An ONT To Hang Your Hat On

Happy Thursday Horde! Have any of y'all started to do any Christmas-y stuff? We have the tree up, and last night we went to see The Chosen: The Messengers. The actual episode was good, and I liked the bits on the different names of God, but the rest of it was contemporary Christmas carols, which are not really my thing. I like my carols traditional. The family that sang How great thu art knocked it out of the park, but then again, that's not really a carol.

Remember Pearl Harbor


This week marked the 80th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. While everybody knows the horrors of the holocaust, the Japanese have largely escaped public censure for their equally horrific and brutal march through the south Pacific. Here's one such tale.

Bangka Island: The WW2 massacre and a 'truth too awful to speak'

The Japanese raped a group of Australian nurses before machine gunning them. It's a good article, until it veers into wokism at the end. While patting itself on the back about just how “serious” we are about sexual assault these days, it does also note earlier that committing a rape was a hanging offense in Australia until 1955. You want serious? Get off social media and get to work bringing that back. I'd be just fine with the punishment for rape being to dance on air.

Melbourne Woman Sets Herself On Fire Inside Car With Sign Saying: “NO ONE CARES, MANDATES ARE KILLING US”

Shades of Thích Quang Duc, and also done in protest of an overreaching authoritarian government. Same act, same reason. If you want to know how I know that the whole “If it saves just one life” rational for all of this COVID related shit is a lie, all you need to do is look at suicides, mental health breakdowns, drug overdoses and spikes in alcoholism. They outnumber actual COVID deaths by a factor of, what, 5? 10? I wouldn't be surprised if it's more than that.

Food!


We Ate Fried Chicken Priced At $16.95 To $500 To See Which One Was The Most Worth It

Fried chicken may be the perfect food. If I was forced to choose one food to eat for the rest of my life, fried chicken would definitely be one of the final choices on the list. That said, $500 for a fried chicken is insane, no matter how good it is. Of course, it might be better to pay $500 for a chicken rather than whatever this is:

GA Mom Says Rittenhouse’s “Bad” Parents Are To Blame; She Is Then Killed By Her Own Son On Thanksgiving

I know there are some on the right who are getting a schadenboner about this story, and to them I say: Stop it. Just cut it the fuck out. This is a tragedy, no matter what brain dead thing she might have said about Rittenhouse. Our job is to beat the left, not become them. Doing whatever it takes to beat the commies? Fine, all's fair in war, and this is definitely a war. But reveling over someone's murder just because they said something stupid? Include me out.

42 The left-wing government of New Zealand has come up with a nanny-state proposal so extreme, so outrageous, I can't believe that the State of Oregon didn't come up with it first.

They are proposing a new law that says that people aged 14 and under in New Zealand will not allowed to legally purchase tobacco - ever.

The way it works is if the law goes into effect in 2022, 14 and younger can't buy tobacco. In 2023, 15 and younger. In 2024, 16 and younger, and so on. In 2073, only people older than 75 will be allowed to legally purchase tobacco.

Hey, prohibition has always worked before!

48 The Japanese got off incredibly lightly for how much mayhem they got up to in China and the Pacific. They killed at least 20 million Chinese and a couple million assorted other civilians and suffered maybe a million soldiers and a million civilians killed. Hardly seems fair.

The Germans also got off lightly. They killed about 45 million people, civilians and soldiers combined, and suffered 4.5 million soldiers and about a million civilians killed.
Again, hardly seems fair.

I guess it just goes to show the world how superior morally the Allies were to the Axis (with the exception of the USSR basically starting WW2 by helping out the Germans with Poland). After suffering that many deaths at the hands of the Nazis and Japanese, it's actually surprising those two countries didn't have a Hell of a lot more of their citizens massacred after they surrendered. Rough justice that would have been in many eyes.

