Navy pilot draws giant dick in the sky

OKANOGAN COUNTY, Wash. – Officials with the Naval Air Station Whidbey Island said one of their aircraft was involved in the obscene skywritings spotted in Okanogan County.

Photos sent to KREM 2 by multiple sources show skydrawings of what some people are saying is male genitalia. Some sources have even tweeted pictures of what they saw.

North Korea Rules out negotiations

For those who demand talks from Trump; what part of you need someone to talk with don't you get?

We are not ever going to give away the company store just to get them to a table where they will break any "agreement" made.

"GENEVA (Reuters) - North Korea on Friday ruled out negotiations with Washington as long as joint U.S-South Korea military exercises continue, and said that Pyongyang’s atomic weapons program would remain as a deterrent against a U.S. nuclear threat.

In an interview with Reuters, Han Tae Song, North Korea’s ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva, brushed off the new sanctions which the Trump administration has said it is preparing, as well as the possibility of North Korea being added to a U.S. list of states sponsoring terrorism.

South Korea and the United States agreed on Friday to keep working for a peaceful end to the North Korean nuclear crisis, but a U.S. envoy said it was difficult to gauge the reclusive North’s intentions as there has been “no signal”.

Han, asked about those bilateral talks in Seoul, replied: “As long as there is continuous hostile policy against my country by the U.S. and as long as there are continued war games at our doorstep, then there will not be negotiations.”

“There are continued military exercises using nuclear assets as well as aircraft carriers, and strategic bombers and then...raising such kinds of military exercises against my country,” he said.

He, who is ambassador to the U.N.’s Conference on Disarmament, was speaking at the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) mission in Geneva, where the DPRK and the United States secured a 1994 nuclear deal which later fell apart.

He said he had no information on when North Korea might test a ballistic missile again, after the last one two months ago.

“The DPRK, my country, will continue to build-up its self-defense capability, the pivot of which is nuclear forces and capability for a triumphant...strike as long as U.S. and hostile forces keep up nuclear threat and blackmail,” Han said.

“Our country plans ultimate completion of the nuclear force,” he said."

How not to get eaten: AKA Seemed like a good idea

"While attempting to film a documentary about a remote tribe in Papua New Guinea, a British explorer’s family is fearing the worst after he missed his pick up out of the jungle.

Benedict Allen, 57, set out alone in the jungle three weeks ago with neither a satellite phone nor a GPS in an effort to find a tribe of indigenous people he’d discovered roughly 30 years ago. His hope was to film an update on their lives for the BBC. Although he warned family and followers that he might be out of communication for quite some time, his family has started to worry after he missed a flight to Hong Kong to deliver a speech at the Royal Geographical Society on Tuesday."

Think you can't be replaced? Think again

Almost every single person you see working here will be completely replaced by a machine by next year. Not only that, but the specially automated truck doesn't even begin cooking your food until it is on the way to your house.

Speculation thread: What is the "Major Statement"?

My guess: North Korea will be placed back on the Terrorist Sponsor Nations list.

Last week, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson missed a statutory deadline to decide whether to re-list North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism (SSOT). Asked about this, State said it told members of Congress that Tillerson “expects to conclude his review and announce a decision within the month.” The Washington Times claims that “here were rumors this week in the back hallways of the State Department that the administration was weighing a state sponsor designation.” National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster hinted at the outcome when he said, “A regime who (sic) murders someone in a public airport using nerve agent — that’s clearly an act of terrorism.” It helps to watch his expressions and listen to his intonations as he answers.

223 years ago today: When America first went off the rails

"It all started after the Revolution, in 1791, when the federal government was in debt, and had no official money. The notes they paid to soldiers were worth fractions of what was promised, but many had no choice but to accept the funds and go home in order to try to survive.

But the soldiers were not the only ones who needed to be paid after the war. There were a number of rich investors and bankers who had provided the capital needed to win the Revolution. They too were awaiting repayment.

Alexander Hamilton had a better relationship with these financiers than with the soldiers. Hamilton was one of the leading banking figures of the time. He proposed a tax which would have two purposes. The tax would raise the revenue necessary to pay back the wealthy financiers of the Revolution. But the tax would also bring under the jurisdiction of the federal government a group of pioneers living in rural western Pennsylvania. The tax was to be levied on the production of whiskey, and not just at a commercial level. Everyone who made whiskey owed the tax. This would be the first federal tax on domestic goods.

This was a problem for the people of western Pennsylvania. Most people in this area used whiskey as a currency. Whatever surplus grain a family had would be converted into whiskey in order to preserve it. Whiskey would still have the calories of grain and was drank by almost everyone. It could be used for preserving and making some medicines.

Whiskey didn’t spoil, was widely used, and easy to transport. This made it an ideal currency. No need for banks, no need for paper money the worth of which can be manipulated. These people had tangible goods with intrinsic value absent of government mandate.

But Alexander Hamilton and the federal government insisted that the tax on whiskey be paid in coin.

For western Pennsylvanians, this amounted to an income tax. But even worse, now they had to find a way to convert their whiskey into coin. They had no use for coin since they used whiskey as a currency. But now the federal government would require them to use more time and effort just to pay the tax."

Read the rest at the link. This was the first, but by no means the last, time the government has screwed average citizens to benefit their wealthy benefactors.

Today is the day to pour a glass of Monongahela Rye in their honor.

Crazy guy drives into students at French school

"A driver 'suffering from acute schizophrenia' ploughed into a group of Chinese students leaving a college in the suburb of Blagnac, near Toulouse, on Friday.

Three people were injured, two gravely, in the smash at the exit of Saint-Exupéry high school, in south-west France, before being taken to the nearby Purpan Hospital.

The driver, 28, who deliberately committed the attack, is known to police but was not on a security watch list. While being arrested he admitted to hearing voices telling him to hurt someone."

Here's a good way to get shot

"PENN TOWNSHIP, Pa. - A company’s solicitation permit has been revoked after police in Penn Township received numerous complaints about its efforts to get residents to switch electric companies.

Police said representatives from Inspire Energy and its marketing firm, Iron City Executives, were going door-to-door, but that is being put to an end.

Police Chief John Otto said some representatives were getting too pushy, and in some cases, refused to show residents the now-revoked solicitation permits.

Complaints ranged from door knobs being jiggled to representatives opening up doors and poking their heads inside.

Lisa Granata, a Penn Township resident, said she was making dinner one night when she heard a knock on her door, followed by a woman opening the storm door and looking in.

“She went on and on and said, ‘Go get your computer and we will take care of it.’ I said, ‘I'm not getting my computer. I'm not interested.’ And she just didn't want to be turned down, and I said I'm going in to cook dinner, so she said, ‘OK, we will be back tomorrow,’” Granata said."

Made the first full grain brew with our Grainfather last night!

This thing is pretty amazing. It's a fully computer and app controlled end to end brewing system. We made a rye "beer". We only have one problem. It turns out rye is VERY sticky. Now we have a "stuck mash". We are slowly wringing the wort out of the grain, but it's slow going. Note to self: Use rice hulls next time for flow.

I saw this on Amazon. It's wrong on every level, and yet...

My curiosity is piqued.
