The Friday ONT is Absolutely Free! [Weirddave]]

Happy Friday everybody! CDR M is busy this weekend, so y'all are stuck with me again for the ONT. “What did we do to deserve this?” I hear you wail. “Wednesday nights are bad enough, but weekends too?”. Tough titty, said the kitty. You have been bad Morons. Bad Morons, bad! You must be made to suffer and learn your place in the hierarchy.

Free Speech

Speaking of knowing our place, Glen Reynolds wrote a column this week called Free speech of the 21st century. In it he concludes that speech is freer, but people are not.

But as the technical barriers to self-expression have dropped, the social barriers seem to have increased. A few decades ago, both left and right believed in free speech. Students at Berkeley and elsewhere protested to demand free speech rights, and a national consensus arose that the answer to ideas one dislikes is not suppression, but more speech.
That’s not so much the case today. As Kimberley Strassel notes in her new book, The Intimidation Game, it’s now open season on free speech, at least when it’s expressing the wrong views.

With the looming threat of a Hillary presidency, it's important to remember that the Hill Dog has vowed to get Citizen's United overturned. No matter what the Marxist left says, Citizen's United simply reaffirms the right of citizens to criticize elected officials and government. If that goes, well, there's not much left of the 1st Amendment, is there?

Free Verse

There's a thing going around on Twitter called the Friday Fiction: 100 Word Challenge (#FridayFiction) for writers. Basically, each week there is a picture, and people are challenged to write a story of exactly 100 words-no more, no less-about it. It's an intriguing task, and the limitations force you to be creative. I only did it once, last Halloween, the picture was the one above of the moon. This is what I came up with:

The moon.

The pregnant moon.

She giggled a little as the thought occurred to her, her breath steaming in the crisp October night. How can a moon be pregnant? she wondered. Who or what would impregnate it? She imagined the two of them, the moon and it's hopeful lover, the sun perhaps, enjoying coffee in a Soho diner, the night rife with romantic possibilities.

A pregnant moon. How silly!

She giggled again and carried that amusing thought with her into the Stygian darkness as the creature's jaws closed on her throat for the final time.

The moon.

The pregnant moon.


Free States

Here's a nifty little interactive graph ranking the 50 states by their relative freedom on a whole host of issues, including overall. Overall, my home state of Maryland comes in 46th. Hurrah for the Old Line State. Kind of ironic that the state song entreats it's citizens to “burst the tyrant's chain”, no? (Yes, I know the “tyrant” in question was Lincoln. No, that doesn't lessen my point).


Free Elections


I mentioned Dan Bongino in Wednesday's ONT. He's running for Congress in Florida. If you've got a couple of bucks that are burning a hole in your pocket, you could do worse than sending them his way. I like his slogan - “Fix the darn problem!” I've known Dan for years now. I've campaigned for him, and I've even debated conservative principles with him. He gets it.

Free Country


Looking In The Right Direction

What all too often goes unremarked-upon is that the law de jure – statutes passed by Congress and signed by the president – is far less important than the law de facto – what the power of the State is used to impose upon Us the People. Sam Francis would tell you that the law de facto has become whatever our Ruling Elite® decides it is at any given moment. Having succeeded in separating itself from the rest of us and closing off its borders against dilution by American patriots such as Stephen Graham Sumner, it will only enforce “laws” that advance or safeguard Ruling Elite® privileges.


Freedom of the Press


The Freedom of the Press: George Orwell on the Media’s Toxic Self-Censorship

Animal Farm.jpg

I think what many of us forget is that freedoms have to be nurtured. I first started blogging here doing the garden thread. I like gardening. I know a bit about it, and I enjoy putting in the plants, and watering them, and I really enjoy eating the literal fruits of my labors. What I'm notso hotso at is tending the garden. Weeds have to be pulled, bird netting erected, chicken wire to keep out small animals must be kept in good repair. It's a good analogy for our freedoms. Those of us of us lucky enough to have come of age in America during the later half of the 20th century are unimaginably fortunate to have enjoyed the fruits of out ancestor's hard work. It's easy to overlook that freedom and prosperity are not the natural order of things, and even easier to overlook the Gramscian rot that has poisoned our institutions. We haven't been tending our freedom garden, and now it may just be too late to bring in anymore crops.

Animal Farm was published 71 years ago this week.

