What I have learned about myself from Buzzfeed…
During medieval times I would live in the Astoria neighborhood of New York City transported to the state of New Mexico. If I was president, I'd be Woodrow Wilson. If I were an apostle, I'd be St Phillip. OTOH if I were on the Firefly crew, i'd be Cap'n Tightpants. If I happened to become a comic book villain, I'd be Mr Freeze but as an animated dog, I'd be Mr Peabody. My literary soulmate would be Henry Thoreau.
Not a fan of Woody, never heard of Astoria, HATE New Mexico, never read Thoreau, Mr Freeze is kinda dumb, I'm cool with Mr Peabody & medieval times but I alway thought of myself as more of a Wash. St Phillip? beats me…
What's sad is that somebody is probably taking this nonsense to the bank.
Mr Freeze in New Mexico?

I'm posting this here because I know my vast readership knows a lot of violent juvenile delinquents.
It's an odd bit of advertising - posting the victim's picture on a wanted poster. Why WKRC is so prominent is puzzling, too.
Anyway, after a cold crappy winter, a nice warm sunny day came along & Mr Tramble was sitting on his front porch when accosted by 2 male black teenagers who shot him when he refused to give up his property. The bullet severed his spine, paralyzing him and, as I write this, the guy is on life support at the hospital.
It was a weekday just after noon when the kids should have been in school. The police reported that because truancy is so high in the city, it's hard sorting through all the recorded truants.
Police are distributing these posters thru Northside but the kids likely are not from that neighborhood & are probably steering clear of it. The only description is 2 black boys. That narrows it down….
The maggots were skipping school that Mr Tramble paid for. They probably live in subsidized housing Mr Tramble pays for. They probably get free food Mr Tramble pays for. But that wasn't enough for these vicious toads. Someone knows who these brats are. Someone must suspect them. Are any mothers wondering if it was one of their boys?
This shit is fucked up.

Seriously - Tesla guy or Bugatti girl ?
In an article over at the Globe & Mail, the author is pleased to report that more male models are being used at car shows. While women in skimpy, clingy outfits (or just swimsuits (because cars & swimming just go together)) have traditionally been the norm, the guys just wear street clothes and some of 'em are positively dorky. Why aren't the guys rolling around on the hoods in their skateboard culottes?

…and since it popped into my head, I'm sure it popped into everybody else's.
So what would you want to be buried in? Your usual attire? Something more formal? A Batman costume?
You can go biodegradable
The Siberian Ice Maiden wore a 3 foot high hat that necessitated an 8 foot coffin.
Some more crap to ponder

His claim to protect the taxpayers' dollars by not paying $1.2M to move a tenant with a lease expiring in 2017 might be laudable but since it comes with wanting to blow $12M on a garage that seems to have no future & ditch $60M in private investment that would bring hundreds of jobs & tax paying residents to the city - well, that's a little weird.
From the Currier:
'The support for the development has been overwhelming with the hundreds of new jobs, millions in economic impact, enhancing the downtown skyline, removal of Pogue's Garage - a real eye sore to the downtown - and bringing a needed cutting edge urban grocery,' Flaherty said.Now Cranley & Seelbach have enlisted 3CDC, not a particularly unbiased actor, to analyse the deal (that's already been analysed).
Meanwhile, Cranley's fiscal prudence has only widened the budget gap.

Cincinnati road crews are almost $5M over budget this year after buying an extra $2.8M of extra salt. Is this yet another Saltgate? Will Charlie mount another investigation into the city employees who flagrantly squander our tax dollars?
