What is the greatest unsolved mystery of all time?

Reddit top answers: (https://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/5fpuur/what_is_the_greatest_unsolved_mystery_of_all_time/)

A mystery that really intrigues me is the the Indus Valley Civilization. They were large well planned cities on the banks of the river Indus. They had an advanced sanitation system and their people were great designers/builders.
Eventually the people started to abandon the cities or maybe they perished. The cities were excavated years later by archaeologists. No one has been able to exactly pin-point the cause of the destruction of the cities (there are multiple theories though). They had an entire script that no one has been able to translate.
The archaeologists have unearthed idols, buildings, utensils, money (coins). It's just interesting how they just ceased to exist for so many years.

Bharara accepts Trump’s offer to ‘stay on’ as US attorney 

New York Post By Jamie Schram and Kaja Whitehouse November 30, 2016 

There’s going to be the same old “sheriff” in this town.
Preet Bharara, The gungho federal prosecutor has agreed to “stay on” as Manhattan U.S. Attorney after President-elect Donald Trump offered him the gig during a meeting Wednesday afternoon at Trump Tower in Midtown.
“We had a good meeting. I agreed to stay on. I have already spoken to Senator Sessions, who is as you know is the nominee to be the attorney general. He also asked that I stay on, and so I expect that I will be continuing to work at the southern district,” Bharara confirmed to a pool of reporters in the lobby of Trump’s Fifth Avenue skyscraper following their 40 minute powwow.

Bharara, who’s been called “The Sheriff of Wall St.” for his agressive prosecution of bankers, also heaped praise on his own office.
“The president-elect asked, presumably because he’s a New Yorker and is aware of the great work that our office has done over the past seven years, asked to meet with me to discuss whether or not I’d be prepared to stay on as the United States attorney to do the work as we have done it, independently, without fear or favor for the last seven years, Bharara said.

The New Boss.......not the same as the old boss.....you better get that straight!




President Obama's White House tells us not to blame Islam for the attacks of an ISIS follower at Ohio State University. Same old bullshit that every politically correct idiot since George W has spewed so they aren't called racist or Islamophobic. 

The God Emperor of the Cherry Blossom Throne had a different take. From Breitbart News:
“ISIS is taking credit for the terrible stabbing attack at Ohio State University by a Somali refugee who should not have been in our country,” he wrote:
ISIS is taking credit for the terrible stabbing attack at Ohio State University by a Somali refugee who should not have been in our country.
Trump’s message reiterates his previous comments about blocking refugees from Muslim countries from entering the U.S., in an effort to stop homegrown “lone wolf” terror attacks.

According to NBC News, the attacker was a Somali refugee who came to the United States in 2014 as a legal permanent resident."

Dem senators vulnerable in '18 willing to work with Trump

"North Dakota Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.) is ready to work with Republicans on legislation to invest in “clean coal” technologies.

More broadly, she says she’s willing to work across the aisle on regulatory reform.
“My priority is standing up for North Dakota, not party politics. The reason I’m in the U.S. Senate is to work with Republicans and Democrats to get things done,” she told The Hill in a statement.  
Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) is ready to work with the GOP and the Trump administration on military mental healthcare issues, curbing the exodus of U.S. jobs to foreign countries and combating the opioid epidemic. ready to 
...Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) hopes to work with Republicans to reduce the deficit, clean up Washington by stopping former lawmakers from becoming lobbyists and passing legislation to improve service at the Department of Veterans Affairs, a major Trump talking point during the campaign.
...I’m not sure that Democrats are going to rescue Republicans from the train they’re about to throw themselves in front of. There’s a fair amount of bitterness that Republicans were not reasonable players in the [Affordable Care Act] discussion,” said Kessler.
...Ten Democrats voted last year to approve the Keystone pipeline. Six of them are running for re-election in states that Trump won: McCaskill, Manchin, Donnelly, Heitkamp, Tester and Casey."

Mallory Archer's office art

Cutting cable was wonderful. What a good decision. Upon leaving I was offered cable for the same cost of the internet service (still the best in Denver,) that is basically free, and even that was not appealing because of all the extra nonsense and irritation that comes with it, CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, advertisements, programs of pure advertising and so on. I don't want it.

