Robert Ridgely Taylor was born Sept. 1, 1935, in Baltimore and grew up in Cincinnati. He showed an early gift for salesmanship when he sold a homing pigeon to a pet store - "numerous times," according to a statement from his family.

So let's all congratulate him for being an underhanded thieving little swindler.

He also benefited from being a white male born in the year whose babies were most likely in American and world history to benefit from their times and achieve upward mobility and economic success.  If your dream is to be born poor and die rich, your best shot is to be white, male and born in 1935 specifically.

This cohort was the perfect age to avoid every draft, come of age in the heyday of post WWII economic boom, and be educated by the over-educated but often underemployed WWII vets who'd taken advantage of the GI Bill.  While obviously the years around it were good too, no other cohort has quite achieved the levels of economic improvement as those white males born in 1935.

Archfeld: Amos Quito: Danger Avoid Death: Oldiron_79: Danger Avoid Death: Oldiron_79: Lsherm: Look, for those of us old enough to remember the pre-liquid soap days, liquid soap was a watershed in shower masturbation.  This man is to be revered as a visionary.

So I should jerk it with shampoo tonite instead of KY in honour of this visionary?

No. You should jerk it with a homing pigeon.

Well Im pretry sure they are extinct, so Id have to settle on a furry with a pigeon costume.

Passenger pigeons are extinct. Homing pigeons, sometimes called carrier pigeons, are still around today.


Overworked to DEATH, they were.


This pigeon is NO MORE....*knocks dead pigeons' head into counter top repeatedly*

lohphat: Gyrfalcon: I was unaware bar soap was "obsolete."

I wonder what I've been using for lo these many years....

This.

I can buy a six pack of bar soap for the same price of one of those pumps and I then don't have a piece of plastic to send to a landfill.

It's these types of "innovations" we can do without.


Indeed. I wonder how much landfill waste his 'invention' is responsible for?

The only exception for liquid soap should be that foaming stuff they have now in most public restrooms, which comes in refill things anyway so not nearly as wasteful. That stuff is awesome. I despise places that haven't switched over from the nasty pink gooey soap yet.
