2016-10-25T00:30:37.482-04:00Couple of years ago there was an AXE shampoo commercial that claimed that 85% of girls found dandruff on a man to be a turn-off. What the heck was wrong with that other 15% of women polled?

2016-10-24T00:30:15.129-04:00Did you know that the King of Spades on a playing card was originally supposedly designed to represent King David from the Bible? The sword he holds was supposed to be the sword used to cut off Goliath's head after young David killed him with a rock from his his sling.

2016-10-23T00:30:02.050-04:00On this date in 1850 Worcester, MA was host to the first National Women's Rights Convention. That put Worcester on the forefront of the woman's suffrage movement. Seeing how Worcester was also the birthplace of the birth control pill - it can be argued that Worcester was one of the most important cities in terms of woman's rights in the entire US.

2016-10-20T14:21:32.308-04:00In my opinion it is criminal that Warren Zevon is not already in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It is outrageous that he hasn't even been among the nominees - unlike Chaka "freakin'" Khan!

Bill worked in a pickle factory. He had been employed there for a number of years when he came home one day to confess to his wife that he had a terrible compulsion. He had an urge to stick his penis into the pickle slicer. His wife suggested that he should see a sex therapist to talk about it, but Bill said he would be too embarrassed. He vowed to overcome the compulsion on his own. One day a few weeks later, Bill came home and his wife could see at once that something was seriously wrong. "What's wrong, Bill?" she asked. "Do you remember that I told you how I had this tremendous urge to put my penis into the pickle slicer?" "Oh, Bill, you didn't!" she exclaimed. "Yes, I did." he replied. "My God, Bill, what happened?" "I got fired." "No, Bill. I mean, what happened with the pickle slicer?" "Oh...she got fired too."(image)

2016-10-17T10:56:48.885-04:00Yet another Teddy Roosevelt post. Probably the last for a while but I figured I'd add another of my favorite Roosevelt quotes:
"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat." - Theodore Roosevelt (Paris Sorbonne,1910)(image)
2016-10-16T00:30:12.842-04:00Hey look another post about Teddy Roosevelt! Roosevelt was very opinionated and didn't think very highly of Thomas Jefferson.
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.(image)

2016-10-12T00:30:31.918-04:00Since Y2K the Patriots have won 4 Super Bowls, the Red Sox have won 3 World Series, the Celtics won the NBA Championship, and the Bruins won the Stanley Cup. In addition since 2000 Boston College won 4 NCAA Hockey Championships and Boston University added another. If you wanted to include New England as a region - you could also add in Providence College's win in 2015 and Yale's win in 2013 (coached by Worcester's Keith Allain no less).
2016-10-11T10:33:02.460-04:00I'm getting older and my perspective is changing. I'm not at the "get off my lawn" stage but in many smaller things I've begun noticing a difference. What got me thinking about this was recently listening to the song, Lawyers, Guns and Money by Warren Zevon. I found myself listening to the song in a whole new way.
I was gambling in HavanaSuddenly now I'm thinking, "When is this guy going to grow up and handle his own damn problems? Why does his dad need to always bail him out?" Seriously - I was having those thoughts. Now I hear the song and I'm judgmental. I think "This guy either needs to stop habitually getting into these jams or come back to the US and become a responsible citizen."
I too a little risk
Send lawyers, guns and money
Dad, get me out of this
2016-10-10T00:30:10.801-04:00I believe that men and women are equal except maybe physiologically. Men are on the whole stronger but women can create new life (which is awesome). The idea of a woman not being able to drive or vote or even pick out her own clothes is inherently ridiculous to me.I believe that homosexuality is genetic and that homo and heterosexuals should have the same rights including the right to marry the one you love. I believe the idea that homosexuals should be stoned to death is barbaric and that the idea that there are no homosexuals in a country of 77 million (Iran) is farcical.I believe that slavery is not just wrong but an inherent evil that should be stamped out.I believe bacon is delicious.To some my beliefs make me an Islamophobe. To those people I say "Screw you!"Consider that the Westboro Baptist Church wouldn't even go so far as to disagree with some of the above sentiments yet they are rightly scorned and ridiculed in the US. How come that ridicule and scorn is never extended to Muslims who believe "Allah hates fags"?I stand behind my beliefs. Do you stand behind yours?EDIT: I wrote the above two years ago and still stand behind it[...]

2016-10-09T09:35:55.498-04:00Now there's no denying exactly what sort of person Donald Trump is and how unfit he is to be President. Bill Maher seems to have summed up the situation when he observed "The GOP now finds itself handcuffed to a dead hooker." Just a few weeks ago the bumper sticker "Trump/Pence 2016 - No Fat Chicks" would have clearly been seen as a joke - now?
