On Veterans Day we ask ourselves why we only celebrate our veterans ONE DAY a year. We understand the significance of 11/11, still, it only seems appropriate to us that we honor the brave men and women who have or who are serving this great nation on a daily basis! That's why we have created this simple gallery - the Gallery of Heroes - so we might set aside a tiny little piece on the internet to pay tribute and respect to those who serve.
It would bring us no greater joy than if you would send us a picture of your hero. Simply email that photo to Scott@BigCountry979.com with a brief bio of the person in the pic. Let us post their photo and draw attention to the sacrifice that they make and/or made as a soldier and to the sacrifice made by that soldier's family. It is the least we could do and it is our pleasure and honor to do so!
Check out all the pics from Saturday October 26th and a big day of fun!
Screw sharks. I can deal with them. It is the thought of this creature that utterly freaks me out. From Gawker...
The creature I mention was reportedly pulled from the Raritan River in New Jersey two summers ago by a Doug Cutler who, as luck would have it, was fishing with a bow and arrow at the time. Cutler spotted the creature, captured it, and a friend posted the above photo to Reddit last week, where it's been viewed over a million times since.
But what is it? According to Outdoor Magazine, it's probably something called a sea lamprey, a type of parasite regularly found in the northern Atlantic region. The lamprey uses its terrifying, alien-like teeth to latch onto its prey before injecting it with digestive fluids that eat away at and kill the fish (or, innocent swimmer). Only one out of seven fish/humans survive the attack. Lampreys are apparently becoming increasingly common in fresh water areas, like the Great Lakes and rivers in New Jersey.
Of course, experts aren't entirely certain it's a sea lamprey and not something more obscure or horrifying. "The photo doesn't allow counting of gill openings (seven per side for sea lampreys), but based on size alone, this does appear to be a sea lamprey," a New York Department of Environmental Conservation spokeswoman told Outside Magazine, according to the New York Daily News. As BuzzFeed notes, that's almost a certain sign that it's an actual monster, and not your run-of-the-mill monstrous river parasite.
Regardless of what it is, I'll be sticking to pools and hot tubs, where the monsters encountered are far more tolerable.
You want to see it? Of coure you do. I gotta warn you - it is sick. Ready? Click HERE.
Strictly in a "hot mess" manner of speaking, of course...
Just in time to help you screw up your New Year's resolution, Pizza Hut created a tool from the devil himself. Known as the Double Sensastion, the mind-blowing concoction features two rings of crust.
The outside crust oozes with three cheeses and contains the first level of pizza which includes turkey ham, peppers, mushrooms and salsa.
We now move onto the inner pizza. This crust is disturbingly stuffed with "cheesy chicken sausage" and houses the inner ring which features smoked chicken and courgette.
The whole thing is topped off with a single cherry, which feels like some sort of deliberate display of utter mania.
It's available in Pizza Hut Singapore. So we're safe.
