ACLU of California launches cellphone app to preserve videos of police

You know things are getting out of hand when the ACLU decides to stick it's neck out like this.

Because the laws concerning the videotaping of Law enforcement and people in general vary wildly from state to state, before anyone gets all trigger happy with the Smart Phone, I would absolutely recommend you become familiar with the laws concerning such things in the state you live in and any that you may visit frequently. There are general rules for the Press that you should also be aware of.


The consequences of violating these laws can be severe.

Another thing that I found while preparing this post is that there are very confusing different takes on the legality of recording police and that you should find out what your state laws say without any doubt at all.

I am all for doing whatever it takes to try and put the Genie back in the bottle when it comes to stopping police brutality and the over the top notion that police employees are above reproach and all powerful.

Nobody should consider themselves all powerful yet time after time we see police officers commit heinous offenses and get away with them.

If this ACLU cell phone app catches even one bad cop and results in the appropriate corrective action then it will be worth the effort in my opinion.

Microsoft Replacing Internet Explorer, Finally

I am the farthest thing from a computer geek you could imagine and still be able to semi use one of the damn things but even I got sick and tired of Internet Explorer years ago and went with Firefox.

So Microsoft has announced that they are going to release their new web Browser that was code named Project Spartan and call it Edge.

Imaginative bunch ain't they?

Microsoft's newest web browser will be called Microsoft Edge, providing a definitive name for the codenamed Project Spartan, the company has confirmed.

Speaking at Microsoft's annual Build developers conference, Microsoft's corporate vice president of operating systems Joe Belfiore explained that all Windows 10 devices will ship with the new browser, replacing Internet Explorer for good.

Edge is significantly faster than its predecessor and includes a built-in notation tool, further integration with digital assistant Cortana to offer more personalised results and actions, and a reading mode, Belfiore said.

"For us, the name refers to the idea of being on the edge of consuming and creating," he added. "It refers to the developer notion of being closest to the modern capabilities of the web."

Edge will also be capable of supporting Chrome and Firefox extensions, allowing developers to carry their favourite plug-ins to the new browser.



That last bit there cracked my ass up.

You have to give props to the developers at Firefox when even the inventors of the Blue Screen Of Death come out with a new product that specifically makes sure to be able to interface with a competitors product.

I still won't use it though.
Those clever people at Microsoft are in bed with the government and you can bet the farm that there are backdoors in that thing that the NSA has propped open already just waiting for you to turn on.

With All The Recent Fun Going On In Baltimore, Is Anyone Else Starting To Notice A Pattern Here?

If you haven't then I suggest you just go back to sleep.


(
Reuters) - Thousands of police in riot gear and National Guard troops patrolled Baltimore to enforce a curfew on Tuesday night, dispersing protesters with pepper spray a day after the city was shaken by the worst rioting in the United States in years.

With helicopters overhead and armored vehicles on the ground, most people respected a curfew that started at 10 p.m. EDT (0200 GMT Wednesday) and goes until 5 a.m. all week.

But a few hundred people defied authorities, gathering at an intersection that was the scene of heavy looting in the largely black city a night earlier. Police broke up the group using rubber bullets and projectiles with pepper spray chemical irritant, and arrested seven people. Three more were arrested elsewhere in the city.

Baltimore erupted in violence on Monday hours after the funeral for a black man who died April 19 after he was injured in police custody a week earlier.


There is most definitely a pattern emerging here, look to the recent events in Ferguson MO just in case you have short term memory issues.

The Mayor of Baltimore calling for the police to step aside and let these animals burn off some energy so to speak, along with a few hundred cars and buildings, was a catastrophic dereliction of duty in my opinion.

Of course she is walking that back as fast as she can .

Even that didn't work out so good.

You apparently can't be calling rioting, looting and burning hooligans "Thugs" without someone getting all butthurt anymore.

In a news conference Monday night, she faulted the media, saying, "It is very unfortunate that members of your industry decided to mischaracterize my words and try to use it as a way to say that we were inciting violence."

