Why do we park on a driveway and drive on a parkway?

Why do we cook bacon, but bake cookies?

If I take a pair of scissors, and cut a pair of pants in 1/2...


... and I throw away 1/2...

... will what I have left be considered a pant?

-------------

Christians have been saying that Jesus is coming soon.

They have been saying this, for well over 2000 years.

I suppose, this could qualify as the longest running orgasim in all the history of the world.

Of course, that's to be expected: Jesus was such a showoff-- what with the water-to-wine trick, and all that skippin' and jumpin' on the water and shit.

It's no wonder they killed his ass.

---------------

I don't know about you? But the next time I fly in an airplane? I think I'll get in the plane, not on it. These things fly at 10,000 feet, and you'll freeze your ass off, if you try riding on the damn thing.

And when did stewardess and stewards become flight attendants? Are they somehow helping the plane to fly? No! They bring the frickin' minature packets of stale nuts (you know-- the ones with roughly 5 1/2 peanuts each, that a starving squirrel would refuse on the grounds that it's insulting) and those tiny 1/2 cans of soda.

I know why they only bring 1/2 cans-- do you? If they brought everyone full cans of soda, the frikkin' bathrooms would fill up with pee before the plane took off.

---------------

We (as a species) have managed to fly people to the moon and back. But we apparently cannot build an airplane that is immune from the effects of a 300 miliwatt cell phone.

---------------

Someday, in the future, people will wonder why they "dial" a call by telling the smartphone embedded in their left mastoid, who they wish to call.

And these people will look on the internet for the origin of the word "dial" and they will find that "dial" refers to some ancient short commercials from the age of 2D television [way back, to before direct brain programming], about a brand of something called 'soap' that also fought the mysterious ailments called 'perspiration' and 'odor'.

And these people will be confused, wondering what the hell making a phone call had to do with ancient, barbaric bodily functions, long since made obsolete by virtual reality and virtual relationships.

And they will correctly conclude that the people of the 21st century were nuts.

But for all the wrong reasons...

I know what a dial phone is because one is actually my primary phone. I do have a touch tone to use when absolutely necessary like spending hours getting through the stupid automatic customer service systems that don't want you to explain your problem to a real person.

I am so confused now.
I'll drink to that. Or anything else for that matter.

Hee hee, made you sing silly songs. Cheer

DT and Bob - lol.

John - my great grandmother refused to use dial telephones - they freaked her out. She was accustomed to a phone they just picked up and asked the operator to put them through to whomever they wanted to speak to. Someone else always had to dial the phone for her, and it ticked her off if we tried to get her to do it herself.

Later, after she was gone and we got touch tone phones, I always wondered what she would have thought about that. I have a very good idea what she would have thought.

Now I frequently reflect back to the days when we always dialed our calls, and practically no one had answering machines yet. We took the time to dial every call, and if the line was busy, we tried again later. I think most of us had a lot more patience back then (and more free time, too). Now we have all these ways to get in touch with people, and if someone is unavailable many are in a tizzy wondering why it's so 'hard' or taking so long to reach who they want to talk with.

So much for patience.

Yeah I remember as a kid having rotary dial phones. And we didn't have touch-tone in our area probably until the mid-80's (small town). And of course back then you had to be rich to own a car phone. And they were car phones, too, none of this handheld phone business unless it was one of those Motorola bricks.
You're just jealous because the voices are talking to me and not you.
