Today I learnt that you can burn things to charcoal in a microwave. In fact there were very nearly flames.

I set sweet potato crisps alight. Or was it aubergine?
All I know is they ignited in the time it took me to cross my little kitchen in Leicester.

That was under the grill though.

Today I learned that stern, tough guys aren't always quite so tough. Keep in mind, this is a 70 yo, high-school math teacher, Vietnam War veteran, no children, never married:

Yes, I've set things into flames in the microwave before. You know what else can burn things to charcoal? A toaster oven...well, a convection oven. Yups. I was baking a tray of taco shells and had forgotten about it. Became charcoal....black, crisp piles that emitted such black smoke that the entire inside of of the oven was covered a thick black layer of it. I was lucky that I didn't burn my place down.

I love babies.

I used to volunteer at children's hospital, and I spelled parents too, but not with infants. Man, that looks like a prime assignment.

Today I learned that a "lightly loaded" Boeing 777 is quicker than a lot of 'sports' cars.

0-60 mph in less than 6 seconds!

FYI - A 777-200 (the lightest (!) version) weighs 297,000 lbs - empty.

Today I learned that I am politically impartial.

It was budget day and I slept through most of the Chancellor of the Exchequer's speech and that of the leader of Her Majesty's loyal opposition.

You know Bruce, you might just have a point there.

Today I learned that if you eat Swiss cheese then drink orange juice the resulting taste is reminiscent of vomit

How to solve a x^2 + b x + c = 0 for x.

And not to invest in the Beer Ice Cream float truck.
