I have been getting a few comments, lately, where the email address is a corporate one. I am hoping they are just spam, and not people who are browsing my site while on company time.
…because iPhone owners don’t already complain enough about poor battery life.
This new Pokémon Go app seems like a good thing, in that it gets players outside, and encourages them to interact with others. As with most things, though, unfortunately, there is a downside. A potentially dangerous one, in this case.
And, of course, there are the fools who focus more on their phones than where they are walking, and hurt themselves.
Some people are so obsessed by the game that they will pay someone $20 an hour to train them in it, although the training seems like more of an option, with the main service being more of a “hired gun”. Which seems to defeat the point of the game.
But there are some places where the game really shouldn’t be played. I can understand officials asking people to not play in places like the Holocaust Museum. Visitors should be focused on the exhibits at these places. To play games there seems very disrespectful. Game designers should be ashamed for including places like this and Arlington Cemetery in the app.
And when the game causes a supposed professional to interrupt a co-worker on live TV, I would say it has gone too far.
The search term “Brexit” has had more usage, lately, than “porn”. Which could just mean that the perverts already have their favorite sites bookmarked. (kidding)
It seems that ISIS is getting their ideas about how to sexually brutalize women and children from extreme porn. Further proof that this is NOT a religious organization.
People are ordering at Starbucks under the name “black lives matter”.
Do you believe in miracles? I don’t.
I also don’t believe in prayer. Especially while you are moving with your eyes closed.
I had heard of the Warsaw ghetto, but didn’t know many details. The rest of these worst of Nazi behaviors from World War II are quite shocking, but deserve to be known.
Who remembers Jeri Ryan, aka Seven of Nine, from Star Trek? She is featured in this week’s issue. Even if you are not a fan, there is much more to see here.
I started smoking cigarettes as a teen. Between not being able to afford to buy them full time, my Dad giving me heck, when he smelled smoke on me, and my fingers turning brown, I decided to quit. I wasn’t getting any positive effects from them, anyway, it was mainly just the desire to be cool. Now, I am glad I stopped. Smokers seem to be some of the filthiest people around, just casually butting their smokes anywhere, and tossing them on the ground, And, as the article states, some of the worst polluters.
A tribute to husbands.
Imagine being buried alive. Sounds horrible, right? Imagine being rescued from that fate by grave robbers.
Would you trust a mugshot that was created solely from DNA to catch a killer?
Bruce Springsteen’s “Dancing In the Dark” performed in a 1950’s rock and roll style. Interesting.
I had always believed that Adele was not a diva. I guess I was wrong. I just hope she tipped the poor worker who handled this request well.
One week until I am scheduled to attend the Nazareth concert in Saskatoon. Great old band.
They just made musicians better back then. There is seriously no one that is able to outplay any of these men today.
I have never, and likely will never, understand why people will pay such outrageous prices for food. Yeah, so it’s different, and rare.
A new species of dinosaur has been discovered here, in Alberta. I don’t know why this link appears as a photo, but, if you click on it, it will take you to the article.
Can you find the badger in this herd of zebras? I went crosseyed after a few minutes, and gave up.
So, a bullfighter was killed, over the weekend. And what was the response? No, not ending this particular form of animal cruelty. They have decided to kill the bull’s mother. “To end the bloodline” What a pitiful attitude. As if it wasn’t normal for an animal to try to defend itself from an attack.
Fish hiding from predators inside jellyfish.
Animals one wouldn’t normally assume are deadly.
Apparently snakes can’t move on fleece.
Is George Bush senile, or just still a huge idiot? Or is it okay to dance at the funeral of murdered police officers? It depends on whether Michelle Obama is laughing with him, or at him, I guess. Some people are wondering if he has started drinking heavily again, but most of the comments I have seen consider this behavior inappropriate.Considering that this fool became President twice, Trump getting elected suddenly doesn’t seem so far fetched.
” Ummm…you didn’t see anything strange, right?”
Why do people even read these rags?
Don’t smell the flowers.
