The US Naval Institute released the results of their informal poll “Who Was The Greatest Woman In Military History?
The results are both surprising and unsurprising. I voted for Boadicea. She gave the military a spine to fight the Romans.

We posted a photo of Stanley The Great in April 2014 without really knowing who he was. Check out the update.

Bravo Land is now on my bucket list, if only to re-install erased history removed by evil people on The Slab o’ Time:

Inside the chain of stores, we immediately spotted the Bravo Land Slab o’ Time, an impressively massive tree cross-section propped against a wall. It’s from a Giant Sequoia blasted down in the 1950s, over 2,000 years old. It features a scattering of little metal labels nailed to it. A plaque explained: “The tags on the log denote growth rings that grew in the same year as various significant world events.”

“214 BC – Great Wall of China”…”197 BC – Roman Empire Begins.” There’s a 1,284 year gap, though, and the sign noted the “conspicuous absence of tagged growth rings from the 5th to the 15th centuries…. That period of time produced few significant events in world history.”

We’re not totally buying that. Closer inspection revealed missing tags radiating out from the slab center, two small holes indicating where each notable achievement used to be. We asked about it, and were told that “some political people” had come in and pointed out which milestone labels should be removed (you know, to fix world history).

We’ve seen timelines ravaged by tourism slab deniers before — but always on public land, at national and state parks. Complainers raise a stink, form a committee, and voila, adjusted! Bravo Land is a private enterprise. But once a slab is called out for being on the wrong side of history, there’s little choice but to get out the pliers and pry off the “Magna Carta,” and Columbus and Ponce de Leon “discovers” tags (we’re just guessing about the discards, since they’re gone).

Petey was a seal, but his real name was Shag. TRUE.

Stupid joke from a long time ago:

Okay, so a penguin is driving through the Mojave to Las Vegas when his A/C breaks down. He pulls into a repair garage in Pahrump and tells the mechanic that he needs air conditioning to survive the heat. Mechanic says, “There’s an ice cream shop a block away, cool down and be back in an hour.”

The penguin hits the ice cream shop, hangs out in the freezer eating ice cream, but since he only has flippers to hold the cones he makes a mess. An hour later he pays for the ice cream, cleans up the mess and returns to the mechanic and asks, “So what did you find?”

Mechanic says, “Looks like you blew a seal.”

Penguin wipes his beak and says, “Nah. It’s just ice cream.”

Trouble at Taminmin Humpty Doo.

Yeah, I said Humpty Doo.

Saturday Matinee – Heavy Slabs in Tasmania, Puddles Painting Party, Manualist Extraordinaire & Fishbone

Saturday, 27 August 2016

August 2016 – “Tasmania’s most famous wave comes to life to launch the Australian winter with a roar. When the southern hemisphere starts to rumble and shake under the weight of wild winter weather, The Stern, out there on the south-eastern tip of Tasmania, bears the full brunt of the conditions.”

[Found here.]

Found here. Yeah, it’s cool for the first minute or so, but hey. I’d rather watch this guy’s stuff.

Dude is awesome.

One of my all time ska favorites. Fishbone kicks it in 2013.

Have a great weekend, folks, and we’ll see what happens tomorrow.

“Okay, I need some bullet-shooting handcuffs, a bullet-shooting lighter, a bullet-shooting camera with 3 or 4 rolls of bullet-shooting film, a bullet-shooting WalkieTalkie, a bullet-shooting knife, and a bullet-shooting flat hand grenade. I’ll take that bullet-shooting mustache and the bullet-shooting beard, too. How much for the bullet-shooting missile grenade? Oh, and I’ll also need some bullet-shooting ammunition, then I’m good to go.”

Egyptian Donkey Jump

Growing food to feed people and animals is getting more efficient, reducing back-breaking manual labor. Check out this hi-tech stuff.

Everybody knows that it’s a big ‘ol goofy world.

I blame Hanna-Barbara for this.

Roller Skiing. Yeah. Skiing. With rollers. It’s also about the only time you can put the letter “i” twice in sequence in one word. (II could be wrong.)

Gecko hands dude has gecko hands.

This is what you get when you Google something arbitrary like “Dark Sunday Face.”

Top image from Donkey Jumping in Egypt:

“In this Friday, Feb. 5, 2016 picture, Ahmed Ayman and his donkey jump over a barrier in the Nile Delta village of Al-Arid about 150 kilometers north of Cairo, Egypt. Donkeys are a fixture of daily life in rural Egypt, where they are used for transportation or to haul goods, and can often be seen in Cairo and other major cities. But itís rare to see a donkey gallop, much less go airborne.”

Stuff happens. Sometimes it’s caught on mic.
