  1. Russians are also collecting “evidence” how scientists are developing "vole-delivered bio-weapon" there.

    We've been hearing whispers about the Volesgrenadier Division, but it's still a shock to see it confirmed. With irradiated mutant Supervoles, no less. What a world we live in.

  2. | 'Never Forward" |

    This has been quite the show around these parts. Crouching like a stuck toad in the mud and easily visible from the Bay Bridge, it's made | Downs Park | a very popular stop. I gather there's a boat captain or two that attempted to take paying gawkers for a close in look but that's massively Frowned Upon by the USCG and the MD State Marine Police.

    Not actually blocking the channel like her sister ship did to the Suez almost exactly a year ago, but a sizeable section of the Baltimore approach is now a No Wake Zone and periodically shut for pulling ops. Can't imagine how many millions this is costing but I'll bet Loyd's of London or whoever are gobbling antacids again.

    1. Amazing the engineers and machinists who make those jigs, as well as the people working them and putting them together.

    1. I haven't poked that particular bear in some time. I don't know if it results in automatic spanking or not anymore.

        1. They created a script before, any word that came remotely close to trig resulted in automatic deletion and the risk of the banhammer. The whole thing kinda broke Layne, sadly.

          1. Oh yeah. Like people started posting "Roy Roger's horse" or " device that releases a spring.

          2. I felt bad for Jack Steuf, really. He only said shit everyone was thinking, and Mooselini ruined America, the end.

    1. A scourge for thousands of years.
      Some designer will reproduce them and someone will wear them at the Academy Awards.

      1. Was she selling a 70's geodesic dome house on This Benighted Peninsula?

        We were showed one out here years ago when we were in the market. It was in a promising waterfront location but the entire place was – I kid you not – covered in this exact deep orange shag. The center of the house sported a burnt orange midcentury modern steel freestanding wood stove, kitchen was appointed in brick and white Swedish Horrible and the furniture was straight out of a Playboy magazine. There were bean bag chairs. All this place needed was George Peppard in a Nehru jacket, martinis and several girls in silver mini dresses and purple wigs and it could star in an episode of U.F.O.

        We didn't stay long.

        1. The debate continues as to whether 70s design was a cause, or an effect. Either conclusion is unflattering for humanity.

        2. 4 br. house in Cleveland suburb. Yes, Sunken floor. The one uncle who made some money. They stayed the fuck away from us as much as possible. Don't remember much else except that I was afraid to touch anything or move around.

          1. What I still can't get over is; who thought it was a good idea to Shag carpet a bathroom? Did they not understand what goes on in there?

          2. To be fair, the burnt orange will mask some problems. I don't think their bathroom was fully shagged, maybe just a large [ white ?] rug and covers. Maybe it's not for anyone to use. They had a little patch of woods outside, so I peed out there.

        3. Carpet's an easy fix. I have barf brown shag in half of my house, and blue high-low in the living room. I have plans, but shit takes time and money.

      1. Next door peoples moved from Seattle. This is their first spring here and the guy is already, "Damn it's hot! Honey, maybe we shouldn't sell that house back there."