But in the same news conference, mayor set off a fresh firestorm with more comments.

"It is idiotic to think that by destroying your city, you're going to make life better for anybody," she said. "Too many people have spent generations building up this city for it to be destroyed by thugs who, in a very senseless way, are trying to tear down what so many have fought for."

Her use of the word "thugs" was met by accusations of racism against Rawlings-Blake, a 45-year-old Democrat who has received recognition for her achievements as a minority, including an award for being a trailblazer from the National Congress of Black Women.

Damned if you do and damned if you don't. Don't worry about me though, I won't be calling them Thugs, I have too much respect for a genuine Thug.

These ignorant sonsabitches running around all jacked up and burning parts of their own cities down , are they trying to make a point here?

Because the only thing I am getting out of it is that there are some stupid motherfuckers living in these cities.
There used to be a saying about cutting off your nose to spite your face, these people have taken that to a new level.


The pattern I am seeing is that these people are getting bolder and bolder every time I read one of these stories and don't let anyone try and convince you that some jackass running out of a store that is being looted with an arm load of Oreo cookies gives a flying fuck about whoever got killed by the Po Po the week before.
I'll call bullshit on that every time.


Get used to seeing this crap more and more, there is always going to be something that these kinds of lawless fuckers will use as an excuse to burn and loot and now that they are basically getting away with absolute lawlessness it will be coming to a city near you.

They aren't smart enough to see the long term consequences of shitting in their own nest yet but I am very much hoping to see stories later of how much they are enjoying living in the burned out shell of a city that they helped destroy.

Who am I trying to kid?

You can set your clock by the timing of the stories that will be coming out next year about the hardships these poor innocent souls are having to endure due to the actions of a few imaginary bad people who only exist in the past and aren't still hanging around the same street corner they were this time last year,fondling a warm Zippo and munching on a bag of Oreo cookies.

Bad Graphics Driver Issues (Updated)

I have been having intermittent issues with the display on this here Laptop for quite a while now but lately it has gotten not only more frequent but harder to correct.
It has an AMD graphics card in it and I have been able to update it on occasion but it is one serious pain in the ass.

I am wondering if it isn't that the inside of this thing hasn't got a layer of cat hair covering everything.
It wouldn't surprise me.
I am going to have to try and open this thing up and blow it out later without fucking it up.

That should prove to be interesting.
In the mean time I have been fucking with this since I got up and now I have to go to work. We shall see if the update sticks when I get home.

Update,
It seems to have stuck this time,I turned it completely off, took the battery out and gave it some TLC.
I have to admit this thing has exceeded my expectations over the years but it is starting to get pretty beat up.
It has, how shall I say, issues, some most of which have been inflicted by yours truly.

In the mean time lets test the graphics and find some visuals to share.




Hmmm, Testing, testing.......



That's better.

Pennsylvania Lawmaker/Ex Cop Wants To Introduce Legislation Criminalizing Taunting Police Officers

Because you know, they might get their feelers hurt.
Nevermind that pesky Free Speech thingy you may have heard rumors about in the past.

Pennsylvania Lawmaker Wants To Make It Illegal To Taunt A Police Officer

 

In Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, earlier this week, lawmakers, police officers and other supporters gathered at the state capitol to celebrate Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. Amid praise for those who wear the badge, state Rep. Dom Costa (D), former chief of the Pittsburgh Police, suggested he would introduce legislation to protect police officers -- not from physical harm, but from getting their feelings hurt by citizens.
Following comments by state Sen. John Rafferty (R), who spoke about criminal targeting of police and encouraged attendees to support his resolution to recognize 2015 as the “Year of the Law Enforcement Officer,” Costa discussed another supposed threat to police.
"This nonsense that is going today on where police officers are being taunted by people and being provoked, let's face it we’re all human beings, and eventually that emotion will break. And that’s what they’re trying to do," he said, according to Raging Chicken Press, seemingly speaking about anyone who would verbally challenge police. "So, what I’ve talked to some of my colleagues and the senator [Senator Rafferty] is that we have a bill about taunting a police dog. It’s illegal. There should be out that you can’t taunt a police officer because you’re going to get those emotions up. [We] are looking at that bill to put it forward in the House, and I am sure the Senate will follow. Or at least support that bill."

