Happy Caturday, Wheelizens!

At first glance, thought today’s thread pic was a flour-dredged kitteh in a wok.

Sven --

I wonder if CA’s Magic High Speed Train To Nowhere was designed from the git-go to be a massive taxpayer ripoff. Occam’s razor and all…

When I first met Mrs Sven, it was at a defense contractor in Chatsworth. The company made ruggedized printers for the military. As was/is typical of military contractors, everything was many months to a few years behind schedule. One of the projects that Mrs Sven was assigned to was a Navy job that was like two years late on delivery. One of her first meetings was with the project manager and two Navy commanders. The PM went into his usual song and dance about design issues, late vendors, quality problems, etc.. The Navy representatives sat through it for about 15… Read more »

Hai, Sven!

Happy drizzly-Caturday, Gerbil Nation! Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven! Back when I worked for Hughes Aircraft, we’d have to contribute to a contract proposal. We’d determine the number of new process documents that would have to be created, number of vendor support hours, ongoing process support, failure analysis, etc. and submit our cost analysis to the program office. The PM would look at our numbers and cut them in half. The rationale was that we couldn’t win the contract with realistic costs, so we’d low-ball it, then make up for it with the inevitable change orders (which we’d charge out… Read more »

What about income inequality, racism, and the elimination of plastic straws?

If those things are eliminated, what will the Democrats run on?

Ooooh -- #armabandsforchange (it has a peace sign on it).

Love the way the armband accentuates what a bony little shitweasel he is.

Somebody has been feeding him his daily dose of pravda.

And soy.

Thanks, Paddy!

The center image on the right is young Hogg; the armband shows what skinny little arms he has; hee!

And for Sven, an article about Spain’s La Abuela Rockera:

She issued an “I’m so sorry if I offended anyone” apology and James Woods was very gracious in his response.

I’m amused with the latest entry in the Takin’ Down Trump contest: Stormy Daniels. Do I care? No. After almost 18 months of daily portions of Trump has finally crossed the line-Trump is DONE-Trump is killing ALL of us-Trump is a madman-ETC, I find myself not caring a whit anymore about what he tweets, f*cks, eats, or says.

I did sign up today for the March 24 MARCH FOR OUR LIVES!!! Hoggapolooza in Ventura County. May go to the Santa Clarita one. Have to see if anyone else is interested.

The rain today has been a steady drizzle. Annoying. Do it or don’t do it.
