Fatwa Arbuckle: Joooish Space Laser Operator

Happy Booze-hound Thursday, GN!

The ginormous butt-hurt over the Janus decision is delightful; makes me a little giddy, TBH.

I suspect that there will be internecine squabbles amongst public employees all over this country. Including threats of violence against folks who elect not to pay tribute to the goonyuns. (Which I condemn, but goons gonna goon.)

Huh…tried posting an animated GIF in my previous comment, which didn’t appear. When I hit Edit, the code was completely gone. Rinsed, repeated, same results.

Oh, well. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

BBL.

Sure Happy It’s Thursday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!

Edison finally finished the new underground cable replacement in my neighborhood and filled in the large hole in my front yard. Just as I suspected, they broke a sprinkler line. My choices are either to
a) find someone to give me a repair estimate and submit it as a claim, then do it myself
2) hire someone to repair it, then submit the invoice as a claim
iii) do it myself, then submit the few dollars in parts bill as a claim

iii is the quickest and simplest, but I don’t get reimbursed for my time, which I’m sure is part of the plan.

Hai, Paddy!

That sucks about the busted sprinkler.

What if you do iii) and then do a)?

Yeah…I recognize the hassle of contacting a contractor, then contacting them again and probably a third time just to get them out there. And then repeating the process to get an actual bid in-hand.

That way, you might eventually get paid for your time on the repair. But you’d still be out the time for making all of those phone calls. 👿

Continuing Life Education Dept.: Do not stand too closely behind a KorpulenceKart in a crowded check-out line. Especially if the operator has no neck upon which to swivel their fat head before they put the damned thing into reverse.

The cart, with it’s heavy batteries plus the land whale riding it has a lot of mass compared with your tibia.

BBL.

I hope the CA Supreme Court gets its collective ass handed to it by SCOTUS, assuming this case makes it there.

https://www.newsobserver.com/news/business/article213997664.html

The California Supreme Court says state laws cannot be invalidated on the grounds that complying with them is impossible.

The unanimous ruling on Thursday rejected a lawsuit by gun rights groups that sought to throw out a California law that requires new models of semi-automatic handguns to stamp identifying information on bullet casings. The groups argued that technology did not exist to meet the stamping requirements, and a law can’t mandate something that’s not possible.

“The law, which Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed in 2007 and took effect in 2013, doesn’t affect guns already on the state’s official firearm roster.”

That ****sucker Auhnold -- he’s the gift that just keeps on giving.

Hai, Mac!

Do they WANT war, poverty. crime, and global warming?

Actually, yes, they do. Good excuses for grifting from and enslaving the taxpayers.

I see that it took less than a couple of hours for the media and Dems to blame this latest shooting on Trump. A collective sigh of relief from the Left as they can now focus on destroying the Second Amendment and Trump instead of continuing to whine about yesterday’s news.

Sad news about author Harlan Ellison dying. One of my favorites about the three most important things in life: Sex, violence, and labor relations. http://harlanellison.com/iwrite/mostimp.htm
