  1. First! Suck it, bitches!!

  2. You lazy pups!

  3. Lookin’ hawt there Compos!

  4. Carin – sorry to read about your son’s auto accident. I hope he’s okay.

    _______________

    Back to workie work for mee.

  5. Thanks Cyn. pat says he’s ok.

  6. Why is that gentleman carrying around a mallet in his underwear?

  7. That sucks, Car in. Hope it’s not too bad!

  8. Thanks, Cyn. I gots mad paint skills.

    Best to your son, car. Glad he’s ok.

  9. Thanks for all the birthday well wishes yesterday. I went straight from work to a parish council meeting to grocery shopping and never made it back to a ‘puter. Tuesdays are terrible days for birthdays.

  10. The Blue Man Group is today’s HHD? I’m ok with that.

  11. Also, the non Blue Man looks a whole lot like somebody I’d have intentionally picked a fight with when I was younger. I hated those guys who got all the good stinkfinger.

  12. Yeah, we’re gonna need a bit more participation today.

  13. Yea… well…I’m on my kindle. I can only participate so much.

  14. My nose is kinda like Car in. It’s running and running.

  15. Glad your son is okay, CaRin. Is the car still working or are you going to be doing CrossFit Commute as you walk to work?.

  16. Best comment about O! from last night’s duhbate: “Feckless weakling”

  17. It’s driveable. But I haven’t seen the damage.

  18. So bored.

  19. Final taken. It was going ok until the last problem, when my brain completely shut down over linear transformations.

  20. I hate trying to update my resume.

  21. I miss zero interest rates already

  22. Send out the ld one. No one looks at that shit anyway.

  23. Paulatics, nobody called him a total pussy last night? Lame.

  24. Feckless weakling is a Jersey variation of said phrase.

  25. Where;s John Kasich when you need someone to scream “Get off my lawn!”?

  26. Alex, do you want a second set of eyes or just lamenting?

  27. Resume is already submitted. I’m just lamenting at this point.

  28. I refuse to do a resume.
    I did draft a CV a few months ago, but I’ve been doing this for almost a decade and a half. I don’t think anyone who might hire me cares about the fact that I worked for a bank in the mid-nineties.

  29. And someone asking for my social media passwords? Ha!

    I don’t think so.

  30. Best of luck, then. I just had to polish mine. I can’t wait to move on from this. I mean that figuratively. Obviously I can and will wait, I just really want to get on with the next chapter in my career.

  31. Good Lord, idiot lib just keeps getting stupider.

    We were just discussing Obama’s handling of investigations into possible radical terrorists in the US. I mentioned that there had been an ongoing investigation into one of the SB shooters that was stopped by the admin because they thought it would make them look “racist.”

    Him: “Well, maybe that’s what happened, or maybe it’s more sophisticated than that.”

    Me: “Oh, perhaps I’m not seeing the nuance of his strategy? IS that what you’re telling me?

    Him: “Yes.”

    Me: “Hmmm.. yeah, ya see, this is what pisses me off about you. You want to be so above it all and have this oh-so-superior above-it-all attitude about the threats we face, and meanwhile 14 more Americans are dead.”

    Him: “HAHAHAHA!!! You’re trying to tie what happened in California to Obama’s handling of the terror threat? How dumb you are!”

    Me: “Okay. You’re right. The Obama admin’s canceling of the investigation of one of the SB shooters 2 years ago has nothing to do with the SB shooting that the aforementioned no-longer-being-watched- SB-shooter committed. That’s some damn fine nuance you got going on there.”

  32. Good Lord, idiot lib just keeps getting stupider.

    Where worship short-circuits logic. See also Trump, Donald.

  33. I also mentioned how the admin was changing reports from those on the ground in the ME to make the situation look better than it really was, yet another example of how this admin is ignoring the real threats we are facing.

    A) He hadn’t heard that, so, in his words, it can’t be true. (“Well, how do we know those 50 people are telling the truth?” “Ummm… recent events?”)

    and

    B) Perhaps it’s more sophisticated than I am making it out to be.

    And then he wonders why I blow my top when he starts this bullshit.

    He also said that Republicans should just change their name to the American Fascist Party.

