Tuesday Means…Well, Motes

An absolutely “must watch: “The Muppets Haunted Mansion”. Oh, hell yes.

Blackmail is such an ugly word:  ex·tor·tion /ikˈstôrSH(ə)n/ 1)The practice of obtaining something, especially money, through force or threats.

 Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced on Thursday that he has secured additional monoclonal antibodies to fight COVID-19 in his state. The move comes after President Joe Biden suddenly cut back on federal distribution of the life-saving treatment to Florida and other southern, red states last week. There is no evidence of a national shortage of monoclonal antibody treatment and no justification for the federal government to cut supplies to the states that need it most. This is the administration playing politics with citizens lives. You don’t agree, you don’t toe the line. You and your unamerican constituencies pay the price.

Rule #2, don’t do stupid things: A snake-swallowing daredevil has died after a viper bit his tongue and throat causing a horrific allergic reaction. Reports say the man had twice before put the steppe viper further down his throat but on the third attempt, the snake bit his tongue. While the snake is poisonous, its bite should not be lethal to humans. He was reported to have suffered anaphylactic shock.

Can’t have it both ways: Numerous reports of hospitals and clinic’s terminating healthcare giver’s for not getting vaxx’d. Also reports of how overrun with Covid patents these same locations are. If your clinic is “overrun”, why in hell would you fire anyone? If the vax is soooo good, why won’t nurses and other healthcare professionals take it?  If you terminate a bunch of care givers, who will you replace them with?

Nessie is alive and well: A British outdoorsman paddling through Scotland’s Loch Ness for a long-distance charity canoe trip may have inadvertently captured drone footage of the fabled Loch Ness Monster. The video image taken last month of a long, thin form just beneath the water’s surface was so fleeting that Mavor didn’t notice it when he posted it Sept. 1.  when the group pulled their canoes up on the south shore of Loch Ness for the night, he sent a camera-equipped drone aloft to capture a shot of the group. As the camera zoomed in, the outline of a creature nearly twice the length of the beached watercraft appeared to approach the group while floating beneath the lake’s rippling waves. There is a terrific movie about Nessie called “The Water Horse” from 2007. A great movie for the whole family.
