A man with a wooden leg wanted to buy fire insurance for his leg. The first actuary quoted an annual premium of $500, estimating that the leg would burn once in 20 years and the value of the leg is $5,000. The second actuary quoted an annual premium of $50. When the second actuary was asked how he arrived at such a small figure, he replied, “This situation is right here in the fire schedule rating table.
The object is a wooden structure with an upper sprinkler, isn’t it?” 😁😎

Friday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “People all say that I’ve had a bad break. But today…today, I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the Earth.”
Thursday’s Quizzler is….
I’m late, I’m late was frequently sounded.I’m not average, but was based on a mean.
My size, in theory, is constant: fifteen.I’m two dozen steps, again in theory.
But walk my length and you’d get weary.
I take half and quarter steps at times.
In reality, I don’t follow the lines.
I shrink to nothing in two cold extremes.
Over a thousand miles wide in the betweens.
What am I?
Answer: Time zones.
Before the invention of standard time zones, each city or region could have its own local time. This became increasingly awkward as railways and telecommunications improved. Originally, time zones based their time on Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). Mean solar time is defined by the rotation of the Earth, which is not constant in rate. Starting January 1, 1972, a new system was used, Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), which used a fixed rate and added leap seconds when necessary to compensate for variations in the rotation of the Earth.
In theory, there are 24 time zones, making each a constant 15 degrees of longitude apart. A time zone varies in width from zero miles at both poles to over 1000 miles at the equator. In reality, there are about 40 time zones, and the border between time zones is irregular, following political or geographical boundaries. The island of Newfoundland, India, and parts of Australia use half-hour deviations from standard time, and some nations use quarter-hour deviations. Canada’s Sir Sandford Fleming first proposed time zones for the entire world in 1876. Most major countries had adopted hourly time zones by 1929.
