One Of My Very Own
I WAS WRONG!
"For years I was confused by the locks. I thought it meant that one of the oceans was higher than the other. But I was educated in the South, so..."
Well, come to find out..."Geographically, the oceans that Panama Canal connects with are not at the same level; the Pacific Ocean lies a little higher than the Atlantic Ocean. This difference in the sea level requires ships to get up over the terrain of Panama- up to 26 meters above sea level- in order to reach the other end of the canal."
One of the biggest sickos in history was the guy who coined the phrase “there’s more than one way to skin a cat.”
*That has nothing to do with the discussion I just thought it a cool ass thing to say.
As mentioned prior, my hygiene has taken a hiatus. An upside is that I have far, far less laundry to deal with.
I once had a commenter tell me that the mega-wealthy should be allowed to keep their money since they earned it and followed all the tax laws.
But they also have the cash to elect politicians who will write the laws that allow them to keep more and more of their money. The rich simply aren't playing by the same rules as you and me.
Me and you: "Can we deduct my groceries?"
Rich people: Can we deduct my yacht?"
How about fall in love, raise wonderful kids, help others in need, learn from your mistakes, meet interesting people, read great books, write books, try to live long enough to have a grandchild, marvel at the Earth's beauty, have lots of dogs, etc?
Please don't be a contrarian on life.

Imagine how exciting the Tour de France would be if they made it full contact.
THE MILDLY RISIBLE
But I still read the whole thing and smiled...again.
The problem with onesies...
Think of how seldom characters in movies go to the bathroom. And the only time I can remember that actually making a contribution to the plot was
How to drastically trim your production budget...
The trenches were zigzag so a bomb or enemy gunner couldn't kill every man in the trench.
When built Titanic was the largest moving object on Earth.
I think today that would be the International Space Station.
Idiot misses plane, so she says there's a bomb on board
She's late to the gate, so she says there's a bomb in her checked luggage on the plane. Oh sure, they'll just bring the plane back and let her on? She won't have to worry about this again.
Motor removal changed the center of balance.
Devils Tower, the first National Monument in the United States
I like a magnetized tip on all my screwdrivers and screwdriver bits.
Parkour from the past
It was well into the second year of isolation...
You think the cat is being a hero. I think he is just being his usual asshole self and accidentally saved the kid.
This guy bought a toolbox and tools, and found GOLD!
And here are but a small portion of what he found inside.
One of my few trips to Walmart was to buy a small case to transport the needed tools for indoor projects. I found this perfect case in an aisle display but it was $18 which I thought was a little high.
But after looking around and finding nothing better I pulled one down from the stack and discovered that for that $18 it was filled with a hammer, several pliers, a level, a set of screwdrivers, and a tape measure.
HOW SMART ARE YOU REALLY?
To paraphrase the Gov. of Mississippi:
"Biden isn't trying to save lives. He's just trying to expand the reach of the federal government."
Does anybody actually believe that?
If Mississippi was a country they would have deaths per capita from covid SECOND only to Peru - the world leader.
Whatever happened to American's knack for getting yourself a Plan B if your Plan A isn't working? Well, it is painfully obvious that Mississippi's Plan A is a dismal failure.
And by the way, I don't give a flying fuck if he is a Republican or Democrat. You show me a Democrat that has mismanaged the pandemic this badly and I'll gladly crawl up his ass also.
It works best if the put the flashlight on the floor and shine it horizontally.
Here's another older one...
Another job for the new guy.
A few of the hundreds of schools in which I directed students in the painting of a mural.
The students brought in family photos for this one.
I'm not the only one to use ultra-high contrast in creating a mural that is so easy that a child could do it. These murals...
...were on the back wall of the gym where Marty McFly was attempting to audition for a talent show in Back To The Future.
