Definitely could be in the Happiness thread. :D
That's about as dumb an idea as I've ever heard of.
Can you imagine if I suggested the M stood for men all these years?
Ridiculous, well maybe except for the "Over 99 Billion Served" part of the sign ;)

I've heard of dumber ideas...

Fast food is a dying industry for millennials and McDonalds is trying to drum up positive media attention.

Female mass shooters are rare. A recent Washington Post analysis shows only three out of 150 U.S. shootings with more than four victims since 1966 were done by women.

The Winstar foaling cams really suck this year. Grainy pic, goes down all the time- and it seems like most of the mares they now put in the stalls are "client" mares- so you dont know who the mare is.
I am grateful that they allow this- but I have been watching for several years and it's horrible. I get the whole privacy thing with the "client" mares- but there are certain mares that they have put on year after year (who are favorites) and not showing up. I know that they are still there because they show up on the weekly Foal Friday segment- again, grateful, but I really do like watching the actual birth- even if it is a delay. Everyone is complaining- not sure what the issue is..

I think alot of people realized how piss poor it is this year when Foal Patrol came on line with their spectacular site- live and clear.

I get the whole privacy and protection thing- but they have had the product out for a number of years, and it's regressing.

I downgraded my membership - not worth it.

Rant over.

Was a 9-day walkout protest by Oklahoma teachers worth it?

https://www.cnn.com/2018/04/12/us/oklah ... index.html

The walkout ends with roughly the same amount of extra education spending secured before the nine-day action began: about $479 million for teacher and support staff salaries and school needs for the upcoming fiscal year.
That raises public school spending to $2.9 billion next school year, up from $2.4 billion this year.

From another generation.....I miss the days when stand-up comedy was done by a professional like Bob Hope and the Dean Martin Roasts were actually funny.

After 108 years, the Boy Scouts program is set to drop the gender from its name and re-emerge as "Scouts BSA," a more "inclusive" group that will also soon welcome girls in its ranks.

Boy Scouts of America, the parent organization of the Boy Scouts program, made the announcement Wednesday. Though the decision to toss "Boy" aside was considered controversial by some, Chief Scout Executive Mike Surbaugh said the new name came about after an "incredibly fun" deliberation.

The Girl Scouts said their organization was blindsided by the move and are planning an aggressive campaign to ramp up recruitment numbers

When I was little I broke my ankle jumping over a septic tank. A few years back I blew out my knee while cleaning salamander poop. This morning I broke and dislocated my toe by stepping on a laundry basket.

When it comes to embarrassing-yet-serious injuries, I am a freaking Triple Crown winner.

I shouldn't laugh because I just had a fever for two straight days after one workout, but man, you have bad luck.

So I go into a popular SoCal restaurant, StoneFire, that does quite the take-out business for the their BBQ stuff. Upon checking out, the bill was $84 and I pulled out my trusty AmEx card and lo and behold when given the receipt to sign there was no place to add in a tip. I know that there's plenty of work that goes into getting a to-go order prepared and I certainly don't object to tipping, but I had to explain that since the advent of on-line wagering I simply have little reason to carry any cash. I did notice some large fishbowls on the counter filled with various denominations of currency but quite frankly I was pretty darn embarrassed. My waitress said it was a management decision to program the computers in such a way that no tips be made on credit cards. For the life of me I can't figure out the reason why?

But their food is easy to recommend and don't forget the carrot cake!

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – The Miss America Organization is dropping the swimsuit competition from its nationally televised broadcast, saying it will no longer judge contestants on their appearance.

I don't know. Maybe women being hired based on their abilities and not on their looks, and paid the same as men in the same job? :P
