      WHAT AISLE IS THE POLISH SAUSAGE IN?

      https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-OJXz1_VZ0GU/WNlz2S3d8AI/AAAAAAAATZo/IO42Vj6-108MlQHJMOX5o2XKqNBZIrCIwCLcB/s1600/images1RK2CWP1.jpg

      Everyone seems to be in such a hurry to scream 'prejudice' these days................

      A customer asked, "In what aisle can I find the Polish sausage?"

      The clerk asks, "Are you Polish?"

      The guy, clearly offended, says, "Yes I am. But let me ask you something.

      If I had asked for Italian sausage, would you ask me if I was Italian?

      Or if I had asked for German Bratwurst, would you ask me if I was German?

      Or if I asked for a kosher hot dog would you ask me if I was Jewish?

      Or if I had asked for a Taco, would you ask if I was Mexican?

      Or if I asked for some Whiskey, would you ask if I was Irish?"

      The clerk says, "No, I probably wouldn't."

      The guy says, "Well then, because I asked for Polish sausage, why did you ask me if I'm Polish?"

      The clerk replied, "Because you're in Ace Hardware."

      The Loophole In The Hedonic Treadmill Facts So Romantic

          "Imagine a person who, after years of drinking bland, watery beer from a mass-market brewery, finally tastes a really good craft beer.

          At first she notices the intensity of the flavor. A few more sips and she comes to appreciate the beer’s complexity and the exquisite balance between bitterness and sweetness. The craft beer is so much more flavorful than what she has been used to drinking, and the experience is highly enjoyable.

          But check in after a few months when she has been drinking the craft beer on a regular basis. Something has changed. The experience is no longer as special as it was at first. It now takes an even greater taste sensation to yield the same thrill our beer drinker experienced the first few times she tried the craft beer.

          We adapt. A great pleasure, repeated often enough, becomes routine, and it takes an even greater treat to give us the same enjoyment.

          When we get used to having more, it takes more to please us. (Conversely, when we get used to having less, it takes less to please us.) This is the known as the “hedonic treadmill.”

          It’s analogous to the well-known tendency to adapt to physical stress. When you first start lifting weights, for example, a relatively light weight might be all it takes to start putting on muscle. But once the body adapts to that exercise, heavier and heavier weights will be needed to keep getting stronger.

          The idea of the hedonic treadmill can apply to discrete pleasures—like getting accustomed to better beer—or it can apply to an overall lifestyle.

          There is evidence that if an individual’s basic needs are met, after a certain point, increases in income do not lead to much greater happiness. As the money we have to spend goes up, so too do our expectations and desires—and with them the possibility of disappointment.

          A now-classic study from 1978 compared the happiness of lottery winners with a control group drawn from the same neighborhoods. The researchers interviewed lottery winners after the initial thrill had worn off.

          When asked to rate their present level of happiness, the lottery winners answered in the same way as did the control group.

          The two groups also made similar predictions about their future happiness.

          And when asked about a number of mundane pleasures—talking with a friend or eating breakfast—the lottery winners actually derived less pleasure than did the control group."

          One Minnesota Bear Hunting Party, Five Hounds, At A Reimbursement Cost Of $12,500.00

          'Let’s not forget the costs for wildlife; the bear cubs separated from their mothers, foraging black bears are kept on the move, and how about the White-tailed deer forced to protect her fawn from packs of free roaming hunting dogs in pursuit of bear.

          'During the 2016 Wisconsin bear hunting season 37 hunting dogs were lost in the pursuit of bear. A few Wisconsin legislators claim these deaths were due to the high wolf population of 866 in 2016, but there’s a whole lot more to this story than meets the eye. Adrian Wydeven, former Wisconsin DNR Head Wolf biologist, wrote in a opinion editorial, “Numbers don’t add up in wolf-hound debate” written on November 12, 2016 and suggested that:

          '“Do wolf numbers correlate with wolves killing hounds? The evidence suggests this might not necessarily be the case. In 2012, only seven dogs were killed and yet there were nearly as many wolves in 2012 as there were in 2016 (815 wolves in late winter 2012).” Source

          'What could be causing the high deaths of hunting hounds?

