  2. My View From Orbit

    I've been promising this for some time. Here's the first episode: Obligatory opening rant: You humans really need to address your problem with groupthink. It's one of your least endearing qualities. As a species you are also highly, HIGHLY, suggestible - something I learned (and got to...
  3. The Carol Wright Catalog

    I didn't know they were still in business until one showed up at the house in today's mail. So I flipped through it, seeing the usual and expected housewares, as-seen-on-TV crap, etc., until I got to THIS page: [shocked]

  6. The Stinky Thread

    Every time I stopped on my ride this morning, the bikasaurus stink caught up with me, and that reminded me of this post: I was pretty snarky in my reply, rather than doing what I SHOULD have done, which is to expound on the topic. So, let us explore the stinky things in the SpaceCritter's...

    https://www.ryanhanrahan.com/2018/05/20/may-15-2018-tornadoes-and-damaging-wind/ That morning I rode over in Naugy. Even at sunrise, air you could cut with a knife. But the really weird thing was the army of red efts marching south down the red-blazed trail. I've seen plenty of them over...
  8. Litter: another "Corona virus"

    ...and not just Corona bottles: Bud Light cans, Dunks and *$'s cups, various and sundry nip bottles, and just general trash of every variety.

  10. Perfectly Clean (In Context)

    Given what's happening overseas (and the fact my cousin's son just enlisted), here in the US (e.g. Virginia, but everywhere, really), and some personal stuff (and happenings with a certain organization I'm part of), I'm pretty anxious/depressed. I'm sure I'm not the only one here. Well...

    So... what are y'all training (or have trained)? I'll go first. Hapkido while I was in high school. (I still have the belts and gi somewhere.) In high school (and later college), I tried wrestling (scholastic/freestyle), but generally sucked at it. Many years later (at 31!) I joined Ron...

    Here's their sample ballot from yesterday: https://www.newhavenct.gov/civicax/filebank/blobdload.aspx?blobid=35305 The Republicans ran Alder Board candidates in a handful of wards, and that's all. And the only reason Working Families had a different mayoral candidate from the Donks is they...

    Hayes proposes bill that would pre-empt the arming of teachers You may remember this Hayes: she's the one who ran campaign ads pitching that she was uniquely qualified as a candidate cuz she got knocked up as a teenager. [thinking] Anyway, my comment in the Peanut Gallery should be easy to...
