Found a couple faux posters so I figured I'd steal them an post them here. Well done whoever created these!!
Not sure where this shot was taken. Notice the snow in the background, not Columbus or Oshkosh or Madison . . .Crown Point?
Pirates use to be such a fun topic but all of a sudden REAL pirates are in the news stealing oil tankers. I have to wonder what the pirates are going to do with the tankers, sneak them into some secret port and fill up their cars?
Have you seen the boats the pirates are using? A large wave can tip them over. I don't understand how a HUGE oil tanker can be hijacked. It's not like the pirates are hiding behind a large wave and surprised them. Do they not have radar???
Seriously - if this is a real problem it is an easy one to fix. LARGE GUNS! You have a ship with 100 million dollars of crude oil and you can not protect it from a fishing vessel?? Hello?? Knock knock anyone home?
I see Fox News is blaming Johnny Depp! From the people that pushed George W. Bush on us!
"The fact is that pop culture finds evil far more interesting than those who fight it, with the killer being cool and the Christian always the punch line.
So, as this chaos continues offshore and oil prices shoot up, remember who to thank. It’s that little fella from “21 Jump Street,” the man who broke Winona’s heart and made eyeliner for men cool again: Mr. Depp.
Next time you see him, yank off a nipple ring for me."
What a bunch of freaking buffoons!
I had to convert the tiny unfinished bathroom in the basement into
Today marks day 21 since I bottled Sean's West Coast Blaster so I thought I'd break one out and try it (last night). Plus I had to take a gravity reading to see what the alcohol content was. WHOOP!!! 7.0% Yee Haw! And it tasted mighty fine!! Loads of malt and hops but balanced. I'd say it needs one more week to carb up and age a little and we're good to go.
I think I'm suffering from some envy issues or something. As we were driving to worktoday I spotted something in the car that reminded me of a dream and a half that I had. The dream started two nights ago but Milo woke me up and it was not completed, but I remembered enough to say . . ."that's odd".
Well it continued last night to it's, sort of, completion in a vague way, and it came to me between Sun Prairie and Columbus.
I'm in a group of people and for some reason being honored for something and the way everyone is honoring me is that they are all giving me . . . . . . . . . their tape measures!! Yea, tape measures. I had hundreds of them. What the hell does THAT mean!! I already have three! What will I do with hundreds of tape measures.
Now granted I've always had a fondness for tape measures but tape measures as a sign of appreciation?? Is this what carpenters do when one of their own is killed on the job? They toss their tape measures into the coffin?
One interpretation is
"To see or use a measuring tape in your dream, suggests that you are comparing yourself to others. The dream may be a metaphor on how you "measure up" to others. You may be feeling some self-doubt or that you are not good enough.
I'm not seeing or using, I'm getting, perhaps it means I SHOULD compare myself to others. Perhaps people are wondering "Why does he not have more self-doubt, what is wrong with him".
Dreams are weird.
120 years ago today a 80-ton sperm whale being chased by the Essix, a whaling boat, turned around and rammed the ship twice sinking it. The 20 members of the crew escaped on life boats and started on an 83 day journey back to land.
Most of the crew resorted to cannibalism during the long journey and at one point the men drew straws to determine which of the men would be shot in order to provide sustenance for the others.
MAN - YOU DO NOT WANT TO DRAW THE SHORT STRAW!!!
Herman Melville's classic novel Moby Dick was inspired in part by the story of the Essex.
And one last bit of news - COULD YOU DO THIS?
In professional golf J.P. Hayes was in a pickle.
Professional golf is a sport that is self-policed, a sport in which integrity is as important as winning titles and cheating is practically non-existent.
Last week Hayes was in a PGA Qualifying Tournament when he noticed he was not playing the same ball on a hole that he had started with. He conferred with the judges and he gave himself a 2 stroke penalty.
Later that night he was sitting in his hotel and he realized that the ball he was using was a non-conforming PGA ball, one that was sent to him to try out but was not approved by the PGA.
There was nothing he could do! I called the tournament and disqualified himself and by doing so he is not eligible to play on the PGA tour this year, which cost him probebly about $500,000.
Now THAT is honesty.
