MMM 174: New Wagon Edition

Hi folks. So Sunday was busy for me. Church, trip to Tractor Supply, built my new 1000lb-capacity “utility cart” (big green wagon), and painted about 1/3 of the baby’s room. I did manage to eat two (2!) solid meals today, though they were very soft food and I had to chew them only on the right side of my mouth. Anyhow, I can’t wait to get back to work so I can relax!

Did you there are competitions in bikini? Like, it’s a skill ‘n’ stuff.

Where the heck was I when this was happening?

I believe this is what is often termed a “come hither” look. I haven’t seen one in a long time, so I can only guess.

Pretty smile.

There’s some misogynist crack about women and chains to be made here, but I’m too classy to make it.
Also I’d like to have her chained up for my amusement.

  1. I still don’t get it.

  2. MJ, they’re women in small and/or tight clothing.

    If you don’t “get” that…

  3. Wow! Several, apparently, actual women in this morning’s offerings.!

  4. Wakey wakey.

  5. Gym time. Very late start today.

  6. So three teens were killed friday. 1) speeding, 2) (looks like) alcohol. 3) no seatbelts on 4 of the 5 in car. 4) Driving a Jaguar. 5) “Senior Skip Day”

    Two additional teens are still in the hospital.

    Speed limit was 25. They were going 70.

    It seems like there is a lesson here.

  7. Usually Leon finds dudes that are at least pretty.

    Phoning it in today

  8. Green bathing suit girl ain’t half bad

  9. Hi Turds and Turdettes! For some reason I like this post . That is a pretty good “come hither” look. My come hither look is much like Emily’s….lacking greatly.

  10. Is that woman saying “Come hither” or having a seizure?

  11. Mornin’, dicksmokers.

  12. I did not poat this from my phone, so Dave is wrong.

    It seems like there is a lesson here.

    Don’t drive a Jaguar?

  13. Get them out of the gene pool early before they fuck up other people’s lives.

  14. It seems like there is a lesson here.

    Your kid’s first car should be an old beater tank that doesn’t go faster than 45.

  15. I subscribed to the school of thought that my kids’ first car should be the company pickup truck when it wasn’t being used evenings and weekends. First rule: bring it back with the same amount of gas as when you took it.

  16. Flexible “girl” doesn’t have any hips or tits. He’s a straight line.

  17. Flexible “girl” doesn’t have any hips or tits. He’s a straight line.

    Large feet & a cleft chin, too.

    Also, could someone please explain to Sammy Hagar why this can’t be love? He won’t stop whinging about that shit.

  18. It seems like there is a lesson here.
    This is what you get when you rape the planet with fossil fueled vehicles.

  19. My older brother bought a used Ford 150 from the HVAC company my dad worked for. It was $75 and the year was 1978. Any limited knowledge of automotive repairs I have comes from helping him do work on that truck.

  20. http://is.gd/Z5Fngt

    Trust your government. It’s for the children.

  21. Vintage pork.

  22. Send that shit to Gitmo.

  23. Donny Ray Williams, a former Democrat congressional aide, pled guilty to raping two women – but will not be serving any jail time…
    He worked as the general deputy assistant secretary for congressional and intergovernmental relations in the Department of Housing and Urban Development and served as a staff director for the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs subcommittee.

    Proving once again, like Bill Clinton, in Democrat World rape is a career enhancement.

    …between April 2009 and October 2010…

    Three guesses on this fellow’s ethnicity, and the first two don’t count.

  24. With a name like Donny Ray? Hmmmm….let me see…

  25. “Donny Ray” is a white boy’s name. Like “Jim Bob” or “Billy Joe”.

  26. That’s what I meant.

  27. Me thinks that we’re wrong…

  28. Pork with Strange Flavors

  29. Heh, my dad had a 78 F150. It was driven until the floor rusted out. Good ole truck, straight 6 with a 5 speed. Couldn’t learn to drive the automatic until you had mastered the truck.

  30. The company pickup was a F150 probably around a 1978. It was a weird sort of pea green color, but with no signage – just a truck for hauling lumber, etc. It was an automatic, no radio, normal cab size.

    My daughters looked especially hot driving that thing.

