All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!


You're It

This post is nothing more than a pointer to a cute story which will waste maybe 5 min of your employers time.
Mr. Dennehy and nine of his friends have spent the past 23 years locked in a game of "Tag."
It started in high school when they spent their morning break darting around the campus of Gonzaga Preparatory School in Spokane, Wash. Then they moved on—to college, careers, families and new cities. But because of a reunion, a contract and someone's unusual idea to stay in touch, tag keeps pulling them closer. Much closer.
The game they play is fundamentally the same as the schoolyard version: One player is "It" until he tags someone else. But men in their 40s can't easily chase each other around the playground, at least not without making people nervous, so this tag has a twist. There are no geographic restrictions and the game is live for the entire month of February. The last guy tagged stays "It" for the year.
That's right, these 9 guys waste tons of time and money paying a grown up game of tag one month a year.  You only waste time reading blogs at work.  See what you could achieve with a little effort?

    Seems to me that I recall someone challenging somebody else to a friendly game of paintball King Of The Mountain out in the wilds of Wyoming, once upon a time....

    Doesn't seem too much different than that, on the face of it.
