          1. If you want to help out African elephants and other wildlife, check out this website.

            http://www.awf.org

            I've been a member since early 1990, when I got a junk mail flyer shortly after getting back from my first trip to East Africa.

             

    1. Can this Tik Tok be put on a loop in the lobby of every ER, please?

      Maybe in rotation with a few other stories … such as the ABC report that included

      In Florida, virus cases have filled so many hospital beds that ambulance services and fire departments are straining to respond to emergencies. Some patients wait inside ambulances for up to an hour before hospitals in St. Petersburg, Florida, can admit them — a process that usually takes about 15 minutes, Pinellas County Administrator Barry Burton said.

      One person who suffered a heart attack was bounced from six hospitals before finding an emergency room in New Orleans that could take him in, said Joe Kanter, Louisiana’s chief public health officer.

      “It’s a real dire situation,” Kanter said. “There’s just not enough qualified staff in the state right now to care for all these patients.”

      1. Hospitals ought to put this on a loop in the lobby after the censors clean up the language. It's pretty raw. The message could be lost if people are too offended.

         

  1. Republicans on climate change: 

    The IPCC has sent a “code red” to policy makers with its latest report on climate change. But it’s business leaders, not policy makers, who can act most swiftly and effectively. Here’s how. 

    Back in the mid-’90s, when stories true and untrue first started circulating around the Internet, one apocryphal story of a radio conversation between a U.S. naval ship and Canadian coastal authorities became particularly popular. It went like this:

    Canadians: Please divert your course 15 degrees the South to avoid a collision.

    Americans: This is the Captain of a US Navy ship. Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees the North to avoid a collision.

    Canadians: Negative. You will have to divert your course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision.

    Americans: This is the aircraft carrier USS Lincoln, the second-largest ship in the U.S. fleet. We are accompanied by three destroyers and three cruisers. I demand that YOU divert YOUR course 15 degrees North, or measures will be taken to ensure the safety of this ship. 

    Canadians: This is a lighthouse. Over.

     

  2. Yesterday I saw a blog that linked to this youtube post

    https://youtu.be/xxxYEnERK2g

     

    The blogger's comment was outrage over the fact that rhinos do not lay eggs, but these are the same scientists who want to tell us that 5G is safe and global warming is real.

    Neither Dunning Kruger nor Darwin can explain this. It feels like idiocracy from here on out. Turtles! All the way – turtles!

     

    1. I suppose that if one was really smashed and was incurring alcohol related hallucinations, in between bouts of barfing & dry heaves, one MIGHT confuse a rhino with a duck billed platypus, a mammal that does reproduce by laying eggs. Altho different sizes, they kinds, sorta, have a similar shape.

        1. Can't you see and hear it now……

          Tucker waving his clammy hands and screaming,

          "HOAX!!! Fake news! Deep State conspiracy to bring me down in cahoots with the CIA and FBI. Stop the Steal! This wouldn't happen Viktor Orban's Hungary! Dr. Fauci!"
