It's lighter, more durable, wind-resistant, and more comfortable than traditional Loden fabric.

Ahhh man...

True story. When I was in Vietnam a buddy and I took an R&R to Thailand. When went to a town outside Bangkok and hired a couple of pedicabs to take us around and show us the sites with numerous stops for LOTS of Singha. One of the places they took us was a small family farm where they raised alligators for hides. There were a half dozen pits surround by ,like 4ft cinder block walls seething with alligators. They fed them some chickens for our entertainment and being the drunken azzhole I was I decided to get up on the wall and take some pictures of the frenzy. I remember it like this. I was standing on the wall looking through the lens of my 35mm SLR. I was laying in the bottom of the pit. I was on the outside of the pit covered in gator st1t. The family that ran the farm and the two guide thought it was great fun and happily washed my clothes and brought us many Singhas while they dried out a bit

This feels like fate-

"Authorities identified the men as Nathan Doody, 33, and Tyler Memory, 29, according to the New York Daily News."
That sentence made me check the URL to make sure this wasn’t The Onion…


When I was in the Philippines once, I saw a kid fall into a “septic tank”. Theirs was not at all a tank; it was more like a sh!t canal.

It was obviously a very traumatic and maybe life threatening moment of that kid’s life, but for us it was uproariously funny - like, you could only see the whites of his eyes underneath all the sh!t

It's mid-June, so that means sporadic fireworks every night for the next 4 weeks or so

That's because you live in real America. Here we get fireworks for Diwali in November, and Next Door lights up with people posting about how suburbia has turned into Fellujah.

I wish traffic accidents records were easily kept/organized. Looks like its a weird spread of Highway patrol/local PD/DMV records, some of which are kept in different areas, some are public, some are just random.

Backstory - there's a corner near our place that has a serious accident probably once a month, but I can't find any tracking data on it

If you're in a major metropolitan area, check with your local/regional Council of Governments. The COGs are generally in charge of federal transportation funding in the MSAs and are usually a good centralized location for all sorts of transportation data including accident reports, ADT counts, employment/population/housing forecasts, etc.

When I was in Egypt in the Marines we took a short Nile cruise one evening. The OOD on our Naval ship told all of us who were going on the cruise that if anybody fell into the river there was absolutely no way they'd let us back on the ship and we'd have to stay in Egypt on quarantine for a few weeks. None of us could tell if he was joking but nobody was about to test him.
