Saturday Night ONT [Ben]

Remember the Black Bear Who Fell Out of A Tree?

Well, I've got some bad news for you. He's dead.


At least he died doing what he loved, which was getting hit by a car.


The Craziest Kentucky Derby Hats







Man Cards


I've accomplished three on that list. How about you?

About Last Night's Assignment

Okay, I asked the AoSHQ commenters to e-mail me their blogs so I can post them here for other morons to enjoy.

First, let's start with the original three "Splitter" blogs started by some of the original HQ commenters.

The Hostages.

Innocent Bystanders.

Double Plus Undead.

Co-Blogger Blog
DrewM's blog called Drew Musings
Drew describes it thusly,"Stuff that's too long for Twitter and doesn't really fit at Ace of Spades."


Reader Submissions
Journolist's blog called Clarion Advisory. It's about all things politics.

XBradTC's blog called Bring the Heat, Bring the Stupid.
He added this, "And if you search for "Load HEAT" you'll find a couple hundred collections of hot wimmens."

Speedster1's blog called InsureBlog. The content is mainly about health insurance, life insurance and loose women...wait...no.. just insurance. This is one of things I love about the commenters here. A lot of you have special knowledge you bring to the conversation on a wide range of issues and subjects.

Jones in CO's blog called The Motorcycle Project. It's about all things motorcycle and awesome mustaches if Jones in CO's picture in the sidebar is any indication.

AltonJackson's blog called Supply Side Politics 2.0. It's a politics themed blog.

Trapeze wanted me to link to this forum he participates in called It's About Liberty. There are forum threads on topics such as the 2nd Amendment, Media Bias, Economy, World Affairs, Immigration, Science, Sports and more! It seems to cover any issue that might interest you.

BrickMuppet's blog called BrickMuppet Blog. As BrickMuppet describes it, "
It's mostly fluff but I do politics occasionally."

Otis Criblecoblis's blog called The Farm House Journal Blog. The subject appears to pertain to the restoration of an old farm house. It looks like he's doing a good job thus far.

Paul Kroenke's blog called Organized Exploitation. It looks like everything from politics to Futurama.

Prof Mondo's blog called Prof Mondo. A blog of Professor Mondo's musings on politics, life, and insights.

Moviegique's blog called Bitmaelstrom. It's a movie and tv related blog.

Phil's Blog called Mexican-Strawberries. Don't let the name fool you, it's has nothing to do with strawberries or Mexico.

And then there were a bunch of links to blogs that promised to make me "larger", but I'm keeping those links to myself.


Canada Quits the Penny

Canada minted its final penny today as Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said the coin was too expensive to produce and no longer needed for business.

“The real issue was that people weren’t using them, they were putting them in jars at home, and we were doing the same thing at my house,” Flaherty said. He spoke today at the Royal Canadian Mint in Winnipeg, Manitoba, before pushing a button that stamped the last one-cent coin.

The longest-serving finance minister in the Group of Seven nations promised in his March 29 budget to save C$11 million annually by eliminating the coin that he says costs 1.6 cents to mint. The price of copper, which is used in the penny’s production, has surged more than 330 percent since 2000.

Hopefully America follows suit.

Ace's Review of the Movie Goon
I rented the movie after reading Ace's review. The cinematography, dialogue, music selection, and attention to detail impressed me. Anyone who has played competitive hockey will probably appreciate it even more. The locker room scenes brought back pleasant(if not disgusting) memories.


This song is in the movie and I can't get it out of my head. Now you have to deal with it too.


UN: US Should Return Stolen Land to Indian Tribes

A United Nations investigator probing discrimination against Native Americans has called on the US government to return some of the land stolen from Indian tribes as a step toward combatting continuing and systemic racial discrimination.

James Anaya, the UN special rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples, said no member of the US Congress would meet him as he investigated the part played by the government in the considerable difficulties faced by Indian tribes.

Let's face it. The Pre-European way of life on the American continent ended hundreds of years ago and it's not coming back.


How's the Moon Doing Tonight? Super. (I see RDBrewer covered it below, as Ace says, this is a recontextualization)

The Moon will be 14% larger tonight.

AoSHQ Garden Talk

What a nice day today. I was able to get a lot of yard work done and finally start my garden.

Here's a picture of a Lemon Boy tomato I planted today. (Not to be confused with Lemon Party Boy)


I plant a decent amount of yellow tomatoes. They have a much lower acidity than red tomatoes.

Anyone else start their garden? What did you plant?


Obama's Campaign Kickoff
Not exactly the big draw that it once was.


Picture from @RyanGOP.

I tweet here.
