Weekend Comment Diversion: How Do You Not Fall Down More?
- Run the engine in my completely snow-encased car to warm it up for snow removal.
- Used scissors for a coin toss.
- Bought two lottery tickets with the same numbers to "double my chances".
Those examples might have allowed me to maintain my amateur status for the Harebrain Olympics. This next one forced my transition to Professional Pinhead:
We were watching that charming claymation show about a family of penguins and their friends: Pingu. In this simply delightful episode, they were putting on a snow circus.
As I watched the figures rolling around in the snow, I wondered, "Do they have multiple models of each character? It would take so long to re-shape them each time, especially because it's so cold." After about a two second pause, my brain informed me that was the STUPIDEST thought I have ever had. It was right.
