It’s an old tradition that during a leap year women could propose to men. This was usually depicted as old or ugly women trapping men, but some art focused more on the role reversal and could be quite cute.
I have a soft spot in my heart for the last one because it plays on the idea of “undesirable” people, a tall masculine woman and a shy effeminate man, finding each other but instead of mocking them depicts it as sweet that she could finally ask him because he was too shy and insecure to ask her.
I know many people are skeptical of using radios for communication, I used to feel that way also. But after many years of using & testing this method, I know that we are receiving voices other than those coming from radio stations. This is just a quick example to show actual communication & how to prove it. I’m using the Psb7 radio, because it’s perfect for this kind of experiment. This radio has specific scan rates, 100 milliseconds, 200, 250 etc. which you can choose. For this I used 100 milliseconds, the fastest setting on fm. 100 milliseconds means that the radio is scanning each station at 1/10th of a second. The voice you hear is speaking across four radio stations. Pay attention to the radio numbers, it starts at 105.1 & goes to 105.4, the voice occurs in that space. (I’ll get a better view next time of the radio numbers). This voice isn’t coming from just one station, it’s a phrase & it’s intelligible. You can also look at the audio file from a Psb7, & see the stations evenly spaced, these voices will span several to many of those stations.
Buddhist texts do not exaggerate when they say that our greatest enemy is clinging to a self. Why? We are caught in a situation where mind is incapable of directly experiencing its own essential emptiness, and instead posits a self that must be sustained. We thus develop all the needs and wants that must be gratified in order to maintain such a self. Suffering comes from the endless search to satisfy what cannot be satisfied. “I” leads to “I am” which leads to “I want” and so on.

Lena Baker was willing to take any job possible to support her three children. In the 1940s, she was hired by a white grist mill owner called Ernest Knight, who needed a maid and carer to look after him while he was recovering from a broken hip.
Knight was abusive towards Baker and often held her against her will. On 30 April, 1944, Knight locked Baker up inside the grist mill and tried to force her to have sex with him. He then produced a metal pipe and began to beat Baker. She managed to grab Knight’s gun and defend herself, shooting Knight dead in the process. She escaped and immediately alerted the authorities of what had happened. Regardless of this, during a time of racial segregation and suppression of African American rights in Georgia, she was found guilty by an all white, all male jury, and sentenced to death.
On 23 February, 1945, she entered the execution chamber. Her final words were: “What I done, I did in self-defense, or I would have been killed myself. Where I was I could not overcome it. God has forgiven me. I have nothing against anyone. I picked cotton for Mr. Pritchett, and he has been good to me. I am ready to go. I am one in the number. I am ready to meet my God. I have a very strong conscience.”
In 2005 it was determined that her execution was unjust and she was granted a posthumous pardon, 60 years after she was executed.

Description: The Connecticut Sentinel republished a story from January 1829 of a Sasquatch like creature. Two hunters found 19×19 inch tracks in the Okefenokee Swamp in Georgia. For two weeks a hunting party tried looking for the beast, only to be attacked by it. The TV show MonsterQuest dubbed the creature “Man Mountain”.
