  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Don’t know about mail from the US. This is what I was referencing: U.S. Will Remain in Postal Treaty After Emergency Talks I was a little concerned since I’ve been ordering things from Japan the past couple years, and the...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    But Cohen wrote something like 70 verses for that song, and would pick and choose which to sing depending on his mood. Possibly something there that would work, but all anybody seems to sing is the Buckley version, though he...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    AIUI, China is still classified as a ‘developing nation’ in decades old treaties with the US, like the one for international mail, that the Rump nearly scuttled, which would have upped postage costs from overseas....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Those of their cousins who stayed disappeared in 1942 ... My great-grandparents and their siblings left the Pale of Settlement about the same time as your relatives, my mother was denied a security clearance in the Army because of the...
  • Commented on Creative writing challenge!
    I think Fraud Guarantee needs a mention, presumably connected to the other party in Rude’s call....
  • Commented on Normal service will be resumed eventually
    Also here to say “May their memories be a blessing” (however you choose to take that). I don’t know if expecting a loss makes recovery quicker, but may you and your siblings be well....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    the older generation spoke with a German accent and had numbers tattooed on their arms; they were the lucky ones.) Unfortunately they’ll be gone soon, and we’ll be sorely lacking in living witnesses. I occasionally remind people that those “old...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    In reference to a photo all over Twitter: How could anyone resist the urge not to come down the aisle and ‘accidentally’ knock Wee-Smugg off the bench? Also, it seems no matter the lighting his nose casts a shadow of...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Sorry, late with a reply: Which US state & who is the new Guvnor? That’d be Colorado Governor Jared Polis, he’s got some minor issues, but nothing sane people would recall him over. And at least he’s not a Retrumplican....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Oh, and as someone else offered a spare room; I’d be tempted to offer ours, but we’re in the middle of Trumplandia. On my way home this afternoon I passed a table set up on the side of the road...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Rather late, and not entirely sure wtf is going on over there, anyhow... I wouldn’t really expect ‘lizabeth to say No! to anything, but what if she said “We strongly suggest that you do not do this thing that will...
  • 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”...
