Rain, I'm thinking you've gone beyond being a poopityhead and heading in the direction of rationality, so sad.

Toilet paper.


Holy crap! You're older than I thought....

Quote:
Rolled and perforated toilet paper as we're familiar with today was invented around 1880. Various sources attribute it to the Albany Perforated Wrapping (A.P.W.) Paper Company in 1877, and to the Scott Paper company in 1879 or 1890. On a side note, the Scott Company was too embarrassed to put their name on their product, as the concept of toilet paper was a sensitive subject at the time, so they customized it for their customers... hence the Waldorf Hotel became a big name in toilet paper.

@DrewDad,
i have learned quite a few simple things throughout my life. most of them are contradictary (sp? imd runk off cheap wine forgive me) . which is no suprise for me.

occoms razor, the simple solution is the best one.

ruthlessness leads to success. but its crowded at the bottom and lonely at the top.

you get what you pay for ( my personal favorite)

speak softly, but carry a big stick.

the thing i live my life by, sure im quiet, until you push me, i dont shove back i show up at your house with molotov cocktails biatch.

Here's one that WOULD change my life if anyone besides ME followed it ...

If you are the first to put a dirty dish in the dishwasher, fill the soap dispenser. If the dish you just put in had to be jiggled and rearranged to make room for it... turn the dial to start the wash cycle!

(Gawd, you'd think I was asking for a miracle or something!)

@squinney,
Wait, do you fill the soap dispenser after you wiggle a plate, or before?

why doesn't the person who has to wiggle the plate fill the dispenser, then start the dishwasher, that makes more sense. Then you've only got one person involved instead of 2.

Do I move my coat down to the lower peg before getting my haircut and after writing my letter home, or do I wait until after chapel to invite friends for the weekend?

Here's one I learned from Richard Feynman: You are not responsible for meeting other people's expectations about you. If you don't meet them, that's not your problem, it's theirs: after all, they're the ones whose expectations were mistaken.

When I see an online recipe I like, I make a screenshot of the recipe + picture
(got to see it too) and put it in my online recipe folder that is divided into
sub-folders - appetizer, main courses and dessert.