          'It’s a mystery as to just how many dogs in pursuit of bear are running through the woods during training & hunting. Why is this a mystery? Because a change in regulations took place that removed the Class B bear training & hunting licence. Because of that change it’s impossible to know; just how many dogs in pursuit of bear are running through the woods.' WODCW’s Blog

              What the hell is wrong with these people , shooting your dog just for the hell of it . What goes on in your head to do that or better said what isn't going on in that head of you that you can just do this . This pup was there for you , he was there to help you with your PTSD you should be chained up on a leach and see if you like to sit there and people laugh at you and taunt you .

              My heart goes out to this poor dog that didn't ask to be treated like that , he was just there for this person to comfort her and she thanked him by shooting him what a horrible person she is if that has to be a soldier wow I wouldn't want her defending our country I know that sounds harsh but that is how I feel , people who are cruel to animals are not very nice people.

              US veteran charged with killing PTSD 'therapy dog' as boyfriend filmed her

              International Business Times 2 hours 17 minutes ago

              A US Army veteran and her boyfriend have been charged with tying her 'therapy dog' to a tree and shooting it five times in the head while filming the horrific killing.

              Marinna Rollins, 23, and Jarren Heng, 25, were arrested in Fayetteville, North Carolina, and have both been charged with cruelty to animals and conspiracy, arrest documents said.


              Footage of the brutal killing emerged on Facebook showing the white pit bull tied to a tree in a wooded area.

              Rollins, dressed in camouflage trousers and a pink bra, stalks the dog, shooting the canine in the head whilst laughing and giggling at the dying animal, it is alleged.


              The adopted dog, named Camboui, but referred to as Cam or Cammy, was buried in a shallow grave, according to the arrest documents.

              Heng, who is still enlisted and stationed at Fort Bragg, can allegedly be heard encouraging the shooting in the clip.


              At one point Rollins allegedly says, "That's his nerves going" as the animal, her Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) therapy dog, begins to convulse.

              The pair, who were allegedly drinking at the time, are also said to have taken photos with the dog in their army uniforms before shooting it.

              "They can be heard on the tape laughing and giggling as the dog was being killed," Cumberland County District Attorney Clark Reaves said at the couple's first court appearance according to the Fayetteville Observer. "It was a therapy dog."

              Police say Rollins even sent text messages confessing to shooting her dog.

              Rollins dog

              According to the newspaper, she wrote on Facebook on 17 April that Cam would be heading to his new owner soon.

              "Sad he has to go, but he will be much happier where he is heading off to," Rollins reportedly said.

              "He's going to have such a great new life," Heng replied, adding a smiley-face emoji.

              In the video, a female voice can be heard saying to the dog: "It's been real ... I love you, you're my puppy, you're a good puppy".

              The dog was reportedly adopted by Rollins' and her former husband in January last year, with Cam certified as an emotional support animal for the veteran's PTSD.

              Rollins retired from the army on medical grounds in January this year, it has been reported.

              Texas high-school student peed in teacher's cup before she drank from it, police say

              23 hrs ago
              A Central Texas high-school student was arrested this week after authorities say he urinated in a teacher's cup earlier in the month.

              The 16-year-old at Moody High School, about 25 miles southwest of Waco, was charged assault on a public servant, harassment of a public servant and obstruction or retaliation, Moody police Chief Roger Kennedy told the Waco Tribune-Herald.

              Police were notified of the April 13 incident by Moody ISD administrators.


              "The juvenile was accused of urinating in a drinking cup that belonged to one of the teachers and she didn't find out about it until after the fact," Kennedy said. "She thinks she [ingested] it but she doesn't know 100 percent, because according to her statement she made the comment that the water fountain always tastes funny."

              Two students alerted the teacher to what had happened and she immediately poured out the cup, Kenendy said.

              The district's superintendent, Gary Martel, said the student was disciplined by the school after Moody High principal Andrew Miller reviewed surveillance footage and spoke to students about the incident.

              "Unfortunately, students will make poor decisions at times," Martel said. "The district cannot keep all poor decisions from happening on our campuses but we will follow district policy so there are consequences and punitive results for those who choose to make bad decisions at school."

              The student, who was not identified because of his age, was taken to the McLennan County juvenile detention center. The charges against him are all third-degree felonies
