Gelatinous Goo and Nads

Oso says that we should all just shut our whore mouths, and not comment on the fact that her worse half pickles his own eggs. Don’t think so, Oso. Don’t think so.

Mr Oso, (if that’s even his real name) is going to enter the annals and athol of history as a category on our sidebar. See if you can spot it.

Mmmmm delicious looking, non? Tasty orbs of gelatinous goo floating around in some sort of red peppery sauce.

  6. And of course plenty of olive oil on everything, to assist in maintaining satiety.

    My wife gets angry at me when I use that word. Real word, but she insists I use a different, less accurate word.

  7. First post: Blue balls
    Second post: Pickled juevos

  8. Maybe if we really talk up the pickle thing, Mare will return.

  22. Customer: I need this ivory thing shipped.

    Me: Sorry, we cannot ship ivory.

    Customer: WELL, it’s not really ‘ivory – ivory,’ it is…. *mumbledy*

  23. answered!

  24. I don’t like him myself

    Hispandering son of a bitch

  30. But Ganesh the elephant god will know

  31. Will you ship this Ivory Snow?
    I want to know.
    It’s in a box.
    Not a fox.

  32. Asshole poachers killed too many elephants for ivory.
    And they kill tigers and rhinos because chinese idiots believe their body parts impart sexual prowess.
    You fuckers fucked enough to produce 1.5 billion slanty eyed people! You don’t need more sexual prowess.

    It does not matter what I wear
    I will not ship it, anywhere.

    *mic drop*

  35. All roads lead to Athol.

    This ivory guy had asked me to come down on my price (before I knew it was ivory). So, it isn’t bad enough that he wants to argue me into risking my business (not to mention incurring legal penalties and fines); in exchange for the privilege of breaking the law for him, I should get to make even less money.

    Yeahhhh….no.

  36. You fuckers fucked enough to produce 1.5 billion slanty eyed people! You don’t need more sexual prowess

    Wha..?

  50. That would be a great cocktail table.

    For MJ, maybe. They’re only about 10 inches tall. And the surface operates at 400 degrees, so you wouldn’t want to lean your elbow on it.

  51. That would be a great cocktail table for my former sister-in-law.

    Fixeted.

  52. Perfect size for cooking testicles

  53. We use ground ivory at crackfat to increase our muscle strength.

  60. Tiger teeth, finely ground, are where it’s at. But the teeth must be removed from a live tiger.

  61. Know what increases sexual potency in a man, proven in a lab and everything?

  70. Spots vs. Stripes

    Not the ones in your underwear.

  71. I do believe it’s the womyn folk who do the spotting thing.

  72. Gross.

    Even for here.

  73. Sex with women is inferior to snorting a mixture of coke and viagra and having random sex with a teenaged boy in a dirty men’s room. Our cultural betters have declared it so.

  74. Juice of half a grapefruit
    2 oz spiced rum
    1 oz vodka

    Shaken with ice and poured onto ice. Tastes okay to me, might be bitter to others. Name this shit.

  75. *victory*

    That’s a pretty strong drink, though. Might need some tinkering, although I love grapefruit and it’s currently out of favor with the drink making gods.

    Obama?

  90. Mmmm…lychee juice!!! Lychee Martini!!!

  91. Lychees are sweet and refreshing, but with no particular character. Sort of like agave juice.

  94. Leon, 2-3 small packets of Splenda a day with tea/coffee. Ok, or should I stop it?

    I would, if only to let your taste buds re-calibrated.

    That’s a pretty strong drink, though.

    It is, I dumped the second half of it into about 1c of iced tea and it’s perfect.

    Well that’s interesting.

    I’d probably do:

    1 oz spiced rum
    1 oz vodka
    2 oz grapefruit juice
    2 oz unsweetened tea, probably Earl Grey

    Shake, strain over ice.

    Garnish with star anise.

  98. Should MMM be recalibrated to have more of this?

  99. Do you know why they put limes in the neck of Corona bottles?

    To keep the flies out.

    You know what else flies like?

  100. Is that a real girl? Probably.

    With your tastebuds? No, you shouldn’t.

