Why would people who have complained about the horrid economy all year line up to shop on Black Friday? Spending credit money they do not have while bragging about how much they saved?
CLUE + HINT = If you're spending you're not saving.
True.. but for some people its a case of just wanting something nice for a change. Dont agree about the bragging though..

Actually, this has a serious answer. Traditionally, red ink was used for recording debts, while black was used for recording positive numbers. So accountants want to see things "in the black." So if large retailers operate on a deficit through much of the year, Black Friday is when they start to bring their figures into the black. After that point, it is supposedly all profits.
Actually, I was aware of this. I was just trying to keep with the spirit of this thread by asking why do they call it Black Friday when it is always one of the best, if not the best days for retailers. Fun spoiler (LOL)!

Why is it when a lie is repeated often enough, people will believe it while when they are lectured truthfully time and time again on the same subject, they never listen?

Not a fun spoiler at all, as trivia and technical knowledge give me the most pleasure. For me, fun is incorporated into every aspect of life, not just set aside times.

But if we want to ponder, it is surprising few consider it a racist term. If White people celebrate Black Friday, do Black folks celebrate White Friday? Plus what about Green and Blue people?

Do you realize that if Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner got married they'd both be Taylor Lautner?

I asked my wife what she wanted for Christmas and she said "Nothing would make me happier than diamond earrings."

I want my baby to be happy, so I'm getting her nothing.

You'll keep us posted on how that goes, right?

I'm thinking your followup will be something like "Now why didn't I fix the roof and insulate the dog house when it was warm out?"

Then again, you'd only have 7 letters to type with, and if you want to say something sharp, you only have to add #. Or if your words come out wrong, add a "b" to the end.
That would be assuming I label the piano keys in the normal octave naming scheme.

You could also assign middle C as letter A, D becomes letter C, E would still be E as would F, G becomes H, and so on.

And if you use capital and lowercase letters you can have 52 notes.

oF COURSE, THAT MIGHT LOOK LIKE i ACCIDENTALLY LEFT THE cAPSlOCK kEY ON. bUT IT SOUNDED LIKE mOZART!

Millions of people are skilled in speaking truth...but not the truth in love.
the stupid thing i need to ponder is whether or not Daniel Craig and Russel Crowe can make the new "The Man that shot Libberty Valance"...seriously it needs to happen. Crowe can actually be Liberty if he feels like it...

Now you have me thinking that "nothing" may not be a good idea. Butthere is a reason I have to ask specifically what she wants. Last year I asked what she wanted for Christmas and she said "I don't know."

A couple of days later I saw a rusty little piece of metal while on a walk, so I kept it and gave it to her on Christmas Day.

"What's this?" she asked.

"I don't know," I said.

So to keep with the Spirit of Christmas, I went in and asked the wife what she wanted this year.

Smiling, she said "Oh, I don't kn.... ummm, maybe something tasteful, cool and sparkly."

So I've got it figured out... a bottle of 7 Up it is then.

Last January it was very cold here, so I have to thank you so much for helping me out this year.

Great idea!
I suggest your 7-up needs some ice in it.
About two carats worth should do.
You're welcome.

"Ice?" "Carots?" Okay. I think you're making fun of me. I asked the wife, again, what she wants and it turns out that 7 Up doesn't fit the clue she gave me. She said "It starts with an 'R' and ends with a 'G' and fits nicely on my hand and I want to wear it every day."

So I finally have it all figured out. A new rag for dishes it is!

Thanks again!

My wife came in and was reading over my shoulder. She asked me to get off the computer for a minute and said "I want you to give me a ring this Christmas."

And I said "Why would I phone you? I'll be here and we can talk face to face."
