  1. Well, this is stupid.

  2. Lawrence O’Donnell is a cunt.

  3. But we’re here anyway, MJ.

    I wonder what that means.

  4. Nobel worthy!

  5. MJ gets a participation ribbon.

    And a juicebox and a cookie.

    GOOD JOB MJ!

  6. THE COFFEE MACHINE IS NOT WORKING

  7. *calls police*

  8. I have a full pot, Laura.

    I’ll share.

  9. this poat smells faggity

  12. Lawrence O’Donnell is a racist. ‘Nuff said.

    If white people are hispanic and vice versa, and ‘punks’ sounds like a racial slur, I’m pretty sure the hood fits nicely.

  13. *dons flight suit, fills 32 ounce thermos with coffee and closes lid tightly, grabs extra coffee maker from supply room, dashes out to runway, orders jet to scramble*

  14. I just don’t understand how a prick like he is gets to be his age without a major tune up.

  15. There’s this thing in a coffee pot, called a “thermal relay”. It’s really just a fuse, a safety device.

    The manufacturers often failed to see the unsafetyness in a coffee pot that does not work.

  16. No coffee or chances of winning that lottery, you choose:

  17. The light goes on. How come it’s on but it’s not boiling water?

    I emailed Scott (why am I always alone when these disasters happen?) and he said to smack it around a little.

    He has NO IDEA.

  18. I’M FREAKING OUT PEOPLE

  19. he said to smack it around a little.

    That’s what I do when Mrs MJ forgets to make the coffee.

  20. Cowboy coffee. Git ‘er done.

  21. I know this situation is dire, but let’s all just be thankful that this didn’t happen on Tuesday.

  25. Vodka-bottle-in-vagina post update.

  26. A simple, little 12 cent fuse.

  27. Scott is here with a new machine.
    He must have FLOWN.

    *calls Cyn, cancels scrambling jets*

  28. Shoulda wrapped that bottle in chicken skin.

  29. I guess I’ll just have to drink this pot all by myself.

    I was willing to share, just so you know.

  30. Any woman with the name Mishelle is pretty much destined to find herself in a situation where putting a bottle of vodka in her poontang sounds like a good idea.

  31. I just went online and ordered an emergency backup Krups coffee machine.

    I buy coffee stuff, including Lavazza Italian beans, here:

    http://www.wholelattelove.com/index.cfm

  32. Percolators. That’s where it’s at folks.

  33. It’s actually been bugging me for awhile that if the built-in Miele machine in the kitchen failed, I would be SOL and a three-county killing spree could result. Laura has inspired me to prevent this.

  34. *puts emergency carafe of coffee in my pootang just to be safe.

  35. Lavazza is served by a lot of restaurants around here. Omar too IIRC.

  36. We have the backup percolator for just such instances, and camping, but really in case of SMOD.

    Or if the Mayans stop by, they always bring coffee.

  37. I have a percolator that I can put on the stove in case my pot $hits the bed.

    A gal cannot be too prepared.

  38. The Krups machine I bought is only $179, with free shipping. It accepts beans and grinds them, which is a good thing because I don’t have ground coffee in the house.

  39. My son introduced us to Lavazza beans at a cafe/bakery in Boston.

  40. Our machine at home grinds the beans for you but it is such a pain in the ass to take apart and clean every time that we usually use ground coffee and bypass the grinder anyway.

    I do like the thermos pot though. Never burns, stays hot for hours.

  41. I wonder what kind of back up shit Sandra Fluke has?

    Extra mascara? Travel toothbrush? Spare crotchless panties? Batteries?

  42. Does this Krups machine use electricity?

    4 words: dooms day prep pers

    when it comes to coffee you can never be too prepared.

  43. That visit to the hip cafe in Boston was actually when I was on the way to CT in order to view Wiserbud’s daughter in her white bikini.

  44. MJ, in the event of the zombie apocalypse, I have an old wooden hand coffee grinder. I can make a fire and boil water. I’ll be OK if the zombies leave me alone for half an hour.

  45. Crisis averted.

    Yay, Scott.

  46. Actually, even if the zombies don’t leave me alone, I can probably do some multitasking by making a fire on the patio and shooting my Mossberg with buckshot at the same time.

  47. It seems like scott is kind of sweet on laura. Given their avatars, they’d make a loverly couple.

  48. I drink a lot of coffee, lots.

    I can’t handle Lavazza. I think there is speed in it.

  49. Please do me a favor.

  50. Mr Coffee at Walmart $17.00.

    They actually had a 12 pot coffee brewer for $8.79. A coffee pot for the price of 2 gallons of gas!

    I didn’t want to push my luck.

  51. Zombie Schmomby it is hurricanes ya gotta worry about. A drip maker still drips if you boil the water and pour it in. But grinding w/o electricity is the trick.

  52. Vmax, pay attention. I said that I have a hand grinder. And we don’t have hurricanes in Dallas. It’s the twisters you gotta worry about.

  53. I have a grinder, but it is separate from my coffee maker.

    I *never* buy ground coffee.

    Rookie mistake.

  54. Ground coffee, keep it in the freezer, good enough.

    Coffee purists, pshaw

  55. I remember, when I was a kid, that my maternal grandmother did not use any kind of coffee maker. She just boiled a pot of water and threw the grounds in and let it boil for awhile. Then she would let the grounds settle for a couple of minutes, and pour coffee out of the pot.

    Maybe that’s some kind of Swedish thing.

  56. I hear you Bat Boy, I would rather hurricanes than twisters any time. Prepare for the biggest threat. With all the guns in Texas you’d be lucky to get to shoot any zombies.

  57. Yeah, I recognize a really good cup of coffee but I don’t fetishize it.

    *bumps fists with Jay*

  58. My coffee maker is controlled by a computer chip, which tells me when it needs water, beans, descaling, emptying of the waste bin, or cleaning.

    That’s why I feel vulnerable.

    Worst case scenario — I can beat some beans with a sledge hammer on the garage floor and eat the pulp.

  59. Ground coffee, keep it in the freezer, good enough.

    What kind of hoi palloi have I invited to my home?

  60. I buy ground coffee for the machine, and ground cocoa for my french press. I only have the press because I tried doing cocoa in the coffee machine, and it was a no go.

  61. 1 match – free
    1 propane camp stove – $30
    1 camp coffee pot – $10
    1 mini bag of coffee $0.69

    1 cup emergency joe – priceless

  66. What kind of hoi palloi have I invited to my home?

    No shit. Kinda scary to think about socializing with people who buy ground coffee.

  67. Maybe we can now see Scott on that People of Wal-Mart website.

  68. I’ll bet scott can brew coffee without power.

    He could probably grind it, too.

  69. For the coffee purists:

    If you take a dump on my minivan, J’ames, I’m gonna sic the chickens on you.

    o shit. Kinda scary to think about socializing with people who buy ground coffee.

    We’re reaching across the isle, Michael.

  71. I started grinding my beans back when ground coffee meant Folgers and what not. Or that overpriced stuff you grind at the grocery store.

    My mil buys a ground coffee that I find good, but it’s more expensive than my beans.

  72. Ga. I’ve got to run errands. Do not want.

  73. I prepare James. Last time we lost power we were ready http://is.gd/gYMZSX

    *puts emergency carafe of coffee in my pootang just to be safe.*

    now you are just teasing!