Marxist Feminism’s Ruined Lives


Free Sex

UPDATE OK, I've changed the link here. I'm sorry, I wanted to tie the story back to the Marxist Feminism link above, but I can see now that the potential for an ugly argument is too high. Everyone posting up until this point (11:17 EDT) has respected my wishes about avoiding the fight, for which y'all have my undying gratitude, but this thread is going to go on all night and I can't stay up to babysit it that long. Here is a replacement link.

Councils pay for disabled to visit prostitutes and lap-dancing clubs from £520m taxpayer fund

Because it's only money, right? Taxpayer money. I feel bad for someone disabled who has difficulty finding someone to have sex with, but it is not the job of the taxpayers to subsidize. Why couldn't he pay for his own hooker? And why fly him to Amsterdam, don't they have prostitutes in England?

It all goes back to the idea that the state has to “care” for everyone. And if they have nobody who needs “care”, state agencies will make up something, some “care”, that absolutely has to be given.

How else can they justify their salaries and jobs?


On the subject of sex:

It's not just women. Former NFL star with a Super Bowl ring, plenty of money and fame, and he does this. Unreal.


Free Clothing


If you make it yourself.

Here's What the Iceman Was Wearing When He Died 5,300 Years Ago.

Edgar Allan Poe Had a Time Machine and I Can Prove It

In an interview with Nautilus, Italian astronomer Alberto Cappi speaks of Poe’s prescience, admitting, “It’s surprising that Poe arrived at his dynamically evolving universe, because there was no observational or theoretical evidence suggesting such a possibility. No astronomer in Poe’s day could imagine a non-static universe.”


Free Beer!


Open source beer. I can't tell if the site is defunct, or if just some of the links are. In any event, it's a great marketing concept (this sentiment is not shared by pub and tavern owners).

Free Choice

Always worth watching, and always sobering that the speech is as apropos today as it was when it was given.

Re Darren Sharper:

>>The woman said Sharper was so arrogant and "twisted" that he kept drugging and raping women even after he knew the attack on her was being investigated.

>>She said a mistake is something that happens once and is corrected, but it was a way of life for Sharper and his friends.

26 Reading the Sharper story... so he agreed to plead guilty in exchange for a 9-year sentence, and then the judge sentenced him instead to 18 years? That doesn't seem right. Not that he isn't a scumbag, but if the judge is going to throw out the plea agreement, then shouldn't his plea be thrown out with it?

You can't just "turn it around". Males and females have entirely different roles in sex. An older woman having sex with a 16 year old boy is not the same thing as an older guy having sex with a 16 year old girl. For one, it's only the female who can get pregnant, which makes all the difference.

The fact that people are trying to push sex laws as being entirely the same for guys and girls is crazy. Sex is different for each and the laws need to reflect that clear fact.

If it were my 16 year old son in that position I'd probably give him a high five.

Question for you. Why not just start a private practice?

Posted by: Ricardo Kill at August 19, 2016 10:30 PM (9ym/





It's a fair question. It's because I suck at networking, marketing and salesmanship.

Posted by: Insomniac at August 19, 2016 10:36 PM (0mRoj)


I had a private practice for a couple of years as a CPA, specializing in computerized accounting systems (but able to do regular accounting or tax, as well). The problem was that I was quite good at what I did....and the reason I was good at it was because I could go into an OCD mode....and that made me a bad person to have a private practice -- because every day you have to sell a little, set-up a little, arrange resources a little, do a little, write-up a little, bill a little, and connect a little.


If you go OCD on any part of that, it creates a "hiccup" that slowly moves through the chain, screwing up your organization along the way.

You can't just "turn it around". Males and females have entirely different roles in sex. An older woman having sex with a 16 year old boy is not the same thing as an older guy having sex with a 16 year old girl. For one, it's only the female who can get pregnant, which makes all the difference.

The fact that people are trying to push sex laws as being entirely the same for guys and girls is crazy. Sex is different for each and the laws need to reflect that clear fact.

If it were my 16 year old son in that position I'd probably give him a high five.

Posted by: Insomniac at August 19, 2016 10:39 PM (0mRoj)

Contrary to popular male opinion, female teachers banging students does severely damage a teenage boy. It destroys their sense of trust and damages him psychologically.

Just because they are teenage boys does not mean they can't be traumatized leaving lifelong scars.

The thinking has to change to protect boys, who are being left behind.

Posted by: chemjeff at August 19, 2016 10:45 PM (DSncV)


The word "slut" means "girl", to begin with. Yes, it's okay for a guy to screw around but a girl certainly should not.

