Random Thoughts: Corn, Indians, and Money

Posted on February 19, 2013 9:27 am

Since we’re still singing about it hundreds of years later, isn’t time to finally admit we care just a little bit that Jimmy cracked corn?

It’s an indication of how much political correctness has invaded my psyche that I find myself hesitating to call people in India “Indians.”

When money is in the marketplace it grows and reproduces. When kept in the captivity of government, it dies.

Be vary wary of anyone who acts certain how history will turn out.

Went to Boise Fry Company. Have new favorite “Idaho” restaurant to take out-of-towners to.

    Dang it, Jimmy! You cracked it – now you pay to have it fixed!

    I’m sure that when the history books are written these people will be proven wrong.

    Assuming they aren’t just an overconfident false intelectual, this is a good sign that they may actually be a dangerous time traveler. And it’s common knowledge that getting involved in time travel shenanigans is absolutely horrible for your health. The mortality rate for extras on Dr. Who is rapidly approaching red shirt territory.

  4. Jimmy says:

    Well, DamnCat, if you want corn pone you have to crack the corn first.

  5. Sue says:

    “Vary wary??” Is that how it’s said? Is it literal as in: one should vary his/her wary? Or does it mean to increase your ordinary wary like if you said “very wary.”

  6. Harvey says:

    @5 – In my head, I hear it in Chekov’s accent: “wery wary”.

  7. Jimmy says:

    Sue, there’s a 50% probability that “vary wary” will automatically transform itself in the future to “very wary.”

  10. DamnCat says:

    As a rule-of-thumb, I try to stay within one standard deviation of wary.

  11. Harvey says:

    Normally I’d just go in an fix Frank’s typo, but you guys are already having too much fun with this.

    Carry on…

  12. Jimmy says:

    But there’s still a 25% probability – in the future – that Frank will get tricky and fix it.

    Have to share this link for its incredible pictures:

    Coldest village in the world just got even COLDER (-71C – world record for inhabited place)

    Darn. Winter isn’t over yet.

    Especially, when they have no understanding of world history. Coincidentally, the same people claim to be experts in global science, yet have no understanding of that, either.

  15. Bunkerhillbilly says:

    vary wary?

    Varied waries? Various wariouses? Your waries may vary?

    And what of the slythy troves, yon Jabberwock?

    ….Only until they re-write those history books, too.

    Recently I attended a lecture about ancient Egypt. When the lector mentioned the Nubian kings who ruled over Egypt around 700 BC, she called them “African-Americans”.

  18. burt says:

    I understand the hesitation of calling those folks from India Indians. Since they are residents of the Asian Subcontinent, perhaps we should refer to them as Subasians…or does that sound too much like a cyst?

  19. Hambo says:

    Here in the Free State of PIG, we never use ‘indians’, and we sneer at ‘Native Americans’

    We follow Burt’s line of thinking and use Siberian-Americans.

    SIBERIAN-AMERICANS, n.
    The 3rd or 4th wave of pre-Columbian, New World immigrants, they crossed into North America from Siberia about 11,000 years ago, then pretended they were “always” here by calling themselves “Native Americans”. (See also: Indians)

    SubcontinAsians? SubcontinAsiaticals?

    Ganeshomaniacs? Shivaphiles?

    @19: 11,000 years is so 1950′s. Now, it’s closer to 30,000 years and also ice age Europeans, and later, the Welsh, Vikings, Polynesians and Japanese also came to the America’s before Columbus.

  22. Hambo says:

    @21; 11,000…30,000 So be it. Call me a low information anthropologist.

    “ice age Europeans, and later, the Welsh, Vikings, Polynesians and Japanese also came to the America’s before Columbus.”

    As far as I know, none of THEM got full of themselves and it, by invoking the erroneous term NATIVE-Americans.

  23. Jimmy says:

    Agreed. But it’s their “culture,” Hambo. ;-)
