Bomb strikes Iraq wedding party

BBC NEWS | Middle East | Bomb strikes Iraq wedding party <----(click link for story)

I'm not politically charged but are these Iraqians stupid? Do they not realize they are just killing themselves? It's like genocide, freaking morons.

I'm telling you, if I was President, I would let these people kill each other off until there aren't many left wanting to fight and then you could jump in and "encourage" a democratic government to be set up.

At least we (Americans) wouldn't have lost 100 soldiers in the month of October!

Think about that!

USC's loss to OSU Beavers potential headlines

Again, I am not a football fan and especially NOT a college footbal fan but this was an email sent from a coworker who thought this was funny.  Laugh it up whether you are a college ball fanatic (as she is) or not.  Even I understand simple-minded humor.
Sample headlines post-USC’s loss
courtesy of www.everydayshouldbesaturday.com
For reference (if you didn’t already know), the two teams that played were the USC Trojans and the OSU Beavers.

“Trojans Busted, Beavers Responsible”
“Beavers Turn Back Trojans In The End”
“Trojans Denied By Beavers”
“Beavers Defense Too Tight For Trojans”
”Impotent Trojans Can’t Penetrate Beavers”

I guess even Scrabble is a competitive game

Add some headbutts or groin punches and it could make it on an ESPN national broadcast. Someone sets a record and they blame it on his and his opponents' "lack of experience."

Come on, give credit where credit is due. Although I do think they did a good job in saying, "Michael Cresta holds the record for club play, while Mr. 770 keeps his tournament mark."

I'm impressed with Mr. Cresta's humility as well when he says, "It's really not that big of a deal because I'm really not that great of a player. If you get two experts together, that game's not going to happen."

Long live Scrabble!

NFL, NBA, NHL, Tennis or whatever

I think that the league officials for any sport need to lighten up!

I am not a football fanatic. I like to watch good games...games with exciting catches and runs on the offense or awesome blocks or interceptions on the defense, just good plays all around.

I was flicking channels on football Sunday this past Sunday and I watched a few games. I can't remember which one it was but a running back had a damn good run and after he got tackled (out of bounds I might add) he placed the ball with an upward palm under the chin strap of the defender that tackled him. He got called for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Personally, I think that these guys put their bodies through serious impacts and risk of injury they deserve to be a braggert now and then. More examples are like back when they were show boating in the end zones after touchdowns or even when Terrell Owens did it on the Dallas Cowboys star at center field in Texas Stadium, I think they should be able to do that too!

I don't have a lot of examples for basketball but I think if you can break the backboard, you should be able to. The NBA makes plenty of money to replace a backboard now and again.

Although they consider tennis a gentleman's game, I think there should be allowed a little more gloating. I think tennis players don't gloat, not because of some rule, but it's just the way it's always been. I think times need to change. If you can kick the shit out of someone in a tennis match after you were an arrogant ass, I think you should do it. BUT, if you get your ass kicked, you will look more like a fool than an ass. Would this not make tennis more interesting to watch?

I could go on and on as usual but I'm about to watch Heroes. So, I'll shut my trap...for now.

One Tree Hill is slowly going downhill

I just finished watching my recording of One Tree Hill and I think it’s getting a little to General Hospital-ish and too much Melrose Place-ish.

Of course, I guess it’s a little queer-ish for a thirty-plus year old man to be watching it in the first place, huh? If I had anything better to do like if there were more Stars’ games or tennis tournaments on television, maybe I’d have something better to watch.

So, back to the show critique.

I wish I could fall out a second story window onto my back. Not only did I fall out the window, I fucking flew like thirty feet out and thirty feet down. Amazing, I would be, huh?

Everyone is sleeping with everyone else. I mean why the hell would Brooke have a one-night stand so quickly after “breaking up” with Lucas? Also, how did Brooke and Rachel get into a bar when they are high school seniors?

