Little things that bug me

It bugs me that computer keyboards don't have a cent sign. We have a dollar sign because it's used in code but why not a cent sign? Oh sure, you can get a cent sign with wingdings but that's a pain in the ass. Does anyone else think this is weird? Or am I weird for even bringing it up?

It must have been either a slow news day or I was just totally uninspired. I think I'll go monkey hunting. They all need a good spanking.

I was a volunteer at the Central Fla. Zoo for almost 6 years. The first tour I ever did on my own, I get to the Mandrill exhibit with a bunch of 3rd graders in tow and there's the big male, sitting at the front of the cage on his big purple ass, literally spanking the monkey for all he's worth, just as pleased as punch with himself ! I swear to God, he gave me this big shit eating grin, as if to say--- " Go ahead asshole, I want to hear you explain this to those kids ! " Of course, all the kids were like--- " Hey mister, what's that monkey doing ? " The dirty little fucker ! All I could say was--- " er, um, he's scratching himself guys, hey let's go look at the horsies and the duckies ! " Bastard ass monkeys !!! They never failed to start some shit whenever you had a crowd around you ! :-)

God damnit, monkeys are MY gig!

But to answer your question, the cent sign exists in the ascii symbol table, but since there are only 10 numeric keys on the keyboard, it didn't rank high enough to get mapped to a key.
