Keep a Coolin’ Baby

A body temperature of 98.6˚F, or 37˚C is no longer normal, as new research finds the average human body temperature has dropped.  These temperatures remained a standard for over a century and a half, but humans have started cooling off.  As a result, the new normal seems closer to 97.5˚F, or 36.4˚C and this can be even lower for people over 65.

Oh My

It is coming and there ain’t nothing that you can do about it.  WordPress is ramming the new Block Editor on us and all we can do is bend over and take it.
From WordPress, “On June 1 we’ll be retiring our older WordPress.com editor and transitioning to the more recent (and more powerful) WordPress block editor.”

Thinking with My

I removed the last bag of groceries from my cart when this sexy lady approached me and said, “Can I have it?”, and I replied, “Wow, I am flattered.  You mean right here in the parking lot, like on the hood of my car, as it might be better if we went to a hotel.”  She said, “No silly, I was talking about your cart, as they don’t have any more carts.”  I said, “Sure, as that could be a problem.”  She took the cart and as she walked toward the store I said, “It squeaks and it pulls to the left.”  She said, “Most men would be ashamed to admit that, I admire your honesty, as I could see that being a real big problem for you.”  I said, “Lady, I was talking about the cart.”

Contraceptive Device

I always thought that a rubber baby buggy bumper was just a tongue-twister phrase designed to make it difficult for people to articulate properly.  I just found out that this is actually a vaginal diaphragm (thin sheet of material that forms a partition), which blocks the sperm from reaching the egg during copulation and it was invented in 1842.

Cat’s Pajamas

In the U.S. this adjective used by hipsters of the 1920’s, along with other phrases like the ‘bee’s knees’.  The word cat was used as a term to describe the unconventional flappers, free-spirited women with an avant-garde wardrobe and this was combined with the word pajamas.  Together it formed a phrase used to describe something that is the best at what it does, the hottest new thing, something highly sought after and desirable.

Unbelievable

This guy just told me that China is killing people with coronavirus and I guess that is one way to stop an epidemic.  Some websites publish hoax stories to boost their circulation and people go around repeating information that is not genuine news.  When a story raises a number of red flags, it is best to investigate it, before you go around spreading fake rumors.
