Doug, who I play hockey with on the Ordinals and is also a Facebook friend, posted this intriguing little killer of time. He posted as a Facebook note and I created my own Facebook note in reply, but I wanted to post it here as well because I found it so entertaining.

When this was a Facebook note, it had this title (and that will make more sense when you see the last question):”OVERTURE – Or How Doug Helped Me Kill Some Time…”
