  1. TGBDS: Epic Randomness

    A good idea but the area where my friend lost his ring is probably only harvestable if you used some Incan cliffside agricultural techniques ...
  2. God save us....

    I noticed the Facebook chatter about this has heated up with both camps starting change.org petitions to save/change the name of my old high school. In reading the comments on the in the "save" camp, one woman offered Lee's meritorious efforts in the War of 1812 as reason enough to keep his name on the high school ...
  3. God save us....

    The disconcerting thing (again, not just 'the', but one of many) indicative of this conversation is the existence of two very distinct and mutually exclusive parallel universes now. One where Trump is a brilliant tactician who despite being bogged down in the morass of Washington cronyism and a liberal media hell bent on blowing up every meaningless foible and slipup is doing his damndest to get good smart legal reform passed. Another where Trump is an inept con-man and bully, whose gargantuan ego got him in so far over his head, who is acting in his own self-interest over the country's, and whose every act is at best counter-productive and backward-looking and at worst motivated by a seemingly unlimited reservoir of hubris and hatefulness. And each parallel universe has its own dedicated media and "facts" and reality. I don't know how we work past this as a nation. I read crunch's stuff above and I realize that we just simply live in two mutually incomprehensible realities. Maybe this is the way things were back in the Hearst/Pulitzer days when every political ideology had its own newspaper and they were getting the country into wars so that they could sell more papers. I guess we got through that, so hopefully we'll get through this ....

    Waco taught me that the guys he hit were probably sluts who were all but asking to be punched 21 times ...

    I feel this conversation is really getting somewhere ...

    So that's where I can find the Fantastic Breasts ...

    The local paper had this story about the NWS prediction for the likelihood of it being cloudy where you live during the eclipse and it does have the portion immediately next to the coast under "Poor" but Portland looks to be "Fair" and most of Oregon is "Good." South Carolina at the other end of the "Path of Totality" is "Poor". Pittsburgh, FWIW, is currently in a big band of "Good." So we only get an 80% eclipse, but we'll be able to see it ... Will cloud cover obscure Monday's solar eclipse in Pittsburgh and beyond?
  8. God save us....

    And the fact that it has taken (most of) us 150 years to come to that conclusion speaks volumes in and of itself ...
  9. God save us....

    That one makes me uneasy too, although for very different reasons ...
  10. God save us....

    It won't and I don't think anyone expects that it will. But (white) people are starting to realize that they are symbols of a big problem. Has there ever been any other war in human history where a failed rebellion and the people who perpetuated it has been celebrated across the country against which it rebelled? Take the slavery and racism about which it was fought out of the equation. The American Civil War has always been the exception to the "history is written by the winners" rule ...
