Peanuts is being re-run on GoComics. “Jesus!” is a comment under this one. I laughed.

Acoustic “I Want to Tell You about What I Want”

Norm MacDonald is another in a series of ‘3 Stooges’ kind of guys, not that his humor is any kind of the same, but that women don’t get him. What the fuck up is with women?

From the dawn of the net. Probably mostly Bboard days. I discovered this at the very end, where these people were months from moving on. I miss those days sometimes.

Bowling is Gross and Weird

I stopped bowling because putting on shoes that are not mine is gross and weird. In the nineties, I guess.

Don’t ask me to don somebody else’s clothing. How did that even become a thing.

More Legroom

If I pay you an extra fifty dollars, I don’t want you to pinch me less hard, I want you to stop fucking pinching me. That’s why “more legroom” coach is such a hard sell. Yes, it’s better than regular coach, but it’s not good.

It’s as if I’m being asked by the cook to pay him an extra dollar so he’ll over-salt my potatoes slightly less. Oh, it’ll still taste like salty shit, but slightly less salty shit.

Welcome back to the eighties

Yosemite hikes as a twenty-something many times had Translator as the soundtrack.

Big Idea

If you wet a pizza box beforehand, you can squeeze it down to its atomic components, which will allow it to fit in the smallest, least hefty garbage bags (this is really my best gift to western civilization, you’re welcome)

Welcome back to the eighties. We’ve missed you.

There’s a possibility I wouldn’t like these guys if I knew more about them, so I refuse to know anything more.

The difference between the fiftieth time

and the five hundredth.

Wouldn’t it be great if every time were the fiftieth time?

Just give it to them


“This way, Mexico will have to pay much less money [for the wall]. And that’s good, right? Is that good?”

I think Trevor’s team missed the point of Trump’s statement, which to me was just a back-handed, veiled dig that reiterated his witless promise to still make Mexico pay for the wall. Why people ever believed that would happen, and why people still believe it, is just a preposterous mystery. As a plot device in a moronic thriller: 1 star.

“I love all people, rich or poor. But in those particular [cabinet] positions, I just don’t want a poor person. Does that make sense?”

Trevor’s larger point that Trump’s supporters fully, utterly support Trump no matter what he says or does is right on target. He is the loudest idiot in a room-full of god damned idiots.

In fact, at this point, my feeling is that we need to let the Republicans pass this health bill as is.

The Democrats will get zero credit with these people for trying to mitigate the more horrific parts of the bill. If a watered-down version, a version that isn’t quite so draconian, gets passed, the Democrats will be blamed for it. “It’s not working because we didn’t get everything we wanted in it” will be said quite loudly, and the clapping people in this video will agree with that, because that’s what they do. People will be miserable, but many of them will blame the Democrats for it.

If, however, the bill passes in its entirety, there will be misery, on a massive scale. The people in this video will suffer. If this bill passes with no input from the left, the cause-and-effect relationship will be as clear as it ever can be.

Just let it pass. It may be the only way to open their eyes.

Or it may not be enough. In which case, we’ll finally know exactly where we stand.


Here’s a thing about being an elitist that didn’t used to be true: if you’re not a god damned moron, you’re an elitist.
