Ngram ” I just wondered how people of yore (didn’t) think of pencils & pens & paper plates in the “millions-of,” or $ in the “billions or trillions-of.” hundred,thousand,million,billion,trillion ”
I’ve recently become aware of a feeling I have, that it’s “a new, valueable commodity” if it “comes in a plastic bag.”
I don’t like this feeling. It’s obviously a subtle advertising mind-mastered paradigm-shifting thing, (the feeling is too strong & foreign to be endogenous.) (More introspection will be put into this.)
I heard that the former Costa Concordia cap’n wants his job back. I say, “Fine! Put him back on it, and let it sit there!”
I recently heard a politician on t.v. talking about “I have a picture of me & the President,”
and right-after he said that, the echo of it sounded so hollow, and I realized that it was a really “hollow” thing to say, kind-of. (I think he realized it too.) And if I were there & quick-wittied & mean, I might’ve said, “So does the President have a picture of you on his wall?”
I recently heard that one politician said, “I like imposing my opinions on others.” and I’m like, “duh, doesn’t everyone?”
Was watching Roger Tolces – The Surveillance Police State & Electronic Harassment http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o0no2TZBTfk
He said as per the U.S. Styles Manual “ficticious name entity,” that a name spelled with all capital letters meant that it referred to a corporate entity that the actual was now in charge of, (responsible for). I found few references to it; one said in several replies on the same post that this was not true, but then at the bottom of the page, said: “and some formal company names;” (which opens the door again)! http://teamlawforum.net/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=130 (I’m glad they did say to go to the original sources & do your own homework.)
Mr. Tolces said that digestive tract cancer (“Gastrointestinal stromal tumor”?) was the second-leading cause of death. the CDC shows only cancer as a whole group, as far as I could find. I’m not sure where he got his info. [It is interesting that the CDC apparently keeps tabs on drownings & drycleaning!]

I hid a couple of nickels today – whoot!
And I threw a penny out, so as-to not waste the freight-gas it wouldv’e taken just to haul it home; right?
