I like your Yardarm Mean Time. Setting my clock to match!

We have been outside most of the day -- HOT here now. Yesterday,
we canoed down to a little inlet between the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges yesterday and were there when a march that seemed to be at least twice the length of the bridge came over the Brooklyn. Amazing! We were whistling and screaming from the boats, but I don't think anyone could hear us except the cops in their boat out in the river. Heading to Queens in a bit for another protest. But when we return, it's daiquiri time!

Ray Milland played The Man With The XRay Eyes ! Spoiler Alert... At the end he could see into the Center of the Universe and he saw God! Then he plucked his eyes out of his head and could still see ! Also the great insult comic Don Rickles played Xs manager, a con man using Xs power for money!

I think it was edited out but it would have made a big impact to the story. I'm not sure but I think I heard they didn't want to upset the audience by getting too heavy with the use oh God and all that it implied!

Does it have to be $64,000?
Avatar 1:41pm zivilars:

considering inflation, the $64.000 question back then probably was what is the $1.000.000 question now

OK, Fools! Sad to leave you and enter the world of the browed, but it has to be done. Catch you next time!

The $64,000 answer: YES!!!
Avatar 1:43pm zivilars:

@johnk77: I had SiriusXM for a while and listened to Bill's show there back then (only subscribed for The Underground Garage) – unfortunately, I don't have it anymore. Too expensive – and too difficult to pay here from Germany, as it is basically illegal to subscribe from here ... (not that they were gladly willing to take my money with a fake NY address, of course, but as a non-native speaker, I hate that cancelling isn't possible without telephoning them ... :)
