Interspecies dog grooming

This page has some great example of dog grooming for that trendy inter-species look.

Can’t have a pony? No problem, make a Poodle-Pony:

And you can always get that old West flavor with this lovely Bison cut:

The giant panda may be close to extinction, but fuzzy dogs are plentiful:

Stop intolerant taxi cab drivers

I’ts sad that religious fundamentalist taxi cab drivers are bringing intolerance to American shores.

Today, Jewish people say that it’s difficult to hail a cab in Manhattan unless they take off their yarmulke’s, and in some cities cab drivers will whiz past women because it’s “beneath” them to serve a female.

Some fundamentalist zealots embrace intolerance and hatred

It’s high time that Americans stopped tolerating intolerant people and started stand up against anybody who openly thrusts their sexism and racism upon the travelling public.

Discrimination in San Fransicso

Just last week I got into a taxi cab in San Francisco with Janet and Noel the dog, only to hear the cab driver get all upset and say the big lie:

“I’m allergic to dogs”.

I know it’s a lie because it’s a well-known issue among Seeing Eye dog users. Intolerant cab drivers are taught to lie and say that they are allergic so that they can ignore the Americans with Disabilities Act, harass blind people, and impose their beliefs upon the public.

Discrimination is discrimination; it’s always based on hatred and intolerance.

Because we work extensively with blind people who use guide dogs, we know how some cultures consider dogs to be “unclean” and how taxi cab drivers openly refuse to pick-up abybody with a Seeing Eye dog.

It’s against the law to do this, but that does not seem to matter. This article has a long list of offenses, and this story is typical:

“New Orleans taxi driver Mahmoud Awad, got so incensed at his passenger trying to bring a dog into the cab that he physically yanked her out of it by the arm while yelling

“No dog, No dog, Get out, get out.”

When charged with abuse, he replied by pointing out that “the saliva of dogs invalidates the ritual purity needed for prayer”.

But this intolerance problem is not just limited to dogs, taxi cab drivers have been seen openly discriminate against Jews, women and people who drink alcohol.

Treating women like garbage

Awhile back from some telephone caller ordered Janet to put a man on the phone! You can read the details here.

Janet told him politely that he was not worthy of speaking to a man, and it’s a darn good thing that she did not put me on the line, else this creep would have learned some new English cuss words.

America is built upon religious tolerance, but anyone who serves the public cannot thrust their own belief system upon the travelling public.

Do not tolerate intolerance

In Miami, I’ve witnessed people getting off of cruise ships with boxes of alcohol only to find that a cab drivers refuse to take them because they find it offensive.

These intolerant prople show open contempt for Americans, oinsisting that we kowtow to their demands.

Please watch this video, cab drivers who impose their culture upon the travelling public:

Listen to these people and judge for yourself.

It’s beyond offensive that zealots believe that freedom of speech allows them to impose their beliefs upon others.

I’d like to see legislation making it a crime for any taxi cab driver to discriminate against anybody.

Funny automated language translation software

Back in the 1980’s the CIA was developing software that translated Russion into English, and English into Russian.

There is the funny story about when they translating the saying “The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak” into Russian and back again into English where it read “The vodka is good but the meat is rotten”.

Well, this happens all the time on Babelfish, and the results can be hilarious!

Check this out, the translation party.

Leroy and Leighroy

A fat redneck woman walks into the welfare office, trailed by her 15 kids.

Redneck Barbie

Looking art the 15 kids, the welfare guy exclaims “WOW!”.

“Are they all your’in?”

“Yep, they is all mine,” the flustered momma sighs, having heard that question a thousand times before.

Then she says, “Sit down Leroy.” and as if my magic, all of the children rush to find seats.

“Well,” says the social worker, “then you must be here to sign up. I’ll need all your children’s names.”

“Well, to keep it simple, the boys are all named ‘Leroy’ and the girls are all named ‘Leighroy’.”

In disbelief, the case worker. “Are you serious? They’re ALL named Leroy?”

Their momma replied, “Well, yes-it makes it easier.

When it’s time to get them out of bed and ready for school, I yell, ‘Leroy!’ An when it’s time for dinner, I just yell ‘Leroy!’ an they all comes a runnin.

An’ if I need to stop the kid who’s running into the street, I just yells Leroy’ and all of them stop.

It’s the smartest idea I ever had, namin’ them all Leroy..”

The social worker thinks this over for a bit, then wrinkles her forehead and says tentatively, “But what if you just want ONE kid to come, and not the whole bunch?”

“Then I call them by their last names.”

Bob Dylan mistaken for a homeless man!

At 68 years old, Bob Dylan (a.k.a. Robert Zimmerman) still blows wind, being detained by the police who did buy his stupid story that he used to be a famous musician . . .

Bob Dylan was detained by police in Long Branch, N.J. last month, when a young officer failed to recognize him, police said. The officer proceeded to go to earnest lengths to ensure the hooded, disheveled, rain-soaked music legend was, in fact, who he said he was.”

“We see a lot of people on our beat, and I wasn’t sure if he came from one of our hospitals or something,” Buble said. . .

“OK Bob, why don’t you get in the car and we’ll drive to the hotel and go verify this?’ ” she said she told him. “I put him in the back of the car.

To be honest with you, I didn’t really believe this was Bob Dylan. It never crossed my mind that this could really be him.”

Baby deer day care

Wild Does love it here at the ranch.

Our ranch has become know to all of the woodland critters as a safe haven, and recently we have noticed that Momma deer’s are dropping their does off for free deer day care:

You can walk right past a hidden doe and not see them

We have dog fence around our acreage, so it’s a very safe place for deer, and the horses don’t mind them at all, they share the pasture!

This baby has been in the pasture for three days now, and we are guessing that she was separated from Momma deer while being pursued by a predator.

I guess we have a temporary pet doe, at least until she is strong enough (or scared enough) to leap over our fence back into our woods . . .

Baby does can leap 3 times their height

Today I saw three babies out there, it’s now a deer day care center . . .

Neanderthal extinction theories

Neanderthal extinction: Do they walk among us?

There are several theories about what happened to the Neanderthals:

Neanderthals were killed off – There is an interesting article in TIME on Shanidar 3, a Neanderthal who appears to have been killed by homo sapiens. Unfortunately, it’s bad science, since the rib of Shanidar 3 only shows a stone spear mark, with no evidence that it was inflicted by a modern man. It’s just as likely that Shanidar’s wife killed him . . .

Neanderthals Melded with Homo Sapiens – This the “Clan of the Cave Bears” theory that Neanderthals interbred with modern humans, becoming today’s Europeans.

Neanderthals became natural extinct – Still others believe that the Neanderthals died off naturally.

Nothing happened – Neanderthals live among us – Some say that the Neanderthals moved to France, where they live today. Me, I believe that Neanderthals still walk among us, I’ve seen them with my own eyes.

Neanderthals are not just the stuff of Hollywood

The stocky build, low intelligence, excessive body hair, heavy brow, the receding forehead and chin, all Neanderthal features, which can still be seen today in some modern humans.

Some picture the 21st century Neanderthal as a cross between an Arab terrorist and Rosie O’Dnnell:

A 21st Century Neanderthal

I also saw a live Neanderthal on the streets of New York city, swear to God.

Neanderthals are not that different from French people

And I’ve seen a few Army soldiers who I suspected have Neanderthal blood:

There’s crazy, and then there’s Army crazy

Neanderthal descendents in Hokkaido?

It’s hard not to stare at a living Neanderthal, but they exist. I took an advanced computer class with a real live Neanderthal in the 1980’s in Silicon Valley, and he had all of the classic Neanderthal features. Sadly, I did not have the guts to ask to take his picture.

However, I did manage to strunke up a chat, and he said that he was one from Hokkaido, incidentally, the home of the Minatogawa Man, where an Asian form of the Neanderthals has been found.

This article says that DNA studies suggest that natives Ainu people of Hokkaido have a mixture Mongoloid, Neanderthaloid, and Australoid blood. . . .

How did Neanderthals look?

With only skeletal remains, there is a debate about how a live Neanderthal would look. Some say that Neanderthals had African features, but I’m so so sure:

Do Neanderthals remain today?

This article suggests that Neanderthals were ginger, with bright red hair and freckles:

Some cite evidence that Neanderthals are ginger

Somewhere, there should be preserved Neanderthal hair, since Woolly Mammoth hair has been recovered from over 10,000 years ago. They have completed the Neanderthal genome, so it sould be interesting to see the new research on the subject . . .

Squirrelize your photos!

After this squirrel sneaked into time-shutter photo, this photo has gone viral, all over the interweb:

The original squirrel photo

Now, some creative fellow made this web site to allow you to add Mr. squirrel (squirrelizer) any photo you desire!

Try the Squirrelizer

You can squirrelize any photo you desire:

Add Mr. squirrel to any photo

This “squirrel new” replaces “squirrel classic”, and we have yet to see a squirrelizer for this squirrely photo:

Squirrel “classic” is now obselete . . .

Inside the H1-B Visa scam

Put American computer professionals to work!

Today there are millions of qualified Americans who want these high-paying Information Systems jobs, which they cannot get because of the H1B visa people who will work for pennies on the dollar.

Jay Leno offers up this tidbit on the extent of the H1B Visa fraud:

Some experts say that H1B visa program is rife with fraud and posers.

A U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services [USCIS] study, H-1B Benefit Fraud & Compliance Assessment published in September 2008, found a 27 percent rate of fraud in the H-1B visa program.

Mommy, a foreign poser took my computer job!

The Capital Immigration Law Group notes that H1B fraud is widespread, about 20%, but I suspect that the real figure is far higher:

“In our opinion, the results are fairly striking. . . Upon further review, it appeared that 19% of the H-1Bs which were already reviewed and approved by USCIS turned out to involve fraud.”

Many H1B Visa workers have graduated from “diploma mills”, and they produce computer scientists who don’t even know how to write a computer program, engineers who cannot even do basic design, and “experts” who have no expertise whatsoever.

In this article “A Fraud Most Foul”, we see that America has plenty of skilled IT workers and that it’s not necessary to import anyone to full these jobs.

It’s a lose-lose situation. Americans lose jobs, and the phony overseas experts are exploited by greedy corporations.

It’s also time to start enforcing personal responsibility and send home those tens of thousands of fraudulent H1B posers who gained United States citizenship based upon their fraudulent credentials.
