Loved the video! Thanks for the giggles, Truman.

So true. As a woman, I get a kick outa women who wear skin tight things which are designed to draw attention to their boobs......and then get all pissy when guys stare at them.  .....It's like that old saying "If you want something to get noticed, you put it in the front window".

Yes Facebook can be your down fall.  Just busted one of my staff who told me he was having brain surgery and would be out 3 weeks.  Seems he posted picture of himself prior to going into surgery to have a cyst on his chest removed.  He has been notified that prior to returning to work HR needs a report from Dr. stating that he was not able to do his job during the 3 weeks and cleared to return to work date. What an idiot.  Also busted another one posting throughout the work day to his facebook acct for his "other job" that I was't aware of.  I swear people are stupid.

In addition, PayPal sells your personal info as well. That is why I which ace would find some other way for us to contribute to him financially.

Women are so full of it!

Before they leave home, they pray they are gonna catch some dude staring at their Feed Bags! Especially at any thing Coed! If it were a class of all women they would cover themselves up like the Middle Eastern women, because of course, they don't want to allow other women the pleasure of judging them. But if they know men are going to be their, that's when they break out the see thru mesh Bikini Tops, and the spandex mini shorts.

The Facebook thing can work both ways sometimes.

I was talking with a buddy of mine who works at a place I'd love to work at myself. He introduced me to his boss, and we hit it off. He sent me a FB friend request, and since we'd spent a whole weekend drinking, cussing, and shooting expensive firearms, I figured "Sure, why not? He's got a pretty good handle on the real me."

So a couple months later, I'm talking to my buddy, and he mentions they're trying to find a way to get an extra slot to hire me. "Uh oh", I said. "I'd better go back and delete a bunch of stuff out of my Facebook account so the boss doesn't see it at hiring time." 

"Nah, he already saw it. That's why he wants to hire you."

I did have to have an online massacre of people I work with in November, since one of them (and all his friends) are backstabbing two-faced drama-queen bitches.

33 I've no concern about Facebook because I use for only one thing: entering contests.If I wanted a personal web page I'd make one. I wouldn't be happy with the modern equivalent of a GeoCities page. I do have a Wordpress blog but I've never done anything with beyond a few test posts to test a client side tool for a friend.

And yes, I was checking out your tits. You have them on prominent display and it can be reasonably assumed that you want them admired. Yes, I know your eyes are up there but while you have an attractive face, it isn't particularly a standout example, and unless masks in public become common I can study faces all day long. I imagine guys from some backward cultures get very excited when they first go somewhere with naked female heads on display everywhere. Keep that in mind if you don't like people checking out your rack.

44 Truman, the part that makes me shake my head is that it doesn't occur to them that perhaps corporate has someone who monitors their Co. email, facebook, linkdin and keeps track of Circuit Court listings.  Hell, they can and do monitor phone calls.  These are twenty somethings, educated but stupid.

Posted by: DailyDish at December 30, 2011 07:42 AM (Tl1mu)

45 I dunno, Facebook is no more revealing than any other post you might post on the 'net, all of which are obtainable somewhere, somehow, if someone is determined to get at them. 

My attitude is to have fun and keep the FB postings light.

Unlike here where we get to call each other names and such...

Not true, Sheldon.

The natives were already subject to substantial interference by a high tech civilization and being kept in cultural stasis. If the planet was broken when you got there it's all bets are off.

We are scheduled to go to a hockey game early (6 pm) on NYE.  Assuming my husband is well enough to drive (which is looking likely) and that I can physically pull myself together, I'm determined to go.  But I'm bummed that I will not be well enough to dress like a Hockey Tart for the intermission (you know, where they usually pick some girl in hooker heels to go down on the ice and shoot a puck or whatever), which was one of my lifelong (ok, not really) ambitions.  I even got us seats next to the glass to increase the chances I'd be picked.

66 It seems I've accidentally become a member of an offshoot of the Occupy Movement. There's an Occupy Buffalo group on facebook and I was trolling their page for awhile, pissing people off. Some people added me as friends. Anyway, there was a small group of them that decided to make a facebook page called Liberate Buffalo. I thought they did it to oppose the whole movement because they finally came to their senses. They even use that photo of a former Marine dragging an occupier out on the street as their main page! I got it from here! Heh. So yeah. What a deranged group. They should know I oppose everything they stand for but they keep me on as administrator for their facebook page, mostly out of tolerance or some bullshit. It is fun arguing with them but they have such a different sense of reality than we do. They really should be studied as some abnormal sociological experiment.

What used to get me was all the people at work griping because their "first amendment rights" were violated by the company in censoring their e-mail.

He's kicking ass in a lot of polls-I think that is why he has let Perry out to hang to dry-or whatever that saying is...jeebus. He hasn't joined Perry in that VA GOP case. The ballots need to be printed January 9th and the judge gave Perry a January 13th court date. The judge is an Obama nominee... I was reading some of the proceeding from yesterday-and it sounded like the damn judge was showboating -taking shots at Perry's book... So I looked up who monied him _Obama.

Had a surprise 40th birthday party a few years ago and my wife asked my friends to bring photos and other memorabilia of my youth. What a mistake. My kids found out a bit too much about the old man. There wasn't a picture in the bunch where I was doing anything that would be considered wholesome.

91 It was after he had complained about Clinton making him use the back entrance of Air Force One, to board and de-plane, during a trip that he went on with Clinton.

The complaint was actually that, if Clinton had actually wanted to avoid a government shutdown at the time, Gingrich was close by for talks at his leisure while riding on the same plane.  A just complaint, that the media recast as 'Gingrich Crybaby.'

@77

Some beleive that Rubio is a player because he locks down the hispanic and cuban votes, while speaking and looking good enough to lock down women and moderates.

Nice idea....typical modern Republican establishment thinking.

Rubio still needs to prove him self to the base, he could do that through more experience and taking the hard line on some key issues. I would be O.k. with a Rubio V.P. pick for Newt, but not Romney......we would end up with to moderates who would be more interested in playing pattie cake with the Democrats instead of pushing for anything that represented the Conservative Movement.

You mean when he stopped doing New Year's Eve himself, right? If so, you have a point; the event has been meaningless on TV since then. But Guy's passing was the beginning of the end.

I mean really, kids. Back in the day, it used to be a really big thing on TV, but now it's not even covered on the West Coast. They merely replay the stupid ball falling in Times Square.

I am a guy. A heterosexual guy. I ALWAYS look at women's boobs... and legs... and butts... and everything else. It's wired in the DNA.

Having said that, I try not to drool on their chests and at least occasionally look into their eyes. [ha ha ha ha ha ha ha]

I find it insulting that any woman would be offended that guys DO look at them in terms of baby factories. It's what got us all here in the first place. duh. There is a point at which one does have to look at the woman as a person though. I don't care how cute she is, eventually you will have to pay attention to whether or not she's a dipstick. Getting tied to a flaming airhead liberal will cause erectile dysfunction even in a 20 year old Marine on liberty.

Still, there's any number of libtard females I'd like to grudge f*ck. But then I'm a guy. What'd you expect?

TWC was bought out by the MSNBC/GE, Blackstone, and Bain capital in 2008. That is when they went all AGW 'tard on us. The original WC founder called AGW a fraud.