  102. I’ll try that, MJ, thanks.

  103. I’ll try that, MJ, thanks.

    No, thank you. I’ll probably make that this weekend. I need a name, though, and Possum Killing Dwarf is probably not a good idea.

  104. I never noticed what happens to Slim Pickens’ chair in this scene till just now, and I’ve seen this a hundred times.

  105. I watched the American Masters episode on Mel Brooks last night.

    Creepy.

  106. Possum Killing? Dwarf.

  107. Wisertastebuds.

  108. and Possum Killing Dwarf is probably not a good idea.

    Neither is “Your Mom”

  109. “Naughty Grapefuity Tea”

  110. “Underwear Pee Juice” would be a bad name. Probably.

  111. Sin Tax?

    Wiserbud is going to have a decent rant about the CT budget, I’m sure. It will tie in nicely. Plus, Cyn, so you know.

  128. Squats?

    Grapefruit or orange?

  129. Do those girly drinks come with umbrellas, or are they the ones with the cherry on the stem?

  130. Cherry. No question.

    There are several stories about the origin of the name Possum Kingdom for this part of the Brazos River valley. The most accepted version attributes the name to Ike Sablosky who settled in the region in the early nineteenth century.[8] Sablosky was a businessman, a Russian Jewish immigrant who came to America at the age of 13. He arrived in Mineral Wells, Texas from Indianapolis in 1905. Sablosky was suffering from stomach trouble and believed he was dying. Mineral Wells was then nationally famous as a health spa and Sablosky offered an employee of one of the spa hotels ten cents a day for ten days to be allowed to drink all of the mineral water he wanted. The employee accepted and Sablosky claimed that within ten days his stomach problems were cured.

    Sablosky then went into the fur and hide business, dealing in, among other things, possum pelts. His best suppliers of these hunted in the canyon of the Brazos and Sablosky began greeting them by saying, “Here are the boys from the Possum Kingdom.” Sablosky went on to be a prominent businessman in Dallas. Before his death he left millions of dollars to charity.

    So, Bitter Fruit got shot down?

  139. 3 parts liquor to 1 part what the fuck ever.

    I like this recipe.

    It’s surprising how well it works. If the liquor is sweetened, “what the fuck ever” can also just be “ice”.

  140. For whoever didn’t get Jimbro’s comment this morning about veins in his teeth.

    **mutters “whippersnappers”**

  141. “1 part what the fuck”

    GOOGLE IT

  146. I still have to try Zubrowka. I’m not even sure I can find it here.

  147. okay, so which one of you geniuses can help me figure out a networking problem?

  148. I know a few things about networking.

  149. okay, so which one of you geniuses can help me figure out a networking problem?

    I know some guys from the South End that can make things happen. You’re gonna need a pretty good-looking hooker and at least $15K.

  150. I don’t think he golfs.

    This is going to be hard.

  151. OH.
    Wait, never mind.
    I was thinking about somethingelse

  152. I just replaced two XP workstations with two Win7 systems. Now the only computer on the network that is still on XP is the server.

    Which just will not show up as part of the workgroup on the Win7 boxes. I ping the XP box and it gets found. I also can ping the Win7 boxes from the XP box. I was even able to briefly see one ofthe shared drives on the XP box and sent a shortcut of that to the desktop on one of the Win7 machines. But now th eonly way I can access any shared folder from that machine is to go thorugh that one shortcut.

    So it can connect to the XP box, but I cannot get it to show up in the Network Places. Nor can I even find it from the other Win7machine, even though I can ping it.

    Ideas?

  153. I don’t think he golfs.

    heh.

    I didn’t even golf when I golfed.

  154. OH.

  161. Time to update Wiser’s eulogy.

    heh. Joke between Lauraw and I.

    A few years back, I called her at the store and asked if she had a router and could I stop by and use it for a minute.

    She said “You are more than welcome to use our router, but I think Scott keeps it in the garage.”

    “Why the hell would you keep your router in the garage?”

    “Where else would you keep one?”

    “Ummmmm, I mean your network router.”

    “oooOOOOooooooo…..”

