Did you get it back?
Yeah. 15 minutes later I reached into my pocket and discovered there was no folded paper there, so I went back and the girl had it ready and waiting for me.

Men socialize by insulting each other, but they don't really mean it.

Women socialize by complimenting each other, and they don't really mean it either.
That's good. Is that an original Borek insight?

OMG, Obama is the first president to have beer brewed in the White House.

I did not know that.

Ale to the Chief!

And my thanks to President Carter, for making it ok for all of us to do that.

Why do people vote for Republicans again?

OMG! I am learning so much today. (Thank you MLKJ*r for giving me the day off.)

Obama made his first tweet on a Macbook Pro.


I bought my first Macbook Pro just three days ago. I cannot stop playing with it, nor stop making twit type tweets all over PF.

*Has anyone else noticed that MLKJ is JKLM backwards?

I never noticed that, no. Now that I see it, I suspect it's the definitive proof we've been waiting for.

"There's a tiny door in my office, Maxine. It's a portal and it takes you inside John Malkovich. You see the world through John Malkovich's eyes... and then after about 15 minutes, you're spit out... into a ditch on the side of the New Jersey Turnpike. "

OMG! Obama was the first president to introduce a honey bee hive to the White House.

[OBAMA VOICE]
Who, says "Change", is just a bunch of metallic objects, you search for, underneath, sofa cushions, when you've run out of, beer money.....
[/OBAMA VOICE]

ps. I also bought a 32 gigabyte flashdrive on Friday.
It's always fun, on my path from childhood to old age, to translate gigabytes of storage capacity to $$$ over the years:
1975: 32 gigabytes would have cost you ~$13,504,000,000 (yes, that's billion, with a "B")
1980: 32 gigabytes would have cost you ~$6,000,000 (yes, that's million, with an "M")
Friday: $25 (yup. twenty five bucks....)

Ha! Screw all those who would point their fingers and call me a hoarder/pack rat:

January 1975 Popular Electronics, page 36, left column, near the bottom: "Bear in mind that only 17 cards will yield 65,000 words of memory"

Memory cards? WTH is a memory card?



How on earth did people function back then!?!?

I shall not go back to the year I was born, 1959, as that would just be ridiculous: $2,174,327,200,000 (yes. that's a "T", as in trillion, for 32 gigabytes of memory. Tubes were/are a bit more expensive to manufacture than, then this vacuum tube sized device sitting on my newly discovered coffee table.

I googled, and found out, that the planet above the moon, is Jupiter.

And now it is a bit to the right.

A girl I know told me she walked into some fast food joint and the girl behind the counter had a name tag that said "Girl" on it. So she said, "Hello, Girl! I'd like a McWhopper, fries, and a shake. The girl goes, "It's NOT pronounced 'GIRL'! It's 'JIR-ELL'! "
