When I first saw the headline, I thought "oh no, Jim what have you done now"? But I really enjoyed reading this, and I laughed my head off. Here is an example of Jim's great sense of humor. To premise this into context, when I was growing up I remember hearing that if a person masturbated, their hands would eventually fall off plus a bunch of other stuff. I wonder if this is still a belief?

Ohh...........and I was hoping for a good discussion. How very unfortunate that two of our most active posters have had to pull out. Well, then, okay.... I'll just have to keep things going for a while on my end.

My entire post was a reply in that direction :D .

Well, when I was growing up, this was given as a serious warning..and who really knew any difference. And I wasn't in high school until later on in the 60's. I can't remember it being taught in school, it was something we all would hear through the grapevine. And finally when I did get into high school, it was something to giggle over. Such innocence back then. I would think this wouldn't at all be taken seriously today, people are more hip and not as easily fooled. But maybe not.

I've never seen that letter before! It was hysterical. You can definitely tell he was writing this to probably push the buttons of his teachers and get a reaction!

Our current situation in Boston with possible bombings during the marathon, this made my day!

I believe Jim got it from 'Mad' comics and he might appreciate the Colemanballs anthology of media slip-ups :-
........ Female newscaster who, the day after it was supposed to snow but hadn't, asked the weatherman: "So Bob, where's that eight inches you promised me last night?"

Or "The batsman's Holding the bowler's Willey......." where for the present audience I should explain the names in italics were famous cricketers of the day.

It does sound a bit like from Mad. Those media slip-ups were funny!!! lol! So this was a speech Jim made, he read it in front of a class!? I'd love to see the face of the teacher and the students. And I wonder was he allowed to read it all or was he interrupted by the teacher.

Which speech are you refering to mina that Jim read in front of a class, the first or the second... :lol: Now we can kind of imagne why Jim spend so much time in detention when he was in school, and I think it´s also a good example what a great sense of humor he had.

Thanks to you Texasky and Pedro Kazit!! I had to laugh so hard... And I´m glad you brought up the subject cause both are very serious problems that sould be discussed here. It seems even some people hers are affected by one or the other, or maybe both... :lol:
...He communicated with emotion, rage, grace, and wisdom. He offered very little in the way of compromise...

:) No, I don't have to think hard to know why Jim had many detentions.. To Texasky (arghh I still can't press enter here), yes, we still think hands will fall off, because we can get a sexually transmitted disease from masturbation.. (edit:oops, a break in thinking)

Mad was one of the most popular magazines to read during our youth. There are phrases who to this day I sometimes still use. Some of the best satire came from those very witty writers.

Thanks FB, that weather report is quite funny, still laughing as I read it.