I've been binge watching "Bob's Burgers" and "Futurama" and now "Archer."

One of the things that is really great about Netflix is that you can stop the action and study the background for their extra little cartoonist touches that are missed for going by too quickly to take in. For example, Bob's Burgers intro constructs the same scene of Bob, his family, the restaurant with a funeral home on the left and shop on the right, the name of the shop on the right changes with each episode to something amusing like the Bart Simpson writing on the chalkboard, "PFETA, Meat is Murder," "Trot's All Natural Fertilizer," "Meth I Can Methadone Clinic," "Extra Moist Yoga," "The Horse Renderer," and so on.  Then groups of mice run across the sidewalk and converge in front of the shop then a van speeds into the scene and stops directly in front of the burger restaurant with an amusing name on the van for an extermination company that changes with each episode, "Rats All Folks Exterminators," "Stan Vermin King of Vermin," "The Pest Pesterior," "Ratty Shack," "Chester the Depester," "The Mice Girls," "Wicked Witch of the Pest," and so on. It's fun. And completely missed without stopping to read because it appears onscreen for only half a second and very easily overlooked. I didn't see any of this until Netflix. The ending too incorporates amusing elements of the show while running credits. It's the same back of the restaurant scene with characters appearing in the service window and Bob scratching his butt, while people are dancing and singing and playing around him each time. Unfortunately, Netflix shrinks that to a smaller inset while they cue up the next episode.

I'm fairly certain that Futurama does something similar with their intro. I'll have to look at the NYC billboard that flashes onscreen for something amusing each episode while people are flashing through the transporter tube. I bet it changes each time. I didn't think to look today. Plus, on Netflix the intro doesn't show each time. It's just an additional cartoonist touch that is easily overlooked.

Likewise, the cartoon "Archer" is filled with fine touches. In season 1 episode 2, "Training Day" Archer goes into the office of the engineer who designs spy equipment, the equivalent of Q in James Bond films except entirely taciturn, he stays on his handheld device the whole time Archer is talking to him. In the background are shelves of storage bins with amusing labels, but the action must be stopped to read the labels because they appear for only a second, "Air Tools," "Poison," "Guns," "Tap & Die," "Hopes & Dreams," "Cuffs & Darts," etc.

The main character's mother is the head of the intelligence agency and the walls of her office are covered with art that I find attractive, to each their own taste. It's frameless with the canvas wrapped around the edges such as you see on design shows, and house flipping shows, and that you can buy online. I thought as I watched, "Hey! I can buy that." It's easily done. Just copy it from the show and produce it though any of the outfits online that offer this type of service. (They always offer a tremendous discount for your first order.) It's amazingly inexpensive and an impressive service, and widely used, and you can do so much with it. For a few hundred bucks you can copy the entire office. But first you must find good copies.

So I looked.

Turns out it's real art and the real life artist is suing FX for copyright infringement. This came up immediately searching [archer, art, mallory's office] They used her art without her permission. Just like I intend to do, except they did it for financial gain.

This clip shows the art fairly well but only in part. Other clips on YouTube show it better but they must be sorted though and they're all at an angle drawn in perspective and all too poor quality to use. And this is Google images showing Michel Leah Keck's work for much better copies.


I Don't Want to Hear It, Michel Leah Keck


The Best is Yet to Come, Michel Leah Keck

See? Those two actual paintings are in this key frame. No fair!


Something tells me this doesn't interest you. Something tells me you don't care for the art one single bit. Something tells me this idea is useless to you and that you find cartoons uninteresting BANG!

I just now killed the little bird telling me negative things and kicked it over the balcony.

The best thing about Netflix is it delivers on the promise that cable reneged. Cable was supposed to be subscribers pay to avoid commercials but then cable could not resist the double payment stream from subscribers and from advertisers. And now having what cable denied it is very weird switching from Netflix back to pre-cable over the air programming and being subjected to wholly unrelated advertising content interrupting its programming. It's jolting. With OTA, I go, mute, mute, mute, mute, mutie, mute, mute, until the whole effort becomes wearisome, and back to Netflix for comfort. Even though it's still mostly background chatter and and flickering lighting. Otherwise it'd be like a Zen Buddhist temple over here, not so bad, actually, but still, it's good to have something going on, connection to the world at large, some sign of life besides my own thoughts.

