Teh Squeaky Wheel
Mariah Carey Christmas Word-Play Caturday? In April??
Pass teh crazy pills, plztks. 🙂
Glad to read that MLB yanked the All-Star Game from Atlanta; that’ll show them eeeevil gun-totin’ honkie redneck conservative bigots. ATL’s just crawling with ’em!
As Ace pointed out, “you can’t spell MLB without BLM”.
Also pleased to see there’s one fewer Jooo-hating NOI POS in this world (a “drop in the bucket”, sure…but you take your wins where you can.) That story will drop out of the news cycle even faster than FB could scrub “Noah X’s” account.
And quicker than the media spiked the massage parlor shootings.
Moar crazy pills, plztks.
Something makes me think the trouble is with the latest issue of wordpress.org
I’ve pondered the same thing, but that’s just a wild-ass guess on my part.
As of 7:00 p.m. PDT yesterday, we’ve still not heard back from the dipshit who was nearly whacked by the Ceiling Fan Killer. Perhaps the CFK finally got him.
Paddy made an excellent point yesterday re CFK’s installation. (And we know from experience that homeowners always install stuff correctly. Especially in condos.)
Plus, it was (allegedly) “FILLED WITH WATER!!” Ergo, the new roof must be at fault; that’s the only conceivable explanation. Q.E.Freakin’.D.
Is it possible that the ceiling fan could have been literally shot out of the tenant’s ceiling by an accurately aimed space laser? Has that been looked into? It would explain the water as the laser blast would have generated a fair amount of heat leading to a megacondensation event and copious amounts of fluid.
Perhaps the space laser flashed all of the collected water into steam and blew it outta the ceiling.
You may be onto something here.
(I’d call ZOG, but they probably don’t answer the phone on Saturday.)
Good morning, Brother Fatwa -- happy Saturday, GN!
We just had a rather loud explosion in the subdivision directly behind us and one house over. Huge BOOM! which shook CasaK like an earthquake.
Ran upstairs to check on LambiePieK, who had -- unsurprisingly -- been awakened. She was fine but startled; did a quick check of the house and garage and saw nothing amiss.
And then I noticed a LOT of smoke out the back windows. Went out on the rear deck; saw and heard fire in the middle of someone’s back yard. They were out there with a fire extinguisher in their hand but not using it.
I reckon some moron decided to blow out a stump and -- perhaps -- used a wee bit too much ‘splodey powder.
Holy flurking schnitt.
A rude awakening -- hopefully no one was hurt. Are you sure it wasn’t a laser blast?
I’m gonna need a rabbinical ruling re use of the space lasers on Shabbes.
(Imagines rebbes engaging in fisticuffs over how you determine sunrise and sunset in low earth orbit. Oy, my people…)
It’s amusing that corporations always take actions such as MLB pulling the All Star game, not to mention the statements from Delta, Coke, etc., when it’s a supposed injustice against leftie policies only.
Corporations, like govt, want to be involved in every single aspect of our lives, and they do it from the progressive perspective. Not a good sign moving forward.
Happy Baaad-Pun Caturday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!
Fatwa -- you have all the excitement, don’t you? Killer ceiling fans and exploding stumps. Is this revenge of the Bradford pear trees? I wonder how many windows they took out, along with the stump?
In re ceiling fans, I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before, but when we bought our house, there was an ugly ceiling fan in the master bedroom. During the removal process I learned that it was screwed to the drywall in the ceiling with a few of those cheap, plastic screw anchors -- the kind you’d use to hold up a smoke detector. My next door neighbor helped the previous owner install it some ten years prior. Oh, the electrical job was of similar quality.
Glad to see that everyone is here. I’ve got DNS issues again. This time I’m on my phone using data.
On an unrelated note, I synced all my Brave Browsers. I wad hoping that that would unite my Brave Rewards wallets, but no; they’re still all separate until they deposit their tokens in Uphold, or whatever wallet you are using.
So, on one verrified machine, I have like 60 extra tokens, which should at some point get transferred. And on one machine, I have some tokens that I can’t transfer until I get at least 25 tokens so it can be verified.
These things used to be worth a fraction of a cent, but are now worth a bit more than a dollar. So, I have about $200 worth and should get another 50 or more tokens at some point when they settle or whatever happens.
Hope you can get all those tokens sorted out and don’t lose any due to arbitrary limits.
Mrs. Paddy, Teh Older, and I went to a baseball game last night. It was the first game we’ve been to since August of 2019. Opening week tickets are normally higher, but with reduced capacity teams have increased prices significantly. At Angel stadium they have created “seating pods” in each section. The “pod” may be three, four, five, or six seats in a row and you have to purchase all of the seats in that “pod”. Total capacity was only 25%. Concessions were greatly reduced, with only a few offerings available. All the stand-alone food kiosks were closed. All food, drink, etc. had to be ordered and paid for on your phone. Beer was in cans, mixed drinks, too. Soft drinks were in lidded cups, but I didn’t see how they filled them. There were no concessioneers (is that a word?) roaming the stands. You were supposed to wear your mask unless actively eating or drinking, but most people ignored that rule. Occasionally someone would walk by and point to their mask and get people to put them back on. In spite of all of the above, it was good to get out and see a game. When standing in line to pick up my food, everyone was ignoring social distancing and no one was enforcing it. I think the majority is tired of “the new normal” and passive resistance is increasing.
Will you be going again, Paddy?
Yes, we will be. We’re hoping that as the season progresses that things will open up more.
Watched the first episode of The Chosen, Miss Harper. Thanks for recommending it. Good night, friends. God bless.
