Thanks, Anon!

More Good News.

JSW Steel has announced an agreement to purchase Acero Junction facility in Mingo Junction, Ohio. Thanks specifically to the Trump administration economic plan, it is investing upwards of $500 million in the old Ohio steel plant that was built in 1929, instead of constructing a new facility in India.
I'd say he's right.

The world's tallest bridge is in southern France.

Millau Viaduct is the tallest bridge in the world. Constructed in three years, the bridge is an engineering and architectural marvel. At its highest point, the bridge soars 1,125 ft. above ground

Mexico's next president: Flood the US with Mexicans!

It's like he's on Trump's payroll or something.

If I were Trump, I'd put this Mexican's comment in a commercial, then follow that with a plea to build the wall.

Mexican presidential candidate Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) called for mass immigration to the United States during a speech Tuesday declaring it a “human right” for all North Americans.
“And soon, very soon — after the victory of our movement — we will defend all the migrants in the American continent and all the migrants in the world,” Obrador said, adding that immigrants “must leave their towns and find a life in the United States.”
He then declared it as “a human right we will defend,” reports.

I'd bet he'd say the same thing if the traffic were in the other direction, right?

Wait, the guy looks just like Fraser's Dad! Weird!



As an aside, it's incredible that the Mexicans have learned nothing from their neighbor Venezuela.  They're setting themselves up for a complete disaster, and they'll only have themselves to blame when the inevitable happens.

I'll never cease to be amazed by how easily people are seduced by the promise of free everything, because it's a human right, or something, guaranteed by the Universe of Everything Bill of Rights.  It's how the word "Sheeple" came to have meaning.

Almost Perfect

Shave of the Day

PAA Meta Nectar soap, Colorado Razor Designs two band badger brush, C.V. Heljestrand LeDuc Straight, Chiseled Face Cryogen aftershave.

Two and a half passes, great shave, minimal blood.

That Cryogen - use only under adult supervision - that stuff is strong!  My face is still chilling, Woo!

Viva la difference

An Iranian gal takes off the hijab and goes western.  Check out her photo on the ID card hanging from her neck.

Meanwhile, in Kuwait, women line up to vote.

All cultures are not equal.

Wow. Didn't know there were that many trip-planes still airworthy.

They're probably kit planes, but still.

Your Good News of the Day: US Supreme Court rules law enforcement needs a warrant to follow your digital footprints.

Carpenter v. United States is the first case about phone location data that the Supreme Court has ruled on. That makes it a landmark decision regarding how law enforcement agencies can use technology as they build cases. The court heard arguments in the case on Nov. 29.
It's no giant burden to get a warrant, and requiring one surely protects people's rights.  I think this is the direction the country is going in, although I'd prefer that the law be made in Congress rather than by legislating from the bench like this.

Seattle’s cycling community took to social media this week to mourn the death of cyclist S.J. Brooks, who died from a cougar attack near North Bend on Saturday.

Mountain lions got no respect for your virtue signaling.

Brooks, who used the pronoun “they, but whose real pronoun was 'food' ” was at the time riding with Dizzy Izzy Sederbaum, who also suffered injuries but survived, by running faster than S.J. 'Kitty Kibble' Brooks.

When not offering herself - oh 'scuze me, they-self - as an offering to the Wilderness Gods, Brooks was the co-founder of the Seattle chapter of the Friends on Bikes organization, which is dedicated to “fostering a community for women of color who love riding bikes.” According to the Friends on Bikes website, Brooks had been riding bikes since childhood, “crushing down the Shunga Trail” in Kansas.

Brooks was also involved in efforts to make the biking community a more welcoming and safe place for women, trans and nonbinary cyclists of color, as well as a food source for famished cougars.

You really should read the full article the Seattle Times to appreciate the silly, confused and unreal world these folk live in.  It's no wonder that their disconnect with reality led them into danger.  Nature doesn't care how messed up in the head you are.  It's trying to kill you, always. Those that ignore that reality may well meet up with it in an unpleasant manner, as this gal very unfortunately did.

The Munchee, D.J.K.K Brooks.

She looks plump and nourishing.  Love the shirt, but the message is ironic considering.

Tables turned

You can see the turning point, the decision.  "I've had enough of this, Little Tommy, prepare to die."


Gonna be hot today!


Get that rat, kid!

It ate her

When I die, maybe I'll reincarnate as an eagle, and this will be my hunting ground

Interesting, if a bit of a kooky idea. Good vintage aircraft video.
