I met a horse tonight… .

Horses are smart.  Like super smart.

When you really get into one, own one, well, you’ll know.

Unobtainium.

Unobtainium

In fiction, engineering, and thought experiments, unobtainium is any fictional, extremely rare, costly, or impossible material, or (less commonly) device needed to fulfill a given design for a given application. The properties of any particular unobtainium depend on the intended use. For example, a pulley made of unobtainium might be massless and frictionless; however, if used in a nuclear rocket, unobtainium would be light, strong at high temperatures, and resistant to radiation damage. The concept of unobtainium is often applied flippantly or humorously. For instance, unobtainium is described as being stronger than helium, and lighter than air.

The word unobtainium derives humorously from unobtainable followed by the suffix -ium, the conventional designation for a chemical element. It pre-dates the similar-sounding IUPAC systematic element names, such as ununoctium. An alternative spelling, unobtanium is sometimes used (for example, for the crypto-currency Unobtanium), based on the spelling of metals such as titanium.

That’s an amazing story.

The 11/2-year-old German shepherd was spotted Tuesday on San Clemente Island, a Navy-owned training base 70 miles off San Diego.

The blue-eyed pup disappeared Feb. 10 as Haworth, a commercial fisherman from San Diego, worked on a boat two miles from the island.

“They were pulling in their (lobster) traps, and one minute Luna was there, and the next minute she was gone,” said Sandy DeMunnik, spokeswoman for Naval Base Coronado. “They looked everywhere for her. They couldn’t see her. The water was dark, and she’s dark.”

Then we moved to Florida.  Actually, taking the Florida bar many years ago, we took the opportunity to go snorkeling in the Keys.  One week holed up in a hotel in Tampa for the exam and the next in the Keys.

Jumping into crystal clear water with a life jacket, it soon became clear, floating in salt water is not hard sans jacket.   So it was a great time and I learned how to float.

Ok, fast forward – after our move I loved to snorkel along the gulf coast.  At first.  Not a lot to see, but fun anyway.

Bernie’s Wife Visits Tent City… .

And Bernie then threatens… .

635935928961694753--DSC7552Who exactly does Sanders think he is to threaten an elected official in a state so far from his own socialist bubble?

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders ripped into Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio at a rally in northern Arizona on Thursday, after facing criticism from the Clinton campaign for an encounter Sanders’ wife had with the immigration-hardliner sheriff.

The U.S. senator from Vermont said Arpaio’s arrests of undocumented immigrants, often separating families, were “outrageous and unconscionable.”

“It’s easy for bullies like Sheriff Arpaio to pick on people who have no power,” Sanders said. “If I am elected president — the president of the United States does have power. So watch out, Joe.”

Politics.

And can it not go without saying that Sanders’ calls for protections for those that are here ILLEGALLY?

….common sense?
