    This is a messing around thread. It can wander anywhere. All are welcome. It is Level 2 of the Other Thread.

    There is still:

    "I remember the good old days around here, just thought I'd see if there is anything left."

    Rampant quotes.

    Rampant YouTube.

    Rampant nonsense.

    Rampant https://hubpages.com/community/forum/14 … ost2909333

    Basically your messing round, complaining, bragging, observing, contemplating thread.

    You never know what you toss out there that might really help someone.

      It's bin day today. Got the recycling bins out and the organic waste bin. The recycling bin company takes cardboard, paper, glass, cans, plastic containers,batteries,etc. The two organic waste bins are full of hedge and grass cuttings.

    Regarding the link, I've given up on flash fiction as a moneymaker. I've got over 50 of them. Thus, I am going to start throwing them away on FB and here.

    Home Depot has ATM’s. I did not know that. I decided I needed $40. I put in my card and made the request. The ATM informed me in effect, “Sorry, dude. Am offline.”

    I really needed that $40.

    Home Depot has sledgehammers. That I did know. I went and got one.

    I once again properly addressed the ATM. Once again, no joy. Home Depot could no longer sell the sledgehammer as new. Sorry about that.

    As for the ATM and money scattered all over the floor, I really did feel bad. But I really needed that $40. I even left a note on what was left of the ATM so they could deduct it from my account.

    I went about my business...

    While standing in the checkout line 15 minutes later, two nice police officers showed up.

    “Hi,” said I.

    “You’re under arrest,” said they.

    The cot was quite comfy. But alas, they took my $40.

    Hubpages was GREAT once upon a time. I rarely write articles these days because it's no longer fun/engaging/profitable/etc. EXAMPLE: I'm an art historian / writer LIVING in Florence, Italy. I've been researching the Medici family for over 10 years. I wrote an interesting article about a famous gown that belonged to Eleonora di Toledo (propaganda fashion). It was featured in a local newspaper (Florence News) and praised by my colleagues. Hubpages refuses to feature the article. YET....they will publish and feature the most useless, stupid, opinion based crap.

      They are refusing to feature it because you haven't kept up with the latest rules, that's all.  You've featured two books on Amazon without giving a review of them, and it's obvious the second one is written by you (which counts as self promotion).  Your layout would look bad on a mobile phone, too.

    A lawyer, who had a wife and 12 children,  needed to move because his rental agreement was terminated by the owner who wanted to reoccupy the home.

    But he was having a lot of difficulty finding a new house.

    When he said, he had 12 children, no one would rent a home to him because they felt that the children would destroy the place.  He couldn't say he had no children, because he couldn't lie, we all know lawyers cannot and do not lie.

    So, he sent his wife for a walk to the cemetery with 11 of their kids. He took the remaining one with him to see rental homes with the real estate agent.  He loved one of the homes and the price was right -- the agent asked: "How many children do you have?

    He answered: "Twelve."

    The agent asked, "Where are the others?"

    The lawyer, with his best courtroom sad look answered
    "They're in the cemetery with their mother."

    MORAL: It's not necessary to lie, one only has to choose the right words.

    This thread needs to address the mundane.
