Well fer cryin' out loud...

I swear I saw an Off Topic thread earlier this evening. I even posted in it. Sure there were a few snarky comments, but by the end of the thread the OP had seemed to concede some of the issues. And I wanted to make a second post...but it's gone. Hmmmm. Methinks with some careful editing that thread might have been a teaching moment for all of us...

Then again, it's possible that we're all just unteachable.

Have you Searched at the top of this page Off Topic Discussions? I usually find what I am looking for when I go there.

I was trying to catch a stray thought one day, but it ran out in the street and got run over by a cement truck. I decided right then to let any others I stumbled across to run free.

Everybody is teachable. It's just that some of us take so much longer to learn. Ask me how I know this.



Stray thought #4127: Ever notice how all the arid areas of the world go around the globe in a circle and that's where all the deserts are? I wonder why?

I don't remember what I was looking for, but I used to use Alta Vista even before Yahoo! Now Yahoo! is on its death bed.

I used Alta Vista and before that, Veronica, Jughead and VLib. Google far surpassed all of them for comprehensiveness a long time ago, which is why it's on top.
