  1. What are Brits talking about when they use the word PLY? Alistair MacLean book, so of course they're speaking English, not American. He covers the windows with ply, so that no one can look in and see what he is doing. I kind of had the impression that ply was tape. But covering the windows with tape would take a hell of a lot of tape, so that's most likely not it.
  2. What the heck are/were wingbacks? I know that term as applied to football players and to chairs. I know slingbacks, which are women's high heels. And I know Red Wing, who make boots. But never heard of wingback shoes.
  3. Mr. Owl, how many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Pop?
  4. I like that story. But I think I like the one about Mr. Rogers being an ex Marine Corps sniper better. He always wore the sweaters to cover up the tattoos that covered both of his arms. https://www.liveabout.com/was-mr-rogers-a-navy-seal-or-marine-sniper-3299333 I read an interview with him many years back. He said that the sweaters and the tennis shoes came from his first job in radio. The station had lousy heating - it was cold in the winter. So he started wearing sweaters. He played the piano on that first show, but the piano was on the other side of the stage from the microphone, and when he ran back and forth from the mic to the piano you could hear his leather shoes going klop klop klop on the stage. So he started wearing tennis shoes so you couldn't hear him.
  5. I just closed my browser and opened another one. UsingFirefox, the video is here in the Saloon (ACS). I did not have to follow a link.
  6. On my phone that first post has a link to Twitter. Clicking on that link took me to a little10-15 second video.
  7. I never have. Is it Tweedledee and Tweedledum, or Tweedledum and Tweedledee? Are they always listed in the same order? It's Jack and Jill, not Jill and Jack. Donny and Marie, not Marie and Donny. The Lone Ranger and Tonto, not Tonto and The Lone Ranger (well, except for that Johnny Depp one). I just came across a reference to Tweedledum and Tweedledee, and I thought it went the other way.
  8. Seems like they left a lot out. A better title would be "Making crucibles by hand".
  9. That's the thing I noticed in the blurb. They kept saying that it looked like "2 people about to kiss". Were they afraid to say it it looked like two men? Cause that's sure hell what it looked like to me. Advertisers, it seems to me, are relying really hard on normal people being "tolerant" of what they consider abnormal or perverted. "Oh God, that is disgusting as hell, but I can't say what I think about it, because everyone will tell me I'm intolerant." I believe that one of these days normal people will get tired of being worried about how the abnormal and the perverted think about them. Then these types of commercials will bite the advertisers in the ass.
  10. A french toast grilled cheese sandwich. Would it taste better or worse with pancake syrup on it?
  11. You have not heard that bogus story? https://www.liveabout.com/captain-kangaroo-and-lee-marvin-war-buddies-4056565
  12. You can't go by the dictionary anymore. >'When I use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, β€˜it means just what I choose it to mean β€” neither more nor less.'< People have decided that explicit means the same as adult. Adult used to mean no longer a child. Now it means dirty, obscene, pornographic. "Adult movie". "Adult literature".
  13. I was listening to Benny Goodman play Sing Sing Sing. In the comments it explained that while Goodman played it as an instrumental, Louis Prima wrote it with lyrics. I went looking for the lyrics. I found this on metrolyrics. Advisory - the following lyrics contain explicit language: Sing, sing, sing, sing Everybody start to sing La dee da, ho, ho, ho Now you're singing with a swing Sing, sing, sing, sing Everybody start to sing La dee da, ho, ho, ho Now you're singing with a swing And when the music goes around Everybody's goes to town But here's something you should know Ho ho baby ho ho ho Sing, sing, sing, sing Everybody start to sing La dee da, ho, ho, ho Now you're singing with a swing And when the music goes around Everybody's goes to town But here's something you should know Ho ho baby ho ho ho The best that I can figure out, the EXPLICIT LYRICS is HO HO HO. You know - like Santa Claus - ho ho ho.
  14. I read that and I thought, "I ain't sure about Julie Christie, but I know damn well Lee Marvin was not in Sound of Music". Best actor for that performance. Martin Balsam got best supporting actor that year, but I think the horse should have got it.
