  1. *maybe it’s worth it.

  2. It’s scary here. Did the snow monster eat every single Hostage?!

  3. Whew! At least Mare’s up. That is all.

  4. I’ve not been eaten, I’m just busy studying the STL in case someone quizzes me about it.

  5. What the fuck? This post sucks one million, three hundred sixty seven thousand, nine hundred and eighty five winkie doodles.

    Hi mare. Scott thinks we’re the same person.

  6. I think we are too.

  7. Hi Mare-J. How are you “two” today?

  8. You both don’t need to answer.

  9. MJ, I have enjoyed seeing you on the two video links in the last 2 BBFs.

    And I enjoyed what you said too.

    I miss calling Rosetta an assface.

  10. Me too.

    We’re fine Car in.

  11. Thanks me-mare. I’ve been thinking about doing some different things.

  12. Bukowski understood the Dunning-Kruger Effect before Dunning & Kruger. If we were still in Philadelphia, we’d be planning to drink ourselves stupid & perhaps arrested on March 9th. It’s still a possibility up here in magical Hamster Land, the Newer.

  13. I like Trudy.

  14. Yeah, Trudy’s face often mimics my cat’s when I dance “at” him.

  15. WTF?? doen’t begin to cover it.

  16. I like Mare’s tats, but I thought she had a cat?

    Just another lie.

  17. Some people like both cats and dogs. Or in other words, they are like two people in one (SYWM).

  18. Seriously, how is Krugman taken seriously anywhere? He’s silly even. This is in the same paragraph:

    “But aren’t we facing a fiscal crisis? No, not at all.”

    “Yes, there’s a long-term fiscal problem, but it’s not urgent that we resolve that long-term problem right now.”

    So there is a long term problem (because the government has been unwilling to solve it NOW), but we don’t need to worry about it now. Okay.

  19. I liked the video with MJ’s dog…it made him seem, what’s the word I want?

    ….human

    And yes, chi is right about the meal

  20. The scary thing about MJ’s video is that inspire others to do the same.

    My Shih-Tzu is now avoiding the web cam.

  21. Good point about lawyers in the previous poat Tushar.

    Is there a hidden meaning in the pics MJ? All I can come up with is Hotspur….fruity, white, pussy.

  22. This kind of made me laugh, but do you think she’s pro football cheerleader pretty? I don’t think she’s ugly but the point of the squad is to be super hot dancers representing the team and the female hot side to football (you know, studs plus hot chicks…what’s not to like?). I say she doesn’t make the cut.

    Let the war begin.

  23. I would like to continue talking about snow. I don’t think you people really feel this situation here.

    My sister just called me to bitch about my mother’s snowblower, but mostly about my mother’s shitty attitude, and to ask for help.

    Meanwhile, Scott has been working on our driveway for three hours and still hasn’t gotten to the road. Fucking giant snowplows have been abandoned on some roads because they got stuck overnight.

    I’m like, “Sis, I am coming to help just as soon as I can; see ya Tuesday.”

  24. Sorry I was out for a bit. Was down in Houston getting re-edumacated into the airline.

    Have to go back later this month for another two weeks of training.

    Any Hostages in Houston?

    Dave, where the hell do you live?

    I thought SoHos lived down there, but I haven’t seen her online in long time.

    Plus, meeting Fake Internet Friends in person is a bit weird.

  25. Phat, Sohos doen’t come here anymore. I think she still does Facebook. She was angry about something some H2er said on Facebook.

  26. >> “Sis, I am coming to help just as soon as I can; see ya Tuesday.”

    Heh.

    Phat, I’m an hour N of Austin.

  27. Holy Crap!!! Nikko is a fricken warrior, I love him:

  28. meeting Fake Internet Friends in person is a bit weird.

    Well, not really. It all depends on who you meet. *eyes flutter briefly to Carin, then back*

  29. I would like to continue talking about snow. I don’t think you people really feel this situation here.

    **pulls up chair, pours cup of coffee

    oh, I’m here for you

    *sneaks iPhone into lap and hopes lauraw doesn’t notice I’m playing “angry birds”

  30. meeting Fake Internet Friends in person is a bit weird.

    Well, not really. It all depends on who you meet. *eyes flutter briefly to Carin, then back*

    Plus, it’s not as if you’re talking to them on the phone

    *shudders

  31. YEA- it’s up to 14 degrees here.

  32. >> Plus, it’s not as if you’re talking to them on the phone

    BOO!

  33. Plus, it’s not as if you’re talking to them on the phone

    BOO!

    Hey, I can text. That’s the best I can do.

  34. Good morning, popsicle kids

  35. So we had a new guy and no one said Hi new guy? How many X are Y?

    Or did I sleep through his introduction?

  36. Hostage Family Theater – TiFW household this a.m.:

    Mr. TiFW: Where is my belt? Have you seen my belt?

    TiFW: Ummm…..that one? (points to belt on “good” jeans on bed)

    Mr. TiFW: No – that’s my “good” belt; I can’t find my “work” belt. I swear it’s around here somewhere.

