I can't post anything, but today I can comment. Insert pithy comment here.
Can comment, but can't post or play the oboe.

Speaking as someone with excessive uric acid in my blood, this is bullshit.
Buried lede dept.
In an article about how one of the Wienermobiles had its catalytic converter stolen, we learn that the "Weinermobiles are driven across the nation by 'hotdoggers' who claim the job for a one-year assignment."
Everything okay in town, Blue?
Sure, why do you ask ? [ cough cough ]

At least you're coughing. That's a good sign.
Yeah, can't cough if you aren't breathing.
That's the spirit!
Head lice of yesteryear. https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/scienti…
But is it happy lice time?
Do not google!
Is it snowin?
No sn*w yet. Friday into Saturday should suck mightily.
How about now?
Six inches yesterday, a few more overnight, and it's still fucking dumping.
I want to speak to the head of the internet.
"Your call is very important to us…"
The highway is closed at the Kern County Line due to power lines across the road, and north of Bishop due to copious amounts of snow. I'm in a little island here, can't go anywhere
Any stranded skiers you could waylay and eat?
The highway patrol is escorting traffic from the mountain resorts down to the valley floor, then cuts them loose. I suppose they're all mine, now. The sun came out this morning, and it is achingly beautiful. Cold AF, though.

Cephalopods: They're Smart, and They're Assholes
Yeah well, many fish have been seen hanging around with fascists.
Jerry and Sharon are my next door neighbors! They moved to Nevada to be closer to their kids and grandkids, but they kept their house here. That was a stupid thing to do.
Edit: Keeping the house wasn't stupid, taking off in a blizzard is.
Now it's an international story.
When the story hit the front page of cnn.com yesterday, I figured it would spread. Every article I've read changes the story. Yesterday, I drove 15 miles out the road they say he was stuck on, and it doesn't seem possible he could have gotten more than a quarter mile down it before realizing he was on the wrong road. It was clear of snow yesterday, but there are no poles or markers on it, so he couldn't have known where the pavement was. I hope to get the story straight from the horse's mouth when he shows back up. All of the highways that were closed when he got lost are still closed today, so he's not coming anytime soon.
Are there reporters at the diner? Are you wearing overallls and an old RIDGID tools hat?
Heh. You can ask Lot_49 and Glasspusher, we ain't got no diner. Used to, and it was a good one, too. The building still stands, but it'll be a while before they find a new owner for it.
Get Lot and Glass to buy it.
They could name it Cletus's Place!
From coastal elites to Fresno losers, everybody stops at Cletus's
Or "Two Cletuses from Big Pine"?
Or is that Cleti?
More seriously, I'm sure you have a plan of action for the next coupla weeks. Water gonna start to flow.
Begun, it has. All the lower elevation snow done got rained on and the highway south outta here has been flooded for days. And not just from runoff, but the LA Aqueduct blew out too.
That's how I feel about them too, but they will still get their water one way or another. They stole it fair and square.
I meant you. Have a supply of beef jerky or something?
I'm not without resources, but if the power goes out, I'm gonna have a harder time of it. Got gas for the BBQ, so I can still cook. Beans will fall through the grill, though.
That's a relief.
Thanks for worrying, so I don't have to!
That's all I got. Wouldn't be able to do anything if you get in real trouble anyway.
"We're gonna need bigger beans."
GMO , baby! Beans the size of a steak.
Know any venture caps. that can fund us?
Do YOU know any venture capitalists?
By the way, the time stamp on ID says that you replied to that comment 30 minutes before I made it, so we may be in bigger trouble than we thought.
No vc's. Maybe just troll wingers for donations Call 'em Patriot beans or something.
Well, we'll have to shoot a Giant Beans commercial to show to the investors. You know, the usual: attractive young people gathered around the barbecue, looking on lasciviously as the chef flips the bean steaks… Frisbees being tossed in the background…etc….
Out-of-work Hollywood types who will do it for the 'exposure'. Or film student.
"Giant Beans. So hawt!"
Patriot Beans, my ass.
I recently bought a big bag o' pintos, and the sumbitches are from Alberta. Frostbacks took are jerbs!
Ermahgerd! Build the nerthern berrder werrll!!!
Way back after I had been re-structured out of tree-hugging, I talk to a few people at Native Seeds org. One time I was at their farm and they had trash cans full of fresh picked beans. Didn't get a job, but they gave me about 5 lbs. of beans. Best ever.
This sign is less than a half mile from the turnoff from the state highway. Unless it was a whiteout, he should have seen it!
Yeah. Mistakes were made.
Farmers are known to keep vehicles long past their street-legal usefulness, but those two trucks look to have still been road-worthy. Desperate times, indeed.
Sure, that's great, but where were these guys when we needed them for the Deepwater Horizon disaster?
That's why trucks keep getting bigger.
That checks out.

Fact check: [true!]
Had a [condo] blow up real good in Mammoth yesterday.
Saw pics of Tulare Lake too.
Apparently, there have been 30 structures lost in Mammoth, and another 50 are red-tagged.
The latest I've heard is this one had a gas leak inside the unit, not at the tank.
They already have an insurmountable housing crisis up there. This should exacerbate it some.
"Check the policy, honey"
How high's the water , Papa?
Gonna be fun when it gets here.
I can't recall a more disturbing headline.
My mind is so shot full of holes, I have to repeatedly scroll back to re-read an email I'm replying to.
Of course you can't.

Soon to be a five-part Netflix docudrama.
Send them to Florida.

thepoliticalcat had surgery this past week
Sorry, folks, blinder than I was pre-surgery! I can kinda see, but it's still wavery, watery, gluey, and weird. Especially since I have a Real Nose (i.e., not one of those button-shaped, no-bridge noses – this one's a proud salute to my ancestors, who measured royalty by the size of their schnozzes)
I haven't spent much time on mastodon of late, so I guess I missed that. Sorry to hear his luck was like mine. Still blind AF out of my right eye.
Sorry to hear that, for you and Weedlordbonerhitler.

Whoa, it's back from the Bad Place!
For a week or two, it reverted back to the format where you had to input your nym and email before commenting, which didn't work anyway, requiring a moderator to approve it. We all know we don't have mods anymore, and comments have never been allowed anyway.
God bless America.
I would consider violence if someone served me a hot pocket.
Well shit, it's insisting my comment must be approved by the non-existent site admins.
