I was asked, on Sunday, if I know if they make any рlugins to help with Search
Engine Optimization. Sorry, no I don’t.
Rob Shirkey, founder of the environmental group Our Horizon, wants Canadian cities to require that climate change warning labels be displayed on gas pumps. Who thinks anyone would actually read them?
OK, climate change deniers, how do you explain the fact that some animals are starting to move North?
WOW! That is a truly amazing accomplishment.
Just a bunch of really neat macro photos.
Lots of “Good Stuff” to check out in this week’s blog.
I liked the two “Aliens” movies that I watched, the 1st and 2nd ones, so I plan on seeing the next one. Especially with this endorsement from Sigourney Weaver.
Love camping, but hate the time and effort it takes to start a campfire? This may be of interest.
UGH! Imagine doing this on a regular basis. Hell, imagine even doing this just once. So much for ancient Rome being an advanced civilization.
Urge for a cupcake interfering with your gambling? If you are in Las Vegas that is not a problem.
Yes, she taught them a lesson in manners. She also taught them how to waste food. It was only ice cream, though, so no big loss. I can imagine my own parents doing something similar in the same situation. They tried to teach us kids to be polite.
Some people don’t get any more polite as they age, either. Poor baby didn’t get his precious soup.
Some people are just natural parents, and always seem to know the right thing to do.
Considering everything I went through, in the hospital, after my recent injury, I know I would never fake being hurt. These people must have a cranial short circuit that makes them seek attention.
The article didn’t say why he was in jail, in the first place, so I looked it up. Brian Nelson was 17 when he was found guilty of armed robbery and murder. He was sentenced to 26 years, and sent to Stateville Correctional Center, a maximum security prison south of Chicago. A year and a half later, he escaped. So, perhaps he should just shut the fuck up, realise that he is responsible for his own situation, and be glad he is still alive, something his victim does not have the luxury of. Why is it okay to coddle dangerous people like this? Ask the victim’s family about human rights.
WHOA! Imagine being lifted into the air by a sudden dust devil.
All about an 1860’s scientist who almost died while riding a balloon into the upper atmosphere.
The Grim Reaper isn’t even waiting until singers get old any more, before collecting them. I think everyone in my group of friends was a fan of the Purple Rain era Prince.
Prince was largely responsible for the “Explicit Content” stickers on CD’s.
When Prince first changed his name to a symbol they actually had to mail out floppy discs to the press with a custom font because there was no way to type out the symbol on a keyboard.
I was not aware that Maya Rudolph had a Prince themed cover band.
Even if Bieber wasn’t trying to refer to himself as a great living performer, and even if there are still other great living performers, making a statement like this is still a very disrespectful thing to do.
About as bad as The Drunken Stepfather posting that Prince died of AIDS, and showing a heart monitor flatline as his new symbol. He wasn’t even dead 24 hours when that was put up. And TMZ claims that “their sources” say he died of a drug overdose. Which seems strange, considering that he had converted to a Jehovah’s Witness in the late ’90’s, after the death of his son. I guess we will have to wait and see what the autopsy reveals.
Another theory is that both his and Merle Haggard’s deaths were related to chemtrails, something they both spoke out against. Yeah, that one is pretty far out, too.
It took me a while to get the meaning behind Liz Climo’s latest cartoon. Then I saw the “Rest in peace” tag she posted with it. The raspberry beret should have given it away.
Even NASA paid its respects.
As did Pornhub.
And MTV took the opportunity to prove that they don’t know anything about music any more.
Then some comic genius thought this up. Now, I don’t wish Kanye would die, but he is not a very nice person, and it would be less sad if he did.
If your earphone cables keep tangling, you have no imagination. I wrap mine around my mp3 player when I am not using it, and never have them tangle up.
Roger Daltrey is not at all a fan of the idea of an AC/DC fronted by Axl Rose.
Dundurn is a place in Saskatchewan that is two towns away from where I grew up. It was on our list of places to cruise on weekends, looking for parties and girls. I don’t know if someone did this for real, or if it is just a really good Photoshop, but it made me giggle.
Who thinks this guy looks like a high school student? I don’t know why no one was suspicious.
I don’t think all blondes are dumber than people with darker hair, but there certainly are some dense ones out there.
This kid has a great laugh.
I learned, early in my web browsing days, to take everything I saw on the internet with a healthy dose of skepticism. Whether they try to deceive on purpose, or are just misinformed, a lot of people spread mistruths. Here are some of the most well known examples.
Then there is this. I don’t know why I let it bother me so much, but doesn’t anyone know the difference between a bulldozer and a front end loader? The person who shot this video, and uploaded it to YouTube, misidentified the machines, and all but one of the nearly dozen sites that I have seen that linked to it just played follow the leader.
Dog owners might be interested in purchasing this shirt.
“What’s taking that human so long? Doesn’t he realize how important walkies are?”
Charlie the pup feels a baby move inside its mother, and it freaks him out a bit.
This pup was rescued from a high kill rate shelter, and is now just enjoying life.