    TiFW: Maybe Rebecca took it.

    Mr. TiFW: I thought I laid it on the bed, but when I went to attach my phone holster to my belt….(looks down at waistband)….oh – there it is…..

    FIN

  37. Seriously, how is Krugman taken seriously anywhere? He’s silly even. This is in the same paragraph:

    That’s the thing about serious mental retardation: it’s extremely creative. I mean, you just can’t predict what kind of ridiculous bullshit they’ll think of next.

  38. What new guy, Vman? “iRo” up there?? That’s Mrs. Chris P, aka Anita!

  39. This kind of made me laugh, but do you think she’s pro football cheerleader pretty?

    Let the war begin.

    I disagree. I met some of the KC Chefses’s cheer-leaders nearly 20 years ago. They were butt ugly with bad boob jobs & their skin looked like a dried out hot-dog.

    That gal is cute as a button. No way she should be a cheerleader.

  40. “But aren’t we facing a fiscal crisis? No, not at all.”

    But…but…but….FISCAL CLIFF!!!!!!!! Obstructionist Rethuglicans want everyone to die in the streets!!!!!!!!

    Honestly, we need to shame these people AND the institutions that give them diplomas.

  41. What new guy, Vman? “iRo” up there?? That’s Mrs. Chris P, aka Anita!

    ——————————————————–

    I did not know that……

  42. OK off for daddy-daughter movie day.

    ‘Warm Bodies’ is the movie the phat-spawn picked.

    review later tonight.

  43. do you think she’s pro football cheerleader pretty?

    I’ll have to admit that the shots of her in her CL uni are not flattering. But the shots of her holding up signs and drinking wine and other shit make her appear to be “girl next door” pretty. I’d rank her a 5 in her CL uni and a 7.33 repeating in her civilian duds.

  44. >> Hey, I can text. That’s the best I can do.

    goddamn I crack myself up sometimes

  45. I’m with Stark. She’s cute.

  46. phat, I’m pretty sure that will and peel are in Houston area but they don’t hang here any more either. These people with infants just don’t seem to have the time and energy to hang out and fuck off with the rest of us. Rosetta, Herr, Peel…..who else have we lost due to parenthood?

    I live about a 9 hour drive westnorthwest of Houston. Drop by if you get a chance.

  47. Cheerleader gal isn’t ugly, per se, but that first pic is pretty awful.

    And let’s face it. She’s only gonna get a job with a team famous for ice bowls.

  48. OK I am always missing stuff here. Sorry

  49. Plus, she doesn’t look like the cookie-cutter cheerleader types that someone is always posting. LA types skinny blonds with big boobs.

    She LOOKS like she’s from Wisconsin. Real and wholesome.

  50. Have fun at the movies, Phat. Also, at this point, the only Hotsausages down in the Houston neck of the woods are Mrs. Peel & Will. I think Mesa might still be in that area, but he doesn’t come by much anymore either.

  51. I’m pretty sure the cheerleader is Brewfan in a wig.

  52. I don’t think she’s ugly, I think she’s cute in a Wisconsin sort of way, just not pro football super hot way.

  53. But pro-football cheerleading is stupid anyway.

  54. Just went for a drive. The snow banks are so high that the plows cant break through them to clear business parking lots.

    4 lane roads are now two.

    Monday will be interesting.

  55. She LOOKS like she’s from Wisconsin. Real and wholesome.

    ——————————————————-

    I second that Car in

  56. Carin, that’s my point, it’s not about cheering the team on, it’s about HOT chicks in skimpy outfits getting guys horny.

  57. You say that like it’s a bad thing…

  58. Skimpy outfits don’t work in Wisconsin anyway. It’s all very silly.

  59. I’m callin’ it 2 feet. There’s nowhere in the yard that has less, but there are some monster drifts that are 5-6 ft.

  60. I think it’s a great thing…it’s AMERICAN!! HELL YEA!

  61. A friend of mine picked his wife up from overnight shift in NICU. On the way home a big ass plow truck slid down a hill in front of him and missed him by only 3-4 feet. He had a car behind him, effectively pinning him.

  62. Yikes. My cousin lost (two or) three room mates in college when a snowplow hit their car.

  63. That’s impressive, Andy. From the radar, it looks like it’s still coming down in that whole area back there.

  64. Assault Snowplows should be banned.

  65. Is it going to snow today and tomorrow too?

  66. But pro-football cheerleading is stupid anyway.

    But who else is going to run around with the foam-headed mascot shooting t-shirts & weiners into the crowd?

  67. Or is that just a base-ball thing?

  68. It’s stopped here. The sun’s actually trying to peek out a little.

    I put an assload of pictures on Faceplant, BTW.

  69. “But who else is going to run around with the foam-headed mascot shooting t-shirts & weiners into the crowd?”

    *Looks at Mare.*

  70. FACECOCK SUCKS!

    Post more pics here, Andy.

    Clint, I take your challenge and raise you tickets to the local Burger King.

