Scary News

Aren't you glad I'm back to posting? How else would you stay informed?

New Headline--'Ants living in the Australian desert are ready for 'insect Armageddon'

Happily, Australian ants are not planning to take over the world (at least, we don't know that's what they're planning). They're just very flexible in responding to swings in temperature, rainfall, land use, etc. 

So, yay. When Armageddon does arrive, the ants will go marching two by two....

Something Else to Worry About


"A shortage of bees makes it necessary to haul bees to agricultural areas for pollination purposes, so it had to happen sooner or later. A truck carrying bees through Coeur d'Alene, Idaho overturned on I-90 in June andspilled up to a million bees. Traffic was backed up for a couple of hours, and drivers were warned to keep their windows rolled up.

To make matters worse, Coeur d'Alene was hosting an Iron Man Triathlon event at the same time. That couldn’t have been pleasant."

I knew it!

I knew it!


I found this on the internet, so it must be true!

The Real Reason You’re Craving Junk Food? You’re Thinking Too Hard!

If you’re like many office workers, your desk job gives you a double fat increasing whammy: Not only are you sitting, inactive, at a desk for most of the day, but this type of mental, knowledge-based work actually makes it more difficult to control appetite and may make us eat more calories and fat. Since the work requires glucose for maximum brainpower—well, we naturally reach for more fuel.

Perspective

Try this at home: Get three large bowls. Fill one with hot water, one with room-temp water, and one with ice water. Put one hand in the hot water and one in the ice water. Keep them there for about 15 seconds. Then put both together in the room-temp bowl. What do you feel?

It all depends on your perspective. I don't want to talk politics, but it has been fascinating and an eye-opening journey. It's all about perspective. Get three "normal," reasonably sane and intelligent people and show them the same video--and one person sees an egomaniac bully, one sees nothing to fuss about, and the third sees a patriot in action.

Political but Funny

At the very least the American political machine offers endless opportunities for hilarity.

"After President Trump complained yet again of being treated unfairly, particularly by the press, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., jabbed him in an interview Thursday.“Well, first of all, I’ve been worse treated than President Trump has, let’s make sure that we know about that,”McCain said lightlyduring an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

The senator was referring to his five-year-plus ordeal as a prisoner of war.

Crossing My Eyes


Politics as unUsual

I found this in the comment section of a political article. I made it multiple choice so that you could choose your own hero/villain according to your politics. I think it makes if funnier but sadder, too.

Liberals/conservatives are not even close to being the haters of everybody that the immoral left/right are as haters.  But we will get better at hating the haters and we will take back America from the infidels and immoral haters on the left/right who are determined to destroy the constitution and America.

Adults Only?

I was cruising around Vista Print, which hosts my website and provides my images. I love the picture on my website...and then I found it in the "Adult Services" section of Vista.

I wasn't sure what to think. And then I decided to think that yes, I provide "Adult Services" with my stories. And I'm going to stop thinking about it...

Strange News

An Arizona father woke up to find a stranger in his apartment holding his two-year-old daughter. The little girl was fine. The stranger, who had been partying in a nearby apartment, told the police that he "found a midget in a dark room" and was playing with her.

I wish I could make this stuff up.

"Some Female Fish Evolve Bigger Brains as Males Evolve Larger Genitals"

The truth really is stranger than fiction, but this explains a LOT about the world we live in.

More from the story:   STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Nov. 23 (UPI) -- New research suggests sexual conflict among fish can encourage both bigger brains and larger genitals. In lab tests involving eastern mosquitofish, scientists found males with larger genitals triggered the development of bigger female brains. Previous fish studies have shown the antagonistic relationship among predators and their prey inspires the evolution of larger brains.
