Which is it?

Would you call this a gift for geek-dom world wide?
Would you make this akin to the Gods blessing us with ambrosia?
Icarus flying too close to the Sun?

Wonder if this is what Prometheous felt like?

Civic Duty

Yeah, it might not sit so well with the Mrs., but....this comes via my crush.

Goodbye Attention Whore

That sums it up, doesn't it?

Hey, her words, not mine.
BTW....since all she does is yap, anyway, what the hell is she "retiring" from?
Blessing all of us peons with her deep, deep wisdom?
Shut the hell up. Oh, that's right...you finally are.

Some people...

Just like to overthink things and are too self-important to bother seeing the forest.

But then again, it is easier to claim a disability when you suffer from Derangement.

G'head...Waste Some Time

Guess the Movie Quote

This one I'm sure will be a piece of cake for all you Googlers out there.
[ "This contempt for money is just another trick of the rich to keep the poor without" ]

Yeah, I know its a cop out.

You've GOT to be kidding me.

Good God.
I'm just sayin'....wasn't this one of the the plagues of Egypt?

Did they really give it a horror movie name??
Did they say billions??!!
Holy shiitake mushrooms, Batman!!

No, there is no end.

RDW has yet another story revolving around the waste surrounding RUSD. To wit, the disgusting brazenness of Supernintendo Hicks to take advantage...FULL advantage of the re-imbursement policy.
A small sample:

[ "Greystone San Diego - $130.14 ($75 for the Mrs)
Commander's Palace - $160.65 ($81.00 for the Mrs)
The Waves - $133.56.
Figs Cucina - San Diego - $100.25
Ray's in the City -
Atlanta - $276.79
Mia Bella Bistro - Lake Geneva - $155.31
The Red Snapper- Atlanta - $196.45
Houlihan's - $62.44
Bentley's - $98.76
" ]

What a ridiculous commentary on the privileges that elected official feel they have.
And then to whine and cry that its "for the children." Give it a rest.

People that do not realize that this kind of garbage is happening in all aspects of government are kidding themselves. Why do you think one of the things accountants ask you to do to minimize your taxes is to start a "side" business so you can deduct certain costs that you normally wouldn't? The sick thing here is, he is on other people's dimes anyway!
I would also, further have to ask how much crap he also deducts on his taxes as "business expenses."

Yeah, so basically the guy that changed.....wait, thats not right...

So basically, the guy that is friggin' responsible for that rock n' roll sound, Les Paul, finally gets a day in his name, where he grew up.
So what does the moron, idiot photo editor at the Urinal-sentinal do?
Publish the only, apparently, picture that was taken at the event....signing a damn drum!

[Pioneering musician Paul gets welcome fit for a guitar
The Wizard of Waukesha has returned to his realm. It's been nearly 20 years since Les Paul performed in the city where he was born and raised and started out in show business as a flame-haired teenager calling himself Red Hot Red. But at last, he's back - and ready to plug in. Tonight, the man who was a pioneer in the
development of the electric guitar will perform at the Marriott Milwaukee West hotel.
What an embarrassment ...
The rest.

Good thing you got out, Mr. Paul.
And thanks for everything.
Sorry for the morons running our paper.

Guess the Movie Quote

Any other day, this is movie quote is impossible.....

[ "I am the walrus. God is just the middle man." ]
But today is no other day.
Its a beautiful day*.

*Bono's birthday, anyway..

No, Really....

I totally love her.

Or maybe its a "crush" as Phel says...either way...

08 maggio 2007

So its MORE than that??

How many different ways do you think will be found to f'c this up?
I think this says it all:
[ "Take your thoughts off that gas-guzzling SUV for a moment and
consider this: The average U.S. home causes twice as much greenhouse emissions as a single car.
" ]

To paraphrase one of my favorite movies: Always, there's the money.

This just in.

[ "A backpack exploded in a parking garage attached to a Las Vegas hotel early Monday, killing a man who had picked it up and injuring another person, authorities said. The man had removed the backpack from atop his car when it exploded shortly after 4 a.m. on the second floor of a parking behind the Luxor hotel-casino, said Officer Bill Cassell, a police spokesman.
The second person was taken to an area hospital.
Aerial video showed no apparent damage to the parking structure, where entrances were blocked while police, firefighters and federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents investigated. No further information was immediately available."

More to follow.

I've always said the if terrorists really wanted to be anti-west, they'd go after Vegas.
Methinks this might not end the same way as other stories might.