Is this man superman?

Wim Hof first caught the attention of scientists when he proved he was able to stay submerged in ice for one hour and 53 minutes without his core body temperature changing. Since then, he's climbed Mount Everest in his shorts, resisted altitude sickness, completed a marathon in the Namibian Desert with no water and proven – under a laboratory setting – that he's able to influence his autonomic nervous system and immune system at will.

Thriving on raw eggs, world's oldest person marks 117th birthday in Italy

Morano was born in November 1899, four years before the Wright brothers first took to the air. Her life has spanned three centuries, two World Wars and over 90 Italian governments.
"My life wasn't so nice," she told Reuters TV as she sat in an armchair by her window, a white shawl over her shoulders. "I worked in a factory until I was 65, then that was that."
In an interview with La Stampa newspaper five years ago she said her fiance had died in World War One and that she had then been forced to marry a man she did not love.
"'Either you agree to marry me or I will kill you'," Morano said, recalling his proposal. "I was 26. We got married."
She has thrived despite an unorthodox, unbalanced diet.
"When I first knew her she used to eat three eggs a day. Two raw, and one fried. Today she has slowed down a bit, reducing the number to two some days because she says three can be too much," her doctor Carlo Bava told Reuters TV.
"She has never eaten much fruit or vegetables. Her characteristic is that she always eats the same thing, every day, every week, every month and every year."

Dems discussing merits of competing GOP Obamacare replacements

[Trump's HHS nominee, Rep. Tom] Price’s Empowering Patients plan, like Obamacare, requires insurance plans to offer coverage to any patient regardless of how sick they are. But the Empowering Patients plan, unlike Obamacare, would let insurers charge sick people more if they did not maintain “continuous coverage.”
This continuous coverage policy shows up in a lot of the Republican replacement plans, and is likely something we’ll hear lots of debate about in the coming months. It’s part of House Speaker Paul Ryan’s Obamacare replacement plan, as well as Sen. Finance Chair Orrin Hatch’s proposal.
Here’s how it works: If a cancer patient goes straight from insurance at work to her own policy, her insurer has to charge her a standard rate — it can’t take the cost of her condition into account.
But if she had a lapse in coverage — perhaps she couldn’t afford a new plan between jobs — and went to the individual market under Empowering Patients, insurers could charge her up to 150 percent of the standard premium for her first two years of coverage (you can read this section on page 151 of the bill).
A patient can once again qualify for the standard rate if she maintains 1http://www.vox.com/2016/11/28/13772342/trump-tom-price-obamacare8 months of continuous coverage — although that would likely be with premiums set at the higher rate.
Empowering Patients does have a safety net for people like this: It would invest $3 billion over three years in a high-risk pool to cover those with preexisting conditions who are unable to afford coverage on the marketplace. This is significantly less generous than other Republican proposals for high-risk pools. Ryan’s Better Way plan, for example, would put $25 billion toward the high-risk pools over a decade ($2.5 billion per year) and keep them running indefinitely. In that way, Price’s bill has a much weaker safety net than his House colleagues envision.

Trump continues cat and mouse with MSM

"According to Ari Fleischer, former WH press secretary for George W. Bush, Trump may soon go toe-to-toe with a formidable presence: the White House press corps. In an op-ed in today's Wall Street Journal, Fleischer points out, rightly so, that the coveted 49 seats in the WH briefing room are doled out primarily to mainstream media, with few going to digital outlets such as, ahem, IJR, for example. Right now, the White House Correspondents' Association determines who gets which seats, but Fleischer ponders a scenario where the Trump administration takes back assigning power, writing, “the valuable West Wing real estate occupied by the White House press corps isn't the property of the press. It belongs to the U.S. Government.”"

A column by Kevin Dowd.

Posted by Maureen Dowd at the NYT, it is her column titled "Election Therapy From My Basket of Deplorables."