Where did Rachel get her tits at such a young age?

Were YOU ever able to get into a high school classroom at 10 p.m. or so at night to have random, one-night-stand sex? I could but usually not without setting off a few alarms!

Why did they pick Lucas to be the Jake of Melrose Place? You remember Jake, right? He was the good guy that everyone loved to love and wanted to have as a friend. Only problem is, Lucas is a wussy mo-fo! I mean he’s like 130 lbs of skin and bone. They could have saved that title for Nathan.

Speaking of Nathan…and Haley. They are like Michael and Jane or Brandon and Kelly. They were the couples that you thought would survive all the lustfulness, deceitfulness and partner swapping that everyone else around them was participating in. You mark my words, their relationship will deteriorate. That’s the way all night soap operas go — two opposites come together unexpectedly; go through trials and tribulations in their relationship; expected to go the distance; writers decide to throw some spice into the show and BAM! The everlasting, ever strong couple is dissolved.

Okay, I’ll stop showing my gayness and go back to watching the Stars game.

More illegal immigration agitation

Click on the quote for the entire article...
US President George W Bush has signed into law a plan for 700 miles (1,125km) of new fencing along the US-Mexico border, to curb illegal immigration.

Mr Bush said the US had not been in control of the border for decades.

Illegal immigration is expected to be a major question in next month's US mid-term elections.

Mexican officials have opposed the fence, with outgoing President Vicente Fox calling it "shameful" and likening it to the Berlin Wall.

About 10 million Mexicans are thought to live in the US, some four million of them illegally.

An estimated 1.2 million illegal immigrants were arrested last year trying to cross into the US via the border states of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California.
I think President Vicente Fox is a moron..."likening it to the Berlin Wall." He's obviously the type of Mexican the US is trying to keep out of the country - stupid, ignorant and uneducated. The Berlin Wall separated the same country. It was used to protect Nazi Germany. It's easier to protect a smaller part of a country than the ENTIRE country. It was a strategic move to maintain security and control albeit a little extreme, it worked!

The Border Wall is a separator for two DIFFERENT countries. It should also be used to protect, to maintain some form of security and to control some of the illegal activity for the states bordering Mexico. I could go on and on.

I think we should actually have a charged (electrified) fence along the border. I think a few Mexican relatives get barbecued and they may think twice about crossing into the US illegally. Those that make it without getting jolted should be applauded but we will send you back and you can try again...and again...if you continue to succeed. It's just like within our country. We are too lenient on murderers, rapists and thieves. If we cut a few arms or sexual organs off, I think we could drastically cut down on these forms of crimes.

Anyway, will the fence be completely effective? NO! Like someone said in the article, it could be traversed and when there is no waiting border patrol on the other side then the effectiveness wains. Hence, the need for the electrified fence.

I believe something needs to be done and not just because they are Mexicans. I think it's an open border for a new breed of terrorists to cross. The border patrol is not as crafty as shown in "Born in East L.A."

Oh yeah, and why the hell isn't Vincente Fox doing something on his side of the fence to keep his people from becoming criminals by illegally crossing the border? I don't hear about him trying to talk to his fellow country-people to stay in Mexico to help make it become a better thriving country. Hmmmmmmm!?

People can always point fingers except for when it's pointed at themselves.

Stick a fork in me...I'm done.

...for now

More stuff on illegal immigration in Farmers Branch, Texas

If I lived in his town, I would support this city council member 100%. It's time to walk the walk instead of talk the talk! People that disagree need to realize one thing - he's targeting ILLEGAL immigrants. Not your up-to-date green card or visa holders. And those businesses that are complaining...I guess we could liken it to aiding and abetting a criminal. Not much of a difference except probably the severity of the crimes.

An excerpt from the article: click on quote to go to the article on DallasNews.com
Mr. O'Hare has suggested that the council consider ordinances that not only penalize landlords and businesses for dealings with illegal immigrants, but also make English the city's official language and curtail spending for illegal immigrant children to participate in some youth programs.

