Joke of the Day

I met this fellow at the Summer Olympics. I said to him, “Excuse me but are you a pole vaulter?”
He replied, “No, I’m German, but how did you know my name was ‘Walter’.”

If attacked by a mob of clowns, go for the juggler.

Tip of the Day: Fart when people hug you. You’ll make them feel strong.

There are three kinds of people in the world. Those that can count and those that can’t. read more

Taylor Swift and Scott Kelly Surrender to the Twitter Mob

from Piers Morgan at The Daily Mail:

Yes – anti-gun liberal, U.K. nut-job Piers Morgan, who I now find I agree with more than less. Funny ole world isn’t it!

There’s only one winner in Taylor Swift and Scott Kelly’s gutless surrender to the howling Twitter mob – President Trump

Oh Taylor.

Why, why, WHY?

Just when I thought you were the only sane celebrity left in this increasingly mad world of frenzied partisan bulls**t, you suddenly decide to go all ‘woke’ on me.

As you once sang: ‘Why would you wanna break a perfectly good heart?’

Of course, we all know the answer.

Taylor Swift, who is hugely popular in middle America, hasn’t chosen this moment to abandon her very sensible apolitical stance and come out as a Democrat because she genuinely thought: ‘Oh, I must alienate half my audience today.’

No, she’s done it because the howling Twitter mob hammered her into submission. read more

Manufacturers go to great lengths to make their motorcycles as safe as possible and usually the task is handled by electronics, such as traction control, cornering ABS and electronic suspensions. Apparently, no one had thought to employ rockets to help a bike stay upright. Until Bosch, that is. read more

MMA is a Manifestation of an Increasingly Violent Society

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

Many opponents of MMA claim they are due to safety concerns for the fighters. I frankly don’t give a crap. Oh sure, as a Christian, I don’t want anyone to be hurt, but as a freedom loving conservative, it’s their right to be as moronic as they wish and beat the crap out of each other for profit and the amusement of the masses.

As an aside, in my opinion as a martial artist, calling this “sport,” Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is an affront to the discipline and dedication of martial arts. Training oneself in some aspects of various styles of martial arts for the sole purpose of beating the hell of another is decidedly not martial arts. But, as I said, that’s just my opinion.

Many have called them modern day Gladiators, but it’s much worse than that. In the early days of gladiatorial contests, none of the fighters had a choice to “compete.” They weren’t Romans. They were men captured from conquered territories, or slaves or indentured servants. These men were conscripted into Gladiator schools and trained to fight. They didn’t have a choice.

It wasn’t until later, as the spectacle grew in popularity, that free men and even women volunteered, due to the lure of fame and fortune. Some from Rome’s upper crust political class tried their hands, drawn by the allure of the roaring and fawning crowds. Even a few Roman Emperors entered the ring. Although their matches resembled a fixed WWE match rather than a real battle. read more

Lockheed Martin has taken the wraps off its vision for a future manned lunar lander at International Astronautical Congress (IAC) in Bremen, Germany. The concept spacecraft is designed to show how a reusable lander, in conjunction with NASA’s planned lunar Gateway deep-space orbital outpost, can support an indefinite human presence on the Moon as well as providing valuable experience for the first manned missions to Mars.

It’s been almost half a century since the last astronauts set foot on the Moon and with new US plans committing NASA to a program of sustained human exploration and exploitation of deep space, returning to the lunar surface will involve much more than simply taking up where Apollo left off. Not only has technology advanced considerably since the 1960s, but making more than temporary and sporadic visits to the Moon and beyond requires a whole new approach to space exploration. read more
