..some of which sound a little too odd
    111,111,111 x 111,111,111 = 12,345,678,987,654,321 Each year, over 1,000,000 people fail to itemize out the mortgage interest deduction on their income taxes. Last year, this amounted to $473,000,000 in taxes. In 1998, more fast-food employees were murdered on the job than police officers. The lead singer of The Knack, famous for "My Sharona," and Jack Kevorkian's lead defense attorney are brothers, Doug & Jeffrey Feiger. One out of three employees who received a promotion use a coffee mug with the company logo on it. If you know a millionaire who happens to be married, what is the most likely profession of his wife? She's probably a teacher. The "you are here" arrow on maps is called an ideo locator. Mark Twain was born on a day in 1835 when Halley's Comet came into view. When he died in 1910, Halley's Comet was in view again. In 1963, baseball pitcher Gaylord Perry remarked, "They'll put a man on the moon before I hit a home run." On July 20, 1969, a few hours after Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon, Gaylord Perry hit his first (and only) home run. All of the clocks in the movie "Pulp Fiction" read 4:20. A female ferret will die if it goes into heat and cannot find a mate. A snail can have about 25,000 teeth. A snail can also sleep for three years. A toothpick is the object most often choked on by Americans. About a third of all Americans flush the toilet while they're still sitting on it. According to Genesis 1:20-22 the chicken came before the egg. Soldiers from every country salute with their right hand. Only 14% of Americans say they've skinny dipped with the opposite sex. Half of all Americans live within 50 miles of their birthplace. 100% of all lottery winners gain weight. An average American will spend an average of 6 months during his lifetime waiting at red lights. 23% of employees say they have had sex in the office. Bullet proof vests, fire escapes, windshield wipers and laser printers were all invented by women. Married men change their underwear twice as often as single men. 40% of all people who come to a party in your home snoop in your medicine cabinet. 3.9% of all women surveyed say they never wear underwear. Superman is featured on every episode of "Seinfeld", either by name or pictures on Jerry's refrigerator. 85% of the guys who cheat on their wives die while having sex.
Now, don't you feel smarter?

Looks like that doesn't exitst in Europe these days. Holocaust Denier Gets Three Years in Jail -- Newsday.com
VIENNA, Austria -- Right-wing British historian David Irving was sentenced to three years in prison Monday after admitting to an Austrian court that he denied the Holocaust -- a crime in the country where Hitler was born. Irving, who pleaded guilty and then insisted during his one-day trial that he now acknowledged the Nazis' World War II slaughter of 6 million Jews, had faced up to 10 years behind bars. Before the verdict, Irving conceded he had erred in contending there were no gas chambers at the Auschwitz concentration camp.
But then again, maybe dumb thought does exist there. Putting somebody in jail for their thoughts, however wrong, is a good thing, how?

I took a few pictures while down in my dungeon today, and thought maybe I'd try to show a little bit of what I do in this little sideline of mine.
This is a new quilt, made by the Tomahawk Stitchers Quilt Guild as their raffle quilt this year. Buy a ticket or ten, it's a good fundraiser--not only for the guild (disclaimer: I'm loosely associated as a sometime member when I'm not in school or completely snowed under with work), but also for their projects like the local Food Pantry. They donate quite a bit of the funds raised with each raffle. Anyway, here we have the quilt float-mounted on the frame. Only the leading edge of the top is actually attached, with the rest "floated" and stitched down as I advance. This allows me to work out any fullness if the top is slightly imperfect--which isn't a problem with this one. TSQG start First thing I do is all of my outlining, known as "stitch -in-the-ditch" for the slightly raised area of the seam. Machine quilters don't actually stitch IN the ditch, but rather right next to it. Stitching slowly in regulated mode, and guiding with my fingers while using the pressure of my hand to control the machine: inditch I'm pretty steady with ditching vertical and horizontal lines, but diagonals are a #$(%*%, due to the way the wheels rest on the table. A machine head tends to travel the horizontal or the vertical naturally, and requires a guide of some sort for diagonal lines. I've heard there are quilters out there who can make a diagonal without a guide, but I have yet to meet one. For a short diagonal, such as the lines on this quilt, I use a 1/4 inch thick ruler. I hold it in place, and push the hopping foot along it in stitch regulated mode--meaning I move the machine, it stitches with no on/off button-pushing needed. guide And this is the result of a bit of the afternoon's work! Tomorrow we start the freehand work--that is, if the quilt tells me what to do. I hate it when I draw a blank on the design, although I have a few favorite styles to fall back on. result

I *know* what my VCR is going to be taping the next few Wednesdays!!! Monty Python's Personal Best and Flying Circus | PBS
“Monty Python’s Personal Best,” a series of six outrageous one-hour specials showcasing the groundbreaking comedians with new footage and original clips, will premiere on PBS February 22, 2006. Each episode will include members of the original Monty Python troupe performing in favorite clips from their unorthodox television series, “Monty Python’s Flying Circus,” repurposed with exclusive new material. Each of the five living Pythons — John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin — produced and wrote his own episode, and collaborated to create the sixth special in honor of deceased member Graham Chapman. The episodes will air over a three week period in two-hour blocks on PBS on February 22, March 1 and March 8.
