Are You a Perv?

Another friend of mine sent me this - what can I say, half my friend's minds are in the gutter and the others are on their way down! ANyway, it helps if you make the picture bigger.



You saw a couple in an intimate pose, right?

Interestingly, research has shown that young children cannot identify the intimate couple because they do not have prior memory associated with such a scenario. What they will see, however, is the nine dolphins in the picture!

So, I guess we've already proven you're not a young innocent child.

Now, if it's hard for you to find the dolphins within 6 seconds, your mind SO corrupted that YOU probably need help!

OK, here's help: Look at the space between her right arm and her head, the tail is on her neck, follow it up. Look at her left hip, follow the shaded part down, it's another one, and on his shoulder..

OH, SURE , you see them NOW - PERVERT!

Dog Doo II

OK - some of you folks already know I have a Golden Retriever.

What you don't know is it's probably the only Golden Retriever in the world that doesn't actually "RETRIEVE" anything!

So, ol' Ace, retired you know, with all this time on his hands, decides he's gonna teach his old dog a new trick - retrieving.

But after months and months of trying, all I can get the damn dog to do is come to me when I PICK UP the paper, then, open its mouth and grab the paper from my hand and take it into the house.

Well, it's better than nothing right?

So, we've been doing this for a few weeks now. The dog actually looks forward to going out into the front yard and waiting for me to hand her the morning paper so that she can carry it into the house and hand it back to me.

Now - some further background - my dog does her business - pooping, peeing, throwing up, etc. - in our backyard. Before I take her anywhere, I always send her in the backyard first, so, you know, I don't have to manicure my neighbor's yard. Right?

OK - so today we go out the front door, after she's supposedly done her business in the backyard, to pick up the morning paper.

I pick up the paper, I call for the dog. Hmmmm - she's busy peeing on my front yard. Well, that's ok, it's only pee. I call her again, slap the paper against my thigh, and she comes running and snaps the paper out of my hands.

But then, INSTEAD OF HEADING FOR THE FRONT DOOR, she goes back onto the front lawn, doing her little "circling,circling, circling, gee, I gotta take a dump, dance".

Then to my horror, and despite my screaming "STOP, NO, WAIT, STOP, NO!!!!!!!," she drops the paper, takes 4 more steps forward, then proceeds to drop a massive, steaming load of dog doo on, not my lawn, BUT MY MORNING NEWSPAPER!!!!!!!!!!!

Geezuz - I know she did that on purpose!


A friend sent me the following link. I don't usually bother to pass these on, but, this one was kinda cool (plus, it has music from one of my favorite films - let me know if you know which one).

Anyway, if ya got a few minutes, it's worth watching:

The Cost of the War in Iraq - What else could have been done with the money?

OK - time to stir things up - right wingers vs lefties - let's see what trouble I can cause. Things have been pretty boring lately.

I found this really interesting site on the net:

It provides a continuous, running estimate of the money being spent on the war in iraq. It also shows the cost broken down locally, as well as providing a tool that shows upon what else the money could have been spent, e.g., elementary school teachers, police, etc.

Here is a sample, just for Bakersfield, CA:

Taxpayers in Bakersfield, California will pay $409.1 million for total Iraq war spending approved to date. For the same amount of money, the following could have been provided:
168,368 People with Health Care for One Year OR
728,863 Homes with Renewable Electricity for One Year OR
7,308 Public Safety Officers for One year OR
5,779 Music and Arts Teachers for One Year OR
61,477 Scholarships for University Students for One Year OR
1,224 Affordable Housing Units OR
152,914 Children with Health Care for One Year OR
48,932 Head Start Places for Children for One Year OR
5,875 Elementary School Teachers for One Year OR
5,167 Port Container Inspectors for One year
