How to Kill a Squirrel without killing a squirrel

And there are many, many times that I’d love to kill our local squirrel thieves. Some scientist or other has discovered that squirrels don’t just rely on their sense of smell to re-discover their buried nuts. Why does writing that sentence make my buttocks clench? Anyway, the scientists found out... Sign in to see full entry.

A 20 mile wide Meteor crater in Greenland?

This is the first time a crater of this size has been found under a continental ice shelf. According to the scientists,it’s only a puppy of a crater, being anywhere from 3 million years old to 12,000 years old -- just a smidgin before my time. The crater was apparently caused by a half mile wide... Sign in to see full entry.

Is Mankind Aggressive or Defensive?? (1)

Let me tell you a story. When I was a pre-teen at school, we used to have a weekly period about religion. During that hour all we ever seemed to get were exhortations never, ever, to speak to, look at, or have contact of any kind with the people from another religion. Those people were evil and were...

Weird Mind

“I wish you’d stop saying that.” I was becoming ever so slightly annoyed. We were driving along in our own neighborhood, towards town. “You mean that you have a weird mind?” my other half pretended not to understand. II was saved from answering and snarling by a parka and a pair of trousers. The... Sign in to see full entry.

Never Assume

Did I ever tell you about my visit to the old farts clinic? No? Do you care? No? Tough! At one point the clinician in charge asked us all what our dominant hand was. I almost answered that my wife had the dominant hand, but as the majority of attendees were women I decided to shut up. “Try using... Sign in to see full entry.

Passenger Carrying Drone

In my part of the country, the passenger carrying drone was announced on the 6 pm newscast. The hilarious part of the news was made by the lady news reader. After all the facts, like Made in China - surprise, surprise. Only one passenger allowed, weighing no more than 220 pounds. Flies at 35 mph, at... Sign in to see full entry.

Facebook is so Yesterday

We were at pre-teen’s party the other day. Their parents and us were talking about Facebook, messaging, emails and tweeting. The pre-teen butted in, after all, it was their party. “Facebook is so yesterday.” “Why is it so yesterday? Now that nobody answers phones when they find out it’s not their...

10 Trillion Frames Per Second???

A camera that can take 10 trillion frames per second? That’s what the headline said. The figure just went over my head. It was incomprehensible. What did puzzle me, was how that figure was reached. Who counted it? I remember reading once that it would take someone 57 years to count to a trillion, in... Sign in to see full entry.

Walls 4 - Final

We have the 48 contiguous States separated by canals; navigable canals with constant convoys of barges. We have the 3rd largest nation on the planet, capable of putting humans on the moon and a survey vehicle on Mars. That same nation is being pummeled by hurricanes, and seems to be unable to stop...

Wall 3.00

OK, where were we? Ah yes! The States are all separated by canals, and as KABU suggested, goods are all being transported via barge. An excellent idea. I don’t know if you're aware of this, but in this vast country, goods transported by road are normally carried in semi trucks, or big rigs,... Sign in to see full entry.
