Re: Schtupid Email Scams

About 10 years ago, I got an elaborate offer for fake certificates to "recognize my professional achievements" from some scammer in England. Now, could be they sent this select offer because their extensive research found that I'm not great at page design. But I'm betting they had no fucking idea th...

Fingers in the socket
No way for you to stop it, that rocket
C'mon, you get off on it

^ On the bright side, if you've been trying to get tested for 3 weeks, you were either uninfected or exposed and asymptomatic when this started.

Stay healthy, bro.

Re: More Stuff

There are two kinds of motorcycle riders. The ones who have wrecked, and the ones who are going to. I had a near-death experience on a motorcycle at 19, and I think that was the last time I ever drove one, though I've been a passenger now and then. My brother is a longtime deranged biker. He's as ca...

Re: March 12, 2020 (aka COVID-19 thread)

Well, that pjmedia piece is odious bullshit aimed at people who don't know anything about how molecular biology research is done, claiming that the worldwide research community doesn't know what it's doing. Hydroxychloroquine was investigated immediately in several countries, and it rapidly became o...

Re: Don't read this unless you're ready to cry

I have a very fine white-booted tuxedo cat and his calico sister right here in this room. Also had a very nice polydactyl cat in college, but he got run over in the street in front of the frat lodge, and I buried him in the back yard there. Hadn't thought of him in a long time. When cat get the oppo...

Re: More Stuff

Well, it looks like I'll have to go to trade school after all. Nobody who is hiring apprentices without any experience will call me after I apply. At the very least, they could have the courtesy to a person why they can't (won't) hire them, even when the posting has been up for several weeks. That ...

Re: March 12, 2020 (aka COVID-19 thread)

I work for the publishing office of a biology research society. Some of the editors and editorial board members, aside from their credentials as researchers, are practicing physicians doing COVID rotations in major university-affiliated hospitals. I'm not a biologist. I'm an overwound proofreader. B...

The best thing that ever came out of Maserati was the Citroen SM, and it Had Problems. Especially the one Burt Reynolds parked in the Savannah River. I've had cars I wanted to park in rivers. And an old friend used to sing a ditty she sorta stole from Neil Young: "Down by the river I shot my Volvo"

Re: Photo Album

Was in southwest Colorado last week- visited Mesa Verde, drove through Durango, Silverton, Ouray, Telluride, stayed in Ridgway, and visited The Black Canyon of the Gunnison. It was nice to be out of the Texas heat but not so great to be a flatlander staggering around at the local elevations. I'm no...

Re: Apologies for downtime

Typing was my worst subject in high school. Grades kept dropping, because I got up to 35 wpm (on a manual typewriter) and plateaued for the rest of the semester. Gods being the evil-minded jokers that they are, my doom was sealed. :twisted: That seems somewhat ironic, considering your username whic...

Re: Bad Jokes II

Some of the information signs on the Pennsylvania Turnpike are inconsistent from section to section. Brother and I have been arguing for decades over whether it's really necessary to be a lert, or if it's sufficient to just keep one in the trunk.
