Sydney funnel-web spider, male

This is a male Sydney funnel-web spider, Atrax robustus. Look at those freakin’ fangs! Holy Jesus!

It is exceptionally venomous in it’s bite. The venom can kill a person within 15 minutes. That is obviously not a good thing.

The bad news is the that it is currently projected to imminently become a major invasion-level problem for Australia now that the rains are wetting up everything after the ordeal of the horrific heat and fires.

Godspeed, Australia.

This audio original and full clip from Y94 Playhouse Fargo, ND radio station was too funny to not find a way for more people to hear it so thus, this video. A lady asks for help getting deer crossing signs moved to lower traffic areas. “The government can guide deer to lower traffic areas” ha! ha! ha! ha! ha! Kudos to Y94 Playhouse and Donna for the joy that you have given many through laughter.

Obviously a Democrat.

 

 

White Wolf

From 1785 to 1922, White Wolf, also known as Chief John Smith is considered the oldest Native American to have lived – 137 years.

Well, learning this is most fabulous, I must say! Astounding, really. I do believe that this is the oldest individual I have ever become aware of.

Yes, massive respect!

Could I possibly live to 2092?

 

 

goddess

Gaze upon this gorgeous creature.

I do and it makes me wish I wasn’t so totally, 100%, clueless.

I’ve only had brief encounters, and those weren’t for love, no, they were just for my tongue. It’s been decades. Long, awful decades of nothingness. I have no social skills. None. And even less with God’s most desirable…

And, I imagine, so it will remain.

Until I blow my head off…

 

 

place of worship

I desperately want this vision of deliciously delectable perfection to be what I gaze upon every waking minute of my life from the here and now onwards to eternity. …The ultimate place of worship.

This is the absolute truth.

God’s curse on my Soul won’t let there be any chance of it happening, though, this I know.

But I can dream.

Ooh, I just love this… whenever new pieces of the puzzle are found I get a thrill.

You simply must know that there were at least as many species of all forms of life around back then as there are now… and due to the conditions present in those days potentially a lot more than exist today … the scarcity is simply because fossilization is not a common occurrence. Not in the least.

This is me, several thousand years ago, holding a Bolex.

I am not sure I even remember it … no, it’s true, I cannot recall it at all … mind’s fading real fast. Real fast.

Sigh.

Not that ever came of it.

Nothing I’ve ever done has amounted to anything.

Maybe taking care of Clare, but, I did that all wrong, too.

We MUST NOT let them succeed. It is vital to the survival of our nation and the security of the world.

Their failure is mandatory.

I got to go upstairs and give my gifts to my Angels and hang with them and the lovely mommy’s parents.

My princess loved her new outfits as did her Mom and all of them were highly praised by everyone. Which caused me to get warm fuzzies. And to cap it off I got some gifts, too!

The Gatling Gun is a classic American icon that came about around the time of the US Civil War. The Gatling Gun design has endured the test of time as it’s still used today, but by a different name — the “mini-gun”. The mini-gun is basically a Gatling Gun with an electric motor. Tippmann Armory has introduced a new 9mm Gatling Gun called the TG-900 and we’re here to show you what it’s all about!

A Trip Down Market Street, 1906 – With Sound!

Mike Upchurch
Jan 6, 2014

Historic pre-earthquake San Francisco, 1906, with full sound design.

Background:
This film was shot on April 14, 1906, just four days before the San Francisco earthquake and fire, to which the negative was nearly lost. It was produced by moving picture photographers the Miles brothers: Harry, Herbert, Earle and Joe. Harry J. Miles hand-cranked the Bell & Howell camera which was placed on the front of a cablecar during filming on Market Street from 8th, in front of the Miles Studios, to the Ferry building. A few days later the Miles brothers were en route to New York when they heard news of the earthquake. They sent the negative to NY, and returned to San Francisco to discover that their studios were destroyed.

