  • Commented on Upcoming events
    That’d be Fred Jr., of course it’s all just a rumor, and not like he ended up poor. Just one article that comes up googling: https://bigleaguepolitics.com/koch-brothers-blackmailed-their-allegedly-gay-brother/...
  • Commented on Upcoming events
    Oh yeah, meant to add that I’m counting down to the BS hagiographies to start coming out....
  • Commented on Upcoming events
    Yeah, just came by to say (because of Charlie’s tweet about it): So the guy who blackmailed his older, gay brother out of his share of the family fortune, and bankrolled the Tea Party, etc. is dead. Ain’t that a...
  • Commented on Upcoming events
    I really don’t want to rant on about Donnie’s latest expression of senility (really what else to call his ridiculousness about Greenland? I assume he thinks it’ll go down as The Great Trump Purchase—Believe Me). Or his anti-semitic dogwhistle, basically...
  • Commented on Upcoming events
    Apologies, can’t help myself: Old Man Shoots At Clouds Paws@35: Ever used a Dyson Airblade? Aren’t those the dryers that supposedly spew germs all over? I’ve a Dyson vacuum, but it’s at least 10 years old, works well though emptying...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    Agreed. My ‘people who don’t know better’ left out ...because they don’t read, to keep it short. That and it’s early here—GMT-7....
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    No problem, I didn’t think you were implying that, I just wanted to make clear that I wasn’t either. There’s enough bits of Yiddish in American English to easily think there might be a connection....
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    I should say that I don’t think that it comes Yiddish, just what it might be if there’s an equivalent in the language. Also, I don’t agree with Charlie that it’s the standard US idiom. I’ve only ever seen used...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    Random question: Is there a Yiddish version? I don’t know if there’s an actual saying, but I’d say your close, it’ll probably translate more as “Nu? I should care less?” meaning, of course, that I could not care less....
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    Rather off topic, but this is a good reminder of how the modern Republican Party is no longer “the party of Lincoln” in any meaningful way. You know who was into Karl Marx? No, not AOC. Abraham Lincoln....
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    death upon the unbelievers (starting with the folks down the road they've had a doctrinal dispute with since 602AD). I’m nearly convinced that Mohammad bone Sawman, would very much like for the US to go to war with Iran, so...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    Well, it is possible to hold a vote of no confidence Right, that’s the term I couldn’t think of this morning(too early), and is mentioned in the OP, as well as several comments....
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    Much sympathy to you all. Any chance of a recall vote, or something of that sort?...
  • Commented on Ask me anything!
    a great interest in American Genealogy, including among "white" southerners. A number of fairly proud "white" southerners of my acquaintance found unwanted surprises lurking the branches when they went to trace their family trees. Now of course with cheap DNA...
  • Commented on Ask me anything!
    I always wonder - why is a fancy "-ity" term required for something which is so self-evident? ‘cause Common Sense ain’t so common, as someone once said....
  • Commented on Ask me anything!
    Whenever I see someone complaining about SJWs, I instantly think they’re White Supremacist types, the comments always seem to have an anti-semitic component. I’ve read many articles of people explaining why they became a Rabbi, or converted to Judaism, and...
  • Commented on Ask me anything!
    What about Jimmy Carter? He started as a peanut farmer (although I can't say which amount of physical labour he did himself). I don’t know how much physical farming he did either, but he certainly did plenty of physical labor...
  • Commented on Ask me anything!
    Not calling BS on the SEAL cross-country story, but I suspect the 3 hours is either exaggeration or mis-remembered. I seem to recall a similar story of a general having to be rushed from CA to DC (don’t know when),...
  • Commented on Ask me anything!
    the haunted house itself shows up in "Dead Lies Dreaming", and the other stuff from that project is earmarked for "Prime Cuts" (assuming that title survives Cool, looking forward to it. Haven’t looked, but the only thing titled “Prime Cuts”...
  • Commented on Ask me anything!
    IIRC, a few years ago you mentioned that you were thinking of writing an "Architectural Gothic"*/Haunted House novel, has that idea been scrapped and forgotten, or are bits likely to show up elsewhere? *or something like that....
  • Commented on Social architecture and the house of tomorrow
    Are you sure it was 'V' for Victory? Even I know that it matters which way the hand is oriented. Oy. That was the joke, Donnie wouldn’t know the difference. See also his tweets about the tremendous crowds of supporters...
  • Commented on Social architecture and the house of tomorrow
    Some random-ish comments: A mostly made up Donnie the Rump quote: “There were thousands of people lining the streets of London as we went by, they were all giving the ‘V for victory’ sign with both hands. It was fantastic!”...
  • Commented on CMAP #16: Book Title Blues
    I wonder about Nigel as a name and a subliminal connection with a certain N-word? This is what I was hinting at @228....
  • Commented on CMAP #16: Book Title Blues
    I missed very nearly being a Nigel. Thankfully my parents had second thoughts, possibly because we lived in the American South at the time—I can imagine rotten kids calling me by something similar. And of course, in the early 80s...
  • Commented on CMAP #16: Book Title Blues
    Erm.....Congratulations on the beginning of a new Scottish Independence campaign? Or too soon to tell?...
  • Commented on Social architecture and the house of tomorrow
    I'm still waiting for a Jew to tell me to come back to the religion of my ancestors. That reminds me of Chabadniks on the street corners of Manhattan (and elsewhere I assume—they’re everywhere), looking for any Jewish looking man...
  • Commented on Social architecture and the house of tomorrow
    Responding to various comments. WRT "Messianic Jews" and Jews for Jesus™ particularly. What Charlie says, and I'll add a little. I've had a few dealings with some, one thing to know is that the are very much Evangelicals of a...

    For everyone’s entertainment(?): “Why Aren’t Millennials Continuing Traditional Worship of the Elder Dark?” by Matt Dovey...
  • Commented on Upcoming appearances
    Well, shoot (to be polite). As usual I should have looked up the source, and not relied on my memory—it’s been a while since I read it. Apparently what I said above must’ve been my own etymology of the word...
  • Commented on Upcoming appearances
    WRT "Waist Deep in the Big Muddy" (great song), and Filking: I first learned of Filksinging in an autobiographical music book by Pete Seeger where he talks about it being a portmanteau of Filch and Folksinging, but no mention of...