    “Why?,” i ask, stupidly engaging his buffoonery.

    “Well, they just want to randomly kill innocent women and children.”

    “Huh. Have you ever heard of Dresden? Hiroshima? Nagasaki? Do you remember which party was in the White House when those attacks were ordered?”

    “Well, yeah, but that doesn’t make them right.”

    “Gotcha. Ending a World War was such a stupid goal. Nuance again?”

  34. I guess I shouldn’t surprised by his ignorance. He thinks CNN is the best source of news anywhere and currently, on their home page, is a link to an article asking “What happened to the Double Rainbow Guy?”

    Yannow, super important stuff like that.

    Meanwhile, the world burns….

    And Obama’s on vacation.

    Again.

  35. People like idiot lib are why I quit facebook.

  36. He also said that Republicans should just change their name to the American Fascist Party.

    Was this before or after he said that members of the NRA should be killed and that conservatives should be put in re-education camps?

  37. The comment from Insty earlier is brilliant. If we really were the fascists they claim we are… they wouldn’t be here to make the claim, or they’d be deathly afraid to make the claim.

  38. People like idiot lib are why I quit facebook.

    I have to be here. I have no idea why someone would put up with people that stupid intentionally.

  39. I bitched about the stimulus bill, spending hundreds of millions of dollars upgrading toilets in National parks

    Idiot lib responded “well at least we aren’t spending it on war.”

    No, this is IN ADDITION to spending money on two wars.

    She was the last straw.

  40. Facebook was designed to destroy families.

  41. One of idiot libs better ideas (/sarc) was for the US to print and print and print and print money until all the ink ran out, and then print some more, and spend it on museums and concert halls and the like, because that would stimulate the economy and the country would be a much better place to live, what with all that art surrounding us.

    So what if we go 800 gajillion into debt! Who cares!! We did that after WWII and look how well that worked then!

    Oh, and a 90% tax rate was also in place after WWII, so what’s wrong with bringing that back too?

    You may ask why he is so ignorant.

    He has a degree in philosophy, yet he teaches drums at a music store and takes home approx, $100 a week.

    So yeah… we’re talking sooper-genius here.

  42. Having ass-sucking democrats in your family destroys family.

  43. No, this is IN ADDITION to spending money on two wars.

    But Obama didn’t start those wars!!!!

    (typical meaningless response that distracts from actual point attempting to be made.)

  44. He also said that Republicans should just change their name to the American Fascist Party.

    If that is so, then why isn’t his ass locked up, yet?

  45. luckily, the few libs in my family and I have agreed to never discuss politics.

    I think the last one who agreed to that was the one who, after seeing that FiL and I were watching a documentary on the sinking of the USS Oriskanny (in order to allow it to become and artificial reef), and without watching a single second of the doc on how they cleaned the ship, she complained that that’s why we have global warming.

    After several uncomfortable minutes for her, we came to an understanding.

  46. But Obama didn’t start those wars!!!!

    No but he continued them, f*cked with three other countries – Egypt, Libya, Syria, unleashed ISIS and with Hillary, got his ambassador killed.

  47. Unhappiness INC.

  48. Not to mention Mr. “I’m good at killing” droned many an innocent man, woman, and child during his ‘double taps’.

  49. I have to be here. I have no idea why someone would put up with people that stupid intentionally.

    Honestly, it can be very instructive,

    If I was a psych researcher, I think I could propose a lifetime of grant proposals to study the various types of commenters there.

  50. If that is so, then why isn’t his ass locked up, yet?

    Well, under a maniacal President Cruz, he would be, doncha know.

    He’s originally from Canada, which also explains his insufferable personality. He constantly tells me how fucking awesome Canada is compared to the US

    I’m waiting for him to say something about the suggestions that we halt immigration of Muslims to the US. I’m sure he would tell me that “Canada would never do that!”

    I already have this printed out for him:

    http://tinyurl.com/ho34ffn

    http://tinyurl.com/ho34ffn

  51. Honestly, it can be very instructive,

    It is very instructive, especially when it comes ot understanding the thought processes of the morons who seem to have taken over my state.

    It also helps me prepare for my show. When idiots call up to argue with me, I’m prepared for them.

