Once again, I must thank those who recently sent the kind comments about the content, and the writing, on this site. You give me the confidence to continue on.
Many Iron Age civilizations built stone forts which had their walls melted together.
Most facial recognition programs have the same fault as their creators: They can’t recognize black people.
Schoolgirl fetishes have long been popular in Japan, due to their inclusion in anime, but, recently, female graduates have been making some extra money by selling their old uniform online. 15000 yen is about $132 U.S. More is paid if the panties are include in the sale.
I knew there were a lot of Americans getting plastic surgery, but the actual numbers really surprised me. I don’t consider myself good looking, but I am still satisfied with the way I look. And the idea of surgery to redo my looks is not at all appealing.
I’ll bet Jennifer Lopez has had a bit of work done. It must be tough to be a celebrity. Gain a little weight, age a few years, etc., your photos are plastered all over the media, and you are shamed for it. This woman is almost 50 years old. Look in the mirror. Look very closely. How do YOU measure up? Besides, HD usually tends to exaggerate details. She may be high maintenance, but I think she is still a fine looking woman. And the caption posted with the photo, as well as the attitude behind it, is unfair.
Kim Kardashian knows all to9 well about negative comments. One thing I don’t understand, though. The point of posting “nude” photos, but covering up the naughty bits. Do people get turned on by them? It just seems that more skin would be shown by a skimpy swimsuit than by a nude covered with black bars. This kind of pic doesn’t really do much for me. Even when posted by women I actually find attractive. Apparently, the photo was meant to show off her post baby body, but there is a rumor circulating that it is a year old.
I found one thing interesting, in the article. A while ago, I posted a comment to a story about Kanye West’s financial difficulties, asking why his loving wife didn’t bail him out. According to the Tweet, she just did, with the profits from her online game..
Anyone who pays more than one dollar for a photo of a potato should be sent for a mental evaluation. Why would someone want a potato pic, anyway?
I don’t even drink regular coffee. When I was a kid, my parents wouldn’t let me drink it. Then, when I became a teen, they decided to let me try it, and I thought it tasted terrible. But who was the first person who saw coffee beans in civet poop, and decided to brew coffee from it?
Would you eat bugs? How about if you knew they were loaded with protein?
I’m not a huge fan of pork, in fact, I never eat bacon. That may shock a lot of people, but I just don’t care for food that is half fat. I still think that those who do like it should be allowed access to it.
Maple syrup, a well know cure for whatever ails you.
IKEA is working on a way to replace their current polystyrene packing material with a product made from fungus.
I’m pretty sure these “tricks” don’t work on me. I typically purchase the same items every time I go grocery shopping, except that, sometimes, I get a craving for, say, hot dogs, or ice cream. But I know that going in, and go directly to them. I also naturally round up items that are priced at $x.98, for all the difference that a dollar makes. Besides, don’t most people always shop at the same grocery store every time? Wouldn’t one soon learn the layout, and avoid even going down aisles that don’t hold items they are interested in? And don’t people usually make a list of what they need, or want, before they leave home? The store I shop at has an aisle mostly dedicated to pasta, and another with mostly spices. So, if I don’t need either of those products, I just skip the entire aisle. Not to mention that every grocery store I have ever been in has large overhead signs listing the products in each aisle. Aimless wandering just wastes time. And money, for those who are fooled by these tricks.
So many things disturb me about this story. I have seen it linked to four times, now, and most of the comments are along the lines of “Oh, that’s sooooo cute” Not to me. Poor parenting is evident. Great to teach a child about 911. Not great to explain what is, and isn’t an emergency. Why didn’t the 911 operator ask whether there was an adult in the home, and talk to the grandfather, instead of sending emergency personnel to a non emergency? The grandfather could have easily dealt with the problem, had he known about it. And I think that it was also wrong to leave a 2 year old unsupervised long enough for the call to be made.
Some adults also seem to need constant supervision. I typical fly on commercial airlines a couple of times a year, although they are short flights, about an hour long or so. The passengers are usually well behaved. On longer flights, I can see how one would get restless, but the type of behavior in this article is out of order. Invade my personal space, and you have a confrontation in your immediate future.
