Cowboys in Brooklyn

NYPD officers like to say 'they see everything on their job.'  But here's a new one.  A rogue bull calf went on the lam in Brooklyn Tuesday, escaping a slaughter house — breaking free from its captors and causing a rodeo-style ruckus in the heart of stroller mom turf.   Emergency Services Unit cops shot the bull with an air-powered tranquilizer pistol, corralled it into a horse trailer, and gave it to a New Jersey animal sanctuary

Horrific Statistic

4 times more people die of "sand cave-ins" than shark attacks each year.  most of the victims are children.

A group of golfers photographed this week playing a round at the Beacon Rock Golf Course in North Bonneville, Washington, while a devastating wildfire raged in the tree-lined hills behind them. The striking image of intrepid players putting calmly against an apocalyptic backdrop attests to the absurdity of the sport

Cheaters

Academic cheating and plagiarism have increased dramatically as students struggle to keep up with the expectations and demands of our current education system. Furthermore, the advent of new technologies makes it much easier for students to cheat than ever before

Eighty percent of married men cheat in America. The rest cheat in Europe.

Bolsover Castle in Derbyshire, which is built on an ancient burial ground, has been voted the 'spokiest' by the 1800 people who manage such historical sites in England.  The ghost of a boy is seen holding visitors' hands without them noticing.  Other events include strange footsteps and slamming doors.  People also said they had felt like they were being pushed, had cold sensations and heard muffled voices.


Lovely Caribbean Scene??

Sorry, its the eastern coast of Scotland.  The warm gulf stream brings palm trees and flowers common to the Caribbean.

the slinky

 Richard James was a marine engineer employed at the Cramp Shipyard outside Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, during World War II. One day in 1943, as James was devising a spring that would hold shipboard marine torsion meters steady, one of the springs fell off his desk, springing end over end across the floor. Impressed and intrigued by the simplicity of it, James went home and told his wife he had a great idea for a new toy.

The slinky has found many other applications. During the Vietnam War, U.S. soldiers used Slinkys as mobile radio antennas. Over 250 million Slinkys have been sold.

Black Bear Den




https://www.bear.org/website/bear-pages/black-bear/hibernation/20-digging-a-den.html

When biologists discovered the many metabolic changes that let black and grizzly bears hibernate up to 7 ½ months without eating, drinking, urinating, or defecating, they realized that body temperature was only a small part of hibernation. ...Black bears are now considered highly efficient hibernators.

  • There were 13 people at the Last Supper;
  • Judas, who betrayed Jesus, is thought to have been the 13th guest to sit down to the Last Supper;
  • In Norse mythology, a dinner party of the gods was ruined by the 13th guest called Loki;
  • Hindus believed that it was unlucky for 13 people to gather in one place;
  • Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, 14th century, he says "and on a Friday fell all this mischance."

ENJOY SHOOTIN YOUR LONGBOW with Gary Chynne

Why college soccer isn't good enough

1. too little
2. too late
3. lack ofsufficient coaching
4. lack of international play

More Ridiculous English Sports.

Thousands of conker fans descended on the village of Southwick in Northamptonshire (UK) to watch the 230 competitors from 14 countries fight it out with conks.   Conking is a child game played for hundreds of years.  Competitors attached a 20" string to a horse chestnut and swing it at their opponent's in an attempt to smash their conk.  The winner this year in the 'men's' was an 85 year old.   And they say the English aren't boring.

Instead of looking for Conspiracy vides; I've been watching bushcraft, survival, and gear videos. This one has more drama than the latest Bruce Willis movie - "Overnite Winter in the Woods, almost naked."


Overnite Winter in the Woods, almost naked.
One of my old golfing buddies was a flight engineer on a bomber in WWII.  He said that the Flight Engineer was charged with repairing the plane while it was in flight!  His plane was shot down over the Alps.  He parachuted out and spent the next 3 nights in the high alps without so much as a blanket.  He was then captured and was a POW for the rest of the war.  

Early Bible


A text that may be the oldest copy of a gospel known to exist — a fragment of the Gospel of Mark that was written during the first century, before the year 90 — is set to be published. Some scholars believe Mark’s to be the first gospel.  The fragment  was recovered with other documents used to make a mask of an Egyptian mummy.  Many scholars believe that the gospels of Luke, Matthew, and probably Mark were compiled from a common older source, a collections of Jesus sayings, called the ‘Q source or Q document. ‘ That source, as yet undiscovered, may have been an oral tradition that originated closer to the time of Jesus, or a document written in Greek, or both.

Game Changing Roman Artifacts

Archeologists have found more than 400 handwritten wooden tablets at a construction site that detail Roman life in London as early as 56 AD much earlier than previous theories.  Finds suggest a more developed society than expected, incluing buisness transactions, evidence of schooling and the oldest reference to London as London.


Researchers believe this tablet, is the earliest ever reference to London predating Tacitus' mention of London in his Annals which were produced about 50 years later.  Itt reads "Londinio Mogontio" which translates to "'In London, to Mogontius".

