More bars in more places: How do you spell 'Wisconsin?'


The Blatz Beer (long defunct) commercial: "I'm from Milwaukee, and I ought to know/It's draft-brewed Blatz Beer, wherever you go/Smoother, fresher, less filling that's clear/Blatz is Milwaukee's finest beer."

I heard that jingle so many thousands of times growing up in Milwaukee, it'll probably be the last thing I remember when my mind goes.

"When, joe?"

Go away.

BehindTheMedspeak: 'I'll sleep when I'm dead'


According to WebMD, "Since newborns do not yet have an internal biological clock or circadian rhythm, their sleep patterns are not related to daylight and nighttime cycles. In fact, they tend to not have much of a pattern at all."

World's cheapest talking watch


Amazing, how technology has driven down the price of something like this.

From the website:


Pleasant, easy-to-listen-to voice in a neat looking black plastic case with differently shaped buttons for each function, making it easy to set.

You can set an alarm (beep or cuckoo) and have the time announced every hour.

The face measures 1.5" in diameter and has all setting functions on its front.

Matching black plastic band with buckle can adjust to fit a very small to a large-sized wrist.