I’m not even going to comment. Just read the story, and you can guess what I think.
What are you doing while jumping rope that makes you unable to keep track of the number of jumps? Is that worth paying $95 for an item that can be purchased for $25 or less without this counting function?
It’s really too bad this wasn’t real.
Cookies that look so good you may not want to eat them.
This man has a very unique talent. I was not able to follow the link to the full video, unfortunately. It kept coming up as a blank page. I linked to my reblog of the post, since the original had those annoying (to me, anyway) “you may also like…” attachments.
For some reason, an ostrich started chasing these cyclists during a race in South Africa.
When I saw this, I thought “This can’t be a real thing, can it?” Well, it is and it isn’t. Either way, incredibly stupid. Yes, women typically make less than men, but the idea that they had male genitals would not gain them respect.
Kanye West is now an environmentalist. He has announced a personal pledge to eliminate the waste of tons of plastic.

New artist Alessia Cara is a singer who actually made something I like. Like enough, in fact, to download it.

I don’t like her debut single, “Here” quite as much, but it is definitely listenable.
AC/DC vocalist Brian Johnson has been ordered to quit touring by his doctor.
Last week, a friend of mine commented about how Country music has changed since the “old days”. If Rolling Stone is correct, this band is largely the reason. Even though they argue that they are not a Country band. Regardless, I still like the song. And the band.
I can understand getting angry when your spouse sells your ticket to a coveted event, but this was taking things too far. Since they were both “Elvis mad”, I have to think there was more to this.
Vessels is a five-man band from Leeds, England. The video accompanying their latest single, ‘4AM,’ is like being on a tourist spaceship visiting a volatile world. The music is not great, but it seems to fit the video, which is interesting.
Could anyone explain this to me? It appeared on my Tumblr dashboard with 54 “likes”. But what does it represent? Neither a Google nor a Bing reverse image search identified it. So what did they know that I don’t? Maybe, if the start point for the arcs were identified, it would be easier to explain. Unfortunately, I cannot ask the blogger, since they only accept messages from Tumblrs they follow. Well, how accommodating of you. With the information provided, I just have to assume 54 idiots saw the image. Even harder to understand than those who post odd stuff without context are those who jump on the bandwagon, oblivious to where it is headed.
This one. I had much the same reaction as Brendan Fraser’s character, when he saw her in the movie, awe. And she played a great character, too. A tough, independent woman, who always has your back. If you want a better look, the original image, opened in a new tab, is more than twice as large.
Well, damn and drat! Since I live in North America, I was not able to see Tuesdays solar eclipse with my own (shaded)eyes, so I found a live feed of it on the internet. Due to a miscalculation in time zone conversion, however, I was only able to see the last part of it, when the Moon had already traveled almost completely across the sun’s face. Oh, well, maybe next time. Which isn’t until August of 2017. There was also a near Earth asteroid flyby that day.
China is planning a space telescope that has an innovative design which will make repairs relatively easy.
Mercury once had a graphite crust.
Happy birthday to Carolyn Porco. Carolyn Porco (b. 1953) is a planetary scientist best known for her work in the exploration of the outer solar system. As a member of the Voyager imaging team, she was responsible for important work on the probes’ missions to Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Along with her team she discovered seven moons of Saturn and several new rings on the planet. She has also worked as a NASA advisor, and has published more than 100 papers on several subject related to astronomy. Her two TED talks where highly popular, and in 2010 she received the Carl Sagan Medal for Excellence in the Communication of Science to the Public.
I owned a 1963 Newport, and a 1964 300 2 door. The 63 was in average to poor shape, but the 64 was in pretty good condition, especially the interior. They both had a rectangular steering wheel and dash mounted push button operated transmission shift mechanism and heater controls.
I hope an article is published on this vehicle once it has been completed, and I see it.
“Badly managed” Doesn’t begin to cover it. Especially when parking in the area is an issue.
