I LOVE DOGS (even if they aren't always the most intelligent creatures)

I'm not a fan of passengers applauding after a routine landing

But this particular landing, I'd be clapping like crazy afterwards (probably with a urine stain in my pants).


What's your preferred style of house?

I hope this graphic of architectural styles opens large enough that you can zoom in on it and read it. Quite a handy little overview.

I guess with a population of 1.4 billion, you're bound to get the odd 7'4" 14 year old...



Tom Brady played all of last season with a torn MCL

I respect the guy's accomplishments, but I'm not a fan. This is pretty gritty stuff though.


So you're gonna die. You want your remains composted. Some states say yes. Catholic church says no!

Washington, Colorado and Oregon are now among the US states that have legalized the process of converting bodies into soil, a procedure the Catholic Church said fails to show 'respect for the body of the deceased.'

The process for composting a body was introduced by the Seattle-based company Recompose, which is now open for business after the state of Washington legalized the process in 2019. Colorado was the second state to legalize it, followed by Oregon, when Gov. Kate Brown in mid-June signed House Bill 2574 into law.

Here’s how it works: A dead body is broken down through a process known as Natural Organic Reduction by placing the body in a reusable vessel, covering it with wood chips and aerating it, which creates an environment for microbes and essential bacteria. The body, over a span of about 30 days, is fully transformed into soil. This process is seen as a more sustainable alternative to cremation, which requires fossil fuels and releases carbon dioxide. Proponents say families can use the soil to plant a tree or a garden to honor their loved ones. In public testimony, the Oregon bill garnered widespread support.


The New York State Catholic Conference in a statement said composting human remains is inappropriate.

“While not everyone shares the same beliefs with regard to the reverent and respectful treatment of human remains, we believe there are a great many New Yorkers who would be uncomfortable at best with this proposed composting/fertilizing method, which is more appropriate for vegetable trimmings and eggshells than for human bodies,” it said.


"Erasing history"

Does the lack of hair put you off? A face only a mother could love?

Just givin' er!!

How many DUers are going to challenge this world record?

Best make sure you're really good at keeping your balance...
