  1. Charlie Watts, the long-time drummer for legendary rock band The Rolling Stones, has died at age 80, his publicist said in a statement Tuesday. Watts, who played with The Rolling Stones for more than 50 years, “passed away peacefully in a London hospital surrounded by his family,” according to publicist Bernard Doherty. https://www.forbes.com/sites/jemimamcevoy/2021/08/24/rolling-stones-drummer-charlie-watts-dead-at-80/?sh=47555e0d63d1

    Probably just a coincidence Tom Cruise’s car stolen while filming in Birmingham | Tom Cruise | The Guardian but @acute had new wheels for a day and dresses pretty dapper now, although his suits are a tad short on him, they must have shrunk at the dry cleaner's..

  7. Norm Macdonald, whose laconic delivery of sharp and incisive observations made him one of Saturday Night Live‘s most influential and beloved cast members, died today after a nine-year private battle with cancer. He was 61. I always thought he was the funniest Weekend Update person. Hilarious when he was on Letterman. Wow! Sad when talent goes. https://www.msn.com/en-ca/entertainment/tv/news/norm-macdonald-dies-influential-comedian-and-former-snl-weekend-update-anchor-was-61/ar-AAOrnmK?ocid=hplocalnews&li=AAggFp5

    Funny story: I was sitting on the couch a bit ago with the critters, playing with my emergency hand crank/solar power radio. It gets weather band, am/fm/sw1/sw2 bands. I decided to tune into different stations across the bands just to see what i could pick up from inside my house. When i started scrolling through the FM band, i picked up a song that i recognized as a new song I came across about 2 weeks ago. For those that visit the "music you are listening to" thread on here, it is easy to notice that i do not listen to main stream music, so for me to find a song I listen to on the FM band, it was kinda shocking. I was happily listening along when it dawned on me, what was actually going on. In my car I have an FM transmitter that plays music from a thumb drive ( i typically change the songs every week or so). I always pull out the transmitter when i turn the car off , but my son drove the car last and forgotten to do so, with it being plugged into a lighter jack it transmits constantly. The FM station I had tuned to was the station that my transmitter was sending on. I had a good laugh at myself

    So my vacation to Avignon was awesome. I also went to Arles for a day and saw the little colosseum there (the stone it's made of has fossilized sea shells in it!) But my one major complain is that there was no dancing on the Pont Saint-Benezet (the famous Pont d'Avignon) I'm currently trying to get my money back on grounds of false advertisement (j/k)
  22. An enormous alligator is suspected of killing a man in Louisiana, according to news reports. Officials from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries recently captured the alligator around the neighborhood of Avery Estates, not far from where 71-year-old Timothy Satterlee Sr. went missing on Aug. 30, the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office wrote on its Facebook page. The 12-foot-long (3.7 meters), 504-pound (229 kilograms) alligator had "what appears to be human remains inside its stomach," according to the post. How common are such tragic alligator attacks? https://www.livescience.com/how-common-are-alligator-attacks

  27. “Nothing could serve the Republicans better than to have the Democrats become a mirror of the GOP. To do so is bad for Biden, for the last remaining sane major party in American politics and for the habits of democratic citizenship.” After almost 5 years of accusing Trump of everything from the most heinous acts down to silliest of infractions, the Democrats are acting like they are the sane ones with moral superiority? And what is the fulcrum on which they have chosen to demonstrate this unequal balance of sanity and personal responsibility that they deem themselves above the Republicans? The ****-show in Afghanistan that even many Democrats and partisan political pundits acknowledge that the buck stops with Joe. Nothing like claiming the high-road for surrendering to an inescapable truth after trying to blame Trump again.

    Bob has been in a relationship with Martha for 18 months. Bob works in the meat and poultry isle at Tesco's whilst Martha is a police officer. Bob has been wanting to propose marriage to Martha for ages. One lunchtime on his day off, Bob finds out where Martha is and then decides to drive their to pop the question. He spots her with another police officer and hits the horn before parking up right next to them. Martha's delight is obvious as Bob jumps of the car with a bunch of daffodils. He falls on one knee, asks the question and she accepts. Martha's partner, Nancy, congratulates them both before offering Bob a hug. Nancy then detects alcohol on his breath, Martha looks shocked and demands that Bob takes a breath test. Martha then realises that Bob was driving his mates car. Nancy and Martha then caution Bob before charging him with drink driving and driving a vehicle without valid insurance. Martha thanks Nancy for helping her dodge a bullet there with a potential and very shady criminal. Bob ends up demoted at Tesco's to Ice Placer(second class) on the fresh fish counter, but he does eventually learn to smile again. That was another heart warming Tesco's, story

  34. A group of paleo-anthropological artists at Kennis & Kennis Reconstructions have put their skills to good use—reconstructing the face of Krijn, the earliest known Neanderthal living in what was once Doggerland. The results have been included in Rijksmuseum van Oudheden, a Dutch national museum dedicated to exhibiting material from the antiquities. Krijn is special for another reason. He is the first hominin from the Pleistocene ever found under seawater. A fragment of his skull that included parts of his brow was found in material sucked from the bottom of the North Sea off the coast of the Netherlands in 2001 in an area that was once part of Doggerland. Prior study of the skull fragment showed that Krijn lived approximately 50,000 to 70,000 years ago. Researchers also found that he fed mostly on meat, though he did also eat seafood on occasion. He has been described as likely having a strong, sturdy build, typical of a young male Neanderthal. https://phys.org/news/2021-09-krijn-netherland-oldest-neanderthal.html

    It just amazing that I win a $50.00 gift card to Costco everyday. We do you have one in our area so I will just put these in the many lotteries that I win weekly or the inheritance from relatives I’ve never met that live in foreign countries…
  39. What really made me laugh is a centre-left ex-PM (Tony Blair) saying Biden is an imbecile. Thats coming from your own side Sleepy Joe haha. It has now come out us Brits were desperately calling around NATO to try and put together a force to take over from the Americans, but the shameful French and Germans said no. Calls going out for UK to double its military budget so that we can do it on our own. Britain will once again save the free world!!!
  40. Yes to both. But we were celebrating Yule before the Romans brought us rumors of baby Jesus; whose birth fits conveniently in the pagan calendar. . Weather was cold, farmers and herders were in their houses, hunters ventured out occasionally. But the days were beginning to get longer, Spring would come and before the hard work of survival had to begin again, there was time for family, festivity, and gratitude. We might try remembering that until the batteries show up.

  42. When a keen diver from Northumberland in England bumped into a grey seal who seemed in need of a hug, he embraced it, and shared the wonderful moment to Twitter on August 9. Ben Burville, a scuba diver who works as a doctor in the coastal town of Amble by day, has built up a rapport with seals in the area after nearly 20 years diving among them. https://uk.news.yahoo.com/hug-diver-grey-seal-share-132424106.html

  45. Excavations at a 6,000-year-old cemetery in Transylvania have uncovered the remains of people buried with urns placed over their skulls or feet, reports Romanian news outlet Gherla Info. Archaeologists conducted the dig ahead of a planned construction project in the city of Cluj-Napoca in northwest Romania. So far, the team has been unable to determine what the urns once held, but as Ben Turner reports for Live Science, it’s likely they contained food or drink intended for the nourishment of the dead in the afterlife. In addition to the graves, the researchers found a pit used to store food that was later repurposed as a landfill. An animal skull, possibly from a cow, as well as ceramic fragments that may offer clues to the settlement’s pottery-making technology, was discovered nearby. https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/neolithic-skeletons-show-odd-burial-practice-transylvania-180978556/ https://www.livescience.com/transylvanian-urns-offerings.html

    I'm watching an American show called 'It Takes A Killer'. This one's about a serial killer in "Peterburrow, England". That's five hours south of Eadinburrow, Scotland.
  47. Why don't you give it a rest? All you have proven is that you will stand by fraudsters no matter how exposed they become. Nobody cares what you think. A few generous posters have offered you the benefit of the doubt only to find that you're not gullible, your motives are nefarious and disrespectful. There is no good reason to believe the names you have posted are those of actual scientists. More likely they are promoting fraud for personal gain. If anything, they should be charged and at least heavily fined for what they are doing.
