The Worst Senior Prom Ever

My turn again...

Question #5: What was the worst date you ever had?

SunFyre: My worst date I ever had, and I hope she gets to read this, was named Dawn. She was my date to my senior prom.

I had a friend who told me that Dawn, an incredibly pretty blonde who worked at the movie theater, was wondering if I had a prom date.

I'm a guy in a wheelchair who had dated maybe six times in my life prior to that. None of my dates had ever been in Dawn's league. I knew Dawn just a little. She had graduated the year before me, and now was working at the mall. I didn't even know her in high school.

Obviously, I asked her and she said "yes" on the spot. I was so excited. It was like one of those teen movies where the geek gets the pretty girl and remains popular for the rest of his high school career. My life was about to get wonderful.

I found out within 15 minutes at the dance that the only reason she wanted to go is because she knew her ex-boyfriend would be at the prom with his new girlfriend. Let's just say there was excessive yelling, and later excessive drinking in the bathroom. I never got to dance with her, and she spent most of the night in the ladies toilet.

I dropped her off early and went to after-prom by myself.

The good news is that I got my first girlfriend that night. Apparently Tammy had a crush on me, which she decided to share when she found out that I only dated Dawn because I was a shallow idiot. For some reason, women seem to be attracted to shallow idiots!

Marvels of the Science: Rocks and Things

My kids have a science test today. We've been studying rocks and minerals, erosion and weathering, and other science-y geology stuff all week.

All that work, and we just should have done in Internet search. After all, everything on the Internet is factual when it comes to science.

Here's a perfect example, a quick documentary that teaches us everything we know about rocks and 2 minutes and 43 seconds.

Stretch your brains!

More Realistic Anniversary Gift Traditions

New Anniversary Gifts Destined to become Traditional My wife and I have been married for 20 years today. Over the past 20 years I made efforts each year to observe the traditional anniversary gifts. Some of them are certainly more difficult than others, and many of them are hard to find gift worthy in the modern age.
Therefore, I offer you a modern take on anniversary gifts. How many of these will become traditional?
First Anniversary – The Ramen Noodle anniversary. Let’s face it, you blew $30,000 on the wedding, and your student loan debt hasn’t gone anywhere. Share a Cup O’ Noodles. Eat with chopsticks on the floor because you can’t yet afford a couch.
Second Anniversary – The Puppy Anniversary. She’s been looking at you with those eyes that say she wants to start a family, but you just bought a new couch. Get her a puppy instead.
Third Anniversary – The Kinky Lingerie Anniversary. Leather, silk or lace can re-fire the engines after a year of flannel pajamas that smell like the puppy,…

Donald Trump Hates Freedom of the Press, But Why?

Donald J Trump is challenging the concept of free press. He has publicly ridiculed ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, BBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, MSNBC, and many other news organizations. Some have called out his twitter rants as being distinctly fascist.
This past week on Meet the Press, John McCain, a Republican member of the U.S. Senate, while not mentioning Donald Trump specifically, called suppression of the press "how dictators get started". Freedom of the Press in the Constitution
Freedom of the Press isn't a new concept. Our founding fathers put it into the original Bill of Rights. Even in the 1789 they realized that a free press was essential for maintaining checks and balances to the power of government.

The Press in Colonial America
Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Alexander Hamilton and James Madison understood the power and value of the press. But what, exactly, was the press in pre-Constitution America? In colonial America around 1760 there were only 24 new…
