Have a good weekend, y'all.

Don't blow your digits off, or anything...

(Yes, I am aware that the sloth-astronaut depicted is probably an immigrant.  We are a nation of those, you know.  Hopefully, the sloth's presence in this image doesn't upset any protectionist ideals you may have and diminish the pleasantness of this post's intentions.  It occurs to me that those wolves may also be Canadian, which takes us to healthcare.  You will need that if you blast a finger off, won't you?  The wolves will, if they lose protected status, for sure.  Suddenly this post has gone from a dumb picture to political commentary.  It was just supposed to be a dumb post with an eagle and flag, along with some nonsense.  Sorry about that, my bad.  Anyway, stay safe and cool this weekend.  Oh shit, now I am thinking about the EPA getting gutted in the name of climate change denial.  Goddamnit, it's just everything isn't it?  Just fucked by those fucking fuckers, the whole lot of it.  Damnit man...)

How about some shiny destruction as art?

Seems like that kind of day...

Artist credit.

Yo, look out Buckeye folks...

The Chicago Transit Authority has it out for you, apparently.

A trick my phone has started doing recently is letting me know how long it will take me to get home, during the day...

I mean it has done that for a while, a convenient feature when you are not at home and want to know how long it will take you get there.
You know, like if you commute...

I work from home.

And somehow, my phone says it will take me 23.5 minutes to get here.
To get where I am, the same spot.


Better leave work early, to beat the traffic, I guess.

I bet they would be fun to hang out with at a barbecue...

What is this?

A voice from the right, confirming we are taking a stroll down a shit covered sidewalk?

Trump has been ruled by compulsions, obsessions and vindictiveness, expressed nearly daily on Twitter. He has demonstrated an egotism that borders on solipsism. His political skills as president have been close to nonexistent. His White House is divided, incompetent and chaotic, and key administration jobs remain unfilled. His legislative agenda has gone nowhere. He has told constant, childish, refuted, uncorrected lies, and demanded and habituated deception among his underlings. He has humiliated and undercut his staff while requiring and rewarding flattery. He has promoted self-serving conspiracy theories. He has displayed pathetic, even frightening, ignorance on policy matters foreign and domestic. He has inflicted his ethically challenged associates on the nation. He is dead to the poetry of language and to the nobility of the political enterprise, viewing politics as conquest rather than as service.

Full piece/prose found here.

Written by one of W's top guys, so the WaPo fake news bit struggles to stick.

Unless this dude was "gotten" by the shape shifting lizard lib's, who run the pizzagate place...

Because, you know, that is the world we live in now.

Here is a startling bit, regarding clime change-

Climate Central looked at the monthly data using the earlier baseline and found that “if you were born after December 1964, you’ve never experienced a month cooler than average on this planet.”

That is probably not indicative of any trend at all, huh?
Probably should think about that for a minute.

Crap, man...

That is some perspective.

Look at all those fun tools.
So many, I can't even think of projects for all of them...
Though I am sure that would change after having them available for a bit.

Nothing of this scale, but we checked out a space similar in concept, here.
A cool space with especially nice people...
And some cool tools I don't have or have room for.

Why do super hero types where tights?

It really doesn't seem like practical attire for crime fighting/world saving...

Some Apollo era goodness...

Lead with your strengths, they say.

I could write a post on current events, but I would guess you are at saturation with that stuff.

Personally, my response to a news alert on my phone has gone from "I wonder what's happening" to "what the fuck did he do now" and will probably stay that way for a bit...

What do you think the odds are of landing that cleanly?

Did you know Oregon had it's own Badlands?

I didn't really either.
We can just keep it a secret and leave any Badlands notoriety to the Dakota's.

Anyway, this past weekend we took some time to get out and enjoy the area.
You know, before the summer sun starts baking things.
Just a  short hike, well, a three mile hike to check out what is just a few minutes east of here.

I will let this video give you an idea of what things look like...

It's still on the spring side of things here, so the tiny desert flowers were putting on their show.
Really lovely stuff.

The video doesn't deliver on the scent from the juniper trees.
You'll have to imagine that...

It's national doughnut day?

Might have to do something to celebrate that.

I don't even remember the last time I had one...

Might as well break some records while building your space rocket launching plane, huh?

There is more on this thing here, here or really any place covering it.
Every story seems to be based on the same press release...
