Let me apologize in advance for the odd layout of this post. I have gone back several times and separated the items that had no spaces, but they just keep getting pushed together while I am doing other things.

Well, I’m starting to wonder if there is, in fact, something to those “reblog and something good will happen” posts, and ignoring them is coming back to haunt me. As if my life wasn’t going badly enough, this week my bank card quit working. I tried it in two different machines, and neither of them could read it. So I went to the nearest bank to get some assistance. I did get my debit card replaced, and a little other business done on Tuesday. Fortunately, I had enough change lying around that I could gather up the $3.50 bus fare. A lot of walking was still involved to get from place to place. Which tried to kill me. If I ever do find another job, it might just succeed. When I got back home I had to lay down and rest for a while. Oh, for the Good Old Days, when I could scamper around for hours. Then, when I got some rest, I went to browse the internet, and found that my computer mouse had quit working. So I just decided to use the touchpad on my laptop. RIGHt! Except that it had also developed issues. It keeps doing strange things,. like grabbing stuff off of the pages I’m looking at, and moving them as I move the mouse. I can’t figure out how to stop this.
Maybe this is my problem.

In 1893, Arctic explorer Fridtjof Nansen of Norway deliberately froze his wooden ship, the Fram, into the drifting sea ice north of Sib, hoping the drifting ice would carry his ship to the North Pole. He was not successful, but next month a group of researchers will duplicate the experiment.

I don’t know if it’s illegal or not, but it does seem odd that anyone was allowed to build atop an international border.
Is this doofus really so dense that he doesn’t get embarrassed?
Is anyone else thinking what I am about the capacity/agility of her throat?
I had no idea people lived so close to Mt. Fuji. Seems like this is a dangerous place to build a house. I know Mount Fuji hasn’t erupted in a long time, but volcanos reawaken all the time.

Well, where in hell do these morons think he came from?

Lightning damage to a tree.
Today I Learned a lightning strike can strip the bark off a tree completely. The reason for this is, when the lightning hits it super heats the water under the bark, creating nearly instantaneous steam pressure. Which blows all the bark off.
Adolf Hitler’s nephew, William Hitler, fought for the United States in the navy against his uncle.
If you’re the CEO of a company, you should really preview the work of your advertising department before it gets published, to avoid embarrassing situations like this.
..and this. Even though this is not advertising. I guess preventing these faux pas would be more of an editor’s responsibility.
No sign/barrier etc?

Was Neil Armstrong killed by incompetent hospital staff?
So satisfying that I was able to convince one blogger that those “big truck = small penis” memes are wrong. He apologized when I complained, and took the post down. I don’t get where the idea that someone who drives a modified vehicle is compensating for something came from, but I used to drive a lifted truck, and I have never received a complaint about my penis. I used to work up North, in the muskeg, and my lifted truck made it a lot easier to get around.
Imagine a car that averaged 170mpg. Imagine that in hybrid mode this range was almost doubled. Imagine that this car ran not on batteries that had to be charged for hours at exotic and hard to find charging stations, but on diesel fuel that you could get at any gas station, and fill up on in under a minute. Imagine that for just $6 worth of that diesel fuel, you could drive for 500 miles. And imagine that, unlike a tesla or even a Prius, this car cost less than $25k.
Such a car was real. It existed. Until the government persecuted the company that designed it.
1949 Delahaye 175
You know its hot when your car melts.
Snowshoe for a horse. Found at 2000m altitude in Norway during rescue archaeology in melting snowfields. The snowshoe dates to the Viking or Medieval period.

wife finds out, she’ll kill me.”– Henny Youngman
At the risk of annoying my readers, here is another shameless plug for my Fundraiser. I could really use some extra funds now. Since my stroke got me kicked out of the place where I wss living I have been staying at a cheap motel until I can find another place I can afford, and I am almost broke. Just in case, I will let everyone know that if I suddenly quit posting updates it will mean that I am living on the street, or something worse, and am no longer able to update the site. I don’t understand what I am doing wrong. Others are raising tens of thousands of dollars on these sites with similar stories. I am not trying to shame anyone into donating, but if all of my readers could find even a spare $50 or so to give, it would add up to something really helpful. And I am desperate at this point. Desperate enough to beg.
