One Of My Very Own...

Seriously, if you hacked Trump’s account and wanted to make him look bad, WHAT THE HELL WOULD YOU EVEN TWEET.
They found a dinosaur feather in amber.

The world is agog with excitement.

The one-of-a-kind discovery helps put flesh on the bones of these extinct creatures, opening a new window on the biology of a group that dominated Earth for more than 160 million years.
Examination of the specimen suggests the tail was chestnut brown on top and white on its underside.

But I thought they found one several months ago. I even think I remember posting it here on Folio Olio.

I would have thought that by 2016 we would all have a finely honed crap detector.

I mean, who believes the internet anymore?!
My scientist daughter made a discovery that got international press today.

I really wanted to share it with you, but I'm not eager on you learning her name. Sorry.

NOTE: Today's post is full of gifs. I don't design it that way, I just came upon a bunch of them the day I put it together. If they run slow, I'm sorry.

A new bartender asked me if I thought she was wearing too much makeup. I told her that depends on whether she was trying to kill Batman or not.

Fidel Castro was alive?

This is exactly what I look like when some guy uses the word "bet" at my bar.

For example, a guy says "I bet he gets a hit." Well, I would say, "I'll bet he doesn't." That's called a sucker's bet, in that he has one outcome...a hit. I have all the rest of them, or a 90% chance that I win.

Say what you will about Fidel Castro, but at least he didn't use a private email server.


There are very good reasons to go to war.

But remember, we didn't go to war to save the Jews, even though we knew they were being slaughtered by the millions.

We didn't go to war to save the millions of slaughtered Cambodians during Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge.

They were in the news just recently:

Cambodian court upholds life sentences for Khmer Rouge leaders:
(AFP) Cambodia’s UN-backed court upheld life sentences for two top former Khmer Rouge leaders on Wednesday for crimes against humanity, delivering a blow to their hopes of release as they face a second trial for genocide. “Brother Number Two” Nuon Chea, 90, and ex-head of state Khieu Samphan, 85, were in 2014 the first top leaders to be jailed from a regime responsible for the deaths of up to two million Cambodians from 1975 to 1979.

I am in favor of the US and our allies having the best weapons in the world. Here Canadian Leopard 2 Tank firing a DM12 Multi-Purpose Anti-Tank 120mm round in Afghanistan

This is Our Future Secretary of Defense

Seems like a guy who knows what he's doing.

In the spring of 1917, when the United States entered the First World War, the need for more sailors and marines became paramount. In order to spark interest among young men and convince them to volunteer for the war, the US Navy decided to erect a huge wooden replica of a battleship in Union Square, in the heart of New York City.

I'm not sure how I feel about an all volunteer army. Mostly you end up with poor guys who have few, if any, chances of advancement in civilian life. Then in WWII they got it right by drafting just about anybody healthy enough and the right age. But they really fucked up during Vietnam. There were draft exemptions designed to excuse the rich more well connected kids.
By the way, in the photo above you see the Germania Life Insurance Co. I bet that company changed it's name immediately.

Now think about 2016. These are Ukrainian soldiers in the war zone, Eastern Ukraine.

There is a foreign army INSIDE THEIR COUNTRY! And the world acts like it doesn't matter.


"Lethal Weapon" is my favorite movie about how to fix a dislocated shoulder.


Life will find a way...

That magnitude 7.8 earthquake in New Zealand's South Island raised the seabed by up to two meters in places.

It is algae.

The top layer dried out, died, and turned black. It also kept the algae beneath it wet and alive. Or so I'm told.

Is this what it looks like?

I thought humans were the only ones to have sex face to face.

Unrealistic Standards of Lovebird Beauty

Today you can buy Pooping Pooches Calendar 2017 for only $14.99 USD

Keep microwaving fish in the office and stop wondering why you never get a desk by the windows.

Many people don't like this part of football.

I want those people to consider two things: 1) It is a game played to entertain us; 2) It is supposed to be fun.


If anyone had told me that by the year 2016 the world would be okay with being under surveillance every moment of their live...

I would have told them they were crazy.

Where will this man end up?

A. In the Water
B. On the door
C. On another rock across the water.
D. Getting an ostrich up his ass.


Many years ago I had a student whose mother worked at the factory that made tape like that. She used to bring me rejects or end cuts ranging in width from 1/8" to two inches. She was a godsend.


Those are shoes that used be for sale, but were discontinued. Now the demand is back and their have been re-shelved. That's a good thing.




Roe v Wade is my favorite bitter controversy about the best way to cross a small river.


This is what it looks like when you gargle...

How to freak out your grandma...

I had never seen one of those before, then on another site the same day I saw this...

But what the fuck in on the floor behind her?!

I just love Hester Prynne. I mean, as literary characters go, she gets an 'A.'


B. On the door

Cruise ship in a storm fun...

Didn't spill much of his drink.

"Florida Man" is an internet sensation.

He even has his own beer.

More creative use of pennies...

One of the funniest murals I've ever seen...

I wonder how long they allowed that to stay up.

I wonder what the advantages come from this technique...

I am impressed! You think they partially cut all those trees first?

This is the most Australian thing you will watch today.

That goes against everything I teach about firearm safety.

An oldie but goodie...

Me: How long are you going to keep throwing that in my face?
Netflix: Because you watched "The Wedding Planner."


In my opinion there is no difference between that and "holy water."
But if you want to show god he is, in fact, your master, then this advice is key...

The people who have actually read his book can't really argue with this...

Mmmm, I'm sorry but that Wendys mural is not a real painting, as you can see from this example: http://u1.photofunia.com/2/results/q/v/qvGJeCmQrWysIAMBEPJTrw_r.jpg

There's an online tool where you can upload any picture: http://photofunia.com/effects/art-on-the-brick-wall

Btw, I'm proud of your daughter even if I don't know her or what she discovered, but anyways, the world needs a lot more people like her!
