Oh well to scribble I go.  Really.

59 re: burning tower if you look at the video of the fire in its early stages, it looks like something super flammable (or inflammable) is going up. Like fuel. Would not be surprised if they have diesel tanks for their generators on the building or something along those lines.

64 HNY my fellow morons!  Sadly, this upcoming year will be worse for me than last year (baked into the financial cake) - looking forward to 2017!  You guys provide a ton of laughs and support, because it's great knowing you are there and of similar mind.

Ace, thanks for all you do.  The time between Dec 20th and Jan 5th-ish is an intellectual wasteland for me because I miss the podcasts a lot.  I listen to them constantly because of tinnitus - it helps distract me from the ringing/hissing.  Sadly, I can almost replay them in my brain word for word!

On New Year's Eve, Marilyn stood up in the local pub and said that it was time to get ready.  At the stroke of midnight, she wanted every husband to be standing next to the one person who made his life worth living.

Well, it was kind of embarrassing. As the clock struck, the bartender was almost crushed to death.

I hope you're wrong too, Cheri, but I feel the same way.  And I actually think we're not going off the cliff, but rather almost hitting the bottom.  We essentially have no functioning Constitution.  It's that bad.  And I fear the tsunami, the flood, the mass movement of humanity into the USA by those that have no ties and no desire to be American will ultimately be our downfall. 

On that happy note, Happy New Year, Horde!

109 Word is that Obama will issue an Executive Order next week to close the so-called gun show loophole for background checks. This isn't actually about gun shows but involves going beyond the statute to define who's "engaged in the business" of selling guns. Currently, consistent with the statute, you don't have to have a Federal Firearms License (FFL) to sell guns as a hobby. If you're an FFL you have to run background checks. If you're not an FFL you don't need to run background checks, whether you sell at a gun show, out of your garage, or anywhere. Many thought that Obama would go further and issue an Executive Order to use the No Fly List to deny background check approvals. Closing the "gun show loophole" will have nearly zero effect on reducing crime let alone stopping terrorist attacks. In the real world, our "common sense" background check system is ineffectual at stopping bad people from getting guns. It's main benefit is that when the FBI releases the number of background checks it ran in the prior month, it provides a ready way to estimate gun sales for the entire nation. They've been way up under Obama. Best gun salesman ever! So this is a Silly Feel Good for the anti-gunners who are mostly in ten or so states that are already Deep Blue, but it will rile up Gun Owners of which there are over 100 million, nearly all of whom are potential voters. Can't wait for Hillary to jump on this band wagon. Meanwhile Trump has a hard-to-get NYC concealed carry permit. He may be packing right now.

For the first time in more than a decade, all categories of crime rose across Los Angeles in 2015 as police struggled to get control of the problem, according to LAPD data.

Violent crime in L.A. climbed 19.9% and property crime increased 10.3% through Dec. 26 compared with the same period last year, according to the police data. It marked the second year in a row that violent crime rose, but the first time since 2003 that both violent and property crime rose.

"We ask people to keep this in perspective," said Assistant Chief Michel Moore, who oversees the Los Angeles Police Departments crime-tracking unit. "The city is not on fire, the city is not falling into the ocean."

186 What most amazes me about the establishment GOP and the mainstream media is that their basic assumptions about the base is we are racist, homophobic, poorly educated, nationalistic to the point of being know-nothings, and unable to earn a living in the complex world economy we live in. Here is the ostensibly data-driven journalist cadre at FiveThirtyEight in a published chat saying most of these things. It, by rights, ought to be terribly embarrassing to be so ignorant and mean-spirited but they say these terrible things in almost clinical terms. The GOPe would agree completely with every line. To oppose the MSM definition of polite society, to defy the leftist political consensus is to be a racist nationalist dumbkoff. Plain and simple. You would think they'd be embarrassed to see these thoughts in print. http://53eig.ht/1Ji2JP9

201 Open carry starts tomorrow in Texas. I don't see reason why you would want to open carry To watch libs heads explode. I was half tempted to sit outside the Valero gas station at 11:55 tonight and wait until midnight to walk in open carrying. Then thought nah, too much effort.

209 I don't know why people would want the world to know they are carrying. Seems to me that that would just mark you as the guy the criminal/terrorist/nutbag would take out first. Honestly?