Council member Ben Robinson suggested the city also consider prohibiting the assembly of day laborers, and authorizing police who question the validity of residency papers of immigrants encountered during traffic stops or accidents to make and submit copies of the papers and submit them to immigration officials.

The council also will discuss the federal 287(g) immigration enforcement program, which gives police departments access to databases to determine a person's identity and immigration status, and decide whether illegal immigrants who have committed crimes are eligible for deportation proceedings.

Testing blogging from Performancing in Firefox 2.0

I just downloaded and begin playing around with FireFox 2.0 for the first time.  I am a creature of habit and I hate to learn new things that is why I have always used IE but I read that this is a really cool browser.  Of course, I heard that IE7 is a very cool browser as well.  I will download later once my work lets me know that they will/can support it in case I need assistance with anything.

So far, the FF2 seems pretty interesting.  I have to get used to the tab browsing but I think I actually like it versus having multiple browser windows open separately.  I've downloaded some interesting add-ons/plug-ins like the AccuWeather, Performancing, FoxyTunes and a couple of others.  There are more I'd like to check out but it seems they haven't been updated to work with the new 2.0 version.

Right now I am testing posting a blog entry from the Performancing add-on.  It's got some built-in metrics for blogs so that will be cool to see how it works.  I already use a free stats place but if I can get it all in one place, that would be very beneficial like less usernames and passwords to remember.

So, I'll finish this test entry and will continue later if all works well.

Update: Well, I ran into my first problem.  I hit the "publish" button and it got some error stating it couldn't connect to the AtomServer.  I clicked to view blog and it got a bad request error page.  After that, the browser locked up.  I guess that's one problem with tabbed browsing and this seems like it will affect IE7 as well.  I had to Ctrl-Alt-Del and cancel the unresponsive program which in turn closes all tabbed sessions.  Sometimes in IE6, if I have more than one browser window open and one locks, I can Ctrl-Alt-Del and it will only close that particular browser window, not all of them.  Oh well, back to seeing if I can get it to work after restarting FF2.

Update 2: Well, hot damn! It worked.

Why does it always happen to the innocent, little ones

Again, I ask how some can have unwavering belief there is a God, a loving God. How loving is it for a 3-yr-old to get the living shit kicked out of him, have to suffer through his injuries and finally put out of his misery when his body just couldn't maintain functioning with his injuries.

We waste money on jailing these people. We waste money on trying these people. We waste money on putting them in prison to serve their terms.

For people like this, I would enjoy being judge, jury, executioner. And all I would waste is my own energy and maybe a bullet after I gave them what they gave their victims.

Sounds harsh, I know but if we as a society were not such pussies on such heinous crimes, I think there would be less of them. Jail is not punishment nor is it rehabilitating. It's like a bad, bad Griswald vacation!

As a parent, it infuriates and saddens me to see this happen to innocent children. Read the story and get pissed off with me.
Mom charged with not halting child's beating

05:11 AM CDT on Friday, October 20, 2006

By JASON TRAHAN / The Dallas Morning News

The mother of a 3-year-old boy who police say was beaten and kicked to death by the woman's teenage boyfriend has been arrested and accused of leaving her son with the man after she witnessed most of the violence.

Arrest warrant affidavits say Arlena Lindley, 21, of Dallas was in the apartment when her son, Titches Lindley, was choked, stomped and tossed against a wall by her boyfriend. Then Ms. Lindley went shopping.

Ms. Lindley was booked into the Lew Sterrett Justice Center on Wednesday afternoon on a charge of injury to a child with the intent of serious bodily injury by omission, a first-degree felony punishable by up to life in prison. Her bail is set at $100,000.

Ms. Lindley's boyfriend, Alonzo Turner, 19, was being held without bail on charges of capital murder in connection with the Oct. 13 death of Titches.

