  1. FIRST!

  2. oy

  3. The guy sucking on the other dude’s foot was horrifying

  4. second.

  5. Stupid refresh.

  6. Leg cramp.


  7. Ben is doing his first solo airplane flight today

    Paula is, understandably, beside herself.


  9. I think we needed to see the 10 seconds before that leg cramp video rolled to gain a more complete understanding of that gentleman’s plight

  10. Boy2, Mrs. Pupster and I have been watching Star Wars the last couple of days. Boy2 had never seen the first three. I didn’t realize how many changes they made from the originals, the added scenes, changes in soundtrack and sound effects. Weird.

    Turns out Luke Skywalker is an annoying, whiny little bitch.

  11. nice categories…
    *hands out benzodiazapine to all*

  12. Ben is doing his first solo airplane flight today

    GOOD LUCK BEN! So cool.

    How’s the weather, Jimbro? *worries a little*

  13. The evolution of the ACD meme is right, in Ollie’s case the 0 to 4 months is more like 0-2 months. And Rowan began to calm down by age 2. “A year under every paw” is supposedly when they were ready to work cattle reliably.

    Lauraw, you said you got bad advice about reining in the biting. I’m curious to know what it was and whether we’re doing it lol.

  14. Turns out Luke Skywalker is an annoying, whiny little bitch

    Much like the personality of the actor. Typecast

  15. KAVU but frigid

  16. My computer just reminded me that tomorrow is the first day of Black history month.

    I haven’t even gone shopping for it yet. THANK god I got reminded.

    (IMGUR VIDEO with sound)

  18. KAVU is an aviation acronym for “clear above visibility unlimited”, when there isn’t a cloud in the sky and you can see to the horizon.


  19. I cooked a box of Zatarain’s Red Beans and Rice last night, bulked it up with some Jimmy Dean sausage, chopped celery, and a can of mushrooms. Added a dash or three of hot sauce and red pepper.

    Thus endeth my Black History Month celebrations.

  20. Good plan Scott.  


  21. I think zatarain should be given a nobel prize. I use a bunch of their stuff. The jambalaya is pretty good for something out of a box

  22. That toe sucking thing is ….. ewwww

  23. Btw it’s almost Groundhog Day.

  24. You hoggers need to make sure to get appropriately dressed up for the festivities.
    No black tho. You raciss mfers.

  25. J’ames excluded of course.

  26. Weather update :
    7 lonely degrees on the back poach this morning.

  27. There was supposed to be a “face “ in that comment.

  28. Feb. 3 is the feast of St. Blaise, and the tradition is to celebrate that on the nearest Sunday with the blessing of throats. The priest or designated volunteer (Mr. RFH has done this) holds two white candles crossed at your throat and prays that you be spared any disease of the throat or choking.

    Last night at Mass, the priest said because of covid, there wouldn’t be any touching, so he held up the candles and recited the blessing over all of us.

  29. Morning everyone.
    *puts on forehead stabber*
    *whistles a jaunty tune*

  30. I also loved the intro to English syllabus. Well done.

    Last night I dreamed that I had just signed up for a new semester at college, and it just dawned on me that this was really expensive and I didn’t have any reason to do it, and I was wondering if I should try to do out and get a refund or else just say screw it and get an undergraduate degree in mathematics.

  31. “Good plan Scott.

    Yeah, but it worked, right?

  32. Agree with Jam about Zatarains. Chop up an extra green pepper, throw in some spicy sausage and some shrimp, it’s Mardi Gras baby.

  33. zatarain should be given a nobel prize.
    I’d pee my pants laughing if they did and they edged out BLM in the process

  34. Zatarains Jambalaya is one of my favorites.

    Pissed off that I didn’t discover it until I was 50.

  35. A little ray of sunshine

  36. What’s going on with silver, people panic-buying that, too?

  37. This is interesting. It’s from last April so I’m wondering if it is still viable.


  38. LOL, Newsom not the only one with a target on his back.

  39. What’s going on with silver, people panic-buying that, too?

    Werewolves are making a comeback.

  40. The library on Ace’s book thread was near my dad’s house in grosse point.

  41. I had friends that lived in some of the mansions on Windmill pointe. I dated a guy who lived in one. He flew me to the Army /Navy game for a date.

  42. How’d you let him get away?

  43. What was the score?

  44. Yannow, I’d really like to see a complete list of business affiliations and jobs the children and close relatives of congress hold. Seems like children and spouses get huge consulting fees from campaign funds. How many no show consulting jobs are there for children of US politicians in the Ukranian oil industry?

    I’m sure if someone could lay it all out, the scope of the corruption would be staggering.

  45. Second base.

  46. Actually, I didn’t even want to really date him. I agreed to go “on a date” with him, but I wasn’t really interested.

