Even Open Thread/Headlines Thread
— Ace

I thought gloating like a lunatic monster was uncouth until I read this.

Left-wing Rolling Stone reporter Matt Taibbi: You shouldn't hold it against Glenn Greenwald that he's a biased advocate with agenda, because all journalists are biased advocates with agendas. Some are just honest about it.

For once I agree with Matt Taibbi.

I couldn't draw you a picture of how stupid this is if I had a thousand crayons and a team of artists, 500 retards strong. Sir.

Stuxnet leak investigation turns to man who oversaw the program under Bush and then Obama, our former vice chair of the Joint Chiefs, General Cartwright.

Demented fantasist randomly chooses man on FaceBook to accuse of rape; ruins man's life, obviously.

In an act of inexplicable viciousness, 31-year-old fantasist Linsey Attridge chanced upon a photograph of Philip and his then 14-year-old brother James and used it to back up a story she’d concocted. She’d done it, apparently, in order to win some sympathy with her boyfriend, when she feared his affections were waning.

Let me note something obvious: When the loudest bloc of society has declared that it is a near-crime to suggest a woman may be lying about a rape charge, a rape charge is naturally the most attractive safe-harbor for an enterprising liar. It's almost bulletproof.

And here's some perspective for you. ("Too bloody much," David St. Hubbins just emailed me.)

The root word here is "ass-crack." Once you accept the formulation of ass-cracker as one who does [something] having to do with ass-crack, well, the "creepy" part just slides right in.

Try to keep this in mind as you wait for a long ass-light to change.

111 Good evening, all you happy people. Had the sprinkler repair guy out yesterday and he fixed a couple things but said the large soggy spot in the side yard wasn't due to the irrigation and that, given that some valve in a pipe close to the house broke off in his hand, we should oughta call a plumber. Rang the landlord who send the plumber round today, He says that other than a complete inability to shut off water to the house, the valve isn't a huge deal BUT the water in the side yard may be from a sewer line and it may involve the foundation. So he'll be back with a camera to check the lines. Very glad to be a renter right now. The dogs are neurotic about having had strange persons in their house and yard for the past 2 days and will not shut up. They sound like we have an orc army surrounding us. Apart from that it's just a lovely sweltering day here.

Hey, Vitter was good on this. And I have no other Senator. Nope. Esp. none named Mary.

 

And Margaritaville is opening any day now.

 

But NW Louisiana isn't convenient for anyone, I know.

140 The Hollywood weapons exceptions in every gun law fucking pisses me off. Especially since it's patently unnecessary for Hollywood to have those firearms now that there's decent and cheap CGI. Robert Rodriguez did whole gunfight scenes in Once Upon A Time In Mexico with rubber guns and CGI in his home studio. Most prominent was the church shootout, which was filmed in a real live church, so no guns, no blanks. He talks about it at length in the DVD extras. In fact, Rodriguez noted that the biggest problem is that Antonio Banderas kept screwing up takes because he was making "pew pew pew" faces on camera while pretending to gun down the bad guys with his rubber gun. Oh, and one more thing. When you see actors on screen with guns, remember: Marky Mark - felon in possession of a firearm* Charles S Dutton - felon in possession of a firearm Danny Trejo - felon in possession of a firearm Wesley Snipes - felon in possession of a firearm Robert Downey Jr. - felon in possession of a firearm *he actually squeaks by the Fed laws because of the way that Mass. defines a felony. And of course: Just About Everyone On Screen In Hollywood - drug addict in possession of a firearm

I see we're on the verge of war, at this point.  It is time for you to stick your Labatt's Blue tail between your legs and just go home.

I've seen your posts about minor league baseball and you can save yourself, at this point.  You'll really piss me off, should you continue this line of anti-American debauchery.

...you're a smart man.  Let's not go there.  (even though I 'started it' ...lol.)

Mickey was the real Seamus Muldoon's brother,  my uncle-in-law.  I don't suppose he would mind if you wanted to be an honorary Mickey Muldoon, not sure it fits you though.

I think Vegas is a good possibility because it's cheapest to fly to--at least it used to be.

 

Dallas would probably get the most people via car.

152 #145: Good question. It would make you more appealing, to be sure, but it'd make you more appealing to both good and shitty women, so I think it'd be sort of a crapshoot.

159 He added that the “Department of Defense intends to make the same benefits available to all military spouses – regardless of sexual orientation – as soon as possible. That is now the law, and it is the right thing to do.” http://tinyurl.com/qhb8q4k I thought only the House and the Senate could make laws and the SCOTUS could interpret the law. So how come Hagel seems to be saying they made the law?
