Muscular Monday Motivational

Good morning and welcome to the final Monday of 2012, coincidentally the 52nd consecutive MMM — all of which have been awesome — and the final day of what’s been a pretty tumultuous year.

Now I’m not the sort to make resolutions at the turn of the year — I already live by enough weird rules — but I recognize that it’s a popular cultural pastime for many. Anything you’re going to promise yourself you’ll do and then likely fail at? I’m going to go ahead and resolve to run for some lame political office that would otherwise go uncontested. Maybe. If it’s not too much work and I somehow get laid off. Or maybe go to welding school. So, you can see that I take this whole resolution thing pretty seriously.

I could ramble on, but I’m still sick while I write this and on 3 drugs, so it’s only going to get worse. Let’s move on, then, to the double-sized image portion of this morning’s blogcast.

In case you were wondering what dedication looked like, I found a picture. I pretty much want to get jiggy with dedication at her earliest convenience.

This is what a hot chick pushing a loaded sled looks like, in case you were even more curious.

Scorpion pose, I think.

  1. Thanks Leon, for all the happy Mondays over the past year. Fist scorpion pose girl is cute…a little skinny but whattyagonnado.

    Hope you’re feeling better soon and carry some immunity going forward!

  2. *FIRST scorpion pose*

    (see what I did there?)

  3. wtf….I thought people sleep in New Years Day with hangovers.

  4. http://tinyurl.com/ydb5ztl

  5. Ick.

    Thanks for the pictures of hot men, Leon. And a very special thank you for keeping us guessing about your preferred sex.

  6. Good morning children. Thanks for the awesome poats Leon. Hope you get well soon.

  7. I resolve not to make fun of Leon’s chicks with dicks post for an entire year. I anticipate this will last until next Monday.

  8. Where’s the coffee?

  9. Hey Leon, a while back you linked to a site that had some basic, beginning weight training workout routines and exercises…do you remember it? I bookmarked it a few browsers ago.

    I hope you start feeling better soon. I’m enjoying your MMM poats a lot more now that you’ve decided to feature chicks.

  10. “But the Republican party of Mitch McConnell is not the Republican party of Lincoln. Lincoln wouldn’t stare down the opposition, he’d compromise because he’d understand that the fate of the country, and his own political career, depended on a lasting solution to the problem of education.”

    Yes, Lincoln is often thought of as a compromiser. The whole Civil War thing was a compromise between the mini ball and Demoracists.

  11. While you make a good point MJ
    Even if Lincoln compromised it was people who’s goal was to benefit the republic. If both wish a common goal compromise works.

    If both want power at the expense of the republic we are truly fucked

  12. Pupster, was it this?

    http://startingstrength.wikia.com/wiki/Starting_Strength_Wiki

    Also, to anyone worried about Dedication, those are beads of sweat, not furry bits. I zoomed way in to check.

  13. Well, nuts. We’re truly fucked.

  14. Thanks for the pictures of hot men, Leon.

    There’s only one man in this poat, and he’s way in the background. I think it says more that you were looking for him.

  15. What, precisely, is the problem of education? Our costs have risen and our outcomes worsened every year since the Dept of Ed was created. Clearly, DoE is the problem of education.

  16. Yes, that was it. Thank you.

  17. Fever’s coming down. Only 100F this morning. I think I peaked at 101.6 yesterday.

  18. so, dedication is a guy.

    good to know.

  19. What, precisely, is the problem of education? Our costs have risen and our outcomes worsened every year since the Dept of Ed was created. Clearly, DoE is the problem of education.

    The problems started with John Dewey. I think I’ve ranted about this before.

  20. DoE is a macro problem, but the micro is John Dewey. Relativism. Critical lit theory (and how that expands into every subject), etc.

  21. I know, Car in. DoE — unlike Dewey — can be killed, thus my emphasis.

  22. Even if Lincoln compromised it was people who’s goal was to benefit the republic. If both wish a common goal compromise works.

    Yes, this.

    The two Americas come into play. The two different visions of America . One is European socialism and worse.

    THe other is freedom and opportunity for all.

    We don’t want the same things, which is why we cannot compromise. Any compromise is a baby step toward THEIR vision, and a step away from ours.

    And we’ve been taking those baby steps for a long, fucking, time.

  23. Was that eliminationist rhetoric?

  24. Gonna work on having a tushie like volleyball girl.

  25. I don’t think the DoE does shit but waste money. To be honest. They put out reports and issue stupid stuff.

    The problem starts with the methodology taught to education majors. The stupid-ness of the teachers. etc. That’s more Dewey and college liberal bullshit than DoE.

  26. While you make a good point MJ

    ———————————
    I totally agree, but viewing Lincoln as a compromiser is a bit weird.

    Thomas Friedman isn’t an intellectual, he’s a historical illiterate, as are most people on the left.

    I guess education provides context, but to picture Lincoln compromising for the country and his political career is sort of silly. IIRC I think he ended up paying with his life for his political beliefs and the fate of the country.

    I think someone said Sic Semper Tyrannus, then shot him with a high powered assault AR-15 magazine capacity gun.

  27. as that eliminationist rhetoric?

    I’m fired up. I just watched that actor/actress “Demand a plan” bullshit going around.

  28. Ha! Thanks RFH.

  29. I guess education provides context, but to picture Lincoln compromising for the country and his political career is sort of silly. IIRC I think he ended up paying with his life for his political beliefs and the fate of the country.

