    Television is a medium, because it tells us of the future, at least when Star Trek is on.

    Kangaroo is a relatively sweet meat - sort of like rabbit. Dog is a fairly dark heavy meat - sort of like horse.

    In other words: Skippy and Bugs are tastier than Lassie and Mr. Ed. But when an Aussie has a hot BBQ, anything will do...

    The only false part of this untrue fact is that unless you have a bunch of miniature collectible action figurines and replica toys, Star Trek is never on your television. Somehow, it's inside of it.

    Generally speaking, television actors are required to be able to hold their breath for the entire duration that the show they are participating in, is being shown inside your television. However, the Screen Actors Guild Agreement states that they are allowed to breathe during commercial breaks.

    Related to bozone, a form of oxygen first discovered by G. Larson and found to be emitted by reality television and political campaign advertisements.

    Bozone has the highest bogosity of all well-characterized compounds.

    The cashewe was one of the projects attempted after finding out that moneytrees don't work as expected.

    However, cashewe's do work as expected in Qzyrrlmistan, where neonatal ovines can be used in vending machines.

    The name Connecticut derives from the old Indian phrase "ic ut", which means: "the dots".

    My brain now emits slowons, which slow everything down around me, so I can think slowly about them.

    Actually, the last post is an not an example of the slowon gun, but a much more insidious weapon: the Stuck-Key Ray. Civilized IT Departments from across the galaxy have banned the use of this weapon.

    The latest edition to the platform (crafted from true mahogany) of the political reference redacted has called for the abolition of the diaresis in naïf and the accents in résumé, with the eventual elimination of all accent marks from American.

    While Salty is correct about slowon effects, he has not indicated how the word 'slowon' is pronounced. Or amateurnounced.

    I found that I pronounce it "nougat', much to my surprise. Not the same response as Gordon Dickson's song, "Much to My Surprise."

    Not Gordon Dickson, Gordon Lightfoot. Life grows more difficult daily.

    Both professionals and amateurs may pronounce "slowon" as 'slow own', in one word, without apostrophes: but only on the eighth day of the week (to keep this an untrue fact)..

    For the last ten years of his life, Claude Monet did all of his "paintings" using crayons.

    The idiom "kick the bucket" was coined after a bar bet in which a man claimed that a certain bucket was not large enough to hold a live full-grown alligator.