  31. I saw Vintage Pork open up for the Screaming Trees at DTE Energy Music Theater in 2006.

  32. I nicknamed your mom Vintage Pork.

  33. I thought my mom nicknamed you Vintage Pork.

  34. … But (Michelle) Obama returned to issues of racism in America with a warning to Tuskegee’s graduates that “the road ahead is not going to be easy”. “It never is,” she said, “especially for folks like you and me. Because while we’ve come so far, the truth is that those age-old problems are stubborn and they haven’t fully gone away. So there will be times … when you feel like folks look right past you, or they see just a fraction of who you really are.”

    Said the bitch whose megalomaniac husband was elected to the presidency. Twice.

    That victim card must be made of armor plate and black magic.

    *bonus racism*

  35. Do you have to decant vintage pork, or can you eat it straight from the industrial PVC container?

  36. Donny Ray.

  37. War on women. It wasn’t rape rape, since he used Ambien to drug them.

  38. So why no jail sentence? In 2013 Williams himself was assaulted by a man who poured acid on his face and body.

    If you’re going to rape some chick, better have eyes behind your head. Some dads don’t fuck around.

    http://www.truthrevolt.org/news/former-democratic-aide-avoids-jail-time-rapes

    Turns out Donny must not be short for Donald. Maybe Donntell?

  39. New BroScience. Surprisingly insightful.

    https://youtu.be/iQlIPOTbuH8

  40. What kind of acid was it? Asking for a friend.

    And by friend I mean future me.

  41. Little Donny splashed his face
    But Donny’s face is no more
    For what he thought was H2O,
    Was H2SO4

    They don’t call it Oil of Vitriol for nothing.

  42. You can buy muriatic acid in the hardware store.

    (I don’t know why I said that.)

  43. New job is soooooooooo easy.

  44. Your mom is so easy.

  45. I’ve bought muriatic acid before, seems like a good candidate.

    New job is soooooooooo easy.

    (Not gonna do it, going to go ahead and ask the straight question.)
    What’s it entail?

  46. He doesn’t have to swallow.

  47. I saw Face Acid open for Fine Young Cannibals in ’86 at the Newport.

  48. He doesn’t have to swallow.

    That’s not the end where he does his new business anyway.

  49. In a new email to supporters, the Obama Foundation said it will soon announce where it will be headquartered after his presidency. It is expected to be linked to his presidential library which is slated for Chicago.

    “Eight years is only the beginning. Barack Obama’s commitment to public service preceded his presidency, and will continue long after he and the first lady leave the White House. The foundation will carry forward the Obamas’ efforts to inspire active citizenship, expand economic opportunity, and promote peace and justice throughout the world,” said the email.

    Licorice Dick is going to make the Clinton Crime Family Foundation look like a nickel and dime operation. He’s going to be a multibillionaire by 2018, peddling bribery and influence worldwide.

  50. I dunno, George. As loathesome as he is, and as addicted to the high life he and Michelle are, I’ve not really sensed the grasping avarice that is the hallmark of the Clinton’s.

    I mean, yes, he and Mooch will live a live of ease and luxury on someone else’s dime, sure. And they’ll be PITAs. But I don’t think they’ll be the blatant scofflaws the Clinton’s are.

  51. I was about to comment about “who in the heck would want King Merdas’ help with anything” but I realized America’s enemies could use him to good effect for the foreseeable future with just a few pieces of silver here and there.

  52. peddling bribery and influence worldwide.

    What influence? He just got snubbed by the king of Saudi Arabia and the king of Bahrain.

    DO you honestly believe they consider President Mom-Jeans to be anything other than a brainless token?

    After this idiot is out of office, the only people who will still worship him will be the mouth-breathers who voted for him in the first place. And it’s gonna be hard to raise billions in donations from a bunch of free-loading takers.

    Anyone else with at least half a brain has figured out what a feckless waste of space the real Barack Obama is.

  53. Shit, even our enemies know that he is only valuable to them while he is in office. Once he’s gone, he is worthless to them.

  54. DO you honestly believe they consider President Mom-Jeans to be anything other than a brainless token?

    That’s the best kind of token. Remember, it’s not his brains anyone wants but the access he has to people in power. Hillary and Bill are feckless wastes, as well as Bill being a rapist. However, they have influence to peddle because they can open doors. So will Obama. No one gives money to the Clintoons because they worship them; they shower them with cash to buy pull and connections. Obama will have plenty of connections and pull to sell.

    even our enemies know that he is only valuable to them while he is in office. Once he’s gone, he is worthless to them.

