When all else fails, we can whip the horse's eyes.

 Sorry, that's just a little too deep even for me, but we may need to keep it in mind if shit keeps going the way it's going... 


At the very end of the long meandering song ‘Soft Parade’ on the fourth studio album released on July 18, 1969 by The Doors, Jim Morrison says “When all else fails, we can whip the horse’s eyes And make them sleep, and cry.” 
The phrase references the 1866 Russian author Fyodor Dostoevsky’s novel Crime & Punishment.  The term “whipping the horses eyes” means that you have tried every option without success, so why not do the only thing that is left.

This is a fairly iconic picture that evokes 'Super-storm' Sandy. They called it a superstorm instead of a hurricane in deference to the insurance companies - you figure out why. They'll say it's because it happened after the so-called hurricane season had ended. That's bulllshit and we all knew it.
 Anyway, This is (was) the Star Jet roller coaster in which it was destroyed and fell into the ocean at the Casino Pier in New Jersey by the notorious storm Sandy in 2012, as well as half of the pier which was completely destroyed.

30 years of cell phones


I had every one of these but one. The one on the left is the very first one I had - in my car. I remember if you were driving and talking and you started to lose your signal, you'd have to pull over and stop because cell towers weren't that ubiquitous then as they are now.

How many Earths can fit in the Sun? The answer is that it would take 1.3 million Earths to fill up the Sun. That’s a lot of Earths. The Sun makes up 99.86% of the mass of the Solar System. And it’s the giant planets like Jupiter and Saturn which make the most of that remaining .14% of the Solar System. 

   If you’d like to do the calculation yourself, here are your numbers. The volume of the Sun is 1.412 x 1018 km3. And the volume of the Earth is 1.083 x 1012 km3. So if you divide the volume of the Sun by the volume of the Earth, you get 1,300,000.

This is a really good Bluetooth speaker and 
it's still on sale for under $ 26 bucks. 

I know for a fact how good it is - I have the same one and I use it at work. 
The sound - and the volume - you get from this is amazing.

Could it be because scumbag websites like this exist for the sole purpose of lying, bending the facts and generally just pissing people off? Is that why?

On a scale of stupid to 10, this kinda stuff is a 12 in my book. Here's two idiots named Ivan Unger and Gladys Roy playing 'tennis' on top of a biplane in 1925. That is some seriously fuckin' stupid crazy shit to do just to make a picture, a  buck or god knows what...

Democrats will unveil on Thursday a plan to change the composition of the Supreme Court, it was reported on Wednesday, and increase the number of justices from nine to 13. The proposal, reported by The Intercept, is likely to spark strong protest from Republicans, who warned during the election that Joe Biden would try and change the court's composition. The Supreme Court is currently conservative leaning, with six conservative judges seated. Donald Trump appointed three: Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett. 
The new plan is being promoted in the House by the Judiciary Committee Chairman, Jerry Nadler, Subcommittee chair Hank Johnson, and freshman Rep. Mondaire Jones. In the Senate, the bill is being championed by Ed Markey of Massachusetts.  Biden himself refused to say before the election what his position was. In 1995 described efforts to expand the Supreme Court as 'boneheaded'. But, under pressure from progressives within his party, he said last week that he was forming a special commission to investigate the issue. 
The formation of a 36-member commission was announced by the White House on April 9. Biden's move was called a 'power grab', and a 'move by the radical left when they can't get what they want'. The commission will still go ahead despite this attempt to act before it has even begun.

Protesters in Minnesota chased away a CNN crew while they were attempting to cover the fourth night of demonstrations over the police-killing of Daunte Wright.
 
One member of the crew got pelted in the head with a water bottle, falling to the ground, outside the Brooklyn Center police station on Thursday night, according to the Washington Examiner, who had a reporter on the ground.

    1. Didn't pop up in the google search when I did it, he's a real cutie, huh?

    2. I believe Jorgenson was the first ever person who had a sex change operation in the early 50's. George decided to become Christine. Rumors in my neighborhood when I was a kid were that a local bar owner who always had ladies plying their trade there mistakenly allowed himself to get oral sex from one a cross dresser who snuck his/her way in and that person I believe wound up as fertilizer in some Indiana farm field
