Karsten Braasch vs Williams Sisters One 'battle of the sexes' sports event that has curiously not gotten much attention was the impromptu beatdown that an obscure male German professional tennis player named Karsten Braasch handed to both Serena and Venus Williams during the 1998 Australian Open. At that event, the Williams sisters confidently walked into the Australian ATP office and boldly announced that either one of them could beat a top-200 male player. The 30-year-old Braasch, who had been ranked 38th in the world at his peak in 1994 but had dropped to 203rd by 1998, accepted the sisters' crazy challenge. On January 26, 1998, with no advance publicity, the three of them went to a distant practice court to play a couple of sets. There were no officials and no TV cameras present--and only a smattering of spectators who happened to wander near the court by chance. Serena, then 16, was blasted 6-1 by Braasch. Venus, a year older than her sister, fared only slightly better, losing 6-2. Braasch gleefully rubbed in his dominance by smoking cigarettes and drinking beers during the changeovers. Serena, who would win the women's title at the U.S. Open later that year, was humbled by the shellacking. "It was extremely hard," she told reporters who descended upon the challenge match. "I didn't know it would be that hard. I hit shots that would have been winners on the WTA Tour, and he got to them easily." When Braasch was asked if either of the Williams sisters could beat a top male player, he opined, "Against anyone in the top 500, no chance--because I was playing like [number] 600 today."

Toot-A-Loop was also known as Bangle Radio in the 70'S -Toot-A-Loop was also known as Bangle Radio.It was meant to be worn around the wrist like a bracelet, or carried like a purse. If twisted, the radioís smaller half would spin and its larger half would separate, forming the shape of the letter S. In reality, the Panasonic product, was shaped like a tapered doughnut, twisting open to reveal the tuning dial for AM radio inside. OWNED!

Mr Microphone Commercial I think this is from the late 1970s. It was a real product, but it looked like a commercial parody back in its day!

LHOP - The Pride of Walnut Grove The concluding six minutes of The Pride of Walnut Grove--a terrific episode of Little House on the Prairie. Here's the plot: Mary does so well on a math exam that she qualifies to enter the state mathematics contest in Minneapolis. The Ingalls family has just $2 to their name, so it looks like Mary's trip to the big city is off. However, the school board votes to foot the bill for Mary and Caroline to make the trip. Since the town is paying her expenses, Mary feels especially pressured to win. This scene opens with another girl named Mary finishing first and Mary Ingalls placing a very respectable second--but the latter feels she's let Walnut Grove down by being runner-up.

1913 Advice for Husbands and Wives Two helpul advice books for British married couples, Don'ts For Wives and Don'ts For Husbands, published in 1913, are experiencing a renaissance in sales today. Here are some of the timeless pointers contained on their pages: FOR HUSBANDS: DON'T try to "drive" your wife. You will be much more successful if you "lead" her. DONíT scoff if your wife wants to drive the car. DONíT keep up the ďpoor little womanĒ pose too long. A woman may like to be a plaything for a little while but the novelty soon wears off. DONíT rush out of the house in such a hurry that you havenít time to kiss your wife goodbye. She will grieve over the omission all day. DONíT dwell on the beauty of other women if you know your wife to be sensitive on the point. There is no sense in rubbing sores, although some men seem to find a strange pleasure in it. DONíT spend night after night at your club, leaving your wife alone to count the hours until your return. DONíT forget to buy your wife a pair of gloves occasionally. She will always be pleased to have them. FOR WIVES: DONíT think your husband not ďmanlyĒ because he happens to be short and thin and not very strong. Manliness is not a pure physical quality. DONíT moralize by way of winning back the love that seems to be waning. Make yourself extra charming and arrange delicious dinners which include all your husbandís favorite dishes. DONíT expect your husband to be an angel. You would get very tired of him if he were. DONíT try to dictate to your husband on any subject. He wonít stand for it and there will be trouble. DONíT nauseate your husband with talking ďbabyĒ all the time. As babyís father, he will stand a good deal of it, but remember there are other interests in the world. DONíT be jealous of your husbandís bachelor friends. Let him camp out with them for an occasional weekend if he wants to. He will come back all the fresher and full of appreciation for his home. DONíT say, ďI told you soĒ to your husband, however much you feel tempted to. It does no good and he will be grateful to you for not saying it. DONíT let breakfast be a ďsnatchĒ meal. Your husband often does the best part of his dayís work on it and the engine canít work if you donít stoke it properly.
