    My dad’s The Man™ on the county’s drug squad, and he told me a hilarious dumb crook story last week about a guy who basically chased him down to sell him some Lortab.

    He even asked him “You’re not [Andy's dad's last name] are you?” during the transaction.

    After he was busted, he complained that my dad lied to him. Bwahahahahaha. Idiot.

  6. a hilarious dumb crook story last week about a guy who basically chased him down to sell him some Lortab.

    Hah. Everyone knows you sell that stuff with spam on the intertubes.

  7. I’m ok with residency requirements for certain jobs. Certainly no one would dispute that council folks and the major should live IN their district. Policemen, imho, have a similar self-interest.

    It is an admirably inspired policy, but the actual real-world effect of this policy in the city of Hartford is that within a few years, the PD ends up recruiting from the mugbooks.

  8. After that latest O’Keefe sting on NPR’s main fundraiser, if the GOP can’t eliminate their budget I’ll chase the House down myself and stuff an overdose of Lortab down their throats.

  9. Aww, shoot! I think I got rid of somebody’s addition to the post when I added my picture….

    Whoever you are, sorry! I didn’t mean to do it!

  10. …a Hartford police detective told me this while I was actually living in Hartford. He told me that they had lowered the reqs. so much in order to accommodate the residency rule, that they were graduating guys who he remembers arresting.

  11. Hey, isn’t Hartford suffering from some really nasty crime or am I mistaken?

  12. Fixt.
    It was still there – just cleverly hiding in plain sight…..

  13. Sure, it doesn’t work if you combine it with bad policy that results in people not wanting to live there.

    But, if Detroit could improve it’s schools (hire Michelle Rhee!), secure the safety of the streets, and lower the city income tax … it might be crazy enough to work.

    Many of the problems of Detroit aren’t going to go away … and they are spreading. Poor, illiterate folks are gettting sick of living in the city, and moving to Grosse Pointe, for example. They don’t suddenly become better people once there. They just bring their problems with them.

    My stepmother told me that GP North’s football team is almost entirely black, and that the white kids are afraid to join.

    There are some confusing dynamics as to why this has happened – some low-cost apartments that are in the District, although not in GP. Families have moved there – and you’ll find a few baby mommas living together in one joint with 15 kids.

    North includes the most exclusive parts of Grosse Pointe.

  14. It should apply to the pols that represent their districts but in general it’s wrong.

  15. So Barry is going back to using Gitmo.

    Just saw this quote from May 2009, drooling out of President NotMyJob’s mouth:

    “The problem of what to do with Guantanamo detainees was not caused by my decision to close the facility. The problem exists because of the decision to open Guantanamo in the first place.”

    If this guy could be any more shiftless and hypocritical, I don’t know how. But he will, doubtless, find a way.

  16. I don’t know about Detroit, but in many cities, between the housing bubble bursting and the “poor” having a “right” to “decent” housing, many people on the welfare dole are now living in nicer apartments than those of people who have full-time jobs.

    A lot of these apartment owners realized that they couldn’t find paying renters to afford their rates when the bottom dropped out of the market, so to pay the bills, they figured out they could get some of that sweet government money for themselves by entering into an agreement with the Federal Government for Section 8 housing.

    It’s disgusting, really – especially when you consider that many of those places are going to end up looking like those places in Chicago that Valerie Jarrett and her cronies were “in charge of”…..

  17. If this guy could be any more shiftless and hypocritical, I don’t know how. But he will, doubtless, find a way.

    Somebody commented over at HotAir that if the response to Barry’s “Win a visit from me at your HS Graduation” is any indication, the fiction that the Dems are frantically trying to float right now about Bambi being unbeatable is a real joke.

    He ain’t gonna be able to muster up the kind of support that he had back in 2008 when he was an unknown commodity. Even his staunchest supporters are starting to realize that the emperor has no clothes – gas prices and food prices going up have a way of smacking folks with reality…..

  18. He ain’t gonna be able to muster up the kind of support that he had back in 2008 when he was an unknown commodity.

    Let’s hope so, but I remain pessimistic. The MBM will make 2008’s campaign look like a Shaker church service when they roll out the cheerleading in 2012.

  19. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhaha!!!!!!!!!!

    A top union and a top liberal blog announced Tuesday that they’ll team up to sponsor polling through the 2012 elections.

    Daily Kos and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) said they will join forces to conduct issue and campaign polling in key states and races over the next two years.

    The joint poll continues an effort by Daily Kos, a premiere liberal blog founded in 2002 by Markos Moulitsas, a contributor to The Hill, to take its advocacy a step further, and provide raw political information to readers, especially on races and issues of importance to that online community.

    “Rather than sit around and have know-nothing pundits and politicians in DC tell us what the American people think, we prefer to ask them directly,” Moulitsas said in a statement. “And this partnership will allow us to conduct significantly more polling than any other media organization in the country.”

    Hahahaahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahha!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Oh, my aching sides…..

  20. I’m not going to blame the owners of the apartments for accepting sec 8. Because it IS the responsibility of the person with the housing voucher. EOL.

    Recently, changes to section 8 have resulted in better tenants. They can lose their voucher if they don’t keep it up to certain standards.

    When you rent to someone w/o that threat … in Detroit … you don’t know what you’re getting.

    At issue, ultimately, is folks who decide that “acting white” is taking care of your house. Being responsible.

  21. It should apply to the pols that represent their districts but in general it’s wrong.

    Why is it wrong?

    If you have a job that is paid for by the taxpayer, I believe the taxpayer has the right to impose whatever it wants.

    I mean, no one HAS to work for City X with such requirements.

  22. When you rent to someone w/o that threat … in Detroit … you don’t know what you’re getting.

    I think that’s probably a universal truth.

    That’s good that they changed Sec. 8 that way – I guess too many owners got fed up with having to put up with the tenants who felt they were “owed”.

  23. I had a nice neighbor in Detroit who worked for the DIA (art museum) . At the time there was a residency requirement. She was a nice neighbor, we used to garden together, etc.

