World's Worst Hunter vs. Stupid Deer

Recently while driving back from a fun Thanksgiving visit, we saw 7 deer who had met their demise by being struck on the highway.

Seeing those dead deer reminded me that this is also Deer Hunting season.

So even more are likely meeting their demise.

However, there is one deer that is verrrrrrry lucky.

It was on a road and even survived the Deer Hunting efforts of a hunter.

As the title of today's DIT indicates, this deer was either very lucky or the hunter was a really bad shot.

This 27 second video is amazing.  HERE'S THE LINK

Can your truck do this?

Some DIT'ers have trucks.  

Others have 4 wheelers.

Some have cars or bicycles or perhaps even, believe it or not, walk.

But, whatever your favorite mode of transportation, you will be amazed at what this truck can do.

What is it, you ask?

Well, this 21 second video is amazing.  Check it out.  But, imho, it is definitely one of those "don't try this at home" things.

Antipodes !

What's that?

Well, "Antipodes are points diametrically opposite each other on the Earth’s surface."

When you were a kid, you were often told that if you dug a deep deep hole in your backyard you would end up in China.

That location, if true, would be an Antipode.

Though, as you might imagine, not every deep hole would end up in China. Most of them would probably end up in either the Atlantic or Pacific Oceans.

But where might you end up?

There is an interactive map out there on the internet that will show you where.

Want to see it before you start digging?    : )

And if you want to know more about Antipodes, HERE'S A LINK

What is RSNA?

RSNA is 'short' for Radiological Society of North America.

It is the premier meeting for Radiologists not only in North America but around the entire globe.

It meets annually for a week at this time of the year, usually in Chicago.

Why are we mentioning this now? you ask.

Well, in addition to this being the most important and cutting edge assembly for Radiologists, Radiological Physicists, and other related Health Professionals, 

RSNA also has recently developed a website that will likely be of interest to you,  your family, or your friends.


Yes. RSNA has a website with information for patients about studies they might be getting.

So, if you have had or been told to have such studies as MRI, CT, PET scans, etc. etc. etc. and are wondering what this entails, this website will provide much needed information.

Can we Trust the Bible? Is it really True?

 As you are surely well aware, many folks say that the Bible can not be trusted?

How do you reply to such a charge?

Can the Bible be trusted?

Is it really true?

And what difference does it make?  

Hint: your World View is based on your answer to these questions.

This was recently discussed by Pat Franklin in a very insightful article on the net. HERE'S THE LINK

Happy Thanksgiving

In America, today is Thanksgiving Day.

This is the day that folks travel to grandmother’s house or some similar place to gather with family and friends and observe one of the most favorite and special times of the year, Thanksgiving.

Some will have large gatherings and bountiful meals, others smaller groups and not so much.

But all who truly understand this special Holiday will give thanks on this day to God for our many blessings.

History books when I was a child (long long ago when Dinosaurs roamed the earth) told the correct history of Thanksgiving.

But, alas, since those days there have been many revisions and deletions concerning its origin and true meaning. 

So what is the true history of Thanksgiving day? you ask.

Well, the article to which we will link today will give you a factual, 
non-revised, history.

You reallllly need to read this and you might even want to read or summarize it at your Thanksgiving gathering. HERE’S THE LINK.

Who Knew?

A friend of DIT found this in an email and forwarded it to us (and probably a zillion other folks) so you may have already seen this.

But, if not..... there are quite a few home remedy suggestions in this email.

I have NO idea if these things work but likely many of them do.

So with that by way of introduction and caveat -- check out these "Who Knew" ideas.

Best Pumpkin Pie Ever - Classic Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie

Folks who know the poster of these DITs are well aware that this one today is a Hoot and they are wondering how this happened.


Because this poster person is NOT know for being a cook (though IS known for being a big happy enthusiastic eater of other folks creations.)

But, Thanksgiving time is almost here and likely many DIT readers are cooks and are always on the lookout for wonderful new ways to make yummy foods.

I haven't tried this recipe, of course, being a non-cook.  But it sounds interesting.

This 5 minute 18 second video (which alas follows a brief cat food commercial) will make your mouth water.   HERE'S THE LINK

The Gettysburg Address

On this day, November 19, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln delivered the now famous Gettysburg Address.

That was almost 150 years ago, well technically 149 years ago.

It is still an awesome speech and worth remembering:

"Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. 

We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract.

The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. 

It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."

What Happens when you Die?

Have you wondered about this?

I am sure you have.

Everyone does.

And there are a zillion "answers" to this question floating around.

Recently an article was posted on the internet that was discovered by a friend of DIT who printed it out for his Sunday School Bible Study Class.

Fortunately he gave us a copy of the article.

We thought it was sooooooo enlightening that you would want to read it, too.

Sleeping Dogs and Doggie Dreams

Those of you with dogs have probably noticed that your dog has dreams.

I don't know if Cats do this.

But Dogs certainly do.

A friend of DIT found this cute 3 Minute 46 Seconds Video of Dreaming Dogs.

We thought you would enjoy it -- especially if you have time on your hands today since you are not too interested in the Football games today because your favorite team has gone to the dogs.

Just Kidding.

How much is a billion?

With all this talk about a coming fiscal cliff in which Politicians and Pundits are talking in the terms of Trillions, a Billion may seem like small stuff.

But, how much is a Billion really?

And since Old Earthers (Evolutionists) throw around billions of years as they discuss the age of the earth, perhaps we should look again at how much a Billion of anything (money, years, whatever) really is.

This very informative short 1 minute 43 second video will amaze you with its insights.  HERE"S THE LINK

World's smallest Frog

Recently a DIT reader told us about this 'find'

So we went surfing and found a picture and a link.

Of what?

Well, it seems that the smallest frog in Northern Hemisphere has been found and  is the same tiny size as the smallest frog in the Southern Hemisphere.

This means it is reallllllly small and surely is an award winning frog.     : )

How small is it?

Well, a brief (appropriately) article will tell you about it and show you its picture.  HERE'S THE LINK

Today let's think about our veterans again.

Who is the Unknown Soldier in that tomb?

Well, actually, there are more than one.

The first was an unknown Soldier from the First World War.

But others have been placed there from other wars since that time.
