Oh no, it’s another one of those opinionated days…

I would have no problem trusting my wallet to somebody who makes sure their bird feeder is always full.

Every time I repair a home appliance, I have at least one screw or nut left over. These are designed by an Engineer to be redundant “Extras”.

TNT would be screwed without “Law And Order”

If you circle the parking lot for 5 minutes trying to get a spot closer to the door at the Health Spa, you haven’t grasped the concept of exercise. (Thanks to the wife for that one)

5 years ago tonight, flight 3407 crashed 8500 feet from my house. Family survivors, keep on fighting the good fight for safer skies.

I only play Powerball when the jackpot exceeds $200 million. Because I got no time to be winning no 8 million dollars.

It’s one of those opinionated days…

Why isn’t there a Special Science Olympics?
Imitation is the sincerest form of theft. That said, there are few better feelings than when someone thinks enough of your post to share it.
Hanging around drunk people when you’re not drinking may let you see people at their best, but more likely, they’ll be at their worst.
Copying and pasting a photo into your status is too easy. Write what you think once in a while. You may piss off 50% of your friends, but the other half might admire you.
Except how to hang a roll of toilet paper. That’s just stupid.
If you want to bring the citizens of a country to their knees, block their supply of caffeine.
It’s nice that Andre Reed made to the HOF… too bad he’s most likely the last Bill who ever will.
Every time you block someone’s Facebook posts, an angel bursts into flames.
“Incorrect Password” would be an awesome password. If you don’t type it correctly, your computer will tell you the right one.
Whoever invented Curling clearly enjoyed Beer.
That teeny tiny print on credit card terms and conditions will never, ever benefit you.
Oldies Stations will never, ever play Rap.
I have no idea what the inside of my bank looks like.
The US deficit could be paid down a lot quicker if advertisers had to pay $100,000 every time they used the word “Amazing” in a commercial. A Wendy’s chicken sandwich might be tasty, but it will never, ever be amazing,
OJ did it.
Grammar and Spelling Counts.
I will never dial 444-4444 of my own free will.
Posting anything about Politics is extremely unlikely to get anyone to change their view from what it was before they read the post, but keep banging away anyhow. You’ll encourage your supporters, and enrage your enemies.
My generation is the last that will care enough about newspapers to subscribe for home delivery.
The “Greatest Generation” has come and gone. Young people will inherit the mistakes of a generation that took a good thing and turned it to Shit.
An angel just burst into flames.

modern hair styling
The Super Cuts ‘r Us Corporate Manual requires that the 9 year old fashion stylist ask what your plans are for the day, as a conversation icebreaker. Since you never get the same girl twice, I like to lie… “Me? I’m retired from The Shop now for ten years, and I’m headed to Langley for a reunion with some of the Boys from the Noriega days.” She has absolutely no idea what I’m talking about, but politely replies “Oh, That’s Nice”.

Saturday, January 18th 2014 – Ped’s WBIG News in a Capsule

Things I think I think while reading this morning’s paper…

  • I wonder if Dyslexics have a natural advantage at solving word puzzles?
  • Does anyone actually read the prices of stocks on the stock market pages, or is it a waste of newsprint?
  • Did William Mattar pull a last minute switch to starting a Veterans Advocacy Business from a Call Center just to get $500K from the Amherst IDA?
  • If people know they are buying a house in a flood zone, should the rest of the town be expected to give them money when their house floods?
  • Dennis Rodman is an idiot.
