  1. Also, if anyone cares about Bobo's shit the bed column, driftglass, LGM, and alicublog have run-downs. There may be others.

    eta: I looked that they had them, did not dig in.

  2. Imagine having a national leader who has a degree in quantum chemistry instead of whatever the fuck it is we have now.

        1. City opened a COPE methadone clinic in this neighborhood a few years ago and
          most of the neighbors have been shitting themselves ever since.
          I have not noticed any increase in criminal activity.

    1. They should just call it Emergency Room .
      I will say that Glenlivet is often a persons introduction to nice single malts, and is fine.
      It's taken a while and much research, but I have since learned that there are at least a dozen better.

        1. We would take -Livet as our backpacking whiskey.
          [ don't hate me : there's one made in AZ. that's better ]

          Lately Laphroaig, Glenmorangie. May have to consult with the gang for others that have been
          tested .

    2. Scotch addendum : We really did take G-livet backpacking , but it was also pretty much at the upper end of anyone's price range at the time, so we were packing in our own decadent lifestyle, such as it was. By the time people were able/willing to buy better Scotch, the lure of hiking ten miles carrying 40lb+ packs had waned somewhat, and the gang had broken up / moved away / hated each other. By then I was working in the goddam nature and hiking in it on vacation also lost it's appeal for a couple of reasons.

      What would have really been more needed was stuff like

      instead of whateverthefuck freeze-dried crap we were buying from the camping stores.

        1. Hmm. Good point.

          What are the side effects of KI (potassium iodide)?

          Side effects of KI (potassium iodide) may include stomach or gastro-intestinal upset, allergic reactions, rashes, and inflammation of the salivary glands.

    1. There's a theory that he does his own hair, makeup, spray-tan, etc, because he thinks no one knows he has a comb-over, wears makeup and uses spray-tan. Any student in the second week of beauty school could do a better job.

    Ohhhhhhhh, it's

      1. Yes. They send it to Nevada to be buried.

        [ Also side- note………they have damn volunteers collecting that shit with one Public Employee supervising, which, you know, fine, but another thing to skimp on ….. ]

        1. Wow. Here they have a drive-thru-style set up, you are not allowed to get out of your car and their people open your car and take the stuff out. No volunteers in sight.

          1. I think it is 'asked' that you not get out, but at some point I had to as I have a custom designed
            trunk system on a 30 y.o. car.

          1. Mine is remarkably indifferent to my plight these days. I just signed up for a knee replacement in January, and the cat is underfoot as much as ever. I had three biopsies yesterday, and he sniffed blood and still walked away.


          2. I'm sorry to hear about the knee replacement. Your cat likely is concerned that the knee replacement may inhibit your ability to open cans and may wish to solve the problem by liquidating you.

      1. I am finding this therapeutic. I wish there was an app that did this automatically to every photo and vid of Trump.

      1. "Mr. Brouillette and his wife, Adrienne, are both U.S. Army veterans and have been married for 28 years. They hail from San Antonio, TX, and have nine children."

      1. In 1931, the same year he died, Edison confided his concerns to his friends Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone, who by then were retirement neighbors in Florida:

        "We are like tenant farmers chopping down the fence around our house for fuel when we should be using nature's inexhaustible sources of energy — sun, wind, and tide."

        "I’d put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don’t have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that.”

      1. PMCinTX
        Replying to
        Perry: I will resign in November
        Trump: who are you
        P: Energy Secretary
        T: have you ever heard of Ukraine
        P: uh, yeah?
        T: good

          1. I doubt it, but he got some attaboys from some of the MSNBC hosts this morning. Maybe he will respond favorably to positive reinforcement?
