15 I've allowed my kids to experiment with weird haircuts and dye jobs, but I've got a firm rule: no tattoos. When you're a legal adult living on your own, I can't stop you, but until then no tattoos.

And for God's sake, don't get a dumb one. No bullshit New Age greeting-card quotes, no pretend-Maori designs, no Chinese or Arabic characters unless you speak the language, no goddamned cartoon characters, no product logos, no political slogans, and no "occult" symbols.

23 Both the larger weed-scented college town south of me and the heroin-blighted county seat north of me had "Women's Marches" today. Pussy hats in evidence. (Don't they know that NOT ALL WOMEN HAVE VAGINAS?! TRANSPHOBIC BIGOTS!)

As is always the case with these lefty religious observances, the message was muddled and vague. Pussy hats, Black Lives Matter signs, anti-Trump signs, gays with rainbow banners because gays love prancing around in public with rainbow banners, anarchists, Marxists, Muslims . . .

If an event is about everything then it's not really about anything, is it? They just love the ritual of protesting. It's Mass for Liberals.

24 well, the tramp stamp is a pretty useful way to communicate and save everyone a lot of time. Instead of plying her with drinks in the bar all night you can simply suggest you get a bottle of something really good you can share on the trunk of your car, or hers.

37 Willowed, concerning Trump's Women's March tweet earlier today.

Trump is a master at carefully calibrating to elicit the most outrage at his opposition. This was perfect - if he would have done his usual blustery Sad! type of tweet, they would have rolled their eyes and ignored it with a "Yeah, he's an asshole".

With *this* however, all they can do is seethe, knowing he's doing it just to troll them. And they can't help themselves - it's been nothing but twitter histrionics and mumbling to themselves "What an asshole."

55 When enough D Senators realize they're vulnerable to a 2018 attack that they don't care about their own states people (especially legal minorities), and are putting illegals first, because they're in thrall to Schmuck Schumer, they'll sue for peace. I'd say a week.

Schumer now knows that he fucked up, and may be collateral damage, so he'll fight to drag it out. He may lose his leadership position over this.

Even Kasie Hunt at MSNBC has figured out that Schumer is lying about his back and forth with Trump about the wall in their meeting. Schumer offered Trump $1.6B when he knew Trump wanted at least $18B, which was an insult that blew up negotiations. Schumer is now deflecting and lying about this.

Schumer can't let Trump get a wall, else his Brooklyn home will get surrounded by insane Lefties until the end of time.

So Schumer will be either out or weakened.

Which fits with Trump's war gaming.

162 Don't think there's much doubt this is a big loser for Dems, that in fact it's a "dream" come true for GOP (potentially). Some doubt, but very little, just the usual CYA required on all forecasts involving human affairs.


I've been begging for this to happen for a while, or something like it.


But how it is exploited by Trump and the GOP is key. Hard to completely blow it, but at this point, failure to get maximum results is unacceptable (that's how bad the situation is).


The vulnerable D senators simply cannot die on this hill. Yesterday 5 of them voted for the CR, the first crack in the wall since Trump was inaugurated. Just the beginning, properly handled.


One thing, though: I concur (as in have said it before I saw it) with a GOP congresscritter who last week tweeted that Trump needs to get *everything* he needs in his first term, in exchange for some kind of DACA. The Dems will not go along with *anything* immigration-related, after that. If the mid-terms give the GOP 60 votes, or 58ish and a few terrified Dem survivors, then there may be action prior to 2020. Not otherwise. Period.


Cannot believe Trump and Co. don't understand this.


Hope the shutdown continues for a while (don't think it will).

And Trump's mentioned chain/lottery migration ending as part of any deal. Alter the deal further, Darth Trump - get the guts of RAISE in there, make it your baseline. Dems balk, run against them on it, in House and Senate. Trump is going to *live* in certain states and districts starting this summer, I'll bet.