The post features a photograph of a lovely table setting, a place you'd be happy to visit. It looks like a very nice dinner party in red with white balance shifted to yellow for a washed out sort of look. You know what? I can fix the photograph with an eyedropper. Command "L" in photoshop, choose the white eyedropper tool. Touch the reflection on the white dinner plate.  Eh. Still very red. It is very red.


The figurine is Cersei, a character in Game of Thrones, Kevin Dowd's nickname for Hillary Clinton.

So Maureen Dowd walks into a scene designed for gloating. And she must bear it with her chin up. 

This post by Maureen Dowd is a humble and kind and forgiving piece that relates her Thanksgiving dinner at her relatives who are all Trump supporters. She posts without complaint, without vitriol. She puts up a lovely post and my opinion of her is changed by it. She merely introduces the scene that includes a Trump wine bottle on a sideboard of ordinary homemade holiday dinner fixings. It's truly lovely scene and it reminds me of my own family's holiday gatherings save for the figurine and the many bottles of wine, but nothing at all what you might imagine. I enjoyed her sharing this scene.

All that by way of introducing her brother's column, the bulk of her post. Kevin Dowd summarizes everything that we've discussed here at length and what a pleasure it is to read from someone else's pen outside our circle. It's all there. He's every bit as good a writer as his sister minus her poetic allusions, her graphic descriptions and her feminine locution. It's altogether a beautiful thing to behold. Maureen Dowd introduces saying, 
My colleague Paul Krugman tweeted Friday that “affluent, educated suburbanites” who voted for Trump are “fools.” What else is there to say, he asked. 
Well, here is what Kevin, an affluent, educated suburbanite, has to say in his column, titled an “Election Therapy Guide for Liberals”:
And, bang, he says it, and he says it all in one piece.

My dad was an athelete



I posted this video of the adorable girl to avoid posting about political things, namely Donald Trump's latest tweet criticizing MSM for giving so much attention to Jill Stein's efforts at recounting key states and Hillary Clinton's smelling the money involved and glomming onto it, or perhaps planning the whole thing immediately using Jill with Hillary's wealthy backers who honestly believe they bought this election fair and square and simply cannot accept Electoral College results, interestingly making this unseemly protraction a millionaire vs millionaires situation. 

I notice by comments elsewhere that base voter on the left, and journalists, do  not yet comprehend that Donald Trump is avoiding availing American media services. Both haven't internalized that MSM is being shunted by Trump using Twitter to strike his points instead of using MSM. Ignoring Twitter's character limitation, they interpret a series of tweets that it takes for Trump to make a single point since the tweets are not numbered 1 of 6, 2 of 6 and so forth as Twitterers do, and characterize the series as Twitter beinging and a sign of Trump acting out of control, and he needs to learn how to control his late night tweeting impulses. This morning a British newspaper, Daily Mail, I think, ran an item titled "Get enough sleep, Mr. Trump?" or something similar. The story is about Trump's six tweets for Trump to make his point already made here about the duplicity of Hillary's public statement regarding accepting election results and Trump's saying previously "We'll see" as being a threat to our union along with Hillary's wearisome pedantry about American history. Then behaving the opposite and seriously engaging the behavior she condemned. And all of her party loyalists believe all of that is just fine.  Then later today a commenter on another YouTube video, a man with an elderly man's avatar that appears authentic, said the same thing, that Trump needs to get off Twitter. I told him he's old enough to know better and he'll take his immaturity to his grave. And he's a dope. I'm notified of return comments but I delete them without reading them. I'm there to provoke and annoy, not to engage.

Why? We know it's how Trump chooses to communicate directly by bypassing corrupted MSM who report what they please for their own aims. He's totally working their last nerves and it shows. 

