While with friends tonight, they brought up the topic about ghosts/spirits. This led me to bring up an interesting point that ghost believers cannot seem to answer:

How come whenever people see ghosts, the ghosts are usually just standing there, doing nothing? More importantly, why has nobody ever seen two or more ghosts banging?

There was an awkward silence after that. But I think I made my point.

It’s like they pick the wrong side of every single issue on purpose.

I feel like we need a “terrible positions this administration will take next” pool. I’m going to go out there and say… blaming climate change, which they’ve denied, on the Democrats, on the grounds that we have always been at war with Eastasia?

Moose -The End Is Well Nigh

Actually just watched a show on PBS about this guy;

Me too. Primarily why are they still on?

Pretty late to the party, but GLOW is a fucking delight.

Wakezilla

Yeah, I really enjoyed season 1 when they weren’t trying to Orange is the New Black it. I’m cautiously optimistic about season 2

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

When you said “orange is the new black” I’d hoped you were talking about how aggressively prosecutors were going to pursue charges.

Wakezilla

I wish. Sadly, when I say OITNB it, I mean, ruin an otherwise good episode (s) just for forced drama that slows down the plot and makes me roll my eyes to the back of my head.

It boggles my mind when they do it because the real story of GLOW is incredible and the behind the scenes stuff was banana cakes with an extra serving of nuts.

Col. Duke LaCross

It’s every bit as good.

Spanky Datass

I was late too season 1 and faltered after about 5 episodes but GLOW was mentioned by someone one night while watching a band, eating pizza and drinking beer at a little bar and my oldest sister said I should stick with the show. She was right; Glad I did.

I was productive today – I fixed the knob on the back door (WD40 but we’ll tell the Mrs is was more complicated) and replaced the dog door with a bigger one which meant I got to bust out the saw for…..MOAR POWER!

Caught the 30+ minute finale of the fireworks festival here yesterday. It was insane, loud, probably extremely PTSD-inducing, and impressive even to someone as cynical and jaded as myself. Anyway, they did the bad thing where they played music along with the fireworks, starting with the abysmal Lee Greenwood “God Bless the USA” song, and within like 10 minutes they just started throwing any song that referred to the country, such as hugely pro-America songs like “Born in the USA” and “American Woman”. So I would basically get distracted for 5 minutes at a time at how inept the people choosing these songs are. It was all worth it for the 2 hours it took me to get 6 miles to my house.

I don’t know. “American Idiot” seems both ironically honest and strangely poetic for today’s world.

…such as hugely pro-America songs like “Born in the USA” and “American Woman”.

That part cracked me up.

SonOfSpam

Fuck yeah, Angels win the rubber game.

Gonna keep drinkin.

Have a great night e’eryone.

I work tomorrow so I can’t get drunk. Work already sucks without a hangover that could kill a adolecent moose. Also, with the Reds bullpen giving two games away, if I start, I may not stop.

Redshirt

Okay. Cards on the table. I have no life. I have been figurately lapped by so many people my age that if life was an auto race, I would’ve been black flagged and sent to the garage a long time ago.

I am also a huge Back to the Future fan. I know all three movies to memory. If I’m channel surfing and catch it, I stop watching it. No exceptions! I was nearly locked out of a final exam at college because I caught the last 30 minutes of Part II.

So how in the hell am I just now learning about this?!

I don’t understand what this link is.

Redshirt

Its a first draft script to Back to the Future Part II. Its a Web Archive page, but it works. Its definitely different. Personally I prefer the actual movie. Its ending up like another Part I setup.

Wakezilla

Dude, never compare yourself to others because it’s a losing feat.

As for the Wayback machine, I honestly discovered it when the Neera Tandem stuff went down.

Dammit Ohtani. You could have been on a playoff team this year.

A mere 443 feet to dead center.

He good. For real.

Do he and Trout just sit in the dugout and say “I can’t believe people think this is difficult” all night?

Mr. Ayo

I like to think Ohtani taunts Trout for not pitching as well.

True. “LAZY AMERICAN!”

I’m watching Django Unchained tonight. I haven’t seen it since it first came out and I had forgotten how funny this scene was.
(should probably be considered NSFW, however)

“Hold on, I’m fucking with my eyeholes.”

SonOfSpam

Haven’t seen it yet, but I just got a used Blu-Ray. (I am cheap)

Looking forward to the inappropriate language and gratuitous violence!

yeah right

Oh it’s got plenty of both and is a ton of fun.

This reminds me – how come there aren’t any pictures of Trump and Putin together where both of Putin’s hands are visible? And how come Trump always stops talking each time Putin takes a sip of his water?

SonOfSpam

Also, he can’t smile like a human.

Fuck, I can’t fucking believe we’re still dealing with this asshole. HE’S A FUCKING CRIMINAL AND A FUCKING TRAITOR. Fuck.

Yeah you’re right, Judge Judy is too successful, would make trump insecure.

Just got in from Dry Island, Buffalo Jump provincial park. The scenery was nice and the weather was cooperative. I’d definitely return again.

What is this strange magical language you Canadian folks are speaking?

Oh yeah! It was awesome!

A -31 finish is amazing. It just solidifies her standing, in my mind, as the Player of the Year.

I never thought I would know so much and care so much about women’s golf.
