath Tagore?

India and Bangladesh. The first verse of “Jana Gana Mana,” a hymn written and scored by Tagore in 1911, was adopted as India’s national anthem in 1950; the first 10 lines of his poem “Amar Shonar Bangla,” written and scored in 1906, became the Bangladesh national anthem in 1972.

GOOFY GADGETRY

Winky Dink and You was the first attempt at an interactive television show. It aired on CBS on Saturday mornings beginning in 1953 and was hosted by Jack Barry (later the host of The Joker’s Wild). Barry instructed kids watching the show to get out their Winky Dink kits (available via mail order for 50 cents), which included crayons and a “Magic Window.” Kids were told to put these clear plastic sheets on their TV screens (they stuck via static electricity). Barry would then introduce a wild-haired cartoon boy named Winky Dink and his dog, Woofer, who would go on an adventure. At some point, the TV audience would be encouraged to draw something on the Magic Window to help Winky and Woofer get out of trouble—a bridge over a river, a cage to trap a lion, or an ax to cut down a tree. Whatever the kids drew on the sheet would seem like it was part of the show—making the kids feel involved. The show was a hit, and more than two million kits sold over a four-year run. Concerns about the effects of “television radiation”—and parents’ complaints about kids drawing directly on TV screens—led to the show’s demise in 1957.

LATE-NIGHT LORE

After David Letterman moved from NBC late night to CBS in 1993, NBC refused to allow him to take his most famous comedy bits with him, claiming they were the network’s intellectual property. Instead of dropping the bits, Letterman and his staff simply renamed them:

* Viewer Mail became the CBS Mailbag.

* Paul Shaffer and the World’s Most Dangerous Band became the CBS Orchestra starring Paul Shaffer.

* The Top Ten List became The Late Show Top Ten List.

* The recurring character Larry “Bud” Melman used his real name, Calvert DeForest.


Do not eat: The glass front of a standard TV is actually leaded crystal, containing about 2% lead.

What catchy new name did the American Family Life Assurance Company adopt in 1992?

Aflac, which is an acronym of its old name. Founded in 1955, the company became widely known under its new name through TV commercials featuring an “Aflac”-quacking, insurance-hawking duck. (I do love that duck!!)
