Signs for Peasants

6 Aug

Sorry for my inactivity around here, but school crap and out-of-town visitors have been interfering in my life.

Forget the bridge, we’re talking sharp edges!!

Yes, people, the other right.

Well, we don’t read, so that’s ok.

That means Dick will have to go to the bank first.

Y’all have a great Thursday 🙂

    I have the stupid question for today: when you pronounce “poat”, is it pronounced like “pote”, or “pwat” like someone farting in the bathtub?

  2. clintbird August 6, 2011 at 10:04 am #

    Pote, Og, not to be confused with Poot, which is sometimes discussed at this dump, not to be confused with taking a dump.

  3. Og August 6, 2011 at 10:11 am #

    Bummer. I liked the farting in the bathtub imagery myself.

  4. roamingfirehydrant August 6, 2011 at 10:13 am #

    Yay! Aggie’s poat finally made it.

  5. clintbird August 6, 2011 at 10:18 am #

    Og, if I’m not mistaken, we would therefore have to call it “Pffftttthhhhoooaaatttting.”

    And thus typos become terms…

  7. LC Aggie Sith August 6, 2011 at 10:26 am #

    All languages evolve every 500 years. We Peasants are doing our part to hasten that along.

    And Good MORNING!!!!!!!!!!

    I *heart* this poat 😀

    Has anyone found an ‘A’ lying around? One seems to have fallen off our credit rating somewhere.
    It must have been an accident because Congress passed that deal…

    Maybe King Putt’s speeches will start talking about taking rich people’s credit ratings now..

  9. LC Aggie Sith August 6, 2011 at 10:29 am #

    Oh, BisW, you’ll be interested to know (no, not really) that the Rott thread has been edited. Several comments by the token liberal were removed.

    I *heart* drama, too.

    I bet you a dollar to a salmon patty that the Prez picked it up, and is using it for his “grade”.

  11. Og August 6, 2011 at 10:40 am #

    President wingnuthead fuckmonkey can flap his cocksocket all he wants he’ll always be the most useless turd in the oval toilet/office. The only thing he earns an A in is chugging cock.

  12. LC Aggie Sith August 6, 2011 at 10:42 am #

    Looks like Og is winning the comments today!!! 😀

  13. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere August 6, 2011 at 11:23 am #

    It has long been obvious to all observers — to economists, to politicians, to anti-deficit groups, to the ratings agencies — that closing fiscal gaps will require tax increases, or the closure of big tax loopholes, or significant tax reform that will raise significantly larger sums of tax revenue than the system does now. Today, taxes as a percentage of GDP are at historic lows. Marginal rates on income and investments are at historic lows. Corporate tax receipts as a percentage of GDP are at historic lows. Perhaps taxes don’t need to rise this year or next, but they do need to go up in the future.

    Fuck you very much, Daniel Gross. You could make phenomenal headway towards reducing the deficit if government quit spending money on shit it has NO FUCKING BUSINESS paying for. Assmunch…

    He seems to think that once a program is funded, it is to be funded for all eternity, since he never mentions cutting them.

    What a fucktard.

  15. Guy S August 6, 2011 at 11:44 am #

    Noticed the little note on the right side of the Rotties page, about the resident liberal being on “sabbatical”. The drama is indeed strong on that one.

    Oh, and good morning fellow terrorists!!

  16. LC Aggie Sith August 6, 2011 at 11:46 am #

    Hey, Guy!

    Yeah, I saw on his FB page that he was leaving for a while. It could be due to work, though. Either way, his erasing of his comments makes it highly suspect, since his FB post came around the same time 😉

  17. Dick August 6, 2011 at 11:48 am #

    Just got in from my Saturday morning visit with my dad.
    I’ll let y’all figure out which one of us is grouchier.

  18. Guy S August 6, 2011 at 11:54 am #

    If ya are able (no jobs pending) why not take Kelly , and get away from the madness for the day (or even the weekend). The world going to hell in a hand basket is not going to get there any quicker if you and your better half can take a bit of time off together. Plus thinking about her, vice whatever made ya grouchy, might just make the day go better, and help you recharge the batteries a bit.

    In any case, hope things get progressively better for ya.

  19. Dick August 6, 2011 at 11:59 am #

    Lazy day here in Kelly and Dick world.
    Got some cleaning and straightening up to do, but not much else on the agenda.

  20. LC Aggie Sith August 6, 2011 at 12:07 pm #

    I’ll let y’all figure out which one of us is grouchier.

    I’ll go with Og.

  21. GuyS August 6, 2011 at 12:09 pm #

    Yeah, Og does have to face “the traffic of the damned” come Monday!

  22. clintbird August 6, 2011 at 12:09 pm #

    Damn! More than 20 of the dead in today’s copter crash were from the Navy Seal unit that took out UBL.

  23. Dick August 6, 2011 at 12:11 pm #

    I’ll go with Og.

    You’d be wrong.

  24. LC Aggie Sith August 6, 2011 at 12:12 pm #

    I know, CB. That was heartbreaking 😦

  25. Dick August 6, 2011 at 12:13 pm #

    CB, I hate to say it, but that kind of shit is a typical day work hazard.
    Wonder how the Liberal Left will celebrate?

  26. GuyS August 6, 2011 at 12:22 pm #

    Don’t remember exactly where I read it, it most likely was the Navy’s Aviation Safety Magazine, “Approach”, but there are aprox 150-200 deaths each year attributed to the hazardous nature of Navy aviation (on or off the Carriers). I would guess the same percentages apply to the other branches as well, with those in “hot LZ’s” being much much higher.

