Liquidity.

This is not news, but it is very cool. The idea of cheap glasses whose Rx can be easily changed by the user to fit what works best for them is something else.

Oh yeah. Happy new year. I might have overdone it, lifting over 4 lbs on New Year’s Eve. I am positive that that bag of rocks is no heavier than 30 lbs, so stop nagging me, Cruel Wife. First time in nearly a month I plan to return to work tomorrow morning. Yay! I am SO bored.

Movie Alert! I haven’t watched it yet but. Albino Farm looks like it may have some promise?

While researching local legends, four students encounter crazed mutant cannibals.

Crazed mutant cannibals. Holy crap, it is a trifecta!

Watching one of my favorite movies – Groundhog Day.

You want a prediction about the weather, you’re asking the wrong Phil. I’ll give you a winter prediction: It’s gonna be cold, it’s gonna be grey, and it’s gonna last you for the rest of your life. – Phil Connors, Groundhog Day

Lord have mercy on your hide if you crack a joke about Madam Speaker Pelosi but apparently you have a lot of growing up to do – as well as grow thicker skin – if you disagree with the president’s court jester spouts off about hoping that Rush Limbaugh’s kidneys fail.

Keep an eye out, folks.

“Comrades!” he cried. “You do not imagine, I hope, that we pigs are doing this in a spirit of selfishness and privilege? Many of us actually dislike milk and apples. I dislike them myself. Our sole object in taking these things is to preserve our health. Milk and apples (this has been proved by Science, comrades) contain substances absolutely necessary to the well-being of a pig. We pigs are brainworkers. The whole management and organization of this farm depend on us. Day and night we are watching over your welfare. It is for your sake that we drink that milk and eat those apples.” – George Orwell’s Animal Farm

Yeah, both jokes were tasteless, but so is the disparity in responses.

I expect better behavior from my president, too. At least Bush had the decency to not be so public about it.

[Later…]

It just occurred to me… Truly, Rush should wear this as a badge of honor.  I mean, really, if you are going to be accepted by this bunch of egomaniacs and sycophantile adherents then you’re doing something really wrong.  If they hate you, you know you’re on the right track.  (I like that word “sycophantile”.)

Speaking of animals… let’s talk equalizing methods.  Like explosives.  The US Forest Circus and their wacky ways.

obliterating animals with explosives

I got the link from McGoo who got it from Weasel who got it from… I don’t know where the heal Weas got it from.  Allen was involved though.  I think that’s what McGoo said.  Anyway, there you are.

With enough explosives, all animals ARE equal.

This is SO typical of the liberal mindset.  A small percentage of the world is blind and travelling the streets by themselves, so why does every single car owner need to put a noisemaker on their car – racking up additional costs and contributing to noise pollution, which was one of the few benefits to an electric car?

Think about that for a minute.

HOW ABOUT WE PUT SENSORS ON THE BLIND PEOPLE THAT PICK UP AN INFRARED OR ELECTRICAL SIGNAL FROM THE CAR AND MAKE NOISE IN THE BLIND PERSON’S HEADPHONES?

Really, how damn hard is that?  Why does the rest of the world have to accommodate YOUR disability?  I don’t get closed captions at the movie theater but you don’t hear me bitching about that.

While I feel for the guy given that he went into shock over pickles on his burger, you have to remember that the world is an imperfect place and that the wages at a Burger King aren’t high enough to recruit and retain the most competent in society (generally).

So why not check your own burger if you live with an allergy that is so life-threatening?  Nah.  Take a walk on the wild side and then sue if that doesn’t work out.

Let’s just say that going blind spontaneously has to be terrifying.  Now imagine it happens while you are the single pilot (and only person) in your aircraft.  Wow.  Truly piloting blind.

Kudos to the pilot for keeping it together and the rescuer for keeping a level head, too.

How about that?  Nuke in a box.  Sorta.  Here’s a better link.  Sorta.

Now I’m waiting for some South Dakotan to start bitching and whining about how they’re going to put one of these next to some aquifer.  Or worse yet, air quality…

Coverage was tilted for Obama this election?  Get the f*** out of here!  Really?

Oh don’t worry.  It’ll be ok.  Right?  Right?

PDF’ed because you just never know when someone is going to wipe out printed or published news anymore.  Not saying I believe it, but it is how the ball got rolling historically.

Another example of what I mean when I piss off Cruel Wife by proclaiming “I have faith in human nature.”

This seems entirely possible to me.  I have an exceptionally keen nose and I can tell you that so far no two people seem to smell the same.

A few were hard to tell though, once they served me with a restraining order.

I didn’t know that you could charge an 8-year old with premeditated murder.  They certainly don’t have the faculties to truly comprehend what it is they have done so how could you charge them?

How come striking Al-Qaeda anywhere wasn’t already a standing order?

Let’s be honest… their coffee wasn’t good enough to justify nearly $5 a moocachino half-calf double-shot-latte with cream and cinnamon anyway.
