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.

One Of My Very Own…


WARNING: She never said this.

Yet have been sent it a dozen times. I might post something untrue, but I don't do it maliciously.
It's sort of like this...

Do you actually believe that Trump is a Fascist?
Now, don't get me wrong, I detest just about everything about the man.

I don't need mindless name calling on either side.

Then there was this outside the debate.


My Editorial Page Editor friend pointed out that there are very few election signs in people's yards this year. I had noticed the same thing. Surely that must tell us all something.
There are entire populations of the world that consider current American politics the Jersey Shore of governments.
This wonderful human being used the roadtrip coordinates to find two of my "Spoon Installations" in South Dakota - called that despite being forks and knives also.
The first one had been removed.

The other on a barbed wire fence out in the middle of nowhere...

I'm going to put this man in my will.

And if you would like to see what the locator site looks like, it's pretty impressive.
If that doesn't work, here's a longer version:

And here's an example:
 A close-up of my quip:


The scientific basis for our modern nutrition policy is flawed. Guidelines are often based on cherry picking and bad science.
Elon Musk presents the Interplanetary Transport System; or how he plans on getting people to Mars. Rather breathtaking if you ask me.

If you haven't used a juice box as a chaser, then you probably haven't reached your low point in parenting.


The lighter side of photography...


And no, being a party animal does not mean you can get away with pooping on the carpet.

If This Isn't 'Murica, I Don't Know What Is.

Calais, France
Goods transport vehicles have things thrown at them if they are too fast, up to 10kms (6 miles) from the border, heading to England. And bolt cutters used to open the backs when slow enough.

I thought it was for the purpose of theft, but no...


And they use an image like that to get me NOT to try it? Odd.

The NSA has been pretty good about getting their activities our of the news lately...don't you think?

Extremely sharp blade splitting hair. Said to be Russian.

And as seen at the end, it appears that the hair is being pulled, not pushed. But at the beginning, when the hair is pulled back, it looks like it is being pushed. Any ideas?

You would think they would have a way to time the take off so this wouldn't happen...

I wonder how many people (if anyone) actually got a bucket of blood poured on them at their prom.

I've always enjoyed sports trivia.

Folio Olio, here to make you feel less stupid...

With a daily dose of other people being stupid.

Oh, hell no...

Reminds me of my hatred of Cat Scan machines.

Tornado scar and the house it barely missed.

I once saw a picture of where a tornado had sucked the asphalt right of the highway. I spent a lot of time looking for an image of it on Google, but to no avail.

Just a reminder that if you haven't seen this movie, you can't call yourself a movie buff...

The oldest melody in existence
The hymn was discovered in the 1950s inscribed with Cuneiform text on a clay tablet in Ugarit, now part of modern-day Syria, and is dedicated the Hurrians’ goddess of the orchards Nikkal. It’s the oldest surviving melody and is over 3400 years old.
Listen here -

If it works it ain't stupid.

The world's tallest known living tree...other than Donald Trump's ego.

It's Hyperion, a 379.7-foot-tall redwood located in California. That's as high as a 40 story building.

Hand-build replica of the 1600s dutch batavia. it took a team 10 years to build with the same tools they used then.

Absolutely amazing.

I posted something similar recently of a girl and wrote: "This could have been much, much worse."
Well, here's worse...

What it is going to be like with self-driving cars?


I was lowering myself into depression one time. Depression said, "Wrong hole."

About 18 km to the west of Varna, Bulgaria, on the road to the capital of Sofia is a remarkable natural area called Pobiti Kamani or the Stone Forest. At first glance, it looks like the ruins of an ancient temple, but these broken stone pillars are all natural.
The stone columns are distributed in small groups across an 8 km long belt along the northern Bulgarian Black Sea coast.

They vary in height with some reaching 5 to 7 meters tall, and thickness ranging from 30 centimeters to 3 meters across.

The most curious thing about these pillars is that they are mostly hollow and filled with sand.

They don’t have a solid foundation or attached to the bedrock. Instead, they are loosely stuck into the surrounding sand as if some one had hammered them into the earth.

I wonder if they have anything to do with the "Sand Blows" like in Missouri.


It's call a Roll Cloud; this one over Lake Michigan.

I have a chair very similar to this. With those arms you can see how easy it is to place a 1x12 across to hold my computer.

I mounted an L-bracket at the end to keep me from pushing it off when watching porn.

A new product so you and your friends can laugh afterwards...

Did you ever wonder what it would look like for a shopping cart at 117 km/h?

Me neither.

Tried to post this a while back but it wouldn't load, so here it is...

That's how you put a crew of men out of work.

Is there any doubt that a man is driving that truck?

I'm going to show this to my bartenders to see if it would make their jobs easier.

"Anger Release Machine": a coin-op for shattering fine breakables.

Can we assume they break in the bottom of the machine?

This is an interesting map.

So where would you think that deforestation would be prohibited? Yeah, the very same red area in South America where they are cutting down trees at an alarming rate.

Police Hack: Just tell them you are too drunk to understand your rights right now, so it would just get thrown out of court.


In 1978 the last female to be executed in Texas was asked what she would like for her last mean. She responded, "I don't know, what do you want?"


We don't need workers so much as we need thinkers. The public schools don't like thinkers. They like obeyers.

Do I really believe that Trumplethinskin is a fascist? Why, yes. Yes, I do. I even looked up the definition of fascism to make sure I wasn't improperly using the word, but, nope, I'll stand by that statement.
