This morning a nine-storey office building was brought down using 420kg (924lb) of dynamite. Here's what a nearby resident posted after learning it was a demolition job:
Words fail me.
Somebody needs to photoshop in a scale figure flying through the air...
I’m still livid over the fact that Stephen Spielberg killed that last triceratops.
Tastes like turkey ;)
Be sure to use a Spotted Owl gravy. :=) Delicious I’m sure.
11. For to dihyte a swan. Tak & vndo hym & wasch hym, & do on a spite & enarme hym fayre & roste hym wel; & dysmembre hym on þe beste manere & mak a fayre chyne, & þe sauce þerto schal be mad in þis manere, & it is clept:
12. Chaudon. Tak þe issu of þe swan & wasch it wel, & scoure þe guttes wel with salt, & seth þe issu al togedere til it be ynow, & þan tak it vp and wasch it wel & hew it smal, & tak bred & poudere of gyngere & of galyngale & grynde togedere & tempere it with þe broth, & coloure it with þe blood. And when it is ysothe & ygrounde & streyned, salte it, & boyle it wel togydere in a postnet & sesen it with a litel vynegre.
Apparently, people routinely ate swan a *long* time ago.
LOL Olde school cookin.
Don’t show that to any Albanians
Cajuns will eat anything.
Moochelle on a toilet eating a bowl of beans?
Maybe I’m slow today...
...but I don’t get the “fail” in this.
Someone did a demolition job in the writer’s neighborhood, and he didn’t know that is was a pre-planned, approved, controlled demolition job.
He (presumably) thought it was something nefarious, hence he used the term “bomb”. Yes, a bomb ALSO (typically) contains dynamite, but they are “adversarial” devices, not “tools”.
So the writer was happy to hear that someone wasn’t doing some large-scale evil in the neighborhood. That ain’t a ‘fail’....
Yeah, a bomb would have been so much worse... / sarc.
There are 5000 permits a year for taking Tundra Swan in N.C.. They taste like Canada Geese, but are much bigger. A large retriever is highly recommended.
