  1. Two guys are talking about Easter. One says, "Easter is Jesus birthday. We put up a tree and put presents around it."
    The other guy says, "No, you're an idiot. You're talking about Christmas. Easter is when Jesus died on the cross for all of our sins. And three days later, he came out of his hole, saw his shadow and went back in for six more weeks of winter."

    I disagree. Capitalism is littered with junk companies that tried to produce products the mainstream couldn't afford.



    Affordability isn't the issue really. The problem won't be companies not being able to exist. The problem is that you will have a very large part of your society without any purpose or function.

    What happens when people have limited income and no purpose......




    How is the population rate doing? I should think it's going down. The baby boomers are starting to die off so that may "reduce the surplus population".
    I've only seen the trailers for the movie franchize "The Purge" but it seems like things may be ripe for something like that in 10 or 15 years. Darwin is still alive and well. I'll be gone by then, one way or the other.

  3. And because of that outlaw jump there were NO parachute demos at MLB games for a very long time. (20, 25 years?)
    I don't follow baseball anymore but I remember watching that game with Joe Morgan. He said right then that this stunt would be bad for skydiver demos.

    But we both thought it was pretty cool.

    One time, and one time only, I found microwave popcorn with butter but no salt. At home, for us, it's strictly Orville Redenbacker popped in a dedicated sautee pan with melted butter poured over. I know, I know, I always believed that you'd be paying a lot more for just a fancy jar but one time they were out of the other non-microwave popcorn (they had walls of different microwave but two versions of non-microwave, the little plastic krogers sack or Orville) so I had to get it and I've never gone back, it's worth the cost.But anyway, microwave is handy at work, the airport, everywhere. But they always put at least three times as much salt as I like. It's very easy to keep a thing of popcorn salt and add the amount I like, but adding butter when I'm not in my own kitchen would be more trouble than it's worth. This stuff was perfect, so I never found it again.




    I'm old enough to remember real theater popcorn. They all used coconut oil and real butter. However much salt they used didn't bother me but that was really good popcorn. Now they've quit using the coconut oil and ask if you want "butter flavoring" YUCK!!!!

    The other tasty snack I used to like was called a Boston Cream Pie. I forgot who made it but it was like yellow cake with a layer of icing in the middle. Way better than Twinkies.

    Wednesday I ate something that my stomach did not like.
    Since then I have been sneaking into small, dark rooms, hanging out with a variety of people that I would not like to be associated with.
    Appeals to various gods.
    Great blasts of hot air, but nothing solid in the end.
    After it is all over, I feel drained.




    I feel the same way about this time every 4 years. More so this time around. Seems like the perpetrators have constipation of ideas and diareah of the mouth at the same time.

  10. Maybe he did, and is just a really bad shot.


    And maybe he is just a really bad cop. There are bad cops out there. I like to think a small percentage. There are also incompetent cop out there. They will be there until their peers force them out of the law officer business or they get competent. The "Blue Wall of Silence" is part of the "us vs them" mentality. When good cops out the bad cops things will start to get better.

    I heard an interesting interview on NPR this afternoon about this issue; the speaker was rather in favor of the new ruling. The videos are still accessible via the court, and via discovery during a trial. However, they cannot just be willy-nilly asked for with a FOIA request.

    When you consider that the videos are full of innocent and uninvolved people, and that most of them have not, in fact, signed any sort of release, it makes sense to require a higher bar than "I'm trolling for tabloid news, or a lawsuit, or just to find dirt on someone."

    There are far more videos not involving a person getting shot by police. Assault victims, robbery victims, domestic abuse victims. These victims do not deserve to be "paraded" through the media like side show exhibits. BUT there needs to be some repercussion when the video does come out and contradicts the official report. A teenager was shot in Chicago. The official report said that he was advancing on the officers in a threatening manner when he was shot. SEVENTY THREE officers signed that report. When the video was finally released, a full year after the fact, it showed the teenager to be backing away and not threatening any one when he was shot. Of the 73 signers of that false report, only the ones who fired their weapons were reprimanded. The "blue wall" of silence is what hides the bad cops. The "you lie and I'll swear to it" mentality is one of reasons it's difficult to weed out the bad ones.

    Not unlike trying to get one doctor to testify against another in a malpractice suit. But that's a different subject only with similarities.

  13. Mickey Mouse was in divorce court.
    The judge says, "Mr. Mouse, insanity is not a cause for divorce."
    Mickey replies, "Your Honor, I didn't say she was crazy. I said she was fucking Goofy."

    >Hate is alive and well in Canada

    Well, if Trump loses here in the US, maybe he has a political future up in Canada. He could still have a wall . . .




    But in that case, it would be a wall to keep people in.;)

    What could possibly go wrong?




    Have you noticed that there are certain phrases that should set off alarm bells in your head.
    Phrases like:
    "What could possibly go wrong?" You'll find out when it's too late.
    "What's the worst that could happen?" See above>
    "It's just a 5 minute job" 2 hours later you're half way done.

    There are more, I just can't think of them right now.:P

  20. Karma is a bitch, isn't it?
    This obviously proves that a "skydiving cat" will land on the skydivers feet. And then run off.

    There was a story in DeLand from the late 60s about a cat that was dropped out of a plane at about 1,000 feet and landed (impacted) off the end of a runway. The cat was gone when they went to retrieve it. Some time later, weeks, months, a cat showed up at the clubhouse. Had the same coloring as the previous cat but the face was pretty flat.
    I wasn't there. I didn't see it. If it's a lie, I'm not the first one to tell it.
    (But the damaged face would indicate that the cat did indeed land on face down if not on its feet.)

    Car-towing a ramair canopy is a pretty stupid idea. Don't do that.




    Not if you've got the right set up and equipment. It's a stupid idea to do anything without the right set up and equipment.
