  • Artist Duke Riley Is Doing Something Crazy With 2,000 Pigeons On The Brooklyn Waterfront

    New Yorkers take a kind of perverse pride in never looking up. Not in a figurative sense, of course: we are, after all, as optimistic as anyone else. (Who else but die-hard optimists would willingly live in so unforgiving a city?) But when it comes to actually, physically looking up, most of our gazes rarely rise above the ankles of our fellow commuters. The Boston-born, New York-based artist Duke Riley is going to change that.

    With apologies to Islander7, but I haven't seen an “Occasional Birdy Thread” in awhile, so I thought that I would post one. My pictures aren't as great as those posted by Islander7 or fidelis, but it's kind of like singing.

    I've seen a few opuses (opi?) here on Free Republic the last couple of days. They are mostly of the "I'm gonna take my ball and go home!" genre. Well, those balls aren't going to do much good just sitting in the closet at home. These people should give their balls to Hillary Clinton. Hillary isn't much of a basketball player, but she will take these balls and stab them and grind them up and use them as borders for the rose garden at The White House. So, don't just take your balls and go home, give them to Hillary....

    When Donald Trump’s political credentials as a Republican and/or conservative are challenged, he likes to remind people that Ronald Reagan was a Democrat once and managed to evolve over time. Except that Reagan’s conversion was real and he had two terms as governor of California to prove his bona fides before he ran for president as a conservative Republican. As Reagan campaign manager Stu Spencer and speechwriter Ken Khachiagin note in a Real Clear Politics piece: Yes, Ronald Reagan migrated from being a liberal Democrat to the gold standard for conservative Republicans. But Reagan’s views evolved over four decades’ worth...

    WITH a groan of tortured metal and the screams of the remaining passengers still clinging to her hull, Titanic sank beneath the waves and the last unlaunched canvas lifeboat was washed from her deck into the foaming, whirlpool of freezing water. Third class passenger Edvard Lindell, floundering in the maelstrom, struck out desperately in the direction of the half-submerged craft and managed to drag himself aboard but wife Gerda, already exhausted by the numbingly-cold water, did not have the strength to clamber into the swamped Collapsible Lifeboat A. Like a scene from James Cameron’s Titanic movie, she held on for...

    What is possibly one of the art world's greatest finds came about because some French homeowners wanted to fix a leaky roof. The 400-year-old work, which was found by accident in 2014 in an attic of a house in Toulouse, is thought to have been painted by Italian master Caravaggio, according to Old Masters expert Eric Turquin, who has been studying it for the past two years. The amazing find was discovered in a sealed-off part of the attic space, which had to be accessed in order to repair a leak. Named "Judith Beheading Holofernes," the painting represents the biblical...

    Just east of the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World, Florida, is a lake. In the middle of Bay Lake is an island that Disney won't let anyone set foot on. That's because Discovery Island is home to an abandoned park that they'd rather nobody saw. Just across the water is another deserted park, River Country. These images show nature reclaiming what Disney left behind. These are the only Disney parks to close permanently. Discovery Island was a nature reserve open between 1974 and 1999 and River Country, a water theme park, operated from 1976 to 2001.

    A woman from Sardinia, NY, was arrested after police noticed her license plate was less an official marking and more of a bad art project. Deputies spotted the poorly plagiarized plate on Amanda Schweickert's car as she drove through Springville, NY, WIVB reported. As far as fakes go, this one was hardly convincing. It appears that Schweickert took a stack of Crayola markers to a license plate-ish size slab of cardboard and thought 'good enough.' She at least stopped at hot gluing macaroni to it. How she thought this would fool authorities is anyone's guess. Naturally, the cops arrested Schweickert...
