  1. We've received about two feet of snow the past few days here where I live in Michigan. This morning a female mallard flew out of the creek into my yard, thinking she would walk to my bird feeders for a meal. She sank. At first all I could see was her head poking up and looking about like a periscope on a submarine, then she pulled herself up and eventually flew off. It was quite amusing.
  2. It's a beautiful thing that we've turned the corner, although our Aussie friends are going downhill now.
  3. I'm going to join a procrastinator's club in 2009. Now what's this about Chesters and a sex worker?
  4. "I see", said the blind man. And he picked up his hammer and saw.
  5. I am. By a few years. July 29 1959. Since Newt doesn't have a #1 song for his b-day he can have this Southern Fried Classic. One of my favorites. Even Elvis sang this one. Youtube Video ->

  8. Poor Mao he was so broken-hearted, Walked for miles, but only farted. Wasted his time. Oh what the hell! At least he could sit and enjoy the smell.
  9. For what it's worth, I would have to agree with your view, although notable exceptions may have to be made on occasion for men who caused widespread misery and death for the sake of their own selfish motives. Hitler, Napoleon Bonaparte, and Pol Pot come to mind. But it seems that most assassinations occur for purely political reasons, which, as you point out, is reprehensible.
  10. No fcuking Happy Meal for you, pal.
  11. Cheers, Tony! I'm off to the out-laws for a bit of feasting and social activity. Back to work tomorrow.
  12. A scary thread you posted there, Chris. I'm not convinced that either of those dudes were truly in earnest about their women, but the responses were pretty funny, such as, "That's one aerodynamic forehead".
  13. Apparently he lost a 'nad at the Battle of the Somme. As suspected. STORY
  14. I have no idea why this dude started this thread but he paid the price for being indiscreet. The comments and photoshopped images he received from others are pretty funny, even the ones on the last pages before the mods closed it down. Apparently it's received millions of views. Enjoy. His Ugly Girlfriend
  15. Wow, where did you get that piece of pseudo-history? And do you really believe it? No, the US did not single handedly win WWI. That would be a slap in the face of all the British and French war dead and wounded, not to mention all the soldiers who were forced to live like wild animals for four years in the muddy trenches. But your assertion that US involvement had no bearing on the final outcome is absurd and completely without basis in fact. The fact is, the Germans launched their 1918 spring offensives as a last-ditch gamble to end the war because time was on the side of the Allies.
  16. Nothing like that in modern Europe? Cory, I'm shocked. You stated earlier that you didn't believe in fairy tales, and now this. You've been reading too many French newspapers and perhaps watching too much Mission Impossible. As for the USA being a colony of the UK, perhaps your'e right, perhaps not. But be absolutely sure of this and make no mistake, mister: France is a free nation today only because British, Canadian, and American blood was shed on her behalf. Don't ever forget that. I'll bet that's not part of the school curriculum there, is it? Anyhow, I'm weary of your half-truth c
  17. Hmmm, isn't that the function of constitutional government, to correct arcane laws and loopholes that cause undue harm to innocents? You seem to be laboring under the misapprehension that sensational news such as this is routine, widespread, and meekly accepted by the majority over here in the States. It is not. It would be just as easy for me to state that the Reign of Terror and Holocaust are the natural political bent of Frenchmen and Germans, however absurd that notion might be. And by the way, it is. Sure, it was murder. Hanging's too good for the parents. But quite frankly I seriousl
  18. For the sake of debate allow me to differ, cory, if I understand you correctly. The First Amendment guarantees freedom of religion, not freedom from it, if that's what you mean by secular state. The framers of the Constitution saw what happened to European states that integrated religion and politics and simply wanted no part of that. To me that means an atheist has as much right to practice his belief system as does a Jew or Christian, as long as their beliefs don't harm others in the manner of Charlie Manson, Jim Jones, or the Branch Davidians. As a side note, any mention of God in Feder
  19. Thanks for sharing, cory. Several years ago I was remodeling the exterior of a client's home and kept hearing his voice inside the house throughout the day, even though I knew he was gone. It was his African Grey parrot. That bird had an absolute mastery of his voice to the point where it had the ability to call the family dog into the room, which it often did. It was incredible.
  20. Interesting comments, all. Just like to say that Obama is the connsumate politician, a genuine poet (see quote below). With all the hype and buildup to his election I can't see how he can possibly live up to expectations. (Richard Nixon on Meet the Press, 10 April 1988)
  21. Amen to all that. You should see the tsunami of BS that we've been bombarded with over here. What a relief to see the end in sight.
  22. Very nice, Judy. Those are broad and picturesque uplands, with a splash of color. What is the name of the river and district? Do you live there or spend much time on the water? Allow me to offer a photo of my lazy cat 'Boots' which was taken in June. The muddy body of water behind him is actually a creek behind my home which jumped its banks after receiving six inches of rain one memorable evening. He couldn't have been less concerned with the state of affairs.
