Halloween Hot Links

Emu.

Live wire.

Wild West town for sale, only $1.5M [via].

Socialism works in California, but only for some…

How to levitate the components of a sandwich [via].

The POTUS speaks about illegal immigration (and it’s not DJT).

Before they come for you, have your ultralight bugout bag ready to go [via].

The Not Too Bright List. Mix and match the metaphors and similes for fun. I’m not the brightest bulb in the crayon box of hair, so use at your own risk.

Halloween’s coming up in a few days. Just sayin’.

Small firearm demonstration [via].

One of the greatest spaghetti western themes ever, composed Ennio Morricone, performed live by the The Danish National Symphony Orchestra, and conducted by Sarah Hicks.

John Lee Hooker, Carlos Santana, Paul Butterfield, Etta James and others, live at The Fillmore West, San Francisco on 18 July1986 [via]. I think that’s Elvin Bishop stepping in about 00:06:40.

Have a great weekend, folks, see you back here tomorrow for other inane stuff.

Mr. Hamburger, Huntsville, Texas

Opened in 1959, Mr. Hamburger is still in business. From their website:

“Situated across from the famous downtown Huntsville “Walls” prison unit, Mr. Hamburger has literally been the first taste of freedom for thousands of released inmates waiting for their bus ride out of town. This influence can be seen in the uniquely named burgers fitting the prison theme.”

“Bartender, gimme a pint of barley to mix with my hops.”

Yep. You guessed it.
1 pint of barley + 1 pint of hops = 1 kangaroo quart.

A Da Vinci Bridge – 15th Century Engineering

Tuesday, 23 October 2018

Okay 1502 AD is technically the 16th Century, but the engineering was already in existence.

VERY cool – You can build it on the spot if there’s available timber, no connectors required, and you can knock it down and take it with you once your army has crossed the stream, arroyo, ravine or ditch. Here’s one in use (with planks installed):

This kid constructed one without notches or connectors, using friction and compression only.
