Google Image Search Could Use Some Fine Tuning

Searching for an image of Rear Admiral Alan G. Kirk, I get a pressure cooker, a welder’s helmet, a cash counting machine, a handheld radio, a Nazi-looking guy, some sort of flange, a set of mixing bowls, and a few other things that are  definitely not Rear Admiral Alan G. Kirk.

Sharps Container in Indian Casinos

Sharps Container in Indian Casino Men's Room

Sharps Container in Indian Casino Restroom

Does anybody else find it strange to find a sharps container in a restroom. On a recent trip to the Pacific Northwest, I found these in almost all of the Indian casinos.

On the one hand, this seems like a good idea, most states have rules against disposing of syringes (bio hazard) in the regular trash, but on the other hand, I can see these things being broken into for the used syringes.

Are that many diabetic Indians?

Bulgarians Plan Tourist Attraction in the Middle of a Lake

What Could Possibly Go Wrong Here?


Seuthopolis is the most famous underwater archaeological site in Bulgaria – it is the only completely studied Thracian city in Bulgaria. The city is not only unique as an archeological and historical site, but it’s also a “treasure-house” containing vast knowledge for the everyday life of the Thracians. The city was completely uncovered and studied between 1948 and 1954, during the construction of “Koprinka dam”, near Kazanlak. The research team was led by prof. Dimitar Dimitrov, thoroughly studied and photographed the site, before it was covered by the waters of the Koprinka dam.


Kind of looks like a giant drain plug in the middle of the lake.