  76. My response to a liberal friend who is applauding EPA’s new restrictions on power generation. BTW, his rationale is, “I want my grandchildren to be able to breathe.”

    Andy – Serious question: Until carbon-trapping, solar and wind technology becomes affordable and dependable, what do we use to generate power?
    BTW, according to the EPA, levels of all major air pollution contaminants (ozone, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, particulate matter and lead) are down significantly since 1970; carbon monoxide levels alone dropped by more than 70 percent. Finally, China has more coal-fired plants than the US and India combined (and are building more each year). Giving the prevailing winds, where do you think their emissions end up?

  77. For now, natural gas is still legal. It sometimes explodes, but that’s okay because there’s less CO2.

  78. >> BTW, his rationale is, “I want my grandchildren to be able to breathe.”

    Is your friend related to Joe Biden?

    I mean, seriously, as you point out our air is cleaner than it has been since the beginning of the industrial revolution.

    And the rule isn’t even based on pollutant emissions anyway. It’s about CO2 and global warming bullshit.

    CO2 = Plant Food, Not Pollutant.

  79. What kind of hoi palloi have I invited to my home?

    My husband and I will be sleeping in a van in your driveway. Draw your conclusions.

  80. I wonder how Sean feels about Biden thanking Dr. Pepper in that speech.

  81. My husband and I will be sleeping in a van in your driveway. Draw your conclusions.

    I’m so tickled you’re both coming, I can’t even make a snide remark. DANGIT.

    There *is* a camper too. And either my kids won’t be here, or they can camp together in one room. That leaves two rooms for guests.

    And the pop-up. Which would be more comfortable than a van, I’m thinking.

  92. Heh Thank you Master Chief.

  93. I like kicking Joe Biden when he’s down as much as the next guy, but the whole Dr. Pepper thingy, eh.

    Dr. Paper is an odd name,and saying it to myself, it just doesn’t roll off the tongue. And he caught himself immediately.

    Shit happens.

  94. Yeah, misspoke, agreed. I do it too.

    But if Palin or Bush had done it?

  95. Kenny Rodgers Jackass is a hilarious, pants wetting classic!

  96. J’ames, that’s true. But Biden also give sooooooo many other gaffes that more clearly illustrate his “keen intellect” that other than a quick chuckle, the Dr. Pepper incident doesn’t do much for me.

  97. I like Dr. Pepper.

  98. From G-Mo’s link on 100% taxation.

    a comment –

    …”Where do profits come from? It’s a simple question. They ultimately come from cheating others out of the fruits of their work. …”

    Wants a ‘society of producers’. Someone is extremely ignint and needs a foot up it’s ass.

  99. I might be related to it.

  100. Another gem from the same twat –

    “Let’s look at the programme of the Parti de Gauche.

    1.) Revise the European Austerity Budget written into the Treaty of Lisbon.
    2.) Raise the SMIC to 1700 euro.
    3.) Tax the Rich 100% over a salary of 360,000
    4.) End the Presidental Monarchy of the VI Republic.

    These are radical, but – from the perspective of the true wealth-creators in this society, the low-paid, the poor – entirely reasonable and necessary measures to restore the dignity of working people in France.

    ——————————

    I am low paid (I made that choice) and work with low-paid and the poor. Most can give a shit less and produce next to nothing. Yeah, let Walmart share their billions in profits with them so they can slack even more.

  112. On paydays at work, they will allow you to wear pink shirts in exchange for a dollar. It used to be given to Komen.

  123. I wasn’t an anchorman funny, but is it “Old School”- the one where they turn their house into a fraternity?

    Will Ferrell running down the street naked cracked me up. And in the car.

  124. I liked Anchorman, but I’m predicting an epic failure for the sequel.

    Think Caddyshack vs. Caddyshack 2.

    It was a fucking revelation to me.

    I don’t know if he was a regular or re-occurring character or anything. MY SUM TOTAL of that show was the 3 min I watched last night.

    Someone brought up Caddyshack and it made me think of it.

  162. MCPO, while the EPA is the most visibly egregious of the offending federal agencies, they’re far from the only one. The Congress has for far, far too long ceded to the agencies power to regulate with virtually no oversight, to the point of many agencies writing what are de facto criminal statutes, never authorized by Congress.

    I heard Romney blather on today about how we need to have cars with high fuel efficiency and more people need to be driving this or that type of car (NOT YOUR JOB, ASSHOLE). After I stopped yelling in the car, I wondered who this dope (Romney) could possibly pick that would make me run (sober) to the voting booth.

  178. Because he is mavericky and will fight fight fight.

  179. HA! Sean, I just got done reading that. Is Obama as stupid as we think he is? Does he know Blacks kill more Blacks than “white” Hispanics do and there is quite a bit of Black on White crime also?

  180. I’m trying to ignore scott’s McCain comment because it makes me wonder just how poorly Romney COULD choose.

    Like I said before, if you pray, start now.

  181. Lieberman is available.

  182. CAFE standards were put in place in 1975 in response an oil embargo. Are we still under embargo?

    Nothing the government does is temporary. Sigh.

    Of course he does, Mare.

    ..what did you clowns learn yesterday other than gore is not deed?…

    Shall I reply?

  199. Please, Beasn!!!

  200. After reading Canseco’s tweets I understand what twitter is for…..you routinely say crap in 140 characters or less that establishes your idiocy in a public forum.

  201. done

  202. Beasn, can you post it here?

  203. @josecanseco…that your ‘roid shrunken balls got sucked into your empty cranial cavity and have taken over.

  204. I think I’m gonna write-in Canseco for President.

    Suuuuperrrrr-Geeeneeeous

  205. HA! Beasnsnsnsnsns!!!!

  206. Went to pick up some pig pellets at the pet store. They had six baby male guinea pigs that wanted me to love them and take them home. One gave me the stink eye and one was an agouti.

    I had to run out of there.

  207. hi stoopidz

  208. Heya Count

  209. Hi Cyn, you look fetching.

  210. Hi count

  211. I’ve been working on a book for a while now and tomorrow I’m having breakfast with a legendary detective from Houston. He’s worked the killing fields here forever. His father was also a detective and was the lead detective in “the candy man” case. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dean_Corll Pretty crazy shit.

  212. Awww, thanks MJ.

    You really think so? You’re so sweet.

  213. Interesting Count.

  214. Very cool, Count. What’s it about and how close are you to getting it published?

  215. Does everyone brush their teeth before going to a dental cleaning appointment?

    *noshes on garlic and parmesan flavored popcorn*

    It must be like a house cleaning thing before the housecleaners come over.

  216. The dog gets shot at the end.

  217. I brush my teeth at the dentist for maximum results.

  218. DAMMIT HOTSPUR! No Spoilers!

  219. Future Hostage, and follow that kid!!!

  220. I brush and floss and rinse with mouthwash and then pray, Cyn.

    *smooches on Dave*

  221. It’s about 2 teenage girls that went missing after having hitch hiked to the coast to go surfing. They were later found nude and shot in the head floating in the back of the lake where we live. Wrong guy went to prison for it cause he was banging the wife of the chief of police at the time. The small town crooked chief of police later went to prison with the asst. chief for robbing banks across Texas. The guy that did it is sitting in prison for shooting a Marine on leave that approached him because he parked on the side of the road, got out of his car where kids were playing whipped out his cock and started rubbing one out. That perv. owned a surf shop in galveston where the girls hung out. He’s still in prison but is actually up for parole soon. The wrong guy that got thrown in prison died in prison after he won his appeal but he hadn’t gotten out yet.
    WAAAAYYY crazy story that’s stranger than fiction. I’m still a ways off I just have lots of notes and piecing it together. But I’ve met with some of the girls friends and family already.

