And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
I'm intrigued as to how the mind works in such people.ReplyDelete
Or is it not working at all?
They're young ladies and very likely college educated where an "OK" hand gesture causes them to feel threatened by a white supremist. Oh yea, they vote too.Delete
Assumes facts not in evidence.
I wonder how many times you say "oh no!" out loud before the first bounce?ReplyDelete
What you don't see is the long line of people just outside of the frame, waiting for their turn to get that same picture.ReplyDelete
Nature is too accessible. That's why my trips to Yosemite are not to the valley. People balancing on rocks hanging thousands of feet above the valley floor. Crowds surrounding a cub bear and pooh-poohing my concern about momma bear. People leaning out over the void to get a selfie.ReplyDelete
I’ve seen similar photos where the “ledge” is only 6 feet off the ground. It’s all about the perspective.ReplyDelete
I'm pretty sure I know exactly where this was taken and that's not the case here. They're looking at a certain fatal fall if they slip.Delete
Be curious to see what one little bumble bee would do to the serenity of the scene.ReplyDelete

Couple years back took a trip to the Grand Canyon Skywalk. Glass walkway that goes out over the canyon with a 4000 foot drop. I'm afraid of heights but I sucked it up and did it. The rest of the area around the tourist trap is just the edge of the canyon. No guard rail or fence, no nothing. Mis-step and you're history. What's my wife do? Walks right up to the edge and sits down just like the picture. I start talking to the people near us that, "hey, look, I'm no where near her and I don't want to be featured on Investigation Discovery channel". Woman has no fear.ReplyDelete
There is a spot on the Grand Canyon south rim walk where there is an outcrop that sticks out from the edge 3 or 4 feet, can't be more than 5 foot wide, you can get a good view out there.ReplyDelete
A little ways up, the trail turns and you can look over and see that small outcrop, there is nothing under it. It's just a small piece sticking out that has not fallen yet.
They start telling jokes. Both break out in uncontrolled laughter. They bump shoulders. They slide they scream. Now scan to the bottom of cliff. Two body have entered the Twilight Zone.ReplyDelete
Are those two too young to have seen a Wile E. Coyote cliff drop?ReplyDelete
And Darwin licks his chops, while Gravity, smiling, pushes up his sleeves...ReplyDelete
