Overnight Open Thread (12 May 2017)

Ouch. The craven cowards at the FBI, starting at the top with Comey.

Russia, Russia, Russia

This Russia garbage is rapidly becoming the Democrats own version of "birtherism". 12 times Dems, Repubs said no evidence of Trump-Russia collusion; 10 times people claimed there was. As leaky as DC is these days, if there was something to this, it would've leaked long ago.

While we're talking about Russia, this analysis of the MSM by the editor at War News Updates nails it.

I am now deeply sceptical and distrustful of what the U.S. news media posts and prints ..... and the last time that I felt like this is when I had to rely on Russian news organisations like TASS and Pravda for my news while growing up in the former Soviet Union.

Viral Levels

Well, at least on FB, it would seem the Comey firing wasn't so viral.

Smiling Dog

Climate Change

I love how the MSM tries to imply that even Trump's intel team is pushing AGW climate change when it looks like the report stays away from the AGW part. Intel agencies tell Congress that climate change poses national security threats.

"The trend toward a warming climate is forecast to continue in 2017," the report states, noting that 2016 was the hottest year on record worldwide. Climate scientists have firmly tied this to human-caused emissions of greenhouse gases, though the report does not make that link.

Firmly tied? Really? Those words sound pretty wishy washy if they have in fact scientifically proved there is a connection. But they can't prove it and rely on a circle jerk of so-called climate scientists giving their consensus. Sea level rise around Norfolk is tied to land subsidence, not, you know, the sea level rising or rising CO2.

Global quackery: Earth has not warmed for past 19 years.

Related: EPA Chief concedes no climate impact from 'climate rule': It's about 'reinventing a global economy'.

Ransomware

Be careful on the internet. An NSA derived ransomware worm is shutting down computers worldwide.

Sharks

File this under things you don't want to hear when swimming at the beach. 'You are paddle-boarding next to approximately 15 great white sharks', chopper tells CA beachgoers.

One Ginormous Leap For Dog Kind

College Brownshirts

University of Arizona is hiring students to tattle on others for 'bias incidents'. I'm kinda laughing that it only pays $10 an hour. You'd think they'd at least stand in solidarity with the $15 an hour pledge idiots.

Pet Rock

Every generation needs their pet rock I guess. I don't get the infatuation with them. This $500 million trend is spinning the toy business out of control.

Broken Arrow

A thermonuclear bomb slammed into a US farm in 1961, and part of it is still missing.

That's retarded. There were clear questions and obvious problems regarding Barky's eligibility (and Sheriff Joe's posse did a pretty comprehensive investigation into that photoshopped jpeg he claimed was his birth certificate) and only a total fool thought that it should not, at the very least, be heard in court.

49 Hey everybody. Sorry to have been gone for a bit. Got a work-at-home assignment and been working in the evenings. This one could go on indefinitely, which is good IMHO. :-) But I'll still try to drop by often.

Trying tonight to make jambalaya; this will be attempt #2. Last time I had no meat or protein to add, so I tossed in some leftover sliced-up beef hot links; this time I decided to try throwing in some shrimp. But I only had 1/3 pound of shrimp, so thought I would also toss in some microwave-thawed chicken as well.

Then I had the idea to run both through a shrimp boil. I did so with the McCormick box stuff; it came out seemingly okay, but didn't go anything like I thought it would. Anyway I added it to the jambalaya, along with a ton of tomato sauce, tomatoes and garlic ('cuz I'm Italian, okay?!?) and it's cooking in the pot right now.

So quickie question: it's not a violation in Cajunland to throw chicken into your shrimp/crab boil, is it? Was wondering if somehow that was what was throwing off everything in the pot (it took forever to get the water to boil off, it seemed).

Posted by: buzzsaw90 at May 12, 2017 10:11 PM (vChNs)

Depends on what's wrong. Had a similar issue with my last TV. Was quoted as a 400 repair. Asked my Dad to look at it and he was able to repair for the cost of the capacitors- $5.