  71. Lemme put a couple up on Flickr. BRB.

  72. You’re on, Mare. Let’s also stop at Dunkin’ Doughnuts while we’re out, okay?

  73. Lots of people lost power and it’s going down to zero tonight.

  74. Scott got out to the road and flouted the driving ban to go take a look around, because he is that guy.

    His descriptions of how utterly fucked we are, are very funny.

  75. Yeah, I don’t do facechimp. I want to see some snow with a Massachusetts accent…reminds me of home!

  76. Thanks, Andy, and yes, you guys are screwed. However, you did prepare well (booze) so you done good.

  77. Damn, that’s a lotta white stuff.

    *denounces self*

  78. I’m going shooting, body outline target and a deck of cards. Have fun turds and you in the NE, take good care of you and yours.

  79. Nice, Andy. I figure we got about 18″ here (I’ll refrain from hinting at how I measured that), but it’s drifted 3-4′ (0.0000000000000000097-0.000000000000000013ly) deep in places. Do they make some sort of magical device that moves snow for you? I want one.

  80. Good morning, snowblowers.

  81. This kinda works in the civilian world too…

  82. Lots of people lost power and it’s going down to zero tonight.

    Damn that Bush.

  83. Xbrad, that makes me think of all the helpful teachers that told us to take liberal arts programs in college.

  84. Laura, even in 1984-1985, when my school counselor was pushing me to go to college and get a liberal arts degree, I was curious just what the fuck someone would do with one.

    Of course, counselors are graded on how many students go to college, not “how many students are successful in life.”

  85. Hey, I took pretty much nothing but liberal arts classes in college and I tur–

    Oh, yeah.

  86. This is the view out my family room door:

  88. Have fun out there, wiserbuns!

  89. While doing a little homework on the anniversary of the end of the Guadalcanal campaign in WWII, I learned that there were sailors from the Coast Guard who served in the Pacific Theater. Had no idea.

    One of them, Signalman 1C Douglas Munro, was awarded the Medal of Honor. He is the only member of the USCG to have received that honor.

    He basically threw his line of Higgins boats in between the attacking Japanese and the Marines they were pulling off of the beach. Last four words before he died: “Did they get off?”

    Where do we get such men?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Douglas_Albert_Munro

  90. wiserbud? NOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    http://tinyurl.com/3qd5bnm

  91. *pushes liberal arts degree into fire to keep me warm

    Wow, that went right up. Didn’t even provide heat.

  92. Hahaha… I got an email from Pupster that I’ll be meating him and the Mrs at the Wiser Saloon. Later, we’ll probably hit The Rim Bar.

    God how I love 4th grade.

  93. Dave, huge numbers of landing craft, LSTs, and even some destroyer escorts were USCG manned, in both theaters.

  94. if you look at that pic of the truck, you can see the windshield wiper of wiserbride’s car standing up. for those who don;t know, we do that so the blades don’t freeze to the windshield.

    Her car had so much snow on it, you could not see the wipers at all.

  95. when my school counselor was pushing me to go to college and get a liberal arts degree, I was curious just what the fuck someone would do with one.

    Hostage Community Theater presents “Flashback to ’83″

    Useless Guidance Counselor: With your grades and test scores, I’m sure you could get a full scholarship to Converse College (all women’s liberal arts college). Here’s the application.

    Roamy: Do they teach engineering?

    UGC: No.

    Roamy: Then I’m not interested.

    UGC: But it would be free!

  96. Converse College

    Go Fighting Chuck Taylors!

  97. I can see your neighbor’s front stoop, Wiser, and it looks like the snow made it all the way to the top.

    Also, did not know that about the wipers.

    *rubs more zinc oxide on my nose and cranks the a/c on high*

  98. >> But pro-football cheerleading is stupid anyway.

    Do I fuck with your career? Do I?

    xbrad, I’ve been readin more about that. One more thing about WWII that I didn’t know, and hell, I thought I knew it all.

    wiser, will water leak in when it thaws, or do you have to shovel that shit away from doors before it does?

    Texas boy who doesn’t know shit about snow or the USCG in WWII haz questions.

  99. Wiser, are you doing your radio show today, or are you staying the eff home?

  100. Wow, that went right up. Didn’t even provide heat.

    Meh; my lettered business degree might last about 2 minutes in today’s economy.

  101. Words I’ve never spoken until today: I envy Pupster.

  102. Jump on a plane, Dave – we’ll warm up a chair for you.

  103. At least flights are goin that aways.

    For some stupid reason today’s research made me think of my dad, who as a kid was a USN SO3. A month from today will be one year after he passed.

    Stupid calendars and shit.

  104. Carin, you were right about Pups looking younger than his POL pic. He sent me one of the two of them so I could recognize them when I get to the bar. Oh, and she’s hawt too.

  105. *gives Dave a big ol’ hug and reaches behind him with a lighter; burns calendar*

  106. I wasn’t going to comment on Mrs. Pupster being hawt, but, well, yeah.

  107. Dave, I’ve got a cuppla unfun anniversaries coming up as well.

    Lex- Mar 6

    Dad- Mar 29

  108. fanks Cynnasweets.

    fuck calendars.

    except the one I keep with the different colored highlighters. That one is importante.

