  1. Wakey wakey.

  2. adidas dude looks photoshopped
    or he’s a baby tyrannosaur
    trannysaur

  3. We ran it a while by duct taping the door shut but it would pop open mid cycle and need retaping. Short term solution.

    what is this place coming to?

  4. I think the point Scott was making is that the switch can just be removed. When you open the door the drum keeps spinning because it doesn’t know the door is open. You’d need to manually advance the cycle switch for it to shut down.

    I think. The switch might do more than that.

  5. Oh, then the cycle switch would shit the bed and I’d be dealing with another problem.

  6. And I think the point I was making had nothing to do with duct taping the switch.

    I’m so very disappointed.

  7. Wait, somebody in here had a point? Since when?

  8. What’s your point J’ames?

  9. My point is there isn’t a point, hasn’t been a point, and a point hasn’t been forecast for quite some time.

  10. What is that on top of your head?

  11. Not hair.

  12. Not everything is about you, leon.

  13. I’ve taken up solipsism as a philosophy, so it really is.

  14. Next Leon will become a nihilist.

    “Now’s the time on Sprockets when we deadlift!”

  15. Either way, you’re all just NPCs.

  16. Still don’t get it. But that first chick is pretty amazing.

  17. Also, quick question for Leon.

    How did the dinosaurs go extinct?

  18. Noah didn’t let them on the Ark.

  19. First chick better be amazing, she spent a lot for the bags of WD40 on her front.

  20. Come on, Car in, that was 4000 years ago.

  21. True story- 10 years ago or so:

    I’m driving Ethan and another (little younger) boy to a soccer game. His family was very fundamentalist. So they’re talking about what dinosaurs they like, and ethan mentions he loved some huge swimming dinosaur, and they lament that they’re no longer around. They get around to how they went extinct, and this little boy says it was the flood.

    To which Ethan replies … BUT IT COULD SWIM.

    I quickly changed the subject.

  22. /punches J’ames in the vage

  23. Oh so we’re a snooty French blog now? Vage?

  24. How did the dinosaurs go extinct?

    Cheap carbs and porn.

  25. Poon Punching

  26. Soy. Soy killed the dinosaurs.

  27. The Deluge is almost certainly a real event, based on a near-global memory of a catastrophic end of the last major glaciation. We live in that flooded world even now. It didn’t kill the dinosaurs.

    But it did kill the Atlanteans.

  28. The atlanteans were killed in a war with the people living in the hollow Earth.

  29. The atlanteans were killed in a war with the people living in the hollow Earth.

    Now that’s just silly. There’re at least some solid hints at the LMG being ended by a cosmic impact, and we know on a planetary scale the lost/flooded land was something like 2 Australias, that it happened about 12000 years ago, which lines up with Plato’s dating of it in 9600BC. The only question is how rapidly the flooding took place.

  30. Hollow Earth. Eesh. At least that one allows the planet to be round, I guess.

  31. PBS had on a program which said where the giant meteor hit, in the ocean, is what brought an end to most critters at that time. Don’t remember the technical terms….They confirmed the chain of events with a layer of ‘???’ found at ‘whatever depth’ from various places around the globe….and most of the dinosaur fossils under that layer.

    *beams with public school larnin’ pride*

  32. In case you missed it….L to R….Leon, Possum.

  33. Evidence for the Asteroid Impact Hypothesis

    http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/evolution/extinction/dinosaurs/asteroid.html

  34. I’ve killed too many of them to turn back now. I have to. If they poop or pee in the hay, the horses could die. Plus the theft from and threat to the barn cats.

  35. Found it. Was on Nova. Pretty interesting.

    http://www.pbs.org/video/day-the-dinosaurs-died-rooax3/

  36. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Younger_Dryas_impact_hypothesis

    Basically the hypothesis is that a comet hit the North American ice sheet.

    I think the dinosaurs got hit with a much bigger version.

  37. isn’t there a layer in the crust with a bunch of iridium? I can’t hit the vid links at work.

  38. Chixulub, that’s what I was looking for: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicxulub_crater

  39. Hit it like the Hammer of Thor? nah, hit it like Chicxulub!

  40. leon, I just thought that possum was kinda cute. You gotta do what you gotta do to protect your other animals from critters that become a nuisance.
    I think voles and coons are cute too, but not in my garden. SNAP!!

