Family and I are sitting around, watching Animal Planet and they've got a show on B-movie monsters. Tonight, the Killer Shrews...

and I recognize the lead charcter/hero of the movie...

... it was easy, as he was wearing his sheriff's deputy uniform...

"Hey, baby, that's Roscoe P. Coltrane!"

"Who?"

"The sheriff from The Dukes of Hazard"

Wife just looks at me. That look that says if I replaced half the useless crap in my brain with stuff that actually matters, I'd be a gazzillionaire.

What was the epiphany for you?

I realized it when I was in College and could bring up conversations from 3-4 years ago as if they happened yesterday. Sadly having a kid has broken that ability for me.

Once a week at work, my boss (whom I've been friends with for over 20 years) will get into some protracted conversation about, well .... nothing usually. This will last anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes. At some point in that conversation, he will look at me and utter these words ...

"You are a bastion of worthless information."

It's been happening to me for years so to ask me when it started would be like looking for the proverbial needle in the hay stack.

I've only recently come to the conclusion that I don't know shit.

The epiphany came for me when I read this post and thought;

Dude, his name is James Best.

For some reason, I have never been able to shake the knowledge that Jack Barron and Florence Bush were the wardrobe and hair people on the old Leave It to Beaver show. They were the last two names to roll on the credits, and for some reason they stuck into my brain.

Same here. The name popped into my head instantly. And I hated that f#cking show. :shake:

I am a varitable fountain of useless information. I am vicious at trivia games, especially when it comes to movies or history. I always tell people "you want me on your team." Those who listen win.

I don't know about useless information, but my boss is amazed at my memory. I could tell you all of our prep numbers for a week, who was absent on what day and why, etc. I may forget what I go into a room for, but I remember od little details.

Oh, and Simplex, I had that problem again with the IP address. I tried the ipconfig /renew, but it said it couldn't be done due to someone else using the address on the DHCP or whatever initials those are. I guess I'll have to email the office AGAIN.

Dude, I have kids that are 8, 7 & 4. What kind of dumbshit watches porn with their kids? Believe it or not, some of the folks on the board are adults by act & action, not just because they're 18.

And I don't let my kids watch the Simpsons.

But, c'mon, don't you want to read the bio for Tiger Fafarra?

Memory and knowledge are interesting. I'm a fountain of worthless information about the world we live in, history, etc. My wife probably couldn't name who the President was before Clinton, but she could tell me where EACH AND EVERY article of clothing that we and our two boys own was bought, how much they all cost, approximately when they were purchased etc. She can identify, off the top of her head, every gift ever given to us, when it was given, and by whom.

I can barely remember what I got my last birthday...

I know tiger panzer tanks got 1 and 1/2 miles a gallon.That is some random useless information if I've ever came across it.

I think the major clue that you know too much useless crap comes when you think about making at thread about it on a BB.

They burned diesel didn't they?

Ideally, I'm sure it was diesel. I remember reading that tanks are usually designed to burn just about anything that's combustible -- any kind of gas at all. I can't remember if that was WWII era, nowadays, or just a general comment.

I know that M1A1 Abrams is even worse than the old Tiger. I think it's something like 2 gallons per mile estimated combat average (not miles per gallon, but gallons per mile!). That's not highway speed, mind you, but damn...