    I’ve got one guy who always wants to argue about people like the Koch brothers are buying our political system. I have a great breakdown and analysis of data I took from Opensecrets.org that blows that stupidity right out of the water. The numbers show how much more the Dems pull in from public and private sector unions, as well as billionaires like Tom Steyer and George Soros.

    Of the top donors to the political parties, Steyer is in the top 10, Soros is #17.

    The Koch brothers come in at #50.

    But they’re the problem.

    Top 5 donaters are unions. And they gave 99% of their money to Dems. The moron that called about this actually said that the unions NEED to donate that kind money to fight against evil corporatist like the Kochs.

    Completely oblivious to the irony in that comment

  52. Facts don’t matter.

    They are mentally ill.

  53. Women and children all over Europe are getting raped by immigrants, but if you talk about it you are racist.

    Mental illness or brainwashed cult.

  54. It’s just part of their culture.

  55. Facts don’t matter.
    They are mentally ill.

    They are true believers.

  56. They are mentally ill.</

    I told idiot lib that I didn't watch the debate. He tells me that Cruz said he wants to "carpet-bomb" the ME.

    I shook my head and repeated, "I didn't watch it, but I doubt that what he actually said."

    "I saw him say it. He doesn't care about killing innocent woman and children. He wants to carpet-bomb the ME."

    "Again, I didn't watch it, so I can't argue nor will I argue with you about this."

    "HE said it! I saw him say it myself."

    From CNN's website"

    Wolf Blitzer, the CNN anchor moderating the debate, pushed Cruz for more details.

    “Would you carpet bomb Raqqah, the ISIS capital, where there are a lot of civilians? Yes or no?” Blitzer asked, using another name for Islamic State.

    Cruz said no.

    “You would carpet bomb where ISIS is, not a city, but the location of the troops,” Cruz said. “You use air power directed — and you have embedded special forces to direction the air power. But the object isn’t to level a city. The object is to kill the ISIS terrorists.”

  57. Facechimp is for masochists.

  58. And sadists.

  59. Actually, that’s Fetbook. But sometimes it’s hard to tell the two apart.

  60. Ahh, yes…

    Erm, um, I mean, I have no idea what that means.

  61. This is where he got that crap

    http://theweek.com/articles/592964/ted-cruz-wants-nuke-middle-east

    It’s not what he said, it’s what The Week heard.

  62. From Scott’s link, “glowing sand”. Ha ha!

    This would make a great band name.

  63. The Weak.

  64. If you ever need to move/ship a large rug, this trick is amazing.

    http://is.gd/jVFYzl

  65. OMG there’s *one* Canadian at my work and he’s the biggest douchebag. Smarmy, condescending, eminently punchable.

    So, last two finals today completed. Now a month off.

    I’ve got a LOT of treats to make, people.

  66. If it’s in a lefty rag its a fact.

    If it’s not published in a lefty rag it’s not a fact.

    Idiot lib rule # 47.

  67. Scott, that guys rug shop is like 5 miles from my haus.

  68. The Canadian physicians I work with love the USA.

  69. Guess there’s a difference between providing single payer health care and consuming it, eh?

  70. I found that video a couple of years ago. I am always amazed by how well it works.

  71. Go back to Canada!

    *looks east of office*
    *gives Canada the bird*
    *realizes Detroit is in line of fire*

    Meh, collateral damage.

  72. I don’t know if it was here or on another of the 17 blogs we’ve cycled through over the years, but there was this thing a while back where we talked about what ‘your theme sound would be,’ if there were a theme that played whenever you walked into a room.

    Mine was ‘rattlesnake,’ for a while. Then I changed it to ‘clap of thunder.’

    Now it’s this: http://is.gd/ImvQeq

  73. My theme music is anything by Zamphir.

  74. So, you’re happy to be done for a month huh?

    How about a list of the treats you plan to make!

  75. Shush, stinkfinger.

  76. So, last two finals today completed. Now a month off.

    *rolls out the extra-large margarita machine*

  77. *unhinges jaw

  78. Evening.

  79. *rolls out the extra-large margarita machine*

    http://is.gd/mmGL7r

  80. I have a little retard piggie. I named her Algernon.

  81. Still haven’t narrowed down the list of treats.

    Narrowing down the list of treats, and then making a shopping list, is on my to-do list.

