  1. Pile the awards over there. J’ames don’t have time for dat.

  2. I’m not sure any poat has sucked this badly in quite awhile.

    Well done.

  3. Isn’t twitter “old” yet?

  4. What’s that whooshing sound?

  5. Wow, killed it with a poat.

  6. At this rate, it’s a long way to the Friday boobs

  7. Good morning, peeps.

  8. Urgh, another smoky day. We never used to have smoke from forest fires here, but the last 5 or 6 years we’ve gotten some really bad days. They even had a smoke forecast on the weather this morning. Nothing really bad so far this year.

  9. Morning? I’ve already had lunch.

  10. **cranks Zeppelin**

  11. Only one Salt Fucker from Chad has visited H2. Fucking Chads are as bad as Kyles.

  12. I was dealing with the laundry room. Doing all my inside chores with the hope that it’s nice this afternoon.

  13. I was dealing with the laundry room. Doing all my inside chores with the hope that it’s nice this afternoon.

    By saying that, you do realized that you’ve ensured that it rains this afternoon, right?

  14. Work is sucking hefty sausage today.

  15. Thunderstorms in my area by 6pm.

  16. Well, it’s raining right now, so I don’t really know how I’m making the situation worse in any way.

  17. Whore mouth, Leon. Shut it.

  18. Who is Unka Dave?

    *gives Unka Dave the stink-eye*

  19. Sink is almost entirely back together, aside from one piece of PVC that was clearly hacked into position. Taking it apart has made that extremely obvious, and it’s clearly why we had a water leak down there.

  20. Torch it up, PVC can bend.

  21. So can your mom.

  22. We never used to have smoke from forest fires here, but the last 5 or 6 years we’ve gotten some really bad days.

    Global warming. Duh.

    *waits next to mailbox for Nobel Prize*

  23. It’s the right shape, but it needs a connector lip at both ends, and it’s only got it at one end.

  24. It’s the right shape, but it needs a connector lip at both ends, and it’s only got it at one end.

    that’s what she said.

  25. There are saw marks. This is the piece they had, and they cut it to fit, then just sort of wedged it in place and hoped gravity would fix everything.

    Asstards.

  26. Long morning in bed. Sinus headache. Makes it hard to concentrate on my evil plans.

    But work we much!

  27. Any word on your little cutiebug this morning, Master Chief? Sweet pictures of her yesterday :)

  28. Also, goomermel everyone.

  29. You better get going, laura. M’chle needs a lobster dinner.

    Chop chop!

  30. Woo hoo! The plastic surgeon in the room before me ordered the wrong size boob implants and had to cancel his case! Which means I get to use that room earlier than scheduled to fix a busted ankle and repair a toe tendon (different kids—that combination would be too much misery for one kid to bear on his own).

  31. *waves goodbye to the flat chested woman crying for bigger bewbs*

  32. Jimbro, the question is:

    Were the implants too small, or too big?

    If too big, why did she reschedule?

  33. *waves goodbye to the flat chested woman crying for bigger bewbs*

    You are a monster.

  34. Jimbro,

    Was she cute?

  35. Too small! He wanted 500 to 600 cc and all they had were 250’s.

  36. Seems like something you might want to get lined up in advance of the surgery.

  37. The waving part was in jest Alex. As much of a moron as I am here I do keep it together at work…for the most part.

    In all cerealness, she was probably someone who had a mastectomy and then was coming in for a reconstruction later on.

    The guy who does the strippers and aspiring models does his work at a surgicenter across town. He gets cash money up front for his melons.

  38. Can’t you just blow them up a little more? Seems wasteful.

  39. Is it even possible to get a Material Safety Data Sheet on a chemical produced nearly a hundred years ago?? This shipment is kicking my ass. I’m putting this issue in the buyer’s lap. Not worth getting fined or shut off.

  40. It doesn’t sound easy

  41. I think he wrote the wrong # down Pups. I overheard him talking to his PA and she called the office for them to look at the form. He was wise enough to double check before she got her anesthesia.

