Sea Monster Washes Up On Beach?

Image

 

Does the fabled Loch Ness monster have a long lost uncle? 

A MYSTERIOUS and grotesque, nine-metre long “sea monster” has washed up on a New Zealand beach.

This headline from http://www.express.co.uk  grabbed my attention this morning. I figured it was worth sharing. A video of the gruesome find was posted on YouTube by user Elizabeth Ann, who requested help in identifying it.

I have posted the video up on my webpage located here, http://andymancan.batcave.net/

The remains are in pretty poor shape so it is rather hard to say what the heck it is. The one thing that I think we can all agree on is that it contains some rather nasty looking chompers.

When she posted the video she included this comment:

“This strange marine creature was washed up dead on Pukehina Beach in the Bay of Plenty last week after some violent storms.”

“Can anyone help identify what it is? It has a huge head and teeth with rudimentary flippers. 

“It seems about 9M in length but the lower part of the body is probably mainly entrails from an attack.”

My guess is a small whale? hard to say  

However, scientists who have bravely taken a closer look at the beast have since said the creature could just be a dead Orca, better known as a Killer Whale.

I like the idea of it being a sea monster alot better! It’s anyones guess.

Have a great day,

Andy

Ug here we go again, “Man Cuts Off Own Penis During Fight With Girlfriend In Taiwan: Report.”

Image 

Much like looking at a car accident and then wishing you didn’t. This guy makes Charlie Sheen seem pretty tame. Today from huffingtonpost.com, 

– “A drunk man in Jilong, Taiwan reportedly used scissors to cut off his own penis and testicles during an argument with his girlfriend, according to Chinese newspaper Kwong Wah Yit Poh, as translated by The Toronto Star Online.”

 I sometimes get upset and regret my actions but this fellow really takes the cake. I really wonder how this action was going to solve anything. This next bit from the article really seals the deal… sadly.

– “The 46-year-old, whose name has not been released, reportedly flushed his love muscle down the toilet before his girlfriend rushed him to the hospital. By the time he got there, he had fallen into a coma due to blood loss, according to Rocket News 24’s translation of the Japanese-language website Big Globe News.

The only bright side to this story that I can see is that he won’t be some poor kid’s father any time soon. Was this guy on drugs? I sure hope so. 

-“With only 1.2 inches of manhood left, the man is reportedly still able to urinate. He has reportedly emerged from his coma and is expected to recover.

Is this story too bizarre to be believed? Maybe, but it’s not the first time a man intentionally dismembered his member. In June 2012, a California man severed his own penis with an X-acto knife.”

For all the men reading this with crossed leg’s right now, I feel the same way.

When life hands you lemons….

Image The age old line, “When life hands you lemons, make lemon-aid.”

“I believe that if life gives you lemons, you should make lemonade… And try to find somebody whose life has given them vodka, and have a party.” – Ron White

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade” is a proverbial phrase used to encourage optimism and a can-do attitude in the face of adversity or misfortune. “Lemons” in this expression is used in the informal sense of the word, to indicate an unfortunate or inadequate situation, a meaning which probably stems from the sour and acidic taste of unsweetened lemon. “Lemonade” on the other hand, is a sweetened form of this same acerbic fruit, and so in the context of this expression, conveys the potential for pleasure and opportunity in seemingly bad situations.

Life can be a bit of a grind at times. We all have our up moments and our down times. I tend to forget at tiimes when I am down that we all have those bits in life. It all comes down to what you do in response in such events. A  little story to help us all remember.

I once went on job interview where upon arrival I parked my car, got out, locked the door and immediately locked my thumb in the door. My keys were already in my purse. I yelled for help but no one came. People just looked at me and kept walking. I finally managed to twist and turn and get my keys out of my purse. I went ahead and went into the interview for a receptionist position. During the interview the interviewer asked me to take a typing test. I explained that I couldn’t take the test because of my thumb. I offered to come back the next day to take the typing test. The interviewer got me a cup of ice water and I soaked my thumb while we continued the interview. The next day I got a call from the company. I was hired without a typing test. They said anyone who could stay as calm and collected as I was with a thumb swollen and bruised was someone they certainly wanted to run their front office. I was with the company for three years and left as Office Manager. – Bobbie M.

The American Gerbil Society’s annual pageant

Image

BEDFORD, Mass. —

The American Gerbil Society’s annual pageant brought dozens of rodents scurrying to New England this weekend for a chance to win “top gerbil.”

I found this today, and I am left wondering if maybe the cable t.v. went out in Bedford. There is a  society for a twelve dollar critter? Is it just me, or does that seem a bit extreme.

From the article:  “The Bedford competition called for agility demonstrations in which the gerbils must overcome obstacles and race to the end of a course. Breeders of the small animals vie for coveted ribbons based on body type and agility.”

In my world they are not that far removed from rats.  I guess everyone needs a hobby. That or clearly they need better television programming.  Not to seem rude but I do not see this being a big tourism event. “Honey pack the bags, we are going to gerbil fest!”

May the best gerbil win.