 




At this point in our long slow slide to absolute tyranny I would like to stop for a moment to point to this particular article as the absolute epitome of what is wrong with this country and why we are where we are right now.

We have elected officials who have absolutely no clue of how our government is supposed to work and instead find ever more ridiculous thoughts that they wish to make law.

The real problem here is that they do make them laws, irregardless of their basis in reality or in the context of well thought out long term effects.

Knee jerk feel good legislation that adds yet another layer of regulation or prohibition against what has historically and with legal precedence been perfectly legal for CENTURIES.

Because some podunk cop with no self control might get his or her feelings hurt when you call them a Jack Booted Thug, this clown wants to make that act illegal.

I have one thing to say to Mr.Dom Costa.

You sir, are a menace to a free society.

This is why we have recall petitions available to us to get rid of unqualified jack asses who somehow manage to get into office before they show just how dangerously stupid they are. If recall petitions do not do the trick we do have other means that have worked in the past and may well be coming to a voting district near you very soon.


If you somehow managed to reach adult hood without grasping the concept that Free Speech is absolutely guaranteed and sacrosanct in this country then you should have no reasonable expectation to hold the authority to tell anyone to do anything at any time, ever.

Our country is lost to us until we can educate our citizens again and that has been under attack for fifty years now so I am not holding my breath.

The Fix Is In, Senate Confirms Loretta Lynch As AG.

I don't know why they even bother to show up and open their pie holes anymore.
It's all hot air and bluster when everybody with a pulse knows the outcome.


Loretta Lynch, after being kept waiting in the wings by the Senate for 5 1/2 months, was confirmed Thursday as the first African American woman to serve as attorney general.


Lynch was approved, 56-43, one of the narrowest margins in history for an attorney general nominee.

This Is Priceless!! "Fuck This Court".

Holy shit, this woman is off the charts.

Read some of this and don't tell me you have never wanted to do exactly the same thing at one time or another.
This lady goes full on Fuck You Very Much Mode, to a Judge!
It is fucking PRICELESS too!

Here is a taste , Rude, Vulgar and Heart Felt, every bit of it.

Michigan man taunts neighbors with Confederate flag and nooses outside home




“It’s a tree that is easily climbable,” said neighbor Nicole Behrendt. “Any kid could climb the tree and hang himself.”
Tomanovich fled inside his home when a WXYZ-TV reporter asked him for comment, but one of his employees admitted to hanging the second noose in response to the neighbor complaints.
“I love it,” said the employee, who displayed a Confederate flag license plate on his work pickup truck. “Screw ‘em.”
The employee, who declined to give his name, said he and his boss would not take down the flag or nooses.
“Hell, no,” he said. “We’re going to put up more.”

(Helpful picture of said employee)


Tomanovich’s wife, Lindy, said the display was not intended to be racist.
“Robert has a friend that died in that way (hanging himself), and that’s in memory of his friend,” she said.
She claimed her husband’s family is from the south and they simply like the way the Confederate flag looks.
“Maybe they got too much time on their hands,” Lindy Tomanovich said about her meighbors. “There’s no crime in hanging a noose.”
Police said the display did not likely break any laws since it does not appear the display was intended to target anyone in particular, but they hope to mediate the dispute between the homeowners and their neighbors.


'Merica.

Embarassing Airlines By Pointing Out Their Security Flaws Is A No No Apparently

For all the childish security theater we have seen in the last 14 years you would think that these air carriers would be serious about fixing security flaws as soon as they found out about them.

Instead it seems they rely on the TSA groping,fondling and intimidation to scare people into believing they are safe after they finally get on an airplane.

Because when a security expert Tweets that he believes that their onboard flight systems can be hacked, they freak the hell out and ban the guy from flying on their airplanes.