He also is charged with family violence assault because he's accused of injuring Ms. Lindley.

Ms. Lindley and Mr. Turner have declined interview requests.

Police said that about 10 a.m. Oct. 13, Ms. Lindley was at the apartment in the 4800 block of Sunnyvale Street in east Oak Cliff when Mr. Turner flew into a tirade because Titches wouldn't eat his oatmeal and had soiled his pants.

According to the affidavits, Mr. Turner ordered the boy into the bedroom, told him to bend over and beat him with a belt. He threw the boy against the wall.

Titches then spit oatmeal on the floor, and after he refused to lick it up, police said, Mr. Turner forced the boy's face into the mess. He then grabbed the boy's throat and stepped on his chest, then forced the boy's head into the toilet, police said.

"She didn't step in to protect the child," said Lt. Ches Williams, head of the crimes against children unit. "She was there enough of the time to realize that the child was being hurt."

Instead, the affidavits said, the boy's mother left with a friend to go to the store. Mr. Turner would not let them take Titches along, police said.

When her friend asked Ms. Lindley if they should call anyone, she reportedly said no, one affidavit said.

Soon after, an apartment manager walking by heard Mr. Turner yelling, "Get up! Get up!" at the boy. Through the window, she could see the man kicking the boy. She knocked on the door and confronted him. "I had to whoop him for pooping in his pants," Mr. Turner told her, according to police.

She went back to the office, and 911 was called. An officer arrived but found the apartment abandoned.

Police later learned Mr. Turner had taken Titches "to the store to get Pepto-Bismol because [Titches] was complaining of a sore stomach," according to one affidavit.

Meanwhile, after doing some shopping, Ms. Lindley accompanied her friend to her apartment, where they discussed Mr. Turner's behavior. Ms. Lindley, according to the friend, "was smiling when she told about the ... beating," an affidavit states.

At 1:40 p.m., the women returned to the apartment and found Titches, who was having "a hard time standing up and was tired." Mr. Turner told the boy, "Don't you fall down!" and laughed. The boy went to rest in the bedroom.

Ms. Lindley checked on her son and found his breathing labored but did nothing, police said. Minutes later, she found him not breathing, police said.

Mr. Turner dialed 911. Titches died at Children's Medical Center Dallas. Police said Titches had broken ribs, extensive internal bleeding and head trauma. The Dallas County medical examiner's office ruled he had died from multiple blunt force injuries.

When investigators asked Ms. Lindley why she didn't take her son away from Mr. Turner, she answered, "I don't know."

One of the biggest hoaxes of our time - the automatic dishwasher

I don't know who invented it but they are making a butt load of money off of rich, dumb ass people!

My wife is one of the dumb asses that believes int he product but we didn't have to buy the appliance as I am a renter and it came with the house.

I don't understand why people think that it does what it touts. It doesn't clean ANY and ALL dishes ALL the time. No matter what anyone says, you still have to pre-clean some dishes like that baked-on-caked-on lasagna or casserole that grandma made. For that dish, there WILL be scrubbing and cleaning with a lot of elbow grease before you even put that shit in the dishwasher! Trust me! Anyone that tells you different and you believe them probably sold you some ocean front property in Arizona!

My wife says she'll do the dishes. Her "doing" is putting the dishes into the dishwasher. Of course, the dishes don't get washed until the dishwasher is started. Which the dishwasher doesn't get started until the dishwasher is full or damn near full. So, sometimes a day or so could go by before the dishes are washed by the dishwasher.

Which in turn leads to the occasional argument because I get frustrated and pissed off when I am looking for a spoon to eat my bowl of cereal that is getting soggy because I can't finding a fucking CLEAN spoon. So, I have to open the dishwasher, take out a dirty spoon that really could have easily been wiped clean with a soapy sponge and warm water but instead I have to dig it out of its storage container in the dishwasher and clean it so I can eat my now syrupy cereal. Once I am done eating drinking my cereal, I wash my bowl AND spoon under the faucet with a soapy sponge. Easy as pie. End of story.

