Odd Spot #19.

Thursday, July 10, 2014

A small-time criminal known as Biggie or Fatboy has been arrested for hiding drugs in his fat folds. Officers in Florida pulled over Christopher Mitchell, 42, because he wasn't wearing a seatbelt but his behaviour made them suspicious. A drugs dog found cocaine and marijuana packed into stomach folds of his 204-kilogram /449-lbs frame.

The epitome of boredom is popularly thought to be watching paint dry. Dr Thomas Curwen, 34, has done just that in his job for a major paint company in Twyford, England, for the past four years. He says it is fascinating watching the changing colour of paint as it dries - both on walls and up close through a microscope.

    I'd think that if anyone drove that fast in a convertible full of water, it would cause the water to essentially fly out of the car. Not sure, but doesn't it seem as if that would happen?

And yes, paint drying is actually rather fascinating, I must say. Seriously. Some colours go lighter as they dry, some go darker. It's really interesting. But then, I'm a former art teacher, so these things interest me.

Don't mess with the Red-back spider.

Sunday, July 06, 2014

An office receptionist got the shock of her life earlier last week when she found a 70cm long snake entangled in the web of a deadly spider.
Tania Robertson, a receptionist at an electrical firm in Perth, came in to work on Tuesday and spotted the sight next to a desk in her office.
The snake, which had obviously died from the spider's poisonous bite, was off the ground and caught up in the web.

Leon Lotz of the Arachnology Department at the National Museum said it was only the second time that he had heard of a snake getting caught in a spider's web.
It is believed the snake got caught in the web on Monday night. But it did not take the spider long to bite it.
A red mark on the snake's stomach was evidence of where the spider had started eating it.

Throughout Tuesday, the spider checked on her prey, but on Wednesday she rolled it up and started spinning a web around it.
She also kept lifting it higher off the ground, while continually snacking on it.


Come to Australia where our spiders eat our snakes !!

    70cm is about 32 inch snake up here. Pretty big, that! I remember my dad catching a coral snake when we lived in Florida in the 1960's and the Snake place down in Miami was gonna pay us $1.00 per inch (USD) - that was "big money" then. But... it died in the trunk of the car from the extreme summer heat. It was about 32 inches, very long for a coral snake, as they are usually in the 24-28" range. Now that's gotta be one seriously big spider to tangle with a snake!? Does Australia have Tarantulas like we have here in the MidWest?? (they are usually friendly unless you attack and provoke them....)...

    Well....I've lived here almost all my life and never saw a red-back spider or a snake. Mind you, I live in the big smoke and not in the country/bush.
It's like saying, when you live in Florida you have to be wary of alligators. I never saw any on Miami South Beach in May, just on a cruise in the Everglades. emoticon

Budget cuts.

Saturday, July 05, 2014

The AMA has weighed in on Joe Hockey’s proposed changes Australia’s health services:

The Allergists voted to scratch them, but the

Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves.

The Gastroenterologists had a sort of a gut feeling about it, but the

Neurologists thought he had a lot of nerve.

The Obstetricians felt he was labouring under a misconception.

Ophthalmologists considered the ideas short-sighted.

Pathologists yelled, "Over my dead body!" while the

Paediatricians said, "Oh, grow up!"

The Psychiatrists thought the ideas were madness, while the

Radiologists could see right through them.

The Surgeons were fed up with the cuts and decided to wash their hands off the whole thing.

The ENT specialists didn't swallow it, and just wouldn’t hear of it.

The Pharmacists thought it was a bitter pill to swallow, and the

Plastic Surgeons said, "This puts a whole new face on the matter..."

The Podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but the

Urologists were pis*ed off at the whole idea.

The Anaesthetists thought the ideas were a gas, but the

Cardiologists didn't have the heart to say no.

In the end, the Proctologists won out, leaving the entire decision up to the ar*eholes in parliament!

The Hypnotist's Therapy.

Friday, July 04, 2014

A woman comes home and tells her husband, "Remember those headaches I've been having all these years? Well, they're gone."

"No more headaches?" the husband asks, ''What happened?"

His wife replies, "Margie referred me to a hypnotist.
He told me to stand in front of a mirror, stare at myself and repeat
"I do not have a headache;
I do not have a headache,
I do not have a headache.."
It worked! The headaches are all gone."

The husband replies, "Well, that is wonderful."
His wife then says, "You know, you haven't been exactly a ball of fire in the bedroom these last few years. Why don't you go see the hypnotist and see if he can do anything for that?" The husband agrees to try it.

Following his appointment, the husband comes home, rips off his clothes, picks up his wife and carries her into the bedroom. He puts her on the bed and says,

"Don't move, I'll be right back."

He goes into the bathroom and comes back a few minutes later and jumps
into bed and makes passionate love to his wife like never before.
His wife says, "Boy, that was wonderful!"

The husband says, "Don't move! I will be right back."
He goes back into the bathroom, comes back and round two was even better than the first time.
The wife sits up and her head is spinning.

Her husband again says,
"Don't move, I'll be right back."
With that, he goes back in the bathroom.

This time, his wife quietly follows him and there, in the bathroom, she sees him standing at the mirror and saying,

"She's not my wife,
She's not my wife,
She's not my wife"

His funeral service will be held on Friday.
