Tonight's ONT Is Out Of Order

Out of order.png

I had the ONT all written on my iPad. When I went to upload it and make sure the formatting was correct for publication, I stepped right on my iPad.

This was a less effective method of posting than I would have preferred. The iPad still works, but the screen is shattered, and not in a "has-a-few-cracks-but-is-still-functional" way, but a "can't-see-or-do-crap-with-it" way.

There's a good guy in town who can replace the screen, but that doesn't do jack for tonight's content, so I'll go with what I've got at 10, and then add updates as I write them.



Yesterday was America's birthday, but let's not forget that July 1 was Canada Day, so happy belated to our cousins north of the border. However, in Newfoundland, Canada Day is treated as a day of mourning as much as it is of celebration. Do you know why?

July 1, Memorial Day

When I visited Newfoundland, the ferry to the island was named Blue Puttees , which was the name of the regiment that was wiped out at Beaumont Hamel. The regimental motto is "Better than the Best", and indeed, they quite literally gave their all at the Battle of the Somme.

9:15 a.m., July 1, 1916: 758 soldiers and 23 officers begin their advance
9:45 a.m.: 85 per cent of the force is dead, dying or wounded
July 2, 1916: 68 men report for roll call.

The article traces how this disaster may have ultimately cost Newfoundland its independence.

Coincidence? I Think Not!


Just Deserts

A video went viral this week. In it, a young woman took a tub of ice cream out of the freezer at the supermarket, proceeded to lick it, and then put it back in the freezer. Everyone was grossed out by this juvenile bid for attention, but she got it-11 million views. Now it seems that she may get her just deserts:

Woman Who Licked Tub of Ice Cream Faces 20 Years in Jail

You can get the whole story, and watch the video if you want, at the link.

Related: Speaking of viral videos, here's another one that went viral this week that's a lot less gross. Proof that cows will do anything for sax.

Could cities of the future use the heat from their subways to heat buildings? It's possible.

Engineering heat out of metro tunnels

Kinda neat.

Road Trip!

Ever been on a long road trip? Yeah, me either, but if you do go, here are some games to play to pass the time

That ought to be enough content for one night. Tonight's ONT brought to you by snails:
