Here is something that gives a major cinematic feel. Bruce Carr left base during WW II flying a P-51 Mustang and returned the next day flying a FW-190-6. https://army.togetherweserved.com/ar...rson&ID=289769

Thanks to Corona, sport events are verboten.

Which means no sport events for TV.

To compensate this, ESPN ran a spelling bee marathon.


Seriously? Still nothing better to do?

Back in the 90s ESPN carried Magic: The Gathering tournaments, who knows they might be on YouTube.

But what if you're tired of watching adults' dreams destroyed by simple mistakes, and yearn to see it happen to kids?

7 hour marathon though? Wow.
What's next, watching people play video games? ;)

America's rats are getting desperate

Since restaurants have closed, the rats are no longer getting fed with leftovers. And starving rats get desperate, and fights have broken out over territory and food.

Now there's new ESPN content - Cannibal Rat Fights! Two rats enter, one rat leaves - literally, because he ate the other one! Grand tournament prize - one large Domino's pizza!

They tend to favor Lombardi's. From my brother previously raising fancy rats, however, I'd say their favored prize may well be Godiva chocolate (the rats would go crazy if they smelled it). Also from my brother previously raising fancy rats, you can bet I wouldn't tune in.

Maybe ESPN should look to Thailand.

The monkeys there have already switched to mass combat.

Yep, our relatives show us our future.

Glowing red eyes? Check.
Teeth that can pierce the skin? Check.

And they say this moth only eats fruit...