    When they changed the rule, she moved two miles away into Grosse Pointe.

    I’m glad my tax dollars go to support her to live somewhere else.

  24. I trimmed my nails for this?

  25. Oh right. I forgot it’s a weather blog.

    It’s supposed to get up into the 80’s here today.
    It’s not supposed to get that hot this time of year.
    When it gets that hot, bad things happen…..

  26. I trimmed my nails for this?

    I hope you didn’t put on lipstick too.

  27. Highs in the upper 70s. Little hazy. Nice day for shorts.

  28. Nice for shorts here, too.

    If by shorts, you mean short stays outside if you are wearing shorts. It’s all the way up to 39!

  29. So we’re a Detroit Chamber of Commerce blog now?

    *shorts 10,000 shares of H2*

  30. I watched that new Chrysler commercial that disses on NYC and Chitown and promotes Detroit. Even with all the flash and dash that Chrysler can by, I don’t want any part of it. I think I can safely say that I’ll be looking at the grass from the other side one of these days without having ever set foot in the motor city.

    Apologies to Ted Nugent.

  31. I dare you to read this without getting dust in your eyes.

  32. Andy, you mentioned your dad being in law enforcement. I had the opportunity to hang out with a fed on the task for for a High Intensity Drug Area TF.

    I was astonished by some of the neat gear they had.
    And the utter stupidity of most of their targets.

  33. Isn’t Ted in Texas now? I don’t think you need to apologize to him.

  35. Obvious Observation of the Day: Taylor Swift is about as sexy as a 2X4 in an Armani dress.

  36. Bad egg?

  37. Really? I mean, she doesn’t have a lot of curves, but she’s cute as a button.

  38. Taylor Swift might be many things.

    Sexy and talented are two that she’s not.

  39. . . . but she’s cute as a button.

    xBrad – We all know of your preference for the transgendered, but boys?!?!?

    Have you no shame?

  40. I’ve never watched Willie Wonka.

  41. New Left Logic:

    You know, if you take James O’Keefe’s last name, and replace it with Hitler, he’s kind of like Hitler.

    You know who else was like Hitler? Hitler.

    Point proven. James O’Keefe is Hitler.

  42. I’ve never watched Willie Wonka.

    – – – –

    I called Willie, he said he’d never heard of you either.

  43. I’m sorry, but if you don’t think Taylor is at least moderately attractive, you’ve got issues.

    http://tinyurl.com/mk6psm

    As for her talent, meh.

  44. I agree with Master Chief. Brad, you have a thing for pre-pubescent boys.

  45. James, that was a great article on that boy……PASS THE FLIPPING KLEENEX!

  46. Yeah, HS, that’s why I posted this for Load HEAT:

  49. Awesome story, Jay-N-Ames. Thanks for sharing.

  50. I actually like my wimmens a little curvier, but young rich thin blondes do have a certain attraction.

  51. Eddie, they said at weaselzippers “Given it’s Portland, Oregon, I imagine it’s one of those antiwar peace-loving criminals.”

    How is that possible, since he taking a shower?

  52. I’ve always felt that it is fairly important our wimmens still be breathing.

  53. I notice you didn’t say necessary, clintbird.

    Well played! Way to cover all the bases.

  54. Ima a planner from way back, James.

  55. Geoff – Women have hips. Teenage boys and drag queens (Swift) don’t.

  56. Well, okay, Geoff, I guess it’s not Totally important then … just nice to have.

  57. If you have a job that is paid for by the taxpayer, I believe the taxpayer has the right to impose whatever it wants.

    In my dad’s case, the taxpayer didn’t have a say. The department, in conjunction with the city, told them they had to for political reasons.

    Just like a judge decided to desegregate schools for political reasons, to the detriment of the kids and the city schools.

    Both ended 20 years later way after the damage was noticeably done. (voluntary bussing, via taxi cabs in some cases, at taxpayer expense, still exists. Along with the extra violence.)

  58. I like men with a sense of humor.

    *they are gonna need it*

  59. Teenage boys and drag queens (Swift) don’t.

    HEY!!!!

    BWAAAAHAHAHAHAHAAA!!!

    love this comment.

    “So You feel it’s ok to live in a Totalitarian society , where your vote means nothing.”

    That’s got to be the most idiotic statement written or spoken so far this year. All public unions want is a totalitarian state, with them as the beneficiaries! They don’t want to have to compete in the arena of freedom. They want to be able to give you their demands and you have no choice but to accept them.

    And his(the original commenter) vote means nothing? HAHAHAHA!!! I’m sure the guy supporting the governor there actually voted for the governor and wants him to do exactly what he is doing. Sounds like his vote meant quite a bit, in fact.

  68. My hips are neutral.

  96. Interesting. One bill has already passed in Ohio, this one is getting ready to go to the Governor’s desk in Idaho (where it will be signed), and the only places the Unions are making a stink are…..what, exactly?

    Seems to me if this is such a big deal to the Unions, they’d have marshalled their troops to EVERY location this was happening. Gee, maybe it’s not about the kids after all!…..

    How old is he?

  100. Vet guesses 15-16 months old now.

  101. Chief, if you think the union can raise a stink when we try to take away their collective bargaining, you wait and see what happens if they fuck with SS for people over 50.

  102. No, it is not too late, Cyn. He may raise a stink and it may take a bit longer, but like any learned behavior, it can be taught.

  103. but like any learned behavior, it can be taught.

  104. TiFW – Florida is about to change teacher’s performance evaluations, tenure and pensions. The NEA had them out in the streets here in JAX and in Tallahassee.

  105. Thanks CB. I see out on the web that it’s possible, but was hoping one of youse might have some experience with with as well.

  106. Hotspur – Not even Ryan’s plan does that. This “They are gonna cut your SS benefits!!” is crap. Means testing won’t cause that much of a ruckus, I suspect.

  107. *tosses doggie biscuit into wiser’s crate in the kitchen*

    Good Boy!

