Fun on Friday: My Potty Got Jacked!

My potty got jacked.There are four words you’ll probably never say. Who steals toilets, right?But your problem is you don’t have a solid gold toilet. If you did, it might indeed get jacked. In fact, burglars snatched a 18-karat gold potty valued at about $6 million out of Blenheim Palace in England. I’ve actually written about this toilet before. It was famously offered to President Donald Trump when the White House requested to borrow van Gogh’s from the Guggenheim.Maurizio Cattelan...

Fun on Friday: What’s the Deal With Friday the 13th?

It’s Friday the 13th!You know what? It already seems lucky to me. Heck, it’s Friday. That’s a pretty good start!I’ve never been one to get all torqued up about the number 13 anyway. In fact, I kind of like it. My preferred hockey number is 33 in honor of Patrick Roy and just because it has nice symmetry. But if it’s not available, I’ll go with 13. Why not mock the number gods, right?Truth is I’ve never been particularly superstitious to begin with. Some people are though. I’ve known people...

Did you know that has fact-checked the on multiple occasions? True story.

If you’ve ever watched people trying to operate a Walmart U-scan on a Saturday afternoon, this comes as no surprise. Still, it seems odd that a legit organization dedicated to fact-checking news would waste time with the . I mean,...

As I write this, Hurricane Dorian is taking aim at Florida. What’s fun about that? you might ask. Well, nothing. And I don’t want to minimize the potential for disaster. But the hurricane hasn’t hit yet and the runup to a storm provides a lot of amusement and some educational moments. I just can’t resist.I’ll start with the good news! Florida is about to enjoy an ECONOMIC BOOM! If you believe the Keynesians that is. Now, if you have a shred of common sense, well, maybe it’s not such good...

Fun on Friday: Politicians Are Liars Edition

Politicians are liars.I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you this. Let’s just call it a friendly reminder.I was reminded of this fact as I wrote an article about the anniversary of Richard Nixon slamming shut the gold window for the Tenth Amendment Center. Yup. That anniversary was yesterday (Aug. 15). Bet you didn’t see anything about that in the mainstream media. It’s not a day in history that the mainstream fixates on too much. Because, you know, the results have been less than ideal.If...

And it’s been a tough week.That sentence alone probably proves to most of you that I’m spoiled — except for those of you who live here and are already tired of the summer heat and humidity. But when I say I’m literally a five-minute walk from the beach, most of you would probably trade places with me.As for being old – well – I’m in Florida.But I’m not here on...

Fun on Friday: Go Big or Go Home!

Why buy gold when you can just steal it?At least that’s how a group of men in Brazil figured it.Now, I’m not advocating theft here. But you have to give these guys credit for their moxie. They definitely subscribe to the “go big or go home” theory.According to a report, at least eight men were involved in the heist of approximately $30 million worth of gold and other precious metals at the São Paulo airport. The men disguised their trucks to make them look like Brazilian federal police...
