Miss Aisles


When a aircraft flies above a certain altitude, the toilet holding tank fluid freezes onto the empennage, the tail surfaces, in large chunks of blue ice.

The stuff cakes up and eventually falls off and heads down.  Landing on any poor sod on the ground who happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time..

Goes to show you.

You don’t need to be in a military target to be attacked by an icy BM.

Great Grandpa’s Life


The Minox Riga, the first true, sub-minature spy camera that saw actual use for espionage throughout the WWII and the cold war.

Invented in 1936 by Walter Zapp, it was the first to use 8x11mm film (a little smaller than your pinky’s fingernail), making it tiny enough to hide in the palm of your hand, but powerful enough to take high resolution photographs of your enemy’s top secret documents.

If Great Grandpa used one of these he would never be able to talk about it!

Not Only Old But Inexcusable!


Steven Spielberg was discussing his new project – an action docu-drama about famous composers starring top movie stars. Sylvester Stallone, Steven Segal, Bruce Willis, and Arnold Schwarzenegger were all present. Spielberg strongly desired the box office ‘oomph’ of these superstars, so he was prepared to allow them to select whatever composers they would portray, as long as they were very famous.

“Well,” started Stallone, “I’ve always admired Mozart. I would love to play him.”

“Chopin has always been my favorite, and my image would improve if people saw me playing the piano,” said Willis. “I’ll play him.”

“I’ve always been partial to Strauss and his waltzes,” said Segal. “I’d like to play him.”

Spielberg was very pleased with these choices. “Sounds splendid.” Then,looking at Schwarzenegger, he asked, “Who do you want to be, Arnold?”

So Arnold says……..

“I’ll be Bach.”

Because of complicated comment procedures, I cannot enter the commentatory riot which took place on Daddy Papersurfer’s blog when this wonderful whimsy was published there.

So I am stealing it.

Although I don’t know what other people will sayers – – –
