Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
Blog Guy, I just lost a bunch of money to a guy flipping coins, and I can’t figure out how he did it. He beat me every time!
Let me guess. Was he playing, “Heads I win, tails you lose?”
Yes! I can’t figure out what went wrong!
Well, this is not generally a good phrase to agree to in the world of wagering. As a helpful illustration, look at these two guys in the photos.
After an hour of gambling, the one who was saying “Heads I win, tails you lose” is blazing away with two machine guns, looking like Rambo and about to leave with several gorgeous chicks wearing stiletto heels.
He is standing on the other guy, whom we will call the loser. That dude has bricks broken around him, tire tracks on his face, and no shirt.
Blog Guy, I heard there has been a huge recall of military weapons because of a safety defect. What can you tell us about this?
It’s true. It turns out if you open that little thingy on the side and stick your forefinger in there and then let the bolt slam against it enough times, your finger will turn purple, as shown by the victim in this photo.
Blog Guy, I see footage of the Secret Service guarding President Obama. It looks like a HUGE task. Has any country found a better way to protect its leaders?
A good question. Yes, of all places, Russia has. Their President, Dmitry Medvadev, protects himself.
I’ll do my best.
I get that question a lot, and I believe this photo illustrates the technique they use.
Blog Guy, I see North Korea is shooting off more of those missiles. I’m worried. What can you tell me about them?
They don’t deal well with their goats.
Just look at these pictures. A North Korean soldier kicking a goat. And they’re practically dragging them in the other photo.
Blog Guy, you’ve given lots of career pointers, especially warning people about jobs to stay away from. If I’m not mistaken, your advice is free?
Yes, my advice is totally gratuitous.
That’s just how it seems to your readers. Any new jobs to avoid?
Yeah. This one in the photo.
I see what you mean! He’s jumping from a helicopter into the water!
You don’t understand. That’s the easy part. He’s called a “mine diver.” After jumping from the chopper he looks for mines and attaches explosives to them, meaning there isn’t one single aspect of this job that appeals to me.
Blog Guy, a couple of months ago you said there were pockets of China that have little gravity. Do you have any more info on that?
Sure. Here are military training photos from Sichuan Province. These guys have bricks hanging on them at all times, even when they sleep, just to keep grounded.
Blog Guy, I read that Australia’s troops in Afghanistan are unhappy with their food. Apparently they don’t like the stuff that the Dutch-run mess hall is serving. Could Dutch food really be that bad?
That sounds yummy. Have you been to Australia? What do they eat there?
Yes, I have. They eat Vegemite, this dark brown food paste that they spread on everything.
