Police suspect vandalism....Local resident claims to have seen suspicious looking characters in the area and has worked with police artists to identify these persons of interest....

If you have seen these persons, or know them, or their whereabouts, you are asked to contact your local tip line for a cash reward....no questions asked...

Result of an emergency stop after the engineer was distracted by what he claimed were " They was Sireens, they loved Peet up and turned him into a horney toad!". There was no sign of fireman Peter Wilson and the investigation continues into his disappearance.

It seems there are still a few kinks to work out of the route.

"Yelling, for goats, is not unusual. They will yell for all sorts of reasons. "Mother goats call for their young when they get separated," explained goat specialist Dr. Daniel Waldron of Texas A&M, and "young kid goats also call for their mothers." "Goats may also 'yell' when they expect to get fed," continued Dr. Waldron. "If I feed one pen of goats, the second pen may start 'yelling' because they want to be fed right now."

Hey guys, I found the problem! Some idiot installed a fourier transformer instead of a regular transformer, so that's how we ended up with a sine wave.

Probably Photoshopped. The real issue here is the weed spraying that is on going in the picture. If you enlarge, you see they sprayed right up to a fence with what looks like Holsteins inside. (milk cows) Nothing like a good shot of herbicide in the morning glass of moo juice to be sure those apple seeds you swallowed don't start growing in you.

For the 2 days the railway track layers union # 2486 went on strike and the contractor imported some non union labor to lay the track connection. The Union wouldn't let them use their track cutting machine so the laborers did the best they could!

Look at the arrows and you can see that the image was edited.

  • Red arrows ~ proper shadows!
  • Yellow arrows ~ Improper shadows!
  • Green arrows ~ Compare the angle of the worker and the post!

Not convinced:

I think two of your yellow arrows are from the next telegraph pole (see the ones on the left of the track), the other is just a slight depression. The angles from the worker and post are at slightly different angles because one is uphill and the other downhill

Usually when one of my kitties do that, I expect a hairball to come flying out of them!

I will have to talk to the design department and see if they can straighten that point out. Our company CR4 does appreciate constructive comments.

Having never been through an earthquake of any kind I cannot comment on this other than to say, when mother nature decides it's going to be that way she finds a way to make it happen, I have been through a multitude of hurricanes and flooding events and personal experience tells me this is real.

You just can't deny that the forces that nature can dole out a far greater than anything man can do to prevent them.

Nuff said!!

...Back from the shadows again,

Out where an Indian's your friend

Where the vegetables are green,

And you can pee in the stream [and that's important]

Because we're back from the shadows again

This performance was brought to you by bear whiz beer.

It's in the water, that's why its yellow.

I'm leaving this one alone. I cant believe Mel Brooks got away with it! Probably because it was so dammed funny.

I thought the same, and was happy you gave me the Segway....

I first saw it when it first came out in the theaters, my older brothers took me, they said I was too young and if I got caught I had to wait out in the car,.... but, that was just another threat to control me.

.... I think Mel Brooks got away with it because it was another time.

"Spaceballs" was hilarious...... but I didn't think so at the time that I actually stopped watching it, and I actually did finally watched it through for the fist time about 5 years ago.

"Are we there yet?"

"We are,.... good,.... well,.... smoke em if you got em."

With apologies to all who used the "sine" idea. I posted before reading all the entries.

The first successful gravity wave detector was camouflaged as the intercontinental railroad, and still occasionally picks up a signal from the black traffic circle.