The origin of the film was an enigma for many decades, and it was long thought to have been shot in September of 1905, after being dated as such by the Library of Congress based on the state of construction of several buildings. However, in 2009 and 2010, film historian David Kiehn, co-founder of Niles Film Museum in Niles, California, dated the film to the spring of 1906 from automobile registrations and weather records. Kiehn eventually found promotional materials from the film’s original release and dated the film to April 14th, 1906, and finally gave credit to the filmmakers, the Miles Brothers.

Technical Aspects:

Film:
Sound mix: Silent
Color: B&W
Aspect Ratio; 1.33 : 1
Negative Format: 35 mm
Printed Format: 35 mm
Cinematographic Process: Spherical
Camera: Hand-cranked Bell & Howell

Video format:
HDTV 1080I (1920 x 1080)
Pixel Aspect: Square
Editing Timebase 29.97
Compressor : H.264

Audio:
28 tracks, stereo. (without panning)

Restoration:
This version was transferred from a new 35mm print made from a restored 35mm negative, taken from the 1906-era 35mm print owned by the Prelinger Archives. This version does not appear to have any digital restoration, except minimal contrast and brightness adjustments.

Post Effects:
This version of the film has been digitally stabilized to remove jitter by youtube user Rick88888888 in 2011.

Resources:
Sounddogs, Youtube, Horseless.com, Wikipedia, Archive.org, Streetcar.org, earlyamericalautomobiles.com, Prelinger Archives, Niles Film Museum.

Music:
“Crazy Rhythm” played by Brad Kaye.

Accuracy:
Automobile sounds are all either Ford Model T, or Model A, which came out later, but which have similarly designed engines, and sound quite close to the various cars shown in the film. The horns are slightly inaccurate as mostly bulb horns were used at the time, but were substituted by the far more recognizable electric “oogaa” horns, which came out a couple years later. The streetcar sounds are actual San Francisco streetcars. Doppler effect was used to align the sounds.

Produced by:
The Miles Brothers

This is really fascinating!

I got wind of it via this thread on my internet “home:”

Spotted this on another forum and thought it was worth sharing with my ATS friends. Sound is a studio job, but it works really well. Really gave me the chills once in a while thinking about how normal that day was and what was to come. Enjoy!

All those people are pretty much dead now. More evidence of the fleeting nature of existence.

Ha, ha, ha!
I thought traffic is bad now!
At least we have crosswalks & traffic lights!

Thanks! That was really neat!
An awesome glimpse into the past.
Almost gave me a headache though, holding my breath…
waiting to see who or what, was going to get hit first!!!

Gotta love the guy with the bag, that crosses the street,
& jumps into the back of a random wagon!
And the lady in the dark dress that crosses the street from left to right.
She never looked left or right that I could see!
You go girl!!! Ha, ha! Wouldn’t want to mess with her!!!

People must have had much steadier nerves,
& a lot less anger issues back then!!!
WOQ

LOL. Very cool.

Parody magazine edited by Stan Lee. Art by Joe Maneely, John Severin, & Bill Everett. 64 pages, black and white. Cover price $0.25.

Too cool, this magazine is… published when I was just 10 months old. And look… it’s… Stan Lee! You gotta love the “Easy Terms Available!” Too awesome!

 

 

There are, at best, only 4 or 5 pleasant hours a week. All the rest are awful.

If not for the little kid upstairs and her mommy, I would likely not be here.

Hi All

​This story only scratches the surface. You could write a whole series of novels on the horrors of the smart grid and agenda 2030.
​My intention is to make a short vid to shock more of us into fighting against the beast system

​Please share.

I just heard the audio of this video. I was compelled to post it even before I have seen the whole thing as a video.

This is a really important work that everyone, everywhere should see. That is because this film is an excellent rendition of where those who are ultimately in charge of this world are taking us. If you are sufficiently aware, you can definitely see examples of the scenarios in this movie out there in our current global situation.

It is coming, folks this is what they want, that being absolute, total control of every single aspect and even moment of our lives.

That is frightening to the core.

We MUST stop it from happening. We must not let this come to pass.
