If you have not seen the sheer awesomeness of the Nic Cage version of The Wicker Man, this really tells you everything you need to know.

It is nearly as awesome as this.

Via the Firearm Blog, funnily enough.

I suppose the question is, is Scotty Lago sporting a half pipe or a full pipe down there?
yes, Shady URL.
Don't just shoren your URL, make it suspicious and frightenin(sic).
It's not perfect, but it gets the essence.
DPUD's "shady url" is
Surprising me, I would have expected a few "fucks".
Ace's is spot on
Heh.Cuz he gets that sweet, sweet blog money for "accidentally" linking lezbo porn.

So anyway, they tried a stripper-mobile in Vegas but were told to stop it.
No, not a bunch of strippers suspended from threads above your bed, but a glass-sided truck with strippers cruising the Strip. (heh, I just got the joke).
So you have a good idea but Sin City threw you out. Atlantic City pols want too much in bribes. What to do, what to do?
So it's cruising Tampa hotspots like Ybor City.
Edited for spelling and to make sense.

Why do you hate the troops so much, Ms. Cheney?!

He drove to the building after seeing plane and smoke from the crash, put his ladders up to the building -- and when he saw that the people at the window were 'panicked' -- climbed into the building, and helped get five people out.

In an experiment that could reshape American secondary education, high schools in eight states will introduce new courses next year, along with a battery of tests for sophomores, that will allow students who pass to get a diploma two years early and immediately enroll in community college.I think it would be even better if there was a vo-tech / apprenticeship aspect also, but I will take gains where I can get them.
The new system of high school coursework with the accompanying board examinations is modeled largely on systems in high-performing nations including Denmark, Finland, England, France and Singapore.
“That’s a central problem we’re trying to address, the enormous failure rate of these kids when they go to the open admission colleges,” said Marc S. Tucker, president of the National Center on Education and the Economy, a Washington-based nonprofit that is organizing the board exam effort. “We’ve looked at schools all over the world, and if you walk into a high school in the countries that use these board exams, you’ll see kids working hard, whether they want to be a carpenter or a brain surgeon.”
I am afraid I cannot be of much help with your problem, principally because I cannot imagine that such a question could ever reach the Supreme Court. To begin with, the answer is clear. If there was any constitutional issue resolved by the Civil War, it is that there is no right to secede. (Hence, in the Pledge of Allegiance, "one Nation, indivisible.") Secondly, I find it difficult to envision who the parties to this lawsuit might be. Is the State suing the United States for a declaratory judgment? But the United States cannot be sued without its consent, and it has not consented to this sort of suit.

You can buy take-out for soldiers on the front lines in Israel.
So now Rusty has an idea.
Whoever killed the Hamas terrorist in Dubai (naturally they're claiming it was the Joooooooos)
That the Mossad used his real passport information to enter Dubai where they killed a known terrorist.
Personally I'd be tickled pink if the Mossad killed a Hamas leader in my name.
Note to Mossad: leave "Rusty Shackleford was here" notes on the next guy you ice.
Rusty thinks we should have Passports for the Mossad.
I'm all over that.
How would you start something like that? Maybe a Facebook page?
That my friends is a Remington 870 modified to fit that M-4.
Possibly, maybe (if we all pray real hard), they'll be available to civilians.
Not the M-4, the shotgun. But only in places where short barreled shotguns are legal. Like oh, say..... Virginia.
It has 3 configurations
But really, who cares? The pistol is pretty darn cool but....
My .50 Beowulf will have an underslung 12 gauge.
For the zombie-elephant apocalypse.
Should I h/t the Firearm Blog considering the link goes there (and the huge URL in the pic) and I'm the one who saw it there?

The epic nerd in me is so very, very sad that I spent Valentine's Day (a) not in a Star Trek costume and (b) not at the Guinnes Record-setting most-Trekkies-in-costume-EVAH event in London.
Seriously, folks, waste of a perfectly good fake holiday. Don't believe me? Take a look below the fold.more...

1. If it's so cold that your tauntaun wants to stay in, reconsider going out.
2. Also, geeks: When the Super-Winter comes, and everyone else is burning books to stay warm? All that gloating you did about how awesome your Kindle is will finally come back to haunt you
(I'm presuming I don't have to tell anyone reading this crapblog what movie either piece of advice is from)
[also don't even start with the but Scalzi's a liiiiiiiiib crap. He taped bacon to his cat. He's Good People. Also I may possibly love Jane Sagan like burning]
