WTF! Giraffe ‘Hunting’ for Sport

Some things are so iconically sacred in nature that their demise should/must generate a response to abuses. So, when I came upon a piece about the decline in the giraffe population I was interested to followup. Imagine my disgust when I discovered companies actually provide a safari experience to hunt/kill giraffes. I am not anti-hunting, but this is beyond the pale. Shame meter pegged! The giraffe populations are allegedly in serious decline….could these morons be part of the problem…of course they are! All rationalizations aside, this is obscene.

Children Possessed in Gary, Indiana: Creepy Stuff, “Portal to Hell”

exorcism

“Meanwhile, someone called DCS and asked the agency to investigate Ammons for possible child abuse or neglect. The caller, who is not named in the DCS report, speculated that Ammons might have a mental illness. The person believed the children were performing for Ammons, and she was encouraging their behavior.

DCS family case manager Valerie Washington was asked to handle the initial investigation. She gave the following account to police and in her intake officer’s report:

Hospital personnel examined Ammons and her children and found them to be healthy and free of marks or bruises. A hospital psychiatrist evaluated Ammons and determined she was of “sound mind.” Washington interviewed the family in the hospital.

While she spoke with Ammons, the 7-year-old boy started growling with his teeth showing. His eyes rolled back in his head. The boy locked his hands around his older brother’s throat and refused to let go until adults pried his hands open. Later that evening, Washington and registered nurse Willie Lee Walker brought the two boys into a small exam room for an interview. Campbell joined them.

The 7-year-old stared into his brother’s eyes and began to growl again. “It’s time to die,” the boy said in a deep, unnatural voice. “I will kill you.” While the youngest boy spoke, the older brother started head-butting Campbell in the stomach. Campbell grabbed her grandson’s hands and started praying.” (Source: Indy Star)

What happened next would rattle the witnesses, and to some it would offer not only evidence but proof of paranormal activity.

“It’s time to die,” the boy said in a deep, unnatural voice. “I will kill you.”

According to Washington’s original DCS report — an account corroborated by Walker, the nurse — the 9-year-old had a “weird grin” and walked backward up a wall to the ceiling. He then flipped over Campbell, landing on his feet. He never let go of his grandmother’s hand. “He walked up the wall, flipped over her and stood there,” Walker told The Star. “There’s no way he could’ve done that.”

Later, police asked Washington whether the boy had run up the wall, as though performing an acrobatic trick. No, Washington told them. She said the boy “glided backward on the floor, wall and ceiling,” according to a police report.

Armstrong Wins…USADA Sucks Air

USADA is an abusive organization…..Pathetic….Watch Phil Liggett….He never BS’s….just my own interest in cycling and my rejection of bullies and easily swayed public opinion. Evil defamation of character. Lance wins my respect. I watched everyone of those tours….beginning to end. Now what, is Wiggins the next bad boy? He did win awfully easily.

Tonya Harding Pregnant & then ………………..

I awakened this morning to the dizzyingly, terrific news that the NW skating ‘legend’ Tonya Harding (Price) is pregnant. I was ecstatic over the trash gene pool being extended in the Pacific NW. Then again, maybe there is another triple axle gene in there. Then my day descended, as my week pretty much has, (did anyone notice some odd forces at play this week? Full moon stuff?) into a morass of regrets. Two days ago, my Blackberry completed its’ own triple axle into the toilet and despite all manner of efforts to dry it out, it is kaput. But, things were about to get worse.

Now, an immensely bigger fumble on my part: I transferred hundreds upon hundreds of family pics from my computer to an external hard drive to free up needed gigs. I have done this before. No probs. So, as I moved a folder over into the external gizmo (without verifying they actually loaded!…they always had before) I ERASED the folder from my computer. On and on I went freeing up 20 gigs of space…..that is  how many pics I had stashed on the hard drive.

Woe is me! They did not load for whatever reason. I cannot find them cued up and waiting. Gone. Some, many of these photo’s, were priceless treasures.Hundreds of pics of flies too.

So, verify the transfer, then and only then dump the duplicate folders. Ok, maybe I was too hard on Tonya Harding.