    You could say the same about Rapist Bill, nevertheless he commands $500K per speech even after Hillary is out and he hasn’t been preezy for many years. You don’t have to be in office to bend powerful ears. Still, this is a good point because it illustrates why Cankles cannot quit or drop out; she must be beaten. If she quits just because she is taking heat, all potential and actual donors to the Clinton Crime Foundation will know the woman doesn’t deliver. It will kill all their “investments.” They know she has to win the White House to maximize her influence and she may yet be beaten, but they won’t tolerate her quitting. If she quits she kills much of the influence of the Clinton Crime Foundation.

  55. Just another day in the saga of a typical white guy from Peruvia..

  56. However, they have influence to peddle because they can open doors.

    You could say the same about Rapist Bill, nevertheless he commands $500K per speech even after Hillary is out and he hasn’t been preezy for many years.

    The Clintons still had influence because Hillary became Senator and then SecState,, plus everyone knew she was going to make a run at the Presidency and, up until The Chocolate Jesus popped up, was pretty much considered inevitable.

    They have also spent years building a huge organization of sycophants, insiders and bootlickers throughout all branches of government and around the world. Bill is a reminder of better days to them and they would do anything, up to and possibly including, kill for him and, by extension, his wife.

    Michelle is not well-liked, nor does she have the same “inevitability” surrounding her as Hillary did, should she seek office. They are not the same people as the Clintons. And they have caused great damage to the Democrats and Leftists causes that will persist for many years to come.

    Barry and Mooch will live extremely comfortable lives until they shuffle off this moral coil, but I think the same people that continue to kowtow to the Clintons and make them billionaires would be very happy if the Obamas just went away and stayed away.

    Forget about the Gilded Sasquatch, I’m talking about LD. The man lives for one thing only, apart from his leisure: campaigning. It’s the only work he seems to like and do well. It’s a natural fit to turn this toward lining the pockets of the Obama Foundation the way the Clintons did. Of course, he could just be lazy, but I doubt it. He loves adulation too much to just put his feet up.

    The Clintons would still have lots of influence even without either of them being in office, and so will LD. It’s about opening doors and calling in friends and connections. Of course, it would be more lucrative were LD still in office….

    *pictures LD as UN Sec’y General*

  59. The man lives for one thing only, apart from his leisure: campaigning. It’s the only work he seems to like and do well. It’s a natural fit to turn this toward lining the pockets of the Obama Foundation the way the Clintons did.

    Yeah, but the Clinton’s built relationships with billionaires..

    The Obama Foundation is gonna have a tough time raising a whole lot of cash from the likes of Peggy Joseph and the fat, lazy members of the Chicago Teacher’s Union.

    It will be interesting to watch.

  60. Office restrooms should have jet powered, industrial exhaust fans.
    Especially if the said office employs a lot of brown folks.

    That’s all.

  61. Well, we shall see. It probably hinges on what kind of doors you can open if you fork over boxcars of cash to the Licorice Dick Slush Fund-ation. If he can’t deliver, no one will contribute.

    But don’t count out union donations. The SEIU is flush with cash.

  62. But don’t count out union donations. The SEIU is flush with cash.

    Not as much as they used to have and, again, once he’s gone, that money will be better spent on rigging elections and buying off those firmly ensconced in office for life.

  63. Thinking a bit further, it’s true LD never was and never will be the glad-handing glib politician the First Rapist was. So he may have a tough time outdoing Bill’s racketeering after all.

  64. Barry was a useful tool. He was the right person at the right time who said the right things to the right people with the right tone and flourish. He was an empty vessel and always will be.

    And he had a shit-ton of handlers who’s only job it was was to continually shine that turd up nice and pretty for his media appearances and photo-ops.

    And from what I understand, VJ is not going to be leaving Washington with any friends mourning her loss, so she’s not going to have any power after 2016 either.

  65. To this day, I honestly don’t think he really expected to win and only ran so he and his team could fund-raise.

  66. Office restrooms should have jet powered, industrial exhaust fans.

    Amen

    ~said every girl working in an office who’s had to walk by the boys’ restroom

  67. LD winning the office was like the dog who caught the car. He was good at running after the car, but had fuckall idea what to do next.

  68. but had fuckall idea what to do next

    Crashing it into a tree is an idea, of sorts.

