Buwahahahaha; good one, Mac! Caturday salutations, GN! Yesterday was -- apparently -- the anniversary of the release of “Pong” in 1972; I think the industry’s grown just a little bit from that modest start. 😉 Not looking forward to today’s Waddlemart run, but going on Black Friday was never an option. ========= Was glad to see Londoners stepping-up to the plate to deal with the London Bridge jihadi asshole yesterday; sucks that two innocent folks were murdered. I quite liked the creative use of the fire extinguisher and -- especially -- the 5′ narwhal tusk. Respect to those folks. I’m… Read more »

I remember seeing it in bars when I was a kid. My mom always took me to Jazz clubs when I was a kid because I was a musician.

Happy unhappy kitteh Caturday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, Mac, and Sven!

I’m sure the British overlords will do something to make sure the serfs are not able to deploy those defenses again. We just can’t have that!

I read where Angela Merkel gave a speech where she said that the government must sometimes remove freedom of speech to keep people free. And Bloomberg said “When we raise taxes on the poor, it’s good because then the poor will live longer because they can’t afford as many things that kill them.”

Hi, Sven and Paddy! Mac -- Perhaps that guy works for “The Cultural Appropriation Plumber.com” (We have several local outfits -- big enough to advertise on large talk radio stations, which ain’t cheap -- with names and/or gimmicks that are about that dopey. ) Just got back from Waddlemart; bah! What the hell is wrong with people that they can’t get their noses outta their smart phones while they’re shopping? Wish they’d at least “pull over” with their cart and GTFO of my way. (Much as I think America’s horribly “over-lawed”, I’m glad GA passed a hands free law re… Read more »

Out at teh bestest place ever there’s a smoking section near the main street. Since CA’s war on smokers, there’s very few places where it is legal to smoke. So this location attracts not just workers, but many of the public including the homeless who sift through the ash can looking for some butts with a bit left. I always keep an eye on them whenever I’m outside cuz hater. The other day, I’m watching this young woman walking down the sidewalk, face looking downwards at her phone, earbuds in place -- she’s about 100 feet east of me. She… Read more »

Good on you for doing something, man.

On my way to Waddlemart today, I was on a four lane divided road with a 45mph speed limit (upon which folks routinely go 50-55). Pedestrian moron crossing illegally with earbuds staring intently at phone.

Dumbass.

On the plus side, it’s good for the criminal element to have another source of prey instead of just us old farts.

If it’s for the greater good, then it must be the right thing to do. The Germans have a long history of doing the right thing.

Yup.

Dad was very appreciative of their vocational program which taught him wood-chopping at age 13.

And regaled his developing palate with countless variations on cabbage soup.

Many of those cards are from you, wheelizens. We’ve saved them over the years.

So many happy memories every time I put them up.

For some reason this didn’t post this afternoon when I tried--or I forgot to hit send: Today I started decorating for Christmas. I think I mentioned in a previous thread that one time, when I was a kid, we got so many Christmas cards that my Dad put them on a string across the living room’s largest wall. Well, no one get’s that many Christmas cards anymore, so around the year 2000 — That was the year that Harper came home to me for good — I thought it would be nice to save any cards we did get so… Read more »
