I'm an artist, educator, militant anti-theist , and I write. I gamble on just about anything. And I like beer...but I love my wife. This blog contains observations from a funny old man who gets pissed off every once in a while.

 One Of My Very Own


EMAIL: ralh.henry.at.folio.olio@gmail.com



It is required that toy boxes have closures to keep the lid from falling down on the child. I put two of the normal closures but the lid was too heavy. 

Then I put a pneumatic closure on the middle brace. Now it stays up and when closed eases itself down.

My wife helped me carry it inside. I positioned it so that I have a view of it no matter how I enter the room.

BTW It is very heavy.



I put that in the wrong blog post and now you have the ending before you are due to be shown the how. Oh well.



I love America but it is far from reaching its full potential. We can do better is all I'm saying.




This is what you build when your goal is to be able to say a year later that bike lanes don't work.


I don't know very much about that but fuck the CCP anyway.



Read that again.



It's not only the state-sanctioned murder of one of its citizens it's also been proven that the death penalty does not deter murder.






The longest drum solo was 10 hours and 26 minutes and was performed by the child sitting behind me on United flight 964 from Atlanta to Paris.





Now, that is a Ford lover!






That last one illustrates a common error when children draw faces - they ignore the forehead.

The fix is simple. Just have them look at a face or picture of a face and draw the forehead first. Notice that it covers half the face.




I accidentally closed a browser with 43+ tabs open. This must be what the scholars of Alexandria felt when their library burned.



Hairah Connor?


I asked a repair plumber what his worst call was and he said there was an old woman whose toilet drain had become dislodged years ago and raw sewage filled the crawl space. He told her he couldn't fix it.


In the South, we actually eat these.

Mudbugs, crawdads, crawfish, country boy lobster.

The tiny morsel of edible meat that a crawfish produces is located in its tail. When you're attending a crawfish boil or eating a pile of mudbugs at a restaurant, many people just pinch off the tail, squeeze out the meat, and eat it, leaving the crawfish head behind.

Do you eat the poop in crawfish?

Nothing wrong with it. I take it out most of the time, but I do eat some. That being said, most people who are disgusted about people eating crawfish poop line will still eat the poop line of boiled shrimp.

But the diehard fans do it differently.

When you suck on the crawfish head after eating the tail, the crawfish experience becomes truly transcendent. “The moisture and the flavor are all in the head,” says Underbelly and One Fifth chef Chris Shepherd. “Yes, the tail is the meat, but the head is the essence of life.”

*He's talking about sucking out the guts.



No Photoshop

Do you want to guess what you are looking at?







Here's a couple of hints from comments...

"Be one with the wall."

 "If not for the word "wall" in your comment I would have no idea what I'm looking at."








I posted this a while back and wondered if they were all painted that way. I got no reply but then I noticed something worth discussing.

Notice that the brush stays stationary as he rotates the ball under it.


I used to carve knives out of wood when I was a teenager.


I have mixed feelings about reading a book with a view like that.


Really? Why don't you film me doing something totally embarrassing and then show it to the whole world?


That's why you must cover up the overflow drain.


Anybody want to try and explain that to me?


Their Friday happy dance...

School teachers do shit like that all the time.


I'm assuming he missed the wire.



Threw out my back sleeping and tweaked my neck sneezing so I'm just one strong fart away from complete paralysis.



"I've made a huge mistake."


Think of all the animals that lack the dexterity to scratch themselves. That must be maddening.


Its murder gene is all-powerful.



Is it protecting his girlfriend or his diner?


He likes things to be neat and tidy.


These vicious little bastards are wreaking havoc across the whole country.

And remember, they are not wildlife. They were domesticated hogs since gone wild.

And then there's this lady...


Yeah, I hate when that happens to me also.


Did you notice how it looks like those last two talked about it and decided to go in tandem?



It's called absurdity and I embrace it.


Replacement teeth not included.




I also believe that thinking that  Earth is the only planet with intelligent life - just because we happened to be born here - is an arrogance I can't condone.


Did you notice the brief eyes to the sky second he realizes that this job just ain't worth it?

Inspired by the notecard one liner:

"Mummy - why is the sky blue?"

"That's because of all the horses Sarah."

(A6) Americans mine the ore, barge it to China, they smelter it, package it and barge it back to us. We are part of the problem. I agree, fuck the ccp.

D3: Any Vegetarians and Vegans that own Cats need to SERIOUSLY reassess their Values. Cats should be either culled or made to wear bells. HEAVY bells. Little Fuckers! AND they shit in my Garden. Lol :)

Puzzle time: Do you know how many seven letter words can be made with those letters? 1.7% of all words!

Would really love to see one solve this.

C12: this looks a lot like a cardboard boat Derby. I have participated in many and witnessed even more. I have seen the participants continue to paddle even when the boat is under water. This looks a whole lot like that.

C11: it's not an overflow drain. It's a vent hole to allow the water to go down the drain easily. Think of it as an old Coors beer can-that second hole that you pressed. That's what that is.
True it does let water bypass the drain if it overflows. But that was not the initial intent.

Dear C11, so what do you call it?