    Yeah, Dick is right. On both counts.

  27. Dick August 6, 2011 at 12:25 pm #

    After reading the Fox news story, I have a feeling they were given up by somebody and this just might’ve been payback for Bin Laden.

  28. Dick August 6, 2011 at 12:27 pm #

    I couldn’t tell you how many hours of flight time I had on UH-1 Huey, lower than tree level following rivers and creeks, usually turned sideways.

  29. LC Aggie Sith August 6, 2011 at 12:32 pm #

    I’m sorry you are grouchy, Dick.

    Too early for a drink. Too late for a doughnut.

  30. terribletroy August 6, 2011 at 12:38 pm #

    25 SEALS (I believe) casualties represent the single greatest loss for the Teams in their history. The speculation that some of those lost were from Dev-Group and were from the same unit that “handled” OBL is highly unlikley, but it makes for a good cover to get people to stop looking for you.

    The shit at the Rott is just sad. Frankly, Misha should have addressed the two instigators awhile back. I’ve adopted a policy of autoignore for the parties in question.

  31. LC Aggie Sith August 6, 2011 at 12:47 pm #

    but it makes for a good cover to get people to stop looking for you.

    Now there’s a thought…

    As to the “autoignore”, that is also my policy from now on. Of course, one of the parties has taken leave, so that will be much easier 😉

    Prayers needed (posted on FB about an hour ago):

    Cassy Chesser:
    I need everyone to pray for James Hicks. He is a Marine and the nephew of one of my friends, and he was hit by an IED yesterday. He is in a coma and his brain is hemorrhaging. We need all your prayers to help him pull through.

    And Dick, I was thinking along those very same lines regarding whether this was intentional, or just a terrible, terrible coincidence. Those guys do go in where angels fear to tread…..

  33. Dick August 6, 2011 at 12:53 pm #

    Not good, Teresa. Hope he pulls through.

  34. LC Aggie Sith August 6, 2011 at 12:55 pm #

    Prayers sent, Teresa.

    @ Aggie

    DJ mentioned in one of his posts that he was “dealing with his own immortality” this was in the context of Rogue asking him what the hell his problem was (being so antagonistic). DJ had a medical event last year (or maybe the year before) involving his brain. It is possible that the beast has raised its head again. Then again, he could having been just fishing for a sympathy angle to excuse his behavior. There has been a certain malaise on the Rott for the past couple of months, it certainly isn’t as vibrant as it has been in the past.

    The best part? Imagining Hamilton listening in growing horror, until he realized that the self-styled “Constitutional Scholar” was serious, and then watching him grab the biggest quill in the room, and stabbing King Putt’s eyes out with it before beating him to a bloody mass with a candle stick.

  46. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere August 6, 2011 at 6:02 pm #

    Or we could have a “balanced approach” in which Madison chokes him with the parchment he was taking notes on.

    I had a neighborhood get together this afternoon in the heat of the day. I am positively wilted, and I outlasted everyone there. I was supposed to go out with my sis this evening, but she cancelled, so maybe I will go pass out.

  49. Jay in Ames August 6, 2011 at 9:54 pm #

    I saw the neighborhood from the comfort of my sliding glass door, today. Does that count?

  50. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX August 6, 2011 at 10:06 pm #

    I stayed under the ceiling fan, right next to the A/C vent all day. All of the heat rises to the second story; I hit the landing on the way up to bed, and my lungs seize up….

  51. Dick August 6, 2011 at 10:13 pm #

    Kel and I watched Super 8 (very good flick) and the original Indiana Jones flick.

    That was enough for us.

    Yeah, when I go from the Man-Cave™ in the basement to the 2nd floor bedroom, it’s a 10-15 degree difference. It’s better now that I put a fan at the bottom of the stairs, blowing up.

  54. Dick August 6, 2011 at 10:21 pm #

    I think we only hit 105/106 today. Honestly, kinda lame.

    I got a job to handle first thing in the morning, which should be nice and easy.

    I did a bunch of work in the yard, then whipped it and mowed it, then really cleaned my car (Resolve does a crackerjack job getting Cherry Icee barf stains out of car upholstery, BTW), vacuumed it out, washed it, talked with the neighbor about the jackass down the street who wants to revive the HOA that has been defunct for 11 years (fat chance, asshole) and infuriated a liberal acquaintance of a very old friend of mine on FB. His poon really started to hurt when I started flogging King Putt for his bullshit, especially after the tool told me that Obama has “been the model of restraint”. The litany I smacked him with left him sputtering and he called me a liar. So then I started linking the proof and he got really quiet.

    Even though I didn’t post the numbers I should have today, its been a damn good day.

    I gotsa “Disease”, man…..

    Here’s why heat/humidity makes MG worse. We have fewer muscle receptors for the acetylcholine to go through to make our muscles strong. So many of us use Mestinon to keep what acetylcholine (ACh) we have in the neuromuscular junction longer. Mestinon is a “cholinesterase inhibitor.” It inhibits an enzyme called “Acetyl cholinesterase” or AChE.

    Normally, it’s a perfect checks and balances system in the body. ACh goes in and makes muscles strong and then AChE goes in and “mops up” afterwards so we don’t get too much of a good thing.

    What heat does (cold too to some degree) is to increase that enzyme (AChE), therefore mopping up too much acetylcholine before we have a chance to use it.

    What humidity does is not allow our bodies to sweat. If we can’t sweat, we can’t cool down. If we can’t cool down, more of that enzyme (AChE) gets produced.
