THE SPHINX——–WHAT ??????????????

Sphinx Main
The Editor:   Lois, what usually happens when a person or group proves that they are inept, stupid, whorehoppers, incompetent, and undependable ?

Union Cat:   They would normally be fired, locked-up, banished, outsourced, or just plain avoided.   Oh !   Wait a minute, if this is regarding the Secret Service, all bets are off.  They just pay them in Pesos, and give weekly penicillin shots.

The Editor:   That is sad and pitiful,  they can’t guard a few acres because of incompetence, and now they want to perform an UNLAWFUL SEARCH AND SEIZURE on everyone who visits Washington, D.C.    They should reduce the carrot garden and put that money on more equipment.    They just want to take more rights away from citizens.

Franken Cat:   This is what citizens should do, then take away the government guns, pensions, free cars, chauffeurs, airplanes, sex slaves, and dope.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

A Full Circle Rainbow over Australia

Explanation: Have you ever seen an entire rainbow? From the ground, typically, only the top portion of a rainbow is visible because directions toward the ground have fewer raindrops. From the air, though, the entire 360 degree circle of a rainbow is more commonly visible. Pictured here, a full circle rainbow was captured over Cottesloe Beach near Perth, Australia last year by a helicopter flying between a setting sun and a downpour. An observer-dependent phenomenon primarily caused by the internal reflection of sunlight by raindrops, the 84-degree diameter rainbow followed the helicopter, intact, for about 5 kilometers. As a bonus, a second rainbow that was more faint and color-reversed was visible outside the first.
