My home is not a place, it is people.

This is what I'm afraid my blog will turn into someday. This is (obviously) from Chuck Shepherd's "News of the Weird"




Chuck Shepherd's News of the Weird (.860)
WEEK OF AUGUST 1, 2004

(NOTE: Chuck Shepherd appeared to be getting too close to his subject matter and thus needs about three more weeks off. Before he left, he picked out some golden oldies to tide you over.)


Lead Story

Autobiography of the Least Interesting Man in America: According to a 1996 Seattle Times feature, Robert Shields, 77, of Dayton, Wash., is the author of perhaps the longest personal diary in history, nearly 38 million words on paper stored in 81 cardboard boxes covering the previous 24 years, in five-minute segments. Example: July 25, 1993, 7 a.m.: "I cleaned out the tub and scraped my feet with my fingernails to remove layers of dead skin." 7:05 a.m.: "Passed a large, firm stool, and a pint of urine. Used 5 sheets of paper." [Seattle Times, 3-17-96]