91 I am now deeply sceptical and distrustful of what the U.S. news media posts and prints ..... and the last time that I felt like this is when I had to rely on Russian news organisations like TASS and Pravda for my news while growing up in the former Soviet Union.

As I have said many times, the difference between the Soviet media and today's American media is that TASS and Pravda told lies and spread propaganda for fear of being arrested and sent to the gulag, while the American media does it willingly.

That is more than a little chilling.

Anyway, they have a TV going all day every day showing sports; unfortunately it's usually on ESPN.

So today they were doing one of their lists of topics, with only a few minutes (and a countdown clock) to get through them. One of the topics was... Tim Tebow.

Decided to watch to see if there was any political talk or putdowns about him. Nope, not that I could tell. In fact one of the hosts was supportive of him; I guess TT is trying to make a comeback somewhere.

On a good day, I go about a mile on a path at a nearby park. One of the things that helps IMHO is that the park is a short drive away... in the past I was walking *to* the park, walking around it, then walking back.

Now it feels like a bit of a trip, which for me adds something to it. I'm just weird that way I guess.

Would like to work up to 2 miles (two laps around the park) by the end of the year. I admit that as of now, I usually have to take a break on a bench about halfway around.

I know most of the Mongolian girls I met were attractive in all sorts of different styles (was sort of expecting the "all look alike" thing, but not by a long shot). Also about two feet taller than their grandmas, but I think a lot of the oldsters had ricketts because vitamin deficiency is a major problem even now.

172 On a good day, I go about a mile on a path at a nearby park. One of the things that helps IMHO is that the park is a short drive away... in the past I was walking *to* the park, walking around it, then walking back.

Now it feels like a bit of a trip, which for me adds something to it. I'm just weird that way I guess.

Would like to work up to 2 miles (two laps around the park) by the end of the year. I admit that as of now, I usually have to take a break on a bench about halfway around.

He's playing Class A baseball in the South. I think his team is out of one of the Carolinas.

Anyways, he's selling out stadiums both at home and on the road. Some stadiums have double the ticket sales when his team rolls in to town.

The league plays around the South, so lots of families show up along with Florida Gator fans. Opposing teams are even putting ticket packages together around Tebow and his team.

And as always, he tries to be real nice about signing autographs, talking to people, etc. It's yet another great story about a great guy.

181 Ugh. Bad visit to the Vet today. Miss Sophie has yelped a couple of times when being picked up. Concerned about it, I hied her off to the Vet where they did an ultrasound, and x-ray. She seems okay, except for what is likely an emerging minor back problem.

She's okay for a dog her age.

The disturbing stuff came as I was taking her out. A lady was walking in with her dog which had been attacked by a bear. It was on it's feet, and on the mend, but shaved all over with stitches galore. Must have been a hell of a mess after the attack. The dog was lying on the deck of their house when it happened. Not a young dog either, 14 years old, maybe 30 lbs., and licky friendly.

Then, it got worse. I saw an older lady hurrying around her car and lifting out a small, completely limp dog from the passenger side.

I immediately went to the door of the office and held it open as she ran in. She was barely in control of herself, trying to choke back uncontrolled crying.

It seems that she had just picked up the dog from the groomer, and the dog just went totally unconscious.

I don't think the lady could have been more distraught if it had been her child. Cast a pall over my day.

Honestly, as an introvert and "intuitive" on the Meyers/Briggs thing I found pretty much all the Mongols I met to be slightly (though very sweetly) insane. To me they seem super extroverted (once again, not the stereotype for Asians) and more "sensing" oriented. Then again, if you have to live in a small space with a number of others for an extended time extroversion probably helps, and if chances are good you're going to be spending a lot of time out doors (in winter) doing physical work than *liking* that sort of thing probably helps too. I can see how their history would shape a preference for those traits.

We weren't quite sure that he was full of shit, but I remember we laughed our asses off the rest of the night giving him crap.

