  1. Ohai.

  2. This also made me giggle a little bit.

  3. 50 Shades of Cyn.

  4. Anybody else find it funny that Leon is devastated by killing a (an???) opossum, but is contemplating planting apple trees to help ambush Bambi?

  5. Heh heh. Fourth grade for sure.

  6. Hooray, it’s finally getting light outside. Time to go break up a concrete slab.

  7. Sounds totally legit, Pepe.

  8. By hand, or do you have equipment to do that?

  9. I was telling my husband some of the stupid stuff we regularly say here and he was laughing but it was kind of like, “Oh brother, that’s ridiculous.” And I mentioned how fun fourth grade humor was and he had to agree.

  11. Anybody else find it funny that Leon is devastated by killing a (an???) opossum, but is contemplating planting apple trees to help ambush Bambi?

    It’s different enough in my mind. The opossum situation wasn’t traumatic because I was killing an animal, it was because I wasn’t prepared for it, and because IT CAME BACK TO LIFE WHILE I WATCHED IT, after I PUT A BULLET THROUGH IT.

    Deer hunting would be a different situation entirely.

  12. No, I don’t find it funny really. Anytime you kill something with your hands you can feel a little remorse.

    Besides, it’s the “undead” now.

    It’s like Mel Brooks said, “tragedy is when I cut my little finger. comedy is when you fall into an open manhole and die”

    *sits between mare and Cyn and shares coffee with mushrooms.*

  13. Mostly because the first thing I’d do with a “dead” deer is bleed it out to be sure.

  14. Hi Hot Chicks and Pepe

  15. Vman, when are you moving? Have a date yet? Renting your house?

    Kicks Dave under the table to get him into trouble with mom.

  16. Mare, I just want you to know that even though you wished death upon a whole bunch of us the other day, I am still alive.

  17. Mare’s death wishes have largely proven ineffective thus far. I’m beginning to doubt her voodoo powers.

  18. Tushar, you did not “like” the post or give it a thumbs up. Actions have consequences.

  20. I start the 11th Mare I am planning on leaving here on the 6th and arriving on the 7th google says it is a 14 hr trip

  21. Leon, who do you think sent that opossum? I will not fail next time.

  22. MOM! MARE KICKED ME FIRST

  23. Carin, send one of the kids to go pick up your dad.

  24. That thing was never a threat to me, Mare, but I’ll let Boots know that our vengeance is not complete.

    Crap, this is now a better movie plot than I’ve seen in years.

  25. That’s what kids with drivers licenses are for. Also groceries.

  26. Leon, who do you think sent that opossum?

    Mare, send Honey Badger next time.

  27. You can’t send a honey badger on a job. They don’t give a shit.

  29. Dr. Pol is on. He’s stitching up an injured calf. No arms up any butts yet, but I missed a lot of the episode.

  30. Maybe it was a plumbing company?

  31. Dr. Pol’s wife has a hammerless .38. Pol-son get her ammo for Mother’s Day. It’s hard not to love this show.

  32. ANOTHER EPISODE!

  33. I’d read Hitchens over Dawkins. The Selfish Gene was okay, but it was more about the algorithms of selection and mutation than a polemic. I found it a very good primer when I went to do genetic algorithm programming. The rest of his books appear to be emotional polemics rather than informative treatises, and he only appears to attack Christian theism, rather than theism in general.
    Hitchens didn’t back down from the jihadis, and I respect the consistency.

  34. Celebration dinner came to $175.00. Lasted from 7:30 to 11. Plus where we were sitting in the restaurant we could see the tv over the bar, so we got to see Michigan beat Kansas.

  35. From Pupster’s link:

    OH MY GOD WE NEED PRINCESS LEIA TO STRANGLE IT WITH A CHAIN

  36. MJ, Selfish Gene is a really good read on reasoning using selection, mutation, and variation. It’s not really even about biology in the strictest sense. Utility and success with different strategies are the core of it, and why things that self-replicate don’t have to “want” anything.

    He makes a good point that it’s just anthropomorphizing to say that genes “want” anything, but it’s a convenient way of understanding them. Things that replicate better achieve prevalence, and that’s it. Doesn’t matter what caused them to replicate better, but whatever behaviors went with that will proliferate. That’s also why the title’s “selfish” is a bit of a jokes: genes don’t care about anything, and they certainly don’t care about you, you’re just the vehicle that self-replicating protein strands built because doing so makes more of things that make more of themselves.

  37. Oh. Ok.

    Was there any real sex in it or just mutant gene sex?