  69. by the way, show has been posted, along with edited video, here:

  70. To this day, I honestly don’t think he really expected to win and only ran so he and his team could fund-raise.

    I generally agree. He was doing it for the cash and prizes, and never expected the forces surrounding him to puff him along as well as they did. Plenty of puppeteers were all pulling him upward expecting to get him far into the primaries or maybe even into VP, then boom he beat her. Oops.

  71. Mosquitoes are so bad we can’t go outside.

    I got into my truck this morning and 3 came in with me.

    Mosquito Magnet has been deployed.

    Yes – hate it too, and the classic will be gone soon.

  81. Every weather site sucks now.

  82. From an engineer’s perspective:
    Super-sized exhaust fans may tragically suck out the smaller brown officer workers through those terrible steel blades and that could be detrimental to team morale.

  89. TJ!
    Longtime no see!
    I was dying to hear your take on the recent oil prices movements and it’s impact on mother-frackers like you.

  90. BTW, anyone in touch with Sohos? From her recent linkedin photo, it looks like she has lost weight. I hope that she hasn’t slimmed down in, um, places that should not slim down.

  91. She’s on FB. Doing well, looks great.

    She’s still bigger.

  92. To this day, I honestly don’t think he really expected to win and only ran so he and his team could fund-raise.

    I’ve been told by people with (tenuous) connections to the Senate that he believed he could win.

    I always figured that he was gunning for kingmaker between Hillary! and Silky Pony. He’d use it to get a cushy assignment like UN Ambassador or what have you and then write another god-damn book.

  93. That scenario has merit, Alex.

  94. Greetings, people who want to shoot the whole day down.

  95. Gov Richardson committed NM extra votes to the winner of the caucus. It nearly didn’t get certified, because of shenanigans. I really thought the Hillary voters would be pissed after being treated like NM Republicans. Votes went to TFG. Dem chair was my cousin Tony’s BF and law partner. His vote went to TFG. He tried to run for statewide election later. We are trending GOPer statewide. Still Blue for the fucks in DC.

  96. BTW new phone. I may kill Dan on FaceTime.

  97. Kurt Schlichter’s column on Free Speech this week kicks several kinds of ass. We should be having free speech rallies in every fricken town in the Country especially Deerborn, MI.

  98. Y’all really need to comment more quickly. On last nerve. Post- Mother’s Day lunch was ruined by a stooped complaining cocksucker that everyone in the restaurant wanted to kill. All 10 of us.

  99. Stoopid. Didn’t realize I hadn’t disabled all my autocucumbers

  100. Dearborn.

  102. *debriefs and flings panties at Kurt Schlichter*

  103. Did I miss “MJ’s Filthy Word of the Day”?

  104. I didn’t notice a word of the day. Mostly a “Just too easy”. Mostly.

  105. MJ ran out of them already. No idea how he’s going to keep himself entertained now. Aside from being constantly sodomized, of course.

  106. Hi Tushar!
    I was going to post my thoughts on what the drop in oil prices had done to my business, but I suffered a workplace injury due to a defective Shlurpee machine at my new night job.

  107. TJ, you need to talk to Wiser or maybe Cob-log on that. We are all interested.

  108. TJ, didja try Whatr Burger?

  109. Is the Apocalypse around the corner? I just got a more coherent text from my dad than from my son.

  110. Oso, I would talk to Wiser about that, but his new Avi scares me.

    Mr Chumpo, I tried, but failed the Whataburger congeniality test..

  111. Texas Jew, I’d like to hear about your situation also. Have to be honest, low gas prices are important for the American way of life and I want country tourin,g goods distribution,etc., to be affordable.
    However, I will simpathize with you r situation because your’re hard working conservative.

  112. This painting could be yours for a cool $179.4 million:

  113. Roamy, got a text from my bro lat week to call my mom. nothing important. Me: She only talks to me about stupid stuff and raffles. Bro: I think it’s about the raffle. I called my mom, she’s pissed about older family members being denied medical services. Me: You voted for it. Mom: What do you mean? I didn’t vote for this! Me: You vote D-rat. Sarah Palin told you about death panels. All you d-rats voted, you own this. Mom: If you buy 5 tickets, I’ll give you 6. Raffle is for a truck, if I sell the most tickets, I win a big TV. Me: I have a big TV. I don’t need a truck. My mom: I can’t see the ball scores on my TV. Me: You should’ve voted Republican. Fin

  114. Thanks Mare!
    Just kidding, of course. Still got those damn wells in North Dakota (where it snowed a ton last week!) and setting up a new company back in Texas. Been out in the oil patch since oil was $3/barrel, so not my first time at the rodeo..

