heh.

I was looking at that photo and starting to feel a little creepy about admiring such a young thing, then I recalled that we are actually the same age.

A tale told in Twitter images: A man tried to impress his date by jumping across from one building to another, but instead got stuck in the crack between buildings. After 2 hours he was freed after firemen broke down the wall in one of the businesses occupying the ground floor.

Sorry, but I tried posting an image here and only got the word "Image" with a link back.

I wonder if the doctors interviewed the patient about his hobbies. Bagpipes have been known to be disease farms. For those with weak lungs there are small electric pumps that fill the bag.

No, they did not ask about his hobbies. That was mentioned in the article as the reason why they missed a proper diagnosis. This bacteria and fungus problem gives me a shudder.

Circa 1896. "Ship's company, U.S.S. Maine." Two years before the battleship blew up and sank in Havana Harbor, killing most of the crew and precipitating the Spanish-American War.


Follow the link to the main page and click to view the large image. The varied expressions of the crew members are priceless, down to the guy in the front holding his crotch.


A great-great-etc. grand-relative of mine was on that ship. Adolph Marix. First Jew to graduate Annapolis and *I think* first Jew to earn the rank of Admiral in the US Navy. He was later put in charge of investigating the explosion.

My family has owned boats ever since and none of the them have ever exploded (knock on wood!).

Do note: the 20 blue states in that map changed from heart disease being the leading cause of death in 2000 to cancer taking its place in 2014.