    “Is the man there? Can I speak to the man?”

    and we laughed.

  162. Blow out the XP and set up a Samba server.

    Not an option, as it’s not exactly a “server” per se. It’s the store owner’s computer where the main software is located, that I need to access to run on the other workstations.

  163. Tell your lib friends to read it and weep:

  164. Is it plugged in?

    Check to see that it’s plugged in.

  165. Hmm. not sure. XP had weird shared network services.

    You could try deinstalling the network from the XP device and reinstalling.

    It’s way better than your chances of landing a 15K hooker (do they make those?)

There’s a nice state park there where they don’t allow any of the deer to be shot and thus they’re way overcrowded with starving deer. You drive out there with a couple of loaves of bread or a bag of apples and you can keep your little girls busy for hours feeding the deer out of their hands. Cheap entertainment when you’re a poor mofo. Except for the girls crying all the way home cause we didn’t take one with us, it was great.

  169. Check for updates. They always fuck you with the updates.

  170. It’s way better than your chances of landing a 15K hooker (do they make those?)

    wait, the hooker is gonna cost $15k as well???

    this is gonna be more difficult that I thought.

    ahhh, fuckit. Why am I explaining this to someone who prefers super-expensive toys to actual work computers?

    So tell me, Bcoch, do you have a really cool skin for your Macbook?

  189. No. No they didn’t. I refuse to believe that happened.

    I kid you not.

    Bottom of the 7th, Sox down 8 to 2, runner on first with two outs and Bradley bunts.

  190. Wiser,
    Don’t know, but Anita has Win-7 on one of her VMs and has had trouble getting to the HP4550 color laser that is connected to my XP box. Her XP-vm has no problems. I have no experience with WIN-7.

    And, Where the fuck is the viola?
    She had to return the rental on Saturday and is now having withdrawal symptoms…

  191. >>>ahhh, fuckit. Why am I explaining this to someone who prefers super-expensive toys to actual work computers?
    So tell me, Bcoch, do you have a really cool skin for your Macbook?

    No, but you know what my MacBook can do? Run all of the software for the audio, video and light programs at church. Simultaneously. The one time we tried to simply install and run the software that controls the projection monitors on a PC…..BOOM. Fucking disaster.

    I’ve had PCs my whole life. Got a macbook about a year and a half ago….it’s not even close. Outperforms in every way.

  192. Oh,
    And this ginger dresses funny…

  193. >>>I kid you not.
    Bottom of the 7th, Sox down 8 to 2, runner on first with two outs and Bradley bunts.

    Everybody involved should be beaten to death by 10 yr olds with Louisville Sluggers.

    Was it a straight sac bunt, or was he trying bunt for a hit?

  194. Wow, Deadliest Catch is using the shutdown.

  195. I’m ordering a macbook for home this week.

    I’m tired of windows and linux can suck my left nut

  196. Baseball?
    Really?

    Where the hell is Car in?

    We need a carb, chicken, crackfat update.

  197. Carbs are bad, chicken is high in calories and ALL HAIL CRACKFAT.

    There ya go.

  198. Baseball?
    Really?

    Cardinals win!

  199. And, Where the fuck is the viola?

    On it’s way. Should be there really soon. Let me know if you don;t get it by Thursday and I’ll track it.

  200. Thank you, Dave, but I’ve been married for 25 years. Two of the n00bs are 23. I have shoes older than that.

  201. Was it a straight sac bunt, or was he trying bunt for a hit?

    Well, I’m pretty sure he was bunting for a hit, but that’s a really low percentage play, doncha think?

  202. >>>Well, I’m pretty sure he was bunting for a hit, but that’s a really low percentage play, doncha think?

    Depends. If done properly, it’s very tough to defend. But down 6 late in the game with 2 outs? That’s a sign of personal and team desperation.

  203. Got a macbook about a year and a half ago….it’s not even close. Outperforms in every way.

    Except for the fact that the POS software that we use, as well as thousands of other industry-specific apps that are currently in use all over the world, only run under Windows, you make an excellent point……

  204. He’s just trying to be a team player!

  205. That sounds really gay.
    Wait.
    Baseball.

  206. Baseball?
    Really?

    Really.

