Reminds me of a joke:

A man wandered through the desert, desperate for water, when he saw something far off in the distance. Hoping to find water, he hurried toward the oasis, only to find a little old man at a small stand, selling ties.

The thirsty man asked, "Do you have water?"

The salesman replied, "I have no water. Would you like to buy a tie? They are only $5."

The man shouted, "I do not need an overpriced tie. I need water! I must find water!"

"Okay," said the salesman, "If you continue over that hill to the east for about two miles, you will find a lovely restaurant. It has all the ice cold water you need."

Muttering, the man staggered away over the hill. Several hours later he staggered back, almost dead.

"They won't let me in without a tie!"

I'm not sure what you are trying to say in that sentence. My keyboard is wireless. But if I saw a mouse pad on one side and the mouse on the other, I would know that someone besides the normal user had been at the computer. Nothing to do with the keyboard or whether it must plug into itself.

Because it's not so much about Betty Friedan as it is about how the the book came about. A progressive writer belonging to Marxist circles in the 1930s, '40s, and '50s was rather common, especially to people who consider labor unions to be communist. Friedan always considered herself a writer, even when she was a housewife.

Credit goes to mental_floss magazine. Yeah, the young people who reject the word "feminist" because it's been painted as a pejorative have little concept of a time when women had so little power and so few real choices in life. While The Feminine Mystique was published as sociology, it is now history. And you know what they say about those who do not learn from history.

Two observations. 1. That woman is very brave to eat anything with barbecue sauce for a video while wearing a white top.

2. I've never really understood the chicken wing craze. For most of my life, chicken wings, like gizzards, were only eaten when you couldn't afford any other part of the chicken.

Well duh. This is not the "worst possible profile," because the picture looks good. But if she were to post the same thing with a really ugly picture, she'd still get responses. There are guys who assume that IF you have a profile on a dating site, that in itself signals that you MIGHT be willing to have sex with them.

No, I've never posted on a dating site. I looked at one when I was single, and when I narrowed it to local guys, I found I knew most of them already. And their ex-wives.

That goes with the rest of the post so well. Several commenters in the thread said it wasn't nice to make fun of a little girl ...but then realized it was a grown man making fun of his own past, so then it was suddenly okay.

When choosing names for my daughters, my mother told me to make sure the name would sound okay right after "Senator" or "Chief Justice." So they have old fashioned but not obsolete names. I was afraid there would be many girls with the same names in their classes, but no. The other girls all have trendy names I can't spell.

All that plus Superman has been made too perfect over time. Batman has his psychological problems, but they're not pleasant. And then Thor contrasts them by being a good-looking goofball because he's a fish out of water in the modern world.

It's not such a matter of sinfulness as separation from the rest of the sinful world. Electricity comes from a grid connected to the outside world, whereas an engine is self-contained. Now, you could talk about the fuel, but that would be beyond my knowledge of Old Order Amish.

The seven-branch menorah is the one used in the ancient temple, and has become symbolic if Judaism. The nine-branch menorah is for Hanukkah, symbolic of the eight days of miracle oil, plus one to light them all with.

We need more bright colored cars! The car I have now is gray, and I have trouble finding it in a parking lot. I've had three gray cars, not by choice, and they are impossible for other drivers to see.
