MONDAY #4184

One Of My Very Own





A friend of mine who had a finely tuned wind chime. Each rod was selected to have a tone compatible with the others. It sounded amazing.
He said it was very expensive...so expensive he wouldn't tell me how much.

This is not this dog's first rodeo...


Thinking outside the box. 

And before you say that's gross just remember that a bunch of people drink their own urine.

Impressive restoration...


The grave of the famous ballet dancer Rudolph Nureyev in the cemetery in Paris. The carpet that covers the tomb is not a carpet, but a tombstone of small mosaics.


That reminds me of the sidewalk I saw that had hundreds - though small - frogs embedded in it.



Did you know most countries make you keep your shirt on during all you can eat ribs night?







I found these rather clever...

Oh, my. 

Ventilation Grid of the Stockholm Metro
Imagine throwing that idea out at a meeting and having it approved! 




For good luck...



That insurance has his back. 


One of the kids just asked for a family game night like we weren’t already fed up with each other enough as it is.



Grizzly Bear Anatomy Simulation


 Water-cooled concrete chainsaw...

Springbok often go into bouts of repeated high leaps up to 6ft 7in and are very fast runners at speed up to 55 mph.
I read that because of the depletion of the predator population these things are thriving. You can buy a pelt for next to nothing. 

An overhead railway train in Japan.
I wonder if that is a retrofit meaning it was added to the bottom of an existing rail line. 

I never understood this ancestor worship. 


Kessler syndrome

Stipa-Caproni with its "intubed propeller" trialed in 1932

I can't figure out where the motor is unless it's that very small thing in the middle.



Why do we always hurt the ones who eat the tater tots I was saving in the freezer?



"Calm down, Honey Bunny." 

I think that the trick is to pull the sword back toward you to create a slicing motion.

Russians; "We will rescue you to death."

If you watch the whole video he gets right back up and continues with the training as if nothing happened.




How very arrogantly stupid.

The gif that keeps on giving...


On the Kalalau Trail on the northern edge of Kauai.

There are a bunch of Americans who would swim there because they have the freedom to do so...think the wearing of masks.


Remember this guy?

Alcohol is a helluva drug.

Fig 1 & 2 dog 10 kg heavier than cat
Fig 3 dog is 17kg, cat is 7kg
Fig 1 cat 7 kg, so rabbit is 3 kg
Fig 2 math checks with dog (17) + rabbit (3)
Fig 4 17kg +7kg +3kg = 27 kg

Just an interesting FYI

Puzzle time:
Rabbit = 3
Cat = 7
Dog = 17

puzzle time: rabbit=3, cat=7, dog=17. 27kg total

The easy solution is to add up the three other cases:

(cat+rabbit)+(dog+rabbit)+(dog+cat)=2dog+2cat+2rabbit = 54 kg

(2dog+2cat+2rabbit)/2 = 54/2 = 27 kg
