If franks are called hot dogs, why don’t we call cold cuts cold cats? To be frank, no matter how hot those dogs are, the hero is always the sub in a deli, and that must hurt. Hot dogs have feelings, too, after all.
Lawyers are expensive. Good lawyers are even more expensive. When the case goes to court, the outcome – and the cost – is unpredictable. If only we could get a coupon for when we need their services. Perhaps, an early bird special if your trial is before 10 am.
Some say that dragons exist in folklore because prehistoric men still saw dinosaurs. Who is to say it wasn’t possible? After all, a lot of reptile species have been around from prehistoric times. In fact, some are still called dragons, such as Commodore Dragon. There were even winged dinosaurs, the ancestors of birds. Some of Continue Reading
Noisy neighbors? The curse of sharing walls. You simply have no control over who will move in next door. It could be a maniac, a screamer, a hard-of-hearing heavy metal fan, or even worse, a concert pianist. The only thing you can do at that point point is either move out or open your door Continue Reading
Archeologists have stumbled upon a cave painting that suggests that commercial flights began as early as the Stone Age
No, it wasn’t the Wright brothers, not even Michelangelo. Mankind would not wait thousands or hundreds of thousands of years to fly. We’re too ambitious for that. The first time we laid eyes on birds, we wanted to copy them. We wouldn’t just let them do something that we can’t. Flying was probably invented even Continue Reading
Ah, sense of entitlement! We see it everywhere. From the guy who let’s us hold the door for him while he walks straight through to the lady who cuts the line at the post office. What are they thinking? If the rest of us tried this, the door would most likely hit us in the Continue Reading
When Sergeant LeRoy was asked to establish a SWAT team, apparently there was a major misunderstanding
There just have to be a lot of mishaps within the police force. There should be a book published about police errors. It would make a very entertaining read. Just don’t read it while you’re driving. Let’s assume that you are bothered (“stalked”) by vicious flies and you call 911 for help. Will they send Continue Reading
“We decided not to go digital with our research reports. We trained Hector, instead, to sniff out pertinent information from our lab notebooks.”
Chemical research is uniquely different from other R&D in that chemicals smell. You can probably tell what experiment was done just by smelling the lab notebook pages. Wait, that gives me an idea… Could dogs be trained to find lab reports based on the chemicals that were used in the experiments? Maybe that’s how it’s Continue Reading
Some jobs sound easy when you just look at the job title. Sometimes you have to have experience in the profession to know what the words mean. One of the reasons why there are job interviews is to make sure that there are no misunderstandings.
One of our biggest fears is flying. There is just something deeply unsettling about being high up in the air in a flimsy container. Anything can happen, even the most absurd like a bug on the windshield, and you start hearing weird noises, the engine starts malfunctioning, the passengers start panicking, the doors swing open, Continue Reading
