132 I love the way Russell kept everything soft and slightly indistinct which focused the viewer's attention on the stallions while maintaining the context of the wild west. There is an immediacy to the painting that adds power to the scene and stresses the solid colors and poses of the combatants. It is very effective. It's easy to imagine him sketching furiously trying to capture the basics of the scene.

Yes. They were likely hunted to extinction by the first Indians, along with about 90% of the rest of the North American megafauna.

Mammoths, ground sloths, horses... all gone. Basically, the only large animals that survived were the ones that were both prolific and total badasses (grizzlies, bison, mountain lions).

231 Fun Fact - the AFF that you need to put out a heavy-metals fire is a known carcinogen.

I assume you're referring to PFAS, PFOS, and PFOA, etc. Those species are biopersistent, but to call them carcinogenic is premature. Here's an example of the state of things.

In 2017, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), the most well-studied per- and polyfluoroalkyl substance (PFAS), as a possible human carcinogen based in part on limited epidemiologic evidence of associations with cancers of the kidney and testis in heavily exposed subjects.

This could be another alar.

256 You hate to see this. Okay, not really. (Instapundit)

Germans are now panic buying electric heaters after firewood supplies and stoves sold out, a desperate backup option to survive the plummeting winter temperatures.

But according to the boss of the Stadtwerke Wiesbaden Netz utility company, Peter Lautz, the sheer amount of citizens using electric heaters would put enormous strain on the country’s electricity grid.

Electric heaters use between 1,000 and 3,000 watts of energy, so when all are plugged in simultaneously, it could cause a massive overload and cause the grid to collapse.

“If everyone switched on a fan heater at home, it would mean that we would have to almost double the existing network structure on every street,” said Lautz.

Why is it that the word "mastodon" is funnier than "mammoth"? For example: Phyllis Diller told the story of her flight on a very cut-rate airline. "The stewardess? This broad was so old --! You know how women get those little crow's feet around their eyes? This broad had mastodon tracks."

"Mammoth tracks" wouldn't have been as funny. Maybe it was the rhythm, 3 syllables instead of 2? But "mastodon" is somehow funnier.

307 A good portion of children do know as early as from the womb" that they are transgender

I've heard that from a very woke young lady I know . I asked her if the mother had to drink Unicorn milk during her pregnancy in order for the baby to make that decision? Our conversations tend to be rather limited . Her take on climate change is almost as much fun to discuss.

>>CHARGE THOSE CARS!!!

All anyone had to do to demonstrate that changing over to EV's from ICE was to do simple math, like taking the number of cars on the road, roughly 280M and multiplying it by the average EV battery size of 40kwh to know that's a metric f**kton of energy so much so that it dwarfs the entire amount of electricity generated and we would have to quadruple electrical generation just for EV's alone.

It's a dangerous marxist fantasy.

It may or may not be true (since when has that mattered?) but Walmart is perceived as "down market" from Target. When people are feeling pinched in the wallet they will shift from one to the other. Watch for the same thing to happen with Walmart vs Dollar General as the non-recession drags on.

366 It's no surprise that leftists have become so radicalized that they seem to have lost all reason and all perspective on matters related to Trump. It certainly tends to validate the Trump Derangement Syndrome that was coined to describe those who have lost all connection to reality when it comes to the former president. Moreover, it proves the power that propaganda has on the mind. If the MSM run an hourly drumbeat telling the public that Mr. X is a nogoodnik, the poison gets embedded into the psyche, which makes it nearly impossible to view him in any other way.

I've eaten horse in Japan.

It was "honestly" delicious!

Mostly, it was served either raw, sort of sashimi-style, or tataki-style, ie. briefly roasted over a flame.

Most Japanese meals usually have several small servings of a variety of foods. A small plate of horse tataki would fit right in with that.

1. There are 2 elections: a special election to fill the remainder of Don Young's term and the primary for the November election.

2. Candidate #4 dropped out, so there are only 3 candidates.

3. If enough of Begich's voters ranked Palin #2 rather than the D, which is likely, then Palin wins. We will just have a couple of weeks of vote-counting chicanery.
