    ...It was the fish of a lifetime—a 76.5-pound white marlin that won him the world’s largest annual billfish tournament, the White Marlin Open, and $2,818,662 in prize money... He swears it happened just like that. Fishing is full of tall tales about the one that got away, and polygraph tests... are now used in high-stakes fishing tournaments. Mr. Heasley, like many winners, was required to take the test. Texas and Alabama, have passed laws to combat fish-tournament fraud. A few weeks later, Mr. Heasley, along with two crew mates, one of whom said he was hung over after drinking 15...

  • Don't get too close to the buffalo!

    This could have been me, but I don't think it would have been my fault as I wouldn't have wanted to come this close. I was at Elk Island park, in Alberta, and I went around a bend on a trail and came over a hill and the bison was unexpected close enough that I could have petted the thing. I got out very quick. It also moved off the path a couple hundred yards away, once I was out of sight. I was very lucky that day.

    The President loves the game of golf, especially when he can play at his own properties. But during a recent round at his club in Bedminster, N.J., Donald Trump threw out the book of etiquette when he took his golf cart over one of his club's greens. A video posted to Twitter by guests at the club shows the president cruising across the green -- a staunch no-no in golf decorum. POTUS then pulls up to the guests filming and engages them in conversation. When the guests ask him how he's playing, Trump replies: "Well until this hole." Maybe he...

    Imagine you need to cross a busy street, you have two options go across the crosswalk ( legally ) or take the quicker path and jaywalk ( illegally ) ... well imagine if coming to live in another country was like crossing a street. At the cross walk there would be a open manhole covers with no road cones around them, a line of government bureaucrats standing between you and the "press for signal button" at the cross walks. The crosswalk light wouldn't work as the button would be missing or broken. The traffic would be constantly moving with through...

    “I’m going to be introducing legislation this week … to allow congressmen to carry a sidearm, should they so desire,” Rep. Mo Brooks said in an interview with Maria Bartiromo on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.” Members of Congress are “high-profile targets,” the congressman said, adding that they have “absolutely no way to defend ourselves because of Washington, D.C.’s rather restrictive gun laws,” the Alabama congressman said. “I want congressmen to be treated as if they were law enforcement,” Brooks said, “given that we are high-profile targets for the bad guys, the lone wolves, the terrorists.”

    The National Weather Service has issue has issued widespread flash flood warnings across America as liberal tears continue to pour down unabated, increasing in severity after Karen Handel’s victory over Jon Ossoff in the race for Georgia’s 6th Congressional District. "We advise all citizens to disconnect electrical appliances, bring outdoor furniture inside, and move all important indoor items to the top floor of your home to avoid flood damage,” a NWS spokesman said. “Also, avoid walking or driving through streams of tears, as their power can be deceiving—just six inches of moving tears can knock you down, and only one...

  • Michelle Obama’s Colorful Sundress Is Just What Your Closet Needs This Season (barf alert)

    Yahoo News ^ | June 18 2017
    Since leaving the White House in January, Michelle Obama has stayed relatively quiet and deprived us of her almost daily power-dressing inspiration. However, the former FLOTUS stepped out in N.Y.C. on Thursday in a vibrant summer sundress that we’re seriously hoping to copy for our next warm-weather event. For a day out in Manhattan, Obama chose a knee-length frock with vertical stripes of shades of blue and green that elongated her frame. She paired the vibrant dress with cat-eye sunglasses, hoop earrings, and nude pointy-toe pumps, keeping her accessories minimal to let her dress take center stage. ADVERTISING Michelle Obama...

    I Shook Hands With Hitler Reincarnation Today And I think I saw Vincent Price peering out of the corner, quick to be out of sight hiding from me. But I saw him. Met the vacant eyes of Bela Lugosi passing in the bathroom. Eerie organ music played as I entered the doors for my interview. Had a nice conversation with a woman who’d, I imagine, takes classes in incompetency. They’re very interested in me and want to explore the next level in the process. She mentioned a few caveats, shrugged at the facts that there were 2 meetings a day,...

    A motorcycle police officer stops a driver for shooting through a red light. The driver is a real jerk, steps out of his car and comes striding toward the officer, demanding to know why he is being harassed by the Gestapo! So the officer calmly tells him of the red light violation. The motorist instantly goes on a tirade, questioning the officer's ancestry, sexual orientation, etc., in rather explicitly offensive terms. The tirade goes on and on without the officer saying anything. When the officer finishes writing the ticket he puts an "AH" in the lower right corner of the...
