    Well, you've heard about what good deals you can get at those
    government surplus auctions. Who knows, you might put in your nickel
    bid, and end up buying one of those $25 mill toilets, $100 bill toilet
    paper rolls and all!

    I wonder if it comes with perfumed toilet water?

    I like to think that's what heaven is like. It's almost unimaginable
    to envision a steaming pile of crap left on those golden streets up
    yonder by some angel who couldn't make it to the heavenly commode!




    Yeah, they probably freeze too! Do you suppose that some of the
    shooting stars we are seeing nowadays are really falling pieces of
    shit? That would give new meaning to an expression someone told me
    that they used in their country for meteors: star shit!

    Interesting question. Do chickens piss? I've never seen it. And some
    scientists think that birds ARE dinosaurs. So maybe not!

    Well, in Hell they're not going to feed you anyway, or give you
    anything to drink, so it's not a problem. Except perhaps in that one
    room I heard about where the punishment is having to stand up to your
    neck in shit! And that's only during the coffee break. Then it's back
    on your head!

    I saw one cartoon where a guy had just poured himself his first cup of
    coffee in Hell. He yells, "Damn, cold! They've thought of everthing!"




    Good man! Proves he was thinking. Unlike whoever approved the plans
    for the Old Executive Office Building in Washington, DC. A huge
    building full of offices, but only one toilet!




    Perhaps.

    I have had the privilege to see St. Peter's Basilica. The place is
    absolutely huge! As you walk down the main aisle, there are four side
    chapels on each side of you that each looks as large as a full sized
    church over here! They brag that it's the largest church in the world.
    Although, some dictator down in Africa build a full sized replica!

    http://stpetersbasilica.org/floorplan.htm

    We saw the Pope speak too, the same one who's now dying. It was 1983.
    I'm not Catholic, but it was fun anyway. Saw the Sistine Chapel and
    craned my neck to see Michelangelo's beautiful paintings on the
    ceiling. That is where the conclave of cardinals will probably soon
    meet to choose a new Pope. They have a large museum too with corridors
    that go on for miles! They have a lot of Roman statues and other
    ancient art. But the male organs have been chiseled off of all the
    statues, and are said to be all kept hidden in a single room! No, I
    couldn't make this stuff up! Ha! Ha!

    I did appreciate that they served beer and wine in their cafeteria. At
    least that's a lot better than a lot of the blue nosed churches over
    here.

    I had to check my "Bird's Anatomy" on this one.

    Chickens and other birds have urethra but their bodies are much more
    efficient at conserving water than ours are. The urine comes out as
    the white stuff you see in their droppings, which is mostly solid.

    Thus birds should be very well suited for long space flights, or dry
    planets like Mars (or Dune?).

    Not Woolworth's...

    Wordsworth's:

    "SHE dwelt among the untrodden ways
    Beside the springs of Dove,
    A Maid whom there were none to praise
    And very few to love:

    A violet by a mossy stone
    Half hidden from the eye!
    Fair as a star, when only one
    Is shining in the sky.

    She lived unknown, and few could know
    When Lucy ceased to be;
    But she is in her grave, and oh,
    The difference to me!"

    - William Wordsworth

    Daylight Silly Time is here!

    My computer told me so.

    It's the morning when the government annually picks our pockets for an
    hour of our time, an hour stolen out of our lives. It is the truly
    shortest day of the year.

    Time simply disappearing from the clock! What would Einstein say?

    How do I set my sundial?

    What are clocks to me anymore? I keep no schedule, have no
    appointments. Clocks don't usually tell AM or PM. Whenever I wake up
    I have to see if it's getting lighter or darker to know if it's morning
    or night. Many stores are open 24-7. I only have to remember that
    alcohol is not sold here in our prudish state between 2 AM and 7 AM.
    That is the big important thing I have to remember!




    Why not?




    Or how about we all go out this lovely Sunday morn for a short stack,
    or a tall stack, or a scrumptious Krispy Kreme?




    With you.
