  2. So let me get this straight. If a college boy bugs a girl for her phone number, that’s sexual assault, but if it’s an Afghan man buggering a little boy, that’s their culture and we should respect that.

  3. Rape culture is a culture and must be respected in its native places.

  4. My bil came home from the Middle East detesting their culture because he saw this all the time.

    Wakey wakey

    Anyone miss me yet? Three more days of exile I think. I’m getting lots done around the house.

  5. Heh, roamy, just saw a story on sexual assault on campus. Only 10% of students have been “attacked” on Iowa college campuses, making them “safe”.

    We’ve lost our damn mind. It started when we had to start saying “great job” whenever someone wiped their ass right at school.

  6. *starts Car in’s bandwidth meter.

  7. Great job commenting j’ames.

  8. Trying to do two-a-days this week which means a run in the morning and crossfit tonight. Or the reverse. Can’t decide which way to do this.

  9. Just read a weekend thread. So Anita is fine now right? We has a guy die here in michigan two weeks ago from multiple stings . Wasn’t allergic either. Up in Grayling I think?

    What is Larping?

    Live action role playing. Think D&D only running around and costume and with foam swords actually playing as your character.

  11. *snickers about mare being on the wrong thread

  12. That video was amazing. Wow, just wow!

  13. Not only was it the wrong thread it was a very weird conversation that I didn’t understand and now with some understanding I’m even more confused.

    Don’t people just talk and get to know one another anymore? No gimmicks or props?

    Is this nerd love?

  15. What video?

  16. In this art post.

  17. Don’t people just talk and get to know one another anymore? No gimmicks or props?
    Is this nerd love?

    It’s the nerd version of playing touch football in the park. There’s nothing wrong with it, nor does it preclude having a nice civilized conversation with another person. It’s just something that geeky folks sometimes do for fun.

  18. I agree, it’s the same thing as church meetings, science clubs, etc. A place where people of similar interests congregate and interact.

  19. So would banging some hooks be roll playing? Or would you have to wear a son of Sam costume and carry a .38 smubnose for it too qualify for larp status?

  20. VW is so screwed.

  21. I admire everything they did except for the getting caught part.

  22. Are Furries LARPers?

  23. Am I the last person to realize that Hillary doesn’t have blue eyes?

  24. Why is VW screwed?

  25. She has eyes?

  26. VW got busted by the EPA.

    Their diesel cars were programmed to run cleaner while being tested for emissions, stock is down 35% in 2 days.

  27. “Am I the last person to realize that Hillary doesn’t have blue eyes?”

    No.

  28. Holy crap. Webb Hubbell is Chelsea’s dad?

    Nothing with them is real. Nothing.

    —-

    What made you say that?

  31. Does Chelsea look more like Bill or Hillary’s law partner?

  32. gross

  33. No, I believe it, Scott, I just wondered if there was some new info or something.

  34. if Hillary doesn’t have blue eyes and Chelsea does, they are not mother and daughter. Not possible.

  35. Gregor Mendel was a part of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy

  36. hahahaha, They would have had him killed.

    Holy crap. Webb Hubbell is Chelsea’s dad?

    Nothing with them is real. Nothing.

    I said this on the HQ thread yesterday, but I suspect that Hillary’s sexuality was always ideological (I must sleep with women to be a good feminist), as well as politically convenient. It wouldn’t surprise me if she screwed around with girls because Bill the Pervert wanted to watch, and that the whole sordid group surrounding the Clintons were fucking one another.

  38. If Webb Hubble is Chelsea’s father, who’s her mother?

  39. Wait, I’m overstating it. It’s merely highly unlikely that they are mother and daughter.

  40. Chelsea’s eye color is probably fake as well.

  41. Dead eyes can look any color in the right light.

  42. but if it’s an Afghan man buggering a little boy, that’s their culture and we should respect that.

    From what I’m hearing, before ’09, if they saw such a thing, they were able to take care of it and not be punished. In ’09, the RoE got stupid, and not only were they told to look the other way, but our body count exploded. obama is all in for the boy diddlers and our guys are told to suck it up.

    Btw, wasn’t there a recent article about vet suicides being way too high?

  43. What color are Hillary’s eyes?

    (yes I could go bing image her face but then I’d have to bing image her face and look at it)

  44. Btw, wasn’t there a recent article about vet suicides being way too high?
    ——–
    They are, but once again, the hype is a bit much.

