A man went to the DMV to get his driver’s license renewed. It was very crowded, and the line inched along slowly for almost an hour. Finally the man got to the clerk, who looked at the man’s form and then snapped his picture. The man inspected his photo for a moment and then complained to the clerk, “I was standing in line for so long that I look grouchy in this picture.”
“That’s okay,” answered the clerk. “That’s how you’re going to look if the cops pull you over, anyway.”

How many feet on each side of the U.S.-Canadian border are required by law to be free of trees, brush, and other obstructions?

10 feet. There is supposed to be a 20-foot-wide boundary vista along the entire 5,525-mile border.

THIS DAY IN TV

On July 1, 1941, the Federal Communications Commission gave the legal approval to two TV stations to broadcast TV signals. Both were New York–based TV affiliates of radio networks: CBS’s WCBW and NBC’s WNBT. They were the first ever TV stations. WNBT aired a baseball game that day, which included another first: the first TV commercial. It was for Bulova watches. Cost of the ad time: $4.