Whenever I see a photo or video of an animal riding with a human, like this, I always wonder if it is a wise thing to do. Sure, the animal may enjoy it, but what if there is an accident? The human usually at least has a helmet, but what protection does the animal have?
Or if you let your girl ride in a bikini. She is going to be a bit hard to get along with while she recovers from full body road rash.
Because even professional riders occasionally fall off. That is what the suit is for.
I will always repost goats.
Because they are usually doing something silly.
“Let that be a lesson to ya, ya frigging cabbage”
“NO! We are not getting out of bed!”
“Stupid bed! Can’t. Get. Comfortable.”
Jane Goodall receives a hug from a chimp she had rescued and nursed back to health.
I can’t remember whether I said this here, before, or if I made a similar statement on my Tumbler page, but I think it bears repeating. Regarding these next two: I don’t get all the anti gay/trans/whatever phobia. It’s like some people actually believe these people will seek them out, and try to forcibly have sex with them. But even if they do make a pass, so what? Just politely say “No, thanks”, just as you would if a hetero person asked you out. And it isn’t as if these people woke up, one day, and thought “I think I’ll be (whatever) from now on. Yeah, that sounds cool”. One can no more choose their sexuality than they can their race or gender. Just relax, and let people be whatever makes them comfortable.
I didn’t realize there were so many trans people. But I could have guessed how tough of a time they were having.
If a gay or trans person potentially using the same bathroom as you is enough to make you boycott the business, you have some serious issues. What, still scared of catching cooties? Let’s see if my support costs me any readers. If it does, good riddance.
This attitude is costing some U.S. states million of tourist dollars.
Yet another person who doesn’t seem to realize that the purpose of going to see a game is to watch the action.
I’ve been friendzoned, and I can’t convince her how dumb her “We’re too good of friends to date” excuse sounds. Or convince her that getting extra friendly with me when she has been drinking is sending mixed signals. Oh, well, I’d probably screw up a real relationship with her, anyway. Still, I would like to give it a try.
If I was in a relationship, I sure as hell wouldn’t lie to her. I have never been deceitful to any of my girlfriends. That is the best way I know of to start trouble, based on what I see, with my friends. If you feel you have to lie, or sneak around, to get to do what you want, your relationship is already in trouble. You and your mate are supposed to be equal partners in the relationship, with equal rights and freedoms. The only time you should try to tell them what not to do is if they (or you) could be hurt by it. And I am not talking about hurt feelings.
Strange reasons why people were dumped.
I don’t know. If she is taking a picture, that seems a bit morbid to me. But she could be sending or receiving a text.
The U.S. needs to consider this option. Surely there must be someone in that country who is intelligent enough, yet not insane, that wants the job, and can get the backing required to run a campaign.
Smooth move, kid.
Before and after ISIS: Temple of Bel, Palmyra, Syria.
More here. War is one thing, but vandalising historical sites just because you have different beliefs is inexcusable. But, then, no one ever suggested ISIS were nice people.
Italy’s Mount Etna volcano erupting perfect smoke rings.

I had never heard of this before. This phenomenon is called ‘rainbow airglow’, and was captured over the Azores islands in Portugal last month. The colours are actually always there, but it takes the disturbance of an approaching storm to make them more visible.
I tried to learn where this photo was taken, but all of the Google reverse image search results were in Russian, and using Google translate did not give any details. So all I know is that they are Lenticular clouds over extinct volcanos somewhere in Russia,
Awesome photo of the photographer standing on the rim of the Mauna Kea volcano’s crater, with the arm of the Milky Way overhead. Did I mention I think it is awesome?
I better play my leg injury for all it’s worth. Because after it heals, I will have no excuse for not getting exercise but laziness.
Especially in light of all the great discoveries it made at Pluto, if New Horizons is not allowed to take on this new mission, it would be a huge error.
Saturn, as seen by Cassini on May 9th, 2007.
The Hubble Space Telescope turned 26 years old on Sunday, April 24. In recognition of that anniversary, the Hubble team released this image showing the telescope’s view of the Bubble Nebula.

You can see an animation that zooms into the Bubble Nebula here.

Thank you to the person who sent me the link to the vintage car photos. They are not really my style, though.
Why make a shifter that operates like this? If so many people are confused as to the operation of it, it can’t be a good design. I assume it was meant as a performance option, allowing the driver to manually shift up or down.
As great as the idea that this ad promotes is, I find it unbelievable. How would a movie theater be able to text everyone in the audience? Or is there some way to do that without having all of their phone numbers? And then there is the theory that none of them turned off their phones before entering the theater. Which would make them all the same kind of jerks who would text and drive.
And actually bragging about indulging in a dangerous and illegal activity is almost as dumb as doing it.
The new Ford GT is in very high demand. So there will be a lot of disappointed prospective owners.
I’ve heard of two wheel drive, and four wheel drive, but never one wheel drive. Heck, if it is still moving, keep it floored.
I imagine other car guys (and girls) have seen a lot of complaints about the new Dodge Chargers only being built in the 4 door body style. Many people don’t think a performance automobile should have four doors. Well, if a 4 door can move like the Charger, who cares how many doors it has? And, as I think the picture below shows, even a station wagon can be good looking. But I do agree that 2 door cars are the best looking.