  108. Truck is all packed. . . except for the ‘puter, of course.

  109. We crate train all our dogs, Cyn. Seems to work fairly well.

  110. How old were the dogs CB?

  111. Where you going MCPO? Back home already?

  112. Man, that seemed like a pretty short vacation.

  113. Pups, Cyn.

  115. Cyn – Want to get back before I need a 2nd mortgage to pay for the gas.

  116. Planned Parenthood proudly proclaims that they have provided birth control services to 2.5 million clients since they were founded in 1934. What they don’t want you to know is that they have performed 5 million abortions since 1973.

    So much for abortion being rare…..

    http://www.jillstanek.com/2011/03/planned-parenthood-reaches-gruesome-milestone-5-million-abortions/

  117. Teresa, wouldn’t the birth control figure then be 7.5 million?

  118. I’ve had my dog since 01/20/11. Is it too late to crate-train him?

    Hi Cyn. I don’t think it’s too late. Learned recently that when I tried to crate our “Buddy” some years back.

    When you get the crate. Keep the door open but encourage your pooch to ‘go there’ with treats and positive messages… etc. Takes longer, but it sticks. I know folks whose doggies LIKE to be in their crates even when the door is open… feeling safer and enclosed.

    Good luck and let us know how it’s going, please.

  119. Dunno, HS – the 2.5 million is the number they (PP) have plastered larger than life on the side of a Pepto-Bismol-pink bus.

    The 5 million is the number that was compiled by another group, using data that PP provides every year (per the article).

    I think they’re trying to justify the federal funding they get every year, so they are very careful to keep those numbers separate…..

  120. Cyn, DD#1 has crate-trained our granddog – a “Pound Puppy” that she got when the pup was 8 months old. So far, it’s working great – she took right to it.

  121. Abortion is birth control.

    5 million is a lot of rape and incest to deal with. They shold be proud of their accomplishment.

  122. It’s never too late to teach a dog anything.

  123. Is it too late to crate train wiserbud?

  124. Woof!Woof!muthafuckerWoof!Woof!

  125. What’s the problem Cyn? Why crate now?

    Terrible 2’s?

    The key is to give no warning. The cat really hates that.

  136. Wiser, belated congrats from me as well about the job.

    Maybe now you will pay back the $50 you owe me, huh?

  137. Is it too late to crate train wiserbud?

    Is he more like a rabbit or a dog? Rabbits leave neat small round pellets. If wiserbud is more like a dog, or worse, an ungulate, we’re in deep… voodoo.

  138. Is he more like a rabbit or a dog?

    He’s more like a guy who borrows $50 and forgets about it.

    Does that help?

  139. Michael has mad editing skills.

  140. Wiser, I’ll give you $100 to not pay back Michael’s $50.

  141. He’s more like a guy who borrows $50 and forgets about it.
    Does that help?

    So you’re saying he’s like my brother-in-law?

  142. You don’t have to do that, Laura.

    Wiser’s going to do the typical sales guy routine: “I don’t know what you are talking about, I never said that, I was drunk anyway.”

  143. Borrow another $50, and then taser him and it’s $200.

  144. See, it was like this. After I came back from a pee in the woods, Wiser and I were standing beside the Party Van. We were looking at the group, and Peej looked pretty toasted.

    Michael: Wiser, I bet $50 that Peej is going to sit in that greasy puddle over there.

    Wiser: Done.

    *short walk*

    Michael: Peej, I will give you $20 to sit in that nice puddle of fresh water over there.

    Peej: Kewl!!

    Fin.

  145. the typical sales guy routine: “I don’t know what you are talking about, I never said that, I was drunk anyway.”

    Sales guy? That also sounds like a middle management or bureaucrat strategy.

  146. Rocketboy has been borrowing Mr. RFH’s HP 15C calculator, even though he has a TI-35 of his own. He likes the RPN. So I looked up one on eBay and got sticker shock. I had no idea how much they went for now. There’s a gold mine at work…

    And that, boys and girls, is the difference between working hard and working smart.

  150. “And that, boys and girls, is the difference between working hard and working smart.”

    Yep, good for PJ.

  151. If by anybody, you mean Rosetta, and if by banana you mean bull whip, then yes, someone did.

  152. Did anybody stick a banana up anybody else’s tailpipe today?

    Well, James O’Keefe did something to NPR but it wasn’t with a banana.

  153. I think we might have found our house.

  157. Thanks, I went and logged in but was too slow.

  158. Nice looking place. Real nice.

  159. Your house? Whatcha mean? It sure would be nice to have five acres.

  160. Nice deal if it holds up to inspection.

  161. So you’re buying it?

    Not to be a nag but it’s a little dicey to tell the anonymous hordes on the interwebs where you are moving.

  162. Looked good when we toured it. Horse barn/pasture were in use and appeared well maintained, and the property is plenty big enough.

  163. “Not to be a nag but it’s a little dicey to tell the anonymous hordes on the interwebs where you are moving.”

    There will be 47 dead hookers buried on that property before the closing.

  164. Eh, I’ll delete the link in a few minutes. That was the plan all along.

  165. On the plus side, he won’t have to fertilize for a long time.

  166. There’s plenty of fertilizer to be had. 2 horses and a pony live there now.

  167. Link’s gone. I just wanted a few opinions. I will miss/not miss having a basement, mostly for cat purposes, but the inside was in great shape.

  168. I’ll tell you this: if the price is around $175K, it’s amazing what that will buy in some parts of the country. $175K won’t buy you a bachelor (no separate kitchen) condo in west Los Angeles, and might buy you a one bedroom condo in a really shitty part of town. $175K is barely a down payment in LA for a single-family house, on a 4000 sqft lot with a lousy alley in back of you and an apartment building on either side.

  169. What are you going to use the barn for Leon?

  170. Oh, it’s not in any of the pictures, but there’s already a functioning chicken coop, which is pretty cool. There’s about 2 acres’ worth of woods at the back of the property, and it shares a small pond with the neighboring house.

  171. Horses, Lauraw, we have 2 that we currently board.

  172. I swear I should just direct deposit my paycheck at the Home Depot.

    I installed the replacement faucet-part-that-never-wears-out Sunday and noticed that there was a leak in the supply line where it connects to the shutoff valve. Couldn’t tighten the compression fitting and stop it, so, time to replace the whole dealo with a nice, new one.