  41. Jay, yes to the iridium.

  42. It’s interesting that you mention Thor. The sagas about Ragnarok are basically the Norse legend of the Deluge, right down to one surviving human couple riding out the storm inside a tree and repopulating the world.

  43. From my first link:
    Impact Crater
    This 150-kilometer-wide crater lies just off the Yucatan peninsula. Scientists calculate that it was blasted into Earth by a 10-kilometer-wide asteroid or comet traveling 30 kilometers per second — 150 times faster than a jet airliner.

    Scientists have concluded that the impact that created this crater occurred 65 million years ago. The date corresponds perfectly to the date of the dinosaur extinction.

    Rare Metal
    The metal iridium, which is similar to platinum, is very rare on Earth’s surface but is more common in asteroids and in molten rock deep within the planet.

    Scientists have discovered levels of iridium 30 times greater than average in the Cretaceous/Tertiary (KT) boundary, the layer of sedimentary rock laid down at the time of the dinosaur extinction.

    Melted Rock
    These pieces of once-molten rock, called impact ejecta, are evidence of an explosion powerful enough to instantly melt bedrock and propel it more than a hundred miles from its origin.

    Ranging in size from large chunks to tiny beads, impact ejecta are common at or near the Cretaceous/Tertiary (KT) boundary, the geological layer that defines the dinosaur extinction.

    Fractured Crystals
    These crystals, often called “shocked quartz,” show a distinctive pattern of fracturing caused by high-energy impacts or explosions.

    Some scientists maintain that the fracture pattern in these quartz crystals could only have been caused by a massive asteroid or comet impact. The pattern is prevalent in quartz found at or near the Cretaceous/Tertiary (KT) boundary, the geological layer deposited at the time of the extinction.

    Fossil Record
    A gradual decline in the number of dinosaur species would likely mirror an equally gradual cause of their ultimate extinction. Conversely, a sudden “now you see them, now you don’t” end to the dinosaurs implies a catastrophic cause. Depending on location and interpretation, the fossil record seems to say different things.

    Some paleontologists see evidence in the fossil record that dinosaurs were doing quite well prior to the end of the Cretaceous — that they were in no way declining in abundance when the impact occurred.

  44. Aww, the NYT is defending Ted The Swimmer Kennedy since Chappaquiddick was released.

  45. It’s interesting that you mention Thor. The sagas about Ragnarok are basically the Norse legend of the Deluge, right down to one surviving human couple riding out the storm inside a tree and repopulating the world.

    You can’t post a creation story without a warning label, leon. Let’s protect the children, mmmkay?

  46. Then the Nova link goes about discovering all of that. They go to the impact site and bring up core samples…then compare it to other sites around the world.

  47. the Deluge could be the tidal wave/tsunami from Chicxulub, too.

  48. But it was only 4000 years ago, evolutionist!

  49. To nitpick, that’s not a creation story, Jay, it’s a mythologized historical record of a catastrophe. There are flood “myths” all over the world, not just later in Genesis after the Fall of Man.

  50. Did the surviving human couple have the Norse names of Adam and Eve?

  51. That’s THEIR creation story. There’s more than one in the Bible, too.

  52. *aims a possum-shaped meteor at Iowa*

  53. *prepares the “Sky isn’t really blue” argument to set someone off

  54. No, that’s their recovery story. The creation story is earlier, just like in Genesis.

    Did the surviving human couple have the Norse names of Adam and Eve?

    This was reportedly a tactic often used by successful Christian missionaries to the region.

  55. The ‘sky is…’ depends on where one stands in time.

  56. It’s grey.

    Factoid, supposedly most “blue” birds don’t have any actual blue pigments, just structural coloring. Crush the feathers, grind them up, and you can’t dye anything with any of the chemicals.

  57. Bus crash in Saskatchewan, killing 14 hockey players and coaches, collided with a semi truck.

  58. Sounds kind of like ‘The Golden Fleece’. It was all shiny, glittering, polished, and pretty hanging in the tree….until Jason’s foe took it and it went dull brown.

  59. Jay, wasn’t that a few days ago?

  60. Friday

  61. The global warmening/cooling is nuts. It will be in the 70s by Weds.

  62. I suspect that the global prevalence of flood myths is due as much to psychology as an actual event. Early human tribes living near rivers and lakes and oceans would have been aware of the dangers of flooding and possibly seen cycles of flooding and regrowth. Over time it became embedding deep in our brains. Add in climate shifts and a few devastating regional events and flood myths develop.

