    Yep, that’s what I’m thinking, too. After all, they’re in Romania… And before anyone says “no, Oldbikefixer, that’s Transylvania”, I’ll correct you by saying vampires come from Romania, and the Frankenstein monster is from Transylvania… I’m still not sure where the Werewolf calls home. And, what about the Creature From the Black Lagoon, a.k.a. Gillman? Where the heck is the Black Lagoon located?

    Am I reading this correctly? Does the story say that “scientists” were basing the age of the footprints on some bones from a bear? Really? I guess they have some sort of concrete evidence (not put forth in the story) that the bear was in the cave at the same time as the humans that made the footprints.

    I guess they never considered that maybe the humans were in the cave long after, or much earlier than the bear, or that the bones of the bear might have been placed in the cave by somebody else, and not by the folks who left their footprints on the cave floor.

    I bet these “scientists” went to the same university as the girl who does the weather report on my local TV station. Yep… she’s always wrong, too.

    Thank you, NativeLanguage, on behalf of everyone here who is concerned about the rapid decline of America’s ability to speak and write their own language.

    There probably ain’t much tequila in Turkey, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they were hitting the ol’ Ouzo bottle more than a few times a day.

    Most “old fashioned” things are still quite useable. But, why are the Germans insisting on manual, non-electric typewriters? The old IBM “Selectric” is certainly not internet-compatible, but is much easier and faster than its non-electric predecessors.

    Anyway, here are a few more “old fashioned” things that you may find useful, especially if things here in America get as bad as what many of us think they might get…

    1) Cars that use breaker-points for ignition, and a carburetor – they won’t be affected if we get slammed with an electro-magnetinc pulse (EMP) device.
    2) Can openers that are cranked by hand – see no. 1
    3) Charcoal grilles
    4) Walkie-Talkies & CB radios (especially mobile, 12-volt DC units)

    Modern technology has never really impressed me. Nowadays, folks seem to be totally dependent on their “smart” phones and other mobile devices, and I often get asked why I’m not on Facebook. I just answer that I have other, more important, REAL things to do with my time.

    Why was this woman arrested? I remember being 9 years old… I would leave the house on my bicycle first thing in the morning, and not return home until dinner-time, usually around 6 pm, eat dinner, and rush back out again. I would be outside with my friends, building forts in the woods, exploring our “neighborhood” (which was just about anywhere we could get to on foot or bicycle), or building, driving, and usually crashing home-made go-karts that we would construct from the remnants of lawnmowers, farm equipment, and abandoned buildings.

    Nowadays, we act as if a child playing outside without adult supervision is a horrible thing. I say “bull$h¡t”. Let kids be kids. Let them play and learn how to do things on their own.

    Sure, there are evil people out there who will harm children, but there always been, even back in the “good ol’ days”. Today, the media pushes stories about those things because those stories generate higher ratings. However, the world hasn’t changed that much in the 40 or so years that have passed since I was a kid. Politics and the news media have, but after a while, you learn to ignore those 2 things. Life is much better if you can do that.

    If we start building a fence using the bones of dead illegal aliens, it could prove to be just the deterrent we need.

    If every REAL American living in the infected border states would be granted permission to “shoot on sight” when spotting anyone entering America’s borders illegally, this problem would be solved immediately.

    Not bad, but I think being dropped slowly, feet-first, into a wood chipper would be a better reward for this creep. Either that, or toss him into a cage with a few dozen rabid raccoons.

    Obvioisly, somebody paid the judge a huge amount of cash to set this scumbag free. And not only is he allowed to live as a free man, he’s also getting his very expensive rent paid for by the taxpayers, as well as 24-hour protection, which probably costs even more than his rent. Did the corrupt judge also give Mr. Rapist a free Mercedes, sign him up for food stamps, welfare, and Obamacare, and get his cable & internet hooked up, all courtesy of the taxpayers?

    Hmmm… I’m sick or working hard to pay my mortgage and other bills. I’m just gonna move to California, commit some horrible crimes that will destroy a bunch of other people’s lives, than kick back and enjoy the laid-back, good life that I’ll be awarded for being such a “model citizen”.

    Freenj, her name was “Barbara”, not Martha.

    These “scientists” must all be young kids who don’t remember the days of A.M. (amplitude modulated) radio. Back in the day, before mp3 downloads, CDs, or even F.M. (frequency modulated) radio, we had A.M. radio. The frequency band ranged from about 550 KHz to 1600 KHz, and it worked extraordinarily well for well over 50 years. Then in the 1970′s, F.M. radio became much more popular than A.M. radio, mainly due to the fact the A.M. radios weren’t very good at filtering out an irritating phenomenon known as “static”, which would produce little pops, hisses, and other undesirable noise, sometimes to the extent that the music or whatever else was being broadcast couldn’t be heard or understood.

    These “bursts” being picked up at the observatory are likely just static, and the fact that they could be originating from deep space is of very little importance. Static is produced constanly from an unimaginable number of different sources. Studying thses bursts is a waste of time, not to mention all that very expensive equipment.

