And We're Rollin'

Pies have been eaten over the radio, Fire Inspectors through here and done, door-to-door evangelists sent away, and Johnnie Walker Red is here- and it's not even noon! Woohoo for productive days!
OK- let's look around at what's up in the world.

I love this idea

The homeless as unwitting guinea pigs?

No, no, no. Today is 3/14, so no pie today, only pi.

Some great head-scratcher stories today. Thanks.

Susan- And a perfect day for science too, as it's Einstein's Birthday.

Welcome. There's so much interesting stuff going on!

I love that emails from the dead story. When I die I want to enter my cpu and start blogging away...scare the hedoublehockeysticks out of people.
As to the Tide theft...well, at least we know they are clean criminals.

The Elephant's Child said...

Unlike mybabyjohn/Delores I think the Tide theft is simply money laundering on a grand scale.

Not certain about the electronic voices from the dead. I would however like to haunt a few people so ...

Thanks. Lots to think about here.

Lawless- I was thinking, could I write a post and just keep it far-dated -out til after I die, then it suddenly appears? It'd be a great practical joke!

EC- Money laundering! Ha! It's a bizarro world when laundry detergent becomes currency.

And yeah, I'm planning on haunting, too.
