Quick Update:

It’s getting pretty bad when your ENEMIES give you the silent treatment (rolls eyes). Poor poor bitchy Hillary… What’s a witch gotta do to get treated like a queen around here?

X-treme Geek has once again earned hosannas in my humble (but still really really important) opinion.


It’s the X-treme Geek USB Forklift!!!

RC ForkLift

I don’t know what I’d lift with it, but I need one anyway. Bad. Real bad. Wet-your-pants-if-you-aren’t -granted-gratification-within-20-minutes bad.

I know my wife (aka “Frog”) reads this drivel that I write so maybe I can get one without groveling.


Since the Universe is not without balance (meaning God has a wicked funny sense of humor) the mixed variety of individuals at X-treme Geek have another offering…

The Deluxe ION USB Turntable

Please, since my hearing is 50% gone and wear hearing aids, correct me if I’m wrong… vinylphiles keep their LP’s because the analog nature of the LP gives music more depth/range/warmth and leads to reduced chances of toenail cancer and bleeding gums in lab rats. So, I take my USB record player, put my LP on it, the signals get digitized at Nyquist sampling frequencies (44KHz) and sent over the USB link and through my digital sound card and spit out to my speakers. How is this useful? Great! Now I can cart around my LP’s and a bulky player everywhere! And less quality “Win-win”, oh yeah.


Honorable mention goes to the Remote Revolver.

Remote Revolver

I would remove the little orange-red thingy. If I’m going to pretend I’m shooting my tv in my own home, I’m going to do it w/o ruining the illusion. It beats my current system which will only turn off the tv. My current controller requires no batteries, and is really hard to lose – it’s called The Brick and comes in red, brown, and grey colors.


A cool Universal Card Reader:

Universal Card Reader

Neato! I like the simtel aspect of it.


And lastly, the single most obnoxious thing I can imagine ever walking, rolling, or slithering across the face of this earth, besides most current-office-holding democrats…

Coco, the cute but soon to be short-lived alarm clock

Little Coco would last just one single night (morning). It would then go through stages of decombobulation.

  1. Stabbing via Abalone Knife (reserved for just such occasion, but with normal clocks)
  2. Burning, using ashes and sugar to prolong the pain
  3. Crushing blows via 15lb sledgehammer, with lots of garlic (can’t be too sure with these things)
  4. Wrapping in a bag of salt
  5. Burial, 6 ft deep hole, minimum
  6. Pavement over the top of the hole, not less than 6″ thick

To close today’s festivities, I can speak for all of us, I’m sure, when I say that this is a MUST HAVE item.

Laser Tag = Fun.
Laser Tag + Shocking The Snot Out Of You = Scream-Like-A-Girl Fun.

Update, then on to the day’s post….:

Obama Willing to Sell Out His Beliefs to Get Elected

How about that? His ex-pastor who really hasn’t said anything differently lately than he has for the last 20 years ‘Bama was in his church, is now considered a pariah by ‘Bama, and ‘Bama is shocked… SHOCKED at the words coming out of Rev. Wright’s mouth.

I think he’s a better Re-Inventor than Hillary or Kerry combined. There’s a movie poster in that somewhere…

Update #2, and I’m intensely interested in this… a vaccine for nicotine.  Sign me up.

Dribs and drabs, today…  Did I show you this?

Not sure if I did or not. It just REEKS of feminine beauty <cough, cough>.

I tried to poke my eyes out but “They” stopped me. The voices say that I should still keep trying though…

