Sunday funnies

Canada needs a wall. Or maybe a submarine net: "Hundreds Of Drunk Americans Washed Ashore In Canada Because Of Strong Winds".

Sometimes laziness is the mother of invention.

Here's another possible future Olympic event: mobile phone throwing.

Bad lip reading at the Democratic National Convention...

Want to play ping-pong but can't remember where you left the paddles? No problem.

Dubious distinction

If Hillary gets elected, I suppose, as a government employee, I'll go from being merely a cog in the executive branch of government to being a member of the largest organized crime syndicate in history.

So, good thing I've got a closet full of fedoras and double-breasted suits. Might as well look the part.

Update: See what I mean?

With my luck, I'll probably wind up discovering the world's largest lump of pyrite

A fisherman in the Philippines discovered a giant pearl that may be worth one hundred million dollars.

Granny Clinton sees ghosts

No, wait. Not ghosts. People wearing sheets.

Disgraceful, even by Clinton standards. Especially considering her own stated fondness for a former Klansman.

Caroline Glick on James Bond villain wanna-be, George Soros

My question is, just what the hell is he after? How does destabilizing western democracies lead to a better world?

If I had to venture a guess, I'd say that Soros wants a world controlled by a small elite, predictable and tidy, free from the messiness of individual liberty. Seems to me, though, that that kind of thing was tried on a large scale in the 20th century by various "visionaries", with rather negative results. The last thing we need is a revolutionary billionaire with a god complex.

Probably just a rounding error

"U.S. Army fudged its accounts by trillions of dollars, auditor finds".
The United States Army’s finances are so jumbled it had to make trillions of dollars of improper accounting adjustments to create an illusion that its books are balanced.

The Defense Department’s Inspector General, in a June report, said the Army made $2.8 trillion in wrongful adjustments to accounting entries in one quarter alone in 2015, and $6.5 trillion for the year. Yet the Army lacked receipts and invoices to support those numbers or simply made them up.
Simply made them up. Maybe I'll try that the next time I do my taxes, see what happens.