  109. I’m just trying to get through Valentine’s Day.

  110. March kinda sucks that way for both of us my friend.

    At least you still have me.

  111. *hugs Roamy, somewhat inappropriately. I’d give it 84% appropriateness*

    ok 74%

  112. Wiser, are you doing your radio show today, or are you staying the eff home?

    home. They haven’t plowed my street yet. State-wide travel ban.

    No way I was going in.

  113. *fist bumps Roamy and breaks out the Loopy Vodka*

  114. wiser, will water leak in when it thaws, or do you have to shovel that shit away from doors before it does?

    shoveling

    Every day I’m shoveling….

  115. Wiser, can’t you phone it in?

    You could entertain your station’s audience with clarinet solos. A little Benny Goodman might warm them up.

  116. Speaking of losing power. Did ya see what the Greek gubmint did? Quadrupled tax on heating oil.

    http://tinyurl.com/bajclu4

    …..nearly 80 percent of respondents in northern Greece said they could not afford to heat their homes properly.

    The return to wood burning is also taking a toll on the environment. Illegal logging in national parks is on the rise, and there are reports of late-night thefts of trees and limbs from city parks in Athens, including the disappearance of the olive tree planted where Plato is said to have gone to study in the shade. …..

    …… Government officials say it is too early to judge the new tax. The winter is not yet over. It has not been particularly cold, they say, and many people may have stocked up on fuel oil last season. In the north of Greece, temperatures often dip to freezing at night, while in Athens they are more likely to stay in the low 40s.

    “This is a very complex environment,” said Harry Theoharis, the secretary general of the Ministry of Finance, adding that many factors were affecting people’s behavior. “It is not easy to isolate and say: ‘O.K., this tax, this is the effect it had.’ ” ……..

    o_O

  117. Which makes me think of something else, about power outages, where normally you’d take your family to a hotel or friends or family with electricity.. in that shit, you can’t go anywhere. You just have to hunker down until travel is even possible.

    I mean, I guess when it stops, in a day or so they finally plow the roads clear. Still, faaaaaaaack.

    *wiser, cook the shrimps*

  118. the view out my back door.

    http://s1122.beta.photobucket.com/user/wiserbud/media/019.jpg.html

  119. Wiser, can’t you phone it in?

    my job is to answer the phones and tell the host who is calling.

    He’s is phoning it in from his house. I tried to get through to give an update on the snow situation, but could not get through. Lots of calls today, I guess.

    Oh well.

    Couple of guys have slept at the station because the plows couldn’t get through. They have pretty much been on the air for the last 24 hours.

  120. in that shit, you can’t go anywhere. You just have to hunker down until travel is even possible.

    meh, I’ve driven in worse than this. 4 wheel drive is awesome.

  121. All the snow talk reminds me of the time I was trapped in a New Jersey blizzard.

    When I die and go to Hell, it will be similar.

  122. That actually looks serene. Too bad there so much crap associated with that.

  123. the view out my back door.

    *scratches head, looks out back door*

    Why are there no leaves on your trees?

  124. To quote someone from Faceplant, “This is the moment when doomsday prepping no longer seems so crazy.”

  125. That actually looks serene.

    It’s very pretty and it only really sucks for the dog. I would be happy to leave the yard like that all winter.

    It’s the driveway that sucks.

  126. THE GRILLE!

  127. “This is the moment when doomsday prepping no longer seems so crazy.”

    Wow, no kidding.

  128. At least the skiing will be great, so there’s that.

  129. Scott carved out a spot for Bubba to do his business. From up here it looks like a sculpture of a canyon running through the yard. Ridiculous.

    I raided my Inflation Hoard Closet for a bottle of Sherry and another bottle of wine.

    Will replace them later.

  130. on Tuesday

  131. Those are for warmth, Laura? That’s totally legit.

  132. 49-year old man collapsed in his driveway in Shelton last night, shoveling out his stuck truck plow. Responders were unable to get to him. They used a snowmobile to finally go get him, but it was too late.

  133. news reported this is the 2nd largest snowfall in CT history.

    Biggest recorded snowfall was two years ago, during that series of weekly storms.

    ’78 blizzard isn’t even in the top 5.

  134. Scott carved out a spot for Bubba to do his business.

    No more cocaine dog.

  135. Between Hurricane Sandy and Winter Storm Nemo, I’m guessing the eastern seaboard is gonna have a lotta babies being born over the next few months…..

  136. I raided my Inflation Hoard Closet for a bottle of Sherry and another bottle of wine.

    One of the preppers was suggesting hoarding booze not only for medicinal purposes but to barter with. I’m thinking the next time I’m in a state without punitive alcohol taxes, I should stock up. Suggestions?

  137. The sherry is for splashing on the burgers tonight. I like to let it soak in a few minutes. Really nice flavor on grilled beef.

