  1. So, given the nature of Congress, you can expect those ‘worthies’ to pass laws protecting us in,say, 20 years or so.
  2. Though, really…how? After all: “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”
  3. On the other hand, he sounds like he would make the perfect ‘personal assistant’ for the president*.

  1. Franks should have, according to natural selection, been deselected by now. Just shows how money and power game everyfuckingthing.
    Out behind the barn with him; two in the head.
  2. On another note, we were watching La La Land last evening and the Asta’s were going on and on about living somewhere with palms trees. All i could think of was the hordes of rats that make their nests in them. Yes, even on Hollywood Boulevard: Palm trees are nothing but expensive condos to rats.

Before we get to the links, please note ONLY conference champions should be considered for the FSB semi-finals.

This regardless of individual records, or Nick Saban’s constant plummy pleas.

Oh, wait…never mind.

  1. Apparently Rand’s a combination of Mr. Wilson and a pussy.
  2. Original news story.
  3. ’cause he just makes shit up.
  4. Egads; let’s hope not.
  5. Correct, though almost always useless advice; we did jump with a guy (back when we had far more testosterone than common sense) who had both ‘chutes fail. The way he survived was by aiming for a century old barn, which roof he crashed through as though it were made of balsa wood (terminal velocity for a skydiver: Est. 53 m/s; 195 km/h or 122 mph) through the loft (full of moldering hay) and finally into fresher hay on the ground (ouch!) We don’t remember exactly how many bones he broke/shattered, but do recall that he was back on active duty in just under a year. See? Fairy tales can come true, it can happen to you, if you’re young at heart…
