The Scarlet Letter is forever.
I’m with you, except for pitchers hitting, which is boring. Much more exciting to have Albert Pujols try for 700 this year as DH.
How does it make the game more active?
7 seasons. Worth watching again, because it’s so long ago I won’t remember the plots. Only one season is streamable, and that’s on Amazon. But I see my public library has DVDs of all seasons! I have a DVD player around here, somewhere :)
Mayor, not major!!
From one respect, the story of Rudy is a sad one. Successful prosecutor. Well regarded major. Now a ridiculous laughingstock, known more for his press conference at Four Seasons Total Landscaping than his stints as a public servant.
It would be funnier if his antics didn’t threaten the survival of American democracy. Much funnier.
A cashless society also means that intermediaries (Visa, MasterCharge, Discover …) get a cut of everything. It’s like an extra tax.
I had a stationary bike. After a few years, I had done 12,500 miles on that bike — halfway around, at the equator. But I wondered what degree of north latitude would be 12,500 miles long (so I could see what cities were at that latitude). I thought I’d figured it out, but wanted validation. We were having parent-teacher conferences, so I asked the 7th grade math teacher. She took the problem and said she’d get back to me. Never did. When my daughter asked about it, she said she’d lost the problem — but didn’t ask for another copy.
I repeated this with math teachers each year. Never got an answer.
But, I posted the problem on a cycling site, and got 3 answers (all correct) within minutes.
If you’re curious, #Meg O’ Your Heart has the answer above.
Yes, I know it’s just a cartoon, but I had the same thoughts. All 3 kids should be much farther away.
Similar story: Discovered I’d lost my keys Wednesday trying to get into my condo’s stairwell. Retraced my steps. Found a key ring my daughter had lost some weeks earlier along the way. Gave up, took my backup set and had new keys made. Went to test the new keys in that same condo door, and found my “lost” keys stuck in that lock — obviously somebody had found them nearby and stuck them in the lock. (My thanks to that anonymous benefactor.)
