About Me

My photo
I'm an artist, an educator, Pastafarian and I write. I also will gamble on just about anything. And I like unusual juxtaposition, but I love my wife...and beer. This blog is observations from a funny old man who gets pissed off every once in a while. Oh, and I mispell alot.

In all honesty, this stop smoking is taking all my time...time that I would normally give to my blog.
Suffer with me on this one. I ought to have my finger on the pulse soon.

Something to listen to...

The future of mankind captured in one photo...

Sleeping at 8203 feet…

When your job is to sign for the deaf over the TV programs that run late in the night...

Italy plans to send an espresso machine to the International Space Station later this year, which has prompted this innovative cup design. Astronauts usually suck liquids out of containers with tubes. But that’s a terrible way to drink fine Italian coffee. Espresso should be sipped from an espresso cup. This cup developed by researchers at Portland State University can permit precisely that, even in very low gravity...

I think most Americans have been sold the bullshit idea that if you drive the same kind of car as everybody else, live in a house like everybody, dress like everybody else, etc, that you will, for sure, be happy and accepted. It's all bullshit, people. Just be yourself and watch the difference it makes.

Animals and laser pointers...

I like this new trend in hotels where to get some light on you have to walk around the room for 5 minutes turning 8 small lights on.

There seems to be a big to-do on the internet over the worth of architects...
 Most people think the engineers do the heavy lifting, but the guy who put the above image together thinks otherwise.

Store relocated padded envelopes after thieves used them to post stolen goods from inside shop...
That image shows a DVD in one of the envelopes. The store had an in-house post office, so they just mailed stolen items to themselves.
I can only assume that there were some very tricky federal laws about opening the mail to catch the thieves. Further, besides shoplifting, I think using the mail to commit a crime is a whole new ballgame.

Young Betty White in a tree...

One good way to prepare for marriage is to have someone come over and critique the way you load the dishwasher.

But, heck, you saved $5.

 Kansas Farmer Makes Art by Herding His Cattle...

 I'm assuming he's dumping feed...
 Then he just fucked with them...

These guys died in a launch pad fire...
 That's one of the reasons that the most dangerous job in the world is astronaut. Not because of the number of deaths, but rather the percentage of deaths compared to people who do the job.


I want to live in one of those countries where the lawmakers get into fistfights

You're welcome. 

 One Of My Very Own...

 This card was sent to the chef...
"Go home, Megan. Just go the fuck home." 

Have you ever wondered what words Pavarotti was singing so beautifully? Well, here they are"

Woman is flighty.
Like a feather in the wind,
she changes in voice
 and in thought.

Always a lovely,
pretty face,
in tears or in laughter,
it's untrue.

Woman is flighty.
like a feather in the wind,
she changes in voice
and in thought!

Always miserable 
is he who trusts her,
he who confides in her
his unwary heart!

Yet one never feels 
fully happy 
who from that bosom 
does not drink love!

Woman is flighty.
Like a feather in the wind,
she changes her words,
and her thoughts!

If arguing with a woman and she says “wow," you’re done…abort the argument immediately.

I know that is true because I watch A LOT of porn. 

 This is what precision looks like...
By the way, Bill Gates, of all people, has warned about making robots too smart. Now that is something to think about.

I read somewhere that there is a very thin line between pain and pleasure...
 But I never was comfortable inflicting pain even if she like it.

Age-old question answered...


Snake with feet found in the Philippines...

 Can we assume the bread was baked in the can?
We've all seen it rain on only one side of the street, but I've never seen it snow like this...

Read with Montag, Fahrenheit 451...

In 100% of cases, when starting a sentence with ‘If you ask me’ indicates no one asked you.

One million Earths: A visual representation of how many Earths could fit inside the sun...

Growing up sucks. People aren’t nearly as eager to know what my favorite dinosaur is. It’s a Gorgosaurus. But you don’t care.

 My Final Word...

A girl who sleeps with you for your money is better than a girl who just wants to get your money.

Is it just me, or does the nerd to the extreme left of frame in the robot samurai clip look like he's beating off to his automaton masterpiece?

I, thankfully, have never smoked but have been told by many many people it is among the most difficult things to over come. Good Luck to Sir Ralph.

I don't know your plan in the quitting smoking effort, but I highly recommend the vapor cigarettes. My husband, who tried many times to quit (started at 15, and smoked till he was 57) had tried time and time again to quit. He was able to using these, as was my son-in-law. And it made it less painful for the wife as well. :) Wishing you the best! CC
