I Put a Spell on You

Hey, are the Maldives still with us? Let’s see (from the Spectator):

The IPCC vision is a rise that by the year 2100 may amount to between 30cm and 50cm. This is based on model calculations. Our figure is a 5cm rise, plus or minus 15cm. In a newspaper article, you have suggested that sea levels may rise by between one and eight metres. Those figures, however, do not concur with the physics and known rates of ice melting. So those figures must be dismissed as impossible. (Love it). 

Keep going:

So why the scare-mongering? Could it be because there is money involved? If you inhabit a tiny island and can convince the world that its very existence is under threat because of the polluting policies of the West, the industrialised nations will certainly respond. The money is likely to flow in more quickly than the ocean will rise.

This is the fourth time I have written to you. Unfortunately, I think there is a problem with your email service because so far I have not received an acknowledgement. For this reason, I have decided to write this open letter in the pages of The Spectator. (The Camels have been seasick)

So, Mr President, you and your ministers in the Maldives really don’t need to worry about a future life beneath the waves. You should pass on this message to the people of the Maldives. It is high time to release them from this terrible psychological burden.

Follow da money! Or their new reality.

And yet we are going to waste billions of dollars here in Canada on this fraud.

This just in: Best weekly exercise regimen for weight loss…..DON’T EAT. That’ll do it.

Park Rangers solve mystery in the woods. Yes Virginia Bears do shit in the woods!

Winterpeg and Taranta are the only Canadian Teams in the NHL Playoffs this year? Good gawd almighty. Who or what is a Winterpeg and Taranta? – let’s organize the parade now!

3 women out to get TRUMP. This latest news fiasco coming to you from the Trump Derangement Syndrome news media such as the Washington Post. I wonder who is paying these women to come forward to press their pillow cases sort of speak. Surely they could ill afford to clean or press their own sheets. That’s for certain.

Top cardiologist boils weight loss down to one thing…………………..DON’T EAT!

Mork and Mindy Pam Dawber on Robin Williams sexual exploits on the TV set:

Dawber also opened up about Williams’ alleged sexual behavior on the show, which helped skyrocket the actor to fame. “I had the grossest things done to me by him. And I never took offense,” she reportedly said. “I mean I was flashed, humped, bumped, grabbed. I think he probably did it to a lot of people … but it was so much fun.” I mean, after all it was the seventies you know.  Bring back the 70s

The #MeToo crowd is all in a tizzy over this one. Some other actresses are coming out to say; Me Too. The same thing happened to me too. And me-ass … as well. At their age – they’re all in their 60s so they may be cougars but they’re not alligators, that’s for sure.

Pics that show how useless the scale is when slimming down:

From SDA: Rafaela Vasquez, 44, was in control of the self-driving Volvo SUV on Sunday … has felony convictions for attempted armed robbery … under her original name Rafael but now identifies as a woman … did not see Elaine Herzberg, 49, until it was too late. No, she or he or zir or zee or zey or zits or titz was putting on zir or zey of zits makeup when the crash occurred….Geesh. Would you take an Uber driverless car when they hire people like Vasquez?

In ancient Rome, a popular form of entertainment was gladiator fights: violent, cruel, and often ended in people’s death – all just for entertainment.

Gladiator games obviously are no longer going on in Rome. So when did they stop? We actually know the exact day: January 1st, A.D. 404.

And it was because of a saint.

Telemachus was an ascetic monk from the east who, upon coming to Rome, was horrified at the cruelty of the gladiator games. Even though Christianity had been made the official religion of Rome by Emperor Theodosius in A.D. 380, the games had continued.

According to the writings of the 5th century bishop Theodoret of Cyrus, Telemachus ran into the middle of the gladiator games and tried to physically stop the gladiators from fighting. The spectators were so upset that they stoned him to death (The leafs fans should be so lucky!). The Emperor Honorius was so disturbed by the murder of the holy monk that he banned the gladiator games from that day forward. They were never resumed – that was that.

And that was the beginning of tele-marketing. I kid you not!….Groan.

This headline gave me some grave concern: “Last Male Dies in Kenya” “Who’s next?” I thought, rather in a panic because of my maleness. I opened the article only to find out that they were referring to a white rhino. Whew. Then someone told me it had everything to do with white privilege. I grew concerned again!

Love this. Thanks to Maggie’s Farm:

Kinda puts the Irish spell on you.

Which brings me to the song for today. I love Creedence’s cover – from Woodstock 1969.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.
