The Wildlife Photography Of Al Popil
griz grass
Hi Don, Tried emailing this pic a couple of days ago. Internet here sucks real bad. Oh, correction, tired again, Fish creek is north of Hyder, Alaska. Anyway, female grizzly eats grass. The joys of rain is you get good colour saturation. My hands have been eaten alive by the no see ums (little tiny flies). I wake up at 4:00 a.m. every day scratching my hands and can't get back to sleep, then spend 12-13 hours a day at the crick. Loooong days. Trouble is I am gone before the stores open and back after they close so I haven't got anything for the bites. Al.

Our chief Whatzit guy Bixman of the city is always trying
to stump readers with the unusual items he finds.


* The items in the whatzit picture are electrical marrettes. I must say this type of pic is more reasonable than electron micrographs. Paul.

* The English name for these is Screwits, but can’t think of the Canadian name. There was a picture of Mr. Screwit on the box like the doodle attached, showing 4 wires being held together by a screwit. There is your UK trivia for today!

Discussion Forum
Exchange Of The Day

SUBJECT: Crouse Developments Inc.

* I can't remember who wrote it but whomever wrote: "Crouse must think that transparency should apply to everyone except himself"  ...hit the nail on the head.

* Just went to the link provided by Galt. It did not show up. Was it deleted? Is it possible that my birdie is getting to Crouse?

* How much of the 110 hours was Crouse working for Crouse Developments? Since the money goes to Crouse Developments, then is it safe to say that Crouse Developments pays Crouse and his wife.? Therefore is Crouse Dev. under contract to the CRB? How legit is that? With all these suspicions going on, the taxpayers should demand a forensic audit.

* Interesting that CD Inc was established the year he sought public office. 

* @gault - I followed your posted link. Funny little map in the corner of the page. Someone out there please assure me our Mayor is thoughtful enough to have applied for a home based business license.

The Cannibal’s Mistake

The Cannibal’s Mistake
Five cannibals get appointed as engineers in a defence company. During the welcoming ceremony the boss says, "You're all part of our team now. You can earn good money here, and you can go to the cafeteria for something to eat. So please don't trouble any of the other employees." The cannibals promised.

Four weeks later the boss returns and says, "You're all working very hard, and I'm very satisfied with all of you. However, one of our janitors has disappeared. Do any of you know what happened to him?"

The cannibals all shake their heads no.

After the boss has left, the leader of the cannibals says to the others, "Which of you idiots ate the janitor?"

A hand raises hesitantly, to which the leader of the cannibals replies, "You fool! For four weeks we've been eating Team Leaders, Supervisors and Project Managers and no one noticed anything, and you have to go and eat the janitor!"

B-36 Cockpit Gauge Maze

B-36 Cockpit
The B-36 was a state of the art airplane in its day. The Air Engineer was responsible for starting, maintaining and shutting down the 6 Radial Engines and 4 Jet Engines required to make it fly and mission completed. No modern "Fly by Wire" or "Computer controlled Aircraft" involved here. Just straight old manpower, brainpower and the guts to get it done. This is absolutely mind boggling to think about. The 360 degree viewing movement by moving your mouse is amazing.

This is a 360 degree panorama of the flight engineers station on a B-36: Six propeller-driven R-4360s and four J-47 jets to keep an eye on, plus fuel, pressurization, hydraulics, electrical, and other systems. Use your mouse to navigate the cockpit.
