Tell us about yourself:
Joined AARP in 2020, when I turned 50. My father was a big fan of the organization, so I guess I've joined it based on his recommendations. (He's gone now.) I am neither avocado nor dog. Nor do I have a dog. (But I love animals.) I had to come up with a user name when I joined, and I looked up and saw a silly quote I had pinned to my bulletin board that includes that unlikely combination of words. Pretty irreverent about a lot of stuff, but I never mean to offend. I think of myself as a decent guy.
Area of knowledge and what I know well:
I am a veritable cesspool of useless knowledge, to quote some "Jeopardy!" contestant I remember from the 1980s.
Bio
Because my Dad was a big fan of AARP I joined the organization when I turned 50. I believe I am a cesspool of useless knowledge who simultaneously operates as a professional social distancer.

I probably have a copy of it somewhere; if I can dig it up I'll transcribe a few of the less-naughty limericks – and none of them were too naughty. (That photo was an image of it I found online.)

My introduction to limericks was when I was a kid and found a copy of this book...  ...in our cellar, in a little storage cabinet next to the washer & dryer. The limericks inside were sort of cheeky and vaguely risqué as I recall (so there was none f...

Yep — YouTube ain't just for funny cat videos or 1960s Bert Kaempfert songs! I go there all the time for DIY / repair help.  Type in what you're looking for and nine times out of ten, someone has posted a video about it — of varying helpfulness. The ...

About a year and a half ago I had one of  these "Beyond" Burgers at Carl's Jr:  I didn't realize it was meatless / plant-based until after I was halfway through eating it. I had a coupon for it and ordered it without reading it closely. It was fine. ...