Just in the past couple of weeks, we have found the right place to live, cemented good jobs, become cautiously optimistic. 2016 has great promise, and with a bit of luck and lots of hard work will be the year we finally break even and maybe get a little bit ahead. God's peace to every moron and moronette out there: may He bless us all with that which is more valuable than "things" and more eternal than politics, "identities" or the sins we seem so intent on exploiting. Lead us NOT into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

To the left, the Government is a means of shifting incomes, from employed young and middle-aged family people to everyone else. That's the basic job of Congress for the lefties-- funding social programs. They come right out and say it. Amazing. Just amazing.

273 "Here is the ostensibly data-driven journalist cadre at FiveThirtyEight in a published chat saying most of these things." It's a roundtable where the panelists continue to dismiss the idea that Trump can win the nomination, let alone the Presidency. Don't they know how to read polls. I'd put Trump at 75% to get the nomination. Instead they "analyze the phenomenon" of Trump by comparing him to George Wallace and Pat Buchanan. MSM sure has a blind spot.

.Here in Kentucky there is no permit required for open carry and it is actually more common than you would think.  I even see people openly carrying into the Post Office which is a huge Federal no-no, but no one there says a thing.  Signs all over the place along with cameras but not a peep from anyone there which I find refreshing.

371 Well, also, something to keep in mind -- FFLs have to keep logs of all guns sold / bought. So maybe this a stealthy attempt at a registry. I don't know. Posted by: Harry Paratestes at December 31, 2015 03:28 PM (AkOaV) They've already got enough lists to make tons of gun registries out of - enough to go knocking down doors when the time is "right". From anyone who ever had to file for a background check (which we all know they've kept nice and warm) to the tax records of gun sales (the way Pennsylvania makes its "gun registry") to carry licenses to FFL interstate transport records to search records of internet postings of anyone who ever mentioned anything not bad about a gun. There are precious few people who have guns who don't show up on or more of those ad hoc registries (and will never be able to be taken off, since they "aren't really registries").

375 It seems appropriate at this time and in this thread to take a moment to remember those we have this year lost. I am speaking, of course, of Buzzion. Gone, but not forgotten. We can still hear the echoes of his snickering ridicule. We can still see his staggering footprints stumbling out of a dive bar. We can still smell the aroma of his wake up breath wafting through our empty corridors. And yet, is he truly gone? I like to think that whenever two drunks are elbow each other while telling dick jokes, he is there. Whenever people make retching sounds while watching a Democratic debate, he is there. Whenever violence threatens to erupt while discussing the relative merits of crossbows and longhorns, he is there. Whenever debate erupts about as to the propriety of the term "assless chaps, he is there. Whenever a Brian Dennehy movie graces the airwaves, he is there. Whenever a man suggests that one should "get this" or discusses the virtues of sweater puppies on elbow models, he is there. Buzzy, buzz on, dude, buzz on.

425 On the Open Carry thing. Some perspective. I think about six U.S. States have enjoyed Open Carry for some time now. If memory serves, Mississippi is the most recent member of that club, with Texas joining in a mere few hours. That I know of, there have not been wanton gunfights, much less WWF matches with Open Carriers having to put the Double Suflex on some poor miscreant whut tried to make an ill-advised grab. If there were such incidents, they don't seem to have made it to the anti-gun websites, and the pro-gun-rights sites would damn sure have noticed those incidents, too. And one or two such incidents, do not a pattern or trend, make. So, what's learned is that Open Carry will result in no greater disturbance among the sheeple, than has Concealed Carry. And, it serves to "normalize", to inure said sheeple into becoming used to and eventually un-fazed by the mere sight of an openly carried weapon. In other words, the free exercise of our Rights will henceforth be no more a point of surprise or objection, than sitting on a park bench and reading Orwell's "Animal Farm" in public. Just don't get caught going to a Tea Party rally though. The anti-gunners might not get you, but the IRS is likely to take notice. Happy New Year, Horde! Jim Sunk New Dawn Galveston, TX p.s.

