One Of My Very Own…

And this nice lady is on the team what found it.

I’m so torn between which presidential candidate I want to vote for the least.



A massive iceberg that became grounded near a colony of penguins in Antarctica has caused more than 150,000 of the birds to die after leaving them landlocked with almost no way to get food.


When you show up at the site, you just type in your topic and you get dozens of scientific papers on the topic.
And here is the person who brought it to you - Alexandra Elbakyan.

Here’s the link.


Another site that is very educational and fun is this unique timeline of just about everything that ever happened and who was alive at that time. Give it a try, I think you will like it.

I bought my wife and elephant.
She said, “Thank you.”

I said, “Don’t mention it.”


A couple of devices to ease your cleanup...

And the PowerBroom

I had no idea there was such a thing, but I can see the necessity.

The concrete can melt away ice and snow on its own, making roadways much safer. What's its secret? Steel shavings and carbon particles, which make up about 20 percent of the concrete mixture, can conduct electricity to melt away dangerous ice.

Somebody that knows more about this, please tell me if the skier is going away from the camera or toward the camera.

The worst walk of shame on record.


After her shift ended, the bartender came around and sat next to me and had a glass of wine while she checked her messages on her phone. Then a server sat beside her to chat and the bartender said, “Look at the door prize my roommate got at a party.” I thought she was talking to me, so I glanced over and saw a huge black dildo. Both of the girls moaned approvingly. THEY MOANED! I but smiled.


The role of the artist is to ask questions, not answer them.

I used to take my kids to a romantic restaurant on Valentine’s Day as a birth control reminder to the other couples.

Scientists Grow a Living Human Ear on a Rat

Okay, I get the bonding issue...

 But what about devil woman in the background.

The way they used to build them...

If you want to take my advice and give your children colored pencils, please don't over do it. It only confuses them.


Patience: What parents have when there are witnesses.

Any round-earthers care to explain this NASA photo I found on the internet? Checkmate.

There is something universally mesmerizing about watching this sort of thing.

I'm one of the people who watched the movie Contact and read the book by Carl Sagan. In the book when the scientist meets her dad on the beach, he says, "It's all in pi. Pay attention to pi."
So when she gets back they set up a mega-computer to run pi fractions as far as they could go. After months of numbers streaming up the screen, they was an alarm of an anomaly and when they looked there was a perfect zero on the screen written by the lighter and darker numbers. Now scroll down and wonder how much cooler it would have been if the numbers did this exact same thing.


Did you know that photosynthesis produces a small amount of light? Well in the height of the growing season a satellite picked up that light....small, but there.
Also, in its peak the corn belt in America produces 40% more oxygen than the Amazon rain forest.

Italian court has ruled that bribes to traffic cops of €100 or less are not big enough to be deemed as corruption.

Studies show that 1 in 4 men has faked an orgasm, which…why?!

I read an inspirational quote: "Live each day as if it were your last." This would be the result...

And in more worthless news:
It's a watch pocket, originally for men who wore pocket watches and needed a protective place to store them.
And that bit of news came with this clip...

Why did NASA send women into space?

Because they weigh 50lbs less than a dishwasher.

Who can't use a belt fed 12 gage ?

 Speaking of...

I thought the $200 was enough.

Consequences of cheap oil.


There are only two kinds of beer in the world. Beer I drank and beer I’m going to drink.

The best advice I can give you about fighting is this: If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.

Abandoned, unfinished remains of two Russian space shuttles.



Before they invented coffee did people just not work in the morning?

My laptop's reaction to me going on pornhub

My wife found me watching PornHub and said, “Are you watching porn AGAIN?!”
And I said, “No, I’m trying to see if this plumber manages to fix this sink.”


Remember that Australian film - Charlie’s Country, that I recommended? Well, I got to thinking about Charlie and here’s my take on it.
We are going to take a trip back in time to a fishing tribe along the coast of Australia. They ate mostly fish, clams, oysters and crabs…some lobsters. They perfected hook making from bone and fishing line from plant fibers. They even developed nets…after a couple of thousand years of trial and error. Life was good. Most children lived to adulthood due to an adequate diet and clean water was plentiful from the numerous rivers nearby.
One day these people came in contact with another tribe; an inland tribe who were hunters. Hunting was hard and hardest on the women and children, since the male hunters had to eat first to stay strong enough for the next hunt. But on that day of contact, the hunting party came face to face with dozens of healthy women and children and, naturally, did what humans always do, they attacked.
Not only had the hunters been perfecting weapons for generations, but hunting strategies as well. Within weeks the men of the fishing tribe had been murdered and the women and children taken as slaves and/or healthy wives.
But that wasn’t the last of it. One tribe conquered or attempted to conquer each tribe it came in contact with until they invented…boundaries…then cities, which gave them time to create empires.
Then one day the white man arrived and took over the whole goddamn continent. They did EXACTLY what the original inhabitants had been doing for generations and yet contemporary ethics judge these white men barbaric.
This imperialism occurred on every continent until we find ourselves dealing with just the latest arbitrary borders…just waiting for the next invasion. And that, Gentle Reader, is just the nature of man.

That’s how I have it figured anyway. Have a nice day.

Toward the camera (away from the cottage). You can tell from the snow debris from each turn (called Christies). You can also see where the skier dragged the ski poles (considered bad form by true experts)

You might want to check out what this Croatian "fat letter painter", as you like to label us, did with those pipes :)

Senph42, thank you very much. The heart was wonderful.
I call them fat letter paintings because I don't know what else to call them.