Pulling a horse trailer, truck stops are often the nice option for easy access and most are friendly to the RV and trailer pulling crowd as well as to actual truckers. Flying J is the exception in my travels. I've never seen a Buc-ees. There aint enough traffic for any fuel/convenience chain with a big enough lot to handle trucks to exclude truckers in the hinterlands where I drive. They'd go broke.

84 And this is why the COVID NAZIs get away with their policies. Because people are afraid of what other people might think of them if they go against the policies. The last straw *should* have been mandating masks on kids in school. Not waiting around "hoping" that NAZIs would come to their senses. What a weak-minded people we have become in America.

"I am beyond furious, especially knowing children are low-risk," they continued. "Governor Brown maskless in DC this weekend was the last straw. We've been patient with all of the policies here in Portland in hopes of not being ostracized within the community, but this is the last straw."

"I will be picking my child up to have lunch at home," they added.


They should be picking up their child to remove them from the school for good.

Good for you. We all can keep in mind that whether parenting is good, middlin', or poor, a child may end up a mess. Sometimes kids take a wrong path and we don't know why. I've never known anyone whose kid killed them, but I have known people whose kids committed felonies, became addicts, committed suicide, or cut their parents out of their lives.

93 Religious question for the Horde.

Okay, so somewhere in the Bible it's says something like there are is male or female in heaven. Which sucks cuz that means there's no, ya know...*gestures and whistles*

But given that a question popped into my mind.

Is there coffee in heaven?

The lack of *gestures and whistles* isn't a big deal because I'm not getting any of that anyway so nothing changes but if there's no coffee in heaven then I'm going to have a serious problem. I would like to think that somewhere up there in the Lawd's Eternal Kitchen is a tin can containing his finest bean.

97 I saw Christmas with the Chosen last weekend. I have mixed feeling about it, for sure. I wish I had known going in that at least half of it (the first half) was music by contemporary artists. It wasn't bad by any means, and it was respectful, but modern Christian music is not my thing. They did have some good monologues interspersed between the songs, which I liked better than the music.

The actual part about the nativity was well done, as I would expect from The Chosen, but I was really left wanting more. It covered a very small portion of the story. My kids attended and they were a bit bored, which was kind of a bummer.

QDP's meltdowns were on the Quick Hits thread, just before the Cafe. Glorious in their foam-flecked, spittle-spewing rage and insanity. Alas, when whichever COB dropped the guillotine blade on QD's hash, it also dropped on all of his posts. Whether just in that thread or going back years in the archives, I do not know.

Pity that thread wasn't preserved in it's original form though. It was a Hillary-esque "Master's Class" in LOSING IT right in the middle of the food court at the mall. I did put a bow on it at post (now) 323, but alas, it went up after the smoke was let out of the box.

143 The WW2 Japanese culture was not like anything the West could understand. It was a total disgrace to quit or be captured...closest simile to the standard Western male culture of the era I can come up with would be doing public gay stuff in front of your peers. So if they happened to end up captured they thought they were dead..this led them to treat the prisoners they captured the same way. The reason Germany and Japan weren't treated that badly after the war was the immediate danger of the Soviet Union. The West didn't want them going Communist and ten years after the war ended let them rearm to be more help. I do believe the current elite society revamp push began after the Soviets imploded. I think the vague and never really explained "New World Order" Bush Sr. kept babbling about was code for the elites in the know.

155 I'll resist the temptation to go on a science versus religion rant.

Suffice to say, I know some scientists that find there is nothing unique about life, that it's all simply a matter of a convergence of various factors, bound to happen.

On this we disagree. The difference between life and lifeless is the immortal God. The man who has studied in earnest to learn the most about our Creator is the man that has come closest to truth.

For some, it's through a microscope, though they are often unable to admit or understand on a conscious level that this is Who their quest ultimately seeks. For others, its through worship and prayer.

I would suggest using RIG grease in addition on all metal surfaces and inside the bore. It is a non-solidifying grease that serves the same purpose as cosmolene.

You can also get vci paper and put it inside regular archival type plastic bags to the same effect.

