    That Pity Party was downright nauseating! 😂

    • Bunk X says:

      One or two couched their words a bit. Another asked for an example of Charles’ worst post. THAT would be a tough choice. 😀

      Charles doesn’t just post a tweet and move on (to the next dozen dollops of brilliance) he reads ALL responses and responds to some. He doesn’t seem to do that much in the LGF comments – he interacts with none of the echolizards, just dumps his dollops on the kitchen floor and waddles back to @jack..

    Fatass is nothing but a lying, hypocritical grifter. He says whatever he thinks will attract followers and cash. He bet on trashy/broke liberal insanity when Obama became President and hasn’t looked back because he knew he’d be toast.

    • Octopus says:

      He has zero integrity. I knew that back in ‘05, for reasons I’ve discussed before. I wasn’t the least bit surprised by the Night Of Teh Long Knives. His complete 180 in ‘09 on EVERY issue, overnight, was a real eye-opener as to his overall character and mental stability. 😂

      • rightymouse says:

        I remember those days. When I joined, he was top of his game. Then he slowly began to dissolve/change. Was unreal!

        • Octopus says:

          I was there in late-‘01 or early-‘02. Chonky never said much, but he was pulling a lot of pertinent articles from other places, in those golden pre-Twitter times. I didn’t officially join and start commenting until ‘03. It was a blast, at first. Then, I started getting tired of the hive-mind folks who dominated the comments section. Then, I starting poking at them. Hilarity ensued. 😂

          • rightymouse says:

            I remember you fondly as Stinky Inky. 😆 There were a number of ‘conservatives’ that I ended up disliking for various reasons. They are mostly at GCP now.

          • Octopus says:

            I’ve never been there. Maybe I should check it out. 😄

            I believe my first squabble at LGF was after I pointed out a couple of uncool passages in the Old Testament, after an Orthodox person denied there was any such thing in the Good Book. Ooh, was she hot! 😡

            And then there was the whole Terri Schiavo thing. Probably still a sensitive subject, with some folks. Tragic story. 😢

  3. rightymouse says:

    I need to wake up. More java.

  4. rightymouse says:

    Bunk. How in the world did you find ‘Ella Zee”? Too funny! 😆

  5. Octopus says:

    The kid is a handful. I bet he was difficult on the Long March. They had to play Pretend games the whole time. 😄

    My Dad: “Let’s pretend we’re in church, and we have to stay quiet for the next hour or two. Or else we get a spanking.”

    • Bunk X says:

      Some friends had a party and their daughter, although not whiny, was pestering everyone. It was past her bedtime, too, but her parents did nothing, didn’t seem to notice.

      I asked everyone in the room if they’d like to see a magic trick, then I announced that I was going to make little Christina iinvisible. She was excited, and then *poof.* Everyone played along, looking around to find her, and Christina wandered around the living room in complete silence until she started yawning. She magically reappeared just in time to go to bed.

      • Octopus says:

        Great parlor trick! 😂

        I might have to use that someday.

        • Bunk X says:

          Here’s another. We had some friends over and they brought their kids. I already knew a couple of them were trouble, but there was no way to keep an eye on all of them.

          Then I had an idea. I motioned one to come over, told him in private, “Okay, I’m putting you in charge. Let me know if anyone starts causing trouble or is doing something they shouldn’t be. Deal?” Then I quietly did the same with each of the others. It worked perfectly. They were all secret police policing each other.

          I only got one report. Kid told me that one of the adults turned off the cartoons in the living room and was watching a movie. Karl got sent back to the patio.

    I hope they are successful!

  7. Octopus says:

    Find the racist!

    • rightymouse says:

      They’re all liberal racist idiots.

      • Octopus says:

        That “bishop” is a real piece of racist, grifting trash, too. His Twitter feed is a sewer of black-sponsored race-hate.

  8. rightymouse says:

    OMG!!! 😯

      We’re going to Massachusetts next week. Yearly trip to FIL’s grave.

      • Octopus says:

        Try to avoid the Boston traffic, especially anywhere near rush hour. 😱😳

        …but feel free to “accidentally” run over a liberal or two. DEATH THREAT!! 😄

    Why care about the million others involved when you can enjoy the misery of one?

    Funny Twitter exchange:

  18. Octopus says:

    The lyrebird is the most gifted mimic – imagine if you had a crying baby in the house, AND one of these bastards.

  19. Octopus says:

    Stump-Ender retweeted:

    What do these shitheads think a heartbeat is? Unicorn farts? Have you ever seen a heart out of electrical rhythm shocked back to life with a defibrillator? Maybe once or a million times, on TV?

