Re: Familiar spirits

There was a promotion at the pet (food) store where they were giving away free marrow bones, and because they remember Dubs from adopting Biggie, they gave him one for each of the dogs. The marrow bones are highly valuable—too valuable. Sam is always worried Biggie is going to take hers. He’s too b...

Re: Random Observations C.A (306 pages is enough)

Jussie Smollett, according to my new feed, wrote his buddies a check for the attack. You are hilariously bad at committing crimes if you are paying people by check. Did he ask for a receipt, too, do you think?

Re: OFFS: The Forsakening

Vandals try to light a statue of General Lee on fire . Though, unless they are anti-D-Day or the 101st Airborne, it's probably because they were morons. The statue was of General William Lee. Also, further evidence they are idiots is that they tried to set a marble statue on fire. If you heat a mar...

A side effect of this is that many things are designed to be made but not to be repaired or altered. For example, clothing is made without any seam allowance, so you can't let it out.
Design for manufacture (DFM) is a scourge upon the earth. It is a good, but not the highest or only good.

Re: Worthwhile YouTubez Finds

I love watching YouTube DIY videos. A large portion of these people are half-competent at best. No matter how bad you feel about your garage/workbench/space, some jackhole has one that looks a thousand times worse and is showing it to the world. Plus, random pet walkthroughs.

Re: Orange is the new President

I dug up a list (Fake News alert!) from late last year, and a majority of them focus on blocking property of various groups and governments. This implies (to me, anyway) that the blocking of property is something that is difficult/impossible to do under normal legislative or rule making procedures. ...

Re: The Road to Damascus

If the Turks roll in and start slaughtering Kurds, it's not better. If you do a well-defined and planned pullout with negotiated settlements with the Turks and the Kurds, you can get something a bit cleaner. We couldn't get the Kurds and Turks to play nice when we were the imperial governor of Iraq...

The thing about switchblades is... they kinda suck. You can open a lock-back folder pretty quickly, with one hand, if it has a pin or stud on the blade near the pivot point. Should they be banned? No. Same with the butterfly flip-folders. Same for any knife with a 2.5" or longer or whateverthefuckt...