  47. Finished day two of Jimbro’s zombie series.

  48. Actually, I didn’t even want to really date him.


  49. He begged me to go on this date with him, and I told him I’d just go as a friend. He was nice, but I just didn’t like him that way. (he was kinda dumb). I was only ever able to date one dumb guy, and this was after him.

  50. Pups, I can’t really tell what I’m looking at in that video. Certainly not someone who knows how to use a machine. Beyond that?

  51. There’s always that one person you dated where you look back and ask yourself, what the hell was I thinking?

  52. No go on Dad’s smoker so far. Popped the breaker twice. Time to re-read the owner’s manual and think a bit.

  53. I might have dated an equal number of dumb broads and brainiacs. Who really knows? The only intelligence test they had to pass was having the right combination and agreeing to go out with me. Make of that what you will (and knowing you guys, you won’t hold back).

  54. The only intelligence test they had to pass was having the right combination and agreeing to go out with me.

    that last condition probably weeded out a lot of the smart ones


  55. weeded out a lot of the smart ones

  56. weeded out a lot of the smart ones

    That was supposed to be a 2 part comment with the second line of

    That’s what I’m saying …

    Distracted by a puppy with a micro bladder

  57. Ben did his solo and survived. He flies out of Bar Harbor Airport and conditions were great except for the wind. Luckily it was blowing in the same direction as the runway. On one of his landings he said just as he pulled the plane up to slow down for the landing a big gust hit the plane and lifted/dropped him in an instant and he had to wonder if the tires were alright with all the weight of the planer slamming down on them. The other factor he had to deal with was the air traffic with a bunch of rich people leaving in private planes for their work week.

  58. Yay for Ben! I wonder if Paula will ever feel comfortable about him flying.

  59. Flight schools are pretty good about not allowing you to solo until ready.
    Even someone out ‘on the spectrum’, like me.
    They really like to be able to use their planes again.
    Hell, they let me do it, and I’ve even got a license…

  60. That urbit dealio looks very interesting.

  61. I don’t think she’ll ever relax with her “baby” flying a plane. The analogy that hits home with me is the old surgeon’s adage “There’s no such thing as routine surgery”. Substitute flight for surgery and there you have it.

    He wants to make a career out of it and we’re looking at all the possible ways to get flight trained and earn a degree. Initially he wanted nothing to do with the military but Paula introduced him to some normal people in the Air Guard who have at least had a few conversations with him. He keeps saying he doesn’t want to go to basic training and I can’t help but laugh when he says it … IT’S THE FRIGGIN’ AIR FORCE, NOT THE MARINES !!!

  62. Other people are calling it a scam. Will wait.

  63. watching a video on Italian street food. Now I want to go to Italy.

    One part has big blobs of cheese hanging over charcoal. As it melts and browns, a guy scrapes off the melty brown part and slathers it on hard sourdough looking bread. OMG it looks so good.

  64. urbit?

  65. oh, that sounds like what Tim Bernards Lee is talking about, hosting your own content.

  66. and the guy making huge crepes with lots of chocolate nutella, mmmm

  67. Weird. If you block out the sound, it could be completely American. Big racks of ribs, burgers, grilled cheese, batter-fried apples, pancakes? Never had that stuff in our Italian home. Never-ever.

  68. Sounds more German than Italian.


  70. Western Michigan has a flight school. It’s a college program.

  71. It’s supposed to be really good

  72. Largest flight school in the Midwest. And it’s 16,000 out of state

  73. But basic would be fun. I wanna go.

  74. But basic would be fun. I wanna go.

  75. 12-18 inches of snow tomorrow.

  76. Friend of mine joined the Army to learn how to fly. Ended up becoming an Apache Longbow flight instructor.

    He retired in his forties.


    I’ll show it to him. If he goes you can rope Paula into your Ragnar stuff

  78. He wants fixed wing. I mentioned helicopters once and he made a face. He’s thinking FedEx,UPS over passengers. Who knows, he’s just 17 and it will change at least a couple of times.

  79. Sweet. This could be perfect

  80. We’re in the 6 to 12 zone for Monday night into Tuesday

  81. He can fly lobsters to places like Vail CO and make a fortune.

    Return with Idaho trout.

  82. NYC supposed to get 18 – 24″. All time record is 27.

  83. We got 8″ last night and this morning. Managed to finish shoveling in time for the next round to start.

  84. Looking for a tracked skid steer (CTL) and came across one in Lapeer.

    Equipment is expensive. 😲😰

  85. Flight related

  86. Friend attended flight school in Natchitoches, LA. True Story, I can’t pronounce LA. Especially Cajun.

  87. He and his sister were Rodeo. Lots of buckles.

  88. I guess I had night terrors last night. Dan says I was screaming “Get off me”. I H8 not knowing what is happening in my life.

