Oh, aye, that's always what you vikings say when we catch you prowling off the coast! Let me guess...those aren't swords, right, just right proper fileting knives? Planning on some nighttime spear fishing, too, I'd wager?

And, is that an open container of mead by the helmsman? I'm going to need you to step out of the boat...

96 "Rock Your Baby" was interesting in that it was actually a proto-KC & The Sunshine band track, but KC couldn't hit the high notes he himself had written, so little-known nightclub singer George McRae, who did session backup vocals for the same label, was recruited in to sing it, and ended up with a #1 hit.

That track is also a very early example of using a drum machine.

God.

Plus, Stan is the ruler of this world, but his time is growing short and he knows this. So things are being sped up, so to speak.

Good news is God (and we) win in the end, but in the meantime, prepare, 'cause it's gonna be a bumpy ride.

112 I thought by the time I typed this we'd be over 100 comments.

I missed the baby formula thread. But just chiming in as I currently have a little one on formula right now: there is no baby formula shortage in Europe. We order formula from Germany. Yes prices have gone up because of fuel costs, but no FDA and no shortages there.

The reason we get formula that way is there is no soy or corn syrup in German formula. Even very expensive brands of US formula contain soy and usually some form of corn syrup. I might be a crazy health nut, but I'd rather not give my baby food additives that are in everything just because of farm subsidies.

There's actually a whole market for this for American parents. You have to promise it's only for "personal use" to not get the FDA involved if you order in bulk.

So yeah, the formula shortage is a US govt problem.

120 That's been called the very first disco song. (Full disclosure: I like disco. That rolling beat is attractive and fun to sing along with, and it gave rise to some exciting and "dangerous"-sounding songs like "Stayin' Alive" and "She Works Hard for the Money.")

Disco was the last time dance music had a live drummer and a live bass player. You can't beat that feel, no matter how many times you push the "random imperfections" button that modern DAWs have.

I had a kidney stone attack yesterday. The 2nd in my life. It wasn't great. The emergency room gave me some !!FLOOOOWMAX!! some antibiotics and some anti nausea. They were supposed to order me 1) CT scan and 2) a meeting with a urologist. The urologist called and said, " Hey, we can't do jack until we get a CT " I said, " Yeah, dude, I know". So I had to call the emergency room back and get them to schedule the scan. Meanwhile, I haven't passed the boulder yet, I don't think, and the only thing keeping me from being doubled over in pain is the !!FLOOOOWMAX!! and ibuprofen. It hasn't been a great few days.

132 "Rock Your Baby" was interesting in that it was actually a proto-KC & The Sunshine band track, but KC couldn't hit the high notes he himself had written, so little-known nightclub singer George McRae, who did session backup vocals for the same label, was recruited in to sing it, and ended up with a #1 hit. . . .

Posted by: Guy Smiley at May 12, 2022

I did not know that. KC was already a charting artist in '74? The Wiki article says their first real hit was "Get Down Tonight" in '75. I remember "I'm Your Boogie Man" playing on AM radio the spring Mrs. Wolfus No. 1 bought her Ford Maverick (it only had an AM radio, so Top 40 was it) in '76.

Anyway, I was so overwhelmed with sorrow after having briefly been taken back to such a more innocent, better, & hopeful time during the first 10 minutes of the film that I just broke down and couldn't continue. Even woke up the poor wifey down the hall in the bedroom, who heard me and thought there had been a death in the family.

CT guides treatment. If the stone is too big to pass, they need to keep you and do a procedure. If not then you get discharged and wait for it to pass while you strain your pee and then get the stone analyzed.


I assume you are not febrile? Get your CT as soon as possible. If you get feverish go to the ER (a different one).

Here's the thing, I think-
Senile Joe and Company are essentially playing the same game with Russia that they are now currently playing with the American public. And that game is-
How provocative do we have to be to get some asshole conservatives to react violently so we can roll in the troops and look like the good guys saving the day?
This explains the idiotic doubling down on every single issue wrecking people's lives, money, future, and children.

Same same with Russia. How provocative do we have to be to get asshole Putin to lob some tactical nukes or commit some violent pushback against us or our allies that allows us to go into wartime mode and get all the power that follows that?
These people aren't nearly as smart as they think they are.

Anyway, I was so overwhelmed with sorrow after having briefly been taken back to such a more innocent, better, & hopeful time during the first 10 minutes of the film that I just broke down and couldn't continue. Even woke up the poor wifey down the hall in the bedroom, who heard me and thought there had been a death in the family.

I had no idea either, until rumors of this death broke on Twitter last week. But good Lord, the comments show what a cesspool part of America and most of Twitter is.

Samuels, as I understand it, had the nerve to say things like if you're a guy who doesn't have a job, you should work on that before trying to get a woman. And girls, if you're a fat chick, Prince Charming ain't coming through that door. As Samuels was black, most of this was directed at the black community.
So most of Twitter was celebrating his death.

If you have doubts go to another ER. I am sure their discharge instructions say, if you aren't feeling better, feeling worse or get a fever return to ER.

I don't recall the exact size, but at some point the stone is too big to pass and they have to do a procedure to get it out. Lithotripsy or something. If it stuck there a while you can get septic (bacteria in your blood) which can make you very sick and eventually kill you. If you get a high fever Not 99.8 but like 100.9 - go the ER. One that is attached to a hospital - not an freaking urgent care. Because you will get scanned and depending on that may need admission.

Thank you, sir.
Those of us who remember the Hill vs. Thomas hearings were shocked that he made it on the court. Ginny's actions add a whole new level of outrage. Lamenting the Thomas hearings not going far enough shouldn't be surprising. Dems have always backed lynching uppity black men.

Lilies of the Field ran on my local PBS station some years ago, when they would present a classic movie on Saturday night without commercials. Really well done.
