    You left out the best clue: If you play A Day In The Life backward (the part that is just cacophonous noise that sounds like something played backwards, after the lyric, “I’d love to turn you on”), you hear (if you try) “Turn me on, dead man.”

    That might have been the launch of the scandals claiming all those evil rock bands were including destructive backwards subliminal messages in their songs.

    “I buried Paul there” is supposedly in Strawberry Fields, so it makes sense. :-)

    Around 1976, a friend who was a big Beatles fan hosted a party in which one of the activities was him walking us through the Paul-is-dead hoax, showing us all the clues.

    Doing something for the pleasure of hurting someone else is more sadism than bullying.

    The defining characteristic of bullying is that a person uses his strength to get something he’s not entitled to from someone weaker.

    The classic bully that assaults a kid for his lunch money isn’t doing it to hurt the kid; he wants the money. And he’s not entitled to it.

    I’ve lately seen the word “bullying” used to describe things such as people making coworkers feel bad by telling insensitive jokes and such. I’m not sure how they get bullying out of that.

    K-Tel also did one really successful original album – Hooked on Classics, medleys of just the famous parts of about 30 classical music pieces, played by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. The lead track from the album hit the Top 40.

    Really controversial, as it made classical music a little too “accessible” to philistines. But that’s what K-Tel was all about.

    K-Tel was all over the afternoon and late night television advertising in the US at the same time Ronco was hawking neat gadgets.

    The problem with that list is it’s just a list of every time someone was shot in an educational institution. Most of those incidents are just ordinary assaults where the shooter is mad at the victim or there’s a fight.

    What Zoe (like the rest of us) is more afraid of is indiscriminate antisocial mass killings of children, and glancing at the list, I think those are largely a recent phenomenon.

    And I’ve heard that, for some reason, they are mostly a US phenomenon.

    I believe there is software to do that easily now with strip shredders – you just lay out all the strips and take pictures of both sides and the computer puts them together.

    Most people recommend cross-cut shredders now for anything really important.

    People have been experimenting with electric cars as long as there have been electric motors, because the idea is obvious, but before Tesla, there were no practical electric cars. Golf carts were about the pinnacle of the technology.

    The problem was the battery. It took a lot of invention to come up with a battery to make a practical all-electric car.

    Every face I see in the US is blurred.

    It wasn’t always that way; I remember the novel ethical question came up: Is there a difference between exposing yourself to anyone who might drive by and exposing yourself to the entire world?

    I also remember the scandal when Google Earth (satellite pictures) showed a dead body. I don’t think one could tell it was a body unless one knew to look for it, but Google obscured it.

    But when the blocked sweat gland fills up with sweat (which doesn’t take much; it’s not designed for storage), it stops making more. So you don’t swell up with sweat.

    I’ve seen some of this. To type, they use a pencil. To pick up the pencil, they roll it off the edge of a table.The sacrifices people make for fashion ….