    I always double check my implants (metallic plates, screws, rods, etc) before the kid gets anesthesia. Shit happens, people mess up, equipment reps get delayed by traffic or weather, FedEx can’t fly and so on.

  42. Jimbro,

    I figured you didn’t actually wave. That sucks about her being mastectomy patient. :( My cousin is preparing to go through with that and I know that she’s having a hard time with it.

  43. The plastic surgeon is doing his last few years here after being a program director somewhere down south for a long time. He’s really good and the hospital has him on salary to do all the plastic surgery cases the private practice guys don’t want to do. He does a lot of chronic wound management, skin grafts and rotational flaps to cover soft tissue defects.

    Post mastectomy women can have a rotational muscle flap called a TRAM flap or a silicone or saline implant. As a med student I learned to sew skin on TRAM flap cases and always thought the implants would be a hell of a lot easier.

  44. Jimbro,
    I remember the only bone related scare we had. When the kids were barely a year old, I was holding one kid’s hand, and he suddenly tried to wiggle free. Before I could react, he had hurt his wrist. The hour and half from that point to the bone doc telling us that is is just a sprain was horrific for me.

    You are doing God’s work.

  45. Someday when I have more time I’ll tell you a story about one of the plastic surgeons I worked with as a med student.

    Here are some key words to whet your appetite till then: Former NFL player, Afro-American makeover, 60 Minutes, Lawsuit, Disgrace.

    Time to actually work now!

  46. (You’re making me blush Tushar)

  47. Jimbro, professional question (on account of I am doing a healthcare supply chain consulting project for a recently merged $6.5BB 28 hospital healthcare system which I shouldn’t name wink wink).

    Do you usually have a vendor rep in the OR when you operate? Is his/her function to support the surgical team with information or direction about the device or use of tools in the equipment tray? Is that valuable to you (and does it improve patient outcomes?)

    By my calculatin for hips shoulders and knees these guys are putting double digits into the cost of goods sold. Even though it’s consignment and most hospitals don’t pay for a device until you stick it in somebody, there’s still cost associated and somebody got to pay for it.

    signed, curious

  48. Hey Dave, did you by chance get a Biomet knee? My brother’s in-laws work for them.

    He gets cash money up front for his melons
    =========
    Nicely put. Bewbs = cash money up front. No offense, CaRin.

  50. Jeez, pepe, Car in isn’t a stripper, she’s into crackfat.

  51. Stryker

  52. Pups is having one of those days.

  53. I thought Cari n just waitressed at a strip club, which explained the horror stories about some of her coworkers.

  54. Barky is throwing baseballs again:

  55. Don’t his press people know enough NOT to let him throw baseballs like that?

    Like Jean Francois Querie and the football.

  56. So which is better – saline or silicone?

    And I’ve heard that you can sometimes make just as much money (if not more) waitressing at one of those clubs as the dancers do…..

  57. “waitressing”

  58. He wanted 500 to 600 cc and all they had were 250′s

    Those can still be fun when you take them off-road.

  59. A friend posted this on FB.

    http://tinyurl.com/nen34bk

    I commented that it says more to me about the competency of the person doing the nominating.

    I’m pretty sure I’ll be called racist.

  60. Yeah, but just how much off-roading is done with some of those older models?

    And you’re having to completely replace those parts; it ain’t an upgrade…..

  61. I commented that it says more to me about the competency of the person doing the nominating.

    And/or the competency of the person being nominated.

  62. Yeah, but just how much off-roading is done with some of those older models?

    You keep them lubed up properly and they can last a lot longer than you think.

    And you’re having to completely replace those parts; it ain’t an upgrade…..

    True, but as long as the basic frame is still in decent condition, it should be able to handle the rebuild with no problems.

  63. Either one of those boobs would have more volume than the engine displacement on my old Honda.

    Sink’s fixed. Still need to test the dishwasher connection, but I don’t think I fucked that up.

  64. Jimbro, professional question: what’s the plastic surgery guy use to clean up spilled silicone? I’ve got a little extra here and there and scrubbing isn’t going very fast.

