Her: do you want ice cream or cake?
Me: Yes.

(Applying logical mathematical definition of "or" - if the answer to either option is "Yes" the result of the "or" operator is "Yes". Literally: "Yes, I do want ice cream or cake.").

If she needs one and was going to buy one then a cash gift for half the price is a nice gift. Paying for all of it would be even nicer, but you two should talk about it. Women still like a man who can take care of them (if my wife is anything to go by). But if paying for all of it would put resentme...

The idea that Germans cannot be lovable is a bit hard for me to take. Germans are people too. I have a friend who grew up in the USA at a time where a German accent or a german looking actor was always the bad guy. When the bad guys always looked like her dad it was kind of hard on her. Her dad was ...

Our cat likes cheese and pie crust, but not peanut butter.

He also likes to play board games. He will sit on the rug next to the game and wait his turn, then reach out one paw and move one of the pieces.

I saw “Stalag 17” and the “Great Escape”. In one they dig a tunnel in the other they make and launch an airplane. The book about the “Great Escape” was good too. The movie “Chicken Run” uses images and themes from these movies. I liked Hogan Hero’s as a kid. There was a lot of fiction and some facts...

I have yet to see this. Fatman (2020) I like Mel Gibson films in general. FWIW Chris Kringle is not "the secret identity of Santa" but comes from the German word Christkindl, meaning Christ child, because German children believe that the baby Jesus brings presents during the Christmas sea...

If you have a pace maker controlled by your cell phone then you are a cyborg. This is another thing I don't understand. Why on earth would people have things in their bodies controlled by their phones? Surely anyone could hack in and break the equipment and probably kill you. Why do people have the...

Silly old question - comes up every so often. My favorite variation is to point that there are more deaths in White Christmas (1954) off screen than in Die Hard. It is a Christmas movie, (by some definitions) and I will not be watching it with my family. If you are looking for Christmas movies that ...
