Miscellaneous Memorial Monday

Leon is busy so I figured I’d throw up something to make up for forgetting to come up with a poat last Monday. Links will be light, because WordPress is a fucking disaster and keeps crashing on me every two minutes. Obviously, this will be a solemn affair, in light of the passing of Car in due to her disastrous decision to run the Ragnar. The initial autopsy suggests that she overdosed on Tool‘s latest album somewhere around mile 28. In lieu of flowers, her family is asking for donations to the Foundation to Force Feed Taylor Swift a Fucking Sandwich.

First, some traditional MMM fare. It’s always good to start a workout with some bodyweight exercises as a warm-up.

Our parents bought the World Book Encyclopedia and we actually used it since going to the library was a pain in the ass when you didn’t have a car. Or driver’s license for that matter. This quote always puzzled me as a kid

Crazy Money

So one of our fellow Hostages hit it big in the lottery. Yes, Troy won big. So did Uncle Sam who appreciates all the tax money to feed the machine. Always fun to imagine what you would do if you won the lottery. For me, part of the enjoyment of buying a lottery ticket, is daydreaming about what you’d do with all that money. Everyone says they will not change but secretly know they will. Here’s a few ideas of what to do with all that mad money.

Ode To The Ham Sandwich

As we have often heard and most people know (mainly from the TV genre known as “police procedurals“), a grand jury will indict a ham sandwich. Fewer people know WTH a grand jury is much less what indict means. Where we all can find common ground is in the ham sandwich. Let’s meet the players

Just Pecking Away

So one might think that a “Pecking Away” post might be about the latest currency of exchange for a maudlin teen child being bartered to a man for chickens, but one would be wrong.

Alas another important study has shown a disturbing trend  in the course of events for the American male.
