A GOP Congressman on Fox News just now dropped a major Avengers Endgame spoiler in making a political analogy. Bad move on his part

Snowing. I’m staying put warming my toes by the fire. I will wander by the fridge for beer when the Blues game comes on, but I’m not going away.

Jane

Did anyone else get Imprimus today?

Fun to see Thomas Kuhn play a starring role in Wretchard's latest (linked in the previoius thread): Get Ready for a Paradigm Shift

henry

Hmmm. No link to source though.

@5strat

For the first time since polling of Identities began in the 60's, gays and lesbians are split 50/50 between the GOP and Dem Party.

That's 2 years removed from 80% Dem Party / 20% GOP.

America is waking up and the Gays / Lesbians are pretty smart cookies. #WWG1WGA

Stupid question: Is that actually Don McLean in that parody video at the end of TWIP?

Also: can anyone explain the pic about the Neo-Hegelian, Thomism thang?

Don’t miss the comments, either!

" gays and lesbians are split 50/50 between the GOP and Dem Party."

I can explain the change.

50% of gays are busy being people. And the other 50% are busy being gay.

Best thing about the comments at TWIP is the Tito Puraw memes.

Some are better than TWIP ones.

Agreed, Jack.

JM Hanes

Makes perfect sense, Jane.

I always appreciate being reminded to check TWIP comments! I don't know why I never remember to do it myself, maybe because of the extra click it takes to get there.

Pope sends aid to migrants stranded at the US border

Pope Francis has donated 500,000 dollars to assist migrants in Mexico. The funds, from the Peter’s Pence collections, will be distributed among 27 projects promoted by sixteen Mexican dioceses and religious congregations, which requested assistance in continuing to provide food, lodging, and basic necessities to the migrants.

do any of you have any idea of what the gross tonnage of Mega McCain is? Because I saw a side view of her in a clip from The View and even a detractor such as I was shocked by how huge she was.

Posted by: Captain Hate | April 27, 2019 at 08:06 AM

How much does she displace? Just to account for possible dunnange.

If you want to compare her to a Wilson Sister you have to specify Nancy or Carney.

I went to Wal Mart last night to grab a few things and I found something on an end cap called Keto Coffee by Mighty Coffee. I think it's basically Generation X's version of Sanka. It's instant, add to hot or cold water. Grass Fed Butter included although I added some cream. It could be good for a Bug Out Bag, camping or tailgating perhaps. I had to do something to make up for the garlic naan bread I had last night.

Just to go back quickly to the grasshoppers, crickets, locusts etc, I believe they were considered clean animals because they are not scavengers. I don't know what would happen if you put them in a jar with nothing to eat but cheese or eggs but they are vegetarians and less annoying than most human vegetarians. Qualitatively.

I've been addicted to reading Quora lately, for whatever reason. This guy was talking about how his son got in trouble for calling a classmate an incredibly dirty word. He was a pilot and had been tutoring his son up at home.

He goes to meet the principal and asks him what term his son used. The principal gets a little red faced and replies," A pitot tube." This guy burst out laughing. I don't do the story justice but I thought you pilots would appreciate the gist of it.

henry

Plimsoll in chemistry is the standard state of a substance or solution. She is the standard state of being plump, and an idiot at the same time :)

Does anyone believe the germ phobic DJT stuck his wang in an STD mosh pit like Sloppy Daniels other than idiot French and the few nits who take him seriously? We know that he's buds with Jenna Jameson because she used to use a photo of them as her Twitter main photo. Jenna's much better known than Sloppy and is out of the biz and outspokenly conservative. For all I know Trump ran into Sloppy at a party they were both attending and were seen chatting together and thought "this hose receptacle is sleazy enough to try and extort something in the future so let me pay her to go away". The gossipy French has no evidence he had "an affair" with her and just triggers Beldar Trout and Dananuta to suck up to the head monkey by repeating "Trump's a liar".

Making HIV political and not following SOP of having people who were positive with this sexually transmitted disease report their contacts under penalty of law killed thousands, probably tens of thousands, of people by allowing this virus to spread virtually unchecked, and risked the lives of innumerable medical workers.