    It’s funny, because now politicians do nothing but profit for their political beliefs, even if they’re big fucking losers*.

    *see Al Gore.

  30. The DoE creates an environment that allows Dewey and Chomsky and the like to dominate the field of education. A free market style education would quickly destroy everything they’ve accomplished.

  31. We don’t want the same things, which is why we cannot compromise. Any compromise is a baby step toward THEIR vision, and a step away from ours.
    And we’ve been taking those baby steps for a long, fucking, time.
    ——————————-
    I’d like to be in a compromising situation with that statement. It gave me tingles in my swimsuit area.

  32. I was referring to my desire to kill John Dewey as eliminationist :)

  33. Demand a Plan 2.0

    http://tinyurl.com/b7alug4

  34. Heh. I read DoE as Dept. of Energy. I was around Savannah River Plant too long.

  35. and you’re welcome, Scott.

  36. What really sucks is that Chomsky’s contributions to the study of formal language and grammar are indispensable to computer science. If he’d stuck to his discipline, he’d have scads of fans across the spectrum.

  37. Jimbro, you try out that coffee yet?

  38. Dept of Energy needs an overhaul, not destruction. They do more to hold back than to promote.

  39. We need to focus on that Jew. like a laser beam.

  40. I’d be fine with getting rid of both DoE’s. Fold the nuclear stuff into DoD.

  41. Charter and magnet schools are one way to get there, but a lot of them (at least around here) are “multicultural academies” that make regular classrooms like like Rush Limbaugh indoctrination camps.

  42. *folds nukes*

  43. The thing that’s interesting, is that they say that those raised w/o religion are more vulnerable to some radical religion filling that void. Cults. Muslim extremism. etc.

    I see the same thing with radical liberal ideas. If you’ve been raised with basically NO knowledge, you are vulnerable to really stupid ideas because your weak mental skills cannot unpack ‘em.

    That’s why that horrible book, a People’s History, did so well. Especially with Hollywood types. to them, who hadn’t read a history book up until that point, it was profound. It blew their mind. It warped them, because everything afterwards was viewed their Howard Zinn’s communist lens.

  44. I’d be okay with that approach, Roamy. Control of fissile material should fall under DoD, DHS, or Interior.

  45. I wouldn’t trust DHS with the americium out of a smoke detector.

  46. Work time. Y’all have a good day and/or feel better.

  47. We need a department to oversee the department that oversees the departments.

  48. Sorry I was in the fetal position crying mommy.
    I used to think we could change things for the better. I no longer do short of a miracle. We are a narcissistic corrupt nation of narcissists.

    Or 53% of the voters are.

    Mommy!

  49. Fair enough. I was considering the stated missions of each, not their relative effectiveness.

  50. The DHS reminds me a story a friend at Microsoft told me. The search function in Windows has always been horrible and they decided to make it work when Vista came along. To do so, they wrote an array into the code which contained keywords which the search function would uh. . . search. It didn’t occur to anybody that the solution to the search problem was to make the search function search.

  51. I gotta work a double today.

    And I open tomorrow.

    Then the rest of my schedule this week is shitty.

    FML.

  52. We need a Department of Redundancy Department

  53. That sucks. I have a fab party tonight. It’s gonna be fab.

  54. Yeah, up until Vista, Windows didn’t do any indexing for search. Every time you used it was brute force linear access.

  55. *cries

    I’m gonna try to do 30 min of cardio right now before I go in, so this day doesn’t completely suck.

  56. *checks Carin’s pulse*

  57. On a whim, I googled the term Lemon Bear Dick Punch and was happy to see that H2 exclusively uses this term. No other website is awesome enough to use it.

    But then I googled it’s more sophisticated version: citrus Ursine Weiner Beverage. Again, we dominate, but I saw a non-H2 link:

    http://www.ofelio.com/zoom.php?id=17736&lang=en&start=5&length=20

    WTF is this? And why are they publishing our entire posts?

  58. That’s the back up site

  59. And it is copyrighted Tush!

  60. We have a backup site?

  61. I lied

  62. We don’t have a backup site?

  63. We should contact them and have them remove that stuff.

  64. I like it better over there.

  65. We should contact them and have them remove that stuff pummel them with a sock full of pennies.

    This is no time for half-measures.

  66. It’s less cluttered, I like that too

  67. “I like it better over there.”

    hahahahah

    Compromise: Liberals getting their way.

    Anyone who still thinks compromise is productive is in a fricken dream world, Vman, I’m looking at you.

  68. If you try to comment there it just sends you back to this dump.

  69. Scott, we may never get out of this ghetto!!

  70. Why? Why? Why does this guy have any air time, print space, or anything else. He’s a barely functioning idiot.

    —————————–
    Not yet, probably will make it at work for something better than the break room swill they have. (Roamy gave me a bag o’ coffee for my SS gift). I took off Christmas week and haven’t been back yet.

  72. I’m going to drive north and meet Mare before 2013

  73. HA! Dave, you can help me take down the Christmas tree and other assorted decorations. Also, my floor is atrocious and the house needs a good dusting. Oh, and my garage could use a good sweeping.

  74. Lots of firing going on today in the NFL. I bet Romo goes too.

  75. I would like to be fired from the NFL. Probably a very nice severance package.

  76. wait what?