Sorry to break it to you, jeff, but men and women are actually ... different. We play different roles and have different tasks. Youu can complain to nature but it will always remain a fact that a girl can only have one child/birth a year while a guy can impregnate 1000 women in a year. It is unfair, I know, but that's how evolution worked out and most sane societies tend to reflect that.

Exactly, and that's why the laws *have* to be the same. Otherwise there is no protection for boys, beyond what their family is willing to mete out, and that's not a good thing for society.

The facts cited in the linked article are outrageous.

- The males were both 16 years old
- The age of consent in Kentucky is 16
- The woman worked as a substitute school teacher and the age of consent with figures of authority is 18
- However, she was no longer working at the time the sex occurred
- She initially met the males when she was working
- The state says authority carried over so she was still a figure of authority even though she was no longer teaching

Ridiculous.

144 He tried not to think about it. It was all he could possibly think about.

He was naked, covered in sweat and grime, about to die. He was bleeding profusely. He had lost everything, physically and metaphysically. Death would taste like candy when it came, he felt.

He had driven on that road for days. It felt like more; weeks, years, centuries. He was kind of glad when he finally ran out of gas; he thought he would finally find help. It arrived complete with trolls, reapers, knives, a broken heart, and unimaginable pain.

Then he saw a sign in the middle of the desert.

It took hours and hours, maybe days, but he finally found his way in front of it. He thought that if he read it, it would contain his salvation. Finally, he said, he thought, he dreamed, he salivated. Finally, an answer.

He finally got his answer. It was his official prescription of doom. And the message killed him.

He was finally free, to be enslaved in hell forever.

From the 2/18/2016 hearing:

On May 29, 2015, Darren Sharper pled guilty to counts 4, 5, & 6 of the Superseding Indictment.
The Court rules on the objections to the Pre-Sentence Report.
The Court rejects the Rule 11(c)(1)(C) plea agreement.
Sentencing is set for March 3, 2016 at 9:30 a.m.
Defendant shall have up to and including the date set for Sentencing to withdraw his
plea.
Defendant is remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal and is to return on the date

167 Watching the Reds play the Dodgers tonight, very emotional moment for relief pitcher Michael Lorenzen.

He has been gone this week on leave, his father died on Monday. He returned to the team today and was pitching in relief in the 7th inning, and came to bat in the bottom of the 7th inning and hit a 3 run home run (he is actually a pretty good hitter, played centerfield as well as pitched in college).
He was almost in tears after he circled the bases and came into the dugout. Very nice kid, very well liked on the team. The guys on the team just mobbed him when he came back into dugout. He got a standing O from the crowd.

But it kept getting larger and larger, its gravitational pull drawing the landscape ahead into the air like a rug.

He stopped the car and fapped one last time, like Caitlyn Jenner the night before her operation. He thought of the Cornocopeia in Star Trek Doomsday Machine episode, just before the gravitational shock waves pulverized him into a gaseous oblivion.

Most wine sold these days is "dry" -- most of the sugars get fermented out into alcohol, until the alcohol poisons the yeast. "Dessert wines", "sparkling wines", and "wino wines" are still notably sweet.

It's already happened. Kid was 14 at the time the teacher got pregnant. Teacher decided she didn't like being a single parent, who oddly enough found it difficult to get jobs in her chosen field, took him to court, and unbelievably the judge sided with her. And now that's precedent.

I had to drive from Temple to Killeen earlier in the week, during a downpour.

I saw an accident due to some nimrod driving way too fast for conditions, and he ended up in a ditch damn near on its side.

I will never understand Texas drivers when confronted with rain.

On the plus side, finally back home, with a new roommate.

Carl was discharged yesterday, and will have to endure 2x a week physical therapy.

He gives new meaning to the term "ornery"

And there you go, acting with more journalistic integrity than any of the "journalists" of the day.....next thing you know, you're going to refuse to fabricate quotes, not portray news stories as meaning 180 degrees from what they actually mean, state all facts before moving your agenda, or edit video to make your political opponents look like idiots. If you'd gone to journalism school, you'd know how things are supposed to be done.

263 *Story*

"As he stepped into the batters box for the last time, he knew he shouldn't have finished-off the Val-U-Rite the evening before.

The first pitch was at his chin, and he knew it was deliberate.

Thinking back on his career, it was the best of times; it was the next-to-best of times.

The next pitch was a perfect strike, low and away.

