I don't know about everyone else, but I cannot stand a greasy screen. It would drive me nuts to try to combine this.

Went to Victoria today. Once a year one gets to take the Black Ball ferry from Port Angeles for free, and today was my day.  On the way back saw humpback whales in the middle of the Strait of Juan de Fuca.
    Humbacks used to be so rare in the Salish Sea that you needed a marine biologist to confirm that they weren't grey whales.  This pod was quite large, and clearly humpies.
  Humpbacks are the 'spectacular' whales that like to wave their tail flukes and sometimes fly through the air (imagine a black rubber school bus momentarily defying gravity before crashing down...to picture humpbacks hunting with bubble nets, imagine three or four school bus sized critters leaping out of the water in unison); if you've seen a whale on TV (or in Fantasia) doing something interesting, it was probably either a humpie or an orca.
  Picture is related because it's whales in Victoria, though these are Orcas. And also topiaries.

"One cylinder wiped out a deck at the side of a nearby home, and another ignited a brush fire in a neighbor's yard that quickly spread to a large cedar tree and two nearby vehicles parked along the street."
 
Investigators say the pickup was already burning when it pulled onto Southeast 84th Street last night. The driver apparently jumped out and ran before the vehicle exploded.
Police are investigating after a burning pickup truck loaded with gas canisters set off a series of explosions that turned a quiet Newcastle neighborhood into a war zone Tuesday evening.

"The prosecutor also said he thought it was time to reconsider the UC police department's role.

'I don't think a university should be in the policing business,' Deters said."

I've wondered if campus sexual assaults might be handled more openly and vigorously if they were handled by local law enforcement, rather than a police force that was answerable to college administrators who were interested in hushing things up.
 
University of Cincinnati cop charged with murder in traffic-stop shooting

A University of Cincinnati officer who shot a motorist during a traffic stop over a missing front license plate has been indicted on murder charges, a prosecutor said Wednesday, adding that the officer "purposely killed him" and "should never have been a police officer."

Steve's law of boats:
   The amount of joy that a watercraft brings varies in inverse proportion to the boat's displacement in tonnes, its waterline length,  and/or the power and complexity of its propulsion system.
  Went boating last weekend and today. Will probably go again this evening, because I can.

+John R What kind of Asian are you again?
 
Here is the follow-up video that answers a few of the questions that came up on the post about heart attacks a two days ago.

The topics covered:
--Silent heart attacks, like my Pop had
--The different symptoms of women vs. men (Thanks +Denise Morgan Kalicki for that questions)
--The increase in risk for people of Asian Indian ethnicity, which really blew my away when I saw the statistics. This should be a major health initiative in not just India, but the UK, US, Canada, etc!! The impact is going to be huge over the next 25 years.  
-The difference in symptoms for second heart attacks another fact that is never talked about
--Sudden cardiac death in athletes (Thanks to +Dede King  for that discussion)

Anyway, aside from rice cookers, the video has useful information about how you all are going to die how some heart attacks have less than obvious symptoms but still can be recognized in time to get help.

Any idiot can pay to have a lion lured out of a park.
A real hunter would go after these things.
 
Measured at 18 feet, 3 inches, this giant snake may be the second-largest python ever caught in Florida: http://cbsn.ws/1U7CbBA

   I sympathize with the plaintiff (I know her brother), but...National Parks are full of animals at least as dangerous as a mountain goat;  stinging insects, for example, regularly kill people with allergies.  
   If the suit succeeded it would suggest that park visitors should be protected from all risk, which can only happen either at the expense of animals, or of people who are willing to accept the risk. 
  If I understand this case correctly, the victim notified park rangers of the presence of the goat on that particular trail, but still chose to hike there. I'm inclined to think that responsibility for protecting a human from harm falls upon the individual who has the most ability to do so; in this case, the dead hiker could have protected himself simply by choosing not to hike there.
Woman can't sue federal government for negligence in death of her husband, who was killed by a mountain goat in 2010.

+Petter Hebæk That was one of the original intentions of US national parks. They're now kind of an uneasy mix of wilderness and accessibility.  People expect stuff from park staff (like rescues), so the park has to make all sorts of rules to manage expectations.

So it begins.
 
Seattle, Everett and Tacoma are all activating the first phase of their drought and water shortage plans. Residents are urged to conserve water. There are some tips to limit water use in our link.
Several Puget Sound cities are one step closer to water restrictions as the region's record-setting hot, dry summer continues.

So strange to have rain in Texas and drought in the northwest.
