Sure.  Never realized or even thought about it but I guess naval encounters with big mammals are not unusual in the Arctic.
Here is a Walrus that decide to sun itself on a Russian sub.

I wonder if the walrus enjoyed the vodka and pickled herring!

Speaking of Walrus's, this is a weird and disturbing movie. Ugh

Downfall of the Noid
« Reply #650 on: January 12, 2019, 08:27:28 PM »
Started thinking about the Domino's Noid of yesteryear and looked into why it disappeared.   It seems there was a real guy named Noid that did not appreciate
the ad campaign and felt that the pizza chain was attacking him personally with it. He then walked into his local Domino's with a .357 looking for a little payback.

Dang, how did I miss that!

Dominoes hasn't had great luck with their ad campaigns, ending their ''30 minuets delivery or free'' slogan when they began getting sued by people being injured or killed by delivery drivers trying to beat the clock..

Liars Club

Fun video of the old Liars Club show.  4 Celebs spin a yarn about a weird doodad and the contestants have to
pick out who is telling the truth.

Beyond Reason
« Reply #653 on: January 13, 2019, 09:05:23 AM »
Clip from the old game show Beyond Reason that pitted an Astrologer, Graphologist and a Clairvoyant against each other to identify a
hidden guest.   

Here the panel struggles a bit with Stan Lee:


Here Irene Hughes guesses J. Allen Hynek straight away:

The Astrologer correctly guesses Betty Hill:

I was going to rant about being a landlord... Well, all I can say is the $3000+ I paid for my dream contract (in such an unfriendly state like California) was well worth it after one 6-month tenant screwed me and themselves.

I will no longer be a landlord soon.

Eh, nevermind...

You put a hit out on a tenant?  Sometimes enough is enough

@Walks_At_Night  I loved that game show.  Especially the setting that seemed it was in a tavern. (at least to me)
I know there was a remake, but I always hoped it would come back with the original vigor.   :)

I loved it as well.  In poking around on Youtube, I found an episode of an earlier version that had Rod Serling as the host:

Youtube bans "Birdbox Challenge."  Amazing that people would do this stuff, anyway.

"Bird Box Challenge wey be one of di latest dangerous prank for YouTube, start afta Netflix launch one feem, Birdbox wey show as di movie characters dey waka wit blindfold to survive. Na so some pipo wey watch di feem begin blindfold dia eyes dey drive, waka for train track and oda dangerous tins."
