That’s not true. I saw Superman turn a piece of coal into a diamond buy crushing it with his bare hands.

Thirty-two percent of U.S. adults say they personally own a gun, while a larger percentage, 44%, report living in a gun household.

That's a giggler right there Al. They left out the 40% of us gun owners who said, "None of your cotton picking business!"

High heeled shoes started as a fashion trend among men.

Spam is especially popular in the state of Hawaii, where residents have the highest per capita consumption in the United States. Its perception there is very different from on the mainland. Hawaiians sometimes call it "Portagee Steak".

San Francisco, one of the richest cities in America is struggling with sticky fingers.

Walgreens has closed 17 of its San Fran stores due to rampant stealing because of defunding the PD and changing the law of shoplifting $950 or less to a misdemeanor.

Brendan Dugan, the director of the retail crime division at CVS Health, called San Francisco “one of the epicenters of organized retail crime” and said employees were instructed not to pursue suspected thieves because encounters had become too dangerous.
“We’ve had incidents where our security officers are assaulted on a pretty regular basis in San Francisco,” Dugan said.

Over forty years ago Dallas 7-11's were being robbed every day. Dallas police installed dark bullet proof glass booths in most of them. Inside there might or might not be a policeman with a shotgun. These were called "shotgun squads". If a robbery was taking place the police with no warning just used their shotguns. Put a stop to the robberies pretty fast after they shot a couple. The robbers just moved to Ft Worth. FT Worth then had to do the same. That was the good ole days.

Did you know you are wasting an average of 6 Hours a day reading posts like this on the internet and mobile devices?.. I believe that number to be much higher though..

But do you know why you give other drivers the middle finger..I believe it comes from the old days when the French and Brits were always at battle. It seem that if those paces of crap cowardly Frenchmen would catch a Brit..They would chop their middle finger off so they could not pull a bow string..

So from across the battle feild the Brits started displaying to the French that they still had that middle finger by holding it up for them..

Well there went 2 minutes of my 6 Hours today..

"The bird" has been around since at least ancient (BC) Greece, and was in common use throughout the Roman empire.

Other countries have different gestures. The bird was never used where I grew up (UK and Africa) but an equivalent was thumb between index and middle fingers of a clenched fist (Africa) or the index and middle finger were thrust up in a V (UK).
