Pancakes on Wednesdays
Pancakes are very good for you.

Welcome to Pancakes on Wednesdays.

Wednesday October 1, 2003


Here is an amalgamation of trivial facts and seemingly useless data.

Do not forget to hit the hyperlinks.

We have links, lots of them.

Look it up!

SCIOLIST

A superficial pretender to knowledge.

Some dictionaries mark this word as archaic. A typical example appears in an article by Thomas Henry Huxley in the Fortnightly Review in 1878: “Judged strictly by the standard of his own time, Bacon’s ignorance of the progress which science had up to that time made is only to be equalled by his insolence toward men in comparison with whom he was the merest sciolist”.

The word, as you might guess from the spelling, comes from Latin. It derives from the verb scire, to know, which is also the root of other English words, like prescient, science, omniscient and conscience. The immediate Latin original was the diminutive sciolus, a person who had only a smattering of knowledge.

The related noun is sciolism, the practice of giving one’s opinions on subjects of which one has only superficial knowledge. That is a little more common, but the only recent example I’ve turned up was written by the American author and playwright Herb Greer in the National Review in 1998: “Tynan’s awful political sciolism sparks out now and again, but not offensively”.

Store it in the back of your mind—you never know when it might come in handy, simultaneously showing your own word power and your opinion of your opponent. By the time he has found a sufficiently large dictionary to discover you’ve insulted him, you can be well away.


Happy Birthday

My doctor gave me six months to live, but when I couldn't pay the bill he gave me six months more.

For a happy day, start with some pancakes


Todays Wednesday field trip takes us to Wonderland

Happy Birthday

Rod Carew 1945

 He won the AL Rookie of the Year award in 1967 and was an All-Star for the first of 18 consecutive seasons.

We are counting cards.

There is a special sensation in getting good wood on the ball and driving a double down the left-field line as the crowd in the ballpark rises to its feet and cheers. But, I also remember how much fun I had as a skinny barefoot kid hitting a tennis ball with a broomstick on a quiet, dusty street in Panama.


Quadratic Equations.

Wednesday + Pancakes = Happiness


Potatos can be in pancakes too.

On this day:

1928 - Duke Ellington recorded "The Mooche."

I merely took the energy it takes to pout and wrote some blues.


Pancakes on Wednesdays does commercials

Instant Pancakes

Watch out for the AOL intrusive commercial at this link.


1596 - The Duke of Norfolk was imprisoned by Britain's Queen Elizabeth for trying to marry Mary the Queen of Scots.

Marry Mary how contrary .

 

We are counting cards

Off with their Burkas.


Happy Birthday

1781 - James Lawrence 

During the War of 1812 Lawrence commanded the U.S.S. hornet in the capture of H.M.S. Peacock

Don't let them take the Pancakes.

The American naval officer whose dying words were "Don't give up the ship."

Lawrence's words became the motto of the U.S. Navy, which has named numerous ships in his honor.


1880 - Thomas Edison began the commercial production of electric lamps at Edison Lamp Works in Menlo Park.

A good idea is never lost. Even though its originator or possessor may die, it will someday be reborn in the mind of another....

 

The lighter side of humor is linked above.


Pancakes are very versatile.

Would you like some subtropical anticyclones with your pancakes?

1903 - The first modern World Series took place between the Boston Pilgrims and the Pittsburgh Pirates.

BELIEVE,BELIEVE,BELIEVE,BELIEVE

The Boston Pilgrims

Worlds Series

Champions

1903

Who was on first.


About a hundred dollars

1908 - The Model T automobile was introduced by Henry Ford.
The purchase price of the car was $850.

 

We are counting cars.

 

I am an excellent driver

Q: How can you tell when a blonde has been baking chocolate chip cookies?

1961 - Roger Maris of the New York Yankees hit his 61st home run of the season to beat Babe Ruth's major league record of 60.

Sixty one is a prime number.


Pancakes have never caused an airline accident.

1971 - Walt Disney World opened in Orlando, FL.

1981 - EPCOT (Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow) Center opened in Florida.

The concept was planned by Walt Disney.

It's kind of fun to do the impossible.


1989 - The authorized Charles Schulz biography, Good Grief, was published.

In the book of life, the answers aren't in the back.


Skillet, and panhead music.

Pancakes Wednesdays
Definitely

Support Fisher House
The Fisher House program is a unique private-public partnership that supports America's military in their time of need by providing homes close to a loved one during the hospitalization for an unexpected illness, disease, or injury.

There are currently 31 houses located on the grounds of every major military medical center and several VA medical centers. These houses will play a critical role in caring for casualties from Operation Iraqi Freedom. Donations will be used to help meet the cost of lodging for a family whose loved one was injured in Operation Enduring Freedom or Operation Iraqi Freedom. There is a limit to the number of families who can stay in a Fisher House and program is committed to help provide lodging for families who must find commercial lodging, because the Fisher House is full.

You think you're hot?
Our military forces in Iraq sweat it out in 130 degree heat everyday!
Cool Our Troops is a non-profit effort to 'Cool' our troops in Iraq. They are raising funds to send personal misters to 50,000 military personnel serving in Iraq. The misters are portable, no batteries or electricity required, and rely on evaporation to cool surrounding temperatures by 20-30 degrees.

Today's FEEBLE attempt at humor:

The Food and Drug Administration approved a video-camera pill
Wednesday.  "Swallow-Cam," as some call it, will transmit
pictures of your digestive system. 

Wow, the Food Network MUST be desperate for new program
ideas.