  77. Dave – review this instructional video on how to help Mare take down her tree (start at 50seconds)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IZuW18y23so

  78. I made it to work and feel pretty good, but that’s likely the combination of sudafed and dayquil masking awful symptoms.

  79. Good Last Morning of 2012, cool kids and disgusting nerds

  80. Do this, aim it at Michael’s house.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zcUQQYqbfss

  81. What about all us disgusting nerds? Do we get a “good last morning” or should we just put ourselves in the trash can to save y’all the trouble?

  82. My fear this morning is the GOP will pull some last minute compromise out of its ass that consists of giving Obama and the Dems everything they want, and still managing to get blamed for the bad outcome.

  83. Fixted

  84. I thought they already did that X.

    What? Why is mare looking at me?
    Must be my studlyness.

  85. My studlyness doesn’t get me looked at. I’m too short.

  86. Way to go Leon, you’re a trooper. Be sure to cough on everything in the break room.

  87. Lick all of the doorknobs before you leave the office, Leon.

  88. People want your germs

  89. I locked myself in my office and I’ve been touching nothing outside of it before washing my hands. Blame the company for giving me so little PTO that I feel I have to be here.

  90. Leon,

    Thank you for the butts. Those are amazing enough that I don’t even mind there’s a 50/50 chance they have weiners.

  91. None of this matters. Obamacare will suck a trillion dollars out of the economy to be given to people that are the least likely to use it responsibly.

    It’s a recession engine that has just been fired up. Weeeeeeeeeee!!

    See? I’m being more positive already.

  92. Ah. The good ‘ol Lemon Bear Dick Punch.

  93. For a second, I thought that said Leon licks himself in the office.

    Leon is Pupster?

  94. Every MMM has been so categorized since the inaugural LBDP poat.

  95. I know it’s crazy, but LBDP cured me of teh AIDSEbolaManBearPig Flu and has never left me with a hangover. It’s really a miracle.

  96. I have met Pupster, and I am not Pupster. He’s way cooler than me.

  97. I got a Nook Tablet for a gift and it’s fantastic for reading books. Add interweb tubes and it’s fucking AWESOME.

    I downloaded an app called Pepperplate and have been writing up recipes for a couple of days. It’s good for shopping lists and menus also. Heartily recommended.

    My only complaint about the Nook is that the battery life suxxors.

  98. Yes, the recipes will find their way to the blog. But I’m having too much fun tapping on my Nook to do so at the moment.

  99. My big plan for New Year’s Eve is to go pick up the neighbors at the airport this afternoon.

  100. I just realized that I can spend hours in a mall and have no desire whatsoever to buy a single thing. When I go to a grocery store I must bludgeon myself about the head and shoulders to not buy every nifty thing I see on the shelf.

  101. I can’t spend long hours at the mall. I get stabby.

  102. I’m much of the same mind on the two things, Jew. I don’t need anything at the mall, but I’m curious what I could do with jicama.

  103. “wait what?”

    LOL

  104. Damn MJ and his fake positivity!!

  105. Did anyone get the 2012 review for this place? I’d like to see it.

  106. The only reason I go to the mall is for Lemon Bear Dick Punch. But even at that, I’m in and outta there in 10 minutes, tops.

  107. I think I’ve gotten a review for all the sites. I think anyone who’s an admin gets one.

  108. Jicama is a fantastic snack food. However, if you want ten fingers it’s a no go.

    In CA they peel and slice it into carrot like sticks. Here you buy a slightly smaller than football size and wonder what sap you can convince to cut it for you.

  109. Did anyone get the 2012 review for this place?

    You’re all buttholes & Santa glues the wrapping paper on your presents with elf-semen.

  110. I didn’t get one for H2 this year or last year.

  111. I went to the mall recently.

    Most kids look like idiots.

  112. Those are amazing enough that I don’t even mind there’s a 50/50 chance they have weiners.

  113. Most kids look like idiots.

    Welcome to my world, 10 years ago.

  114. Just rechecked: I’ve gotten two and it doesn’t appear that one’s been generated for this joint yet.

  115. Most kids look like idiots.

    The boys all need a haircut, and the girls need to learn the difference between pants and tights.

    I’m not complaining about the latter thing all that much, but the mop heads and biebercuts need to go.

  116. Jicama is a fantastic snack food. However, if you want ten fingers it’s a no go.
    In CA they peel and slice it into carrot like sticks. Here you buy a slightly smaller than football size and wonder what sap you can convince to cut it for you.

    10/10 on jicama, but -6 for wanting a Mexican to chop it for you.

  117. Yep Mare, I like jicama, but not quite so much of it. They need to come up with a non-family-size version. About the size of a lemon is all I really need sliced in a salad or whatever.

  118. I have discovered that plaintain coins fried in coconut oil, smashed down, and then fried again are amazingly good.

  119. Well I’ll be. Earlier this year all the execs had to take a 10% haircut. I just got it back.

  120. Dip your jicama slices in Sriracha. Your life will never be the same.

  121. Tough to pick a winner today. *puts finger in nose* Ok, I have selected. As for the pics, the dedication sweat bead pants girl is also my top choice. Excellent spread today Leon.

    Is there a betting pool on the hour in which the repubs give the dems everything?

    Congratulations Dave. May all of you have a prosperous and happy 2013.