  65. *not gonna ask*

  66. Look, I’m a man. Sometimes, you start spraying sticky stuff and it doesn’t always go where you intended.

  67. leon got new bewbs? Cool!

  68. Chris Crocker went into gay porn, bareback-style.

  69. Sometimes, you start spraying sticky stuff and it doesn’t always go where you intended.

    Context. It’s that important.

  70. Is that hair gel?

  71. Beasn, 1. Why did you think you had to share that.

    2. How do you know?

  72. Leon, can you send me a picture of what is under your sink?

    “Connector lip at both ends” doesn’t make sense.

  73. Under counter porn.

  74. CaRin should rock some big fake bewbs at the restaurant for a week and see if the tips go up. Ahem, monetary tips that is. ;)

  75. “Connector lip at both ends” doesn’t make sense.

    There’s a reason. It didn’t need that, but the part poked down into the P-trap was too short, so it wasn’t connecting properly. Went with an extra inch and the problem is solved.

    An extra inch is also that important.

  76. can you send me a picture of what is under your sink?

    That’s a new euphemism that I’ve never heard.

  77. An extra inch is also that important.

    That’s what your mom said.

  78. If you have watched the movie ‘Human centipede’, connector lips are only on one end.

  79. I understand what you were looking at now.

  80. Today was nuts.
    On top of the regular problems, there were pools, hot tubs and boats that needed fixing.

    Winter is a mean bitch.

  81. Sheesh – I think some trigger warnings might be in order here.

  82. If you’re not watching “Penny Dreadful”, you should be! Excellent Showtime series. It’s only 2 episodes in, so getting caught up will be easy.

  83. Downspout connector, Scott. It’s normally cut to fit, and they had cut it so short that it could only connect if the cross-piece to the other sink drain was lower than the P-trap, which would mean a stagnant puddle at the bottom of the other elbow.

  90. Some tailpieces have nipples.
    The nipples need clamps and hose.

  92. I’ve never been so happy to wash a dish.

  93. Beasn, 1. Why did you think you had to share that.
    2. How do you know?

    1. the picture of Crocker up yonder reminded me of a conversation at a gay blog. He’s better looking when he looks like a guy, btw.

    2. dude on the gay blog, who shares goings on in the gay community. Also his bio says he did gay pron.

  94. Why are you reading gay blogs, beasn?

  96. So you don’t have to?

  97. 3) Who is Chris Crocker?

  98. An extra inch is also that important.

    How you doin’?

    (Really? Nobody did that before now? It’s like I don’t know you people…..)

  99. Working with a client and a contractor to determine cabling distance for a small project, female client estimated 250ft, male contractor 300ft.

    Client: “In my experience, men tend to overestimate distances more than women…”

    *crickets*

    Me: “How about I come back with a measuring wheel?”

  100. It’s a conservative site and they were discussing the gay mafia and how even a lot of people on gay lefty forums do not think barebacking while taking a certain medication that keeps their HIV whatever loads low is not a good idea. (taking these meds give the gay community a false sense of security that they can continue their sleezy lifestyles without protections – as a result, keep infecting others)

  101. Teresa, Chris Crocker of the ‘Leave Brittany Alone!’, fame.

    Youtube it.

  102. I read about that earlier Xbrad. This is the first I heard he was Crew Chief. They wouldn’t open the bay for touch and go practice, would they?

    Awful.

  103. Hi Beasnes!

  104. They usually keep the back ramp at least partly open for touch and goes, as it gives a better look at what’s under the bird. They also usually wear a monkey strap, so who knows what happened.

  105. Well, they should just all infect one another and get it over with.

  106. I’m pretty sure having anal sex with a person of un-verified HIV status counts as an low-time-preference activity, regardless of medications.

  107. Speaking of wing nuts, my local state senator says:

    Dear Geoffrey,

    Human trafficking is a modern-day form of slavery, widespread throughout the United States and prevalent right here in Michigan. Our state’s proximity to the Canadian border and numerous waterways does leave Michigan vulnerable to an increased incidence of
    human trafficking, but there is something we can do to combat this unspeakable crime.

