Thanks Fiona. Dave Barry . . ompah ompah opeedo -I looked at and asked myself, "how much time do I have left on this earth to read it all"? My answer, "not much". Anyway. I did save it. And I will read each month as it comes up. LOL Man it's LONG! Funny too. As always. ~ Ada

Mischka

And here he is... https://www.miamiherald.com/living/liv-columns-blogs/dave-barry/article238523668.html

Mischka

That reminds me, I haven't seen Dave Barry's year-end wrap-up of 2019. I always love those. Excuse me while I go google...

petslave

Just ask Dave Barry he knows. And boy he can tell ya. LOL Florida is a land all it's own. A peninsula that defies explanation because so many that reside here are not born here. [Me included]

"60 Times Florida Man Did Something So Crazy We Had To Read The Headings Twice"



https://floridaman.com/

"Florida Man. Just who is he? What is he? Is he superhuman?

With so many random acts of fuckery occurring throughout Florida on a daily basis, it seems as if his antics are motivated by entertaining and/or warning the rest of the Nation to avoid the Sunshine State at all costs.

The primary reason there's a nearly unlimited source of Florida Man stories to write about is the state's 'Proud Open Government Laws'.

Other factors that may contribute to this phenomena include:

The crazy weather
Abundance of alligators
Snowbirds
The "General Craziness" of Florida"

petslave

ah ok, got it. Florida man likes Wendy's and wants to be a cook. Likes to eat. And just because he is there becomes a thief. I guess the burger inspired him. I got it now. Thanks LOL

msbonne

Be cautious. He may just look like that.

Mischka

I believe you're right. And he's at least 150 years old.

msbonne

There is only one Florida Man, like a chameleon, he may appear differently at times.

Mischka

Here's an example of Florida Man.

https://www.jigidi.com/jigsaw-puzzle/LM3TAFYD/Florida-Man

There are many, many more.

Your reaction indicates you have met one of them.

petslave

It would take a lot to keep Florida man quiet or out of sight. And to add, I have no idea WHAT Florida man you are talking about. I only one Florida man in mind and oh gawd phewwww

msbonne

I do not know if it is ok to discuss what your wife does to you here TIM. As far as I know, self censorship is still legal, but can lead to blindness.

Florida Man must be very crafty and sly to find the loophole.

rswestley

I think I am evolving from an eight year old to a ten year old... I just wrote a political observation, but deleted it. I don't think I like getting older and the resulting "self-induced censoring". I think I like it better when my wife censors me

Mischka

It's Florida Man's natural habitat. He blends right in. But, when caught, he never declines to comment -- and often calls the charges "politically motivated" -- which makes him so newsworthy.

msbonne

Hmmmm.

Makes me wonder why Florida Man spends so much time there.

petslave

@msbonne FLA [Florida] is immune from NOTHING! We get it all. From everywhere. A favorite destination for everything. Bad weather, bad people [won't mention his name], pirates, cattle rustlers, flamenco dancers, aspiring actors, and retired people, a LOT of retired people ... the worst part is not much relief from heat and humidity year round.

msbonne

I thought FLA was immune.

'Nite!!!!

Mischka

Thanks -- all I hear is that it's bad. I'm mostly reclusive and South Miamians seem to be very practical. We all wear masks, etc. I think the danger is highest for retirement homes and nursing homes.

Thanks for asking! Nice to meet you (again). A lot of Jigidists live all over Florida, or have done so, so there's a high level of anticipation for what horrors may happen next. I'm not joking, honest; just people dealing in their own ways.

I've been dipping into my own (wine) glass and must head to bed. TTYL! Wake up healthy, all!

Fiona, how's the covid19 count doing down where you live? I'm up north of Tampa. You have it sooo bad in Miami-Dade! Has it started to lower yet? My widowed friend lives in Broward and it's pretty awful there as well.

Lol, Fiona...those critters do move fast!!! Same with the floaters. Have had those in my eyes for years, too. Annoying, aren't they? Btw, stop putting all those food puzzles out here.....I'm putting on weight just looking at them!!! Yummm...

Mischka

I've heard the same good medical reports, @girlinaglass92 -- though I wonder whether any eye surgeons are keeping office hours these days. I sure would like to get my eyes fixed. My 'strong' eye has a bunch of floaters. Or maybe they are just the baby bats that I adopted, they move so quickly.

Ada, I love time travel stories and there are some really great ones out there. The movie "Predestination" (2014), with Ethan Hawke and a stunningly great Australian actress, Sarah Snook, is based on the classic Heinlein story "All You Zombies--" (it has nothing to do with zombies). It's the perfect time-paradox/time-loop story and Snook is a revelation. It quickly became a cult hit in the genre.

