A Playground for Grannies

Why should little kids have all the fun?

I guess in Europe there are free outdoor gyms like this all over.  What a great way to encourage older people to stay in shape.

Modern Underground Survival Shelter

Although this is might seem geared more towards doomsday preppers, in areas of a country that it is extremely hot, or perhaps even someday colonizing Mars, it would be cooler than living above ground.  

One thing that would be hard to get used to besides the lack of privacy and feelings of claustrophobia would be not having an outdoor view and sunlight.

Charlie Murphy's True Hollywood Stores: Prince

Charlie Murphy is the brother of Eddie Murphy and was a comedian on the Dave Chappelle Show and one of the skits was Charlie Murphy'sTrue Hollywood Stores of the time he and his brother met Prince and hung out with him.

Dave Chappelle give a dead-on imitation of Prince in the skit and Prince liked it so much he used a picture of Chappelle as Prince on his single "Breakfast Can Wait".

In the radio interview below, Prince confirms the skit was a true story.

Although Prince in humble in the interview and says he wasn't that good; it was just Murphy was that bad at basketball, despite his short stature, Prince was a good basketball player when he was in school and had the drive even then not to settle for being second best.

10 Songs You Didn't Realize Prince Wrote

Like the rest of the world, I was shocked to hear Prince passed way yesterday.

He was such a talented singer/songwriter/performer and not only did he carve his own place into music history with his unique style and flair, he also launched the careers of many other, like a few of the above such as Morris Day and the Times, Sinead O'Conner, Sheila E. and Susanna Hoffs of the Bangles, but also wrote hits for established stars like Stevie Nicks (formerly in Fleetwood Mac in the '70's) and Madonna.

He was a true original and cultural icon who will continue to influence musicians long after today.

May he be rocking it out in Heaven:)

This was originally on Reddit two years ago and made up by a Mom of a graduate, but you could change 2014 to 2016 and take it to any graduation ceremony that is coming up and get a "Bingo"; just don't jump up and yell it or it will probably get you kicked out.