238 Ugh. Bad visit to the Vet today. Miss Sophie has yelped a couple of times when being picked up. Concerned about it, I hied her off to the Vet where they did an ultrasound, and x-ray. She seems okay, except for what is likely an emerging minor back problem.


I've had two similar incidents within the past year with my beagle who is getting older. In both cases the vet gave me muscle relaxants and steroids. Solved the problem after a short time. But I have to keep her from trying to jump on and off the bed and the sofa. That kind of jumping is too hard on her now.

She says that Gwen Stefani used to drive everyone crazy, because even then she had great stage presence and was super-outgoing when she performed; but when she wasn't on stage, she would retreat completely into her shell, become really hard to talk to (everything answered with either 'yes' or 'no') and literally hide behind Tony Kanal, her boyfriend at the time.

Half of European royalty are related more closely than we like to ponder these days, especially a few generations back. It's why hemophilia was so prevalent in Victoria's descendants, but again, only because the gene was being passed down, not because there is anything intrinsically bad about close relatives mating, other than the social taboo.

I think the Pharaohs married their siblings, never mind mere first cousins.

I don't think I could ever learn Mongolian because I *can't hear* the differences in vowel sounds that differentiate the words.

309 Husband spent $14 on two fidget spinners for the two grandsons who live here, in payment for doing some yard work. (Well, for riding around on the tractor and moving some stuff out of the way, but...)
One of my friends from high school told me that her son's science teacher prints them out on a 3D printer and sells them to the kids for $5 apiece. Selling a kid something that you KNOW you're going to take from him at some point and put into the top drawer of your desk until the end of the year - that's what I call being an entrepreneur.

I'm very much like that.


I can work a crowd and a group for a couple of hours, but after that, I need to get away from people and decompress.


It's not that uncommon for performers since most of them think they are putting on a persona on stage and its not really them.

There's this great book called Quiet that kind of explains it.

You sort of go into extrovert mode for a period of time, and then need your alone time.

On a semi-regular basis, I have to go to this convention and talk to a gazillion people and be outgoing and super charming. At some point- either alone in the hotel room or when I finally return home, I'm so emotionally exhausted I end up having a tearful meltdown.

His daughter recalled watching him practice his war-face and speeches in the mirror. A great man, a true leader and intellectual, utterly INTJ, and able to play the part and wear the mask.

348 shibumi and others, completely understood.

I think performers especially, *have* to eventually build a wall between the 'real' person and the stage persona. Otherwise, they go crazy.

Among other things (obviously), I think one of the things that made Michael Jackson just a shade this side of insane, is that I remember there was such an *intense* focus on his personal life (and what a pervert he was). I think after a while, MJ felt as if he couldn't actually be himself *anywhere.*

Posted by: qdpsteve at May 12, 2017 11:32 PM (qazQh)

349 Well, I got my Cooey model 750 working pretty well. I wanted to try Jim's idea of shimming the bolt with a strip of card stock, but quickly realized that the geometry of the setup made that all but impossible.

I realized I had 3 problems. One, a tad too much headspace, and the main result of that was that the ejector failed to grab the rim of the cartridge every time. Second, the bolt, specifically the front half that acts as the breechblock, was binding in the receiver, such that pulling back on the bolt handle would not move it, although it would move if I pulled on the striker knob. Third, and the reason for the FTF, was that the striker was binding in the receiver, and coming to a stop before it hit the firing pin hard enough to dimple the case of the cartridge.

The second issue, I fixed first, by dint of marking the bolt with rings made with a Sharpie marker (in lieu of layout die), cycling it a few times, and filing roughness off where scratches appeared in the markings. I also used a fine sanding disc in my Dremel tool to buff the worked-over areas. Rinse and repeat several times, and I finally got the bolt to cycle smoothly when moved by the handle.

Second, I dealt with the headspace issue by putting a spot of MIG weld on the rear side of the handle stem where it follows the ramp in the receiver. Then file, trial fit, file, trial fit, on and on, until I finally got it to just close, but without huge force on the handle. Tried a couple of rounds, and still FTF, but the unfired cartridge did extract OK.