I think that she probably is partially to blame. One of the major differences between us and the progs is their decision to elevate delusion over reality. And they can't allow us to live in reality. We must use the bullshit pronouns and be taxed to defeat global warming. Once you become untethered from reality, everything is on the table. That doesn't end well.

It's no different than the type of churchgoers who let you know they're so much better than everyone else because they spend an hour a week in a special building, even though what's said in that building obviously never seeps into their thick skulls. If they want sympathy when things go sideways, start being sympathetic. Otherwise, they can die in a fire.

Because, generally, a second jury is not going to hold perjury by a previously-found-guilty defendant against him. If he had lied well enough to be found guilty, maybe. This also goes for parents who lie for their guilty children. You expect them to lie, and usually think you would do the same thing in their place.

239 If I ever find myself as a guest of the State and they said they are gotta take me out, for my last meal I honestly think I'd ask for one bite of many things.

Not an entire perfectly grilled steak, for example, but only one bite. It would be delicious and then move on to one bite of something else equally delicious. And so on. After the first bite, of anything, no matter how well prepared, there would be diminishing returns.

YMMV

Yep, knew a guy who was assigned one of those Fox vehicles. They had a string of M8 alarms out. They had a report of mortar shells and telltale smoke clouds. Then the M8s went off sequentially in the direction of the wind.

They filed the report, and somewhere up higher came to visit, said not only was the report incorrect, but he had to destroy his notes.

You're allowed to put on a defense, as long as your testimony can't be factually rebutted you're never going to get charged with perjury. Besides if you prosecuted for every lie, a lot of the initial pleads and plea bargains would be considered perjury.

Posted by: Billy Ray Valentine at December 09, 2021 11:05 PM (4thlk)

253 The optimal strategy is tit-for-tat.

In the fight, yes, absolutely. We should call and raise them on every level, and escalate all the way to thermonuclear war if that's what it takes to beat them. I love what Kyle did in Kenosha, shooting down rioting commies is always a day well spent in my book, and I'll order a drink to celebrate (probably a Rittenhouse, that's a chaser and 3 shots) while joking about how well he disarmed the third guy all night long.

Outside the fight, however, celebrating a murder, dancing on the grave of someone simply because they held different political beliefs than you - held them mind you, not acted out on them, that's the line - is not just crass and rude, it's evil and I firmly believe it corrodes the soul.

That's my choice, ymmv.

There is a cinder block shack on the east side of the road just north of Ponotoc. It's amazing. Ethereal. Simply the best fried chicken you will ever have in your life. Correct salt and seasoning. The fry is perfect. Not overly crispy but not too tender----just perfect. Ponotoc is just south of Tupelo and north of Houston MS.

278 @58 Weird that no one - NO ONE - ever talks about the Japanese occupation of Korea in 1910.

----

There's a Korean TV series - available on Netflix - called 'Mr. Sunshine' - that's set both during the lead-up to it, and after it happens. One of the main characters is a Korean who spent much of his life in the US, and has returned back to the country as one of the commanding officers in a fictional American military mission (note, however, that the American attack at the very start of the series really did happen, and is depicted more or less accurately).

The real problem, though, is that the Japanese occupation of Korea wasn't a military takeover. It was peaceful, and done through diplomatic means. The reigning dynast's government basically decided (over his objections) to make the country a part of Japan. This raises all sorts of ugly questions when you start investigating exactly what happened in Korea shortly after the Turn of the Century. Because the people responsible for the Japanese taking control in Korea... were the people in power in Korea. The modern Koreans - unsurprisingly - find that rather awkward and embarrassing.

300 There's all kinds of stuff that goes on in the military in battle zones.

There's usually only two groups of people; the enemy and your unit.

This limits the stories that can get out. The enemy stories you can claim are lies and laugh. Your unit's stories they can threaten or actually lock those up repeating the story.