    The average age of a “veteran” suicide is 59.

    For decades, veterans were actually LESS likely than their peers to commit suicide. Sadly, that’s changed. But for the Iraq/Afghanistan vets, while they are more likely than their civilian peers to commit suicide, it’s an almost statistically insignificant margin.

    Really, what it is is that the young I/A vets that attempt suicide are simply better at it than civilians.

  45. It wouldn’t surprise me if she screwed around with girls because Bill the Pervert wanted to watch, and that the whole sordid group surrounding the Clintons were fucking one another.

    The dude who usually writes about them, wrote that in one of his books. Open marriage. Supposedly the beast was screwing Foster.

  46. Gross

  47. Not to worry, the old gal is falling apart.

  48. Let it Bern!

  49. I heard on the AOS mailing list that Walker didn’t even tell his donors he was dropping out. That would explain roamy’s phone call.

  50. *wonders where I can get Bernie yard signs, and bumper stickers.

    *going all in

  51. Nope. Chelsea looked like Bill in a wig, when she was a kid. I remember being struck by their resemblance, before he was elected. Then at some point in her teens they started doing cosmetic surgery to remove Bill’s unfortunate knob-nose from her face.

    There’s no way that’s not Bill’s progeny. Let’s not go all goofy, people.

  52. Why do you think Walker got out before douchebag Graham, Huckleberry, Christy, and Kasich?

  53. He’s smart enough to get out before he runs up a massive debt. Maybe making plans to challenge Hillary or Bernie in 2020.

  54. Maybe making plans to challenge Hillary or Bernie in 2020.

    If either one of those get in next year, there will not be another GOP president. Jorge Ramos will be running in ’20.

  55. Abortion is ok, it’s in the Bible!

    http://reverbpress.com/religion/bible-supports-abortion/

  56. There won’t be another GOP pres, beasn. And I disagree on the 20 pick, it will be one of the Castro brothers from San Antonio.

  57. I got 83. Messed up a lot with the Bond films and the Batman ones.

  58. 90, and yeah, the Bond and Batman were the ones I missed most.

  59. Yeah, those and the Julia Roberts ones.

    Pierce Brosnan Bond movies? PuhLEEZE!

  60. 97 out of 99, and I’ve never seen most of those movies.

  61. That list made me think of American Beauty, a slow motion train wreck I couldn’t turn away from that haunted me after watching it.

    http://is.gd/9KlZ06

    The trailer reminds me a little of the story which I’ve mostly forgotten. I wonder if it’ll have the same effect on me if I watch it again.

  62. My skunk cleaner arrived today. Here’s hoping I never need to use it! When I was walking my dogs around on the lawn I noticed lots of little dig holes where a skunk must be going after grubs. The dogs were sniffing around a lot right where the scratch marks were.

  63. 93

  64. Missed two out of three of the Bond ones, plus the Jurassic Park one.

    Not fair using sequels.

  65. Why is jimbro cleaning a skunk?

  66. I feel bad about missing the Notting Hill one, since wiserbride’s grandmother was in that.

  67. It’s a hobby at this point Jay. If I ever figure out how to turn a profit at it I’m going pro.

  68. Ted Cruz Auditions for The Simpsons

  69. Heh, Why the Right is Right (Gutfeld)

  70. AND STAY DEAD!!!! http://i.imgur.com/NZmHd.gif

  71. Beating a dead horse (face) there are we, Jay?

  73. 89/99

    I also pearled on the 007?!! I love those films. They have long stupid titles.

  74. XBrad. Loadheat. Make it rain.

  75. Howdy. Did Leon coin “Let it Bern!”? J’ames? I’ve already adopted it.

  76. I ❤️ Cruz. Hasn’t let me down…yet.

  77. Oh no, Let It Bern is a creation of Bernie supporters.

  78. did y’all see Carly’s new ad? Disturbing, but proves her right.

  79. Do they mean LiB like we do? I need Roamy to write a Let It Bern! Song. She’s an amazing lyricist

  80. Nope.

  81. Knew she was right about the video. Unhappy with her attacks on Carson. I truly believe that sharia is incompatible with The BOR.

  82. Bernie supporters say “Feel the Bern”. SMOG/SGOD supporters like me say “Let it Bern”.

    I don’t know if I coined it, but I don’t think I read it before I said it.

