Things I Know

  • Here’s another free marketing idea, this one for Apple Corp.  They should take up medical research with the goal of developing artificial human organs.  They should develop a device to allow blind people to see.  They can call it the iEye.

  • Thursday night, around 9:45, the phone rang and my wife answered.  The caller said she was calling long distance conducting an opinion survey.  My wife said, “Do you know it’s 9:45 at night?”  The caller replied, ““What kind of question is that?”  First, it wasn’t a rhetorical question, lady.  And second, we’re taking a survey too.  You don’t have to get snippy about it.

  • So they are trucking snow into Vancouver for the Winter Olympics.  Can this be a surprise?  I mean Vancouver is hardly the snow capital of Canada.

  • St. Vincent’s Hospital in Greenwich Village was once one of New York City’’s premier hospitals.  My mom graduated from its nursing school.  It’s sad to think St. Vincent’s may go out of business.

  • A car is approaching you at a right angle and that car does not have a stop sign at the intersection where you are stopped because you do have a stop sign.  Do not proceed and cause the other car to jam on its brakes and screech to a stop.  The other car has the right of way.

  • I thought I had a job interview this week, but unless I blew the guy away, that’s not what it turned out to be.  His staff didn’t tell him why I was there and didnt give him the resume I sent in.

  • The TV show “Lost” doesn’t stretch credulity.  It smashes credulity into itsy bitsy, teeny, tiny pieces.

  • If anyone thinks money will solve all their problems, I offer two examples to prove it’s not so.  Abraham Shakespeare was murdered after winning $30-million in the Florida state lottery.  And Cameron Douglas, whose father and grandfather are world-famous movie stars, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for drug dealing.

  • I don’t think money would give me a problem-free life.  But most of my current problems are money related, and it would be nice to try some new problems for a change.

  • The word “February” has two r’s in it.
