Lead A Full Life, Or an Empty One, Just don’t give the Statisticians an Opportunity

Do you believe in amassing reserves for use in troubled times?

Do you believe in utilizing ALL of one’s resources to accomplish a goal?

WHO is correct?

So much of life depends on philosophy. Philosophy and art are probably the two most undervalued majors for college students.

I was a Physics major. I haven’t worked in my field in 33 years. That doesn’t mean I’m not a scientist. It means I am an AMATEUR scientist. And if you check the history books, the amateurs are the ones that did a lot of the discoveries. I suppose I could try to be an evil mad scientist, but I woke up from a nightmare about that a few minutes ago so it’s probably not a good option. I would probably have more nightmares.

As to using resources, in the past week I have spent hundreds filling my freezer due to sales. I don’t intend to ever go hungry. Some don’t worry about those things. Forget ants and grasshoppers!

Nature provides examples.

If you have to, give them the bird.

Telephone Tits

You might ask, exactly what are — telephone tits?

I’m glad you asked. It allows me to expound on one of my favorite subjects, historical advertising trivia!

Okay, I have through a gazillion photos looking for the Bell Telephone ad that ran in the early 70’s. It was featured in a mid 70’s edition of Hustler magazine. It was cited in the book “Subliminal Seduction”. And I have been unable to locate it. It showed a woman holding one of the old wooden box phones that had an attached microphone and an earpiece on a cord. It had two bells on the front. Guess where they were on the model. RING those bells, we have a winner!

BTW, my searches also yielded this,

I don’t duck the issues!

Reach out and touch someone!
Touch!
You might be surprised at their response be it a squeak or a giggle.

Should’ve Shari Lewis Shared Lamb Chops With Cher?

Yes, pork chops would’ve been inappropriate.

I’m tempted to leave it at that.

First time I saw Shari on TV my reaction was WOW what a babe.

First time I saw Cher on TV was on the Sonny and Cher Show. She was drawing interest for her displays of sideboob and bare skin below her navel.

There used to be a big variety of variety shows. Flip Wilson made an entertaining Geraldine.

My title is bugging me. My inner grammar-nazi can’t decide if it’s a split infinitive. “Should Have Shari Shared” or “Should Shari Have Shared”. I should have gone with the imperative “Shari should have shared.”

I’ll have to ruminate on that. I’m not one to say “No Gnus is Good Gnus.”

In the meantime, enjoy the Flip side.

Assessing the Emotional State of Bivalves

I really like this video.

There are seven women in the video. I consider them to be very attractive, but that isn’t the whole reason I like this clip. The lyrics are interesting too. It’s kind of a life metaphor, destination unknown. Life as a journey destination the grave. That probably wouldn’t be as popular.

Why are they attractive? You seldom see their eyes so it isn’t that. They have appealing bodies. So do lots of people. Their smiles? There are elements to that. Curiously enough researchers say that average features tend to be regarded as attractive. That makes sense if you think about reactions to features that vary away from the average. A Neanderthal brow ridge would not be pretty by most people’s standards. Chrystal Waters has an asymmetric smile. But she wears it well. In clips about the making of the video they talk about the challenge of keeping the lipstick free from smudges and bright. I do like their lips. What about those heels? How do you dance in heels like that?

I would be a bit unbalanced, but that is “Normal” for me. Unbalanced but happy as a clam, I try not to get steamed. I might clam up if I do, but irritation leads to pearls.

Immortality, Immorality with a Spot of Tea

In a thousand years who is going to know who you were? If you’re from Iceland they might all know. They’re good at keeping track of things like that. What was going on a 1000 years ago? Not the Magna Carta, not the Battle of Hastings {almost though}, the Icelandic Sagas?, Yes! They were going on.

Who gets remembered and how? Usually the despots and tyrants get remembered more than the furniture makers, stone masons, or bureaucrats. Tales of immorality get passed on. The young are taught from lots of sources, “See, that’s why you don’t do that!” What really amazes me are those people who try to convince their kids that they were angels. If you tell the kid, “I never did that. I was a good kid.” do you really think that will be more convincing than “Boy I really fucked up when I did that.”

The age of innocence was not a time for society. It was and is a time when the individual doesn’t know any better. Personality types really haven’t changed in a very long time. I really hated the show “Welcome Back Kotter”, but the theme song had a line, “Well the names have all changed since you hung around,
But those dreams have remained and they’re turned around.

Okay, that was weird. I guess even referencing it can be annoying. I’ll let it be annoying.

Perspective changes things. Art often reflects life.

Pay attention to those lyrics! Cigarette trees! Bums don’t need money! Cops have wooden legs! Is that their idea of role models!!!

What is this song about? Euphemisms and allegory might as well be another language in this racially sensitive and PC environment.

It wasn’t just the Depression era. Some real good lessons here too. Remember when nobody locked their doors? He mentions that. Of course he is willing to work for his rent and smoke the stogies he finds.

Thing is, young whippersnappers today don’t know how nice they have it. And they’ve lost all sense of decency. The even had hearings on it.

Well, they had one hearing. You ever wonder why slang changes? Maybe it’s to slip a few naughty references past the old fogies. Some slang doesn’t change much, and it’s meaning is usually pretty clear.

You ever had the hots for someone that’s been dead for a couple of hundred years? Kinda gross, they’d be all rotted away and mostly just bones. It’s just not very enticing to me. Time travel would be a different matter. Would you go back in time and fuck yourself? Would that be masturbation?

I’d better end this before I write something that might have a point.

Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fronder, Are You Listening Fern?

I have Mulberry trees. I have been trying to kill them for years. They’re very tough. I wish the plants I wanted to grow would be so hard to kill. Lately I’ve been using a mix of white vinegar, salt, and just a bit of dish detergent. And I nuke it until it’s almost boiling. It’s been stressing them. Everything that gets even a little bit of overspray dies. However it is supposed to be more environmentally friendly and the ingredients are cheap, so I’ll keep trying to kill them. I did ruin one sprayer that couldn’t take the mix of heat and temp. It bulged way out but didn’t spray. I know SOME of my readers will chuckle at that. Greg and Lou have been busy posting this summer. I have kept up watching, and I have been linking on Facebook. I just haven’t been over here as much. I posted Toxins and Toxins outtakes earlier. This one cracks me up.

and on SNL last week there was a parody of Michele Bachman and John Boehner. It’s actually the first time I’ve listened to Miley Cyrus sing. The parody was hilarious.
