This morning's trivia on KOIT...
Q:¬† What year was voicemail patented?
A: in 1979
It was invented by Gordon Mathews, who later noted¬† "I'm not really pleased with some of the things I see voicemail being used for today.¬† We didn't design this technology to annoy people, but rather make their lives easier." Thanks, but I guess it's back to drawing board, Mr. Mathews.
Any favorite new shows this season? I haven't had a chance to see many,¬† but I'm hooked on "Glee"¬† on Fox, and the new season of "Mad Men" on AMC. "Community" on NBC just hasn't been doing it for me, so bye-bye TiVo Season Pass.¬† I glanced at¬† the first few minutes of the National Parks documentary from Ken Burns on PBS, and it looks spectacular! But clocking in at 12 hours,¬† I'm going to have to spread it out over a month or so.¬† I do have to sleep, eat, help raise a family, earn a living, exercise, and Facebook every once in a while.
Danville hero Captain Chesley¬† "Sully" Sullenberger, who so skillfully piloted his jetliner to a safe emergency landing in New York's Hudson River last January, is heading back to work with US Airways. This leaves the door wide open for the airline to charge a "Sully" fee..... a premium levied at passengers aboard any flight with Captain Sullenberger in the cockpit.¬† All the airlines have surcharges on surcharges,¬† but that's one I'd gladly pay....in a heartbeat.
