New Dangerous, Illegal Drug On The Streets
Heroin laced with carfentanil, a drug used to sedate elephants and bears, is on the streets in the US. Twenty out of two hundred overdoses in Western Pennsylvania proved fatal. It is thought that the combined drug is coming in from China and the Mexican cartels.
Folks, if you use illegal drugs to control your emotions, you will lose the ability to be naturally happy. Try yoga or meditation instead!
Current Vegas Odds On The Election
For the Democratic Party, risk $100 and win $125 (4:1 odds on to win the election). For the Republican Party, risk $25 and win $75 (3:1 against winning). We’ll keep an eye on this!
Our Sun Is A Star
Stars rule the universe! Our sun is one of the 100,000 Billion stars in our galaxy alone, and there are 100,000 Billion galaxies in the observable universe. Life for us began here on earth but we came from “out there.”
There will be more information on the heavenly bodies coming soon in The White Hole Star!
Another Death On An Amusement Park Ride
Adventure means risk; risk can mean injury; injury can result in death. I guess that is the attraction that draws people to dangerous, exciting rides. There is no doubt that Amusement Park rides are thrilling. Whether there is more risk in taking a ride at an amusement park or driving down a busy highway is for the statisticians to work out. However, I would consider myself partially verrückt (insane) to contemplate a ride on a waterslide actually called Verrückt!
A new check is waiting for our next President. The US Presidential pay packet is now $400,ooo per annum, with free transportation and bed and board. Compare this to the next highest democratic countries such as Canada where, in US$ equivalents, the incumbent gets $260,000, Germany’s leader gets $242,000, Japan’s incumbent gets $241,250, and South Africa’s incumbent is paid $206,000. Amongst all of them, it would seem that the South African President is the most overpaid!
The Phenomenal Phelps does it again! He now has an extraordinary 22nd Olympic Gold medal! However, his win was somewhat overshadowed in Canada as the Canadian commentator, Elliotte Friedman, called the entire 200m IM with Ryan Lochte leading, and eventually winning! This has to be the biggest broadcasting blooper in recorded history.
After leading the US team to victory in the Group competition, the amazing pocket dynamo, Simone Biles, took gold in the Individual all-around women’s gymnastics. Simone’s heart and love for gymnastics are as big as her body and show in every routine. Congratulations Simone!
