A Fairy Tale

One day, long, long ago, there was this woman who surprisingly, did not whine, nag or bitch........

But this was a long time ago..... and it was just ONE day.

The End.

The Monkey Experiment, (or) “Why Do We Do That?”

Start with a cage containing five monkeys. Inside the cage, hang a banana on a string and place a set of stairs under it. Before long, a monkey will go to the stairs and start to climb towards the banana. As soon as he touches the stairs, all of the other monkeys are sprayed with cold water. After a while, another monkey makes an attempt with the same result, and all the other monkeys are sprayed with cold water. Pretty soon the monkeys will try to prevent it.

Now, put away the cold water. Remove one monkey from the cage and replace it with a new one. The new monkey sees the banana and wants to climb the stairs. To his surprise and horror, all the other monkeys attack him. After another attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the stairs he will be attacked.

Next, remove another of the original five monkeys and replace it with a new one. The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked. The previous newcomer takes part in the punishment with enthusiasm! Likewise, replace a third original monkey with a new one, then a fourth, then the fifth.

Every time the newest monkey takes to the stairs, he is attacked. Most of the monkeys that are beating him have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs or why they are participating in the beating of the newest monkey. After replacing all the original monkeys, none of the remaining monkeys have ever been sprayed with cold water. Nevertheless, no monkey ever again approaches the stairs to try for the banana.

Why not? Because as far as they know, that’s the way it’s always been done around there.

We are not like them. Wolves "kill", humans "lethally remove."

Three calves were confirmed killed by wolves on private land southwest of Drummond this week. USDA Wildlife Services lethally removed four wolves in response to the depredations and more removals have been authorized.

A very stupid and self-centered Californian

"While it has been difficult for me to accept that I have a brother in the military, I must allow him to pursue whatever path he is drawn toward, and he has admitted to me that he feels called to being there. However, for anyone else out there considering a career in the academy, let it be known: the U.S. Naval Academy is not an elite college; it is first and foremost a branch of the U.S. military."

I didn't catch it, but I get to eat it.

What a nice way to spend a Tuesday evening - trolling for trout (it chose the one line that wasn't mine) then going up and down the lake real fast in a sweet speedboat. We got off before the rain started too.

Blackwater kicked out of Iraq?

"It was inevitable," That's P.W. Singer's reaction to the Iraqi government " banning" military contractor Blackwater from the country. For years, no one has followed the rise of these privatized soldiers more closely than Singer, a Brookings Institution Senior Fellow and author of the ground-breaking Corporate Warriors. Companies like Blackwater have been roaming Iraq without oversight or management for years. Of course the Iraqi government was going to lose patience. Here is Singer’s take:

New episode of Midwest Teen Sex Show - Gym Class

"I hated the body I had in high school. I never wanted to be naked in the locker room. But if I had that body now, I'd walk around the locker room naked. Heck, I'd go to other schools and walk around their locker room naked."

Don't drink too much.

"We're used to hearing weird stories, but with his intoxication we figured this one would be different, that the amount of money wouldn't be exact," said Waukesha Police Lt. William Graham. "How do you get so intoxicated that you lose your pants?"

Not what you might think. It's sexual EDUCATION. Funny and informative. I reccommend the "Older Boyfriend" episode to start with.