  38. My “feeling” was that it was a helpful way to understand self-replicating entities. You could apply the same reasoning to any massed set of such entities with a set of incentives, rewards, and penalties.

  39. No. No sex. There were some pictures, though.

  40. Cyn, we had to rent a jackhammer. It’s going slowly…………..

  48. I was thinking more along the lines of the fact that she’s a butterface.

  49. Morning…off to The Boy’s therapy session!

  50. Eh, I’d take her over Jillian Michaels.

  51. I’m just sayin’, there’s lots better looking girls out there.

  52. Oh, I know. I don’t have higher expectations for women on the internet than I do for women in real life, though, and I’d count myself lucky to get her phone number if I met her at the gym.

    I mean, it’s not like she has sharp elbows.

  53. Carin, I thought you had two kids old enough to drive. Good to know one is helping out.

  54. Roamie, I saw your video the other day. I suppose this could be taken as an insult, but believe me, I don’t mean it that way. Do you know that you are more articulate than the President of the United States? Way more.

  55. There’s also the work ethic and similarity of interests that helps. It’s like Danica McKellar. Sure, she’s pretty, but tell me she’s got a Bachelor’s in math and a published paper and she goes up a couple of points.

  56. I didn’t see the Roamie video, is there a link around?

  57. I hope Roamie can supply it for you, I don’t remember what day it was.

    Thank you, Hotspur. At least on that subject, I like to think I know what I’m talking about.

  59. Roamy’s an expert in white powders?

    So was Jim Belushi.

  60. Knowing your subject is definitely conveyed in your responses, but you are so clear in your speech – no umms, uhhhs, ahhhs, etc. Whole sentences without any dangling phrases.

    Which explains why the president can’t do it. WTF does he know?

  62. Thanks Roamy. Watching now.

  63. So was Jim Belushi.

    I assume Jim still is, if he ever was.

  64. I thought the video editor did a great job. I’ll admit, we had to do several takes. It’s supposed to show up in “This Week @ NASA”, but I don’t know when.

  65. Leon, only one published paper required?

  66. Great job, Roamie!

  67. That was pretty awesome rocket chick.

  68. Leon, only one published paper required?

    For Winnie Cooper? Yes. Your video is pretty good, though.

    The Presidential spokesman said the president was devastated, as he had not finished coloring the second one.

  73. Roamie, since you handles the space stuff, what are the odds that you are infected by alien spores and will be dubbed “patient zero” by the CDC?

  74. Pepe, I’d say pretty likely. One of the experiments I worked on 20 years ago was featured in Weekly World News. If I can find the article, I’ll poat it at XBrad’s.

  146. Of the North Koreans, I wonder how many of the Old Guard are left and how many of them are younger and successfully brainwashed.

  149. MCPO, I hope to see a cute pic of DG in her Easter finery tomorrow,

  150. This doesn’t hurt just Russians. Any business in Cyprus is hosed if they kept a lot of money in the bank.

    In what appears to be drastically worse than many had hoped (and expected), uninsured depositors in Cyprus’ largest bank stand to get no actual cash back from their initial deposit as the plan (expected to be announced tomorrow) is:

    22.5% of the previous cash deposit gone forever (pure haircut)
    40% of the previous cash deposit will receive interest (but will never be repaid),
    and the remaining 37.5% of the previous cash deposit will be swapped into equity into the bank (a completely worthless bank that is of course.)
    So, theoretically this is 62.5% haircut but once everyone decides to ‘sell’ their shares to reconstitute some cash then we would imagine it will be far greater. Furthermore, at what valuation will the 37.5% equity be allocated (we suspect a rather aggressive mark-up to ‘market’ clearing levels).

  215. I have a few suggestions to throw sand in the gears of gun grabbers: except for the Military, US Marshals, FBI and USCIS officers, red states should ban any federal govt employees from possessing an official or private firearms. FEMA, Deptt of Education, fisheries: surrender your weapons or face arrest.

    NRA should suggest that policemen not be allowed to have firearms at home, and when they are off duty. At the end of the shift, they should lock the weapons inside the police station and go home unarmed. Why should an off duty cop be allowed to protect his home when a private citizen cannot? He should call 911 and patiently wait for the on-duty cops like everyone else.

    Let the gun grabbers explain why these are bad ideas.

  216. Awww, your pups looks happy and wasted, Pupster!

    Well done!

  217. What’s an etsy?

  218. Online craft fair Jewstin.

  219. Jewstin, you don’t know what Etsy is? Are you even gay?

    Etsy is an online marketplace where liberals, hipsters and artsy-fartsy types buy useless crap, and smart sellers sell them useless crap.