How drunk do you have to be to drive with a tree stuck in the front of your car and the airbags deployed?
When I read the headline, my first thought was that cell phones were involved. Sure enough, they were listed as a contributing factor.
Insurance scammer caught in the act on camera. Think the sore head was worth it, dumbass?
Two old ladies drive around in a Lamborghini, surprising most bystanders. Come on, Granny, open it up! On second thought, considering the results of your low speed run, maybe have some practice first.
A farmer had 5 female pigs. Times were hard, so he decided to take them to the county fair and sell them. At the fair, he met another farmer who owned five male pigs. After talking a bit, they decided to mate the pigs and split everything 50/50. The farmers lived sixty miles apart, so they agreed to drive thirty miles each and find a field in which to let the pigs mate. The first morning, the farmer with the female pigs got up at 5 A.M., loaded the pigs into the family station wagon, (which was the only vehicle he had) and drove the thirty miles. While the pigs were mating, he asked the other farmer, “How will I know if they are pregnant?” The other farmer replied, “If they’re lying in the grass tomorrow morning, they’re pregnant. If they’re in the mud, they’re not.” The next morning the pigs were rolling in the mud, so he hosed them off, loaded them into the family station wagon again and proceeded to try again. This continued each morning for more than a week and both farmers were worn out. The next morning he was too tired to get out of bed. He called to his wife, “Honey, please look outside and tell me whether the pigs are in the mud or in the grass.” “Neither,” yelled his wife, “they’re in the station wagon and one of them is honking the horn.”
A six-year-old comes crying to his mother because his little sister pulled his hair. “Don’t be angry,” the mother says, “Your little sister doesn’t realize that pulling hair hurts.” A short while later, there’s more crying, and the mother goes to investigate. This time the sister is bawling and her brother says, “She knows now.”
My mom has a lead foot, so I was not surprised when a state trooper pulled us over as we were driving through Georgia. Hoping to get off with a warning, Mom tried to appear shocked when he walked up to the car. ‘I have never been stopped like this before,’ she said to the officer. ‘What do they usually do, ma’am,’ he asked, ‘shoot the tires out?’
A blond has become dreadfully overweight. She goes to the doctor and he decides to put her on a diet. “I want you to eat normally for two days, then skip a day, and repeat this procedure for 2 weeks. Next time I see you, you’ll probably be 5 pounds lighter.” The blonde returns after 2 weeks, but upon weighing her it turns out she lost 20 pounds. “That’s amazing!” Said the doctor, “and you followed my instructions?” The blond nods, tiredly. “I’ll tell you, I thought I was going to drop dead that third day.” “From hunger, you mean?” Asked her doctor. “No, silly, from the skipping!”
Two men are approaching each other on a pavement in America. Both are dragging their right foot as they walk. As they meet, one man looks at the other knowingly, points at his foot and says, “Vietnam, 1969.” The other hooks his thumb behind him and says, “Dog shit, 20 feet back.”
Mrs. Crabapple said to her student, “Johnny, can you think of a solution to end unemployment?”
“Yes, ma’am!” replied little Johnny. “I’d put all the men on one island and the women on another.”
“And what jobs would they be doing then?” asked Mrs. Crabapple.
“Building boats!” exclaimed Johnny.
I don’t how many of you shop at Wal-Mart, but this may be useful to know.
I am posting this to you to warn you of something that happened to me, as I have become a victim of a clever scam while out shopping. This happened to me at Wal-Mart and it could happen to you. Here’s how the scam works: Two seriously good-looking 18-year-old girls come over to your car as you are packing your shopping in the trunk. They both start wiping your windscreen with a rag and window wash, with their breasts almost falling out of their skimpy t-shirts. It is impossible not to look. When you thank them and offer them a tip, they say ‘No’ and instead ask you for a ride to another Wal-Mart. You agree and they get in the back seat. On the way, they start having sex with each other. Then one of them climbs over into the front seat and performs oral sex on you, while the other one steals your wallet. I had my wallet stolen last Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, again on Saturday, and also yesterday and probably again tonight.
