I am among those who believes that a criminal, ANY criminal, should never be allowed to profit from their crimes. especially when that profit is made from prison, through telling the story of the commission of their crimes. And this is most definitely true for a murderer. I don’t care one bit about the details of this man’s acts. If he wants to tell someone about it, provide him with a psychiatrist, who might be able to figure out how to prevent it from happening again. And I think there should be an investigation into how the book manuscript got from the prison to the publisher, with charges being laid, if any rules or laws were broken.
Update: The book has been taken off of Amazon’s sales list, and it was discovered how it had made its way to the publisher.
Black water coming from my taps would certainly be concerning, but my biggest worry would be the fact that every public official in my community but one is facing criminal charges. What, did one person get elected, then tell all their friends “You’ll never believe what I can get away with, at work” ?
Remember the question I asked, in my last post, about this incident? I will have to monitor this article, to see if there are any comments, because WHOO BOY! a lot of people did not like my question one little bit.
Update: A couple of days later, there were 3 comments similar to the ones I had received, and one reply to them which seemed to get the point that I, and the FOD author were trying to make.
I’ll just leave this here. Want to really “make America great again”? Do something positive about this. The Bahamas having such a high ratio of gun deaths really surprised me. And the placing of my own country, Canada, saddened me. So much for this being such a supposedly friendly country.
A pyroclastic flow is a fast-moving current of hot gas and rock which reaches speeds moving away from a volcano of up to 700 km/h (450 mph). The gas can reach temperatures of about 1,000 °C (1,830 °F). This is footage of pyroclastic flow in Japan, in 1991.
Until today, I had never heard of steam devils.
Looks like a balloon, right? Actually it is a wood sculpture, made by Dan Webb. He also works in other media.

This pretty much sums up my opinion of the art world, and all of the pretentious people in it.
Dude built a radio controlled garbage bin, and pranked the neighborhood with it.
Great idea! Useful, and very inexpensive. I have signed up for one.
I think that watching this video will anger most anyone who has ever had to purchase a replacement rechargeable battery pack. The fact that it is specifically designed to deceive only makes the knowledge more hurtful.
Hmmm….I wonder what Beyoncé and Taylor Swift will be doing when they are 83. Perhaps that is an unfair comparison. I can easily see Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert still writing and singing at 83.
A lot of people don’t consider Phil Collins much of a musician. If you are one of them, please listen to this, and see if you change your mind. I think it is a great song. I just happened to run across this video, posted on one of the sites I follow. Listening to it turned up loud, on headphones, was great.
Ever wonder why Boeing aircraft model numbers always begin and end with a 7?
Scientists have developed a method of turning water into a material that can be cut and shaped.
How good are you at reading peoples’ emotions from looking at their eyes? My score was 29 out of 36, which is at the high end of average.
Pup is a pretty darn good goal tender.
Yeah, well, it would be easy for me to “chill”, too, if I was able to make millions per year for doing sweet fuck all. It seems like the ultimate in self-absorption to wear a jacket with your own picture on it, though. Which is something I might also do if I could make millions for doing sweet fuck all.
The relative sizes of the various nuclear weapons that have been detonated on Earth. YIKES! Good thing no one pissed off Russia while they had the Tsar bomb. That baby would eliminate a sizeable portion of a country.
Smokers are some of the rudest, least thoughtful people on Earth. If you want to practice your habit, that is up to you, but don’t feel you have the right to interfere in other peoples’ lives as well. The fact that this seems to have aired on “Tru” TV makes me suspicious that it was scripted, but it illustrates my point.
Two materials developed by scientists for use in space have been combined to create a very lightweight, yet extremely effective winter clothing insulation .
If you are like me, and love watching the Earth go by, follow the link to see it in HD, as filmed from the ISS. Be sure to look for the double arrow in the lower right, which will switch to full screen view. Unfortunately, the feed is not broadcast when the ISS is on Earth’s night side. While in regular view, you can scroll down and find out which part of the Earth you are viewing. I like this real time view a lot better than the timelapse videos where the ground speeds by.
Interesting theory about a potential layer of meteorites below the ice in Antarctica.
PBS will premiere a special about Scott’s mission on March 2nd. So you know where I will be at that time.
Scott had a bit of fun, before he left, when he dressed up in a gorilla suit, and chased a very surprised fellow astronaut Tim Peake around the space station.
This is how the solar panels on the Russian MIR spacecraft looked, shortly before it was decommissioned. Remember that this damage was created by space debris (meteorites, etc.) traveling at around 25,000 miles per hour.
Two priests are out driving one day when they get pulled over by a police officer. The cop approaches the priests’ vehicle and says to the driver, “Sorry to pull you over father, but we’re looking for a couple of child molesters.” The two priests look at each other for a few moments and have a few quiet words to each other. The driver turns back to the cop and says; “Alright officer, we’ll do it.”
