Well, at least 27,000 jackasses can be accounted for

We have definitive proof there are at least 27,000 vicious, uneducated, turd polishers in the world. In the wake of the second beheading by fundamentalist Islamic fanatics (yea, yea tautology, I know), Twitter saw 27,000 accounts set up supporting IS. Yup, there are at least that many knuckle draggers who want to live in the dark ages willing to brag about it publicly.

Granted, many of those accounts are duplicates. As fast as they are shut down, they pop back up. But, it still represents a lot of people openly supporting an uneducated, vicious group with no respect for life. Such narrow minded bigotry is staggering.

Another dumb shit who with a gun

This is why some people shouldn't own a gun, let alone be within 100 yards of one:

"Jacob Travis McDaniel, 20, of Noblesville was charged with reckless homicide and pointing a firearm" <--This dumb as a sack of hammers idiot "thought" his gun was unloaded, took it off safety and pulled the trigger. You know what happened next, right? A 16 year old girl was shot through the chest and died.  How many times have we read about this in the last year?  I've lost count. 

 

 

 

 

Ponderings on a hot summer day

At last, a hot day. We certainly aren't setting any records for warmth this summer here in Toronto. On the contrary, it's been down right damp and cold. A curious year all around. The upside to this is for a change, Toronto hasn't been sweltering under a cover of humidity and smog, like past summers. I don't do well in the humidity. Yesterday (and today) was the first heat alert of the summer, and summer is rapidly winding down.  It's supposed to end tonight, with the temperatures dropping to close to 16c overnight. I knew, the moment I broke down bought new short sleeved work shirts, I doomed everyone to a cool summer. Apologies to everyone.

Some new ramblings

Holy Moly I'm back. Like the new site? You better, it took me long enough to set it up.
 
I used Word Press for years and finally gave up on it about 2 years ago. The layoff started off innocently enough,

Catpaw with a pint & a typical bad haircutTime for a new look - the venerable cat on a postage stamp is now retired. As much as I loved him, it was time for a face lift - bad haircut & all.