  122. Grats Dave.

    My favorite this week is either black-thong-cellphone girl or long-hair-nerd-glasses-cellphone girl.

  123. >>Earlier this year all the execs had to take a 10% haircut. I just got it back.

    They glued it back to your pate?

    ————————
    Wednesday or Thursday is my guess. Taxes will go up, then **whamo!** we’ve just cut your taxes. This is a tax CUT.

    The Democrats will have completed the total confiscation of all issues and will be the tax cut party in favor of big government and free shit.

  127. Next Monday…

    my new year’s fantasy is boehner being arrested, tried, convicted, and punished for felony stupidity and incompetence.
    lordy lord i hate that friggen dunce.

  129. Ok, so I’ve seen part of two mainstream movies in the past 24 hours.

    Both of them represent working in a corporation as evil and destructive.

    The guy turns down a job making 80K a year to continue in construction–a job given to him by his BIL–and we’ve already established a few sentences earlier that by keeping this guy on, the BIL is losing money on the job.

    They are both happy that he turned down the job so he can keep working construction for the BIL.

    Ace is right. We lost the culture war. Stupidity and emotionalism trump reason everywhere.

  130. Working in a corporation can suck (destructive to a person’s hopes and dreams), but there’s nothing inherently evil about it.

    Working in government almost invariably makes you evil over time.

  131. Fussy Dork, I don’t really know what sriracha is. I am led to believe it is some kind of hot sauce?

    Frequently referred to as “Rooster” sauce by semi-famous Obama voters, or “Cock” sauce, if there are Asians around who don’t know that cock is a funny word.

    Remember: if your food doesn’t come out the same color & spicyness as it went in, you didn’t use enough hot-sauce.

  132. Thank you nice peoples

  140. Take my man card please. I just had to buy Always “panty liners” for my woman since she’s working and I did the shopping. There better be a blowjob at the end of this path.

  141. *goes outside to smoke a cigarette*

  142. If you get the BJ, you keep the card, but you’ll have to put it in escrow until then, Jimbro.

  143. I just had to buy Always “panty liners” for my woman since she’s working and I did the shopping.

    The fact that you have clean & clear title to a(n obviously) fertile woman isn’t enough of a man card for you? Buying them things is just showing off, if you ask me.

  144. I’m compensating until then by smoking a stinky cigar and watching ESPN.

  145. I find it helps to buy dark chocolate along with lady products. I get sullen, knowing nods from men in the store.

  146. You should grow a mustache and start wearing lots of leather, Jim. You know, for the manliness.

  147. All good tips! That’s why I come by here, for shared wisdom and LBDP’s

  148. Jimbro, if this ever happens again, root around in the bargain racks for the marked down Kroger or generic brand. She’ll never ask you again. Or buy a pack of adult diapers just so she can have all bases covered.

    True wisdom can’t be faked.

  150. I have never had occasion to visit the feminine products aisle.

    I do wear a hood and stare at my feet a lot when stealing condoms from the free clinic.

  151. You know, sometimes I think liberals should try to implement a total gun ban. The outcome will not be what they hoped for. If they want to find out what the outcome will be, they should attempt a small scale experiment by trying to declaw a grizzly aided by nothing else but their superior moral posture and a brand new law making it illegal for bears to have claws.

  152. >>Or buy a pack of adult diapers just so she can have all bases covered.

  160. 0bama is speaking now on the cliff talks, it sounds like he’s not on prompter. Stammering and a lot of “negro dialect”.

  161. LW, Sriracha sauce is wonderful stuff, perfect for adding a little kick to any food. Giant Eagle and Kroger carry it in their ethnic food section. I believe Crazy Bear is a big fan as well. I like it on my eggs.

  162. Sriracha is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.

    Well, those of us who don’t have issues with heartburn and such, anyway.

  163. NRO says sounds like a deal on the Tax part has been made.

    450K+ taxes will rise, just enough to save blue state senators from getting screamed at. Red state senators just hope people will forget about a tax raise.

  164. Oh, no deal on the spending part yet, which means they are arguing whether to spend 5% more or 20% more.

  165. Spending will never be cut. Hyperinflation will come first, and then all real transactions will be made in Singapore dollars.

  166. *TWITCH*

  167. I’m not a fan of hot chiles to begin with, and now am much more wary of all hot things since The Tricky Poblano Incident of 2012.

  172. What were you hoping to achieve with eggnog?

  173. D’oh….there is always a good anal probe in the fine print.

    though couples earning more than $300,000 a year and individuals earning more than $250,000 would lose part of the value of their exemptions and itemized deductions, under the terms of the emerging agreement.

  174. You need to frontload the alcohol by chugging a ⅕ of Wild Turkey 101 before you start on the eggnog.

  175. I repeat my advice to men. Make sure no one ever has access to your sperm. Get a vasectomy if you must.

    From one shoulder blade across to the other, and up my neck, I get grabby spasms if I try to do anything.

  183. I repeat my advice to men. Make sure no one ever has access to your sperm. Get a vasectomy if you must.

    This isn’t exactly news. Over 20 years ago there was a case, I believe in Kansas as well, of a man who married a woman who was already pregnant by another man*. When the relationship “didn’t work”, guess who got stuck with child support payments. & yes, the court system upheld it, IIRC to the Kansas Supreme Court.

    The big lesson is, don’t be responsible, because you’ll pay for it.