This is why martial law is so problematic. They can do anything as there are no limits and no one to stop it or repeat to someone else what happpened.

Yeah, people sometimes really rub each other the wrong way. If a popular regular/cob gets sick of your shit, you can get banned for some otherwise routine pissing match. I expect it'll happen to me eventually. Not a big deal, whenever it happens. Anyway, I didn't mind Steve. Weird guy, but seemed like a good egg.

I think it was an accumulation of issues over time with some individuals rather than the final meltdown. People react to time outs in three ways--accept it and carry on as learning a lesson, fade away, or fight it out with those they blame.

323 Wow. Alissa Azar, a pro-Assad Syrian immigrant who is a well-known Antifa "journalist", on June 18th during an Antifa riot, bear-maced an unarmed person, and was immediately clocked by a defending Proud Boy.

Steve Inman made a video of this which I think has been posted here, but I can't find it at the moment.

Well, little Alissa now has more problems - she's just been charged by a grand jury with felony rioting, use of tear gas/mace, and other charges, and is being arraigned today.

Worse, she didn't do this in Portland, but in an adjoining suburban county. So, she gets a non-Soros DA, a suburban judge, and a suburban jury. Oops.

336 I might be done with my sister. I was talking about Abigail Shrier's book and explaining how girls who don't fit in are really vulnerable to the crap the trans lobby pushes, and mentioned I'd struggled with not being like other girls myself (I even wondered, when I learned in freshman biology in high school that it's possible to be XY but appear completely female if the Y chromosome never does its thing, whether that explained me - was I actually a man genetically?) and that it took me a long time to get to where I fully accepted myself as a woman. And it's even harder today with how much more rigid gender roles have gotten, now that the message is no longer "girls can like boy stuff too" but is instead "if you like boy stuff you should mutilate yourself". She called me disgusting and ended the conversation.

(She may also have been suffering some reading comprehension challenges this morning, as she inquired whether Abigail Shrier was a tranny. Um...no.)

You can accept your fate, come back in, hat in hand, and learn from your mistake.

Or you can come back in keep getting drunk and keep bringing up the time the bartender cut you off until they ban you from the premises permanently.

It all depends on how much you like drinking there, as to which path you take.

There was no drama, just a bunch of people picking on Steve. He tried to defend himself, nothing nasty, people continued to show how deep and clever they are by picking on him some more and I guess he was banned. That is what it looked like to yours truly.

396 I'm not my sister's biggest fan anyway. My dad has been very sick for basically 3-4 years now, and my husband has done far more for my parents than my sister has (my favorite was when she told Dad that she was really busy but she could probably squeeze him in...on Father's Day). I can't really see myself staying in touch with her after our parents die.

One of the things I pray for my sons is that they will be close to each other when they grow up.

Well, this lonely person looking for human interaction has an early meeting tomorrow, so I will catch you guys later. A lovely evening to all!

Or you can come back in keep getting drunk and keep bringing up the time the bartender cut you off until they ban you from the premises permanently.
It all depends on how much you like drinking there, as to which path you take.
Posted by: Bitter Clinger at December 09, 2021 11:36 PM (7F9te)


Portland at the turn of the 20th century was known for its bars, and one bar took up an entire block with entrances on each street.
One logger got tossed out for being drunk and disorderly and tried coming back through another door, and the bouncer pitched him out again.
The drunk tried another door and got thrown out a third time, and he staggered to the fourth door where the bouncer, who could see a pattern, was waiting. He put a hand on the drunk's chest and told him to keep out, and the drunk wailed, "Are you bouncing at EVERY joint in this town?"

He ranted and raved for about an hour to *everyone* he worked with, and then stormed out. (this was on a Friday)

So over the weekend he calmed down and realized "hey I really need this job, how do I take it back?" He thought apologizing wouldn't work, he had acted too badly for thought.