  89. According to google, Army flight instructors earn $99,000 per year, and retirement after 25 years pays you 50% of your income. It paid 62% when he retired.

    Not a bad deal at all.

  90. my brother wanted to do that, but had a medical issue on the way to flight school. Had a seizure, same as Dad did when he got back from Vietnam. Ended his flight career.

    Mom had to pin Dad’s tongue, his seizure was bad.

  91. friend of the family is a pilot. He went to school in Florida, I think. He flew for Southwest for a long time, then he went private. Flew private jets, got to go all over the world.

  92. as you might already know, my Uncle was a test pilot for General Dynamics, chief pilot for the F16 (also tested the F111 way back when). About as close to an astronaut as you can get without being one. Knew all the astronauts, flew with Danish royalty while selling the F16, and the Shah of Iran.

    There are plenty of opportunities in military aviation.

  93. Car manufacturers….hahahahaha so true.

  94. Mare! How is rehab?

  95. Embry-Riddle

  96. A lot of folks get the commercial license and then build time by hauling trash flying skydivers…

  97. Jimbro,
    He will need the commercial and instrument rating, and then build hours to get hired by someone like FedEx to fly the Cessna Grand Caravans on the spokes of the FedEx ‘Hub and Spoke’ routes.
    That usually involves working as a flight instructor, for shit wages, or flying jumpers.
    Instrument rating costs money…

  98. Well, as I am on the west coast, it appears that you are all ‘gone to bed’ while I’m still up and drinking.
    So it goes…

  99. “Don’t even!” replied Polly.

  100. Long comment from an email I got from APMEX coming, sorry (I looked for this statement on their home page and couldn’t find it). Since we’ll be ogling ab veins in no time I’ll put it here:

    APMEX Homepage
    To our valued customers,
    APMEX Statement On Current Market Conditions:

    In the last week, we have seen a dramatic shift in Silver demand from our customers. For example, the ratio of ounces sold per day was running about two times earlier in the week and closer to four times the average demand by the end of the week. Once markets closed on Friday, we saw demand hit as much as six times a typical business day and more than 12 times a normal weekend day. Combined with the extremely high demand levels, we are also seeing a surge in new customers. On Saturday alone, we added as many new customers as we usually add in a week.

    Any Precious Metal dealer will take a long position in the futures market to protect against spot price exposure when the markets open. We do this because it is our goal not to take a speculative position on metal. The weekends are unique as we are not able to real-time hedge our position. We took an aggressive position this weekend, but clearly could not have predicted the volumes that were seen. We have partnerships around to world that allowed us to cover these long positions, but only to a point. Once we exceeded our comfort levels, we had little choice but to stop the sale of Silver on our website. This was a difficult decision to make and unprecedented in our history.

    As we evaluate the markets, it is difficult to know where Silver’s price and demand will go in the coming day and weeks. APMEX is highly capitalized and has more than $150 million in inventory to support demand. We have made strategic decisions to procure additional metal, locking up any metal we can find in the market place. We suspect premiums will rise and rise quickly, as we are seeing significant increases in our costs, when we can even locate the metal. It is also highly likely that we will need an additional day or two to fill orders based on current order counts. The one guarantee we can make to our customers is that you will only be sold metal that is on-site, or we have procured the metal with a firm commitment date from our partners. In markets like this, we feel this is the best approach a retailer can take, as no one can predict product availability.

    We want to thank our customers for their patience and understanding during these turbulent times. APMEX prides itself on best in class service and delivering on promises to our customers.

  101. He’s mentioned Embry-Riddle before Chris. I’m not sure what the knock on that school was, maybe tuition expense. His instructor is a young guy earning hours of flight time so he can advance. As far as the expense, he has some concept of it given his desire to work with the Air Guard. He knows Step-Dad Jim’s check book is getting a workout just with the flying so far (and when I say he knows it’s partially because of me and Paula’s reminders).

  102. As far as silver goes, I’m not sure what’s going on and whether this has any similarity to GameStop or not. I knew silver was rising in price per ounce since I usually check the gold and silver price about once a week. There’s physical precious metals and paper PM’s where you buy the promise of an ounce or more of silver. Someone might have had an angle on leveraged paper PM’s and made a move that way. I’m sure we’ll hear more about it as the week moves on.

  103. Happy St. Bridget’s Day

  104. Yep, it’s Reddit, saw an article at Epoch Times about the biggest short squeeze of all time …

  105. I’m conflicted about the news that Amazon workers in Alabama are set to vote on whether to unionize. On the one hand, unions always become Democrat voting blocs and lead to inefficiencies but on the other hand … it’s Amazon. Dilemma

  106. workie workie
