Not so much made me smile as chuckle at the irony. Fortunately no one was seriously injured. But seriously, a loaded gun, with a bullet in the chamber, in a safety class?


(CNN) -- Oh the irony. An Ohio man was shot in the arm. At a gun safety class.
Michael Piemonte was attending a concealed-carry class with his wife Alison in central Ohio's Fairfield County over the weekend. Such classes are required for anyone wanting carry a concealed weapon in the state.
There were 29 students in the lecture-type class, Piemonte said. He was sitting in the front row.
While the instructor was demonstrating a self-defense techniques, the gun went off.
The bullet struck Piemonte in the arm. Even he didn't realize what had happened.

Watching the cadets at summer training, playing in the band, my kid was one of them, she's been staffing all summer and has still been able to take lessons.

Watching a segment on BBC Breakfast where they were talking about mosquitos, and best ways of avoiding being bitten. Bill Turnbull said he was very vulnerable, and as the guest had bought a box containg live mossies into the studio, he but his hand in through the sleeve, and proved it by bsing bitten by about 5. The other presenter, Louise Minchin, also volunteered, but when she went to put her hand through the sleeve into the box, for some reason the box front fell off, and some of the mossies escaped. Cue a quick end to the segment.

For the pedants, something to play with, I think.

My daughter shared this in FB, I was struck by the permutations of meaning.

Got a very serious conservative elderly librarian to repeat the phrase, "Grow Your Own Smegma Worms."

Oh yes, by all means, let's outsource our food production to China! What could possibly go wrong?




Zoo In China Swaps Dog For Lion, Hopes No One Notices

http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/...no-one-notices

"Mrs. Liu told the Beijing Youth Daily: "The zoo is absolutely trying to cheat us. They are trying to disguise dogs as lions."
And, the dog-for-cat swap wasn't the only attempt to pull the wool over the eyes of zoo patrons: There was also a domestic dog housed in the wolf pen, and a white fox was found pacing the leopard exhibit."

That's the beauty part. If it doesn't work out as a zoo attraction they'll just mince it up and sell it to Americans as chocolate sprinkles or an iPhone.
