Haskins is a habitual offender with a criminal history of multiple incidents involving a fetish he refers to as "cranking." The act entails removing a vehicle's spark plug wires to make the vehicle run roughly to help reach sexual self-gratification.
Rule 34 is apparently nothing more than a specific observation of a broader rule that there is a fetish for every possible situation.

Now pardon me while I crank it.

Do you guys ever wonder how Saudi keeps managing to convince people they are good guys? Forever the idea was oil, but we literally don't need it from them. Regional stability doesn't seem to matter to us too much. Does every meeting start with them pulling out a pocket watch and telling you to look closely?

We don't need their oil in our cars, but oil is traded on a global market and their market clout matters.

That's exactly what it is. They buy what they need. Cash is king and the Saudis have lots of it.

Unfamiliar. But I did give my master's advisor a t-shirt with the eagle from the dollar bill holding a banner saying "I will never reveal the Wu-Tang secret".

I saw one yesterday that said Gowdy announced his retirement was because he was part of it and something something resigned to avoid prosecution or something.
