I'm Outta Here

Uness I find a library in Shasta County that has public internet, I'll be off the blog until July 1st. Come on back then and I'll have pics and text of our vacation. Thanks for making my blog a regular stop on your internet journey.

The Beer Belly

Grant sent me this and its a hell of an idea. Not like I'm shilling or anything. It holds 80 ounces of liquid and has a pouch for a cool pack. is the link if you want one. Hell, I already have a beer belly and I don't even drink the stuff.

Its Solstice Time

Happy Solstice!

From The FFRF

“So long as the priest, that professional negator, slanderer and poisoner of life, is regarded as a superior type of human being, there cannot be any answer to the question: What is Truth?”

-- German philosopher Freidrich Nietzsche (1844-1900), The Antichrist

I knew there was a reason I liked this guy.

This Kills Me

Break has some of the oddest tattoo pics. Just look at this guy.

This Is Such Crap

Yeah, right. Jesus (who was invented) riding Dino. And, look at the coloring hints. "Flesh of Christ" and "Omnipotent Yellow." Jesus!

This Will Not End Well

The killboy tag for the bottom pic was the title of this post. And, it didn't end well for this rider, who crashed and suffered a broken collarbone, a broken bike and bruised pride. A letter writer in the Merc today said that a rider is 37 times more likely to die per mile driven than someone in a car.
Still, if you don't understand it, well, I can't really explain it to you.

God Is Angry At Mark Tindall

First, God sends a tornado by this guy's house in an effort to destroy it. When the tornado curves around the house and misses for ball 1, God then sends lightning down for a fastball down the middle and catches the house on fire. Why is God angry at Mark Tindall, owner of the house. Here's the link.

I've Not Had A Wife Do My Dishes Like This

I've been married three times and I've yet to have one of my wives do the dishes dressed like this. How does Tony Parker rate, having the scrumptious Eva Longoria dressed like this to do the dishes. Of course, Sandra can easily ask why I'm not built like the Rock doing dishes naked, so what's good for the goose is good for the gander.

A Good Quote From The FFRF

“I do not pretend to be able to prove that there is no God. I equally cannot prove that Satan is a fiction. The Christian God may exist; so may the Gods of Olympus, or of ancient Egypt, or of Babylon. But no one of these hypotheses is more probable than any other: they lie outside the region of even probable knowledge, and therefore there is no reason to consider any of them.”

Bertrand Russell (1872-1970), What I Believe,1925

I get a daily blurb from the FFRF. It can be a quote or a short piece mentioning someone's birthday or a famous freethought court case. Shame on you if you're not already a member.

This Kills Me

Poached from Grumbling Old Fart. Xavier recommended him and I've been by a time or two. The white trash stereotype looks like one of my ex sisters in law.

All Hail The FSM

A cool pic I poached from Tony's Kansas City.

Not My Cake Topper

Though I can think of a few guys I know who are this whipped.

This Kills Me

This Is Close To The Truth

Hell, Ronald Mc Donald is a deity to a slew of little ankle biters who want a Kid's Meal.

This Is Unusual

This is at a trucker's rodeo in Indiana. You don't see a UPS tractor towing a set of FedEx doubles very often, if ever.


If you google "NASCAR atheist" this blog comes up 8th on the list of links. Who would google such a phrase in the first place? I love the feedjit widgit.

A Great T Shirt

Mark D had a few of these shirts printed up, as well as some buisness cards that say the same thing. I tacked my shirt on the bulletin board behind my desk. I've already given out a card and pointed to the shirt a few times. Its hard to believe that grown assed adults behave like this. And, that's men and women. Shameful.

The Nicest People

The tag line in the 60's went "you meet the nicest people on a Honda." Scooter Scoop has a short blog on the 50th anniversary of the Honda Cub. We had a Cub when I was a kid. Somehow we won one in a contest and had to drive over to San Francisco and get it. It was like the one above, 50cc's with the leg guards. I don't recall why we sold it, but we did.
Honda still makes the Cub, though they're not sold in the USA. Honda does sell the 50cc watercooled Metropolitan, so they're not totally out of the small scooter market.

Truth From Grant

My rv has a 55 gallon gas tank. That's $247.50 at $4.50 per gallon. Then the $60 to fully fill up the propane tank and there's the rebate check.

Golf Is Water Intensive

I saw here on Sports Law Blog that the average golf course uses 312000 gallons of water a day, or 2200 gallons per golfer per round on average. So, the foursome at Muni last Tuesday that I played in used 8800 gallons of water to green the course. Think how much the desert courses use, or all year courses in arid climates. Whew!
Whether using fresh water (which is at a premium in California) to water golf courses is sustainable remains to be seen.

LIfe Isn't Fair

I poached this from Stardust. On the day I met the Sunshine for the first time, the three of us went to In N Out to eat hamburgers. The Sunshine was having a hissy in the parking lot, and she whined " its not fair." So, having just met her, I told her the biggest truism of life, "life isn't fair." She remembers that to this day.

