(The Simpsons) Principal Skinner: Not only are the trains now running on time, theyre running on metric time. Remember this moment, people: 80 past 2 on April 47th!
You know, at the time I thought I heard a reporter say that, but I thought, “Nah, they couldn’t be that dumb.”
Well, I guess stupidity is just rampant.
In a Bible passage in Daniel, speaking of the ultimate antichrist, speaks of him as one who changes the times... just a thought... Hugo just has the spirit of antichrist...
Dan 7:25 And he shall speak [great] words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
Once again life imitates art.
In Woody Allens movie Bananas Woodys character becomes president of a banana republic when the communist rebel leader loses his mind, decreeing that the official language is now Swedish and that everyone must wear their underpants on the outside of their clothes.
Chavez has become that commy revolutionary nitwit.
“makes one as mad as a rat in a coffe can.”
Or as a cop friend of my son’s said about a guy during a domestic disturbance call, “He’s crazier than a s***house rat.”
"Don't say anything about his scar . . . You'll see it but don't say it, you follow my drift? The other thing, be sure to compliment his art collection."
Last night I was watching a spanish talk show which had a guest on who met Chavez back in ‘97. He said that Chavez came on another talk show and told a story about how would sit every morning at the breakfast table with am empty chair beside him because he felt that Bolivar’s spirit was with him eating breakfast. The audience was laughing along but this guy knew that he was just plain crazy.
Common time zones for large regions was necessary. Chaos reigned before the change.
"Rebels are we! Born to be free! Just like the fish in the sea!
Half hour time zones are nothing new. If he really wanted to raise a ruckus, he’d offset by 22 minutes or some other such nonsense.
Shades of a Steve Martin skit.
I used to have one of those, but it kept running fast.
So, uh, why doesn't he have school start a half hour later?
Venezuela sets it clocks back half an hour and a century and a half.
That was my point.
Really, why not just change the time they go to school? He’s squirrelly.
Why not just remove the minute hand from all clocks.Pres.dingbat