    Having a curly pile of dogshit in your skull instead of a brain is problematic, no? 😄

    Speaking of unfortunate mistakes:

    Ruh-roh! Paulie’s got a pedo problem. Stand by for further updates, as his “I was hacked”-malarkey goes up in flames. 😂😳

    Why are all the worst pervs on the Idiot Left? 😂

  22. rightymouse says:

    Satire? Not this time. Babylon Bee nailed it.

    It’s racist Trumpists fault, so predictable

    Just made sausage rolls and cancelled my subscription to Pornhub.

  29. ISTE says:

    OK a lesson vis a vis malt vinegar.

    It is acidic and has flavour. Regular white vinegar is just acetic acid and water. So, if you use vinegar for anything use the malt version.

    So, you ever been to a really expensive restaurant and ordered fish? I bet it came with a slice or two of lemon.

    Lemon juice is acidic, citric acid in this case.

    Something to note, lemons do NOT grow in England.

    Well now you have the answer. The British sprinkle malt vinegar on their fish and chips because as noted above lemons are not something that was available in England. They are now obviously because of modern ships.

    Anytime anyone thinks British food is odd look at history.

  30. ISTE says:

    Another one.

    English food is boring. It is boiled beef and carrots!

    Americans LOVE pot roast!!!!


    You get the idea?

  31. ISTE says:


    What is American food? Why is it better than English food?

    Can someone tell me what is a traditional American ( USA ) meal?

    • rightymouse says:

      Rib-eye steak.

      • rightymouse says:

        Delmonico roast.

        • rightymouse says:

          Turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy with cranberry sauce.

          • rightymouse says:

            Creamed corn casserole. Green bean casserole.

          • rightymouse says:

            Buffalo burgers.

          • Octopus says:

            American food is friggin’ awesome! That’s because we are a land of immigrants from all over the world, and everyone brought their favorite recipes. We have everything, every style of food preparation, even bugs for you insane hippie eco-hysterics.

            Last night I was in the mood for something simple, easy, and satisfying. I heated up a big can of Bush’s Baked Beans, the Country Style, and had three microwaved cut-up Ballpark Franks (“All Beef”) in there. It was awesome. I’m like a gourmet chef. 😂

          • rightymouse says:

            It’s wonderful to eat what makes you happy! I’m making another batch of Thai cold beef salad today to go with dinner. 🙂

          • Bunk X says:

    • Octopus says:

      Note: A baby, or a dog, could easily tell the difference between a ripe avocado and an overripe, or less-than-ripe one. The “navel” is a very simple, straightforward signal. If it pops off with a very little force, it’s good to go. If it’s already gone, the avocado is mush. Now shut up and go get the salmon filets. We have to talk.

  42. Octopus says:

    Paul really laid it all out there.

    Today is Labor Day. I remember being in labor with my son who will be 27 this week. I was in labor for over 10 hours and refused an epidural. Had to throw out the nurses because they were so annoying, so they sent in a mid-wife until I was ready & then my Doc showed up. Anyway, it was the best day of my life. 🙂

      The COVID Vaccine: A Physician’s Perspective
      [Cat Ass Trophy]
      —Open Blogger

      My name is Dr. CAT, I am a 27 year military veteran of both the Air Force and Army, a board certified emergency physician and employee of a Big Hospital system. I am a graduate of a Big 10 University School of Medicine and completed my residency at a prestigious institution

      I am not anti vaccine. I am anti vaccine mandate, particularly in the case of the novel mRNA vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna. As with all of you, I watched in horror from my position at a big hospital in February 2020 as COVID-19 ravaged Italy. The virus was spreading globally, nothing seemed to stop it, and thousands were dying with no effective treatment to be found. It was truly a nightmare scenario.

      Physicians and scientists were collaborating globally using Facebook and Twitter to speed the spread of new information and ideas around the world within minutes. Major scientific journals expedited the release and publication of COVID related articles and made them free to access. It was amazing. This was going to be a global triumph. But then politics joined the fray. And when politics and science mix, science loses. What the government scientists spoke was the truth, everything else was labelled misinformation and banned.

      For centuries the scientific method invited questions, invited curiosity. Stupid questions and fringe ideas overturned scientific dogma throughout history. It is how we advance science. We question results, question truth, keep experimenting. But when politics and science mix, science loses. Fringe ideas such as a heliocentric solar system get Copernicus and Galileo thrown out of the church. Offering an alternative treatment to COVID, or questioning the effectiveness of masks gets you banned from Facebook and YouTube.

