Woman Attacked For Taking A Selfie In A Zoo.

Tuesday, 12 March 2019

She entered the zoo enclosure illegally, turned her back on a predator to take a selfie and fortunately survived the attack. The jaguar was held for questioning and released on its own recognizance. Authorities are trying to determine if this was a hate crime as the jaguar is black.

“The Mind that can’t stop thin king.”

Tuesday, 20 January 2015

Copyrighted

No one can stop thin king. The entire concept is awesome, because when you squint your eyes you can see a small dog squatting in your mother’s flowerbed. The image is copyrighted, just like every other scribble you’ve ever seen on the internest.

“…Sophie ankle-biting kikmi dog nipping my ankles as I step out my own front door and laughing as she poops on my own front porch and laughing the way a kikmi dog does knowing that she doesn’t live here and is too small to send flying to the curb with the quick broadside of a boot – until now.”

Armistice Day: The 11th Hour of the 11th Day of the 11th Month of 1918

Walter Myers

The letter below was penned by my grand-uncle Walter (1899-1978) to his parents (my great-grandparents). He had just turned 19, and was serving in the US Army Signal Corps. In WWI that meant he was stationed at the German Front, providing reconnaissance from balloons and wiring reports via telegraph. Very dangerous place to be.

21 August 1918 – France

Dearest Mom and Dad,

Was under fire for the first time recently. No casualties. Believe me you never heard such an unearthly noise. Everything quiet then all of a sudden “Boom” s-h-h-h sh-sh-sh. The boom is when the shell bursts and the “sh” sounds like the wind whistling through a crack. The “sh” is caused by flying splinters. The damned Deutsch can’t hit a barn so we should worry. We have dugouts.

Sorry I can’t tell more. This may be cut out. I don’t think it will though because there is no information. I guess the Deutsch remember shooting at us. So this letter wouldn’t give them any “info”.

You say that you will meet me when I get off the returning transport. I think the day when I arrive will be about 10 years hence, at the present rate. However, though, the unexpected might happen and I might get home inside of 9 years instead of ten. So you get my impression from the above paragraph. However though, I am absolutely not homesick.

Of course I would like to get home, which is only natural. But I don’t want to get home ’till the “Guerre” is finished and finished to a frizzle and finished in our favor, and the damned deutsch exterminated.

We are now sleeping on the ground and in pup tents. Great sport, too. Just like a big camp.

Well, I guess we will call things off for the present. So, “Au revoire cher Pere et Mere.” I will see you “Apres La Guerre.”

With love,
Soldier Bill

Unfortunately, The Armistice lasted barely twenty years, allowed the creation of the WehrMacht, and WWII ensued. The Korean “Conflict” was stalled the same way, and now North Korea is a dangerous rogue nation. Do I need to mention Iran? Fini La Guerre.

God Bless all Veterans who fight selflessly for what’s right.
