>Tonight’s ‘Great’ Meteor Shower

It looks like we might have good viewage here in the Spud State.
Give it a try, you’ll be glad you did.

“Many meteor showers tend to disappoint, but the annual Geminid shower is relatively reliable. And this year’s version, which peaks tonight, is expected to be a great one. Meteors could start showing up anytime after dark this evening, Dec. 13, low on the eastern horizon. A better display should begin after 10 p.m. or so, when the constellation Gemini, from which the meteors emanate, rises higher into the Eastern sky. • Click here to visit’s Space Center. By 2 a.m. Friday, Dec. 14, Gemini is directly overhead, and meteors will streak outward in all directions like spokes on a wheel, weather permitting. Forecasters predict one or two shooting stars per minute during the peak hours.” – Be Sure to See Tonight’s ‘Great’ Meteor Shower:

>Pretend to be a Time Traveler Day

>Heck, I missed it… Wait, I’m a Time Traveler, I’ll just go back!

“This is genius! Saturday, December 8th has been declared ‘Pretend to be a Time Traveler Day.’ The whole idea is to pretend for the day that you are a traveler from a different time – except that, of course, you can’t actually *tell* people you’re a time traveler, because they’ll think you’re crazy. There are, of course, options as to how a traveler from a certain other time might act:”

Hmmmm, this could be fun.

…- If you go the “prisoner who’s escaped the future” try shaving your head and putting a barcode on the back of your neck. Then stagger around and stare at the sky, as if you’ve never seen it before.

– Walk up to random people and say “WHAT YEAR IS THIS?” and when they tell you, get quiet and then say “Then there’s still time!” and run off.

– Stand in front of a statue (any statue, really), fall to your knees, and yell “NOOOOOOOOO”

>McDonald’s Fines Slow Eaters

>Well, it’s really not the eating, it’s the parking.
I can totally understand the problem. People park in the McDonald’s lot and leave their car there for a couple of hours so they can go shopping.
Inconvenient parking is one reason why we don’t live in a big city. There is *always* lots of free parking at Wal*Mart.
