Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
Blog Guy, it happened again today! The time changed overnight and I forgot to change my clocks, so I missed an important meeting. What do other people do to prevent this?
Most people I know just wear two wristwatches at all times, set one hour apart. So whether it’s Daylight Savings Time or not, one of them will still be correct.
Wait a minute. That sounds moronic. If you always wear two watches, then how do you ever know which one is right?
Most people I know stick colorful Post-It notes on the one that’s right, so they’ll know where to look.
Every so often an idea comes along that is so awful it deserves a place in the Bad Idea Hall of Fame. Like there was the toilet timer that made sure workers don’t spend too much time in the bathroom, and of course there was that hotel bed-warming service.
But now, along comes an idea that makes those others seem positively brilliant.
We have photos showing “hands free driving” in a car that is controlled by the driver’s brain. I’m not making this up.
Well, it so happens that right now I am very busy designing a successor to the incredible Basler BT-67 airplane.
Okay, the headline on this story, “Ancient Brits ate dead and made skulls into cups,” pretty much says it all. I can’t improve on that.
Perhaps surprisingly, I’m going to skip right over the part about eating the dead. It would just be too easy to compare what British folks ate back then with what they eat now.
