The wife just whacked the back of my head and said "you're brain is miswired."

I've been told I'm a disconnect thinker.. what's that you say?
Let me give you two examples that just occurred this afternoon.

The first took place while I was sitting in an exam room waiting for my pulmonologist (annual Apnea checkup, he said to come back next year, here's your bill). As I was waiting, I was reading a kindle book on the History of the Dakota Apartment Building (the one where John Lennon was murdered). Quite an interesting history behind the building, but I digress. The chapter I was reading dealt with the difference between the upper-class East Side (Park Avenue) and the more culturally oriented West Side where the Dakota exists. Immediately upon reading that I stopped and began to expound upon the social aspects behind the lyrics of The Jefferson's theme song (Well we're movin' on up, To the east side, To a deluxe apartment in the sky). The connection isn't immediately obvious.

The second took place a few minutes ago while reading Steve G's thread on the sale of the Staten Island Ferry named after John Kennedy. My brain connected The ferry to the Staten Island Ferry Disaster that was purported to have occurred the same day Kennedy was assassinated, which then connected to two other notables who died the same day (Aldous Huxley and CS Lewis). I'll let you read the dribble I wrote in that thread to see the disconnected connection. [forums.macresource.com]

I'm one of those sad folks who know all the answers to the oddball Jeopardy categories. I can't answer the Shakespear clues but can expound on the relationship of 16th Century actors to modern day Porn Actors..

And that is why my wife slapped the back of my head. I can't really blame her. If you would like for her to slap my head for you, just ask*

I'll take slapping Ombligo in the back of the head for 1,000, Alex.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Not seeing a problem with your thinking-processes.

From my vantage, all you need is a spell-checker or a copyeditor with some spare time.

I thought maybe she discovered and then read your posts on the forum.

Pure coincidence... I have not been to NYC since June 1980, when a teacher unknowingly booked a high school trip to the hotel in Times Square. I understand that area is less "adult" oriented now.

And Connections sounds great. Just found it on youtube. Thanks, S. Pupp

So let me get this straight; since your mom's recent passing, the wife now thinks your head is fair game for her to whack in your mom's stead...?

I can see how the wife was threatened while your mom was still alive; fear of her MIL's retribution for usurping head-whacking duties, and all that.

I'm w/ Doc, not seein' a problem w/ the thought process; yours, or the wife's....

Just one question, who whacked your head better, the wife, or your dearly departed mom?

Examples weren't universally needed.

POMTL!

I love Connections.

A truly interesting and entertaining show.






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

If I were a friend of your wife, I would advise her to look for a way to sit back and enjoy the show.

(Of course, I'm sure your wife isn't interested in my advice.)

National Suicide Prevention Lifeline
As of July 16, 2022, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is now available by simply dialing 988. The previous number, 1-800-273-8255, will remain active.

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Does your wife hope to "re-wire" your head by smacking it?