228 If I had to choose between alcohol (a poisonous solvent, even if occasionally tasty) and THC (a psychoactive chemical that fits into cannabinoid receptors), I go with THC. I rarely drink these days as it is. After a long week of real property litigation -- defending California real property owners from Marxisms/Maoism -- I love a potent edible, writing and playing music on my keyboards, reading WW2 books, eating a cobb salad, and getting intimate with my girlfriend. Alcohol doesn't remotely have the same appeal to me. I'm 50, successful, have my stuff together, pay a shitload of taxes, and you can just leave me alone thank you.

Maybe I'm the only one here who enjoys THC; so be it.

Most are sympathetic and in agreement with me when I say the dog has no place being in a place where fresh food is being sold. Some go right away to confront the scammer.

Some tell me that HQ has instructed them they can do nothing. To those, I say I am leaving the store and won't return, will tell everyone I know about the filthy situation, and that I will report them to the county.

I ask why, if they did not allow this five years ago, they allow it now. I ask why their food handlers wear gloves and hair nets.

My experience with "grass" has been limited. Mostly skunk-weed from the '80s. Did some edibles once, not too long ago. it was weird. I may consider another delivery device. Or not. I have a problem with the whole legality aspect. Sure, it's totes cool in Colorado, but there is that pesky federal law. Do I agree? No. Not at all. Pot should be legal, or at least decriminalized. But, this kind of ambiguity is just the kind of thing that would prevent from legally obtaining the AR I want. So, booze it is.

The older he got, the muddier the tats got until all you could see was a collage of red and blue splotches. People tell me today's inks are much more stable, but I just can't do it. Besides, when getting a tattoo was once a sign of rebellion, these days, not having a tattoo shows you're a non-conformist.

One of the treatments for a large Kidney Stone is called an Urethascopy. They knock you out, then stick a long tube up the business end into your bladder. The tube has a camera, a laser to bust up the stone and a little basket to pick up the pieces. Unfortunately, there is still some "sand" that has to be expelled. To do that, a stent is installed that dips in the bladder and almost peeks out of your business end. For about three weeks, you have to piss all the time and it looks like Cherry Kool aid.

Also unfortunately, when it's time for the stent to be removed, they don't knock you out. You lay on a big table that has a big bar suspended from the ceiling. The doc comes in, sticks the tube with the camera and a claw on it up your business, finds the end of the stent, grabs ahold of it...says you better grab that bar above your head. He then puts one foot against the side of the table and Yanks the tube with the camera and the claw out of your business and low and behold, there's a 10 inch straw with a 2 inch bend in it.

Do you yell and scream when he Yanks it out... you're damn straight.

Posted by: Infidel at January




Get a male, yellow tabby kitten from a known line of VERY LARGE yellow tabby cats.

Get said kitten neutered as early as the vet advises. Not only will it not spray upon reaching maturity, but it'll grow into one of the mellowest, funnest, lovingist companions you could ever imagine.

And the average Yellow Tabby is an ABOVE average cat, in terms of intelligence, affection for humans, and especially, being very "into" their owner/alpha.

My late, beloved Harley would sit on command, meet me at the door while wagging his Golden Retriever grade tail, and wanting to get some dogly face-licks in, in the bargain.

And besides. A fifteen to twenty pound yellow male tabby is also one bad ass mo-fo of a cat.

They're imposing, impressive, imperial and imperious. That's on their BAD days. Which tend to be few.

Good days are lap fulla yella mushball of purring love. Small tiger following you room to room, just to see what'cha up to. Hopping on the bathroom counter when you shave, looking to drink from the faucet.

While dogs DO love you unconditionally, cats have conditions, standards and expectations.

Living up to them, makes one a better person.

315 Re. the "to coin a phrase" thing in the sidebar, I think it's because people began using it sarcastically for shopworn phrases and idiots began to think that it meant the opposite of its true meaning. Also maybe from "neologism" becoming a popular word to describe new words or phrases especially tied into computer/social media/I.T.-related items being used instead of the old "to coin a phrase" usage.

It bugs me too like the 1980's (IIRC) superseding of "I couldn't care less" that was in common usage in the NE and here before then being overtaken by "I could care less" that I think is a West Coast usage. I associate it with Valley Girl speak coming onto the scene then although that might not be its original source.

346 313 Jim -- I had one of those big yellow cats. Every time I took him out of his carrier at the vet's, everyone involved would ooh and aah and say that he was the tallest cat any of them had ever seen. I always said I had him fixed at least a month too early because he was so mellow, he was damn near comatose. My next door neighbor claimed to hate cats, but every morning Boo banged on her front door, she would let him in, he would inspect her whole apartment, then he'd go to the door to be let out again. Any time anyone parked on our block and left the window open, he'd hop in for a nap. I'm surprised nobody called the cops on me for trying to steal their vehicle. In the summer, I'd drive about a block, then have to stop to let him out because I hadn't noticed him sleeping in the back. One time, I had to rescue him from a load of trash just about to be hauled off to the dump. He loved snow and would stretch his front legs out and play snow plow. Unfortunately, he did the same thing to a row of chrysanthemums I planted one spring. Sad to say, I had to put him down when he was only eight because of renal failure. He was a real character.

Harley passed away in my arms in December of 2009. He's buried outside of my home-office window. He just almost made 14 years old.

Best. Cat. Ever.

The breed tends towards the characteristics, as described, too.

Given Infidel's wish for a mellow companion, I threw my $0.02 worth of opinion & recommendation onto the table.

I love the pair o' cats that now grace this hacienda. But they're not in the Yellow Tabby category of companion.

Also helps with that pesky 'Lesbian Lost Tampon' smell, although that odor can attract Durian Sodomizers, so you may need to scatter black pepper and toe-poppers around your ornamental fruits.

Pro tip: Ornament fruits do best when dressed up as jockeys and placed on lawns.

358 A few years ago I met an old guy who had a tat on his arm that had become all smeared so you couldn't see it very well. I asked him if it was a Marine tat, and he said, no, it was a Hell's Angel's tat. I kind of did a double take and he explained that he had been an undercover cop and it was part of his cover. Hmm, OK.

1. Yes, they tend to be. But, long hair Maine Coon / American Shorthair type Yellow Tabby.

They both shed, but the long hair is more difficult to help the cat maintain, w/ brushing & a couple baths a year.

2. Several ways. First, is to have a sit down with your local no-kill shelter, let them know what you're looking for, and be first on the list of people they call when one of those kittens arrives at their facility. Which, is *often*.

Second, as your veterinarian as to a REPUTABLE breeder or show cat person, who can get you introduced to the better breeders in your area.

An extension of "Second", would be to attend a local Cat Show, find the big yellow tabby entrants, and begin some conversations.

Avoid Craigslist. Too many puppy n' kitten mills there. And they LIE about it.

Several of the R's voted for it, and several D's voted against, perhaps in an attempt to keep it from happening. If the R's were smart, which is always in question, they would probably be more than happy to see the government close down so the Dummycrats could be shown for what they are. Could be a coordinated trap snapping shut in their smug little faces, if they were trying to get in PDJT's face without actually going all the way. IOW, just the tip but ... oooops!

Maine Coons are large, and have very serious attitudes and loads of dignity. They are also quite loveable and very very smart.

They tend to be very vocal, and a friend claims his was nearly verbal.
I would not call them dog-like since that desire to please is never there. But they are very self contained and they appear to have "swagger" genetically encoded.

I found out that for me Coon cats don't trigger my cat allergies. Some cats do, and others don't.

If I ever got a dog it would have to by one of the hypoallergenic ones, like poodles, but it's good to know that an M.C. might be okay too.

