5 Hola Hordelings.

Watching "Ant-Man" as a bit of fun to fortify myself for a trip to the dreaded shopping mall later on.

Love Paul Rudd, and love the D List superheroes so much more than the A Listers.

7 World's oldest Twinkie turns 40

Rather than not rotting or growing mold because it's EeeEeeEvil Chemicals, its more likely that putting it in the open air simply allowed it to dry out like jerky. Dried out, it's unlikely to be a medium for mold or rot.

13 So another "study" done simply by asking people questions. When I worked in a department like QA it was widely known that an inspection done via "interview" was almost worthless unless the study was intended to find opinions only.


And they left out the most widely known phenomena related to beer. . .

16 I remember the old SPY Magazine doing Twinkie stuff like leaving one dunked in a glass of water for a week, or throwing one off a high-rise, to see what, if anything, could destroy a Twinkie.

(As I recall, the one left in water eventually leaked the white stuff out of the middle but held its shape, and the one thrown off a roof was slightly mashed but not too worse for the wear.)

21 Probably my favorite prog meme of the last few days is that Brexit won because the Remain side "didn't have the right messengers" and "didn't do a good job of making their case."

It's exactly what we heard from conservative elites for years. It's not the message people are rejecting, it's the messenger.

There's a lesson in there somewhere that I may be able to suss out after another cup of coffee.

And we're picking wild strawberries this afternoon, for jam. Crawling around in a field, getting eaten alive by skeeters, in 90 degree heat. On the plus side, wild strawberry jam is one of the tastiest things ever, and we'll get a year's worth out of one afternoon's work.

Wish we could just go now while it's still relatively cool but I foolishly volunteered to work some OT from home this morning.

42 Seeing as Britain will be exiting the EU and ending the migrant influx into their country the other EU countries will now be the sole "beneficiary" off all of those muslims from the Middle East and Northern Africa so it really should be seen as a win for the EU.

What could possibly go wrong with unlimited migration of Muslims into Western Secular Democracies with zero efforts at assimilation of the migrants themselves?

Ultrasonic mouse repeller, repels mice ultrasonically. Available at all home improvement outlets. For only $39.95 plus tax, you too can have a house free of rodent pests.

Works repelling mosquitos also. No need to keep the TV on all night.

And the larger size Ultrasonic Dog collar keeps your pet from wandering the neighborhood and keeps wolves away from your door. See store for details.

47 In the search for a replacement for the phrase "ruling elites" may I humbly submit "evil pieces of shit"?

Let's try it out in a test sentence: "President Obama joins with most of the other evil pieces of shit of the world in his desire to see a new world order prevail." I think it works rather nicely.

78 I watched a little Charlie Rose yesterday and he had several Brit pundits on hand wringing about Brexit. They piled on that it was anti-immigration, against voters voted against voters' best interests, Britain had changed overnight from being Europe's firefighter to 'arsonists' and I swear, I'm not British but if that's a taste of the overwrought hyperbole they have been shreiking about no wonder the voters told them to piss off.

112 I have to disagree with Vic WRT to his VNN report about the Orlando shooter and the FBI report on him. This whole story about the shooter being the Ghey was just a bit too contrived from the start. Occam's Razor, boys and girls, Occam's Razor.

It was just too convenient for the proggie d-bags to start pushing this story of the shooter being a "poor, put upon Person of Gayness who went off the deep end and HAD AN E-VIL BLACK GUN, SO BAN ALL GUNS", rather than the much simpler explanation that it was yet another blood thirsty Muslim deciding to kill a bunch of American infidels, in this case gays, all while The Dear Leader is importing thousands more Muslims to our shores.

Most likely the FBI interviewed this rump ranger and determined he was spouting BS. One thing I learned long ago is that you don't have to beat the bushes long to find some gay boy who will claim You-Name-It was gay just because, even when it was provable he had never been in the same state as You-Name-It. Seen it done...

If you read what I said closely I didn't say whether he was really gay or not. I was disputing the AG scrunt saying there was NO EVIDENCE he was gay when there was someone who claimed to have had gay sex with him.

Re Will, IIRC way back he posed a really great question or two for judicial nominees:

Q1 Can you name one article you use in everyday life that does not have some form of government regulation imposed on its production, sale, use, and/or disposal?

Q2 Can you explain why this level of government regulation is beneficial to citizens?

143 IMHO, George Will is a man with a sense of decorum stuck in pre-WWII era.

So, he's probably a decent man with decent morals, and if the country were filled with his sort it would be better than it is now.

He's also an elitist and a jackass, and not a principled conservative, so that makes him perfect for a round-table of elitist jackass non-conservatives.

I don't know if it's pro government, I haven't paid any attention to George Will in years. What I have seen though, from others of his ilk, is this almost religious adherence to the illegal immigrant notion they have.


It's like, in their minds, they've come up with this secret solution to all our woes, and it involves importing large swaths of swarthy mexicans.


I really can't make sense of it, unless this IS a racist concept, of white elites controlling brown near-slave labor, and making oodles of cash from it.
