Hurry Up And Wait Editor:  The military comes up with some great slang-words don’t they, LL ?

Nobody Told Me Cat:  They sure do.  We see these acronyms all the time, but probably didn’t know their origin.

Here is a great acronym used recently.  Everyone knows the mail-in-ballots will be a disaster, but who cares ?

This is one of my favorite political-words, kinetic intervention.  It means war.  The Swamp-Creatures hate Trump for getting us out of Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and other unwinnable enterprises.

HUAWE:  What can Trump do to protect citizens in sanctuary states, NTMC ?     

After the election he has to get serious with the rioters, MSM, and governors who won’t enforce laws.

You get what you pay for.  Chinese citizens should never be in our research universities.  It’s an old story, but the chickens are coming home.  Ask Hunter/Joe Biden to clear up the problem.

 Actual questions asked of Canadian reference librarians 

Do you have books here?

Do you have that book by Rushdie, ‘Satanic Nurses’? [Actual title: “Satanic Verses”]

I am looking for a list of laws that I can break that would send me back to jail for a couple of months.

Can you tell me why so many famous Civil War battles were fought on National Park sites?

Do you have a list of all the books I’ve ever read?

Do you have any books with photographs of dinosaurs? =================================================================

 Out of the mouths of babes …

A nursery school teacher was observing her classroom of children while they were drawing. She would occasionally walk around to see each child’s work.

As she got to little Sarah who was working diligently, she asked what the drawing was. Sarah replied, “I’m drawing God.” The teacher paused and said, “But no one knows what God looks like.”

Sarah replied, “They will in a minute.”

What did you call me?

A farmer got pulled over by a state trooper for speeding, and the trooper started to lecture the farmer about his speed, and in general, began to throw his weight around to try to make the farmer uncomfortable.

Finally, the trooper got around to writing out the ticket, and as he was doing that he kept swatting at some flies that were buzzing around his head.

The farmer said, ‘Having some problems with circle flies there, are ya?’

The trooper stopped writing the ticket and said, ‘Well yeah, if that’s what they are, but I never heard of circle flies.’

So the farmer says, ‘Well, circle flies are common on farms. See, they’re called circle flies because they’re almost always found circling around the back end of a horse.’

The trooper says, ‘Oh,’ and goes back to writing the ticket.

Then after a minute he stops and says, ‘Hey…wait a minute, are you trying to call me a horse’s ass?’

The farmer says, ‘Oh no, officer. I have too much respect for law enforcement and police officers to even think about calling you a horse’s ass.’

The trooper says, ‘Well, that’s a good thing,’ and goes back to writing the ticket. He finished writing the ticket and handed it to the farmer.

As he was walking off the farmer yelled,

“It’s hard to fool them circle flies though!”

Astronomy Picture of the Day

A Night Sky Vista from Sardinia
Image Credit & Copyright: Tomáš Slovinský

Explanation: How many famous sky objects can you find in this image? The featured dark sky composite combines over 60 exposures spanning over 220 degrees to create a veritable menagerie of night sky wonders. Visible celestial icons include the Belt of Orion, the Orion Nebula, the Andromeda Galaxy, the California Nebula, and bright stars Sirius and Betelgeuse. You can verify that you found these, if you did, by checking an annotated version of the image. A bit harder, though, is finding Polaris and the Big Dipper. Also discernible are several meteors from the Quandrantids meteor shower, red and green airglow, and two friends of the astrophotographer. The picture was captured in January from Sardinia, Italy. You can see sky wonders in your own night sky tonight — including more meteors than usual — because tonight is near peak of the yearly Orionids meteor shower.
