Five Thoughts on a Friday – The “Lucky Friday” Edition

Happy Friday everyone. Yep, it’s that time again. Time to run through the weird, the strange, the dumb, and the stupid. Heck, we’ll even throw in silly at no extra charge! And yes, as this week’s post title alludes to, today is Friday the 13th. (You know, that may be the first time I’ve used “alludes to” in a post!)

  1. Given today’s date… this is hilarious. It’s Friday the thirteenth. And you’re about to board your flight to Helsinki Finland when you notice a couple of things. Namely, your flight number is 666, and the airport code you are flying to is HEL. Yep. Somebody queue up the AC/DC song….
  2. Wow… It really is true, you know? We humans try to add extra sugar to everything! As in the recent molasses spill near Honolulu, Hawaii. Now… yes, I understand it’s not cool that this spill happened and killed the fish. But it still made for a lighthearted joke. I could have cone with the other angle from the story… where authorities are saying that the molasses in the water that’s killing the fish poses no threat to humans… except for all the sharks, barracuda, and eels the dead fish are expected to draw in. Yeah, a shark poses no risk to humans. As long as you’re still on land (Unless you have a Sharknado). And uh.. stay away from anything labelled “sweetened fish” for a while, I’d say.
  3. Speaking of things in the water that can harm you…. How about this one? A a rare brain-eating amoeba has been found in a municipal Louisiana water supply. But don’t worry, “the water is safe to drink, state officials said, although they cautioned against getting water in the nose”. Oh, that’s reassuring. And that’s why… I don’t always drink in Louisiana, but when I do, I prefer alcohol!
  4. Next up, it’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s….. actually…. it’s a frog. So this is what Kermit has been up to these days. A frog recently photo bombed a NASA spaceship launch. Let’s be honest, Kermit was just looking to join up with the Pigs in Space.
  5. And closing out on the NASA theme…. Geek alert time! NASA has reported that Voyager I has officially left our solar system. Not only that, but its also sending back sounds!
    Frankly, I think this is really cool. But after listening to the sounds, I do kind of have to wonder….. Haven’t we seen this movie already?

Okay folks, that’s five and I’m off to see what the weekend brings. So, this one is for all of the weekend warriors out there. Even if you’re just waging war with the weeds in your lawn.

Five Thoughts on a Friday -“Hello Everybody”

Hello everybody!  I’ve finally been able to make a return appearance writing for the blog.  So since, Beer is off on one of his famous boondoggles, I’m starting this blog off with a video to just say hello everybody….

1.  Since it’s been a very somber week, I really don’t want
to bring anyone else down any further. However, after reading about this individual I need to let people know about him.  I do have to admit that I’m not sure I’d be hanging out with this guy though going forward. I mean I’ve heard of bad luck, but I think this fella needs to lock himself in his house and not leave for a little while.

2.  It’s a miracle.  How could 2 teams, unknown “experts” and sports fans have not figured out the problem?  Man, I’m glad this guy knew what to do and why is he not employeed by a team somewhere if this is true??

3. Yeah, I got nothing for this clip.  It just cracks me up.

4. You know, you’d think as humans we’d learn from our mistakes. Heck, you’d think that we’d learn from others mistakes even better because we all know we like to say stuff like, “Man, what were they thinking?” In the wake of some dumb advertising choices lately, you’d think you’d really watch your procedures and protocols. I’m guessing this ad agency wasn’t doing that.

5.  Okay, I’d like to take a moment and apologizes to our normal readers.  Those that have been with us through the years know my hatred for Hollywoods remakes.  I’m about to eat crow people….this looks like a fantastic summer “shut the brain down” enjoyable movie that I can’t wait for:

Okay folks.  Sorry as this is not up to the normal Beer standards as he’s off on his boondoggle and I’ve got to get my typing fingers back in the groove of things.  I think I need to finish this post though with a song in honor of the Beer having fun. Hmmm, I think he’ll be using this song title alot:
