Off for some R&R

We’re taking off for some rest and relaxation for the next week.   We’re riding motorcycles to Pipestem West Virginia.  To get to the hotel we’re staying at you have to take an aerial tram (the only way in).

Pipemain  Pipestem1

Will be back late Thursday (9/29).  Should post on Friday (9/30).   Y’all take care … and be careful out there.


Stuff that makes you go "Ewwww"

 A quart of mucus a day keeps the heebies at bay: The lining of the human sinus normally produces about one quart of mucus every day. This mucus is thin and watery when the nose is healthy. The mucus drains out of the sinuses into the nose and from there runs down the back of the throat. Here it mixes with saliva and is swallowed. People with healthy noses and sinuses do not sense that they are swallowing a quart of nasal drainage every day. 

Why do dogs eat their own poop? Many animals eat poop on a regular basis. These include rabbits, rodents, gorillas, many insects such as dung beetles and flies, and yes, dogs. (Keep that in mind the next time a dog wants to lick you!) Herbivores such as rabbits and rodents eat their own poop because their diet of plants is hard to digest efficiently, and they have to make two passes at it to get everything out of the meal. This is equivalent to a cow chewing its cud, only cows are able to re-eat their food without having to poop it out first. Another reason why animals eat poop is that poop contains vitamins produced by their intestinal bacteria. The animal is unable to absorb the vitamins through the intestinal wall, but can get at them by eating the poop.

Genderless baby "mermaid" born near Moscow

Sirena2A rather unusual child was born in the lying-in hospital in the town of Serpukhov. The baby's legs were fused and resembled a fish tail. The developmental abnormality is called sirenomelia or sympodia.

A local website reports that the mother of the child rejected the offspring. She reportedly said that she did not need a monster and left the premises right away.

According to doctors, the "nymph" mother's life style was pretty loose. "A wide range of factors including STDs and genetic conditions could cause the congenital malformation," said the chief doctor of the lying-in hospital, Vladimir Kim.

Medical statistics show that one case of sirenomelia occurs per 70,000 births. Children with such an abnormality normally last for several weeks or months. The Serpukhov "nymph" died a week later it was born.

Doctors were quite amazed after they autopsied the body of the child. The child's internal organs were either substantially disfigured or missing altogether. One kidney was sitting in the pulmonary area, the other one was in the vicinity of lower extremities. There was no sign of reproductive system. The heart of the child was a three-chamber organ just like of amphibians or fish.

Here’s the story on Pravda

The Gullibility Factor test

Ok…. I guess I’m gullible.  Here’s my score:


As a Learner, you're smart enough to know better, yet you're still not fully informed about reality. Around 15% of the population are Learners. You have the critical thinking skills to be a truly free individual, but you haven't exercised them enough yet. From time to time, you're still manipulated by the powers that be, although you frequently learn from those mistakes and refuse to be exploited again. You buy things because they are practical, not because they're cool.

The dinner guest

Old fart A man was walking down the street when he was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless man who asked him for a couple of dollars for dinner.

The man took out his wallet, extracted ten dollars and asked, "If I give you this money, will you buy some beer with it instead of dinner?"

"No, I had to stop drinking years ago," the homeless man replied.

"Will you use it to go fishing instead of buying food?" the man asked.

"No, I don't waste time fishing," the homeless man said. "I need to spend all my time trying to stay alive."

"Will you spend this on greens fees at a golf course instead of food?" the man asked.

"Are you NUTS!" replied the homeless man. "I haven't played golf in 20 years!"

"Will you spend the money on a woman in the red light district  instead of food?" the man asked.

"What disease would I get for ten lousy bucks?" exclaimed the homeless man.

"Well," said the man, "I'm not going to give you the money.  Instead, I'm going to take you home for a terrific dinner cooked by my wife."

The homeless man was astounded. "Won't your wife be furious with you for doing that? I know I'm dirty, and I probably smell pretty disgusting."

The man replied, "That's okay. It's important for her to see what a man looks like after he has given up beer, fishing, golf, and sex."

Our aim is to please - please aim yours too

(Text)  In Amsterdam, the tile under Schiphol’s urinals would pass inspection in an operating room.  But nobody notices.  What everybody does notice is that each urinal has a fly in it.

Urinal fly

Look harder, and the fly turns into the black outline of a fly, etched into the porcelain.  It improves the aim.  If a man sees a fly, he aims at it.  Fly-in-urinal research found that etchings reduce spillage by 80%.  It gives a guy something to think about.  This is the perfect example of process control.

