Scope it, as in Horoscope: From here on out, it may be wise to keep up on the important events of the day, even if they are painful.
Bonehead Tip of the Day: Holidays are coming. Get ready for that office party where you will get so drunk you will need to call off three days later. Bring in all the fatty foods that you know your coworkers are trying to avoid. Put a piece of cake on their desk, along with cookies and candy. Yell or laugh at them if they said they do not eat those items. With Halloween coming, you know what to do as well. Besides the food and candy, make sure you dress up in the skimpiest costume or the one where you find it hard to use the bathroom. Do not forget to film that party so you can put it on You Tube.
Trivia: Girolamo Fracastoro’s mother had a hard time pronouncing his name. Yeah, maybe, but she was holding him one day when she was killed by lightning.

But to be honest, getting the word “syphilis” in a trivia item always makes me smile. Oh, we are not done yet. A Romanian man applied for a phone in 1977 and didn’t get it installed until 1997. Finally you say, but it didn’t matter. Turns out he never got to use the phone. He died two days before it was installed. So, it was still installed after he died. Imagine if he ordered cable.
Truth is: All offices or families do not make for a good sitcom. These days, however, we all try. Oh yeah, when the flop is indeed proved to be a flop is there anything wrong with the flip?
Closer: Does the genetically altered salmon swim with the current? If not, who cares?