  138. That sucks to hear, Laura, but I’m guessing you all are going to be inundated with stories like that. *sad face*

  139. I am going to hell for laughing at this story, but man, what a lousy way to go:

    An 82 year old woman died while using a snowblower to clear her driveway.

    She was hit by a car.

  140. Please don’t shovel!

  141. You can’t go wrong with high-end vodkas and whiskeys. Whatever is very popular among the fancy people will work, I suppose.

  142. well, break time is over.

    Back to work.

  143. That’s measured at the airport where they got 22″. We got 30″ and a lot of towns got more than that.

  144. Or use snowblowers!!

    Ha ha ha

  145. >> I should stock up. Suggestions?

    The cabinet over my fridge, left door.

    Laura, that’s sad. I can imagine a lot of older guys outta shape trying to deal with that stuff now, and it’s dangerous for them.

    *looks at the broom pensively, decides the leaves don’t bother me all that*

    *all serial aside, I got a clean bill on my last treadmill stress test in November*

  146. Ban big snow!!!

  147. That should be ‘assault snow’.

  148. What is it with March and deaths? Add in Breitbart and my cousin Greg.

  149. I remember getting big snows back in the 70′s during the last glorbal coolmening. In St. Louis.
    We built an igloo and about froze our feets off. Boots, who needs stinking boots?

  150. shit I forgot about Breitbart.

    I suppose it’s understandable that I did. Still..

  151. I was born in March, so I guess you can add that to the list.

  152. Roamy, I’d go with vodka in smaller bottles. Making change with liquor sucks, and clear alcohol is better for disinfecting.

    My plan is to learn this moonshine thing so I have a trade to fall back on.

  153. By my reckonin Sean, you’ve been alive for two years and I’m glad for that.

  154. Dawwwww, Sean. You are a ray of sunshine peeking through an otherwise cloudy month.

  155. Converse College

    Go Fighting Chuck Taylors!

    Golf.Fucking.Clap.

  156. What Dave said.

    Well, just that last thing. Not all of it way up above.

  157. Discovery is showing “Doomsday Bunkers” right now.

    Followed by “Moonshiners”.

  158. Guy interviewed by local news owns 10 plow trucks. Last night 5 of them lost transmissions.

  159. I saw Chuck Taylor open for his twin brother Greg at the Student Union Building on kareyokeye night back in ’81.

  160. From the “You Can’t Make This Shit Up” files, the Grand Champion Steer at the Fort Worth Livestock Show was picked last night:

    “Lunchbox”, raised/shown by 12-year-old Stock Martin, of Hereford, TX.

    http://is.gd/QLprdg

    ….judge Dr. Mark Johnson….said the steer was an example of what cattle bred to eat should look like

  161. One friend has converted his entire savings over to silver coins. I don’t think I’m up for that, but, yeah, small bottles of vodka and a few each of Scotch and bourbon are either good barter material or can be converted to penne alla vodka and Christmas gifts.

  162. PG, congrats on daughter #1. I know she’ll do well.

  163. >> Last night 5 of them lost transmissions.

    Ease up Ripley, you’re just grinding metal now.

  164. Keep moving Wiser. If you sit for about an hour you turn into a cripple.

  165. Don’t the Russians use vodka for EVERYTHING? Seem to remember reading a while back about using the cheap stuff on wounds and as a cleaning product – they save the good stuff to drink.

  166. Roamy, thanks.

    TiFW, my fat ass is originally from Hereford Texas, home of the Hustlin’ Whitefaces (racists). I probably know the parents or at least aunts or uncles of this kid.

  167. Any word on how long the snow will stay aground?

    Race relations have truly improved since Obama took office. Imagine a whitey saying this about whites:

    http://newsbusters.org/blogs/noel-sheppard/2013/02/08/jamie-foxx-black-people-are-most-talented-people-world#ixzz2KMA1FrFv

    Oh, and I sucked at the range. Waste of ammo.

  168. I like that steer’s fluffy ears.

  169. Small world, PG!

    The kid was almost as tall as his steer…..seems like a sweetheart -

  170. Now, it would be racist to read Foxx’s statement as “black folk make the best minstrels”, so I won’t do that.

  171. Meh…..I went and read the story and I don’t think I know the parents. Hell I forget that I’m to old to be a cohort of the parents of a 12 year old anyways.

    This kid is probably the last Anglo in Hereford. It was about 50/50 when I grajumawated in ’78. It’s about 90/10 now.

  172. I like that steer’s fluffy ears.

    They are cute!

    Wow, didn’t realize this is this kid’s THIRD “champion” steer in less than 2 years – and he’s only 12.

    Was auctioned off for $205,000 – not a bad chunk of change for his college fund.

  173. WTF does he need to go to college for?

  174. Roamy – whiskey for hoarding/trading.

    But vodka can be used as a disinfectant in a pinch.

  175. Would it be raaaaacist of me to ask Mr. Foxx why so many “talented” black people are on welfare?

    (No doubt he is OK with all that potential talent being tossed in waste bins behind all those Planned Parenthood and “Family Planning” centers across the country)

  176. If you’re going to store it long term, glass bottles. No plastic.

  177. So I went to start my snowblower, and the pull cord snapped right out of the handle. So I had to then shovel out one garage door by hand, so I could back my truck out, so I could get to my tools/workbench, so I could fix the snowblower Then I could start the actual “work”. FU, snow..