As he stepped-out of the box to take a breath, he knew what would happen next. He stepped back-in and took the next pitch right in the balls.

Retirement was a blessed thing."

The photograph's timing and perspective give you the illusion that the road will lead you to the moon. It doesn't. Rockets do, and you have to be a trained astronaut, and this all costs lots of money.

(1) The prep is far worse than the procedure. (2) I did it without anesthetic. The prep keeps you up all night, so you're only half "with-it" anyway -- and afterward, you go home and sleep either way. (3) They schedule all of them in the early morning. You go home, stop eating, take disgusting semi-toxic watery gorp that shits EVERYTHING out of your guts over the next 16 horrible hours, get driven to the doc before any reasonable person is awake. Have a well-lubed garden hose rammed up your poop chute while you get to watch your insides on the monitor (the corners are particularly unpleasant), go home and get to eat something, then fall asleep because you've essentially been awake for 36 hours. This is not hospital stuff.

I've never seen it this cool and wet in August in northeastern Texas. Joe Bastardi's site, Weatherbell, has the generally cooler temperatures continuing through the end of September.

BTW, I would be surprised if Bastardi wasn't a Moron. I'm a subscriber to the site and he isn't shy about sharing his political leanings.

Yeah, Raven draws the pics, hand binds the books and sells them.

She is an amazing artist.

And yes, my Raiders are looking promising this year, which I haven't been able to say for more than a decade.

BTW, your Browns has our former HC and QB (Hue Jackson and Terell Pryor, though Pryor makes a better WR).

As far as RGIII as your QB...hope he does better there than with the Redskins.

If a proctologist is there when you go out under the drugs, but you wake up with a brain surgeon attending, then you might have your answer, right there.

Yes, there are very few male teachers in schools, to the detriment of the students. The schools have become a Big Club for The Sisterhood. The Marxist Feminists have brainwashed the public into thinking that a man wanting to use their talents to teach children or teenagers are sexual violent predators.

It is so bad that I get a bad vibe as a father that we are not wanted or needed according to the teachers unions and NOW.

43 to 57 isn't that far off. And, not sure what your point with the coaching is. Male coaches are still men, right? For a woman teacher looking for companionship, why would the fact that some of the men are coaches matter?

Just so you can enjoy this to its fullest....your colon only goes "up" for half a foot before it heads to your left, right above the crease between your leg and abdomen. Once it gets to the left side of your guts, it turns and heads upward until it gets to your diaphragm, where it has a "corner" and starts heading from left to right. After reaching the right side of your guts, it has another "corner" and heads downward until it hits a 3-way junction with your appendix and small intestine.

So your doctor is trying to run this tube up in there and gets to one of the corners, and has to use the natural curve of the tube to get started around, possibly with massage from outside. I believe my guy was extremely competent, but it took some doing, wasn't pleasant, and was weird for about a month afterward.

Another thing is that the textbook pictures of intestines are total bullshit. It's really much more random.

I just found out my doctor is going to set me up for my first colonoscopy. Are they usually a one-day in-and-out deal, or have people here had to stay overnight in the hospital?


I've had 3, and none of them with sedation. The MD required me to have an IV though, and told the nurse that I knew I had to have it. But no drugs though. I was able to walk out afterwards and drive. I'm in CA, and CA has laws specifically about this situation. "No Sedation" is the only escape.

Pro-tip (with profuse pre-apologies to all): For the Love of God, Make Certain that you are not, and have not been, constipated in the last week. No need to ask why, you will experience "why".

Fasting the day before was relatively easy. I chewed 1 pack of gum (not a small pack like Wrigley's; the larger packs by the checkout) to keep my hunger sated.

Pro-tip: Yellow gum (the actual color of the chewing gum) is a good choice. Blue and green are ok ... red is out. Red will be seen, and you might have an extra-thorough examination, and only because you chose the wrong color of chewing gum.

Drinking "The Drink" (the night before) is a special hell. The first 2 glasses aren't too bad (the flavoring doesn't quite mask the taste & smell of bicycle inner tube), but 3 & 4 are ... well, you need some personal will. If you have the version where you take The Pill first, then you're done. Otherwise, the prescription calls for 8 glasses ... you should plan on at least 6.

The actual process was just under 15 minutes. I had major cramps on and off for minutes 2 through 14. Then I was wheeled out, given my clothes back, and released. I did have to get the attending nurse(s) to verify that I was not under sedation, so it took another 30 minutes, instead of 15.


