Guy went thru the ice on next lake south of me.
This time, he was not as lucky as first guy on snowmobile I mentioned earlier.
Divers found body after looking for an hour or so.
Life jackets, people; they are named that for a reason.

Space: sorry for the cynism, but that is a natural selection. There must be some.

Finis: i would call cops, that could be something serious. You never know.

There's just something about that adrenaline rush when your gliding weight starts a crack that zips like lightning from beneath your feet and propagates audibly across the lake.
Here is an excellent example of this phenomenon from Lake Baikal:

***EDIT: Video removed because it was audio recorded from a lake in Germany swiped & spliced into the video from Baikal.
So, two real things, but together they = a 'fake'.

If you can retire then do so now. Else take the lowest job that will feed you. Cease to be productive for the benefit of parasites.

Jury duty. I did not receive a jury calendar that tells when I must phone in to know if there is a trial. Today is the first day I might have to report. A court employee called and said the calendar was returned "not at this address". The address was correct. Postal service problem. Today's trial was canceled so no problem. Trials are canceled when the defendant changes plea to guilty, "plea deal", charges dropped, case dismissed, defendant flees, etc. One time they called in two jury pools at once for a double murder. Thinking was the lawyers would be extra picky and reject more people. Didn't pick me. Good. A pool has about 30 or 40 people from which 13 or 14 jurors are selected (12 + 1 or 2 extras for emergency) for each trial.

I made a foil mask.

Not much activity here.

Jury duty today. I was chosen. Drunk driving. Guilty. Best jurors of all the trials I've been on. They really considered everything like they should. Two trials canceled. I wasn't picked for another. Four more to go.

Drunk driving needed a Jury? I guess there was more to it.

Going to dentist. I hope he can do something today. Little tooth ache for weeks. Procrastination. Yesterday, yeeeow, and unrelenting.

This was my first jury for magistrate court, small stuff and lawsuits. A jury is not required for that but the defendant can ask for one. There were only eight jurors. The defense had nothing so I'll bet they asked for a jury to try emotional appeals ... which they didn't even do well and there were no women on the jury. He was also driving 95 mph (153 kph) in a 75 mph (120 kph) zone but that was not a charge in this case.

:-/ recently crashed my car a bit... ended up in a big bush. No injury. Car is getting repaired, mainly some body panels. Shame to lose that money tho, but it will be like new again. Thats why i wasnt here much, coz i was busy getting some new parts to fix it.
I was also looking for some photo management CMS i can host on my webhosting, so i can make a photo blog from CZ nature.
