Christmas List Time

Even adults need to shake off the cobwebs and submit their list to Santa. Those little elves need a lot of lead time to mine the rare earth metals needed for your assorted electronic gewgaws. You don’t want to be the dunce who ends up with coal in your stockings.

  5. j’bros stockings link must have made santas naughty list

  6. Still a hottie

  7. She needs a spanking. Probably, not sure exactly what she did, just on general principles.

  8. Stocking girl, not Linda Carter. Wonder Woman is an Amazonian warrior with a truth lasso and an invisible jet plane so she gets the door opened for her.

  9. Daddy Saddle: Now With Special Daddy’s Fingers Attachment!

  10. Somebody gave my grandmother one of those horrible screaming monkey things.

  11. wakey wakey

  12. Huh, I didn’t realize they screamed too!


  13. Somebody gave my grandmother one of those horrible screaming monkey things.

    I’m not sure I’d have shared that shit.

  14. “horrible screaming monkey
    that’s singing btw
    & need it be said…????
    your grandma liked it

  16. Fitting on the cold water tap for double-filtered water under the kitchen sink failed last night, and we had a big puddle in the kitchen and another in the basement before we caught it. Plumber’s here now. Showed up 20 minutes after I called.

  17. Somebody gave my grandmother one of those horrible screaming monkey things.

    Worst mom joke ever.

  18. Fixed. That particular water line had no shut off in the basement, I had to shut off water to the house to get it to stop.

  19. It says something I wanted to shoot that damned monkey the moment I saw it. Reflex…

  20. I always shoot/stab them in Fallout 4.

  21. Stupid things are always trouble. Headshooting them from across the room is just so satisfying.

  22. “I always shoot/stab them in Fallout 4.”

    You have the DLC’s also? I was looking forward to Fallout 76 but the reviews are leaving me ambiguous at best. I have Red Dead and its stoopid big, but it not my style of game play. The whole “your a outlaw robbing your way across the west” just doesn’t work for me. It appears FO76 lacks a well defined story mode for single player so now Im just beginning to eyeball the latest Battlefield, But we’ll see as I kinda got burnout on BF. Witcher 3 is alot of fun also if you’re into Skyrim kinda play.

  23. I’ve been so busy the last few days I’m having trouble motivating.

  24. Daddy’s saddle is insane. I love it.

  25. I didn’t get the DLCs for it, none of them interested me. FO 76 looks like a dumpster fire, so I gave it a hard pass.

  26. You ever try ARC? I enjoyed that for a bit

  27. I’ve been playing FO76. I WAS enjoying it, but between the idiot games played by Bethesda and their inability to fix broken things and NOT make enjoyable things suck, that’s quickly waning. A shame, a lot of it was right up my alley.

    ARK sucks solo and I never found a server where the people weren’t assholes, and not the good kind like we have here, either.

  28. I think the gaming industry is a bit conflicted right now. They dont seem to understand that the online every man for himself routine gets old. Most of the time, I prefer single player play. I also think they reach a point where the “management” required to play any given game (too many variables to easily control) will exceed the play factor. For me games are a escape, and while I dont mind having to think and manage a few things, the multi tree multi control schemes just get too much and eliminate the fun factor. I enjoyed the hell out of ARK solo. I was slow paced but fun.

  29. I tried to like ARK solo, but got wrecked by big carnivores on spawn–on spawn too many times. Often chaining one after another! Otherwise I found it intriguing. Probably why I liked FO76, base building, exploring, survival, and action in a good mix. (I hate Fortnight. Utterly. Loathe. It.)

    I agree, companies aren’t in the same place as the players. At best it’s a vision mismatch, at worse it’s just exploitative money-grubbing.

  30. How did the farmer find his wife?

  31. Anyone have any idea what the fook is going on with the stock market?

  32. I think the gaming industry is a bit conflicted right now. They dont seem to understand that the online every man for himself routine gets old. Most of the time, I prefer single player play. I also think they reach a point where the “management” required to play any given game (too many variables to easily control) will exceed the play factor.

    I prefer single player games because I want to experience a story. You don’t get that as much with multiplayer games. I suspect that the industry prefers multiplayer because they think it will keep gamers playing longer, and they can make money through DLC and microtransactions.

    In many ways, it is.

  35. Truly. And yet I get “are you insane?” looks when I talk about liquidating my 401k gambles at a high point, paying the penalty, and wiping out all of my real estate debt, and using the remainder to start farming.

  36. That is probably less about market risk, and more about your desire to retreat from the (utterly corrupt) world and be a happy hermit.

  37. Careful when you cook with mom!

  38. We had a clappping monkey when. I waz a kid. It wasn’t mine, but Dads. It sat on his bar.
    If I were to wish for a childhood Christmas Gift right now? It would be Jarts. Seconxq place is those rockets that were water and air powered that you pumped up until they launched.

  39. Secretion Santa gift status: Mailed

  40. #1 son: Do you have investments in bonds?
    Me: Nope, interest rates are way too low. I put it into equipment. Would you rather have the backhoe we just bought? or $35 K in 20 years?

    Backhoe has saved thousands of $ this year. Probably $1,200 in the last few weeks.

  41. What is with dogs and their peculiarities?
    Every time I sneeze, he runs outside. He could be fast asleep at 2 AM, but he’s sure to go running out the doggie door. Just happened now – he was sleeping under a blanket at my feet, but he went chasing dragons after I sneezed…

  42. Guys, the ONLY game worth playing is World of Warships.

  43. Does it have power armor?

  44. The only games I play are Japanese love simulations.

    With power armor.

  45. So my daughter came home with a cold from that petri dish of ebolas she works in, about a week and a half ago. While she feels better, she’s begun hacking like hillary on the campaign trail.

    Guess who has been having the crazy munchies* for the past week, woke up coughing last night, and has a scratchy throat down low? FACKKK!!!

    *shakes fist at daughter

    I can’t get sick…there’s too much to do!

    *I always get the munchies before I come down with some crap.

  46. My MIL told me that this past Monday, she had her little book of prayers out to say her prayers per usual and flipped a few pages to a little prayer for the deceased and prayed for her parents, siblings, and Pops. As soon as she finished, the television made a loud crackling, fuzzy noise, turned on for a few seconds and then turned off. She sat there stunned…’will it turn off by itself, too?’…but peaceful. It didn’t frighten her like everything else usually does.

    We’re thinking Pops came to say hello and that he appreciated the prayers. Pops loved him some teevee. If one was on, you had to turn it off to get his attention.

  47. Oh, and I HAVE BEEN VINDICATED!!

    Mr. B. has been pissy for the past couple of weeks due to my insistence at hiring an electrician for ‘the house’. So much so, that I thought about hiring Humpy’s monkeys to come teach him a lesson.

    Well, the electrician has begun work today and husband calls me saying, ‘You were right. I’m glad we hired out for this. They are laying so much wire and this and that I never would have thought of, there is no way I could have done it……….BUT I COULD HAVE STILL DONE THE PLUMBING…I’m good at digging holes.’ (me – and good at digging into live wires – yes he did – and possibly the wrong pipe..)

  48. Munchies before getting a cold … maybe the body seeking nutrition before the big battle?

    Took me a while to figure out but now I realize if my gums are sore for unknown reasons, no vigorous brushing or flossing, there’s a cold coming down the line.

  49. Maybe beasn got into some CBD oil, and has the actual munchies.

  50. Laura and Paula need shirts!

  51. Stock market sees the Fed raising rates and the incoming Dems and figure, “party’s over”. Or so I suspect. Hells, I’m no pro, I make half what I say up as I go along, God help you if you take my advice on such things.

  52. I’d be your electrician any day of the week. But I hate plumbing with a passion (who would dig a hole by choice?). Thats just punishment. I can do it and do on occasion. but I avoid plumbing work like the plague.
    If you can afford it, hire that shit out!

  53. Took me a while to figure out but now I realize if my gums are sore for unknown reasons, no vigorous brushing or flossing, there’s a cold coming down the line.

    I get the same thing.

  54. Remember that the vast majority of investors are panicky or are short-term speculators who don’t know shit. Right now the markets are spooked by a number of things, including US-China relations, the incoming Dem majority in the House, and the shit going on in Europe, not to mention the Fed decision to raise rates (although I would guess that one wasn’t unexpected).

  55. I’m reading a WSJ article on the gang violence in El Salvador. Horrific. Democracy has failed, and the most humane thing to do would be to impose a king who would round up all the young men over 14 and execute any found with gang tattoos.

  56. Munchies before getting a cold … maybe the body seeking nutrition before the big battle?

    Most likely.
    Or I’ll get depressed — probably the virus taking hold and my body is
    like ‘…woe….’.

    “Took me a while to figure out but now I realize if my gums are sore for unknown reasons,”

    My husband will get cold sores, prior. Every once in a while, when I have a headcold coming on, my lips will burn like they’re chapped.

    Listen to your meatsacks people.

    I’m pushing the fluids and eating some Cuties (SYWM).

  57. I used to listen to my meat sack……. got in a lot of trouble…..

  58. *eyeballs bag of kettle corn*

  59. “I used to listen to my meat sack”

    *pictures TT’s head down close to his meat sack, listening*

    Gross.

  60. The best story you will read all day.

    I’m still giggling like a fat kid at the candy factory.

  61. Meat Sack Whisperer

    Or is that Lisperer?

  62. Nice nurse shirt I can’t imagine her wearing it to work or the gym so I’ll just send her the photo and get a chuckle out of it.

  63. “Or is that Lisperer?”

    Heh. Yeth.

  64. Pepe has a great bunch of potential prizes at the annual fundraiser this year Last chance to enter/donate is this Sunday.

  65. RIP Pete Shelley

  66. Redskins QB, Alex Smith, broke his leg on Nov 18 and he’s still in the hospital.. Not good.

    I guess he had multiple surgeries and infection moved in.

  67. Heart attack at 63?

    Cocaine.

    Everyone I know that did cocaine in the 80’s has had open heart surgery.

    These are people in their 50’s.

  68. Yeah, Alex Smith with the infection. That sucks for him. The tibial nail is reamed the length of the bone and if it’s infected that means the whole surgical site, from just below the knee at the entry point to just above the ankle and even the fracture site, is infected.

  69. Some are saying this could make it career ending.

    Could it come down to amputation?

  70. I watched the slow motion video of the leg breaking.

    I think I hurled a little bit.

  71. I am looking forward to the sous vide brisket report.

  72. Amputation is always an option. Very unlikely here though in a healthy host. Infections on metal are hard to eradicate. Bacteria can form a biofilm (“Slime layer”) that prevents the antibiotic from killing the bacteria. They’re probably doing repeated washouts, maybe swapping the nail out trying to get ahead of it. If they can suppress it until the fracture heals the rod can be removed and the bacteria eradicated. If they had to they could take the rod out and put an external fixator on but fracture healing takes forever with them. Career ending injury most likely.

    Once a month we have a Quality Review meeting where we discuss cases that went tits up. Most of them are not unusual, elderly people with hip fractures dying within 24 hours of surgery. Every once in a while there’s a case in a relatively young person (definition of “young” changes each year as I age) where every single possible complication that could happen happens and after months of care they end up doing an amputation.

    As a resident I took care of a WW2 vet with a draining sinus in his thigh from his femur. He got shot with a Japanese bullet on some Pacific island and, after a delay in treatment and 1940’s antibiotics, spent months in traction to get it to heal. The jungle rot osteomyelitis was never completely eradicated and it drained every now and then over his life, more often as he got older.

  74. I hate seeing injuries. I remember the Theisman injury. It took a long time for them to get him off the field. They replayed it over and over again. Snap, snap.

  75. Thanks, Jimbro. All the money donated will really make a difference here. Penelope just read a notice the school principal posted on the local bulletin board. She’s asking for people to donate clothing for a girl who only has one set of clothes.

  76. Everyone I know that did cocaine in the 80’s has had open heart surgery.

    These are people in their 50’s.

    Didn’t obama do cocaine in the 80s?

  77. I have decided to smoke the brisket tomorrow. Since I have the day off.

  78. Beasn, tomorrow is Day 14 of my cold. Day 7 for Dan. He has a Man Cold, though. (Waves at Sean)

  79. *sprays H2 with digital Lysol

  80. “Smoke the brisket”. Not a euphemism.

  81. I still haven’t figured out why MaryAnn is my avatar. She’s so pretty. 15 yo

  82. Debbie envied Raquel’s poise.

  83. I attended school on Taiwan with lots of CIA kids. They are privately sharing lots of 41 stories. One of my friends is Korean by birth, adopted by CIA father. 41 would always visit his dad in FL. Friends for years. I made a white privileged joke on my RL friend’s post, and I’m getting attacked by 2nd Gen hippie/losers. CIA kids from the 60/70 era are a bunch of left wing losers. Fathered by heroes.

  84. I’ve become old. All I want for Christmas is some good quality socks. Maybe a nice sweater for the dog. Get off my lawn!