One more glaring example of just how pathetic all this hokem security flim flammery really is.


Researcher denied flight after tweet poking United security

 

WASHINGTON (AP) — United Airlines stopped a prominent security researcher from boarding a California-bound flight late Saturday, following a social media post by the researcher days earlier suggesting the airline's onboard systems could be hacked.
The researcher, Chris Roberts, attempted to board a United flight from Colorado to San Francisco to speak at a major security conference there this week, but was stopped by the airline's corporate security at the gate. Roberts founded One World Labs, which tries to discover security risks before they are exploited.
Roberts had been removed from a United flight on Wednesday by the FBI after landing in Syracuse, New York, and was questioned for four hours after jokingly suggesting on Twitter he could get the oxygen masks on the plane to deploy. Authorities also seized Roberts' laptop and other electronics, although his lawyer says he hasn't seen a search warrant.
A lawyer for Roberts said United gave him no detailed explanation Saturday why he wasn't allowed on the plane, saying instead the airline would be sending Roberts a letter within two weeks stating why they wouldn't let him fly on their aircraft.

There is no need for a letter, a Post It Note saying "We are mad at you for making us look like idiots" should cover it.

So much for that "if you see something, say something" hooey.

It's all about the show people.
Don't pay any attention to that little man behind the curtain.

In recent weeks, Roberts gave media interviews in which he discussed airline system vulnerabilities. "Quite simply put, we can theorize on how to turn the engines off at 35,000 feet and not have any of those damn flashing lights go off in the cockpit," he told Fox News.

Roberts also told CNN he was able to connect to a box under his seat at least a dozen times to view data from the aircraft's engines, fuel and flight-management systems.

"It is disappointing that United refused to allow him to board, and we hope that United learns that computer security researchers are a vital ally, not a threat," said Nate Cardozo, a staff attorney with the San Francisco-based Electronic Frontier Foundation, which represents Roberts.
Cardozo said Sunday he hasn't seen a copy of a search warrant that would have been used to seize Roberts' electronics, and that he's working to get the devices returned.
The FBI declined to comment on the matter Sunday.

My emphasis.

If his being able to hook into their flight data at will doesn't scare the shit out of you I don't know what will.

That is criminal stupidity on their part for making that capability available in the first place.

Are you fucking kidding me?
That's a hackers wet dream come true and most likely means that some asshole with bad intentions could tap into that and start wreaking havoc with their data.

Unbelievable stupidity on someones part.

Normalcy Bias

I saw this over at It Ain't Holy Water, Chief Nose Wetter's place and it smacked me right between the eyes.




It's absolutely as true today as it was back when the Nazi's were running amok.

We are being assaulted in so many ways on so many fronts that we can't sit back and put it all into a Big Picture.

Unfortunately a lot of these abuses fly under the radar or have become so pervasive as to become every day events.

Boiling the frog as it were.

This is why the actual percentage of people protesting these abuses seems so small, it is.

How many people can you add up that you can point to and say that they are at least aware of current events and what is going on around them in this country?

I would point to the right of this page to my Blogroll and to the links you will find on their blogrolls.

A drop in the bucket when compared to the total population in this country.

Most people I know in Meat Space are blissfully unawares,most by choice.
I can point to several people in my immediate circle who actively avoid paying any attention to what is happening to them and their children and actually get annoyed if you bring it up.
Denial is a powerful defense mechanism.

These are my friends, relatives and fellow countrymen.

The proverbial Sheeple we have so many of that our government plays like a violin.

I'm the whacko, I'm the conspiracy theorist with a paranoia problem.

It just boggles my mind that no one seems to be bothered by our fellow countrymen being beaten to death or killed by local police for no good reason who then walk away daily from these homicides with zero consequences.

Then we have an out of control regulatory government and the list goes on and on of those who steal our liberty one small step at a time EVERY DAY.

So if nothing else, I suppose I shouldn't be surprised when I run afoul of some sonofabitch with the weight of the government behind his or her petty functionary position and I wind up dead as a public service for the greater good.

