We're a strange society dontcha think ...
... that notes this anniversary every year? I can see year 1, 5, 10, 20, 25 (maybe 2 and 15), but 29?? It's one thing for a person that has a special relationship with the deceased, but that this is "newsworthy" (I heard it on TV) does kinda bug me.
It's a strange case...
Elvis... a world wide Icon that a Japanese prime minister will imitate on state visits and preachers will imitate as they marry couples in 24 hour chapels. People swear they have picked up Elvis as a hitch hiker long after he was reported dead. Just knowing him has made others celebrities. He is acknowledged as american royalty. I wonder how many countries in the world where a person on the street would recognize his name or a recording of his voice?
His legend has eclipsed his life. He's the Paul Bunyan of rock and roll and could probably bring peace to the middle east with a sneer and a swivel of his hips.
A friend of mine... his mom is a 71 year old life long Elvis fan. I don't understand her at all, god bless her. But the music and the visits to Graceland and the black velvet Elvis paintings makes her happy.
Life could be a lot uglier!
As a future mythology built around a celebrity... try googling all the "Why Chuck Norris Rules" websites.
(NT) hes alive and well in area 54
The only possible way for Elvis to be alive, is he would have no choice but to be working as an Elvis impersonater.That way when people spot him, they will say, "you look just like Elvis" Then he will say, thank you, thank you very much....Maggie
think about it
Personal question maggie
Did you actually type maggie in 6243 times before the sign up page said "This name is not taken"
Now, for a more serious question... did Elvis ever, actually say, " Thank you, Thank you very much".
#1 Went over my head.
#2 Yes, I believe he did.
... if you were to choose just Maggie as your ID, and it's taken, websites come back with other suggestions. Like Maggie1, Maggie19##, etc. So grim was asking if you had to try all 6242 before they allowed 6243
I was joking but I had always wondered...
how someone got "fred twelve thousand and seven" or "samuel eighteen hundred" as their screen name. I got caught in the numbers game one time (I think it was for an online account of some sort) but its interface wasn't kind enough to give you available names like some now do.
I always imagined some determined soul out there typing in "Stan 243", hitting enter and upon getting a negative, then types in "Stan 244" until they reach the available number.
now i know why Ray Bradbury
Many use birth year ...
... maybe some use a badge number, phone number digits, address, etc.?
I would try not to use such numbers...
since an enterprising social engineer/hacker might find a way to take advantage.
Some what off subject... I once pulled up to a drive thru ATM (while out with friends) late one night as the guy in front of me drove off. The fellow had left his ATM card behind so I pulled it out in order to use mine. I noticed on the back he had wrote down a birthday (a girlfriend maybe?).
Later that night my buddy who had been playing with the card all night... stuck the lost card into an ATM at a bar and punched in the birthday. Sure enough, the idiot used that as his PIN number and we had access to the guys account. We didn't take advantage of this... we just left the card alone (as I held my friend in a full nelson :D) until the machine ate the card. Since that time I have avoided using any significant number for any purpose.
I have a new pin number trick
When we got our latest ATM cards in the mail, the computer generated PINS were sent along as usual. My first inclination was to go switch it to something I know, but figured I needed something to remember the given PIN for a little while so I could use the card until I had the opportunity to do the change. So I wrote the numbers down and the keypad letters underneath each. Came up with something in letters that I could remember and did the same for my hubby. Both are very easy to remember, but would never have been created by us. Never ended up changing the PIN's. The notices with the original pins were burned in the fireplace Perhaps as added security one could use a random sequence generator to generate a PIN and do the same thing, that way at least the PIN is changed once.
Kind of trick code breakers use to create and break simple codes.;)
The story of an underground Elvis teaming up with a black JFK to battle the evil of an undead egyptian mummy come back to wreak havoc on a Texas retirement home. You gotta see it to believe it.
Who says he died?
Wasn't he seen on Mars or Venus?
