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...

Did Donald Trump incite violence when he barked "get them out of here" at protesters who were then roughed up? A judge decided Friday that it's plausible, allowing a lawsuit filed against the president to go to trial.

Scottish premier writing a "Section 30"-letter asking for a vote for Scotland's independence.
Well, I for one hope they get it.

Blog hits doubled in one day.
After it was mentioned in this magazine.

=== 

I suspected as much but had no way to prove it.

After spending 30 minutes explaining the upcoming total solar eclipse to my bartender, see asked, "So, it always happens in the day time?"

This from my daughter about it:
 For first timers, chasing clear skies is worth the effort.  But bring a tent -- I hear that hotels are already booked along the path.

My favorite gender neutral pronouns is comrade.


SOME THINGS OF WHICH WE HUMANS 
ARE CAPABLE

I find it amazing that we nurture and educate our offspring for close to two decades.
Oh, and also we humans make meat taste great!

===
We are so good at figuring out a way to survive in just about every environment.
Forget outer space, look at those boots! The little valve on the ankle allows the wearer to inflate it with air. The air buffer between the outer shoe and the inner shoe will keep your feet toasty in minus any temperature.

===
It's a Volvo.
I showed you a test track demonstration of that braking system, but now a real world life saver.

===
You know how I feel about good bread...
We (the world) produce more than enough food to feed all the billions of people , but the problem is waste and distribution...two very solvable problems...let's hope.

===
Landing a Boeing 737 in high wind.
I had no idea the pilot had to struggle so. I find that terrifying. 

===
Building a Leonardo da Vinci Bridge
You really do need to watch how this is done. I'm thinking it would be a perfect emergency frame for shelter out in the wild. No nails, no rope, no wire...no nothing but wood, of which the forest has an abundance.

===
Ski Jumping New World Record - Stefan Kraft jumps 831.69 feet.
I think he went so far that he landed on the flat part.

===
Seattle tunnel.
If that doesn't impress you, you are unimpressable.

MISTAKES WERE MADE

They got rid of them when people started using them to compete for highest reading.

The "Park wherever the fuck you want" button.

To repeat: Only break one law at a time.

Giving head; a variation.
They call her Dumbledore because she's the headmaster.

This is some Florida Man level idiocy.

As absolutely awful nuclear weapons are, they ended the whole notion of "world war."
Now we have little regional wars like what is happening in the Ukraine.
Don't believe me?
Did you notice there is no markings on the vehicles?

And here's all the UN does about the naked aggression.

Do you remember what happened when North Korea invaded South Korea? The whole UN acted to push them back to the border. Now not so much.

I can actual understand the rationale behind what's going on in Syria. The Syrians rebelled. That happens many times when a blood thirsty dictator abuses his citizens.

Aleppo, before and after.
I don't like it, but I understand it.

But what Russia is doing in The Ukraine is just naked aggression.

Speaking of good guys and bad guys in war:
This is Hugh Thompson, Jr. and Larry Colburn.
These two men, a helicopter pilot and his door gunner, are true American heroes who, in the midst of the incident known as the My Lai Massacre, risked their lives and careers to stop their fellow soldiers from murdering helpless civilians, March 16, 1968. On the anniversary one of the darkest days in US military history they remind us that we each must act when we see wrong being done.
RH: But how many other times do mass murder occur and there was no helicopter?

===
American penitentiaries, in idealized Quaker imaginings, were to be a place for reflective penitence followed by forgiveness. That's not how it worked out, especially for the poor.

I did not agree with all the points the above demonstration made. Take, for instance, this prick.

If you think about it just right, fat people are 'skinnier' than thin people.


THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE


Really?

===
I would have had it read: "Besides that, how was the prom?"

===
Claiming that you occupy the high ground does not mean you, in fact, occupy the high ground. Passion no more makes you correct than it does for the KKK.

People are losing the spirit of the Ides of March. It's not about just stabbing, it's about coming together to stab in groups.


SHIT YOU DON'T SEE EVERY DAMN DAY

North Korean Soldier in comparison to South Korean and American Soldier. 
The importance of diet in one image.

Balanced Rock (AKA Tabletop Rock), Hocking Hills State Park, Ohio

Speaking of things found in the woods...
This is obelisk or stone pillar from 14th century. Some say it was made by King Trvrtko I Kotromanić, first king of Bosnia in the place he was wounded by a boar while hunting, and as you can see there is something similar to boar.

Most of you have never seen a Valentine Parade in the deep South...

Yeah, I follow my diet but my diet doesn't follow back.