    Also, while I was gone last week one of our toilets started experiencing some issues flushing. Using my brand new toilet auger, I was able to extract the plastic thing the kid dropped in there and flushed.

    *Ponders selling this motherfucker and renting*

  173. Sadly, renting and owning are going to be nearly equal propositions for quite a while in lots of places, especially in big cities suffering from bubble hangover.

  174. George, they’re asking ~165k. I’m going to offer slightly less just to see, but I think that’s a fair price for the region and the property.

  175. True.

    *Ponders how many cups of Starbucks my equity will buy*

  176. If we can get something that inexpensive on so many acres when we retire from Clownifornia, maybe retirement won’t be so bad.

  177. We looked at another that had 9 acres and more room asking 160k, but we’d have to build a barn and fence it.

  178. Oh, they were also selling short, which I could stand, but I’m not sure I’d want to borrow more cash to add stuff.

  179. I just want enough space between me and the neighbors that I can’t hear them unless they are dynamiting a tree stump or gutting a pig. Also, I can’t wait to yell, “Hey you kids, get off my north forty!!!”

  180. George, I won’t have that. All the lots in Sumpter are shaped like piano keys.

  181. What’s goin on in the clean world tonight?

  182. Well, I presume the lot is at least 150 feet wide?

  183. We’re talking about something TX doesn’t have much of: real estate with unlimited water rights.

  184. Good evening folks

  185. Well, I presume the lot is at least 150 feet wide?

    166x166x1308x1309

  186. I get my water from a well. Which is refilled by the lake.

  187. The barn at that place has a well, the house is on municipal water.

  188. Also, while I was gone last week one of our toilets started experiencing some issues flushing. Using my brand new toilet auger, I was able to extract the plastic thing the kid dropped in there and flushed.

    We found a fork stuck in ours once.

    A. Fork.

    Took that muthafocker apart TWICE to figure it out. Always buy two of those wax seals.

  189. I now have a new reason to fear having children…

    Waitaminute, I never put anything weird in the toilet. WTF is wrong with your kids?

  190. I never put anything weird in a toilet either.

    I’m telling you, Leon, it’s when you mix your DNA with someone else’s. Strange shit happens.

  191. I gotta look into cloning.

  192. I remember playing that “I got your nose” thing with my eldest girl when she was 4. She reached up to “get” my nose, and went running into the bathroom giggling.

    Then a few seconds later I heard the toilet flush.

  193. What’s goin on in the clean world tonight?

    You’re asking that HERE?

  194. >> Waitaminute, I never put anything weird in the toilet. WTF is wrong with your kids?

    Another of the parade of joys that is autism.

  195. H a ha haa … she flushed your nose?

  196. Crap, Lent starts in a few hours. I better have one last drink.

  197. Another of the parade of joys that is autism.

    I didn’t mean anything by it, sorry.

  198. No drinks for Lent?

    WTF is up with that?

  199. Hahahaha. Dave’s Nose in Water!

  200. No drinks for Lent?

    Giving up coffee and liquid calories in general.

  201. >> I didn’t mean anything by it, sorry.

    No apology needed. That’s just a fact.

    I said the same thing to Mrs. Andy when I pulled the rubber chewy dealo out of the crapper.

  202. Do M-80’s count?

  203. I fed my goldfish tobacco from the bottom of my dad’s pack of cigarettes once.

    It kilt it horribly, but I was 4.

    Stuff in the toilet? Not so much.

  204. Apparently you cannot stuff the Koran down a toilet, but try and tell Newsweek that.

  205. >> she flushed your nose?

    She did. She was laughing her little blonde ass off too.

    Damn that was funny. I had forgotten that till you mentioned odd things in the toilet.

  206. I planted a spiderplant in some spare green tea while I wait for the soil to thaw.

  207. Spiderplants are weeds here Leon.
    Plant one and you can never get rid of it. Never
    Ever.

    Last year killed my 25 year old peace Lilly. A week of global warming (- freezing) Kilt it.

  208. They are office plants here. It’s going to have marginal “soil” until my yard is diggable, and it’s never getting anything but north-facing window light.

  209. Thanks for the feedback on the crate training all. I’m giving it thought. He tore up stuff both times I went out today. He’s even wearing Crest toothpaste. And I don’t think he actually ingested very much of the gold painted cardboard that was once a sarcophagus for a school project. And he’s only 16 months old.

  210. *bummed she didn’t get to see Leon’s potential new lovenest*

    Good luck with that Leon–it sounds wonderful.

  211. Terrible 2s. It will pass Cyn.

  212. Cyn, I’ll link it once again, but I’m editing this post in 5 min.

  213. Best dog training book I have encountered.

    http://www.amazon.com/Mother-Knows-Best-Natural-Train/dp/0876056664

  214. I trudged it around for 1 years to all of my offices Leon. Then I bought my house and planted them.

    In the remaining 15 years the spyderplant has run amok and taken over 1/3 of my yard (in stiff competition with air potato and virginia creeper. While my peace lily did well until the great freeze of 2010.

  215. oops not 1 but 10, my bad

  216. Looks nice, Leon.

    If those deer came off the property, it looks REALLY nice.

  217. Check with Zillow.com Leon.
    My house is now worth what I paid for it 15 years ago. But my insurances have it worth 3x as much. I am hiring a appraiser and have a appointment in 2 weeks.

    Hopefully my appraisal will be less so I can drop my Flood and Homeowners insurance by 50%.

    My escrow will go down! down! down!

  218. Maine gets an Obamacare waiver.

    The sisters are gonna be even more insufferable.

  219. Did I kill it?

  220. The pain in Maine falls mainly on the rest of us poor, dumb motherfuckers.

  221. vmax, I’m going to a *gasp* gun show in MA this weekend.

    I’m sure there will be loopholes all over the place.

  222. I never did see the link Leon…? Email it to me instead.

  223. Terrible 2s

    But he’s not even 2 yet. Gah.