  82. Instead of all that goody and candy-making, this is what I *should* be making for everybody for Christmas: http://is.gd/CWkNfo

    It’s an awkward thing to put under the tree, but I bet you it would be incredibly well received by virtually everybody.

  83. The Christmas bacon is baconning.

  84. *look* at that picture. I feel like if I hit it with the flat side of a knife it would just shatter into little crunchy pork shards of joy.

  85. Are we still playing stink finger, or did Miley Cyrus have a bath?

  86. Is Christmas bacon anything like Ramadan bacon?

  87. http://is.gd/mmGL7r

    Woo hoo! I’m breaking out the BIG red solo cups.

  88. SS GIFT HAS ARRIVED!!!

    The box looks big enough to hold a small pony.

    I GOT A PONY!!!!!

  89. If the box isn’t leaking, it’s not a pony

  90. >>>>*look* at that picture

    *drooooooooooooool……

  91. >>>>>If the box isn’t leaking, it’s not a pony

    brb………..

    IT’S A PONY!!!!

  92. You’re not supposed to open it until Sunday.

  93. Did anybody fail to turn up any mentions of the “naked massage ceremony” that anybody else claimed was a traditional part of their culture during their extensive research today?

  94. I haven’t opened it.

    I can just tell.

    PONY! PONY! PONY!!

    And what time Sunday? I gotta do a shift at the station.

  95. Global Warming:Fiiddle

    Islamic Jihad:Rome

    SAT Practice Question.

  96. There is only one Santa (peace be upon him). Anyone found worshiping any other santa (secret or otherwise) is an apostate and must be beheaded (to please the one and true santa)

    Hey, I don’t make the rules so don’t go busting my balls.

  97. And what time Sunday? I gotta do a shift at the station.

    Your wife and I are getting together this weekend. If we settle on Sunday, we should drunk-call you at work.

  98. *high fives Laura and WiserBride*

  99. >>>>There is only one Santa (peace be upon him).

    SANTANA AKBAR!!!

  100. >>>>>If we settle on Sunday, we should drunk-call you at work.

    PLAY CHRISTMAS SHOES!!! *giggle*

  101. OMG there’s *one* Canadian at my work and he’s the biggest douchebag. Smarmy, condescending, eminently punchable.

    What is it with the Canadians? In the collector group I used to be in, the nastiest tempered, condescending, smug shitbags were Canadian.

    A facebook friend, who is Canadian, is the only one I’ve ‘met’ who isn’t a douche. He’s a funny fothermucker. His brother just moved to TX.

  102. I got 6 thingies froze off my person today. They have finally stopped hurting and are blistering nicely.

  103. *re-insert picture of crispy roast here*

  104. Oso? Love the mustache and sombrero…..

    http://tinyurl.com/jl7kdlw

  105. OMG Christmas Shoes. I would never. Whoever wrote that song needs to be beaten with a bag of frozen dicks.

  106. * checks Drudge Report *

    I am done with the GOP. DONE!

  107. Most evil song ever written.

    Worse than the any Wagner work or the soundtrack to Leni Riefenstahl’s Triumph of the Will

  108. >>>>am done with the GOP. DONE!

    As much as I despise Trump and trust him absolutely not at all, after shit like that, I consider voting for him more and more, just to hasten the end-times

  109. Vlad has a secret:

    http://tinyurl.com/o6yqd9m

  110. I’ll hope for Cruz, but I will welcome Trump.

  111. Car in, hope your son is ok. Pepe, that is the gheyest thing EVER! Jew, great name. Flowers for Algernon was such a tearjerker story. Sean made me love Christmas Shoes. Waves at all y’all

  112. GOP is just Democrats that lie more.

  113. OK, definite treat list (same as last year):
    little jars of hot mustard
    little jars of toasted tahini
    smoked bacon
    little jars of lemon marmelade
    sesame candy
    butter pecan cookies
    spiced nuts

    Possible additions:
    toffee
    truffles
    little smoked linguica links

    I’ll have to be feeling pretty ambitious and be done with all my other chores before I make sausage again. We’ll see.

