This is why I don't go out on boats, except for the ride to Avalon. I've been offered fishing trips from guys at work and there's no way in hell I'd ever go. Whale watching? Not a chance. When I was a teenager, my dad knew a guy with a sailboat. We all went out on the Bay for a day of sailing. I promptly threw up the Dramemine and fed all the fish. I was so dizzy that I had vertigo for two full days after. I had a hell of a time riding my bicycle to throw my paper route. Not only that, but my parents are taking us on a cruise next year to Alaska. Call me daring, call me dangerous, call me foolish, but I can't wait to go.
Mike Blowers does the color on the radio for the Mariners. In the pregame the other day, he predicted that Matt Tuiasosopo would hit his first major league home run on a 3-1 count. Here's the link to the radio clips. Mark sent me this.
At the branch I work at for most of my shift, they have a small fridge that I keep a soda and a Lipton Diet Ice Tea in. I mention it by name because when I got to the warehouse tonight I saw a half empty bottle of Lipton Diet Ice Tea on one of the stanchions. OK, which one of you motherfuckers drank my ice tea? As I was doing my work I dwelled on it and decided to fix whoever did it. So, I peed in the half full bottle. Not a whole lot of pee, but enough. That'll fix em. I went to put the bottle back in the fridge and saw my bottle of tea. Oh shit. I went into the bathroom and dumped the tea in the urinal and washed out the bottle, putting it in the trash. Boy, was someone close to a surprise. Still, its almost a shame that someone didn't drink my tea. I had them all ready to be fixed.
“Not only have the 'followers of Christ' made it their rule to hack to bits all those who do not accept their beliefs, they have also ferociously massacred each other, in the name of their common 'religion of love,' under banners proclaiming their faith in Him who had expressly commanded them to love one another.”
-- Georges Clemenceau, In the Evening of My Thought (Au Soir de la pensee), chapter on "Gods and Laws."
According to this article, out of 763 "sneak and peek" warrants allowed by the Patriot Act, (but IMHO direct violations of the 4th Amendment) only three of them were done to "terrorists." Most of the rest was used in drug cases. Wasn't this sold to us as a tool in the "war on terror"? Yeah, I thought so. More like the "war on the Constitution."
Here's the link to a German trucker in Sweden who couldn't keep his hands off his manhood and crashed while, well, you know. And, though this is the pic that came with the link, I don't think they're related as the pic looks like it was taken in a parking lot. And, we all know what it should say on the side of the trailer.
Even if I had the chance to hunt with naked girls, I still don't think I could do it. I'm too big of a sissy to kill what I want to eat, and I guess that makes me a hypocrite for paying others to do my animal killing for me. I'll eat them, I just won't hunt them down.
I like my penis. OK, that's probably no big surprise. But this guy though he could make his longer by using a weight on the end. And, the fire department had to come and cut it off. His penis swelled up to 5 times normal size. There's no way in hell I would ever, EVER, do something like that. Ever.
Nicole has had a couple of false alarms, but she's close to having her third baby, my next grandchild. Unless he comes knocking within the next day or three, Sandra says he'll come early next week. Nicole is ever so ready to have this baby. So, I'll let you regulars know when I post pics on the grandbaby blog.
I've read in more than one place that gun sales have gone up since Obama took office. And Rich O sent me a link (that I saw on Yahoo) that says ammo is of short supply these days. Some people are genuinely afraid that Obama is coming for their guns. Charlie sent me this.
According to Xavier, he saw this on a truck on I-70 in Kansas City the other day. I post this for Rich O, who emailed me the other day to say "the South will rise again." Jesus, what a bunch of nutballs.
Its an awfully big assumption that the 72 virgins are heterosexual. I don't know where in the Koran it says this. So, you kill yourself in some "glorious" jihad and it turns out you don't get what you hoped for. And, it a martyr's death is so great, why don't the leaders do it? Certainly if Osama Bin Laden blew himself up while killing Americans, wouldn't that be a glorious martyr's death? Actually, I pretty much believe that once you're dead, that's it. So, these idiots die for nothing.
We had a case like this in Binghampton NY, on the trip. I don't know why a ball team sells or gives away balloons, but these idiots did. So, about three rows in front of us this group has a couple of balloons that are blocking our view of the field. Of course they don't seen to know, or they don't care. We ask them to move the balloons and I didn't quite hear what was said, but George got heated in a hurry. We eventually moved into better seats and watched the game in peace.
This blog is for me (Joe) to keep in contact with my friends and family who I don't see too much of because I work nights. If you're wandering by checking out the blog from the Internet, well, you're welcome too, I'm 50 years old and live in California. I'm married with two bonus daughters and three grandchildren. I write about sports, scooters, vacations in the RV, my atheism, funny pictures, and pretty much anything else I can think of. I welcome all opposing views as long as you can keep it civil, my mom does come by on occasion. And, as always, the true focus of my life is my marriage to Sandra and fulfilling The Plan. Though the blog is in the top 5.
