The Saturday Night Joke

So a man walks into a bar, and sits down. He starts a conversation with an old guy next to him. The old guy has obviously had a few. He says to the man:

"You see that dock out there? Built it myself, hand crafted each piece, and it's the best dock in town! But do they call me "McGregor the dock builder"? No! And you see that bridge over there? I built that, took me two months, through rain, sleet and scoarching weather, but do they call me "McGregor the bridge builder"? No! And you see that pier over there, I built that, best pier in the county! But do they call me "McGregor the pier builder"? No!"

The old guy looks around, and makes sure that nobody is listening, and leans to the man, and he says:

"but you fuck one sheep..." (H/T jim [in Kalifornia])

Man Forgets Wife At Rest Stop, Drives 100 Miles Before Realizing It

Traveling can be stressful. It can be easy to forget something and not notice it for some time - you might neglect to bring a toothbrush and only realize it when you go to the bathroom for some oral hygiene, or perhaps you left your phone charger at home. Well one man wound up driving 100 miles before figuring out he forgot something pretty important after a stopping at a rest stop - his wife.

It happened in Thailand last week when 55-year-old Boontom Chaimoon and his wife, 49-year-old Amnuay, decided to drive through the night to Amnuay's hometown for the holidays. At one point, Boontom needed to relieve himself, so he pulled over to do so. As he took care of his business, Amnuay decided she should use the bathroom as well and dashed off behind some trees to do so. When she finished and went back to the car, it was gone.


Who needs an EV when you can have an EV & ICE flying car?

Flying cars have been part of the public imagination for so long, it's almost hard to believe they could be anything other than flights of fancy. Yet, startup Aska's A5 $789,000 flying car is preparing for takeoff. In fact, you can pay a $5,000 deposit to get on the preorder list. (CNET is looking forward to a future flight demo here at CES 2023, where the Aska A5 debuted.)

How soon is soon? The FAA's OK could land "within a month," Aska cofounder and CEO, Guy Kaplinsky, said after the car's Thursday unveiling. Aska hopes to start its ride-sharing service in 2026.

Powered by electric batteries backstopped by a small gas engine, the four-seat prototype on display in Las Vegas is about the same size as a large SUV, but topped with large wings sporting propellers like a helicopter. It fits in a conventional parking space and needs an area about the size of a helipad for a vertical takeoff or landing. It can be charged at home or conventional EV stations and its gas engine, which can provide an additional 50 miles of range, is powered by premium gasoline.

Of course, it has to be................


Yes, it is an older story. But, still relevant in our world today. Wisconsin is blessed with Kwik Trip which is an outstanding convenience store. With gas to boot.

Eating crow. Really. HOW TO EAT CROW (LITERALLY) - Yeah, Sous Vide FTW.

Eating crow is one of those old sayings nobody really knows where it came from, and few people are interested in finding out. There was a time though, that people did really cook and eat crow, and believe it or not crow hunting is still regulated in many states, just like deer hunting and turkey hunting.
