One Of My Very Own...

Do you spend a lot of time on the toilet playing with your phone? You may want to Google:
Prolonged toilet sitting - hemorrhoids.
Trust me on this one.
EU court has ruled that is is permissible for companies to prohibit all "the wearing of all visible political, philosophical or religious sign." That means not only no Jewish skull caps and Muslim head scarves, but also no Pastafarian colanders. Bummer, that.
Sure, charter schools brag about a 97% graduation rates in their high school, but a new study highlights those graduates dismal college performance. It's called dumbing down the test and giving credit for merely showing up to class.
I'm just waiting for Wikileaks to hack Trump's tax returns.
Clean water reaches Aleppo for the first time in months after Syrian Army expelled ISIS from pumping facility on the Euphrates.
Starting from the top left corner, each pixel represent a decimal of Pi. Each digit had been assigned a color: 0 = white, 1 = teal, 2 = blue, 3= pink, 4= green, 5= orange, 6= red, 7= yellow, 8= grey, 9= black, except the second pixel representing the decimal point which is white.
Contact, the Carl Sagan book, had this very thing as a conclusion. They were told all the answers to everything were coded in pie. So they set up computers to run the numbers in binary code and after a long time and image of a perfect zero formed by the configuration of the ones and zeros scrolled up the screen.
"Lampoon a buffoon" is a wonderful phrase.
Here is the problem in a nutshell, written by a very entertaining young man:
The Queen just found out Scotland is scheduling another vote on independence. (true)
You know that feeling when you meet someone and your heart skips a beat? Yeah, well, that's arrhythmia and you can die from that.
"Survival of the Fattest"
A visual symbol of imbalanced wealth distribution.
Here's a couple of more, but I don't know if it's by the same person.
This one is a visualization of depression.
Now some miscellaneous.
Doors in Paris that lead to other European cities.
This is beyond marvelous.
I close the door when I masturbate so my house is still warm when I go back inside.
DR. HENRY'S SCIENCE EXPLAINER
I never knew it was that...fluid.
So, what happens if you draw a square? Are the angles less or more than 90 degrees.
Just another example of shit being credited to religion when it could have been their equivalent to our football stadium
Read an article about all the stuff you can grow yourself from throwaway leftovers of fruits and vegetables.
One guy wrote in to say he did the above and ended up with 50 or 60 tomato plants...which was far too many for home use.
There are just such dumps all over the world.
And now, finally, we are coming up with many re-uses for old tires.
That's also a very nice photograph.
Falcon 9 first stage returning home.
I will never tire of watching that.
In the Who Gives A Shit department, those nukes I worked on were called Falcons.
Clint Eastwood is an anagram for Old West Action.
Oh, look, somebody agrees with me...
And if you had watched the conversation with Kaitlyn Jenner, so does she.
I'm self conscious about my windshield wiper speed when it's raining, like I must watch other cars to make sure I'm not being too dramatic.
VERTEBRATES DOING THINGS WITH THEIR VERTEBRAE
Yes, in Rome there is a sculpture of a man sucking his own dick.
And we wonder why the empire collapsed.

FINDING ALTAMIRA - THE MOVIE
It starred two of the most beautiful people in filmdom.
It concerns the discovery of the most famous Paleolithic cave ever found.
At one point they recreate the guy placing his hand inside that of the ancient artist...
And I gasped aloud. Nothing could please me more than to do that.
A major conflict in the movie was between the Catholic Church and the scientists.
He answered that the two could, in fact, coexist if religion would just top refusing to accept facts.
But there were major problems getting the scientific community to believe the find. For one, the cave had been complete sealed for thousands of years due to a landslide and the walls were damp. The paint was thus still wet, which I personally would have found suspicious.
But then a local artist was sent down to paint recreations on paper and while down there he attempted to show a young child the caveman's technique.
Then when the experts went into the cave they found the paint laden fur and stick implements the child had used; assumed the local artist/teacher had painted the whole thing; and proclaimed it a complete fraud.
Well worth watching.

PEOPLE OF NOTE
Sue Klebold, mother of Columbine Shooter Dylan Klebold goes on Ted talks to apologize and talk about how she was unaware of her son's mental illness and how parents can prevent school shootings.
How very, very sad.
I go on Russian nude webcam sites just to hear Russian models say "We're going to make big trouble for Moose and Squirrel" like Natasha from Rocky and Bullwinkle.
Ever notice that all the holy artifacts from religions are just...lost?
The fragments of the original tablets CARVED BY GOD! The golden tablets that god gave to that Smith guy...lost. All of the bodies of the holy men.
Makes one think doesn't it?