437 Here is a New Year's Eve thought to ensure a great new beginning now. Saint Paul says, "...walk in newness of life" (Romans 6:4). What does that mean? It simply means to get rid of all those old barnacles that have encrusted you for so long: resentments, dishonesties, rationalizations, fears, weaknesses, and so on. These must all go, so that you may "walk in newness of life." When you're new, you feel like walking, head up, standing tall, for you have fresh new power. That God may reactivate your life so that you may "walk in newness of life," why not just be done with some things. Get so tired of the old, so fed up with it, that you are done with it. If you've been full of fear, be done with being full of fear. If you've been full of error and defeat, be done with it. Say, "By God's grace, I'm done with it," and take charge of yourself like never before. And for certain, it will be a Happy New Year for you. -Norman Vincent Peale, "Have a Great Day Every Day"

She wears a necklace of cartridges, too. (I insist all my dates wear those. Who doesn't?) On CNN this week, she fielded an off-topic call. The caller asked her if she wears her cartridge neklace "to remind viewers of the 90 Americans who are shot dead every week?" Without missing a gd beat (swear to God), she replied, "Maybe I'll wear a fetus next time, to bring awareness to the 50 million aborted people who never get to be on Twitter." I have misgivings about Trump, but his national spokesperson rocks!

443 As much as Ace laments the rise of Trump you cant help but believe that Trump would be right at home here in Moron and Moronette Land. May be ACE could offer Trump an Honorary Moron degree or something...it would be nice to have a bona fide AOSHQ Moron in the Big House in DC.  If he really laments Trump, he could try to get him on the podcast.

446 417 405 Am I the only one who refuses to do things for new years? I used to go out but I hate the drunk people everywhere, the DUI checkpoints, the ludicrous cover charges at bars, and the jacked up drink prices... Posted by: Harry Paratestes at December 31, 2015 03:44 PM (AkOaV) No, I hate it too. I used to prefer small parties at the homes of friends and that's certainly preferable to being in the bars as far as I'm concerned, but over the last few years I haven't even done that. After Christmas, I feel sort of partied out for awhile and the weather is usually crappy here anyway, so I'm just fine with staying at home and watching old movies or whatever. I was invited to a party up in Door County (about 2 and a half hrs away) tonight and I begged off. My night vision isn't what it used to be and I don't want to navigate dark country roads on NYE. And I can't stand some of the people who are going to be there and it's too cold to step outside and escape them, the way you can in the summertime.

475 "My night vision isn't what it used to be and I don't want to navigate dark country roads on NYE."

I quit going out for NYE after the plague of Mexican illegals hit.

I swear, drunk driving is the unofficial national sport of Mexico.

Serious drunk driving. Illegals aren't much for two glasses of Chardonnay.

The male illegals in particular will drink straight through two entire cases of Tecate, get *massively* plowed, climb into their beater cars, and do stuff like drive the wrong way with no headlights.

Victor Davis Hanson, with his rural farm here in Mexifornia, writes about constantly having to pay the local wrecker to come pull crashed beaters out of his back forty (the illegals just abandon what's left of the car where it is) and then pay again to repair the fence that was smashed down.

BTW - your UN at work:

International Year of Pulses 2016

The 68th UN General Assembly declared 2016 the International Year of Pulses, as in beans, not as in "+".

The IYP 2016 aims to heighten public awareness of the nutritional benefits of pulses as part of sustainable food production aimed towards food security and nutrition. The Year will create a unique opportunity to encourage connections throughout the food chain that would better utilize pulse-based proteins, further global production of pulses, better utilize crop rotations and address the challenges in the trade of pulses.

It was a lot like crossing the Czech border in 1993.

Posted by: Cheri at December 31, 2015 04:29 PM (oiNtH) Evidently, cops don't have to stop you to give you a ticket, anyway. They can just send you a ticket in the mail for whatever infraction they think you are guilty of. That's what those red-light cameras really mean. I don't know why the cops bother stopping anyone anymore. They can make so much more money just taking down license plate numbers and sending out tickets of all sorts. And the red-light cameras say that cops could have been doing this all along.

611 Someone told me once that a motorist is under no obligation to roll down their window when stopped and can just yell through the window? Sounds strange, anyone know if it is true? Posted by: Cheri at December 31, 2015 04:29 PM (oiNtH) yes its true. For DUI checkpoints only. The way SCOTUS ruled on the law is that DUI checkpoints are NOT a violation of the 4th amendment since no one is *required* to participate. Cops need reasonable suspicion that a crime has been committed to pull you over. a DUI checkpoint has no reasonable suspicion. So you are not obliged to take a field sobriety test or anything else. However, my buddy was taught in police academy in CT to break the window, drag the person out of the car, and charge them with impeding an investigation if they refuse to comply at a checkpoint. So... if you want to be the test case, i'd recommend trying it. Otherwise, I'd recommend rolling the window down at least somewhat.