Aaaaaaaaagh! It’s a Basilisk!

~~~~~Today’s Post~~~~~~~

All Righty… not a scientific study, it is small (143 samples), and it hasn’t been well thought out. Had I to do it over again, I might factor in when the female sexual predators were caught – I wonder if there is a correlation when you look at what generation they are from. Bet there is…

Anyway, click on it for the larger graphic. One thing that struck me… aren’t women usually hitting their sexual peak in mid thirties? This peaks out well before that, around 28. If it was a matter of the individual being a lifelong predator you’d expect 22-24 to be higher since they’d start right in as soon as possible. You could say “Well, they might have gone on to get a Master’s in Education”. Mebbe, don’t know.

Or… they get bored and start doing stupid things for the excitement. Any other suggestions?

There is a gentleman in the blogosphere who could use your help. He is having some setbacks in his adoption of two girls, because of paperwork not properly done by his lawyer in the beginning. I should say “Setbacks” (capital “S”). It is costing him lots of time, money, and even his physical well-being. Tough row to hoe. So if you are able, whether it be kind words, donations, prayers… He could sure use it.

Stachiu’s Place is here


A topic that makes my blood boil, my vision goes red, and I growl…

Why would you put limits in a library for viewers under 18, but not for over 18 and make it so lax that you can view lots of good ol’ fashioned smut and more?  Is a public library the forum to be viewing pornographic materials?  I supposed it will be the day that DisneyWorld shows Wanda Whips Wall Street.

This frightening ****er. was caught, thank God.

There are some scary liberals out there that think freedom of speech (which originally meant freedom from persecution by the government for political speech) means that people have a free pass to engage in whatever kind of sick thing suits their fancy in a public library.

Prior to this in Tulare County, California – a librarian, Brenda Biesterfeld, was fired for calling the police after observing a man browsing… wait for it… child pornography in her library. She is trying to get her job back and compensation and is now being legally represented by Liberty Counsel.

Amazingly, her records were altered after she was fired, to show “plausible reason” why she was appropriately let go.

Liberty Counsel even obtained a performance evaluation given Jan. 15 by Judy Hill, the supervisor who fired Biesterfeld, stating she was performing satisfactorily.

Even while her case continues, Biesterfeld was honored by city officials in Lindsay and the Family Friendly Libraries, which gave her a Gold Star Award for her actions.

It also was Hill who, when police made the arrested and confiscated the computer, told officers they had no business enforcing the child pornography law within the library, according to reports.

Randy Thomasson, chief of the Campaign for Children and Families, a prominent pro-family leadership group, said he also was working to build support for the librarian.

“Our goal is to get Brenda’s job back, to institute a new library policy that has no tolerance for obscenity and child pornography, and to send a nationwide message that child predators will not be allowed to ‘do their thing’ in libraries,” he said.

Thomasson said the local battle has significant national implications.

“We’re also defending children nationwide,” he said. “You see, the American Library Association, which is the controlling influence over libraries nationwide, views pornography and obscenity as ‘intellectual freedom.’ Because of this, many libraries in the U.S. allow child pornographers to use their Internet system undetected and unreported. Is it any wonder why child molestation has become so common?”

According to the association’s own Web page regarding intellectual freedom and censorship, it is not the work of a library to protect children from material that is “legally obscene.”

(from the article mentioned above “This Frightening ****er”) Credit given to WND.com

Does anyone hear echoes of a liberal at some point saying “but it’s for the children…“? Well, if everything is for the children, why is this not a HUGE issue? The most innocent in our society aren’t getting real protection where it is desperately needed.

And yes, you heard it right… pornography and obscenity is “intellectual rights” within a public library, and gosh, police have no business enforcing the law in a library.  How many perverts executing a “manual override” in the library are reading American Scientist whilst casually browsing porn.

Can someone please respond and tell me why chemical castration is not allowed in cases where rape or child molestation occurs?

~~~~~~~~~~~~ Comic Relief ~~~~~~~~~~~~

You know, with friends like this, who needs dire enemas?

Obama backs away from Rev. Wright, Claims he’s wrong

And Wright keeps a-followin’ him. Saunter on over to Richard Miniter’s site for a real eye-opener. Heh heh heh heh. Sorry, guess this wasn’t the comic relief I thought it would be. Many thanks to Ace of Spades who originally posted on this topic and provided great links.

Update: Is Hilary Planning to Run in 2012?

Oh boy, I sure hope so! This has been more fun than an ingrown toenail these last three year’s worth of presidential election campaigning.

Second Update [warning: disturbing content]:

Evil does walk this world. My God… why are some people not struck down by lightning bolts while elsewhere kind people die? ()

More on this bastard here it’ll turn your stomach.


This is a tragedy, that they would starve this man. Rather than give him the 4000 calories a day he needs to maintain at 431 or so pounds, they starve him with 3000 calories per day. He’s lost over 100lbs and he’s hungry. The BASTARDS.

Just because you beat a man and stab him to death, then burn his home, is no reason to make jail an uncomfortable place. It’s worse than Auschwitz. And they only get 50 tv channels. Oh the humanity!

