Some kids have awesome parents.
I would like to meet every one of these people.
My friends and I did some dumb things, when we were young, but nothing as stupid as this.
Who pays for their fast food with a credit card?
What the hell? Yes, female skin is distracting to boys, but rather than enforce unfair dress codes, why not deal with the boys who are distracted? If they aren’t able to focus on their studies while girls are in their class, how will they be able to concentrate on their jobs once they enter the work force?
If I were a middle age to older celebrity, I would likely try to take especially good care of myself, since they are dropping like flies, lately. On the other hand, I feel like if I made it to 70 in good health, that would be good enough. I recently heard from one aunt and uncle who are well into their 70’s, and experiencing health issues. No one should have to suffer in their old age. And I certainly would not want to be a burden on anyone, even a stranger in the health care field.

Parks Canada took a giant map of our country to Parliament Hill for Canadian Museums Day, on January 26th.
Desert Island Disc #10.
Africa’s first elephant underpass is now in use.
Exactly. I once worked with a group of people who constantly complained about their jobs, but couldn’t be bothered to lift a finger to make anything better. They spent hours per day on the internet at work, but couldn’t efficiently respond to plant issues. I really liked working there, except for that.
Say WHAT!?? This man, Joseph Fiennes, is who a British TV station considers the best choice to portray Michael Jackson in a biographical movie about the singer. Suddenly I understand the outcry over zero black actors being nominated for an Oscar. If a black man cannot even get hired to play another black man, something is wrong.
The Cassini spacecraft has changed its orbit from its previous equatorial one, to one from which it can better explore Saturn’s moons. This week, it will make observations of the rings.
Astronaut Scott Kelly joined Tumblr last week, to share his photos of the huge snowstorm on the U.S. East coast.
With people doing things like this, it is hardly surprising that there are so many people who doubt that such events as manned lunar landings actually took place.
But, apparently, exactly such a transit actually did occur. And was recorded.
Why are people even giving this fool exposure? While I suppose I am doing the same thing by posting this article, if everyone would just ignore him, he would probably quickly STFU, much as a child who is having a tantrum merely to get attention would, if ignored. Anyone with half a clue should realize the world is round, simply due to the existence of the horizon. And no one seems to miss the extra “o” which this rapper left out of his name.
The Opportunity rover’s mission was originally intended to last 90 days. It recently passed 12 years on Mars.
Some highlights of the mission, so far.
Ed Dwight, the first African American accepted into the Astronaut Program, left the program because of discrimination before ever going into space. Who knows what he might have been capable of? So sad that a career was lost simply because of racism. How can people understand space flight but be unable too see past color?
Volvo claims it will soon manufacture “death proof” vehicles. I am skeptical. A vehicle striking a wall at 100 km/hr is not likely to be survivable.
The Holden Efijy Concept. Rod like.
You may soon be able to buy a brand new DeLorean.
A wise old gentleman retired and purchased a modest home near a junior high school. He spent the first few weeks of his retirement in peace and contentment. Then a new school year began. The very next afternoon three young boys, full of youthful, after-school enthusiasm, came down his street, beating merrily on every trash can they encountered. The crashing percussion continued day after day, until finally the wise old man decided it was time to take some action. The next afternoon, he walked out to meet the young percussionists as they banged their way down the street. Stopping them, he said, “You kids are a lot of fun. I like to see you express your exuberance like that. In fact, I used to do the same thing when I was your age. Will you do me a favor? I’ll give you each a dollar if you’ll promise to come around every day and do your thing.’ The kids were elated and continued to do a bang-up job on the trash cans. After a few days, the old-timer greeted the kids again, but this time he had a sad smile on his face. ‘This recession’s really putting a big dent in my income,’ he told them. ‘From now on, I’ll only be able to pay you 50 cents to beat on the cans.’ The noisemakers were obviously displeased, but they did accept his offer and continued their afternoon ruckus. A few days later, the wily retiree approached them again as they drummed their way down the street. ‘Look,’ he said, ‘I haven’t received my Social Security check yet, so I’m not going to be able to give you more than 25 cents. Will that be okay?’ ‘A lousy quarter?’ the drum leader exclaimed. ‘If you think we’re going to waste our time, beating these cans around for a quarter, you’re nuts! No way, mister. We quit!’ And the old man enjoyed peace.
The new manager walked all around the factory, inspecting his workers, when he came to a room where he saw someone slacking off, leaning against the wall. The manager hid behind a few pipes and watched the employee for 5 minutes. The person didn’t move a muscle, so the manager approached him and ordered him to get into the manager’s office. “What is your name?” Asked the manager. “Steven,” he replied. “And how much do you make in a week?” “I make about 400 dollars.” The manager pulls out 400 and hands it to him. “Here’s this week’s pay, now get out of here and never let me see you again! ”Steven then gets up and goes away. Realizing he needs a replacement, the manager then walks up to a random worker and asks him: “That guy, Steve, who just left, what does he do around here?” “Oh Steve?” Replied the worker, “that’s the pizza delivery man!”