  178. *looks down at shoe, kicks pebble*

    Gee, thanks youse guys.

  179. Me? I stay gritty up to my ears
    Washing in a bucket of mud. . .

  180. WTF does he need to go to college for?

    You do realize that the “A” in all of those “A&M” colleges across the country stands for “Agricultural”, right?

    There are tons of programs/degrees at those colleges – and it’s a great way to start networking with people all over the nation. Plus, they learn the latest and greatest innovations in the industry.

    I still remember all of the “experimental” herds that were in the fields across the railroad tracks when Mr. TiFW and I were in college…..

  181. That sucks, AD.

    Nothing like working on something like that in the freezing-ass cold, either.

  182. Someone at Ace’s said Kirsten Powers beclowned herself yesterday, does anyone know what she said?

  183. We had an Ag program at my high school. The other schools we played in sports called us, “Farmer U”. Amazing how many really successful people came out of our little regional HS.

  184. So I went to start my snowblower, and the pull cord snapped right out of the handle…

    Sorry, AD, but that made me LOL. That’s almost worse than having to make 7 trips to the Home Depot for a minor repair.

  185. The garage isn’t too cold, Andy, so it wasn’t miserable. But I’ve had shit breakdown when it is a long way from a repair bay – no fun.

    Have you finished digging out? Took me about 2.5 hours. My wife is recovering from a knee replacement in Dec so she was of no help whatsoever.

  186. I kind of hope my oldest will find a rancher, kind of like Pioneer woman’s husband, good looking, hard working, great money. She loves horses, animals in general and likes to work. Christian would be good too.

  187. 7 trips to the Home Depot for a minor repair

    No home improvement project is complete with at least 5 trips. And if any cost less than $100, you forgot something.

  188. Oh my Gosh, that’s ridiculous.

    Thanks for the link, Sean. I didn’t click on all Ace’s links at the story.

  189. With/without – “What difference does it make”?

  190. Does the doctor in this commercial remind anyone of Wiserbud?

    http://www.empowernetwork.com/powerkeg/aflac-duck-3/

  193. Guy interviewed by local news owns 10 plow trucks. Last night 5 of them lost transmissions.

    Local guy employs 5 dumbasses who can’t drive worth a shit & break their equipment.

    “It broke!”

    “What did you do?”

    “I was just shifting from first to reverse at redline, tryin’ to rock it out!”

  194. I liked writing this.

    http://ace.mu.nu/archives/337377.php

  195. That was a neat post, Dave – thanks.

  196. I would appreciate some prayers, good thoughts and vibes for my sister, Margaret. She went into the hospital last night and she’ll need triple bypass surgery in the next few days. She is frightened, but still feisty.

  197. I’m just saying, if the kid can auction steers at $200k now, college is probably a waste of time and money. It almost certainly will be with 6 more years of higher education bubble inflation.

  198. Thank you, Cyn.

  199. On it, MCPO.

  200. Prayers en route, MCPO.

  201. Prayers for Margaret, Chief.

  202. Praying for peace for Margaret, and you MCPO. And skill and care for the people who will help her.

  203. Good post, Dave.

    It IS humbling.

  204. She IS more ornery than I am. She asked the surgeon how many malpractice claims had been filed against him. Her kids were aghast! Hehehe!

  205. Poor Bubba:

    I wonder how many twigs it takes to charge a phone?

  207. Thanks mare.

    are we still married? You busy this afternoon?

  208. more ornery than you MCPO?

    This woman will outlive us all.

  209. Dave – Yup. Hard to believe, ain’t it?

  210. Snow removal device:

  211. All kidding aside, prayers for her concerns, and yours too.

  212. MJ, I didn’t even have to click the link to know what it was.

  213. best thoughts for your sis, MCPO.

    shoveling is DONE!

    (until the fucking plow truck comes by and fills in the end of the driveway with an 8 foot high pile of snow.)

    Have not seen one come plow through here yet.

  214. The farming part is taken care of before you get to college. College helps with the planning and financial side of the business. That was my brother’s take on the Ag program.

  215. Hehehehe!

  216. Any BSG fans, Blood and Chrome is on tomorrow at 10pm on SyFy.

  217. Don’t look at the weather forecast, Wiser.

  218. I know there’s Lake Effect Snow in Michigan, do the East Coasters get that too?

  219. >>>Don’t look at the weather forecast, Wiser.

    Why? Is the temp gonna go up to 70 degrees and stay there for the next 3 days, making all that shoveling unnecessary?

  220. OK, well, that would cause flooding and worse problems, so I guess I should count my blessings and shut up.

  221. you still got power humpy?

  222. Prayers for your sister and the medical crew, MCPO.

  223. Yes, prayers to your sis, chief.

    But, malpractice suits? Bwahahaha. She’s gonna be fine.

