There are always people who have to shit on something as "not good enough". In this women are probably worse than men. Instead of saying thank you to people trying to help them they have to toss it right back in their faces. To me this makes them dumb t… more »

I am so glad I am done with college and done with peons who are emperors of their little entry level empires. Fortunately for me, most of the professors at my alma mater actually cared about education and didn't feel a need to create petty rules just to… more »

The seasoned cat owner, when faced with a steaming pile of semi-digested cat kibble will merely clean up the barf with one hand while continuing to eat their buttered toast with the other. True fact. more »

Ok kiddies it's quiz time! Spit out your gum and start chewing that eraser instead because I have a question for you! Ready? Under what circumstances will you pay $160 for 200 pages of Xerox copy? Ok, ok, yes it's double sided AND in color but a sta… more »

And no, I'm not talking about 'Shaft'. Russia has invaded Ukraine. This isn't news. This didn't happen today. It happened back when they took Crimea and repeatedly since Putin has been happily handing out arms to the local yokels near his border. My… more »

Down on Downs

Before I start I'm going to say this post might offend some people. To this I say "I'm not sorry". If you disagree, that's fair, you're entitled to your opinion as I am to mine. Go post your views on your blog, or in the comments. The Oxford professor… more »

I'm sorry but did I hit a timewarp during my drive upstate? Because it fucking feels like the 1900's here. At any time day or night a siren will slowly crank itself up to a full wail reminiscent of nothing so much as an air raid siren. Screaming at full… more »

Not One Incident

In my life, the change in my perception the police has been palatable. Maybe part of that is movement from a rural community to a suburb. Maybe some of it is a factor of growing up and noticing things differently as we age. Maybe some of it is the ease… more »

Boo hoo. Tony Stewart has cloistered himself in his home all sad-like because he killed someone on the track. Someone he could have avoided but didn't. Because he likes to show off. Apparently that makes him a "Racer's Racer" or so Joe Gibbs is saying.… more »

Particularly on the islamic assholes next door. Islam seems like a failure these days. True, most religions seem to have problems with factions but muslims seem especially dysfunctional almost to the point of the unthinkable. I would guess that, when… more »

Charitable Blackmail

I got a call the other day from a friend. He wanted to know why I hadn?t posted a video online. I was confused. Then he had to email me with the link to the video of his ALS Ice Bucket Challenge where he challenged me to do the same. I missed it becaus… more »

Rats Or No?

The really hard part of my job is dealing with all of the people who leave. I don't understand what the real problem is, but there's a serious retention problem with where I'm at. Either people get burned out or just burned or - who knows. We'd… more »

The two years is up, and it's time for a new phone. We hoofed it over to a small Verizon store, not the local one we usually frequent. This was pretty far away in Troy NY. As we walked in the store I thought "Oh good, the store is empty." Well it was… more »

Freaks On Parade

I try and avoid Walmart. I try and limit my exposure to once every few years. It feels like a honey-trap for maladroits, half-wits and freaks. For me freak is hardly an epithet but in this case I cede my membership card without a second thought. The… more »

Is still just a sports bar. Like lipstick on a pig, it's the same crappy fare dressed up with referee stripes, green and white gridiron, knee socks and breeches. The place had pretense of being a brewery but none of the quality. One bite of my meal was… more »

It Never Fails

I looked at the weather the day before: rain. I predicted our flight would be delayed at least 2 hours and was almost correct, it was delayed by 3. Yep, nothing like arriving at midnight for a business meeting at 8am the next day. The woman at the car c… more »

Fucking Look AROUND

Ya gotta love a tool who, with one hand clamped to his ear, couldn't take the requisite second to check if there was a car in the lane he decided to drift into. Douchenozzle was driving a dark blue metallic honda with a plate similar to '484 h' or… more »

No. You're fat.

I'm sorry. It's true. You're fat. Or to be medically correct, you're obese at best, and probably morbidly obese. And that is not OK. I don't want to hear about your "thyroid condition" that you've never actually had diagnosed. Or that you've got big… more »

There's a counter-feminism movement afoot in the first-world nations. It's pretty visible here in the ol' US of A where conservative mouth-dribblers have been spouting off about how women are being "insulted" by the government offering to cover their… more »

Fuck Nature

I'd let much of the garden go fallow for a few reasons, laziness being the prime. So after doing a slightly-better-than-middling job on the house I was pumped and wet to have a go at the yard. Within the first 15 minutes I was done, stung by the ear by… more »