634 I remember reading once that when Clinton was fresh out of Arkansas he wasn't known for his good table manners (which has everything to do with how he was raised, and not the state he came from). He'd cram food into his mouth and polish off an apple with two bites, core and all. And the lib author celebrated that as a sign of a "lust for life" (if Clinton had been a Republican of course, it would have been the sign of a piggish hick..) It's so unfortunate that Billy Jeff never choked on those apples. Hill would probably be working for the Southern Poverty Institute (dreaming of power, but never wielding it because she wouldn't have gotten anyplace without Bill) and living with another sour-faced lesbian.

From anyone who ever had to file for a background check (which we all know they've kept nice and warm) to the tax records of gun sales (the way Pennsylvania makes its "gun registry") to carry licenses to FFL interstate transport records to search records of internet postings of anyone who ever mentioned anything not bad about a gun. There are precious few people who have guns who don't show up on or more of those ad hoc registries (and will never be able to be taken off, since they "aren't really registries").

650 Pro Tip: What the law specifically says about your rights during a police stop doesn't mean squat during an actual police stop. Example: Try refusing to give your permission for a search of the car when there's no probable cause for a search. Prepare to (1) wait an hour while they leisurely locate and transport a K9 dog -- hope you didn't have to be anywhere!; (2) watch while said dog cavorts across the expanse of your previously flawless and undamaged hood, roof and truck lid; (3) be amazed when the dog appears to react to something, providing "probable cause" for a search; and (4) tear up as officers rip the shit out of your trunk and interior to teach you a little something about compliance and respect. IOW, you can't win. You can only avoid being stopped at all. If you are stopped, be cooperative.

677 One of the reasons I don't drive anymore. No license, no car, not worth it. Plus, money California doesn't get from me. Posted by: eman at December 31, 2015 04:55 PM (MQEz6) Not having to drive was one of the great advantages of living in the city. Sadly, it didn't outweigh the rest of the negatives. The feral government has made air-travel a much less-than-attractive option these days, too. It's all ridiculous, but the left loves the idea of all forms of transportation being hassles and problems. The left likes their subjects to stay put and only go where the left tells them to go.

Not so much. More than anything else, Shrillery's decision to stay with Bubba is an act of pure calculation. Despite his near-total lack of competence, innate selfishness and dishonesty, Billy Jeff is still revered by zillions of Democrats. More than any president in modern history, he transcended mediocrity and is judged far more kindly -- and positively -- than he deserves. She's still ridin' on that boy's coattails.

Leaving him would have made Ma Clinton look like an ungrateful bitch. And would probably have given Choom Boy an excuse to pick someone else as SecState. And would have cut her off from much of the flow of Big Bucks that has made the Clinton Crime Syndicate bigger than U.S. Steel!

I don't think they would dare stop you, my dear.  As to church services on New Year's Eve, I have never ever understood that.  I grew up with it, I went for years and years, the man is doing a church service tonight in fact, but to this day I do not understand the reasoning behind it.  New Year's Eve is no more a religious holiday than next Wednesday.  I have no objection to people worshiping any day or hour that they choose.  I just don't understand why clerical staff needs to be brought into it, nor why as a teenager the only New Year's Eve party I was allowed to go to was bowling after services at the First Baptist Church.  It was less than fun.

She was one of the very worst drivers ever born. She didn't learn until she was almost 30 and whoa baby, you could tell it. She was also very beautiful, so she got stopped a lot and never got tickets, so her retort when someone would comment on her driving was, "I get stopped all the time and I never get a ticket, so how bad can my driving be?" The reply always was, "L---, did he ask for your phone number before he asked for your license and proof of insurance?"

730 Posted by: grammie winger, sign of The Time at December 31, 2015 05:03 PM (dFi94) I think the custom originally came from Black churches and the history of watching and waiting for the Emancipation Proclamation issued Jan 1. 1863. I think it's great for people who feel thus inclined to gather with other believers, thank God for blessings during the past year and to seek God's face at the end/beginning of a New Year. Churches that have such a service often have the bulletin done several days before or don't have a bulletin. I can understand it being boring as a teen having no party but a bowling party, but I never went out as a teen for NYE-not even for a church service, so anything else is a cut above. that :^)

The church I go to pretty much blows off anything after Christmas Eve.  They fly the coop from Christmas Eve till the first Sunday in the New Year.  So we didn't even have regular church services last Sunday.  It's kind of our annual gift to the dozens of staff and about 400 volunteers that are involved in every service.  Give them the week off plus, so they get a break.