The problem is my wife likes to let shit lie around for hours or days. When I cook dinner for the family, I clean up my mess afterwards and even wash the dishes I used so they don't get dried-on-baked-on-caked-on or take up the small kitchen counter area because that's just the kind of guy I am!

See me do it! Learn from doing it! YOU Do it! That's what I try to instill in my wife but I just am not getting through to her. She's got a PhD but she can't get IT!

Oh well, I just had to type about it because that's what I just got done doing. Washing the dishes and then finding there is a shit load of them in the dishwasher waiting for who the hell knows how long to be washed. So, I just turned the damn dishwasher on and had to come release some frustration.

I don't think it worked!

Clay Aiken

I'm home with both children sick. I didn't HAVE to take off from work but it seemed like a good day and a good excuse.

Anyway, I can't believe I'm about to post something on Clay Aiken. I think I'm getting my children's sickness!

I was checking my home email. I'm on this listserv for Wal-Mart.com. The sent something about 97-cent titles. I was thinking it was DVD titles but I was wrong. They were advertising/promoting Clay Aiken's new CD in Wal-Mart stores now!

Check out this link and be disturbed with me. Clay looks a lot different than his American Idol days but the destruction he has done to songs that should NEVER be remade by someone at such a low, low caliber is inexcusable. The worst is "Everything I Do (I Do It For You)" sung by Bryan Adams and now junked by Clay Aiken. No one, I mean, NO ONE can do this song after Bryan Adams. It's like sacrilegious. He also ruins Elton John's "Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word" and Dolly Parton's "Here You Come Again."

I can't believe someone signed off on allowing him to butcher these songs.

Dallas Stars versus Los Angeles Kings

What the hell is wrong with the Dallas Stars organization? They haven’t played since Saturday and the first game since is at freaking 9:30 p.m. CST!

I mean I know these late games are going to happen but to keep us waiting for a Stars game for five days and then make it a late, LATE one is somewhat ridiculous for the home fans!

Oh well, back to watching the Stars at the Los Angeles Kings—which the Stars are currently winning 1-0 with 13 minutes left in the first period.

I’m gone!

Tired and busy

I've been tired and busy the past few days...weeks...to type anything really meaningful other than the occasional forwarding of the humorous email. I'm going to try to do better but don't get too excited.

I'm about halfway through a new semester of school and I'm doing pretty good in accounting. I ended up dropping my philosophy class today. About two and a half weeks in, I couldn't stomach the boring ass professor. It's his first semester to teach here and it shows. The entire class hated this guy. He sucked balls, trust me! Difference between me and the other, younger students is that I pay for the class (well, sort of) and not mommy and daddy. So, dropping the class is an option for me although it sets my degree completion back three hours, three hours there. I gave it a try and today I made the final decision to just drop the fucking class besides the fact that I missed the mid-term because I have been planning to drop the class for at least two weeks. Anyway, done deal!

I didn't drop the class entirely because the professor sucked, although it was a BIG factor! I had some family issues (you know the shit-hole brothers and sisters) pop up that required my time and the only time I had available was during work which also includes my occasional hour and a half class. I had to run to talk to lawyers, visit downtown Fort Worth county offices and all kinds of shit.

Something had to give and because I lack focus and discipline the shitty philosophy class had to be dropped! The only thing that I regret is that I won't be in the class at the end of the semester to fill out the teacher evaluation form. I would have ripped him and I hope the younglings do! I did add his name to ratemyprofessor.com and gave my honest, NEGATIVE review. I'm hoping others that were in his class will follow my lead.

Well, I'm getting kind of tired so I think I quit for now. Maybe I'll have something a little more interesting later tomorrow or the next day...or the next.