    I get a daily update on diets, workout regimens, current paleo status,, etc.

    I can make a comment re: baseball.

  207. >> Thank you, Dave, but I’ve been married for 25 years. Two of the n00bs are 23. I have shoes older than that.

    An aunt perhaps.

    A young sweet pretty aunt. You mighta married in late.

  208. >>>Except for the fact that the POS software that we use, as well as thousands of other industry-specific apps that are currently in use all over the world, only run under Windows, you make an excellent point……

    Now I got it.

    Honestly, that’s a failure on their part. My experience is no way no how exhaustive. There are literally billions of applications and programs that I’ve never even heard of, nor am I smart enough to figure out what they fucking do. BUT, since making the switch, I’ve never once, not even for a second missed Windows.

  209. Have I said how grateful I am that Rocketboy’s baseball season is over? I love baseball, but I hate a coach who’s losing 16-6 and insists on keeping his favorites in the game. Rocketboy made a crack about playing “center bench”. That hurt.

  210. >>>I get a daily update on diets, workout regimens, current paleo status,, etc.
    I can make a comment re: baseball.

    You forgot gardening.

    *shudder*

    I played ball all the way through college and coached for several years after that. I’m always up for baseball talk.

  211. Honestly, that’s a failure on their part.

    POS = Point of Sale

    And no…. Considering how much it costs to develop and support software, it is silly to expect a company to code to an OS that has maybe 10% of the market.

    The smart companies are writing brower-based apps now, even working towards browser-independent apps, which is the smartest move. But it is potentially deadly for some companies to spend the resources to entirely re-code their legacy apps when they can simply require Windows.

    It may not allow fanbois to run their apps on their totes awesome Macbooks, but it is what it is.

    Notice how there is an application to emulate Windows for the Apple OS, but no Apple emulator for the Windows OS.

  212. Windows is fucking with you Wiser. Little gremlins in the machine are laughing their ass off right now.

    Penelope tried baking with Stevia. It was ghastly…………

  213. Windows is fucking with you Wiser.

    Oh.. I got that……

    But I refuse to let it win…..

  214. Little gremlins in the machine are laughing their ass off right now.

    Must have fed them after midnight

  215. Wiser,
    I was heavily involved with 2K-server and worked on XP for two years. I could make them dance & sing. When Microsoft started working on Vista, I hopped off the bus.
    The OS was spending so many cycles on DRM, as opposed to actually running your applications, I bailed.
    I have never touched Win7 or 8. I figured that I was so old that I didn’t need that stress anymore.
    I was wrong.
    Now, I’m totally ignorant of those two, but they have security problems with the older OSs.
    I should have paid more attention. The security in 7 & 8 is different enough from XP to cause problems, and I find myself unable to help the folks in your situation that I could have helped before.
    My fault, totally.
    I am sorry…

    Roamy!
    I laugh that you have been married for 25 years!
    Congratulations!
    Many folks I know have not made it that far.
    We’ve been together for 45 years.
    I look at someone like Kate Upton and realize that she could be my granddaughter.
    As the old cliche goes:
    Sometimes I feel like an 18 year-old, but may God help me if I ever get caught with one…

  216. Okay, up until tonight, I actually like the HoverHand add-on.

    Until my mouse accidentally stopped for a moment on the picture of the monster on tonight’s ONT.

    *uninstalls HoverHand with one hand while pouring bleach into my eyesockets with the other.

  217. All excellent points wiser, but I’ll simply say this…I know tons of people that have switched from PC to Mac, none the other way around.

    You couldn’t pay me to go back.

    PC/Windows has a huge jump on Apple/Mac. Apple/Mac was pretty much dead in the 90s. Windows ran wild with little competition and everything was built around them.

  218. My fault, totally.
    I am sorry…

    WHAT??? YOU COULD HAVE SOLVED MY PROBLEM AND YOU ARE USING “lazy. sorry.” AS YOUR EXCUSE?!?!?!?

    bastard.

  219. POS is point of sale

    It’s funny how often I see POS and think point of sale instead of piece of shit.