But I'm also a sucker for "The Butterfly Effect," which has plot holes AND Ashton Kutcher. And for "12 Monkeys" and for "Primer" and for "Blast From the Past" with Brendan Fraser and for "12:01" and for ...

Well, google the phrase "List of films featuring time loops." The Wiki page? I wrote almost all of it. :)

Ms_Maddy

Sad for him :(

petslave.....get to an ophthomologist and have your cataracts checked out!!! It may be time for surgery on them. Don't worry.....it's now the most common eye procedure and the results are usually fantastic. You can get rid of your prescription glasses and they usually make your eyesight 20/20. Just pick a Board Certified eye surgeon who has lots of experience doing these procedures. I knew mine had to be done when, driving down a major road in our area, I had to ask my grandson to read the huge green overhead street signs!!! You might develop a secondary cataract later on, but that can be taken care of in the doctor's office by laser. Usually, they will adjust your eyes for distance and you will need over the counter magnification reading glasses - which can be bought in any supermarket or drugstore. Doctor will probably do your dominant eye first and then the other one between 2-4 weeks later. Insurance covers the procedures. Like you, I'm a serious crafter - design and make stained glass, do floral arranging, painting on objects, sewing, interior decorating, etc. And reading has also been my life's passion. So losing my eyesight was terrifying to me. Cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration and deafness also run in my family! Lucky, right?

petslave

@msbonne If it's anything about time travel, or similar type I can get pulled in and will go crazy trying to figure it all out. I love time travel. Not for me though. I'll stay here, for now, and maybe a little bit longer if all goes well. :-/

Mischka

Yes, I know Finney's fiction; he is nonpareil for a certain brand of nostalgia. (Down with Progress!) Good for you. Most people know him only for "The Body Snatchers."

Did you ever read any Alfred Bester? Wrote two of the greatest SF novels in the 50s, then totally lost his skills when he returned in the 70s. He left his estate to his bartender.

msbonne

That would be the one.

Another story that has always fascinated me is Time And Again by Jack Finney (1970).

there was a follow up book From Time To Time, but it was not nearly as good as the first.

petslave

warning, warning, alert: Youtube is dangerous, highly addictive. I know, I've been there. Ha. hard to pull away. I try to avoid it but get pulled in every once in awhile just to see ONE video and ended up watching close to 50 or more and time is gone! sad sad sad.... I comedy books. Dave Barry the best. I read Al Franken, I love Steve Colbert!
I have many books that are non-fiction since I like to sometimes look something up after hours..... when the world is sleeping. Gotta go timer beeped, pizza is ready. tata

Mischka

I know a lot about the Titanic, as it happens. Your book is "The Wreck of the Titan." It's said that W. T. Stead also wrote a story predicting it, and he claimed to be a psychic; but he wasn't a very good one; he was one of the ones who drowned.

Most of my collection is fiction, but I have a lot of history, science, and art, plus comedy by guys like Dave Barry, Al Franken, and Steven Colbert.

Ada, I dream about the library nearly every night, usually in connection with some deadline I've forgotten to meet. It sounds as though you keep busy! I'll sit down to Google something, and five hours later my back is creaking from leaping from one YouTube to another. I've needed to call my Internet/cable provider for a week and keep forgetting to do it.

msbonne

I have many, many books. Generally, unless they are by an author that I reread, or a story that is truly fantastic, I donate them. Some that I keep, have been read many times. Some are just fascinating. I have a book written in 1910 (I believe, but it may have been 1911). About the largest ship in the world hitting an iceberg on its maiden voyage. If I recall correctly, the ships name was the Titan. Found so many parallels between the story and the Titanic, it became a very odd experience reading it.
Have some other old books as well, but the vast majority are from late 1950s to current.

petslave

Thanks Fiona.... You are right to feel that way and feel as I do. I wouldn't mind if deafness hit me. But if I lost my eyesight I would have nothing left. I read, do crafts, crochet, knit - on and on - the things that I do and need to do require my eyesight. It's an awful fear. I am dreading a day that may come when my eye may need surgery to fix/remove the blasted thing. I am scared to death my eye would be ruined or destroyed and will be blind in that one eye.
I cope because I am still able to find other outlets to keep my mind off things that could or would have destroyed me years ago. So far I am alive and cope because I am stubborn as hell! I look for and find alternatives, or replacements for some things that I can't do anymore. I miss going to library. Ha. Don't know why I would go if I could right now, I have books here, I have the internet and I can adjust the viewing size on my monitor if the text is too small etc etc... life goes on, with and without crap that goes with it. I do miss the library, the feel of it, walking the shelves and just looking at everything. The quiet and peacefulness of the place. Well you certainly know about that. :D
I am reading a book currently actually, but it's sitting in another room and I only give it a chapter or two when I can sit and relax for a little bit of time. With very very good lighting and a huge magnifying glass if my eyes get tired.

