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 beer...but I love my wife. This blog is observations from a funny old man who gets pissed off every once in a while.

How clever.



THINGS WE MIGHT WANT TO WORRY ABOUT

People everywhere are concerned about deforstation.
Depleting the rain forest should be stopped, of course, but here in America the lumber and paper companies plant more trees than they cut. The only reason they clear cut huge sections of the forest is because that facilitates regrowth faster than selective clearing...cutting some, leaving others standing.

If you want to save trees, maybe we ought to address wood stoves.

===
People say that we have turned into a lawless society.
It's been proven that we live in the LEAST lawless time in hour history. But our prisons are full because we are over-criminalized with fucks like this guy passing laws to fill our prisons. 

===
I'm just going to give you what I was given. You may get back to me on its factualness.
A Mysterious Blob of Hot Rock Is Building Up Under America's Northeast

"An excerpt from Science Alert: Scientists used a network of thousands of seismic measurement devices in the largest geological study of its kind, detecting the enormous blob upwelling under Vermont, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts – and possibly elsewhere. "The upwelling we detected is like a hot air balloon, and we infer that something is rising up through the deeper part of our planet under New England," says geophysicist Vadim Levin from Rutgers University – New Brunswick. Since New England doesn't have any active volcanoes, the huge build-up is thought to be a geologically recent phenomenon, although in this case that means it could have slowly but steadily been growing for tens of millions of years."

Plastic Found In Mussels From The Arctic To China And Enters Human Food

"Tiny bits of plastic are contaminating mussels from the European Arctic to China in a sign of the global spread of ocean pollution that can end up on people's dinner plates. Mussels in apparently pristine Arctic waters had most plastic of any tested along the Norwegian coast, according to a study this month by the Norwegian Institute for Water Research (NIVA). Plastics may be getting swept north by ocean currents and winds from Europe and America, ending up swirling around the Arctic Ocean, NIVA researcher Amy Lusher said. "Microplastics have been found in mussels everywhere scientists have looked.""

Saffron, the most expensive food ingredient in the world.
Well, that explains why I have no idea as to what it tastes like.
But how is it possible that half the world is starving and the other half buys shit like that?

UPDATE
My daughter made me saffron rice and I couldn't taste the saffron at all. None of the people around the table could even tell me what it taste like.

===
Clever, but in that country they may mean it...like cut your leg off for a violation.

===
This is a 3-Car Chain Race. I never knew they existed.
But it's just another of thousands of examples of how we Americans are distracted while we are being robbed blind.
Here's another...
But with a hospitality tax the visitors end up paying for it in the long run...maybe.

A father fights for the justice of what he strongly believes was some very suspicious activity in the North Tower.
Provocative mystery on the day the towers came down.

When will we ever learn?

And not just the US. Ireland's struggle ended with the vision of one man.
When will that type of visionary arrive in the middle east?

Folks, I think we need to start coming to terms with the idea that the rapture happened and only David Bowie and Prince made the cut.

I'M NOT EASILY IMPRESSED, BUT...

This is a clock sold by a site I visit often.
Many image sites make money by selling T-shirt and shit. Maybe I should look into that? Anybody want to purchase one of my key packets?

Let's take a closer look at the business end of that bad boy.

I love people with attitudes like this.

If you don't want to open that in another tab, there's a still to follow.

And that is why most roofs in heavy snow areas are very steep.

Got roommates who steal your liquor? Boy, do I have an idea for you.

AN ATTEMPT AT HUMOR

I wonder if they have Room Service.

===

===
No, that wouldn't do it. Those guys can look you right in the eye while you are shooting at them and STILL take the time to aim more accurately. Paint balls don't prove anything to them.

===
I wrote a book wherein 90% of the people died. When they started grouping up, the first thing they did was find out what skills a new arrival had. It didn't matter what you did, you were given a young person to teach and help you.
I have given this whole notion of our basic stupidity in how things work a lot of thought. That's where the art piece involving a box of huge nails evolved. ie, nobody knows how to make nails.

Why would anyone put those words in that order?

ANIMALS DOING THE MOST EXTRAORDINARY THINGS


Want to play a game?
What is chasing these cyclists?

a. Lion
b. Tiger
c. Bear
d. Ostrich

And knows he doesn't have to bite down.

===
I know this one got fed at the zoo or wherever humans are taking care of him, but in the wild I would think it had a hard time ambushing prey.

===
Holy Shit!

===
He's learned to follow the stream.

===
Those bastards.

d. Ostrich
If you are a long time viewer, you should have seen that coming.

DRIVING ME CRAZY SINCE, OH, FOREVER


Why aren't more companies solving problems like this?

===
Someone posted this idiocy to illustrate how one switch could easily be used.

But I can top that. This is my cable remote. We were having many problems with it so we called for a visit from our cable guy.
After listening but a few seconds he instructed, "NEVER, EVER touch the system off switch."
My wife was all apologetic, but I took another tact. I said, "So you have a button that will screw up the whole thing and YOU PUT IT ON THE TOP LEFT OF THE DEVICE?!?!"

I did that on a diving board one time.

How about this demand?

So, that pic about your remote control with "System off" taped up... I want to know more about the picture of the babe behind you.

That "babe" would be my wife, sir!
