OT Thread-Clearing Out The Browser Tabs Edition [WeirdDave]
— Open Blogger

I don't really feel like doing politics today, so I'm going to feature some links and memes from back in the day. I know in internet terms that means last Tuesday, but I've been online for a long time. When I first wandered online, using my Atari ST series computer, the internet wasn't a superhighway, it was a cow path. In 20-plus years of browsing, I've bookmarked and saved a lot of crap, call it a potpourri of poop, or maybe a cavalcade of crap. Now, if I can just get this 5 1/4" floppy drive to interface with Windows 7....

Here's one of the first RPGs I remember playing. It's not quite the grandaddy of them all, but it knew the granddaddy when he was still in school. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you...

DUNGEON MASTER

DMimage.jpg

Man, I played this thing for hours, along with its sequels. All of the elements of modern RPGs are there, monsters, weapons, food, magic, puzzles....they're just a lot more....primitive. Apparently someone went through the trouble of adapting the game for Windows, so if you'd like to see what kept us greybeards occupied when the internet was still made out of wood, you can do so here: Dungeon Master Java.

Then came flash, and suddenly everyone putting out the most putrid stuff imaginable. Most of it is thankfully lost to the ages, but some were so bad they became awesome and have been preserved. My favorite is Journey: A Tribute To America. It's just so mind numbingly bad that it's hilarious. Such a big Journey fan, and he doesn't even get the lyrics right, but I dare you to watch that and not hear “purple moose” the next time the song comes on the radio.

Let's see, what's next? Oooh! The Brunching Shuttlecocks! Anyone remember that website? Lots of funny stuff, but the two funniest bits IMO Your Roommate Plays The Indigo Girls (I swear I knew that guy in college. I bet you did too) and The Island of Misfit Chinese Food (mildly NSFW).

The trolls we get here at AoS are generally pretty lame, about as much originality as dust, but there is some epic trolling going on out there on the web. Who can forget the saga of Bloodninja, who elevated cybersex trolling to new levels of awesome? I put on my robe and wizard hat. The next to last one must have been an 'ette, she turns it right back on him. Hmmm, I wonder if The Political Hat ever socks as "The Robe and Wizard Hat"?

Some threads never die. Things I Learned From my Patients, about what goes on in the ER, has been running on a doc forum for over a decade now. I scanned some of the latest pages and it's mostly just docs talking doc talk, but if you go back and read from the beginning there's some astounding stuff. Humans, am I right, or what?

Stay away from people named "Some Guy" or "This One Dude", because they for whatever reason, just punch someone in the face or hit them with a crowbar and run off. If I see them on the street, I cross the street to get away from them.

Never, ever leave flashlights, shampoo bottles, beer bottles or any long, circular object on the floor because someday you will fall on it and it will somehow, work its way up your rectum.

if the two dudes live in YOUR city, don't sit out on your front porch reading the bible and minding your own business at 2 AM unless you are praying to be shot
No matter how annoyed you are at being incarcerated dont slash open your scrotum and shove razor blades up your urethra. Now I know, who among us hasn't thought wistfully of doing that but it turns out that it's not a good idea.
Latex paint, despite being thick and creamy, does not coat your stomach and provide the same relief as pepto bismol.

I'm sure Conservative Crank is nodding his head right about now.

Skippy's List: The 213 things Skippy is no longer allowed to do in the U.S. Army

That girl has an awesome pair of....suitors.

OK, just a few political links:

Remember when we had a real President who loved this country. Yea. That was great.

I want to live in The Republic of Bill

And that's about it. This morning's OT thread is brought to you by Vladimir Putin

36 Putin was head of the KGB in the soviet union. You don't have that job unless you are the most brutal bastard in the valley. I can promise you - as he is a judo black belt from the merciless soviet judo system - Putin is personally a very tough guy.

I can pretty much guarantee the thought going through Putin's mind in that picture is: "You fckng candy ass pussy - I could have you screaming is terror in 15 seconds." Of course, as a judo black belt myself - that is pretty much my reaction to President Ten Putt also.

41 If he makes the team, he earned it, deserves all the respect I'd accord any athlete who reaches the top of his profession. And considering that every team in the league passed on him half a dozen times, makes the Rams look good. If he sucks, and his performance has been pre-season smoke and mirrors, we'll know shortly.

