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...

EMAIL: ralph.henry.at.folio.olio@gmail.com

Europe's and Russia's new satellite at Mars has sent back its first images of the planet.

Another picture of the NZ earthquake...

Brazilian football (soccer) team Chapecoense's plane crashed killing the entire team with the exception of these 3 players who missed the flight. The team was traveling to play in the final of the Copa Sudamericana. Their opponents in that game Atletico Nacional have asked if they can award Chapecoense with the championship.


Hyperinflation in Venezuela - merchants are weighing, not counting, currency

Meanwhile at Ohio State...

When I asked for my wife’s hand in marriage, I didn’t realize how often I’d just get the finger.


An opinion without 3.14 is an onion.

Daisy: Hi, how are you?
Gatsby: Great.

Prison populations...

The Onion is struggling to satirize the election that is so absurd it can only be called "self-satirizing."

Yes, I believe that a woman has a right to choose.

But we are under no obligation to abide by her wishes.

Then there was that time when one of my forth graders asked me what fisting was.

And I decide a demonstration is called for.

This is how a Luger works.

It does exactly what this .45d does but without all that extra weight in the front.

See anything odd here?

And don't call it a trick. It's an illusion. Tricks are something whores do for money...or kids do for candy.

Something to think about...

I just want the toy, Ms. Cat, please don't hurt me.

Turn in you Dog Card, pooch, you are a disgrace.

Can you cut someone's tongue out without killing them.


In japan there's a museum for rocks that look like faces.

Some better than others.

Now I can die happy.

I would very much like to know the results of this...

For years this drain collected metals and stones that would otherwise have washed down the drain of a sink at a jeweler's. The guy guesses it will contain around 5 - 6 DWT. of gold.

Speaking of...

Nuclear Reactor being forged...

Straight through and so fine it doesn't leak. Dayum!

Goblin Valley, Utah.

Kind of looks like chessmen don't it?

I know it's a repost, but the speed of the shock wave alone warrants another viewing...

I tried to load this a couple of weeks ago, but it was too big. Now it works. Go figure.

Remember, whatever fun game you invent for your kids, you're going to have to play it 10,000 times.


I did that. It told me I could make a few people a little sick and/or very drunk.

My wife asked me how to spell innuendo. I told her innuendo doesn't work if you have to spell it out.


I don't trust anyone enough to do that with them...

It's not that I think somebody would let go on purpose, but fingers do slip.

Oh, I see how that works...

You wait until the squirrel eats the mouse, then you eat the squirrel.

Then there's the absolute head of the food chain...

The neatest shit you'll see all minute.

How many assholes does it take to change a lightbulb?

And he....

Trots away rather jauntily.

I know that have been doing this for hundreds of years...

But you would think the terrestrial fire risk would forbid it.

Okay, the knife is super sharp. We get it.

But, damn it, George, you don't have to shave half your goddamn leg to prove it.

Then there's this guy who PAID somebody to shave the hair from his back.

Who could be that pussy-whipped?

I don't even agree with this...

Don't do that for a blowjob. Then you marry the bitch and y'all have a little girl and your wife teaches her to demand that her boyfriend shave his ballsack and the degrading deforestation multiplies exponentially. Pretty soon the world is full of sissy ass men who allowed themselves to be used by the devil spawn women.

I post anything Ralph.

Lastly is this classic...

Question: The driver of that car didn't see BUILDING rushing at him sooner than that? Go back and look at it. Several houses have already ROUNDED THE CORNER before he decides to even stop.

I had a dream that I was taking an exam that I hadn't prepared for, then realized in dream that I'm actually a 70 years old man, so I got up and walked out of the classroom.

Regarding your question about pipelines and leaking, all pipelines leak. They leak on day one. Not all weld joints in the pipes are perfect. Seismic activity is ubiquitous and will further open weld faults. Petrochemicals are corrosive and over time will further open weld faults and eventually corrode through the pipe walls themselves. These degradations will be rare initially, but their effects are insidious.

Petrochemical leakage from pipelines are a part of the tainting of all of our ground water. Even the great eastern aquifer, a great underground river thousands of feet deep running from the southern Appalachians to the Gulf of Mexico through limestone, is tainted with petrochemical poison. I drink it daily from a thousand foot well in Northern Florida.

This is the devil's bargain that we have made for our modern comfort. We will live with it for a thousand years after oil becomes nothing but a geological oddity. That transition from national blood to oddity is already occurring. Specifically, the oil to be carried by this pipeline is not needed. It is not to be used to fuel Florida, or even the Sioux reservation, but to sold by Canadians to the Chinese for money. You can make an argument for the jobs in transporting that oil, but it is akin to the argument for not fighting the Nazis to protect death camp guard jobs.

Surely, in this case, we can stop some - even if it is just a little - of the inevitable world poison from this pipeline. That is what the Sioux and their supporters are doing. I think they deserve our support, even if their success will only be symbolic.

Don, I would like to thank you very much for your extraordinarily well written, well reasoned comments. Keep up the good work and I mean that sincerely.

Ninja Grrrl said...

This is why I always go back and read the comments. Thank you, Mr. Quixote.

But yes, I agree. Don's letter was worthy of all our praise.

Another interesting comment about pipelines...
When tea leaves began to read that the Keystone pipeline was not going to be approved several years ago, Berkshire Hathaway (i.e., Warren Buffet) purchased the Burlington and Santa Fe railroad (a major American Plains railroad) and many, many oil tank cars. The oil still makes its way through the plain states, except by railroad rather than pipeline. Buffet got richer (there were a lot of Obama/Buffet insider rumors at the time). The pipeline did not get built, the oil moved less efficiently, and the country assumed different risks, but most people didn't notice, because to them it was only "stop the pipeline". Today, many years later, you still see 100's of brand new oil tankers rolling through Minnesota and North Dakota.
Tank cars also present risk, just ask Lac Megantic, PQ.
