23. There's a front page article on the Frsno Bee today

It details the flagging efforts of Occupy Fresno. I was sad to read this, but it's amazing that they've held out this long in this blood read part of California.

42. Original cokes in glass bottles were SIX ounces

and cost 5-cents...

Soft drinks served at lunch counters were probably no more than 8 oz..no free refills.

2.5 oz (71 g) "flavoring," i.e., "Merchandise 7X"
30 lb (14 kg) sugar
4 US fl oz (118.3 ml) fluid extract of coca leaves (flavor essence of the coca leaf).
2.5 US gal (9.5 l; 2.1 imp gal) water
caramel sufficient to give color
"Mix caffeine acid and lime juice in 1 quart boiling water add vanilla and flavoring when cool."
Flavoring (Merchandise 7X):
1 qrt alcohol
80 oil orange
40 oil cinnamon
120 oil lemon
20 oil coriander
40 oil nutmeg
40 oil neroli
"Let stand 24 hours."

43. Will you guys PLEASE STOP FUCKING AROUND AND GET ON STAGE ALREADY?!?

God dammit.......we send you down there with specific instructions and what do you do? Collect swag and sit in the hallways playing Angry Birds on your laptop.

For fucks sake.


When you get up there, I expect a Monty Python reference, as well as a plug for public breastfeeding, the Olive Garden, circumcision, the Unrec feature, Pit Bulls, how much Democrats like guns and driving in the left lane.


Now....stop your poncing about AND GET ON WITH IT.
