There is a contagious disease that turns people into vegetarians.

It is permanent, there is no cure, and no, it is not even a joke (well, according to this video).

I learned that trance music may not have been invented in, but was most influenced by hippies residing in Goa, India in the early 1990s.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

I was in Goa on Christmas day in 1991, in a trance while getting laid my a Russian named Olga. To this day, I wonder if there's a little Bruno roaming the streets of Yaroslavl, Russia.

It looks like there was a spike in enrollment here, possible due to the Wordpress news. We surpassed 70K sooner than I thought it would happen.

Well, I just learned that Mystery Miner used to service strangers! I'm not sure I'd be mentioning that in my personal text.

People are stealing GPS units out of tractors. They only cost $8,000 USD to replace. The only thing they're good for is steering the tractor sans hands and are accurate to one inch during planting, harvesting, etc.

So, the only market to sell the stolen unit at is the one you created by stealing the unit?

Back in early 1940's, when everything in USSR was heavily rationed and appropriated for the war, my grandpa used to steal wire which the fences around people's houses were made out of. He then sold them the service of wiring up their houses for electricity, using their own stolen wire.

Sounds like a lot of effort. It probably would have been easier to sell them the service of replacing the wire fences around their house Smiley

Having electricity in your home was worth way more than having a crappy rusty fence consisting of some wire wrapped around wooden posts I guess.

I forget that we didn't always have electricity. Or the internet.

My dad and his friend were caught stealing a stove and sentence to a Belgium reformatory during his formidable youth. He was released in time to travel with his family aboard the U.S.S America to Ellis Island in the mid 50's. Years later, while working at Pyle National in Chicago, he was a machinist, the only person capable of producing gold plated hardest unknown material at the time for the US military spy planes. Many other parts left the factory hidden in his socks to be sold as scrap to feed his family (his handsome paycheck found its way to the local pubs). He finally got wise and quit selling to the scrap dealer for pennies on the dollar. He sold it for nickels on the dollar to the competition of which he had an insider as the purchasing agent, thus splitting the loot. As a kid, it was great for me, for I was upgraded from using a cane pole to a Abu Garcia 170.

My wife's grandfather killed the "Sheriff" in texas somewhere. Then they lived next door to his grandkids for years in Florida. Awkward.