    At least he’s so freaking cute and lovable.

  224. If puppies weren’t cute they’d never make it to dogs.

  225. Maine gets an Obamacare waiver.

    The sisters are gonna be even more insufferable.

    If this thing is such a wonderful, Skittle-shitting unicorn piece of, um, legislation, why are so many people seeking waivers from it?

  226. I will check out that book Scott. Thank you.

  227. I have friends that live on Peaks Island Andy
    Yes they are rich, they own banks.

    I have visited 2x.

    But the north Atlantic is COLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111111111111eeek

  228. Cyn, is the email you comment with a good one?

  229. Or babies, Dave.

  230. Yes it is Leon

  231. I just saw a commercial for the “Mars Needs Moms” movie, and the tagline is “How do you become a hero when the gravity is zero?”

    Um, there’s gravity on Mars.

    /pedant

  232. Watching Swordfish on Spike right now, and it’s on my favorite scene.

    Those who are honest, gotta admit same principle applies to the human offspring.

  234. Yep.

  236. Oops. I now see Cyn agrees with me.

    *waves at Cyn*

    Gotta walk the pooches…

  237. They don’t feel worthy of its greatness.

    Yeah, that’s the ticket.

  238. Sent it, Cyn. It’s just a link, so check your spambox.

  239. Leon, the house looks nice, but I must ask you: please do not send me pictures of your “special friend” anymore.

  240. *waves back at Cath*

    Hi-ee!

  241. That might’ve been me, Cyn. Halle gets my swordfish all swimmy.

  242. My special friend wouldn’t fit in your inbox.

  243. HAHAHA!

  244. Halle is pretty hot.

  245. *there were times when I could have strangle–ed her, but you know I would hate anything to happen to hee-eer.. *

  246. Dave in Euro 80’s?

  247. Oh, wait, I gotcha!

    Good scene.

  248. Hey Leon or Car in, got an exercise question for ya.

    Been doing the walking thing, and the legs are taking it much better. Is it better to walk longer, or should I up the speed? It’ll be nice enough to be outside soon, but right now it’s the treadmill.

    Dropped 20 points off the blood pressure already. i pleased the Dr. very much.

  249. Time to help boys with homework.

  250. Cyn, how did the Proctor and Gamble assignment turn out?

  251. Jay, I abhor cardio, but I’m given to understand that long walks are probably better than fast ones. Easier on the joints, easier to stick to, and more similar to ancestral behavior patterns (pre-agricultural man either walked at a comfortable pace or sprinted like his life depended on it, in other words).

  252. >> pre-agricultural man either walked at a comfortable pace or sprinted like because his life depended on it

    Fixt

    And that’s the only time I ever intend to run again myself. We didn’t invent the goddamn wheel for nothin’!

  253. I’m giving up cauliflower for Lent.

    *sticks chin out, sucks in gut*

    I can do it, with lots of prayer and meditation. I know I can.

  254. Well, if you’re running down a prey animal, you might survive if you fail, but you’d better run like you won’t.

  255. There’s an Austin lounge band called the Recliners that did the funniest cover of that song.

    “bye bye baby, bye bye ba-by goodbye”

  256. The people who brought us P90X and Insanity are fixin to drop a new program called Asylum. It looks kinda like a combination of the two. I may have to put it on my Fall ’11 to do list.

  257. I have friends that have dabbled in p90x. Near as I can figure, it’s good for getting sarcoplasmic hypertrophy (bulgy, “cut” musculature) and some general fitness. As my goal is to be a small, meat-powered forklift, I haven’t bothered with it.

  258. Anyone see Michael around anywhere?

    *fires up taser

  259. Bedtime.

  260. Is sarcoplasmic a real word? Sounds like something Jane Fonda would pull out of her ass. Never heard it.

  261. Dave, did John Berry ever get any airplay out your way?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=62okIG1DNB8

    He goes to church with my aunt and played at my cousin’s funeral. Acoustic guitar solo … “Amazing Grace” and “How Great Thou Art.”

    Holy effin’ shit. It was awesome. Just awesome.

    And as far as I know, he hasn’t done any covers.

  262. PG, bing it! I know of what I speak.

  263. btw, flight booked for St. Louis meet-up.

    Now, what hotel is everyone staying at?

    (e-mail works if you actually have an answer…..)

  264. Contrast with myofibrillar hypertropy, which is my goal.

  265. >> Sounds like something Jane Fonda would pull out of her ass.

    Ewwwww!!!

  268. Let me know when you find out, homo.

    I haven’t booked mine yet.

  269. Great tune, MCPO.

    Ahhhh, teh 80s.

  270. Acoustic guitar solo … “Amazing Grace” and “How Great Thou Art.”

    covers.

    He’ll never get far in the music business.

  271. Let me know when you find out, homo.

    Booked your flights yet?

  272. Wiser – I did a cover of Sister Goldenhair once. It got me laid, but no recording contract.

  273. Hahahahaha. I don’t think covers from the Southern Baptist Hymal count.

    No I haven’t booked my flights yet. Still trying to figure out if the missus is joining me.

    But I’ll be there on Friday for the liver warmup.

  274. It got me laid, but no recording contract.

    surprise.

    Theory still intact.

  275. Sounds like something Jane Fonda would pull out of her ass.

    Are we talking about Ted Turner or a Russian-built AA gun? Because there’s a HUGE difference.

  276. *looks in, sniffs around”

    This place smells like bodily fluids and regret.

  277. watching Larry Sanders show.

    Just had a scene between Gene Siskel and John Ritter. Occurred to me that they are both dead.

    weird.

  278. So. . . where the heck is the bald man-lesbo?

  279. Andy, check yahOOOOoooooo…

  280. No bald man lesbos here. Just little old me.

  281. Just had a scene between Gene Siskel and John Ritter. Occurred to me that they are both dead.

    weird.

    Watch old episodes of The Simpsons. That show is like a fucking Widowmaker.

  282. Andy, check your email.

    Mare, answer your goddam email!

