Living in the 'now' is no good for anyone...

 The people who talk about 'climate change' and dwell on 'insignifica' don't have any grasp of time or history... 
 
Everything must be seen in perspective. Everything that's happening nowadays is relative to every other thing that's ever happened before, but people lose their ability to see that, and that's how we end up with jerkoff laws like this new one the Dems just jammed through.
 
Greenland was named that for a reason. So was Iceland. 
How's that working out for them now?

Ya know how I say some people have too much money 
and way too much free time? Case in point...

This picture was in a local ad here in the Villages newspaper:  

"The Flying Golf Cart Stunt Pilot Team is looking for golf cart drivers. Yes they are a real group, and the golf carts don't need to look like planes, but most of them do somehow. 
The Stunt Pilots perform choreographed, visually exciting, street performances throughout the Villages, in parades both in and outside of the Villages as well as competitions (the Team has won two first place trophies).
Gas and electric carts, female and male drivers are all welcomed. There is a weekly practice session on Tuesday mornings. Practice/performance season runs from September through early December and Mid-January through May." 
Summers must be too warm for them to fly...

It's fascinating to find out that the Hindenburg was actually a scheduled trans-Atlantic carrier. Here is the Hindenburg moored at the U.S. Navy hangar in Lakehurst, New Jersey in the fall of 1935.
 


The Hindenburg disaster that we're all familiar with ("Oh, the humanitites...") happened here at Lakehurst on May 6, 1937, and it brought an end to the age of the rigid airship. The explosion and crash killed 35 persons on the airship itself, and one member of the ground crew, but miraculously - some would say incredibly - 62 of the 97 passengers and crew survived.

New "voluntary quits" data shows New York Police Department officers are leaving the force in a "stampede," according to NYPD Police Benevolent Association President Patrick Lynch.
It is a flashing alarm on how bad it is to be a New York City police officer amid rising crime after years of social unrest and calls to defund the police. There have been 2,465 NYPD officers leaving this year to date, a 42% increase from the 1,731 that left by August last year, pension fund data shows.
More alarmingly, those leaving before reaching full pension at 20 years is up 71% (1,098) from this time last year (just 641).
Lynch took exception with the NYPD Chief of Department Kenneth Corey claiming the exodus is due to a large graduating class from the police academy. "We have had retirement waves caused by large academy classes before — they were nothing like this," Lynch said. "This exodus is the result of cops in the prime of their careers deciding they have had enough. "The NYPD should stop trying to explain this staffing crisis away, admit there's a problem and help us fix it."

That's an interesting perspective, the bird's eye view of somewhere you're very familiar with, isn't it. Have you ever had the chance to fly over your old - or new for that matter - neighborhood? It's cool to see how everything you know on ground level ties together in one bigger picture. For perspectives sake, that body of water in the foreground is the Passaic River...

Police are looking for four men who stole more than $2 million worth of jewelry from a Bronx store on Friday afternoon in a super speedy smash and go. Video shared by NYPD Crime Stoppers shows one man getting buzzed into Rocco's Jewelry by an employee at about 2:40 p.m., then propping the door open to let three other men dressed in black into the store.
"Once inside the store, the three individuals used a hammer to smash open the display cases and removed a large amount of high-end diamond jewelry," said police in a news release. "The jewelry was placed into bags being carried by the individuals, who fled the location on foot heading southbound on Webster Avenue." Police said the jewelry taken from Rocco's is valued at around $2.15 million. No injuries were reported from the robbery. The robbery, which took place in broad daylight, took about 30 seconds from start to finish.
The NYPD is asking anyone with information on the four men to come forward, offering a $3,500 reward for any information on the whodidit...

This pic is here for the sole reason that I like it. First time I saw it, I immediately thought to myself - 'I could live in the room on the other side of that window. And yeah - I was sober at the time so shut up...

A roll of quarters and all afternoon to kill. Wuddya think?
