Friends of the Northern Yellowstone Elk Herd

These guys are to the right of James Watt:

"Friends petitions the court to recognize that wolves are being used as a bio-weapon targeting the civil rights, economy, customs, culture, and heritage of the citizens of Montana, Idaho and Wyoming. Friends petitions the courts to find that all agencies and employees of those agencies, who have breached the public trust, as evidenced by the excessive wolf densities and in defiance of Congress and the Delphi 15. Friends petitions the court to order the surrender of all management authority over wolves to the US Department of Agriculture and seek funding for lethal wolf controls from the Granger-Thy Act and order the US Department of Agriculture to work with the Montana Department of Livestock."

My Friday night is going to be better than yours!

Actually, Trevon's and Dan's are going to be equally good.

Driving to work

I saw beaucoup cars in the ditch and had to wait for 45 minutes on Boulder Hill and they pulled a motor home out of roadway. The most inpressive wass the guy pulling a 40 foot camper trailer who somehow managed to end up on the wrong side of the Interstate.

Fun with science

You have to watch the video to believe it, but this restaurant in Japan has a goldfish tank…in the deep fryer. Because oil floats on water, despite the massive heat (163 degrees Celsius) the goldfish simply stay away from the surface and all is well. They eat the crumbs of croquettes and other fried foods that fall to the bottom, and can live in there for 5-10 years as they happily clean away, ignorant to the fact that certain death awaits any potential escapees.

I'm glad this isn't my dog.

Firstly, the Barbie doll issue. I know the kid is forgetful and sometimes leaves her bedroom door unlocked. It truly sucks to be a hardass, but I'd appreciate if you didn't swallow the body parts. If you could just spit 'em out it would avoid the whole morning-after trauma thing. By the next day chances are I've forgotten it ever happened and I'm simply not equipped to encounter pink hands and feet sticking out of your shit when I stoop to do my civic duty.

I have no idea what the product is, but it's a damn funny commercial

Canal Surfing in Germany

The Sport of King George

"Has there ever been an American administration which wrapped itself so tightly in the flag? Have we ever had a government which hid its policies so carefully behind their supposed interest in the welfare of the troops? If you didn’t know any better (which was precisely the idea) you’d have thought these people were tough American war veterans themselves, tempered in the crucible of battle, and now just empathetically looking out for the welfare of today’s kids in situations similar to those in which they had once found themselves."

A fun story from "This American Life."

"This American Life" is also a radio program/podcast you can find for free on the Web or in iTunes.

The Naica Mine of Chihuahua, Mexico, is a working mine that is known for its extraordinary crystals. Naica is a lead, zinc and silver mine in which large voids have been found, containing crystals of selenite (gypsum) as large as 4 feet in diameter and 50 feet long. The chamber holding these crystals is known as the Crystal Cave of Giants, and is approximately 1000 feet down in the limestone host rock of the mine

You think you had a bad day at work?
