That can't be right, because there's no way to make it into an easily digestible soundbite.



But, seriously, thanks, Cain.

I don't really follow the news much, but the Paris attacks really got my attention - probably because the situation at the Bataclan was a . . . how do you say . . . relate-able environment?

Anyhow,  I did a bunch of reading and I found this article which I feel is a pretty likely explanation for why this mess exists in the first place.

essentially saying that the syrian civil war and resulting jihadist bullshit started over conflicting interests regarding a pipeline through Syria.

I thought the article was enlightening, so I thought I would share.

Also, if anyone thinks the article is bullshit, I'd like to know about it and why.

isn't "nursing" another word for "breast-feeding?"

what about all that money you won at the casino?

I have started waking up gripped with The Fear.

a long time ago, my friends and i would say "i have The Fear" as a euphemism for "i have to go take a shit"

I just want to say that this truly authentic flavor in Old Milwaukee outshines my memory of it. This holiday is terrible.

One can down, a five pack of unfiltered awesome to go.  :sad:

it's an acquired taste, but once acquired it will never leave you

almost got punched for telling this joke to a guy who was half finnish, half swedish:

what do you call a dumb finlander?  a swede

in a tattoo shop bathroom, i saw a sign that said 

"employees must wash hands.  if unable to locate an employee, feel free to wash your own hands"

i chuckled

i have 13 clocks.

one of them i made - it's a hammer sillhouette on a red octagon (get it?  get it?)

i also really like my "kit kat" clock

i'd really like to get an hour glass or two.  like real ones that actually take an hour.  do they count as a clock?  i also have a metronome - it's kind of like a clock, I guess.

One of my favorite Clutch songs is called "The Regulator"  -  which is a type of clock.  My grandmother had one on her wall - I always like that clock, too.

It looked like this:

I always thought it was cool how the Roman numeral "4" was IIII instead of IV - like, what's up with that??

these chain clocks are pretty cool

Eternal life <=> procrastination level = expert

Anyone?  ?  ?      Anyone?  ?  ?

Stop listening to whatever you have on, and listen to this Ukranian band, Dakhabrakha.  They call their music "Ethno-chaos".

It's really, really good.

that's pretty cool - thanks for sharing

been on 12 mg nicotine and feeling fine for the last week or so. 

i also picked up some propylene glycol and vegetable glycerine and tried diluting my older 24mg stuff down to what i figure is approx 12 mg and it tastes fine.

i burned my last (open) pack of cigarettes and gave away the "emergency" pack that i was keeping in my work locker.  i just don't like them anymore.

i've been keeping track of expenditures and, even though i've bought 3 batteries, 4 tanks (gotta have backups for the backups) and way more juice than i need i figure i'm about $100 ahead of where i'd be if i was still smoking regular cigs. 

i should have enough supply to last me til January or February.

it's unreal how much better it is and how much cheaper it is.