  190. I can’t believe my dog is so fucking serious about having his spot on the couch. I have never seen that before. He was PISSED.

    But, I guess, dogs really don’t have much else in life.

  191. Aww, thanks for the kind words Wiser. We love having you guys over. And you two are no slouches in the kitchen either!

  192. Yay – haircut for me time!

  193. My dog is pretty particular about his ‘spot’ too. It works out nice, though, because it is situated on the couch where I can tuck my feet under to keep them warm.

  194. RUN, WISER! RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!!!!!!

  195. I can’t believe my dog is so fucking serious about having his spot on the couch. I have never seen that before. He was PISSED.

    that was hilarious!

  196. I am reeeeeeeeeeeally starting to hate Skyrim.

    Also, good last day of this year to y’all.

  197. So I step out on to my back porch to have a smoke. While I’m out there, here comes my dog and the neighbor’s dog, running up the stairs to say hi to me.

    Then I let them inside while I finished my cigarette. Neighbor’s dog jumps onto the bed, then runs around for a bit, then comes back to the sliding door and starts jumping up and down.

    And proceeds to lock the door, forcing me to walk down the stairs and around the house, through the snow, in my socks, to get back into the house.

  198. RUN, WISER! RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!!!!!!

    not sure if he’s preparing to kill me or kiss me.

  199. Cyn, Scott and I were on the couch. The Wisers were on the two recliners.
    I’m in Bubba’s spot, but didn’t know it. He climbs up on the couch between me and Scott, walks behind Scott, then lies down behind him with his head turned toward me, just…STARING. With the strangest look on his face.

    I reached out to pat his cute snoot, and he snapped at me (a non-serious snippy snap). I started laughing at him, and he did his ‘bow ROO ROO ROO’ ticked-off sounding bark. This happened a couple times more, until he got off the couch and circled back to me. Mrs. Wiser went to pat him and he snapped at her, too!

    We were all just wondering at him and couldn’t figure out what his deal was. Then Scott suggested I move over. As soon as I did, Bubba took my spot, curled up, and all was right as rain. It was obvious at that moment, just from the relief in his body language, that he had been ticked off about the seating arrangements.

    Funny as Hell. Again, I never saw him act that way before. He was so very perturbed.

    Old dogs get a personality.

  200. >> Neighbor’s dog jumps onto the bed, then runs around for a bit, then comes back to the sliding door and starts jumping up and down.

    Is that the one that knocked me over?

  201. Is that the one that knocked me over?

    yep. ain’t she a peach??

  202. It was obvious at that moment, just from the relief in his body language, that he had been ticked off about the seating arrangements.

    HAHA! Oh that’s hilarious. He deserves a treat or five just for that personality.

  203. When he snipped at Mrs. Wiser I was too puzzled by his behavior to remember to discipline him. That was a bad oversight. I should have hauled his ass to the spare room and left him there to cool his heels for a couple minutes.

  204. Who’s gonna watch the Liberty Bowl with me?

  241. Been a tough year for a lot of my friends.

  242. There’s a restaurant in Bangkok called the Spice Market. It is famous for authentic Thai food, and killing tourists.

  243. As long as the tourists aren’t the Thai food.

  244. That restaurant is located in one of the big hotels, a Hyatt or Marriot or something, but the locals go there for really fine Thai food.

    It may be some kind of covert Buddhist jihad against occidentals.

    Right about now I was sitting in the ER waiting.

  303. Who was injured, Scott?

  304. I attacked a project today. The second floor of our house smells of rubbing alcohol, bleach, grout sealant, Ajax and silicone caulk.

    The buzz is kind of pleasant.

  305. Scott had something removed 3 years ago, and I can’t believe it’s been that long ago.

  306. And what did you do to your second floor?

  307. Shower maintenance Mare.

  308. Appendix? Tail?

  309. Leon my intestines ruptured.

  312. I always wanted to know what happened, so what happened? That sounds damn near unpossible.

  313. Holy crap, man, that sounds awful. Did you eat a bunch of Pop Rocks and drink Diet Coke or something?

  314. Oh, my good Lord, Scott.

  315. How did it burst? Bar fight? Sunflower seeds? Spicy food?

  316. He had diverticulitis, inflammation, infection and then perforation.

  325. I’d say nice Trading Places callback to Hotspur, but I doubt he was going there.

  326. There was a dude about a decade ago went nuts in an Albertson’s in Irvine with a sword, decapitating people right up until a cop dropped him with his M4.

  327. Chopped out about 6″ of damaged intestine.
    Colostomy bag for 3 months to let things heal up.
    More surgery to reconnect gut.

    I just went back in time and this was one of my first comments after surgery. I was hitting the Morphine Buddy kind of hard.

    “I fhink. this fairly common. About an hour ago a new pain developed and I noticed a new pain and some developing heartburn. I was getting a little concerned and considering bringing it to someones attention when the door swung open. The nurse just magically appeared with a syringe of Pepcid to add to my dinner tubes.”

  328. *scratches Irvine, CA off her To See List™*

    Message received. Ten minutes. Roger that.

    I didn’t miss a dose after that guidance.

    Scott, it didn’t occur to us that making you laugh would hurt your belly, sorry about that.