    Seriously?

  108. That seems tremendously unlikely, Hotspur. Most of the hookers in MI are locals, even at the “Asian Spa”.

  109. Well, it’s Rebecah Warren, so, you know…

    She planned on a little run for John Dingell’s seat, but I think Debbie came over and slapped the shit out of her.

  110. I mean, is someone kidnapping girls from Quebec and dragging them here to work in brothels?

  111. Hi Puppeh!

    http://tinyurl.com/nzfu462

  112. I suppose they could be flying them into Canada and then dragging them over the bridge/tunnel, but good heavens, isn’t that a normal part of border security enforcement?

  113. …..but there is something we can do to combat this unspeakable crime.

    Increase border security and send anyone who is here illegally back from whence they came?

  114. Chris Crocker of the ‘Leave Brittany Alone!’, fame.

    Oh, that…..person. (I was never sure if that was a guy or a gal, and I didn’t care enough to go find out)

    Well, his/her 15 minutes of fame should just about be over by now, huh? Maybe he/she can do a double feature with Levi Johnson next.

  115. Oh come on! Canadians over here? We can’t even understand them!

  116. Perhaps that politician is talking about Dearbornistan, but can’t bring themselves to mention the I- or the M-word.

    What do I win?

  117. The whole time I was over there, I was worried that they would notice that I wasn’t one of them. True story.

  118. I believe it. A lot of prostitution rings will move girls from city to city to avoid law enforcement and to follow business. They’re not always illegal aliens either. A lot of abused women and children in the mix.

  119. Trafficking is a real issue. There’s the “I-5 shuffle” from San Diego all the way up to Vancouver, BC. Lotta Mexicans, lotta Asians, and as Colex noted, not an insignificant number of Americans.

  120. Here’s a study by the Urban Institute estimating the size and structure of the underground commercial sex economy in the US.

  121. Huh… my employer has suddenly decided that we need CV’s with headshots.

    You guys think I could get away with using my avatard?

  122. And why am I so uncomfortable with this whole idea??

  123. Done gardening for today. Not it’s time to put on the running skort.

  127. The SLGs are all that I own, X.

    It’s just… I’ve never photographed well and I’d rather that my investigative skill and report writing expertise speak for itself, rather than some stupid looking passport shot of me.

  128. These will be distributed to our clients and used at tradeshows apparently.

    I’m really, really not comfortable with this at all. They buy my expertise, not my persona, when they cut me a paycheck. Someone convince me otherwise… GO!

  129. Use the coconut picture.

  130. A leather bustier is always office-appropriate.

    Probably. I know every time I see it you could get away with murder.

    Will they protect you if a stalker contacts you? No.

  137. Send them the tigerlady picture.

  138. You’re going to be very popular

  139. Afternoon.

  140. Dave, we have equipment vendors of all types in the OR. For me it’s primarily the rep from Synthes Depuy for spine stuff. When I have a straight forward spine and a good scrub tech he has very little to do. When I have a tough case or a scrub tech who doesn’t work on my type of spines often, he is indispensable. In the latter case I can focus on my work and he can help the tech get the right thing at the right time. He keeps the equipment in stock and ensures we have the right equipment in advance and that it’s sterilized. This is really the job of the hospital but since he has a financial interest in making things work, he does. Same for total joints, laparoscopic instruments, etc.

    Some of the stuff is on consignment but, by definition, is consumed by using it. The nurses fill out charge sheets which are used to replace inventory. He has to double check all that both on paper and with the instrument sets and ferret out the reason for discrepancies.

    Back when I first started I took call for all of ortho including adults. Frequently there would be an uninsured person needing surgery in the middle of the night. I was in private practice then and it galled me that everyone was getting paid but me. Even the equipment rep, at home in bed, was making money off the implants I used. I’m on salary now so it’s not a big deal. Plus I’m slightly more mellow as I age.

    With healthcare reimbursement being squeezed tighter than citrus in the drink of the week, the reps will in turn be squeezed. As we transition from fee for service (procedures pay) to managed/value care (death panels) we will be rewarded for doing less. I’m hoping things turn around before too much of this disaster comes true.