Mischka

My heartfelt condolences. I have a real terror of losing my eyesight. (Without a sense of smell as well, I don't know how I'd eat.) You seem to cope quite cheerfully.

petslave

I donated to my library many many books. Just ran out of space and read them all. I still have a very nice supply and collection in different genres. Love to read. Wanted to work at a library once when I was little, I would go with my mom and bring home a huge stack of books. LOL My elementary school teacher when I was 10 years old with a nice stack of Nancy Drew books to read in car ride from CT to FL I was so happy, read during daylight and again late with flashlight. I have a big spreadsheet listing all my books and where they are now, read and un-read. I love spreadsheets. A hold over from my 'desk' job I guess. LOL I haven't been reading as much as I use to since bad vision and eyes get tired fast. I can't find all the books I want to read in large-print. I have beginnings of a cataract in left eye so it gets hard sometimes.

Mischka

Very clever, thanks for finding this! :-D

My books still outnumber my DVDs, but when I moved into this smaller house, I donated about half to the library and threw out a bunch more. My mom was almost in tears. "How can a librarian throw away books?" "It's because I was trained as a librarian, Mom."

petslave

msbonne - another organizer! wow! If you also read, what about your bookshelves? inquiring minds like mine always curious. LOL

msbonne

I am sorry to have caused you any harm TIM. I can send a plow over if that would help.

I have about 2,500 dvds (organized), and approx. another 5-6,000 on digital. (maybe more). Also organized by genre, title.

petslave

I just have piles of hair scattered around me and on the floor. I really need a hair cut! The longer hairs get too tangled in the vacuum something awful. Only scratching is on my darn eczema - forget I just wrote that.... ewwww.

rswestley

Thank you Ada for sparing me the embarrassment of asking WTF. I made a large pile of dandruff while I was scratching my head and attempting to decipher this puzzle. Hoff? Are you fluent in Enigma? Or do you have an Enigma machine? Hats off to Ben, Redina, Marion and BB for being able to translate this puzzle without the aid of a Ouija board. You all must be graduates of the Picasso School of Abstract Reality... the same school that expelled me for using a slide rule. And I would be remiss not to thank Hoff. Thanks to the all knowing sloth, I now have a pile of "snow" to sprinkle on this year's Christmas tree.

Hoff... I can live with skin cells dying and falling from my scalp, but I cannot permit you to kill off my remaining brain cells. If I continue to kill off my brain cells, I may be forced to run for congress

petslave

Musical's and comedies are the best for joyful entertainment. especially the really OLD ones. Fred Astaire, perfect for a bad day. Singing in the Rain perfect.
Grease fun. When I need excitement and to ease boredom I reach for horror.
Feeling gloomy, it's the musicals and comedies. I think we have about 4,000 cd's in our home. Seriously. All cataloged on a spreadsheet numbered and shelved or boxed alphabetically. Alien is still my first and most favorite SF and horror flick.

msbonne

I am a cinema buff. All genres.

petslave

Ah OK. I will take you at your word, you appear to be proficient Star Wars expert. Nice to know. I have all those movies in my house that I can pick up and watch anytime. But ah, don't really care to. My hubby is the movie fanatic and sci-fi SF guy. I prefer "terminator movies" LOL and how about "Predator" movies? love that stuff.

msbonne

Stormtroopers were unable to hit anything in ANY of them (they were prominently featured in the first 3).

petslave

Sort of like the people MISS him. ha. OK get it. But storm troopers ? I never saw any of newer star wars movies. OK OK OK sad but true. I do recall maybe watching the very first star wars. The only one that looked good and was a bit fun. Lost interest in them.

msbonne

If you think of the pandemic, that is easy.
Look at the target, no hits inside.

Think of the Star Wars movies. the Stormtroopers NEVER hit anything. They always seem to miss, not matter how many times, or how many of them there are.

petslave

I don't get it. Target ??? LOL I love his personal protection equipment though. Sorry msbonne, I am suffering this morning with one of my really bad headaches. Other body aches also seem to be hitting me today. Hard to concentrate. I know I am missing something in that photo but can't quite figure it out right now.

msbonne

Always a pleasure

redina1

That is very deep. One way it's sad, the other way, it's a good thing! Thanks for the morning brain exercise. :)

msbonne

Yup, nothing offensive here.

msbonne

I was not sure if I could even post this unfiltered, as I thought somebody would misinterpret and find it offensive in some way. This whole being PC thing is not easy.

bblessing

after a long thoughtful pause i agree.

msbonne

If you think on this a little more bb, you WILL see the creativity involved here.

bblessing

only my friends.