One for the women...
(I didn't create these. I don't believe them. They definitely aren't true. That's what makes them so humorous!)


She's sitting at the table with her gourmet coffee.
Her son is on the cover of the Wheaties box.
Her daughter is on the cover of Business Week.
Her boyfriend is on the cover of Playgirl.
And her husband is on the back of the milk carton.


"Cash, check or charge?" I asked, after folding items the woman wished to purchase.

As she fumbled for her wallet , I noticed a remote control for a television set in her purse.

"So, do you always carry your TV remote?" I asked.

"No," she replied, "but my husband refused to come shopping with me,
and I figured this was the most evil thing I could do to him legally."


I know I'm not going to understand women.
I'll never understand how you can take boiling hot wax, pour it onto your upper thigh, rip the hair out by the root, and still be afraid of a spider.


While attending a Marriage Seminar dealing with communication,

Tom and his wife Grace listened to the instructor..."It is essential that husbands and wives know each other's likes and dislikes."

He addressed the man,"Can you name your wife's favorite flower?"

Tom leaned over, touched his wife's arm gently and whispered, "It's Pillsbury, isn't it?


A man walks into a pharmacy and wanders up & down the aisles.

The sales girl notices him and asks him if she can help him.

He answers that he is looking for a box of tampons for his wife.

She directs him down the correct aisle.

A few minutes later, he deposits a huge bag of cotton balls and a ball of string on the counter.

She says, confused, "Sir, I thought you were looking for some tampons for your wife?

He answers, "You see, it's like this, yesterday, I sent my wife to the store to get me a carton of cigarettes, and she came back with a tin of tobacco and some rolling papers; cause it's sooo-ooo--oo-ooo much cheaper.

So, I figure if I have to roll my own ....... so does she.
(I figure this guy is the one on the milk carton!)


A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word. An earlier discussion had led to an argument and neither of them wanted to concede their position.

As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs, the husband asked sarcastically, "Relatives of yours?"

"Yep," the wife replied, "in-laws."


A husband read an article to his wife about how many words women use a day...30,000 to a man's 15,000.

The wife replied, "The reason has to be because we have to repeat everything to men..."

The husband then turned to his wife and asked, "What?"


A man said to his wife one day, "I don't know how you can be
so stupid and so beautiful all at the same time.
"The wife responded, "Allow me to explain.
God made me beautiful so you would be attracted to me;
God made me stupid so I would be attracted to you !


A man and his wife were having an argument about who should brew the coffee each morning.

The wife said, "You should do it because you get up first, and then we don't have to wait as long to get our coffee.

The husband said, "You are in charge of cooking around here and you should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my coffee."

Wife replies, "No, you should do it, and besides, it is in the Bible that the man should do the coffee."

Husband replies, "I can't believe that, show me."

So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament and showed him at the top of several pages, that it indeed says .......... "HEBREWS"


A man and his wife were having some problems at home and were giving each other the silent treatment.

Suddenly, the man realized that the next day, he would need his wife to wake him at 5:00 AM for an early morning business flight. Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper, "Please wake me at 5:00 AM." He left it where he knew she would find it.

The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM and he had missed his flight Furious, he was about to go and see why his wife hadn't wakened him, when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed.

The paper said, "It is 5:00 AM. Wake up."

Men are not equipped for these kinds of contests.

God may have created man before woman, but there is always a rough draft before the masterpiece.

Email humor 10/05/2006

An email chain letter that almost made me cry

I know, I am a woman trapped in a man's body...This is just one part of the entire chain letter that was title something about how we should treat others in the world because you never know who you might have been helping - one was about in the 1960s how a white man helped a black woman who was stranded on a highway during a rainstorm and it turned out to be Mrs. Nat King Cole.

Anyway, this is the only one that really caught my gut because I would have done this for my brothers and sisters when I was a young boy and before I was wisened by the years of seeing their true colors.

