Roll That 20-Sided Dice

Apparently D & D stands for Drunk & Dumb not Dungeons & Dragons .
A 23 year old man attending the Chochella Music Festival became disorderly (dis-roberly more like it) when authorities asked him to put his Wizard costume back on. I guess when 12th level or higher wizards get hot they have to shed their magical cloaks. Who knew? Officers asked him for almost 10 minutes (in real person time) to put on his robe - he was having none of that and threatened to turn them all into newts. He didn't and he lost almost all his health points on the wrong end of a tazer gun. Which has more hit points than.. a dumbass warlock.

Allow Me To Retort Then....

In response to Veterans' concerns about the Music As A Weapon tour coming to the Resch Center May 17th, Dave Draiman, front man, for Disturbed had this to say. So Listen and Listen GOOD. 10,000 fists in the air can't be wrong y'know.

Get Off My Lawn!!!

Veterans are concerned about a "heavy metal festival" being held May 17th at the Resch Center in Green Bay - The Music As a Weapon Tour. Their concern is that the "headbangers" in attendance could be disrespectful to their surroundings - in particular to the Veteran's Memorial Monument on the Brown County Arena property. See Article.
The Veterans were/are still upset about a mini golf course being set up last summer (in their opinion) too close to the memorial. OK. But what does that have to do with this concert?
Why, after all the football and hockey games, monster truck/motocross rallies, "heavy metal" as well as other concerts and events held in the vicinity of their monument- is this particular concert being singled out now as a problem?
There's been literally 100's of thousands of people pass the way of the memorial since "mini golf gate" and now it's a problem?
Are the "headbangers" more likely to trash a sacred memorial than sports fans? No.
Are "headbangers" more likely to desecrate public property than country music fans or the New Kids on the Block crowd?
I respect and am grateful for everything veterans have done in defense of this country and it's constitution. But their's is an opinion purely based on ignorance.
Many of these heavy metal bands have worked with the USO, have played for our troops and have done shows supporting veteran's organizations. The "offended" veterans obviously have no idea of who these headbangers are.
I'll bet there are many "headbangers" among those who bought tribute bricks -ranging from $100-$500- for the memorial that they are supposedly pre-determined to vandalize because of the music they choose to listen to.
Again I thank the veterans for all they have sacrificed for the rights I have as an American. Including the right of free speech and the right to assemble (put those two together and you have a concert) but please don't turn the Bill of Rights into an Opinion of Wrongs.

Google Earth THIS!!!!


Inspired by watching a documentary about Google Earth, 18-year-old Rory McInnes decided to give aerial observers an eyeful, with the help of a can of white paint. It only took him a half-hour to create the masterpiece. Amazingly, the penis on the roof was undiscovered for an entire year, until a passing helicopter pilot spotted it and let his passengers take pictures. During a recent interview with London's Sun, Rory's mom said, "We don't want any more children, so the idea of sleeping under a giant fertility symbol is rather worrying."

Indeed ma'am it is.

Natural Selection

Here's one for the Darwin Awards.
A woman jumped... was not pushed... did not slip... on her own accord, jumped into the polar bear enclosure at the Berlin Zoo.
Media are calling it a polar bear attack. She was bitten several times and is in serious condition. Do I feel sorry for her? Not one bit. The enclosure is there to keep the bears in and you out. Again my mantra is "buy the ticket... take the ride" and she's lucky her ride didn't end as a mid-day polar bear snack. See picture to the right. If you like things that move, not unlike the polar bears themselves,
here's the video.

Back to You ...ARGGGHHH!!!!!

If you're like me, God help you if you are, then you derive some primal satisfaction from seeing the "on-the-street", "you ask we investigatee" TV reporters encountering people, animals, vehicles and elements they can't control and/or are ill-equipped to deal with. Subsequently ending up looking like the stunt man/woman that they are to the in-studio crew- who are laughing off camera. I'm just saying be smart when perusing the story...REPORT the News DON'T become the story.
