Mispronunciations in just one newscast:

Athlete is two syllables, not three.

Triathlon is three syllables, not four.

Paraplegic is four syllables, not five.

I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

When you find a video on YouTube click on share and copy the address that gets highlighted. Above the text box here click on the little TV (still with rabbit ears, haha!) the last choice is YouTube...click that and box will pop up for you to paste the address/link in.

Got it. I've been annoyed with not being able to get the things posted like everyone else does. Laughat Now I have one more toe in the 21st century!

I had to ask a few times for help with things other were doing every day with ease. But then I know how to use an Etch-a-Sketch and a cash register with rows of buttons with just numbers on them and could calculate the tax in my head. Tongue

*and make change*

One job I had, just before I joined the US Navy, was as an accounting clerk for an insurance company. I used a Comptometer. https://www.google.com/search?q=comptome...8&oe=utf-8
Mine was made by Smith-Corona. One day the motor died, and the boss handed me a hand-crank to use until the repair man came out. Facepalm

I still know my multiplication tables through 20 by 20, and the squares of numbers through 50, by rote memory. The rest I can calculate in my head using algebra. Smartass

Making change seems to be pretty much a lost art. Rolleyes

Pssst, not to rattle your persona, but calculating the tax in your head and making change is you mathing. Big Grin

Had to buy readers so I could read a label.

A fucking label. With teenie weenie print.

But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

You're awfully young for presbyopia. That's for middle-aged people. Wink

RE: Ranting corner
Listening to a local non-denom megachurch's podcast of its morning youth camp sermon. Less than one minute in, "if you aren't smiling while you spread the Good News, I'm gonna walk over and give you a big Jethro slap!!" Around 1.5 minutes, "remember that Jethro Slap?"

--

Chas is right, that is young, we all know moms is only 29.

Need to think of a witty signature.
