        1. Giuliani continued: “I only later realised it must have been Sacha Baron Cohen. I thought about all the people he previously fooled and I felt good about myself because he didn’t get me.”

          Yeah, that could have been disastrous

          1. It sounds as if Borat would have waited a minute longer a combo of technological error, pandemic circumstances, bad judgement & bad luck would have resulted in an inadvertent Willy Release.

            Perhaps it's just as well.

    1. Same. Burned my eyebrows and eyelashes off by adding red phosphorous to the mix four days before my sis got married. Looked like a racoon in my tux with a red mask.

      1. I had a science teacher in high school who loved 'splody things. He set off the fire alarm more than once.
        He also taught a few of us select students how to synthesize LSD. After class, of course. It was legal then.
        In another far less entertaining work-related incident, I burned all my chest hair and half my beard off while hot-patching asphalt. We used diesel to soak our shovels in so the asphalt concrete wouldn't stick to it, and light it on fire to break it loose. Then you bang your shovel on the ground, and voila, it's clean. A bunch of burning oil, sand and diesel landed on my jeans about belt level, and poof. I learned not to work without a shirt on.

    2. I had a little chem set and an erector set. I made a little gizmo with the erector set that would take scoops of chemicals and spray them around the house.

  2. |Major breaking news: |
    Republican congressman Clay Higgins has granted us a glimpse into the future by sharing one of his wife’s premonitions … and things do not sound good, folks.

    “My wife has the gift of premonition,” Higgins, a Republican of Louisiana, said in a tweet. “Last night she dreamed that Federal squads were in our home seizing guns, knives, ‘unauthorized foods’ and stored water. They said we had been ‘reported’. Becca awoke crying. What happened to our freedom? She asked. What indeed.”

    It’s unclear what lesson to take from this tweet, except possibly that the Higgins family should stop watching dystopian movies before going to sleep.

    But Higgins’ tweet did allow congressional reporters to share some of the premonitions they have been having recently:

    My wife has the gift of premonition.
    Last night she dreamed that someone ate the plums in the ice box she had been saving for breakfast.
    She awoke crying.
    What happened to our delicious plums? She asked. They were going to be so sweet and so cold.
    What indeed.

  3. Gonna unfollow Kyle Griffen. He's been doing this kinda thing every day, often twice a day, for weeks, and it's getting on my nerves.
    More than 6.3 million people have cast their vote in Texas so far.

    That represents 37.63% of all registered voters in Texas.

      1. We hooted at that last night. We had a safe distance dinner with friends in the Central District of Seattle, the gentrifying 'Hood. Melanin-impaired suburban Bellevue was in panic mode.

  4. Sacha Baron Cohen
    Donald—I appreciate the free publicity for Borat! I admit, I don’t find you funny either. But yet the whole world laughs at you.

    I’m always looking for people to play racist buffoons, and you’ll need a job after Jan. 20. Let’s talk!

          1. A 20 percent chance of showers. Partly cloudy, with a low around 57. Southwest wind 7 to 13 mph.

          2. I only know a few people in Orange County, and they aren't goopers. Two live east of the 405 freeway in Irvine, the third lives in her van wherever she ends up for the night, mostly, but her storage shed is within a few miles of the fire. They're not fleeing, not yet anyway.

        1. Tomorrow 10/26
          70% / 0.25 in
          Rain showers in the morning with precipitation turning to a mixture of rain and snow in the afternoon. Morning high of 43F with temps falling to near 30. Winds E at 15 to 25 mph. Chance of rain 70%. Snow accumulating 1 to 3 inches

    1. I thought it was a twitter ban, of which I heartily approve.
      Maybe I'll change my opinion when their star tweeterer is sidelined after November 3rd.

          1. Oh that. I was thinking about the treason/counterrevolutionary ceimes.

            Meet in the middle -' Lubyanka or Bastille
