Live video of Kawaii’s Kilauea shooting up lava …. (gorgeous!) ….
Didn’t always (read: hardly ever) agree with McCain politically but I’ve always liked and admired him as a person. No doubt a lot of people feel this way. How could one not? He’s an incredibly likeable (if not loveable) guy.
So, it’s terribly sad and unfortunate that his life his ending and in such a painful way.
He’s been a most colorful character on the scene for as long as most can remember. He’s also been one of the most unique politicians of which whose vote you could not predict entirely based on his political party. So many times did this man’s independence cause Claude to jump up and cheer gratefully. Anyway, I’d like to give thanks-aloud to, and for, this guy while he’s alive.
~Thanks, friend ❤️
By this morning we all know this comedian’s face and name, Michelle Wolf. She absolutely killed it last night at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner with her en pointe and scathing routine. Bravo!
Of course, the Orange Cheat-O and his minions were none too happy, complaining (falsely) that she was making fun of
Sasquatch’s Sarah Huckabee Sander’s looks. Yes, the same moronic minions who shamelessly supported the Orange asshat that publicly made fun of and mocked a reporter, Serge Kovaleski, for his physical disability/condition.
Regardless, Michelle Wolf was tremendous. For more of this talented comedian, here’s a link to her HBO comedy special “Nice Lady” … http://dai.ly/x6esngl
For about 2 years now this site has been harassed and plagued by a cyberbully.
I’d have said nothing and continued enduring silently except for the fact that it’s hit up this page approximately
200 300-400+ times/articles in just the span of a couple the last 24 hours … -one person mind you, … one very busy & disturbed person.
Upping the ante or grand finale? -“who knows and who cares”.
Anyway, until the shitshow settles, Litterboxing is being detoured to Litterboxing.com (-where the defective wanker has no effect).
Oh, the drama!
UPDATE (4/27 11:30 am): Aha! … According to the deluge of unpublished Kaczynski-like scribbled comments accumulating in the inbox, the wayward WordPresser was apparently set off into the stuttering and sputtering stalking deep end (beginning way back in May of 2016) over a posting on Noam Chomsky (that declared Noam the sexiest beast in the East).
Sweet Jesus, someone needs to put their (Swiss) cheese back on the cracker.
Cyberstalker, go stalk Noam for God’s sake, leave this lighthearted page out of your antisemitic ramblings & links. Go start your own dark page where you can profess there your reprehensible hoax/”crisis actor(s)” delusions about Sandy Hook, Orlando, Parkland, etc.,. I’m sure there’s a handful of Russian backed Trump voting NRA members who may know how to read and would like to hear from such a kindred spirit.

A happy Saturday St Paddy’s to all celebrating sillies turning Irish for a day.
Stay safe, but not necessarily sober while certainly not somber.
Breaking: Stephen Hawking has passed away. Damn.
Space Oddity … SpaceX’s live feed of the Tesla launch to Mars
The Guardian has published a very illuminating article on YouTube and the secret algorithms that impact viewer searches. They interviewed Guillaume Chaslot, a French computer programmer with a PhD in artificial intelligence, who was one of the engineers creating the algorithms. “YouTube is something that looks like reality, but it is distorted to make you spend more time online,” he said. “The recommendation algorithm is not optimizing for what is truthful, or balanced, or healthy for democracy.”

Who’s excited?!! Claude is!!!!
A few days ago (well, on Oct 19) a comet named C/2017 U1 was discovered by Maui’s (much protested) Pan-STARRS 1 telescope on Haleakala, Hawaii. …. well, hold onto your blurry binoculars and tattoo plans because, after some new observations pegged this fly-by bad-boy as being interstellar, it has now been re-designated (for the time being) as A/2017 U1.
Postdoctoral researcher and astronomer, Rob Weryk, of the University of Hawaii Institute for Astronomy, was the first to notice it and knew instantly that it was special.
“It’s motion could not be explained using either a normal solar system asteroid or comet orbit,” said Weryk. “This object came from outside our solar system.”
It’s believed to be less than a quarter-mile (400 meters) in diameter and is now moving at about 97,200 mph (156,400 km/h) relative to the sun, in the direction of the constellation Pegasus …. that interstellar baby is outta here!!!! -see ya Solar System, no time to chat!
There’s better, in-depth, info out there, Google it and let your imagination run wild ….

No words …
Why do what you will regret?
Why bring tears upon yourself?
Do only what you do not regret,
and fill yourself with joy.
Life of the Buddha
According to traditional dating, Shakyamuni Buddha (Shakya thub-pa), also known as Gautama Buddha (Gau-ta-ma), lived from 566 to 485 BCE in central north India. Buddhist sources contain numerous, varying accounts of his life, with further details appearing only gradually over time. Since the first Buddhist literature was written down three centuries after Buddha’s passing away, it is difficult to ascertain the accuracy of any of the details found in these accounts. Further, just because certain details emerged in written form later than others is not a sufficient reason to discount their validity. Many details could have continued being passed down in oral form after others were written down[…]
The earliest sources for the life of the Buddha include, within the Theravada scriptures, several Pali suttas from The Collection of Middle-Length Discourses (Pali: Majjhima Nikaya) and, from the various Hinayana schools, several Vinaya texts concerning monastic rules of discipline. Each of these texts, however, gives only pieces of Buddha’s life story.
Just wanted to pass along this wonderful and gentle stir from Bill on keeping mindful of being present, being awake and being conscious …
