Is he planning to be the first passenger, or must we draw straws for the privilege?

Even the formerly innocuous libs cannot resist the temptation to virtue signal where Trump is concerned:


Larry Sabato
‏Verified account @LarrySabato

Last night’s Trump rally proved again that vulgar antics thrill his base. The office hasn’t made the man; instead, Trump has re-made the office, lowering standards of acceptable presidential behavior so far that it will take great efforts by his successors to repair the damage.

Hi, Kev--here I am! Just out of the shower after painting for six hours (am bespotted). That's very cool re Percy's correspondence with Foote. I love the Civil War trilogy--it is so humane--but I love Percy even more, who felt the call and went all in, and then made sense of it as a scientist--and then a semiotician/linguist. All the novels are great, but have you read Lost in the Cosmos or its more complete cousin, Message in a Bottle?

The office is what it always was; the current occupant is a little more forthright.

If you doubt Cuck Todd was upset by that comment at the rally last night, watch this interview with Mnuchin.

I must say, Mnuchin handled this quite well.

MM, I couldn't resist replying to that bubble-dweller Sabato:

"Larry, when you're willing to decry the vulgarity and dishonesty of the media, let's talk. Until then, STFD and STFU."

Trump talks like my father did. (I am an older woman.) He is speaking the truth in plain language and I appreciate it. Larry, I have watched you on C-SPAN for 20 years & followed you on Twitter for quite a long time. I am disappointed that you do not understand how I think.

henry,

Comment I saw on Twitter:

"Trump: Making EARTH great again!"

Miss Marple the Deplorable

henry,

Your comment about the 70% reduction in Nork cash flow goes right along with the Conservative Treehouse link I posted explaining how Trump uses economic leverage.

And he does this without committing troops and getting people killed.

Very stable genius, if you ask me.

I don't really know what that column said, but obviously it has irritated a lots of Trump supporters.

How Do You Like These Potatoes

What if they get to Mars and they build a shelter but then a storm comes along and they need to leave quickly but one astronaut gets hit by flying debris, the others figure he's a goner so they take off without him. Then on way back to earth they find out he is still alive and growing veggies in the shelter and listening to disco music. Seems risky. How would he get back before food ran out?

narcisocenfl

F Chuck was obviously emotionally unstable during that entire interview. Perhaps NBC should consider bringing Monkey Boy back for some relative professionalism.

Iggy,

Yesterday on one of the local Japanese channels they had an interesting segment, all in Japanese so I couldn't understand it, of possible ways the ancient Easter Islanders moved their carved statues from the quarry to the their hillside settings. They suggested this method as an alternative so it appears they might not have needed any stinking trailers.

"my nutsack and my tool have ballooned" - words I never expected to read on JOM😵😂

RG,

Just caught up on your current ailment. I feel horrible about it of course and know you must be feeling something awful, but it reminded me a bit of that marvelous description in Hakluyt's "Voyages and Discoveries" (1582) about the South Asian practice of sewing various small bells into the "nut sack and/or the tool" in order to liven one's step and enhance pleasure for the Mrs:

A woman told me later that the inventor of it [penis bells] was a queen of Pegu. Indeed, in her time there were a lot of inhabitants of that kingdom having [same-sex] affection. They inherited us one of the greatest punishments [penis bells for men]. The women with their vasquinas (a kind of petticoat) kept open from the navel to below, so that their thighs were exposed when walking. They did that so the men would have more taste [interest] in women and sodomy would drop. The bubbles may be of gold, silver or brass… Countless small shops in cities and towns sell nothing but such bruncioles. Those who do not wear them have bad reputation as [gay] men.[20]

Antonio Pigafetta, one of the few men to complete Magellan's Voyage around the world in 1519-1522 mentions the practice as well, so we know it was quite popular for centuries in South East Asia if not still so:


Figure 8 (above) A geographical distribution of penis inserts of every type (orange line) and penis bells (red circle), and their historical spread (red arrows) and spread in modern time (blue arrows).

