Hard Time.

Lindsay Lohan sentenced to 30 days and released in 4 hours?  What do you want to bet that she gets four tears tattooed on her butt?

I understand alcoholism and addiction.  But at some point you gotta be allowed to bottom out in order to face up to your problem, realize there’s nothing you can do to stop it without help, and you have to be more afraid of the consequences than the process of coming to grips.  Just a cold hard fact.  She’s been kept from bottoming out so she’ll keep doing the same thing over and over.

Ok, next story…

Let the outrage begin.  In Wisconsin, someone had the nerve to put up the billboard pictured here:

Seriously?  This is like saying sex kills.  Do you really think anyone is going to be swayed in your intended direction, i.e. actually stop eating bacon or less of it?  Phfffft.  Yeahright.

(Car swerves off road as Ritalin-Enhanced Super-Soccer-Mom internalizes the message on the billboard)  Johnny, Suzy – spit those bacon, egg, and cheese biscuits out right now before you get cancer of the asshole!  RIGHT.  NOW.  YOUNG MAN… spit it out!  Suzy, YOU HEARD ME, TOO!  SPIT IT OUT.  OUT!  OUT!  OUT!

Who says romance is dead?

Update:

America is getting meaner?  Oh please.  People are just as mean as they’ve ever been.  Always will be that mean.

Quite simply, what we learn as ‘normal’ we learn as children, and today that is all about violence. It’s ubiquitous and it’s often glorified through internet, movies, video games, TV, and song lyrics. When kids are exposed to violence they accept it as a normal way to resolve a conflict.

Before facebook, movies, video games, and TV those same mean people were out doing mean things in person and they had more daylight hours to do them in.  Strangers were beaten then and are now.  Kids have been beaten then and are now.  People have always been killed and tortured.  Cats have been juggled.

History is just chuck-a-block full of examples of mean people – burning folks alive, drownings, lynchings, stonings – hell, you name it, the evil that men do has been a constant since the first human picked up a bone to brain someone else with.

This kind of article is absolutely ridiculous.

Lots of plague in my house.  Cruel Wife came down with it finally.

Didn’t stop me from making Bacon Jam and a dip of chives, bacon, cream cheese, and mayo.  I call it “Chives, Bacon, Cream Cheese, and Mayo Dip”.   There’s probably a fancy name like “Green Goddess” only it’d be “Brown and White with Little Bits of Green Goddess” because by God, that’s the color you end up with.

I don’t know where on the net I found the bacon jam, but I did.

Slow-Cooker Bacon Jam

adapted from Everyday Food,  December 2010

2 pounds sliced bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces

2 medium yellow onions,  diced small

3 garlic cloves, minced

3/4 cup brewed coffee

1/2 cup cider  vinegar

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1/4 cup maple syrup

2 teaspoons  molasses

In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium-high, stirring occasionally, until  bacon is lightly browned, 20-25 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer bacon to  paper-towel covered plate to drain.

Pour off all but one tablespoon bacon fat (reserve for another use). Add  onions, cook until translucent. Add garlic, cook until fragrant. Add coffee,  vinegar, sugar, syrup, and molasses. Bring to a boil for 2 minutes, scraping up  brown bits with a wooden spoon. Add bacon, stir to combine.

Transfer mixture to a large slow-cooker (5-6 quarts). Cook uncovered on high  for 4 hours or until syrupy. Transfer to food processor and pulse to coarsely  chop.

Cool, then refrigerate in airtight containers, up to 4 weeks. Also freezes  well.

I didn’t use the 3/4C of coffee though.  Red Bull.

You actually believed that, didn’t you.  Sad.

You know you’re old when you finally – after hours of searching – find the old CBS station bumper music and it takes you back to the early/mid 70’s.  And you think of Bill Bixby in The Incredible Hulk (Friday nights) and how James Garner in The Rockford Files (Saturday nights, I think) was pretty darned entertaining and all that…

To a kid that sound was kind of mournful/spooky.

North Carolina School Sells Test Scores to Students

GOLDSBORO, N.C. — Wednesday, November 11, 2009

A middle school in North Carolina is selling test scores to students in a bid to raise money.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Wednesday that a parent advisory council at Rosewood Middle School in Goldsboro come up with the fundraising plan after last year’s chocolate sale flopped.

The school will sell 20 test points to students for $20.

Students can add 10 extra points to each of two tests of their choice. The extra points could take a student from a “B” to an “A” on those tests or from a failing grade to a passing grade.  Principal Susie Shepherd says it’s not enough of an impact to change a student’s overall grades.

Officials at the state Department of Public Instruction say exchanging grades for money teaches children the wrong lessons.

Gee, do ya think???

Okay, since we’ve (allegedly) messed up our climate through stupidity and inability to see the future, how could we possibly see the results of messing with the weather?

“No one can tell how much weather manipulation will change the sky,” Xiao Gang, a professor in the Institute of Atmospheric Physics at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, told the paper.

Wait… we can’t tell how much weather manip will change the sky?  So how do we know much of anything about climate behavior?  I thought we knew all there was to know, given the dire predictions facing us over the next century.  ???

Sweet and Savory.

Yeah, maybe but I think I’d barf before I could eat it.

Reminds me of the joke – what is the last thing to go through a mosquito’s mind when he hits a car windshield?  His ass.

This guy was lucky he didn’t do it when he bungee corded.

A British daredevil’s vacation bungee jump went horribly wrong when his cord came loose and he hit the water at 80 miles an hour — but miraculously, he survived.

Rishi Baveja, 21, told “FOX & Friends” Wednesday that he didn’t even know the rope around his ankles had slipped off during his videotaped 165-foot leap in Thailand until the very end.  – source:  Fox News

He’s lucky he isn’t dead or paralyzed.
