The Pig Trap


When the time comes to harvest a pig, Kevin adds a section of the fencing, refills the bowl a few times,
and the pigs ignore the new section of fencing. A week or two later, he adds another section, and keeps the bowl full. Finally, he puts the last section up right on the trail they created, and this section has the trap door in it. A screw eye is twisted into the end of a corn cob, and a cable is attached to it, and is connected to a pin that drops the door. As soon as a pig picks up the corn, the pin is pulled, the door is dropped..... - -ォ Taxicab Depressions

"Bio-Duck" turns out to be a 'Minke

Mystery of 'ocean quack sound' solved The strange sound was first detected by submarines about 50 years ago.
Those who heard it were surprised by its quack-like qualities. Since then, the repetitive, low frequency noise has been recorded many times in the waters around the Antarctic and western Australia. Suggestions for its source have ranged from fish to ships. The researchers now say they have "conclusive evidence" that the bio-duck is produced by the Antarctic minke whale.

These Guys Made Up a Fake Case to Get on 'Judge Judy'


What did you guys do with the money?
We divided it between us. After we left the taping, we took our food stipend, went to a dispensary, rented a next-year model convertible red mustang, and we drove that past the studio and sat outside for a second, just like, tempting fate, flicking off Judge Judy for a moment. Then we went to Musso and Frank's and used our money to have a lavish, silly lunch, then took the convertible to Malibu and hung out in a hot tub with friends and drank champagne all day. | VICE United States

When guns are outlawed only vaginas will have guns.

Cops find loaded gun in Tennessee woman's vagina: A female cop was performing a routine search when she noticed an "unknown object" in Archer's groin.

Obama the Sweet-Smelling Flower: Carl Scott once accurately described Obama’s role in Illinois politics as that of the “sweet -smelling flower.” He doesn’t get anywhere near breaking any laws himself and takes a high tone about ethics in politics and public service, but he directs his specific attacks on the opposition.

No meaningful public debate over belief and unbelief is possible.

Not only do convinced secularists no longer understand what the issue is;
they are incapable of even suspecting that they do not understand, or of caring whether they do. The logical and imaginative grammars of belief, which still informed the thinking of earlier generations of atheists and skeptics, are no longer there. In their place, there is now—where questions of the divine, the supernatural, or the religious are concerned—only a kind of habitual intellectual listlessness. -- Gods and Gopniks by David Bentley Hart | Articles | First Things

An open letter to Chelsea Clinton’s unborn child

You get to be that real-life prince or princess, in a real-life castle where Mommy Chelsea is also a princess,
Grandma is about to be crowned Queen, and Grandpa Bill is a retired ex-King . Inside the castle towers you will find that Mommy, Mommy’s mommy and Mommy’s daddy Bill are all really good at make-believe games. So you get to pretend all the time! Mommy’s mommy and Mommy’s daddy even pretend to still be married even though they’ve been living hundreds of miles apart for 14 years! | New York Post

Cool culture is death culture.

It’s cool to do heroin, which must mean it’s cool to O.D. because that is how most junkies end up.
If you have cancer, useless natural medicine is in and effective chemotherapy is out. It’s cool to be pro-choice which means it’s cool to wipe out the black population. Euthanasia is cool. Preserving life is not. Old age isn’t cool. You’re supposed to “live fast, die young, and leave a beautiful corpse.” Gavin McIness: It's Cool to Love "Not Cool" | Truth Revolt

100 Items to Disappear First

We are federally admonished not to choose our own friends and neighbors as if our lives were our own business.

No. Instead we must follow the social directives of the Potomac Soviet, whether anyone wants to or not. Few do.
In Washington, on the Hill, upper Connecticut, the inner suburbs, the outer suburbs, everywhere, clubs and restaurants are either almost perfectly white or perfectly black. Whites happily patronize Latin American restaurants intended for the general trade, yet in mini-barrios many venues tacitly are for browns only. So what? It is how people want it. If freedom of association is racism, I am for it. So what? - - Fred On Everything

Crazy people hear voices, right?


In Washington everybody hears them.
At the airport of course the gurgley over-enunciated “security” announcements by some dimwit elocution major who sounds like she wants to lick the microphone. On the subway we are urged by other recorded Mommies to watch each other and report suspicious behavior. What behavior isn’t suspicious late at night on an urban train system? “Yeah, officer, they’re like, swarthy and got beards and funny clothes and talk some weird language….”

