Thanks very much to all of the kind people who have recently sent in comments in support of my efforts, here. It is nice to know that people are interested in what I publish. And thank you to everyone who sent good wishes after my recent injury.
Also, in answer to the question I received about how to begin blogging, no, you don’t need to know how to program. There are quite a few sites that will host a blog for you, like WordPress, the one I am using. A Google search will show you others. They all give you a blank page, customizable to your liking, that you can type into, or upload images and videos to. I think the hardest part is finding readers. I use word of mouth. This site was created as a way of sharing cool stuff with my friends without flooding their email inboxes. They showed their friends, who showed their friends, and so on. Some people have also told me that they found my page via search engines like Google, while looking for a specific image. Others found it through the StumbleUpon site. There are also sites that will promote your blog for a fee, but I have not chosen to use that method. Good luck with your effort. If you decide to try out running your own blog. Send me the URL, and I will pass it along if I like what I see.
So, let’s say I don’t feel comfortable flying with racist flight attendants. Could I get them removed?
Do a lot of flying, and need to distract yourself from who on your flight might be potential terrorists? This app will tell you what you are flying over at any given time.
Is this all just paranoia? Or merely a convenient excuse for racism?
It has been confirmed that Axl Rose will take over lead singing duties for AC/DC. Judging by the embedded recording of his version of Whole Lotta Rosie, in the article at the link, I do not approve of this decision. It is possible that the recording did not capture the true sound of the performance, but it just doesn’t sound right to me. It won’t be long until AC/DC fans tell us whether the pairing was a good one. After all, the band seems satisfied with their choice.
Alice Cooper thinks Axl’s voice is perfect for the job. But he also originally thought the announcement was an April Fool’s joke.
Team Rock.com, whomever they are (never heard of them before this), has some suggestions, but the only one I find worthwhile is having Brian do a few guest appearances. I stress a few, because including it at every performance would be too predictable, as well as possibly further damaging to his hearing. But I still don’t understand why no one has considered the use of earplugs. Surely there must be some available that would reduce the decibel level at the concerts below a dangerous point.
And Rolling Stone Magazine’s take on the situation.
A lot of people dismiss Phil Collins as a has been, or, even, a never was, but I like most of his work. He was also a prolific producer, and worked with a lot of big names, including Eric Clapton. Here he is, performing In the Air Tonight, as special guest at one of Eric’s concerts.
That’s fine, Justin, but I don’t care whether you care about my opinion or not. Nothing is going to change the fact that hairstyle is UGLY.
It must be tough being a celebrity, especially a female celebrity. Actress Megan Fox just announced that she is pregnant. So, how did one gossip site report this news? Oh, no, not anything so mundane as a link containing a word like “congratulations”. How might Megan feel, seeing a headline proclaiming “Megan Fox’s Boobs Are About To Get Much Bigger”? Sometimes, this kind of attitude makes me ill. So I removed the site from my list of bookmarks.
Maybe it is because I appreciate the grief we men cause women, or, perhaps, just because a fictional story doesn’t necessarily offend me, I was not angered by this mockumentary, as a lot of guys apparently were. Maybe they need to take a good look at themselves, and see if they deserve the scorn. After all, some of the comments directed at the film were pretty sexist. These guys seem to have forgotten, or never knew, that women did ALL of the hard labor men usually did, while the men of America were off fighting World War Two.
I also removed the Lunar Baboon site from my bookmarks, due to the latest cartoon posted there, a Harry Potter themed take on the tired old theory that anyone who drives a big truck is compensating for a small penis. Well, guess what, kiddies? Some people actually have a USE for a lifted truck, either for work, or for play. And others just like the way they look. Some would suggest that anyone making this type of allusion is compensating for something, themselves. And I don’t care to support anyone with this type of attitude.
Not to mention the good that a lifted truck is capable of.
Don’t get me wrong, I think Jennifer is a very attractive woman, but not “most beautiful”, by a long shot.
Not long ago, I read that South Korea has the most facial reconstruction surgeries performed, by far, in the world. These procedures are even commonly given as birthday and graduation gifts. So, although this was a thoroughly revolting display to set up in public, it likely didn’t take very long to collect.
This guy should have put all the money he wasted on tattoos and piercings toward dental work.
Ever wonder where the expression “Elvis has left the building” came from? Wonder no more.
Colin Mochrie was definitely the star of this show. I got many hours of entertainment from watching it.
I don’t suppose she learned to do this overnight, but it is still impressive.
Regular readers know that I am not impressed by risk takers like this. Drinking before taking such a chance seems even riskier. Now he is in a lot of trouble for such a flimsy reason. And he didn’t even achieve his intent. Maybe the media should quit publishing photos which glorify these people by showing them in dangerous places.