  222. That’s probably the best way, Dave. When the boys were little and i’d pick them up from school for a cleaning, i’d make them brush in the car ride over. Little kid breath is the worst!

  223. That kids too smart to be a hostage Aggie

  224. I eat a bag of Oreos before my dental cleanings. At what they charge, I want ’em to earn it!

  225. Does everyone brush their teeth before going to a dental cleaning appointment?

    Nah, it’s consideration for those who have to breathe near the gaping maw. Same for washing your hiney before seeing a Dr.

  226. Amazing story. A few years after you’re published, you’ll probably get on that program they show at 2 am on A & E, “Murder By The Book”. It’s actually a cool program.

  227. *subscribes to MCPO’s newsletter*

  228. It appears that Rosetta’s little Henry butt-dialed me this morning.

    Fortunately the diaper held.

  229. Did you hear any thunder, Andy?

  230. Nope, just papers rustling.

  231. Alicia Silverstone should have her head examined!

  232. Oh, hey, we’re about to go to this charity gala planning thing at Curt Schilling’s house.

  239. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH TIF

  240. Alicia Silverstone should examine my head. IYKWIMAITTYD

  241. Found that over at Weasel Zippers, Count – had to pass it along!

    Sounds like a really interesting book you’re putting together; silly me – when you said “Candy Man Murderer”, I was thinking about the guy who poisoned his kids’ Pixy Stix; I had completely forgotten about that other case.

    Of course, I was only 13 when he got caught, so I probably wasn’t paying as much attention back then – the Pixy Stix thing happened just a few miles from where we lived (and my Dad was always a conspiracy nut about Halloween candy – that case DIDN’T HELP….).

  242. I remember the pixie stick hell guy. Do they even make those anymore?

  243. I had a typing teacher in highschool that had breath like a dog shit in her mouth daily. And she smoked.
    I never wanted help in typing class after the introduction to her lipshitz. If her lipshitz, what’s her asshole do?

  244. I’ve been working on a book for a while now and tomorrow I’m having breakfast with a legendary detective from Houston. He’s worked the killing fields here forever.

    1) You should move to someplace where they don’t have any of those. That’s pretty fucked up man.

    2) If someone just posted cameras all over those fields, there would be no need for detectives to work them over for clues afterwards.

  245. whittle hits it out of the park with this one.

  246. I mean, jeez. Walmart’s parking lot is bristling with surveillance, but the “Killing Fields?” Oh, no, no need to put a monitor out there. I’m sure it will be fine.
    Just some nice peaceful pastures for murderin’. We’ll send a guy to check it out every couple weeks and piece bodies together.

  247. the killing fields have been uneventful for years now and they’ve mostly been developed into subdivisions these days. But 70’s-90’s girls were found out there regularly. many of them lined up facing the same way spread apart and there were trails between the bodies. Like some creep that killed them and put them there would walk from one to the other regularly.

  248. Count, sounds like you have a series of books in your home town.

  249. Criminy, I thought it was a figurative term, not a literal area of land!

  250. Awesome link Count. I hope that leaves a mark.

  251. real place, it’s not one of our assets as a community but they recently made a movie about it here’s the trailer

  252. I need a ruling on this, where is Wiserbud?

    Give it 30 something seconds http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqymcJRSbxI&feature=player_embedded#!

  253. Count, my inlaws live in that area, and told me the stories. For a long time, I never went to Texas City.

  254. Huh. The Candy Man (1970-73) ended up in Pasadena, TX, and the Pixy Stix case (1974) was in Deer Park, TX; both within 10 minutes of the house we lived in.

    I’m amazed my father didn’t move us; it explains why he was uber-vigilant with us at that time in our lives, though…..

  300. So the thing I was at at the Schillings’ tonight was related to an Aspergers’ program that their son and my daughter attend. It’s always interesting getting a bunch of autism spectrum parents together, as you can see that the kids really didn’t fall too far from the tree … they just fell awkwardly.

    It was funny talking with this guy about how his son can’t stand for someone he’s competing against to lose.

  301. G’mo, that’s the most widely accepted answer, but you might want to check out the independent nation of Sealand.

  302. Andy – Bloody sock!!

  303. Ah, yes. Sealand. A member of the “Bullshit Countries Started By Loons” bloc.

  304. Unrecognized. No. Count.

    Although I am now thinking about moving there.

  305. Nevertheless, I think the Vatican-Sealand discussion proves Oso’s point, you guys are freaks.

    At least I think thats what she said.

  306. as you can see that the kids really didn’t fall too far from the tree … they just fell awkwardly.

    How do you mean?

  307. I remember the bloody sock game. It was teh awesome.

    So tonight as the thing was winding down, Curt had kind of wandered off and was hanging with his kids. He came back as we were making our way to the door (remember, the Mrs. is kind of a rock star in this crowd, too) and he was wearing a t-shirt that said “God bless our troops” on the front and had a big bullseye over Bin Laden’s name with the date he was whacked on the back. Suck it, MA libs!

  308. I was thinking I could be the “cute” one not the “smart” one for a change. G Mo’s comment works too.

  309. I would like Schilling except for the whole Phillies/Red Sox thing.

  310. I mean: (i) the parents exhibit a lot of the social deficits the kids do and (ii) the parents tend to be drawn to certain professions – doctors, CPAs, lawyers, engineers, etc. that benefit from ordered thinking that the kids take to the extreme.

    I joke with the Mrs. that if I’d have married a Waffle House waitress instead of another CPA, our genes wouldn’t have combined like that. Plus, employee discount at the Waffle House.

    This guy (Borat’s cousin) has a theory about this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon_Baron-Cohen

  344. Cyn, all is calm on FB. I just get protective about Cathy. Andy, we just bought a Coleman heater for camping today. Already have the LED lantern.

  345. She’s no Cyn, Vmax.

    And she’s got a large boyfriend.

    Whom, I gotta admit, was a bit taken aback when I saw Fuzz at the cemetery. I walked up, put my arm around her, said, man, it’s been years, but I remember a nigh when it was you, me, a lot of booze and an ewok.

    It took her a bit to realize I was talking about a meetup we went to with PJ.

  346. I have procured a divinely balanced mixture of old-fashioned shoe polish from 1942, xylol, and jenkem this evening and am of a mind to rant.

    We get so frustrated with leftists. We try to tell them how their utopia fantasy is a lie, how it doesn’t work, and point to previous leftist regimes that have all collapsed in the same way, toward tyranny.

    It’s so frustrating how they always say, ‘this time it will work, if I am in charge.’ It’s like they aren’t even listening. Well, they’re not.

    The Lefty Utopia Fantasy- indeed, all of Leftism- is merely the part where leftists lie to themselves about their true intentions.

    The whole thing from start to finish is just a paint job on the utterly natural urge toward the standard theft and power-hunger that characterizes most of human history.

    In olden, pre-western civ times, I suppose men were more honest with themselves about this desire and they did not need to apply so much varnish to it. Western Civilization itself probably gave birth to leftism, the way that new modes required that fig leaves be applied to the nude statuary of antiquity.

