Fatwa Arbuckle: Misanthropologist

G’day from Happy Larryville, GN!

Cute thread GIF, Mac.

The entire ATL metro area is in a frenzy over “Killer Death Freeze Twister Squall Blizzardnado Aieeeee We’re All Going To Die Horribly Snowpocalypse 2014” because we might get up to 2″ of snow this afternoon/evening. (With deadly predicted highs of 38 tomorrow, 43 on Thursday and 52 on Friday; OMFG!!!!1!!!)

It’s reminiscent of the panic over the first significant rain every fall in SoCal.

And happy SOTU Day! I can hardly wait to watch that SCOAMF inspire the country with his words of wisdom and encouragement.

Hai, Sven…and Happy Birfday V/VII to Plaguie!!

My tribute to Pete Seeger:

This corpse is my corpse, this corpse is your corpse
From the crawling maggots, to the bloating gases
From the rigor mortis, to the emptied bladder
This corpse was made for you and me

Maaaaaan…writing parody lyrics is a snap when they don’t have to rhyme.


I’d love to see Rep. Joe Wilson repeat his performance from a couple of years ago at tonight’s SOTU…both because it’s absolutely truthful and if an inept, corrupt, scumbag President cannot be mocked anytime and anywhere, the Republic’s already pretty much lost.

Screw decorum, screw courtesy, screw respect; Obama deserves none.

Good morning, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, FrozenFatwa and SOTUSven!
Safe travels, Jerry and happy crop dusting!
X -- can you charge your neighbor a pasturing fee for letting his cattle feed on your land?
On tap for today:
Two finals
A three hour break
A yoonyun meeting (I wonder if the education lawsuit in CA will be brought up?)
Teh SOTU latest campaign speech by our SCOAMF.

I think I’ll skip the last one.

X — can you charge your neighbor a pasturing fee for letting his cattle feed on your land?

What an excellent (and snarky) suggestion.

It’s been snowing here for about ninety minutes; less than 1/4″ so far and it’s not sticking on pavement. Supposed to continue until around 23.00 but aside from icy bridges after dark (when the temp will drop into the upper twenties), I don’t think it’s going to have much impact ’round Gwinnett.

Did our weekly Walmart run earlier (despite the fact we had plenty of the proverbial “bread and toilet paper”) and the store was no busier than normal. However, people being the way they are, I bet by 19.00 they’ll be largely out of the usual stuff folks panic-buy.

Neener, neener, neener.

Hope everyone with weird weather (including drought) is safe and secure.

And in honor of “crop dusting”, here’s the theme to “North By Northwest” (very nicely remastered, too):

We did our town run yesterday -- ahead of today’s freezing precipitation event. Damn near every school for 75 miles closed today, and the “event” was mostly overrated.

My boss-boss got a heart attack out of it though -- his 18-year old daughter was on her way to work this morning, and spun out over four lanes of traffic. No injuries, no damage -- but, like a true immortal yewt, she thought 70 MPH was slowing down in icy conditions.

X — can you charge your neighbor a pasturing fee for letting his cattle feed on your land?

We could try, but with that cheap-ass bastard, I don’t think he’d pay. What I can and probably will do if it happens again, is padlock the gate and make it impossible to retrieve the animal. I’m pretty sure Mr. X is going to frown on that idea…
He did *fix* the fence -- it’s a unique fix -- I haven’t seen a 4x5 piece of plywood used for that particular application out here.

And…we just spent the last 45 minutes chasing the same damn cow off our property. She found another weak spot to crash through, and that’s going to take a little more work than a piece of plywood. Of course, we were out walking the dogs and the boys had to go investigate … and Lati took a hoof to the head … which apparently made *0* impression because he shook it off and started heading back towards the cow. o_0

He’s fine. No bumps, no sore spots -- he must have the Pyrenees skull.

Chances are she’ll be back again (once they know where they can get greens they’ll come back), and I think I’ll break out the pellet gun if I spot her over here tomorrow. Not that it’ll work…may have to buy a paintball gun.

And I’m with Paddy, I’m not watching the STFU speech tonight -- I’ve got episodes of “Fast & Loud” and “Counting Cars” on the DVR for our dinnertime fare. And then I’ve got Season Four of “Justified” that I picked up a couple of weeks ago if I can’t find anything else to watch.

Mrs. O’Leary, meet Herr Landwirt (Farmer) Himmler: 90 Farting Cows Start Fire in Germany

According to Reuters, methane gas emitted from the flatulent animals exploded in one of the farm’s sheds, damaging the structure’s roof.

I caught some of the SCOAMF’s speech on the way home--apparently it’s still going on. Thought there’d be a drinking game here, sniff.

Geez, what an a**hole that guy is.

If there were a drinking game, I suspect I’d be “laughing on the carpet” or on my way to the hospital by now.

I’ve managed to avoid even various live-bloggings of tonight’s lecture, which is apparently still going.

Hai, Sven!

It appears that Boner [sic] is a lovely shade of orange this evening.