  283. where the heck is the bald man-lesbo?

    Shaving his vulva.

  284. HAHAHA!!!

    IFC commercials for the old Ben Stiller Show.

    “This is the moment when an unknown comedian blah blah blah…..”

    Yeah….. “unknown”. How lucky was that unknown guy, who is the son of Jerry Stiller and Anne Miller, an extremely well-known comedy team, to get a comedy show on the brand-new Fox network, huh?

    “unknown” my big black ass.

  285. Watch old episodes of The Simpsons. That show is like a fucking Widowmaker.

    Holy SHIT!!!! Warren Zevon is also in this episode!!!

  286. two people who died of cancer and one of massive heart failure in one single episode……

    And that’s not even considering Rip Taylor…..

  287. I met Ben Stiller once. He is a tiny, tiny man. Seriously, he’s maybe five foot two. And not very personable. Go figure.

  288. And not very personable.

    {{{{gasp!}}}}

    fer realz????

    Color me stunned.

  289. Stiller was with Jack Black, who was happy to shake my hand. Class act. And he smells much less offensive than you would imagine.

  290. Did Stiller toss Blue Steel at you?

  291. Jack Black seems like someone you could have a drink with. He comes off as genuine in his interviews, as well as his acting.

  292. He is a tiny, tiny man. Seriously, he’s maybe five foot two.

    heh. One of my band directors is short of build. He can be rather….. short of temper.

    He said something to me Monday night about being tall and I looked at him and said “I make it a point to not comment on someone’s stature or lack thereof.”

    pause

    “I mean, who am I to attempt to out-funny God?”

  293. Jack Black seems like someone you could have a drink with.

    Really? He always strikes me as someone who tries waaaaaay too hard.

  294. Did Stiller toss Blue Steel at you?

    Uh, no. More like “Rotten Eggs, Peasant, Let’s Get The Fuck Out Of Here, Jack.”

    I think I saw Sarah Silverman that night, too, but I’m not sure.

  295. Black isn’t low key, but he doesn’t come across as an ass. He’s an overactor, just like Shatner. And he’s another one that seems like a good one to have a drink with.

  296. He’s an overactor, just like Shatner. And he’s another one that seems like a good one to have a drink with.

    Then we are definitely gonna have a blast when we get together……

  297. Other than Tropic Thunder, I have yet to Black in anything where I thought he was funny or anything special.

  298. Other than Tropic Thunder, I have yet to Black in anything where I thought he was funny or anything special.

    *nods…..

  299. Really? He always strikes me as someone who tries waaaaaay too hard.

    That night, he was there at UCLA for “Mr. Show Live,” and he and Stiller sat in the row in front of my brother, my best friend, and me.

    When it was over, I asked to shake the hand of Jeepers Creepers, Semi-Star, and he was happy that someone knew the reference. When you think of someone having a “pinched” face, that was Stiller.

    This was probably in 2003 or so.

  300. He’s the goofy big guy, not afraid of looking a little silly to try to make someone laugh. It really comes off in Tenacious D, some of his best stuff is when they are playing music. Fittingly, my favorite movie of his is School of Rock.

  301. You don’t get out much, do you J’ames?

  302. A little Jack Black goes a long way.

    Even less Ben Stiller needed…

  303. Under-rated Burt Reynolds movie: The End

    Sally Field is painfully cute in this flick.

  304. You don’t get out much, do you J’ames?

    I’m hanging out here, talking on the internet with people I’ve never met.

    Is your real name Capt Obvious?

  305. No. It’s Dash . . . Dash Riprock.

  306. Never heard of it, Wiser. Synopsis?

  307. The End is a good one. Been a while, but liked that movie.

  308. Paulie, I’m heading back to Irvine on Sunday or Monday.

    Just so you know when you’ll be heading back to the ER…

  309. Say what you will about the man and his acting style, he was genuinely glad to meet a fan. Stiller was a dick.

  310. Burt is diagnosed with something that is fatal, decides to off himself instead, meets Dom Deluise in insane asylum who offers to help…

    hilarity ensues.

  311. I”m actually going in tomorrow morning to the hospital to have my stomach scoped… they want to figure what happened and why last week. Apparently bleeding in the stomach, among other things.

    Still, if I’m still alive next Monday, I’ll be sure to get sick again.

  312. Say what you will about the man and his acting style, he was genuinely glad to meet a fan. Stiller was a dick.

    Nice to hear that about Jack. Not surprised to hear that about Stiller.

    Let’s see now….. Jack Black basically created his own career out of nothing….. Stiller was given every break possible, thanks to his famous parents…..

    And Stiller is a dick.

    I repeat:

    Color me stunned.

  313. Still, if I’m still alive next Monday, I’ll be sure to get sick again.

    Sounds like I need to get to SoCal ASAP.

  314. You should. I was even willing to Brad’s drinks last week before the big bang.

    What was I thinking?

  315. Sure, Wiser, We can not meet Paul again!

  316. Emails checked.

    Thanks, xbrad. Wiser, check your gleemail.

  317. to Brad = to buy Brad

  318. IIRC, I saw that flick a few hundred years ago.

  319. I liked that movie.

    His speech as he’s swimming back to shore is classic.

    “Save me, God and I will give you 50% of everything I make from now on! No one gives 50%!”

    (as he nears the shore)

    “Thank you, God! I’ll start paying that 10% immediately! I know I said 50%, but NO ONE gives 50%!!”

    classic.

  320. IIRC, I saw that flick a few hundred years ago.

    It was just on the this channel.

    One of those channels that plays the old b and c movies. occasionally you get a good ‘un.

  321. One of my favorite scenes of all time… From Easy Money:

    Dangerfield: I mean, she’s right. I drink too much, I smoke too much, I gamble… I got no… I got no…

    Pesci: Class?

    Dangerfield: No, no, everyone knows I got class… what is the woid for someone who can’t say “no”?

    Pesci: Sonya?

    Dangerfield: No, no, not Sonya… willpowah!… I got no willpowah.

