Cow eyes…

leave a comment »

This article   is rather interesting,   because I had read that villagers in Africa had used capes with eyes painted on them to keep predators from attacking them from behind.   If Botswana can profit from painting eyes on their cattle’s butts,  more power to them.

Faux guac…

leave a comment »

I loathe avocados,  so it’s no detriment to my taste buds if the guacamole is missing that oily green fruit,  but you avocado lovers are in terrible danger.   Odds are you have already been the victim of  fake guacamole.

Does anyone think…

…that if Obama was still president,  the Hong  Kong protesters  would be waving American flags?   Gee,  they don’t seem to know that Donald J. Trump is a fascist and Nazi and hates foreigners and his supporters are evil just like him.   How can they be unaware what an awful place America is?

Ricky, te botamos!

leave a comment »

That means  “Ricky, we threw you out!”,  so congratulations to the people of Puerto Rico for forcing the  corrupt governor  to resign.   Does this mean that  the impeachment proceedings which the legislature has started will be dropped?   And dare we hope that the people of Puerto Rico will go after many  more corrupt  officials,   since they have a plentitude to choose from?

Yosemite firefall 2019…

leave a comment »

I have been lucky enough to see the very strange natural phenomenon known  as ‘firefall’ at Horsetail Fall in Yosemite National Park,  but the report on  this year’s  solar event makes it sound like it has become more trouble than it’s worth.   That is certainly a great pity,  because seeing what looks like a vertical river of fire falling down a cliff face is a stunning spectacle.

Does Equifax owe you money?

leave a comment »

It might, and  this article  tells you how to check.   I agree with author Josephine Wolff  that we must all do our part to extract money from the corporation so that data breaches have large and painful costs associated with them.   If we all do our part,  there should be fewer and smaller breaches.  I did not qualify,  but perhaps you will.

How bad…

…was Mueller Day?   This provides  a pretty accurate gauge,  don’t you think?