Serious voter fraud in Virginia, New Hampshire and California - so why isn't the media reporting on this? Serious bias - big problem!
Whew, I did very well there posting the amusing honesty of the little girl. Because if not then you'd be tempted to read through the Twitter reaction to Trump's plainspoken truth. What we have here are two entirely different operative realities. The discussion devolves to usual Twitter irrational shitstorm of pure id where wholly unrelated bugs up people's butts are flung out with the poo, as monkeys do. And you certainly don't want to see that

What it’s like being an openly gay boxer, in 3 terrible tweets 

New York Post By Mark W. Sanchez November 27, 2016


Jabs get lobbed at Orlando Cruz seemingly without end. Especially when he hits the canvas.
The Puerto Rican boxer, who in 2012 became the first active fighter to come out as gay, was stopped in the eighth round by WBO lightweight champion Terry Flanagan on Saturday in Cardiff, Wales. He was also set back on Twitter, where those within his own industry made homophobic remarks at his expense.
Before Cruz, 35, dropped to 25-5-1, getting denied a world title, British pro boxer Frankie Gavin reflected on whom he wanted to win, revealing more about himself and his friends than the boxers between the ropes.
“I have nothing against gay people have gay friends,” Gavin said, as his nearly 50,000 followers waited for the “but” that would come. “But if I lost to a gay lad I would get bantered for life by pals so Flanagan has to win.”
Gavin deleted the tweet as social media venom was directed his way. Peter Fury was not as concerned with the backlash.

"Electoral voters 'deluged' with death threats in multiple states"

One of Michigan’s 16 electors who will be called upon to cast a vote validating the election of Donald Trump in the Electoral College has testified on video that he and others in the state are receiving “dozens and dozens of death threats” from Hillary Clinton supporters urging them to switch their votes to Clinton.

On Dec. 19 the Electoral College will convene to cast their votes for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, with each state’s electors pledged to vote for the candidate elected on Nov. 8 in their state.

But more than a dozen states have no laws making it illegal for the electors to change their vote while others have only a minor penalty such as a fine for doing so. If Clinton’s supporters can get enough of the 163 electors from states where Trump both won and votes can be legally switched on Dec. 19, Hillary Clinton becomes the next president of the United States.

Trump spent Thanksgiving asking: Mitt or Rudy?

 New York Post By Emily Smith November 26, 2016


The talk at Donald Trump’s Thanksgiving dinner at his Florida club was all about if he should pick Mitt Romney or Rudy Giuliani for secretary of state.
The president-elect held court on Thursday at his Palm Beach, Fla., Mar-a-Lago club at a large table with family members including wife Melania and sons Eric and Barron.
One witness told us Trump took a prime table next to the fireplace in the club’s living room, but spent a lot of time greeting members and asking who they think should be his top diplomat.
The spy said, “Donald was walking around asking everybody he could about who should be his secretary of state. There was a lot of criticism about Romney, and a lot of people like Rudy. There are also many people advocating for [former US ambassador to the UN] John Bolton.”
On Friday it was reported that Trump wants Romney to publicly apologize for criticizing him during the campaign in order to be considered for secretary of state.
Guests joining Trump for Thanksgiving at Mar-a-Lago included Christopher Nixon Cox, the grandson of Richard Nixon, who we are told is being lined up to be Trump’s ambassador to China. Also there was Marvel Entertainment CEO Ike Perlmutter, CEO of Newsmax Media Christopher Ruddy, boxing promoter Don King, interior designer William Eubanks and political consultant Mary Ourisman. Attracting almost as much attention as the president-elect was chiseled romance-novel hunk Fabio, who was seated at a table near Trump, and “was asked for pictures nearly as often as Trump himself.”
Meanwhile, security was intense. The witness told us that Ocean Boulevard outside Mar-a-Lago was sealed off, and all vehicles were diverted to a nearby parking lot to be fully searched and checked by sniffer dogs. Entering the club, all members had to pass through airport-style metal detectors and have their bags searched. Once inside, “Secret Service agents were swarming everywhere. But Trump seemed relaxed, like he was in his own living room and surrounded by family.”
(I agree with one of Trumps loyal surrogates and winning Campaign Manager Kellyanne Conway who said today: “I’m all for party unity, but I’m not sure we have to pay for that with secretary of state position,” Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s campaign manager, told CNN’s Dana Bash on “State of the Union.”
She added: “It’s just breathtaking in scope and intensity the type of messages I’ve received from all over the country … the number of people who feel betrayed to think that Gov. Romney would get the most prominent Cabinet post after he went so far out of his way to hurt Donald Trump.”)