Ford Mustang GT S550. I almost didn’t recognise it, with all of the body modifications.
I was getting ready for a tag sale one summer day. Since it was so humid out, I decided to stay inside my air-conditioned house and mark the special stickers I had bought for the sale. Then I slapped them on my blouse, ran outside, stuck them on the appropriate items and rushed back inside. Later that day a UPS man came by the house with a delivery. I noticed that as I was signing for the package, he seemed ill at ease. It was only after he left that I noticed there was one sticker still attached to the front of my blouse. It read “Make me an offer.”
A man with no arms walked up to a bar and asked for a beer. The bartender shoved the foaming glass in front of him. “Look,” said the customer, “I have no arms – would you please hold the glass up to my mouth?” “Sure”, said the bartender, and he did. “Now,” said the customer, “I wonder if you’d be so kind as to get my handkerchief out of my pocket and wipe the foam off my mouth.” “Certainly.” And it was done. If,” said the armless man, “you’d reach in my right hand pants pocket, you’ll find the money for the beer.” The bartender got it. “You’ve been very kind,” said the customer. “Just one thing more. Where is the men’s room?” “Out the door,” said the bartender, “turn left, walk two blocks, and there’s one in the filling station on the corner.”
A gang of robbers broke into a lawyer’s club by mistake. The old legal lions gave them a fight for their life and their money. The gang was very happy to escape. “It ain’t so bad,” one crook noted, “We got $25 between us.” The boss screamed, “I warned you to stay clear of lawyers–we had $100 when we broke in!”
“May I take your order?” the waiter asked.
“Yes, how do you prepare your chickens?” replied the customer.
“Nothing special, sir,” he replied. “We just tell them straight out that they’re going to die.”
Little Johnny was practicing the violin in the living room while his Uncle was trying to read in the den. The family dog was lying in the den, and as the screeching sounds of little Johnny’s violin reached his ears, he began to howl loudly. Uncle listened to the dog and the violin as long as he could. Then he jumped up, slammed his paper to the floor and yelled above the noise, “For pity’s sake, can’t you play something the dog doesn’t know!”
One mother with three active boys was playing cops and robbers in the back yard after dinner on a summer evening. One of the boys “shot” his mother and yelled, “Bang, bang you’re dead.” She slumped to the ground and when she didn’t get up right away, a neighbor ran over to see if she had been hurt in the fall. As the neighbor bent over, the overworked mother opened one eye and said, “Shhh. Don’t give me away. It’s the only chance I get to rest.”
The cops came to my door today to say that my dog was chasing someone on a bike, but I told them they had the wrong house because my dog doesn’t own a bike!
A couple in their nineties are both having problems remembering things. During a checkup, the doctor tells them that they’re physically okay, but they might want to start writing things down to help them remember .. Later that night, while watching TV, the old man gets up from his chair. ‘Want anything while I’m in the kitchen?’ he asks. “Will you get me a bowl of ice cream?” “Sure..” “Don’t you think you should write it down so you can remember it?” she asks. “No, I can remember it..” “Well, I’d like some strawberries on top, too. Maybe you should write it down, so as not to forget it?” He says, “I can remember that. You want a bowl of ice cream with strawberries.” “I’d also like whipped cream. I’m certain you’ll forget that – write it down?” she asks. Irritated, he says, “I don’t need to write it down, I can remember it! Ice cream with strawberries and whipped cream – I got it, for goodness sake!” Then he toddles into the kitchen. After about 20 minutes, The old man returns from the kitchen and hands his wife a plate of bacon and eggs. She stares at the plate for a moment. “Where’s my toast?”
An elderly couple had dinner at another couple’s house, and after eating, the wives left the table and went into the kitchen. The two gentlemen were talking, and one said, “Last night we went out to a new restaurant and it was really great, I would recommend it very highly.” The other man said, “What is the name of the restaurant?” The first man thought and thought and finally said, “What is the name of that flower you give to someone you love? You know, the one that’s red and has thorns?” “Do you mean a rose?” “Yes, that’s the one,” replied the man. He then turned toward the kitchen and yelled, “Rose, what’s the name of that restaurant we went to last night?”
A senior citizen is chatting with his 80-year-old buddy. “So I hear you’re getting married?” “Yep!” “Do I know her?” “Nope!” “This woman, is she good looking?” “Not really.” “Is she a good cook?” “Nah, she can’t cook too well.” “Does she have lots of money?” “Nope! Poor as a church mouse.” “Well, then, is she good in bed?” “I don’t know.” “Why in the world do you want to marry her then?” “Because she can still drive!”
Morris, an 82 year-old man, went to the doctor to get a physical. A few days later, the doctor saw Morris walking down the street with a gorgeous young woman on his arm. A couple of days later, the doctor spoke to Morris and said, “You’re really doing great, aren’t you?” Morris replied, “Just doing what you said, Doc – ‘Get a hot mamma and be cheerful.”’ The doctor said, “I didn’t say that. I said, ‘You’ve got a heart murmur – be careful.'”
