I think it is also a tie-in to the Japanese TV show (based on the anime) called "Terraformars", in which an attempt was made to terraform Mars by putting algae and cockroaches on the planet to create a simple biosphere. By the time the planet was ready for colonization, though, the roaches evolved into giant humanoid monsters.

OMG!!!!! I want one! Or 2!! This is so cool! The loin cloth issue could be easily hid if it's a female puppet in a skirt or dress. Would love to see more of this young man's invention.

Years ago I drove to work and as I'm gathering up my things after parking I noticed the my daughter's car seat was still in the back. With my daughter in it. Had to drive 25 miles back to day care. For months my wife would see me off with "Have a nice day. Don't forget to go to school."

I'm a fan. I stopped in Mt.Airy once, playing tourist, and have a photo taken at the statue there of Andy and Opie. For real trivia, if anyone reveals the identity of Mr. Schwump they will get a medal of commendation with oak leave cluster.

That's true (and don't get me started on "NEW-kyoo-ler"), but I think at some point you risk becoming a bit twee and precious if you pronounce everything exactly as the natives do. I'll bet it's common for residents in many countries to pronounce other countries differently than that other country's natives do. For example, most people in the US don't pronounce our southern neighbor "MEH-hee-koh".

I'm always bothered when certain countries are pronounced badly. For instance, why do we refer to the nations of "Eye-RAN" and "Eye-RAK"? The "I" has a softer sound, more like "ee-RAHN" and "ee-RAHK". To hear it spoken by our politicians grates on me, like hearing about "nucular" weapons.

You wrote: "it's actually pronounced ee-KAY-uh." That's not the pronunciation I heard in that Vine video. Sounds more like "ee-KEE-uh".

But glad to know that they say "eye-KEE-uh" is okay with them, as well. I'm so set in my ways, I doubt I could ever start saying it another way now. ;-)

For those unaware, Francis Bavier was downright HOT in her younger days. See for yourself: https://sp.yimg.com/ib/th?id=OIP.M016a257b80e3c833b037d7c98ed1c6feH0&pid=15.1

Mayberry is based on Andy's actual hometown, Mount Airy, N.C.I visited there about 10 years ago. Got a haircut at Floyd's Barbershop. The same barber that used to cut Andy's hair was still there. Visited the AG museum too. They have the actual Sheriff and Justice of the Peace plaques that were on the door to the sheriff's office. Pretty cool!

Seeing people smoking in the mall reminds me how it used to be allowed. Try that today and you'd have an angry mob on your tail. Same goes for the mullets.

A breath of fresh air! AT the local elementary school, kids through 3rd grade are not allowed to leave at the end of the day unless there is an adult to pick them up.

This should also include,

"Should my sons be doing said activity and should, as kids are want to do, one of them fall out of said tree and break an arm, I, the parent herby resolve the faculty and school of all responsibility because they, and I, know that both my sons were just being kids. As kids are wont to do."

For those of complaining of a hard day at your desk (including myself), take 5 mn and think about all the farmers, growers, cattle raisers etc out there. Think about their hourly wage. Think about their work capacity. Think about their pride in their job.

Often companies don't wait until an idea is well developed and ready for production. Sometimes patents are for throw away ideas they might come back to. Other times, some companies have quotas on patents. The people, working on the exact type of incremental improves you suggest they should, may not get enough district ideas suitable for a patent and throw out random ideas on the side (or just get bored). For various reasons, the ideas they are actually serious about might not show up in patents for some time.

Don't try too hard to decipher what a company thinks is practical and takes serious from patents, especially for companies large enough to have their own patent lawyers.
