NO it was not a joke. I was watching a re run of Cash Cab and learned this FACT, that Poland was run by a PM with a twin brother.

That's pretty cool.

Well, it took more than today. I finished listened to Michelle Obama's book. I did not know she was such a reluctant first lady. She was actually not all that thrilled about being involved with politics at all but gave up her career to support her husband's run for, and subsequent time in, the presidency.


Her mother was also reluctant to be so close to politics and so far from home but went along to help with the girls.

You know, I should probably start with  the expectation that everything Brian says is a joke.  It might cause me less confusion.

If you think the humor of those jokes has been abducted by aliens, then all would be clear.

Brian said it wasn't a joke, and I'm happy to take him at his word.

Having been bullied growing up, and even as an adult having learned people will not always like you, and rub you the wrong way. In my 53  years of life, my biggest lesson is that everyone shits and pees and farts and will die just like me. The good thing about getting old is that giving a fuck isn't a priority.

In that case, should getting old have also caused you to give fewer fucks for all those tiresome and repetitive self-important editorializing you seem unable to restrain your self from bombarding the forum with?

RE: What Do You Know Today That You Didn't Know Yesterday?
This is something I didn't know yesterday.

Francois l'Olonnais, a French pirate, barely escaped with his life in 1667 while attempting to travel overland to sack San Pedro in Honduras.  His force was ambushed and all but obliterated by the Spanish.  l'Olonnais and a few confederates managed to escape into the jungle, where they captured a handful of  Spaniards.

The pirate demanded to be shown a route to San Pedro that wasn't guarded by the Spanish.  When his captives refused,

'He drew his cutlass, and with it cut open the breast of one of those poor Spanish, and pulling out his heart with his sacrilegious hands, began to bite and gnaw it with his teeth, like a ravenous wolf, saying to the rest: I will serve you all alike, if you show me not another way'.

That this itch probably isn't going to go away on it's own.

That I can belt out a reasonably impressive rendition of Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On". It was randomly selected for me to sing in a karaoke contest at work.
I won first prize: A $25 Panera gift card.

Which brings me to another thing I know today that I didn't know yesterday: That Panera has a Modern Caprese sandwich that is truly out of this world.