Yes. We had a Maine Coon (Whitey), I think. It was pure white, was larger than typical, and had the large tufts of hair in the paws and ears. It was very vocal, chirping all the time, and would come to greet visitors like a dog.
In fact, it looked exactly like the "Fuck that in particular" cat.

Mama said there'd be days like this. So after wandering around the house with 20#s of blankets, plus an upchuck basket and an achin' bod, I went to sleep. And woke up chill-free and fever-free.

It's not anything I did; it's what my immune system did all on its own. Surprised the fuck outa me. It's a full day later, and there's still some cold sniffles, but nothing else.

---------------------

It's because the setting is more or less a straight-up Dungeons and Dragons setting. The default setting for the latter is a vaguely Middle Ages pre-gunpowder Europe, but with polytheistic religions. The original Lodoss story came from a series of pencil and paper RPG sessions that used that as the basis of the setting that the group was playing in.

540 Lodoss was one group's home brew of Dungeons and Dragons. Which gave everyone who had watched the 13 OVA Lodoss a bad head cramp when Legend of Crystania came out. Crystania was based off the real game and what happened there so it included things that got dropped or changed for the OVA series. Crystania only makes continuity sense once Record of Lodoss War: Legend of the Heroic Knight TV series is watched.

---------------------------

To add, since monotheistic religions seem to be anathema to your typical fantasy RPG game, the alternative to the polytheistic approach is something like The Light that the human kingdoms worship in Warcraft. The light is a sort of ill-defined holy energy. It's not entirely clear what it is or how it works, only that it exists and that specially trained faithful can channel it. The draenei worship it as well, and a crystalline race called the Naaru can use it in various ways.

With one notable exception, the rest of Azeroth's deities are a mixed bag of what are basically powerful spirits, demons, elder gods, and powerful aliens. The sole exception to this is the chief Night Elf goddess, Elune. It's not entirely clear just what Elune is (which is unusual, given how thorough Blizzard has been in defining all of the other deities) except that she's quite possibly the single most powerful being within the setting.

In my bowling community, I've known several DS bowlers. Every one has been a nice person just trying to do the best they can in a world that sometimes can be confusing to them. Sometimes I'm amazed at the things that they find incredible that you and I would take for granted. I read that Iceland had passed a law saying that it was OK to abort a baby that would test for DS. I can't believe how inhumane that kind of attitude is. They have a LIFE! They may not be like us, but they still want to work, they want to love, they want to LIVE! They are not any different than us normal folk. Give them the gift of life.

544 @540 Crystania only makes continuity sense once Record of Lodoss War: Legend of the Heroic Knight TV series is watched.
-----------------------

Unfortunately, imo, Heroic Knight stopped being enjoyable when the second party got introduced.

Never seen Crystania. I might watch it if I ever stumble across it. But I'm not really keeping an eye out for it.

545 Anna: what's the best way to watch the series? Some say watch the first 8 eps of the 1990 series and then jump into Legend of the Heroic Knight midway through... but HOW midway? start with episode 9 of that?

Posted by: boulder terlit hobo at January 21, 2018 01:44 AM (6FqZa)

546 In Heroic Knight, Ashram and Pirotess with their followers sail away.

Crystania at the very end is it revealed the female elf Cher is really Pirotess and she is trying to free Ashram who sold his own body to a god of the new island so that his people could have a place to live.

-----------------------

IIRC (and it's been a long time since I watched it), Heroic Knight starts after the party has already been assembled. You could probably watch the original series up through the end of the war, and then just jump right into Heroic Knight. IIRC, Heroic Knight opens with the war, so you'd get some overlap. But the details of the war are slightly different between the two series. So it'd give you a chance to get introduced to the characters as they're portrayed in Heroic Knight.

550 In Heroic Knight some time has passed since Parn's party did their great service. Because Slayn and Leila have a daughter named Neece who seems about 12 or so. But yes the war against Marmo continues until the end of Heroic Knight.

In Heroic Knight, Parn and Deederit are heroes. But they owe allegiance to no one and go about trying to make things better all across the island. Which is how they interact with the young knight Spark and his very mixed party.