  342. Dang Scott, was it Laura’s cooking? I now understand why you’re in charge of the meat. ;-)

  343. HAHAHA! No denial from LauraW!

  344. It just happens. For some reason it’s real common around Christmas.

  345. Mare, after my first round of surgery you said this about me….

    For hate, of course.

  375. G Mohawk, I did not know this about you. Or missed it. You have the daughters?

    Some of the best times of my life lately have been snuggin up with them on the sofa and watching movies I didn’t care about.

  376. Enchanted wasn’t awful. Saw that in the theater.

  377. OMG! Wish I was back to hugging the commode!

  378. Yeah, Dave, I think we discussed our Abby’s once. Daughters scared me at first but quite the blast, just 7 and 5.

  379. Hmm, social hugging is always awkward for me. I’m not from a huggy family, so it’s just weird. Plus there’s usually the “try not to let them feel the pistol” thing.

  380. OH! Duh! My bad.

    I likely made jokes about you going insane in 10 years.

    You’ll live. But you will know things no man wants to know. Happy New Year to you and yours.

    MCPO, I’m sorry you are still ailing. No Jamesons for you tonight. I don’t make the rules.

  381. there’s usually the “try not to let them feel the pistol” thing.

    Wait, I thought that was the point of the whole hugging thing?

  382. Wrong pistol.

  383. Ah, I stand corrected ;)

  384. I can hug inappropriately too. Ask around.

  394. Dave’s a gentleman, he told you about the flour hand prints rather than let you wander into an awkward social situation. ;-)

  395. *pushes another box o’wine to Dave*

    *slides a glass of bourbon on the rocks to MCPO*

  396. *gives Pepe diplomatic status*

  397. Aggie – THANK YOU! *reaches for the bottle*

  398. Happy 2013 Hostages!

  399. Happy New Year, Vmax!!

  400. NO BOURBON FOR SICK TUMMY .. oh fuck he’s into it.

    Ah well, perhaps it’ll kill germs.

    WHO THE FUCK CALLED ME A GENTLEMAN? WHO JUST DID THAT AND SIGNED HIS OWN DEATH.. oh.. well shoot. Thanks peps.

  401. Have fun.

  402. Pepe,
    It’s not so bad with the pancake holster in the small of the back, but the full-sized 1911 in the shoulder-rig is a little awkward.

    Wishing all the hostages a better 2013, as 2012 sucked ass…
    Happy New Year, to you and yours!
    From Anita and me.

    Hotspur, SHUT IT!

  403. Just pretend drinking tonite.

  404. Good deed for the year done. I just picked up my neighbors from the airport.

  405. Good deed for the year done.

    If you wait ’til the last minute… :D

  406. Did anybody complain that anybody else’s moderately-priced domestic champagne wasn’t Korbel today?

  407. well done xbrad. And Happy New Year to you.

    Now that I’ve lost a bunch of ugly fat I need to reconsider my carry options. In the winter I can hide the .45 in a shoulder rig, but I prefer the SMOTB back paddle. Just can’t reach it as fast as I’d like.

  408. OK, one redeeming quality – using a Beach Boys song at the end.

  409. Dave – From whom do you buy your shoulder rigs?

  410. Heh, in a crowd, Dave is the LEAST likely person you’d expect to have a 45 hidden under his coat.

  411. Dinner tonight will be leftover Thanksgiving turkey, dressing, cranberry and maybe some squash.

  412. I thought I was the LEAST likely!?!

  413. I haven’t met you, so I can’t judge.

  414. J’Ames – I’m a tiny, wizened old man. . .

  415. Yeah, right!

  416. MCPO, I’m a big fan of Galco rigs.

    Shoulder rig.

    Back rig

    http://www.usgalco.com/ViewMorePic.asp?ProductSKU=MOB212B

  417. Tiny? Aren’t you like 6’2″ if you stand up straight?

  418. I have had 4 confrontations while legally carrying concealed. 3 of the times I never touched the gun. I am very polite to people when I carry.

  419. Jay, I’m disarming cause I’m so fuckin cute.

    But I am usually armed.

  420. When he gets out of his Rascal you mean Leon.

  421. You might find this debate interesting, Chief:

    http://tinyurl.com/b6wa3w5

  422. Well yeah. I said “stand”, not “walk”.

  423. MCPO Keeps his Glock 18 in a purse in the basket of his Rascal with 5 30 round mags.

  424. Ok, time for me to attempt to clean myself up in a presentable manner for the neighbor’s party. Hope y’all enjoy your evening!!

  425. My bad they are 33 round assault mags.

  426. Dave,
    The SMOTB works for me with the “Combat Commander” (smaller 1911), but not with the full-frame. There, I’ve got to go to the shoulder-rig.
    I’m a skinny-fuck, kinda like Scott.

  427. Dave – That rig is backwards!! ;-)

  428. This is a local start-up and seems to be taking-off pretty well.

    http://www.blade-tech.com/Eclipse-Holster-pr-1207.html

    ChrisP

  429. Heh. YOU’RE A TOWEL MCPO.

    all seriousness aside, barfing can be hard on the face, if you barf like me and really throw yourself into it, so I hope the peepers are ok.

    Hey Aggie! Please look awesome. OK good!

    Chrisp just mentioned the one firearm I still cover. Bastard.

  430. Sean, Love Actually debate was funny. Like watching a H2 thread.

  431. >>J’Ames – I’m a tiny, wizened old man. . .

