…aaaand it has begun. On November 5th I got my first Christmas related spam email. If I had any young children, I sure as hell wouldn’t sign up for a “message from Santa” via a spam email. Bah, humbug, mutherfuckers!
Welcome to my latest subscriber! I tried to visit your site, but the link in the notification just took me to the Gravatar page.
My distaste for anyone who makes spelling errors on their posts is well founded, since I scored 100% on this quiz. I always use spellcheck, as well as proofreading, before publishing anything, to try not to make mistakes.
I am not that great at grammar, though, since I got two of these ten questions wrong.
When your boss keeps trying to shoot himself in the foot, you have to take away his gun. Too bad, though, he might just have inflicted a fatal wound.
President Obama leapt on this announcement to publicly humiliate Trump.
If almost 400 people told me I was wrong, I would likely change my mind. Especially if they were scientists.
So, the election is finally over, and, even though I was part of it, (because you know nothing happens without my sharing an opinion on it) I will be relieved to not see reports of the battle on nearly every site I visit, and channel I watch. But WTF, America? I guess I am just naïve, because, somehow, I expected (hoped?) that all of the Trump support was just a bunch of hoopla from a bunch of rednecks, and would be steadily negated by the Clinton voters. Even though I was not a Clinton fan. Like many others, I considered her the lesser of two evils.
A lot of Tumblrs I follow were posting messages of doom, even panic, on Tuesday and Wednesday. Even the ones normally devoted to comedy. A few were actually posting suicide hotline numbers on Tuesday night. And I read about sites that were doing nothing but showing images of nature, and playing relaxing music, to try to help people relieve their stress. That sounds crazy, doesn’t it? But not as crazy as the heavily armed person who shot 3 people at a polling station. One fatally. And, perhaps, the craziest thing was that, if the people who voted “none of the above”, or for one of the other candidates, like Johnson, despite being warned not to, and voted for Clinton, she might have won. Learning that, apparently, 11,000 people wrote in Harambe the gorilla shows just what kind of people we are dealing with, here. Why did you morons even bother to vote? You not only held up serious voters, but you made a farce of the entire electoral process. Did you think this was some kind of joke? And a write in candidate isn’t even countedif they haven’t pre-registered.
By noon, on Wednesday, I had seen at least 4 different sites that had posted large black square images, representing their opinion that it was a black day for America. It might just be selective memory, but I don’t recall this type of reaction before, in U.S. election history. And, oddly, I only saw a couple of the many sites I visit regularly posting anything positive about Trump’s win. One destroyed any credibility he might have had by posting a fake newspaper headline claiming that Clinton had killed and eaten Jon Benet Ramsay. Some were calling it the Season Finale of America. I think this also gives us a good idea of why powerful cultures like the Romans fell. They became so divided, and against their government, that they could no longer function. So, now, I guess we will see just how much power a President Trump actually has, and whether he will be allowed to build his wall, or deport Muslims for no reason other than that they are Muslims. I am so very glad, today, that I am not a U.S, citizen. This really showed that country’s true colors, And that nothing has changed there in the past 50 years or more. I suspect that, now, we will see a sharp rise in overt racism and misogyny.
The stock market has also reacted. The U.S. dollar fell, the British pound rose against the dollar, and gold rose due to uncertainty over the dollar. Plus the Mexican Peso fell to its lowest value in two decades. All this proving that a Trump Presidency affects the entire world.
Finally, let me just say that, if you are a Trump supporter, please just leave this site forever. It is not aimed at someone such as you. And you likely won’t agree with most of what you see here anyway.
A lot of U.S. citizens were very worried about the election outcome, and seemed to be hedging their bets.
An apt analogy.
And other countries were like:
But, apparently, there is still one slim chance that this farce can be reversed.
Something smells really badly, here. Either there are a lot of incompetent people involved, or a lot of crooked ones.
This is beyond disgusting. I hope that jerk can’t find another job, and becomes homeless himself.
Giant iceballs are washing up on the shore in Siberia.
It is quite disappointing to learn that this offshore wind farm will be only the first of its kind. Why do so many people oppose renewable energy?
Everyone should take a lesson from what is happening, right now, in India. Large parts of that country are blanketed in thick clouds of smog that are visible from space. The air quality has been described as terrible in New Delhi, with a lot of residents finding it difficult to breathe, and, even, see for any distance. Needless to say, this is all manmade.
One would think a truck on fire would be the strangest thing in a video. Watch the video, then read the second comment. I had to pause the video, myself (to pause, just left click on it) to make sure it was true.
Either this guy is a total loser, or his wife is a real bitch.
Deciding to hike across Europe is one thing, but it seems very risky for Westerners to even visit Afghanistan, not to mention cross it on foot. I always have to shake my head when I hear or read of someone putting themselves at great risk while saying “God will protect us”. Well, if there is a God, he must not have cared much for these two.
More really bad decisions.
First of all, I think, in most of these photos, anyway, she looks nothing like Kim K. And if she actually originally did look like Kim, as her friends said, she had no need to have any surgery. Second, my opinion is that anyone who spends thousands of dollars to change their appearance is delusional.