Voices, instructions, warnings. We are the Admonished People.
Free? No. Brave? No. Watched, warned, told, herded, yes. Urban robots. Just what Georgey Wash and Tommy Jefferson had in mind, I think. - - Fred On Everything

Everything You Hate About D.C. Is in the Podesta Divorce

After 11 years of marriage, and charges of Heather’s unfaithfulness,
their contentious divorce is centered on who gets the $5.6 million mansion in Washington, as well as homes in Virginia, Italy, and Australia. Then there is the “world famous” art collection with 1,300 pieces estimated to be worth hundreds of millions, in addition to the jewelry, investments, and both businesses with prestigious Fortune 500 clients. Most intriguing will be the valuing of the “Podesta brand” that Heather insists she helped build. Splitting these assets will buy the best divorce lawyers in the city their “new vacation homes.” - - PJ Media »

The Gay Fashion Accessory


Over the last two decades, having a homosexual on your piety bracelet has been the hallmark of progressive fashion.
It is so well established now that it is inconceivable to them that any civilized person would have a contrary opinion on homosexual marriage, homosexual rights and so forth. It is why young males today work so hard to adopt bathhouse fashion, going so far as to get beard transplants so they can look like a young George Michael. The Z Blog › The New Russia

When the Civil War ended, thousands of Confederates chose

to leave the United States entirely and settle in Brazil.
About 10,000 Southerners made the trip to Brazil, where most settled in the state of São Paulo. Today their descendants form an ethic subgroup. In the city of Americana, the 300-member Fraternity of American Descendants holds an annual festival with Confederate flags, uniforms, and music, and a local cemetery holds the remains of W.S.

The Ultimate Self-Help Book: Dante's 'Divine Comedy'


Reading Dante uncovered the sin most responsible for my immediate crisis. Family and home ought to have been for me icons of the good—that is, windows into the divine—but without meaning to, I had loved them too much, seeing them as absolute goods, thereby rendering them into idols. They had to be cast down, or at least put in their proper place, if I was going to be free. - -

LIZ JONES: Hooray for sexual liberation! Now I can die lonely and poor: I am a feminist,
I really am (I’ve never let a man pay for anything), but feel the current generation of women in their 60s, the first to abandon the way of life of their mothers, which meant they pursued careers, married and had children late, had affairs then got divorced, all in the name of liberation, are now imprisoned in debt, alcohol abuse and loneliness, wishing they could die, and do it soon.

The old Bill of Rights extended rights irrespective of group membership.

The new one wipes out universal rights and replaces them with particular privileges.
Entire amendments may sink beneath the waves, but a few groups get comfortable deck chairs on the Titanic. Why is one group protected rather than another? Why do gay activists get a government-bonded right, complete with Federal enforcement, while polygamy is outlawed? The only answers are rationalizations. Sultan Knish: Wrong is the New Right

Do you trust GM?


It is not a stretch to state that probably millions of people now believe that GM is capable of almost any form of skullduggery.
Such people will never buy a GM car -- €“ no matter how rave the reviews, no matter how otherwise appealing they may be. Mistakes are one thing. But when people associate you -- or your brand --€“ with serial and deliberate assholeness, it'€™s a bridge burned that can'€™t be rebuilt. Untergang for GM? » Eric Peters Autos

A racist is one who approves

of rigorous education, good English, civilized manners, minimal criminality, and responsible parenthood, among other things. I am, then, a racist. I see no reason to grovel about it. I decided long ago that if, while I was doing a radio interview, a caller-in told me, “You a racist!” I would hesitate as if puzzled, and say “…So what?” - - Fred On Everything


The world will soon wake up to the reality that everyone is broke and can collect nothing from the bankrupt, who are owed unlimited amounts by the insolvent, who are attempting to make late payments on a bank holiday in the wrong country, with an unacceptable currency, against defaulted collateral, of which nobody is sure who holds title. -- the woodpile report

Now no lie is "too big to tell:"The Truth About Chicago’s Crime Rates For the case of Tiara Groves is not an isolated one.
Chicago conducted a 12-month examination of the Chicago Police Department’s crime statistics going back several years, poring through public and internal police records and interviewing crime victims, criminologists, and police sources of various ranks. We identified 10 people, including Groves, who were beaten, burned, suffocated, or shot to death in 2013 and whose cases were reclassified as death investigations, downgraded to more minor crimes, or even closed as noncriminal incidents—all for illogical or, at best, unclear reasons.

Christianity Rising... in China

Surely, it is more than passing strange.
A nation that is still ruled by the Communist Party seems to have fostered free enterprise and Christian worship. It is happening while so-called free nations have been running away from free enterprise and from religion. Had Enough Therapy?:


Christ’s resurrection reveals that we do not die, “period”; we die, “comma.” On Easter God turns pain to power; God transforms tragedy to triumph and pushes through crucifixion to resurrection.... Sense of Events: He is risen! He is risen, indeed!

Governments and kingdoms of men have tried to exterminate the Truth, but all have failed.

No religion has accomplished what Christianity has accomplished. No ideology. No school of thought. No idea, no government, no political system. Nobody else, nothing else has ever lit the world on fire like the Gospel. Hallelujah, Happy Easter | The Matt Walsh Blog

Scalia and Ginsburg Chat


Scalia: [The Bill of Rights] should not be painted as the foundation of the American democracy… Don’t forget the Bill of Rights was an afterthought. It was not what they debated about in Philadelphia in 1787… What they thought would preserve a free society was the structure of government — that’s what they debated about in 1787. And if you think that’s false, just look around the world. Every tin-horn dictator in the world today has a bill of rights. It isn’t a bill of rights that produces freedom. It is the structure of government that prevents anybody from seizing all the power.
