A man died and went to heaven.
As he stood in front of St. Peter at the Pearly Gates he saw a huge wall of clocks behind him.

He asked, "What are all those clocks?"

St. Peter answered, "Those are Lie clocks.
Everyone on earth has a lie-clock. Every time you lie the hands on the clock will move"

"Oh" said the man, "Whose clock is that?"
"That's Mother Teresa's".
The hands have never moved, indicating that she never told a lie."
"Incredible, " said the man.

"That's Abraham Lincoln's clock. The hands have moved twice, telling us that Abe only told two lies in his entire life."

"Where's Trump's clock?"

"His clock is in Jesus' office. He's using it as a ceiling fan."

Solaris, and I don't understand why it received such high ratings.

You mean this?
Solaris (Russian: Солярис) is a 1972 film directed by Andrej Tarkovsky, based on Stanisław Lem's novel Solaris from 1961.
Solaris is a meditative psychodrama that takes place on a spacecraft in orbit around a planet called Solaris. The scientific work on space station has ended in a crisis. Psychologist Kris Kelvin travels to the station to evaluate and investigate the situation, but is soon haunted by the same type of hallucinations that have affected the other crew members.
Solaris became a great success. The film was presented at the Cannes Film Festival in 1972 and won the Prix du Jury, the FIPRESCI Prize and nominated for the Golden Palm.


No. The 2002 version.

Google says tailless squirrels are quite common and that it's almost definitely due to an attack by a predator.
As far as anyone knows, squirrels are never born without a tail.

I'm not so sure about that.
Both cats and squirrels usually have tails.
But not all of them.
I have met some cats without a tail.
And they was definitely not due to an attack by a predator.

I didn't say anything about cats.

Nice one. I have all episodes on my media player, can you remind me what episode that was from please.


If you're talking to me --- I have no idea! Sorry.

I would guess, though, that it's from the first season. Also, that looks
like Jimmy with the Doctor, so it would be after he joined the show.

Oops, my images are little too big. I will correct that tomorrow. Too late tonight.

I think it's nice to have an easily-identifiable creature in your yard. And I like your pix of Bobbie.

I don't know if it's the same bird, but there is now a nest on top of the roll-up awning over my front picture window. It hasn't been rolled in or out in about 30 years, so I don't care about that.

I saw a news item the other day about a woman who can't use her front door because robins are aggressively defending the nest they built on her Christmas wreath. She says next year she'll take down the wreath sooner.


Where does she live? Southern Florida? Or did she leave the wreath up until May?
Because I don't see robins making nests during the time a Christmas wreath would
be up.

'Max Headroom' pilot, US version.

I really used to like that show. I was sad when it was canceled.

You never watch TV, janne? Just because we watch TV doesn't mean we don't do anything else.

Of course I do.
But following TV series...
Sometimes they can be good though.
Sopranos and Boardwalk Empire for instance.
But those I saw all episodes in row every day.
It took some weeks:)

Oh btw. It's Eurovision Song Contest tonight!
200 million viewers from more than 40 countries.


Well of course I only follow the good shows. ;-)

Out of the corner of my eye I thought I saw a bunny rabbit.

Meet Bob. This little guy showed up yesterday with mom and dad in tow. I've never seen a squirrel with no tail. He's got a stub looks like. I can't see any wound/healed area. Looks natural.

I'll spike the patio with more cracked/broken sunflower seeds and see if he is a local and get more photos. His parents look familiar. They will sit there and eat the crushed seeds. Anything else they fill their face then scamper away and bury it in the yard.

without a tail.

Of course, other articles might say something different. I only checked the first
couple of results.

Why watching TV series?
You can just walk in the nature or a park and watch whats happening.
I'm fortunate enough to live close to it.
A pigeon couple has recently built a nest on our balcony.
A hare couple use to lie in the grass just beneath.
Our dog Tosca met a hedgehog and sniffed at it. Ouch!
Not along ago a moose run in our parking lot.

Just waiting for Sir David Attenborough to pop up:)

15) Message boards : Cafe SETI : TV Show 'Mountain Monsters' - Real Or Fake? (Message 1867138)

Post:
Maybe you know the TV show 'Mountain Monsters'?

In Germany currently it run on "DMAX" as "Die Monster-Jäger - Bestien auf der Spur".

At the end of every episode you can read:
'No wildlife was hunted, trapped or harmed in any way in the making of the program.'

At one episode they hunted an injured Bigfoot after some time other unknown people shot and killed him and had wrapped him in something and have moved him away.

This and that don't match. ;-)

I don't think that this TV show is real.

Because of which reason they made/make this TV show?

What do you think - is this TV show real or fake?

Thanks.


Since "Bigfoot" is still a myth, how could someone have shot one? If someone had
found a real Bigfoot, the world would have heard about it.

I say fake.

This is from a few years back. I hang hummingbird feeders out every year as the
ruby throated hummingbirds start their northern migration. They get to my area
in central Texas around March 15 each year. I seldom have more than two or three
hummers at my feeders at any one time, and one is usually trying to chase the
others off. On this day, however, I had several hummers at my feeder for some
unknown reason. So many, in fact, that I put up a second feeder nearby. Note that
these are all female. You can tell because their throats are not red/purple. (I
think that applies to juvenile males, as well, so some of these - or all of these -
might be boys.) I count eight, and others were flying nearby.

I wonder what the spider is thinking.

They're actually "opossums" arn't they?

Sorry, but lazy language there Angela.

And totally different from the actual "possums" that we have here down under?

Cheers.


Officially they are opossums, but it is acceptable in common speech to drop the "o."

Post:
That is correct. The main reason we transitioned from Classic to Boinc was to open up an umbrella to enable other scientific projects to do what Seti had done. The added bonus was stronger protection from credit fraud. There will always be some that will want to cheat for a perceived benefit, whether it is taxes, athletics, or leader boards. How can you stop some human beings being those type of human beings?


Frontal lobotomy?