    Pork shoulders are mighty cheap right now…

  114. >>>>There is only one Santa (peace be upon him).
    SANTANA AKBAR!!!
    ————————————-
    Normally Richard isn’t funny, but Santa Akbar is GDH.

  115. Just read Drudge. Where’s Brutus when you need corrupt leadership taken care of?

  116. Beasn, are you talking about Dudley being a nice/funny Canadian?

  117. … is GDH.

    I got this! My Oso decoder ring is working again!

  118. Our schedules are so whack next week, I’ll be going to a movie on Christmas for the first time ever!!!!

  119. >>>>Normally Richard isn’t funny, but Santa Akbar is GDH.

    Fuck you, Elf on the Shelf

  120. Our schedules are so whack next week, I’ll be going to a movie on Christmas for the first time ever!!!!|

    I didn’t know those kinds of theatres were open on Christmas Day.

  121. “My Oso decoder ring is working again!”

    I just nod and smile.

  122. “Santa and the REALLY Bad Helper”

  123. Scott wins.

  124. I love Wagner. Don’t care. If I had music that played when I entered a room if would be his.

  125. Dan was scraping frost off car windows this AM. Neighbor with Boxer told him that there were 3 coyotes in the grassy area next to our Condo. 1 was yuge! Other 2 were regular coyotes. No fear. Just chilling.

  126. Jajaja. I talk in acronyms!

  127. Ha ha ha…which one by Wagner, Leon? Because you know that right now all I can hear is Ride of the Valkyries.

  128. NKWTM.

  129. We’ve had frost here for two mornings; have had to resort to putting a bed sheet across the windshield since we don’t have scrapers. Worked amazingly well.

  130. *nods and smiles*

  131. holy fucking shit, Cyn just invented the Frost Sheet™

  132. Pretty sad that the cabal has nice weather and San Diego to NM has icky cold. Low of 17 last night. Teens again tonight.

  133. Nobody here in Frosty Windshield Land covers their windshields at night. We just scrape in the morning. Which is eleventy times more work, when you have the least time to spare.

    D’OH

  134. Tristan and Isolde, Faust, pretty much anything.

  135. How do you figure this is a sad situation, Oso?

  136. Credit cards work in a pinch.

  137. The sheet would potentially freeze to your car here and rip off paint.

    I just got done “fixing” our dryer by crawling under the deck and then going in the crawlspace while my wife snaked the vent tube. It was solid lint, so the snake got stuck and I had to destroy the tube to free it. Running the dryer now with the exhaust emptying straight into the crawlspace. I’ll replace the tube on Friday or something.

  138. Aren’t your trees starting to blossom due to higher than normal temps?

  139. You are supposed to burn off the lint every couple of years.

  140. It looked like no one had ever, ever cleaned that tube. Never had the problem in Ann Arbor, but the dryer had a much finer lint screen.

  141. Aren’t your trees starting to blossom due to higher than normal temps?

    Yes yes, this is a tragedy.

  142. NKWTM. Nods Knowingly While Taking Meds?

  143. We’ve lost apples, cherries, and apricots to warm Decembers followed by frigid Januaries. (Not me, but family)

  144. Throwing a couple of gallons of boiling water on your frozen windshield is always a good move. But only if you get your wipers going before the water refreezes.

  145. If it’s only down to 10 or 15 degrees fahrenheit (but no colder!), you can usually clear your windshield in a jiffy just by licking it.

  146. **does cover of Christmas Shoes**

    **runs like hell*

  147. Wow, we did a knife raffle to raise money for the local giving tree (presents for needy kids) and the local food bank. It raised over $4,600 in three days. Knife people are generous. Penelope will get to go buy presents for the kids and do the charitable stuff tomorrow. Sadly, no hookers and blow this time around.

  148. Your knives are beautiful. I expect Chumpo to use pics from your knife blog as art.

  149. You can clean dryer lint by dumping a few ounces of lighter fluid in the dryer every 10 loads or so. Check the hose with a lit match……

  150. Beasn, are you talking about Dudley being a nice/funny Canadian?

    Duncan, yes.

