People say 60 is the new 40. The State Trooper didn’t agree.

The spammers also seem to have discovered my site. I have been getting 2 to 6 spam comments per day, lately. Sorry, assholes, you are wasting your time. Even if I did publish comments, I would have to approve them first. And I surely would not promote your supposed products.


Whaaaaat? Your fingerprints can be stolen from photos?

People often seize odd things as signs of good luck. Fortunately, for this business, students in the area did just that.


There was a class action lawsuit settled, in the U.S., where anyone in certain states can join, to receive compensation from milk producers who, it was decided, conspired to artificially inflate the prices of their products. Payments will vary, depending on how many people apply, and could be as much as $50, or as little as a few cents. You can apply for your share here:


I don’t know. Are these things better than skateboards or roller skates?


97% of people who took this quiz could not identify all of the 80’s music videos from one screenshot. Neither could I. I only missed three, though.


I was very disappointed to get only 24 of these 30 questions correct. I considered myself more knowledgeable about science. It was the subject I got the highest marks in, at school.


Johnny Cash was once almost killed by an ostrich.


Don’t ever let anyone tell you that women aren’t just as resourceful, and capable, as men.


Does anyone else think these people are pushing their luck by continuing to live here?


I had to do a bit of searching, when I first saw this story, to make sure it wasn’t an article from The Onion. I don’t think the wind was her biggest problem.


DUDE! That is not what “man’s best friend” means.


Polish fishermen have caught an old, huge Wels catfish, which had eaten a bit of a Nazi SS soldier in the 1940s.

Too bad there wasn’t a name for this item.


Alzheimer’s seems to be spreading.


Yes, as a matter of fact, I do need my driveway shoveled off.




Assholes everywhere.




Only a woman would make this big a deal over a pair of shoes.
No, wait. I take that back. I just remembered those guys who pay thousands of dollars for running shoes they won’t even wear.


Accidents are one thing So you are clumsy. The people in charge of things like artwork should really be more responsible, though, and display these items in a more protective environment. But destroying historical artifacts on purpose just makes you an asshole.–10995

Now why would anyone dump used toilet paper in an empty lot?

I don’t think we are ready, just yet, for robots in our daily lives.







A rare, but natural phenomenon recently lit up the skies in Northern Ontario.


Remember, 12 years ago, when the Huygens probe descended to the surface of Saturn’s moon Titan? I recall being very excited when I first saw this video, back then.


You can now obtain real time images of our Sun.

Cheating on diesel emission tests seems to have been rampant in the automotive industry. First VW, and now Renault. Chrysler has also been charged.


A very nice ’65 Chrysler 300, with power to match.



How, exactly, does someone manage this?


This would take considerably more “talent”.


Probably one of the worst people on the road, though, is the one who should really know better, but is too lazy to care. Hey, doofus, you know, that structure can be disassembled, fairly easily, so it fits inside your van.


Is this what they mean by a “shitstorm”?










My wife Andrea found out that our dog (a Schnauzer) could hardly hear, so she took it to the veterinarian. The vet found that the problem was hair in the dog’s ears. He cleaned both ears, and the dog could then hear fine. The vet then proceeded to tell Andrea that, if she wanted to keep this from recurring, she should go to the pharmacy and get some “Nair” hair remover and rub it in the dog’s ears once a month. Andrea went to the store and bought some “Nair” hair remover. At the register, the pharmacist told her, “If you’re going to use this under your arms, don’t use deodorant for a few days.” Andrea said, “I’m not using it under my arms.” The pharmacist said, “If you’re using it on your legs, don’t use body lotion for a couple of days.” Andrea replied, “I’m not using it on my legs either. If you must know, I’m using it on my Schnauzer.” The pharmacist said, “Well, stay off your bicycle for at least a week.”


Hospital regulations require a wheelchair for patients who are being discharged. However, while my friend was working as a student nurse,  She found one elderly gentleman – already dressed and sitting on the bed with a suitcase at his feet – who insisted he didn’t need her help to leave the hospital. After a chat about rules being rules, he reluctantly let her wheel him to the elevator. On the way down,  she asked if his wife was meeting him. “I don’t know,” he said. “She’s still upstairs in the bathroom changing out of her hospital gown.”
(When I was in the hospital to get my broken leg operated on, I got no wheelchair ride to the exit upon my discharge).


An old fellow came into the hospital truly on death’s door due to an infected gallbladder. The surgeon who removed the gallbladder was adamant that his patients be up and walking in the hall the day after surgery, to help prevent blood clots forming in the leg veins. The nurses walked the patient in the hall as ordered. On the third day the had the old fellow up and the nurse told how he complained bitterly each time they did. The surgeon told them to keep walking him, no matter what. After a fortnight, the patient was ready to go home. His family came to pick him up and thanked the surgeon profusely for what he had done for their father, telling him he was a miracle worker. The surgeon was pleased and appreciated the thanks, but told them that it was really a simple operation and that they had been lucky to get him into the hospital time. “Oh no, doctor, you don’t understand,” they said, “Our father hasn’t walked in over a year!”


Old Dr. Carver still made house calls. One afternoon he was called to the Tuttle house. Mrs. Tuttle was in terrible pain. The doctor came out of the bedroom a minute after he’d gone in and asked Mr. Tuttle, “Do you have a hammer?” A puzzled Mr. Tuttle went to the garage, and returned with a hammer. The doctor thanked him and went back into the bedroom. A moment later, he came out and asked, “Do you have a chisel?” Mr. Tuttle complied with the request. In the next ten minutes, Dr. Carver asked for and received a pair of pliers, a screwdriver, and a hacksaw. The last request got to Mr. Tuttle. He asked, “What are you doing to my wife?” “Not a thing,” replied old doc Carver. “I can’t get my instrument bag open.”
