Links Day

Today I really don't have a lot to blog about. It's another nice sunny day, my side was bugging me last night so sleep was hard to come by. In short, it's just another day for me. The only things I will have a go at, depending upon the temps, are the new/old trailer and chopping an old fire extinguisher in half. The extinguisher is for a friend's son who likes to smelt aluminum.  

I took a look this morning at the goings on around the globe. Some things are good, some are bad and some things are ugly. 

One of the first things to jump out at me this morning was an incident in Baton Rouge. This morning several (7?) police officers were shot with two (three?) being killed. The reports are a little sketchy right now, the news media are floating anything rumor wise as news. Several years ago I picked up a novel that scared the crap out of me. The novel, Unintended Consequences, details how people, when pushed to far, push back. maybe it's just me but these actions that have taken place against police in the past few weeks look a lot like stuff that was detailed in that book.

Meanwhile in New Zealand we have an example of great customer service. This restaurant owner dealt with a robber by ignoring him and serving his customers. 

Some people have cats, like us, as pets. Some people have dogs as pets. There are others who have fish and birds and a few even have snakes as pets which is also fine. Then there is this person... 

Looks like this guy had some explaining to do to the police, fire department, the guys who recover bodies from waterways, etc, etc. All this explaining because he wanted a slice of pizza

Summertime, a time when freezies are at their most valuable and when there's value there's the risk of theft. Just think of this the next time you stop for one of these wonderful summer treats, you may be buying a bootlegged item.

Well it had to happen, there has been the first incident of "shots fired" while playing pokeman go. Why? Because, Florida...

Here's something to ask yourself, have you ever been so drunk that you sneaked into a jail

Enough of this frivolity for now that's a wrap from up here north of disorder.