The Truth According To Reed

Thanks to Reed for this one.

A Good Reason To Post

I looked on my feejit widgit to see that someone found the post on East Bay Motorsports by googling "east bay motorsports opinions" JBB came up as the 5th link. Good. Let's keep on spreading the word about how poorly they treated me.

What A Gouge

This is in Crane Flat, which is near Yosemite. Pic poached from pashnit.

Its No Misprint

Yep, its almost $6.50 a gallon for 100 octane fuel. I don't know if you can run this in your car or bike or not. Any ideas from my regular readers? Pic poached from pashnit.

I Don't Get It

I've found some rather interesting tattoos on, but here's one that almost defies explanation.

#1 Blog

Somebody googled "top of the world patterson pass" and this very blog was the #1 result. Hot damn.

Another Cool Dodge Power Wagon

Poached from

Yet More Truth

Poached from Nightmare.

More Truth

I guess if I believed in Hell, but as you know I don't. Still...
Poached from Satyavati.

Today's Golf

Well, its about goddamn time. I finally broke 100, for the first time since I've picked the sticks of ignorance back up.
We had a early time at San Jose Muni, who charged us $49 with a cart. Which in itself is an outrage.
Anyway, I came out on fire. I parred the first, second and fourth holes, and bogied the third. OK, only one three putt and not a shitty swing in sight.
Of course I have to have one shitty hole and #5 was it. I pulled two tee shots over the road to the left and that's OB. Finally, I got a playable tee shot and putzed around on the green (another 3 putt) to card a 10. Goddamn.
One bad hole usually leads to a few more, but I bogied the next three holes to kind of make up for the bad hole. I had a rough 9th hole with a crappy fairway shot and chip, but I shot 48 on the front with 18 putts.
OK, I've had good front 9's in the past and taken the gas on the back. I bogied 10 but 4 putted 11 and had a short stretch of shit. I bogied 14, parred 16 and bogied 17. I stood on the tee box on 18 and told the guys that I needed to bogie the hole to break 50 on the back. It was 498 yards to the hole and I hit a couple of so so shots and one good shot to be about 30 yards short of the hole. I hit a flop shot that just got on the green. Then, I hit a huge lag putt within 2 feet and made the putt to card a 49 on the back, with 21 goddamn putts. 48 and 49 is 97 and not only did I break 100 but I broke 5o on both 9's. Whew, finally.

My Crew Loves Me

It used to say "Joe's dock" but as you can see some of the happier members of my crew got the Sharpie out and made the above adjustments. Can you feel the love?

New Gas Sign

Though gasoline is still rising through the roof, (almost $4.50 where I am) diesel has dropped under $5. So there's one small victory in the ass screwing we're all taking. Thanks to Grant for the pic.

This Kills Me

My New Line Of Work

I told Sandra that I wanted to do mammos like she does. Any takers?

This Is Good

Lotta help here, huh?

Bush Hits The Bong

No wonder he looks so damn happy. This kills me.

Why An Old OS Sucks

I poached this from Pashnit. Its a Can Am Spyder. OK, I've not seen one before and googled it. The web page comes up and its shockwave. I'm running Windows 2000 for Business here at work and it won't play the flash. This in itself sucks.
But, I'd imagine I'm not the only one out in cyberspace with old stuff. So, why don't you have part of your site without the bells and whistles? Can't hear the sales pitch if I can't download the presentation.
It is a cool looking scoot.

Skin Scraper

I don't quite know what this is about, but someone's going to scrape up some skin if they lose control and fall. But, she's got a helmet and gloves on.

More Police Bullshit

OK, you're Pinal County in Arizona. You've got a highway that's pretty busy and has a lot of accidents. So, you send out the radar vans and begin to automatically issue tickets. Then, you claim that its a success as the accident rate has gone down. Of course it does when you don't add all the accidents that in fact show an increase in accidents since the radar van enforcement went into effect. Here's The Newspaper's link and here's the link to the local paper's story.
You also forget to mention how many thousands of dollars you've generated for the county using radar vans that don't increase safety. They just add revenue to the county.

More Christian Oppresion

The reports that South Carolina has approved "I Believe" plate shown above. Of course its a gross violation of the 1st Amemdment which I guess doesn't apply in South Carolina.
Not like it makes it better or anything, but they've also approved the "In Reason We Trust" plates as well. Why are there plates like this at all? Its all just bullshit.

Don't We Wish

I Love Family Guy

But not this much.

This Kills Me

OK, you're thinking a couple of college guys posing with Santa. But, look closer. They're all doing the Shocker. Its killing me.

Ocean To Ocean Highway Bridge

I poached this one from Pashnit as well. This is the old US-80 bridge over the Colorado River in Yuma. I didn't know US-80 was called the "ocean to ocean highway" before seeing this picture. I have been to Yuma, it was a while ago, 1993 I think. Long before blogging and digital cameras, which is a shame. If you look closely there's a sign on the bridge that says "ocean to ocean highway."
