A whole lotta choices for the Picture Slot today. If I was in an Oh That Guy mood, Richard Riehle (the guy with people skills in Office Space), Oscar Beregi Jr (a go-to Central European bad guy) and Wilfred Hyde-White (he looks like what his name sounds like) would certainly fill the bill. There are movie and TV stars and George Carlin, one of the top three stand-up comics ever. But I was in a fabulous babe mood, so we get Kim Greist from Brazil, a personal favorite of mine. Also, I like to put up pictures of fabulous babes who are about my age so I don't feel like a dirty old man all the time.

Many happy returns to all the living on the list, and to the dead, thanks for all the memories.


In the Year 2000!

Predictor: OMNI Future Almanac, published in 1982

Prediction: Average housing costs will decrease from 21.3% in 1982 to 19.1% in 2000.

Reality: Oh, don't we wish! According to a 2012 article in The Atlantic, average housing costs in 2003 (close enough) were 33% because, as we all know and can say together...

THE RENT IS TOO DAMNED HIGH!