More thoughts that will Pzzz folks

One of the most compelling arguments in favor of easily available birth control and abortion (morally I do not condone) is that the dramatic reduction in violent crime is because of these policies.  

A True American Icon

I love Yogi Berra.  Berra's "It ain't over 'til it's over" and "It's déjà vu all over again," his most famous quotes, might not have been. Berra admitted that "I never said most of the things I said." Here are a few that certianly were his:
-We madbut even Berra admitted that "I never said most of the things I said."ven Berra admitted that "I never said most of the things I said."

- too many wrong mistakes.

-The future ain't what it used to be.
-You can observe a lot by watching.
-In theory there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice there is.
-A nickel ain't worth a dime anymore.
-It ain't the heat, it's the humility.

I poke again...

I've observed thru the years the Pharmaceutical Reps that stop by the clinics and doctors and etc.  I can recognize them by the valise they carry and way they look - beautiful, handsome, greek gods and goddesses.  I am observant.  I am horny. I am obsessively preoccupied by beauty. I golfed with a drug rep, a handsome college fullback with muscles and charm.  Just curious I guess, has anyone ever seen a plain looking drug rep?

I'm nearly cured...

of my conspiracy theories obsession.  I'm still one of, maybe the absolutist, a skeptical and (because it tastes good) cynical SOB.  Yet I've been flummoxed by watching the endless threads of ideas about the Las Vegas Tragedy and the millions of fools posting some kind of video that sets the record straight.  I think most want to be able to understand events so that it restores order to the mind.  Such a bizarre event, we think requires some extraordinary explanation; to give us as much Peace of Mind as possible.  I'm sure that those involved in solving and understanding such problems, i.e my brother, are likely for now to be dumbfounded and without an explanation. 
I still believe in some conspiracies (JFK; 9/11; et al) but this event/tragedy makes me ask for a time out.  Overwhelming.
Be vigilant but most of all be humble and kind.

If only I had the cash.

One of the world's rarest and most expensive single malt whiskies has gone on sale. The Private Collection Glenlivet was matured for 70 years and just 40 decanters are going on the market for $45,000 each. The spirit went into its cask in 1943, when World War Two was at its height and whisky was scarce.  A few years ago I bought a bottle of 50 year old whiskey in Scotland as a gift for my doctor (he collects whiskeys) in St. Lucia. I had a $75.00 taste. Horrible.  Oh well.

bansky (grafetti) art

bansky s girl with balloon


Banksy is a British street artist and activist who, despite worldwide fame, has maintained anonymity. Banksy’s art acts as cultural criticism and commentary, targeting established social and political agendas with a unique style of illustration made using stencils and spray paint. Banksy’s work is largely site-specific, often with an element of multi-media or performance as an accompaniment. “The art world is the biggest joking,” he said. “It’s a rest home of the overprivileged, the pretentious, and the weak.” Although details of the artist’s life are largely unknown, it is thought that Banksy was born in Bristol, United Kingdom, circa 1974, and started with a career in the city as a graffiti artist.Better Out Than In, Banksy’s month-long residency in New York during October 2013, featured a man selling the artist’s paintings for $60 each near Central Park. In 2015, Banksy opened Dismaland Bemusement Park, a temporary art exhibition that functioned as a theme park. After a 36-day run, its workers and materials were sent to the Calais migrant camp to build additional housing. Banksy lives and works in the United Kingdom.

Some of his street murals have sold in the millions.

re: Netflix's Heroin(e)

I have difficulty watching this film, it is so sad.  Huntington was once a great place.  No more.

About 10 years ago my youngest was out clubbing and someone slipped something into his drink.  He wound up comatose and in ICU for a week.  He has never been a drug user.  Toxicology found a little trace of alcohol in his system, but it was not able to determine what nearly killed him.

Sad sign of the times when...

People get really passionately fired up about whether or not a football player stands or kneels; and couldn't care less that the Gov't is ravaging the poor and defenseless folks.  Jesus Mary and Joseph, this is what Orwell was talking about.  There are people who are dying because of US Policies and the Story of Today is how many players took a knee.  BTW, Colin's original statement related to the poor treatment of Veterans.

'Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing.'  Always wondered where that came from.

Sologamy

An Italian woman has married herself in a ceremony complete with white dress, three-layer wedding cake, bridesmaids and 70 guests. The ceremony carries no legal weight.  Ms Mesi is part of a growing trend for self-marriage - dubbed "sologamy" - in countries around the world.  Proponents of such ceremonies say it is about self-love and acceptance, and claiming the social affirmation normally reserved for couples who wed. What can I say.

A farmer with a sense of humour


Gambling saves lives.

A 72-year-old man who collapsed at home on his own was saved by two betting shop employees who noticed he had failed to place his twice-daily £1 bet.   Retired chicken factory worker Michael Base, of Diss, Norfolk, UK was found after spending four days in a diabetic coma. Betfred staff Jamie Scales and Jack Bell became concerned when Mr Base, a regular for 13 years, did not turn up for several days. They found him at his home.  If betting saves lives, my father would still be alive at 95.
