Animal’s Hump Day News

Happy Hump Day!

On to the links!

Corey Booker is an idiot.

Chuck Todd is an idiot.

Alexandria Occasional Cortex is an idiot.  (Yes, I know, low-hanging fruit.)

Can you count past infinity?  Common sense says no.  Mathematicians say “it depends.”

The United States is now officially free of measles.  How long it will remain that way is anyone’s guess, between unchecked Third World immigration and the stupidity of anti-vaxxers.

Want to keep flies off  your cows?  Paint them up like zebras.  No shit!  Excerpt, because I found this pretty interesting:

…the researchers painted six Japanese Black cows with black-and-white stripes, which took just five minutes per cow. They then observed the cows for three days, taking high-resolution images of them at regular intervals to count the insects on the animals and also recording any fly-repelling behaviors like leg stamping, tail flicking, and skin twitching. The same cows were also observed for three days with painted-on black stripes (to see if it was the paint chemicals, not the coloring, that repelled flies) and and with no stripes at all.

The apparent effects of the stripes were remarkable. The number of biting flies observed on zebra-striped cows was less than half the number seen on unpainted cows and far less than cows painted with black stripes. Moreover, zebra-striping reduced fly-repelling behaviors by about 20%, indicating that the cows were less bothered by the insects.

Remind me to buy some zebra-stripe shirts before the next time I go fishing in Canada.  Hope it works on mosquitoes.

Have aliens bugged space rocks?  I doubt it, but if we found one – then what?

Impeachment seems to be helping President Trump, not Democrats.  Newt Gingrich was unavailable for comment.

Who doesn’t love a cold one?

Colorado breweries were big winners at the 2019 Great American Beer Fest.  One of the things I like about Colorado, although I confess that the things I dislike about Colorado are catching up with the things I like.

Joe Biden tries to sell us a bill of goods.

Princess Spreading Bull lied about having been fired for being pregnant.  Add that lie to the list, folks.

On that lie-detecting note, we return you to your Wednesday, already in progress.

Animal’s Hump Day News

Happy Hump Day!

I’ve been thinking of making Wednesday links day, instead of scattering them around at random when no particular thing grabs my attention.  I do like to comment on a wide range of things, after all.

So, on Wednesdays here at Animal Magnetism, that’s the new rule – Wednesday is links day, unless something in particular comes up that can’t wait for Thursday, or unless nothing comes up on any other day, or unless I change my mind.

So there.  I’ve made up my mind.  At least until I change it again.

So, on to the links!

Sheila Jackson Lee Is An Idiot.   I know, I know – no news there.

I  honestly don’t think Tulsi Gabbard is an idiot, in spite of disagreeing with her on almost everything; but she’s working hard to change my mind.

An unnamed high school teacher at Cuthbertson High School in North Carolina is an idiot.

The Trump Administration is yanking Californey’s authority to set stricter than Imperial auto emissions rules.  Californey will predictably respond with hysterics and cries about the sky falling.

From the esteemed Robert Stacy McCain:  Import people from Third World shitholes, and they act like they’re in a Third World shithole.  Is anyone surprised?  Anyone?  Anyone?  Bueller?  Bueller?

From The Daley Gator!  Texans at large:  “Murder suspects are walking around free and causing all sorts of trouble!”  Beta O’Rourke:  ***crickets***

Our good friend Jillian Becker on Russia, well worth the read.

Fewer young folks are going hunting.  If you hunt, take a kid hunting!  I’ve got loyal sidekick Rat to my credit – he wasn’t an outdoors type until he and I got to be buddies, now he’s hooked.

And on that note, we return you to your Wednesday, already in progress.