  322. One of my favorite scenes of all time…

    Tin Cup:

    “Gimme another ball…”

  323. I thought that’s what your boyfriend says.

  324. Tin Cup:

    “Gimme another ball…”

    +1,000 over par

  325. I thought that’s what your boyfriend says.

    does xbrad know that you steal his material?

  326. Oh, Rene Russo. Don’t think she’s ever been on LH.

    Yet…

  327. “I mean, who am I to attempt to out-funny God?”

    I’m totally stealing that.

  328. xBrad isn’t worthy of my Tiger Blood Warlock soulpatterns and mindthoughts.

  329. xBrad isn’t worthy of my Tiger Blood Warlock soulpatterns and mindthoughts.

    well d’uh….

  331. I’m totally stealing that.

    why not? Hot chicks like you have been stealing my soul for years….

  332. >> Watching Sheen’s latest Ustream now… words fail me.

    He has redefined the medium.

  333. Watching Sheen’s latest Ustream now… words fail me.

    To be honest,The Adventures of Charlie the Superstar Douchebag bores me to no end. Never watched 2 & 1/2 Men and don’t plan to. Charlie will be dead soon, or he’ll recover and become the next sanctimonious anti-drug douche.

    Either way, he is really meaningless to me, in the extreme.

  334. Is Charlie’s camera an iPhone taped to a hoe?

    No?

    Piker.

  335. Is Charlie’s camera an iPhone taped to a hoe?

    probably.

  336. Never saw his TV show either, but still, I’m bored. Can’t eat, can’t drink, can’t do anything between now and tomorrow when I get scoped, so I might as well find genuine amusement elsewhere, ’cause there sure ain’t going on here tonight.

  337. What wiser said. The whole fucking family can hug a nut as far as I’m concerned.

    And my avatard thought Captain Willard was a douche.

  338. Hahahaha.

    That was the best content ever put on UStream.

  339. The whole fucking family can hug a nut as far as I’m concerned.

    Each and every one of them a Democrat. Big surprise, huh?

    And my avatard thought Captain Willard was a douche.

    Well, my avatar refuses to sit here and listen to you badmouth the United States of America.

    Gentlemen!

  340. He has redefined the medium.

    He’s replacing David Arquette’s sister? I’d heard that show was canceled.

  341. Wiser bombed Pearl Harbor?

  342. why not? Hot chicks like you have been stealing my soul for years….

    Look who’s getting all poetic!

    Of course I’ll try to use that God line and totally mess it up, which will be amusing.

  343. *hums Star Spangled Banner as we march out of the blog*

  344. Hahaha. I need to watch that movie again, because I’ve been quoting the hell out of it this week.

    Mainly Otter on social security: You fucked up; you trusted us!

  345. Later, taters.

  346. Senator Blutarsky will be holding hearing on the fiscal solvency o f Social Security soon.

  347. Trust fund balance: zero-point-zero

  348. I’m outta here, too. Brad, keep me posted on Sunday / Monday. If you’re definitely going to be here, I’ll just stay in the hospital until Tuesday.

  349. Quit going to Hoag. Got to St. Joe’s.

  350. **pokes thread with a stick**

  351. **pokes thread with a stick**

    stop that.

  352. **shoots thread with flamethrower**

    Better?

  353. Well, at least more permanent…

  354. Man, that flamethrower smarts.

  355. Oh well, only about two days and change until Big Boob Friday.

  356. We just have to wait through shirtless dudes and whatever malarkey someone serves up until then.

    YAAAAAAAaaaaayyy…

  357. …aaayyyy…

  358. …aaayyy!!!!

  359. (Not so much, really.)

  360. Been doing the walking thing, and the legs are taking it much better. Is it better to walk longer, or should I up the speed? It’ll be nice enough to be outside soon, but right now it’s the treadmill.

    I’m going to disagree with leon. It’s important to get your heart rate up, so if you’re feeling comfortable, you should up the challenge.

    Also – bikes are GREAT. Easy on the joints. I never liked ‘em before, but I’ve recently converted. Mix it up. Walking is great, but if you want to see better results you need to mix it up.

  361. I have friends that have dabbled in p90x. Near as I can figure, it’s good for getting sarcoplasmic hypertrophy (bulgy, “cut” musculature) and some general fitness. As my goal is to be a small, meat-powered forklift, I haven’t bothered with it.

    Well, I’m not a dabbler, but I don’t have bulgy, cut muscles. It is a nice all around fitness regime. A great place to start (with a novice level of fitness) if you want to be sure you’re hitting all the bases.

  362. And, please Leon, don’t make me disagree with you again.

    Let’s not let anything come between us.

  363. That’s all well and good, but what are us lazy, fat people to do?

    (Don’t say exercise, either. We’re allergic to that shit. There must be a pill or something.)

  364. Strength training typically produces a combination of the two different types of hypertrophy: contraction against 80 to 90% of the one repetition maximum for 2-6 repetitions (reps) causes myofibrillated hypertrophy to dominate (as in powerlifters, olympic lifters and strength athletes), while several repetitions (generally 12 or more) against a sub-maximal load facilitates mainly sarcoplasmic hypertrophy (professional bodybuilders and endurance athletes).

    P90X advocates 6-8 reps for men in it’s lifting. It’s not a powerlifting regime, no. but it does aim to increase strength. Matter of fact, Tony Horton talks about how the regime will make you stronger, faster, etc, for whatever sport it is you do.

  365. Mornin’

    Took the Mrs. to the airport and came to work early. Win The Future was I thinking?

  366. Sean, I was watching “Heavy” last night with my husband, and we reached a rather uncomfortable impasse.

    I would LOVE to go to one of those “fitness/fat” camps for a week. he looked at me with horror.

  367. I thought School of Rock was good.

    and, it’s spawned a whole new industry of music lessons. they do that everywhere now.

  368. Andy, what fitness tips do you have to contribute this morning?

  369. Ut oh. I see my blood pressure going up. The title :

    “Micheal Medved: Obama a Radical? Get Read”

    Glad to see that Medved is carrying the water for him.

