“There are three kinds of men. The ones that learn by readin’. The few who learn by observation.
The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.”

Didn’t know there was electric fences in Will Rogers’ time.
They were in use to control livestock in the early 1930’s. And NO, that’s not based upon personal observation — haha
😀 I didn’t miss it by too far, Mrs AL~!,,, and out where I live, they still ARE used to control and corral livestock, mainly Llama and horses.
Still he has a point there.
Buck, he really does~! Sadly, his life was cut so short in Barrow, Alaska Territory.
He, and Wiley Post were killed in a plane crash. He left behind a son. I’ll have to do some digging there.
Glad you stopped by. Always good to see you~!
Oh this is tooooooo good, Grouchy!
Aren’t the visuals FANTASTIC~!~?
Sometimes the simplest of words can make a VERY pertinent point. “pee on the electric fence for himself”. Classic.
Yes. His son, Will Rogers Jr. Played the lead in “The Will Rogers Story” which came out sometime in the early ’50’s.
His tragic end might not have been had he chose a pilot with two eyes. Post lost his eye in an oilfield incident and thus he had no depth perception, a vital factor in lots of flying situations…
Thank You, Buck. I wasn’t aware of that information. Snow and Fog are tricky for ANYONE, let along a “Cyclops” ~!
Great quote. Lot’s of truth in that one.
Reminds me of a State Trooper friend who had picked up a drunk and was taking him to the jail for the evening. Traveling down a long and isolated country road along the way, the drunk declared that he had to pee and couldn’t hold it much longer. My trooper friend stopped since he didn’t want to clean-up after him.
Before letting him out he warned the drunk that he would shoot him if he attempted escape. The drunk began to pee but managed to pee on the electric fence. The shock knocked the drunk to the ground, still peeing, while he was screaming “why did you shoot me”. True story.
Two problems here, ‘Nox,,, 1.) They Breed and 2.) They Vote. God Help Us All.
😀 ROFLMAO ASCAOTS~! Thanks, Boss~! We needed that~! 😀