2000-year-old Roman shoe found in a well, in Saalburg.
I am not necessarily a morning person, but, fortunately, I have no problem functioning well early in the day, if I need to. At my last job, I usually got up an hour or two before work started, and I stayed in a camp right beside the work site. Now, even though I am not working, I still usually get up between 6 and 7 and cook myself breakfast.
Yes, but who knows what kind of odd things they might be doing, then, that will make that second photo look “normal”.
Things like this.
Poor student’s bad career choices: tattoo “artist”, or cake decorator. I don’t know how either of those people keep their jobs if they can’t spell correctly.
Even though anyone can make a mistake. Some are fairly easily correctable, though. One would assume that this crew inspected their work once they were done.
Is anyone else surprised at how good of artists most of these kids are?
Wired magazine’s space photos of the week.
A new infrared image of the Orion Nebula has shown astronomers previously unseen details of its contents.
The ESA is working on a plan to clean up space junk.
The Curiosity rover’s recent safe mode shutdown was just a simple software glitch, and the robotic explorer is back to full service.
So much evidence is available, yet some people still deny that global warming is a real thing.
Some cool (literally) ice formations in Antarctica.
A Bosnian man whose house has been hit by meteorites 6 times believes that aliens are targeting him.
Mount Rainier and the Milky Way.
I do love Milky Way photos.
Especially when they move.
The Juno spacecraft captured this view of Jupiter and some of its larger moons as it approached the planet.
The first photo, from Jupiter’s orbit, with labels added, has been received from Juno. It is a low resolution view of the planet and a few of its moons. High resolution photos will not be available for a few more weeks. When Juno is at the closest point in its orbit to Jupiter, it will be only 4000 kilometers away, as opposed to the 4 million kilometer distance when this photo was taken, so those images will be awesome. But this is a unique image of the planet. We are so far away from Jupiter that, when we look at it from Earth, we see a mostly fully illuminated view, not the half lit version seen here.
To give credit where due, the explanations in the post, above, were stolen from the Bad Astronomy blog.
This photo of Jupiter being occulted by our moon was captured by Cristian Fattinnanzi on the 15th of July 2012.
850 horsepower in a street car? Current models have just over 700, the most in any current domestic vehicle.
More odd looking concept cars. No wonder why they never went to production.
Jay Leno destroyed any admiration I might have had for him with his “big baby” move, after his new show failed, and he forced his way back into The Tonight Show. The man does know cool cars, though, and the Chrysler 300 series are among the coolest.
A murderer is condemned to death. He has to choose between three rooms. The first is full of raging fires, the second is full of assassins with loaded guns, and the third is full of lions that haven’t eaten in 3 years. Which room is safest for him? Congratulations to all who answered: The lions that haven ‘t eaten in 3 years are most likely dead, and, therefore, not a danger.
sitting at a corner table. He gets up, staggers to the table, leans over, looks the biggest, meanest biker in the face and says: “I went by your grandma’s house today and I saw her in the hallway buck naked. Man, she is one fine looking woman!” The biker looks at him and doesn’t say a word. His buddies are confused, because he is one bad biker and would fight at the drop of a hat. The drunk leans on the table again and says: “I got it on with your grandma and she is good, the best I ever had!” The biker’s buddies are starting to get really mad but the biker still says nothing. The drunk leans on the table one more time and says, “I’ll tell you something else, boy, your grandma liked it!” At this point the biker stands up, takes the drunk by the shoulders looks him square in the eyes and says, “Grandpa,……. Go home, you’re drunk!”
Do I share all of that money with my partner?”
Three men were sitting on a park bench. The one in the middle was reading a newspaper; the others were pretending to fish. They baited imaginary hooks, cast lines, and reeled in their catch. A passing policeman stopped to watch the spectacle and asked the man in the middle if he knew the other two. “Oh yes” he said. “They’re my friends.” “In that case, warned the officer, you’d better get them out of here!” “Yes, sir! the man replied, and he began rowing furiously.
