Teh Squeaky Wheel
Har! Excellent thread image, Mac.
Hope you and Mrs. Sven can see your Polish friend…and that he recovers well. (The nonsensical COVID “precautions” people are taking at this point are beyond ridiculous…especially in places like L.A.)
There’s always room, if not appetite, for moar stooopid.
The world has become even more of a Golden Corral of imbecility than I thought possible. (Which is really saying something.) To paraphrase the old Jell-o slogan: “There’s always room for stupefaction!”
Far too many humans are like a school of piranhas mindlessly and endlessly devouring cow carcasses of idiocy.
I remember seeing Medieval Knievel attempt to jump the Snake River Moat. Unfortunately, the winds were not in his favor and his jump fell far short.
Good morning, Fatwa, and Dv8 --
Sleep has been eluding me this week -- been up at 4:30 I think every day this week.
Sounds difficult. I hate it when my sleep is messed up. Which happens fairly often.
You and me both -- I blame teh Joooooooos.
Happy Daredevil Friday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, dv8 (and Harper!), and Sven!
It’s been a busy morning, dealing with parents who are upset with other people, cow-workers who don’t understand why their boss is complaining about their work quality, and vendors who suddenly decide they don’t want to honor their contract to provide services to some children.
Ottawa police readying to clear the streets.
Slow work day as Monday is a holiday -- no one is really working. Watching multiple live streams out of Ottawa. What strikes me about the protesters is that they are motivated by love of country -- they ain’t fighting for a cause or some other bullshit or some imaginary slight. Canada and what it means to be Canadian. That’s it.
You look at these men and women -- they ain’t even fighting -- they just aren’t moving and these are guys that you can tell are not unaccustomed to fighting. They aren’t cussing out the cops or throwing shit at them -- their chants to the police are mostly “We love you” or “Stand with us” and every half hour or so they sing Oh Canada. When they are arrested, they offer no resistance.
Of course, this may all change once the police get serious with tear gas or clubs.
Good night, dv8! Rest well!