Jingle Bell Rock, the original
The 12 Days of Christmas by Bob & Doug McKenzie
Do They Know it's Christmas, Band Aid (Yeah, I know. But the over-the-top Bono line always makes me laugh)
----
As for the rest of them..I know that Christmas songs, the popular secular ones, anyway, are not supposed to be high art or poetry. But I can't get beyond the insipid lyrics. "Christmas comes this time each year." "A child, a child, shivers in the cold, let us bring him silver and gold." " You know Dancer and Prancer et al....but do you recall the most famous reindeer of all?" No, I know all of the obscure names, but not the famous one. And who tells scary ghost stories on Christmas Eve? Grrr.

Usually, your observation here would be entirely correct, and I would agree. Take the old show "Cheers". Norm would walk into the bar, and everyone would yell: "NORRRMM!", and the scripted dialog would have some greetings, some witty conversation, and then the camera would shift to Woody or Cliff or whoever. Every now and then, there'd be a NORM-centric episode, just as there was a Woody episode or other cast member. But mostly, the ensemble and the show had a balance.

Now, picture the guy who played Norm, wanting to be given about 50% of the script lines, and about 70%/75% of the script THEMES being NORM shows. Cheers would've been off the air in a season. Or, the producers would've written the Norm character out of the show altogether. I think the COBS or Mods did that, last night. As mentioned above, QDP admitted to dropping lines into the threads to draw the conversation to his interests, his topics and questions. .. cont.

I did that mostly cause you could set up different pilots names and set different levels of difficulty. So if I didn't feel like getting my azz kicked I'd pick an easier pilot history.

I like that game. It could get boring tho cause they did it in real time and space travel takes lots of TIME. Even at super speeds.

IOW, I wasn't then, and am not now "anti QDP". I am though, anti-Cheers becoming The Norm Show, unless it's a spin-off that I can ignore in it's own time slot. Just FYI, a couple well known folks here have tried to help him via email, but seemingly, to no avail. Add to that his hateful invective towards AOP, Nurse, Whig and others?

2. Don't sock a regular.

There are ways to filter those guys out. Trouble is most people in these groups don't know how or don't believe it matters or think they've already spotted them.

Just read a few biographies of some rabble rousers and how they organized to keep the Gov't informers out. It's a situation that's happened over and over. But these guys are trained so they know how to appeal to whoever's running the group.

In fact some of them are so good they wind up being in control!

The Armenians are a very musical people.

The story goes that Ross Bagdasarian (the guy behind the Chipmunks, who went by "David Seville") spent the last dime the family had on one of those newfangled tape recorders. Mrs. Bagdasarian was reportedly very not amused, but it worked out all right for them in the end. The Bagdasarian family has the IP up for sale for $500 million right now, nearly 65 years later.

Now I'm wondering how much the "Dogs Barking Jingle Bells" dude is worth.

No, it had everything to do with the blog. He was whining because some Iranian woman doctor at the medical facility where he worked had written him up for "sexual harassment". Apparently he was mooning over her beauty to the point that it became discomfiting to her. He got fired. And he posted her name on the blog here.

A lot of the alterative fora that I frequent now has an abundance of these posts, because they don't censor except for actual threats. I'm pretty sure their significant presence is due to some combination of Feds, edgy kids rebelling, and actual Yahtzees, and likely in those relative proportions.

The disturbing thing is that of the non-Feds, how many were driven to this point because of the left calling everything huwite supremacy. Might as well be hung for a sheep as a lamb, or however that saying goes. To the left, feature not bug.

All through hotel there were staggering Knights of Columbus and just before I got to my I got stopped by one and he wanted to talk. After telling him go away he dropped "I bet you don't know who the Knights of Columbus are?" I said they are a social organization tied to the Catholic church and since you didn't stipulated the bet.

I've been playing with my new Christmas present I bought for myself, which came yesterday. It's a Casio G-Shock "atomic" watch, which receives the reference time signal broadcast from Ft. Collins CO, and run by the NIST.