[ PLEASE NOTE THE DRIPPING sarcasm… just another service I offer.]

Meanwhile. Ish. Ms. Dupre, the ho that Eliot Spitzer got all pavlovian about and drooled all over at the sound of her voice, is set up to make MILLIONS (Link here). So yes, you can screw people and get ahead. (oh the jokes that exist there) I mean, the man had all the self control of a compulsive gambler with a $2000 house credit. He was pathetic, and has managed to let his teenager hormones pretty much ruin his life and his family’s. Ann Coulter had a nice piece on that as did Michelle Malkin at this location, if you didn’t find them back in the day.

RETRACTION: She’s not a total slut. She’s suing Girls Gone Wild for the tune of $10M. So she’s screwing them on paper. I guess you gotta get into the spirit of the thing.

So who says you can’t make a lot of money by selling your soul, body, and mind. Oh, I guess no one did, did they? Well, he got what he deserved, she was a willing victim (which is to say no victim at all) and lots of cash to flash for it. I’m sure she has learned her lesson.

Now, constant reader, please go with me to peruse Chuck Norris‘ article on Border Fences.

Yes, I know, libtard philosphy strongly encourages that we build bridges, not fences, but then again if I find a libtard that is even marginally smarter than an Afghan Hound or a Boston Fern, I’ll be amazed. There’s some very intelligent people who cannot seem to get smart and figure out that protecting borders makes sense.

Chuck is kind of like a breath of fresh air. As I was growing up he was always just a guy who did martial arts, was kind of a hard player, and almost of renegade mentality. Not any more. The man has turned things about very well and is proving that he’s got some real smarts that he can share with us. Here.

And continued thanks to Steven Milloy for his crusade against Junk Science, this time about BPA. This involves plastics for baby bottles killing hundreds of thousands of kids. It involves the fact that it didn’t happen. Long live Junk Science … have a read on his information regarding the myths surrounding DDT while you’re at it.

Ok, no joke at all here, but this is sad – dolphins are my flat-out favorite creatures, because they smile all the time.

Cindy Sheehan is filing to run against Nancy Pelosi!!!

I LOVE it when libtards try to eat each other.

And now, on to our regularly scheduled post…


At last, I have solved the ages old question: Which came first, the chicken or the egg?

I’m so happy I think I just wet myself.

By going to MorgueFile, I now have the answer. Ready everyone? Here it comes! Can’t you just taste the excitement? Oh you can cut it with a knife! It smells like… a dairy farm. Kind of like cow sh*t. Sorry, that’s just me. Here goes… ladies and gentlemen, the answer to the ages old question of which came first…

BBQ’d chicken. THEN comes the chicken, and lastly, the egg.

Yep, you heard that right. The Morgue File has solved this issue so we can all move on to better things, like why supermarket checkers are not allowed to beat people who wait until all groceries are bagged before hunting for their checkbooks with a look of surprise. Really, they ought to be able to take out a Louisville Slugger and do some stompin’.

But anyway, Kevin Connors over at MorgueFile was kind enough to give me permission to use his photo. At first the results for my visualization of socks on a chicken were pretty lame because I was using a mouse. But with the Wacom tablet, you can shade things and add shadows with unprecedented precision. It’s not perfect yet, but it’s not bad, either. (clickit)

Added the Punk Rock Chicken treatment because my daughter thought he needed some sprucing up.

But there you have it folks, SOCKS ON A CHICKEN, which is kind of what I think of this year’s presidential election BS.

Going to be a work in progress for a bit as I add more to this post.

For now, digest this. It talks about how racism is so subtle we don’t even know it. GASP!! I am? Oh crud, what a shitheel I am!

Read up, you fellow white racist bastards.


Another page I found makes this claim:

No matter what any of the circumstances are about you and your life, you are a racist if any one of the following are true:

  1. You have a problem with your children marrying/dating a person outside of their own race, unless that person is white
  2. You have a problem with yourself marrying/dating a person outside of your own race, unless that person is white

Just prior to that, this individual claimed:

[an individual]’s mother is living proof that having black friends, even close black friends, does not mean you aren’t a racist.

