Wednesday, July 24, 2013

Sheila’s grandson and his wife were coming to visit her in her new Florida condo for the first time. She gave them very detailed directions to her apartment: “You come to the front door of the Coral Bay Tower. Near the door, you’ll see a big panel of buttons. I am in apartment number 1408 on the fourteenth floor. With your elbow, push the button for 1408. I will buzz you in. Come inside the lobby; the elevator is on your right. Get in it, and with your elbow, hit the button for the fourteenth floor. When you get out, I am on the left. With your elbow, hit my doorbell.”
“That sounds easy, Grandma,” her grandson said, “but why am I hitting all these buttons with my elbow?”
She snapped, “What, you’re coming empty-handed?”

Video games, delivered by cable

Today, it’s commonplace for video-game fans to download games over the Internet through services like Xbox LIVE or Wii Virtual Console. But the idea started back in 1981, when cable companies across the US began offering the PlayCable service. Users paid $10 a month to rent a PlayCable adapter, which plugged into the cartridge slot on their Intellivision game console. Then they tuned their cable boxes to the Intellivision Channel and selected a game from four choices, which changed monthly. The system was slow—all of the game codes were sent out individually, so if a user wanted to play Space Armada, for example, the adapter would wait until the code for Space Armada cycled around, then download it. PlayCable was discontinued in 1983, when Intellivision games became too graphically advanced to send out over cable TV lines.

    Law & Order was very good to it's character actors. Many of them went onto have starring roles in the series, even if their arms were empty. emoticon

What was controversial about the U.S. postage stamps issued to honor journalist Edward R. Murrow, artist Jackson Pollock, and blues guitarist Robert Johnson?

Their designs were all based on photos showing the honored individual with a cigarette, but the cigarettes were airbrushed out of existence on the stamps. The 29-cent Murrow and Johnson stamps were issued in 1994; the 33-cent Pollock stamp, in 1999.

Bob and Bill arrived at the Pearly Gates together. Bill asked Bob how he had died, and Bob explained, “I froze to death. How did you die?”
Bill replied, “I had a heart attack. You see, I knew my wife was having an affair, so I surprised her at home one day. There was a strange car in the driveway, but I found her alone in the living room. I ran around the whole house looking for the guy, and I got so worked up that my heart gave out before I could find him.”
Bob shakes his head, “That’s so ironic.”
“Why do you say that?” Bill asks.
“If you had only stopped to look in the freezer, we’d both still be alive!”

Wisdom from TV’s Batman

Robin: You can’t get away from Batman that easy!
Batman: Easily. Good grammar is essential, Robin.

Batman: Better put five cents in the meter.
Robin: No policeman’s going to give the Batmobile a ticket.
Batman: This money goes to building better roads. We all must do our part.

Robin: We’d better hurry, Batman.
Batman: Not too fast, Robin.
In good bat-climbing as in good driving, one must never sacrifice safety for speed.
Robin: Right again, Batman!

    And this is why I could never have been Robin. I would have slapped Batman and the show - as we know it anyway - would have been over. Thanks too for the funny! Great way to start the day. . . with laughter. emoticon