    Look; the first thing leftists do when they take power in a nation is to steal property and enslave the former owners. Time and again. This is not ‘progressive’ or new or surprising in any way whatsoever. They can apply the appropriate political conceits to it all they want; re-educating capitalists, a new age of man, power to the proletariat, blah blah blah. Distill it down, the resulting arrangement is indistinguishable in any important quality from previous slave nations headed by corrupt strongmen.

    The United States is still a conservative nation. There is a persistent belief in and legacy of capitalistic success and its attendant values. Many leftists sense this and it frustrates them.
    The US legacy of hostility to leftism is persistent.

    Why do they have to oppose voter ID laws, and why does the lefty media have to continue to lie and misrepresent the characters and goals of really good and decent people? A power in the majority does not need to do these things.

    Above all, Americans hate assholes. We’re in better shape than we think.

  347. That was a pretty interesting article, Andy. Hyper masculinity/hyper systemizing.

    Our TV market has been playing a lot of Autism awareness public service announcements (?)….new numbers 1 in 88 children fall into the Autism/Aspergers continuum.

    Holy smokes, that’s a lot.

  348. Lauraw, I have often subscribed to the Red Dawn theory. It is pretty much as you have articulated “Americans hate assholes”.

  349. Ah, “spectrum.”

  350. Ahh, the Coleman heater. That conjures up fond memories of deer camp.

    Speaking of which, my dad’s torturing me by texting pictures of the turkeys he’s whacking. Season doesn’t start here for weeks.

  351. *snorks some more xylol*

  352. So did anyone else get a criminal case kicked today?

  353. Yeah, that 1 in 88 thing came out today.

    People who blamed thimerosal in vaccines hit hardest.

  354. *kisses lauraw and the hump in appreciation for a fine observation shared in a comment longer than my last 5 comments here put together*

  355. LauraW – Righteous rant!

  356. Man, I love it when Laura goes on a rant.

    *Ships old-fashioned shoe polish from 1942, xylol, and jenkem mixture to CT*

  358. Day-um Girl!

  359. I’m never gonna get caught up here tonight, but to Scott:

    Anyone who covers Bohemian Rhapsody is automatically on the downward slide of their career….

    Waaaaaay too obvious…..

  360. Much better than being called a “Social Retard” my whole life.

    Yeah, because when you’re an adult, you can straighten your pocket protector and bow tie, and say “Yeah? Well FUCK YOU TOO! You’re not my REAL MOM!” and then order another drink.

  361. Holy Crap Laura!

    Thanks X, I will say no more of FbL.

  362. BiW and Oso, you’ll love this.

    Schilling’s post-baseball passion is video games, and he has his own gaming company, 38 Studios.

    They just released their first product: http://www.amazon.com/Kingdoms-Amalur-Reckoning-Xbox-360/dp/B0044SA70M/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1333075932&sr=8-1

    They hire kids on the spectrum to fill as many positions there as they can. It’s kind of a natural fit.

  363. And wiser, STFU. Schilling is a Yankee according to Marcia Coakley.

  364. My niece totaled her 3rd car this week. She is not 21.
    That is gonna hurt forever come insurance time.

  365. I don’t know. I have a hard time with Ethan and video games. If he plays for any time at all, he gets a really, really bad attitude and I can’t snap him out of it for the rest of the day, and I really don’t like him yelling at his little brother for nothing.

  366. Ever notice that these people that want to re-imagine human society in some egalitarian tableau like a termite mound, never actually see *themselves* as one of the bland worker termites? Why is that?

    *snorks some more ’42 shoe polish*

  367. Vmax, I like her. She’s nice.

    She’s also a little…. intense. Not quite “on the spectrum” but she can see it from her house.

  368. Andy – Sorry, but Schilling is a Phillie – end of story.

  369. Sorry, too big a generalization. Obviously the folks they’re hiring are compatible with the positions, too.

    If they need an iPad tester, my little guy is IN!

    One thing I laughed about was when we got to their house, we were standing in the foyer talking with the beautiful Shonda Schilling, and the floor was vibrating like there was a fucking earthquake hitting.

    Nope, just a kickass subwoofer on the gaming system. No need to be alarmed.

  370. Why yes, Laura, I have noticed that.

    *Grabs at Canada Goose flying through family room*

  371. Schilling is a Phillie/Red Sox just like I said! Forget everything else including his conservative tweets. Andy, I guess you finally watched Grandma’s Boy and are appreciative of the “gamer” aspect? LOL

  372. Lauraw, because it can’t work without them holding the reins. It simply wouldn’t be able to work without their imagination and vision.

  373. 3 cars in one week?!?!

  374. And wiser, STFU. Schilling is a Yankee according to Marcia Coakley.

    Let’s not forget the “bloody sock”™

  375. Hahahaha.

    *Takes hit from bong*

  376. I’m honestly surprised he didn’t have the bloody sock framed and hung on the wall somewhere.

    The trophy case was quite impressive, though.

  379. Andy, did he have the leather baseball mitt chair still? Just wondering…

  380. Andy – The sock is in Cooperstown.

  381. Excellent rant Laura. Posts like that for some reason always remind me of reading “The Forsaken”. Unbelievable how some people can be so cruel to to try to achieve their lefty utopia.

  382. Hi Sohita, I am your servant…LOL

  383. Are you wearing the t-shirt?

  384. >> Andy – The sock is in Cooperstown.

    Ahhhh… That explains it.

  385. The trophy case was quite impressive, though.

    I love the guy as much as I hate the guy.

    Wait… more than I hate him. Yeah, that’s it.

    I’ll never forgive him for 2004, but I still love him.

  386. I saw no leather baseball mitt chair.

    Although I only saw ~2,000 of the ~10,000 or so square feet (estimated).

  387. Was I a servant to Sohos or a master/dominatrix too?

  388. Comment by SoHoS on March 29, 2012 11:13 pm

    Are you wearing the t-shirt?

    better question is.. Are you?

    *turns on spigot and aims hose…..

  389. Cyn, you and Sohos are the clique leaders. Andy, I remember the cool baseball mitt chair from the Dback years when I could like him. Girls get shirts!!!! (When Cyn and Sohos are the clique masters)

  390. Oooo yeah: girls definitely get shirts.

    Boys? Pfffft.

  391. Unbelievable how some people can be so cruel to to try to achieve their lefty utopia.

    I am becoming convinced that there is no leftism. There is no such thing. The concept is merely an imaginary construct over the typical human course of things; that is, theft and slavery.

  392. Oooo yeah: girls definitely get shirts.

    Boys? Pfffft.

    That strikes me as backwards, somehow…..

  393. Wait… does clique leaders also mean trouble instigators? I could be good with that role too.

  395. You guys have your Paul Anka, we get Sohos and Cyn as the minion leaders!

  396. I think the agenda is that the white people must pay for past sins…Certain groups wont be happy until all white people are made slaves (of some sort)

  397. merely an imaginary construct over the typical human course of things;

    maybe, it appears cyn and sohos have already begun confiscating shirts at the mere mention of power.

  398. I think the agenda is that the white people must pay for past sins…Certain groups wont be happy until all white people are made slaves (of some sort)

    You’ve just described Critical Race Theory.

    Oh, and the Obama Administration’s motivating principles.