68 From the internet flashback files: YTMND I know that site is still pretty huge, but my hubby was into it when it was still a pretty small site and there were only a handful of memes. I honestly think it was so much funnier when it was small and relatively simple. It kind of jumped the shark for us once they started getting really bug and attracting the crazy internet traffic. The memes and gifs got to be entirely too random and/or just stupid. Still, for quite a long time my hubby had the highest rated YTMND of all time. It might still be, but I dunno cause I've not checked in a long time. It's called Hard Safety (New Trailer) and it's a riff off the Safety Not Guaranteed meme. If I remember correctly, someone got the movie voice over guy to read and record the Safety Not Guaranteed Ad for them and put it up somewhere. Hubby turned it and the meme image into a movie trailer. If you know the meme, it's hilarious.

72 Sam was a helluva college player, long before anyone knew he sucked cock by choice. So it's not like he's a total bum, he's just a project that might or might not work out. I don't really "care" if he makes it or not, but I am interested to find out.

Posted by: Lincolntf at August 30, 2014 10:04 AM (2cS/G) I don't begrudge the guy a spot on the team if he plays well and deserves it. I am just sick of all the constant coverage of him. I've had the NFL network on a lot the past couple of weeks to catch up on games I missed and there's a damn "Breaking news update" specifically about Michael Sam every damn hour. I mean, really? The dude's currently playing third string in the preseason and almost didn't get drafted and he's breaking news every hour? That's just ridiculous. The bottom line is that if he hadn't made his dick snorkeling hobby public no one would give a shit about him and he'd be just another random dude playing for a spot. Maybe he'd get one, maybe not. But the media stuff is just out of control.

80 Posted by: Lincolntf at August 30, 2014 10:14 AM (2cS/G) Yep. That was one bizarre report. I gather that the reporter-ette in question was just repeating what the players told her, but it really didn't need to be said. At all. Like I said, if he's good give him a spot on a team. But for the love of Pete the media coverage is just stupid. I've seriously seen more coverage of him than I have Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, and Aaron Rodgers combined.

81 Two golfers are standing on the 10th tee. Bill takes about 20 practice swings, changes his grip 5 or 6 times, and changes his stance just as much. "Hey Bill what are you doing? Play for heaven's sake. We don't have all day!" says Jim. "Hold on a minute, I gotta do this right. See the woman standing up there on the clubhouse porch? That's my wife and I would like to get off the perfect shot," replied Bill. Jim looks, and about 300 yards away he sees Bill's wife. "You must be kidding. There's no way you can hit her from here."

85 It was a sunny Saturday morning, and Mike was beginning his pre-shot routine, visualizing his upcoming shot when a voice came over the clubhouse loudspeaker - "Would the gentleman on the Ladies tee please back up to the men's tee, please!" Mike was still deep in his routine, seemingly impervious to the interruption. Again the announcement - "Would the man on the women's tee kindly back up the men's tee!" Mike had had enough. He shouted, "Would the announcer in the clubhouse kindly shut up and let me play my second shot!"

87 A pastor, a doctor and an engineer were waiting one morning for a particularly slow group of golfers. Engineer: What's with these guys? We must have been waiting for 15 minutes! Doctor: I don't know, but I've never seen such ineptitude! Pastor: Hey, here comes the greens-keeper. Let's have a word with him. [dramatic pause] Hi George. Say, what's with that group ahead of us? They're rather slow, aren't they? George: Oh, yes, that's a group of blind firefighters. They lost their sight saving our clubhouse from a fire last year, so we always let them play for free anytime. The group was silent for a moment. Pastor: That's so sad. I think I will say a special prayer for them tonight. Doctor: Good idea. And I'm going to contact my ophthalmologist buddy and see if there's anything he can do for them. Engineer: Why can't these guys play at night?

88 The man hit his drive behind a barn and could not see the green. His wife said, "I'll open the doors on both ends of the barn and you can hit the ball through the barn to the green". When the husband did this he hit his wife in the temple and killed her on the spot. About six months later the husband was playing golf with a friend and sure enough he hit his ball behind the same barn. His friend said, "I'll open the doors on both ends of the barn and you can hit the ball through the barn to the green". The husband said, "I don't think I can do this and I hate this hole". His friend said, "it's not that hard and why do you hate this hole?" The husband said, after bowing his head, "the last time I played this hole I got an 8!"

Well said!

Unfortunately, this has become a country whose less-bright inhabitants -- and there are zillions of them -- thirst for Historic Firsts. Hence, Michael Sam, Choom Boy, Shrillery Clinton and, in NASCAR, Danica Patrick.

