LOTD for July 12

Filed under: Uncategorized — gokamoto @ 11:30 pm

Sorry that I don’t have anything more than this, but we’ve spent all day/night with our really fun houseguests…my whole family will be sad when they leave tomorrow.

The Navy is turning the Fuji Film blimp into a super spy blimp that will catch drug smugglers, immigrant smugglers, etc. It sure it a LOT more efficient (10 gallons of fuel per hour vs. the current 600-700 gallons of fuel for patrol aircraft) to use that type of vehicle and it can stay in the air a lot longer than an aircraft or helicopter:

This maintenance man found out that he was the biggest single winner in New York’s 30-year Lotto history…and then TOSSED THE TICKET INTO THE TRASH on his way to claim his prize! He had to wait a year to get his money, because if anyone found that ticket an turned it in within that year then they would have been the legal winners of the $65 mil prize! I cannot imagine how he felt during the past year!
