Strange Happenings


Suburban Smokestack, originally uploaded by carolWorldLeader.

In the, "now I've heard everything, and this time I really mean it," department, the other day I heard Bruce Hornsby and Ricky Skaggs do a bluegrass version of Rick James' Superfreak. ("She's a very kinky girl...the kind you don't take home to mother....")

In other, um, "kinkier" news, word has it that Flickr is messing up, and this time we mean in a big way. It seems they are now getting people's pictures mixed up. Mixed up as in you might see somebody else's pictures in your stream. Wouldn't be such a bad thing except that Flickr is now used for image hosting for tons of websites and, well, let's just say the porno industry loves it too.

Can't you just imagine the screw up's this is going to create? I mean, some poor, innocent little kid is going to try to go to some SpongeBog, Cartoon, or Bugs Bunny website, only to find a smiling, happy porno image. Call me crazy but that's not the kind of "tickle me Elmo" you want your kids to write home about, right?

Lastly, in entirely "non kinky" news (I hope) I just got back from a trip up to Burnet and Liberty Hill. I will start posting images once, well, Ha! once Flickr "settles down" a bit.

Hey, stranger things have happened.

Until next time...

On the upside, imagine all the people going to porn-o-rama.com or whatever, only to find pictures of duckies and bunnies and kitties (oh, my!)

I still think the government should get involved in this. I mean, the porno kings have had "whitehouse.com" for so long, the feds ought to take over hotkentuckyschoolgirls.com and put up nationally commissioned studies of the bo weevil. Then Flickr would be in the clear, since they could just claim they didn't know who was serving what to whom.

Don't you think that would be some kind of justice?
