On the freeway the other day, I saw a car pull over to the shoulder of the road before the police cruiser even turned on his lights or positioned itself behind the car.

Suddenly thinking about getting a 12 month subscription to PC World magazine, just to keep up with all the new gadgets in the computer world.

As a child, I used to think the phase was "old wise tales"... to me this meant that there were things people use to think were "wise" but were now known to be false. Then I learned that the phrase was "old wive's tales", I found this confusing (still do). Can anyone explain the origin of this phrase? (I guess I can use google) hmm...something about old married women sitting around telling stories. This is not a very satisfying answer (since this just reuses the words). I presumed everyone sat around telling stories.
Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.