  399. A Clinique Clique… I like it. With matching shirts, right girls?!!

  400. or all Christians, or all people who wear sohos’ shirts

  401. Oso, the chef that catered the thing at their house was from PHX. Shonda said he came out here about 6 months before they (they!) got traded to BOS.

    He made this southwestern cornbread that was ZOMFG!!11! awesome.

  402. Wiser, you missed the drama on FB. WP said Cathy was “bitchy” and he mistook me for Cyn and attacked Sohos. We’re servants of Sonja and Cyn for taking up for Cathy. I want a tee shirt ala Paul anka.

  403. lol wiserbabe I know 😉

  404. Wiser, you missed the drama on FB.

    You really need to reconsider the concept of “missed.”

    And “arguing” with WP is like discussing my cover theory with Andy: You are, by default, correct, but you will spend the rest of your life trying to get him to accept and admit that.

    Basically, it’s a waste of time and should only be entered into for the inherent hilarity that will doubtlessly occur.

    Basically, I just want to see all the Hostagettes without shirts.

    Well, all except Beasn.

  405. So if I wear Sohos’ shirt, I’m racist. Or her Orion slave girl. Sure; I’m good with that.

  406. What Sohos and Wiser said.

    I always wondered why racial harmony peaked at Blazing Saddles. Now I know.

    This is a lot like the terrorism thing. Al Qaeda was at war with us for a long time and we didn’t take it seriously. The Critical Race Theorist black racists are no different.

    Jesse Jackson could never get elected president because of his overt race-baiting, but cypher Obama – the blank screen upon which people could project whatever they wanted – different story.

    The Reverend Wright thing was the opening, but the media provided so much cover and McCain was too big a pussy to take advantage of it.

    /yeah, yeah … racissst!

  407. Andy, was the cornbread cooked in cast iron with jalapeño and lots of butter?

  408. I did not see the utensil, but there was indeed jalapeño and lots of butter.

  409. Oh, and WP calling ANYONE “bitchy” is the stone-cold-pure definition of irony.

  410. >> You are, by default, correct, but you will spend the rest of your life trying to get him to accept and admit that.

    Yeah, whatever.

    Beer me.

  411. Paul Anka is a tiny douchebag with a bad attitude.

  412. Wiser, I love Cathy and ignore WP for the most part. I like the idea that Sohos and Cyn have so much power.

  413. >> Oh, and WP calling ANYONE “bitchy” is the stone-cold-pure definition of irony.

    I kinda made that point yesterday.

  414. Freaking Peggy Noonan finally gets a clue. How many pairs of blinders was she wearing?

  415. I kinda made that point yesterday.

    Yeah, but were you pointing at a brick wall at the same time?

  417. Beer me.

    answer the fucking phone first.

    And close the fucking curtains. the early-morning sun is getting in my eyes…

  418. Pinto tried to friend me once. Bwahahahahaha!

  419. Yeah he has been scared of me for years *sarc*. I thought it was hysterical when Count told him NOT to delete The Facebook

  420. Pinto tried to friend me once. Bwahahahahaha!

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!!!!!!!!

    Yeah he has been scared of me for years *sarc*.

    BWAAAAAAAAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA!!!!!

    yeah, seems there is something about the ladies that tends to cause some slight consternation with the evil pony….

  421. Sohos, I thought it was funny too. I loved the fact that so many of us were there for Cathy.

  422. That was LITERALLY the first thing I have said directly to him since the whole blog war. I never said a word during his episode to him or even on the blog, plus that next day I broke my leg so…

  423. >> I thought it was hysterical when Count told him NOT to delete The Facebook

    Hahahaha. I missed that.

    *Backs up H2*

  424. I was kinda looking forward to him still being at FB so I could thank him for being a dick that nice at AoS and getting me to delurk here, a place where he cannot be a dick. *laughs evilly*

  425. nice = night

    I ♥ evening cocktails

  426. I may have been the one to piss him off with the “drink” game every time he told an OT story. I just got pissed that he pulled his WP crap on Cathy.

  427. If you get the banhammer can you still read the blog?

  428. >> I thought it was hysterical when Count told him NOT to delete The Facebook

    BWAAAAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAAAA!!!

    Holy crap, I’m dying here…..

  429. If you get the banhammer can you still read the blog?

    yup

  430. I think so. You just can’t comment. I believe he was allowed to comment for PA. I know he still lurks at AoS.

  431. hahahahaha That’s awesome!!!!!

  432. Am I the only one who can’t embed video in a poat after the last WordPress “update”?

  433. I just got pissed that he pulled his WP crap on Cathy.

    Somewhere, there are people who find that funny and see no problem with that sort of behavior.

    That place, of course, needs to be nuked from orbit.

    Because there is simply no place on THIS planet where that kind of behavior is even remotely considered acceptable.

  434. BiW – yes.

  435. I believe he was allowed to comment for PA.

    that reminds me..

    I recently received my weekly e-mail from LinkedIn, suggesting people that I might want to link to.

    PA was on the list.

    *wipes tear away

    I almost did it.

  436. Am I the only one who can’t embed video in a poat after the last WordPress “update”?

    did you try plugging it in?

  437. Wiser, it was a thing of beauty the way the H2 crew jumped in to defend Cathy. I love Shim, Count, Sohos, Beasn, Cyn, Clint,Aggie, etc. that circled wagons and had WP threatening to defriend Cathy.

  438. I see there is no help to be found here.

    I guess I’ll ask Nice Deb.

  439. Wiser, last night, martinis were the drink of choice. I thought PA and dirty martini. There may have been tears.

  440. WP threatening to defriend Cathy.

    wow. now that’s a scary threat.

    Wiser, it was a thing of beauty the way the H2 crew jumped in to defend Cathy.

    it’s what we do. And do so well.

    BLOG SWARM!!!!!!

  441. I am off like a dirty shirt. Goodnight friends

  442. I thought PA and dirty martini. There may have been tears.

    I occasionally think of the lovely lady PattyAnn and regret that our relationship ended so badly.

    Makes me sad, because she truly was a wonderful person. I regret never having the opportunity to meet her.

    Unlike mare.

  443. Unlike mare.

    I’m starting to think that ‘mare” is really jusr some Dude named Austin who lives in his mother’s basement and only pretends to be chick.

    What?

  444. I wish Carin was here now. I’m in bed with the iPad, reading the H2!

  445. I regret that I didn’t delurk in time to friend PA. That situation is what finally got me to delurk. I felt Wiser could use the support. I may be buzzed and will denounce this support at a later date. Squirrel..

  446. You know, this Obama chap is making me rethink my abhorrence of racism.

  447. I wish Car in was here right now.

    No reason. Just don’t want her getting any rest.

  448. I felt Wiser could use the support.

    thanks, sweetie….

    I may be buzzed and will denounce this support at a later date.

    NO TAKE BACKS!!!

  449. You know, this Obama chap is making me rethink my abhorrence of racism.

    *imagine link to “THAT’S RACIST!” gif here

  450. Ok. Off to sleep. G’night, minions of Sohos & Cyn!

  451. NO TAKE BACKS!!!

    Oh sure. NOW you tell us.

  452. I wish Car in was here right now.

    So do I!

  453. >> Basically, I just want to see all the Hostagettes without shirts.

    I’m good with this.

    Missed all the stupid with WP. There’s a reason. I choose not to deal with his stupid. He’s a drunk, and he’s an asshole. Do not need in my world.