  220. Etsy is an online marketplace where liberals, hipsters and artsy-fartsy types buy useless crap, and smart sellers sell them useless crap.

    Go, Beasn, go! Exploit the fuck out of those liberal, hipster, artsy-fartsy douchebags.

  221. Exploit the fuck out of those liberal, hipster, artsy-fartsy douchebags.

    See? This is why Jewstin didn’t know it existed. He’s none of these things.

    Well, maybe a little artsy-fartsy, but that’s it.

  222. Ohio State looks like they are on opiates.

  223. I’m not artsy-fartsy. I have excellent taste. It’s different.

  224. I like Tushar’s avi.

    He reminds me of a cellmate I once had…

  225. >>>I’m not artsy-fartsy. I have excellent taste. It’s different.<<<

    So you're saying that your talent consists entirely of how you sort through the product of other people's creativity?

  226. Exactly. BiW gets it.

  227. >>>Exactly. BiW gets it.<<<

    Only after paying for an expensive evening out, and the liberal application of chloroform.

  228. Etsy is an online marketplace where liberals, hipsters and artsy-fartsy types buy useless crap, and smart sellers sell them useless crap.

    You forgot teh gheys. It might be useless crap but if you are good, you can make some bucks.

  229. Or you can just take peoples money and not send them anything.

  230. If you see a bearded guy with a black&white cloth over his shoulder at this link, he is pretty much the poster child of the artsy-fartsy, hipster douchebag liberal community.

  231. “If you see a bearded guy with a black&white cloth over his shoulder at this link, he is pretty much the poster child of the artsy-fartsy, hipster douchebag liberal community.”

    Wait, is this a vision test?

  232. I just made some artsy-fartsy dyed eggs with the little guy.

    I’m ready for etsy!

  233. Today is the three week anniversary of thumbsmash.

    It is still swollen.

  234. Or you can just take peoples money and not send them anything.

    I’m not working for the government yet.

  235. It is still swollen.

    Put a hot paperclip through it again. Sounds like you didn’t pop it all the way.

  236. Scott, have you shown it to a doctor? You may want to. 3 weeks is a bit too much.

  237. I will not be catering to metro douchebaggie artsy fartsys.

    My stuff will be cute.

  238. I love to buy stuff on Etsy – does that make me a closet liberal hipster douchebag?

  239. Beasn, what kind of stuff do you have in mind?

  240. Just ordered a blu-ray of Fantasia for my Debra Grace. Loading her up on classic Disney.

  241. *pops 2 Rimadyl*

  242. Did anybody tell anybody else that they’d never work in this town again today?

  243. Why are Disney Blu rays so freakin expensive?

  244. I am not showing it to a doctor. They get better reimbursements for amputation.

  245. All that dry ice for Walt’s head isn’t cheap, Tush.

  246. This is why Tushar

  247. >>>>I am not showing it to a doctor. They get better reimbursements for amputation.<<<

    You're denying the state its opportunity to collect on that medical device tax. It isn't helping Obamacare, and is therefore unpatriotic. You should report yourself to Attackwatch, and get yourself to the nearest re-education camp immediately, Scott.

  248. Tushar – Always check the daily specials on Amazon. I wait for them to go on special.

  249. I bet Obama has Ohio State in this one.

  250. Scott, agreed, those movies were produced the hard way, but I am sure Disney has recouped the cost by now. Now the marginal cost of a bluray disk is under a dollar. And aren’t these works supposed to become public domain after 70 years?

  251. The lawyers that keep those things out of the public domain aren’t cheap, Tush.

  252. Damn, why couldn’t Ohio State shoot like this last week?

  253. OSU – done.

  254. *vodka chaser*

  255. Beasn, what kind of stuff do you have in mind?

    soft sculpture, amigurumi, etc..

  256. Mr. Beasn brought home a bag of bananas. I have finished baking 4 loaves of banana bread and the house smells fabulous!

  257. Ok…this is Final Four has a chance to not only have no Number 1’s playing in it for the first time ever, but also, only one number 2 seed as well.

    And my bracket is blowed up real good

  258. Amigur…………HIPSTER!

  259. HA! I am enjoying Pups descent into total relaxation.

    Keep updating, Pups!

  260. well that nap was a fuckin mistake

  261. Bubbles.

  262. I am out
    If I do not see you tomorrow Happy Easter! or is it Blessed Easter?
    to be PC happy passover, and spring festival, did I miss anyone?

