Joke of the Day

The patient demanded, “Doc, I just must have a liver transplant, a kidney transplant, a cornea transplant, a lung transplant, and a heart transplant.”

“WHAT?” yelled the doctor. “Tell me, exactly why you think you need all these transplants?”

“Well,” explained the patient, “my boss told me that I needed to get reorganized.”

Get it?! Re …. Organ … ized!

Get Hit by a Bus – Died of Covid-19

Okay, that’s ridiculous you say? Well, it’s not as far fetched as you may think.

I’ve been half-joking about this for over a month – that it doesn’t matter what a person dies from, it will somehow be attributed to coronavirus.

Then I see this from the Blaze:

Washington health official says state counted some gunshot victims as COVID-19 deaths

“We currently do have some deaths that are being reported that are clearly from other causes.”

A Washington health official admitted that the state counted some deaths from causes other than coronavirus, including victims of gunshot wounds, as part of the COVID-19 death toll.

The Washington Department of Health held a virtual meeting Thursday with reporters. During the press briefing, a Washington health official said that some gunshot victims had been counted as COVID-19 deaths. read more

Compact Carry Fire Pit

The Firekorf packs tiny but supports a sizable blaze
The Firekorf packs tiny but supports a sizable blaze
By Arnaud

There’s nothing wrong with the classic rock fire ring, but building one isn’t always possible, legal or ethical. So with the growth of a more “camp anywhere” culture spurred on by overlanding and #vanlife, we’ve seen a growth in the number of portable, collapsible fire pits out there. The new Firekorf from Belgium’s By Arnaud is lighter and more collapsible than average, relying on four folding legs and a mesh basket to pack small but fire up big. An available cooking grate and spit turn it into a go-anywhere wood-fire cooker. read more

“Yikes” – Biden’s was not a Perfect Conversation

from the American Spectator:

The Telephone Bill Comes for Sundown Joe

You’ve likely never heard of Andriy Derkach, and that’s all right. If the Democrat Party and their media allies get their way, you’ll never hear of him again.

But Derkach, a former Ukrainian intelligence officer trained in Moscow and a member of the Ukrainian Parliament aligned with the party of Russia-friendly former leader Viktor Yanukovych, dropped a major bombshell Tuesday in a press conference in Kiev, releasing audiotapes of phone calls which seem very much like they include conversations between another Ukrainian leader, Petro Poroshenko, and former Secretary of State John Kerry and Vice President Joe Biden in 2016.

Those audiotapes, which Derkach says he received from “investigative journalists” — it’s OK to call his sources spies — do not present, to put it kindly, Biden in a good light. The material they contain is apparently the same stuff that Rudy Giuliani was so fired up about after he made his trip to Ukraine late last year; Derkach was one of the people Giuliani met with. read more

Air Jordons Smash Auction Records

The1985 Air Jordan 1 Vintage Originals were produced for Jordan in the white, black and red of his Chicago Bulls, and were the colourway he wore most often on court. In 1984, Nike gave Jordan a signature line of shoes and clothes – a crucial, unprecedented move to entice Michael Jordan to sign with Nike. Produced between February to April 1985, Jordan wore this pair of Air Jordan 1s during an early, pivotal point of his career, catalysing an unprecedented sales spike and paving the way for Scottie Pippen, Penny Hardaway, Charles Barkley, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant and LeBron James to have their own signature shoes … and ultimately for the birth of sneaker culture.

Green Activists Never Take a Break

Not even during a pandemic, do the enviro-weenies take a break. Nothing will stand in the way of seeing their dream of 100% emission free energy. And after they’ve achieved that, they can purchase the bridge in Brooklyn I have for sale.

from the American Thinker:

Clean Energy Via Legislative Diktat

For those enamored by the clean electric-car, smoke-and-mirrors “emission elsewhere scheme” comes the recently enacted “Virginia Clean Economy Act”, which includes one of the largest energy storage targets in the country at 2.4 GW by 2035, and prompts state regulators to craft a carbon dioxide cap and trade program that meets the objectives of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI). read more