  115. Harry Reid says your mom and your older family members are all liars. There is no downside anywhere to Obamacare.

  116. My one GOP Uncle was the first one hit by ACA. The rest of them can kiss my ass.

  117. Harry Reid says lots of things. Mostly a combination of the words “secret,” “it’s,” “little,” and “our.”

  118. Searchlight.

  119. Went to visit my dad and stepmom and that side of the family this past weekend.

    Grandma is not looking well and I would not be surprised if she passes before Christmas. Certainly before my sister’s wedding next summer.

    My sister got engaged. She told dad’s side of the family, but failed to tell mom.

    Oh, and my drug-addict, criminal cousin was pushed down two flights of stairs while in prison by one of the guards. His back is broken in five places. Yeah, he’ll probably end up with a fat settlement, out of prison, and then blow all that money on drugs.

    On the other hand… I bought books, so life isn’t awful.

  120. Ben looks exactly like how I pictured him, only skinnier

  121. What books?

  122. TJ, for what it’s worth, I expect oil to rise up to $70-75 range and settle their for a while (3-5 years at least). It is not as good as $100+, but better than $45. Will pay the bills.

    This is just a half-assed, off the cuff, back of the envelope, seat of the pants bullshit analysis from me. My only brush with oil is in the back office of an investment bank a long time back clearing petroleum futures trades.

  123. What vertebral bodies?

  124. She told dad’s side of the family, but failed to tell mom.

    Uh oh. But I am glad she’s getting married. I was beginning to think only gay people were getting married any more.

  125. Linear Algebra for Dummies (Trying to review as prep for taking the class in the fall), Basic Blacksmithing for the Homestead, The Crusades, and an Italian-language copy of The Nonexistant Knight for my Italian language study.

  126. Roamy, my almost 30 yr old niece moved in with her boyfriend without benefit of marriage. Dan’s WHOLE family is freaking. Beth couldn’t even attend Mother’s Day festivities. My MiL is more chill than her parents. My FiL was the hardcore Catholic.

  127. Uh oh. But I am glad she’s getting married. I was beginning to think only gay people were getting married any more.

    Yup, and guess who inadvertently told Mom when he called to wish her a happy Mother’s Day?

    She’s a good little progressive, but apparently wants to the traditional-ish wedding. I think it’s kind of funny.

  128. CoAlex, what about beer brewing? I understand that is HUGE in CO?

  129. Oso, yeah, with hipsters, progtards, and California ex-pats.

  130. I was far more interested in beer drinking when I lived in Colorado.

  131. Linear Algebra for Dummies

    Rare instance where the movie was better.

  132. Brian Dennehy was brilliant as the eigenvector.

  133. *Cracks a delicious beer*

    What?

  134. Speaking of oil prices, gas is $3/Gallon here…

  135. Guy at work actually got a degree in beer brewing from CSU. Too many craft brews in ABQ have him heading back to CO.

  136. I wouldn’t mind an acre of barley and a couple of hop vines. But the microbrew crap is getting annoying here.

  137. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned before, but young people have no concept of sarcasm. (There are exceptions, no need to brick wall me)

  138. Speaking of oil prices, gas is $3/Gallon here…

    Aw. There there.

  139. Oh, one advantage of being in Portland this weekend: it wasn’t Colorado.

    Plus, all the cute girls at Powell’s in thin sun dresses.

  140. CoAlex, you mean the “Pairings” and the “Hops location” and the “Aging and temp” peeps? Those guys?

  141. I had a lot of good beers at the Wynkoop Brewery my year in Denver.

  142. I remember really liking linear algebra. Enjoy it if you can. I’ve got a few books about the Crusades waiting for me, and a half-dozen on gardening/farming/herbalism.

  143. $2.34 here, but 10 cents cheaper at Smith’s and none of our comp shop people drive by THIS Smith’s. Dan and I have been trying to get our Smith’s in the comp shop for years!!!

  144. Oso, yup. Plus most microbreweries seem to belong to the “More hops better!” orthodoxy, without actual concern for things like balance or taste.

  145. Leon,

    Dad feels the same way. He liked linear algebra, diff eq, etc. Hated calc. Said that you either loved calc or felt like a survivor afterwards.

