This is just horrible. First off…for a child of maybe 10 years old be getting a tattoo is just downright alarming. Sure he was probably enthused and pumped up at the time, but I highly doubt he realizes the lifetime implication of it. All of the ethical questions aside…there is also the question of sanity involved with the choice of tattoo.
I mean if I were to have my child inked I would make sure that it was at least something that would stand the test of time…no the fleeting (and in my eyes utterly idiot) likeness of Master Shake and Frylock of Aqua Teen Hunger Force. I can only imagine this little guy 15 years down the road trying to explain this to his girlfriend…”Yeah, about that, my dad actually gave me that tattoo way back in 2010.” And the sad thing is that the girlfriend will probably have NO idea what ATHF even is…cause I doubt an 11-year girl is watching it now.
If you’ve been reading or watching any news recently then I’m sure you’re aware of the wildfires that are taking place in Russia. As of Monday morning they had spread to nearly 500 square miles (about half the size of Rhode Island). The fires are due to extreme heat (upwards of 104 degrees Fahrenheit) in the area and high winds.
The has been a state of emergency declared in 14 areas. So far 28 people have dies as a result with another 2,000 homeless. Roughly 180,000 rescuers are battling the fires and they’ve dropped nearly 3,000 tons of water to douse the flames over the last day. All of this is pretty intense, but nothing showcases it moreso than this video. This is taken inside a truck trying to escape the area. You can see that the men are clearly terrified for their lives. If you’ve ever wondered what hell looked like, this might suffice:
I don’t wish to offend anyone with this picture, but the kid I’m sure means no harm by it. While everyone else is knelt towards Mecca during their Salaat prayer reciting the Iqama, this cute kid (maybe 10-years old or so) is giving the international symbol of peace. Bless his heart.
This is a place that I’d love to visit. Only problem is that it’s in Puerto Vallarta…I still think it might be worth a trip. They claim they’re the Halfway Inn because they’re halfway between Yelapa and Punta de Mita…clever. Have you ever played the “Tip” game? I think that this might be appropriate here.
This is what I use to keep me motivated on my quest to trim down. In this way, no matter how poorly I’ve eaten (it’s not my fault Red Robin has a near endless variety of burgers…and who can resist their bottomless basket of steak fries), I know that at least once a day there is something I’m doing that is loosing me weight.
Per “Lisa’s Wedding” (Season 6, Episode 19 of The Simpsons), lisa weds Hugh St. John Alastair Parkfield today. The episode originally aired in 1995, a whole 15 years ago. Well we would like to wish a hearty congratulations to Lisa and her new husband as they become a married couple today. I know I would love to attend this ceremony. How great would it be to be amongst the Simpson clan on this joyous day.
I guess in some countries you have to register anything you can ride with the Motor Vehicle Department, even it’s not motored. I wonder if it’s possible to get a DUI while on this ass. At least the owner will know which donkey is his…which might help when he comes stumbling out of the local watering hole at 2AM.