  63. In honor of Mike Rowe being on last week’s HHD, I leave here the comedy stylings of his mother:

    https://tinyurl.com/yarqy7tv

  64. Whats all this crazy talk about creation? Everybody knows whitey von white people were actually seeded here by extraterrestrials after combining their dna with “local” dna already here……

    (I swear to god if I have to put a sarc tag here Im gonna kick somebody in the POON)

  65. That’s almost certainly part of it, Alex. We need to be near water to live, and the ocean/sea/lake/river is a huge resource that’s usually a boon to life that sometimes washes away any and all. That said, lots of geological stuff says “big flood, really fast”.

  66. If you read Adam and Eve as symbolic of early agricultural man, then Genesis tracks pretty well with the rise of early civilizations in the near East.

  67. Just heard about the crash, sidebar at AOS. Sad.

  68. Cain slays Abel -> Farmer slays Hunter, I know.

  69. Not a hunter, a herdsman. Both farmers and ranchers need land and water, which puts them into conflict.

  70. Chi, I love those letters from Mike’s mom.

  71. Jay, did you see Molina wanting to slug the Diamondback’s manager?

  72. Yes, and I thought he should have been ejected.

  73. Raising animals is generally a better use of land, more nutrition per acre if wisely managed, so I see God’s point there.

  74. Never make a mom joke to Yadi. Lesson learned.

  75. Your mom is quite familiar with “impact ejecta”

  76. leon, God intended us to be vegan, so you must be wrong.

  77. Clearly, based on Cain’s offering being rejected, God intended us to be responsible carnivores.

  78. Moose demands we live near water too. He went for a nice long swim a bit ago.

  79. His favorite thing is to go swimming and then come right inside.

    The other day, he went swimming at stayed out for a while. Unfortunately, when he came in eventually, all the frozen water icicles on his body melted and I had just as big of a mess.

  80. I had never seen them, Beasn. It showed up randomly on my YouTube “recommended” list. I watched a couple – they’re hilarious. That woman is a national treasure and should be writing sitcoms for TV.

  81. Raising animals is generally a better use of land, more nutrition per acre if wisely managed, so I see God’s point there.

    Farming led to the growth of writing and a centralized government, which pushed out the libertarian herdsmen displaying true LIBERTY in the face of their protostatist oppressors… sorry, I thought I was commenting on Instapundit for a second.

    But seriously, if you view Cain and Able as a separation of early agricultural man into two tribes, farmers and herders, then it makes sense that Cain goes off and founds cities. Farming requires greater infrastructure and legal institutions, and encourages writing and mathematics.

  82. Right, primitive pastoralists tend to continue in nomadic migration rather than intensive grazing that necessitates calendars and specialized trade.

  83. Chi, this one is comedy gold….a little passive aggressive…woven in with the story of how she lost ‘Old Blue’…her purse.

  84. Both farmers and ranchers need land and water, which puts them into conflict.

    Wasn’t that the whole plot to that Kevin Costner movie Open Range?

  85. Cowboys driving cattle across the prairie were overwhelmingly vegan.

    –facts I just made up

  86. Wasn’t that the whole plot to that Kevin Costner movie Open Range?

    Heh, I was going to make a comment about how it was the earliest version of Open Range, but decided against it.

  87. No, the point was that Harman, the rancher, resented Boss and Charlie because they were free grazers. Harman considered that they were stealing from him.

  88. Add in climate shifts and a few devastating regional events and flood myths develop.

    Summary: California rules, red states drool. What we need is more California because California is on the right side of history (he really uses this exact phrase). The red states are regressing because of Trump and we enlightened few need to keep telling those retrogrades that we’re better so we don’t ever get Trump again because he’s just awful.

    To which I say, please tell me more about how awful I am so that the I don’t make the wrong choice by voting for the guy that understands that you hate me and wants to defend me from you.

    The Left is stone cold fucked if they keep doubling down on the deplorable argument expecting it to work.

  90. So far the Left’s platform is:

    I hate Trump (this is actually a pretty good argument)
    I want to take your guns
    I want to raise your taxes
    Sending your money to every shithole nation is your duty
    Shut up, there are 67 genders, racist
    You must suck a tranny dick to prove you’re cool
    16 year olds should vote

  91. The Dems have been divided for decades between the Academics and the Pragmatics. The former are the true believers in socialism, communism, social justice, etc. The latter are dems because it’s useful, but also tend to be a lot more moderate. Clinton was a pragmatic, or at least aligned with them. Obama was the first Academic. Once he won the election, the far left believed that they no longer had to pretend to like the pragmatics, whose ranks included blue-collar, union workers, and the like. The masks came off, and they don’t want to admit that they were wrong and put them back on.

