Windows users who have not yet upgraded to the Windows 10 OS, and aren’t using the Edge browser, should be aware of a major bug in Flash software. Since Flash is not supported in Win 10, folks like me have nothing to worry about. A patch will not be released until November 8th.
A self professed Apple fan has pretty much the same opinion of the new Mac toolbar that I did, when I read about it. Which is quite satisfying to learn.
Would you legally change your name to iPhone 7 to get a free one? I don’t need a phone anywhere near that badly.
No more proof than this is needed to show that it is too hot for humans in Florida. There must be something else than baked brains at fault, though, because there are many populated countries around the equator, and they have far less crazy to deal with.
I must secretly hate myself, because, even after reading the warning in the article, I still watched the video. And, yeah, it was pretty bad.
Another Tumblr blogger I follow posted one of those “reblog and get money” pictures, on Friday. I messaged the blogger, asking “You don’t really believe in this crap, do you? Do you also believe in the tooth fairy and Santa Claus? How about the Great Pumpkin?” And, later that day I received a reply: “No, I don’t believe in them, but, sometimes, they have nice pictures”. Anyone else think that is an extremely lame excuse for promoting that kind of crap?
I think, if you can, or need to, deal with your loneliness with a virtual female personal assistant, you have serious issues. Better that, though, than sexual assault.
This should be very interesting. Bill Maher will interview President Obama on his Real Time program.
One comment to this article read ‘It’s the classic “Is it shit or am I old?” conundrum”. All I know is that I have, in my music collection, works by artists from Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin to Vanilla Ice, and even a bit of punk, early rap, and some country, but virtually nothing recorded after the year 2000. And, yes, I am old.
OK, people, what’s the deal? You have me very confused. Here it is, 4 days since my last issue was published, and there have been zero views of the music video playlist it contained. So, either the people who swore they were interested were lying, or were, somehow, all too busy with Hallowe’en preparations, or something, to watch. I checked that it played from my phone, in case there was some issue with the sharing function, and it did, so the only logical reason for zero views recorded is that there were none. So, I’m not going to waste my time making any more until, or if, that last one gets at least five views.
After World War II, German Army helmets were turned into cooking pots and colanders. Seems like that would be a sad reminder of their negative recent history.
Maybe, if every young person was forced to witness the horrors of war firsthand, there would be far fewer of them. One would think humanity would have learned from the two World Wars. But, when your economy relies on the profits of war making, as America’s does, it likely never will. Also, I read a post on Reddit reminding that World War I was ongoing 100 years ago, but we never hear anything about it. I guess 4 years of remembrance would be a bit much for most people. And quite expensive for governments.
I will never understand how incidents like this can continue to occur, much less how the perpetrators continue to go unpunished. I think no black person should ever go outside their home alone if at all possible. And, even then, they would remain at great risk.
This is obviously meant as a joke, and I am not trying to make light of the situation, but it illustrates the problem clearly.

Maybe you should just concentrate on your performance, dude, and leave the showboating to others.
People are blown into the sea by a commercial jet on an airport on the Caribbean island of Saint Martin. I would have thought that most of those standing there would have know better. And wouldn’t there be warning signs? Better yet, close off that area of beach.

A group of guys having a bachelor party in the woods adopted an abandoned dog that showed up at their cabin, and her puppies.
Goat has issues.
The headline says “thousands”, but the video only shows a handful of bison. Apparently there are other videos which show more, so why were those not used? Still, the main point is the symbolism.
Come on, people, man has been to the Moon, developed amazing new technology, and doctors have eradicated so many diseases. How can anyone still believe that what is basically just fingernails is going to make them healthy? And what will they turn to when they have made their “medicine” extinct?
No thanks. That seems somewhat suicidal.
Dog tries to stop water from running down the street.
“There ya go, buddy.”
Think this pup was taught to do this, or did she figure it out on her own?
I assume this is a female dog, because wouldn’t a male get “hung up”?
I wasn’t sure if this was an attack or not. Then I enlarged it, and saw the police uniform. I don’t understand why so many sites post tiny pics when they have the full page available, and the image is high enough resolution to make it bigger.
He makes riding a mechanical bull look easy. Maybe it is, this way.
More Floridans who spent too much time in the sun. Perhaps that is the problem. Other hot countries have siestas in the shade during the heat of the day. Maybe Florida should try doing that.
I don’t know if I necessarily agree with this, but it is something to think about.
Who else watched Years of Living Dangerously on Sunday? A very informative, and worrisome program. As was Before the Flood, another program about climate change, which proceeded it. It made me seriously consider what I could do, personally, to help. The thing that I was most surprised about, but I guess I really shouldn’t have been, was that Nevada put legislation into place which basically put the state’s largest producer of solar panels out of business. And I was amazed at just how much of the rain forest is, and has been, destroyed, to plant palm oil trees. Who knew that palm oil was in so many of the foods we eat?
A few hours after watching the show, I found this article. It presented an interesting challenge: Would I be willing to give up eating beef to help reverse climate change? Now, that would be extremely difficult. Maybe I can weasel out by suggesting that beef producers follow the experiment I shared in a previous issue. You may remember the one that proved methane emissions from cattle can be greatly reduced by adding seaweed to their diets. But that still does not deal with the deforestation caused by clearing land to raise livestock on. I know I would not mind too much if I only ate fish and chicken, though. It’s just too bad that synthetic beef will likely not be affordable, or taste similar to real beef, in the near future.
If you are interested in watching Before The Flood, you can find the full show here:

I don’t eat avocados, but I never imagined they were so popular that they would be responsible for deforestation.
Bananas are hardly innocent, either.

