Irony

 

So apparently Trump believes Comey is a nutjob.

I don’t know what Comey is exactly, besides a mendacious meddler favoring a Republican outcome in our presidential election, but it is in my opinion painfully clear who the nutjob is.

It isn’t Comey.

And nevermind the fact that our idiot in chief pretty much admitted he fired Comey because of the FBI’s investigation into Trump. Clearly a case of flagrant obstruction by a petulant, privileged, jackass who thinks he is beyond the law.

While I do believe this could be the beginning of the end for our joke of a president, the joke will be on us, as Pence, the idiot lying YEC, is next in line.

Thank you, I just had to get that out of my head as it was bouncing around in there like a ricochet and would not leave me alone. I feel a bit better now…  🙂

Insanity

There are likely more fires like this that need putting out all over the internet, than any rational mind could keep up with. I stumbled across this WP post a few minutes ago, a ludicrous right wing rant, oblivious of reality, soaked in racism, wrapped up in hate, and in complete denial of anything resembling the facts as we understand them.

Go, but at your own risk. I hate even suggesting anyone visit this…

https://wordpress.com/read/blogs/45873025/posts/6261

I commented, doubt it will stay up long. So I copied it.

“Nice rant. Too bad the disconnect from reality is glaringly obvious. Try to be more subtle in your insanity if you want anyone to take it seriously.

This is what happens to people who only get their news/opinions from Rush Limbaugh and Faux News. People are entitled to their opinions, but facts are facts no matter what you believe, or refuse to accept.”

So, I Was Listening To The Radio II

…and the morning crew were discussing a survey where the topic was “What would you do if you knew the (so called) End of Days was upon us?” With a one week notice. The survey (which I tried to find with no success so I’m going on what they were saying) indicated that most people would spend time reaching out to family, spending time with loved ones etc.

And a certain percentage of people with anti social tendencies/psychiatric issues would run amok.

Which was all fine and dandy I guess. Then one of the announcers made that claim that “Every knee would bow, and every tongue confess the lord, that’s what would happen”

So I had to pull over and send them a text:

“As a man that lives in an evidence based reality (yeah I know lol) I would have better things to do than grovel in the dirt to any manifestation of the so called gods.

I’d spend quality time with my family, get some fishing in, enjoy my astronomy hobby, and do some drinking with my old band buddies. (among others) I’ll die with no dirt on the knees of my britches.”

Haven’t heard back from them  😉

So, how might you answer this question?

 

 

Quote Of The Month

You know I have not done one of these in like, forever, I wound up in a rabbit hole on the internet (ever had that problem?) and ran across this quote. It struck a chord with me and I thought I’d share it.

The source is Lao Tzu, early Chinese philosopher and suspected author of the Tao Te Ching.

The quote:

“Those who are intelligent are not ideologues. Those who are ideologues are not intelligent.”

Seems appropriate in todays political climate no?

How about a two-fer?

“Try to change it and you will ruin it. Try to hold it and you will lose it.”

How about a three-fer?

“Those who know do not say. Those who say do not know.”

How about a , oh nevermind!

“The more that laws and regulations are given prominence, the more thieves and robbers there will be.”

Y’all have a good day out there, and don’t do anything I wouldn’t do 🙂

That Was Close!

I for whatever reason checked my e-mail junk folder this morning and saw a message from WP. My card had expired and I am up for renewal. I updated the card successfully and paid my subscription, it will auto renew so you will all have to put up with me until 2021.

I guess I should do some sort of evil genius laugh right about now, Mwa ha ha ha ha!

I think I will make sure messages from WP get through from now on. I had recently dropped the hammer on spam because I was getting so much of it. If anyone tried to contact me I swear I wasn’t ignoring you!

Umm, little trick I found while investigating my spam problem, if you use Outlook it makes a huge difference if you go to settings and take yourself off of the accepted senders list. The spammers figured out that little loophole and are sending you messages from yourself. But the entire thing is disguised from some sort of strange address. No matter how many times I sent a spammer to the junk file they kept getting through. Not anymore. Sneaky bastards. My spam problem is a very slow trickle now compared to a dump truck load daily. That is todays other FYI   🙂

 

 

So I Heard On The Radio…

The DJ said something about how “they” had discovered some miles long thing crawling along the ocean floor. He even went so far as to say “go look it up on the internet.” So I did. All I found was a very neat hi def sonar image of a round thing on the ocean floor, with a curving trail left behind it. Cool, except for the fact that the very first thing mentioned was how “UFO-ologists” think blah de blah de blah blah. They lost me at UFO-ologist.

Every single link I found on the subject came from what I can only describe a dubious news website. Frankly I do not understand how people can read this crap and immediately think it makes sense.

The pic in question I copied from one of the sites of dubious nature, complete with alien icons in the corners! :

OceanThingy

Yep, it appears at first glance this might indicate movement, of an object supposedly miles in length/diameter. First what comes to my mind is the most obvious thing that would be consistently moving in the ocean would be water. And moving water a.k.a. current could easily carve out an unusual trail behind a large object. Unless this object has been repeatedly observed, and shown to have, you know, actually moved, everything else is wild speculation.

Another thing, if you will note the parallel lines moving diagonally across the pic, these lines upon closer examination appear to resemble (but not really) tank tracks. Except they do not look anything like tank tracks, but as you probably know this is the most rational explanation that pops into the head of a UFO-ologist. My understanding is this could indicate a fault line, but let’s not let rationality cloud up a case of people seeing things they want to see.

Lesson of the day, if you see it on the internet, or hear it on the radio, do not automatically assume what you see or hear is real. It might just be something conjured up in the abnormal mind of a UFO-ologist.

When I see this kind of crap I feel like I need to get drunk and say the hell with the human race. A drink anyone?  😉

I Haz Squirrels

Not 10 feet from my deck in the back, there is a large white oak tree. One of my boys looked up in the tree and saw some little squirrels poking their heads out. So…I had to break out my gear, get setup, and take some pics. They are cute little rascals.

This I believe might be the momma. I could see her teats were obvious and swollen. The pic didn’t come out too great for glare and shooting through the glass door.

Just another day in Tennessee. Always something interesting to look at if you are paying attention.  🙂

I yelled up at the little squirrels “if you plan on staying long I expect some rent!” I’m pretty sure I heard them laughing at me.