  141. Send a picture of Alvin Greene.

  142. All of our implants and equipment is being trimmed down as time goes by. We’re members of a thing called the Northeast Purchase Coalition which groups hospitals together and reaches a decision on one or two types of implants for purchase at all the hospitals to save money.

    https://www.vha.com/Networking/SupplyNetworks/Documents/Profile_NortheastPurchasingCoalition.pdf

  143. Nothing today. I did learn there are 1400 hours scheduled for my department for the next 28 days.

  144. Thanks Jimbro. Are you trauma ortho then? Probably a slightly different deal than joint replacement.

    Most providers squeezed cost by giving one vendor the lion’s share of the product mix. I don’t think there’s any more blood in that turnip. I know some are seeing if they can rework and reduce the number of trays (if you self-sterilize in the hospital it’s like $50/tray).

  145. And why am I so uncomfortable with this whole idea??

    You shouldn’t be. I’ve met you, SLG and all.

  146. I do a mix of everything for kids primarily. I operate on a few adults with special needs every so often.

    The number one consumable I use that costs the hospital money is pedicle screws. They have been leaning on us hard to use a simpler version of the one we were using with a savings of about $500/screw. For a short curve that can be 12 screws and for a long curve it could be 20-24.

    I see where they’re coming from and both me and my partner have worked to decrease our costs without compromising outcomes. Sometimes we save money, sometimes we don’t. Fuck it, my obligation is to the patient.

  147. *cough*

    stalkers

    *cough*

  148. Amputate.

    No screws.

    PROFIT.

  149. I should be a consultant.

  150. Jimbro,
    Since you have an “in” with the Synthes-rep, get him to comp you a Pro-disc-L, and put it in L5-S1 for me.
    That’d be great!
    Thanks in advance…

  151. I’ll see what I can work out for you. Do mind a slightly used one?

    I’m trying to think if the ortho spine surgeon we had here ever did one before she left. We have 5 neurosurgeons doing spines now but they don’t do prosthetic disks.

  152. *Packs ketamine darts*

    I can anesthetize.

  153. We can build you a spine.

  154. Just got next months flying schedule. Some good, a lot of bad.

    A few Mexico City layovers (ugh), but a really nice Punta Cana and St. Thomas mixed in.

    The stateside layovers are Boston, Portland, LA, Newark, and Orlando.

    Besides Newark and Mexico City, no complaints.

  155. But Scott, amputation is a one shot deal. With bone stuff, they can draw it out for years. Unless they amputate just a little at a time.

  156. The majestic dance of the American Woodcock.

  157. Let us know when Boston happens. There are about 15 idiots within 100 miles of that awful place.

  158. >> Fuck it, my obligation is to the patient.

    I have noticed when you speak with doctors, it’s better to lead with “improving patient outcomes” than “saving money”.

    But you also have to keep the doors open. Otherwise nobody gets fixt.

  159. Outcome is code for amputation.

  160. So here is a business I heard about today.

    http://www.diedinhouse.com/

    I think it’s Ghostbusters or something.

    Also Scott, do not look up your place. You don’t wanna know OR draw attention from the cops

  161. Is Ketamine expensive?

    *Packs darts with ibuprophen.

  162. Congratulate!

    Sprine, fake.

  163. Not if you make your own Jewstin.

  164. MJ expands our vocabulary again. I can use that one.

  165. Do we really want jewstin cooking his own ketamine?

  166. He can do it. We’re here to help.

  167. you go first

  168. Phat, when is your Newark layover? If the time is not completely odd hours, I don’t mind abusing you in person.

  169. We have redneck chicken.

  173. Dave must be a shareholder.

  174. I wasn’t endorsing them scary brown guy. I was noticing them. It is a business though, this ain’t no public service thing.

