Who Woulda Thunk? 0

Some automated lady has been kind enough to leave a message on my machine–several messages, in fact–informing me that my 14-year-old pick-up with 135 thousand miles on it (and still running just fine thank you) is out of warranty.

Whatever shall I do?

How Now, Brown Cow? 0

Vance Lehmkuhl wonders why Americans are so ignorant about cows and milk. Here’s a bit:

It was great fun to learn recently that 7 percent of U.S. adults — more than the population of Pennsylvania! — say they believe chocolate milk comes from brown cows.

It’s one data point in a survey the Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy conducted among 1,000 American adults testing folks’ knowledge of agribusiness. But the dairy-backed survey skipped a few other basic questions people might have trouble answering.

My answer is that, thanks primarily to “social” media, ignorance and a willingness to believe anything they see on a computer screen when they wouldn’t believe the same thing in print seems to have become a default setting. Follow the link for his answer.

Oh, please.

The organizers between Salt Lake Comic Con and San Diego ComicCon International (SLCC) are locked in a legal dispute over what events have the right to call themselves a “comic con.”

Noz on the Trumpling of NATO:

Since the debates with Clinton it has been clear that Trump thinks that NATO is some kind of U.S.-led protection racket.

Droning On 0

Boys and their toys.

Elliot Roth enjoys an expansive view of the city from the 18th floor of his condo in uptown Charlotte. He just didn’t expect someone to be peeping into his home from that height.

But that’s what he said happened one early evening in mid-March, when he spotted a drone hovering outside his window in the Skye condos on South Caldwell Street. He said he believes the drone spotted him watching it, took off then returned soon after, slowly going up the side of the building and peering at windows.

“It’s creepy that someone’s looking in your window,” Roth said. “You figure you’re 18 stories up no one’s going to be watching you, right?”

“Honest, Occifer, it looked like my airport.”

Delta Flight 2845 from Minneapolis landed July 7 at Ellsworth Air Force Base, about 6 miles (10 kilometers) northwest of the intended destination, Rapid City Regional Airport. The flight crew misidentified the runway due to excess altitude and failure to use all the navigation information available to them, according to the National Transportation Safety Board’s final report. The report, adopted May 26, was first reported by the Rapid City Journal on Tuesday.
