R.I.P. Gregg Allman (1947 – 2017).

4 minutes and 15 seconds of a miniature goat on a hammock [via].

Here’s a small collection of Rodney Dangerfield tattoos.

Listen to the sweet song of a disturbed Dødningehoved natsværmer.

These are kinda fun bug sounds, too. The long-horned beetle is my favorite – little squeaky shoes. More here.

Started working Sudoku puzzles recently, and for a while I could only get up to a difficulty level of 2 using a basic brute force method. I began to recognize logic patterns and suspected others. This site describes them, from “naked singles” to “hidden quads.”

Schopenhauer’s 38 ways to win an argument exposed underhanded and dishonest tactics in The Art of Being Right (1831). Intended as acerbic snark, how many have you seen used in modern political discourse?

Artificial Intelligence program composes Irish folk songs. Check out this sample (performed by humans).

Rhinoceros was a funk/rock band in the late 60s-70s that should have received wider recognition.Check out “Apricot Brandy.” Don’t laugh – it made No. 46 on the Billboard charts in 1969. They never overcame the fact that they were manufactured by Electra Records.

Star Trek Farts

Yeah, right.

Do the Madison. Now do the Tighten Up. Now do The Frank Sinatra – eight ball in the side pocket. C’mon people now. It’s Hully Gully Callin’ Time.

I’m guilty of it, and my dad did it to me, too.
This is what Dads are for.

“From Fu Hao to Joan of Arc to Rear Adm. Grace Hopper and beyond, women have played decisive roles in military affairs since the dawn of history.” Who was the greatest woman in military history? USNI wants to know.

I met Myldred Jones. She had been the highest ranking woman in the Navy ( Lt. Commander) but I didn’t know it at the time. All I knew was that she ran a shelter for teens in trouble, was planning to build a 2-story residence for runaways on the adjacent property, and seemed like a nice little old lady. I was just a year or so out of the midwest, so was polite and respectful. I don’t recall exactly what I said, but her response was, “Cut the crap. This is business.”

Check out who’s under cyber attack and from where. Live map.

The Runaways. Yeah, I got it, but I liked this song better.

Please return your seat to its upright position.

Sam Kinison‘s version of Wild Thing was better than the original.

I’d love to know who those guys were and what that bass sounded like. Gimme a heads up with a link if you know.