  370. His first example? FDR. There is precedent. Ergo, Obama’s not a radical.

  371. The irony.

  372. >> Andy, what fitness tips do you have to contribute this morning?

    I got nuthin’

  373. In Egypt, women were attacked on International Women’s Day. It appears the Islamic men don’t think women and men should be treated equally. Shocker.

  374. I’m kind of torn on that Medved thing. On the one hand, I think Obama’s just a fucking incompetent Mark I, Mod. 0 college lefty who never grew up.

    Like I alluded to when I sidebarred the piece at Ace’s, never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity. And Medved’s central point is that the whole Democrat party is as “radical” as Obama … hard to disagree there.

    But I don’t think dropping the term is some sort of sooper-genius key to winning in 2012. How many campaigns has that wuss run, anyway?

  375. >> Andy, what fitness tips do you have to contribute this morning?

    I got nuthin’

    You could make something up.

  376. The issue I have, i that Medved seems more focused on chastising the right for mischaracterizing Obama … than anything else.

    A continuation of the “good man” debate.

  377. >> You could make something up.

    To avoid serious injury, never lift more than 12 oz. at a time (plus the tare weight).

  378. MJ, did you ever see that Warrior Dash stuff I mentioned a while back? They have one in Florida. 3.3 hellish miles they say. that is the Michigan one.

    They have ‘em all over the country.

  379. To avoid serious injury, never lift more than 12 oz. at a time (plus the tare weight).

    Should you warm up? Stretch?

  380. Exactly, Car in. His point is relatively sound, but the takeaway is too nuancy for Joe Voter.

    Correctly pointing out how “radical” Obama and the rest of the Dems are just resulted in the largest midterm gains evah!

    Seems like the perfect time to change strategies to me. Because, civility!!11!1. Or something.

  381. >> Should you warm up? Stretch?

    No stretching necessary, but a warm up with 1 to 2 ounces is common.

  382. I think the point Medved was trying to make was that the right needs to form a cohesive strategy as to what Obama represents. Is he a radical leftists, or more of the same?

    I realize he can be both, but in terms of campaign strategy he’s saying its better to present a uniform message. Why can’t both messages be delivered, but with different audiences? Walk and chew gum?

    I would target his base with the ‘more of the same’ message because they are really pissed about the wars, gitmo, wall st, tax extension, etc.

    For the general public I would beat the living shit out of health care and jobs. Always mentioning the two together.

    I would also attack him personally on spending our money for parties, travel, and golf. I would also mention his arrogance and narcissism.

  383. I saw the Warrior Dash, thingy. We missed the one this year, which totally sucks.

  384. To say that he’s an ordinary democrat kinda overlooks the entire idea that the party is currently controlled by people with a “radical” agenda.

    Radical may be a loaded word, but personally I find policies that drive us closer to European style socialism to be … radical.

    And, I also think the average democrat has NO idea what their party has in mind.

  385. I just checked the one near me- it’s almost completely filled up!

    It’s not until July.

  386. Only about 60 pages left of Middlemarch! Yea!

  387. Mornin, douchenoodles.

  388. I’m reading Middlemarch, too. Only its called Steppenwolf. The first part was great, but now its just dragging.

  389. Middlemarch is just the opposite. The first half ( half is almost 400 pages!) was .. hard to get through. it has picked up though.

  390. Morning Herr. How’s my your baby?

  391. And, please Leon, don’t make me disagree with you again.

    Let’s not let anything come between us.

    I was mostly commenting on the results I’ve seen people get with p90x. Most of the guys I’ve seen do it are former athletic types trying to get back into shape, so they don’t see strength gains so much as fat loss. I don’t doubt it works, but I don’t feel it would contribute directly to my particular goals, and that’s what I was trying to express.

    I’ll second the recommendation of biking as exercise over walking, as well. I’d add some specific hamstring work to balance out the heavy quadricep involvement, but it’s definitely easier on the joints than running/fast walking. Get a GOOD seat, though. Don’t sit on your all-important junk vein.

  392. Ever wake up in the middle of the night with one of those erections that refuses to let you go back to sleep?

  393. Don’t sit on your all-important junk vein.
    ——————
    Too funny. A friend of mine actually bought me a seat with a cutout because he was tired of hearing me bitch about smashing my inner cock.

  394. The beautiful thing about p90X, is that it is a great starting point for someone who wants to get serious about fitness, but doesn’t really know how to go about it. Or just wants some guidance.

    Jeff G was the one who originally told me about it, and now he’s gone on to serious strength training.

    I don’t really “do” it anymore, but have incorporated what I liked and need into one that fits my aims.

  395. ver wake up in the middle of the night with one of those erections that refuses to let you go back to sleep?

    no

  396. My wife sometimes does.

  397. It’s the pee-ons that I really hate.

  398. “I’d add some specific hamstring work to balance out the heavy quadricep involvement”

    Don’t toe clips take care of that?

  399. Toe clips help with that, but not everyone takes full advantage of the backstroke with them. Personally, I find it annoying to wear funny shoes to ride a bike, but that’s a preference.

  400. This poat is starting to smell like its title

  401. “I find it annoying to wear funny shoes to ride a bike”

    The clips I used were the ones you add to the regular pedals. Running shoes strapped down real tight work almost as well.

  402. I find it annoying to wear funny shoes to ride a bike

    Yeah, those are clipless pedals, not toe clips.

    And once you get used to them, they’re the only way to go.

  403. Connecticut may be the first state in the nation with a law that requires all employers, with over 50 employees (full or part time), to offer paid sick leave.

    Get ready Andy, a bunch of businesses should be heading your way.

  404. Passing through on the way to New Hampshire, I presume.

  405. What difference does it make. Many state residents already buy their gasoline, groceries and beer in Mass, they might as well work there too.

  406. I forgot about the new luxury tax. We will be buying our cars, trucks, boats and jewelry in Mass too.

  407. Sweet! Maybe that’ll make up for John Kerry.

    I wonder if that asswipe ever paid those Mass. taxes.

  408. John Kerry is the poster child for term limits.

  409. Sausage post up.