Update re my stupid move: Well, at least I did one thing correctly…I had previously subscribed to Carbonite. Well, despite the fact that I had indeed deleted the entire files, Carbonite had originally backed up those pics and based upon a tip from FB pal Mara, I found them. The restore mode will take awhile, but it will be worth the wait.

Life = Pilliing (Livin’ It?)

Life = “…pilling is the formation of small, fuzzy balls on the surface of a fabric. It detracts from the appearance of the fabric, making it look old and worn, and it is often difficult to restore a garment with fabric pilling to its original condition. Certain types of fibers and weaves are more prone to fabric pilling than others, but it is often a normal part of wear and tear.”

Pilling Along The Way (SwittersB)

Live your life. Pills are a normal part of life. If you haven’t got any, what the hell are you waiting for? If you do, embrace them your sorry son of a bitch!  Ok, I just watched “We Were Soldiers” A bit over inspired, perhaps.

No, I recently ran into an old acquaintance from another life of say 25 years ago. A life boxed and compartmentalized for  sanity’s sake. He remarked about some ol’ timers he had run into from the old, hard days and how those men all were stuck back in negativity and the past. We shook our heads knowing it was wasteful, but looking over our shoulder to be careful negativity was not looming. I raised my glass to that old friend and saluted where we had been, and more importantly, where we were now. In the present! To the past (if you can remember it) and to the present and future. Rough up that fabric. Oh, psycho babble aside, if the lid on the box is ajar; close it.

Pebble Mine’s Reality Check (China)

I can by no means frame the contentious Pebble Mine debate any better than the article I am linking to in this post by Andrew Jensen @ The Alaska Journal of Commerce. Seriously take a few minutes to read it and consider the realities here. Whether the mining process moves forward or not based upon celebs, fishing industry, eviro’s and FFers input is, to me, frankly insignificant. The often ignored point is China. It is being ignored in our country’s current debt debate and financial crisis by many. China now owns us. China is one of the largest consumers of resources and will surpass us and India soon to consume the majority of natural resources. China will eventually own the majority interest in Pebble Mine. Yes. (China & Mining & Fishing) (China & Gold Production)

“So while China is snapping up mineral rights for essentials like copper and stockpiling its rare earth minerals — for which the U.S. is 100 percent dependent on imports — not developing Pebble may not be a luxury America can afford forever, according to Yale professor Oswald Schmitz.” (I say we won’t have a say because China will dictate the development for us)

So, with all the notable celebs and groups that have mounted anti Pebble attention why no substantive response from the Obama Administration. They (Dem’s) have held the power since 2006 (Congressional) and Executive since 2008. Why? The usual connect the media dots by such groups re all manner of fav issues is most often enough to result in legislation or executive orders for regulations to control most aspects of our life, especially in the last two years. Token BS about innovation for green this and that; wind turbines, solar…yadda yadda.  Why nothing substantive on Pebble Mine? The sense of urgency should be about our financial house of cards, our resources (managed or not) and China. Just a matter of time re the Pebble Mine holdings and China’s insertion into the mix. Then what?

Shameless with William Macy et al is akin to………

Bad!!!!!!!!!  Mind crushing bad! Uncomfortably bad. So bad you will marvel at how they assembled so much uncomfortable, unspeakable bad in one hour of addictive mind warp. Crass? Believe me, yes.

Frank

Dear me, spare yourself the mind twisting experience of that amazing ensemble cast that takes your brain on a ride on Shameless on Showtime. Watch it if you dare. William H. Macy will win an Emmy. The cast is top to bottom amazing. Kids in it…not for kids <14 or so (depending upon your threshold for explicit sex, suggested sex).

Nothing to do with fly fishing, fly tying, outdoors? It is why the hell you thank your lucky stars and turn toward the solace of the rod and water.  You won’t find balance, harmony, mellow here. Ok, back to normal….

Now you see why I don’t do movie, music, TV reviews……. Ok, I had  a few too many Stoli’s and Cranberry juice bebida’s. Actually, I posted this yesterday with a, I thought, creative, edgy, over the top string of obscenities and uncomfortable visuals following the “akin to….” part. I was quickly overcome with some latent, Catholic guilt thing and cleaned it up. Not as edgy as I thought.