I can actually see this happening with my history of anti authoritarian attitude.


The Jewish people couldn't believe what was happening to them until they saw this,


Apparently the American people are no different, even when they have been warned.

Tea Party Patriot Says He May Vote For Hillary Clinton

It's very late and I was on my way to bed when I stumbled on this from looking at something else.

After reading this article I am suffering from cognitive dissonance and would be very interested to hear some other folks opinion on this.

Apparently he has some Youtube videos you can watch, the links are embedded in the original article.
Like I said, I am one foot in bed right now so you will have to click over for that shit.


A Tea Party conservative may be about to do what many in his movement consider unthinkable: vote for Hillary Clinton for president in 2016.

"I asked myself, ‘Which party has helped me out the most in the last, I don’t know, 15 years, 20?’ And it was the Democrats," James Webb, a 51-year-old charter member of his local Tea Party Patriots said in a video blog posted on YouTube. "If it wasn’t for Obama and that Obamacare, I would still be working.”

Webb said the Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. Obamacare, has allowed him to stop working without having to worry about paying high premiums for health insurance.

"I don’t trust the Republicans anymore because they’re wanting to repeal the Obamacare," Webb said in the clip. "And I don’t want them to do that, man, because then I’ll have to go to work again. My life’s already planned out.”

On the other hand, Webb may be "exhibit A" of why some Tea Partiers dislike the Affordable Care Act because in other videos on his "Hot Lead retired" channel, he boasts about how Obamacare has allowed him to retire at the age of 50.


Here is the money quote,

"Since Obama changed the rules, I took advantage of it and I quit my job and I got on Obamacare because I'm not going to work my ass off and pay higher taxes and pay higher insurance premiums just so I can pay for somebody else's health insurance while they're sitting on their ass at their house," Webb said. "So if anybody's going to be sitting on their ass at the house and getting their insurance paid for it's going to be my ass."

Webb has also written in the comments that he still believes Obamacare violates the Constitution, but "I made it work in my favor."


So, what do you think?

Man taken into custody after landing single-person aircraft on Capitol grounds



Washington (CNN)U.S. Capitol Police converged Wednesday on a small manned aircraft that has landed on the west front of the Capitol building in Washington, D.C. Police have taken the pilot into custody.

"The U.S. Capitol Police is investigating a gyro copter with a single occupant that has landed on the grassy area of the West Lawn of t‎he U.S. Capitol. The U.S. Capitol Police continues to investigate with one person detained and temporary street closures in the immediate area," said Capitol Police Lt. Kimberly Schneider in a statement to CNN.

According to White House spokesman Eric Schultz, the President has been briefed on the situation.




The Tampa Bay Times is reporting that the pilot is a mailman from Florida who planned the flight to protest the Supreme Court decision in Citizens' United case and the influence of outside money in politics. He told the Times that he wanted to deliver mail to lawmakers outlining his complaints.

A friend of the pilot who says he's known the man for years tells CNN that "there's nothing on the helicopter that is dangerous" and that the this flight was meant to send a message to Congress about campaign finance reform.

"He has no weapons or anything else," said Michael Shanahan. "I know him personally. He's like a pitbull when he has an idea. He wants to wake up the country."

Shanahan said the pilot called him before he took off.

"He's upset that politicians can be bought and sold at auction, and I agree with him. That's the point he's trying [to make]" Shanahan added.

"Happy he made it alive. I want to thank the people who decided not to kill him."


Ain't that the truth?

I'm sure the PTB will make a quick example of him for his temerity.
The guy has earned his asterisk in history though.

Cankles Throws Her Broom Into The Ring

Political opposition researchers everywhere start drooling uncontrollably.

Welcome to the kick off of the next round of the Never Ending Campaign Trail
.



I try to stay away from too much politics here, I cut my Blogging teeth on it though and am no stranger to the political machinations that have resulted in the complete dysfunctionality of the current state of affairs we find ourselves in.

Let me say this up front, Hillary Clinton is not fit to serve as the President and Commander In Chief of this country.