    Jay, you have seen Rosetta? Take away a large chunk of body fat, beard and douche, and you have MCPO. Tiny wisened old man, my foot.

  432. I guess just slipping a 4506 inside your belt is considered bad form?

  433. covet.

  434. Pupster.

  435. Chris I like knives this one is nice

    http://www.blade-tech.com/PROFILI-Black-pr-1092.html

    I have never heard of that steel have you?

  436. Happy New Year ladies and gentlemen, oh and Hotspur too! ;-)

  437. I missed the Love Actually debate, since my DVR is on the fritz right now. Thanks for that, Sean. It was funneh.

  438. Evenin’ folks. Happy New Year’s eve.

  439. Hot date was fun. But there was a lot less guilt sex than I anticipated.

  440. I love Kershaw Dave and have a few onion, scallion, and chives.
    I also like Al Mar Damascus.

  441. carry knife

    Hawt.

    Apparently I’m the only one that’s ready. Sigh…

  442. Hi, Andy. I hear you’re not in b-rad’s neighborhood this year.

  443. Steel is from Bohler. Similar to 440C, but has some cobalt added. Not a super steel, but decent. I haven’t worked with it.

  444. Vmax,
    No, I haven’t. Anita did some IT work for them, and has been to their factory. They are very close to BiW’s house.
    She came back with a bad case of “The Gimmie Gimmie Gotchas”, as they have many nice toys that she wants, but does not NEED.
    They have MANY nice toys. She likes the knives, too…

    Dave,
    The Commander is the gun that was burgled from me back in ’95, or so. I got a call from Washington State Patrol in, perhaps 2010, that said; “Chris, we have your stolen gun. Would you come and pick it up?”
    I figured it would be totally trashed, but it was pristine! The bad guy took very good care of it. Tools of the trade, I suppose…

  445. I am sorry for you Jew
    Best wishes at least the Mayan apocalypse did not get you

  446. that knife fits in my back pocket like a glove.

    easier to carry than 4 pounds of .45

    Happy New Year my dear friends. I love you almost as much as Scott and that’s something right there.

  447. ChrisP Did you read my first book? What did you think?
    I have 20k words on my 2nd book. I want to write this book.
    Carin? Anything?

  448. Thanks, Vmax. I told my boss on the 20th, ‘If I wake up dead tomorrow I won’t be coming to work.’

  449. Dave,
    That’s 4 pounds of comfort, and 200 grain Speer “Flying Ashtrays” in front of 7.5 grains of unique powder at about 1,000fps…

  450. I want everyone to stay healthy, get healthy, be healthy. I’m just not all Bloomberg about it.

  451. Stop having fun!!

  452. I will MCPO
    I was taunting you but you ignored me
    put up your rascal I will challenge you!

  453. My rascal is sportin’ a 440 Hemi with a Holley Trip set and a Tarantula manifold.

  454. My nephew has a viral video. He is really stupid
    Carkour
    He almost died 2x and was stupid more

    if that doesn’t work click on Carkour

    He is lucky he didn’t get dead.

  455. Santa brought the 19 year old boy a paddle ball toy:

    http://www.oldtimecandy.com/paddle-ball-game.htm

    He can’t get the hang of it and keeps hitting himself, it’s pretty funny.

  456. Vmax,
    I keep getting “This document is a newer version of Word. Would you like to download the compatibility module?”
    I tell it yes, it downloads and says “No compatible software found”, sort of a Fuck YOU.
    I have “office XP on this machine. It’s old. All my stuff is old. I’m old.
    So it goes…

  457. Ew. Teh Clenis had a whole category of video clues on Jeopardy tonight.

  458. Obligatory for Pepe:

  459. Rumor Control says Chavez kicked teh bucket.

  460. Rumor Control says Chavez kicked teh bucket.

    If so, a great way to end the year.

  461. Happy New Year all you funny fockers! Thanks again for another delightful year of pics and gifs and funnys.

    Wish you all a great 2013

  462. Just as long as Jeff Goldblum and Abe Vigoda survive.

  463. Anita was at Costco the other day and saw “Locked On” by Clancy. She picked it up, remembering the early Clancy novels.

    Now, she is totally hooked. It’s like “Clancy has got the band back together, with Ryan, Mary-Pat, Chavez, John Clark, and all the boys.”

    As she is reading, she is looking on Google Maps and exclaiming: “Here is the location of the Safe House!”

    I’m gonna have to get that book away from her…

  464. Oooh….I think we have it at Sam’s….

  465. Oso,
    She totally can’t put it down! It’s like the old days with “Hunt For Red October”.
    Pick it up!
    I’ve not seen it, of course, but I can tell…

  466. “Locked On” by Clancy

    Really? I had given up after the last few collaboration novels. They weren’t as good. In fact, downright predictable.

  467. Happy New Year Nova Scotia!

  468. Speaking of the Clancy book,
    I just went into the kitchen to refresh my drink, Anita was standing there, having come in from the garage, having a smoke.
    She had dropped her coat, on the way to the recliner, yet, there she stood, book in hand, unable to move to the recliner.

    I’m gonna have to get the book from her…

    .

  469. Do we have any Nova Scotia lurkers?

    What is 2013 like?

  470. Still

    At

    Work

  471. >> Hi, Andy. I hear you’re not in b-rad’s neighborhood this year.

    Correct. Had to stick around the homefront this time.

