G’day, GN!

Pandas are jerks.

Because I’m not a GoT viewer -- or reader -- I had to look-up Mac’s caption. (I’m almost as deficient re pop culture knowledge as U No Hoo.)

BBL.

Oh, great:

ATLANTA -- Metro Atlanta is facing a gang problem that’s grown larger than ever before.

Gang members are involved in more than 50 percent of the violent crime in Atlanta, says Jim Hurley, the supervisor for the Atlanta Safe Streets Gang Task Force.

“We’re looking at an excess of 40,000 gang members,” Hurley told Channel 2 Investigative Reporter Mark Winne.

Through our investigation, we learned gang recruitment is at an all-time high.

“Traditionally, people didn’t want to know we had gangs. It’s not good for property values. Politicians didn’t want to admit it. Law enforcement didn’t want to admit it,” Hurley said. “But that’s a changing trend.”

Yeah…let’s just ignore a fookin’ serious problem because it might make us look bad. Never mind that ignoring increased robberies, car jackings, shootings and murders make us look even worse.

Public relations: you’re doing it wrong. Law enforcement: You’re doing it wrong. Civic leadership: You’re doi…oh, fuggit.

NSFW for language. Posted to YouTube yesterday (last night?): Idjits near La Jolla chanting “Education not deportation!” decide to block I-5; one gets whacked by a car moving at a pretty good clip:

A car driven by a white man. Wearing a white hood. With a Trump-Pence 2016 bumper sticker on one side. And an NRA sticker on the other.

Hai, Sven!

Hee!

Probably also had one reading “DIE HIPPIE SCUM!” 👿

Feel sorry for the driver.

At the speed that vehicle was traveling, that girl should have been a mangled hunk of raw meat. She doesn’t look too bad off and hopefully she’ll be OK. I wonder if she was even hit by the car or just got knocked down by someone trying to get out of the way.

There’s longer videos out there that show the police not acting all that concerned, the girl moving her legs, no evidence of blood, and even though she was wearing shorts there’s no visible damage to her legs.

I noticed her legs moving even in the one I posted.

I am completely in favor of drivers running these PLS down; if a few of them get killed, perhaps they’ll quit illegally blocking roads and freeways.

Jack Tatum is on a tear this morning. Brought home a field mouse which I managed to save and release, followed by a bird which I managed to save and release. He’s eating breakfast now, so hopefully he’ll conk out.

Well I wrote too soon--he brought home another bird and killed it before I even knew it was here. What a mess.

Good morning, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!

Cats and pandas together -- what could go wrong?

I’m guessing that young idjit in the video got clipped by the rear quarter-panel of the car as the driver was moving to the left, away from the group.

Hai, Paddy and Mac!

Made ya look!!!

Yes, you did, Mac. *Thbbpt!*

Paddy --

Suspect you’re right about the rear quarter panel.

Nonetheless, I’ve got no problem with drivers taking these PLSs out. (And, because I’m a Bad Gerbil, suing them or their estate / family for any damage the driver’s insurance company doesn’t cover. Including deductibles.)

Just went down to Snellville (next town south) and hit Lowe’s, Home Depot, Walmart and Sam’s Club -- which are all on a 1/2 mile stretch of road -- to look for a silent convection heater. (No scary giant “toaster element”, just fins inside the case which get warm and a thermostat; no fan needed.) Had one made by Lasko when I lived in L.A. and it was great and cheap to run.

None of those stores stock them so when I got home, I ordered one online from Home Depot (as they were cheaper than Lowe’s). I know Brenda would have preferred a white one, but the black one was almost 20% less for the same model (guessing they’re overstocked).

Free shipping and I’ll have it tomorrow; wo0t!

Very good post designed for libs who have now decided that the Second Amendment is important:

http://monsterhunternation.com/2016/11/14/a-handy-guide-for-liberals-who-are-suddenly-interested-in-gun-ownership/

And the closing is priceless:
“Now, it’s my blog, I get to rant because I feel like it. As a personal favor in exchange for all this helpful free advice, quit friggin’ yelling at everybody. Damn, libs, people came to a different conclusion than you did, that doesn’t make them sexist, racist, homophobic, or evil. If you hadn’t let the DNC sabotage Bernie Sanders you’d probably be celebrating your victory today. You ran a hideous candidate. Get over yourself and quit blocking traffic. Protesting doesn’t give you the right to burn other people’s property, no matter how butt hurt you are…”

Heh! I read that last night. I can’t see many libs making it past a few paragraphs without having to go to a safe space or having their heads explode.

And Tatum, the little bastard, caught another bird. This one I rescued, but that’s 3 birds and 1 mouse today. I’m changing his name to Trump.

Speaking of GoT and dracarys, apparently George R R Martin is so distraught by the election results that he will be unable to finish his Game of Thrones installment in 2017 as scheduled. Sad, George, sad. And I used to really enjoy your work.

You really need to talk to your raccoons about instructing Tatum in proper behavior.
