Mel Brooks is a genius. He manages to make fun of as many racist stereotypes as is humanly possible. The best part about Blazing Saddles is that you can catch some "new" thing you missed the last hundred times you watched it with every new viewing.

I had the pleasure of meeting Charles MacGregor (the bald black guy who was the Sheriff's sidekick on the railroad crew) when I was in high school and he was touring the country counseling kids on the dangers of drugs and alcohol.

No wonder I didn't get it. I haven't seen that movie in 25 years. I'm due.

When someone posts a post such as that, it is clear what is going through his mind. I certainly didn't want a clearer picture of what he meant. It took me a bit to get over my anger after reading that post.

Being away on the boat probably reminds them of some very difficult times in the military. I'm sure they also wanted to go home but couldn't while in the military. I'll be it just conjures up a lot of very bad memories and having the choice to get off the boat and go home is just a good option for them. I agree it's not for everyone.

I was working in a movie theater when the movie came out. My girlfriend ran the candy counter and I was the usher. We watched that movie about 150 times. Got to where anyone could quote any line. Either of us could start from that line and we'd continue the scene until people got tired of hearing us.

Since that time, I've paid to see the movie about 20 times, bought it on VHS (replaced tape half a dozen times), and finally got it on DVD.

Anybody have a thought on how long to let a blister go without popping it?

I burned the tip of my finger about a week ago on a hot weedeater exhaust. I normally pop a blister right after the sting subsides, but I've avoided it with this one because it's right on the pad of the tip of my finger.

Just leave it alone and let it pop on its own no matter how long it takes, or what? That's kinda what I'm thinking for this one. If it were on the side of my hand like the last time I burned it, I would have already popped it, but I kinda feel like the blister is doing some good in protecting that new skin in this case. It was a pretty good burn. Smelled and sounded like bacon.

I've always heard that it's better to pop them after dark. Not sure if this actually does anything, but it's worth a try.

That's probably just because once you go to bed and fall asleep, you won't be doing things like turning wrenches or cutting grass to aggravate it. Makes sense though.

I may pop it tonight, but this is worse than when the sweet potato exploded on me, and THAT left a gaping hole in my pinky. Got infected really bad, and I was starting to get worried I'd have to amputate it.
