We don’t have a thread for the random items that aren’t worth their own thread, or are just quick ideas or thoughts you want to convey. We do now!

Just found this on Twitter:

Howard Jones - New Song improvisation Part 1

Is a random thought in a thread intended for it, still random?

My first thought was that it was just a post count boosting thread.

It doesn’t matter which way I insert a USB plug, it will be wrong on the first try.


I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.

Same here. Sideways, right side up. Always wrong on the 1st try. sometimes more so, with bad aim.

Even if there were minuscule directional symbols I would ignore that

My very observant son taught me that horizontal USB's are always "open" side up. (The little metal windows should be the open ones, not the blocked-off ones.)

I'm currently on the road. The highway is punctuated regularly by signs that say "overtaking permitted when safe". Those last two words seem superfluous to me.

A polygamnist has multiple wives (or husbands). Is one who marries Siamese twins a paragamist?

Just asking.

There was a sign in a park near my home that read “Please keep horses off all purpose trails”.

Is marrying Siamese twins a really good idea or a really bad idea?

From the king of random thoughts, George Carlin:

“The reason I talk to myself is because I’m the only one whose answers I accept.”

“Here's all you have to know about men and women: women are crazy, men are stupid. And the main reason women are crazy is that men are stupid.”

“Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity.”

“Have you ever noticed that anybody driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac?”

“May the forces of evil become confused on the way to your house.”

“There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls. ”

“If you try to fail, and succeed, which have you done?”

“The main reason Santa is so jolly is because he knows where all the bad girls live.”

“Some people see things that are and ask, Why?
Some people dream of things that never were and ask, Why not?
Some people have to go to work and don't have time for all that.”

“I like it when a flower or a little tuft of grass grows through a crack in the concrete. It's so f*ckin' heroic.”

“Meow” means “woof” in cat.”

“Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.”

“Scratch any cynic and you will find a disappointed idealist.”

“I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman, 'Where's the self-help section?' She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.”

“Some people see the glass half full. Others see it half empty. I see a glass that's twice as big as it needs to be.”

I had the bad luck to be driving on the freeway today and it was a cluster(bleep) of people who reminded me of this.

"Mother thrived. … Promotions, raises, all manner of good fortune came her way, seemingly without any effort on her part at all. She was, in fact, protected by the ancient, nameless force that weaves itself around the destinies of but a few. Those few being the truly, stultifyingly f**k-stupid. If Mother stumbled in the street, it would be on a bar of gold. Whoever walked behind her would be decapitated by a crashing aircraft in her stead. She truly walked between the raindrops. All near her- from the crippled orphan to the saintly brain surgeon- were showered in lumps of toxic excrement. That one happened."
~ Garth Ennis, "The Boys"

Does anyone else ever play ‘The Tennessee Waltz’? It’s a song about how you're on a date, run into a friend, the friend dances with your date, steals your date out from under you.


I was dancin' with my darlin to the Tennessee Waltz
When an old friend I happened to see.
I introduced him to my darlin' and while they were dancin'
My friend stole my sweetheart from me.
I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz
Now I know just how much I have lost
Yes, I lost my little darlin' the night they were playin'
That beautiful Tennessee Waltz



What I want to know is if the name of this song about the incident is The Tennessee Waltz, yet they were dancing to The Tennessee Waltz in the song, how did that song go?

On Saturday, my fairly new Rode M1 microphone just failed to work. Never been dropped, not a mark on it, pop screens since I bought it.

I’ve never had a mic do this before. Anyone?