  83. We say Let if Bern. His supporters usually say Feel the Bern.

  84. Leon, I think you were first. I love it! Stoopid SMOD.

  85. Biden should use it.

    Feel the Joe.

  86. Feel the Joe.

    ——

    Love it.

    Feel the Joe and he’ll feel you right back!

  87. Spoof of Let It Bern? Hmmm, should I use Frozen’s “Let It Go” or Beatles “Let It Be”?

  88. Dammit Roamy! I was thinking Frozen. I think the Beatles work better with Bernie.

  89. I received four emails in an hour about a gay Navy Seal giving a talk at some NASA LBBQWERTYWTFG event. Ok, ok!

    borrowing this from Jay

  90. Frozen makes me pine for the sweet glacier of death.

  91. Let it Floe,
    Let it Floe,
    Bring the ice and bring the snow…

  92. I am a big Disney movie fan. I cannot understand why Frozen was so big. I thought it was good but not great. And the music was kind of boring to me.

  93. Maybe it’s different when you’re watching with kids.

  94. Frozen was meh. Hunchback and Mulan are the two that grew on me. Lilo & Stitch is the BEST DISNEY MOVIE EVER!!!!!

  95. Frozen sucked. Shrek was much better.

  96. Mare, 2, count them 2 princesses. Blonde and brunette. NO GINGERS!!!

  97. I think Lion King was pretty amazing. And I loved Beauty and The Beast (that’s really old). My girls had the Beauty and The Beast Mrs. Pots and Chip tea set.

    I’m a sucker for a love story.

  98. HA! Oso.

  99. Never watched any of the above.

  100. I still can’t decide if Beauty and the Beast teaches little girls a terrible lesson about being able to change a man or a wonderful lesson about being able to see the beauty of character under even the most monstrous of visage.

  101. Ariel was a ginger. And she had a swimmer’s body.

  102. Tale as old as time…

  103. …a wonderful lesson about being able to see the beauty of character under even the most monstrous of visage.

    Except that the “Beast” was looking pretty good. If they were serious about teaching that lesson, they’d have “Beauty and the Blob” or “Beauty and The Spleen” (the latter being from Mystery Men).

  104. I’m a Disnoid. Fantasia 2000? Traveled to Lubbock to watch on IMAX. Saw the re-release of The Lion King on IMAX in Waikiki. Beauty and the Beast on IMAX in Vegas. Been there.

  105. It’s true, Beast looked like a total badass. If I had a choice between that and his “true form” I pick beast mode 10/10 times.

  106. Ariel was a Ginger. Keep that shit under the sea. SWIDT?

  107. Who didn’t prefer the Beast to whiny pretty boy prince? Amirite?

  108. I had a crush on Gaston.

  109. My favorite “I Want” song is “Out There”. Better than Belle. Better than Ariel.

  110. Comment faster. Phone dying. Don’t make me get out of the Big Man’s Chair

  111. Gaston was the real hero, but we got the story as written by the winners.

  112. I just looked down a list of Disney movies.

    I saw The Love Bug.

  113. Hostage Homework: Lilo and Stitch. Watch it. WATCH IT

  114. The Ugly Dachsund is awesome.

  115. I recall seeing The Love Bug at the drive-in with my parents. Old school drive-in theater in Avon, MA with the big speakers you hooked on the window. The old man was smart—insisted we wear pajamas for one less step before carrying us to bed because we’d inevitably be asleep mid way through the movie.

  116. Last time in FL, we stayed at the Live Bug wing. Dan and I are competitive Slug Bug Players. Had to call a neutral zone.

  117. Love not Live. Grrr

  118. I LOVE Lilo and Stitch!

  119. When I find myself in times of trouble
    Mother Jones prints for me
    Speaking words of failure, let it Bern.
    And in my hour of darkness
    The EPA closed the power comp’ny
    Speaking of class envy, let it Bern

    Let it Bern, let it Bern
    Let it Bern, let it Bern
    Whisper words of failure, let it Bern

    And when the broken wallet people
    Run out of money for you and me
    There will be an answer, let it Bern
    For though they may be part-time
    With no healthcare or recovery
    Socialism is not an answer, let it Bern

    (chorus)

    And when there is no oil from Saudi
    No goods to trade with the Chinese
    So much for tomorrow, let it Bern
    I still have my Coexist sticker,
    Mother Jones prints for me
    Speaking words of failure, let it Bern

    (chorus)

  120. THIS!!! Singing it Roamy!

  121. Scaring the dogs. Roamy nails it!

  122. Hey Wiser, know any singers?

  123. Thank ye kindly.

  124. *holds up lighter*

    *wonders where he got a lighter*

  125. Nice job, Roamy!

  126. She kicked ass on Forever In Mom Jeans, too. Roamy writes them. I sing them in the shower where only the dogs and Dan can hear.

