I'm awake right now because the ice that made my commutes today (another two and a half hours on the return trip, btw) led to a power outage at the GF's apartments, which led to candles for light, which led to....I hope everyone in the next building over is okay.

 My GF is hilariously bad in a crisis situation. I'm all dragging my groggy ass out of bed, slowly lacing my boots, the kids are moving quickly but more-or-less calmly, while she literally runs around in circles screaming, "911! 911! Where are the dogs? Oh my God, Jeremy! There's a fire. 911!"

Damn quick response from the fire department and Portland rain kept the fire from jumping, but the whole top floor of the next building is done. Hope everyone's okay.

HAHAHA THE HITS JUST KEEP COMING!

Now my stepdad is in the hospital. Mom's a wreck trying to go to work, visit him twice a day, and keep up the house and take care of the dogs. And I'm still broke from the death trip to Maine and can't fly down to help out.

Shit, man. Where are they? That juggling act is no joke.

He's got a youtube video, though.  Gotta give him that.

Yep. Shit went on at "Boys Town". Yes there's secret criminal activity in the world, top to bottom.

What's funny is his posturing for moral superiority based on his ability to link to YouTube when he has that frog hanging out of his ass that he claims to worship and thinks is just a big old kek.

Kinda emblematic of his whole shtick really.

poser mage,
poser moralist,
poser "Christian",
wannabe Disco,
wannabe RP

Takes himself REAL seriously
Even as he seriously gets taken

When did I pretend to be Christian? And what do you consider to be a "real" mage?

I consider a real mage to be someone who can produce magical effects for an open minded but skeptical observer.  Predicting an election is not enough, if you are going to do prediction you need to predict something which a much lower probability.  Or else reliably predict at a higher rate than probability.

This is good stuff, but it's wasted on RP. You literally might as well be talking to a seagull.

"Sure Bill Clinton has multiple rape accusations, ties to human traffickers, is friends a convicted pedophile and rode to his sex slave island. But that doesnt mean anything, these could all just be lies made up by Trump a year before he started his campaign."

"This is good stuff. Nuanced truth."

:lulz:

It thinks I'm talking TO it.

Get down on the floor and play with your kids.



The Book With No Pictures by BJ Novak is a lot of fun for kids.
Books by Julia Donaldson are great, too.  They're written with a rhythm and vocabulary that is really enjoyable to read.  The Gruffalo and Snail & The Whale are two favourites here.

A youtube video with interviews with former head of the CIA Allen Dulles and former Congressman John DeCamp as well as numerous government officials who were involved in the case. But it is important to understand that these people did not speak with the official sanction of the priesthood. In fact the priesthood pulled this documentary before it even aired!

No, please, do detail your objection to snopes. Which bastion of objectivity dislikes them? Zero hedge?

God SMART PEOPLEtm sure are obsessed with appeals to authority.

Judging from all the pro-Trump headlines in all the tabloids in the checkout lanes, I'll wager a my entire Mike Warnke collection that Bat-Boy will soon be appointed Head of the National Bureau of Alt-Science.
The Weekly World News that featured Bat Boy went defunct ages ago in 2007.

The only ones left are nearly believable ones. No fun left in tabloids, at least from what I recall from packing those into boxes to ship out to supermarkets.

It makes me sad to think about it.
