Default Monty's excellent comeback, plus a bonus word list

"The fatter the flea the leaner the dog." Proverb

Very eeewwww

Comma after "flea". And what is the higher lesson in this proverb?

montyb on July 24th, 2015
That fleas are too busy with their ectoparasitic ways to punctuate properly?

SwampySox on February 29th, 2016
They sucked it right out of the quote.

I'll take "4-letter words that end in A" for 1000, Alex

LLapp on October 26th, 2017
4-letter words that end in A? Gosh, after "flea," I have no idea.

Default Llapp makes this tread for me.

I am nyctalopic, myopic and presbyopic.

wvwoman on October 22nd, 2012
ahh, the 'over 40' condition!

montyb on December 24th, 2012
Welcome to the club, Bansai. Except, instead of nyctalopia, I am chromatically challenged.

Everyone's a geezer on this site geez.

I swear, it happens on your fortieth birthday.

LLapp on September 15th, 2017
I was 42. I remember it vividly: the optometrist at Lenscrafters was going on and on in the little dark room about my "two precriptions" and I said, "Why do you keep saying TWO prescriptions?" and then she used the foreign word "presbyopia" and mentioned near vision and far vision, and that's when I shouted "Wait . . . are you tellin' me I need BIFOCALS?!" and she said "I'm . . . I'm so sorry." I went back out to the store, where my two children were having fun trying on frames, and told them "Hey! Guess what I need! It starts with a B." My son said, "Uh....boxer shorts?" I said "It starts with a B and it ends in an old age home!" "Okay, I'm guessing bifocals," he said. "RIGHT," I barked. He laughed. Now he's 34 and balding. Hah.

At around age 48, I needed to start dying my hair to cover the gray and wearing cheaters to read small, blurry letters.

marnita on January 7th, 2018
40, yep, that sounds about right. The good news is that my eyes haven't gotten much worse since then (I''m pushing 75). Except for the incipient cataracts, of course.

My first pair of glasses were trifocals. Talk about a hard adjustment.

Default Of passwords and toothbrushes

"Treat your password like your toothbrush. Don't let anybody else use it, and get a new one every six months."
Clifford Stoll

Scorpion451 on January 9th, 2014
excellent advice.

oddcouple on April 25th, 2015
But then you got another one to try to remember. I have about 20 different password and I can't remember half.

montyb on July 12th, 2015
But I bet you know where your toothbrush is, oddcouple.

abra on April 8th, 2016
Years ago, I saw Clifford Stoll on one of the morning news shows, probably GMA, after he had tracked down a KGB hacker. He seems WAY hyper, but he's a really interesting person.

oddcouple on March 28th, 2017
Yes, monty. I know where my toothbrush is. But I only have to keep track of one.

LLapp on April 18th, 2017
And when you go to the store and buy the exact same kind of toothbrush, nobody stops you and says you can't pick the same toothbrush as you did for the last six toothbrushes.

tgreen517 on August 13th, 2017
Maybe you should write your password on your toothbrush!

marnita on February 14th, 2018
So far nobody has tried to hack my toothbrush.

SippyGurl on September 27th, 2018
lol tgreen! awesome
