Back on January 9th, a group of bikers from Nevada were riding across Hoover Dam on their way to Rocky Point when they saw a girl about to jump off the dam. So they stopped. George, their leader, a big burly man of 53, gets off his Harley, walks through a group of gawkers, past the State Trooper who was trying to talk her down off the dam and says: “Hey baby…..whatcha doin’ up there on that dam?” She says tearfully, “I’m going to commit suicide!!” While he didn’t want to appear ‘sensitive’ in front of his gang, George also didn’t want to miss this ‘be-a-legend’ opportunity either so he asked… “Well, before you jump, Honey baby…why don’t you give ole George here your best last kiss?”
So, with no hesitation at all, she leaned back over behind her and did just that… and it was a long, deep, lingering kiss followed immediately by another even better one. After they breathlessly finished, George gets a big thumbs-up approval from his biker-buddies, the onlookers, and even the State Trooper, and then he says: “Wow! That was the best kiss I have ever had, Honey! That’s a real talent you’re wasting, Sweetie. You could be famous if you rode with me. Why the hell are you committing suicide?”
“My parents don’t like me dressing up like a girl.”
It’s still unclear whether she jumped or was pushed.
When the 4 Goldberg brothers invented the automobile air conditioner they introduced themselves to Henry Ford, the father of the assembly line, they introduced themselves as Lowell, Norman, Himan and Maxwell Goldberg.
Mr. Ford was so impressed with this invention he offered the brothers 4 million dollars for the patent.
One million for each. The brothers accepted his offer with one condition.
They wanted the notoriety for their invention, not just the riches.
Henry told them that putting Goldberg in print on the dashboards of his Fords was never going to happen.
So they came up with a compromise. Every car that had AC would have the brothers’ names just above the AC switch.
Lo-Norm-Hi-Max. And it’s still used to this day. I bet you didn’t know that.
