Morons in the News

We all do dumb things. The two individuals I am about to mention, take it to an entirely new level. Arsenio Hall coined the phrase “things that make you go hmmmm”. I actually have that phrase as a category here. Check out these morons in the news.

The Times Are Changing for Medical Marijuana but Not in Texas

Changing Times Regarding Medical Marijuana While Texas Lags Behind

While surprised by many of the results in our recent election, the number of states legalizing marijuana is not on my list. According to this 2015 article at Pew Research Center support for marijuana legalization has been growing, younger generations are even more in favor of it, and nearly half of all Americans have tried it.

I am not here to argue about whether recreational use should be legal. I have said for decades that the criminal charges for possession are far too harsh and that it is incomprehensible that it is not already legal for medical use.  At my age and with my health issues, I currently do NO recreational drugs, legal or otherwise.

Two Crazy Ways to Kill Insects

A Few Interesting Ways to Kill Insects

Being a former beekeeper I am not too afraid of bee. However, as a former land lord, I had to deal way to often with yellow jackets, hornets and wasps. They can be a pain to get rid of…

The folks over at Boing! Boing! often share interesting and unusual video. Check out the two below.

Strange Video – Tiny Tim Covers Do Ya Think I’m Sexy

Another good reason to watch re-runs of The Tonight Show

There are certain things that should not be done. Then there are certain that are note worthy because they should not have been done and were anyways. This video certainly should fall under the later category.

Amazing Mail Deliveries

Amazing Deliveries

Putting Special Emphasis on the Word “Service” for Postal Service

While listening to an episode of  WaitWait… Don’t Tell Me!, I heard an interesting story about a letter delivery. When dug deeper on the web, I found several similar occurrences. Read on for three amazing deliveries.  I wish the USPS were as dedicated as some the postmasters mentioned below.

Scott, from Scotland

Kudos to the NZ Post for successfully delivering a letter addressed as follows:

Scott, from Scotland … aged about 60/70?? … corner of Tiniroto Road (almost). By a bridge. Has a Japanese wife — who may be older but looks about 20 … also has a daughter, about 3. Loves history … Good sense of humour … tells a good tale … Rural delivery area, sort of south east of Gisborne.

Sound more like a clue in an adventure game than an address. Continue reading “Amazing Mail Deliveries”

Miami Woman Pulls Over Police Officer

Miami Woman Pulls Over Police Officer

“The Reason I Pulled You Over Today… “

We have all seen it. No lights, no siren, no warning and whooosh, a patrol car blows right by you. One should hope that they have a reason for doing so but are the lights and sirens not to be used when such reason exists?

Some might argue that the woman in the video below is crazy, bent or simply has too much time on her hands. Watching the video, one could also conclude she is just fed up.

Regardless of why this woman put some serious effort into catching up with an officer, she claimed travelling about 100 mph, attempting multiple times to get his attention.  Look what happens when she does.

Stoned Drug Runners Turn Themselves In

Stoned Driver and Passenger Turn Themselves In

They say pot can make one paranoid. The audio below is certainly an example of that. Listen to these stoned drives, convinced they are being followed, turn themselves in… along with 20 pounds of marijuana.

It seems that the stoned criminals thought they were being followed and decided to call 911 to put an end to the cat and mouse game.  I can’t tell from the recording if they were actually being followed but found some humor in their above and beyond cooperation with the dispatcher.
