    Come on people, I need more posts to read with my morning coffee. Shirley Shaggy has a fun pun to share.

    Sounds like you're related to "Slip" Mahoney. Must be a west coast cousin.

    Yeah, I figured the leader of "The Bowery Boys" series from the 50's would be a bit obscure (although perhaps age appropriate).
    His character was known for his malapropism, which the phrase "cumulous knowledge" certainly sounds like something he would say and "cirrus-ly" might be considered an example of a malaprop, although that could be a stretch.

    I wasn't around in the 50's, and I didn't have a TV until...well, I still don't have one, so we'll see.

    Re: Post Race!

    Well, if you were really curious, I'm sure episodes could be found on-line, but I don't know that it would be worth the effort.
    For some reason, I figured you were a bit older than I, but then I wasn't around for most of the 50's either.

    In my case, I've really only seen them because of the TCM (Turner Classic Movies) channel. I donate platelets every couple of weeks which means sitting / lying on a recliner type chair at the local redcross donation center for a bit more than two hours every other Saturday. I don't like commercials, so I put up with watching old movies on TCM during that time that I'm immobilized.

    As an alternative, the redcross have a bunch of movies on DVDs that I could choose from, but that just seems like too much work, so I settle for watching the "classics". They did start going through a long series of Tarzan movies, and after a number of weeks of that, it was too much and so I moved on to another network for awhile, but the Tarzan period is over, so I'm back.

    Wouldn't have seen them otherwise, as I don't care to watch TV at home, and didn't have one in the house myself, until I got married.

    Though the thought of not ever watching TV seems strange to me, I've heard it enough times that it doesn't surprise me. To each his own. But what I find bizarre is people that watch TV/Movies on their phones/Tablets/Laptops. To my grandkids this is just normal. I'm old school, 65", surround sound, recliner and beverage.

    April 2 1604 was the date of the initial precedent put into practice by Parliament during the speakership of Sir Edward Phelips (and which is now part of Erskine May [the UK parliamentary rule book]) which the then Speaker Bercow cited during 2019 for refusing to allow more than one vote on essentially the same Brexit motion in the same parliamentary session.

    I was thinking of getting Len(something) with a squiggly line under the something, which would get me Len-y and squigg-y, but it would require a picture...and it's too much work for the post race.

    Re: Post Race!

    I found it interesting/funny that no one at Tesla understood the physics, or didn't speak up, when they decided to demonstrate the toughness of the windows by throwing a heavy steel bearing at the side windows.

    In the factory they had thrown various things at the windows, like wrenches and other items hanging around the shop and the windows didn't break.
    But during the live demo had decided to throw a small steel ball at the windows, I guess figuring they were even lighter than the wrenches, and then were surprised when the windows fracture in a circle around the point of impact.

    Hey Tesla, you throw a wrench at a window a lot of the momentum of the wrench will be transferred along the wrench to impart rotation around the center of mass when it hits something, so the impact on the window is much less at any give time, and you also get multiple impacts.
    If you throw a sphere at a window, pretty much the full mass and momentum of the sphere will impact the very small tangent point of where the sphere contacts the window. So, throwing a steel bearing at the window is like holding a pointy chisel against the window and hitting the chisel with a hammer.
