Hope you all have a good evening. I have to get off here and do some dinner preparations and get snacks together for the UK game tonight. It is at Rupp Arena and after the beat down Tn gave them I hope the Big Blue Nation will cheer them on to prevail without their big man and put a "W" in the column. haha

Before I go I had to post this article I ran across reading the world wide news. I know Una would of got a big kick out of it:

Let your flatulence fly, scientists urge passengers

Flying increases flatulence, according to an article published Friday in the peer-reviewed New Zealand Medical Journal, and passengers should release the gas -- or risk painful medical consequences.

Lead author Dr. Jacob Rosenberg, professor of surgery at the University of Copenhagen, said he always wondered why he had more flatulence flying than when on the ground. Then, after a recent trip, he opened his bag and noticed a water bottle "almost smashed by the change in ambient pressure," said Rosenberg. "And then I thought of the mechanisms of increased bowel air volume when flying."

It's simple. When altitude increases, pressure decreases. According to the thermodynamic principal known as the "ideal gas law," as pressure drops, volume increases. While cabins are pressurized to compensate, the mechanisms can only do so much. When the plane is at a cruising altitude of 33,000 feet, inside it's still the equivalent of 8,000 feet above sea level. That's a lot of physics bearing down on your intestines.

There's a clear medical rationale for releasing the gas. Holding back flatulence can lead to "discomfort and even pain, bloating, dyspepsia and pyrosis," according to the article, titled "Flatulence on Airplanes: Just Let it Go," which surveyed previously published research and studies. It also notes that holding back flatulence has been suggested as a major risk factor for diverticular disease, a condition where pouches develop in the wall of the colon.

But just try telling that to your seatmate.

Instead, Peter Post, a director at Emily Post institute and author of "Essential Manners for Men," recommends that travelers "hold it in until they have the opportunity to get up and release the gas in the restroom."

If you can't get to the lavatory in time, for instance, if there's turbulence and the fasten seat belt light is on, "be as discreet as possible" and release the gas, said Post. "People understand the situation and let it go."

Unfortunately, no graceful phrase or gesture exists to completely smooth over the social awkwardness of releasing your personal flatulence inside a confined space where 50 percent of the air is recirculated. An "excuse me" can really only go so far. It can even draw its own unwanted attention.

"Almost anything you say can create embarrassment and make the situation more difficult," said Post. "Your best bet is to keep your mouth shut."

The article's authors suggested airlines install seats embedded with active charcoal, which can absorb intestinal gases. Carriers could also pass out blankets with the odor-absorbing compound sewn in.

Travelers could also be subjected to a methane breath screening and those with higher methane content could be assigned seats in a restricted area of the plane near the lavatory. Another proposed solution involved the use of rubber pants with air containers to collect passed gas.
As for passengers, they could wear underwear lined with active charcoal, the article said.

Rosenberg said that though the paper had "a humorous direction," it's based on published research. "The background is serious," he said.
But fliers prone to gas should take preventative measures. Post suggests Beano.

Haha, can you see Una with a Depend on full of charcoal, going through airport body scanners. With all the beans he enjoyed he probably did defy the "ideal gas law".

Sure miss him.

Hi, Abeliever, Nope, Roaming, AW, and the ret of the gang. Good evening to you. Long day today. My eyelids are drooping, and I'll have to have a siesta soon, but glad you folks are posting more. For awhile, I was getting worried the the Bird Thread was dying.

Not so funny really. Some think it may have been a test of a bunker busting bomb made by Boeing and sold to Israel which is meant to target Iran's deep underground nuclear enrichment facilities which was dropped from outer space, like the one discussed in this article.

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-01-14/boei...

It appears that the Russians (or a UFO) may have been the ones who shot it down prior to impact according to some videos. You can see evidence of what appears to be a missile striking the meteor (or bunker busting bomb) prior to exploding.

A lot of covert operations are happening today which the average joe will never know about because he will never even consider the possibility of anything other than what is reported in the mainstream news...and we all know how reliable that is these days.

Although it is politically incorrect these days, I have to agree. Social engineering is going on big time in the schools. That's why I pay to have our little guy in a private school setting where progressive sentiment is not quite as obvious.

That wordpress.com website is very interesting, Blue. You might like it as well, Abeliever. Lots of info. about the Louisiana sinkhole and general problem of gas and methane throughout the bayous. It also has interesting info. on increased seismic activity in the New Madrid. Unfortunately, my computer is running very slowly tonight and I am having difficulty downloading the videos. Will try tomorrow.

Good night, everyone. Sweet dreams and may the angels guide you through the night. Lala

Well back at it again. So early my dear old rooster thinks it is daylight already , just because I turned on the news...
We all have those days when , we want to just give up on this thing called life and it is really hard not to .. My day was yesterday.. Took alot of kind words,and praying to keep me inline.. But I was a lady in the end , and a real southern kind one at that..:)
Tell your dog AW if I could I would sing him to sleep... I do my 150 pound lab most of the time , When I began to sing , he goes straight to sleep, may be out of wantin me to hush..lol But the funny thing is , some songs he sings along , he really does think he is human.. Although , like me way overweight , and loves his sweats too much, he is quite awesome in his on special way...
Well yall take care and great day to each and everyone of you great new found friends...

One day, much too soon, the end will come to each of our precious brief lifetimes; knowing this, live fearlessly; leave unchallenged not a single obstacle between yourself and the realization of your most joyous dreams."
so true

What we can accomplish on our own is hardly noteworthy. We try our best, but the results aren't exactly graceful flowing music. But when we trust in the hands of a Greater Power, our life's work truly can be beautiful.

Next time you set out to accomplish great feats, listen carefully. You can hear the voice of the Master, whispering in your ear, "Don't quit. Keep playing."

May you all play with all your hearts , and may that great voice , coach you on your way... Blessings.

Today's emphasis on thursday should agree with tomorrow being friday, who is nothing, if not terribly jealous of saturday. Passions may rise as the tender crisp bacon cheddar ranch opposes intense whopper, setting off fireworks. This could work to your advantage if you are trying to get someone's sandwich, but be careful not to come on too strong as burger king slows. A delicate touch is needed if you want to light a fire under someones arse.