It also got me because my kids would do this for each other as youngsters and I think they would do it later because that's the type of morals and principles we have instilled in them and will continue to build upon so they won't turn out like my crap-hole brothers and sisters and nieces and nephews have.

Anyway, to the point...I'm sure most of this is made up but it rings some truth to it in the real world.
Giving when it Counts...

Many years ago, when I worked as a volunteer at a hospital, I got to know a little girl named Liz who was suffering from a rare serious disease. Her only chance of recovery appeared to be a blood transfusion from her 5-year old brother, who had miraculously survived the same disease and had developed the antibodies needed to combat the illness. The doctor explained the situation to her little brother, and asked the little boy if he would be willing to give his blood to his sister. I saw him hesitate for only a moment before taking a deep breath and saying, "Yes I'll do it if it will save her." As the transfusion progressed, he lay in bed next to his sister and smiled, as we all did, seeing the color returning to her cheek. Then his face grew pale and his smile faded.

He looked up at the doctor and asked with a trembling voice, "Will I start to die right away".

Being young, the little boy had misunderstood the doctor; he thought he was going to have to give his sister all of his blood in order to save her.

STOLEN: Black and silver bike seat...

also stolen was the nut, bolt and clamp that holds the seat secure and in place.

What is the world coming to when my bicycle seat is stolen while my bike was chained to a bike rack at the local rail station? Of course, I did leave there overnight but that is beside the point.

See, I had to ride my bike to the Mockingbird DART station because my wife was too busy to give me a lift in the vehicle. I needed to keep a schedule to get to Union Station in downtown Dallas to catch the TRE that goes to downtown Fort Worth. Anyway, I rode my bike to the station and chained it to the bike rack. My nephew met me later in the day in Fort Worth - I figured I could treat him to Risky's BBQ all-you-can-eat ribs. Good times! Anyway, he drove out there and I drove back to my home in Dallas, thinking I'd pick up my bike a while later after I rested and relaxed from a long train ride and a long day of walking around downtown Fort Worth.

Well, time passed and I forgot until about 10:30 p.m. that night. I was too lazy to get up and go get it. I figured that it was a cheap bike - it cost my brother about $75 - so who would want it. If someone stole it, it's not like I was out a whole lot if I had to buy a new one. I look back now and wonder why thinking like this was coming from me: a person who is a tight wad on certain expenditures and any money is a lot of money to me! Anyway, I stayed home and vowed to pick it up the next day.

The wife picked me up for lunch and we drove to the station to find my bike was still there, chained to the rack, seemingly untouched. As we got closer, I had to giggle a bit because that's when I noticed the bicycle seat was missing. Upon closer inspection, I see that they took the whole seat apparatus - the seat, the clamp that goes around the neck of the seat pole, and the nut and bolt to tighten the clamp. It's not like the seat was this awesome, one-of-a-kind thing that was really worth stealing. Hell, you can probably buy it for like $10 at Wal-Mart. Amazing!

I was amused at the time and effort and tools whoever it was had to remove the seat but they didn't try to remove the back tire. The front tire was chained to the rack as well as the frame of the bike. Maybe a twenty-six inch rim and tire is not as easily smuggled from the scene of the crime as just the seat. Who knows!

Anyway, I guess the lesson learned is nothing is NOT not valuable enough to be not stolen.

Does Ron Jeremy still have it?

Or is this just a nasty, disillusioned "redneck"? I'm just jealous because I'd like complete stranger chicks - hell, any attractive chick for that matter - to let me grope their boobies...and not go to jail for doing so! HA!

So, once again, I ask what is True really selling here? The girl on the left looks like her clothing is painted on. They both look like I'm getting lucky on the first date. They also look like the types of women you see on chat services or phone sex ads but you are really talking to "Large Marge."

By the way, I don't search these photos out nor am I part of the service. If you have a Yahoo email account or visit Yahoo.com at all, you can't help but see these advertisements. Anyway...