Ah. I see. So despite having a black roommate and my best man (and awesome friend) being hispanic, I’m a racist, and of even lower class than the KKK because at least they were obvious (the author’s words). Now isn’t that interesting? So it seems that despite my words and actions, it’s highly likely that I’m a racist because I’m white. I’m flabbergasted. So there is nothing I can do to avoid this label and level of distrust? By even bringing up the topic, it’s even worse?

THAT my friends, is another type of racism.

What is troubling to me is the willingness and ease with which minorities of any type are willing to cry racism or discrimination anytime anything happens that they don’t like – promotional issues, someone voicing their opinion, the classic “they didn’t look at me because of the way I’m dressed”, etc.

What can be called racism or discrimination can sometimes be a tool for survival. Let me tell you, as a man, every single day I see a woman who will not meet my eye because she is thinking (sub)consciously about potential dangers (and my wife verifies this) relating to my being a male stranger. I live with it. Am I a rapist? No not that I could prove it to the one bent on perceiving me that way. But at the same time, I have to respect that the lone woman being PRUDENT. Most rapists are MEN. Not all men are rapists, there’s a difference. I’m not claiming 1 to 1 correlation here between rapists and minorities, just using an example of wisely exercised discrimination based on cold hard truths.

Then, too, just as there is real racism, what can’t be denied is a climate of hypersensitivity. Ken Hamblin, radio talk show host, put it very well when a caller came on his show one day. The caller greeted him with a “Hello brother…” to which Hamblin immediately said “I’m not your brother, I don’t even know you”. The caller was talking about signs of racism all around him that were stopping him from achieving his goals. Hamblin stopped him and used an illustrative example – if you are crossing a street, and someone is in your way, do you turn around and walk back, or do you go around him? This upset the caller, who was hoping for validation of some sort, based on their brotherhood of color.

Another factor at work here is evident elsewhere. If you look at rape statistics, you would be led to believe that there are many many rapists out there, and the same goes for child molesters (and there are a great deal of both and I wish we’d deal with them properly but that’s another post). What isn’t brought to light is how many of these separate and distinct victims were accosted by repeat offenders. A child predator (may they rot in a pile of excrement) is likely to commit their foul deeds many many times, leaving quite a few helpless victims in their wake, so the statistics are good concerning the number of (reported) victims but don’t accurately capture the number of offenders.

I’m distressed by the volume of complaints which are totally subjective in nature (read: subtle), and cannot be substantiated or rebutted. Believe me (although it is not likely since I’m white) I would like nothing more than to pull down anyone who operates based on hate.

I was, I believe, accused of racism at a previous place of employment, and I can see how that was construed that way, but since the individuals in question did not know the whole story the label stuck. The actual truth was I was spending a disproportionate amount of time trying to help a white sad sack get his shit together and out of loser-dom. Turns out I learned a lesson, that some people like this sad-sack will NEVER get their shit together and that I was wasting my time. The minority fella in question? Best worker I’ve ever seen and w/o him the project would have failed. He was a godsend.

And for those of you who stuck it out this far… more proof that I must be racist, a column from one of my favorite authors, Thomas Sowell.

Update Image… probably appropriate that I did some updating while enduring… a migraine! Wow!  At least that is what the prevailing opinion seems to be… general neck pain and that evolves into bitchin’ migraines. Of course, my heart wasn’t in it, and I stopped well short of satisfaction. The plan is to have things go black and red behind him, show color to the bottom and left in front of him, but as you look closer and closer to him, things start to wash out and go grey, blending into the wave of black.  It’s a work in progress still.

(Gets bigger if you click on it)

I don’t know if a muse aids art or just writing. Doesn’t matter. Inspiration wanders by so you grab it.


The “Before” Post

After several days of this bitch-kitty of a headache, I decided I was going to try to bring the visual to life. Below is my mental image (more or less) of the damned riderless black horse as it thuds it’s way to me at onset. Thud-thud, thud-thud, thud-THUD, THUD-THUD… damn thing’s eyes and hooves glow and it is most certainly, oh so certainly frothing as if it were rabid.

It’s not “right”, as it is a work-in-progress, but it conveys the idea, I guess. What I want is for the area around that fell beast to just grow dark for it having even been there. The horse should represent the antithesis of life.

