Slow News Day ONT

So, did anything interesting happen today? Anything at all? Seems like it was probably a quiet day, no?




60+ Weirdest WTF Stock Photos

There are some doozys, like the picture above, and this one, which I think I'm going to try to turn into the next “distracted boyfriend” meme. Whatta y'all think?


He Chose....Poorly

Armed suspect robs convenience store, gets shot by every customer inside

From Brazil (with video). Everyone in the store was either a plainclothes or off-duty cop.

Pappy Van Winkle

If Val-U-Rite is at one end of the alcohol spectrum, than Pappy Van Winkle is at or close to the other end. Here's how to make a pretty fair substitute. Poor Man's Pappy. I have to say, I was excited when I saw the name of the website, I thought someone had archived my early weekend OpenBlogging threads.

All I'm Going To Have About Today's SCOTUS Shitshow

Why People of Good Conscience Should Make Sure the Kavanaugh Situation Never Happens Again

Y'know, I was gratified to see Republicans on the committee hitting back at the Donks, and hitting back hard. Hopefully the caucus will hold together, without anybody Flaking out, and confirm, but just how much change is upon us? A Mutiny Amid the Republican Party?

That's right. Marines came boiling out of their barracks and raced to help.

Barracks Marines immediately responded to assist local fire departments. Marines rushed into the building to rescue those who needed assistance and evacuated residents to the Marine Barracks Washington Annex where they were checked and treated for any injuries and sheltered until their loved ones arrived.


“But for not those really fast efforts, I’m not sure if everybody would have survived,” Councilman Charles Allen told WTOP. “We are incredibly grateful for the Marines and also for several of our neighbors who went in and started banging on doors.”

Thanks to the Marines there were no fatalities. Full story

Addendum: Tragically, they missed one man, and nobody found him for five days. Miraculously, the man was said to be in good shape and good spirits.
