READ ALL ABOUT IT
Have you ever wondered how old Mr. Clean is? The bald guy who is the shill for a household cleaner that carries his name? Well, you came to the right place, my friend. He is 59 this year, first appearing in 1957. Funny, the guy never seems to age.
Now be honest, did you ever think that all of the problems in the world could be eliminated with a "Fix-MeStick, a Swiffer Mop, an Acorn Stairlift, and a sample pack of Cialis"?
Not saying this writer is any hockey expert, but notice a lot of the NHL goalies these days are doing a lot of stretching to make saves, flopping down on the ice, and with the quality of the forwards these days picking the top corner to easily score, all the while the goalie is flat on the ice, helpless.
The best netminders have more luck defending shots by staying on their skates, and covering more of the net with their body, retaining mobility to block rebounds.
And as long as we are expressing opinions on hockey, especially when no Canadian teams have any chance to make post-season, another observation we have made over the past while is, managers can't ice winning teams by gathering an armful of future draft picks. While teams may not have pay future draft picks, they don't score goals either. Instant success doesn't come along very often.
Heard the other day that more people died last year while taking "selfies", than were killed in shark attacks. The announcer explained this was due to people falling off cliffs, or vehicle accidents, while doing self photos.
Really, how many photos of ones self do you need?
Happened to be buying TP the other day, and saw this on the packaging.
Now readers know we can't resist a comment on something as absurd as this "claim of superiority" in the toilet paper department.
So here goes.
We can only imagine that somewhere in this world there is a test lab set up in order that the company producing this much-needed commodity can test many brands that claim better removal qualities than others.
So then, who is the judge? And to what stan- dard is this claim held to? Is there a control group for such a statement, and what brand are they using to uphold the claim that this one "removes more"? With that claim, is there a chief inspector, and what are his/her credentials. How does one give credibility to this study, and how long does one have to keep the test samples, should there be a dispute over removal superiority?
Really, wouldn't you agree that this packaging raises more questions than it answers?
