Who knew that sucking on silicone was bad? It’s supposed to be inert – you know for moving parts, hydraulics, fun-bags, etc.

Certainly this poor snake was unaware of the health risks.

Men, let this sad moment in herpetology be a sobering reminder to you!  Read the ingredients list first then decide whether to latch onto something.

A little humor to lighten up the mood after that sobering PSA.

Two Arabs boarded a flight out of London. One took a window seat and the other sat next to him in the middle seat. Just before take-off, a U.S. Marine sat down in the aisle seat. After take-off, the Marine kicked off his shoes, wiggled his toes and was settling in when the Arab in the window seat said, “I need to get up and get a Coke.”
“Don’t get up,” said the Marine. “I’m in the aisle seat. I’ll get it for you.”

As soon as he left, one of the Arabs picked up the Marine’s right shoe and spat in it.

When the Marine returned with a Coke, the other Arab said, “That looks good. I’d really like one, too.” Again, the Marine obligingly went to fetch it. While he was gone, the other Arab picked up the Marine’s left shoe and spat in it. When the Marine returned, they all sat back and enjoyed the flight. As the plane was landing, the Marine slipped his feet into his shoes and knew immediately what had happened.

“Why does it have to be this way?” he asked. “How long must this go on? This fighting between our nations? This hatred? This animosity? This spitting in shoes and pissing in Cokes?”

Oh yes, if you see this graphic floating around… IGNORE IT.  It’s a total crock.  US NRC wouldn’t be measuring in Rems and they certainly wouldn’t publish sh*t like this.  I strongly suggest that if the nuclear “stuff” were THAT dangerous, no nuclear reactors would ever have been built nor nuclear weapons because a bomb would have been un-necessary.  That sort of thing leans towards cobalt bombs and I just don’t know enough to say any more.

Plus this popped up and was listed as having come from some official source in Australia.  Yeah, sure.

Update:  Speaking of utterly spineless wimps… listen to Hilary on no-fly zone over Libya

“We had a no-fly zone and then we had 78 days of bombing in Serbia. It did not get Milosevic out of office. It did not get him out of Kosovo until we put troops on the ground with our allies,” she added. “I really want people to understand what we are looking at.”

Clinton also expressed deep doubts about proposals to set up a “no-fly” zone over Libya, saying previous no-fly zones set up over Iraq and Serbia had had little effect.

Hillary should know, she was shot at by sniper fire when she visited.

Obama?  He’s another Jimmeh Cahtah.  When FRANCE steps up and shows bigger balls than the US… damn is this embarrassing.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton underscored on Thursday the need for international consensus on the next steps on Libya, saying any unilateral U.S. move could have unforeseeable consequences.

Democrats in Wisconsin ran away because they didn’t like the fact that the vote would not have gone their way. Had they ALL shown up the vote would have sided with the governor.

So Republicans removed all mention of budget and allocation of monies from the bill that removes collective bargaining from public union employees and passed that bill anyway.  Well played… well played.  If Democrats can play the rules to stop a vote, the Republicans can play the rules to start it.

“In 30 minutes, 18 state senators undid 50 years of civil rights in Wisconsin. Their disrespect for the people of Wisconsin and their rights is an outrage that will never be forgotten,” said Democratic Senate Minority Leader Mark Miller. “Tonight, 18 Senate Republicans conspired to take government away from the people.”  – AP

Well, the vote in the guv’nor’s favor still would have happened had the candy-asses guys been there instead of being a bunch of running/crying/screaming little girls, but at least then they could have faced it like men and women with character.

Note:  My apologies to the insult delivered to little girls everywhere by using them to illustrate the nature Wisconsin Democrats, but I was grasping for a vivid metaphor.

How do you take elected representatives casting legal votes – with or without the opposition party they had a majority – and claim that it is “disrespect for the people of Wisconsin and their rights”?   Minority Leader Mark Miller strikes me as a leader without leadership qualities to brag about.  If people’s civil rights have been removed by taking away collective bargaining then I guess I’ve lived without civil rights most of my life.  Oh boo-hoo.  Bunch of man-babies.

Speak of the Democrat, there goes a man-baby now! At least they’re playing frugal (all part of the act, those tax-n-spend demmy’s)… those rooms cost $15/week, $20 if you want clean sheets.  $25 if you want unstained clean sheets.

Rules are great unless they work against you, sayeth the Democrats.

A majority of those on the Democrat side were complaint-free a year ago during the federal passage of the Health Care Reform fiasco.  Did every Republican walk out en-masse on that one?  I can’t recall…

Earned it.

I am not condoning theft, but if you are willing to hog a bathroom for a whole flight, crawl through panels into the cargo area, steal $200K (plus change), and then complain of heart troubles all so you can make a buck… hell, you’ve earned it.  Keep it.

Passenger steals $238,000 dollars.

So who made Moore the official spokeswhore of the Wisconsin Losers Club?

Captain Corpulent at his best.

Not sure who won the caption for the first photo of yesterday’s posting, but I can tell you that mrmacs got it on the last one.

We’ll get to it when we’re done with our union break.
