    The NEVERENDING Old News Thread

    ******NEWS FLASH******
    After suffering a decisive defeat at the hands of the Viet Minh at Dien Bien Phu, the French sign an accord at Geneva agreeing to withdraw from Viet Nam!!





    Okay, I swear every time I see the thread title NEVERENDING odd news thread it registers in my brain as 'old news', so why not just be done with it and actually have an old news thread.

    So who can come up with the stalest news?
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Hey, watch it. A few more statements like that and you could be sleeping with the fishes.

    It's nothing personal. Just business.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
