You say you are 25% Farnsworth  is that as in Dallas.

Or was Kat the Farnsworth  great couple but like me different.

I think Farnsworth is the guy in the picture Jim has for his Icon.

Farnsworth is on the cartoon "Futurama". I personally like Bender, the wise cracking robot. I was thinking of putting one of his decals on my bumper, "Kiss my shiny metal ..."  ;D

Glad somebody finally got the reference. Hilarious cartoon. Sort of a wacky irreverent parody of The Jetsons.  In multiple episodes Bender says, "I'm XX%" something or other. Just happens that I actually am 25% Farnsworth, so hey, why not right? W.Va. branch of the family, from around Buchannon. A great uncle was interrim Governor at the time of seccession. (Incidentally, W.Va. was the only state to succeed at secession.) So a lot of things just sort of fit together in a fun way.

Knowledge without Wisdom, now that's just plain dangerous.

Opinion and fact being equally persuasive, just give me the facts and I'll distort them as I please.

Good News Everyone!
Edith has said she'd be willing to stay in the bus when we visit my family in Milton W.Va.! ( A significant departure from her earlier position) Most likely once the build is finished it'll go up there to sit on my lot by my brother's house and make road trips from that location.

Yep, he was an uncle and only in office for about a week, but while he was there he pardoned a nephew (another Farnsworth) who was an unreconstructed Rebel. (I had ancestors on both sides of that conflict) Good thing for me that he did, since otherwise I'd probably not be here. That particular ancestor was a bit of a scoundrel and was a particular friend of Frank James, who he apparently rode with for a time and who did some convalescence at the Farnsworth home following what was reportedly a gunshot wound of some sort.