    You think you got ghosts at your joint? Hell I’ll spring for half just to see who died in your bedroom where you sleep until now quite soundly,

  175. Half is like, 3x cab fare in downtown Boston. I can afford that.

  177. I already know who died in this house. And I have a pretty good idea who is next.

  178. >>You think you got ghosts at your joint?

    weird timing with that question, Dave. Just last week, at 5 in the morning, I got an unsettling feeling someone walked by briskly behind my back.

  179. >> oooooo, lookit Mr. Richguy, just tossing money around like crazy…..

    Almost enough to buy a sammich at Subway.

    Tushar that was one of your kids. They do that.

  180. I got an unsettling feeling someone walked by briskly behind my back.

    I told you not to give lauraw your address, but do you listen?

  181. Dave, wife and kids were fast asleep.

  182. Almost enough to buy a sammich at Subway.

    almost enough for a six-pack of MGD in cans.

  183. seriously, what do you think the “w” stands for anyway?

  184. >> Dave, wife and kids were fast asleep.

    Then wiserbud’s theory is starting to take on a horrible and terrifying form.

    Good luck. I like you.

  185. A year or so after our family moved to the suburbs, when my sister and I were still little kids, we both awoke to the sound of a parental argument happening down the hall, in the kitchen.

    We were both tired and aggravated. My sister yelled, “HEY! We’re trying to sleep!” And I yelled something similar, in hopes of getting them to shut up.

    And we ended up waking our parents, who were sleeping soundly in their bedroom.

    There was nobody in the kitchen.

  186. Then wiserbud’s theory……

    well, that only took about 5 years……

  187. you want ghost stories, wiserbride can tell you ghost stories……

  188. No one has died in my house.

    That we know of.

  189. No one has died in my house….

    That you know of….

  190. WiserGoddess has the most awesome family ghost stories. I don’t actually believe in ghosts.

    My pet theory on the supernatural is that it is bunkum; the reason we have any belief in the supernatural, is that we do not properly understand time, or how time actually behaves. Precognition has to do with the very nature of time, which is not what we think it is.

    ‘Clairvoyance’ is when someone briefly perceives the functioning of time in a more expansive (or more correct) way than usual.

  191. The opossums haunt me already. People ghosts are less frightening.

  192. Unreported side effect: Sea salt about to get really cheap.

  193. I had visited a graveyard (actually a Hindu crematorium) in the dead of the night once, to prove to myself I could do it. I was twelve.

  194. ‘Clairvoyance’ is when someone briefly perceives the functioning of time in a more expansive (or more correct) way than usual.

    You seem to have put in a lot of time on this theory.

    And yet…. I’m still confused. Are you saying that time is not a constant?

    Are we simply ticking away the moments that make up a dull day? Do we fritter and waste the hours in an off-hand way, kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town?

    Waiting for someone or something to show you the way?

  195. Time is a second-order effect of the heat death of the universe.

  196. Now the time has come. There’s no place to run. I might get burned up by the sun, but I had my fun.

    I’ve been loved and put aside. I’ve been crushed by tumbling tide and my soul has been psychedelicized.

    *shrugs

    it happens.

  197. Which is required for effect to follow cause, and so forth.

  198. I’m spending my time watching the Duggars.

  199. I’m spending my time watching the Duggars.

    well, that would be the definition of “fritter and waste”

  200. Seriously???? Pink Floyd killed the thread????

    That NEVER happens!!!

  201. well, that would be the definition of “fritter and waste”

    I suppose. It mostly makes me depressed.

  202. >> Now the time has come. There’s no place to run. I might get burned up by the sun, but I had my fun.

    totally mangled

    Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
    You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
    And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
    No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

  203. Tushar
    What are your thoughts about Modi’s victory?

  204. totally mangled

    Too much time on my hands, it’s ticking away with my sanity
    I’ve got too much time on my hands, it’s hard to believe such a calamity.

  205. btw, Dave, I hate to break your heart, but now that I’m into my 5th smoke-free week, with no end in sight, I’m gonna have assume that time is on my side….

  206. NO STYX

    also, the found the Marine who fell from the Osprey

    Sorry for the buzzkill I’m just glad they found him

  207. PF SUX

  208. PF SUX

    without PF, there would have been no Deadmau5…

    google it, sonny.

