CAR BRUTALLY DESTROYED BY SNOWPLOW: VIDEO


***

Mateus Facio was born with a Lucky Rabbit's foot in some orifice. Talk about Lucky.

A university student spent four days with a bullet lodged in his brain, mistakenly thinking he'd been hit by a stone.

Mateus Facio, 21, carried on as normal before discovering the truth, even going swimming and partying with mates. It was only when problems arose with his right arm that he sought medical help.

It takes a special person to live in a van down by the river. I am not one of those.

18 photos show the reality of van life — and it's a lot less glamorous than what you see on Instagram and TikTok

Call me a softy if you wish. I love a story with a happy ending.

Thug Tries to Rob Concealed Carry Permit Holder during Facebook Marketplace Meetup, Pays with His Life


***

He hasn't hit rock bottom yet. He's a Genius Award Winner.

A father-of-two went to great lengths to fund his heroin addiction – by abseiling down a quarry wall to steal rare peregrine falcon eggs.

Christopher Wheeldon was caught on a hidden wildlife camera, set up to monitor the nest, rappelling down a cliff face while hooked up to a harness.

An adult bird guarding the nest can be heard desperately calling out in distress but the 34-year-old tree surgeon was not deterred by its efforts to fend him off.

He is seen reaching into the nest and removing the valuable eggs, which can even fetch thousands of pounds on the middle eastern avian market.

33 About the bad guy being shot...
FTA: They met with a group of people in an alley around 5 pm, WMBD reported.

That really should have been a tipoff, you know? You do this stuff in a Walgreen's parking lot, at the pet store, by a restaurant. "Yeah, meet us behind the laundry and the deli in the alley" is a big no-no.

And the group? Big tell.

He only shot and killed one guy. No word in the story on the other miscreants. This is not as feel-good of a story as made out, given the errors involved.

But it's a little feel-good for the bad guy DRT.

Back in 1984 or so, a sheik touring the Air Force Academy offered a LOT of money to buy the Academy's white gyrfalcon of the time. We're talking starting at 7 digits, IIRC. The bird was just about snow white, and it would have been a huge status symbol for the sheik.

At the time, USAFA was one of the only organizations in the world allowed to take gyrfalcons out of the wild. I don't think that's true anymore.

I'm sorry, are we expected to believe that women live in bubbles of emotional and social isolation and are unsure how the others of their kind Feel About Things?

Are we expected to believe that women don't, in fact, communicate about this with each other EXTENSIVELY? That the entire subtext of female communication is not 'how I feel about X', and the desire to know that one's feelings are heard and considered? Is this not at the root of a lot of communication failures between the sexes, as we knuckledragging males don't get it in the same way other women do?

I'm not saying I think her post is untrue, regarding her homegirl Tay-Tay's music. I'm saying the message it sends is fake and is very much along the lines of much of women's media-- it does not exist to answer a question or impart information. It exists to be agreed with, so the poster and all the respondents feel a sense of group belonging and validation.

That and five bucks says she DGAF what men think or have or want or do.

242 I met an actual "spokesman" one time. When I was apprenticing in a motor cycle shop, the boss gave my buddy and me the rest of the day off because he wanted us to deliver a couple of wheels and wanted us to meet this guy.

A side angle of the job once called "tyre fitter" was spoke-and-wheel truing. Back when wire wheels were the only game in town, there were many patterns of spoke wires. The rims had nipples, and had to be configured for the spoke pattern that matched the amount of power you intended to put through them. Putting the whole structure together was a skilled job, because the wheel was just a box of parts until somebody put the spokes under the correct tension. They were infinitely adjustable, and there were a lot of them to do.

Craftsman in question was a retired racer, who'd once run Nortons at Daytona when it was on the sand. He dinged the spokes like a tuning fork, then spun them on a dial gauge.

From the article: 'Harvard on Friday separately announced task forces to combat antisemitism and Islamophobia, after struggling to manage campus response to the Israel-Gaza War.

'Reports of antisemitic and Islamophobic acts on our campus have grown, and the sense of belonging among these groups has been undermined,' Alan Garber, Harvard´s interim president, said in a letter to the school community.

