One of the best Mythbusters I recall, was on debunking fake moonlanding claims. Well done and funny. Of course, the idiots that really believe it was a fake will never ever be convinced otherwise.

And now, back to your regularly scheduled post.

Just like one guy that comes to our church on occasion, he truly believes the Earth is completely flat, not round and no matter how much valid proof you give this "nut" he goes off the hard deep end when you refute his flat Earth belief.  And he gets so mad if he can not convince you the Earth is flat and will huff off in a full rage temper tantrum.   Personally I think this particular NUT should be put away in a white coat with very long sleeves that tie in the back and then placed in a rubber room.

I avoid this character as much as possible now, I won't even talk to or go near him, not after one of the other church members told me how he got so angry with someone because they wouldn't believe his flat Earth criteria, that he pulled a knife on them and tried to stab them.  Hence my statement in the last sentence in the above paragraph.  This person is definitely crazy!  He got a little jail time for it, but he's back out now.  This is one person I will *always avoid* no matter what.

Anyone who has been on a Naval ship knows that even the Radar (high on the mast),  no longer can 'see' the port they left at 200 miles.

(It gets pretty lonely, when you can't see land)

Orville, as you know if the earth was flat ,cats would have pushed every thing off it by now. !

Having cats {and plenty of them}, I KNOW that's the truth.  Anything on a FLAT surface is game on for them to push it right off to the floor!   I'm *always* finding things on the floor where they push them off.🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

Our cat was called Newton for his interest in gravity.   He had power to make things move in a downward direction.

If I posted all my cats names I'd be writing a novel.🤣  All of our cats have between 2 and 3 names each, and we did have 17, but one of our former roommates cats that we're taking care of{and getting paid for}, well one of the females just gave us 4 new kittens as of 5/7/2020.  So now we have 21, although we'll be looking for homes for the new kittens when they reach the age we can find them one.  Although we may already have a woman that wants all 4 of them.  Still waiting to hear back from her on that.

Be glad when our former roommate will be able to take her cats back.  Keeps getting crowded in here!🤨🤣  All my cats were spayed and neutered until she brought her 5 in, then those 5 made some more, then made some more again, so that now we're up to 21 cats in the house.

Every time I walk through the house it's like walking in a mine field the way they lay all over the place.  One misstep and you either get a harsh meow and a nasty glare or worse, you get attacked, like the mine just exploded.  Oh, so much fun I just can't stand it.🤣🤣🤣

She is working on getting them spayed and neutered, but I'm afraid by the time she gets to them all, well, we'll be way overpopulated with little furry 4 legged critters!😮🤪🤣

Murder Hornets are on the way!!

They've actually been in the US for 2 years, they were photographed in 2018.  Read a story on them a few days ago, and a person somewhere I believe in the mid-west had photographed one, dated and time stamped for 2018 that he killed in his backyard.

But they don't really pose a threat to humans, unless you happen to unfortunately disturb one of their underground nests.  They are mainly predators of Honey Bees.  But these hornets do have a natural enemy, the Praying Mantis.  It will snatch one and then devour it's brain, the same as these "Murder Hornets" do to Honey Bees.

Now since they eat brains, shouldn't they have been named "ZOMBIE Hornets?"😛🤣🤣

Has any of our members been unfortunate enough to catch the bug? I haven't been able to go anywhere so I took this years light money and I am laying all wood floors throughout the house. I figured lets shrink that "Honey Do" list so I am laying 4,400 square feet of flooring.

OMG I did 240sq a few years back (Hickory, the thick stuff, not the thin, laminate). WHAT A JOB, but wonderful in the end.

Yes they do look good, I am painting before I lay the new floors so paint on the walls, trim and ceiling then rip out the old carpet. I am also changing out all new light fixtures, wall switches and outlets while I have them off. So far I have laid about 3,000sf of maple floor plus I am staining and sealing as I finish a room. I don't think it's ever going to end.
