October, Halloween, And Baseball Are Over
The Moment Of Silence Cough
Have you ever noticed that during a moment of silence there almost always seems to be at least one person who coughs. The further past three seconds the moment of silence lasts the chances of there being a cougher get to be nearly 100%.
What is going on? Sure, a sizeable percentage of the coughs are from people who just have to cough and they can’t help it, but it seems to me there are those who want to be able to say, “Did you hear that cough? That was me!”
I mentioned one cough in particular that came up in one of my favorite TV sit coms: The UK series The Good Life or Good Neighbors, as it is called in the US. Just prior to the end credits there was a bit of silence and there it was – a cough.
Go to the 29:49 mark in the video at this link to hear the cough.
There was a World Series after all. I had to talk about it. Just a little. Didn’t I?

|Oh, come on! Watch the game!|
And Then There Were These Two

As I did the show, it occurred to me that there wasn’t one instance of the singing of God Bless America during the World Series! At least I didn’t see it and I watched the games. In fact, I didn’t see any instances of that new tradition that Fox Sports and the Hated Yankees were trying to shoehorn into baseball in the wake of 9/11 this postseason.
I stumbled upon a two part YouTube video series on one man’s hypothesis as to what was really going on in Stanley Kubrick horror classic The Shining (1980). He believes that a major difference on the film from the book is that there are ghosts in the book. He believes the strange happenings in Kubrick’s version are due to psychic projection.
|Well, they are, but they aren’t, but maybe they are.|
