    Amidst the chaos brought about by the legalization of same-sex marriage in the United States, a love story unfolded and ended at the altar over the weekend. You can say that the bride and groom will live happily after as soon as they tied the knot. But it’s not like any other wedding you know.

The two robots were wed in Japan over the weekend, and this could be the event that will confirm what anti-gay marriage advocates fear the most – humans could marry robots, animals or…

    How much are you worth in onions? You don’t know, right? The exciting news is that supermarkets IN YOUR TOWN are getting self-service counters where you can scan an item’s bar code and then jump up and sit on the weighing scales yourself. After learning my value in onions (more than US$130!), I was planning to work through a wide range of supermarket items (just think what it does to your self-esteem to know your worth in chocolate or floor mops). But I had to leave, as my embarrassed children had run off, shouting: “He’s not with us.” (Children have NO respect these days.) That…

    How high must an American president get to escape the sweltering heat of the Washington summer? About 1,700 feet. That's how high Camp David, the official presidential retreat, sits in the relatively cool Catoctin Mountains, 62 miles from the White House. Maybe -- more on that later. How many times has President Barack Obama retreated there? 38. His mountain stays there have spanned all or part of 91 days -- including his overnight stay Saturday with some old high school and college friends in town to celebrate the president's 54th birthday this coming week. Obama and high school buddies from…

So, now I’m grumpy, behind in work, in pain, uncomfortable, and hungry. It’s shaping up to be an interesting day. When I first glanced at today’s optical illusion, I immediately noticed that the squares—much like me this morning—were all bent out of shape.

Some days I probably drink more coffee than I should. I can tell, because I start to get the shakes and the things around me, I swear, take on a life of their own! Coffee may make some people more alert and functioning, but too much coffee for me makes the world go weird!

    Update, 10 July 2015: When I first discovered that The Dollop was using our writings in some of their episodes, I surmised that it was a callous and cynical plot to profit from others’ efforts. But following a turbulent yet predominantly civil conversation with Dave Anthony of The Dollop, I believe that their harm was not intentional, but rather a confusion of copyright, an understandable error. I received no apology, but I think I observed remorse. There are plans afoot to set things right, the matter is tentatively settled. Amid discussions involving this post on social media, I have…

The “here” Vinson referred to was a nook just outside the telephone equipment room in the employees-only portion of the second floor of the hotel. The “it” was a curious piece of equipment of unknown origin loitering conspicuously in the cramped side room. It was a metallic gray box about the size of a desk, with a smaller box attached on top near the rear right corner.

The giant pile, located near Central Terminal on the Queen City’s east side, has been around since the ‘Snowvember’ storm last year, and seems unaffected by the summer heat. According to New York state climatologist Mark Wysocki, the “original problem started back in November.” After the storm, city workers had no place to put all the excess snow so they decided to dump it in a vacant lot. Then they used bulldozers to flatten and compact the pile. By doing that, they…

    Moto
    29 Jul 2015 | 4:32 am
    A number of new laws have been introduced on UK roads this year, with restrictions on smoking, drug-driving and even a change to the type of license motorists carry. Here is a listed explanation of those changes, which all motorists should make themselves aware of before they next get behind the wheel. A change to Scotland’s drink-drive laws Since the end of 2014, the legal drink-drive limit in Scotland has been lower than the rest of the United Kingdom.

    Formula One is an extremely popular sport, with people tuning into races to watch the participants racing at exhilarating speeds.

    As a driver, it’s important to take the issue of car security seriously. After all, having a vehicle broken into or stolen isn’t a pleasant experience. As well as the inconvenience this can cause, it can leave you out of pocket. Even if you can claim for the loss or damage through your insurance policy, you’ll have some costs to cover. As it states on the website of specialist brokers Chill.ie, all policies include some level of excess, meaning you won’t be able to recover all of your expenses. The good news is, there are simple steps you can take to increase the security of your…

    We’re getting rather used to revelations about sharp practice in the banking sector. The row about HSBC’s tax services to rich clients has raised, yet again, crucial questions about the business culture which allows such scandals to emerge. One common idea is that those involved have lost their “moral compass” and succumbed to the imperative of pure greed as they employ subterfuge to do things which end up doing harm to the general public. There is a problem with these approaches. Those who use the “greed-hypothesis” tend not to define what they mean by “greed”, as distinct…

    Boca Chica Key is an island in the lower Florida Keys approximately 4.8 km east of the island of Key West, which itself is about 244 km south-west of Miami. The island is mainly composed of salt marshes and is the home to the largest Naval Air Station in south Florida. The U.S. Navy's presence in Key West dates back to 1823 when a Naval Base was established to stop piracy in this area. The lower Keys were home to many wealthy shipping merchants whose fleets operated from these waters. This drew the interest of notorious pirates such as Blackbeard and Captain William Kidd, who used the…

The gorge takes its most spectacular form about 15 km from Tinghir. Here, for about 600 meters, the canyon walls closes in to a mere 10 meters from each other, while the sheer and smooth rock walls rise up to 160 meters on each side.

Scarecrows are usually built from straw and wood, but in medieval Britain, scarecrows were young boys who were tasked with the responsibility of scarring away birds. Known as bird scarers or bird shooers, they patrolled wheat fields carrying bags of stones, and chased away any crow or starling that tried to land in the fields by waving their arms and throwing the stones.
