52 in 2021 Challenge - #4 - Dusty

This is my photo for the 52 in 2021 Challenge – #4 – Dusty. I was wandering around the house to find something dusty and didn’t have to look too far – this is the top of my computer desk. I didn’t realise how dusty it is – time to get the duster out.

Anonymous is a loosely associated hacktivist group. It originated in 2003 on the imageboard 4chan, representing the concept of many online and offline community users simultaneously existing as an anarchic, digitized global brain. It is also generally considered to be a blanket term for members of certain Internet subcultures, a way to refer to the actions of people in an environment where their actual identities are not known. It strongly opposes Internet censorship and surveillance, and has hacked various government websites. It has also targeted major security corporations. It also opposes Scientology, government corruption and homophobia. Its members can be distinguished in public by the wearing of stylized Guy Fawkes masks.

SX10-IMG_3355

Taken APR 2, 2001; posted JUL 9, 2011
Since Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, played polo this afternoon (July 9, 2011) at the Santa Barbara Polo Club in Carpinteria, California I thought this would be an appropriate time to post this photo of souvenirs of our one and only polo game (in the mid 1980s) when we still lived there. The prince’s beautiful bride, Duchess of Cambridge, presented the Tiffany trophy to the winning team, Team Royal Salute. Each player made a $100,000 contribution to the American Friends of the Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry for the privilege of participating in this afternoon’s game. Tickets for the event went for $400 to $4,000 including lunch prepared by Giada de Laurentiis.
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Santa Barbara Polo Club.
About the foundation:
www.foundationpolochallenge.com/foundation.html
Why does this mean so much to us? My long-suffering wife was born in Santa Barbara and we lived there for twenty years before moving to Texas.

I had dusted off my cap but I didn’t realize how grubby it had become until I saw the picture on my computer screen. I have worn it quite a bit in Texas heat.

Grizzly Bear Chair – Wallpaper

Grizzly Bear Chair - Wallpaper

What has 4 legs, 2 arms, 1 head, 8 inch serrated teeth and is covered in soft fur?

from my website: www.abcdeology.com/?p=108

The Grizzly Bear Chair!

The Grizzly Bear Chair was given to President Andrew Johnson by California frontiersman Seth Kinman shortly after Lincoln’s death.

Although the chair was “soft and exceedingly comfortable”, “the great feature of the chair was that, by touching a cord, the head of the monster grizzly bear with jaws extended, would dart out in front from under the seat, snapping and gnashing its teeth as natural as life”.

Yes, a giant bear head would come out from under the chair and bite your legs off.

Lincoln still got a Kinman chair before his death. Guess what it was made of? Cute stuffed teddy bears? Milk crates? No. Stabbing, sharpened elk horns.

Kinman presented the chair to Lincoln along with a fiddle “made from the skull and a rib of his favorite mule“. I wonder what happened to mules he didn’t like?

“He played ‘John Brown’ on the bones of the mule. Lincoln said that if he could play the fiddle he would ask him for it, but since he could not, the fiddle would be better off in Mr. Kinman’s hands.” – Stanley Kimmel, a pants pissingly scared bystander.

Kinman was a bit eccentric. Migrating to California in 1849 because of the Gold Rush (who could tell he was a crazy prospector with a clean cut face like that?) he hunted the Grizzly bears in Humbolt county to extinction in the 1860s (large groups of 40 bears roaming together were not unusual prior to that). He claimed a kill count of over 800 Grizzly Bears and over 50 elk a month. Alongside hunting bears, he hunted men. An extremist racist bastard, he would shoot any Indian he met. The author of The Ethics of Grizzly Hunting called him “a mixture of brutality, cunning, and good humor”. The New York Times called him “THE PACIFIC COAST NIMROD WHO GIVES CHAIRS TO PRESIDENTS“.

Today, his great grandsons work for a web hosting company. Truly the American dream. I hope all their servers run off steam power from a furnace that burns bears.

Kinman’s descendants still pray that the undead chair their great grandfather built doesn’t come shambling through the woods some moonless night to drag them to hell…in its exceedingly comfortable seat.

The cards in the picture were sold by Kinsman while he visited Washington.
