One Of My Very Own…

I declare a do-over...

TALKING POINTS





New Harvard study shows no evidence of racial bias in police shootings. Mr. Fryer, the author of the study, told The New York Times that the finding of no racial discrimination in police shootings was “the most surprising result of my career.”

“It is plausible that racial differences in lower level uses of force are simply a distraction and movements such as Black Lives Matter should seek solutions within their own communities rather than changing the behaviors of police and other external forces,” he said in the study’s conclusion.

I think we can all agree that this guy should be in charge.

Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC wants nothing to do with Pokemon GO. The museum is banning users from “catching ’em all,” especially because of one particular purple Pokemon. A player noticed that a Pokemon that emits poisonous gas is stationed in front of an auditorium in the museum where attendees learn about the gas chambers many Jews were placed in.

My wife and I are asking your support to help us with bail money to get my grandson out of baby jail...

By the way, I drew that sketch of me and my daughter, my grandson's mother.

If Trump is elected every door in the White House should have a sign that says, DON'T TOUCH ANYTHING.

Our forefathers fought against British rule so anyone can become president. For the first time in 240 years, we’re regretting that decision.

Krakatoa is an island in Indonesia, and the eruption happened on August 27, 1883.
The eruption completely annihilated the island, sent an enormous amount of debris 17 miles (27 km) high into the sky at half a mile per second. It also caused one of the most deadly and far-reaching tsunamis in history. In total, the eruption killed 36,000 people.
But the most amazing thing about the eruption was its sound. It made arguably the loudest sound on Earth in modern history.
It was so loud that the shock wave extended far enough to rupture the eardrums of sailors 40 miles away.
100 miles away, the sound was still 172 dB, enough to permanently destroy someone’s ears or even kill them. Wherever you are, think of a place that’s about 100 miles (161 km) away. Now imagine something happening there that causes a sound so loud where you are that if you were screaming at the top of your lungs directly into someone’s ear when the sound hit, they wouldn’t be able to hear that you were doing it. For comparison, the Saturn V launch sound was at 170 dB 100 meters away. Krakatoa was higher than that 100 miles away.
The sound cracked a foot-thick concrete wall 300 miles (483 km) away.
The sound was heard all the way in Australia (where it sounded like a distant canon ball being fired) and even as far away as Rodrigues Island, 3,000 miles away. 3,000 miles away. I’m currently in New York. Imagine if something happened in California or in Europe that I could hear in New York. I can’t even.
After the sound eventually got far enough away that humans couldn’t hear it anymore, barometers all over the world were going nuts for the next few days, as the sound waves circled the Earth 3.5 times.
Finally, you know the famous painting The Scream? Well you know how the sky’s all red for some reason? The sky is red because the painter, Edvard Munch, was inspired to paint it after seeing the Krakatoa-caused red skies all over the Western Hemisphere in the year after the eruption.

One of my wife and I's favorite thing to do is spending a few hours at the beach looking for a parking place.

Assuming it is not dyed, usually black hair comes with a darker complexion...

My dear friend, Susan, asked her mother why she had black hair but fair complexion since their ancestors came from Ireland. Her mother said, "Not all the sailors of the Spanish Armada drowned, dear."

One of my smart young friends told me he and his girlfriend were going to a rap concert. When I displayed my amazement he explained that he wanted to hear it from the best before he rated it.
Upon his return he declared it childish shit, not even music.
That is sort of how I feel about the fat letter street artists. They do it because that's what they have always done...not personal growth, no development of style.

Saying Trump can't be an antisemite because his daughter converted to Judaism is like saying he can't be sexist because he married a woman.

Never.

Why? It wouldn't sell.

Daesh (ISIS) didn't have a thing to say about the gay gunman shooting up the nightclub because there are no gays in Islam.

This is a fragment from the ‘Murchison Meteorite’ which landed in Victoria, Australia in 1969. It has been dated at nearly 4.95 billion years old – nearly 500 million years older than the age of the Earth.

We all remember the person we lost our virginity with; our first car; the first time buying a condom; our first experimentation with marijuana; and that first time buying Tampons for your wife.

And there's the rub. This guilt was caused by a ribwoman being talked into eating from a magic tree by a talking snake.


And you KNOW it's bullshit. Even you staunch believers know that evolution is a proven fact. It is not a diabolical plot by the devil to lead you astray.
And 2000 years ago it was much easier to convince people that someone had broken the laws of physics when they didn't know what the laws of physics were.