Addressed the third issue the same way as the first. Marked the circumference of the striker with Sharpie ink, and filed/buffed high areas where cycling it wore the ink off. Several go-rounds were required. Finished by spraying the entire bolt assembly with dry moly lube spray, a favorite of mine for treating sliding parts.

Assembled it, and the first round tried went bang! As it should, and ejected easily. And the spent case had a substantial divot where it was struck by the firing pin.

I left it there, as I had other things to do, and had run myself out of time. When I get a chance, I'll fire off another few rounds, and see if it's consistent. But I think I have broken the back of the problem, and it's now at the tweaking stage.

Tough day for dogs. My wife was out walking our dog Smokey this afternoon. My daughter just pulled into the driveway, having returned from college. I look out the window expecting to see my daughter walking up the front path, but instead I see my wife, half running, sobbing. At first I thought something happened to Smokey, but then I saw that he was OK...

My wife was down the street a few blocks, when a bulldog attempted to cross the street to meet her and Smokey. Didn't make it. Our street's fairly busy, typical speed of cars is 30-35 mph. The dog got hit, and dragged under the car for some distance. It was left in the middle of the street, immobile and screaming. The owner, who was in his garage, took the dog to the vet but my wife thinks the dog didn't stand much of a chance. My wife, who loves animals, was devastated. My daughter didn't get quite the homecoming she was hoping for.

Normally I'll dance with a girl, there's a couple sentences of polite conversation, and then we go our separate ways. Only this girl was clearly not eager to leave.

Yep. I'm not on the level of fame as MJ, obviously, but I've been at my current radio gig long enough that people recognize me, especially if I talk. I've had more than a few people who think they "know" me ask some personal questions, and some that have to give their critique of what they think is wrong with the station and how much better of a job THEY would do. Thankfully, they're outnumbered by the nice folks, but some days, I don't want to be "that guy on the radio". I just want to be a guy getting groceries at the store.

All art is at its most basic sharing the artist's perception with the audience. To do that an artist has to be able to see 1) what's actually there, 2) what they perceive, and 3) what could be there.

It's easy for the mind to get lost.

Yea, sorry for the downer post... shoulda thought before unloading. On a brighter note, I once saw a young pitbull (who was running across another busy street to greet me) get nailed by a van... The tough pup just bounced off the front bumper, picked himself up, and ran home. I followed him home; he was fine.

390 As to the public/private thing.

I was listed in Who's Who of Professionals in '94.

Accomplished in the Fortune 1000 boardroom environment, reporting directly to the President of a NYSE listed corporation, etc., blah, blah, blah.

I'd built up a pretty nice record of ultra-high ratings in public speaking engagements, founded a very large trade association, had two different Mayors of the City of San Antonio at different events I'd staged, (from scratch, me, no "event planners" involved.)

As to the Myers-Briggs thing? Tell me what rating you want, and I can test to that quadrant on the matrix. Without fail.

I can also "write" to whatever "voice" the customer might want for an article, editorial or such.

You want what I write to be from a Save the Whales PETArd of the first order?

I'll do it, but I'll also sabotage it in the doing, and the customer will never really know.

Point is.

The truly self-possessed individual knows themselves and knows the world around them.

But the MORON (or ETTE), never uses that awareness or skill to the use of harm.

"Boxes", are where gerbils live. I am not a gerbil.

Nor, are most of you.

391 Case in point...today, I was in a little bit of a mood. Just a mood.

Guy asks if I want to talk about it, but specifically says if I don't want to, it's okay. I tell him I really don't want to.

He says, "Okay, that's fine." Alright...no biggie right?

30 minutes later, he's all like, "Not cool, Pink, not cool" and I ask what the heck he's talking about and he goes back to me not wanting to talk to him.

I call him out and say that he said it was fine. His response: "I changed my mind." So then he says that he is mad at me because I am mad at him, which I wasn't at first but...it was starting to trend in that direction at that point.

