Re: Bad Jokes II

Hey - know what the difference is between a trombone and a chainsaw? Sometimes you can get a chainsaw in tune. There's another difference. You've never seen a horror/slasher movie in which innocent victims are messily slaughtered by a trombone-wielding maniac. You never will. There are some depths ...

Re: Bad Jokes II

That's supposed to be music? Must be jazz, which is the musical equivalent of letting preschoolers break into the band room and abuse the instruments. Oh, if you want to talk about musical abuse of perfectly good instruments, there is much, much worse out there. Here the most serious example of tha...

Re: Schtupid Email Scams

Apparently the scammers hit area codes with Chinese residents and don't bother with any finer targeting. They spoof a legitimate consulate phone number and try to get people to connect to a live scammer. Yeah, I've gotten a couple of those on my cellphone. Since the only Mandarin I know is a tan Ge...

Sometimes I think PT Barnum wasn't pessimistic enough. Man... as hash-busters go, those message bodies are really something. I now see the downside to running my own mail servers and doing my own quite-vigorous spam blocking. I'm obviously missing out on a whole slice of the too-ridiculous-to-be-be...

Re: Something's Missing

I'll try to look at the settings in Wordpress tomorrow, but I'm not sure why you'd be getting blocked by IP address, unless you're SERIOUSLY moving fast through the site. A few thoughts. The Lionscript blocker site suggests that the script can block addresses based on "suspicious activities"... the...

Could not change a damn light bulb without screwing it up.
But depending on the fixture it goes into, that might be the correct procedure - either for removing the old bulb, or installing the new one.

For some reason, nobody's shocked when a defibrillator fails. You'd think that would be rather concerning.
If it was a musician who had suffered a heart attack, it would definitely be disconcerting.

We can hope it goes that well... but it might not. Blind lust can open a window onto all sorts of jalousies, and I shutter to think what might result (there are even tales of slat-shaming taking place). I think you need to make a contribution to the pun jar for that crank post. Or look up jalousie ...

I'm wondering about unexpected relationships . . . maybe to Thana?
Interesting idea! I don't think we've ever seen a portrayal of another member of Thana's para species before, have we? We don't really know what Thana is, other than the informal "devil girl" term?

Re: Schtupid Email Scams

Virus-free. www.avast.com btw- It's really reassuring to find you this scam is been screened as 'virus free'... For some reason, the scammers haven't paid for the optional upgrade to Avast which unlocks the modules that detect lies, sleaze, and slime. Pity about that, really. You'd think that the u...

Pine, and bayberry, and citrus... that's one thing. It would be different (and perhaps tough on her...

I wonder, though, if this isn't all a historical misunderstanding. It's not about Halloween. Or coffee, or eggnog, "pumpkin spice" or otherwise. It's not about Christmas... it's much older than that holiday, and quite pagan. You could say it's about Octoberfest, and ale. In fact it dates back to the...