    Well it’s funny to me

  220. There is a space station module called Kibo, and I think, “knowledge in, bullshit out” every time. My apologies to the Japanese.

  221. ….played ball through college……

    Heh,

  222. Windows ran wild with little competition and everything was built around them.

    Macs may be better, but they have a loooong way to go to convert me.

    I like having control over my environment and my hardware. Until I can build my own Mac, fuck ’em.

    And it does not take a massive computer nerd mind-set to not get fucked by Windows. Just takes common sense.

    I have no problem with Apple fanbois, other than their sense of superiority.

  223. >>>I have no problem with Apple fanbois, other than their sense of superiority.

    Oh I think it’s the better product, but I’m not all fanboi hipster wait in line for 30 hours douche about it.

    Now, if we were talking SEC football, that’s a different story.

  224. It’s not superiority so much as an emotional attachment. Kinda similar to Starbucks. They (apple) sell technology as an experience. A setting.

    I have both worlds, Windows dominates the business world (where I get my money). Linux and Solaris have forged in on the back end (SYWM).

    But for personal stuff and sound stuff which is where BC is coming from, the tech geek musician types have developed some pretty remarkable stuff. Which I use too, it drives all our sound system gizmos.

    Can you run a 5 BB business ERP on the Mac OS? No.

    Can you enjoy the simplicity of it and the personal engineering at home? Sure.

  225. I used to work with a coupla guys that swore by Apple products in the early 1990’s. I vowed then and there to never dip my toes in those waters.

  226. Penelope bought into all the Mac hype about 10 years ago. When it came time for a new computer we got a Mac. Worst pos ever. Had it for a year, then the motherboard crashed and they wanted $650 for a new one. A new, fast pc was cheaper. IPads and IPods are good.

  227. We’re totally bi-computer here
    We believe in peace and love and are tolerant of Mother Gaia and all the wonderful Operating Systems who dwell on Her.

    Except those damn Linux people
    Fucking Sodomites..

  228. Obligatory.

    http://tinyurl.com/lh8px3o

  229. I love macs, and even my family doesn’t let me talk about crackfat.

  230. Problem I have with Mac vs. Windows systems:

    Windows:

    Need more memory? add memory.

    need better graphics? install a new graphics card.

    Need more HD space? install a larger hard drive

    Need more USB ports? install a new card.

    Macs:

    Need more memory? Buy a new computer

    need better graphics? Buy a new computer

    Need more HD space? Buy a new computer

    Need more USB ports? Buy a new computer

  231. We’re totally bi-computer here

    Kinky.

  232. Except those damn Linux people
    Fucking Sodomites..

    heathen.

    (comment made from old WinPC running Ubuntu)

  233. Need more USB ports? Buy a new computer

    And, Need a new battery? Buy a new iPad, iPod, etc.

    No thank you. I remember the good ole days of physically flipping IRQ switches. Such sweet satisfaction.

  234. Wow, Deadliest Catch is using the shutdown.

    Would you care to elaborate? I used to like the shit out of that show but I don’t know where you’re coming from with this comment.

  235. I remember the good ole days of physically flipping IRQ switches. Such sweet satisfaction.

    Is that not totally hawt talk, or what?!

  236. Except those damn Linux people
    Fucking Sodomites..

    Heh, that made me smile.

  237. That’s sorta fair but not really fair wiser. It’s about applicability of purpose (which is why I used the 5BB ERP example)

    All business purposes are moving away from local computing power into cloud computing power, which is massive.

    It’s no longer bout the device it’s about connectivity to far larger resources (which are largely UNIX orphans and Windows based)

  238. Luddites…

  239. IRQ switches were all TRUE NOT TRUE after guesses when you made a chip and forgot something

  240. You were saying Wiser?

    I assume you can buy that additional memory from anyone and not just Apple….

    Oh… wait… OSX is now Linux-based…..

    Hmmm…..

  241. Wow, Deadliest Catch is using the shutdown.

    Would you care to elaborate?

    They started out the season waiting by the dock, because of the government shutdown. Keith Coburn was on CSPAN appearing before Congress in the middle of it.

