1970s Hair 11970s Hair 2

Unfortunately some of these *ahem* styles drifted across the Atlantic. I remember A1, A2, B1, B2, B3, C1, C3, D1 & D2. Mine was a mix of A1, B4 and D3, and no, I’m not gonna post it.

Hot Air Blown [Updated with Link to story]

balloon-vs-tower 2
I don’t know the story behind it, but that’s some scary stuff. Besides the balloon snag, that tower wasn’t engineered to handle a bigass inflated windsock trying to pull it down.

UPDATE: Apparently the accident dates to October 2004 during a hot air balloon festival in Albuquerque NM. After the collision, the veteran pilot grabbed the tower to stop the gondola from swinging, and he and two boys (ages 10 and 14) climbed down 600 feet as news helicopters buffeted the tower before being called off. Here’s the balloon in better health:

Amish Ice Cutters Rescue Stranded Ice Breakers Rescuing Global Warming Proponents Stranded in Antarctica

harvesting ice

[Strutts News Services - Cleveland] Getting from Pennsylvania to Antarctica takes a while, but steady diligence always works.

Mennonites from around the globe are moving to free rescue vessels trapped in pack ice that threatens to crush the hulls of ships sent to evacuate a bunch of vapid idiots whose intentions were to view and compile data on melting ice during the Antarctica summer. The vapid idiots were successfully evacuated by ice breaking helicopters, and they’re now home safe and sound.

Those who volunteered for the rescue missions, as of this posting, are not, and nobody cares about those brave bastards.

EXCEPT FOR THE AMISH.
