    I'll be sure to pull the other one next time. In the meanwhile, just wear a very think sock on one foot.

    Gotta admit, I only watch the show, "American Pickers" because of Danielle. Frank's ok. Seems to be a no nonsense guy. Mike, on the other hand, talks too much. He just rattles on and on. Take, for example, when he makes a terrific find (in his mind). He'll hold up the rusty remains of some ancient motorcycle part, then try to convince we viewers that, "someone out there wants this piece. Someone will build a whole motorcycle around this very piece. I gotta have it" B S overload.
    I would love it if mike stayed in the shop and frank and Danielle did all the picking.

    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.:)

    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. :)

    @Gary Ridenour. Yeah, now they are hilarious but very scary when I was younger. I have always been drawn to science fiction especially movies. The imagination and creativity that goes into producing these movies astounds me.

    Old movies on TV, from the 30's and 40's, taught me the proper way for the driver of a car to exit the car, is to slide across the seat and exit on the passenger side.
    I also learned that when you go in or out of a room or a house, or sometimes even a car, you leave the door open. One of my sons learned that lesson well. He was staying in my apartment awhile after he got out of the army. I would come home from work in the morning to find him gone, but every cabinet door and drawer open. That irritated me something fierce.
    And all detectives are drunken slobs.
    The hero detective or cop is always in trouble with the chief.
    Still, the older movies are entertaining.:)

    @Ike Willis
    Really made me laugh there - you forgot the coffee, always something wrong with the coffee :p
    Movies today are more irritating I'd say - they always walk 'quick' down corridors
    The cop falls for the murderess :p
    He usually has an alcohol problem
    The chief usually says - I'm taking you off this case, you're too close to it :D

    The worst thing about the older movies was the music running through