  92. The Confederacy was based on an agrarian economy dependent on slaves. The Union was based on a new kind of capitalist manufacturing economy dependent on free labor.

    WTF? Is he high as well as crazed? He equated the two without clarifying.

  93. Agreed, it’s always been a split between the academics and the pragmatics. I would say that Clinton came from the academic wing too, but tried to be pragmatic and failed.

    Mostly because she’s a terrible actor/liar and when she’s honest people hate her even more.

  94. Oh, Hillary was an Academic through and through, which is why she lost. She couldn’t hide her disdain for the riff-raff.

  95. Slick Willy was much better at placating the rubes.

  96. He equated the two without clarifying.
    ———————
    I think he was equating the split between current day red/blue states in terms of morality.

    The red states are dependent on fossil fuel usage while blue states are on working to combat climate change and adopt renewables.

    And if you think about it, doing nothing personally but advocating for government money to spend on proven technological failures is exactly the same as standing 100 yards from an enemy with a smooth bore, 50 caliber rifle pointed en masse at you. Especially the part about knowing that if you’re hit you’ll most likely die from infection when they cut off your arm without anesthesia with a dirty hacksaw. Its just like driving a Prius if you think about it. Almost exactly the same.

  97. Very nice! If I drive a Prius my arm will fall off.

  98. That whole fucking thing reads like a parody.

  99. What we need is more California because California is on the right side of history

    So….peeing and shitting in the streets willy-nilly is the “right side of history”?

    Beam me up, Scotty – I’ve been living on the wrong side of history all of my life.

  100. Saw about 20 seconds of an “intellectual” on some news program who was saying that in urban environments people even much faster. That’s why the urban dwellers are so much more advanced than the people in the rest of the country.

  101. I’m still trying to discern the scintilla of contrast between “free labor” and “slavery”, but it’s likely the ambiguity of “free”. Very poor choice of words on his part.

  102. That whole fucking thing reads like a parody.
    —————–
    That’s what I thought too. At one point I went back to check what I was reading and if the theses was snarky or honest.

    Sad!

  103. “Evolve” not even. Stupid autocorrect

  104. Glad to see the kids back in the header pic. It’s amazing that EVERY header pic caption works well with their expressions.

    Also: COCK!

  105. Because they aren’t the ones screwing their relatives.

    Oh, Hillary was an Academic through and through, which is why she lost. She couldn’t hide her disdain for the riff-raff.

    ———

    She was such an academic she flunked the DC bar exam and was such a cock up that she got fired for lying her ass off when she couldn’t get shit right.

  107. Hillary Clinton lies, cheats and steals for money. Money to her was the smart set she was never a part of. Money is also power. She’s a money grabbing dumb political whore who has had a, “I’m not pretty enough” chip on her shoulder which makes her, besides being a horrible politician, a real bitch through and through.

  108. She was such an academic she flunked the DC bar exam and was such a cock up that she got fired for lying her ass off when she couldn’t get shit right.

    Academic doesn’t mean smart. It means that they are most comfortable in those kinds of settings, where everything is theoretical and they pretend that they can make the world work however they want it to work. Where the more complex the idea is, the better it is. Etc.

  109. Oh and Eff facebook and all who support it. Learn to stay connected to family and friends with a phone, a letter or a drive. Shit, I’m connected and I don’t have an account.

    True, Alex and well said. I just wanted an excuse to show Hillary’s dumbness and call her a political whore.

  111. Both farmers and ranchers need land and water, which puts them into conflict.

    There has to be a “Waterworld” joke in here somewhere. I’m just not smart enough to fish it out.

  112. Mare, Hillary is Tracy Flick fifty years later.

  113. When I hear the name John McCain, the words hate, asshole, attention whore, sell out, phony and constipated mysteriously come into my mind.

  114. Academics are taught at Dunning Kruger University of Self Awareness.

  115. It’s past easter, mare can use swear words again!

  116. I know he had face cancer or something but that guy always struck me as almost see through.

    When he’d stand next to Obama it was like looking at opposites.

