Not much happening here lately , so it's time for a nonsense thread.
...and since I am good at nonsense, I'll carry the ball.
If the Mayans didn't have a defective calendar, would the average guy on the street even know that there was a Mayan civilization?...or care?
How come there are 6 billion Christmas ( close to half of them covers of 'Santa Claus is Coming To Town') songs but no songs for Kwanzaa?
Does anybody outside Canada know what the heck 'Boxing Day' is all about?
Speaking of Canadians, remember when 99 out of every 100 NHL players were Canadians, and they were so glad to be playing hockey for a living ( and not working winters on the farm in Manitoba) and they would sign a contract with the Chicago Black Hawks for a couple of thousand dollars and a few cases of beer?...what the hell happened, how come all of a sudden these guys want to be paid like celebrities....don't they know 3/4s of Americans couldn't tell you who won the last 3 Stanley Cups and that half of America doesn't even know how many team are in the NHL or that the only 3 hockey players most Americans can name are Wayne Gretzky, Bobby Orr and Gordie Howe ...Sidney Who?...Alexander WHO?
Is Bon Jovi , really that guy's name or did he make it up?
When visibility is "unlimited" , how come we can't see Neptune or Uranus with the naked eye?
Why can't we see this fiscal cliff?...and hasn't there been enough time to build a bridge so we don't "fall off"...even one of those dangerous rope bridges , like the one from Indiana Jones movies.
Why do we have so many policemen driving around ticketing people for going 60 in a 40 mile an hour zone (is this really reducing the number of traffic accidents?), when we have gunmen going on rampages in malls, schools and movie theatres?...shouldn't we take these cops off the highways and put them where they can save people from being shot?