Who says you can’t train a man to do better?

Thanks Mary

A Prius meets a Hummer at the gas pumps


Prius driver


Hummer driver





1 gallon


That’s really quite a beast you’ve got there.


Yeah, what of it? I like my vehicles big.


2 gallons


But isn’t it the height of arrogance to drive such a gas guzzler? Especially, these days.


Hey, it’s a free country, buddy. At least my vehicle’s made in America.


3 gallons


Yeah, I suppose it is, everything but the gasoline that goes in it.


Well, if you liberals would open up Alaska to drilling there would be plenty of  domestic oil.


4 gallons


Interesting, isn’t it, that when it comes to conservation of natural resources it’s the liberals who are conservative?


I’m not short-changing my lifestyle for some made up gas crisis.


5 gallons


I haven’t seen your rear bumper but I’m guessing there’s a W sticker back there.


What makes you so sure?


6 gallons


I’m guessing that not many Hummer drivers voted for Kerry.


Not if they had any sense. And what about you? What’s on your bumper? ‘Visualize Whirled Peas’?


7 gallons


That’s funny. Nah, just one sticker: 'Think. It’s patriotic.'


Are you saying that because I drive a Hummer I don’t think? I think plenty.


8 gallons


I’ll bet. Especially while you’re hanging around here at the gas station filling your tank every few days.


Look, I’m not an asshole, okay?


9 gallons


I never said you were.


But you think it.


10 gallons


There’s this game I like to play at parties. As I mingle and get to know people, I try to guess which ones would be Hummer drivers.


So the less you like people the more likely that they would drive a Hummer?


11 gallons


Pretty much.


You know, I could play the same game only in reverse.


12 gallons


Hey, I’d love to chat some more, but I’m finished here. 12 gallons. That’ll keep me going for a few weeks. Listen, take care. Good luck living with yourself.


Happy trails, granola boy. Try to stay out of the tread in my tires with that windup toy of yours.


13 gallons




What a prick.


14 gallons




I’m not the asshole; he’s the asshole.


15 gallons




I don’t know what this country’s coming to.


16 gallons




Damn, do I look hot standing against this Hummer, or what?


17 gallons




I wonder if we should have a family picture taken in front of the Hummer for our Christmas card this year.


18 gallons




Darla’s gonna love those breast implants I’m getting her for Christmas.



19 gallons




Look at these gas prices! I sure hope the President can do something about this. Maybe we do need to invade another Arab country.


20 gallons




Bush is a fine president, you know? Maybe even as good as Reagan. I think they ought to put both of their faces up on Mt. Rushmore.


21 gallons




I miss full serve gas stations. I could be sitting inside listening to Bill O'Reilly on the radio right now.


22 gallons




I wonder what kind of bonus I’ll get this year.


23 gallons




What we need in this country is another tax cut. That would set things right.


24 gallons




Stupid hybrids. How would I tow my speed boat in one of those goddamned tin cups?


25 gallons




Me an asshole. Imagine. How dare that guy judge me. People look up to me. That reminds me I need to clip my nose hairs.


26 gallons




Maybe I should take this baby off-road some time. Man, that would be a blast. Nah, all that mud. I just got her detailed.


27 gallons




What would Jesus drive? I’ll bet he’d drive a Hummer.


28 gallons




Born in the USA, I was born in the USA – I really love that song...


29 gallons




...too bad Springsteen is a communist traitor now.


30 gallons




Thirty gallons? That’s all? I’m going to be late for work again.


31 gallons




Look at all these foreigners around here. Good thing I renewed my NRA membership.


32 gallons




Nice weather, I should leave early and play golf at the club.


33 gallons




Hey, nobody’s called me on my cell phone in like ten minutes. What’s up with that?


34 gallons




I wonder how the market is doing.


35 gallons




Lordy, look at that babe. She’s checking me out. Chicks dig my Hummer. And guys are jealous. That’s the flat-out truth.


36 gallons




I can’t get that Prius guy out of my head. Why am I letting him bother me?


37 gallons




He’s nobody. Probably one of them crazy scientists who believe in climate change. He should listen to Rush Limbaugh. Then he’d know the truth.


38 gallons




Okay, I’ve got to let go. Remember, liberal Democrats are people, too. Just misguided.


39 gallons




See, I am not an asshole. I’m a compassionate conservative blessed with uncommon good sense and lots of money. 


40 gallons




Full. Finally. Now I can be on my way. It’s gonna be a great day. Sure is good to be me.
