Skating Under The Ice

| No Comments

One of my favorite websites is run by Willis Eschenbach - he writes a lot about climate science but he has also lived an amazing life and is a top story-teller. Website: Skating Under The Ice and his about page: About This Site

Over the last few days, he has been serializing an account of his delivering a sailboat from Hong Kong to California.

Here is what he has posted so far:

I Am Invited Overseas
Back in 1976, when I was about 30, a wealthy friend of mine made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. I was to fly to Hong Kong, where I’d be the First Mate on a sailboat he’d bought and wanted to be delivered back to the US. I’ve done a variety of boat deliveries, they’re always good fun. I wrote about another boat delivery in several parts here, Part 1Part 2Part 3Part 4, and Part 5. So I said sure, I’ll deliver a sailboat, no problemo.

Here are the stories - some wonderful writing and a great adventure:

And Willis is just warming up to the story - check back every day or so. He is a wonderful writer.

Epic PWNage - the Trump 404 page

| No Comments

When you mistype a URL for a web page and there is nothing there on the server, the server will respond by displaying what is called a 404 page letting you know that there was nothing to be found there and that your URL is probably wrong.

President Trump's 404 is hilarious - here is the direct link to it.

A new Press Secretary

From the Babylon Bee:

Trump Picks Alex Jones As New Press Secretary
Confirming the widespread rumors that Sean Spicer would be departing the office in short order, President Donald Trump has chosen InfoWars chief and renowned conspiracy theorist Alex Jones as the new Press Secretary, the White House announced Tuesday.

The fiery Jones wasted no time getting in front of the cameras, holding his inaugural press conference shortly after the announcement.

“I am the new Press Secretary!” he bellowed in his distinct Texas growl at all the reporters present, occasionally taking a handkerchief out of his pocket to dab perspiration from his red face. “AAAAAaaaaaaAAAAAAHHHHH!” he continued, beating his chest like a gorilla.

“We’re comin’ for ya globalists! 1776 will commence, you wicked, wicked devils!” he added, before mumbling something about gay frogs.

Needless to say, the Babylon Bee is a satire site. Sure would be fun to see heads pop if this were true but glad it is not - Jones is a conspiracy theorist of the first order.

Heh - Bill and Donald