If, OTOH, you have sedation, only the fasting, gum and drink will affect you. You (in CA; it's the law) will need to have someone drive you home after the sedation wears off (an hour or 3).

Well, the law firm he contacted sent him a huge packet to fill out...

Fact is, when he went to the emergency room for a upper respiratory infection back in June, they prescribed him amoxicillin, which opened the door for C. diff. By the time I took him to the emergency room for vomiting and diarrhea, it was too late. Plus, they didn't run the c. diff test until three days after he was admitted.

It looks like he just might have a case. He's pissed that they didn't tell him the risks and prescribe him probiotics.

I was resistant to the anesthesia, too, so I was fully awake during the procedure. It wasn't my idea of fun but I've endured worse things from doctors. Apparently it's a rare thing. The doctor was very apologetic and did his best to be, um, gentle.

43 to 57 isn't that far off. And, not sure what your point with the coaching is. Male coaches are still men, right? For a woman teacher looking for companionship, why would the fact that some of the men are coaches matter?

I just don't think this explains the behavior. The women in question aren't in a situation where there are no options their own age. Something else is going on.

Posted by: Anon Y. Mous at August 19, 2016 11:59 PM (R+30W)

My point was Marxist Feminism has taken over the entire educational system. Male teachers are coaches first so unless you play a sport you are SOL. Most men in American are brainwashed to support and enable their own destruction via Marxist Feminism.

What is going on has to do with Marxist Feminism. It is about making the female sexual strategy above everything else. I listed NOW and the NEA as examples because they are Marxist Feminist groups with large amounts of pull from national to state levels.

Feminists justify and excuse wrong behavior which is taboo in order to make it the norm. That is the goal. It is in the article in the ONT Weirddave linked.

418 Steve - here's advice, embrace the purge. As unpleasant as it is, as much discomfort as it may entail, the cleaner the plumbing the easier it is for all involved.

BTW, it's really not a big deal. People go through it every day.

Posted by: Mike Hammer, etc., etc. at August 20, 2016 12:15 AM (jO7js)

419 As far as the teachers thing, this.

I, most undeservedly, derived the benefit of a "Big Brother" mentor, but well outside of the umbrella of said organization.

Back in the early '70s, my older brother was beating feet with all due haste, along the Highway to Hell, and I was somewhat following him along said path, although more slowly, and with much hesitation, withal.

I would have been about in the 7th grade at the time, and he, in the 9th.

But he was already neck deep in drugs, crime, auto theft, mayhem.

I was a drunk at every opportunity, a budding* stoner, but much less into the mayhem, and far more into reading far above my level and years.

budding, hah! so damn clever!

(do NOT dis-believe me on this. I was checked into Balboa Naval Hospital ER, in San Diego, for alcohol poisoning when I was in the 6th grade.)

And while he was being all mayhem-y, I was still really hard-wired to be on the "good guy" side of things, mind alterations aside.

Very long stories condensed by magnitudes of order.

Said "non-Big Brother" was a San Diego Deputy Marshall* Dude taught me to sail, shoot, do woodwork, rebuild a Harley engine, go fishing, and just generally, to be a Man more than a Boy.

* San Diego Marshall's Dept was later sublimated into the San Diego Sherriff"s Department

Even back in the '90s, I'd thought long about paying back that man's gift, by doing similar work, or even helping with literacy efforts with under advantaged kids.

But this was when the whole "suppressed memories" thing was rampant, and the day care people being prosecuted, sued, etc.

There I was, late '30s, single, no kids.

And I figured, no way in hell.

I was then, and even now at 58, am dead in the target demographic for the professional accusers.

They've stolen my chance to give back, and I will hate them forever for that very reason.

Best I can do now, is to keep teaching people to shoot safely, well, accurately, and later, aggressively, if needed.

And helping misguided Ds to realize that they're really not in tune with D values.

But all that crap with teachers and kids, and in the decades before. It pisses me off.

I've since learned to drink, without being a drunk. Haven't touched pot since I was 17. And generally, got my shit together while sadly, my brother continued his ride straight into a life of crime, jails, prisons, penitentiaries and poverty.

I own that to two things. My friend, brother and benefactor, Lyle, and to Jesus Christ, who changed my heart when I was 17.

Elsewise, I'd have stayed on that greased skid sled to Hell and beyond.

As for the teachers. I'll shaddup now, before I get banned.

421 You want cramps? Take some lactalose. That's a laxative type of thing. It's an undigestable sugar molecule (bi- or tri saccharide, I'm not sure) that passes straight through to the colon.

