You may recall in early September I told the story of my blowing out a tire by hitting a curb while attempting to get on the freeway. Well, someone else just did the same thing the other night!
I’m not the only one.
Unless you make it quick. I had an unusual one the other morning that I hope is amusing enough to break rule one of the Dimland Radio Rules On Telling People About Your Dreams. What is rule number one?
Rule Number One is DON’T!
But I talked about the dream anyway.
A sharp-eyed fan of The Far Side comic strip, the greatest comic strip ever, brought this to the attention of The Far Side Fan Group on Facebook. Francisco Melara spotted something wrong with the door in the classic “Midvale School for the Gifted” strip. The smart kid in the comic doesn’t know how to open the door. He’s obviously doing the opposite of what the door is instructing him to do, but the pneumatic closer is on the wrong side of the door!
The Far Side goof prompted a FB person to share a video telling us about Norman Doors. Norman Doors are named for Don Norman, a really smart guy who got tired of poorly designs things which we use every day. Things like doors.

A Scary Story About A Woman With Huuuuuuuuuge Booooobs
Like a car accident you can’t help but look at, I recently encountered a woman whose breasts were quite large. I did my best not to stare, but I was then accused of staring, not at the woman with the you know, nope. No, I was accused of staring at a 4 year-old child.
I wasn’t. Not at the child and not at the woman with the…things.
Why did he kill himself and why so publicly? He was distraught that his daughter got engaged without his permission. At least, he didn’t kill her or anyone else, but that daughter has to live with this now.
As disturbing as this story is, what I found more upsetting was the person, a woman, who shared the story on Facebook was blaming the daughter!