None of these people would have been considered worthy of a second thought if they hadn't been touted as "game-changers," breakers-of-the-glass-ceiling or Signs of a New Day in their respective fields.

Even if they turn out to actually be good at whatever it is they do, they won't be remembered for that. Just for Breaking Barriers.

Of the four I've mentioned, one is mediocre but moderately capable (and would do better at a lower level of her sport), the jury is still out on another, and the other two are, simply put, steps backward in human history.

91 Arnold Palmer and Tiger Woods are playing the 16th hole, when Tiger's tee shot lands behind a huge, 100 foot fir tree. Tiger looks at Arnie and says, "How would you play this one? Lay up and take the extra stroke?" Arnold replies: "When I was your age, I'd just play right over this tree." Tiger, not wanting to be shown up by ol' Arnold Palmer, proceeds to hit the ball high and over the tree. Unfortunately, not high enough to clear the tree. It bounces off the tree and lands out of bounds to the right. Tiger, really ticked at this point, asks Arnold how he EVER hit a ball over that tree. Arnold replied: "Well, when I was your age, that tree was only three feet tall."

95 Tiger Woods is visiting a posh and popular southern states-area Country Club after winning the Masters Championship. He finds the front doors locked. After ringing the ornate doorbell, a club member sticks his head out and looks Tiger up and down. "Can I help you?", he asks. Tiger replies, "Yes, I'd like to play a round of golf at your club." The club member shocks Tiger by saying: "Sorry, you can't play here. It's strictly members and guests only. The city course is about a 4 iron down the road." Angered almost beyond control, Tiger straightens his green jacket and screams, "But, I'm Tiger Woods, the 1997 PGA Masters Champion!!!" The man, obviously embarrassed, hits himself in the forehead and says, "Oh, Tiger Woods! I'm so sorry! It's only about a 7 iron for you."

Hubby and I have discussed her driving abilities and agree that if she had a penis she would be a nobody and might not have sponsors or a spot in her series right now. She likely would have been drummed out of professional racing quite some time ago. But boobs = mega publicity in a male dominated field apparently. She's not exactly horrible. But definitely does not deserve all the attention she gets. People who have own multiple championships get less publicity than she does.

Whenever I'm critical of Danica's driving, I add the caveat that she could whup my butt something fierce on a racetrack. And that of millions of would-be racers.

That said, there are several hundred dudes who can outrun her any day. Twenty-five or so happen to be actively racing against her. And a fair number of those who have been beating her like a dusty rug don't have the financial and engineering/team resources -- or, IMO,  the advantage of a little rule-stretching by NASCAR -- that she does.

105 A fellow is getting ready to tee-off on the first hole when a second fellow approaches and asks if he can join him. The first says that he usually plays alone but agrees to let the second guy join him. Both are even after the first couple of holes. The second guy says "Say, we're about evenly matched, how about we play for five bucks a hole?" The first fellow says that he usually plays alone and doesn't like to bet, but agrees to the terms. Well, the second guy wins the rest of the holes and as they're walking off of the eighteenth hole, and while counting his $80.00, he confesses that he's the pro at a neighboring course and likes to pick on suckers. The first fellow reveals that he's the Parish Priest at the local Catholic Church to which the second fellow gets all flustered and apologetic and offers to give the Priest back his money. The Priest says, "No, no. You won fair and square and I was foolish to bet with you. You keep your winnings." The pro says, "Well, is there anything I can do to make it up to you?" The Priest says, "Well, you could come to Mass on Sunday and make a donation. Then, if you bring your mother and father by after Mass, I'll marry them for you."

If a woman is good enough to hang with the dudes, right on. But she should be held to the same standards as the men if she wants to compete with them. Giving this lady all the extra special attention, not because of her talent but because she's got lady parts is patronizing, IMO.

110 After 20 years of marriage, and many, many rounds of golf played together, a golfer's wife feels moved to make a confession to her husband. "Dear", she plaintively says, "I feel that I have to make a heart-breaking confession to you, I fear that it may destroy our marriage..., but I simply have to tell you. The fact is, I'm actually a transvestite". "What!?", cries her husband, and he breaks down, wracked with sobbing. "There, there, dear", his wife says, trying to soothe him, "we've been very happy together, haven't we?" "It isn't that,", replies her weeping husband, "...it's that you've been using the red tees."

