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.

TUESDAY #3040

One Of My Very Own...

That was not up to the task on many levels. Here's another.


I Can't Help Falling In Love With you.


MORE TRUMP BASHING




===
LAST EASTER POSTS...I HOPE
When you hear that a rock "rolled" down a hill, do you picture a giant coin shaped piece of stone? Of course not, but nobody said myths had to make sense.

===
My wife and I heard two loud pops in the middle of the night. I told her that they sounded more like the boom of fireworks instead of the crack of gunfire. Boy was I wrong.
The lady next door was away and asked the neighbor who lived over her back fence to keep an eye on her property...and boy, did he ever.
He noticed flashlights moving inside her house and after grabbing his own flashlight, crawled over the fence and was immediately fired on by the robbers. That was about thirty feet from my bedroom window.
The next morning my wife said they had a description of the perp. I said, Don't tell me. Young, black, skinny wearing a hoodie. She asked how I knew. Well, I read the fucking newspaper and it's ALWAYS a skinny black guy (crackhead) wearing a hoodie (to minimize camera ID).
Am I a racist? I just went with the data I have acquired from decades of living in my neighborhood.

===
Then there is this insanity. Heartbroken man coldbloodedly shoots this dear man while live streaming it.
Nobody deserves to die like that.

THINGS I'VE LEARNED RECENTLY


===


I've heard a case made that the US "stole" parts of Mexico in the 1800s. I say we "re-stole" it. Somebody lived on that land when Mexico claimed it. And those "somebodies" took it from other native Americans generations before that.

===
Normal folks can't do that. The system is rigged.

===
I was so hoping that was going to say "When he was conceived."

I may not have been the best dad, but at least my kids know the words to a dozen or so Irish drinking songs. 


ART AND PHOTOGRAPHY

===
Saturn in Infrared.

The Winners Of 2017’s Sony World Photography Contest
^Ly Min, Cambodia National Award

^Carloman Macidiano Cespedes Riojas, Peru National Award

^Emrah Karakos, Turkey National Award
(what do you think those people are doing?)

^Salvatore Mazzeo, Italy National Award

^ Nikunj Rathod, India National Award

^Edina Csoboth, Hungary National Award

Although very nice photographs, the above winners didn't strike me as all that arty. Here, on the other hand, we have very well designed images.

^Lise Johansson, Denmark National Award

^Jelena Jankovic, Serbia National Award

^Francisco Ubilla, Chile National Award

When people called Obama "divisive" that means black. Like how "New York values" means Jewish.


THINGS GOING WRONG AND/OR FIXING THINGS THAT WENT WRONG


===

===
The shipwreck "Sewol" arriving in South Korea after being pulled up from the ocean floor where it sank in 2014.
Damn!
That doesn't look like a salvage/scrap yard. You think they will attempt to refloat her?

===
Youtube prankster gets smacked.
His prank is to approach women with a fake lock of hair and scissors and pretend he cut their hair off.
I didn't even know a human head could do that.

===
I stood up to a bully in the third grade. He kicked my ass, but he never messed with me again.

===
I've seen this a thousand times.
Those milk bottles were delivered right to your door. They were kept cool on the truck with ice. The "stopper" in the top was cardboard with a little pop-up tab to assist in full removal. Well, many times the stopper would get damp and the little pop-up would rip off. A knife should be used to pry the stopper off, but most people were in a hurry and just tried to push the stopped down into the bottle. That worked well unless the bottle was filled to the very top, then it exploded as above.

===
Notice hot shell casing bouncing off his lips.
If I'm not mistaken, that is the right handed version that would eject casings away from the face.

===
There are those who will call me a racist for stating a fact. Why is that?
Restated: Black people don't kill people, poor people in the inner city kill people.

===

===
They make it look so simple, don't they.
Sleep area my ass. For me it would be more like cry my eyes out/scream in terror area.

===
But if you just lifted the bottle faster, wouldn't that solve the problem. My box wine never drips like that.

===

Within days Oregon DOT blasted it into manageable chunks.
I'm impressed.

===
I bet they strip it to reduce the weight.
I once read that each year 50 tons of paint is added to each aircraft carrier. That's over one fully loaded semi-tractor trailer.

===
Model to show how earthquake dampeners work on building structures.
I like the idea to hang a giant pendulum down the middle of the skycraper.

===
Such silliness.

===
I used to teach outside often. Even small children like a break from tradition sit down and shut up.
One of the lessons was to show how when something is farther away it gets higher on the picture plane. You almost have to go outside for that. For example:
Most, if not all children, draw houses sitting on the very bottom of the paper. I let them all do that then asked them to add a swimming pool. Then I told them that they had left out the whole earth...the dirt. Then by raising the bottom of the house a couple of inches, there was room for pools, sidewalks, etc.

===
I've been preaching about this for years.

I wasn't very satisfied with this post so I went out and found some weird stuff to add to it.


===
Human creativity at its finest.

For April Fool's this year, Reddit created a 1024x1024 canvas to which users could add one pixel at a time at 5 minute intervals. It was called r/Place and has ended.
This is a triumph of co-operation!

===
I have done hundreds of DIY projects around my house.
But even I have never been stupid enough to attempt this.

===
I think I've posted this before.
That had to hurt like hell.

===
This woman is an iron worker.

My wife used to really enjoy staying at hotels. Of course, that was before she learned she could fill a bucket with ice at home.
