Good evening.

Soylent Red

Vampires treated as our enemies?

Hell, 52% of America elected them.

Thomas Collins

One must not be homosapienscentric and view those who suck blood out of humans as The Other; vampires are entitled to respectful consideration of their concerns.

Danube of Thought

I never drink...wine.


Hmm - a chance to put that silver I'm hoarding to good use. I wonder what the correct powder charge would be for a 110 grain TC silver bullet in 9mm?

Thomas Collins

I drink red wine. Does that make me an aspiring vampire?

C'mon, TM, if you are putting up a vampire thread, how about an NFL playoffs or upcoming 24 season thread?

Danube of Thought

Try 4.7 gr. of Bullseye. And keep a crucifix, a mirror and a sharp stake at hand.


Sometimes I think I'm the only person in America that finds the topic of vampires supremely boring.


No. I do, too.


just gonna load up the shotgun with silver buckshot. Someone get me some holy water and a cross.


That's good to know, Clarice. I mean, honestly. The only topic more boring than vampires is werewolves. Yawnnnn.

Rick Ballard

What did Goldman-Sachs do now?

Paul Zrimsek

Can I still discriminate against ninjas? That's chosen behavior.

Soylent Red

In the coming vampire takeover, you'd be wise to save your silver to barter for food and gasoline.

Removal of the head works just as well. Claymore, katana, corn knife, whatever.


Matt, glad to see that you're thinking rationally. Why risk missing the vampire with one silver bullet when you can catch him and any of his fellows joining him with a nice pattern of silver shot. Now, if we can just get vampire hunters to ask the priest for gallons of holy water instead of tiny vials and then load it into super-soakers....

Thomas Collins

Oh, c'mon, blogger formerly known as clarice and now posting as Clarice, and Porchlight, expand your horizons. I think Michelle fashion talk is boring, but I go through the posts and try to see the point of it all. Besides, this thread is bringing up tantalizing goth and vampire ads. :-))


Not so fast, my friend. is making a rapid comeback.


In 1977 PBS, as part of a series called “Great Performances,” featured a series called, I think, “Count Dracula” starring French actor Louis Jordan. If you have not seen it, you should. It was chilling.

Not the usual stuff.

Dave (in MA)

Wasn't the previous thread comparing Dingy Harry to Barnabas Collins?

2 vampire threads in a row... 3, if you a bloodsucker like Schmidt qualifies.


Sometimes I think I'm the only person in America that finds the topic of vampires supremely boring.

I don't even get it.


"Lycanthropy" is making the comeback. I'm clearly not.


so people are much more predisposed to believe in vampires, werewolves, aliens, global warming and that health care will not become more expensive than it currently is, but don't believe in a Higher Being....

boy am I wacky.....


We're in the hands on the 'best men' honestly, would I lie to you, in the LUN

Dave (in MA)

It kind of works.


Fair enough, TC. :)


I don't even get it

Scary movies--vampires..... It's a sexual thing from my hazy daze of psych 101.


AP IMPACT: Road projects don't help unemployment

WASHINGTON -- Ten months into President Barack Obama's first economic stimulus plan, a surge in spending on roads and bridges has had no effect on local unemployment and only barely helped the beleaguered construction industry, an Associated Press analysis has found.

Spend a lot or spend nothing at all, it didn't matter, the AP analysis showed: Local unemployment rates rose and fell regardless of how much stimulus money Washington poured out for transportation, raising questions about Obama's argument that more road money would address an "urgent need to accelerate job growth."

Obama wants a second stimulus bill from Congress that relies in part on more road and bridge spending, projects the president said are "at the heart of our effort to accelerate job growth."

With this kind of stuff coming out from the Obama-friendly press, we’re toast.

Frau Atomkraft

Brought in from the earlier thread:
"This statement casts a dark shadow over Sen. Lott's ability to be a credible party leader, ..." (Sen. Diane Feinstein who just denied that Dems had criticized Sen. Lott's statements about Strom Thurman)
Hmmmmm, Trent as zombie? Antebellum vampires sounds like a winning TV plot.


9 days left for Obama, the light-skinned Negro, to close Gitmo.

Let's give it a B+


actually, most Democratic Party policies are vampirism. Sucking the blood out of the taxpayer for very spooky programs......

The health care bill should be called "Dawn of the Dead" for that matter.


Taking the Measure of Obama's Foreign Policy

Saying that the U.S. will "bear witness" to abuses and brutality around the world is, in effect, to say that we will send flowers to funerals.

And I don't smoke s@#t.

Love at First Bite. Funny movie. "Children of the night, shut up!"


Maybe the MA Democrats could do a repeat of the Wellstone Memorial service for Teddy.


Werewolf? There...wolf.


I don't think Reid and Pelosi can be vampires. Vampires are supposed to be unbelievably good-looking right?


I don't think Reid and Pelosi can be vampires. Vampires are supposed to be unbelievably good-looking right? But only after a good feed. Tax revenues are down, dontcha know?


I have vampire redirectors on my computer..I thought today we'd finally resolved it, but NO.

I'd put a stake in the hearts of whoever creates and runs this malware if I could.

Thomas Collins

Clarice, I had to get my work computer replaced because of an attack of the vampire viruses. The worst thing about it was that I didn't go on any sketchy sites. If my computer is going to be attacked, I want it to be because I went to offthewalldisciplineandhumiliationbondage.com, not because I clicked some link off Instapundit!!! :-))


And just think of the vampires turned against their will. They did not want to be vampires, but they are vampires all the same. They hate vampires, vampires hate them, and humans hate them.

Well, to save one's neck, you gotta stone a few unwilling turned.


If you don't invite them in, then you won't have a problem.


"Vampires are supposed to be unbelievably good-looking right?"

Does this mean that if my wife gets bitten she'll suddenly get unbelievably good looking? If so I think I'm for it...except that that might mean no more of her killer "Garlic Chicken."

Crud, decisions, decisions.



I guess I always just assumed that your wife was beautiful and your children above average. I'd stick with the garlic chicken myself. Beauty is transitory, good garlic chicken is forever (or sometimes feels that way).

Will be in your neck of the woods for a Welcome Home Ball at Ft. Rich in late March.


Thanks Matt,

The Garlic Chicken it is then.

Hope we can do a rendezvous somewhere when you show up.

Just for interest, if I recall correctly that you're heading back to China;

Recently got my first counterfeit 100 RMB China note. Got it from a cash ATM in the hotel in Guangzhou. Have discovered that that is happening quite regularly now to some of my compadre's. When folks wouldn't accept it, I took it to the desk and they stuck it in a counterfeit identifier machine, which immediately went "Bonk" and spit it out.

Now I make sure I immediately take it straight to the hotel desk for determination if it's counterfeit after taking cash from an ATM.

And just for interest, the counterfeit has a brighter color yellow up near the top of the generally red bill than on the normal bill, and the watermark of Mao, instead of having his sort of 'Mona Lisa' smile, has a wooden expression, and an easy to spot messed up eyeball.

JM Hanes

I think it definitely works, Dave.

I'll make a note of that, daddy.


thanks, daddy...will be in Japan this trip. Quick over and back.
