However, it’s Coolidge’s A Friend in Need that became the most popular of the lot. The title comes from the fact that the bulldog in the foreground is seen secretly slipping an ace to his partner, while his competitors give side-glances around the table. Perhaps it’s this sly, yet playful depiction of deceit applied to man’s best, most loyal friend that makes the painting so amusing. Although the original has never been up for sale, it’s thought to be worth millions of dollars. The Story Behind the “Dogs Playing Poker” Painting
“I wonder what the founders of this country would have thought if they could have looked 200 plus years into the future and watch the nomination of a Supreme Court Justice descend into arguing about whether the nominee, in his youth, made a fart joke?” The Morning Rant
Forgetting Venezuela’s Animals | Joel D. Hirst’s Blog Its bad enough to starve your people – but endangered animals wasting away, eyes clouding over as a great lion or a once-powerful tiger struggle to their feet to limp over to the muddy green pond to take a drink, lapping up the muck, their only sustenance, till they no longer have the strength even for that. Imprisoned unto death while the revolutionary government abdicates its role in their care and the corpulent dictator imbibes fine wines a world away, where the zoo still has visitors and the animals, flesh. A prize stallion, whinnying in terror as the mob steals in at night to slaughter him – noble flesh bred for strength and endurance now adorning the business end of a kebab over a fire set in a rusted garbage can.
See the McLaren 720S, Porsche 911 GT2 RS, Honda Civic Type R, Lamborghini Huracán Performante, BMW M5, Ford Mustang GT PP2, Alfa Romeo Stelvio Q4 Quadrifoglio, Kia Stinger GT, Audi TT RS, Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, Mazda MX-5 Club, and the Aston Martin Vantage face off in an epic quarter-mile sprint for glory and ultimate bragging rights.
A history of the oxo good grips peeler We also knew we needed a special material, a tactile rubber material to get a better grip, especially when the tool was wet.
Messages Hidden in Bird Calls or Music Could Be Used to Hijack Your Voice Assistant A study last year found that Alexa could pick up on “whisper” commands that fell outside the range of human hearing. And last May, Alexa recorded an Oregon woman’s private conversations with her husband and randomly sent them to one of her contacts in Seattle. Fortunately, they were only talking about hardwood floors, but Alexa still got the boot.
The Scientific Poetics of Affection: Lewis Thomas on Altruism and Why We Are Wired for Friendship: “One thing I’d like to know most of all: when those ants have made the Hill, and are all there, touching and exchanging, and the whole mass begins to behave like a single huge creature, and thinks, what on earth is that thought? And while you’re at it, I’d like to know a second thing: when it happens, does any single ant know about it? Does his hair stand on end?”
If You Hate the Patriarchy, Give Us Back Our Electricity The next time some fool complains about cultural appropriation tell her that in complete fairness, only white men are entitled to use electricity then. Keep your tamales and we’ll keep electricity.
No matter what you choose, the years ahead will be every bit as ugly as the spectacle unfolding on our televisions and on social media. The Great Brown Army believes this is their time to the destroy the white patriarchy, by which they mean white America. The fight to stop it is going to ugly and you will have to get used to thinking about things in a way that used to feel wrong. But, the fight is going to happen whether you snap out of your daze or remain in the CivNat delusion. The question before you is which side are you on?
And if anyone’s listening, Zuckerpunk and the little walking Tw*t that runs Twaddle are the top two most deserving recipients of this years’ “What’s The Frequency, Kenneth?” moment, IRL.
D.L. Hughley and the all-encompassing victim status that is Leftism – Bookworm Room I’ve never heard a Jew refer to himself or other Jews as a Kike. I’ve never heard an Italian refer to himself or other Italians as a Guinea. I’ve never heard an Asian person refer to himself or other Asians as a Chink.

Most professors are, in the Z Man’s most excellent phrase, hormonal blue hairs. They also live very nice lives. They drive fancy cars. Their kids go to private schools. Which kinda contradicts the Revolutionary message they preach at undergrads, dontcha think?
