RIDICULOUS

Anything you find that is ridiculous then feel free to tell.

Ridiculous as in latin for laughable.

It is RIDICULOUS that here in England, all we hear about in the media is the need to conserve energy, gas is running out, oil is running out and electricity prices are to rise enormously. Yet the government seems never to have heard of solar power and how it could be used domestically. I think we should be encouraged to use far more solar energy in a domestic situation and to have financial assistance where needed for the installation. End of whinge!

p.s. well done David for giving the opportunity to sound off about things, tempus fugis and all that!

We had 60 MPH winds today and there are tree limbs down everywhere in the park where I work. It looks like a war zone. As I was helping the guys pick them up, my boss called me and told me to go clean goose poop instead - in the pouring rain!
Good thing I went to college.

Ridiculous that people don't understand how dangerous it is to do all the little actions involved in messing with a cellphone while driving fast. We saw an 18-year-old almost die and almost cause our family untold misery Sunday from her messing with a cellphone and not seeing us till the last second before that point of no return. The hand of God could only have saved her. All involved believe we saw a miracle.

I learned how to spell "ridiculous" in second grade. I remember because I misspelled it at the time. I wouldn't call it ridiculous but perhaps annoying that some things not particularly valuable stick in your memory while other things you'd like to remember get irretrievably lost. For example, I'd really like to remember all of the names of the collie puppies our family dog Nutmeg had when I was about eight. However, the only ones I can remember are Rascal, Jimmy Durante (yes, he had a big snout), and Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini.

Don't you hate it when the toast breaks off in the toaster and falls into the bottom and burns? It just smells and smokes. So annoying....

Or the milk that has turned sour is left in the refrigerator. Can't it get poured down the sink? It curdles in my tea.

Flush the toilet, how do you say that in Latin?

The cellphone is $200. But it's only $50 after rebate. Here - fill out all this paperwork, be sure to save the boxes and cut off these POP bars and numbers and mail those in also. Be sure to get that in the mail by midnight or offer expires. And in 6-8 business weeks (let's see, that means - well, practically never) you'll get your rebate. Yeah. Right.

I was using the computer at the Y this morning. They have some kind of net nanny installed to keep the kids out of inappropriate sites. Mostly, I don't have a problem with that -- but this morning, it would let me read every thread except THIS one. The reason the net nanny gives? "Intimate Apparel."
Go figure!

"Flipping the Toilet Shield"

Very popular in Asia to use a large piece of tissue paper
in the shape of a toilet seat - if you wish to sit on the seat
( in the production of whatever it is you're producing )

If one "flips the toilet shield" one brings about the very
eventuality one was trying to avoid by using the Shield.

You take a chance on getting COOTIES
