Cool game

I’ll be the first to admit I’m not a big gamer but I found a link to this game: Samorost.  You have to figure out how to get from one level to the next by clicking on clickable things on each screen.   I stayed with this game longer than I normally would.  The graphics and sound are outstanding.   It doesn’t take too long to play it.  (I finished the game, which is unusual). 
There is also a sequel to this puzzle/game…. Samarost 2

Missouri Lawmaker Seeks to Ban Cold Beer Sales

COLDBEERJEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) -- A state senator wants to force Missouri stores to sell warm beer. Under a bill by Sen. Bill Alter, grocery and convenience stores would risk losing their liquor licenses if they sold beer colder than 60 degrees. The intent is to cut down on drunken driving by making it less tempting to pop open a beer after leaving the store.

"The only reason why beer would need to be cold is so that it can be consumed right away," Alter, who has been a police offer for more than 20 years, said Thursday.

He said the idea came from a fifth-grade student in Jefferson County who was participating in a program to teach elementary students about state government. He sought their suggestions for new laws and chose the cold beer ban from a list of the top three ideas.

"I thought it had the best chance at getting legislative attention," said Alter, R-High Ridge. "Plus, I think it's a good idea whether or not other people do."

Motorized picnic table

Picnic table

Table for eight please - and make it snappy

 An invention dreamed up over a couple of beers - and built over a few more - has been turning the heads of beachgoers and attracting police attention this summer.

The motorised picnic table is the creation of friends Ross Steiner and Brendon Macdonald.

The table seats eight people and is powered by a 400cc Honda motorcycle motor which Mr Macdonald said could easily get the table clipping along at 100km/h.

Someone lost their head

HeadHuman Head Found Floating Off Florida Island

POSTED:  9:20 am EST January 5, 2006

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- A human head was discovered off Jupiter Island by two teenagers who were fishing, authorities said.

Michael Puscani and Rocke Greco, both 17, spotted the head about 4 p.m. Wednesday.

"We didn't know if it was real or not, so we came around again and we were like, 'That's a human head,'" Puscani said. "I was just in shock, and it's a story that's kind of hard for people to believe."

Mooning Deemed 'Disgusting' but No Crime in Maryland

From the Washington Post:

ButtAcquitting a Germantown man who exposed his buttocks during an argument with a neighbor, a Montgomery County Circuit Court judge ruled yesterday that mooning, while distasteful, is not illegal in Maryland.

"If exposure of half of the buttock constituted indecent exposure, any woman wearing a thong at the beach at Ocean City would be guilty," Judge John W. Debelius III said after the bench trial, reversing the ruling of a District Court judge.

Debelius made clear his disdain for the defendant, calling the alleged act "disgusting" and "demeaning." The outcome could have been different, he suggested, if the man had been on trial for "being a jerk."

How do you sneeze?

Sneeze typeYour Style of Sneezing Can Tell a Lot about You

Cold and flu season is here, you're curled up on the couch watching daytime TV with a box of Kleenex by your side . . . pause a moment to reflect on the sneeze. Sure it's a nuisance right up there on the "gross meter" of bodily functions, but it's also an amazing part of being a human. Anyone pondering the sneeze will realize there are many different types -perhaps you're a machine gun multi-sneezer, your Uncle Fred sounds like a trumpet and your big sister barely makes a coquettish squeak.  … It's likely you have someone in your family to blame for your sneeze style.

Here are just a few types:

  • Internal Sneeze -- Nothing really comes out except an odd "ump" noise. It's a wonder their eardrums don't explode.
  • The Shout-it-Out Sneeze -This manly sneeze is so loud it can be heard in the next state.
  • The How High Can You Count? Sneeze -- The sneezer that keeps sneezing one right after the other until he begins to look like Count von Count from "Sesame Street."
  • Spray Gun -- This sneezer makes you wish you were carrying an umbrella and wearing a raincoat.

