Lest we forget the importance of October 24 and the impact it made on all of our lives....

October 24, 1946 - First Photo of Earth taken from Space - Taken from an altitude of 65 miles above Earth from a motion picture camera mounted on George Jetson's aerocar with a transparent bubble top.

October 24, 1939 - The first nylon stockings go on sale in Wilmington, Delaware. Stronger and cheaper than ski masks, they were an instant hit with burglars and thieves that robbed convenience stores.

October 24, 1933 - The notorious criminal John Dillinger robs a bank in Indiana. John Dillinger saw a farmer at a teller with cash. Dillinger asked if the cash was his or the bank's money. The farmer replied it was his life savings. Dillinger replied, "Keep it. We only want the Bank's money." John Dillinger goes on to star in Hollywood's first "Robin Hood" movie

Born October 24, 1838 - Annie Edson Taylor, on her 63rd birthday was first person to go over Niagara Falls in a barrel and survive (1901). Annie Taylor's barrel was the first whisky barrel fitted with front seat airbags, adaptive headlights and head restraints as per the National Barrel Safety Administration (NBSA). Your tax dollars at work...

October 24, 1861 - The third U.S. Transcontinental Telegraph message is sent, from San Francisco to Washington D.C. The first two telegraph messages resulted in a busy signal. October 25, 1861, Samuel Morse's teen aged daughter is put on restriction for two weeks... no TV, no cell phone and no TELEGRAPH!

Born October 24, 1788 Sarah Josepha Hale - After eating lamb chops at the Slaughtered Lamb Pub, Sarah Josepha Hale wrote "Mary Had a Little Lamb" Sarah Josepha Hale went on to developed a Traditional Mint Sauce to complement baked lamb

Born October 24, 1632 Anton van Leeuwenhoek - Dutch biologist, Father of Microscopy. Using a single lens microscope he became the first person to see "animalcules" the first known description of bacteria. I only mention Anton van Leeuwenhoek because I like the name "animalcules". You can expect me to use "animalcules" in future comments

Died October 24, 1985 László Biró - Hungarian-Argentine inventor. He patented the first successful ballpoint pen (U.S. Patent 2390636A) making the use of goose and swan "quill" pens obsolete. Early the following year, the Waterfowl Of America Association named László Biró as their "Man of the Year" for preventing 1000's of geese and swans from going bald

Died October 24, 1601 Tycho Brahe - Danish nobleman, astronomer. Known for accurate and comprehensive astronomical and planetary observations and blah, blah, blah. The only interesting thing in Tycho Brahe's life was that in 1566, Brahe lost part of his nose in a sword duel and wore a metal prosthetic nose the rest of his life. Tycho Brahe is credited for starting the fashion trend of wearing a zucchini squash in the middle of your face. The trend of wearing a zucchini squash in the middle of your face was quickly replaced by teenagers wearing raggedy jeans, pants pulled down below their butts and brightly colored hair worn in 8" spikes... oh how I long for the good old days...

May October 24 rest in peace....

Looks like she's getting bad news - her date is cancelling on her and taking her best friend to dinner instead ! At least she can swear in morse ! ꖘㄙꖘ

mackabroin

I also say thanks for entertaining us john......I admire wit in people most
I had a friend once who can do what you do....it was fun to listen

Juba1010

Do ra me fa so la ti do. I’m glad your not the invisible man John. You rock my world. :-)

msbonne

I like to think we can be instrumental in providing a good start to the day.

rswestley

Thanks Max and ms... nothing like a fresh brewed cup of tomfoolery to start the day! And I am not a blow hard… I reedy mean what I say. Your brew is a lot tastier than that decapitated stuff I've been drinking (and a lot less messy I might ad...)

I can always use the smiles... my smile is getting a bit tarnished with age...

msbonne

That's true Max, then they might be singing a different tune.

jals

I thought I was getting up early, but it appears I'm late to the party again.
So much fun going on.

John, I think I can help with your dyslexia Just read everything backwards. It might not be 100%, but you'll be better off than you are now. Thanks for entertaining us. ;-)

Max_Tooney

They could drum up more business by lowering their prices.

msbonne

I once saw her having breakfast at Timpanys. She looked a bit reedy then.

Max_Tooney

She was doomed to failure at an early age. She never learned to reed. Obo-e, was that a mistake.

msbonne

Well, she used to trumpet all of her fishing accomplishments all over town. Bad enough with all the sax and violins she was involved in.

Max_Tooney

True, but she was tomboyish. She has a really BAD bass boat!

msbonne

Tubad. I think she should have had a daintier sounding name.

Max_Tooney

According to the 'phone' book, her name was Sousa.

msbonne

What was his wifes name? I think it was sewer something.

msbonne

That was a shame. Didn't he also get tapped for some kind of award? It was after that that things went down the drain for him.

Max_Tooney

He was. And despite their best efforts to cover it up, the story leaked to the press.

msbonne

I always thought he was a bit of a drip.

Max_Tooney

Yes, he was also the first to come up with 'hose theory' in astrophysics.

msbonne

THE FIRE HYDRANT? The one in Copenhagen? I had often suspected that to be true, but to have it confirmed now...…...

Max_Tooney

Yes, Tycho Brahe was one of the first great Danes to be housebroken. He also first theorized that a fire hydrant was the center of the universe. True story.

dustydog

Oh, my goodness! I totally love your postings! Please add me to your list .

Thanks sillychick! I should have known someone named "sillychick" would appreciate my history lessons. The funniest part of version of history is that all of the events listed actually happened. Really! They are all based on actual events... maybe I just look at things a bit differently than most "normal" people. Thanks silly chick!