  151. Grrr. Dan made soup. 1. I H8 soup. B. If I have to eat soup, I like it tepid. Not hot. 25 years married. Dan: Eat your soup. Me: It’s hot. Dan: It’ll help your cold and sore throat. Me: Cite some sources. Dan: Put your phone down and eat your soup. FIN

  152. I’m not an artist, I just make stuff.

  153. Beasn, I like him. He calls me Nell after I started calling him Dudley.

  154. Thank you, Cyn, sorry I fell down on the job again. I got banned at work, and it’s got me discombobulated.

  155. YEAH YOU BETTER RUN SPACE GIRL

    ignore me, she’s nice

  156. I got banned at work, and it’s got me discombobulated.

    Time to go work at SpaceX.

  157. Mrs Caruthers and I are trying to figure out how to spend our HSA money on a new bewb pump before the end of the year.

  158. Pretty sad that the cabal has nice weather and San Diego to NM has icky cold. Low of 17 last night. Teens again tonight.

    It’s supposed to be hitting the 50s until Christmas, here.

    *not checking Drudge because I want to get some sleep tonight*

    Someone tell me in one or two sentences what the f*ckers did.

  159. I’m not giving up that easy. Push comes to shove, I’ll go up the management chain or file a union complaint. My temporary boss decided that since I have heart trouble, I should not be allowed to do any lab work. She made it official with a cease and desist sort of thing. This will teach me to keep my damn mouth shut, because if I hadn’t told her when she was just a friend and co-worker what I was going through, I wouldn’t be dealing with her nosiness now. Today I tried to get my regular cardiologist to write a letter outlining what I can and can’t do, because fuck me running if I let the NASA doctors who can’t even pronounce my name correctly do the deciding. Hoping for more success tomorrow.

  160. Start your own asteroid mining company. I’ll help.

  161. Hang in there Romacita! You got this!

  162. My temporary boss decided that since I have heart trouble, I should not be allowed to do any lab work.

    Okay, maybe I have the wrong idea here, but when I think “NASA lab work” I don’t immediately compare it with say, HIIT or CrackFat.

  163. You go Roamie! Don’t let them push you around. You can always threaten to drop some space debris (like a satellite) on their house.

  164. Tel them the “spores” you accidentally got on your arm from the last experiment cured your heart condition……and let you grow really gnarly tentacles. :)

  165. Today I tried to get my regular cardiologist to write a letter outlining what I can and can’t do

    Is he going to do write one for you? And why is this an issue now when you’ve been working there how long with your heart problem and it wasn’t a problem then?

  166. Gorilla glue has been deployed to fix wobbly chairs.
    My new Doc wants to ultra sound my liver. It has been high for decades, a biopsy said ‘”fatty liver” What is the Ultra Sound going to show? Seriously numbers and types of cells vs pretty pictures?

    Gabe goes back to the Doc for the 3rd time in a month and a half. I need to get the swelling under control. Drugs aren’t working, can we drain it? It is bigger than a golf ball, and smaller than a hard ball or tennis ball, but it is bigger than a week ago.

    How does this work? Keep him from moving for a few weeks? Immobilize his lag? I am at my whit’s end.

  167. Hang on to your hopes, my friend
    That’s an easy thing to say
    But if your hopes should pass away
    Simply pretend that you can derp them again

  168. Roamy –

    change your name to Abia Alima Roamina Fakira Al-Baghdadi

    they will provide the required dispensation(s) then

    after all NASA is a muslim outreach program n’est-ce pas?

  169. why is this an issue now when you’ve been working there how long with your heart problem and it wasn’t a problem then?

    She’s temporary boss and is covering her ass. 53-year-old in the other group in the building dropped dead of a heart attack earlier this year (at home, not at work), but he had no previous health problems and wasn’t even overweight.

    I got overheated and had to go sit down and drink some water. That’s what started all this. She threatened to fire the technician helping me because he didn’t call 911. I didn’t need 911, I needed a cold drink and a chair. I told her that she’s overreacting and that I’ll be sure not to let on to anyone that I’m feeling crappy in the future.

    It’s been just over 5 years since my surgery.

  170. Jam, there’s an idea.
