I had this really great idea for a post cross my mind while I was watching the morning news but now that I am actually sitting here at the computer, do you think I can remember what the hell it was? (This is happening more often lately!)
Remember that final scene in the movie 'Planet of the Apes' where Charlton Heston rounds a corner and sees the top of the statue of Liberty poking out of the sand on a beach?
Well guess what kids, if the oceans rise as much as scientists think they will ........, THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN!
https://www.yahoo.com/news/statue-liberty-other-world-sites-000000460.html?ref=gsThe United Nations released a report Thursday saying 31 natural and cultural World Heritage sites in 29 countries are vulnerable to the effects of climate change: rising temperatures, rising sea levels, intensifying storms, longer droughts and so on.“World Heritage and Tourism in a Changing Climate” outlines how these consequences of climate change could damage or destroy the Statue of Liberty in the U.S., the Shiretoko peninsula in Japan, Stonehenge in the U.K., and many others.“Globally, we need to better understand, monitor and address climate change threats to World Heritage sites,” Mechtild Rössler, director of UNESCO’s World Heritage Centre, said in a news release. “As the report’s findings underscore, achieving the Paris Agreement’s goal of limiting global temperature rise to a level well below 2 degrees Celsius is vitally important to protecting our World Heritage for current and future generations.”
And don't think we would get off scot-free here in Canada:
Old Town Lunenburg.
This town, founded in 1753 on the southern coast of Nova Scotia, is considered to be the best example of a planned British colonial settlement townscape in North America. Rising seas could put some of its coastal land permanently underwater, and lead to damage to buildings and roads from storm surges and flooding.
Folks I keep saying that octopi and squids are aliens that were stuck here on Earth after their spaceship crashed, and nobody believes me ........, but get a load of THIS!
Not only that, but scientists now say they have uncovered one of the crash sites of an alien ship and are in the process of inspecting and analyzing it!
(Now a lot of you might think this is just a photograph of when the Millennium Falcon crashed into the sea a few years ago ......., but don't be fooled kids, THIS IS AN ACTUAL ALIEN CRAFT!)
There are a lot of things that astonish and confuse me in this world folks, but this is perhaps one of the most extreme examples.
Some species of fruit flies can produce coiled-up sperm more than 2 inches long, which is 20 times the length of their own body. That's a thousand times as long as than human sperm. And if a human male of average height produced sperm of the same size as the fruit fly's (relative to body size), it would stretch a staggering 120 feet long.O.K. Now here's the deal, bunky!
Why would anyone want to know this enough that they would do some research on it? (And would they be really interesting, or really boring, at a party?)
AND FINALLY: Things are not the best in Tinseltown, boys and girls!
Johnny Depp and Amber Heard got married about fifteen months ago, but she is quite a bit younger and still wanted to do the party life ......, so things started to get a bit rocky!
A judge ordered Johnny Depp to stay away from estranged wife Amber Heard after she accused the Oscar-nominated actor of repeatedly hitting her during a recent fight and leaving her face bruised.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Carl H. Moor also ruled that Depp shouldn't try to contact Heard until a hearing is conducted on June 17.
Heard said in a sworn declaration that Depp threw her cellphone at her during a fight Saturday, striking her cheek and eye. She submitted a picture of her bruised face when she applied for a restraining order Friday. She also wrote that the actor pulled her hair, screamed at her and repeatedly hit her and violently grabbed her face.