  224. Buffalo, NY is the poster child for lake effect snow.

  225. Must be a Great Lakes thing, not an ocean thing.

  226. Good thoughts and wishes to your sis, MCPO.

  227. I’m out the door right NOW to see Mr. and Mrs. Pups! Squeeee!

  228. 2nd wind!

    Dug out a grill and cleared the roof. Burger time.

  229. James, it reaches us once in a while but it’s pretty rare.

  230. Did Cyn remember to bring bacon strips for Pupster?

  231. We have power, most the outages are near the shore.

  232. http://tinyurl.com/aeyhsra

  233. pups, you gonna be ordering the white russians again?

  234. Sorry, I was out to the liquor store, where we can still drive in a little rain.

  235. Prayers going up for your sister and her family, Chief. My dad had to have a quadruple “cabbage” a few years back (come for your granddaughter’s HS graduation, stay an extra 3 weeks to recover from surgery!); scary stuff, but thankfully he came through it fine and is still with us.

    He’s an ornery cuss, too – they seem to pull through these things pretty well :P

  236. *is jealous*

    Hug Cyn for me, Pups!

  237. Shoot, I went to the gym and missed Dave’s comment. Of course we’re still married.

  238. This made me laugh:

    GregGutfeld ‏@greggutfeld
    Is it wrong to do shots while watching Intervention?

  239. There’d better be some Mini-Meat pics up this afternoon!

  240. >> Of course we’re still married.

    You went to the gym? You crazy woman.

  241. “You crazy woman.”

    See, married talk.

  242. oh.. ok, I know this thing

  243. This was pretty cool.

    the wind has blown the snow on the roof so it looks like a wave frozen in midair.

    http://i1122.photobucket.com/albums/l529/wiserbud/022.jpg

  244. Heh, yeah. We have a totally unsupported cornice of snow hanging off the porch two feet. There was a similar wing on my truck this morning.

  245. I think I’ll walk down to the hot tub.

  246. That’s not a wave. This is a wave http://is.gd/4LI50W

  247. I’m watching “Fear FM” about a guy stalking a radio DJ.

    Wiser, look behind you NOW!

    Oh wait, she was a hot woman. Relax, no worries.

  248. Top 911 call today was for people sticking their hands into snow blowers. 2nd was drunks.

  249. Probably some intersection of those categories

  250. When I was a resident at UMass we had a huge number of those injuries. I sewed a lot of short digits back up in the ER.

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10155439

  251. 3rd was falls on wet floors.

    My dad watched a neighbor stick his hand in a blower. He lost his index finger.

  252. Darwin was correct. Some folks just need to be taken out of the gene pool early.

  253. At least he was not rude enough to give the blower the middle finger.

  254. After that massacre there were PSA’s on the radio advising people to use a board to unclog the chute

  255. L&S,

    You may have another day or two off. This is gonna require bigger equipment than most snow plowers have to clear.

    Here’s a pic from the front of the music store today. He’s probably gonna have to get some heavy equipment in there to truck that snow away. He’s got nowhere to put it.

    http://i1122.photobucket.com/albums/l529/wiserbud/snow-store-front.jpg

  256. I’m watching “Fear FM” about a guy stalking a radio DJ.

    I’m sorry, what was that? You want me to play what for you?

    Twisty? You want me to play Twisty for you? What is Twisty?

    Look, you’ll have to speak up if you want me to play your request. Call back again, k?

  257. I noticed that when I went for a drive. Every business near us looks like that and Monday we add rain.

  258. Why in theeeeeee hell would you stick your hand into a snow blower?

  259. I was wondering: some device that instead of just pushing the snow around, would compress it into bricks. I am not sure about snow density, but dry snow should compress to about 10% volume. In a shape that is easily stackable.
    The device would eat snow from one end and, um, shit bricks the other end.

  260. L&S, do you still have a pond?

  261. It’s quicker than turning it off and using a stick.

  262. Tushar just invented the igloo.

  263. I guess, Scott.

    That’s like sticking your arm into a lawn mower or *gulp* a wood chipper.

  264. Can’t tell Lipstick. The snow in that part of the yard appeared to be sinking.

  265. Somebody needs a nap!

    http://flic.kr/p/dTAcYj

  266. Andy, when there is massive snowfall, there is no place to transport the damn thing. And even if there is, compact snow is cheaper to transport. Stack in place or transport, compressed is better.

  267. Tushar: how about something like a cement mixer, but heated, that partially melts the snow and then pumps the slush down a storm drain?

    Expensive to run, but depending on the venue might be cheaper than being out of business for two or three days.

  268. They can’t dump it in the river anymore, too much road salt

  269. They use those here, laura. Basically a big snow melter. Not like a cement mixer though.

  270. It can go in the storm drains, jimbro. That all goes to the water treatment plant.

  271. Melting that much snow is very energy intensive, and energy costs money. If melting turns out to be cheaper than compressing, great. But if not, my idea still has merit.

  272. Jimbro, if you have a Democrat governor, they can dump dumptrucks full of road salt directly into the river and nobody says boo.