  472. Jay,
    I’ve not done ANY of the “collaboration” books.

    Anita says that “This One” totally is “Old Time Clancy”.

    Not touched it, at this point(she would hurt me), but, when she’s done. I’ll get it…

  473. Holy cow, Clemson is gonna upset LSU.

  474. Wow… bookmakers have got to be pooping their pants.

  475. I hope you’re getting some great tips, Carin.

  476. I’m going to pray (in about a minute) that every single one of you have a better 2013.

    Although this morning it occurred to me that Obama is going to be inaugurated FOR ANOTHER FOUR YEARS!!! (FU), I’m going to hold my head up and carry on for the cause. And it helps that I have you all here to help me do that. Thank you.

    Scott, I meant what I said.

    Also, COCK!!!

  477. sonsabeetches

  478. Kill me now.

  479. What are the odds that Obama makes it to 2016 without inciting massive civil unrest?

  480. Amen, Mare; aaaaa-men

  481. I take it Dave had LSU and the points.

  482. goddamn.. oh wait. *smooches mare on the cheek*

  483. Who has meeting Mare as their 2013 Resolution? What’s the Vegas line on that happening?

  484. NOBODY MEETS THE GREAT AND POWERFUL (smelling) MARE!!!

  485. Come Spring, I may ‘tune-up’ the Ducati and do a “Cross Country” to find, and meet, Mare. After all, she is a native of the Pacific North Wet, where BiW, and I reside.
    I’m fascinated that NONE of us have ever met “Mare”.
    For God sakes, even XbradTC, BiW, and I have met, in a venue that Mare would be comfortable. Engine-House Number nine.

  486. Whose turn is it to punch Josh Hamilton in the face in lieu of Sean?

  487. HA! I have been to the Engine House.

  488. Sean,
    DO NOT, look behind the curtain!

  489. I’m ringing in the New Year by re-watching some Sherlock. A Scandal in Belgravia.

  490. I still can’t believe the Astros will be in the AL this year.

  491. “What are the odds that Obama makes it to 2016 without inciting massive civil unrest?”

    Zero! Z.E.R.O.!!!

  492. Mare,
    The three of us would have been honored to meet you there, and, perhaps, gotten a little rough in the parking-lot.
    Hugs on you, and Happy New Year!

  493. Mare, were you the fat chick getting drunk and grabbing her friend’s bewbs?

    Have we really already met?

  494. They couldn’t hang in the NL oso. All the junior league players are in the AL.

    *prepares for onslaught

  495. XbradTC,
    Mare is definitely not the server that was looking over your shoulder when you said:” I’d totally pound her in the squeak-hole.”

    I thought that was “VERY” classy, as did she.

  496. Heh, xbrad was using his out-loud voice inappropriately?

  497. HA!

  498. J’ames, the DH.

  499. Oh, yes!
    And the server was cute as shit!
    Her eyes got very round at Xbrad!
    She was “Shocked, Shocked, I tell You!

  500. So, did we go over the fiscal cliff?

  501. Love you all.

  502. Happy New Year you east coasters you!

  503. Counting down now….

  504. Happy New Year!!!!

  505. Uh oh, sounds like MJ is trashed.

    Somebody get the markers out.

  506. Love and hugs to you back, MJ and all the ET Zone Peeps!

  507. Heh. The “East Coasters” here just set off fireworks.

  508. That was the night my inflatable sheep called me and asked me to dork her in the squeakhole. So it’s not like the waitress was anything special.

  509. Happy New Year! The gun fire is loud!

  510. Sparky just had fits over the fireworks here. Three more time zones of that.

    Yay.

  511. Happy new year, you miscreants.

  512. Poor Sparky.

  513. Happy New Year!

  514. Sparky can’t hug me any closer if he tried. I should have doped him a bit.

    In other news, that Gridiron Chocolate Cake I made for the party.. the boys and I whipped out two this afternoon and kept one here. OMG. If you don’t drink a tall glass of milk with that, yer doin’ it wrong.

  515. Doesn’t Arizona have something like 17 time zones? Sparky’s in for a long night.

  516. It’s 18, Jew; you were just about spot on. Hell, I may dope myself up. Wheee!

  517. Still a smattering of small arms fire from the hills. Must be those evil “assault” weapons that fire 230 rpm!

  518. I wonder how many are legal.

  519. slip me some of Sparky’s dosage, willya?

  520. MOM! XBRAD’S ON THE KETAMINE AGAIN!

  521. There’s always someone who’s a sucker for Special K.

  522. I wonder how many are legal.

    All of them. Well, up until about inauguration day.

  523. We need a new poat for the new year. Xbrad, why not launch yours… it is Tuesday-ish

  524. Happy New Year, future peoples.

  525. I don’t think even Obama can negate the 2nd Amendment without Congressional and SCOTUS approval. . . yet.

  526. Just in case I can’t stay awake, I’ll say Happy New Year to all the peeps in all the time zones.

    Mmmmmm’wah!

  527. Cyn, I can’t get the dashboard open. If you wanna update the scheduled time on TTT, that’s fine.

  528. Nevermind. Ass is here!

  529. I’ve got a long night ahead with my thunder buddies. Happy New Year Central Time! Happy New Year Mountain Time! Happy New Year AZ (Cyn)!!!! Happy New Year Pacific Time!

  530. New ass Year, New Poat!