Can't remember - does Spark get introduced before Heroic Knight shifts to him?

IIRC, the shift to Spark is the moment when I started to dislike Heroic Knight. I liked the new supporting party members, but not the new leads. Neece in particular bugged me. And her extremely young age didn't help.

Justice Idea is about 4000 to 5000 years old that one man wronged by another could as an authority to right his damage.

Would love Trump to announce that his economic advisors have enacted a plan to bring spending in line with revenues so that no further budget limits need to be increased, and while the government shutdown will continue, within 7 days -- with a series of reduction of force within government of 50% across the board -- revenue will meet outlays.

No further negotiations are required.

652 Fox's opening paragraph on the Democrat's shutdown:


Day One of a government shutdown, filled with increasingly angry finger pointing from both Democrats and Republicans, on Saturday appeared to produce little in terms of a potential solution for the impasse on how to fund the government.


This shutdown is is totally owned by the Democrats trying to force DACA amnesty through congress and the President. Trump had told Chump Schumer repeatedly what his conditions for OKing DACA amnesty were but Schumer would not budge. But the MFM will spout the Democrat Party line and the Democrats do what they normally do; lie. But weekend Fox is even more liberal than weekday Fox and they mention none of this.

669 Itsa quiet sunday morning. Too quiet. The weather patterns are spring like with warm gulf air moving north instead of the arctic cold air moving south.

This will bring thunderstorms and tornados. The quiet is an illusion as 3 million federal government employees are ordered confined to their homes. This will not end well. It will be a turbulent spring as bureaucratic resentment boils over and warmer weather bring anti government protesters to the streets.

FEMA foot dragging will make clean up of tornado damage more difficult. Hospitals will turn away the injured as the flow of federal money ends.

One night I was walking on the valley floor road, with some coyotes yipping in the front. Not close. Then to my right, more yipping, closer. Finally, I heard a group howling pretty close to the left. A moment later I heard claws scraping on the road directly behind.

Hand in pocket to get my knife, steadying my flashlight, I whirled around.

It was Independence, the friendly neighborhood Bucovina Shepherd dog. She was making sure I was protected.

Nice language there, honey, or the daughter or granddaughters of the feminist brain trust -three 15 year old girls holding a signing saying, "We're the granddaughters of the witches you didn't burn in Salem.

And since it's what the American people want-

Yes! It will involve tits. Glorious tits. The Best Tits you've ever seen.


There once was a girl from Poughkeepsie
With a rare form of grand epilepsy
She often had fits
Which scattered her wits
So, she called her tits Tipsy and Flipsy


There! A great American ending for a Great American limerick.


Wonderful. An ending like you've never seen before.

897 Seems like the troops can still watch AFN

It's been all over Facebook that AFN is down. However, the USO is getting the word out that they will have football on their screens. That said, there are a lot of bases that are not near a USO.

Also, I don't know how important AFN is these days. Most bases I know of have cable with a limited number of channels. I can only assume it got better since I left Korea in 99. Also, a lot of folks have Kodi boxes.

898 Maine Coons don't have a very long lifespan.
Brighter lights burn out faster. My male Russian Blue, Chamberlain, died
a few months ago at 19 years of age.

All of our Maine Coons over the years have lived, on average, 18 years. Of course, they were ALL indoor cats and spoiled rotten. And all female and fixed. We bred Maine Coons for a few years back in the 90's and wound up keeping one from each litter eventually having Maine Coons at one time gracing our residence. We have one 18 pound female now, 6 years old, and one calico short hair. They rule the house for sure! The Maine Coons we had were all purebred with papers tracing their lineage. They are a wonderful breed.

899 Correction to my post @897. I'm reading now that AFN will be broadcasting the NFL games, not that that matters to me. First, I am not overseas, and last, I will not be watching anyway. I've been done with them for almost two seasons.
