    I think the movie Blazing Saddles should be played on every TV station every cable station and  every social media site  non stop  24/7 for 5 days. What say you?

    This would just mean that I wouldn't watch TV, or use social media for 5 days....Which isn't a bad thing.


    Though what would the purpose of the exercise be?

    To eat more, or less beans, and less bans is not good, because beans is the one food all centenarians have in common.

    ..."Many of the longest-living populations in the world are lovers of legumes (more commonly known as beans). The people of Okinawa, Japan, who have the highest percentage of centenarians on earth, eat a diet rich in soybean-based products like tofu."...


    ...The researchers found that legumes were the most important dietary predictor of survival among the elderly, “regardless of their ethnicity,” they wrote.* For every 20-gram increase in daily legume intake (20 grams is about three-quarters of an ounce), “there is a 7 to 8% reduction in mortality hazard ratio.”.......

    I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess you have never seen the movie?

    Saw it and enjoyed it, probably 40 years ago....Perhaps it's worth another look, but definitely not 24/7 for 5 days.

    Well, there's a coincidence......I had cannellini beans yesterday and broad beans and cannellini beans this evening....I'm a beans fan.

    Thanks for the info.

    And here's to the next forty years.

    Humour has evolved.

    evolved?  nope, intolerance to anything offensive or could be offensive has killed humor.  I can see why you'd think that's evolution.

    Show us an example of "evolved humor" I'm really curious as to what that is. I may have seen it, didn't know it was evolved humor and didn't laugh because I need to be trained in what is funny in this new "evolved humor."

    Do you not think that a modern stand up comics material is different to what would have made us laugh 40 years ago....Though I would suggest that this reflects a general change in social expectation. 

    I would further suggest that what we might regard as timeless humour, is perhaps as much to do with nostalgia as it is to do with humour.....In so much as it makes us smile rather than makes us laugh.