(I think it’ll be a bigger pic if you click on it…)

I guess muse would work in a very roundabout way (might even fit the definition of irony). Stephen King gave me the notion, the concept, years ago when I was knee-high to a grasshopper. I was reading Firestarter which has to be one of his more endearing (if tragic) stories. Andy McGee ended up having these headaches after he “pushed” someone.

UPDATE: Friday Afternoon

From Fox News… How cultured and polite are the hecklers these days!

Bush Heckler Arrested After Punching Wheelchair-Bound Girl

Thursday , April 24, 2008


A man heckling First Lady Laura Bush and daughter Jenna outside the 92nd Street Y was arrested after he punched a wheelchair-bound girl whose parents had told him to shut up, authorities said Wednesday.

German Talis, 22, was shouting obscenities at the Bushes, who were leaving the building Tuesday, when he crossed paths with Wendy and John Lovetro and their daughter Maureen, 18, who has cerebral palsy.

They had been in the audience to hear the Bushes talk about their children’s book, “Read All About It.”

“He began yelling about Iraq and Iran at Jenna Bush. She was waving at the crowd. I told the guy, ‘What are you doing? Shut up. This is about a child and books,’ ” said John Lovetro. “He was unperturbed. I said, ‘Get out of here! You’re being a moron!’ ”

The next thing he knew, Talis was allegedly punching Maureen, a fan of the first lady since meeting her in 2004.

I want to be caustic, cynical, and disparaging because on the face of it, the whole exercise looks like it is performed by individuals with too much time on their hands and kind of ridiculous given that hooks and sinkers have served so well for so long.

But it actually looks like fun.



On another note, here’s a disturbing trend, or if not a trend, a concept.

People committing suicide by homemade gas chambering, using cleanser and detergent.


It’s better than the psychotic going-postal folks (V-Tech, for example) but it’s still sad and a bit careless since it can hurt others.  Although by the time you’re in the frame of mind to kill yourself clear and rational thought is kind of distant.

Now, I get a little bit squeamish when he uses the word heroes to describe firefighters but I get the sense in which he means it. As one who has fought forest fires, I think he paid a very nice tribute.

Mosey on over and check out Michael Ramirez, who has gained my gratitude and respect. Very thoughtful cartoon.

A fellow firefighter friend of mine, Scott Blecha, was a fellow lifeguard in college as well. More specifically he was a Smokejumper, which in my opinion is like the equivalent of a Ranger or Commando. He was one of the 14 who died on Storm King. They ran as hard as they could, a few made it out and some of them with some burns, but others were not able to crest the ridge before it crowned out. It is doubtful that even fire shelters (sometimes affectionately referred to as shake-n-bake shelters) would have helped in this instance, so explosive was the fire in the trees once it flashed. Scott died trying to help others make it to safety. The real tragedy was he had proposed to his fiance a few weeks prior to this fire.

I take it back. There are heroes.

I am Shocked… SHOCKED.

Hamas Leader Vows Not to Recognize Israel After Carter Trumpets Terror Group’s Willingness to Be Good ‘Neighbor’


I never would have seen this coming in a million years. Who could have foreseen this?

Face it, Carter didn’t know what he was doing with terrorists in the 70’s and people recognized it and he doesn’t know now. Surprise! Sad thing is, I think the guys is basically honest and decent, but his problem is he’s naive enough to believe everyone else is, too.

That’s a serious failing in a leader and not much better as a tool for the enemy.

A very good reason why I’d not make a good ambassador… I’d say “Do you have any sand around?”  And no matter what they say, I’d suggest that they go find a big pile of it and pound it up their ass.

Not good for building bridges, I’m afraid.  Nobody’s perfect.

If you do, please, vote in an informed manner. Or if you can’t do that, just don’t bother to show up. Obama is just as facile with a lie as Hil/Bil.


Oh, yes, I forgot…

Oil and rice race to record levels


Not to get all hysterical and everything, but next consider that Stratfor made note of the fact that there’s three US carriers in the region not too far from China, one paying a call to port at Hong Kong.

Not saying anything but put it in the background there…

For fun, here is a Maxine comic. I have no idea if it is a real one by the artist or whether it was done by someone else. If it is yours, claim it and we can work out whether I may continue to post it here. I’m posting it because it’s fun, not ’cause I’m saying it is mine or making money off of it. Think of it as advertising for free!

She cracks me up. Caustic. I picture Ann Coulter being much like her someday.
