On the drug thing... Just took our annual substance abuse training at work.

Carfentanil (synth opiad family) is 10,000 times stronger than morphine.

I missed that on test... I didn't think it was that much stronger!

Interesting.    No wonder so many people are moving south.

 

Did you know that there are more cows in Wyoming County than there are people?

 

There is something like 53,000 cows and around 41,000 people - and that's not counting the people who should be counted as cows.

Steve McQueen auditioned for the role of the Priest on The Exorcist. But after the audition the director and writer realized McQueen's presence would just scare off the Devil.

I could see that being advantageous, making him harder to pin.  Plus, he can put on more muscle mass for his weight class, since he's less one leg's weight.

fire ants are nasty little things.  I had the displeasure of dealing with them when I lived in FLA.

Watson couldn't distinguish between polite language and profanity -- which the Urban Dictionary is full of. Watson picked up some bad habits from reading Wikipedia as well. In tests it even used the word "bull ****" in an answer to a researcher's query.

 

:lol:  I'm surprised they deleted it.  That's as close to passing a Turing Test as I've ever heard.
