Yeah, sounds about right. I should proooobably work on that... :p

Put fascists and sociopaths on your ignore list.

Quote

Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.

Today I'm doing nothing until my gf gets off work, then I will meet her parents and get them to hate me.

And here I thought you were riding with Immortan Joe on the highways of Valhalla, forever shiny and chrome.

So, some guy in a funny hat is coming to town tomorrow, and the whole city is losing their **** over it.  I'm willing to risk tomorrow, as Señor Preachy isn't scheduled to arrive until 4PM or so, but it looks like I'll be home Wednesday and Thursday.  Unfortunately, the tyke's daycare being in my office building means that I'll be spending my time off chasing an 18-month-old around, rather than working from home or relaxing.  It sucks to be burning through my leave time balances for something like this, but it's worthwhile if I can avoid any chance of being stuck in a 2-hour commute with the youngin' in the car.

 

(Aside: pope.dc.gov is probably the greatest government url I've ever seen.) 

Another upshot of living in the sticks. No one ever comes to screw up traffic! Well, it's not like DC is an easy commute on non-Pope days.

It can be entertaining on some days.  I sometimes drive by the Vatican embassy (where he'll be staying), and in the evening rush hour, there is often an older gentleman holding a giant "VATICAN HIDES PEDOPHILES" sign.  I once saw him getting off the bus at a nearby stop with his sign, which was extra entertaining because a group of nuns got off at the same stop.  I wonder how that guy is handling the visit from His Holiness... 

 

Still, I'll take "it might just take 2 hours to get where you want to go" over "it's always at least 2 hours from anywhere you want to go."

I'm shocked people still buy physical newspapers!

 

No popup ads, quick load times and you can be pretty sure if the newspaper is on the lawn in the morning, the world didn't end in a zombie apocalypse over night.

Its all about convenience. You can get all the same information from a phone/tablet/PC without ever getting off the couch. The same reason I don't have a telephone line in my house, because my cell phone is never more than a few feet away. laughing.gif

Everything Amentep said plus I find my phone and tablet make a poor charcoal fire starter. And you can only use them once.

Thanks Ros. Tell him I said "hey" and tell him to come see us once in a while!

That's funny. I've gotten a "your password was reset" email from twitter like a half-dozen times over the past two years or so. I've never even used it (honestly, I don't even remember signing up, but I guess I could've for some reason or another), so presumably it was hacked or something, but whoever hacked it hasn't actually done anything with it or anything, so I really just don't give a crap. :p

I hope Wals is taking such a long break because he is busy becoming a competitive powerlifter.

 

I hope they got him a new spinal column made of adamantium ... I know his regular human bone version wasn't working correctly.

Weights and a target with a respectable group on it. Now THATS a manly picture! The only thing missing is a bottle of good booze. :lol:

Getting closer to finalize my "exit plans" for Germany, having decided on a start date in my new job, giving me a definite goal for when I have to be in the UK.

 

In the process of packing... sheesh you gather a lot of stuff over time and I thought I tossed out a lot when moving from Australia ;)

I believe Wals is hunting down oby who is planning to start the apocalypse.

No chance ....Wals really use to dislike Oby, he had this almost unreasonable dislike of him. I can't believe people use to get so annoyed by Oby  :biggrin:

Your mailman must be seriously ripped, if he carries that along with the other mail.

You should see him deliver cast lead muzzle loader bullets - a box the size of a car battery that weighs 40 kilograms.  :grin:  

 

 

Despite having an off day I gave the log bar a try, 5 repetitions 97 kilograms / 215lbs strict shoulder presses. This. Is. FUN:w00t:
