MMM 368

And another fine week begins in the greatest country on Earth, even if it’s only by virtue of being the least bad.

Those shoes don’t look very sensible.

  1. Sharing has been turned off for this post because that shit’s for commies.

  3. That last gal has a nice, sensible body. Lean, some arm definition and still has enough (not a lot) of body fat to make her interesting and desirable. *cough* If I was a guy.

  4. This absolute idiot needs to STFU.

  5. Too many people around to inspect the muscle definition.

    And by “muscle” I mean gentleman’s sausage.

  6. Heh, New Yorker can’t find almond milk in Iowa

    A bodega is like a gas station without the gas. So everyone in NYC shops at a convenience store? No wonder no one has any money there.

    Replying to @SallyGold
    We have a lot in common with NYC. For example, we’re often stuck in traffic behind a $120K vehicle. Come back here to any county road or highway and we’ll prove it! #JohnDeere

  8. BonkPolitics Retweeted Sally Goldenberg
    This Tweet is quintessential proof of the need for the Electoral College and not allowing annoying urbanites to make all decisions for the entire country.

    PS: I lived my first 44 years in NYC.

  9. Whenever New York journalists go into the South or Midwest, they write after campaign books about it like they were Lewis and Clark.

    This tweet is gold. Thanks Iowahawk!

  10. This absolute idiot needs to STFU.

    I just read the book that both he and BXVI suggested as a cautionary tale: “Lord of the World”. Suggesting global governance on anything after reading that suggests he’s either an imbecile or an actual agent of Satan.

  11. That whole thread of Iowahawk is funny.

    That gal is an embarrassing dolt.

  12. Of course it’s entirely possible he never really read it, just recommended it.

  13. I know a couple of electricians who live in New York. They say you have to make at least $125K per year to live decently there.

  14. The Daily Ocasio

    The pope might get it, too.

  15. I do recommend the book, though you may want a Latin translation page open for chunks of it. As a Novus Ordo Catholic I was stuck falling back on Spanish a lot, and what little Latin I’ve managed to pick up on my own.

  16. Politico Reporter Takes Shots at Iowa, SoundOff Answers

    Watch the video of the guy trying almond milk for the first time!

  17. You’re reading spanish translations of Latin books? Way too far over my head!

  18. Her name is Anna.

    What is the zip code for her ass?

  19. Jay, linguistically, English is what happens when German runs into Latin and has a brutal, angry fistfight. Modern Spanish is what happens when you have to teach Latin to people with an 80 IQ and accommodate a giant new slate of words for things that didn’t exist in the time of Justinian.

  20. Sally Goldenberg LOL JAP

  21. Spanish Spanish is what happens when a well-liked printhess has a horrible lithp after the colonial period has ended and everyone left in the motherland affects her thpeech impediment.

  22. Yeah, I know I know, Germanic languages blah blah blah.

  23. Heh, nice one on the speech impediment.

  24. Where’s Car in? Sleeping off the Tool concert?

  25. Heh, Snapchat is good for one thing

  26. Heh, nice one on the speech impediment.

    Something similar happened to British English with the rhotic “r” between American and Australian colonization. Dropping Rs became a way to signal class and love of Kingdom to distinguish oneself from Americans.

  27. Jay, GOT ended last night. She’s prolly still mad.

  28. BTW, John Wick 3, meh.

  29. Ok, I have no idea what Tool is. What songs should I start with?

    I asked this weekend, describe Tool. Everyone said best band ever. Better than Pink Floyd, better than Foo Fighters. I’m skeptical.

  30. Eh, Tool is no Nickelback.

  31. Being better than Pink Floyd is not a high bar.

  32. Tool is for tools.

  33. I liked Pink Floyd but Roger Waters kinda blew that. On the other hand, we still have Alan Parsons Project.

  34. I don’t like druggie music. Like that garbage from The Grateful Dead.
    I know there are people who use to follow that band around to all of their “concerts” and I don’t get that AT ALL.

  35. It’s not like there is new Pink Floyd. Their stuff came out before Waters became politically active. Alan Parsons is one of the reasons for their success, true. A recording genius.

  36. Fuck all that druggie music. If I wanted to listen to crap, I’d go sit over a bowl of water.

  37. Haha, looking up Alan Parsons, and there is a rumor that This Song (Need You Now, Lady Antebellum) is a ripoff of this song (Eye in the Sky). I don’t hear it.

    Mashup

    Still don’t hear it

  38. Heh, like my dad, HS. Go turn up Mantovani, or whatever is on the reel to reel.

  39. Isn’t Amash one of those libertarian republicans?

  40. Almost twenty hours travelling and I got off the plane and went straight into work. My life is awesome.

  41. I’m back. Whirlwind tour

    wakey wakey

    what do you guys think of this for a name: Edie.

    They did not perform it last night, but they sounded great.

    Mare loves Hotspur. Additionally, I would like to subscribe to your newsletter.

  43. The NY reporter is a dolt. When we visited my niece, while she attended a college out in sticksville, the stores carried almond milk. Wtf?

  44. And guess what, when I would travel some long trip, I’d bring my own rice milk in a cooler. Not Iowa’s fault this dumbass didn’t travel via a rented vehicle from NY.

  45. Top one is a Playboy bunny pose, no?

  46. Cake season is not for the weak. Our GM doesn’t allow us to stop taking orders. He doesn’t ok OT.

    Many times we were told that we could not refuse an order. The same number of times we ignored the dumbass telling us that. Had we not been expected to also answer phones and wait on most customers at the counter, we would have considered it.
    Graduation season was brutal. Overtime was approved.

    When my one abusive department manager was allowed back into the bakery as a cake decorator, after she was a FAIL in housewares, I was all AH HELL NAW. Did a two-step and got some assistant to okay a schedule change for – family reasons – and got Friday and Saturday off for about a year before I quit. Mostly to reduce the number of days I’d have to work with her….and to let her get a taste of what I had to go through with weekend orders while she was being a complete bitch. That was some sweet payback.

  47. Jay, on GOT, who wound up winning the throne?

  48. When former coworkers ask me to come back to the bakery, I start sweating. I may still have some PTSD from it.

  49. I haven’t watched GoT yet. I’ll probably hope on the bike in a bit and do it? I would wait until after work, but someone will probably spoil it for me. Plus, I may pass out the second I get home. I got up early yesterday, and got 4 hours of sleep last night.

  50. Top one is a Playboy bunny pose, no?

    Could be. What’s Playboy?

  51. Jay, on GOT, who wound up winning the throne?

    Without watching a single minute, I predicted it would be GRRM’s self-insert.

    Wife said I was right.

  52. NEVERMIND, I just read a synopsis of it on CBS site.

  53. Good read, feminist blind squirrels find nuts.

    Plus:

    If abortion is illegal then men abandoning their child should also be illegal. If this was a permanent decision for me then it is for you as a father also.

    Deal.


  54. Jay, on GOT, who wound up winning the throne?

    It’s not like any of us will ever see it.

  55. Oh, and you don’t get to call “getting thrown out of the house he paid for by a woman who decided to destroy her family to cure her unhaaaaaaaapiness” “abandoning a child”, either.

  56. Here’s an idea, either don’t put out until he marries you – there is a reason for certain ‘traditions’ of expected human behavior, or double duty the birth control after learning how your body, which sends signals of fertility, works.

  57. It’s not like any of us will ever see it.

    GRRM is a crappy writer. Without watching or even reading the plots I knew he had a self-insert. Wife said I should have bet my guess in Vegas because I could have done quite well.

  58. Yeah, and family court needs a huge revamping.

  59. The motherfucker couldn’t even adopt a set of original middle initials. The whole thing was self indulgent narcissistic gratuitous nudity and violence.

    HBO is a fucking cesspool.

  60. Exactly. Martin’s most obvious public sin is his unrepentant envy of Tolkien, whose shoes he remains unworthy to shine.

  61. Playboy has great articles, so I’m told. Haven’t even seen one in decades.

  62. One day I’ll binge GoT. I never watched Breaking Bad, then binge watched it for like three weeks straight. That’s the only way to go.

  63. A lot of the elements of this season weren’t bad, they were just assembled so sloppily by the writers that it was insulting. The show needed two more episodes to give it better pacing and build up some of the ideas. Instead they rushed through to try and finish it so that the producers can move on to killing Space Fags with Power Swords, I mean Star Wars.

  64. I prefer Space Fascists with Power Swords, aka Warhammer 40k.

  65. Here’s an idea, either don’t put out until he marries you – there is a reason for certain ‘traditions’ of expected human behavior, or double duty the birth control after learning how your body, which sends signals of fertility, works.

    Most of them have no clue about their bodies.

    I saw a Buzzfeed video (I know, I KNOW!) a while back where a couple of lefty girls went off birth control for six months. It was sort of darkly hilarious that they had basically delayed puberty for over a decade each.

  66. Somebody knee this cumdumpster in the nads.

  67. Put Tim Cook, pope Francis, Barack Obama, Cankles, the entire democrat primary field, Mitt Romney, and Oprah in a room. Block the exits and set it on fire.

    Good start.

  68. Put a red bandana and a calico dress on this wagon, and you have Aunt Jemima 2019.

  69. I enjoy pancakes

  70. Planted the front flower bed. Phew. Too hot out there for a body still used to 40-degree nights.

    Nice.

  76. Can’t remember which day this weekend I opened Fox news website and saw that Tim Cook headline along with Justin Amash calling for impeachment, but I got so disgusted that I literally said, “ugh!” I rarely even check Drudge anymore.

  77. and of course now the site is down, haha

  78. HEY JAYINAMES

    Do you want to do Tuesdays for a while?

  79. ok

  80. Thanks.

    Pretty sure JAM2 is going to run out of lottery money soon.

  81. So don’t everybody freak out, but wordpress changed the mysites dashboard again, but the WP ADMIN button is still there at the bottom left to use the classic editor.

    *share this*

  82. PIGGEH! Thanks Pepe, I may have to use that some time.

  83. Anyone check on Jam? Do we need to raise bail money?

  84. Look, if Jam wants to take some time to test drive hookers and dabble in meth who are we to make him feel bad about not posting?

  85. Hearing about what a POS the last season of GoT is, feels like $15 sliding back into my pocket. Glad I never bothered to get HBO. Buncha commies anyway.

  86. 7:12AM, a totally awesome sight to behold. Just you wait.

  87. 37 degrees, 20 mph wind, and snowing lightly.

  88. I’m giving a research presentation at work tomorrow morning. I don’t know if my boss will be there . A big part of the presentation is about how we have been doing a (minor) procedure wrong for years and years. This should be fun.

    I expect zero institutional change to occur as a result of this research.

  89. My wife liked the last season, Laura. She thought it was actually fairly predictable if depressing.

  90. All in all, it’s pretty good TV. Last season wasn’t as good as the others, but still had it’s moments. The war climax was pretty well done.

  91. The ending wasn’t as bad as people said. I really enjoyed the series, would watch it again. The end was … perhaps a tad predictable, but it was pretty according to character. There is no shark jumping moments- and perhaps people like that. People don’t LIKE what happened with some characters, and that falls under the “tough titties” category.

  92. Case of overpowering vocals, Jennifer Nettles vs. Taylor Swift: Babe

    Jennifer wins, but Taylor surprised me.

  93. They spent time building up things they never made use of

    Arya as assassin
    Sandor’s relationship with her
    How stupid Jon Snow is
    How nobly selfish Sansa is

  94. Plus, the music was top of the scales.

  95. Well, yea, but how many things did he develop in the book and then abandon. A shit tonne.

    Arya does kill people. She didn’t kill someone you or I wanted her to kill.

    I dunno. They left a lot of room for a spinoff.

  96. Her whole “no face” training? She could have been anybody. How do you not use that?

  97. Because she didn’t have to.

  98. Crap. We all know I have no linkfu. Reading comments on a tweet about Skinny Privilege and the point that the first Moron commented. Moron comment showed up on my Twitter feed. I went to the thread and multiple Morons started chiming in. Epic. If you haven’t watched Endgame, this thread has spoilers. Beasn, I Planned on working Bakery again tonight. Got pulled to work on a special project. 81+ orders on a Monday. Bakery lead was ready to walk yesterday after hearing the verbal abuse I was getting from Members. She and FullTime decorators have been approved for OT.

  99. Good news, bad news day. Bad news was one of Rocketboy’s friends was killed in a car accident in MO yesterday. He was 21. Wear your seatbelt, people.

    Good news is that Mini-me was awarded the Stars and Stripes, so all her hard work did pay off! I get to plan a party!

  100. So very sorry, Roamie. Eggcited for the MiniMe

  101. Defectors evaded Romanian police.

  102. I get to plan a party

    Don’t forget to order a cake from Sam’s club!

  103. Huzzah for Mini-Me!!

  104. I don’t understand. Every graduation season Sam’s Club/Walmart gets swamped with cake orders, a completely predictable situation. In order to decorate them satisfactorily and get them done in time 2 approaches make sense; 1) Know, via past years based on the employees available, how many cakes can be decorated before shit happens and stop taking orders when that number is reached. Or 2) have more than the usual number of decorators on hand for the amount of time necessary to get the job done. Why are the geniuses at product distribution be morons when it comes to time management?

  105. Congrats to Mini-you! Sad news about your son’s friend, having kids is scary.

  106. 30 degrees again this morning.

  107. *hires Mare for Secretary Of Pastry in my cabinet*

    3) Misspell the person’s name.
    4) Draw a giant penis on it.

  111. Mare, other Clubs limit orders. That isn’t policy. Policy isn’t even 24 hour notice. Our current GM is a douche. Previously, Bakery Lead would submit a plan and GM would okay. 2 decorators overnight. One sales floor associate to distribute. 4 decorators during the day. OT. It has been torturous working for the DB. He doesn’t give any support and he makes us take orders. (We lie and tell people a really late time to discourage last minute orders. New trick, other market managers call in last minute orders that are off book, to see if bakery is still filling orders. We are only supposed to use images as pictured in Cake Book)

  112. HS, we have to keep a copy of the order form as filled out, just in case of contention. One of the reasons why I H8 cake fail sites. Not the decorators job to provide translation, spelling, or grammar.