So...I am not the most tactful person in the world, I say, "I don't know what to tell you, but you need to get it together." Rofl. Welp, that was definitely the wrong thing to say.

He tells me that really hurt his feelings, and he didn't appreciate being rejected by me, and I ended up calling him and smoothing things over.

But, good God. If this is what it's like being with an over-emotional woman...you men are doing the Lord's work.

409 Hi Rons and Ettes! Late to the thread. NC was not the only Broken Arrow event in the US. There was another one near Savannah, GA, I think and they have never found the weapon. They believe it's offshore somewhere, but they haven't been able to locate it. It may be buried under a lot of mud out in the bay. They just don't know. I do remember the Broken Arrow in Spain many moons ago and they recovered all of those.

I think performers especially, *have* to eventually build a wall between the 'real' person and the stage persona. Otherwise, they go crazy.


Among other things (obviously), I think one of the things that made Michael Jackson just a shade this side of insane, is that I remember there was such an *intense* focus on his personal life (and what a pervert he was). I think after a while, MJ felt as if he couldn't actually be himself *anywhere.*

Posted by: Jean at May 13, 2017 12:00 AM (zZb/S)

Well, they seem to be notorious for losing bolts. Bolt open, the only thing that keeps the bolt from falling right out is the sear. And if the sear spring is weak, or the mechanism gummed up, out it comes, and gets lost in the bush. Which is what happened to mine. I got a used bolt from a guy I met at the gun show, and he warned me that it would have to be basically custom-fit to the receiver.

Well... she forced the issue, ended up crying and calling me names, and we're no longer friends.

I don't regret that, however, if I had been given enough time, I might have been able to figure out a way to say "you're been an overbearing, insensitive jerk lately" in a way that was acceptable to her.

But probably not.

463 Yankeefifth, just sent you an e-mail. Mrs. Old Blue and I will be in Vegas June 11 through 17 for a couple of bowling tournaments. August is out for me because I will be in Wyoming for the total solar eclipse. I have a niece that lives in Casper and we will stay there. I checked and all of the hotels and campgrounds have been sold out for the last two years because of the eclipse. On a side note, I've just received my solar filter for my telescope and five sets of safe solar glasses. Now all I need is a telescope camera so that I can record it on my laptop. I'm getting old, and I'll probably never get the chance to see a total solar eclipse again, so this one is set in stone.

Speaking very broadly, if she's saying something false or deceptive then I'd be concerned. If it's done in such a way that it's obviously one of those eye-rolling "of course she has to say that, she's his mother" kind of deal, then I would be less concerned.

I have an idea in mind. Make a little half-hoop of thin steel, and weld a bump on the inside to fit in the rearmost part of the slot made to accommodate the bolt handle, which does not come all the way back in normal use. Carry the ends of the hoop around to the underside of the receiver, and make it such that it's trapped in place when the receiver is fitted into the stock.

It's not easy, I agree, but practice makes it less awkward. Provided you smirk/smile when she breaks off, it's not a total loss.

514 I guess "moody" isn't the exact term. I had slept in rather late, and I was feeling lazy and my stomach was hurting and I was feeling gross.

I was feeling ugly and inadequate and unsexy and just blah.

I also know, or have read at least, guys don't wanna hear about our insecurities. So, I didn't want to lament to him. I didn't tell him I was moody....he just knew something was up.

And yeah, maybe I wasn't in the right head space to talk to him at that moment, but I like him, so I want to talk to him when I can.

517 I bought a spinner thing. Five bucks US, Wal Mart. The had to lock them in a DVD keeper case to keep kids from stealing them. So much for the "specialty retailers" in that video. Reminds me of a gyroscope. I also have a set of those Chinese chrome ball things that go DING DING DING when you roll them in your hand, but i thought those were for acupuncture points or something. Also i saw a convenience store with a box that was half spinner things (empty) and half those cube toys (one left and i should have bought it).

just let it all hang out? Or if you're moody, don't talk to him at all.

