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.
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 … 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.
This is one of those “don’t try at home” items. What happens when you cram 10,000 sparklers into a bucket and then light them?
Honestly, I love fireworks of all types. As long as I know they are going to go “bang”, they don’t trip off my PTSD. One could debate whether one would need to be a pyro to attempt such a stunt. However, I think most of us would want to, at a safe distance, witness 10,000 Sparklers all burning at once. I confess that I sure want to see it. However, being aware of the fire risk, I doubt I would foster the courage to actually attempt the stunt on my own. Lest not forget the fact that a huge plume of sparks and fire would certainly lead to fire, police and arrest in my urban neighborhood.
Gizmodo brought this crazy contraption to my attention. I tend to disagree with the Gizmodo headline stating that it is “probably overkill”. It totally is overkill. Like bringing a shoulder launch missile to an archery tournament. Check out the image below.
While you may think this is some type of joke, it is not. Perhaps the most frightening aspect of this device is that someone was serious enough about it to file a patent on the “animal trap”. (That is where I got the picture from.)
Personally, I have a hard enough time baiting a regular mouse trap. I end up tripping the things when I go to place them. I would be afraid of a fatal “oops” in this case.
