Wright Brothers’ Early Spacewalk Test (ca. 1915)

1915-spacewalktest

Using a pressurized helium-vapor suit, Orville and Wilbur Wright sought to solve future problems of space exploration, and their younger step brother “Nottle” volunteered to be the test pilot. Once afloat, the tethers snapped, and he sailed over the horizon. He landed in France and enlisted with the 43rd Balloon Company, serving as a practice target in WWI. Out of eleven volunteers, he was never shot down by the Boche once, and he survived the friendly fire, too.

Okay, maybe it wasn’t a spacewalk test, and maybe it had nothing at all to do with WWI, but maybe it did, depending on how you look at it.

Andrew Loomis’ Fun With A Pencil [1939] was his first book, and my all-time favorite. Download it and give it to your favorite budding artist.

The Divje Babe flute, estimated at 43,000 years old, is the oldest surviving wind instrument. It was played by Neanderthals.

The Geißenklösterle flute is pretty old, too.

lima-beans

lima bean (n.)
1756, associated with Lima, Peru, from which region the plant (Phaseolus lunatus) was introduced to Europe c. 1500. Among the earliest New World crops to be known in the Old World, Simmonds’ “Dictionary of Trade” (1858) describes it as “esteemed,” but it has the consistency of a diseased dog kidney.

I grew up with a subscription to Mad Magazine. Check out what writer Dick DeBartolo is doing these days.

Interesting list of “hate crimes” that were hoaxes (with links).

Antnado.

Grifters. I’ve seen ’em everywhere I’ve ever lived. I remember growing up in Ohio and hearing the warning that “the Williamsons are in town.” Their gig was to offer to reseal your asphalt driveway with hot mop. The “hot mop” washed away with the next rain, and by that time they were out of town.

A turkey’s gender can be determined from its droppings–males produce spiral-shaped poop and females’ poop is shaped like the letter J. More fun turkey facts here.

Late Election predictions by media talking heads were spot on.
Here’s one reaction. Here’s another. Okay, I’ll stop.

The Dig Tree was where the Burke and Wills Expedition buried supplies in 1861. It was Australia’s version of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, except they had camels instead of horses. Out of 19 explorers, only one man survived the trek.

Update: I had pre-scheduled this post with the assumption that Hillary Clinton would win the Election since all the polls and talking heads said she would. I am pleasantly surprised at the outcome.

There is still hope for this Great Country.

Sometimes I sits and thinks, and sometimes I just sits.

VOTE BUNK

Josh Jennings for Congress. He speaks truth to power as far as he knows.

4 November 2016 – Fayetteville, NC: Twenty hold-ups in 2-1/2 minutes by same man. No arrests, suspect at large.

This omni-directional conveyor belt is called a Celluveyor. Here’s another one with a jumpy jivey music track [via].

Here’s what happens if you dress up as your dog’s favorite toy for Halloween.

I quit watching TV decades ago because the family arguments on what to watch weren’t worth it. Recently they introduced me to The Walking Dead on Netflix and I got hooked. Three weeks later I’m overruled again, and The Walking Dead has been preempted by reruns of Roseanne. Now I’m back to not watching TV.

Ever feel like you’re merely a walking protein?

John Lydon [aka Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols] once appeared before Judge Judy. Here’s the vid.

Noodling. Yeah, we posted the vid before, and you’ll never do it in your lifetime, unless you really want to.

Don’t forget to reset your calendars tonight.
