Coffee

I suppose those two quad-shots of espresso that I drink almost every morning may be of some benefit beside cranking me up.

"A new study shows that a caffeine concentration equivalent to four cups of coffee promotes the movement of a regulatory protein into mitochondria, enhancing their function and protecting cardiovascular cells from damage."

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday to Mel Linde, who is now so old that only 4.7% of the U.S. population lives to be so incredibly ancient.

Inspector Comey

"But Comey, a full six feet and seven inches of righteousness and zeal, says he didn’t know that Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin were man and wife. The man conducting an investigation into the conduct of the world’s most famous woman, and presidential candidate, did not know of the infamous husband of Ms. Clinton’s principal counsellor.
Ineluctably this leads to the conclusion that the only conceivable reason James Comey was selected as the head of the FBI, was that Inspector Clouseau was too busy sorting out whether there was ever any connection between one Brad Pitt and a woman called Angelina Jolie."

Birthdays

Happy Birthday in Heaven to my cousin Debbie Gelpi

Birds are Dinosaurs

"The first beak was a horn-covered pincer tip at the end of the jaw," said Bhullar, who is an assistant professor and assistant curator in geology and geophysics. "The remainder of the jaw was filled with teeth. At its origin, the beak was a precision grasping mechanism that served as a surrogate hand as the hands transformed into wings."

Unfettered Abortion is Evil

"Pope Francis likened abortion to Nazi eugenics practiced “with white gloves,” and said the only real families are those based on marriage between a man and a woman, using uncharacteristically blunt language on two controversial moral issues."

Remy - TSA

I usually enjoy Remy's videos and I never enjoy going through the TSA. The TSA should be disbanded post haste.

Bloviating Bovines

These people should bear the honorary American Indian name "Walking Eagle", which is used to describe a bird so full of shit that it cannot fly.

Buried in the article:

"The White House said in a statement following the briefings that Kelly and Flood did not attend the meetings but "did make brief remarks before the meetings started to relay the President's desire for as much openness as possible under the law."

In the article they pretend that the President is not the executive as laid out in the United States Constitution and is simply "a subject of the investigation".

'It's a f---ing circus': Experts are floored that White House officials attended highly classified briefings about the Russia probe

Random Things

I saw this and just had to snap a photograph.
Stereotypes
I have been browsing PlutoTV  this weekend and watched:

Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure: I have seen it when it it was first released and it has not lost its charm.  Party on Dudes!


Charade: I cannot think of any Cary Grant movie that I do not like and Audrey Hepburn is a pleasant bonus.  Of course Walter MatthauJames Coburn, and George Kennedy were actors I grew up watching also.


and Ashby:  I do not recall ever seeing or hearing of this movie.  For a tragedy, it is decidedly uplifting.