Juba, I had never heard of Post Mortem until you mentioned his name. I'm not brave enough to listen to his music, but the tattoos on his face sounds like fun. Post Mortem has inspired me to put a life size tattoo of a pterodactyl on my face... I know my face is too small right now, but it gives me a good excuse to eat like a pig for the next several years. Thanks Juba!

Max, ms and Clive... I always find your comments to be most amusing. Thanks for the smiles! Max, you made me wonder... I read that Tycho Brahe, the great Dane, was ahead of time... do you suppose he was house broken?

Judy, as the resident humanitarian, I want to thank you for putting Ben right side up. You are most kind... do you think you can help me with my aixelsyD?

Janie_Janie, a special thanks for the ".... .- .... .- .... .- " - it means a lot to me :-)

robin, BB and Bev, it's always nice when you stop in for a visit. If you give me an advance warning next time I will fix lunch... how does a grilled fillet of Spam on a lima bean bun sound?

puzzleman, I agree. I get enough of the real world in the real world. I can't afford to go to Disneyland so I go to Jigidi...the next best thing to an ingrown toenail

tea... thanks for stopping in and glad you enjoyed your trip to fantasyland

and Jim, my apologies. I didn't know I was contagious. The next time I will wear my plastic bubble and use a longer lasting antiperspirant. I hope your invisibilitiness wears off soon... you have been missed

Thanks to everyone for joining me during recess. The next time I will bring a soccer ball and we can have some REAL fun :-)

I didn't realise that mpp was MIA on my list! I will remedy that asap.

Oh my gosh... I just realized the list of names I stole from Bonnie did not include mpp! What was I thinking? I am ashamed of my negligence. Well, this may be my last comment for awhile. I suspect when mpp realizes she was left out she will demote me to night watchman at the Fillmore West (closed 40+ years ago). But it won’t be all bad, I will be partying with the ghosts of Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Jerry Garcia, Marty Balin, Paul Kantner and the rest of the rock stars that appeared regularly at the Fillmore...

“When logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead
And the white knight is talking backwards
And all Jigidians have lost their heads
Remember, put some Spam on bread...
And feed your head, feed your head”

yup, Grace was pretty slick...
@morepiecesplz

teamac

LOL...Loved it ☺

junglejim

Hi TIM. It looks like I've turned invisible too!

Dear sweet John....:))….You are always there for us. :))

mackabroin

lol john.....I love it.........I think I will come with you.....I LOVE roasting marshmallows........especially outside.....see you there....lol

rswestley

This is why I don’t post a lot of puzzles here in fantasyland. With performing brain surgeries, painting my yacht and spending hours on the phone advising Trump, I have ltttle time to respond. I’m not neglecting you, I’m just waiting for the nurse to bring me my meds so I can write something that is coherent. As soon as the meds set in, I will try to address (code for “make fun of”) all of your comments. Enjoy the rest of your day.... I need to go to California to put out a forest fire (and roast some marshmallows)

mackabroin

good one john.....hats off to dillinger!!!lol

I too enjoyed this. I wish more of us would try to have a little fun on Jigidi. This made my day!

nanab

Fascinating! Thanks for sharing and thanks for the laughs.

jals

Janie_Janie is awesome!

jals

@CJ45
I was joking about being trans. I am a full-fledged woman with most of her parts intact yet. I was simply trying to help Ben straighten up. He was tipped sideways so I put him upright but he hasn't been back to see it so I have been looking like a man all day.
And no, I don't want to know anymore about your ac/dc friend. lol

PutterDutt

Thanks for the tag. John. And I posted 1 for you!

Max_Tooney

Alrighty, it's a Janie_Janie sighting!

Janie_Janie

.... .- .... .- .... .-

CJ45

@jals
Have you have not joined the trans group?
I hope not.
My friend of many years was AC/DC but always stayed male till he died.
Many stories about him and his friendship and also when he met my wife he was twice her size. LOL!!!
Want to here more about use all just ask.

jals

Great puzzle, John. I'm just never sure which things you say, I can believe...

pasta

Fun, John. :)

Max_Tooney

Enjoyed the tribute to Tyco Brahe (pronouced: TEE ko Brah)

He was a great Dane.

CJ45

John that was so interesting. LOL!!
I had to learn morse at school why I didn't know I only remember SOS but I have a mobile phone. What yes I am one of the idiots that had one in a box before the "Bricks" game out.
Just say NO. that always irritated me, what was wrong with nice girls when I was growing up. ????
Just being naughty.
@sillychick
You are so young to be a Cougar, Thee Hee!!!

msbonne

I think it was revenge for them naming him Post.

George Jetson was (will be?) truly a pioneer in the art of photography.

The nylon industry did a real number on the ski apparel industry. Right up until people realized it was harder to ski whilst wearing nylons over their face.

Juba1010

I just read that Post Malone got his face tattoos to irritate his mom. Wonder how he’s gonna feel about them when he grows up.

sillychick

I really, really liked this collection of Historical Trivia Tidbits that you shared w/us. Very interesting, esp your blah, blah, blah part & your want to use the word animalcules all the time so you choose, when you choose. mary ha a Little Lamb was funny. So thank-you for taking the time for us. b/c of you I am smarter today. Butt I do know why 'some' people wear their britches very low (butt crack showing), I tried it, minus the butt crack showing; Pants are VERY comfortable to wear like that, really it's true, @ least for me it works (I just do it around the house not in public, I am 61 years old after all & it would not look 'cool' in public).

Max_Tooney

Well, be grateful that Morse didn't invent texting.
