Lake Michigan Aircraft Carriers

History that, probably, most people never knew!
What follows is a great piece of American History!
Lake Michigan Aircraft Carriers....
The Great Lakes provided vital support for the war effort in WWII, from
building 28 fleet subs in Manitowoc to providing the bulk of US industrial
output, we could not have won the war if not for the benefits of the Great
Lakes and their related industry.
However there was another benefit of the lakes that is often overlooked.
Japan quickly lost the war because, among many other things, its navy could
not replace its carrier pilot losses. We could. But how did we train so
many pilots in both comfort (calm seas) and safety (no enemy subs)? We took
two old side-wheel Great Lakes passenger steamers and turned them into
training carriers on Lake Michigan! Virtually every carrier pilot trained
in the war got his landing training on these amazing ships! Sadly nothing,
but these great photos and the wrecks of the aircraft that ditched
alongside them,
remain to tell their fascinating story!
Check this out! USS Sable and USS Wolverine ...

Saint Peter is sitting at the Pearly Gates when two blokes wearing dark
hoodies and sagging pants (with exposed undies) arrive.
Surprised, St Peter looks out through the Gates and says, "Wait here. I'll
be right back."
St Peter goes over to God's chambers and tells him who is awaiting
entrance. God, irritated, says to Peter: "How many times do I have to tell
you? You can't be judgmental here. This is heaven. All are loved. All are
brothers. Go back and let them in!"
So St Peter goes back, looks around and lets out a heavy sigh. He returns
to God's chambers and says, "Well, they're gone."
"The blokes wearing hoodies?" asks God.
"No. The Pearly Gates."

99 Cans of Anytime Ale Pack
Because everything is bigger in Texas, an Austin brewery has made a 99 pack
of beers, for $99. Ninety-nine beers, in one case. God bless America. In
each massive case, you'll need two, possibly three people to carry the
whole thing, you will find 99 cans of Austin Beerworks' Anytime Ale. But
getting one of these two by four-sized packs is a little bit more
complicated. You have to follow Austin Beerworks on Facebook, Twitter, and
Instagram, for all the nitty gritty details, on how to buy this excessive
beer. Austin Beerworks says details on purchasing will be going out later
this week, with shipments starting on Thursday. Even if you have no
intention on buying a 99 pack, you have to be in awe of this feat of
engineering. You could do the limbo under one of these things.

What Kids in Some Countries Do to Get to School.
We live in a world of incredible disparity. While some of us in the world
enjoy the luxuries of life, our children grow unafraid and unchallenged,
others must fight for every little benefit. So the next time your kids
complain about going to school, show them what other children in other
parts of the world do just for the chance to get an education. This is
their daily path to get to school.