The darn thing can't sync inside the house. Watch says the signal level is good, so it must be noise from all the electronic crap inside. It will sync reliably outside. Go out, point the watch West, and it will sync.

So I bragged to Miley that no one can say that I don't know what time it is now. She asked, "But how do you know the govt. isn't lying to you about what time it is. I don't trust them". She knows how to mess with me.

Glowies are the Feds that are "SO" undercover that they GLOW, and are hence, easily spotted.

It's like they were issued their hemmed khaki shorts, popped collar Polo shirt, Ray Ban glasses, ankle socked tennie wearing "uniforms" at Feebie Issue.

And try as they might, their Ghillie Suits won't fool anyone at a MoMeet, either.

I'm going to repost this as it was quite late last ONT.-
Notes from the Rehab Chronicles: Dear Diary today I rang for a nurse to help me to the bathroom. To my astonishment, the young woman who helped me said,'Well, I'll tell you this, you look like a bad-ass dude, no one is going to mess with you'. Apparently the look that your skull has already been split with a battle ax, and you are still on your feet, is intimidating.

For just a moment, I had a vision of entering the Iron Horse Saloon, and the crowd of bikers separating like the Red Sea. In the next moment, I remembered that I was tottering on the arm of a young woman who could be my granddaughter, just to take a pee.

On a much sadder note. I lost Mike Hammer's Cat He suffered a stroke on Saturday night, an was euthanized on Monday. 20 years together, and I couldn't even be there to say goodbye.

Do I remember that there was talk of defunding WWVB recently?

I compared the results with the Casio and syncing the computer here just tonight. They agree within a fraction of second. Holding the watch next to the time display, the computer jumps to the next second just a noticeable bit faster than the watch.

"time.windows.com" is the default, although you can set it to use NIST servers. So if they're lying about the time, Bill Gates and the govt have their stories straight.

WWV transmits at 5, 10, and 15 mHz. Possibly a few others. They are a frequency standard as well as a time standard.

753 >> could be something wireless is using the same freq. Can the freq be changed?

Not intentionally anywhere near. THe WWVB signal is a long wavelength, 60 kHz signal. But it's vulnerably to electronic and electrical noise, and I think that's what's going on inside the house.

The watch reports good signal inside the house, but always fails to sync with an error. Outside, no problem.

Impound are not necessarily junk. Sure, some are, but others are perfectly serviceable used cars whose owners could not afford to bail them out after being towed by the cops for whatever reason.

777 I had that with a truck someone hit. Insurance junked it. And I bought it for a deduction of the payoff amount from the insurance co.

Because the motor and tranny were both in excellent shape. So I got an identical model same engine same trans that the engine was blown out on and swapped them. Then sold the engined loaner for scrap and drove around for quite a while on the swapped engine.

It was a Chevly LUV truck. Very easy to swap motors.

You know what else is a very accurate time reference? The US grid. While at any instant, the frequency can vary, they go to pains to make sure that such errors are averaged out over the long run, even slightly speeding up or slowly down (just a tiny little bit that wouldn't effect system stability) to make sure that the number of AC cycles over a period is correct.

Thus, over time, synchronous motor driven clocks are very accurate. Not so much short term, but over the long term, they are very accurate on average.

A true talent can stand on stage, and sing a cappella, or accompanied by naught but piano or guitar.

But a Beiber or a Swift, must have a cohort of dancers, backup singers, and electronic autotune or they dare not preform.

Brittney Spears was a Mouseketeer same time as Christina Augulara. Christina spent her post-Mouse years in JAPAN, doing commercials, concerts, forming her craft, all while Spears was doing autotune videos in front of a dozen gay-ass dancers mimicing the "music" she allegedly sang.

Ms. Agulara pisses more talent than Spears down the toilet, with every purge of the bladder. And I don't even LIKE the "pop" style of Christina Agulara. But I do respect her TALENT.

