Happy Independence Day! Happy 4th of July. I’m starting to write this a few days ahead of time, and I wonder what silliness will be done to us this holiday. But, I hold out high hopes that it will be celebrated in a manner befitting the proud nation that we are. I hold out high hopes … and fingers crossed … and toes crossed … we shall see I suppose.
I’m not sure whether we will be going to see the fireworks or not … we can kinda see them from our back deck, but you don’t really get the same … experience … if you know what I mean. But, with things being the way they are right now, we might just be staying home this year. I’m not really sure I want to be that close to other people. I guess we’ll see.
Anyway, why don’t we move on to some laughter and we’ll talk about patriotic stuff throughout.
Again, you youngsters aren’t going to get that one. But, I can hear it in my head!
Did You Know: (You’re starting early) (No, this one is cool and sent in by Stephanie) The Chainsaw was originally invented to help with childbirth (ACK!) Check out this website: https://www.popsci.com/story/science/weirdest-thing-chainsaw-childbirth-santorio-delayed-conception/ and here’s a teaser picture:
Can we move on to something else … please …
Anyone know how many air fresheners it takes to get the dead body smell out of a basement?
Asking for a friend.
Why does none of this surprise me?
I saw a guy at Starbucks today. No iPhone, no tablet, no laptop.
He just sat there.
Like a Psychopath.
Oh yeah … something like that could NEVER happen in real life …
Have you ever been so offended at something that you thought: “Man, I need to steal a flat screen TV right now”?
No, me neither.
Oh! I found it! I found it! I’ve been looking for this for a long time! And I’ve finally found it! A Dragon Laffs EXCLUSIVE!!!
Okay, now you have the list. Now … quit your bitching.
And it’s Aussie Peter who keeps sending these to me, LOL!
Swimming pools will reopen on the 4th of July. Due to continuing Social Distancing rules, there will be no water in lanes 1, 3, and 5.
If you guys haven’t figured out that at least 75% of all this is engineered, than you aren’t paying attention.
And more Assholes.
If you see someone coughing at the store, remember that asthmatics exist, and it’s spring/summer. Allergies still exist.
The dirty looks aren’t needed.
Isn’t just as easy to give someone the benefit of the doubt? What’s going to change?
Doesn’t she have a friend she can call? Or maybe that’s what she’s doing …
Oh the O’s and the Over-abundance of Opportunities …
At this point in 2020, dinosaurs can come back and I will just look out my window and be like, “Oh cool.”
It is only when a mosquito lands on your testicles that you realize there is always a way to solve problems without using violence.
No shit! Well said Steven Crowder.
I’m so confused right now. I see signs all over saying black lives matter. I’m just trying to figure out which black lives matter. It’s not black cops. They don’t seem to matter. It’s not my black conservative friends. They are told to shut the fuck up if they know what’s best for them by their black counterparts. It’s not black business owners. Their property does not mean anything. It’s not blacks who fought in the military. Their statues are destroyed by the black lives matter protesters with distain. So which black lives matter again?
And I don’t know where she got that, or if she wrote it herself, but it was sent to me by a black co-worker and dear friend.
Okay, I don’t care who you are, that’s just funny… and let’s do some comments now …
Vertigo! Now that should have some conspiracy story attached to it. I’m old, and people have always talked to me . . . even total strangers tell me stories that bring them to tears. But it has only been the last 15 – 20 years that I have become surrounded by people suffering from Vertigo (maybe, the famous Hitchcock thriller had a background sound you couldn’t hear, but it damaged the balance of the inner ear….?). One friend, can’t walk up her stairs, has to crawl up them, can’t drive. Another, can’t watch TV, read, but can drive.
Being prone to sinus infections, accompanied by Vertigo, I understand how it feels, but can’t imagine what it is like to be totally incapacitated by bouts that come and go, and especially the ones who are never totally free of it.
I find myself often just shaking my head in wonderment, how you manage to publish issues, when your life is filled with so much turmoil. Kudos!
Life is an adventure and not meant to be survived. It’s happened to me three times … in the last year, so I can’t say that I’m a real sufferer. I will talk to the doc about it at my next appointment. It’s kinda cool to be drunk without the use of alcohol and besides, turmoil is good for the heart! Keeps your blood thin!
Try the Epley maneuver for your vertigo. Meclizine will usually also help. I sat under a twin gun turret for hours on end and worked in steel fabrication for 35 years. The noises along with getting old didn’t help. Tinnitus AND vertigo. Now, when people tell me I have rocks in my head, they don’t understand why I actually agree with them.
Dave, seems like the Meclizine is what they prescribed me for the first round when I was in the hospital all day. Not sure if it helped or not since the vertigo was gone the next day and with this bout it was gone the next day again without any medication. Now, this Epley maneuver I’ve heard of when I was doing research the first time. I should’ve tried it, but being old, I forgot. I’ll try to remember for/if there’s a next time. Yup, for me it was fighter aircraft. the tinnitus sucks! I hate it. Constant companion.
a great issue,,,, hope you and the family have a WONDERFUL HOLIDAY
Thank you Maggie, dear. And the same to you!
Woke with stuffiness and slightly sore throat. Sucking Cold Eeze, my mantra is “It’s only a cold, it;s only a cold”. I strongly suspect it “is only a fire”, because the same storm that whipped the fires in the Salt Lake City area, also brought in cool to cold temperatures. I turned off the AC, opened the window. Could I please only deal with one disaster at a time!
Leah, two comments in one issue! Be glad you have cooler weather. WE are dealing with record highs. and everyone say it with me … IT’S ONLY A COLD!
Thanks to Lynn for sending this AWESOME Picture and description …
In this incredible model, we get an appreciation for the complex circulatory system of a human arm. This particular model shows the arterial system in a right upper limb.
The human circulatory system carries blood around an extensive network of vessels, totalling 100,000 km (62,000 miles) in length, which is equivalent to a journey 2.5 times around Earth!
For those curious, the model was made using Vascular corrosion casting, which uses resin to capture the 3D structure of blood vessels within human and animal tissue. It is widely used in research as a technique for obtaining the volume and surface area of the blood vessel network within an organ. The earliest known use of corrosion casting was by Robert Boyle in 1663.
Just friggin’ wow!
But if you ask us guys, it’s well worth it!
Okay, I’m going to have to end this issue there…no more time. Sadly, I do have things to do today. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday. Love to you all!
Cheers! ~ Impish Dragon
Alan, if it were the left arm, then something is terribly wrong with the little finger.
Wow! The cartoon “can’t get no satisfaction” took me back 56 years ago when my first child was born, and my mother would snuggle and kiss him, and sing the song.
Speaking of songs: When Covid hit, tons of songs came out about it. I have noticed NONE about the riots, lootings, hell, you’d think there would be a truckers song about the protesters cloggin’ up the highway. What the hey?
And a happy 4th to you. Next year we party!. Fortunately I live outside the city limits and am allowed bonfire and fireworks! Wish you could join in.
Wish I could too love
Just a quick thought…..weren’t you at the dentist a few weeks back….I was, had that root canal…well this week have major infection in sinus and ear, down back of head..Given mega antibiotics….doc said common problem with back upper teeth. Hits the nerve in that area. Pay attention…all connects to the brain. Well in some of us it does…. Enjoy the 4th….only old people have it….
At a guess, I would say it was a model of the circulatory system of a left arm. Or am I wrong. It is beautiful, though.
I agree. Very well done.