Steve Bannon according to Boston Globe

From an interesting article that talks about Bannon's background. Born middle class in Richmond, Va, UVA undergratuate, Navy, stand-out at Harvard Business School, Goldman Sachs, Breitbart. An all-around great guy, by most accounts.

"Harvard Business School [c]lassmates remember him wearing his conservative beliefs like a badge: He would carry it into almost any discussion.
Several of his fellow students are shocked at the comments they now see attributed to Bannon, and those that come out on Breitbart, the conservative website that he runs. A May 2016 article called Bill Kristol, a longtime Republican and Weekly Standard editor, a “renegade Jew.” In July, an article said that if women did not want to be harassed online, they should log off.
Women, the article said, are “screwing up the Internet for men by invading every space we have online and ruining it with attention-seeking and a needy, demanding, touchy-feely form of modern feminism.”
“We call ourselves ‘the Fight Club.’ You don’t come to us for warm and fuzzy,” Bannon told The Washington Post in January. “We think of ourselves as virulently antiestablishment, particularly ‘anti’ the permanent political class. We say Paul Ryan was grown in a petri dish at the Heritage Foundation.”
It’s the kind of language that was virtually unheard of in his Harvard days, from Bannon or anyone else. And some of those who got to know Bannon back then say they don’t think he believes some of those things, even now.
Instead, they believe he is simply doing what he was taught more than three decades ago: exploiting a business opportunity, this time in the furious, neglected legions of the white middle class. He saw a market in their sense of alienation, and Trump’s election suggests that his forecast was truer than most.
“If you were asking me about some of the articles published and things clearly intended to be lightning rod, I’m not sure Steve subscribes to those beliefs,” said one former classmate, speaking on the condition of anonymity. “But there’s a strong argument to be made that he was doing whatever any good business leader would do, which is serving his customers and providing a product.”
In that sense, the classmate said, they see Bannon now as the same brash and driven striver they saw 32 years ago when he joined their class.
“A lot of people give him credit for being the brains behind this political revolution, almost as if it’s coming out of nowhere,” the classmate said. “That’s very consistent in the behavior I saw from Steve in the HBS environment
“In a way, he would surprise people with his insights and the extent of his understanding of a complex situation. But doing it from the fringe. And the fringe in that case was skydeck [section of the lecture hall]."
The perch Bannon will soon occupy as Trump’s chief counselor and strategist is no longer the fringe of the classroom, or the fringe of anywhere. It’s the Oval Office."

WKRLEM: Two Reasons not to talk about politics

Even douchnozzle #nevertrump morons understand the press are lying sacks of crap when they talk about Trump...why don't you get it?


Red State along with HotAir and Powerline are among the most Anti-Trump blogs on the internet. I was a fan...well until they banned me earlier in the year for being Pro-Trump because they are arrogant ignorant pussies. But I do go there occasionally to read our buddy Evil Blogger Lady who writes a diary there. I mean it is no Melania Trump's Diary but it is pretty good and I highly recommend you check it out.

So much to my surprise I see an actual fair post by the total #nevertrump knucklehead streiff who illustrates how the lying media is trying to sow discord among Trumps supporters and sabatoge his presidency. You know the way some people who post here are doing every day.

Check it out:


Trump, Climate Change And The Fake News Cartel

"On Tuesday, Donald Trump met with New York Times reporters. During that meeting the subject of anthropogenic global warming came up. This is how the media reported the story.


The overall media take on the story was that Trump was backtracking on his campaign positions on climate change. In fact, based on the news coverage of the meeting, I followed suit. (You can find examples of how the meeting was spun here and here.) Now the transcript is out and it shows a remarkably different meeting than the one portrayed.

One Monkey Don't Steal No Show



The problem with Cheeta is the problem you have with most monkeys. They are totally oversexed and will screw anything that moves. They are lazy and they are always late.  Except when they can play golf. 

Basically all they are concerned about is having monkey sex and pinching a loaf which they then love to fling at you. It was real hard to work when one of your stars is always whacking it or having sex somewhere off in a corner. It was like working with Mickey Rourke when he was still on the stuff. 

