Living in 2016

From the  photo email10.gif archives.


1. You accidentally enter your PIN on the microwave.

2. You haven't played solitaire with real cards in years.

3. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of three.

4. You e-mail the person who works at the desk next to you.

5. Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family is that they don't have e-mail addresses.

6. You pull up in your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if anyone is home to help you carry in the groceries...

7. Every commercial on television has a web site at the bottom of the screen.

8. Leaving the house without your cell phone, which you didn't even have the first 20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now a cause for panic, and you turn around to go and get it .

10. You get up in the morning and go online before getting your coffee.

11. You start tilting your head sideways to smile. : )

12. You're reading this and nodding and laughing.

13. Even worse, you know exactly to whom you are going to forward this message.

14. You are too busy to notice there was no #9 on this list.

15. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn't a #9 on this list .

Tin Man - America

What Wizard of Oz Character Are You?

You Are the Tin Man

You feel like you're not compassionate enough, but you've got more heart than almost anyone else in this world.

You care deeply for others, and you are extremely sensitive. You are easily moved.

You find it easy to put yourself in someone else's shoes. You're very empathetic.

If only you were as easy on yourself as you are on others. You don't give yourself enough credit! 


The Head of Bob

From the website:

The Ultimate Oracle: Over 1625038 Questions Answered

Of the many True Oracles, none are more profound than the Mystical Smoking Head of 'Bob'. Not even the Severed Head of Arnold Palmer can penetrate the veils of bulldada protecting the Norms from the Terrifying Truths and Puzzling Evidence.

Concentrate and ask a Yes or No Question

Oh By The Frop Of His Pipe, Grant Me Vision!

With the recent death of Arnold Palmer, I'm wondering if they'll change that particular gruesome reference.  Probably not, though.

I asked Bob if I will win the lottery:

Titanic Tapeworm Trivia

The longest tapeworm ever found in the human body was 102 feet long.

The Worm Didn't Turn

Cute 404 page on The Food Channel:

I was a little disappointed I wasn't able to find the recipe for Chicken Alfredo Soup right away, but I guess it's like real life; it's better to bite into an apple and find a worm than biting into one and finding half a worm.

How Rural Are You?

You Are Rural

You have a real yin for the quieter things in life, and as long as you're in nature, you never feel like you're missing out.

You are drawn toward a slower pace - one where you can hear yourself think and see tons of stars in the sky.

You have a depth that others seem to lack in these modern times. You connect deeply with people, nature, and ideas.

You don't get why people are always in such a rush. You believe that life needs to be lived mindfully in order to be appreciated. 

How Rural Are You?

I believe that's "yen" instead of "yin".  While "yen" is the currency of Japan, it also means "hunger". 

But yes, I do have a hunger to live in the country.  When I grew up miles from town, I couldn't wait to get out on my own and live in town.  It didn't take long for me to realize I wished I was back in the country.

Disqus 404

Got this "page not found" message on a movie site that uses Disqus for comments. It was an animated image behind the message and was cool looking, but i didn't recognize the movie or TV show from which the scene was taken. If I had to guess, what with the primitive/fur clothing and the winter landscape, that it was something from Game of Thrones (which I don't watch).

I was disappointed the link didn't work, but I didn't feel like crying like the guy in the graphic seems about to do.  Then again, if it IS GoT, then the poor slob is probably about to get executed. 

Anybody have a guess?

(click image for larger view) or you can view the page here.

Note:  After publishing this post, I do as I always do and checked the link to make sure it worked. (this blog doesn't have a 404 page, not that I know of)  I got a Batman animation with the same message, so it must rotate among different scenes.

I was trying to look up the profile of a guy who had been whining that his last post had been deleted by the moderator.  That post, as well as his account, seems to have been terminated...just like the guy in the scene, I bet.  Yep, winter is coming.

Difficult to Prove

Man, these "prove you're a human" things are getting harder and harder.   I had to go find my glucose meter for this one.

Instant Rimshot

From the site: If you need quick access to an ironically-placed rimshot sound to mock your friends, or a genuinely-placed rimshot to put your great joke over the top, you've come to the right place

New Moon

New Moon - the phase of the moon when it is in conjunction with the sun and invisible from earth, or shortly thereafter when it appears as a slender crescent.

There was a new moon last night (Sept 1) and  there will be another on Sept 30.

According to superstition, two new moons occurring in one month foretells bad weather.

What Nut Are You?

You Are a Hazelnut

You are very unique and distinct. You may even freak some people out.

Most people don't really know how to interact with you.

You get along best with anyone who is super sweet.

But you really do get along with almost anyone. You just need a chance to wow them. 


I didn't look up the results for other types of nuts, but I'm not fond of hazelnuts. They're OK, just not my favorite. I guess that's probably what people think of me, not esp. fond of me and not their favorite.

Their opinion doesn't drive me nuts, though.
