Manatees mit Süßkartoffeln füttern

Als ausgewiesener Manatee-Ultra muss ich das einfach hier drin haben. Herbst in Kalifornien. (Manatees fressen auch im Sommer und im Frühling Süßkartoffeln, aber es passt halt gerade zum Herbst.)

Note: In the wild it’s illegal to feed manatees, but not for the staff at Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park (pictured). Some of the park’s manatees are injured and undergoing rehabilitation or unable to return to the wild. They are helping them out.

In Mexiko-Stadt haben sie eine Riesenratte aus dem Abwassersystem geholt

Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello und Raphael gefällt das nicht: In Mexiko-Stadt haben sie neulich diese riesige Ratte aus der Kanalisation geholt. Es handelt sich dabei allerdings nur um eine Halloween-Requisite, die wohl vor Jahren mal bei einem Unwetter aus einer Lagerhalle gespült wurde und daraufhin in Abwassersystem der Stadt landete. Und mag die noch so kuschelig sein, wenn ich die gefunden hätte, hätte ich mich nicht wenig erschrocken.

Halloween zu Zeiten sozialer Distanz

Thompson Woodworks hat eine Zip Line gebaut, die Halloween auch zu Zeiten sozialer Distanz möglich macht. Vor die Tür muss er trotzdem.

A little early but here’s my solution for a socially distanced Halloween😁🎃. Yes, I asked my family and neighbors to dress up their kids for my silly video. They did get candy out of the deal. I included some treats for the parents as well. I used a cable and some pulleys to create a zipline. I used a fishing reel to retrieve the beer caddy.

E-Gitarre mit integriertem Kassettenrekorder

Ach, die 80er… Was haben sie nicht rückblickend für Stilblüten hinterlassen. So wie die Casio EG-5, eine E-Gitarre mit integriertem Kassettenrekorder, mit dem sich das auf der Gitarre gespielt gleich auch aufnehmen ließ, was gemessen an den damaligen Möglichkeiten ja auch irgendwie konsequent ist.

The onboard cassette player functions include Play, Rewind, Fast Forward, Stop/Eject, Pause, and most importantly Record. This gives the user the ability to play along with program material, or record their own licks directly to tape. A Tape Pitch dial offers the ability to change the speed of the machine on the fly. The built-in amp has a nice ripping, fuzzy push-button distortion and quite a bit of volume, offering a clean signal as well with the distortion disengaged. It’s just plain fun!

The one-piece maple neck has a slender C shaped profile with modest shoulder and lightly rolled fretboard edges, measuring .805″ deep at the 1st fret and .865″ at the 12th. The maple fingerboard features black dot inlay and stock medium jumbo fretwire. The frets are virtually flawless, and the guitar plays cleanly up the fingerboard with a 12″ radius. The scale length is 24″, and the nut measures 1 5/8″ in width. The headstock features the original Casio logo and set of chrome tuners that turn smoothly and work as they should.

On the body, all of the electronics function accordingly, with a Main Volume slider, Guitar Mix slider, Drive slider, Distortion On/Off button, and Master Volume knob next to the speaker. The cassette works with aforementioned controls, while the Tape Pitch dial, Power On/Of switch, DC 9v jack, Guitar Out, Phones out, and Line In jack are recessed on the treble side lower bout. The guitar is powered by a sextet of batteries located in the back or via an optional 9v power supply (not included).
