Stupid criminals. One of my sons has a friend that, in high school, was throwing a party. A couple of the attendees bragged about burglarizing a neighbor's house. Of course, someone turned them in. Ratting one's self out is really stupid.
If you get to thinking you’re a person of some influence, try ordering somebody else’s dog around.

Ah... Fond memories of a terrifying sign that I saw at the check-in counter in an airport in Tennessee that read "Please do not pack firecrackers in your checked luggage." Apparently they needed that sign. Didn't give me much confidence that I'd be flying with the sharpest bulbs in the litter.

It is said that if you wish to keep a secret, don't tell anyone. But who wants to waste perfectly good bragging rights? Something about a secret untold just festers in the mind.

I read a newspaper article once (yes, I'm that old) about an American forger who was making phony $20 bills. He was making them by cutting the corners off of legit 20s and pasting them onto the corners of legit singles. So, he was ruining $21 worth of valid currency to create a counterfeit $20 that fooled literally no one.

But he didn' t.

Tear one corner off of a $20.

Spend that $20. Nobody will refuse taking it.

Do that 4 times.

Turn $1 into a $20.

Unfortunately - most people look at the portrait on the bill - not the numbers on the corners..


So it still doesn' t work.