At 85 years of age, Morris marries LouAnne. She’s a lovely twenty-five-year-old. Since her new husband is so old, LouAnne decides that, after their wedding, she and Morris should have separate bedrooms, because she is concerned that her new, but aged husband may overexert himself if they spend the entire night together. After the wedding festivities LouAnne prepares herself for bed, and the expected knock on the door. Sure enough, the knock comes; the door opens and there is Morris, her 85-year-old groom, ready for action. They unite as one. All goes well; Morris takes leave of his bride, and she prepares to go to sleep. After a few minutes, LouAnne hears another knock on her bedroom door, and it’s Morris. Again, he is ready for action. Somewhat surprised, but nonetheless willing, LouAnne consents to more conjugal bliss. When the love-birds are done, Morris kisses his bride, bids her a fond goodnight and leaves. She is set to go to sleep again, but Morris is back again — rapping on the door, as fresh as a twenty-five-year old. ready for more passion! Once again, they enjoy one another. As Morris prepares to leave again, his young bride says to him: “I am thoroughly impressed that — at your age — you can perform so well, and so often! I have been with guys less than a THIRD of your age who were only good ONCE. You are truly a great lover, Morris.” Morris, somewhat embarrassed, turns to LouAnne and replies: “You mean I was here already?”
“Kids? It’s like living with homeless people. They’re cute but they just chase you around all day long going, ‘Can I have a dollar? I’m missing a shoe! I need a ride!'” –Kathleen Madigan

“MAC Cosmetics is launching a line of makeup that’s inspired by the new live-action ‘Cinderella’ movie. Because what girl doesn’t want makeup inspired by a story where the woman turns into an ugly loser at midnight? ” -Jimmy Fallon
“The Kardashian family has signed a deal keeping them on the air for four more years and paying them $100 million. So let that be a lesson. If you really work hard and apply yourself, you are wasting your time.” -Seth Meyers
This should at least partially make up for all of the other blonde jokes I publish.
A lawyer boarded an airplane in New Orleans with a box of frozen crabs and asked a blonde flight attendant take care of them for him. She took the box and promised to put it in the crew’s refrigerator. He advised her that he was holding her personally responsible for them staying frozen, mentioning in an arrogant manner that he was a lawyer, and threatened what would happen to her if she let them thaw out. Shortly before landing in New York, she used the intercom to announce to the entire cabin, “Would the lawyer who gave me the crabs in New Orleans, please raise your hand?” Not one hand went up … so she took them home and ate them. There are two lessons here: 1. Lawyers aren’t as smart as they think they are. 2. Blondes aren’t as dumb as most folks think.
A gorilla is walking through the jungle. He parts the bushes by the watering hole and sees a lion taking a drink of water with his butt sticking up in the air. The gorilla thinks to himself that it would be really funny if he snuck up behind the “King of the Jungle” and slipped him the high hard one. So the gorilla sneaks up on his tiptoes behind the lion, grabs him by the hips, and starts fucking him up his ass as hard as he can. Then he runs away, laughing his head off. He thinks it’s the funniest thing he’s ever done in his life. The lion is pissed, and runs after the gorilla. Now, the gorilla can’t run very fast, and the lion keeps getting closer and closer, so the gorilla ducks into an empty safari camp, puts on a set of safari clothes with the pith helmet and everything, picks up a paper, sits down with the paper held up in front of his face, and makes like he’s reading it. Just then, the lion walks in. “Rrroooooaarrrr!!!” he says. “Did you just see a big gorilla run through here?” The gorilla starts shaking under the paper. “Uh, you mean the one that just f-fucked the lion up the ass?” he stutters. The lion sits up with a start and says, “Shit! It’s in the paper already!?”
The officer shouted orders to a nearby soldier. With considerable bravery, the GI ran directly onto the field of battle, in the line of fire, to retrieve a dispatch case from a dead soldier. In a hail of bullets, he dove back to safety.
“Private,” the officer said, “I’m recommending you for a medal. You risked your life to save the locations of our
secret warehouses.” “Warehouses!?” the private shouted. “I thought you said whorehouses!”
A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower when the doorbell rings. After a few seconds of arguing over which one should go to answer the doorbell, the wife relents. She quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs. She opens the door to find Bob, the next door neighbor. Before she says a word, Bob says, “I’ll give you 800 dollars to drop that towel that you have on.” After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob. After a few seconds, Bob hands her 800 dollars and leaves. Confused, but excited about her good fortune, the woman wraps back up in the towel and returns upstairs. When she gets back to the bathroom, her husband asks from the shower: “Who was that?” “It was Bob the next door neighbour,” she replies. “Great,” the husband says, “did he say anything about the 800 dollars he owes me?”
Okay! A bonus, this time around, for those who like this blog. I “parked” this post, two days ago, since it had reached an unmanageable size, and began compiling another. Well, I am almost finished that one, as well, so it will go up later today, or tomorrow. I have never posted twice within 4 days, so this precedent will hopefully keep you all entertained for a while.