Prepare to (1) wait an hour while they leisurely locate and transport a K9 dog -- hope you didn't have to be anywhere!; (2) watch while said dog cavorts across the expanse of your previously flawless and undamaged hood, roof and truck lid; (3) be amazed when the dog appears to react to something, providing "probable cause" for a search; and (4) tear up as officers rip the shit out of your trunk and interior to teach you a little something about There was actually a Supreme Court case that came out, U.S. v. Rodriguez, that addressed this very thing. Basically it it ruled that it is Constitutionally impermissible to extend a traffic stop past its initial purpose for a K9 unless the officer develops additional reasonable suspicion.

Trumps strongest Republican supporters: Registered Democrats?
by Allahpundit

[Trump is] a man whos blended nationalism, center-left economics, and Jacksonian foreign policy into something that tastes better to members of the other party than it does to conservatives.

There's no disputing that Trump is the favored candidate of the white nationalists of the alt-right.

How do you build a conservative party if a significant chunk of it is Democratic? Or do we no longer care about conservatism so long as we've got nationalism?

910 The thing is about a lot of these indoctrinated millennials -- I've found most are just repeating something they heard somewhere and thought was clever. And if you talk to them in a serious way (and coming from another millennial like me, maybe they are more willing to listen), they are very willing to hear you out. They all think the government and their teachers and the media are full of shit anyways, so it's kind of easy to say "yeah, that 1 in 4 women are raped thing? They included "unwanted sexual advances" in the question." then show them the question on your phone. I like to chip away at one or two of these assumptions with people at a time. I think I've been doing pretty well in getting people to think. But I'm not an in your face type of person when it comes to politics. I'm more of a sneaky "yeah, I agree with you, but did you know...?" type

941 I just got a Happy New Year e-mail from Amazon: You made 2015 a standout year. Here are five fun facts that showed your Amazon style.[[/i] I scrolled down, thinking they were going to say something about the purchases I made this year. 1. You spoke to the future, and it spoke back. You made Amazon Echo the #1 best seller across all $100+ products this Black Friday. I don't even know what Amazon Echo is, and I didn't buy anything on Black Friday. 2. You were young at heart. For the first time ever, coloring books made our 2015 Best Sellers in Books list. I did not buy any coloring books. 3. You gave binge watching a thumbs up and streamed "The Man in the High Castle" more than any other original series from Amazon. I've never binge watched anything, and I didn't stream "The Man in the High Castle". 4. You were space explorers. The total number of hours spent reading "The Martian" by Andy Weir in 2015 on Kindle is equivalent to more than 1,000 trips to Mars on the Curiosity rover. I haven't read the book or seen the movie. And you don't travel to Mars on the Curiosity rover. 5. You became part of the Amazon family. We welcomed more than three million new Prime members worldwide during the third week of December alone. Wrong again. I'm not a Prime member. But I guess it was nice of them to wish me a Happy New Year.

Girlfriends Dad made some comment about self defense shooting (something was in the news I think) and the sisters boyfriend goes "oh in florida you can shoot anyone you want to." and so I got in to a good, productive conversation with the entire family (and used wikipedia on my phone to back up what I was saying) about what self defense laws actually look like. And I said something like "yeah, the media lies constantly about this kind of thing. They're just trying to make narratives and sell advertising. Its dangerous though -- i wonder how many people in florida actually think thats the law? The media can get people killed!" And I had everyone agreeing with me and saying "oh, I had no idea. Wow."

First of all, whatever the orange floral thing is that you use for your avatar (is that what it's called?) - is stunning.  Stunning.  I think I love the close-up photos the best.  I am partial to floral design, so I am especially appreciative of those up-close insights.  Thank you for directing me to them.  Please keep your resolution.

1014 I know I've mentioned this before, but if you've got an emergency fund, and you're eligible, keep it in some good CD's in a Roth with your bank. Why? What do CDs pay these days? 1%? Not worth the hassle of having to trust the bank and not having truly immediate access to the cash (or the physicals) - which is what an emergency fund should really offer. The only argument for keeping money in a bank is either one is getting good interest or one trusts the bank. These days, neither of those exist. There is no reason to keep money in a bank outside of it being too much to trust at home or the minimal necessary to do certain electronic business (or other such need for having verifiable cash). At 0% interest, banks are next to worthless institutions. And if the lefties have their way, you won't be allowed to take it out and will have to eat the negative interest they are so excited to soon force on people.

