Hindsight wisdom

I wanted to see if the gushingly described engaged couple in my 1992 magazine were still married, but there was nothing under the uncommon maiden name, and the married name was too common.

I was able to check TV Guide's predicted "best battles" of the 2000 Sydney Olympics: out of the 5 listed, 2 finished 1 and 2, 2 more finished 1 and 3, and the last finished 1 and 27. But further research showed the 27th place athlete had to drop out of the heptathlon after 5 events due to injury. So pretty good.

Either someone said this recently or I read it: Chinese teacups have no handles because if the cup is too hot to touch, the tea is too hot to drink. Makes a lot of sense in this era of hot-cup lawsuits.