I wish the CBC allowed comments, because I would really love to know what other people thought of this. Personally, I think it was stupid. I also found the story on Reddit, and both comments to it were negative.,
Science can go suck a lemon. Few of these examples, including the mashup image, fit my idea of most beautiful. In fact, Emily Ratajkowski is the only one on the list that I am truly attracted to. And their idea of the perfect female body grosses me out.
This was, apparently, a scene from Big Bang Theory, but it raises an interesting question: Would a fairly conventional guy like me engage in bondage with someone like Kaley Cuoco? Hmmm. Probably, but I wouldn’t like it…much. And only if violence/rough sex was not involved.
The scene in question, for those of you who I am sure are interested.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Anthony Kiedis is a hero.
No music playlist, this time. The views have been quite low, so it seems as if one in every post would be overkill. Besides, I have been fairly busy, lately, and didn’t take the time to create a new one.
Chicken fingers were not even available when I was a kid, but my siblings and I did not have the option of being picky eaters. There were two choices at mealtimes in my parents house: like it or lump it. And, if we did not eat what was put on the table at mealtime, there were to be no in between snacks. Since we got no allowance, buying something to eat at the store or café was not an option, either.
This makes zero sense. I would have thought he would have quit after noticing his developing paunch.
This is what Coke has devised for their Christmas bottles.
There’s a word for people who will pay $11 per chip for potato chips, and it isn’t a complimentary one.
And, no matter how good it tastes, 20 dollars for a single burger is outrageous. Not even a side of fries.
Regular readers know that I delight in finding Apple putdowns. I liken these devices to the electronic version of Beyoncé. Wildly popular, and hugely successful, but they leave me basically unimpressed. This video is a Lenovo ad from 2008. It is in response to Apple’s selling point that their laptop could fit in a business envelope. Well, yes, the laptop could. How little some things change.
Two headed shark sightings are becoming common.
The odd creatures that live deep in the ocean.
I hate mice and rats. Gibbons don’t care for rats either
“Dude, what the hell? Don’t tease me like that!” You might have to right click and select play, if the video doesn’t load.
I guess all children, and all adults, are pretty much the same.
Friends for life.
How would you like to meet up with this bad boy at twilight?
This looks like the bear was charging the photographer, but, apparently, it was just hunting fish.
Way to go, bull! This should happen to every fool who gets into the ring with a bull. Who decided that bull fighting was entertainment, anyway? I hope he hurt, after this. A lot.
A commentary on how deforestation affects wildlife, I guess.
This is a myosin protein dragging an endorphin along a filament to the inner part of the brain’s parietal cortex which creates happiness. Happiness. You’re looking at happiness.
I am also curious about this. At the strip mall in my neighborhood, I constantly see discarded clothing. Coats, pants, and, the other day, what looked like a perfectly good pair of sneakers. Why would anyone abandon useful clothing? These items can’t all be falling out of bags and backpacks.
Uh, yeah, too much information, there, Tommy. Now, please go wipe your face off.
Look closely. These balls are all moving in straight lines.
Not sure whether to be impressed or grossed out.
In a previous issue, I wondered why so much time and money were spent looking for near Earth asteroids, when there was nothing that could be done about them. As it turns out, NASA and FEMA do have a plan: RUN! Oh, but stay calm (see evacuation plan graphic, in the visuals section, above).
Next time you feel like complaining about the weather, remember this.
Amazing images of the storms around the South Pole on Jupiter, taken by the Juno spacecraft.

Funny car headers are small, useful, thrusters.
I get the craftsmanship involved here, but I agree with the commenter who compared it to tattoos. And I don’t like tattoos either.
How in the hell does one get their exhaust to exit through their door? And, if it is real, which I doubt, how does one get in the truck? That, combined with the front bumper, the odd looking side mirrors, the mismatched wheels, and wtf are those holes for in the sides of the box? All in all, this truck is owned by an idiot.
One day an out of work mime is visiting the zoo and attempts to earn some money as a street performer. Unfortunately, as soon as he starts to draw a crowd, a zoo keeper grabs him and drags him into his office. The zoo keeper explains to the mime that the zoo’s most popular attraction, a gorilla, has died suddenly and the keeper fears that attendance at the zoo will fall off. He offers the mime a job to dress up as a gorilla until they can get another one. The mime accepts the job. So the next morning the mime puts on the gorilla suit and enters the cage before the crowd comes. He discovers that it’s a great job. He can sleep all he wants, play and make fun of people and he draws bigger crowds than he ever did as a mime. However, eventually the crowds tire of him and he tires of just swinging on tires. He begins to notice that the people are paying more attention to the lion in the cage next to his. Not wanting to lose the attention of the audience, he climbs to the top of his cage, crawls across a partition, and dangles from the top of the lion’s cage. Of course, this makes the lion furious, but the crowd loves it. At the end of the day the zoo keeper comes and gives the mime a raise for being such a good attraction as a gorilla. Well, this goes on for some time, the mime keeps taunting the lion, the crowds grow larger, and his salary keeps going up. Then one terrible day when he is dangling over the furious lion he slips and falls. The mime is terrified. The lion gathers himself and prepares to pounce. The mime is so scared that he begins to run round and round the cage with the lion close behind. Finally, the mime starts screaming and yelling, “Help, help me!”, but the lion is quick and pounces. The mime soon finds himself flat on his back looking up at the angry lion and the lion says…..”Shut up you idiot! Do you want to get us both fired?”
