abusing the posting privileges again

I've had a singularly craptastic day so instead of railing about the insanity of the universe I'm going to think about how much I love Gambit.  Even if Remy is a gigantic douche. 

Pic below the cut due to size.  Sadly not due to NSFWness.

When HuffPo Wants To Surrender In The Limbaugh Wars, How WIll Some On Our Side React?

Just askin'.

President Obama and the Democrats should wave the white flag in their strawman war on Rush Limbaugh. The Media Research Center delivered the grim casualty figures for the Democrats. Since January, the top talk show gabber's ratings have soared off the charts. Radio affiliates that carry Limbaugh's syndicated show call the ratings boost he's gotten from the Democrat's orchestrated attack on him a "dramatic surge." This writer predicted as much when President Obama cracked to Congressional Republicans in late January that they should knock off listening to Limbaugh if they expected to get anything done in Congress and with his administration.

Good morning everyone!

So since things have been a wee bit tense about these parts lately, I thought I would share something that fills me with joy and glee. Yes, it's SFW.

Meet my new crush Lauren.  Seriously.  Seriously no words for how utterly adorable she is.  There's clappyhands people.  I am not made of stone.  And before anyone asks, yes, the boots do play a part in the size of the crush.

Pet Monkey+Giant Fake Genitals+Neighborhood Dispute=Teh Awesome!

This is epic win to 11!

This is a classic story of neighbors having a falling out, an arrest and an illegal pet macaque.

It all started about a year ago when the Vaccaros moved to Upper Magic Circle Drive, next door to Carey and Angie Chase and their pet monkey.

They got along at first, but the couples clashed over a minor business dealing and the relationship cooled.

But instead of benign neglect, there was some tit-for-tat, including the placement of a three-foot-tall phallus on the Chases’ deck.

“It was the blow-up penis that threw me over the edge,” Vaccaro said.

Vaccaro said he and his wife didn’t want to escalate the drama, but they’d seen Angie scuffed up with claw marks and the macaque once went after their dog. They worried for the safety of their three-year-old son.

The war of words turned ugly, so the Vaccaros called the cops.

Goshen police and Department of Environmental Conservation officials visited the Chase house, but were not allowed inside. Goshen town Sgt. Allen Faust said they can’t get a search warrant because Vaccaro hasn’t seen the macaque recently. But Carey Chase was charged this week on a harassment violation for allegedly making threats against the Vaccaros.

Vaccaro snapped photos of the monkey while it frolicked on the jungle gym in his back yard, but the Chases deny they have a macaque.

“What monkey?” Angie Chase said. “We don’t have a monkey. Please don’t call here again.”

Meanwhile, Someone In Europe Still Has Some Balls

Namely, Daniel Hannan.

The internet has changed politics - changed it utterly and forever. Twenty-four hours ago, I made a three-minute speech in the European Parliament, aimed at Gordon Brown. I tipped off the BBC and some of the newspaper correspondents but, unsurprisingly, they ignored me: I am, after all, simply a backbench MEP.

When I woke up this morning, my phone was clogged with texts, my email inbox with messages. Overnight, the YouTube clip of my remarks had attracted over 36,000 hits. By today, it was the most watched video in Britain.

 ...

How did it happen, in the absence of any media coverage? The answer is that political reporters no longer get to decide what's news. The days when a minister gave briefings to a dozen lobby correspondents, and thereby dictated the next day's headlines, are over. Now, a thousand bloggers decide for themselves what is interesting. If enough of them are tickled then, bingo, you're news... And jumbo thanks to all the American bloggers: you chaps are way ahead of us in this regard.

Yet Another Reason To Treat The Elderly With Respect

Cane-fu!

"You don't have to be powerful, you don't have to be fast," said Gary Hernandez, who runs the dojo here northeast of Tampa where the session was held and where he teaches cane fighting classes himself. "It's a piece of hard wood. It hurts."