  454. Awww…I wouldn’t want to lose in Trivial Pursuit to a nicer bunch of people…

  455. Oh sure. NOW you tell us.

    sorry… was that not obvious?

  456. He’s a drunk, and he’s an asshole. Do not need in my world.

    See, this is what I love about Dave.

    He is not afraid to get right down to the bottom of the nearest body of water situation.

    did you watch the video yet, goober?

  457. The “THAT’S RACIST!” gif is racist.

    But, seriously, if I’m going to constantly be accused of being a racist over every little thing, why shouldn’t I just be one for real?

    *Re-reads “I, Rosetta, Am a Proud Racist” after searching through Byzantine tab reclassification system*

    Does this relate to the Waltons comments?

    Good night, Ipad.

  459. I’m watching it now asshole.

    The first 37 seconds are riveting. You dress nice too.

  460. Oh, fuck, I need to watch wiser’s video.

  461. Byzantine tab reclassification system*

    Yannow, if you spent less time hanging with the movers and shakers in the MA Republican party (*snicker) and more time here, where you belong, it wouldn’t have been so difficult for you.

  462. bass drum in high school?

    FUCKING DRUMMER

  463. I have no ass! Runs off crying*

  464. sorry… was that not obvious?

    When we entered the second year of an America-hating SCOAMF Hell-bent on wrecking the economy between vacations and putting his feet on the Resolute Desk, and no one in the media calling it to anyone’s attention, I kind of figured that “obvious” had become a moot concept.

    Sorry. I promise I’ll stop thinking. It might make the next couple of months go by more smoothly.

  465. FUCKING DRUMMER

    Chicks dig the drummer…..

  466. I have no ass! Runs off crying*

    *reserves comment until after we meet

  467. Oh, fuck, I need to watch wiser’s video.

    You know, for as much as I like you, I really hate you…..

  468. somebody in a gay Giants tie feels the lure of the guitar.

    This is a dark road my friend. Don’t go down it. You’ll get foot tappin out of sync disease.

  469. Or at least cut down on my unfortunate outbreaks of Tourettes that manifest themselves whenever I hear his voice.

  470. The first 37 seconds are riveting.

    ummm, you may be watching the wrong video.

    There is no metal work in my video whatsoever

  471. I want to see the outtakes where you kiss yourself.

    ok, not really

  472. You may have missed my quick version of this upthread, but this was funny.

    I was in a meeting this morning and had left my iPhone in the office. When I got back, I had a voice mail from Rosetta, and I was immediately all WTF?!

    Turns out it was a butt-dial from Master Henry, who was apparently playing with the phone.

    Made my day.

  473. I love you guys! Butt dials from Henry…epic!

  474. Those are the best calls.

    The only voice mail I have saved is when Jake called me shortly after he started to get talking on the phone.

    His little voice saying “Daddy? Helohello? Hellohello? *click*”

  475. Wiser, you did a great job on the interview.

    The interviewee was kind of a putz, though.

  476. Turns out it was a butt-dial from Master Henry, who was apparently playing with the phone.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

    OMG, that’s classic.

    His nib’s first cellphone call.

    You must have laughed all day about that.

  477. The interviewee was kind of a putz, though.

    Loved the eyeroll.

    “are you done talking yet???”

  478. I did. I texted with Rosetta afterwards and it was teh funny.

    Bad Henry. BAD!

  479. This is a dark road my friend. Don’t go down it. You’ll get foot tappin out of sync disease.

    maybe, but when I asked the teachers about teaching me the bass, the response I got from each and every one was “what? You’re gay? I did not know that!”

  480. Ok Time to go ice my hand and stay awake until my phone finishes charging.

    No one set anyone on fire while I’m gone, m’kay?

  481. >> Ok Time to go ice my hand

    Cool Hand BiW?

    What’d I miss?

  482. “Hello.. do you have Prince Albert in a can?”

  483. Cool Hand BiW?

    What we have here .. is a failure.. to masturbate….

  484. Just Arthur-itis and a misspent youth, Andy.

    It’s been rainin like a mofo here for a few days now, and it always makes it worse.

  485. oh that is so cool.. baby Hinky with the butt dialin.

    I can’t wait till he’s cruisin chicks in a Boss 302.

    *counts years* Shit. I’m gonna be 70.

    ok, I can wait a little I guess

  486. Wrong hand, Wiser.

    Ok. Outs for reelz.

  487. Ahh, OK.

    I think we can make this work.

    Some of us saw this coming a mile away, you scrunt.

    *works on AoSHQ rant*

  490. I’m bouncing between here and FB. Making a guy feel guilty for breaking my ten year old heart. BRB.

  491. Making a guy feel guilty for breaking my ten year old heart.

    crush. him.

    crush him good.

    and then come back here and remember who loves you the most

    *this guy

  492. *works on AoSHQ rant*

    Unless you are desperate for content, why give her the attention?

  493. Well, her column is in the WSJ, which has a pretty enormous circulation.

    And other people will be talking about it … most likely favorably.

    So I doubt it’ll be augmentative.

  494. Awww…he’s never married and still apologizing for letting my Dad scare him off. I just saw him in Vegas. I wish I could go to Michigan and let you guys make me feel blonde and cute.

  495. augmentative.

    welll…

    ummmm…..

    okay then…..

    *checks wallet for Mensa card…

    *checks Wiki for definition…

    “An augmentative (abbreviated AUG) is a morphological form of a word which expresses greater intensity, often in size, but also in other attributes. It is the opposite of a diminutive.”

    WTF??!?!?!?!

  496. >> I wish I could go to Michigan and let you guys make me feel blonde and cute

    me too

  497. Awww…he’s never married

    you BROKE him!

    nicely done.

    …you guys make me feel blonde and cute.

    yer not?

    *cough..

    *checks watch…

    gosh, look at the time….

    gotta go.

    😉

    nite, y’all!

  498. I knew you guys were smart! Thanks, DiT.

  499. Adjective: Able to augment.

    Augment: to make greater, more numerous, larger, or more intense

  500. Augment: surgery that would make me ineligible for BBF. Damn…DD aren’t enough.

  501. Oso, don’t tell Rosetta, but I think a cuppla non-naturall beauties many have snuck in recently.

  502. oso, pics or it ain’t true.

    C’mon, it’s just me and you here this late.

    Did I mention I’m not wearing pants?

  503. I think that Muscular Mondays may have snuck more than augmentation in. Wink wink nudge nudge

  504. phat, my pic is in POL.

  505. The muscular Monday chicks have to do that. Bewbs are mostly fat.

    But the rule only applies to BBF, so yay, fake adipose!

  506. Double derp.

  507. I’m gaining weight again. Gain in bewbs first. Gone from D to DD in one month. Still wear a 14 boys though. Creepy!

  508. Evening, Sean!

    I’m on the midnight shift again. This one looks to be a bit busier than the last few.

  509. Phat, my Kabul friend is home in Idaho. Are you saying that Douchebagistan is interesting again? Wink Wink Nudge Nudge

  510. >> I’m gaining weight again. Gain in bewbs first.

    And … the Mrs. is training for her fifth marathon.

  511. I think that Muscular Mondays may have snuck more than augmentation in. Wink wink nudge nudge

    Could we maybe take a vote to have that particular recurring feature discontinued?

