joke of the day
Dear Abby,
I've never written to you before, but I really need your advice. I have suspected for some time now that my wife has been cheating on me. The usual signs. Phone rings but if I answer, the caller hangs up. My wife has been going out with "the girls" a lot recently although when I ask their names she always says, "Just some friends from work, you don't know them."
I always try to stay awake to look out for her coming home, but I usually fall asleep. Anyway, I have never approached the subject with my wife. I think deep down I just didn't want to know the truth, but last night she went out again and I decided to really check on her. Around midnight, I decided to hide in the garage behind my golf clubs so I could get a good view of the whole street when she arrived home from a night out with "the girls".
It was at that moment, crouching behind my clubs, that I noticed that the graphite shaft on my driver appeared to have a hairline crack right by the club head.
Is this something I can fix myself or should I take it back to the pro shop where I bought it?
Signed,
Perplexed

Video: Scene from "The Thing" (1982), starring Kurt Russell, the #34 best cult-classic movie of all time
A research team in Antarctica is hunted by a shape-shifting alien that assumes the appearance of its victims.
This is another one of those films that I remember staying up late to watch on TV, scaring the crap out of myself at the impressionable age of 12 or so and dooming myself thereafter to a life of horror movie obsession. This is a GREAT movie, and stands as living proof that there were indeed realistic effects before computer-generated imagery.

Mongo's history lesson: On this day in history, May 22, 1968, the nuclear-powered submarine USS Scorpion sinks with 99 men aboard, and 2 nuclear-tipped torpedos, 400 miles southwest of the Azores.

Scorpion was lost with all hands on 22 May 1968. She is one of two nuclear submarines the U.S. Navy has lost, the other being USS Thresher. The wreck lies at a depth of 9,800 ft about 400 miles southwest of the Azores on the eastern edge of the Sargasso Sea.
The U.S. Navy periodically revisits the site to determine whether wreckage has been disturbed and to test for the release of any fissile materials from the submarine's nuclear reactor or the two nuclear torpedos. Except for a few photographs taken by deep-water submersibles in 1968 and 1985, the U.S. Navy has never made public any physical surveys it has conducted on the wreck. The results of the U.S. Navy's various investigations into the loss of Scorpion are inconclusive.
