Preheat the oven to 425F. Wash and then dry potatoes, then prick them with a fork to make steam holes. Rub with vegetable oil and salt. Wrap the potatoes in foil and put them in the oven for 1 hour.
And if you’re wondering, this guy covered his house with industrial aluminum foil and it survived the Caldor Fire in 2021. It’ll set you back $788, but a few rolls of this may be a pretty cheap price to not have your house burn down.
Yesterday I posted about a bear wandering around Arlington. Today's wildlife story is about a turkey. I was running on some trails and turned a corner and almost stepped on a turkey that was right on the edge of the trail. I jumped back and froze. The turkey didn't like that and flew up at my face. I took some more steps back and it flew at me again. I take a couple more steps back and fall backwards into the brush on the other side of the trail. Fortunately the turkey realized it had won a TKO so left me alone and walked back into the brush near where I had almost stepped on it. I can now list getting my ass kicked by a turkey as one of my life accomplishments.
Video cameras at an Iranian uranium enrichment plant have shut off. Based on what I've seen, a group of 12 hotshot pilots only have a few weeks to be trained to fly at impossible speeds down a twisty canyon because ballistic missiles don't exist in this world.
