Stunning pictures

The Aurora borealis photographed in the early morning
hours in the Arctic Circle.
 Also known as the northern lights, 
the spectacular light show is created when fast-moving
 charged particles from the sun hit 
the Earth's magnetic field at its poles.

Limestone pinnacles seen in China's Zhangjiajie National Forest Park 
are what remain of quartzite sandstone mountains 
after millions of years of water erosion.

Buildings in New York City at night,
 as seen from the Empire State Building.

The Dolomites in Italy are among the world's most distinctive mountain scapes.

A view of waterfalls in Croatia's Plitvice Lakes National Park.
 The park is made up of cascading lakes that range in color
 from green to blue to grey.

Terraced paddy fields wind up from a riverside in China. 
These man-made structures allow communities
 to harvest rice in mountainous areas


The annual Broadway Bomb is an unsanctioned 8-mile race through Manhattan
 from West 116th Street down to the Financial District on skateboards.
 The New York Police Department was out in full force
 to stop the participants on October 12th,
 but as you can see from this video of one intersection, 
they weren't very successful. 
Racing skateboarders generally move faster than cops with a net.
Still, out of somewhat over 100 skaters, 
and several were handcuffed. 
The question is:
 which is more dangerous overall, 100 skaters in the streets of the city,
or police officers movings nets around intersections?


The Red Cross was 150 this week


"Africa" by Toto, Performed by the Crew of the Bourbon Peridot, West Africa 2013.

A cowboy was out looking for a job one day.
 He stopped at a rancher’s house to ask the rancher for a job.

This rancher looks over the cowboy and thinks to himself,
 "Waal, he looks OK, ten gallon hat, 
denim shirt, denim pants --
 but he's wearing tennis shoes.
 Guess I'll see what he can do."

The rancher tells the cowboy, 
"OK, let's see what you can do.
 Go rope that calf over there and brand it."

The cowboy has the calf branded before
 the little doggie knows what hit him. 
Well, the rancher is a bit impressed,
 but still not too sure, so he gives him another test.

"Now break that there bronc,"
 he points to a wild-looking stallion in a corral. 
The cowboy saddles and rides the bronc,
 wildest ride you've ever seen. 
After 5 minutes, the bronc is so tired he settles down
 and the cowboy hands the rancher a tame horse.

This rancher is VERY IMPRESSED!

"OK, son, you got the job.
 There's just one question I gotta ask you. 
You rope and ride real well, 
and you look mostly like a cowboy except 
for them dawgone tennis shoes.
Why don't you wear cowboy boots instead of tennis shoes?"

The cowboy looks the rancher in the eye and says,
 "I would wear cowboy boots --
 but then people would think I was a truck driver!"

Q: Why does a chicken coop have only two doors?
A: Because if it had four it would be a sedan!

Q: What did the termite say when he walked into the bar?
A: Where is the bar tender?

During the Revolutionary War,
 there was a small encampment of patriot soldiers the woods.
 Before they went to bed that night, 
they tied chickens (they were saving them for a special meal when needed)
 to the trees around the campground. 
Sure enough, some British loyalists were stumbling through the woods 
that night and frightened the chickens. 
Their screams and clucks woke the Patriots 
and they were able to defeat and capture the entire group of British loyalists.
 A few nights later, the cook prepared the chickens for dinner.
 The soldiers said, "This is really good. What do you call it?"
 The cook replied,
 "Chicken Catch a Tory."