  118. Chuck Norris wishes he was an AR-15.

  119. Cowboys driving cattle across the prairie were overwhelmingly gender non-conforming.

    -facts I just made up.

  120. Heh.

    Oh no! How do I delete this. If my AR finds this in my browser history it’ll wipe out my family.

  121. By far, my favorite “fun fact” from J’Ames link is:
    There was an assault musket similar to the AR-15 used by the world’s most evil pirates, but it was pronounced “Arrr-15.”

  122. Grrrrrrr, just had to cancel a credit card. Somebody has been having fun for the last few days.

  123. Saw about 20 seconds of an “intellectual” on some news program who was saying that in urban environments people evolve much faster.

    Right. That must explain the flight out of those shitholes by anyone with an ounce of sense. It’s what happened to St. Louis…run by democrats, right into the ground. They’re so corrupt and broke, they’re pushing hard to incorporate the county for their money to spend..on themselves and their stupid projects.

  124. Oh and Eff facebook and all who support it.

    Some of us have accounts on mewe dot com.

  125. How much are you on the hook for, Pepe?

  126. America, minus about 10K “academics” would be a much better place. (and the ones Im talking about are the leftists that have taken over our universities.)

  127. Somehow, my identity was stolen a year or so ago.
    It was a syndicate out of FL that did it it huge volumes. FBI told me that there was nothing I could do but report it to the big 3 credit agencies, but they were tracking them (yeah, right).

    Just be prepared to put a seven year hold on any new credit apps with the big 3, and jump through hoops to buy a house, car, or get a new line of credit during that 7 years.

    I never suffered a financial loss (they just opened new accounts using my name, SSN & something close enough to my birth date before it was caught by Citi).

  128. Boo, Jay.

    boo

  129. My work here is done.

  130. Where is leon? He’s an idiot that read the 4th turning, right?

  131. I read a very short summary and nodded. I haven’t read the book itself yet.

  132. I don’t think we’re on the hook for anything, Leon.

    Penelope went through the last few charges with them. 2 tickets on Jet Blue, 2 purchases at DSW (shoes), and one money order at Western Union. You’d think the plane tickets would be an issue, but the money order triggered the account.

  133. When Ohtani pitches, does he bat?

  134. No, J’Ames. They have him DH on the days when he’s not pitching. I could be mistaken, but I think the team has to use the DH for a starting pitcher in the AL.

  135. I was wondering about that. In HS, the DH wasn’t the pitcher, usually.

  136. accounts on mewe dot com.
    ——-
    I first read about that last week. The “we don’t sell your data social network”. I’ll wait.

  137. Come on, I think it’s spelled meow.com

  138. Any of you know WTF is going on?

  139. Just looked it up. According to Wiki, the DH is optional, but if a team doesn’t use one at the beginning of the game, the pitcher or a pinch hitter has to bat each time. So, you have to figure that in this age of pitch counts and ready use of relievers, they just put someone in that slot whether the pitcher swings a decent bat or not.

  140. I see the last pitcher who batted was Madison Bumgarner for the Giants in the WS.

  141. Dear Lord, is that a roadrunner?

  142. It’s in love with Massachusetts.

  150. Pup, I swear – I thought “your Mom” was going going to be the punchline. You disappoint me, sir.

  151. no crutch, scott?

  152. I crutched, but it didn’t seem to help much.

    After cranking up the heat I got it close to 200 and pulled it. I’ll give it an hour or so in a cooler before I hit the hay.

    88 cents a pound seemed like a bargain.

  153. No, you misunderstand, Mare has a recipe she swears by, fast and easy.

  154. “Mare has a recipe she swears by, fast and easy.”

    hahahaa –
    i’m not sure what’s funnier, bustin’ on that whore mare or fuckin’ with the new guy

  155. Roadrunners are unpopular with Penelope because they really hammer the baby quail.

    Ranch kid theater:

    Teacher: Shows pic of roadrunner. Anybody know what this is?

    Kid: Mexican pheasant.

    Teach: It’s actually a roadrunner.

    Kid: Nope, Mexican pheasant. My dad shot one yesterday……..

    Teacher: 😕😯😯

  156. I don’t know about the DH, but pretty sure your mom is the designated catcher.

  158. Fuckin’ with the new guy is always fun.
    Hey – remind me. Who’s the new guy?

  159. Now, Cupid, if your arrow make her love strong for me
    I promise I will love her until eternity
    I know between the two of us her derp we can steal
    Help me if you will
