Henry and Olivia, both 65 years old, were celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary. A fairy appeared and said to them, “Congratulations! I’m here to grant each of you one wish.”
Olivia said immediately, “I want to travel around the world.”
The fairy waved her wand, and poof! Olivia had a ticket in her hand for an around-the-world cruise. Then the fairy asked Henry what his wish was. He said sheepishly, “I want a wife who’s thirty years younger than me.”
So the fairy waved her wand, and poof! Henry was 95 years old!
When it comes to the World Wide Web, what is a metaverse?

A virtual 3-D online representation of reality. The word metaverse is a combination of meta (meaning “beyond”) and universe. It was first used in the 1992 cyberpunk sci-fi novel Snow Crash, by Neal Stephenson.


In April 1965, BBC Television interviewed a professor from London University who announced that he had perfected a technology that would allow odors to be transmitted along with television broadcasts. To demonstrate it, he put ground-up coffee and onions in the “Smellovision” transmitter … and told viewers, “For best results, stand six feet away from your set and sniff.” It was, of course, a hoax … but several people actually called in to the network to report that they had smelled the odors in their homes. Some even said that the smell of the onions had made their eyes water.
Bette Davis starred on the ’80s soap Hotel, but said it was so smutty they should rename it Brothel.
