Northwest-Ohio

Ivy In Winter; View From My Mother’s Kitchen Window, Sandusky Ohio 2008

Limited edition 8x10 archival print up for auction today April 7 at Stivers School for the Arts in Dayton Ohio. Stivers is a public magnet school, grades 7-12. This auction benefits the photography program.

If I myself hadn’t gone to a high school with an advanced art & photography program, I might not have known that I was meant to pursue a career in photography. Kids need art programs! Consider contributing to a local arts program if you can.

Bigfoot

Bigfoot (also known as Sasquatch), is a cryptid humanoid ape-like creature that is said to inhabit the Pacific Northwest region of North America. 

After five years of research, scientists now claim Bigfoot does exist

Appearance & Etc 

  • 2-3 meters tall.
  • Around 43cm footprints.
  • Weighing about 220 kg.
  •  It is typically covered in dark brown or dark reddish hair.
  • Very strong, unpleasant odour.
  • Teeth similar to human teeth.
  • 15x stronger than humans.
  • Able to run at speeds of 35mph.
  • Large eyes.

Scientists argue whether Bigfoot’s diet is vegetarian, carnivore, or omnivore. 

History 

  • Early Native American tribes saw Bigfoot as a spiritual being, depicting it on totem poles, and had a name for the creature in their own language. They saw Bigfoot as a protector of the woods.

  • The British explorer David Thompson is sometimes credited with the first discovery in 1811 of a set of Sasquatch footprints.

  • Since then there have been many sightings of the creature in Western Canada, and in many states of the US, especially the Pacific Northwest, Ohio, and even as far south as Florida, where the swamp-dwelling beast is known as the Skunk Ape.
  • In 1965, Bigfoot was officially put on the endangered species list in Russia. Germany and France followed suit in 1967. 



Racist

I was just called a racist on a message board from my hometown area because I asked someone how many of the people he knew who made over $500k a year were an ethnicity other than white.  

Even hinting that there may be inequality between the races makes you a racist in NW Ohio.  

For the record, the data I found quickly (via Wikipedia, where it’s sourced) says that in 2004 non-Hispanic White households made a median of $140,000 a year, while others made a median of $24,000 a year.

But, they’ll retort that’s Wikipedia and not facts.

I don’t actually know how many of my followers live around me… But If you are from northwest Ohio please keep your doors locked. 2 men escaped from the correctional institution in Lima. T.J. Lane, convicted for a school shooting (I’m sure you’ve seen the picture with “Killer” written on his shirt at his court hearing) and Clifford Opperud convicted for robbery, burglary, and kidnapping. PLEASE stay safe. 

There is a ban on tap water in my city. THERE IS A FUCKING BAN ON THE MOTHERFUCKING TAP WATER THAT COMES INTO MY CITY. 

So apparently, there is a dangerous toxin in my tap water, which comes from Lake Erie, that makes it so we cant even drink it. PEOPLE ARE LINED UP OUTSIDE STORES TO GET THE BOTTLED WATER. The only thing we can do is flush the goddamn toilet. 

I would have a date today. It would be the one day I’m not allowed to take a shower.