Now there, it makes the gut bacteria go crazy, pulling water in and making a ton of gas.

I had to take that several years ago, and damn it was the worst cramping I've ever experienced. And the farts. It was impossible to distinguish gas from liquid. I sat on the toilet for a couple of hours almost continuously, with power farting the likes I'd never seen.

My gut bacteria had a party indeed.

Yesterday (day before?) it was her little brother - maybe 8 or 9 - but the little dog pulled him into my yard, or he knew to come here (it's kind of known that cool dogs are welcome here to play with Tucker. Always fresh water & poop bags available, too. A stopover for dogwalkers, if you will).

Anyway, I am really surprised that I haven't been visited by a Dad yet. I'm sure the kids have mentioned "that cool old man with the beard" around the corner.
I'm waiting for a large black man with a baseball bat to come walking up the driveway - holding onto a Paris Hilton dog, of course.

That always stuck with me as somehow vaguely hilarious.

I just got an app for my Samsung 2 nights ago - I think called, simply, Pedometer. No silly calorie counters or gimmicks, just steps/distance. 5 star rating.
It's telling me that I walk a mile a day even when I never leave the house (well, the yard). That's a lot of trips to the mailbox and toilet. OK, the fridge. That might account for 1/2 mile right there...

Seems off, but who knows? That was my question - accuracy.
I'll try to check it more, and dial in my stride length some.

You do realize that preseason isn't exactly an accurate gauge, right. A team can win every game in the preseason, just to tank during the season. I didn't have very high hopes with the Raiders beating GB at Lambeau. I'm just glad they didn't lose in the double digits.

And, I'm pretty sure you're not exactly on the up and up regarding the Raiders. As a fan for over 40 years, the past 13-14 years have been the worst. Do I think we'll make to the playoffs? Honestly, maybe not for another season or two, though it's not out of the realm of possibility. With Denver with no Peyton, SD with Rivers, and KC with whoevers, the AFC West is up for grabs.

But hey, making fun of the Raiders is part of the game, sad to say. *shrugs*

Hey, I'm not making fun of the Raiders.
They're not the lousy good for nothing piece of shit neighbors we have to play twice a year, so there is no upside to it.

It's just that I heard the announcers saying how high expectations were for the Raiders this year, and how good their front four on D were, and how much they spent on O-line free agents etc, but they didn't put anything up with their starters on either side of the ball.

Like I said, it didn't look like the Packers imposed their will, but that the Raiders were tripping themselves up.
I'm missing the hype.

but it does help that the Broncos won't have the 5-head at the helm.
It doesn't help that they didn't seem to need him last year.

Posted by: BignJames


"In 2001 X-rays and a CT scan revealed that Ítzi had an arrowhead lodged in his left shoulder when he died, and a matching small tear on his coat. The discovery of the arrowhead prompted researchers to theorize Ítzi died of blood loss from the wound, which would probably have been fatal even if modern medical techniques had been available.

Further research found that the arrow's shaft had been removed before death, and close examination of the body found bruises and cuts to the hands, wrists and chest and cerebral trauma indicative of a blow to the head.

One of the cuts was to the base of his thumb that reached down to the bone but had no time to heal before his death.

Currently, it is believed that the cause of death was a blow to the head, but researchers are unsure of what inflicted the fatal injury."

If it wasn't Vic, he knew the guy. Probably Blurtnick. He was known for his "Run-By-Bonkings".

He'd take your stuff and sell it for large, round stones; which were used for currency at the time.

You could deposit them in large mountainside slots, push a rock and choose a woman back then.

The PSN has made free games available for awhile, now. I don't know if they are entirely downloadable and store-able, like XBox, but they are trying to keep pace with the XBox Live free games.

569 Actually, Sony was doing the free games for subscribers thing for a couple years before Microsoft did the same. On the 360 the games are yours to keep using if you let the XBL subscription lapse but on Sony platforms and Xbox One they're playable during a subscription, though you can let it lapse, start up again, and the games will still be attached to your account.

But his best pal Adam, our beloved Maine coon known to the Yahoo group, passed away suddenly on Mother's Day, only six years old, with only three days' notice, of a vicious cancer, and Benny and I have both been knocked out of orbit ever since. I fear Benny has gone looking for him.

If you pray, please pray for Benny's return.

I am sorry to be a downer, but I know no other resource of so many good people, and we need all the help we can get now.