    I bought 15 more boxes. I also have a garage sale/craigs list pile.

    Unfortunately, I am starting on the 11th and payday’s are on the 1st and the 16th. I will not get much until the 1st of May. Ouch!

  263. Speaking of brackets, anyone knows what this thing is called?

    Also, is this the best way to hang a child swing under a patio, or is there a better solution?

  264. Heh Dave.

  265. Apparently, that thing is called an anchor shackle. May be useless for hanging swings.

  266. Louisville is a the tournament No. 1 seed and they haven’t lost yet, mundane.

  267. grogsa.. gah.. welcome to Texas vman,, fuck why won’t my eyes focus?

  268. *turns up volume, stares out window*

  269. God I must be sleepy, that’s funny pups.

    Also one of my FB friends has a 7 month old beagle pup.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  270. *goes to happy place*

  272. Clint, I know. That’s why I said “my be the first”

  273. Tushar, get some carabiners that can support at least double your kids weight. Home Depot or Lowes have them where they sell chains.

  274. Hi guys!

  275. Finally broke down and had to turn on the AC when it hit 83 inside.

  276. Are you looking for the eyebolts that screw into a wooden beam or something, Tush?

  277. Oso!

    Hold on, I need to refind a picture for you.

  279. Had to drive to Los Lunas this evening to return the jackhammer we had to rent to break up the concrete slab. We stopped by the WalMart to pick up a few things, and OH MY GOD!!! You know that “People of WalMart” site? Well, most of those people were at the Los Lunas WalMart. It was horrific. The winner was a 30 year old woman who looked 45, was wearing skinny jeans falling off her ass, muffin top, cropped shirt, had a navel piercing and piercings through her muffin top 3″ on either side of her navel, 2 kids, and was filthy dirty. Ewwwww. I need a shower.

  280. Xbrad, this is relevant to your interests: http://tinyurl.com/ck8lr2t

  281. Pups, most people translate “Dachshund” as badger dog, I think your link is the right way to translate.

  282. I’ll kill you first, Pups.

  283. Pepe, we make fun of Ginger, because she’s from Los Lunas. You want really scary PoW…Ruidoso! I’m related to quite a few of the canyon dwellers that shop there. Dan calls Ruidoso “Deliverance, NM.”

  284. XBrad, yes, eyebolt would be good, but I want the threaded shaft of the eyebolt to be parallel to ground. Not going straight up from below. I like the combined idea of your’s and Mundane’s. drive an eyebolt horizontally, and then hang a carabiner from it.

  285. Pups, I saw that yesterday. Gave me nightmares.

  286. If your beam is large enough, and you use a proper eyebolt, vertical should be just fine. Having the anchor point horizontal would run into problems with the swinging when the chain struck the lower portion of the beam.

  287. Is the top of the beam exposes/accessible? If so, you could put an eyebolt all the way through, and have it held by a large diameter washer on the top side.

  288. No, top of the beam is not accessible, unfortunately. I will have to pull up deck floorboards. I don’t wantto go there. This project is DIY, and I am not the handiest person around.

  289. Hey, but I can do this: I can attach 2X4s to joists, and then run long eyebolts all the way through and a large washer as you suggested. There are special swing hangers just for that kind of thing.

  290. So, basically, you want to hang the swing from one of the joists of the back deck…. Not sure there IS a good, safe way to do that.

  291. That might work. But yeah, I’d definitely plan on reinforcing the joists.

  292. I think I got this now. I will attach 2X4s to joists using lag bolts, and then hang these from the 2X4: http://www.swingsetmall.com/products/Galvanized-Shaft-Style-Swing-Hanger.html

  293. Here’s the deal, I could give a rat’s ass that Alford is going to UCLA. He never got us further than Dave Bliss did. I just hope that Alford has a better legacy then Bliss did after leaving NM.

  294. Pups, I love your voice. Moving.

  295. Holy crap, I LOL’d:

    More wine, Mare?

  296. Dude, Mare is up late.

  297. G’night peeps and Happy Easter. We decided Chinese food was more important than Easter Vigil. Family day tomorrow…yay?

  298. I am tired, I am weary
    I could derp for a thousand years
    A thousand dreams that would awake me
    Different colors made of tears

  299. Morning children. Did the Easter Bunny come visit you? Hopefully Leon didn’t shoot him then bludgeon him to death with a shovel…………

  300. No bunnies yet. But I’m ready for ’em.

  301. New poat………..

  302. RUN, EASTER BUNNY! RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!