Banking bet

CLIPART_Bank_3An elderly woman walked into the Bank of Canada one morning with a purse full of money. She wanted to open a savings account and insisted on talking to the president of the Bank because, she said, she had a lot of money.
After many lengthy discussions (after all, the client is always right) an employee took the elderly woman to the president's  office.
The president of the Bank asked her how much she wanted to deposit. She placed her purse on his desk and replied, "$165,000". The president was curious and asked her how she had been able to save so much money. The elderly woman replied that she made bets.
The president was surprised and asked, "What kind of bets?"
The elderly woman replied, "Well, I bet you $25,000 that your testicles are square."
The president started to laugh and told the woman that it was impossible to win a bet like that.
The woman never batted an eye. She just looked at the president and said, "Would you like to take my bet?"
"Certainly", replied the president. "I bet you $25,000 that my testicles are not square."
Old lady"Done", the elderly woman answered. "But given the amount of money involved, if you don't mind I would like to come back at 10 o'clock tomorrow morning with my lawyer as a witness."
"No problem", said the president of the Bank confidently.
That night, the president became very nervous about the bet and spent a long time in front of the mirror examining his    testicles, turning them this way and that, checking them over again and again until he was positive that no one could consider his testicles as square and reassuring himself that there was no way he could lose the bet.
The next morning at exactly 10 o'clock the elderly woman arrived at the president's office with her lawyer and acknowledged the $25,000 bet made the day before that the president's testicles were square.
The president confirmed that the bet was the same as the one made the day before. Then the elderly woman asked him to drop his pants etc. so that she and her lawyer could see clearly.
The president was happy to oblige.
The elderly woman came closer so she could see better and asked the president if she could touch them. "Of course", said the president. "Given the amount of money involved, you should be 100% sure."
The elderly woman did so with a little smile. Suddenly the president noticed that the lawyer was banging his head against the wall. He asked the elderly woman why he was doing that and she replied, "Oh, it's probably because I bet him $100,000 that around 10 o'clock in the morning I would be holding the balls of the President of the Bank of Canada!"

A funeral

Funeral A woman was leaving a convenience store with her morning coffee when she noticed a most unusual funeral procession approaching the nearby cemetery.
A long black hearse was followed by a second long black hearse about 50 feet behind the first one. Behind the second hearse was a solitary  woman walking a pit bull on a leash. Behind her, a short distance back, were about  200 women walking single file.  

The woman was so curious that she respectfully  approached the woman walking the dog and said, "I am so sorry for your loss, and I know now  is a bad time to disturb you, but I have never seen a funeral like this.   Whose funeral is it?" 

"My husband's." "What happened to him?"  The woman replied, "My dog attacked and killed him."

She inquired further,  "Well, who is in the second hearse?"      The woman answered, "My mother-in-law. She was trying to help my husband when the dog turned on her."   

A poignant and thoughtful moment of silence passed between the two women.    "Can I borrow the dog?"   "Get in line."

 A Woman's Prayer:
     Dear Lord,
    I pray for:
    Wisdom, To understand a man.
    Love, To forgive him and;
    Patience, For his moods.
   Because, Lord, if I pray for Strength
   I'll just beat him to death.

Thanks Phyllis

Two headed snake for sale

I heard about this on the local radio this morning.


Story.snake.apThe World Aquarium in St. Louis, Missouri, has been home to We, a one-of-a-kind two-headed albino rat snake, since 1999. President Leonard Sonnenschein has decided to sell the reptile, and bidding on e-Bay will start at $150,000 .

"It's an amazing snake," Sonnenschein said Monday. "When people see it they are awestruck."

The 61/2-year-old snake came to the aquarium's attention when its previous owner distributed a circular offering it for sale days after its birth. The aquarium paid $15,000 , knowing that most two-headed snakes don't live more than a few months.

But We has survived and thrived. An inch (2.5 centimeters) thick and 4 feet long, she is a healthy size for a rat snake. While her body is white, the heads have a reddish appearance.

Flying car

The folks at Kansas University are developing an aircar that you drive on the streets and right out ontoo a runway.  After a brief conversion, you then take off and fly like an airplane.

AircarHow would you like to hop in your four-person AirCar, drive to the airport, take off, land and drive to Grandma’s in the same vehicle?

That’s what some forward-thinking industrial design students at the University of Kansas had in mind when they designed a Jetsons/James Bond-like flying car.

Plans for the car were unveiled Thursday at the university’s Center for Design in Lawrence.

The sleek, metallic blue vehicle would have retractable wings, a chassis on hydraulics or air lifts, and wheels that unfold when the aircraft becomes a land cruiser.

The first model should be available in a year or two.  Initial cost would be around $200,000, but should come down in price after a while.

Will there be a Google computer?

Google_logoSpeculation is mounting that Page will use a keynote speech at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on Friday to unveil details of a low-cost computer or internet-enabled device that will run on a new operating system developed by Google.

Because the device - similar in concept to the Mac Mini unveiled last year by Apple's Steve Jobs - doesn't use Microsoft's Windows, it could cost as little as $200.

Despite its low price it would enable users to collect and store internet-delivered content such as films, music and photos then show it on TV.