We caught a break when we cast Maureen O’Sullivan as Jane. You see she liked that hot monkey sex just as much as Cheeta ever did. So she would just take that randy chimp by the hand and disappear into her trailer for hours at a time. When they came back they were both glassy eyed and ready for direction. Of course we kept it all secret at the time. We were afraid that it would come out when Maureen’s daughter Mia Farrow was born.Mia definitely resembled her mother’s hirsute co-star. I guess that was why her mom always called her a “little monkey.”

Instant Replay The Unedited Edition

We won so much as the Green Bay Packers that it got boring. I mean they started calling Green Bay by the nickname “Title Town.” We were the first in so many things.

We were among the first to have so many Negro Players. We were among the first to have a player suspended for gambling. The first to have players wife’s sitting in their own section in the stadium. The first to really interact with the fans who were our twelfth man on the field. But most of all we were among the first to really celebrate wins by carrying our coach off the field. 

Coach Lombardi was tough. He drove us day and night. But we love him because he did everything with the sole goal of winning. He would always say “Winning isn't everything it is the only thing.” Coach put an enormous amount of pressure on the team to win. Extra practices. Repetition. Memorizing the play book.  Whatever it took.

When we won a game it took just a little pressure off for a time. We would go crazy. Coach would scold us and tell us that when we got to the end zone we should look like we had been there before. So we were always careful when we are on the field but once the game was over we would go crazy and pick up Coach and carry him off the field. Coach was alright with that because the focus was where it belonged. On him.

Mariah Carey went Black Friday shopping for a new boyfriend at supermarket so she shows off her pineapples!

Mariah’s supermarket getup is absolutely ridiculous 

New York Post Page Six By Jaclyn Hendricks November 25, 2016

Mariah Carey took the plunge — just not down that kind of aisle.
Fresh of her breakup from fiancé James Packer, Carey showed the world she’s back on the market — while at the market — in a ridiculous get-up during a Thanksgiving grocery-shopping trip in Hawaii.
Wearing a revealing white bodysuit paired with large diamond necklaces, skinny jeans and sky-high heels, Carey posed suggestively with a pair of pineapples and also for some tamer photos with fans.
Upon her return to Thanksgiving HQ, the mom of two prepped for the feast with friends before settling down to dinner with ex-husband Nick Cannon and their 5-year-old twins, Monroe and Moroccan. Cannon’s new baby mama, beauty queen Brittany Bell, was not in any of their social media photos.

Is alcohol losing its kick?

Boston Beer Company, the largest craft brewer in the US with brands that include Samuel Adams and Angry Orchard cider, said the widening legalisation of marijuana posed a risk to its sales.

“It is possible that legal marijuana usage could adversely impact the demand for the company’s products,” argued its regulatory filing in February. The Massachusetts-based brewer added: “We also believe that impacts the craft beer industry.”

In Massachusetts, the Beer Distributors’ PAC, an industry body, donated $25,000 this year to a campaign group fighting legalisation.

Trevor Stirling, analyst at Bernstein says it is understandable that Boston Beer — which makes almost all its sales in the US — would list legalisation as a risk factor, whereas the large international brewers, such as Anheuser-Busch InBev, the Budweiser brewer, do not.

“Craft beer tends to appeal to a younger and more hipster crowd who are also more likely to be smoking cannabis,” he said. “Whereas a typical Budweiser drinker — a blue collar industrialised worker — is less likely to smoke cannabis, so potentially there’s more risk for craft beer than for mainstream beer.”

Aiming lower, Liz Cheney wins father's old House seat

"Cheney and her husband bought a home in Wilson in 2012, and she ran for U.S. Senate in 2014 against Sen. Mike Enzi, though she dropped out of that race.
When asked what she would say to voters concerned about her dedication to Wyoming, Cheney said she is committed to being in the state often and being accessible.
She said she wants to continue the type of relationship Wyomingites have had with their congressional representatives and wants to work with those who voted for her, as well as those who voted against her.
“I’m absolutely dedicated to representing every single person all across the state,” she said..."