  209. TJ,

    I am very happy. Modi is a Hindu nationalist (sorta like a patriotic conservative Christian in American context) who does not mind religious minorities as long as they don’t blow up innocent people. He is a free marketer and hates corruption. I have very high hopes from him.

  210. Thanks, Dave. So sad.

  211. Not a surprise, Dave, but like you say, I’m glad they found him.

  212. Leon? Nice clipboard.

  213. Tushar
    He’s very pro-Israel too..
    India is becoming a major importer of Israeli technology and products
    Netanyahu is very happy. I’ve read.

  214. Leon? Nice clipboard.

    That could almost be me. Not that much gray in the beard just yet.

  215. TJ,
    India-Israel relations were cultivated 10+ years ago when Bajpayee(same reichwing party as Modi) was PM.
    Thankfully, during the 10 year Congress party rule, the relations did not slide back. Now they will improve further.

    There was even talk to allow a couple of IDF submarines to be based on India’s West coast for a doomsday second strike on Iran.

  216. PF SUX

    *beams and wipes away a proud tear*

  217. Tomorrow nite my youngest will be here and we’ll get some hugs in.

    Goodnight my dear friends.

  218. Goodnight.

  219. Yes
    As Israel has started to pivot away from the US ( who can blame them right now?), India and China are now becoming its largest export market

    btw – There are over 70,000 Indian Jews in Israel, having started immigrating from India after 1947.
    Many live in the South, within range of the assholes in Gaza.
    The anti-Israel nonaligned bullshit from the old Congress Party didnt give the Indian Jews much confidence, so most of them immigrated to Israel.

  220. TJ, most Israelis of Indian origin speak my language. But they are getting old and dying. The youngsters all speak Hebrew and English.

    My dad has a good friend who is Jewish. He has a couple of Israeli pen pals too.

  221. That’s great to hear about your dad
    Funny to remember that my dad kept up with his Indian relatives, both in Bombay and in Israel

    I remember being in Beersheba years ago and seeing several very beautiful Indian Israeli women, complete with saris and bindis walking to synagogue in Friday night.

  222. I embrace my Indian *dot* Israeli brothers and sisters with open arms and aircraft carriers.

  223. and F-35’s. or 18’s as they wish.

  224. Blake has a family wanting to adopt him. I will interview them tomorrow and see if they are a great family for him.

  225. Did I break it?

  226. This thread reminds me of Goatse. You don’t want to look at it but still you do.

    Good job, Vmax.

  227. Shut up, Rose.

  228. I am a man of constant sorrow!

    Tushar, when am I going to see you again so I can lay down a proper ass beating on you?

  229. Howdy Rosie!

    Blake has a adoption pending . Number 11 for ,me/

  230. for me
    Sorry

  231. Rosetta, it has been a while. Hope we have a meatup this summer. If you haven’t met Phat yet, you should. XBrad too. Funny clowns.

  232. Tushar: I just made $1,000.05 sucking dicks.

    Rosetta: Haha! Which one paid you the nickel?

    Tushar: All of them.

  233. Hello Vmax! How is life? Aren’t you in Tejas now?

  234. Rosetta, you should stop by at a more sane hour. Must sleep now….

  235. Go to bed Tushar!

    *soon…*

  236. Still in before the Daily Derp. My rant for today. I really wish Americanized Asians would stop marrying other Americanized Asians. Really tired of obviously Chinese Americans with Vietnamese last names. Hey, Xuan! Nobody believes you are a Nguyen. And Tagalog! Really? You look Asian, have a Spanish name, and you live on The Rez? How am I supposed to “Check My Privilege” when people keep twisting me up. At least the Hmong and the Cambodians are still keeping it real.

  237. BTW: 3 bourbons + 1 Chardonnay= Oso drunk posting. I’m guessing 6 Indians.

  238. The place where I come from is a derp town
    They think so derp
    They use derp words

  239. Daily Derp. I can sleep/read now.

  240. I am in Houston Rosie

  241. Dot or feather, oso?