There's an old '60s era wall clock at my folks' house. Thing has been there since before I was born, and is just a fixture. If that clock wasn't there, where it was supposed to be, my whole world would be thrown out of whack.

It's mechanical, with a little PM synchronous motor driving it. The number of revolutions corresponds exactly with the number of AC cycles. It's damn accurate.

Even electronic clock radios and such with a circuit that counts cycles and calibrates will be very accurate over the long term.

I've noticed they put a lot of cheap electronic clocks in things now. Case in point -- electronic thermostats. The one here has battery backup, but is also powered by the 24V control transformer. That clock is a very poor internal circuit. It will be off by minutes over a month.

They could easily put something that counts AC cycles in to sync, but they don't. There's a lot of stuff that's just cheap like that. I've noticed the battery back ups in the clock radios will drift a few seconds over a few hours of a power outage or being unplugged.

Well not here exactly. Nor where I live which is rural Pennsylvania. But still that this many people have been taken in by all this nonsense is just shocking. I knew that the schools were doing a bad job but I did not realize that the parents weren't doing anything about it.

Well, they can't. You can't count what you don't see. You can count AC cycles, but if the power goes out, there's no cycles to count. And if the AC is the only source of power to the clock, it has no means of "knowing" how long the power was off. They could put a little BIOS chip, and lithium battery in there, so it could keep time like a PC does, but that would add a few dollars to the price.

Please, as Berserker for validation. You don't have to believe me. But you really ought to believe him.

WD was joking about quarantining cars. But Canada is quarantining travelers. Thing is, you can refuse it. There is no underlying law. They will huff and puff and threaten you with fines, but they get thrown out of court.

Yup, its an amazing event. People from all walks of life, yet many things in common. Some of these people are just fucking hysterical in real life, and it's a blast. It really is like being around family. They're all really good people.

863 After I got older and more experienced, those of lesser acumen began to appear more appealing.

Opposite for me. When I was much younger, I dated a young woman for a brief while. She was sweeter than a trainload of sugarcane and nicer than a novice nun. She'd fuck at the drop of a hat, and drop it herself if you weren't. She was happy, eager to please and slightly submissive (not sexually, just generally). She was what many guys, particularly internet guys, would call the ideal woman. Weird thing is that her dad was a big old biker guy. I'd expect a guy like that to have a tougher daughter.

She drove me nuts. I broke it off (gently, oh so gently, she didn't deserve to be hurt. In this case it really was me, not her). I hope she found a guy to cherish her like she deserved, she was ripe to be dominated and abused by an asshole.

Me? I found the love of my life in a redheaded canoehead who isn't afraid to tell me to fuck right the fuck off if I need it. Funniest thing about her is that if she ever gets it into her head to hit me (which doesn't happen often and I'm talking playful hits, not actual violence), she hurts herself on me. And I laugh and laugh and laugh.

865 >> They could put a little BIOS chip, and lithium battery in there, so it could keep time like a PC does, but that would add a few dollars to the price.

Yes. But the battery backup clocks are very piss-poor. I've got several clock radios and alarm clocks that have a battery back-up. That clock is so inaccurate, it will drift a few seconds over just a few hours of loss of AC power.

They could get an order of magnitude better accuracy for just a little bit more cost per unit.

Even a relatively cheap Casio or similar digital watch will only drift a minute or so after years.

868 I gotta learn to be more careful in what I believe from people.

You all do have to agree that things that no one would've thought could happen have happened so it's not hard to fool someone who isn't out and about in the real world with no job to go to daily.

You can't hardly be sarcastic or parody anything as it's just as likely to be true than not.

886 About every time I had to move, the cats I had at the time either died, couldn't be found or just would not leave with me. It's weird now I think about it.

I used to think it was whenever I got a land line. Cause it was usually right after I got a phone that I wound up having to move. I even stopped getting a phone cause of that.

I think that's gotten cured with the mobile phones now. Don't know about the cat jinx. I can't have one where I'm at cause they charge a fee to have a pet.