...Use of penis bells by the Lao was also mentioned in the book of John Bulwer, Anthropometamorphosis (1653). Other European records also mention penis bells among the Siamese, including the Portuguese Tome├м Pires in 1515, the Florentine Francesco Cerletti’s observation of Siamese sailors in Macao in 1600, and a Dutch record of golden bells worn by wealthy Siamese in Patani.[32] Similar documentation is also found for people in Tenasserim and Martaban in 1511, and Arakan in 1724.[33]

Anyhow, just thought I'd toss it out there as a suggestion for something to do if you're bored, since you're already in pain and apparently already 'ballooned,' so why let a good crisis go to waste is my motto, especially since Mrs RG might approve:)

Over to you Anonamom---is this a healthy practice in your professional opinion?

Who else is on Lake Como? I was thinking the Pope's summer residence, but that's on another lake.

Dongo on Lake Como is where Mussolini was captured and I think executed.

...On 25 April he fled Milan, where he had been based, and tried to escape to the Swiss border. He and his mistress, Claretta Petacci, were captured on 27 April by local partisans near the village of Dongo on Lake Como. Mussolini and Petacci were shot the following afternoon, two days before Adolf Hitler's suicide.

This Spectator link may or may not be helpful (probably the latter;) A beautiful place to die: Mussolini at Lake Como

If your destiny is to be shot dead with your mistress, where better than Lake Como, which, in the words of Shelley, ‘exceeds anything I ever beheld in beauty, with the exception of the Arbutus Islands in Killarney’?

daddy, several years ago you posted the link of astronomy picture of the day. I bookmarked it. Have you seen today's? Made me think of you. :) Really cool video.

https://apod.nasa.gov/apod/astropix.html

daddy

Joan,

Very cool video. Especially love the Aurora Borealis at the beginning, and cruising over the big lit cities makes me feel like I'm riding shotgun with Otto in the radioactive car at the end of one my fav low budget movies, Repo-Man.

I've mentioned this before but after seeing that video I'll tell it again for fun. We have a former Astronaut at the company. He's a wonderful guy, extremely modest, and he's way junior to me, so I'm lucky every once in a while to get him as my co-pilot.

I read people decently I think, and I knew thru the grapevine that he was not boisterous at all and preferred to just be treated as one of the boys, so on our first trip together when we met in Ops I treated him just like I would any other 'newby' and he had no idea I knew who he was and what he'd done in his previous life since I never mentioned it and we just went about our business like normal, but then about 2 hours into the leg we were over northern Canada at midnight and the Aurora was going off like crazy to my left so we turned out all the lights in the cockpit and just stared at the fab light show for a while, and after a bit I simply said to him, "So what's it look like from up there?"

He very matter of factly deadpanned back something like, "Pretty much the same."

Then a few minutes later he simply asked, "So how'd you know?" and I laughed and just explained how most guys knew but we didn't want to hassle him but since I had the Aurora and I had him, I had to ask, and we laughed about that and from then on we got on very good and I still don't hassle him at all about it. And flying over Tokyo Bay at night looks almost exactly like that NASA video except we're slowed way the heck down.

Yesterday: Senator Jeff Flake: Trump’s Behavior Causing Journalists to Be Jailed Overseas, Doing ‘Real Damage Long Term’

3 Feb 2015: WaPo: A Republican Joins Obama in Seeking Ties to Cuba

WASHINGTON — Two days before President Obama ended a half-century of diplomatic estrangement with Cuba, his national security adviser, Susan E. Rice, asked Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona to be the only Republican on a secret flight to Havana to bring home a jailed American, Alan P. Gross — and to tell no one.

“I felt like I was in a Tom Clancy novel,” Mr. Flake said...

6 Jan 2018: Sen. Jeff Flake says no evidence of ‘sonic attacks’ in Cuba

Anyone who trusts a word out of Flake's mouth needs to have their head examined.

Am listening to a Scott Adams periscope.

He points ot that there is one person in the world who knows both President Trump and Kim Jong Un:

DENNIS RODMAN

Adams makes the point that it would relax Kim and would take away from the photo op of Trump towering over Kim.

Plus he says that the entire planet would stop to watch.

Also, it would make Ben Rhhodes' head explode:
