Five Thoughts on a Friday – The “Call it a week already!” edition

Howdy folks, and welcome back to another edition of Five Thoughts.  Been a busy, wacky week here. Glad to see it coming to a close. So with that being said, let’s see what wacky things we can talk about.

  1. Jumping right in with news that strikes a bit close to home, proof that suicide bomber/terrorists are not real bright sometimes…
    Well, the headline sort of says it all, but not quite:
    For al-Qaida, Detroit was just the cheapest flight. That’s right, it was just the cheapest ticket they could find. Hey, guess times are tough all over. But wait! There’s More! Included in that gem of a story…
    He paid CASH!! FOR A ROUND TRIP TICKET!! Ok, I get the round trip part. One way might tip someone off,  but the paying cash?  Seriously, if you’re planning on offing yourself why are you really worried about the price? Or stiffing the credit card company on the bill? What, he was worried about what it might do to his credit score?
  2. There’s upset with with folks at the drive through, and then there’s shooting an air gun into the drive through, and at the police who show up because you shot up the drive through, upset. Over what, you might ask? A price increase on a Taco Bell burrito. First off, it only went up to $1.49 (from $0.99) so it wasn’t going to break the bank. Second of all, you are in SAN ANTONIO TEXAS!!! I’ve been to SA multiple times, I can think of at least a dozen better places to get a burrito. The fact that someone in San Antonio chooses Taco Bell for their Tex Mex fix says all you need to know about their mental state, or lack thereof. I’d have felt better if the story at least mentioned alcohol being involved.
  3. Speaking of drinking…..
    Sammy Hagar says abducted by aliens
    Yes, you read that correctly. Sammy said in his new book that he thinks he’s been abducted by Aliens. So I have to wonder…
    Maybe Sammy has been sampling a bit too much of his tequila maybe? Remember that quote from Scarface kids, “Don’t get high on your own supply”.
  4. This one worries me, but it’s wacky in a cool (pun intended) technology kind of way. A solar power, remote control, flying shade provider for the World Cup in Qatar. I can see some sort of failure causing it to fall into the stadium. I’m being honest here, I know Qatar has a lot of money, but do they have acceptable safety standards for something like that? It’s just hovering there. If it falls… That’s Bad.
  5. And finally… wacky in a scary, “holy crap how the heck is that even possible?” type of way from the Tsunami in Japan. It appears, it a was porpoise, not a dolphin but still. They found it in a rice field in Japan! Alive. Thankfully, they got the little critter back into the sea.

Ok, that’s five and I’m ready to call it a week already. Maybe I’ll have the King do the post next week. Just for fun.

And now… to get something stuck in your head for the rest of the day…. They call him Flipper!

Have a great weekend folks!
