Adam Hills, the above TV host, offered Westboro Baptist members a free trip to Iraq to protest real Christian persecution. They accepted! I really hope this guy provides the air fare for those screwballs
to actually go to Iraq. In fact I bet if Mr. Hills sets up a fund to send them that the donations would roll in nonstop. What a great idea, kudos sir!
Back in the late 1970s, Bill Tolle of Woodlawn, Ohio figured out a way to use empty beer cans to heat his home in the winter. Basically he made a solar heater, with the empty cans trapping the sun's heat. But the beer can angle perked the media's interest.
You know how in cartoons and comedy movies, a person will accidentally employ an ejection seat and go for a thrill ride through the air, only to land safely...?

I'm curious what went on at this camp. Was it just like a normal camp but with plastic sheets on the bed? Did it actually help bed-wetters overcome their problem?
Mars needs petroleum byproducts!
A 1955 U.S. Navy training film. Having watched it, I'm now ready to live off the grid.

was great. But I'd pay twice as much to see a feature-length version of this.
We have all heard cautionary tales about hawks or large owls picking up small dogs as prey while the dogs are outside. But one would think a pet would be safe in the house AND inside a closed cage, maybe not so much. Last Sunday an owl
flew into a tenth floor apartment through the balcony door, opened a bird cage, killed one canary and traumatized the other one inside. The pet owner found the owl still in her home, then it flew back out and nonchalantly perched on her balcony for a photo op. The least it could do after killing her pet!
Skinny people aren't often recognized as being part of an oppressed minority. Back in 1972, Barry Goldsmith tried to change this by announcing the Skinny Liberation movement and issuing an "emaciation proclamation." But his efforts don't seem to have changed public attitudes significantly. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find a picture of Mr. Goldsmith. But it sounds like he was definitely quite skinny.

Evangelical ventriloquism: I tend to suspect no one does it better than Beverly Massegee
. (Ie, no one else does it at all.)
I could not find any clips of her and "Erick," so you'll have to content yourself with her "singing."