  146. I think it’s funny how half (ok, maybe 10%) of us are interested in self improvement and the rest are working on self destruction.

  147. I’m up in Washington state at Fort Lewis for three weeks to assist with training. Today was supposed to be the first day of a week-long class for 30+ PAX. Five show up this morning, which isn’t enough to hold the class (We need enough to have groups). The local instructor cancels the class. We get a call at lunch that the units will provide enough PAX at 1300. Seven show up after lunch, four from the first group and three new students. Still not enough, so class is cancelled again.

    Just got a call from the instructor that the unit promises to have the right number of personnel tomorrow. We’ll see what happens, but I’m not holding my breath.

  148. I think it’s funny how half (ok, maybe 10%) of us are interested in self improvement and the rest are working on self destruction.

    I want to start drinking but I should probably go workout first.

  149. Calc is okay, I managed with it – no love or hate – but my brain is built for algebra. All the cool divisibility tricks, crypto, groups, just clicked better.

  150. I flunked Algebra II in high school.

    Badly.

  151. MJ, what is this 10% you speak of? I think it is more 40/60. Then again, I dropped out of college to avoid algebra.

  152. Blacksmithing sounds like a blast, too.

  153. Dan is helping me set up my new phone. He was face timing me from the couch and BLOCK.

  154. I took a weekend class and enjoyed it quite a bit. The blacksmithing, not the calc. I would love to have a place where I could set up a workshop and play around with it.

  155. Leon, I did some basic blacksmithing during shop class as part of engineering. I would love to do it again. Need to move to a place with houses farther apart, so I don’t rile up the neighbors.

  156. RL friend has a carriage horse business. 2 new foals. Her ex-hubby works for her and new hubby. Tony has the blacksmith skills.

  157. Always drink before working out.

  158. MJ what are you referring to specifically? I agree with you and want to know why.

  159. New hubby has the $$$ to support carriage horse hobby. Foals are gorgeous.

  160. >>>I flunked Algebra II in high school.

    Badly.

    Same here. I did great in Algebra I and Geometry. So good I got placed in the Honors class. It was a small class full of kids who were either much brighter than I was or who just gave a shit about math more than chasing pussy. It was a long year that ended up with me barely passing and getting back to regular Trigonometry class.

  161. I found algebra II easy.

    Calculus is Klingon bullshit that normal people can’t learn.

  162. Did you get the pussy? And by pussy I mean the fat girls with daddy issues.

  163. MJ what are you referring to specifically? I agree with you and want to know why.
    ——————————
    It was just an observation. Half of the hostages are planting gardens, reading, and generally being good people while the other half is drunkenly looking down the barrel of a gun to make sure it’s not loaded. For safety.

    It makes me tinkle my underfelt.

  164. HAHAHAHA, MJ has his pulse on the H 2.

  165. Geometry to me was English. A+. Algebra kicked my ass. 26 on the ACT. 7 on the UNM. Stupid counselor believed the 26. Not the 7. I’m the 7. FF 4 years, and my counselor wouldn’t accept the 7. It was Calc or nothing. I went with nothing.

  166. Heh, Scott, my daughter got a 5 on the AP calculus exam.

  167. I’ve heard it argued convincingly that calculus shouldn’t be taught in high school to anyone not planning a STEM degree, but statistics should be required for a diploma, if only to fight the rampant destruction wrought by ignorance of it.

    Don’t know calc? You’ll be okay unless you want to plan orbital intercepts or do signal processing.

    Don’t know basic stats? You’re a chump waiting to get played.

  168. I don’t even know what calculus means. Stupid lame brain. Kicked ass in geometry.

  169. I took Algebra I in 8th grade, and struggled. The school recommended I take it again, so I did. Got stuck with the same teacher. Did worse the second time around, but hey, I passed. Took Geometry in 10th grade, and it was a breeze. Kinda enjoyed it almost. Took Algebra II in 11th grade. Got stuck with the husband of my Algebra I teacher. I don’t think I ever understood a damn thing in that class.

    Took Gym in 12th grade. Mostly for girls in cute gym shorts.

  170. I didn’t actually have an AP calculus course in high school, I had to ask for the exam and had to wing it on prep because it was 1994 and there weren’t no innernets yet. I think I got a 3.

