Welcome and Good Morning Campers!
Welcome to Saturday.
I’m at work right now, and typing this with the power of my mind in real time, as you are reading this.
I am thinking the words just seconds before you’re reading them.
This is the first time…
<…coffee is great. Thanks. I just have to finish…>
…and then the words just appear…
<…okay, grab your gasmasks and be prepared to…>
…get around the fact that this is amazingly…
<…uncomfortable and due to the new filters it is much easier to…>
…see how cool this magic really is. So, without further ado, let’s…
<…ALARM RED, MOPP 4, ALARM RED MOPP 4! MASK! MASK!…>
…Get ready to LAFF!!!
My neighbor was working in his yard when he was startled by a late model car that came crashing
through his hedge and ended up in his front lawn.
He rushed to help an elderly lady driver out of the car and sat her down on a lawn chair.
He said with excitement, “you appear quite elderly to be driving.”
“Well, yes, I am,” she replied proudly. “I’ll be 97 next month, and I am now old enough that I don’t even
need a driver’s license anymore. “The last time I went to my doctor, he examined me and asked if I had a
driver’s license. I told him yes and handed it to him. He took scissors out of the drawer, cut
the license into pieces, and threw them in the waste basket, saying,
‘You won’t need this anymore,’ so I thanked him and left!”
Didn’t I tell you it was adorable!
A tiny bit of rattlesnake meat.
Remarking, “Don’t look horror-stricken,
You’ll find it tastes a lot like chicken.”
Now chicken I cannot eat.
Because it tastes like rattlesnake meat!

After his retirement, the pope is going to remain in Vatican
City, but will have to vacate the papal living quarters. You
can see more about that on an upcoming HGTV episode
North Korea successfully set off an underground nuclear blast
on Monday, alarming the neighboring South Koreans. They’re
totally out of luck. The last thing the Obama administration is
going to do is support the South during Black History Month.
Pope Benedict, 85, is resigning because of his failing health.
Too bad, says Larry King, he’s such a nice young man.
Actually there’s a special coincidence with this story.
The last Pope to resign, Gregory XII, did so in 1415. He
was one of the first interviewees on “Larry King Live”
NASA scientists warned that an asteroid will whiz past the
Earth. The last major collision occurred eons ago and killed
all the dinosaurs. We’re about to come within seventeen
thousand miles of finding out if white male Republicans
can be turned into oil.
CIA Director-designate John Brennan told his Senate confirmation
hearing that he’s opposed to waterboarding terrorists but he’s
completely in favor of drone strikes. You know how government
bureaucrats are. When you kill somebody you’re done with it, but
torture produces information and that just makes more work for
Warren Buffett bought Heinz, paying twenty-eight billion for
the food company that makes beans, Ore-Ida fries and
Weight Watchers entrees. That’s diversity. No matter which
side of your New Year’s resolution you are on, it is money
in Warren Buffett’s pocket.
Nancy Pelosi said that she opposes a congressional pay cut
because a pay cut will undermine the dignity of the job. It’s
just like clockwork. It only takes two years after an Anthony
Weiner scandal before House Members are bragging about
their dignity again.
The first passenger lawsuit has been filed against Carnival
over “horrifying conditions” on the Carnival Triumph that
caught fire. Apparently those sharks seen circling the
crippled ship was just a legal team.
The Department of Labor has suspended new enrollment in
the Job Corps. The program trains young people to get in the
work force. Which pretty much these days means learning
how to operate a Slurpee machine.
A Michigan woman claims she didn’t know she was pregnant
until she gave birth to a 10 pound baby. How obese are we
getting when a baby bump is mistaken for just another roll of fat?
Q: Why does California have the most lawyers in the country, and New Jersey have the most toxic waste sites?
A: New Jersey got first choice.
On Christmas eve, a burglar broke into the home of a lawyer.The thief took all the lawyer’s Christmas gifts from under the tree but left the packages for the wife and children alone.
As the criminal was leaving the house, he was caught by a policeman. He confessed to what he did but told the policeman that he couldn’t be arrested.
The policeman asked why, and the thief responded, “Because the law states that I’m entitled to the presents of an attorney.”

LOVE~~the most powerful force in the world.
A wise man once said …There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. So love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living.
A very interesting and highly topical video. The difference between an assault rifle and a sporting rifle.
There is a TON of hits on this one, so it might not play all the way through for you at first. Try coming back at a different time if it’s not working properly for you. Trust me … sound like a politician now, don’t I? … trust me, it’s worth figuring out!
Welcome to the Last Word. Today’s pictorial special is entitled:
”Are you afraid of heights?”
Did you know that the fear of heights is called Acrophobia from the Greek meaning “peak, summit, edge” and “fear”. It is an extreme or irrational fear of heights. Most people experience a degree of natural fear when exposed to heights, especially if there is little or no protection. Those who are confident in such situations may be said to have a “head for heights.”
Acrophobia sufferers can experience a panic attack at a high place and become too agitated to get themselves down safely. Between 2%-5% of the general population suffer from acrophobia, with twice as many women affected as men.
What do you think about these people? Do you think they are acrophobic or that they have a head for heights?
I want to know how they got the picnic table up that high!
”I don’t know, just hangin’ around.”
And we end today with the incredible power of absolute human stupidity. The only up side to this one is that the shallow end of the gene pool tends to be self correcting. If this doesn’t end up killing him, odds are that something else will soon.
Very, very soon.
Have a great day
