Pyrat Rum Pictures

Categories: Beer, Wine and Spirits.

I promised in a comment to Phil’s post about Pyrat Rums a while back to post pictures. It’s been a few months, but I finally got around to processing the pics. (I apparently just like playing with cameras–not actually processing pictures :-) )

Also, we cracked open the bottle of Cask 1623 the weekend before last. All the hype is, in fact, justified.

Texas “Body Farm” on Hold

Categories: Food, Politics and Local Topics, Science, and United States of America.

Sometimes the news is breath-takingly weird.

It seems that Texas State University in San Marcos, TX, had to put their “body farm” project on hold. What’s a body farm, you ask? It’s a location to study the decomposition of, well, bodies. Human ones. For forensic research purposes. There are a couple of these in the USA already, but Texas has a different enough climate to warrant one of its own.

But that’s not the really weird part. The reason this is being put on hold is not the obvious “not in my backyard” argument. Rather, it is the concern that the resulting buzzard density might endanger traffic at a nearby community airport.

Oh, they’ve done it now.

I wonder if Disney will consider Hamas’ use of Mickey Mouse as an act of war? They should know better than to mess with the mouse! Now we’re going to have to save the world for democracycontent-owners.

This really isn’t funny [snicker]. No, really.
