Wisconsin Policeman Had Sex on the Job 98 Times: A Wisconsin police officer has resigned following an internal investigation that showed he had sex 98 times while on duty, a violation of numerous department polices and procedures. Wow, if you get pulled over by this guy, you know you’re screwed. I guess its not too surprising though considering the sign on the side of their police cars says “to protect and service.” Being a huge law enforcement advocate, Gov…Continue
Then there are people like Safe Bet's Amy, whoever she is. A volatile big mouth. She loves to criticize everyone, but she contributes nothing to Our Salon. I guess we have to tolerate people like her. After all it's a free country, or something like that. However if we had only people like her, it wouldn't be free much longer. Oh yeah, that's right. She will help elect someone just like herself, Donald Trump.
God, I just had an epiphany. Safe Bet's Amy is actually Donald…Continue
A Boston-area woman has earned the nickname “The Bra Whisperer” for her skill at properly fitting women with the undergarments.

Entire books could be written on the history of bathing. Shower head history however, is quite breif.

I haven't posted for quite some time. Not because I haven't thought about it, but because when I do. I get too many negative comments. I'm one of those people, who takes everyone else's thoughts too seriously. Even though I know for the most part, all of us here on OS are preaching to the choir.
So here goes. I am sick of arguing with my "friends" and relatives on Facebook. I have Afib, and during election years, I'm not in good shape. Stress tends to bring it on. I wish…Continue
There have to be, as you read this, a raft of seasoned investigative reporters doing their best to sort out what kinds of, the range and depth of, Donald Trump's and Paul Manafort's relationships with Russian government and corporate leaders and entities. When asked about his ties in and to Russia in the wake of the recent hacking of Democratic Party servers, Mr Trump, according to the NYT, after saying that…Continue
These endeavors have been 99.44% about those events and topics which are interesting to those of us who indulge in relational database and quant activities. Unlike many such blatherings, they are not about demonstrating technique which is readily available to read in texts, both dead trees and on the innterTubes. The macro concerns, in a nutshell.
One of those concerns, which pops up Whack-a-Mole style where one might not expect, is…Continue
I love this photo. The green inside the nest is super soft fuzz and it would have made such a nice birth place for a little bird but it was destroyed and on the ground with a half egg shell near by. Made me sad to think that life is so brutal to take a…Continue
At the impressionable age of 17 I left the rural town where I grew up to attend college in the big city. There I soon learned that movies weren’t just a convenient occasion to feel up a girl and, if she turned you down, to blow into your empty Milk Duds box and make a fart noise. No, they were “films,” a form of entertainment that, when molded by a master director–an auteur–could achieve the status of art.…Continue

Americans Like Smartphones More than Sex: A new Harris Poll found that more Americans say they can live without sex than without their smartphones. Which, when you think about it, is really quite a testimony as to how good phone sex has gotten over the last few years.…Continue
Like many older people I go to Facebook to communicate with my children and grown grandchildren. I see new photos, occasionally am privy to some high or low point in their lives, and read that 243 of their closest friends have “liked” their post and then read the comments that a few of them have shared. Some of the comments are clever and interesting. Most are like an inert gas; colorless, odorless and…Continue

Being a 9th generation Florida local, I think of Georgia as a separate country, a backwards place where all the billboards are either about Jesus, abortion or homophobia. There are a lot of big pickup trucks and they always seem too close to your rear bumper for comfort. Let's not forget about the clay, it's so strange it feels like you’re on another planet, not just another state.
Recently though while traveling to Macon on business, I got a chance to see what life…
NASA Space Probe Confirms Mercury Has Ice: In a surprising finding, NASA space probe Messenger has confirmed that Mercury, the closest planet to the sun, has a vast amount of ice at its north pole. Who cares about ice? Space probes don’t need cold beverages. The real question is, does it have any mercury? What the world needs now are affordable thermometers. …Continue
In an excellent four part series writers at Boston University document a disturbing trend in research in the United States.
For decades privately funded research of a more goal oriented design has outstripped publicly funded basic research in dollars spent. In recent years there has been a decline in private funding, as well. The result is that the landmark…Continue