Pink,
The thing that irritates me is when a friend says or hints about something, then clams up about it. It feels as if they are deliberately hiding something, or don't trust me enough to share the information. This is how I read the situation. I can sympathize with the guy for getting a little irritated - he probably feels hurt that you don't trust him. (That is my guess as to how he might feel. In reality, I have no clue!)
Yeah, he told you if you don't want to talk about it, fine. But what he really wanted was for you to confide in him, and that didn't happen.
Bottom line, don't bring up something that you don't want to talk about. (Yeah, easier said than done, I know.) If he doesn't know, he won't know you are withholding something.

Anyway, I hope things get patched up and all becomes kosher....

529 So that made me think about the MoMee in Vegas in August. The total solar eclipse is August 22 and the prime viewing area is much further north than Vegas. You can see a partial eclipse there, but not the total. This is one of those once in a lifetime events for many people, and you would have to compete against that.

Posted by: Old Blue at May 13, 2017 12:20 AM (FAo3p)

IIRC, the path of totality passes near Idaho Falls or Pocatello on I-15. I figured I would just plan to travel south the day before, and arrange to be on the road during the eclipse, and just stop and watch it from a suitable roadside vantage point.

535 Not to sound too 'aggressive,' but eye contact is a useful means of demonstrating dominance, which is a trait not a few ladies find attractive.

He's not an Aspy. I kind of wondered that myself, and it wouldn't have bothered me if he was. But, he was talking about an ex-roommate of his that was Aspy, and how he didn't understand the lack of human empathy and stuff.

But, you are right that maybe he was trying to be empathetic and it bothered him.

@526

Thank you so much for your insight. It makes a lot of sense. Like I said, I didn't bring up anything or hint at anything or anything like that. Because of things that have happened within the last week, I've been trying to give him space, play it cool, and I guess maybe I just played it too cool, and this was the straw that broke the camel's back.

I didn't apologize when I called, because genuinely, I didn't think I had anything to apologize for.

That was for the ones whose goal is marriage. Some women have been so burned that they will never marry or re-marry.
If my lady had said she did not want to marry I would have been ok with that.
However, I knew it meant a lot to her and as I love her I was willing to take the plunge eyes wide open.
No I will not say she is my dream woman want wise, but she is definitely what I need.

That they went to great lengths to fully display.
Guys, you can't win. She can dress like a fifth avenue hooker, and she will go home with some greasy toothless slob who makes her buy his drinks all night. Then she will fall in love with the worthless POS because she is bound and determined to "set him right". Then six weeks later she's back sobbing and moaning because he walked out on her because he was tired of her shit, and is off finding another woman who will buy his drinks and put up with his crap for six weeks. It's a never ending story. I know, because I've seen it in real life behind the bar of a cowboy nightclub.

Problem is you don't always know the snake is poisonous until it bites you. Or, more directly, that the woman is a psycho/mean bitch until its too late. It's uncanny the ability some of them have to camoflauge this.

I just responded by my gut, Tammy. I always do when it comes to relationships.

In an online relationship, the "trial" where you decide if it's worth going to the trouble of meeting, I just think it's easier to be who you are. No hedging, "best behavior" bullshit. If you can't be honest talking "in the dark" as it were, why even bother with the relationship? Flush out the problems right away.

Sorry, I'm not into the moody secretive thing. I would tell Pink to drop him if she thought he was being evasive or annoyingly mysterious.

But you have GOT to get over it, Jesus Christ, you're still young, you cannot carry this around for eternity.

Why the fuck do you continue to let her make you feel like this? Find something positive to think about every day and concentrate on that. Cold beer on a hot day. One tiny thing to find, to be grateful for.Every day for a month, even if it's the same damn thing.

Then next month, find two things.

Do something besides brood and piss and moan and be mad for just a minute or two a day. Work your way up to five minutes a day of pure gratitude.