This is a rare image of the Sphinx taken from a hot air balloon, in the early 19th century. This is before excavation and restoration.
I wish I would have found this in time to include it in my Hallowe’en issue. Despite my vow to not overdo holidays, this was just too cool to not share. Awesome makeup by @, an English girl living in Norway. Much more inventive than all these girls who just dress up in something like lingerie on Hallowe’en. Don’t get me wrong, I am a big fan of female skin, but these “sexy nurse, cowgirl, cop, etc.” outfits do get old, after a while. And it seems quite lazy, really, although a lot of guys love it. Um, yeah, underwear with fake animal ears has been done to death. Oh, and while I’m at it, please, ladies, don’t push your boobs up under your chins. It looks unnatural, and unattractive. My opinion.
While Heidi Klum’s outfit certainly showed a lot of skin, it was also extremely inventive.
I can guess what he was trying to do. My question is “Why?”
I don’t even drink coffee, but I can’t imagine having this much dedication to hardly anything. I suppose the picture was taken by an underpaid employee who was forced to work in those conditions, and couldn’t believe a customer actually came in. But, shouldn’t those chairs have been taken out of the water, to prevent damage?
Mildly interesting, but not sure if it was worth the waste of so much Coke.

While I wouldn’t call anyone who believes in God a lunatic (my parents did, and sister does believe strongy) this does support my stance.

Another large asteroid passed close to Earth on Sunday. Since most of these objects are only discovered within days of crossing our path, I have to wonder what the point of spending a lot of money to look for them is, since there isn’t really anything we can do about it but bend over and kiss our asses goodbye. There is an Asteroid Redirect Mission planned for launch, but not until 2021.

A former boss of mine owned a 1976 Grand Prix SJ. His had a T-Top (removable glass roof panels). Every now and then, we would go cruising around in it, looking for jobs for his roofing company, and, sometimes, he would let me drive. It was a very, very nice car.
OOH! That’s gotta hurt! Big rig puller loses a u-joint during a run.
I don’t think this electric vehicle is a bad looking design, but that engine that is shown in the video sure looks like a 4 cylinder gas engine to me.
Dodge Hellcats continue to amaze me. This one runs quarter miles in the low 9 seconds, with very little modification.

This 800-hp Mustang GTT from Zero to 60 Designs will debut at the SEMA performance trade show in Las Vegas this week. I almost mistook it for a Ferrari, mostly because of the taillights.
Custom car creator Boyd Coddington’s last work.
What, exactly, is going on here?
I had no idea Dodge made a Coronet limo in 1966. I would not have been so surprised if it had been a Chrysler, but the Coronet was not a luxury model.
As curious as I am, I had to try to find out if this was a factory option, or a custom creation. The Classic Car Database does not list a ’66 Coronet limousine as being produced, but I did find the page at the link below. Translated, the text reads: Owner was Frode Rong and Arne Gerhardsen Torsvik. The car is purchased in May -04. 225 cid straight six with assault (some kind of Google Translate error, no doubt). Having previously gone as taxi in Oslo, and came to Askøy in the early 80s to Geir Jakobsen from Marik Oven, a former member of ACCA. The car is mostly complete. Arne took with him the car when he moved to eastern Norway in 2008 and resigned from the American Car Club Askøy.
A father is explaining ethics to his son, who is about to go into business. “Suppose a woman comes in and orders a hundred dollars worth of material. You wrap it up, and you give it to her. She pays you with a $100 bill. But as she goes out the door you realize she’s given you two $100 bills. Now, here’s where the ethics come in: should you or should you not tell your partner?”
Apologies to all blondes:
A young ventriloquist is touring the clubs and one night he’s doing a show in a small town in Arkansas. With his dummy on his knee, he starts going through his usual dumb blonde jokes when a blonde woman in the fourth row stands on her chair and starts shouting: “I’ve heard enough of your stupid blonde jokes. What makes you think you can stereotype women that way? What does the color of a person’s hair have to do with her worth as a human being? It’s guys like you who keep women like me from being respected at work and in the community and from reaching our full potential as a person. Because you and your kind continue to perpetuate discrimination against not only blondes, but women in general and all in the name of humor!” The embarrassed ventriloquist begins to apologize, and the blonde yells, “You stay out of this, mister! I’m talking to that little smart ass on your knee.”
A Brit, a Frenchman and a Russian are viewing a painting of Adam and Eve frolicking in the Garden of Eden. “Look at their reserve, their calm,” muses the Brit. “They must be British.” “Nonsense,” the Frenchman disagrees. “They’re naked, and so beautiful. Clearly, they are French.” “No clothes, no shelter,” the Russian points out, “they have
only an apple to eat, and they’re being told this is paradise. They are Russian.”
A woman gets on a bus holding a baby. The bus driver says: “That’s the ugliest baby I’ve ever seen.” Mad as hell, the woman slammed her money into the fare box and took an aisle seat near the rear of the bus. The man seated next to her sensed that she was agitated and asked her what was wrong. “The bus driver insulted me,” she fumed. The man sympathized and said: “Why, he’s a public servant and shouldn’t say things to insult passengers.” “You’re right,” she said. “I think I’ll go back up there and give him a piece of my mind.” “That’s a good idea” the man said. “Here, let me hold your monkey.”
I picked up an older woman at a club last night… She was hot, (for 57). We drank a bit, had a bit of a conversation, and she asked if I’d ever had the “sportsman’s double”? I told her I wasn’t sure what that was. She said it was a mother and daughter threesome. Well, she was so attractive, I figured the daughter had to be really hot! We drank a bit more, then she says that tonight was my lucky night. I said that sounds great, let’s go! We went back to her place. She put
the hall light on and shouted upstairs: “Mom you still awake…?”
