Around the Internet in a New York hour….

I often get lost in the Web, because the oddities of human nature fascinate me. For example, we have these hairy stockings.

hairy stockings

Now, you might think. WOW, what a cool Halloween costume. Or possibly you might be thinking “Now I can finally get the attention of the Yeti next door.” But the purpose here, of these stockings, is to deter rape. Or so they say. Will it work? I’m quite unsure. But they are intriguing.

s-SEQUESTRATION-JULY-4-largeTHE FOURTH OF JULY will be a little more quiet this year, as federal employees are furloughed and military bases are cancelling fireworks celebrations. I think it’s a little sad that they are furloughing civilian employees but not the damn legislators who got us in this mess to begin with, but the cancellation of fireworks is no skin off my noise. Most veterans who served in any active combat cannot handle fireworks. It sets off their PTSD. At my house, Birdman and Stormy will be hiding under the bed. I hope he cleans out the dustbunnies first. I think there are some in there the size of the Yetis I mentioned before….

AND HERE is a story of unconditional love, learned a bit too late and with an unbelievable price tag. WE LOVE YOU JUST BECAUSE YOU BREATHE. 

 

AND THIS IS FASCINATING and makes you grateful for what you have. Why not? They are. The Hensel twins are conjoined from the waist down.

And that really was only about 10 minutes, I think.
