FRIDAY #2500

One Of My Very Own…


THERE WILL BE FULL POSTS THIS WEEKEND


Very short and very well done...Bernie Sanders playing the bongos...




Petra Laszlo is the unpleasant human who tripped a Syrian refugee called Osama Abdul Mohsen as he walked past her with a child in his arms.

She is currently on trial for disturbing the peace, but has vowed that whatever the outcome, she will sue Facebook (for not clobbering the message-boards in which people say mean things about her) and her victim, Mr Mohsen, who has settled in Italy.
That's right, she is suing the person she tripped who was holding a child.

Got this comment from a faithful visitor:

Are you aware that someone has created a Facebook profile for Folio Olio? It appears to have been created by someone with a fake profile. I'm not sure how familiar you are with Facebook, but your bartenders can tell you, you might want to have that removed. Whoever this is can publish any trash they want as if they were you, and I just don't want to see anyone mess with your legacy, damn it. You and your wife are fucking awesome. Take care.

Ninja Grrrl

I really don't know what to do about that.

One of the forecast models for rain through Midnight Sat/Sun.

We live between Austin (13.17) and Georgetown (10.17).
What kills me, is they forecasted it to the nearest 1/100 of an inch.  That’s .25 millimeters (or about two one dollar bills high).

These soft little fingers form a capsule which protects the uterus of the dam from the foal’s hooves during gestation.
The rubbery capsule also protects the mare as the foal travels along the birth canal.

You have to be quick to snap a pic of them as they begin to dry out and fall/wear away the minute that they make contact with the air. Within 24 hrs of birth there is barely a trace of them remaining.

The Lytro Illum dares to be different, boasting even more robust features than its first generation predecessor and a sleek design reminiscent of professional DSLRs. What's so cool about it? Most cameras capture the position of light rays, producing a statoc 2D image.

Speaking of...
 Police responding to a 911 call turned up at the Austintown, Ohio home to find the 22-year-old man who called for emergency help "laying on the floor, in the fetal position... surrounded by a plethora of Doritos, Pepperidge Farm Goldfish, and Chips Ahoy cookies." According to the police report, the fellow said he “smoked too much weed” and was “too high and could not feel his hands."

And that one was true.

I've heard -- and repeated -- the theory that addiction rates among indigenous people in the Americas was caused by genetics -- specifically, that "new world" populations hadn't gone through the European plague years' genetic bottleneck that killed everyone who couldn't survive on alcoholic beverages (these having been boiled during their production and thus less likely to carry infectious diseases). But there's no evidence to support that theory.

No. For doubters, ABC News heard about another bipedal bear ambling around New Jersey, and a reporter tracked it down. Locals told the reporter that the bear, which they nicknamed Vinny, walked on his two hind legs quite well.
I'm thinking it has shoulder or back problems, but that sort of answers the evolution deniers' question about why would a monkey just "decide" to walk on two legs.
And it has better posture than most of my relatives.

THERE WILL BE TWO FULL POSTS THIS WEEKEND. ONE IS A THEME POST BECAUSE YOU ASKED FOR IT.

Wonder books you need:
Some quotes that impressed me:

When the Amboseli matriarch Eleanor was dying, the matriarch Grace approached her, her facial glands streaming with emotion, and tried to lift her to her feet. Grace stayed with the stricken Eleanor through the night of her death, and on the third day Eleanor’s family and closest friend Maya visited the corpse. A week after the death the family returned again to express what can only be called their grief. A researcher once played the recording of a deceased elephant’s voice to its family. The creatures went wild searching for their lost relative, and the dead elephant’s daughter called for days after.






A telling characteristic of Twenty-one was the way he loved to wrestle with the little ones and pretend to lose. The wolf expert Rick McIntyre said, “He’d just fall on his back with his paws in the air. And the triumphant-looking little one would be standing over him with his tail wagging.” “The ability to pretend,” McIntyre said, “shows that you understand how your actions are perceived by others. It indicates high intelligence.”



The wolves that were better able to read human tendencies and reactions, and were less skittish of human contact, would have gotten access to more food scraps from human camps. And human clans willing to tolerate the wolves would have obtained valuable warnings of the presence of danger from other animals (and other humans).



Because female killer whales can live up to eighty years, around a quarter of females in any group are post-reproductive. Yet they remain sexually active. Grandmothers are evidently very important in killer whale societies, almost certainly because of the wisdom they have gathered over a lifetime.



An equally odd aspect of killer whale culture concerns food taboos and ways that whales observe them. In this they offer an extraordinary parallel with some human cultures. One clan of killer whales eats only a single species of salmon. Another kills only one species of seal. When members of a mammal-eating clan were captured for the aquarium trade in the 1970s, they starved themselves for seventy-eight days before eating the salmon being proffered, and then they ate the fish only after they had performed a strange ceremony. The two whales held gently onto either end of a dead salmon, and swam a single lap around their pool with it in their mouths, before dividing the fish between themselves and consuming it. Killer whales are strongly xenophobic. Clans of salmon eaters never mix with mammal eaters, for example. Genetic studies show that clans with different food taboos don’t interbreed, leading to slightly different appearances and genetic makeup.
