Brownie Surprise

69 year old film developed, and guess what?
Apparent Hoax
Boned Jello
Some dude came into possession of this antique Kodak Brownie camera.  It had been stored in the  footlocker of an unidentified sailor on the USS QUAPAW ATF-11O.   There was a roll of exposed film inside, from 69 years ago as it turned out.  December 7th, 1941.  Here's a few of the pictures; you can see the rest here (careful - there's some whack soundtrak that plays).  It's incredible that the film could be developed, let alone produce pictures of this quality.

The  Jap Zero silhouette confirms that this is the plane shown, not surprisingly.  Gives me chills.

Of the seven battleships anchored at Pearl, only the Nevada, Tennessee, and Maryland were not sunk or destroyed, so I'll guess this is one of them. Thanks to Tom Mann for the tip.

Soemthing electric

The Electric Fence and the Mower

Time stood still.

The first thing I notice is my pecker trying to climb up the front side of my body. My ears curled downwards and I could feel the lawnmower
ignition firing in the backside of my brain. Every time that Briggs & Stratton rolled over, I could feel the spark in my head. I was
literally at one with the engine.

It seems as though the fence charger and the piece of **** lawnmower were fighting over who would control my electrical impulses.

Don M sent me this extremely well written first-hand account of a dentist who got some wires crossed.  Just wonderful.   Thanks Don. [I found it on the web, HERE]

"Republicans appear increasingly to have concluded that poking at the allegation that Obama is a Muslim is less likely to blow up in their faces than they used to think. 

This is a tweet from the RNC's new-media director, Todd Herman.

UPDATE: Maybe not: The tweet is down, and the RNC says Obama's religion is a non-issue."  Ben Smith, Journo-Lister

Todd Herma Twitter

First off, Todd Herman's Twitter, "Is Barack Obama among the 20% who think he's Muslim?" was witty, pithy,  and harmless (i am laughing here).  Yesterday I saw that the DNCC (or DNC?) is running campaign videos that blame Bush for everything; that's how desperate they are.  Now this even more pathetic clarion call (MSNBC's Newsvine picked up this non-story) has the Obamaniacs flitting about like cockroaches on a sugar cube.  This was the top listed comment when I was there.

Can't wait to hear the RNC try to 'splain' this one away Mark! ;0)

Republicans don't see any harm by furthering the false Obama-is-a-Muslim story.

Just goes to show you... these right wing nitwits will stop at NOTHING with their attempt to regain POWER!

Even if it means OUTRIGHT lying!

We'll see how many of the right wing 'gofers' here at FR will have the actual b@lls to stand up and say that President Obama is NOT a Muslim!

If memory serves me right... there was only (1) out of hundreds who showed the courage!

What are the odds that Keith Olbermann also runs with this *gasp* scandal tonight? Or is he too one of the 20% who think Barry is an Imam?


China's massive traffic
jam could last for weeks

You can't get more government than China, ahem.
Still, in some respects, like understanding how taxes stifle an  economy, China's communist masters seem much further advanced than our own tyro commie bastids.   But, I digress.

T he traffic jam started Aug. 14 on a stretch of the Beijing-Zhangjiakou highway. That section has frequently been congested, especially after large coalfields were discovered in Inner Mongolia, Zhang said. Traffic volume has increased 40 percent 

Bumper-to-bumper gridlock spanning for 60 miles (100 kilometers) with cars moving little more than a half-mile (one kilometer) a day at one point has improved since this weekend, said Zhang Minghai, director of Zhangjiakou city's Traffic Management Bureau general office.

Drivers stranded in the gridlock in the Inner Mongolia region and Hebei province, headed toward Beijing, passed the time sleeping, walking around, or playing cards and chess. Local villagers were doing brisk business selling instant noodles, boxed lunches and snacks, weaving between the parked trucks on bicycles. [China's massive traffic jam could last for weeks]

There'd be NOBAMA

O that we were as cautious about people we elect as these pups instinctively are about that piece of bread that doesn't belong there ...

There'd be NOBAMA

You know how some people go la-la-la-ing?

Say Amen

We are gathered here today ...

While I have antipathy for abortionists, the victory here transcends single issues.  Cuccinelli has delivered yet another blow in defense of the beleaguered Amendment X of the  United States Constitution, and against the federal usurper.  Boola-boola!

What's so hard?  Answers abound!

Any movement, which adherents employ legerdemain or black lies to gain advantage,  is to be feared and rejected; its baseness held self evident.  The practitioner of these deceits is branded "  L,"  and excluded by reasonable men from future debate.  Rodger's Razor
