Quotes of The Day

Quote I

Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive. Elbert Hubbard

Quote II

If you could kick the person in the pants responsible for most of your trouble, you wouldn't sit for a month. Theodore Roosevelt

Quote III

Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views. William F. Buckley, Jr.


Tuesday night we covered the fact that drinking is a No-No in outer space. If NASA wants to explore and/or inhabit 7 new planets they claim could support life. Lighten up on the Valu-Rite restrictions. Amirite?

Scientists may have come just one step closer to discovering another life-supporting planet in our universe.

NASA announced at a press conference Wednesday afternoon that the Spitzer Space Telescope has spotted the "first known system of seven Earth-sized planets around a single star. Three of these planets are firmly located in the habitable zone, the area around the parent star where a rocky planet is most likely to have liquid water."

Ham Radio operator and the Boston Marathon 2013. h/t Miria F via Twitter.

There will be a new awareness about being able to communicate when cell phones don’t work. I was lucky enough to be one who could communicate clearly, even with someone around the world, when tens of thousands of people couldn’t.

I was lucky enough to be in a position to help many who needed help. That’s why all of us ham radio operators volunteered to be in Boston along with the thousands of other Boston Marathon volunteers.

Believe me, we’ll be back.


Where is the Fake News Media now? Milo is crucified, George Takei not so much. h/t Phoenixgirl.

The Left and its hypocrisy.

Also check out The Dystopic who discusses three or four Alinsky tactics in his piece entitled The Media Strikes Back:
Did Milo defend pedophiles? No. Evidence exists that he did the exact opposite. He has exposed multiple pedophiles in the past, including the aforementioned Nyberg. Salon, one of the publications attacking Milo for this supposed behavior, has published many articles defending pedophilia, calling it a sexual orientation (something Milo has absolutely never done). People like Meryl Streep have given standing ovations to convicted pedophiles, like Roman Polanski. Do you really think any of this is based on principle? That the media has suddenly developed a conscience when it comes to molesting children?

They don’t care. They want Milo gone. And by extension, they want Trump gone.


Built like a brick shit house. Built like a shit shit house.

1973 saw the debut of Envirite (aka Glass-Dung, Manure Glass, or Pasture Glass), a promised-to-be revolutionary building material made out of glass and cow manure.

It actually seems like it was a pretty good idea. The concept was that you could take old glass bottles, combine them with cow manure, heat both together in a furnace, and the manure would act as a foaming agent fusing the glass together into a versatile building material. So you'd be repurposing two waste products (old glass and manure) into something useful.


Manly Man who doesn't know where he is at, stops and asks for directions.

This is not a hilarious story but was shown by the video below that spread through the social media.

According to the Kazakhstan Ministry of Defense the helicopter (carrying four rocket pods) was involved in a “planned visual orienteering exercise,” in which trainee pilots were told to determine their location “including by means of human survey.” According to the statement, cited by the local media, the exercise was a “success.”

Dog.Man's Woman's best friend. Woman filmed herself with dog having sex.

Amy Nicole Graves, 43, was arrested yesterday afternoon on a charge of having unnatural intercourse with a dog.

Unnatural intercourse with a dog? You mean there is a natural way?


Norway is picking the winners and losers of automobile sales.

Norway has been incentivizing the use of zero emission vehicles since the 1990s. These include exempting EVs from value added taxes (VAT), thus making conventional automobiles significantly more expensive in the country, low annual road tax, and no purchase and import taxes. EVs also park for free in city centers, get access to bus lanes, and don’t have to pay road tolls.


How do you create a Special Snowflake? Well, the first thing you do is to keep them inside school.

A mom in New York tells me she’s in a fight with her kid’s preschool. You might think she’s unhappy with the zero-tolerance policy for Kombucha? Too much enrichment? Not enough? In fact, it’s none of the above. Her fight is over the children playing outside. The mother wants her kid to be outside more often, while the preschool is of the opposite opinion. The director’s latest excuse is that it is “illegal” for the kids to be outside when the temperature is below 32 degrees.

Recess is a healthy part of childhood.


Dude makes John Wick like action film at home. Something tells me that this guy handled temps under 32 as a child growing up.