  171. I don’t even know what calculus means. Stupid brain. Kicked geometry’s ass.

  172. Yeah, wish I’d had a stats course.

  173. Wtf just happened?

  174. I eat healthy, exercise, & go to church so I can drink heavily & play with guns & motorcycles.

  175. Same deal for AP Chem. I took all the chem classes we had and then an independent study, but we didn’t have textbooks that covered orbitals so I only eeked out a 3 there as well.

  176. I’ve heard it argued convincingly that calculus shouldn’t be taught in high school to anyone not planning a STEM degree, but statistics should be required for a diploma, if only to fight the rampant destruction wrought by ignorance of it.

    Don’t know calc? You’ll be okay unless you want to plan orbital intercepts or do signal processing.

    Don’t know basic stats? You’re a chump waiting to get played.

    I’m generally a fan of getting rid of AP, Honors, IB, etc courses. Hold all kids to the same standard for graduation and let the smart ones test out and move on with their lives.

    I also sat down a couple years ago and planned out my ideal HS curriculum. By Junior year you’d be going to school for half a day, and a senior you’d have two classes.

  177. That’s Mr Chumpo to you.

  178. I’m not sure I could tell you where I went to HS let alone what I took as subjects.

    Oh I’m sure there were numbers and letters but none of it mattered compared to passing a notebook back and forth with Sheryl Anderson all day.

    I guess it was texting 1.0.

  179. Calculus is that crap they scrape off your teeth.

  180. Got a B in Stats at UNM. Only fulfilled half my Math requirement. My ACT score denoted Calc. My counselor refused to budge.

  181. Good math was Algebra I, Geometry, Trigonometry

    Bad math was Algebra II and Calculus.

    Mare, I had one girlfriend in high school and got more pussy in 2 years of high school than I did in 4 years of college. Made up for that in med school and residency because of my white male privilege.

    Blacksmithing………..

    ===========

    Racist

  183. >>>Calculus is that crap they scrape off your teeth.

    An important ingredient in tartar sauce

  184. Leon, my daughter is a fledgling engineer. Passed the FEE, but uses more logistical stuff. Will take the PEE when she has the time.

  185. Speaking of Calculus…

    Tushar,
    Your back of the envelope guesstimate is at least as good as anything those schmucks come up with on CNBC, where it appears they usually use monkey knuckles, voo-doo incantations and phrenology.

    $75-80 is the sweet spot. My ND wells are still set up at an $85 hedge we got from Cargill last summer.
    I have six more horizontal wells to drill in ND, but five of those are on the back burner till 2016 or later due to the oil prices.

    In the meantime,I’m leasing some shallow vertical wildcat stuff in Texas right now and hoping to get it drilled later this year.

    Just hunkering down now in case another shitstorm hits..

  186. There’s always time to PEE

  187. Hahahah….good on you, Jimbro!!

  188. Those are for real engineers, Mare, I’m some kind of physicist/mathematician/BigData goober so I never took either of them. Don’t even know offhand what they stand for.

  189. Looking for tartar images I stumbled across this one (don’t click if you’re easily grossed out): http://is.gd/0X9PK5

    Now what in the Sam Hill is that curly black hair doing there? They couldn’t remove it before the picture or photoshop it out?

    Gross.

  190. I took AP Calculus in high school. Got a 5 on the test and promptly forgot everything I knew about math.

  191. TJ, what about the impact of Iran messing with Strait transport? If we had any other President than TFG?

  192. Jimbro, I vomit when I get my hair in my mouth.

  193. Aside from the hair (which, yeah, so nasty) that was pretty tame compared to what the backs of my teeth looked like before this year. I hadn’t been to the dentist in twenty years.

  194. Went in for a graduate Petroleum Engineering degree at UT/Austin.
    Switched over to Geophysics after 20 hours. Pure agony.
    Math is hard.. for me.

    Vector Calculus made me cry

  195. Oso, Iran has nothing to fear from Obama.
    He’s their little bitch..

  196. I was talking about all the other shipping that goes through the strait. We all know TFG is the Goat.

  197. Iran really *did* have a legitimate dispute with Maersk Tigris. But seizing it was obviously a tit-for-tat in response to the US interdicting an Iranian convoy to Yemen.

  198. XB, you are interfering with my personal narrative.

  199. Oso, they wouldn’t screw with the Strait of Tiran, I think. But the Suez is something else. That directly affects Europe.

    Iran is in an expansionist mood, for sure and no one’s pushing back. Very unpredictable..

  200. We are worse than a paper tiger. ValJar has ceded everything to Iran. I come from Reynolds Aluminum country. I look cute in tinfoil.

