Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

U.S. History - According to Facebook... The Space Shuttle is perhaps the most recognizable symbol of a benevolent United States in the world. You show anyone anywhere a picture of the shuttle and they immediately think of the US. It has become perhaps even more recognizable than the Statue of Liberty (people no longer go through Ellis Island). Cutting the Space Shuttle program is a big mistake (if even just for the public relations impact)... For anyone who hates assholes that text in theaters... JD Drew will make over $94 million for his career. He has been selected to just 1 All-Star game over his 14-year career. Has there ever been a player paid more who only made 1 All-Star game?... I seriously doubt there's a truck-full of demand for this product... I admit that every time I'm in an elevator that has a female computer voice that says, "Going down." I have dirty thoughts... Interesting article on Ernest Hemingway. It reminded me of the quote, "Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't after you”... Speaking of Hemingway - his first book The Sun Also Rises was originally called Fiesta and then The Lost Generation. In England it was published as Fiesta... Cool- Videos Shot From Cameras Mounted on the Tips of Fireworks... Adolph Hitler's sister-in-law was named Bridget. Bridget Hitler. That just sounds funny. Like the name of an Irish punk band... Speaking of Hitler - Interesting read about an inch of hair that represents infinite evil
