Dates and Numbers

(...or, Fixing the English Language, #1 in a Series)

The days of the week should be:

Twoday - the only one that's sort of (tuesday) right
Fryday - that's when the ad comes out, woo hoo!

Ten should not be "ten", it should be onety. Just like sixty, seventy, eighty and ninety.

onety, twoty, threety, fourty, fivety...

Just so you know, there is a better way.

"Ocean's Onety-one"
"I'll give you twoty-three dollars for that"
"Fivety is the new threety"

- Onety-four -

The decimal system be damned!

I'm for the martinecimal sysyem.

Every now and then when your life gets complicated and the weasels start closing in, the only cure is to load up on heinous chemicals and then drive like a bastard from Hollywood to Las Vegas ... with the music at top volume and at least a pint of ether.

-Hunter S. Thompson

Dedicated to the other side of Las Vegas, namely; the sprawling, mad, incoherent underpinnings of the world's favorite destination.

That, and the occasional ranting about nothing in particular.
