Piss Poor Performance......

I own my own manufacturing business. Everyday my customers rely on me to
deliver quality parts on time. My employees rely on me to maintain their jobs
and pay them for their services. The government expects me to withhold taxes
and once a week make an electronic deposit. The family relies on me. My friends
rely on me. The people that drive next to me on the highway rely on me to be alert.
My landlord relies on me to pay my rent. Many people rely on me.

I wonder what would happen if all the people and businesses I deal with
only gave me an approval of 18% ?

"I don't think I would be in business anymore"

Vodka on the Rocks.... kinda

After mixing Vodka, drunk friends, and then a dare......

what do you do?

"Call the Coast Guard"

I won't even go there with the ethnicity jokes.

In an Instant.... can all be swept away.

The earthquake and tsunami news that I woke to this morning just reaffirms

how quickly so much can be taken away. Over the coming days there will be

some very sad reports of the devastation. I am sure the Japanese will rise

above this with honor and dignity. My thoughts are with them.

It can happen anywhere any time.

When Love Fades............

Last night I was sitting on the sofa watching TV when I heard my wife's
lovely voice from the kitchen.

"What would you like for dinner my Love. . . Chicken, beef or lamb?"

I said, "Thank you, I'll have chicken."

She replied "You're having soup, asshole. I was talking to the dog."

EMP an illustrated guide...

Over at the Doug Ross Journal, they do a good job of
putting an EMP attack into perspective.

From the site:

On July 9, 1962, a high-altitude nuclear test named Starfish Prime was conducted by the United States military above Johnston Island in the Pacific Ocean. Its unexpected electromagnetic pulse (EMP) effects caused disruptions in electrical systems and equipment in Honolulu 700 miles away.


A good read about what could happen is the book "One Second After"
by Bill Forstchen. I posted about a movie coming out that is in the same
genre of story line "here".

This is some scary stuff and is IMHO quit possible.

What a "Mug"- shot , WTF?

CONNECTICUT (FOX 25 / - A 20-year-old Connecticut man is under arrest after slashing another man with a pair of scissors.

Police say David Davis was about half way through getting his hair cut in a Connecticut apartment when he felt threatened by another man after an argument.

According to police, when the man approached Davis, Davis responded by grabbing a pair of scissors and slashing the man across the face. The victim also sustained a cut to the right side of his upper back.

Police were called to the apartment where Davis was arrested and charged with first-degree assault.

The victim was taken to a local hospital where he received treatment for the non-life threatening injuries.



How not to pull a truck out of the ice............

UPDATE: I did a little research and came up with more video goodness

there are 10  parts to the video, it appears this is the original story here:

click to watch it on Youtube.. then you can get parts 2 thru 10.

Original Post below appears to be from a different angle:

Here "Hold my beer watch this!"

Language warning on the vid :

This is an Ice fishing trip in NH gone wrong. Sorry about the language. I was not there when this happened but as a ford fan I had to put this up.

Self Defense North of the Border.........

From "An NC gun blog"

This is what the anti-gunners want. They would rather you get burned to death inside your house than dare to defend yourself.

This is a good read and contains video of the attack.

From the YHGTBS me files.....

FALL RIVER, Mass. -- Chronically tardy and absent students at one Massachusetts school are about to get early morning wakeup calls.

sooo... now its the SCHOOL'S responsibilty NOT the parents?

What happens when these kids are in the real world? I'm sure their bosses or

fellow criminals will be calling to gently wake them so they can get to work.

Maybe they can have unicorns gently nuzzle them awake and awash them in rainbow light, then fly them to school so that they are on time...

I stand with the Father...

1975... a 16 year old kidnaps a 5 years old, kills him and eats him.

Now he gets parole?? are you fucking serious??



I stand with the father...(knowing full well the criminal will have more rights than the victims family)

"I do intend, if this man is released anywhere in my vicinity, or if I can find him after the fact, I do intend to kill this man."

Remnants ... a new movie in production

A rare astronomical event causes a permanent worldwide black out, forcing residents of a middle-class suburb to get by with no modern conveniences.

The community pulls together and adapts to a simpler way of life, but their success draws the attention of the less resourceful residents in the area and soon results in a war between subdivisions.

This is their story.


You can find a couple trailers, links to the Facebook page and a story synopsis.

It looks like its along the lines of the book "ONE SECOND AFTER"

I hope they do a good job with this one.

Touch Table... WOW

Take a look at this short video from PBS. This is program about a touch-table. (It's Google-Earth on steroids!!!!) About half way in the video it shows Iran 's nuclear facility and does an interesting thing. It moves the satellite pictures as a function of time in years and lets you see what has really has been happening there!
And what they "hid" or thought they "hid" underground!
