"The Daily Nonsense reportĒ showing on http://BruceDowns.Diaryland.com is just what the name implies, just nonsense. I update this nonsense everyday with links to a wide variety of weird, funny, strange, and just plain entertaining sites that the Internet, so frequently, provides us. On occasion I may feature links that doesnít necessarily meet the previously mention criteria but are my personal thoughts and observations. I do put witty taglines on this nonsense and mail them to your mother on occasion, especially when you have been bad. So have fun, make comments, and come back often.

Meanwhile on Mars

The Spirit rover has reached Bonneville Crater, a primary mission objective, and snapped photos of the far side of the crater rim with its navcam. But what is that object to the left side?

I thought at first it was just a digital photo artifact, but seeing as how the flash of white appears in several photos from Spirit's navcam on Sol66, my next thought was ALIEN BUILDINGS!!!

Okay, not really. My next thought was that it might be the lander's backshell or heatshield. So I looked up a map of the rover's intended route, and orbital images of the landing site with labels. Apparently the lander's heatshield had impacted a nearby crater. Take a look at the photos, the maps, and the scales. Iím thinking it's definitely the lander heatshield. What do you think?

No word on it yet from NASA, JPL, www.Space.com, or the major news outlets. Can Nonsense beat them to an announcement?

Lisa goes to the hospital
Category: personal - posted by: Bruce.
Yesterday morning Lisa called me at the office because she was sick and had tremendous back and abdominal pain. I told her Iíll leave right a way and should be home in about 45 minutes, damn 32 miles drive in Atlantaís traffic. First of all let me tell Lisa has a very high tolerance for pain, so I knew something must be really wrong. So I called Jan, our next door neighbor, and asked her to please go over and check her out and if she thinks calling 911 was necessary then for to please do it. When I got home there was an ambulance and a firetruck in front of our house. I parked my car in front of a neighbors house and ran inside our house to help get Lisa in the ambulance. After the Catscan it was determine that Lisa had a 4 mm kidney stone. Lisa was release around 4:00 PM. Today Lisa is doing great.

Being at Wal-Mart I thought she would have gotten away with it

Damn out of all the places this had to happen in my own state. Only a Wal-Mart customer would try and forge a million dollar billÖ Of course you can go to www.TheSmokingGun.com for more info. Maybe Alice thought the Wal-Mart cashiers are rather dumb, because she actually just tried to pass off this $1 million bill at one of the retail chain's megastores.

Who would buy That! From ebay
You are bidding on what I BELIEVE is a possessed empty can of Coca Cola. We're talking SERIOUS collectors item here. Now for the story on what happened.

This started as a typical can of Coke, likely purchased at an Albertsons in Santa Barbara, CA sometime last summer. Somehow during a normal drunken binge the night before heading abroad for a vacation, this missed getting consumed. How? I dunno, probably scrapped the rum and cokes for straight rum shots, or passed out. It then traveled to Australia, and back again, seeing many sights along the way. Yes there is more to the storyÖ select the link to read more.
