Be afraid. Be very afraid.
I learned this via Wait! Wait! Don't Tell Me! a current events quiz show [and a great news source].
Airlines will soon begin issuing immobilization bracelets before flights. If you turn out to be a terrorist and start posing a threat to other passengers and/or staff, a jolt of electricity will be sent through the the bracelet temporarily disabling you so that you can be wrestled to the floor and handcuffed to your seat for the duration of the flight.
WHO THINKS UP THESE THINGS?
You should eye your neighbors askance-- particularly if they own a dog:
Pet-owners are more likely than non-pet-owners to vote for McCain.
I am currently living with a cat though its not entirely by choice. I hadn't planned on adopting Jake -- but when he wandered into my life I didn't have the heart to say no.
Maybe that distinction accounts for my freakish plan to vote for Obama even though I'm absolutely un-thrilled by his voting record. Yes, there's a pet in my life but I'm not a true-believer. . . .
So, "Do you have pets? Who are you planning to vote for?"
WHO THINKS OF JUXTAPOSING THESE QUESTIONS?
Of course, McCain would be better cast as pet than president.
I had heard some time ago that there is a negative correlation between eating curry, even occasionally, and Alzheimer's Disease.
Now, I hear that there is a positive correlation between eating tofu and dementia.
Trade-offs, trade-offs. :.-(
Wellllllllllll -- there's not that much tofu in hot and sour soup, anyway, is there?
[Maybe if I sprinkle in a little curry???]
