Teh Squeaky Wheel
"I see another “bombshell” “game-changer” “pivotal moment” “changes everything” “Trump is done” moment has occurred courtesy of John Bolton. Odd, the timing of this, but there you go."
TeX is in the sticks about an hour north of Houston — give or take a bit, or a lot.
Paddy’s pretty much on the money; we’re almost exactly between Austin and Houston.
Really, I’ve been keepin’ up with y’all through the threads -- I have. Criminy, I don’t know where the days go. Maybe now with Daylight Savings, I’ll have more time. Well, at least I know we won’t have an hour to spend by the pond fishing every evening -- not if we want to get in the house while it’s still light out…
Let’s see…my two big accomplishments for the last two weeks were:
a) made it through the VFD fundraiser in one piece;
ii) made it through the vulture I hit on the country road.
And I used to think fish guts were disgusting. Good. Gawd. that was awful.
Happy Birfday to Mrs. Sven.
Prayers for everyone, even those who think they don’t need it.
Nice to see you, Tex!
Fall back; me like.
Shivery Sunday greetings from 37F Happy Larryville, GN!
Hai, TeX, Mac and Sven!
Glad TeX lived through teh VFD fundraiser (which I hope was successful); bummer about teh vulture run-in…serves the stupid thing right for carrion-on in the middle of the road. Any idea what scavenges dead vultures…walking gar, perhaps?
Happy Birfday 2/7 to Mrs. Sven!
So 250-300 miles between Houston and Dallas, right?
Manners: good morning, Fatwa, and everyone else!
I’m looking forward to watching MSNBC Tuesday night. Schadenfreude: its on the dinner menu that night.
A blessed Sabbath, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, TeX, Mac, Sven, and Fatwa!
Rain the last couple of nights has failed to come through the new skylight, so that’s good.
C y’all laterz!
Glad to read the new skylight seems to be watertight; yay!
Since I’m pretty equally disdainful of Team Red and Team Blue, I’m almost totally ambivalent about this election. While I will go the polls -- and hope the Senate gets flipped -- at this point, really, what difference does it make?
Maybe SCOTUS, depending what happens over the next couple of years. But IMHO, we really need more Clarence Thomases and Alex Kozinskis at every level of the federal court system, and that ain’t gonna happen either way.
AFAIC, U.S. elections have effectively become a “suggestion box” for slaves; neither Team will reduce the size or scope of gummint. Nor will they increase personal liberty.
Which makes everything else moot; I haz a sad.
I’m in the same boat, Fatwa, but still I’d like to see the Dems take a beating.
Testing real-time comments for a more pleasurable comment experience. It’s almost like not wearing a real-time comment at all.
No need to refresh, it’s refreshing as it is!
Hai, Blue Glove Guy; give our regards to good ol’ Jerry, plztks.
What’s a real time comment? I mean when I comment here, it’s in real time, right? Not fake time?
Real-time comments? Hmmm, I must give this a whirl!
So, if real-time comments are working, mine just popped up on yer screens without having to refresh to look for moar comments. If it didn’t, then it isn’t.
Working, that is.
Trying on Firefox, looking on IE.
Trying on IE, looking on Firefox.
Yep, it works! No need to refresh.
TSW you are absolutely brilliant !!!
Thanks, but I already knew that.
I set the time back an hour on the forum.
Thank you. I just saw your comment in real-time!
Real time test 1 firefox
Real time test 2
I see you.
Hi Mr Admin!
Real time is like magic!!!!
Yes. Teh liberals will ban it. Shhhhh.
Has anyone tested what happens if you are writing a comment as it updates?
I think that just happened.
It looks to be no problem. Thank you. The automatic update is a pain on Drudge but I have always wanted it on Teh Wheel. Very nice!!
Thanks Mac. It only updates when a new comment is posted.
This will be great for the Friday Night Caption Contest!
Gotta tell BrendaIdon’twannadoitK about this.
Test 3 googley 2X 4.6 scenario
There does seem to be some lag time where you write a comment in the comment box, it posts in the thread (real time magic!) but still appears in the comment box..
I’ll play with the timing. It’s set to update every 2 seconds. But posting seems to take longer.
It’s no big deal, Mr Admin.
OK, I gotta go. Be back later.
Yep, wheel-time commenting works!
Congratulations, Jerry and your blue-gloved minion!
I keep reading “TSWadminstrator” as “TS Wadministrator”.
My brain is a very wrong place.
You mean it isn’t?
Former state Sen. Rod Wright turned himself in to Los Angeles County jail authorities Friday night to begin a 90-day sentence for his perjury and fraud conviction, but was released before ever seeing the inside of a cell.
Wright, a Democrat, turned himself in around 9:30 p.m. and was released at 10:41 p.m. after being processed and booked, said Nicole Nishida, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
Wright was convicted of eight felonies, including perjury and voting fraud, for lying about where he lived when he ran for office in 2008.
So that’s about 9 minutes per felony.

Another Gov. Moonbeam, prison-realignment success story. BTW, be sure to vote “Yes!” on Prop. 47 to give even more convicted criminals the “Wright” treatment.
