Reality is Stranger Than Fiction

Things can get pretty silly without making up any of it. Check it out…

If a dog has two noses, does it smell twice as bad?

Mexico’s Santa Muerte (Saint Death) gets a facelift. Um… right.

What’s next? Cops wearing Hello Kitty armbands? Oh, never mind.

Hey Family Man, this might be a drastic cure for migraines.

In some happier news, SCO lost the Unix rights to Novell. This should put the final nail in the coffin of SCO’s (Microsoft-funded) anti-Linux crusade.


  1. Hiya FAR.

    I think the dog looks pretty cool. It can't look worse than George does. :)

    The drastic cure, don't think so. After bypass surgery and all the other stuff they've done, if I had a hole there, I hope they would have found it. At least I would hope so.

  2. Wow, you've had bypass? Yeesh! Yeah, I suppose they've MRI'ed you pretty thoroughly over the years. In a way, I was hoping for a quick & easy cure for you though. :-)

    George ain't that ugly. I've seen a miniature Oriental bulldog that about put me on the ground with laughter… now that was ugly. Oh, you know why bulldogs have flat noses, right? They chase parked cars.

  3. Yep had a bypass in 03 which came as a complete surprise to me after the pain medicine haze wore off. All I know is I don't want to go through it again.

    Funny you should mention a Bulldog. I've always wanted an English Bulldog. Not that they are cute, but I figure if I got one then George wouldn't feel like the ugly duckling.

  4. Oh, FamilyMan -- A surprise By-Pass? That must have been a horrible awakening!

    And on the odd news side:

    For the motorcyclists out there (did I ever mention that we've got 6 motorcycles in our garage & each of the boys have two at their houses and we've got an uncounted number of motor-scooters. So this story doesn't please ME at all):

    Japanese Biker Unknowingly Loses Leg, Continues Ride

  5. Hi all.

    That dog is just plain scary. As to the armbands, the next batch will depict SpongeBob Squarepants.

  6. LOL ... love the caption under the dog's photo:

    Xingu is said to be intelligent and fond of salty biscuits

    ... salty biscuits no less ...

  7. FM... not just a bypass, but an emergency bypass?? First you know what a snowmobile crossing and ice fishing is, and now this. Quite the depth of experience you've got there, and I'm sure you would have been happier not having some of them.

    KB, I saw that article shortly after posting. Gruesome… but I've always said the worst injuries are the ones you don't notice. I had an impromptu ride this morning on my nephew's crotch rocket, and I'll be writing about that shortly.

    Boran: ugly, yes. Scary, meh. Unless you were on the lam and had one tracking you…

    Olivia, I think "salty biscuits" is British for "saltine cracker." That's one of the fun parts of getting your news from the Beeb.


Comments are welcome, and they don't have to be complimentary. I delete spam on sight, but that's pretty much it for moderation. Long off-topic rants or unconstructive flamage are also candidates for deletion but I haven’t seen any of that so far.

I have comment moderation on for posts over a week old, but that’s so I’ll see them.
