We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
The date of Jesus' death was the only one you seemed to answer seriously so I'll disagree and say that he died approx. 30 AD. The calendar is based on the supposed date of Christ's conception, not his death.
Naw, Jim's right, everybody knows "AD" is a contraction of "After Death", the years after the death of Jesus. English: "After Death", French: "Année de décès", Spanish: "Año defúncion", Latin: "anno decessus".
Jumpin' Joe Biden played on the Yankees Murderers' Row team of 1927, but he never got a chance to play with Joltin' Joe DiMaggio.
Or did I get that wrong- maybe it was that Joe Biden played with both Babe Ruth and Joltin' Joe DiMaggio, but had to reture suddenly in 1939 as a result of falling ill with a neurological disorder henceforth known as Joe Biden's disease. But I thought that Joe Biden's disease was an inability to stop running off at the mouth. Dang it, I can never get my facts straight.
whenever i see things like this, i always wonder how many people they needed to talk to to find this many idiots. hopefully there are many more that know the answers (and thus are not funny and get edited out).
Nope. Weekdays, weekends, makes no diff. That's the way it is now. California is a state that votes enthusiastically for its politicians to rip them all off in broad daylight in public. The politicians don't hide it and the voters don't mind.
I once visited Russia in the 1990's, after glasnost and perestroika. The people I talked to, once I got them talking, would just shake their heads fatalistically and say what a messed up crazy nonsensical country it was. Those people are me now, and California is Russia.
