Andy Warhol once said "In the future, everybody will be fameous for 15 minutes". Where has (or will) your 15 minutes come from?

Ah, fame is so relative.

As a top student and a super Boy Scout in a small town in upstate Michigan, it seemed like I got my picture in the paper every few months. Third place in the state high school mathematics competition was the biggest deal, I think. I feel that Eagle Scout was more important. Both got a larger picture in the paper than other accomplishments.

As an adult, being one of the primary design authors of the SCSI standard is probably the biggest deal. Knowing that your work is incorporated in hundreds of designs by all of the major computer manufacturers in the world can be a real ego boost. When my job was being phased out, I let one of my buddies on the standards committee know and I had several companies calling me to discuss job opportunities. It may not have been wide fame, but it was important fame.

There's a dear little plant that grows in our Isle
Twas St . Patrick himself, sure, that set it;
And the sun of his labour with pleasure did smile,
And with dew from his eye often wet it.
It grows through the bog, through the brake, through the
Mireland, and they call it the dear little shamrock of Ireland.

In high school I was in Agriculture and one day I won second place in a regional tobacco judging competition (first of all what *$$hole$ teach kids how to judge TOBACCO???) and they took my picture, my buddy Dean won first place; I didn't know until 2 or 3 years ago that he was upset they put ME in the paper and not him(he could have it i'm not to fond at looking at my mug in the mirror letalone in our Tri-weekly rag) I also got in for raising sheep, dairy judging, and livestock presentation (both Dean and I got in on that one.) I'm figure that that was only about 8.5 minutes so I still agot a bit left in me. AND that was more than 10 years ago so 8.5 min with a 10% interest rate compounded annualy I figure I still got a good 20.04547881085 minutes of fame left more than enough to take over the world in a bloodless coup and then become really famous for burping the alphabet (which I don't know how to do so I better get busy learning) and then 120 years from now get a kickin' obit.

Well, remember what state we live in. Could be worse; in my high school, (about four decades ago) our science teacher spent a whole quarter teaching us the finer points of "fermentation and distillation" (making corn liquor) because we needed "something to fall back on". beer_mug.gif (He consumed all the "experiments", kept a beaker full on his desk all day)

Mine was limited to a group of doctors at Duke University Medical Center. In 1996 I was having a heart cath (few days later had by-pass surgery). The doctor doing the cath suddenly whistled and said, "Boy, you're hanging on by a thread, I don't understand why you're not dead." and proceeded to call other doctors in the cath lab over to have a look. The next day I overheard two doctors talking in the hall, one was saying, "Have you seen the pics on the guy whose heart...blah, blah." They were talking about me. I'm the guy "who should be dead". angel_not.gif

Winning what is just about the only poetry contest I've cared to enter (Ca 2000 in college). I've tried a couple since then, but they were more interested in getting money out of you. I really think you had to buy the book to have any real chance at winning. Not that I really expect to anyway. It'd be nice, but I enter such things to get an idea how well people like my material. If I don't find that answer, then there's no point in entering.

Three words: Drink Dr Pepper


I used to drink 3 to 5 20 oz. a day, I never really got burpy but the fountain drink always upset my stomach,but I did get a kidney stone for my reward, and a few weeks after I quit I bought one and actually won a free one (my first winner ever with a Dr. Pepper despite the fact that they say 1 out of 12 win) and then I went and got my free one and won another at the same store which makes me feel like they "load" winners for specific destinations probably larger market areas and this load was accidentally delivered to the country. Eather way I don't really drink Dr. Pepper that often anymore, I stick with beer. It is less dangerous to the body than high fructose corn syrup.

Odd you wouldn't have won before. I've won with moderate frequency. Didn't win any off of their last little game though. So... depending on what you consider larger market area...
There's a lot of money in the Lexington area, that's evident by the hummers, limos, and other expensive vehicles... As well as the large mansions such as the one recently built between Winchester and Paris. But still, I'd hardly cound this as a large market area when compared with Cinncy, Philly, or certainly compared with New York, Miami, or LA.

After being asked to resign from my job at Treasury, (I admit, as a bank examiner, I sucked), I worked for a non profit while I collected unemployment. The woman who did our PR had a client who was looking for a new TV spokesperson. She heard me charming somone oput of a donation and asked me to audition. I won the audition. I did commercials for the carpet store. My 15 minutes lastred a year-one minute at a time!