    You hit the nail on the head, Kaitara! This fatugly (yes, that’s one word) sasquatch knows that her chances of ever finding a guy who would willingly put his winky into her are pretty slim… way slimmer than her bulging waistline. In order to make up for that, she professes that she thinks murdering babies is a wonderful form of entertainment. Kinda like a guy who can’t afford a nice car, so he claims that if he was ever given a new Corvette, he would just set it on fire to watch it burn.

    She’s just another liberal, (ab)using her first amendment right to try to stifle the first amendment rights of those whom she disagrees with. Ho-hum… just another day in Liberal land, where nothing ever changes, unless it changes for the worse.

    Junkman, I might put a resistor in the line of one of my tail lights, in order to actually make the light without the resistor brighter. I’ll do this to my current beatermobile (1989 Mercury Tracer), and also to my 2011 Mecedes Benz SLC that only gets driven a couple times a year. Do you think the Benz will get pulled over? Me neither…

  • [9] July 9, 2014 at 1:52pm

    A few years ago, I was pulled over, and my car was thoroughly searched by Mt. Lebanon (just outside of Pittsburgh, PA). The cops claimed the stop was because “one of the tail lights is brighter than the other.” Yes, really. One of the cops then asked me if “I decorated the car”, referring to the 3 or 4 Grateful Dead stickers that were on the hatchback… of course, this tipped me off to the fact that the real reason for pulling me over was that the cops assumed they would find a whacked-out stoner behind the wheel, or at least a roach in the ashtray. To their chagrin, I happen to despise marijuana use, and as I was on my way home from work, I was dressed in “office casual” apparel, and completely sober.

    It really ticked them off, because the car was a total beatermobile that leaked oil constantly, and everything they took out of the trunk was coated with grease & oil from years of carrying half-empy oil containers.

    The kicker? At the time, I worked as an I.T. geek at a local hospital, and would often see those very same cops when they would bring DUI jerks in. They always acted as if nothing happened, but I wouldn’t even acknowledge their presence after their completely unnecessary traffic stop. However, I never got pulled over again.

    Canadaboy, you just made my day! As soon as I read the name “Finklestein”, I immediately thought of Cheech & Chong’s movie “Up in Smoke”. In the opening scene, Tommy Chong’s “father” is heard yelling “…you get a job by sundown, or we’re shipping you off to military school with that God-damned Finklestein $h¡T kid…. son of a BITCH!”

    Whenever I hear or read a name even remotely similar to “Finklestein”, that line pops into my head. I guess I’m not the only person with that “affliction”.

    While you’re on YouTube, search “worst drivers” or “driver fail”. You’ll quickly realize that most of the horrific accidents caught on video are from Russia. Those crazy Communists have got to be the world’s worst drivers! No idea why that is, but if I’m ever forced to visit any of the Easter Bloc countries, I won’t ever chance getting in a car while I’m there!

    “…lesbian mothers…”? If a woman chooses to be a lesbian, she is pretty much guaranteed not to become a mother. I guess there always exists the possibility that she decided she didn’t like men AFTER having a child, which is completely understandable.

    First off, Sir Elton, Jesus is indeed alive today! He walks on streets of gold in Heaven, and let’s be honest here, if we could do the same, we would.

    Secondly, I agree that Catholic priests should indeed be allowed to marry.

    Finally, you or I cannot and should not presume to know what Jesus would say about gay marriage and homosexual relationships, or anything else for that matter. However, since God the Father designed the human body to function in certain ways, the argument could be made that Jesus would at least encourage us to behave in a manner conducive to the way that our bodies were designed to function.

    Easy solution here – dose her next meal with some “sleepy nite-nite” additives. While she’s zonked out, carry her and all of her belongings out to a van, and gently place her and her stuff on a nice, warm sidewalk… perhaps in the Watts or South Compton sections of Los Angeles. A hundred bucks sez she’ll never give anyone a hard time again.

    This solution worked great for my neighbor’s nut-case ex-girlfriend who stubbornly refused to leave his house even though they had split months before, and he had began seeing other women. I sometimes wonder what ever happened to her…

    Seems like there are 2 distinct groups – soccer lovers and soccer haters… no in-between. Personally, I think sports in general are a huge waste of time, but I will offer a solution. The world needs a new sport that combines athleticism, intellegence and just enough violence to keep it interesting, and therefore, marketable. I formally submit here my idea for the perfect sport:

    1) In order to be eligible for a team, all players must be college graduates with degrees in physics, engineering, or science. Marketing, sociology, business, etc., degrees will not be accepted.
    2) Scores made by players who have been awarded a patent will count as double points.
    3) Any player incurring a penalty of any kind will be executed immediately. Wearing pink or green shoes is a penalty, and will be treated as such.
    4) The ball will be a standard 16 lb. bowling ball, but with no finger holes.

    The basic object of the game is to get the ball into a trash can-sized container that also contains just enough nitro-glycerin to blast the ball back out if it’s thrown in too quickly.

    Sounds like a fantastic sport, huh? I bet it could replace just about everything else on TV, so sponsorship would not be a problem. Of course, I haven’t worked out all of the rules yet, but feel free to submit any ideas that could add to this exciting new sport!
