Some Say It's For Lovers, United States

AND I QUOTE: "...Hillary Clinton has always been a strong woman and a passionate protector of families. For 35 years, that’s exactly what she has been doing."

Even worse than the quote is who said it. Maya Angelou. Seriously. I am losing all kinds of respect for so many people who I once thought had a brain in their head. "...a passionate proctector of families." REALLY? Hmm...let me see. Hey little girls out there. It's okay to grow up and get married and allow your husband to get his dick sucked by some other woman and have sex with her too because that's the way men should treat women. Now go and elect me as leader of the free world because I have family values. Can't you tell?

Give me an effing break. Hillary is worthless. Always has been and always will be. I hate Bill Clinton too. Always have and always will. I would rather vote for Mickey Mouse than to vote for her.

A Grammar Smackdown

Todays grammar lesson is about the use of i.e and e.g: When you mean "for example," use e.g. It is an abbreviation for the Latin phrase exempli gratia. When you mean "that is," use "i.e." It is an abbreviation for the Latin phrase id est. Either can be used to clarify a preceding statement, the first by example, the second by restating the idea more clearly or expanding upon it. Because these uses are so similar, the two abbreviations are easily confused. If you just stick with good old English "for example" and "that is" you won't give anyone a chance to sneer at you. If you insist on using the abbreviation, perhaps "example given" will remind you to use "e.g.," while "in effect" suggests "I.E."

For those poker players like me: Each of the suits on a deck of cards represents the four major pillars of the economy in the middle ages: heart represented the Church, spades represented the military, clubs represented agriculture, and diamonds represented the merchant class.

Because I LOVE lobster: 1 in 5,000 north Atlantic lobsters are born bright blue.

For you musicians (such as myself): American car horns beep in the tone of F.

I found the old woman in the shoe: The largest number of children born to one woman is recorded at 69. From 1725-1765, a Russian peasant woman gave birth to 16 sets of twins, 7 sets of triplets, and 4 sets of quadruplets.

Because I am from Florida and I love to bash peoples ideas of hearing the ocean in their shells: The roar that we hear when we place a seashell next to our ear is not the ocean, but rather the sound of blood surging through the veins in the ear. Any cup-shaped object placed over the ear produces the same effect.

Just because I think this is funny: Dueling is legal in Paraguay as long as both parties are registered blood donors.

For all of you Atheists, no more Goodbye for you: "Goodbye" came from "God bye" which came from "God be with you."

So,they do know how to play nice...: No President of the United States was an only child.

Poor things: A dragonfly has a lifespan of 24 hours. (I think it's because they fly at high speeds): The dragonfly is the fastest flying insect at 55-60mph.

And yet there are still so many animals: More than 100 million people hold hunting licences.

YAY he has his own day: Today is designated Winnie the Pooh Day.

For all of you pot smokers and movie watchers: All of the clocks in the movie "Pulp Fiction" are stuck on 4:20.

A little Sesame Street knowledge: The characters "Bert" and "Ernie" on Sesame Street were named after "Bert the cop" and "Ernie the taxi driver" in Frank Capra's "It's a Wonderful Life.

Someone do this for me please: If you keep a goldfish in the dark room, it will eventually turn white.

NO WAY: More than 50% of the people in the world have never made or received a telephone call.

WOOHOO!!!! It is estimated that at any one time, 0.7% of the world's population are drunk.

Your music lesson for the day: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star and the alphabet song have the same tune. ***I know you just sang them***
