Oh by the way, folks,
Yes, folks, Christianity isn't the only religion that's got magic relics. Islam has got them, too. Muhammad's hair, washed in some special sorta holy water, supposedly has magic powers. But how can we prove the hair is Muhammad's hair? And how can we prove the water came from that special well it's claimed to be from?
Oh well, no accounting for beliefs, I guess.
I've been wondering why dining utensil sets often come with two slightly different size forks. Hey, a fork is a fork, isn't it?
For instance, we dined out last night, a three-course dinner: salad, main course, and dessert. A new fork for each course, which is fairly usual practice. All three forks were identical. Guess what, folks! The same model of fork worked equally well for all three courses!
At least we've backed off from the Victorian Era ideal of 18 spoons, 23 forks, and 16 knives, different only in exotic ways nobody'd ever notice, just to be able to make fun of people who didn't know the difference.
Anyhow, today looks like it's gonna be a great day except that it's gonna get awful hot.