    Lots of “I’m gonna lose everything if they don’t get the government going”.

    They stopped before it got really bad. But I was bracing for the worst when it started.

  242. Keep moving those goal posts big guy.

    Like I said, Windows has a huge head start on Apple, but Apple’s tech and products, for me at least, are far and away better.

  243. OSX has always been UNIX, but Linux now? Interesting.

  244. All business purposes are moving away from local computing power into cloud computing power, which is massive.

    Like I said…. browser-based apps vs. OS-specific apps.

  245. IRQ switches were all TRUE NOT TRUE after guesses when you made a chip and forgot something

    Yeah, no sloppy drinking while configuring back then.

    But you could be when you have to call Apple for help, so there’s that.

  246. Can’t you just go to the Apple Kabaa for help?

  247. Keep moving those goal posts big guy.

    So.. who do you buy the memory from and how much more expensive is it than Win memory?

  248. The real action these days is mobile device OS. And Apple is owning this like a boss except for one little thing.. security.

    *Hands Cyn a punch down tool for a 64 block*

    Also I don’t think OSX is Linux.. still UNIX

  249. Can’t you just go to the Apple Kabaa for help?

    Kum ba yah

  250. Windows is kicking the shit out of Apple in the cloud, but Apple isn’t going after that part of the business.

  251. >>>So.. who do you buy the memory from and how much more expensive is it than Win memory?

    No idea and not the point.

    You said to perform any sort of upgrade on a Mac, you simply had to buy a new one. That’s not true.

    Now it’s “well yeah, but….”

  252. *Hands Cyn a punch down tool for a 64 block*

    *fans self, has to sit down*

  253. http://www.oempcworld.com/support/OEM/buying_the_right_Mac_Memory.htm

    “A one gigabyte memory module for an Apple PowerBook G4 costs $300 at Apple Store, but only costs $105 at OEMPCWorld. The only major difference is that it is not being sold under the Apple name and logo. Even for the newer MacBook Pro with Intel Core Duo 2, a gigabyte module costs $175 at the Apple Store, but only $65 here.”

  254. >> You said to perform any sort of upgrade on a Mac, you simply had to buy a new one. That’s not true.

    eeehhhh.. it’s kinda true. I barely got Snow Leopard on a five year old iMac. Maverick ain’t happening on this platform.

    They cheat and hide processor ops in memory.

  255. You said to perform any sort of upgrade on a Mac, you simply had to buy a new one. That’s not true.

    *searches for peripherals for Macs….

    *finds a few

    *sells gold to afford them

  256. Dave,
    I’ve totally got the “Punch-Down” tool.
    When we built this place, I ran 2K feet of CAT5-6 around the house. There are jacks every where. There is a 24-port switch in the wiring-closet, below the routers. This house is totally “Hard Wired”, no “wi-fi”…

  257. 1 gig memory, Crucial, Windows, $19.99

  258. hold the wire just so Cyn, when you ram the tool into the block it makes a very satisfying “cut” sound and the wire pieces fly.. keep your glasses on

  259. That Wifi is kinda handy for the phones and the iPads though, Chrisp.

  260. WIser makes another point, the price/performance ratio on Windows vs. Macs isn’t even close. You’re paying 5x for the hardware.

    I hated saying that.

  261. Glasses on… CHECK!

  262. *thud*

  263. >>>WIser makes another point, the price/performance ratio on Windows vs. Macs isn’t even close. You’re paying 5x for the hardware.
    I hated saying that.

    Which is likely a result of the massive headstart Windows/PCs had. And the fact that the fanbois will pay anything for an Apple product, while PCs are a dime a dozen.

    I’m just saying that as much as there is blind fanboism for Apple, there’s an equal amount of blind hate for it.

  264. Jay,
    We’re old. We have no “Smart Phones”, nor iAnything, nor are we likely to.
    We just don’t give a flying phuck…

  265. Which is likely a result of the massive headstart Windows/PCs had.

    *giggles*

  266. Well you’re right, there’s a certain amount of emotional attachment to the Apple world that doesn’t exist in the PC world. I’ve seen this since the first Macintosh’s came out.

