I took this picture this morning.
I was outside, freezing my fingers, at 7:30 waiting for the sunrise. This was one of the pictures I took.
When I looked at it enlarged, the cloud formation made it look like a lake of Fire.
Well it did to me.
It occurred to me that you might not realize that those are actually clouds.
>Throw this little piggy down on the floor and it squishes flat. Then it regains its original shape, just like in the Terminator movies.
It looks like we might have good viewage here in the Spud State.
Give it a try, you’ll be glad you did.
“Many meteor showers tend to disappoint, but the annual Geminid shower is relatively reliable. And this year’s version, which peaks tonight, is expected to be a great one. Meteors could start showing up anytime after dark this evening, Dec. 13, low on the eastern horizon. A better display should begin after 10 p.m. or so, when the constellation Gemini, from which the meteors emanate, rises higher into the Eastern sky. • Click here to visit FOXNews.com’s Space Center. By 2 a.m. Friday, Dec. 14, Gemini is directly overhead, and meteors will streak outward in all directions like spokes on a wheel, weather permitting. Forecasters predict one or two shooting stars per minute during the peak hours.”
>Heck, I missed it… Wait, I’m a Time Traveler, I’ll just go back!
“This is genius! Saturday, December 8th has been declared ‘Pretend to be a Time Traveler Day.’ The whole idea is to pretend for the day that you are a traveler from a different time – except that, of course, you can’t actually *tell* people you’re a time traveler, because they’ll think you’re crazy. There are, of course, options as to how a traveler from a certain other time might act:”
Hmmmm, this could be fun.
…- If you go the “prisoner who’s escaped the future” try shaving your head and putting a barcode on the back of your neck. Then stagger around and stare at the sky, as if you’ve never seen it before.
– Walk up to random people and say “WHAT YEAR IS THIS?” and when they tell you, get quiet and then say “Then there’s still time!” and run off.
– Stand in front of a statue (any statue, really), fall to your knees, and yell “NOOOOOOOOO”
>Well, it’s really not the eating, it’s the parking.
I can totally understand the problem. People park in the McDonald’s lot and leave their car there for a couple of hours so they can go shopping.
Inconvenient parking is one reason why we don’t live in a big city. There is *always* lots of free parking at Wal*Mart.

>I heard from another source that the woman was Not a guard, merely a lawfully armed private citizen.
>Mrs. Geezer and I paid to see his show in Las Vegas in the 70’s. I can’t remember if he even showed up. I do remember there was a riot.
>People are getting shot in Malls and at Church?
What’s this world coming to??
>Wow, this pretty much sucks. They sell Apple products at reasonable prices and they provide a meeting place for our club.
>Stephen Hunter is one of my favorite writers. He has a scathing review of Golden Compass. He compares two actresses named Dakota.
I blame the Mayor of Mitchieville.
“Scientists have found a new threat to the planet: Canadian beer drinkers. The government-commissioned study says the old, inefficient ‘beer fridges’ that one in three Canadian households use to store their Molson and Labatt’s contribute significantly to global warming by guzzling gas- and coal-fired electricity. ‘People need to understand the impact of their lifestyles,’ British environmental consultant Joanna Yarrow tells New Scientist magazine. ‘Clearly the environmental implications of having a frivolous luxury like a beer fridge are not hitting home. This research helps inform people — let’s hope it has an effect.'”
>It’s got German narration but you’ll enjoy it anyway.
