12,400 gallons of beer!

After my comments against North Korea it seems I have lost some valued readers in fear of reprisals.

I was thinking of what the U.S. could do in response but it seems North Korea only have WIN98 computers which are unhackable.  We could take down their electric grid but that is only up 4 hours a day anyway. Disrupt their food chain?  hmmmm 

North Korea only allows 14 hairstyles for woman and 14 styles for men - perhaps there is something there that we can mess with their lives.     

In other news Sony has decided that their movie "The Interview" has gotten such bad press they will re film parts of the flick and to ease international tensions instead of North Korea leader Kim Jong-un being the target it will now me Russian leader Vladimir Putin.

The one sure thing on Wall Street is the Santa Rally. Happens every year like clockwork.  You can bet on it.  It's easy to explain.  Around the 1st of December all of the Mutual Fund managers start to dump their under-performing stocks so when their year end reports come out it shows only good stocks. This causes the Dow to take a small tumble.

Then, once all the the reports are printed they start to buy back all of those under-performing companies because they are now cheap and BAM - Santa rally!

If Santa Claus should fail to call
Bears may come to Broad & Wall

The Marshall City Council has adopted a much more lenient snowmobile ordinance making everyone happy.  Only one state in America has more snowmobiles then Wisconsin and that is Minnesota.

A snowmobile traveling at 15mph emits 73db measured at 50 feet away. Far below normal city ordinances.  A lawn mower is 80 db.  Just sayin'.

OK OK - I'm in enough trouble as it is!!  :-)

Of course everyone was watching the football games last night between Tennessee and Jacksonville  . . . .right?  Well the fun thing happened on the very final play of the game when Sen'derrick Marks sacked the QB earning him a $600,000 bonus for the year.  His contract said if you get 8 sacks you get an extra $600,000.   He was very happy.

I have issues with the National Christmas tree

Is that actually a tree??  Looks more like the National Christmas Cone to me. Seriously?

*********************************

It's not looking like Christmas at all.

The last time we did not have snow on the ground for Christmas was 2006, before that 2002 and then we go all the way back to 1982.  YET - we only have snow on the ground 60% of the time in the last 108 years!

The warmest high Christmas was 54 in 1982 (I believe we had a thunderstorm that day - I remember)
The coldest low was -21 in 2000
Largest snowfall is 3.5 inches 1950
Highest snow depth is 16 inches in 1985

Going to be close this year with a group of unsettled weather coming the middle of next week.  The problem is that it might be snow, it might be rain it might be slush.  It WILL be windy.  And after Christmas  . . .winter shows it's ugly head and we turn c c c cold.

Things you never thought you want to know!

A sneeze travels at 100mph

There is more bacteria in your mouth then people in the world - on a side note people get all weird when they see a human and dog kiss (you know like a lick on a puppy or something)  YEW - dog germs.  Well, we have MUCH more crap in our mouths they dogs do!  It's THEM that should be worried.

Your foot can produce one pint of sweat a day!

Your eyes can have UP TO a 576 megipixle resolution.

And finally!

Want to see what 12,400 gallons of beer looks like fermenting  . . . . IN MY BASEMENT??
