Anyone out there old enough to remember when we were taught in school that, eventually, the oceans would feed the world. Famine would be eradicated. The seas of the globe were vast enough to provide for everyone. Even the Disney movie 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea tauted this concept. Then something went wrong. Turns out there are Dead Zones out there and they are growing. Areas with a lack of free oxygen to sustain life. Huge 3 dimensional deserts in the water that extend from the surface to the floor. Areas as lifeless as the face of the moon.

That press conference about "Bigfoot" yesterday in Palo Alto CA was about what we all expected. Midway sideshows moved to the internet. When I was younger, it was all about Fairies and Leprechuns and Neanderthals and, of course, the Abominal Snowman. People seem to enjoy lining up to to have SUCKER tatooed across rheir forehead. A fool and his money are soon parted.

Studies have now shown that the 8 tentacles on Octupi are actually 6 "arms" and 2 "legs". BTW - The creatures are extremely smart.

A new fad? Anonymous Nagging.

If you are going to use a designated driver, please make sure they are old enough to legally operated a motor vehicle.

Some criminals are always looking for a way to "cut out the middle man".


Enjoy your weekend!