1076 Yes. And cat was doing it until they opened doors hoping mouse would run outside. Instead cat went out door in search of more mouses I guess. Posted by: olddog in mo at December 31, 2015 07:10 PM (c/3OG) My cat does that too. Comes inside with a life mouse, drops it, then moves on to whatever else it is he does. And I'm stuck trying to sweep the mouse outside with a broom while the mouse runs and hides under the oven or whatever. And I try to check him before he comes in, but he now puts the ENTIRE MOUSE in his mouth. Sometimes the tail will be stick out, but usually I have no idea he has a mouse until he opens his mouth and drops it. I'm like dude, you're lucky that mouse didnt just bite the inside of your mouth, you idiot. Sigh.

There's an Old Year going, going Away in the winter drear; His beard is like snow, And his footsteps are slow: Good by to you, weary Old Year! The New Year comes smiling, smiling, While the Old Year hastens away, Unwilling to be The one sorrow to see, In a world so enchanting and gay. The Old Year goes sighing, sighing; Once he was a baby Year: His welcome was glad; But his farewell is sad; He has nothing to stay for here. There is always a New Year coming; There is always an Old Year to go; And never a tear Drops the happy New Year, As he scatters his gifts on the snow.

They're much more... well, basically in my experience they just don't give a shit and do whatever they want. Posted by: Harry Paratestes at December 31, 2015 07:19 PM (AkOaV) A recent sidebar article said that there was genetic evidence that dogs were first domesticated about 33,000 years ago. Cats didn't start hanging around humans until the beginnings of agriculture, less than 10,000 years ago. So yes, cats are definitely "wilder" than dogs. My Kira is very affectionate, but she knows who the real boss of the household is. (Hint: It ain't me.) I've said before that house pets have an almost parasitic relationship with humans. We provide them with nutritious food, clean water, medical care, shelter, and a safe place to sleep. All they have to do in return is be adorable. They got us figured out.

Posted by: Carol at December 31, 2015 07:26 PM (sj3Ax) I did not experience any, and it was very effective. However, because it is an immunosuppressive treatment, you do have an increased risk of infection and so forth. They test you for TB before starting you on it.

as soon as the BBQ Pagoda II project is done, at least the roof part, the reloading bench will be finished, presses installed, and a final decision on the shotshell press made. thinking Dillon for 12/20 gauge, and a simple hand press for the 10 gauge, since we only have one.

so far, anyway. ;-)

1286 Someone could donate an entire RCBS catalog's worth of reloading gear to a library, and all they're going to do is sell it at the next fundraiser. They'd never loan it out, the liability would be insane. Cletus goes and blows his finger off, mis-pressing a primer into a case, and heeeeeerrrre come the lawyers, like a swarm of locust. You'd do better to run an ad in your local paper to form a co-op of folks interested in reloading, come up with some rules, membership dues and the like, just to cover wear, tear and parts replacement(s), as needed. Besides. 99% of degreed librarians are mega libs, and would piss themselves if they had to deal with icky, gunnie reloading gear. Plus, they'd never know what Dewey Decimal code to put onto the Lee priming tool. But maybe.....just maybe, you could fool 'em and tell them the Dillon 650 is a good library asset, 'cause it's a progressive loader? Jim Sunk New Dawn Galveston, TX

Another wants to just go cremation and dump the ashes wherever whoever gets stuck with the job thinks will do. And then, there's sky-burial - something about that really appeals to me.

1384 Yep, mass graves are what would be done if it got bad enough. They did that in Haiti, and in other mass casualty disasters.

  That seems horrible, but when you've got bodies stacked like cordwood, bloated and stinking, it becomes the most expedient thing to do to get them out of there quickly.

    It's a psychological thing, too. It's just awful to have to walk around seeing bodies as far as the eye can see.

1386 I hope all of you enjoy new years. I've got something wrong with my digestive tract that makes me afraid to eat more than one or two light snacks a day because of the discomfort. I've been complaining to my doctor about it for two years and it's only gotten worse. Doc finally gave me an upper GI and some pills in the last few months but it has only gotten worse. I saw the Doc yesterday and was told they'd set up some tests for me. So this morning I got a message from the hospital. "We got an request from your doctor for an urgent test for you but we're not sure if we can see you until tomorrow. Here's a phone number if you want to find out what's going on." I didn't listen to it until after 5 o'clock so I guess I'll call back tomorrow. No word on what the test(/s) will be, if fasting is required, etc. So it sounds like the "urgent" appointment they were supposed to set up for me is now up to me to make. Assholes.

