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.

I FIND HUMANS THE FUNNIEST SPECIES ON THE PLANET

Before my surgery in the 1800s, the doctor offered to use knockout gas or whack his patients over the head with a canoe paddle. It was an ether/oar situation.

I watched a grown man play a video game on his phone.
Me: Why did you jump on a turtle?
Him: Because I'm a plumber.


HUMANS ARE ALSO CREATIVE

My grandmother had a stove kind of like this one.
My grandfather had it refitted with natural gas, which meant they didn't need the chimney anymore.
So they covered the hole in the wall above the stove with a plate like decorative piece. I asked hundreds of times why the plate was on the wall and was told "To cover up the chimney hole," and I was a grown ass man before I understood what that meant.

This is Vincas Juska, a knygnešys -- "book smuggler" -- one of the brave people who defied Tsar Alexander II's "Temporary Rules for State Junior Schools of the Northwestern Krai" by smuggling books written with Latin characters into Lithuania, defying the ban put into place after the Polish-Lithuanian insurrection of 1863.

I showed this to a few guys at the bar before I decided to post it.

So it has begun.
In a first, an artificial intelligence named Libratus has bested top-tier players at no-limit Texas Hold 'em. This is especially notable because imperfect information games are notoriously challenging to AI programs.

THE NATURAL WORLD

The Sunken Lanes of Europe
Appearing as trenches dredged through the earth or tunnels cleared through forests, these ancient pathways called holloways or sunken lanes are found all across the European countryside. They originally began at the ground level, but over the centuries, under the tread of a million feet and hooves encompassing thousands of journeys, the floor of these roads have worn away and eroded down to the bedrock, creating ditches that lay beneath the level of the surrounding landscape.


With high banks on either side, many of these ancient thoroughfare then became temporary waterways during rains, which further deepened and widened the paths making them permanent features of the landscape. Some of these paths are twenty to thirty feet deep, and look more like gorges than roads.
Just like the Cherokee Trail

How to tell instantly if she's a keeper.

Okay, "technically" that is not a woman, but I had nowhere else to put it.
