Fight at a Wedding in 1968



u/tsqueeze posted this pic yesterday.  He explained: I don't remember all the details, but I think my great-uncle told me that some guys who somehow knew the bride showed up without being invited. Eventually, when the band took a break, they sat down in the band's seats and started messing around with their instruments. Someone went up to confront them, then someone pulled someone off the stage and all hell broke loose. Maybe it was a bad omen, as the marriage didn't last. But what cracks me up is that the official wedding photographer saw the fight and took the picture.

Berenstain or Berenstein Bears?




Berenstain Bears debate is a case of Schrodinger’s nostalgia 

If you waste any time on the Internet at all, you have no doubt come across the Berenstain Bears Alternate Reality Theory, a feverish discussion that burbled and boiled and peaked and subsided within the space of a few days last week.

The theory goes like this: The popular series of illustrated children’s books is officially called The Berenstain Bears (named after their creators), but that can’t be right, because we all remember them being spelled “Berenstein,” which means not that we were all wrong but that their spelling changed at some point in history, a point at which two time streams or parallel realities diverged. In other words, we just jumped tracks somehow and the other reality in which they are still called Berenstein still exists somewhere. You might think of them as Schrodinger’s Bears: simultaneously Berenstain and Berenstein. Read more here.

Another Chance

80,000 blondes meet in a football stadium for a "Blondes Are Not Stupid" Convention.






The leader says, "We are all here today to prove to the world that blondes are not stupid. Can I have a volunteer?"

A blonde gingerly works her way through the crowd and steps up to the stage.

The leader asks her, "What is 15 plus 15?"

After 15 or 20 seconds she says, "Eighteen!"

Obviously everyone is a little disappointed. Then 80,000 blondes start cheering, "Give her another chance! Give her another chance!"

The leader says, "Well since we've gone to the trouble of getting 80,000 of you in one place and we have the world- wide press and global broadcast media here, gee, uh, I guess we can give her another chance."

So he asks, "What is 5 plus 5?"

After nearly 30 seconds she eventually says, "Ninety?"

The leader is quite perplexed, looks down and just lets out a dejected sigh -- everyone is disheartened - the blonde starts crying and the 80,000 girls begin to yell and wave their hands shouting, "GIVE HER ANOTHER CHANCE! GIVE HER ANOTHER CHANCE!"

The leader, unsure whether or not he is doing more harm than damage, eventually says, "Ok! Ok! Just one more chance -- What is 2 plus 2?"

The girl closes her eyes, and after a whole minute eventually says, "Four?"

Throughout the stadium pandemonium breaks out as all 80,000 girls jump to their feet, wave their arms, stomp their feet and scream... "Give her another chance! Give her another chance!"

Devils Hole in Nevada

Water recedes at Devils Hole in Nevada after an earthquake. This phenomenon occurs when earthquakes happen as far away as Japan.



This video shows what happens when a 7.3 magnitude earthquake is detected in Oaxaca, Mexico. There has been one extensive exploration of it, and it was a body retrieval.

http://www.theinertia.com/surf/a-conversation-with-the-king-of-abalonia/2/

That's an interview with the diver who did it.

Summary of the interview:

Two people dove into devils hole and were never seen again. During the recovery dive, the diver found a fin and a dive light but not the bodies. At about 300-350 feet, the "tube" of devils hole opened up into a large cavern. The diver was already pushing safety limits and breaking records so he did not continue to explore and find out how far it went. He did, however, let out wire that he claims equaled the depth he had already dove without hitting the bottom, although he also says that he felt a current tugging on it, which is somehow even scarier.

The hole obviously connects to some kind of underground aquifer, but how extensive it is is not known. Devils hole actually has a higher salinity than the ocean, so it is unlikely they are connected. So, what the fuck is going on? We have no clue.

Here is a HD video of divers going in to monitor the Pupfish population.  Devil's Hole Nevada is the only home of the Devil's Hole pupfish probably the rarest and one of the most endangered fish in the world.

The Strange Reason Nearly Every Film Ends by Saying It’s Fiction





Virtually every film in modern memory ends with some variation of the same disclaimer: “This is a work of fiction. Any similarity to actual persons, living or dead, or actual events, is purely coincidental.” The cut-and-paste legal rider must be the most boring thing in every movie that features it. Who knew its origins were so lurid?


For that bit of boilerplate, we can indirectly thank none other than Grigori Rasputin, the famously hard-to-assassinate Russian mystic and intimate of the last, doomed Romanovs. It all started when an exiled Russian prince sued MGM in 1933 over the studio’s Rasputin biopic, claiming that the American production did not accurately depict Rasputin’s murder. And the prince ought to have known, having murdered him.