      The family of coronaviruses is fairly common. It along with rhinovirus, adenovirus and enterovirus typically cause symptoms of the common cold. A vaccine which can tackle some or all of these viruses would be a windfall for any pharmaceutical company. Cure for the common cold. But the cure does not exist. Prior to 2020, we have never successfully made a vaccine against the coronavirus. Prior to 2020, we have also never made a vaccine using the mRNA technology. But, within months of isolating SARS COV-2, we not only have a vaccine against a coronavirus, but one using mRNA technology, AND near simultaneous release by several companies globally.

      This should warrant cautious optimism from the medical and scientific community. Yes it works, but is it safe? Is it necessary? By the time of release of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines in late 2020, we were gaining control of the pandemic. We were finding effective treatment strategies, deaths were down. We identified vulnerable populations. The vaccine was promising, but the urgency was waning. It left time for careful consideration. Be scientists. Ask questions. What are the side effects? How long does immunity last? Is it effective against variants? What are the longer term, unseen effects? We don’t know. Let’s find out.

      The majority of COVID-19 deaths are in people over 60 with other significant medical problems. It is reasonable to focus vaccine efforts on this population. There may be some unseen risk to the vaccine, but they stand a significant chance of dying from COVID. The benefit outweighs the risk. That is a decision we make all the time in medicine. The treatment has drawbacks, but the disease is worse. But in the less vulnerable population? Let’s wait a little bit. There are two novel aspects to this vaccine. The mRNA mechanism, and the Coronavirus target. We need careful consideration to find out what the risks of the vaccine really are.

      That did not happen. When politics and science mix, science loses. Hurry up! Vaccinate everyone. We will restrict you until you are vaccinated. No 4th of July if we don’t reach vaccination goals! Hurry up!

      AstraZeneca was the first to be pulled in Europe because of unanticipated blood clotting issues. The Johnson and Johnson adenovirus vector vaccine faced some early questions here at home. Healthy people were getting ill, suffering long term appetite suppression and cardiomyopathy after the vaccine. Wait. Stop. Slow down. Let’s take time to look at this closer before we forge ahead. No. When politics and science mix, science loses. Just shut up and take the jab. You are banned from Facebook for spreading misinformation about your vaccine side effects.

      The vaccine was designed for the original COVID. We are now Delta dominant. Cases are surging. Companies are mandating the vaccine with threat of firing for noncompliance, mandating the vaccine to fly, mandating the vaccine to attend a game. The FDA made a hasty approval of the Pfizer vaccine, and the floodgates have opened. Now, under the thin veneer of FDA approval, more companies, my hospital included, are mandating the vaccine in order to remain employed.

      The hospital’s rationale is that the Delta surge is driven by the unvaccinated. Is this true? The data out of Israel, who is months ahead of our curve with Delta says the opposite. Those who have never had COVID, but did receive the full 2 dose Pfizer regimen are 13 times more likely to get Delta than those with natural immunity, those who contracted the original COVID and recovered. 13 times more likely to contract Delta if you are vaccinated.

      And of those who were vaccinated and contracted Delta, how long was it between vaccination and infection with Delta? Four months. Israelis were vaccinated in Jan/Feb and contracted Delta by June.

      So we have a twice novel vaccine with known immediate side effects, no long term study , and which only seems to be effective against the current variant for 4-6 months. Will “take the jab or be fired” be a recurring threat from Big Hospital going forward? Every 6 months, get your booster or you are fired?

      They reply “But those who are vaccinated and contract Delta don’t get as sick!” Right, but they are still contagious, and now not sick enough to stay home. And if there is a risk of harm from taking a new vaccine, and the only benefit is that I get less sick, that choice should be mine, not forced under threat of unemployment.

      And speaking about long term effects, are we seeing any now? Long term effects are just that. They happen months or years later. This is why a new drug takes years to come to market. The FDA graveyard is littered with medications which made it through the approval process, only to be recalled due to an unforeseen long term consequence. Try to buy Zantac, a once popular OTC antacid, at CVS. It was just recalled because an impurity causes cancer. Didn’t see that coming. Vioxx, thalidomide, fen-phen… oops.

