Race-specific, too. Four bathrooms wherever you go. That would make for quite a wide range of options nowadays.

8 US Destroyer collides with cargo ship?

It got hit in the side. Like automobile accidents the guy that gets hit in the side is usually not at fault.

9 The hilarious Canadian sitcom "Corner Gas" had an episode about public bathrooms.

The gas station and adjoining diner had shared rest rooms. The Toronto-born diner owner replaced the signs for Men and Women with the Mars and Venus signs to make the place more classy. No one else in the rural Saskatchewan town knew what they meant, so they went into the wrong bathrooms. The men, having mistakenly used the women's room, credited the gas station owner with upgrading the facilities.

18 Maybe they were playing some kind of sneaky "hide from radar" or "hide from satellite" game, but other than that I can't imagine how you manage to get rammed by a cargo ship in the middle of the night. It's just crazy that it would be an "accident".

19 Judge in the Cosby trial is making the jurors come back for another day of deliberations today. Jurors have already deliberated more than 52 hours over a span of 5 days, and have told the judge they are deadlocked. Judge has denied repeated requests from the defense to declare a mistrial.

The jury is sequestered. This is beginning to feel like a hostage situation. There are only 3 counts. If the jurors can't agree, they can't agree. Let them go already.

That happened to my ship while we were in the Med. The frigate hit us so hard it splashed water down our stacks and put out the boilers. We were at GQ for while after that one. Their C.O. was flown off, relieved of command, in about 30 minutes.

Middle of the day. During UNREP, instead of coming alongside from astern, the ship driver decided to slide in from the side. It was a big hit. We lost something like 10,000 gallons of JP5. I was on an oiler.

I get the feeling that the judge wants a guilty verdict even more than the prosecution does. I doubt Andrea Constand would be terribly upset either way. She got what she was after ($$$) years ago.

42 I'm reading Blitzed: Drugs in the Third Reich.

In the 30's, methamphetamine was sold in drug stores as Pervitin* and damn near everybody used it. It was put in chocolates for housewives!

A military medical doctor was looking for ways to battle soldiers' fatigue and put some pep in their goose-step, and this seemed a good solution. During the invasion of Poland (krystallmethnacht?) officers wrote of its ability to bring focus and drive to his soldiers, and they seemed revved up for action, any action, with some euphoria and pleasant mild hallucinations as a bonus.

These rules of the road are different, and it appears from the photos that the merch had the right-of-way.

Even if she didn't, the Navy's policy is, internally anyway, that this never should have happened and the CO and his navigation team have a lot to answer for. They have 2 separate navigation teams running calculations on all tracks at the same time. How they *both* missed a CBDR is question #1.

91 I was initially pretty excited when I saw the headline about conservatives rushing the stage at the Trump assassination play, but the article I read had some pretty lame chants attributed to the protestors. They were supposed to unfurl a large banner that says #conservativelivesmatter

103 The Blues Brothers debuted as Belushi and Aykroyd's contribution to a series of "How We Spent Our Summer" sketches on SNL.

The others were all spoofs. Gilda Radner's clip showed her giving tours of her apartment to make extra cash. Laraine Newman's showed her as a big movie star in LA (I think she had just filmed FM.)

And Garrett Morris's showed him...posing as a model for lawn jockey statues. For real.

133 Our local news had a clip of the Julius Caesar scene where the Trump lookalike is murdered. I found it hard to watch and finally left the room .

The actor is unmistakably Trump like in appearance. He is set upon by a group and fights for his life. He is held from behind and struggles to get away as he is stabbed. Blood flows.

If you enjoyed the video of the man being beaten by a gang for having the temerity to be a Trump supporter, you'll like this.

Don't mean to sound holier than thou, but I thought it was very unsettling and frankly, sick and twisted.
