If you have spent any time at a beach around gulls this is so so true. Oh there goes the sandwich or bag of chips off the picnic blanket. 

Image may contain: one or more people, text that says 'NICE SACKET, THANK You BE A SHAME IF SOME THING WERE TO HAPPEN TO IT, LEAVE THE CHIPS. W.MPhoil'

Gene Weingarten, writing in the Washington Post about online news stories and the accompanying readers' comments: "I basically like 'comments,' though they can seem a little jarring: spit-flecked rants that are appended to a product that at least tries for a measure of objectivity and dignity. It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."

Extreme heat wave is predicted for the next few days in many areas. Many people will suffer. I apologize for finding this funny:

 

"With current temperatures hovering above 120 degrees, rangers in Death Valley National Park have some advice for would-be visitors: Drink plenty of water, avoid excessive outdoor activity and, please, stop trying to fry eggs on the pavement. It doesn’t work, it makes a mess and the staff has better things to do than clean up after you.

In fact, the proliferation of broken shells, discarded cartons and accumulated goo has reached such a point that the park recently took to its Facebook page to implore people to stop ---------------------."
