    The ultimate hub, Chieco figured, would be a spaceship. You could leave the spaceship in a smaller vessel, a pod, but you’d have to return to the mother ship to refuel and get food. Then Chieco was shown a prototype iPod, with its stark white plastic front.

    HAL 9000 – Origin of the name (Wikipedia)


    …about once a week some character spots the fact that HAL is one letter ahead of IBM, and promptly assumes that Stanley and I were taking a crack at the estimable institution … As it happened, IBM had given us a good deal of help, so we were quite embarrassed by this, and would have changed the name had we spotted the coincidence.

    Pony Soldier (Linguaholic)


    There is a movie that came out in 1952 called “Pony Soldier,” and in the movie, the term “Pony Soldier” is used to refer to a Royal Canadian Mounted Police, who is also the protagonist of the film. The term also appeared in “Hondo,” a John Wayne film that came out in 1953. Other than that, “pony soldier” is an esoteric term that isn’t used much by English-speaking communities.

    Trump stole model of Air Force One (Politico)


    While in office, Trump tried to repaint Air Force One red, white and blue. Like a lot of his worst ideas, that never happened, but he did have a model of the plane that he kept in the Oval Office and that often appeared in official photos with world leaders. He apparently really liked the souvenir, because instead of leaving it behind for Biden, Trump packed it up and brought it down to Mar-a-Lago, where it’s now prominently displayed on a coffee table in the lobby.

    Murray Head - Say It Ain’t So Joe (YouTube)


    Say it ain’t so, Joe please

    Say it ain’t so

    I’m sure they’re telling us lies Joe please tell us it ain’t so

    They told us that our hero has played his TRUMP card

    He doesn’t know how to go on

    We’re clinging to his charm and determined smile

    But the good old days are gone

    The image and the empire may be falling apart

    The money has gotten scarce

    One man’s word held the country together

    But the truth is getting fierce

    Say it ain’t so, Joe please

    Say it ain’t so

    We pinned our hopes on you Joe and they’re ruining our show

    Joe and Jill

    Went up The Hill

    To take a sacred oath.

    Joe gave a speech,

    Without naming the impeached,

    And heralded the return of Truth.