The session starts simply enough, with seniors gathered on the red and black mat twisting this way and that, stretching with their simple wooden canes over their heads and behind their backs. They combine long rubber tension bands with their canes to do bicep curls, leg presses and chest rows - exercises aimed at keeping the seniors fit.

Fitness alone won't ward off those who might hurt them, though, and Shuey talks briefly of recent attacks on elders. His hazel eyes look severe as he points to the cane and delivers his message.

"When you put this little crook around someone's neck, their whole attitude changes real fast," he said.

And in a moment, Shuey shows it. With another instructor, Merle McAlpin, playing the bad guy, Shuey hooks the cane around his neck and thrusts it. The result is a guttural groan of pain from McAlpin.

When it's time for the students to try a bit later, Shuey shouts: "Be gentle!"

In the two-hour session, participants are taught a sampling of moves to use in different situations. The cane can simply be swung in circles, used to grab a foot or neck, and fashioned into a bat or poker. Advanced techniques even show a senior how to use a cane to ward off someone with a gun or knife.

It takes years to master cane fighting like Hernandez or Shuey, but they say they can teach a senior several crucial moves in an hour. Perhaps more importantly, though, it gives them confidence that can help them escape a dangerous situation.

"You don't think about carrying it other than for somebody who needs help," said 63-year-old Joan Kirkman, a nurse from Zephyrhills. "But after taking this class, you realize you could do so much more with it."

Thank you Vermont!

If gay marriage is to endorsed by the state, do it like Vermont is doing, through the legislature.  No bullshit games with the judiciary, either through the legislature or referendum, s'all I'm asking.  I still think we're better off just having all civil unions, and leave marriage to the private sector, but I'm fine with this too.

In any case, looks like the Governor might veto it, but if the Senate vote is any indicator, it'd probably be overridden if he did, so I wonder if he'll let it ride?

Thank Gaia For Science!

I mean, now I have an excuse to keep drinking.

The effect of alcohol on bone mineral density (BMD) was "larger than what we see for any single nutrient, even for calcium. It's not ambiguous. It's very clear," according to Dr. Katherine Tucker of Tufts University in Boston.

Men who had a glass or two of wine or beer daily had denser bones than non-drinkers, but those who downed two or more servings of hard liquor a day had significantly lower BMD than the men who drank up to two glasses of liquor daily.

The women who drank more than two glasses a day of alcohol or wine had greater BMD than the women who drank less.

Suck it, Hugo!

Korea beat Venezuela like a red-headed stepchild in tonight's World Baseball Classic semifinal game at Dodger Stadium.  I can't wait for Chavez to make a rambling speech calling the Korean team and the umpires "capitalist lackeys" or some such thing.

Since I keep thinking it's Friday

I'm taking a mini vacation this week (ie sitting on my couch watching basketball for four days straight), so this was my Friday.  Which is v v confusing.  Anyway, since I think it's Friday, I thought I'd post some Friday Night Pr0n. 



You know what?  I don't care how good or bad it is, Wolverine is just going to be pure and utter snickety snickety pretty boy porn.  I'm spectacularly fine with that.

Intent

Goldstein expounds delightfully on the nature of language and intent.*

* - I bring this up in the interest of engaging the debate about receivers of information being able to twist that information in ways the speaker did not intend and, do not intend**,  to imply any opinion or reference to the now infamous four fucking words of doom. 

As it applies to that, I will just say that there is a difference between linguistically, morally and politically good/bad/right/wrong and I think the event falls into different categories depending on which angle you're using.  It was almost certainly impolitic but definitely morally defensible and clearly linguistically acceptible. 

What's the term for that?  Inartful?  Maybe that.

** - Please ignore the fact that I've discussed this.  I just think it is important that J.G.'s battle against victim interpretation be successful.  If it is not, it won't matter what Rush said because we'll all be incapable of speaking our minds.  Hell, we already are to a large extent.