  512. Phat, how much can I pay you to hit the “nuke it from orbit, it’s the only way to be sure” button?

  513. Guessing which one is the dude is half the fun of muscular mondays.

  514. What do you mean “which one”?

  515. A certain Miss Canada entrant was gonna show up here Monday, but she was disqual’d for being post-op.

  516. Haha ha. Love you guys! Still busting chops in RL on FB.

  517. My theory is we can’t get out fast enough and the last man out triggers the detonator.

    Oso, nothing ‘combat interesting’, just the usual assortment of broken C-5’s and a lot of contract commercial missions that are dorked up.

    Manas AB (UAFM for you aviator types) decided to close 4000′ of their runway for construction with about 2 days notice. That limits the takeoff weight of missions departing, which impacts how much cargo they can carry out. I get to spend the night fixing that mess. Yay me!

  518. What year did you graduate from USAFA, phat?

  519. Wow. Phat, I hope you get to catch up on MST3K and not have to worry about douchebagistan. I used to care about the girls and women in the Islamic veil but I pretty much want to go Medieval on them too.

  520. BTW, on my comment way up above when I said something about marrying a Waffle House waitress, ZOMFG did I really mean something more like this:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_xjy6EuMPGA&feature=relmfu

  521. Andy–1988. Yep, I’m old.

    Will probably retire this fall.

  522. Andy, isn’t that Mrs. Blake Shelton?

  523. Phat, I have thrown chingasos at the AFA for years. I know that I have done so so when you were there. LOBOS!!!! Woof! Woof! Woof!

  524. Oso, it’s hard for me to get into MST3K when I’m sober.

    Have to really be in the mood. May start to check out Riff Trax, though.

  525. Just saw Blake in concert in Vegas. Long way from Austin and Old Red.

  526. Phat, I was in the class of ’90 until an unfortunate injury meant I’d never fly anything heavier than a desk.

    FNA

  527. Yeah, we pretty much owned New Mexico when I played, ’84-’88.

    Chingasos? isn’t that like a punch or something?

  528. Yes, that is Mrs. Bake Shelton, and I lurves her: http://mygunculture.com/2011/05/14/miranda-lambert-shoots-wedding-deer/

  529. Andy, what squadron? I was in 25-redeye.

  530. Deuce

  531. Ah, the ‘carpeted dorm’. Weak.

    Buffers ruled.

  532. Yeah, we probably never saw each other.

    You were in Sijan hall, right?

    I was perched right over the “bring me men” ramp. Back in the day, eh?

  533. Third floor, room overlooked Mitch’s.

    Not sure if I would do it over, but the USAFA-only vision waiver was the only way I could have gotten to Flight School.

    These days my advice to aspiring young un’s is to enlist in their local guard unit, go to college, then OCS, then flight school.

  534. Only at H2 could there be more inside jokes about arcane military academy shit.

    Remember when there was an enormous banner on the chapel in, oh, November 1986 or so, that no one had any idea how could have possibly gotten up there?

    This guy + bow and arrow + fishing line.

    Although there was one of the terazzo planes that was hoisted on top of Mitchell hall one time that may, to this day, be shrouded in secrecy.

  535. Yeah, Phat, my brother is Army ROTC right now.

  536. My favorite prank was when that white x-plane showed up in the courtyard of Arnold Hall.

    No one could figure out how they did it, engineers were all scratching their pointy heads and consulting the slide rules. Just as the PTB were getting ready to break out a crane, the cadets fessed up that they delated one of the tires and tilted it at a 45 degree angle to fit it through the corridor with a couple of inches to spare. Then reinflated the tire after it was in.

    Lots of smart people trapped in a military school over the weekend usually ends in some creative forms of buffoonery.

  537. I was on the rifle team, which was kind of funny vis my high school buddies given than I was the only NCAA athlete to come out of the bunch.

    Ramps for doing nothing more than shooting a rifle worked for me, though.

  538. WTF are you people still doing awake?

  539. MJ, I’m at work. Not sure what Andy’s excuse is.

  540. Oh, right. For some reason the spaghetti I ate for dinner is trying to kill me.

    I think I’m getting old.

  541. One thing I remember vividly about my time there is that Pat Schroeder was Colorado’s senator and the time, and she fuckin’ hated us.

    IIRC, she had a real problem with “nuking” which consisted of a bunch of underclassmen getting hold of the most vile remnants of lunch possible to celebrate an upperclassman’s birthday or whatever.

  542. I’m just here to torment MJ. Why do you axe?

  543. Yeah, Schroeder was a stone cold bitch.

    Her name came up on ’88’s facebook page. Seems like one of our more-detested classmates – Martha McSally – is running for congress in AZ. One of the guys pointed out that her and Schroeder were tight and that she had nudged Martha’s career along.

  544. Remember that one time we dropped acid and then did ‘shrooms the next night?

    Oh, wait. You guys went to a different college…

  545. wakey wakey

  546. Good morning Carin!

  547. Chingasos is throwing punches. Heather Wilson is a former AFA grad and congresswoman. Running for Senate this year. Phat, I dropped out in ’85. Still attended games. I love going to CO, TX, and NV to support my loser Lobos.

  548. Morning phat.

    what should I be outraged about today?

  549. Don’t know Heather personally, but I’ve heard good things about her.

    McSally is running for Gifford’s former seat in AZ.

  550. Carin, 30 min from shift change with three days off after. All is cool in my world.

    I hear rumors that the CinC is a SCOAMF, but can neither confirm nor deny.

  551. MRS MJ DID NOT MAKE COFFEE.

    *immolates

  552. You know , Lee “tweeted” his apology to that couple in florida. As if they’re followers of his. @@

    How about he pay their hotel bill until it’s safe for them to return home?

  553. I hear rumors that the CinC is a SCOAMF, but can neither confirm nor deny.

    I’m pretty sure I can confirm that.

  555. I see no room for golf in that schedule!

    The man needs his R&R! We’re driving the POTUS too hard!

  556. I wonder if he’ll get his donations in granola. Sure seems that way.

  557. I went to starbucks, rather than make coffee for just myself, in case you were wondering.

  558. Starbucks?

    * shuns *

  559. Above all, Americans hate assholes. We’re in better shape than we think.
    ———————————————–
    *smiles

    I firmly believe that as the campaign heats up, Obama is going to have a hard time hiding his assholeyness. Last time, the target was Bush, who was conveniently not around to defend himself. This time I believe people will sense he’s somewhat talking about them when he mocks people for not believing in algae power, or high speed trains, or whatever the fuck is on the agenda.

    If there’s one consistent piece of feedback I’ve heard about Obama, it’s that he’s an asshole. From Chicago to the Oval Office, even democrats describe him as a jerk that believes he is the smartest person in the room, needs to let you know he’s the smartest person in the room, and waits for his turn to talk or interrupts others, rather than actually listening.

  560. I can’t wait until Obama can start golfing again.

  561. Did I miss anything?

  562. MJ’s wife didn’t make coffee.

  563. I don’t think any recipes were posted recently and I know I haven’t mentioned fitness.

    So, nope. You should be good to go.

  564. MJ’s wife didn’t make coffee.

    Aw man, another divorce? /sigh

    It’s gettin’ downright demoralizing.

  565. I don’t know if he’s going to divorce her. I think a beating is planned. They should be able to make it through this.

