09/20/20 Just Care

Sunday, September 20, 2020

"To make a difference in someone's life, you don't have to be brilliant, rich, beautiful, or perfect. You just have to care."

"I've gone wireless."

from NEW-CAZ
A man and his clone were walking along the rim of the Grand Canyon. 
The man and his clone were identical except for one thing - the clone loved to use foul language. 
The man didn't want to listen to his clone ranting all day, every day, using that kind of language, so he pushed his clone over the rim. 
That resulted in the first obscene clone-fall.

--In 1973, Billie Jean King won the Battle of the Sexes. From timeanddate: "The mixed gender tennis match between top tennis player Bobby Riggs and Billie Jean King was held in Houston, Texas after Riggs won another mixed gender match against Margaret Court earlier in the year. The matches were prompted by Riggs’ comments that even at an age of 55, he could beat any female tennis player. King beat Riggs and took home the $100,000 prize money. The match was and still is one of the most viewed tennis matches on television - it was watched by about 90 million people around the world."