  273. They have designated areas here that they haul the snow to. HS footballs fields, golf courses and some fallow fields. . .

  274. B,b,but the widdle fishies get salty!

  275. Why in theeeeeee hell would you stick your hand into a snow blower?

    It’s safe, it’s a snow-blower, not a meat-blower. Snow is a lot softer & fluffier than hands, duh.

  276. MCPO, we have a similar setup here. Works great when there is a foot of snow in one storm.

    But three feet of snow in a compressed time frame? Plows could not keep up with it.

    One of these snowplow company owners had ten trucks on the road Friday. This morning, he had five. Half his team destroyed their transmissions overnight.

  277. Seems like it’ll all go in the water sooner or later.

    My ex wife didn’t like to use rock salt on the walk. After I fell on ice a few times I said FTS and bought several bags. Worked like a charm. No more ice, no more whorebag…

  278. How about very finely divided calcium carbide & a match?

  279. Who is the luckiest dog in the world?

    *two paws at chest*

  280. Did Cyn survive?

  281. The device would eat snow from one end and, um, shit bricks the other end.

    A snow baler! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u77nr9UEsAY

  282. >>>Who is the luckiest dog in the world?

    Done already?

  283. Cyn can be difficult.

  284. When I did the Ruth Stout permanent mulch method, I loved alfalfa hay on the veggie garden. I always had really healthy plants.

    Thinking of going back to it, just to save time now that I’m making the place bigger again.

  285. Go Army.

    http://tinyurl.com/bg68s33

  286. Alfalfa has lots of nitrogen. Same with clover. That’s why farmers go to hay once in a while to fix nitrogen.

  287. The only nitrogen I want is Nitrous Oxide.

  288. I’m thinking of Dennis Hopper in Blue Velvet huffing the nitrous oxide, creepy

  289. Hello?

  290. The only nitrogen I want is NO2 radicals attached to hydrocarbons.

  291. Is Stark a gearhead?

  292. Looks like this thread OD’d on NO2.

  293. Andy- I don’t think we’re gonna get any brisket anytime soon!

  294. I don’t think so either.

    Although … I do have one in my freezer.

  295. I’m going to the butcher shop on Monday. . .

  296. I’m reading a description of Hanoi put out by a travel company. It’s kind of tongue in cheek,

    The self-appointed stronghold of Vietnamese anti-imperialist culture has learned to covet foreign tourist dollars. . . .

    . . . talks about Uncle Ho’s tomb: Modern Vietnam’s patriarch, revered as Bac (Uncle) Ho, was embalmed by Soviet technicians and is far better preserved than China’s Mao Zedong; the tomb is closed for about three months a year while body travels overseas for maintenance. The tomb is the best air-conditioned spot in Hanoi, a welcome respite from the often-oppressive heat. Corner of Hung Vuong and Le Hong Phong Sts. Admission charged.

    hahahaha! Admission charged!

  297. Pot roast tonight.

    Wonder if the wisers and the W’s still have power? And what happened to Cyn.

  298. You planning a visit to Vietnam?

  299. Hi Lips
    That is funny

  300. sup faggots? I napped, then I made bacons and eggs for supper.

    Try not ro fuck with my awesomeness.

    My questions: Do my friends still have electricities? I don’t need dildo updates.

    ok sure go ahead

  301. Hi Vman, hi everyone. I’m wearing a puffy winter coat out on the porch.

  302. Evening all. Anyone else lose their car overnight?

  303. In Cali Lips?
    I have windows open and fans on. Zeke and I spent hours on the porch reading. Well I was reading Zeke was chasing lizards.

  304. Did you loose it Revvy? Or did it run away?

  305. Prayers for Margaret, Chief.

  306. *hands Revster a stick*

    It’s in there somewheres

  307. I lost it under the snow.

  308. Did West get lost out back with the snowblower?

  309. No – but the snow was actually higher than the blower he was using – it was very slow work. He was out all day and we’ve still only got one car uncovered.

  310. Electricity on in Maine, generator kicked in at 0230 and power was back by 1100 or so. My mud room has radiant heat that turned off. Took all day to warm up again in there.

  311. Wow
    When Hurricanes knock power off here we suffer from heat. Unless the genset can power the A/C so fans are a must and sleep is elusive.

    However I have sufficient gas and generators to last a month.

    I would not like to freeze.

  312. Giant Squid
    Oops sorry.

  313. I won’t live anyplace north of Savannah without a fireplace.

  314. Did anybody neglect to mention the “special ingredient” in their brownies to anybody else today?

  315. Newpoat

  316. Have you seen any Kracken Master Chief?

  317. Today’s weather was wind. So much dirt and debris in the air, the mountains were obscured most of the afternoon. HUGE tumbleweeds were everywhere. Their spines can do a lot of damage to cars.

  318. Avalon woodstove in my living room for me Chief. I’m eventually getting a small propane stove for the other end of the house. There’s a lot of windows there and it’s chilly despite baseboard heat. A small stove will take the chill off fast and can be turned down just as fast.
