Had no idea what this meant. Had to look it up.

Don't know shit about golf. Never watched golf on TV, never played golf, except miniature golf with my kids and one time went to the driving range with a buddy.

Just wasn't interested, still not.

Well, my dad was a huge fan so he took me to tournaments when I was a kid. Arnold Palmer was popular then like Tiger Wood is now. So many fans would follow him around (his army) that you couldn't see him play over the heads of other fans. So, they started selling these cardboard periscopes with mirrors so you could see him play if you were in the back. The photo I posted shows one of these periscopes. It actually worked.

I actually built a periscope like that with two mirrors when I was a kid. Not to watch golf. I can’t quite remember what got me interested in it. But it was pretty cool. I think I used a Reynolds Wrap box.

Correct. Salvador Dalí with Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel in 1938.

Dalí - "Portrait imaginaire de Lautréamont à 19 ans obtenu d’après la méthode paranoiaque-critique" (1937 lithograph). Snapped this picture in Chicago (see here).

The guy could work circles around anyone. Never really liked him, though. Tried my best to avoid him.

You know you're old when...

... you just accept that you can`t drive the car any better than those that developed it

Saves a fortune on modifications
