    Well Chrissy, That means you will be able to walk around a hillside without limping.

    No, that's a very old term that is a combination of "perspire" and "burp" - basically, a moist passage of verbal gas. The spelling changed over the years from "purp" to "perp".

    I also wonder what the item will really sell for!!!! They always say "I am going to ask $$" but never reveal if they actually sold it for more..

    Did you know, they had window air conditioners back in the wild west? I watched Gary Cooper in the movie "High Noon". In the final gunfight scene, Cooper was dodging around and between buildings. There, for a brief second, was what looked like a window air conditioner jutting out of a second story window.:)

    I learned that they jack up the volume level, during the commercials!

    Everyone must have seen the electrical wire running up the side of a building and into a second floor window in the opening scene of "Wagon Train". Maybe that's for the air conditioner.o_O

    This might sound dopey, but when I was a kid I liked to watch soap operas, and what I learned was virtually every problem- from minor to very serious- was almost always caused by basic, simple misunderstandings. A person would overhear a comment but not the entire conversation, or see something and take it out of context, etc. And it does seem that's often true IRL, too.

    One should always place a lace doily under the rabbit ears.

    I've learnt many things from TV, given us good ideas, learnt so much about nature
    And once I saw meself in a character portrayed and thought, Oh no :eek: - I need to change my perception - and I did :p

    Hmmm, if I remembered all the things I learned on TV I would probably be much smarter. One thing I learned was in making kale chips to put them in a small plastic bag with olive oil and squeeze so the oil gets thoroughly in the kale. That would be one thing. I learn things, on TV all the time, I just don't remember 1/10 of them.

    I've learned on TV for a long time that there is always a 'Johnny' character somewhere. I've also learned that the title of the movie is 9x out of 10 mentioned in the script. I've also learned that television is for entertainment and you can change the station or turn it off whenever you like. :)
