All the stuff you thought you missed over the holiday...

So as you read this, I am back at work after a blissful 5 days off for the holiday.    While I try to work off whatever weight I accrued over that time, let me catch you up on a few things.

Like did I tell you I discovered what is really going on on the trail?  They are setting things up for I&M to remove the old electrical towers in favor of new, "octagonal" towers which I am told will have less of a footprint on the area.

One of them is going right where the footbridge to cross back into mid-complex is- well, was.  But fear not, the bridge is safely on the other side of the trail, awaiting its return.

Yes, we were going through barriers to gain access, but we weren't alone...

And quite frankly, if they REALLY wanted us out, they'd put locks on the chains instead of latches.

Or at least have south end security a little tighter, lol!


The other day, I got an important missive by e-mail, you know the kind...

Good day, Hope all is well with you and your family, You may not understand why this mail came to you.

United Nation have been having a meeting for the past 3 months which ended 21th, September 2016 with the World Bank President Mr.Jim Yong Kim and the USA Secretary of State Mr. John Kerry.

This email is to all the people that have been scammed in any part of the world, and the people that have lost their properties in the earthquakes and tsunami United Nations and World Bank have agreed to compensate them with the sum of $USD3 Million (Three Million United States Dollars) each, this includes every foreign contractors that may have not received their contract sum and people that have had an unfinished transaction or international businesses that failed due to Government problems etc.

Your name and email was in the list submitted by our Monitoring Team of Economic c and Financial Crime Commission observers and this is why we are contacting you, this have been agreed upon and have been signed. You are advised to contact Mr. Banthoon Lamsam of Kasikorn Bank of Thailand, as he is our representative, contact him immediately for your check...

The amusing part was the "sender"...

Good-luck and kind regards,
Mr. Ban Ki-Moon
UN making the world a better place 

I guess they decided to go into scamming since Trump's gonna cut 'em off, lol....


The kids came over for the Michigan/OSU game...

As I said on FB:  "Horns on head, how appropriate..."

Peanut chillin' with "Uncle Scrappy"  (actually cousin Scrappy, but that's how Jessica posted it)

And earlier in the day, we spotted a deer doing the mannikin challenge...


The other day, I saved this bon mot for a possible MWN and then forgot:

North Korea has made a state request to officials in China pleading for them to stop referring to ‘glorious leader’ Kim Jong-un as fat.

Ministers have reportedly asked their neighbours to refrain from referring to the chunky Swiss cheese fan as Jin San Pang or ‘Kim Fatty III’ in media or conversations.

Apparently ‘Kim Fatty III’ is a widely used nickname for Kim in China along with Jin Pang Pang (Kim Fat Fatty) or Jin San Fei (Kim Abundant III).

Now According to the Apple Daily in Hong Kong, terrified North Korean government officials have called on their old comrades to take action before heads roll.

They are terrified the tyrant will find out about the insult and look for someone to blame.


As they posted over the holiday, I beseech you, if you missed them, go back and catch the Time Machine anniversary special and subsequent M10 countdown.  They are well worth it!

Now THIS is a century-mark worth noting!!!- Bobby G.


Put up the Christmas lights during the off-time.  Here they are, with Scrappy's expert opinion:


Finally, a headline I just HAD to share:

NASA Wants You to Help Astronauts Poop
Space diapers just won't cut it
It would seem NASA is having a hard time coming up with a suitable in-suit system for the excretory process, and is asking for inventors to figure out how to do it, because they're done with all that Apollo-13 stuff.  I would think that a perfect solution would be to affix tubes to the pertinent physiological areas, and have a sensor that opens the tube to hard vacuum as needed.  Not only would it suck the stuff right out, but it would also help with space hemorrhoids and, if used for urination as well, could well eliminate the need for space Viagra!


  1. Chris:
    ---Glad you enjoyed the time off...Lord know you've earned it in spades at that
    ---Changing out the towers...a novel idea, but wouldn't BURYING the lines be even better in the long run?
    (what they should have done from the beginning)
    ---Nice pictures, especially of the deer.
    ---Love those emails...I got one from James Comey - FBI (scam city all over it).
    Like he would even KNOW to contact me for anything.
    ---Just call him "Uncle Cousin Scrappy"....that sounds about right.
    ---I stayed about as FAR away from ANY football as could be done. Classic Trek on BBC America for me.
    ---The Norkos are miffed?
    Well, that hefty little piece of garbage IS fat, like in roly-poly, overweight, obese, corpulent, plump, porcine, zaftig, elephantine, chunky...that about cover it?
    Now, they can beg ME to stop...bwahahaha.
    ---Christmas lights up ALREADY???
    (like the blinky cross)
    ---As to an astronaut poop extraction system?
    Well, that's something for people with a LOT more initials after their last name than I've got...heh.

    Good post.

    Stay safe up there, brother.

    1. Uncle Cousin Scrappy? Sounds like some bad dialogue from an alleged comedy movie about rednecks...

  2. Ok this left me thinking what the hell, I have never gave any thought to how astronauts pee and poo in space until now and I wish I still didn't think about it.

    1. But you could make some serious coin with a good idea...

  3. Loved the deer doing the mannequin challenge. I saw a rooster doing the challenge this week. I thought it was fake until he called out. I jumped a few ft up!

    1. Did you happen to see the video on FB where the three cats are looking out the window at birds until the dog comes up behind them and barks? Now there was some jumping!