Girl doesn't know laws, thinks she does, gets herself arrested.





This girl is annoying to the max. 

From Daily of the Day:

The video is a couple of years old, but I just stumbled across it.  It depicts a traffic stop in California, where the driver is being arrested for driving without a license.  The female passenger begins filming, and explaining condescendingly that the driver is a “free inhabitant” as defined in Article IV of the Articles of Confederation, and is not required to have a license.  After finishing with the arrest, the officer asks her to step out of the vehicle because it will be towed, and the girl refuses to cooperate, again claiming herself to be a free inhabitant of the world, not belonging to any country and not subject to United States laws.
Things jump to a whole new level when she pushes far enough to be arrested herself, and she goes full-blown nutcase, screaming “rape” as she’s being handcuffed (as though her own video evidence is going to somehow back that up).

There are a few things wrong with her frame of mind here.  First and most obvious, the Articles of Confederation were in effect until 1789, when the United States Constitution went into effect, supplanting the Articles as the law of the land.  She was using as her sole argument a law that had been obsolete and no longer valid for more than 200 years.  Second, she doesn’t seem to understand the meaning or purpose of “free inhabitants.”  The article was written so that, prior to forming a single country with a single federal government containing the individual states, citizens of one state could safely and freely travel among all the states and still receive all the rights of the citizens of those states.  Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story said in a ruling in 1833:
“It is obvious, that, if the citizens of each state were to be deemed aliens to each other, they could not take, or hold real estate, or other privileges, except as other aliens. The intention of this clause was to confer on them, if one may so say, a general citizenship; and to communicate all the privileges and immunities, which the citizens of the same state would be entitled to under the like circumstances.”
Somehow, people who claim to be “free inhabitants” extend the terminology of the actual article (which again – expired more than 200 years ago) to mean that they are free to enjoy all the privileges and immunities as citizens of the state they are in, but are exempt from following any of the laws of that state.  I’m not sure where that mental jump comes in, or how they actually think they can get away with “all the privileges, none of the penalties.”  They also seem to miss a key requisite – you have to be a citizen of a state first, to be considered a free inhabitant of any of the states.  “Inhabitant of the earth” doesn’t get you there.

Ball's Pyramid is an erosional remnant of a shield volcano and caldera that formed about 6.4 million years ago.[1] It lies 20 kilometres (12 mi) southeast of Lord Howe Island in the Pacific Ocean. It is 562 metres (1,844 ft) high, while measuring only 1,100 metres (3,600 ft) in length and 300 metres (980 ft) across, making it the tallest volcanic stack in the world.[2] Ball's Pyramid is part of the Lord Howe Island Marine Park in Australia. wiki

Wild Bananas


Wild-type bananas are found throughout Southeast Asia, but are mostly inedible to humans.  With hard seeds studding the fruit, wild-types have little fruit that is eatable, rendering the wild-types relatively useless for their fruit. Occasionally, however, wild-type bananas produced mutant offspring, which bore seedless fruits.  Seedless mutants became the ancestors of domesticated bananas when early humans specially bred the fruit through root offshoots, or “suckers,” which appear at the base of the plants.  Humans reproduced bananas from the suckers “vegetatively,” that is, by separating the offshoot from the mother pseudostem, and then replanting the suckers as a separate plant.  Thus, the propagation of domestic bananas formed genetically identical plants, all of the edible, seedless variety.  Read more about them here

Fisherman found this two-foot-long pearl which weighs ~75 lbs


Fisherman found this two-foot-long pearl which weighs ~75 lbs. inside a giant clam ten years ago. He kept it under his bed ever since. It may be worth $100 Million (USD).


A fisherman in the Philippines is happy as a clam after discovering that a mammoth pearl he stashed away for 10 years under his bed is worth a cool $100 million.
The lucky angler, who has not been identified, discovered the 75-pound pearl — believed to be the biggest ever — in the sea off Palawan Island, the Mirror of the UK reported.
Unaware of the giant pearl’s value, he kept it as a good-luck piece under his bed until a fire in his home forced him to move. The superstitious fishermen then decided to hand it over to the tourism office in remote Puerto Princesa, city officials said.  Read more here

Express Car Wash







A California driver may have set a record for fastest car wash.
A 94-year-old man is caught on camera speeding through the Quick Quack Car Wash in Sacramento at an estimated 40 miles per hour last Friday.
The man paid for his car wash, but claimed he could not take his foot off the pedal as he was driving through.
Workers rushed out to try and stop him, but the car crashed through the equipment, causing an estimated $100,000 worth of damage.
No one was injured and the man walked away without a scratch.
