There was a flurry of activity on my phone, on Sunday morning, over a few hours, as my group of friends exchanged warm fuzzy feelings. It’s nice to be sentimental. I hope everyone had a great Christmas, and has a good New Year.
If I had a child, and I was paying that child’s way through University, if I learned that child was planning to take a course where the subject matter was anime, I would feel I failed, somewhere, as a parent, and we would soon have a very serious discussion. And I wouldn’t care if it was supposed to help them, somehow, in English.
It is usually best to err on the side of caution, but, do phones really identify themselves by make and model on wifi networks? Regardless, this was a very dumb thing to do. The culprit is lucky he didn’t get a beat down for the huge inconvenience to the other passengers, all for a cheap joke.
Actually, I think ANY prank pulled on an airplane is foolish.
When a plane crashes, unfortunately, someone has to clean it up. I can’t help but think that doing something like this for a living must change you as a person, likely for the worse.
Apparently, all you need, to be able to enter a lot of restricted areas, is a high visibility vest and a lot of nerve.
Trump is having trouble getting celebrities to RSVP to his inauguration. Not Alec Baldwin. He even offered to perform.
Well. this is fairly troubling.
The creators and manufacturers of sanitary wipes did not foresee, or did not care, what a problem they would become for the sewer systems of the world. Halifax, however, has had enough.
If your Christmas wasn’t up to expectations, just be glad you don’t live in Augsburg.
Ever wonder what they do with unsold Christmas trees?
With so many people going hungry every day, it should be a crime to waste edible food. There should be more options like this.
As if people in Nigeria didn’t already have enough bad things in their lives, someone tried to import plastic rice into the country to sell.
A few people have asked for more quizzes. To be honest, I had been finding them via the Stumble Upon site, and it hadn’t delivered any in a while. Here’s one that tests your knowledge of the differences between British and American English. I got 22 of 30 correct.
It never fails to amaze me what people decide to stick in their bodily orifices.
What kind of person thinks Disneyland should have bars and tattoo parlors? Surely not parents dealing with kids hopped up on adrenaline and sugar.
It wasn’t that long ago that women, even successful ones, couldn’t get a credit card. Which is surprising, considering the greed which drives big banks.
There’s a lot of freaky looking critters deep in the ocean, as this Russian fisherman often finds out.
This diver has formed a relationship with an Asian sheepshead wrasse, but I suspect the fish is mostly in it for the food the diver gives it.
Snail drinking a dew drop from an acorn head.
What a total waste of time.
Can you find the sheep among the Santas?
Man seems determined to pollute the entirety of the only known planet on which he can live. Whether this can was lost overboard in rough seas, or irresponsibly thrown over by an uncaring soul, it is still disheartening to see.
It’s much worse at the surface, though.
This image appears at first glance to be a desert canyon, perhaps somewhere in the American southwest. It is, however, an image taken with a scanning electron microscope of a microcrack in a small piece of steel. The crack is a mere 67 millionths of a meter (micrometers) wide. Image captured and colored by Martina Dienstleder at FEI Company.
…after all, what is the good of having a billion dollars, besides bragging rights? You could never spend it all.
I learned, at a fairly young age, not to piss off a nun. We had summer school, one year, taught by nuns, and they could be extremely mean even when pushed very lightly.
People who should have known better.
How much spare time must someone have to stack their Spaghetti-O’s? And why prepare them if you obviously weren’t hungry?
Just when you thought you couldn’t take one more second of this failure of a year…
Some people just can’t seem to help trying to cheat at everything they do. VW buying back his car for the purchase price just wasn’t good enough. I suppose he planned to make a lot of money selling the parts. Apparently this has become a common thing with the recalled vehicles, although not normally to this extent.
Whenever I see a lowbrow post a statement about compensating for a small penis, in regard to a lifted truck, I always reply that most of these people actually use them. Just because they are clean, and sitting on pavement, when you see them, doesn’t mean they never get dirty. Or work hard. As this video snows.
Some people seem to have a knack for failing spectacularly.
Norm and Shirley were in a local shopping center just before Christmas. Shirley suddenly noticed that Norm was missing, and as they had a lot to do, she called him on his cell phone. Shirley asked, “Norm, where are you? You know that we have lots to do.” Norm said, “Do you remember the jewelry store we went into about 59 years ago, and you fell in love with a diamond necklace? I could not afford it at the time, and I said that one day I would get it for you.” Little tears started to flow down Shirley’s cheek, and she got all choked up. “Yes, I do remember that shop,” she replied. “Well, I’m in the Hooters next to that store.”
A college teacher reminds her class of tomorrow’s final exam. “Now class, I won’t tolerate any excuses for you not being here tomorrow. I might consider a nuclear attack or a serious personal injury or illness, or a death in your immediate family, but that’s it, no other excuses whatsoever!” A smart ass guy in the back of the room raised his hand and asked, “What would you say if tomorrow I said I was suffering from complete and utter sexual exhaustion?” The entire class is reduced to laughter and snickering. When silence was restored, the teacher smiled knowingly at the student, shaking her head and sweetly said “Well, I guess you’d have to write the exam with your other hand”
Gregory finally found the nerve to tell his fiancée that he had to break off their engagement so he could marry another woman. “Can she cook like I can?” the distraught woman asked between sobs. “Not on her best day,” he replied. “Can she buy you expensive gifts like I do?” “No, she’s broke.” “Well, then, is it sex?” “Nobody does it like you, babe.” “Then what can she do that I can’t?” “Sue me for child support.”
A little old lady from Wisconsin had worked in and around her family dairy farms since she was old enough to walk, with hours of hard work and little compensation. When canned Carnation Milk became available in grocery stores in the 1940s, she read an advertisement offering $5,000 for the best slogan. The producers wanted a rhyme beginning With “Carnation Milk is best of all.” She thought to herself, I know everything there is to know about milk and dairy farms. I can do this! She sent in her entry, and several weeks later, a black car pulled up in front of her house. A large man got out, knocked on her door and said, “Ma’am, the president of Carnation milk absolutely LOVED your entry…so much, in fact, that we are here to award you $1,000, even though we will not be able to use it for our advertisements!” He did, however, have it printed up to hang on his office wall. “Carnation milk is best of all; no tits to pull, no hay to haul, no buckets to wash, no shit to pitch; just poke a hole in the son-of-a-bitch!”