  129. Did anybody rat anybody else out to the Swiss Guards for selling unlicensed Pope Francis tour T-shirts today?

  130. I H8 Pope Francis. Peronista Fuck!

  131. I saw a woman’s camel toe in a leopard print set of leggings today. That’s as close to an African Safari as I’ll ever get.

  132. I miss the Borgias.

  133. Fack. Mi familia keeps posting the POS We’re All Mexicans. FU no, we’re not. Let it Bern!

  134. I could be Messican. It’s not like there’s anyone left down there and I hear the weather is nice.

  135. Messicans are gross

  136. I’m lurking FB. Dan’s planning road trip

  137. G’night. Dan lurked my FB page. Too drunk to comment. G’night

  138. Roamy!! Two thumbs up. Excellent. My favorite part? The coexist sticker….bwaahahahaha

  139. Haha, looks like we’re gonna need a Hostage Music tab.

    Wiser, get on that.

  140. Mare’s Music

  141. Remember those pretzel dogs I posted a while back?

    They are even better with pepperjack cheese. Mozzerella is meh.

  142. Jay, youve given me gyros, pretzle daugs, and numerous recipies and devices; yet youve dropped 398 Lbs since March.

    WTF?

    Are you a wizard?

  143. 399, if he wasn’t a slacker.

  144. You have a great gift, Roamitta. We are blessed to have you near.

  145. it continues

  146. Chumpo, he’s giving you recipes he can no longer enjoy. If the world gets fatter he won’t have to lose as much weight to be the thin guy.

    He’s a monster, really.

    Hey, does anyone want my chewy date-oatmeal cookie recipe? They are good enough that I got playful marriage proposals when women put them in their mouths.

    *leaves low-hanging fruit as a gift*

  147. No.

  148. People always forget the pork.

  149. I eat everything I make. I probably could have lost 400 pounds if I didn’t.

    But, why live, then? I like cooking.

  150. Is that your tattoo buddy again, laura?

  151. What kind of a tatoo’d freak puts pork in Clam Chowda?
    Oh, that guy…

  152. During the road trip to Wisconsin my passenger and I were discussing which director wed like to see remake Disney movies.

    Quentin Tarentino – Snow White
    Eli Roth – Beauty and the Beast
    Michael Bay – Mulan
    James Cameron – Cinderella
    Martin Scorsese – Hunchback of Notre Dame
    etc.

  153. Pork chowder sounds pretty tasty. Could you smoke it in the PBC?

  154. you can smoke anything in the PBC.

    Hanging it on a hook is the trick.

  155. 101 Dalmations…..that Cruella DeVille is dripping wet.

  156. Well I am changing my Doc tomorrow.
    I may be completely wrong, but she said I need no further treatment and to see a neurologist.

    My MRI says I have a central disk herniation at C3-C4 with severe LEFT neural foraminal narrowing and mild NFN on the right.

    My RIGHT hand is numb and tingly, has been for almost 2 weeks. It feels like I am wearing thick glove, most worryingly my right arm is very weak. If I cough 110 shock runs down my arm. If I sneeze 220 bounces around for a while.

    So… nothing from my doc.
    Think a chiropractor will help?

  157. Vman,
    If you get the “Right” bone-cracker, yes.
    I had one recommended by my GP!
    He was pretty damn good.
    I told him what had happened, he did some stuff, gave me some PT to do, gave it a little time and then took some X-Rays and sent me to an orthopedic surgeon.
    The PT was helpful, but he looked at the damage and admitted;
    “I can’t fix that!”
    Not all of them are honest.
    Some are very good.
    Good luck…

  158. Thanks Chris
    I have to do something it is driving me cray cray.

  159. killed it

  160. Vman. Give Accupincture a whirl. My brother was loosing muscle mass in his leg due to pinched nerves and he got fixed in one visit. I saw it with mine own eyes.

  161. When you are alone at night
    You derp yourself for all the things
    That you believe are right
    If you give it all away
    You throw away your only chance to be here today
