Teh Squeaky Wheel
I’m shocked, shocked to find today’s thread pic!
Maaaaaan, I’m so glad to be home. (And sorry Jim has to deal with Teh Hellsite solo for the next few days.) Still having dreams about the job, as I did for most of my time in L.A.
We should have that place watertight sometime today, after which we can clean up the roof, apply some reflective coating to the myriad penetrations through the roof (where we use a “smooth” version of the material as it’s easier to wrap / heat-weld around vent pipes, etc.).
Happy Monday, GN -- glad you are recovering at home, Fatwa.
Watched Shelby Steele’s documentary “What Killed Michael Brown” yesterday. It wasn’t available to rent on Amazon, but you could buy it for $20. Worth $20? Maybe. It’s less to do with the actual incident and more a history of black culture and the left’s destruction of it leading us to where we are today. Steele is unrelenting in his condemnation of race hustlers, the media, and the govt policies that have destroyed individual responsibility and replaced it with systemic racism as the root cause of minority failings. It’s slow look back, offered more in sadness than in anger. Really not controversial at all.
Happy Shocking Monday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!
Fatwa -- glad you’re back home. Have the capodimonte figurines arrived yet?
Sven -- it would be great if we could get the 1619 project replaced in schools with Steele’s documentary, but we know that’s never going to happen.
Yeah, apparently considering more than one point of view is racist. Or a characteristic of white male patriarchy or western colonialism -- regardless, not going to happen.
Hai, Sven and Paddy!
Spoke to Jim a little while ago; we’ll definitely be watertight today and get a good start on the tidying; with a bit of luck, we’ll be completely finished at Hell’s Half Acre sometime tomorrow.
Heard about Amazon pulling the plug on Steele’s doc during my commute last Friday; bad look, Bezos.
No shotgun fodder Capodimonte arrivals so far today.
Any truths which don’t fit the narrative are racist.
What a stupid age we live in.
Caught a big old rat this morning under Mrs. Sven’s vehicle. Hopefully he’s the one that’s been causing all the problems under the hood.
Couldn’t have happened to a more deserving leftie: https://nypost.com/2020/10/19/new-yorker-suspends-jeffrey-toobin-for-showing-penis-during-zoom-call/
“I thought I muted my Zoom camera” -- why would that make a bit of difference, unless you are in the habit of skipping pants while working from home?
Let’s see how long they suspend him for ‘tuggin’ his toobin’.
In this day and age, he should be a cautionary tale.
He obviously didn’t learn from Anthony Weiner.
Back from a long trip. I’ll post tomorrow where it was, I lost today’s post.
