You can take my wife and kids, but don't take my floppy drive. It has sentimental value.

I bought some shoes from a drug dealer. I don’t know what he laced them with, but I’ve been tripping all day.

I think that all right-thinking people in this country are sick and tired of being told that ordinary, decent people are fed up in this country with being sick and tired. I’m certainly not, and I’m sick and tired of being told that I am.

My company just completed a hardware project to replace the worn-out 8" floppy drives that are still in place on one of the B-52 flight trainers here at Barksdale AFB. I was astounded to learn that someone still makes those drives and replacement parts.

We suggested that the Air Force replace those drives with something more modern (this particular trainer was built in the mid-60s), but they said they expect to declare the trainer obsolete in a few years, and they'll replace the whole thing then.

The B-52H is slated to remain in the Air Force inventory until the year 2040 (!), at which point the youngest of those airframes in service will be approximately 80 years old.