Rosie O'Donnell suggests Barron Trump is autistic

The lad fascinates me. I observed his behavior at Trump's last big speech to his supporters acknowledging his win, how he appeared somewhat baffled and followed directions to move forward and take position, first here, then there, him observing events around him and processing it all. It was very late at night, maybe early in the morning in New York.  I put myself in his position at ten years of age on stage, trying to comprehend what exactly is happening, and I must say I'm impressed with what I saw. But O'Donnell saw something else. In typical passive-agressive fashion, she cloaks her sinister heart with concern, "What an amazing opportunity to bring attention to the autism epidemic."

Such is the syllogism of a troubled mind. Premise A: autistic children are quiet. Premise B: Barron is quiet.  Conclusion: Barron is autistic. Suggestion: great opportunity to bring attention to autism. Aren't I wonderful?

Her concern, it's touching. Via Washington Times.

Twitter exposes the worse. The playground of Id.

But let's give her attention for something else instead of for her remarks about Barron. Credit where it's due, although pontificating here, she does seem a good sport. Eight mile rule and all that; tell them something they don't know about me.


Fidel Castro dead at age 90

He died 10:30 tonight. According to Raul Castro. Story at BBC. Actually, it's the story of Castro at BBC, not the story of his death. Nothing there that you don't already know. He died. That's it. That's the whole story.

The entire country is in mourning, weeping openly and choking, "Nuestro padre murió," and sobbing, "¿Qué tardó tanto?"

I made up that last part because there's really nothing anyone can say. He's old. He died.

Maybe it will work next time...

I drew this.

Hell needs a new PA Announcer.

Forcas: Will you be interviewing any new announcers my dread Lord. It has been a while.
Lucifer: Yeah we might as well. I am tired of doing it all. I am the Devil for crying out loud. I should be sitting around getting a blow job from an intern. Or golfing or something. You know what all the big shot demons from Hell do when they are in charge. Let's get someone else in here to make the announcements. Who do we have in the last bus?
Forcas: Well we have several people that will be coming in. We have a beloved diminutive rock star.  
Lucifer: Holy shit. That drunken loser Billy Joel is here? That’s great. He has to know he has to pay off on that deal that got a garden troll banging Christie Brinkley.
Forcas: No Sire it is not the Piano Man. He is still busy touring the music he wrote before 1985. We have the bi-sexual formerly known as Prince.
Lucifer: Oh that Purple Pansy. Who cares? Who else you got?
Forcas: We have Gwen Ifill the PBS anchor and one of your most loyal worshipers.
Lucifer: That loser. I hate ass kissers. What am I Trump? I want someone with a little juice and that bitch is as far away from juicy as you can get. Who else is on the bus?

Nobody to the right of me Cuckservatives to the left of me stuck in the middle with you,



So over the weekend I have heard a bunch of media pussies discuss the Alt-right and position them as the new manifestation of the SA. The cucks and the neocons and the GOPe and the mainstream media are swarming and attacking like the little fish that they use to give a pedicure in Bangkok.

The proximate cause was a conference held by Richard Spencer who is an ideologue, theorist and head of the NPI Institute. A couple of morons decided to be assholes and started to doing the Nazi salute to set off the rubes and hilarity ensued. They tried to out-Milo Milo but they didn't have his charm or the protection of being gay. So the media shit it's pants.

The Alt-right is the next step on the continuum that began with the Tea Party. Like the Tea Party it does not have a membership list or a set of rules. It is a loose accumulation of like minded individuals who have similar goals. The one overriding goal is that they are sick and tired. Sick of tired of being lecutured. Called Racist. Called Anti-Semites. Called Deplorable. And all the rest.

That is not to say that some elements are not as racist as the Black Lives Matters people in the Democratic Party or as Anti-Semitic as the Boycott Israel types like Blumenthal in Hillary's campaign. There are always people who take it too far.

The cuckmeister General Ben Shapiro of White Knight fame for that whore Michelle Fields had spouted this: "Basically, the alt-right is a group of thinkers who believe that Western civilization is inseparable from European ethnicity—which is racist, obviously. It’s people who believe that if Western civilization were to take in too many people of different colors and different ethnicities and different religions, then that would necessarily involve the interior collapse of Western civilization."