My brother, when this starts, the only solution may be to say, "yes, I will fix it now that you have pointed it out to me." Then gas up the chainsaw and cut a door-sized hole in the wall. It won't fix anything, but it might end the initial argument and put you onto another one that makes more sense.

My hated moment is the "guess what" moment. I have no idea what she wants me to guess, and in my opinion she is just setting me up to fail since it has to do with someone I neither know or care about.

"so I was out with Angie, and guess what!"
"You are growing a tail?"
"what?"
"I guess you are growing a tail."
"What?"
"Ok, you won the lottery."
"What are you TALKING about?"
"I have no idea. What are you talking about?"
"Were you listening to me?"
"You aren't growing a tail, are you."

And the bonus is I probably don't have to sit through what Angie thinks.

Hell, what was that old South Park episode -- the internet went out, and one of the kids' dad, Randy I believe, could no longer achieve "sastification", so hooked on weird and kinky internet porn, he'd become.

One of his preferences IIRC was "Japanese girls puking on each other". He finally got to look at it, and they had the sound effects...

663 Learnt a few days ago from The English and Their History by Robert Tombs:

After the Norman Invasion, there was often some confusion borne of the intermingling of Anglo-Saxon and Norman French, which led to the need for redundancies in laguage. That was the origin of "aiding and abetting" and "fit and proper," among other phrases.

Thus endeth the history lesson.

For now.

689 Mrs. Old Blue and I will be in Vegas June 11 through 17 for a couple of bowling tournaments. August is out for me because I will be in Wyoming for the total solar eclipse. I have a niece that lives in Casper and we will stay there. I checked and all of the hotels and campgrounds have been sold out for the last two years because of the eclipse. On a side note, I've just received my solar filter for my telescope and five sets of safe solar glasses. Now all I need is a telescope camera so that I can record it on my laptop. I'm getting old, and I'll probably never get the chance to see a total solar eclipse again, so this one is set in stone.

I laughed at my idiot self this afternoon. I needed to weed-eat -- it's spring and shit has started growing -- and I need to start the weedeater for the first time in a while. Got some ethanol free gas to mix for it. Only paid $3.40 a gallon for it. These ethanol people can take a corn cob and do something with it.

Anyway, I got it filled with new gas mix, primed the little carb and went to yanking. I yanked and yanked. And then yanked some more. Wouldn't hit a lick.

It turned out that I was looking at the choke wrong. I thought it was fully on, but it was fully off. Put it on, and it fired right up.

The root of that is the ol' eyes just ain't what they used to be. I've got glasses, had them for several years, but can't stand to wear them. The choke indicator was sort of blurry....

Oh, I was, until the fateful night in 1973, when I got drunk on Tom Collinses at the Yellow Kittens on Block Island, and Charlie Raymo introduced me to oral sex in a pickup truck.

834 I'm not sure why I am weighing in to the bizareness of this conversation, but I've heard shower sex is actually kind of worthless/overrated.

Posted by: Tickled Pink at May 13, 2017 01:51 AM (smD62)


Hot tub sex is definitely more stable, as long as you keep the water level low enough not to splash all over the floor.

But scoopgate or whatever the flavor of the day is.

847 Is this a normal teenage boy thing-using the "F" word for everything.? F-"I can't find my running socks ". F-"The eggs are balanced precariously in the fridge" F-Stop holding onto the seat when i drive." It is so annoying!

848 I can't see how liberals can wrap their brain into illogical knots. There a whole bunch of them that think Trump is gong to be impeached and removed from office over Russia gate and somehow magically will take her rightful place as President.

They deep down truly believe this is going to happen. It is a disease.

It's a normal inclination but you have to nip it in the bud. I told my boys you can think it but don't you dare say it around us. I can curse up a storm but have never done it around our kids. The penalties are severe around here.

Surgeon General's Warning: It depends on the amount of activity a man engages in during the day and how often that person masturbates.

Yes, that is annoying. He never did that, but I may start charging him a quarter everytime he says the f word.