114 Once, the club duffer challenged the local golf pro to a match with a $100 bet on the side. "But," said the duffer, "since you're obviously much better than I, to even it a bit, you have to spot me two 'gotchas'." The golf pro didn't know what a 'gotcha' was but he went along with it. And off they went. Coming back to the 19th hole, the rest of the club members were amazed to see the golf pro paying the duffer $100. "What happened?" asked one of the members. "Well," said the pro, "I was teeing up for the first hole and, as I brought the club down, the jerk stuck his hand between my legs and grabbed my balls while yelling 'Gotcha!' Have you ever tried to play 18 holes of golf waiting for the second 'gotcha'?"

116 One fine day in Ireland, a guy is out golfing and gets up to the 16th hole. He tees up and cranks one. Unfortunately, it goes into the woods on the side of the fairway. He goes looking for his ball and comes across this little guy with this huge knot on his head and the golfball lying right beside him. "Goodness," says the golfer then proceeds to revive the poor little guy. Upon awakening, the little guy says, "Well, you caught me fair and square. I am a leprechaun. I will grant you three wishes." The man says "I can't take anything from you, I'm just glad I didn't hurt you too badly," and walks away. Watching the golfer depart, the leprechaun says "Well, he was a nice enough guy, and he did catch me, so I have to do something for him. I'll give him the three things that I would want. I'll give him unlimited money, a great golf game, and a great sex life." Well, a year goes past (as they often do in jokes like this) and the same golfer is out golfing on the same course at the 16th hole. He gets up and hits one into the same woods and goes off looking for his ball. When he finds the ball he sees the same little guy and asks how he is doing. The leprechaun says, "I'm fine, and might I ask how your golf game is?" The golfer says, "It's great! I hit under par every time." "I did that for you," responds the leprechaun, "And might I ask how your money is holding out?" "Well, now that you mention it, every time I put my hand in my pocket, I pull out a hundred pound note" he replied. The leprechaun smiles and says, "I did that for you. And might I ask how your sex life is?" Now the golfer looks at him a little shyly and says, "Well, maybe once or twice a week." Floored the leprechaun stammers, "Once or twice a week?" The golfer looks at him sheepishly and says, "Well, that's not too bad for a Catholic priest in a small parish."

I'll bet the "illegality" was something trivial, too, like a replacement part from the wrong manufacturer.

I still remember the glory day's of "cheatin'" in NASCAR. Some of those dudes were geniuses, to say the least. And they almost got away with some pretty startling stuff. Like Smokey Yunick's 9/10-scale Chevelle, or Fred Lorenzen's "banana car." The inspectors had to be laughing when they told the teams to "load 'em up" and go away.

Happy Birthday Y - not and have a great day!

 

Went to the footy  (Aussie Rules) today/yesterday - I'm a Rugby League and Rugby Union girl so actually being at a game of Aussie Rules is unusual for me - much better in RL than on telly

 

And I discovered that Aussie Rules was invented by cricketers to keep fit during winter...

 

Just to give you a taste of Aussie culture...winter footy, 3 codes of footy here and all of them popular

 

Plus soccer which is played as soon as the real footy comps finish

 

And Way Down Here, Spring is officially starting tomorrow!

145 May 25-26 2014 /media didn't report The Religion of Peace: Confluence Pope Francis and Ecumenical Orthodox Patriarch Bartholomew pray together at the Holy Sepulcher. http://tinyurl.com/pd837qo Fifty Year Anniversary signing a Joint Declaration affirming commitment to full sacramental unity that disciples of Jesus Christ be one in the Holy Spirit. They expressed profound concern for the plight of Christians in the Middle East, reaffirming fervent commitment to respect and protect God's creation. They are committed to dialogue among the world's religions. The Pope's Mass in Old Jerusalem INTERRUPTED by Muslim broadcast prayer call, whistles and jeers. http://tinyurl.com/lzhwvd6 Bad Form. I understand the electronic Muslim call to prayer is preset. But they could have turned it low volume out of respect for a visiting dignitary. No one else disturbs the peace, electronically intruding into everyone's daily consciousness to submit to domination. Not yet. Golden Rule

147 Hey, I really liked the golf jokes. Helps that I should know a few so I could pretend to play golf. Always more of a tennis person myself. I remember back in the day, one of my favorite multiplayer games was Command HQ, fun little global war sim. Of course to do multiplayer required direct modem to modem connection, so you had to have a local friend or not mind a long distance bill. I did have a buddy who had an Atari ST. Always thought those were awesome machines. I started on a PC jr, which was pretty rough for gaming, but the leap from that to a 386 with VGA graphics was totally mindblowing. Not to mention how much better all the, er, pretty pictures from the special BBSes looked.