I am not impressed by guns, either. The only way this makes sense is if he is found to be insane. Even if the safety was on, who joins a water gun fight with a real weapon? If the shooting was payback for getting wet, still insane.
And, then, we have geniuses like this, who are just begging for an early grave. Responsible gun owners know to never put their finger on the trigger unless they plan to pull it.
If any of these are actually sold, well, I just give up. If you are willing to buy air, especially at such outrageous prices, you have too much money. And not enough common sense.
I expect that many of these air conditioners will be sold. In fact, I am considering signing up for one, myself.
Something tells me that if another online poll to choose the name of something is held again, there will be strict rules on what is, and isn’t allowed.
The winning name may still be scrapped, however.
Well, this seems like an admirable goal, and I wish him success. It sounds like a lot of work, though. Says the guy who has trouble walking a few blocks.
Jeremy Wade and the River Monsters show crew discovered a castaway on a deserted island.
Utah officially considers pornography a public health hazard.
This was a mistake anyone could have made, but it is very hard to forgive someone who acts as if he is perfect.
I agree with the quote from the YouTube user in this article.
Even if that was a very expensive hat, she still should have known better.
Because even the people who work with tigers on a daily basis are not completely safe around them.
“Hey, I’m a cat. What do I know about gravity?”
Dog stops two random skiers to ask for some important assistance.
I see this same question so often, and, now, I finally felt I had to say something. Because it is most certainly not unanswerable. Rational people realize that, long ago, people saw calves suckling at cows’ udders, and understood that this was the same kind of thing human babies did. From there, it was logical to assume that humans could drink cow’s milk. Especially if we assume that they also saw cats drinking it, as they sometimes do, if it is spilled. Sorry for spoiling the fun, but I don’t find extreme misconceptions like this funny, anyway.
That is a lot of women in one group who got engaged at the same time. Does this happen a lot? Because it was rare that two couples I know got engaged in the same year.
Dad designs shoes to give his paralyzed daughter the sensation of walking.
Happy now? Wanna bet he didn’t even pick up the mess he made with that smooth move?
I wonder how many men did not know this.
Well, if you are still tracking your ex, you might have a teeny little problem. Although it may be possible that she had been among your group of friends, and some of them are still friends with her. I have no idea what the current status of any of my exes is, and it is very rarely that I wonder about it.
Seeing this reminded me that I hadn’t made, or even eaten lasagna in quite a while. I’ll have to make sure I do something about that, soon.
This is a picture of Crater Lake National Park, in Oregon. Through the month of June and into July, yellow swirls of “stuff” can be seen on the surface of the lake and always prompt great concern from visitors. It’s merely pine pollen. It’s harmless to the lake and will eventually settle out to the bottom.
These photos were taken in Japan after the recent earthquake, and show how much the ground moved.
Real things which exist on Earth that seem better suited to an alien planet. Please read the first comment, which explains the “blue lava” much better than the website does.
It truly boggles my mind that anyone continues to challenge the science behind global warming. Even if you live in a tropical, or semi tropical place, where the effects are not as noticeable, how can you ignore facts? Or be as dense as Donald Trump? Personally, I have seen the change happen in my lifetime. When I was young, even up into my twenties and thirties, winters were very harsh. Last November through February barely qualified as winter.
Interesting interview with Buzz Aldrin, as he releases his new autobiography.
The first major new addition to the International Space Station in years has just been delivered to the orbital lab, in the form of an inflatable structure.
And, if that proves successful, a “space hotel” might be next.
ET might be living right next door, we just can’t see them.
It would be great to have the opportunity to see the Auroras from space. I will just have to settle for watching this high definition video, taken from the ISS.
Storms on Mars, as seen in 1977 by the Viking 2 Orbiter.
Audi has created a synthetic diesel fuel from water and carbon dioxide, and is actually running an automobile engine on it.
An upright snowmobile sounds, and looks, a bit weird. I was mostly curious about how it corners, and takes side hills. The video doesn’t show it doing either of those, but the fact that every shot of it, in the video, appears to be at a relatively low speed, it seems as if it is not meant to travel quickly.
It seems to me that any of these mergers would dilute both brands enough that their individual histories would become invalid.
Totally wild ’69 Charger, powered by a twin turbo V-10 Viper engine.
A lot of people don’t like this model year of the Road Runner/GTX, because their horsepower was strangled by pollution controls. Others just don’t like the body style. While I prefer the earlier models, like the ones above, and below, I would still love to own one of these.
