One of my favorite people from last year's Centralia Campout. Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Truman Price. The video is from 2005. He still looks the same.

Here's a dirty phone for you. In the time it takes for a modern smart phone to get this disgusting, it will be obsolete.
Imgur: full of all the magic and wonders of the Internet.

A mechanic's rag and a can of Magnolia spray cleaner will fix that right up.

Mobbing: Because Owls are predators, they are feared by many birds. For this reason, they are often attacked or harassed by groups of smaller birds. This is not limited to one species, as once the attack begins, many different birds will join in. Interestingly, the Owl rarely responds to the harassment, and it is just as rare for the Owl to be injured in any way! The mobbing may succeed in forcing the Owl to move on to a different area. The retreating Owl is often pursued by the mob.

This is just the latest case of armadillo ricochet. In April, a bullet shot by a Georgia man ricocheted off an armadillo and struck his mother-in-law in the back.
I read this headline and thought it might be from The Onion or a segment of a “MythBusters” episode: "Cass County official: Man injured after...

I've been reviewing page proofs for Excel 2016 Bible, and saw this edit to insert a hyphen. That was the first time she suggested such a thing, and I'm on Chapter 6. 

There's probably a book layout rule: Never start a line with a number, unless it's a numbered list.

I'm depressed by the poor use of mojo. I thought better of this bunch.

After drinking 10 Cokes a day for 30 days in addition to his normal diet of meats, fish, egg, chicken, and green salads, Prior gained 23 pounds and increased his body fat by 65 percent. Prior to drinking more soda in one day than any person should in a week, Prior’s blood pressure was considered normal at 129/77. By the end it had skyrocketed to 143/96.

Impossible .. there's no fat in Coke :-)
I have lived a lifetime through health warnings about saturated fats and cholesterol.  Sugar was the real villain all along, and still is.

+Pamn Baptist took this photo today. Me, hugging a former tree. It's my Waterloo WL-14 LTR. I really like this guitar. The photo has something to do with Squirrely Dan. That's all I can say right now.

I couldn't find any backwoods hillbillies, so I had to buy this at the liquor store. Saving it for a late-night jam in Centralia.

If you call it exfoliating, it sounds more beautifying.

I hate to say it, +Juan Cordero, but this video tops the one where we play on the pier in Guaymas.

This video is very high quality. And that guitar player is my new idol. That's exactly how I want to play.

That's how they make money from the free Windows 10 upgrades.
Procrastinators everywhere rejoiced when it was discovered that Windows 10 was bringing back everyone’s favorite time waster. But unlike the last time you played Microsoft Solitaire on your PC, this time you’ll have to pay a subscription fee just to get rid of the ads.

In a world where being in contact with someone who has been in contact with a suspect makes you a suspect, you'd be amazed how well they can find things in your nothing to confirm their suspicions. You can't get the data back once it's out of your hands, so keeping it well under control is just good policy.
