WELCOME to WEDNESDAY JANUARY 25, 2023
Business one-liners 05
A memorandum is written not to inform the reader, but to protect the writer.
A pat on the back is only a few inches from a kick in the pants.
A pipe gives a wise man time to think and a fool something to put in his mouth.
A penny saved has not been spent.
A penny saved is an economic breakthrough.
A penny saved is ridiculous.
A problem cannot be solved using the same level of thinking that created it.
(In other words, if you screw it up, you can’t fix it.)
A real person has two reasons for doing anything…a good reason and the real reason.
A short cut is the longest distance between two points.
A short line outside a building becomes a long line inside.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY people, stay safe, and
whatever you do, don’t forget to laff it up! Peace, I am outta here! Eucman! 😁
q u o t e s o f t h e d a y
“Life is a daring adventure or it is nothing at all.”
“Success isn’t determined by how many times you win,
but by how you play the week after you lose.”
“Ignore your mistakes. The number one thing to worry
about is: Am I doing what I’m good at?”
— Max Levchin
“Intuitively, you would think the more fairness you get, the better. But that’s not what we demonstrated.
It’s better if supervisors are a consistent jerk than if they’re fair sometimes and not fair other times.
People want to know what they can expect when they come into work.”
“Opportunities don’t happen. You create them.”
“Nothing will work unless you do.”
“If you want to change the world, start off by making your bed.”
–Admiral William McRaven
“Russia is a tough, cold place, so Russians grab at happiness with both hands.
There’s also a hint of suffering involved,” she adds, “the idea that you will suffer for your pleasure.”
“Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are a good person is a little like
expecting the bull not to attack you because you are a vegetarian.”
— Dennis Wholey
Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
A woman walked up to a little old man rocking in a chair on his porch.
“I couldn’t help noticing how happy you look,” she said. “What’s your secret for a long happy life?”
“I smoke three packs of cigarettes a day,” he said. “I also drink a case of whiskey a week,
eat fatty foods, and never exercise.”
“That’s amazing,” the woman said. “How old are you?’
“Twenty-six,” he said. 😳😳😳
Tuesday’s’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“He’s a man from outer space and we’re taking him to his spaceship.”
“Well, can’t he just beam up?”
“This is reality Greg.”
Answer: ET: the Extra-Terrestrial!
Left behind when his ship became threatened, ET is lucky that he has Elliott to look after him. Unfortunately lots of people are looking for ET, who is wasting away because of his enforced separation from his own kind. When his ship returns to retrieve him, Elliott enlists the help of friends to get ET past all the men in the space suits. This quote occurs near the end of the movie, when Elliott is introducing ET to his brother’s friends, just before they take off on their bikes.
Wednesday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from???
“You see their young enter through the ears and wrap themselves around the cerebral cortex.
This has the effect of rendering the victim extremely susceptible to suggestion.
Later, as they grow, follows madness and death.”
Tuesday’s Quizzler is….
This is another in my series of rhyming word ladders. This one is a little more challenging than the
others — most people will probably have to work forwards and backwards to get all ten words.
(At least, that was the goal when making the puzzle.)
Find all ten words referenced in this bit of verse.
The first one is a giant ship,
though it never saw a port.
Prepend one letter onto that
to make a covering, of a sort.
Replace the final letter:
a place that beasts might bed.
Swap middle two, insert an I
to find what’s in your head!
Change B to G and then you’ll make
something from a farm.
Move first to last, insert a K:
a workout for your arm.
Add C and C, and then you’ll see
what walnuts fear from you.
Drop A-C-K and add an E:
what a fearful one might do.
Dump outer two, move last to first,
and have a little smile.
Delete the R and then you’ll make
a beverage some find vile.
ANSWER: ARK: The giant ship
BARK: Covering (of a tree)
BARN: A place that beasts might bed
BRAIN: What’s in your head
GRAIN: Something from a farm
RAKING: A workout for your arm
CRACKING: Walnuts fear this
CRINGE: What a fearful person does
GRIN: A little smile
GIN: A beverage — which isn’t vile at all!