      What are the long term effects of the mRNA vaccine? Who knows. There is early evidence of decreased numbers of an immune cell called CD-8 T cells immediately following vaccination. These cells are part of the early surveillance team which seeks out and destroys cells infected with viruses or are abnormally growing cancerous cells. Dr. Ryan Cole, a pathologist and immunologist in Idaho has noticed an increase in invasive melanomas, endometrial cancer, and cervical dysplasia as well as common viral infections such as molluscum, HPV and HSV. These are typically conditions a healthy immune system with functioning CD-8 cells would knock out before you even knew about it. But in post vaccinated people, these infections and cancer are quickly becoming more common. Suppressed T cells are not there to stop it. This is anecdote, not a published study, but this is the kind of thing that spurs questions in a healthy scientific community. We consider the issue, study it find the data, prove the hypothesis. But in today’s world, Dr. Cole is labelled a kook, ostracized, videos deleted from YouTube for spreading misinformation. Questioning the dogma.

      There is also a study published in the UK which identifies antibody dependent enhancement facilitating infection with Delta. Antibody dependent enhancement is a case where the antibodies the vaccine stimulates you to make actually facilitate the entry of the Delta strain into your cells. Instead of making it less likely you will get sick, it makes you more likely. This may explain the Israeli data. This is actual data, published by the British Infection Association. There are long term consequences out there, we just haven’t taken the time necessary to find them.

      The Big Hospital policy cites acceptance of the vaccine by the American College of Gynecologists and Obstetricians (ACOG). Give the vaccine to pregnant women. Really? Where is the caution here? Most medications, common medications prescribed frequently to pregnant women, reglan, zofran, phenergran, tylenol, carry the warning on the package insert that they are not well studied in pregnancy, and use is cautioned. We use them because there are decades of use that show them to be probably safe, but still counsel patients before prescribing. The vaccine? Just give it! It is safe! Despite the fact that it is not possible to have a cohort of newborns large enough to show detrimental effect. Disgraceful. What possible reason is there for the rush? When politics and science mix, science loses

      It may turn out that the Pfizer vaccine was key in our victory over COVID. This may also be a dark time for science and medicine where we allowed our process to be subverted by politics, and patients lost.

      In medicine we talk about informed decision making. The old, paternalistic, directive medicine is in the past. We involve patients in their care, inform them, allow them to make the decisions, right or wrong. Politics mixed with science, science has lost and we have now returned to the paternalistic directive medicine of “vaccinate or else”.

        The US standard railroad gauge (distance between the rails) is 4 feet, 8.5 inches. That’s an exceedingly odd number.

        Why was that gauge used?
        Well, because that’s the way they built them in England, and English engineers designed the first US railroads.

        Why did the English build them like that?
        Because the first rail lines were built by the same people who built the wagon tramways, and that’s the gauge they used.

        So, why did ‘they’ use that gauge then?
        Because the people who built the tramways used the same jigs and tools that they had used for building wagons, which used that same wheel spacing.

        Why did the wagons have that particular odd wheel spacing?
        Well, if they tried to use any other spacing, the wagon wheels would break more often on some of the old, long distance roads in England . You see, that’s the spacing of the wheel ruts.

        So who built those old rutted roads?
        Imperial Rome built the first long distance roads in Europe (including England ) for their legions. Those roads have been used ever since.

        And what about the ruts in the roads?
        Roman war chariots formed the initial ruts, which everyone else had to match or run the risk of destroying their wagon wheels. Since the chariots were made for Imperial Rome , they were all alike in the matter of wheel spacing. Therefore the United States standard railroad gauge of 4 feet, 8.5 inches is derived from the original specifications for an Imperial Roman war chariot. Bureaucracies live forever.

        So the next time you are handed a specification/procedure/process and wonder ‘What horse’s ass came up with this?’, you may be exactly right. Imperial Roman army chariots were made just wide enough to accommodate the rear ends of two war horses. (Two horses’ asses.)

        Now, the twist to the story:

        When you see a Space Shuttle sitting on its launch pad, there are two big booster rockets attached to the sides of the main fuel tank. These are solid rocket boosters, or SRBs. The SRBs are made by Thiokol at their factory in Utah . The engineers who designed the SRBs would have preferred to make them a bit fatter, but the SRBs had to be shipped by train from the factory to the launch site. The railroad line from the factory happens to run through a tunnel in the mountains, and the SRBs had to fit through that tunnel. The tunnel is slightly wider than the railroad track, and the railroad track, as you now know, is about as wide as two horses’ behinds.

        So, a major Space Shuttle design feature, of what is arguably the world’s most advanced transportation system, was determined over two thousand years ago by the width of a horse’s ass. And you thought being a horse’s ass wasn’t important? Ancient horse’s asses control almost everything……
