At one point in his life, Hal Holbrook faced a momentous decision: to become the next Earth human Green Lantern or a struggling actor.

On this date an innocent wanderer from the land of Ox and Alex (Tsunami of Stupid) found herself in a strange and wonderful land. Although she had small hands, she did her best to get a grip. Some said too tightly, others not tight enough. Nonetheless, she disappeared into the vortex of want. If you look closely enough you can see her in the diamond dust.

On Labor Day in 1988, after mistakenly reloading casings with 9mm +p+ rounds, and then filling brass cases with ground venison, with both acts ending in tragic consequences and numerous lives being lost, Tous, a GT member hailing from Plain Old, Texas, vowed that for as long as he lived he would stamp out the ignorance of knowing the difference between a case, and casing.

Untold tens of thousands of lives have been saved since the advent of the internet.

People from Kansas, especially from Lawrence, Kansas, are fine upstanding citizens and have been since the 1850's. They get along especially well with their neighbors from Missouri. Their mascot, the Jayhawk, has long been revered as a symbol of integrity, justice, and moral soundness.

post-hostoric factoid:

In the year 5555
Your arms hangin' limp at your sides
Your legs got nothin' to do
Some machine's doin' that for you


It will be recorded that the machines are powered by Windows 37.

Apple was seized by the government in 2013 and declared a government asset because the hippie socialists ran out of other people's money. Note that Apple's net worth only lasted 13.5 days, but every man, woman and child in America now has an iPad and an iPhone 6.

Tux the penquin was declared an endangered species in 2015 and the last Linux computer was put in the middle of a federal ecology reserve and observed around the clock by Department of Agriculture bureaucrats that found themselves with nothing to do after the EPA managed to ruin the last farm in America.

itisbruno has other things hanging at his side.

When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, 'Look, here's what happened"

that is a classic.

They had publically-available television in 1928?

Was Snookie on then?

Through the ground-breaking work of Felix Gunderson and his dedicated team of tireless researchers, it has been conclusively proven that a rolling Lone_Wolfe gathers no moss.

This astonishing conclusion required over a decade of careful experimentation. It was delayed because Lone_Wolfe was occasionally reluctant to roll down a mossy hill. And then there was the whole, "I won't roll unless my dressing room has exactly 37 red M&Ms at all times."

There were also incidents where Lone_Wolfe insisted on being called lobo solitario and when asked to commence the experiment, growled, "No mas!"

For their work, Gunderson and his team were allowed to keep the M&Ms that weren't red.

Science is hard.

The residents of Misery, which is Native Floridian jargon for Missouri, who for times untold have had a tradition of doubting consequences or facts until actually seeing them for theirselves, make it seem like a contradiction, or oxymoron, that they would actually be the people that coined and then made famous the phrase, "Here, hold my beer and watch this."

Rutherford Birchard Hayes, the 19th POTUS, lost his reelection bid when it was found out that he had his internet connection disconnected for nonpayment of 23 "adult premium channels."

Shortly after having his service disconnected, but before allegations concerning his cable viewing became public, President Hayes and his wife decided to have a Easter Egg roll on the white house lawn.

During the Easter Egg rolling event, the POTUS' wife, who was a fan of late Queen Marie Antoinette, was quoted as saying, "Let them eat red M&M's!"

In the tradition of what George Washington Carver accomplished with peanuts, Felix Gunderson, a researcher and winner of 3 PRO-AM B.A.S.S. fishing tournaments, has been able to synthesize 37 nutritional supplements from ordinary moss.

His most accomplished product, Moss Butter, a creamy spread used on bread with jams and jellies, never really sold too well in Arizona.
