27. FReeps are funny folk
and can lead to one's soiling of themselves by witnessing their actions, or vocabulary antics.

:crazy:

The word "portapotty" is funny too. It'll come up sometime.

46. yes and another guy was killed near that area last year when he was free
diving for conch or something like that. We go to Bodega bay about 6 or 7 times a year and my daughter's teacher's Dad runs a oceanography lab there, he says there are a lot more sharks then people realize trolling round the bay.

24. In Bodega Bay it would probably be a Great White
if the adjective 'series' is correct, of course...

however, given the media's massive distraction - uh, I mean attraction - to sharks, it could be one of a dozen kinds of toe-biters.

35. In California this time of year
It was probably a White Shark. They come up here this time of year to eat Elephant Seals. Bull sharks prefer warmer waters.

9. the white girls are accounted for but they did show a pic
of a very cute young black girl who's gone missing :(

I sure hope parents start getting through to young girls.. They seem to be falling for some pretty shifty guys at college these days.. murderous ones :scared:

In my day there were some doozies too, but I don;t think we ever thought they would kill us :(

40. Here's a link to a Florida station's story, which has links to video
and a slideshow:

http://www.wftv.com/irresistible/5118925/detail.html

The story got national attention on both CNN and Faux earlier today. I didn't catch it on MSNBC while channel surfing, but I suppose they picked it up, too.

25. CandyGram...
If any of the people who write the captions/headline graphics had a sense of the absurd, that's what they'd make the thing say.

(I hope the guy's ok, but I want to hear about DeLay, dammit!)

Good one - high five to fellow 70s child.

BTW, I hope the guy is okay, too, but I'm giddy from DeLay (and the delay of waiting for the frickin' indictments).

31. High five back at ya, thanks...
(Though technically it's from a 70's child to a late 70's baby but that's neither here nor there.)

The delay of waiting is right. Man! Thank god DeLay has a warrant out today--I'm gettin' antsy for Fitz to wrap it up too, but at least DeLay offers something to tide us over.

33. Land shark..



and a REAL item called a land shark






If you're stranded on the ground, a LAND/Shark can save your life!



For use on land, the LAND/Shark provides a waterproof one person emergency shelter large enough to provide full body coverage, even over heavy outerwear. It is tough enough to withstand the rigors of a survival situation, yet light enough to not be a burden to carry. The LAND/Shark is a large fully-enclosed shelter (not just a blanket). It is large enough for an adult plus a small child, small pack or other gear.

Natural materials can be incorporated if available to enhance the insulating properties inherent in its design and construction. Slitting the side seams turns it into a versatile tarp or emergency shelter.

The extremely bright International Orange side makes an excellent emergency signal, readily visible from the air. In a desert environment, it not only provides vital shade, but its thermal reflectivity effectively repels the sun's deadly rays, providing improved performance over a simple shade shelter.



In the water, a LAND/Shark will extend your survival time several fold!


For water survival, the LAND/Shark completely encloses the survivor (with a life vest on), up and over the head, and without impairing any other functions. The drawstring can be adjusted as necessary to protect the survivor from injesting sea water in rough seas. With the rate of body heat loss 25 times greater in the water than air, the bag serves to slow the drain of vital body heat and provides protection from chilling sea spray and breaking waves. This should significantly extend survival times. The aluminized material is radar reflective for search aircraft and high speed vessels moving at night. In warmer waters where the sun is a danger to exposed skin above the water, the bag can be configured to provide for shade and ventilation.

The waterproof construction of the LAND/Shark functions as a deterrent to shark attacks by preventing body odors, waste and blood from entering the open waters and attracting these deadly predators. In addition, the voluminous bag alters the shape of the survivor and reduces flailing movements, presenting a less attractive appearance to predators. The LAND/Shark also provides complete protection from venomous jellyfish, Portuguese Man-of-War and sea snakes. A tether is incorporated to ensure survivors stay together.

48. Bodega Bay... if it were BIRDS I'd be worried.
White sharks in California coastal waters isn't much news.

Isn't there a kidnapping of a young blonde cheerleader somewhere?
