The Morning Rant: J.V. Edition


Yo Hadrian! It's me...Rocky!

Sorry, I deserve to have poo thrown at me for that.

No rant today....this is just an interesting tidbit. Ancient Roman boxing gloves discovered near Hadrian's Wall

Unlike modern boxing gloves, the artifacts have the appearance of a protective guard, according to The Vindolanda Trust. “The larger of the two gloves is cut from a single piece of leather and was folded into a pouch configuration, the extending leather at each side were slotted into one another forming a complete oval shape creating an inner hole into which a hand could still easily be inserted,” it explained, in a statement. “The glove was packed with natural material acting as a shock absorber.”

Sounds like the Romans liked to duke it out!


Blue whale carcass carved into, stomped on by tourists taking selfies on top of the creature

Yeah? So? It's dead. It's not some magical talisman that will guide us to a better place. There is nothing noble about the carcass of an animal.


"The horrific behavior displayed by these individuals is a sign of the disregard and disrespect of the truly spiritual creatures that ply our oceans," Liz Lewis, director of field operations for Springcreek Conservation, an educational organization that financially supports the Museum of Natural History of Rio Seco in Chile, told Fox News.

You have got to be shitting me! It is a big blob of meat and fat and bone that is rapidly going to start stinking up the entire area. What is more noble about a blue whale carcass than the pancaked bodies of squirrels on our roads, or the occasional possum that gets crunched, or for that matter the cockroaches and mice in the traps of most restaurants? Are we to worship them as representatives of a higher spiritual plane?


WARNING! Don't puke on your keyboard!


Gun guy gets rid of his AR-15 after Florida Shooting. Except....Mr. Noir noticed a bit of a problem. I would put nothing past these leftist ghouls, so I am ging to assume that it's all a fake.
