I was just reading an article about, amongst other things, the US’s failed attempt in the 70’s to convert to the metric system. I suddenly realized that I remember a cartoon PSA about that. Less than 5 seconds later, thanks to the mighty Internet, I found it. The terrifying part was that I still knew the words to half of it, even though I probably haven’t even THOUGHT of this since the 70’s

Anyone else remember this?

One day late, but an awesome TBT pic my friend posted late last night. I’ve never seen this pic before and laughed my ass off when he posted it.
This was from the summer of 85 when we were on a 6-week cross country camping trip. 42 of us age 14 to 16, 6 counselors age 21, the director, and the bus driver.  We flew into Denver, got this bus (which was driven out from Boston), then spent the 6 weeks going from Denver, up to Calgary, down the coast to San Diego, then back up to Denver. Stopped at all the sites and did tons. Best summer ever!

The Proper Way to Cook Food in the Microwave

  • Remove meal from box
  • Read instructions
  • Throw box away
  • Cook for the 1st segment, per instructions
  • Remove from microwave, stir food, put back in microwave, per instructions
  • Grab box out of the trash to re-read how long the next step cooks for because you’ve forgotten already
  • Throw box away again
  • Cook for remainder of time
  • Pull box out of trash again to see how long food needs to stand for so that you don’t burn your mouth
  • Let stand for additional time than the instructions called for
  • Still burn the fuck out of your mouth anyway
  • Try to comply with instructions that say “Enjoy!” but find that step impossible to complete

Brilliant response!

Ok wait a sec, Mr/Ms Headline Writer, did she leave the kids in the car so she could go blow her boyfriend, or did she leave the kids in the car so they could blow her boyfriend?

Too close for comfort

On our way out to California yesterday, we got stuck in accident traffic. We literally had to stop suddenly (no slowing for a few miles first) and never moved an inch again for an hour and a half.

We saw all the emergency vehicles go by while we were stopped, meaning the accident had just happened.

When we finally moved again, it took almost no time until we were on the scene, and saw the 3 mangled cars. One was a rollover.

News reports today state that roads were open after a crash, stating the accident occurred at milepost 72.  I can’t remember specifically now, but we were either just past 73 or just about to pass 73 when we stopped. I.e., we were really fucking close, and could have easily been involved.

My wife decided to test out using Anti-HOLY-FUCK-THE-PAVEMENT-IS-HOT booties on Harley. He actually wasn’t fazed by it and walked normally after like 10 seconds
