Now that's out of the way and we can stop laughing at the one guy who convinced a lot of folks that he was the only person that knew the unknowable. ("No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father." Matthew 24:36 NIV)
As for myself, had the End Times arrived I would have either been off to paradise (hopefully) or....been spending whatever was left of this earthly existence burying and cremating little piles of clothes and shoes. Hmmmm...I probably would have had to readjust the General Price List and planned a retirement party for the embalmer.
So what else has been going on?
The fad of Planking keeps the Comedy Gold coming.
Simon Hallam's pet fish planking on his hand.
Planking is back in the news. I guess enough idiots haven't killed or gravely injured themselves yet to stop this fad dead in its tracks (tee hee). A 20 year old Aussie dude fell off the boot (I think that's the trunk in American talk) of a moving car and is now hospitalized in an induced coma. Simon Hallam, who according to the story is a plasterer by trade has shown that you don't have to be plastered to do something this stupid. Just be an Australian plasterer. Charges are pending against the driver. Australia seems to be the hotbed of this mindless idiocy. I think I heard once that they drink a lot there. What's next? Planking on the back of a Great White Shark? Planking on the wing of a jumbo jet during take-off? The possibilities are endless.
"Bloodshot Eyes Crying in the Rain"
The Red Headed Stranger getting ready to study
the many issues on his ballot pamphlet.
Former New Mexico Governor, Gary Johnson, has garnered the coveted Willie Nelson presidential endorsement. Johnson who is a Republican with strong libertarian leanings is a drug legalization advocate. Willie, is a lifelong pot and shroom enthusiast so this is a case of politician/constituent synchronicity. Wait a minute...hold the phone...this just in from the Nelson camp.
