Ratted out.

There’s water on Mercury?

Wikipedia is actually debating whether or not to delete references to the 1918 Spanish flu. Now about the Wuhan Chinese Asian Corona virus…


“It’s a funny thing… After the fall of communism, everybody in the world agreed that socialism was a failure. Everybody in the world, more or less, agreed that capitalism was a success. And every capitalist country in the world apparently deduced from that that what the west needed was more socialism.” – Milton Friedman 1993.

Saturday Matinee – Tommy Burst, Stefan Ilic, Steyr 80A Sincrobulli & Robbie Robertson

Saturday, 21 March 2020 by

I had something similar that shot plastic pellets. Since there were no refills, you had to chase them down after spraying the playground. (Not sure, but I think the bad guy is Otis from The Andy Griffith Show.)

Serbian trio featuring Maestro Stefan Ilic on fiddle [via].

More tractor? Don’t know anything about this one except it’s an Austrian Steyr 80A Sincrobulli.

Robbie Robertson remakes The Band‘s classic The Weight, with performers from around the world. That song is one of my all-time favorites.

We have some tough times ahead, and the best thing to do is to ignore the newsmedia fear-mongers. The biggest threat is not the Wuhan v-word, but the overwrought government reactions to it, so work with what you got until the storm passes… and it will.

See you back here tomorrow.

Uh-huh-huh.

Military rations for five in 1957.

Watch this giant sea cucumber poop.

How to write a traditional Irish folk song.

Top 10 most congested roadways in the U.S.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy is 42. 😀

NSFW, NSFK & disgusting (but I found the commentary funny).

Don’t call it “the Wuhan Virus” or “the Chinese Virus.” CNN says so.

Media-fomented panic is causing widespread shortages of staples (and tempers). Fight 1. Fight 2.

Saturday Matinee – Brogan’s Bar, Selfish Murphy & The Rumjacks

Saturday, 14 March 2020 by

It’s St. Patrick’s Day Eve Eve Eve. so let’s wear out the green.

Locals show up for impromptu performances of traditional songs at Brogan’s Bar, Ennis, County Clare, Ireland.

Selfish Murphy is a Romanian band (playing a Swedish DJ’s song with an Irish twist). “Wake me up when it’s over” was my mantra recently…

Hailing from Sydney Australia, The Rumjacks kick it with a profane but fun romp of a protest song.

Have a great weekend and we’ll see you tomorrow (unless the internet is shut down due to the mass hysteria over The Virus).
