So my 17yo daughter is upstairs with two friends, all of them loudly talking about whose boobs are bigger.

How’s y’all’s night going?
Damnit, I can't pull the trigger on this joke... I feel like Alex at the end of Clockwork Orange, every time I start to type, I feel a violent dry heave. [Might have something to do with my daughter ordering her first bras on Amazon last week].

No details...

But last week my wife and 21 year old daughter were discussing an absolutely grotesque (but not serious) issue that my sister was having in her lady parts.

Pretty much ticked all of the boxes you don't want ticked.

Mile and half into a mountain bike ride today with my son. Gets a bit aggressive on a jump and over the handlebars. Head into the dirt, shoulder and arm into the ground. Pretty big wreck. F'd the bike a bit. Had to hike back to the parking lot with me pushing 2 bikes and him holding his arm in pain with every step. Toughed in out to the car. Got home and he was worried about people missing his sister's dance recitals web stream. Got him to urgent care and doc made my wife feel bad for not going straight to the ER (this urgent care was straight no Covid cases). X-rays negative and he wants to make sure I get the bike repairs in so we can go again.

Reminds me of a guy named George who was a hand model for awhile.

Not enough to quit her day job at HydroFlask. But whenever she gets these gigs, its a nice little chunk of money for her. And she got rid of her modelling agent a few months ago, so she doesn't have to pay any commission.

So some may know buy my Aunt is a huge champion in special education. She was one of the big engines in Baltimore County Public Schools (pretty much fighting the school system for the kids). She retired last year and only increased the hours she was working and now doing it for free. Anyway she also runs a bunch of programs and camps for this community, with special focus on Austism.

Anyway, my son was talking to my aunt a week or so ago. Somehow they got to the topic if D&D. Anyway, last night my son and my aunt to are working on a way to run D&D for my aunt's summer camp program (now virtual). My aunt offer to pay him like the other counselors. He turned her down and said it was just something he wanted to do for the community.

Not saying that slaying dragons with 20-sided dice is the biggest contribution to special education but the enthusiam and energy I am seeing as my son tries to figure out how to make a great virtual program is pretty cool.

I know your aunt very well. She and my wife speak frequently regarding my son. There is a HUGE need for social group opportunities like this and I would be glad to promote anything they need promoted. Tell Aunt Sara, I say hello.

It is the coolest. I went through a period being obsessed with military aircraft around middle school and early high school. Started with the Flight of the Intruder book series, the unveiling of the stealth F-117 Night Hawk and playing an F-15 Flight simulator game then the televising of the Gulf War. Got to see a Blackbird up close on The Intrepid aircraft carrier turned museum. It's so much smaller than I imagined, but just as off looking.

Anyways, if you want a cool history of the Blackbird and the sister CIA plane the A-12 OXCART, I can't recommend enough Annie Jacobsen's book Area 51: An Uncensored History of America's Secret Military Base. The OXCART was designed to replace the U2, and it's early success led to the Blackbird program. They were separately run programs, and neither knew about the other. This secrecy is what led to a lot of the UFO conspiracies throughout the history of Area 51. The Air Force was unaware of secret aircraft testing, so they genuinely believed shit the CIA worked on may have been UFOs, and the CIA fostered these conspiracies to divert attention from what they are doing. A lot of UFO conspiracy stuff ignited in the early days of testing stealth technology, because pilots and experts unaware of the new technologies believed the craft were impossible with current technology. As cool as the recently confirmed UFO stuff is, I'm fairly confident its hi tech stuff the military is working on that pilots and DoD brass aren't aware exists. The technology testing is always 10-20 years ahead of the public learning about it.

Thanks for the link, very cool stories, and I never heard anything about them. I knew Saab made great jet engines, but never gave much thought to the Swedish Air Force, and never realized they ran hundreds of missions intercepting US spy planes, let alone achieved missile locks on Blackbirds.

Not my kid, but my friend's kid who I've been trying to help get noticed in the feeble ways I can.



He was fantastic all summer on the camp/competition circuit. Preferred walk-on offer from Cincy yesterday and got a handful of new coaches following him as a result, including some guy with #FireUpChips in his twitter profile (aTm, Purdue, Rice, Western Michigan, Bowling Green also joined the party in some capacity).