    Kinda like my Starbuck’s ref, they aren’t selling coffee so much as an experience. Microsoft stumbles upon their success (witness their conversion of Windows 8 to Windows 7.SUPER)

    Anyway I’m not interested in this so much now because I’m showing Cyn how to punch down phone wiring.

  267. …phone wiring… riiiiiiiight, yes; of course

  268. I’m just saying that as much as there is blind fanboism for Apple, there’s an equal amount of blind hate for it.

    I have no hate for Apple. I have an iPhone. That device has changed my life.

    But I’ve also attempted to work on Macs, ever since they were first introduced.

    The lack of options has always been a problem for me. Plus, as I mentioned above, it’s about market share.

    It seems that AppleOS users are more h8ful, since they’re the ones who are so upset that the rest of the world doesn’t accept their superiorty.

  269. Who was it at AoS that reminded us to never punch down?

  270. Twisted pair is usually 22 to 24 AWG.. ok look you have to really mash this thing in Cyn until it pops.. it has a recoil mechanism that cuts and seats the wire in the panel

  271. Ed Shultz

  272. >>>It seems that AppleOS users are more h8ful, since they’re the ones who are so upset that the rest of the world doesn’t accept their superiority.

    Easy way to fix that…..

  273. Recoil…. yes… oh my.

  274. Who was it at AoS that reminded us to never punch down?

    someguy

  275. Apple had the head start in PCs. Most user interfaces are descendants of the original Mac interface. They elected to keep all the peripheral and software in-house, instead of allowing others to develop for them.

    I think they chose poorly.

  276. I lost some zzz’s last night, gonna go see if I can find them.

    X’s and O’s to you all.

  277. misread the question

    night all!

  278. I’m out as well. See you folks later.

  279. Wiser, I hope you have tried the basics, but here is a link anyway
    http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-7/share-files-and-printers-between-windows-7-and-xp/

  280. Night everyone!

  281. I started watching OTH again. Man, Sophia Bush was sooooo cute.

  282. Wiser, I hope you have tried the basics, but here is a link anyway

    Thanks, Tushar. Looks simple, but I think I tried all of that.

    grrrrrrr…

    nite, y’all

  283. Crap! I was at work and missed baseball talk! Pujols hit HR500.

  284. Royals won again tonight, Oso.

  285. Hey, Oso, other than because of the copious amount of drugs that were ingested there, why was the music so kick ass at Woodstock? Witness this as yet one of countless examples:

  286. I’ve been watching some highlights from the K. Great baseball being played.

  287. Our Royals are pretty encouraging for us this year.

  288. Last time I was in KC for baseball, Brett was still playing and they hadn’t converted to grass.

  289. Me: Trumbo still has his Angels cap on FB. Dan: You follow Trumbo???? Me: No, Trout. Trumbo just popped up as “Like Trout”. Fin.

  290. Ugh,

    Today was brutal. San Fran – Vegas – Chicago. Then I had to hop on a ‘Barbie Jet’ (50-seater) to get home.

    Winds in Vegas were horrific. First time since Afghanistan I’ve seen a weather warning for for blowing dust. You could actually smell it in the cockpit at 4000′. The landing was exciting, but successful.

    Oso, ABQ police shoot anyone or anally violate them today?

    What the hell is going on down there?

  291. Shot a judges daughter yesterday.

  292. Anal probes are for southern NM. Up here, we just shoot ’em. Google John Hyde.

  293. Judge’s meth head car stealing pull a gun on the APD daughter.

  294. Mayor Marty capped payouts at $150K. Since then, cops shoot, city pays, whatever. You shoot one white hobo too many…DoJ gets all up in your grill.

  295. RL friend responded to a mental health pickup. 18 yr old came at him with a knife. He shot her. Every time this BS comes up, her family is on the news and whining. I don’t think cops should do mental health pickups. Families should take them in…oh wait…you’re afraid of the psycho nut jobs and keep putting cops at risk. FU.