  201. I just rewatched Season 2 of Black Sails for the 3rd time. OMG y’all. Totes way bettah than Outlander.

  202. Totes

  203. Scott, it is without doubt the best thing on television.

  204. Unless you are Dan. He’s all American Pickers. And Storage Wars.

  205. Hotspur enjoys the pirate stuff.

  206. Dan has the taste in the relationship.

  207. Grrr. Dan is planning a craft brew vacation. I think we can all agree Dan is ghey

  208. Valerie Jarret is an Iranian agent.

    Bedtime.

  209. ValJar is the hub. TFG is a tool.

  210. Did anybody get into an argument with anybody else about who was more punk rock today?

  211. Punk, no. My gheys are being out of control gay

  212. My hair is kinda punk.

  213. CoAlex,
    How long, and why, are you at JBLM?
    I’m about 8 miles East of the East Gate of Ft. Lewis.
    I used to work on helicopters on a DoD contract at Gray Field…

  214. Hotspur is all about the pirate booty.

  215. I smell a mini-meatup.

  216. Or maybe that’s the smell of pirate booty…

  217. Grrr. Made reservations at a hotel in Atlanta last year for this year’s Blade show. We decided to get there late Wednesday instead of Thursday, so Penelope called to add Wed. night. Hotel has no record of our reservation even though we have a confirmation #. Hopefully we can straighten it out tomorrow. No rooms available now, of course. Grrrr.

  218. Our last meatup smelled a lot like booty and Chad.

    Mostly Chad.

  219. Oh Pepe, that is some suckage. Fingers crossed they take care of you right. When’s the show?

  220. “Chad Smell”

  221. Or maybe that’s the smell of pirate booty…

  222. What music have you found on Amazon Free lately, Double?

    Hi, Kitty.

  223. Booty.

    http://tinyurl.com/m59dmbo

  224. Can we have a meatup at a knife show? That sounds like a good idea.

    Mumbly peg! No MJ, not pegging.

  225. http://is.gd/tmbCTD

    More addicting than the purple meth.

  226. mare, you can look up mumbly peg on urban dictionary, it’s safe.

    Pegging, not so much.

  227. Heh

  228. Cyn,
    Yeah, I was thinking about inviting him for dinner tomorrow for pork-loin, onions, carrots, beans, potatoes, and BEER.

    After all, I invited BiW for Christmas Turkey dinner without ever having met him.
    It baffled the shit out of our friends who were here.
    “Wait, you have never seen this guy before and you asked him to dinner?”
    No problem, he’s a Hostage…
    They were all like: WTF, O?

  229. Can I come to dinner, too?

  230. Meow, Mr. Chumpo!

    I should check out that Amazonia Music thing one of these days. I’m on the UTube at the moment listening to the soundtrack from ST Into Darkness.

  231. Jay,
    Yes you can. We will set a place…

  232. No problem, he’s a Hostage…

    *nods*

    Automatic family where ever we are. Amazing. Wonderfulness.

  233. Thanks for reminding me about the Iowa chops in the freezer, chrisp. Sounds like a good dinner.

  234. ChrisP,

    I’m here until the 22nd. I’m helping teach basic intelligence analysis to infantrymen.

  235. Show is in 3 weeks. I can always show up with several psychotic knife friends.

  236. Amazon Prime is great.

  237. CoAlex,
    Drop me a note at cplasch at eskimo dot com if you would like to stop by.
    We will feed you. Bore you, and make you wish for a quick death.

  238. I can always show up with several psychotic knife friends.

    Sounds like a guaranteed way to get the Presidential Suite.

  239. Aaaannndddd now I’ve stumbled onto Daft Punk. Chair Dancing!

  240. Cyn?

  241. The Amazon Prime music collection is pretty fucking good. Plays nicely with my phone as well.

  242. Did I leave my webcam on again?!

  243. No, nope, not at all!

  244. X if you see my keys in Cyn’s front yard grab it for me. I must have dropped them there.

  245. Chumpo,

    Found a couple of new bands that sound innaresting…

    https://youtu.be/2PdYvkaYsaU

    https://youtu.be/b7lxtdNqWME

  246. Those are cool.

  247. No, I’ve never had a job
    Because I’ve never wanted one
    I’ve seen you derp
    But I’ve never really heard you laugh

  248. Wakey… ooops.
