The Pet Bunny-Rabbit?


Kid Frank
Contributor:Devon





My stepdad, John , is really into trains.


Seriously. He's got an insane model train layout in the basement, with just enough room for the washer and dryer in the corner. The rest is all trains.


He also subscribes to Model Train magazine, and, when we were all younger, he would stop the car on the way to just about anwhere, because he wanted to take pictures of some train-related damned thing. We were damn thrilled. Every damn time. I promise.


So, one time, when I was about 11, we stopped at a railyard of some sort that was in or near Dover, NH. (Memory's a bit fuzzy now.) And we noticed, down in the turntable, there was little white bunny hopping along, looking like it needed help. (By 'turntable', by the way, I don't mean 'record player.' In railroad terms, a turntable is a big circular pit, about as deep as a swimming pool, with a sort of 'bridge' running through the middle; Basically the idea is to connect a train from one track to another, at one of these places.)


For some reason, I was volunteered to be dropped down into this pit, to rescue the bunny. Thinking about it now, this bunny was very easy to catch. I just picked it up, just like your cat at home. No biting or scratching; Kind of odd.


I was pulled back up, and we let the bunny go. And as this bunny hopped away into the woods, John said, 'Geez, I hope that wasn't someone's pet, and he put it down there for the day, to keep it safe??'


I hoped so too, because that bunny was gone. This railyard and turntable are now gone, too, according to John. Only the memory remains.


I hope the bunny was OK.

The Absolute Worst Two Christmas Presents I Ever Bleeping Got

Kid Frank
Contributor: Devon




People always start these things by saying 'Now that I'm older...'

Of course you're older. You're either older, or you're dead. Period.

Well, I am older. And I have come to realize that there's really no such thing as a 'bad' Christmas, birthday, or other-occasion gift. Any gift is something somebody wanted you to have. If it was a that bad a mismatch, get to know that person better, for later on. Work on that stuff.

Having said that, there are times when things just go horribly wrong.

Example 1: I was about 11, and my Dad decided to give my brother and I a thing called a 'Hermit Crab Lab' for Christmas. Basically, it's the same thing you see in every mall these days: Plastic tank with a vented top, some sand in the bottom, extra shells for the crabs to move in and out of, as is their nature.

We will never know why; maybe it was a little too much Absolut Christmas cheer, but, Dad and his girlfriend (at the time) made the decision to leave the Crab Lab in the trunk of the car overnight, on Christmas Eve. Unfortunately, the Crab Lab came with two actual live crabs, neither of whom were prepared or knowledgeaible enough to survive a New England winter evening in the trunk of a car.

So, Christmas morning, it's time to open presents, and, well, I should point out here that we have an older sister too. who wasn't included in the Crab Lab experience. Perhaps giving your teenage daughter crabs on Christmas morning is considered 'bad form', in some places?? I mean, this IS New Hampshire, but, come on, right??

Anyway, we're opening stuff, mostly AC/DC and Kiss cassette tapes and maybe some socks, and then it's time to open the Crab Lab. Long story short, the crabs simply didn't make it. We opened a box of cold hard reality, that morning, and never forgot it. Eventually a trip to the pet store got us some new recruits for the Lab, who lived for about 6 weeks. Basically, hermit crabs are giant bugs that live in a shell, and they're just not that interesting. I'd rather have a lava lamp, to be quite honest.



Example 2: My Mom, to the very last Christmas we still had her, always made sure we had a full stocking on Christmas morning. The strange thing was, as she got older, she seemed to get more and more of her stocking stuffers at CVS; We'd all get up bright and early on Christmas morning, and basically dump out a pile of lotion, shaving cream, deoderent, shampoo, and after shave, with a pouch of chocolate coins. We still can't figure out, to this day, what she was trying to tell us.

There was one year, though, that she really outdid herself, and decided it would be useful for us all to have our own thermometers. The only problem was, she grabbed them off the shelf, not realizing they were actually infant rectal thermometers. And on Christmas morning, as we all basically laughed our asses off, Mom collected these thermometers, and told us that this was the end of the subject. She didn't want to hear another word. Ever.

My stepfather, John, pointed out that it was already too late: This incident would be thrust into the 'annals' of our family Christmas history.

And so, as we all get older, try and remember that Christmas isn't about what you want, but what other people thought you should have. And be thankful nobody ever gave you a dead crab or a butt thermometer.


Merry Christmas and take care. I love you all, from the bottom of my pond!

Where are you?

Four Salem NH Churches unite for Christmas Eve service at Salem High


Four Salem NH churches have united together to hold a Christmas Eve service. The service will begin 6:00 PM and end around 7:00 PM.
Pastor Bryan Larson of Greater Salem Vineyard had this say " I am excited about 'Hope for the Holidays', the joint Christmas Eve service. God gave me the vision for this service only about eight weeks ago. It amazed me that four evangelical churches were willing to either lay aside their individual plans to provide the Greater Salem area with a celebration of Christmas for the whole community. Come join us as we celebrate Christ's birth."

Holy schnikes, Red Sox sign Carl Crawford

Four days after acquiring Adrian Gonzalez via trade the Boston Red Sox have pulled another coup in signing the best position player on the market. The deal came together late last night as the Angels had already offered Crawford 7yrs/$108mil and he had dined with Yankees GM Brian Cashman on Tuesday. Theo Epstein notorious in his penny pinching ways broke open his wallet and put it all out there offering Crawford 7yrs/$142mil and he took it.

Adrian Gonzalez trade done,thank God. (commentary)

What a roller coaster ride for Red Sox fans this weekend. From the surprise(you knew they had to do something) news Friday night into Saturday morning that they had traded three top prospects for sought after slugger Adrian Gonzalez.It felt like the clock was rewinding to the pre-2004 years when during the late NFL games we hear that the deal is off. Just like the old days we could be crushed almost daily by Sox news.But in the end we got him, technically just for one year. Word on the street is the Red Sox are waiting For opening day to announce a 7 year between $150-164 million deal, to avoid the luxury tax for this season.

NASA has discovered new life form on earth


NASA has made an announcement that they have discovered an organism like no other seen on earth.


" "The definition of life has just expanded," said Ed Weiler, NASA's associate administrator for the Science Mission Directorate at the agency's Headquarters in Washington. "As we pursue our efforts to seek signs of life in the solar system, we have to think more broadly, more diversely and consider life as we do not know it."

This finding of an alternative biochemistry makeup will alter biology textbooks and expand the scope of the search for life beyond Earth. The research is published in this week's edition of Science Express.

Carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus and sulfur are the six basic building blocks of all known forms of life on Earth. Phosphorus is part of the chemical backbone of DNA and RNA, the structures that carry genetic instructions for life, and is considered an essential element for all living cells.

Phosphorus is a central component of the energy-carrying molecule in all cells (adenosine triphosphate) and also the phospholipids that form all cell membranes. Arsenic, which is chemically similar to phosphorus, is poisonous for most life on Earth. Arsenic disrupts metabolic pathways because chemically it behaves similarly to phosphate.

"We know that some microbes can breathe arsenic, but what we've found is a microbe doing something new -- building parts of itself out of arsenic," said Felisa Wolfe-Simon, a NASA Astrobiology Research Fellow in residence at the U.S. Geological Survey in Menlo Park, Calif., and the research team's lead scientist. "If something here on Earth can do something so unexpected, what else can life do that we haven't seen yet?" "