  296. I hope that our cops never go “Louisville” in our worldview.

  297. Dan thinks it is funny that I call people “Hobos”

  298. Oso,

    In my old Air Force days I had a lot of fun in ABQ. I don’t thing the ‘mainline’ United flys there anymore.

    Sad. It is a fun town.

    Not as much fun as Alamogordo, but close.

    Holloman AFB *shudder.

  299. We get little United hoppers to Denver. I forget the name, I just know “Small”

  300. Lots of RL AF friends went through Alamo. Mmmm…German and Messican food.

  301. The Luftwaffe guys were awesome. That town has a weird mix of Germans, AF peeps and NM yokels.

    I was there a few years ago in the C-9 and we went to country bar.

    I was the only guy on the crew who knew how to dance, so I had a great time, rest of the guys/gals just drank.

    NTTAWWT.

    I do remember that the Germans fly in their own beer. I’ve been to their bar on base. It’s in the squadron building and it is really cool.

  302. By saying *dance* I meant the two-step.

    Line dancing still baffles me.

  303. Two-step and the weird Alamo golf course.

  304. I kinda prefer flyin’ in the little ERJ145s. Sit on the port side by the emergency exit. It’s a window seat AND an aisle seat with plenty of leg room. Roller bags get gate checked at no expense. Hops aren’t more than 2 or so hours, so I can have a smoke at the layover.

    //shoots an ABQ hobo

  305. OK, here we go, back in the day, I caught a flight to ABQ on a plane, where they weighed my luggage and asked how much I weighed before seating me. Are you fucking kidding me??? I H8 small planes. I really H8 Rugby.

  306. Private citizens get to torch hobos. Cops get to shoot.

  307. Oso, when I was a kid, the airline serving my home town… the first passenger to boar rode in the co-pilot seat.

  308. AUGH!!!!! Did the co-pilot turn around and talk to you like ours did? Did he have a cooler of sodas for the trip?

  309. Most of my childhood trips were Greyhound, until we had to fly from Sea/Tac to Taipei.

  310. Oso, what I’m saying is, I rode in the co-pilot seat. In the old days, back in the 70s, early 80s, you could still wear the headset and talk to the pilot on intercom.

  311. OMG! WHY????? I H8 small planes!!!! Actually sat with a real astronaut on the flight from Denver to Sea/Tac when I was a kid. Too drugged up to know who. Dad got autograph. I puked on him in spite of the good drugs.

  312. This is the derp at the edge of the road,
    There’s nothing disturbed, all the windows are closed,
    I guess you were right, when we talked in the heat,
    There’s no room for the weak, no room for the weak.

  313. The pilot I usually rode with was a guy named Gerry Patterson. He was an early A-6 guy, and one hell of an aviator. After he retired from the Navy, he was the chief pilot of the local puddle jumper airline. His wife was my guidance counselor in HS.

    Unlike a lot of small plane airlines, that hire guys that have essentially zero experience, Gerry and the other guys at Harbor were all folks with at least 20 years experience.

  314. Too soon, Sean, too soon. RL friend asked me to admin a page for alums we have lost. BTW Pujols looked really good today.

  315. Activate Dadmode

  316. Whoa! Dadmode is fast.

  317. Wakey swipe Wakey

  318. Pickled egg post soon to be replaced with the dude post. This place is funny…I need to add try making pickled eggs, making pemmican and buying a smoker to my life list. Not adding crackfat to the list though.

  319. Jeez, local news is doing an interview with a funeral home guy about cremation. C’mon! Get to the weather!!!

  320. I’ve never heard of this syndrome

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

    described with that term until I read this cartoon:

    http://www.dieselsweeties.com/archive/3541

    We’ve all met a few people like that I’m sure.

  321. You should try Crackfat. It’s awesome.

  322. I will experience it vicariously through you.

    For Roamy: http://www.lefserecords.com/new-release-space-project/

    No idea what it sounds like but at least the concept is interesting.

  323. For XBrad:

  324. Workie workie

  325. No one in the house wanted to hear about my workout last night. It’s so weird.

    My middle child likes to pretend her track practices are harder. I just want her to come with me once.

  326. HHD!