***UPDATE: Mea Culpa. Just anxious to see what would happen if...

Guess Everyone Has a Price.

Sure, this joke is older than dirt, but it cracks me up every time...

Yeah, yeah...oink.
Oink. Oink.

Imagine That!

Le Francais decided to go with the "conservative" cadidate (i.e. the one that doesn't live in total la-la land) rather than the hyper-liberal one.

I love what Michael Binyon has to say about the direction the country was heading and Chirac's legacy.

Good to know Phel's on board with this.


Just got off the phone with Mathew and he described an episode last nite at Paradise West on HWY 20 (the bowling alley, not Club Optix).
Lets just say it involved gangs, gunshots and general chaos.

They were dismissed by the police at 4 in the morning. Nothing from the vaunted Racine Journal Times, yet. It will be interesting how they tell the story now that I have an eyewitness account of events.

***Update: Gee, one story finally at 5.oo p.m. I guess no one thought to bring a camera.

He describes it as: "The most intense experience of my f***ing life! F***ING CRAZY!!"
If you knew Mathew, you'd fully appreciate the gravity of those words.
Stay tuned.


Think about this...

I'm still waiting for the "Superstretch and Microwoman" movie.

Declare, already!!

H/T First Class Pete.

I'm kind of tired having to say "Giuliani" when someone asks me who I'll be voting for. Feels like I'm settleing.
The only thing that worries me (a great deal) is if he splits the vote.
But, apparently, I'm the only one that thinks that.

I say that because it was really hard work getting my lefty girlfried to say the same thing...now imagine how hard it's going to be to get her to vote for Fred instead!

I knew I could count on her!

Reason #3,087.

All Hoff

Ok, maybe too much of the Hoff.

I think the definitive line out of the whole thing is:
"Alec Balwin is somewhere so happy right now."
That may be, but he'll never be the Hoff.

Bird Feeder

I bought a bird feeder.
I hung it on my back porch and filled it with seed.
Within a week we had hundreds of birds taking advantage of the continuous flow of free and easily accessible food. But then the birds started building nests in the boards of the patio, above the table, and next to the barbecue.
Then came the poop. It was everywhere: on the patio tile, the chairs, the table...everywhere. Then some of the birds turned mean: They would dive bomb me and try to peck me even though I had fed them out of my own pocket. And others birds were boisterous and loud: They sat on the feeder and squawked and screamed at all hours of the day and night and demanded that I fill it when it got low on food.
After a while, I couldn't even sit on my own back porch anymore.

I took down the bird feeder and in three days the birds were gone. I cleaned up their mess and took down the many nests they had built all over the patio. Soon, the back yard was like it used to be...quite, serene and no one demanding their rights to a free meal.
Now lets see...our government gives out free food, subsidized housing, free medical care, free education and allows anyone born here to be a automatic citizen. Then the illegals came by the tens of thousands. Suddenly our taxes went up to pay for free services; small apartments are housing 5 families: you have to wait 6 hours to be seen by an emergency room doctor: you child's 2nd grade class is behind other schools because over half the class doesn't speak English: Corn Flakes now come in a bilingual box; I have to press "one" to hear my bank talk to me in English, and people waving flags other than "Old Glory" are squawking and screaming in the streets, demanding more rights and free liberties.

Maybe it's time for the government to take down the bird feeder.

H/T Morbid Matt

You Say O'Bama...

I say chameleon.

Can anyone tell me the point of this story?

Methinks he is being racist by alluding to the fact that he is a "white" (so white, he's Irish, no less) so it will be easier to garnish the "white" votes.

Guess the Movie Quote

Ok, I searched long and hard to find a quote that can't be directly linked to the movie by that (welcome) spawn of Satan, Google.
This is pretty obscure, so unless you've seen the movie, you may not get it.
[ Character one, offering up a snack: "Pork rind?"
Character 2, nodding understandably: "Pork rind." ]

Oh, yeah! Pretty obscure.

I wasn't even looking that forward to it, but apperently they're serious.

That's what I was always told when I claimed that "Global Warming" is also happening on Mars and further, that their polar ice caps are melting. Time and time again, I was told that my science was outdated and that there wasn't a "concensus" like the warming happening here on Earth.
So is this outdated information?
What about this?
Too outdated?

Gore, still an idiot, has done more to f'c up the the priorities of this planet that anyone else.
Where do you think his priorities really lie?

One Question.

Who dat?