A woman is very distressed because she has not been married very long and yet her husband has lost interest in sex. So, she goes to see her doctor and relays the problem. The doctor doesn’t seem worried at all and tells her that it is nothing serious, that her husband has merely lost his animal instincts. The doctor tells her to crumble some dog biscuits on her husband’s cereal every morning without telling him, and little by little this will bring out the savage beast in him. He wishes her good luck and tells her to come back in a week with a progress report. A week later the woman returns to the doctor, who asks how her husband is. “He’s dead,” she replies. “Dead?” the doctor asked. The woman says, “Yes. He was sitting in the driveway licking his balls, and I backed over him with the car.
I went to the store the other day, and I was in there for only about 5 minutes. When I came out there was a motorcycle cop writing a parking ticket. So I went up to him and said, ‘Come on, buddy, how about giving a guy a break?’ He ignored me and continued writing the ticket. So I called him a pencil-necked Nazi. He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn tyres! So I called him a piece of horse shit. He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he started writing a third ticket! This went on for about 20 minutes. The more I abused him, the more tickets he wrote. I didn’t care. My car was parked around the corner. I try to have a little fun each day. It’s important.
Sam: I went for my regular checkup today. Everything was normal until he stuck his index finger up my ass.
Harry: Well, that’s a perfectly normal procedure.
Sam: So you don’t think I should change dentists?
A Pagan died and went to Heaven. St Peter met him at the door. “You can’t come in here,” Peter said. The Pagan asked why. “You’re Pagan… sorry. But Hell isn’t so bad. Your friends are there, and they say it’s cool.” The Pagan is depressed but goes anyway, because he was, well, Pagan. So he goes to Hell and is greeted by a beautiful green field with people picnicking and having a great time. A man comes over to him and presents himself as Satan, and the Devil tells him of all the delights in what appears to be a 5 star resort. “Wow!” thinks the Pagan. “Hell ain’t so bad! I’m happy to be here.” Suddenly, the sky gets black and fire spews from the ground. A screaming, flaming man falls from the sky and is swallowed by a crack in the earth. After he disappears, everything returns to normal. “What the heck was that?!” the Pagan asks Satan. Satan replies, “That was a Christian. They wouldn’t have Hell any other way.”
A general visits an army hospital to check on the conditions and inspire the troops. It’s WWI, trench warfare is living hell, and the men could really use some inspiration. The general starts talking to the wounded soldiers. He goes up to the first man and asks: “What brings you in here son?” The soldier replies: “Sir, I got dysentery in the trenches, something awful.” The general asks him: “How are they caring for you in here?” The soldier replies: “Well sir, every day the nurses put a cool cloth on my head and they clean my behind with a soft brush.” The general asks: “Is there anything else we can do for you?” The soldier answers: “No sir, the nurses are doing the best they can.” The general seems satisfied, thanks him for his service and moves on to the next man. The general approaches the second man’s bed and asks: “What brings you in here, son?” The soldier replies somewhat embarrassed: “Sir, I got gonorrhea from a woman while I was on leave.” The general laughs and retorts: “It happens to the best of us, son, how are they caring for you in here?” The soldier replies: “Well, sir, every day the nurses put a cool cloth on my head and they clean my privates with a soft brush.” The general asks: “Is there anything else we can do for you?” The soldier comes back, “No sir, the nurses are doing the best they can do.” The general once again seems satisfied, thanks him for his service and moves on to the next man. The general approaches the third man’s bed and asks: “What brings you in here, son?” The soldier tells him: “Sir, I got strep throat in the trenches.” The general asks: “How are they caring for you in here?” The soldier replies: “Well sir, every day the nurses put a cool cloth on my head, then they clean my throat with a soft brush.” The general asks: “Is there anything else we can do for you?” The soldier comments: “Actually sir, there is one thing… I’d like to be the first one to use the brush.”
An 80 year old man went into the confessional and told the priest the following: “I am an 80 year old man, I’m married, I have 4 children and 11 grandchildren. Last night I had an affair with two 18 year old girls. We partied and made love all night long.” The priest said, “My son, when was the last time you were at confession?” The old man said, “I have never been to confession. In fact, I’m not even Catholic.” The priest said, “Then why are you here telling me this?” The old man said, “Father, I’m telling everyone!”
A policeman searched me in a nightclub toilet last night and found a small bag of class A drugs. “It’s not my fault,” I said, “Every time I try flushing them down the toilet they magically appear back in my pocket again.” “Do you really expect me to believe that?” he laughed. I said, “I can prove it to you if you want me to.” “Go on then.” he smiled, handing me the bag. After flushing them down the toilet, he looked at me with a grin and said, “Well, show me your pocket then!” “What for?” I asked. He said, “The drugs.” I said, “What drugs?”
