10-4 Good Buddy!

Alicia Silverstone turns 40 today!

I remember when I saw this, I didn't know her name or age, but I could tell. I thought "My god, she's only 16!"





October 4 in history (via Wikipedia

1582  Pope Gregory XIII implements the Gregorian calendar. In Italy, Poland, Portugal, and Spain, October 4 of this year is followed directly byOctober 15.

Protestants ignored the change at first, but eventually came around. So even they concede Catholics aren't wrong about everything.

2006  Wikileaks is launched by Julian Assange.

Thank you Julian! Wikileaks is supposedly releasing damagin emails from or about Mrs. Clinton today. I'm not holding my breath for a smoking gun.

Birthday quotes I

"In avoiding the appearance of evil, I am not sure but I have sometimes unnecessarily deprived myself and others of innocent enjoyments."

"Personally I do not resort to force — not even the force of law — to advance moral reforms. I prefer education, argument, persuasion, and above all the influence of example — of fashion. Until these resources are exhausted I would not think of force." 

- Rutherford B. Hayes (October 4, 1822 – January 17, 1893)

Birthday quotes II

"Some day, somewhere … a guy is going to come to you and show you a nice brand-new deck of cards on which the seal is never broken, and this guy is going to offer to bet you that the jack of spades will jump out of this deck and squirt cider in your ear. But, son … do not bet him, for as sure as you do you are going to get an ear full of cider."

- Damon Runyon (October 4, 1880[ – December 10, 1946)

Birthday quotes III

"People don't necessarily want or need to be done unto as you would have them do unto you. They want to be done unto as they want to be done unto."

Roy Blount, Jr.  (born October 41941)