  566. If a beating fixes it, that’s good. My faith in the institution will be somewhat restored.

  567. Do you guys know how to get blood out of a white, wool rug? Also, do you know how to set a broken nose?

    I fell down some stairs.

  568. Some fun stuff in this morning’s Jolt from Geraghty on the left-right divide and why conservatives understand the liberal mind, but the liberal mind can’t grasp conservative thinking. This bit from Moe Lane (the specific topic is why are liberals wigging out over SCOTUS right now, and didn’t see the constitutional arguments coming; short answer is they didn’t think so good):

    http://moelane.com/2012/03/29/rsrh-john-podheretz-is-giving-away-the-game-here/

    “The reason why conservatives understand liberals better than liberals understand conservatives is because you cannot avoid the liberal mindset in this culture even if you wanted to. It’s flipping everywhere: and you have to learn to recognize at least the basics in sheer memetic self-defense. Contrariwise, it is exceedingly easy for liberals to ignore conservatives if they so desire; and most liberals do. Honestly, if conservatives could ignore liberals we probably would; we would, if we could, but we can’t, so we don’t.”

  569. I saw that bit quoted somewhere else and thought it was brilliant.

  570. Heh. Probably shouldn’t have taken on the Mrs. before she had her coffee.

  571. *gets ready to set MJ’s nose*

    This is gonna hurt. Again.

  572. Good morning everyone!

  573. Setting hurts as much as breaking. More, maybe, due to anticipation.

  574. Rather asking Maddow if she knew any women who didn’t use birth control was rather humorous.

    He’s a boob. And not in a good way.

  575. Have any of you heard from Catman? Wonder how he’s doing?

  576. I have a similar thought when I listen to liberal friends talk politics. They, and most liberals just aren’t intellectually curious. I’ve always thought that as skeptics and cynics, conservatives will tend to probe an argument a bit more.

    *ouch! How do I look?

  577. I know a lot of women that don’t use it that ALSO have sex with men. Their husbands. It’s weird. I mean, they get pregnant and stuff.

    Also, whoever told me the rythym method would surely get my wife pregnant within a year even if done carefully was mistaken. I was sort of counting on a happy accident.

  578. “They, and most liberals just aren’t intellectually curious.”

    Very true.

    That’s why the whole “Obama is sooooo intellectually integrated” crappola was so funny. The guy says what he’s told to say. He doesn’t “punch above his weight.”

  579. If Obama’s ever read a single page of GK Chesterton, I’ll eat my copy of “Collected Works, Volume 1”.

  580. MJ, what are you doing this weekend?

  581. Why would Maddow or any of her friends need birth control?

  582. Moorning

  583. Hotspur, that was the hilarity of Rather asking.

  584. I think I’m going to watch Whittle’s latest Afterburner again. It was fantastic. It was linked upthread by Count but what the heck:

  585. Aw man, I think it’s work time.

    Blah.

  586. MJ, what are you doing this weekend?
    ————————————-
    Thanks for asking, Mare. I’m not sure what we are going to do tonight, but we discussed going out to dinner. Possibly with a few friends. If not, it’ll be date night and maybe we’ll make out or something.

    I have a few things to do in the yard, but the big winter clean up was a few weeks ago so this is more routine maintenance than anything. We might plant some bamboo toward the back of the fence, and I’m thinking about building a trellis for a bougainvillea vine. Rhonda wants something to obscure the hot tub, and neither of us want to put in more palms. I’m thinking it could kind of be like a wall along the lanai. If I get to it, I’ll email pictures.

    Probably going to get a long run in, and the usual weekend errands.

    What are you doing?

  587. Have a good day, Leon!

  588. Did you really break your nose MJ? Holy crap. Stop texting and Tweeting on your iPad while walking. Oh, but get me some coffee while you’re up please.

  589. Sounds like you need a weekend after the weekend! And definitely email pictures. We are still deciding on the “big picture” of our back yard so it is still a rectangle of grass and a couple of bird feeders…it’s depressing.

    Our back yard in Florid and Hawaii were soothing to the soul…..this yard, not at all….not yet.

  590. Also, whoever told me the rythym method would surely get my wife pregnant within a year even if done carefully was mistaken. I was sort of counting on a happy accident.

    The trick is to mess up while attempting the rhythm method. Like – drink too much gin RIGHT on one of the bad days of 12-14.

    Doing it correctly will get you no where.

  591. Oh, and I don’t know what I’m doing. Husband got home last night from a business trip so probably dinner out tonight…..has to be a place where I can eat and not put on 10 pounds. Workouts, shooting range, bike rides near the lake.

  592. Our back yard in Florid and Hawaii were soothing to the soul…..this yard, not at all….not yet.

    I know what you mean. This is our first house, but when we bought it, the backyard was just dirt. The front was ok, but kind of depressing. By now, we’re at the point where it almost finished. Just needs a few things here and there. I think I have a video from last year. I’ll email it to you.

  593. Is GMo around? Saw this from last night:

    Comment by G Mohawk on March 29, 2012 9:50 pm
    crap, I wish my girls had some sense of ordered thinking. they are perfectionist at school yet can’t quite figure out clothes go in the hamper. Told. Every. Day.

    GMo – get those girls tested for ADD NOW!!!!!!

    It manifests itself VERY differently in girls – DD#3 got diagnosed in 5th Grade (although her teachers were rumbling about it as early as 2nd grade); DD#2 obviously HAS it, but refuses to get tested because she doesn’t want to take pills; and DD#1 self-diagnosed when she was in college (later confirmed by M.D.)

    The later girls are diagnosed, the more problems they are starting to exhibit.

    The Catch-22 is that because of the way that females’ brains are compartmentalized (they can multi-task, so they are able to “compensate”), the later they tend to get diagnosed.

    PM me if you want more info.

  594. “I have a video from last year. I’ll email it to you.”

    Great!

  595. MJ,
    Bamboo?
    The big stuff is a nightmare of biblical proportions.
    The small stuff is just a nightmare.

  596. Also, whoever told me the rythym method would surely get my wife pregnant within a year even if done carefully was mistaken. I was sort of counting on a happy accident.

    Your wife is the one on a GF diet, right? Was she diagnosed with CD?

    How long has she been on the GF diet, and is she STRICTLY following it? It can take a year or two before everything has healed enough to support a pregnancy, especially in someone who has CD.

    You guys probably already know this, though…… 😛

  597. I thought the sexes were equal.

  598. The Boy gets here this afternoon for a 3-week visit.

    *looks out at yard that badly needs work*

    Yeah, this is gonna work out just fine……

  599. NEW POAT

  600. Our first major decision in the back yard: put in a pool (which is really necessary here because of the HEAT) or use the 30-35 thousand for vacations away from Texas during the heat.

    We decided on the vacations. Next question, how much stamped concrete and pergola size.? Water feature (fountain of some kind) and how many trees and what do we want to attract (hummingbirds, butterflies, bald eagles…etc..). We have gas to the outside so we have to figure out BBQ placement and what not.

    Also, we found $20.

  601. Fucking Apple. Sometimes I just want to punch a bitch.

    So I’m downloading a whole bunch of app updates. Some of them are age restricted, like cocktail recipes, and Fuck My Life, etc. So you have to acknowledge that when you download them. I get that part.

    But in downloading the Drudge app, some dickbag classified it as containing age restricted material. However, the New York Times app does not have that warning. What is on Drudge’s site that is age sensitive?

    Fuck them in the dickhole.