1391 In case you are here or come back, Carol, i have been on Humira for six years for Crohn's after a major bowel resection. No major side effects for me, thank God. Do get tired from it sometimes but (positive side effect) it also gave me a lot of energy for the first four years or so. I have seen reports of others experiencing the same thing. This is after having spent most of my life really tired from the Crohn's itself. I won't come off it because Crohn's is pretty well under control, and out of control Crohn's is one of the worst things in the world to live with. Best of luck, and let me know if you have any other questions. I will check back in to this thread later/tomorrow. Oh, And giving yourself a shot is weird but the pen makes it easier.

I don't know the answer to this but what did they do after Katrina? I think you have to assume a similar situation where you have no usable roads (at least not for traffic) into the city or within the city which means you might get a few airlifted out, but most are going to be in wretched condition.

Honestly, he isn't much of a yapper. Only barks at stuff outside the window that he wants to eat. And, all his best friends have been large dogs - pits, labs, etc. To see a lapdog try try chew on a pitbull is almost as funny as when said pit let's him think he's winning sometimes. I never liked small dogs. I kinda inherited this one, but he's the smartest, most loyal dog I have ever seen. Can't imagine him not being around.

The Zardoshi will put the body up on a very elevated platform and let the birds go at it. The Buddhist method has the advantage that there's nothing left over when they're done. Not even ashes.

He was an ex's Christmas gift from her Mom, but she got bored with him after two months or so. Probably because he came to me all the time, and I worked with him a lot. Now, I just treat him like a tiny roomate. He has a door to come & go as he pleases, an acre to run on, I give him food when HE says it's time to eat. IF I take him for a walk, I don't bother holding the leash because he trails/leads me by mere meters, and comes when called (most of the time). You know the deal.

They are sad to see. Their clothes are tatty and not clean, their teeth are bad. I've been buying wreaths from them every year now for maybe 5 years. This year they had a Boston Bull Terrier with them. It was blind in one eye, and weirdly, had a hair-lip, so that his teeth were exposed on one side. He was the sweetest little dog you ever met. He would hop up, come over and say hello, then go back and lie down at his master's feet. I asked them how long they had owned the dog. They said that they got him from the pound, and that the vet had said that he probably would not live six months. When I asked how ago that was, they said, "5 years". His name was Buster.

Thing had no nose - just two holes in the front of his muzzle - wouldn't or couldn't suckle, and was just a mess. Doc stetho's it right there in the lobby. "Got a heart murmur," he said. "You're right to put him down." Stepfather - a tough old bastard, no lover of animals - walks over, looks at the pathetic little whelp wrapped in a towel. "I'll take him. How much?"

1508 It's not the dogs' fault if they are I'll trained. I know it from first hand experience with multiple dogs. It just takes a little love and a little more patience. I would bet that Tucker knows at least two dozen words, phrases, etc easily. Heck if we were sitting around having a drink right now, and he was being annoying, I could look at him, say "goodbye," and he'd turn around and leave the room. My niece has a red min-pin, and the first time she met Tuck, she freaked. Her dog is "such a spaz!" I told her "give me Zoey for a month. She will be a different dog & you'll all be happier."

I've heard that in the episode when Henry Blake died that they didn't tell the rest of the cast that it was going to happen so the final scene is pretty genuine.  Someone can correct me when I'm wrong.

1589 Ha! Enough slivo has been guzzled to make me remember my last NYE in Boston. Some poor son of a bitch had been dragooned by his girlfriend into doing a karaoke duet of that "Somewhere, Out There" tune from the Disney movie about the immigrant mouse. I recall standing up, clapping very slowly, and howling with derisive laughter at the poor bastard as he went through that schlocky piece of shit tune. I made no friends that night, true, but neither did he.

1616 So far, every feline who has resided at Fortress VIA has been either a stray, or a rescue. I can't tell you the thousands of dollars which have been spent in the last twenty years, from memorial stones at the pet cemetery, to the plane tickets to bring five of them to and from Italy where they were born. But, they are as much family as our flesh and blood son is.
