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.

My electrician was scheduled to come to my home so I put on pants. Now he canceled and here I am sitting around looking stupid with pants on in my own home.



There must be a type of soil that requires this type of plow.

My blog host refused to accept images which, of course, scared the holy shit out of me. I had also lost my preview and couldn't drag and drop images to my desktop and Restart was nonresponsive. So, I got up the nerve to mash that little button, and when it rebooted every single problem was alleviated.


I ain't shit for remembering names but I can remember faces forever. I match up obscure actors from one movie to another all the time.


Ememen is an artist in Lyon, France who repairs damaged sidewalks with beautiful mosaic tiles.

I once created a huge mosaic of people laying on the beach and the towels all had a different pattern like that.

Note: I would love to show you a picture of that mosaic but back then I only took slides. I have thousands and thousands of slides and very few photographs. One day I want to get a converter but that will have to wait.


Dress for the slide, not the ride.

The average volume of the ejaculation of a wild boar is 500-1000ml.



I do stuff like this all the time. 

Watching people do things, I mean.

I would be the guy in the red shirt who keeps picking his nose.


A fisherman never notices the fever of rays passing behind him.

"Fever" of rays.


A truck slowly makes its way across the extremely narrow bridge over the Vitim River in  Zabaykalsky Krai, Russia.

This was like a 5-minute video and nothing happened...it just chugged along with nary an incident.


Norwegian Constitution Day

I almost put that in the next section...for reasons that will become obvious.



The same headlines every week:

- police shoot an unarmed black man

- mass shooter bought guns legally

- super-rich men made lots more money

My wife asked me if I wanted leftover pizza that had been in the fridge for a while...

Amen, sister.


Can I assume that's one political party?
