During today's AD&D game, my players encountered a sarcophagus containing the remains of a long-dead sorcerer. After they smashed the skeletal corpse into dust, I responded by saying that they were worse archaeologists than Indiana Jones. The party thief responded, "hey man, we're not trying to archaeologist anything, we just wanted to make sure that dead guy didn't wake up."

I think Gorbacz just won the internet. Reposted from FB:
There's an apocryphal story in my family that's been applied to both me at age 4, and my cousin at age 4:
4-year-old: "Can I get a dog?"
My other cousin, around age 5 at the time (he's now 20), upon being presented with a pair of hand-me down pants, once proclaimed that they were "very comfortable, and useful too."
Found this one after getting curious about the origin of a common proverb after hearing it used in a conversation:
The proverb "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime" is often attributed to Confucius or the Bible, but actually most likely dates to the 19th century.
The oldest English-language version of the proverb can be found in Anne Isabella Thackeray Ritchie's 1885 novel Mrs. Dymond, as "If you give a man a fish he is hungry again in an hour. If you teach him to catch a fish you do him a good turn." (Source: Wiktionary)

The last line Lex Luthor says in the 1986 movie Superman IV is when he tells Superman, "I'll see you in twenty years." The next Superman movie to come out, Superman Returns, was released in 2006.
In 1991, during the 22nd and final episode of the second season of "Twin Peaks," "Episode 29," a character trapped in an evil realm is visited by the spirit of a dead woman and told "I will see you again in 25 years." In 2014, show creator David Lynch announced that "Twin Peaks" will resume as a TV miniseries in 2016. Talk about an epic brick joke...

East Aurora, New York is 90 miles west of Aurora, New York.
Having lived in New York State for most of my life, this doesn't surprise me in the least. Nothing makes sense here.
A fun fact about Central New York: whoever named stuff around here really liked those Greeks and Romans. Neighboring cities and towns include Rome, Ithaca, Utica, Verona, Greece, Italy, Cicero, Tully, Camillus, Marcellus, Manlius, Palmyra, and Cincinnatus. And those are just the ones I could think of off the top of my head.
It's come to my attention that I bear a disturbing resemblance to my boss. Both around the same age, tattooed, with similar features, buzz cuts, and Irish last names. If it weren't for the fact that he's a couple inches shorter and has way better people skills, I could assume his identity and take over the world.
Speaking of IMDB... Actor Malachy Cleary, a.k.a. David Barrodale of the Onion News Network, a.k.a. Warren G. Harding of 'Boardwalk Empire,' is my first cousin once removed.