We can provide plenty of examples of antisemitism on the Harvard Campus but where are the examples of islamophobia?

Get Zombie Sgt. Woods for that hangin'. Woods had lied about his hanging experience to get the Nuremberg job.
He did a bang-up job with the top Nuremberg war criminals he deliberately strangled with too short a drop, some taking over 20 minutes to expire. Not that there was anything wrong with that. They still got executed.

Way back, used to get in the mail a glossy Bombay Trading Company small catalog, I guess is the best description. Stuff looked cool. One time we went into a Bombay store. The 'furniture' had all the structural integrity of balsa wood, and just as lightweight. That's how I view Wayfair, cheap crap that looks nice in a picture or a tv ad but not in person.

On a slightly different note it is a common argument from the left that all of the violence by leftwing groups in the 60s and 70s was actually caused by COINTELPRO agents from the government. Then the very same people will call anyone questioning just how involved fedgov is with these ephemeral white supremacist groups a conspiracy theorist.

334 In thinking of Fetterman I'm reminded of an interview I saw recently with a late middle aged Philadelphia hooker...and stay with me here I'm not making this connection *just* to slur the Frankensenator.

So the hooker noted that Philly had been a rough place her whole life. That her friends and associates had to problem breaking the law and making a quick easy buck BUT that things had gotten far far worse. Yes you could get mugged back in the day and there were made men that might drop by to make sure you were paying the mob but the level of mindless violent crime has just exploded in recent years and shows every sign of continuing to get worse.

And...perhaps this is the story of Fetterman as well. He grew up as a thug...but even those prone to this level of degeneracy can see it has gotten worse and unless something changes will continue to. Its probably too much to expect the man to actually resist his party...but I suppose we can hope.

Proper care requires they be sprayed with a continuous fine mist. So make sure you are getting your hands on a moist owlet...

On winter camping trips I put hand warmers in a pair of clean socks and toss them into the bottom of the sleeping bag. Why the socks? It is easier to find and move a sock than it is a hand warner packet.

Robert Palmer is/was one of my all time favorites. His early work with Little Feat as his backing band were the best. His first 4 albums are all stellar. I listen to him to this day.

Too bad we lost he and Lowell George so early.

If I can't keep my feet warm when I try to sleep, I do not sleep well at all. When I did the year of blood thinners after have a stent installed, my extremities were always cold. "Not on your life", was my response when the cardiologist asked if I wished to continue using them beyond the one year date.

It's 14F here, dew point 5F, but no wind, thank God. The high today was only 33F.

Forecast low was 15F, and we usually go a bit below that. The other night, forecast was 18F and we hit 14F just before sunrise. We may get into the single digits here.

His unit has a solar irradiance sensor, and you can see the graph for that over the day. On a clear day, you see that makes a nice nice top half of sine curve (it's not exactly, but close). You can see local high noon from the time of the peak.

When it's clear. When it's cloudy, things get choppy up and downy. This behavior should give solar power people a clue x 4....

Some of those personal stations can be very unreliable, either out of calibration or installed in a bad location to close to "contamination". There's one around here that gets crazy high temp readings in summer and crazy low in winter. He might have it mounted to close to a heat pump. His humidty/dew points are quite jumpy as well.

Something, dryer vent, other "steam" source or something too close. Or his unit is just screwed up.

Here's GSP's daily "HYD" report, which includes data from their official (ie supposed to be good) stations over their area, which includes a lot of NC.

http://tinyurl.com/5hev3tcj

The readings are taken at 7AM (standard time always, it will be 8AM during DST) rather than the usual midnight-midnight range. This is so their observers don't have to get out at midnight.

But that can trip you up with the lows, especially in winter where sunrise is after 7AM. The low for the 24hr period might have happened the previous morning, and not the current late night to early morning period.

I couldn't remember how Robert Palmer died. Heart Attack. He was a chain smoker apparently. Sadly, it caught up with him. He was 54.

Lowell George didn't make it out of the 70s. All his excesses caught up with him. Died in 79. He was 34.