Period.


Do not , under any circumstances, try to convince me otherwise.

The fucking Democrats , me included at one time, have had their chance to right the ship of state and have not only failed spectacularly, they have with a singular purpose, done their level best to destroy what is left of These United States.

After watching this happen over the last six years I have come to the conclusion that the Democratic party has been subverted from within and needs to be honest with it's members and change its name and symbol.

The Democratic party I grew up with is dead and gone and has been overrun with extremists from the Socialist party.

I watched the progression of this as it was implemented one outrageous step at a time and raised Holy Hell with the only voice I have. It was with absolute disgust that I very publicly renounced my association with the actions and aims of that group several years ago.

Hillary Clinton is the embodiment of everything that I renounced then and reject now.

Let me also say something else just in case there are any illusions about politics left in this country, the gloves are off now bitch.

Every low blow and morally repugnant method of discrediting someone you could ever imagine is now on the table and will be used like a blunt instrument daily.

Hillary Clinton is obviously very aware of this as her ass has been drug through the mud on a regular basis for some time now.

So far however, this has been mostly swept under the rug by the Main Stream Media.

Those days are also over.

You can fully expect the Benghazi incident to come screaming back to the front pages along with the most recent Email scandal that hasn't even fully unfolded yet.

Those, Whitewater, Monica Lewinsky, ALL OF IT, is going to come right back to the front now.

The presidential campaign of 2016 is going to be very, very ugly.

My advice is to stock up on popcorn and settle in.

There is no way in Hell you are going to be able to escape it.

I'm Just A Giving Kind Of Guy


There was a time many moons ago when I was still a seriously fucked up, wild and out of control little punk that I had the cops called on me for blasting my music so many times that the cops finally told me that if they had to come back one more time that they were taking me and my my stereo both to jail.

I couldn't even begin to say how many sets of speakers I blew out over the years.
It's no wonder I am deaf in one ear and can't hear out of the other one.

And yes, I can be if you piss me off.........

I'm A Chicken Running Around Looking For My Head

Fuckin' crazy busy .

It's all family related of one sort or another and it's stuff that needs to get done and I am the guy who can do it, so I am.

I'm going to start hunting cats in the mean time, my wife, the crazy cat lady, fell asleep watching the boob tube in the bedroom last night with the door open and a half dozen or so of the little fuckers lurking around the house.

I had get up early, like 9:00 AM, so of course the little bastards took turns fucking with me all night long.
Jumping on me, waking me up, walking on me to get their little noses a half inch from mine, laying on me, fuck!


There has been some ongoing issues with my late Fathers Motorhome and a certain insurance policy that has resulted in litigation so I had to go fire that monster up and get it moved so some dude could come give it the once over.
That is all I'm going to say about that.
Dude was to be there at eleven so I had to get over there and get it moved,


That's done now.

NOW, I have to go to WORK!!
Tomorrow it's work on a different Sister In Laws car,maybe her kid's too, and of course there is the little bit of unfinished business involving multiple trips to the dump hauling yard debris that didn't get finished last week.

I see that I have 96 hours of personal time built up at work.

I'm thinking I am going to take a week and run off into the brush and go fishing, by myself, soon.
I don't give a flying fuck if it rains or not either.

Breaking News, Jury Reaches Verdict In Boston Bombing Case (Updated)

They haven't announced it yet but given that the defense attorney has admitted that the little fucker was involved in it pretty much guarantees at least one guilty count out of the thirty charges.

The announcement is expected later today.

Jury reaches verdict in Boston Marathon bombing trial

Los Angeles Times | April 8, 2015 | 10:31 AM
The federal jury in the Boston Marathon bombing trial has reached a verdict in the case against Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who is accused of committing the worst terror attack on U.S. soil since 9/11, court officials said today.
The verdict is expected to be announced shortly in the Boston federal courtroom.
Given the admission by Tsarnaev’s attorney that her client took part in the April 2013 bombing, a guilty verdict on at least some of the 30 counts is widely expected.
That would set the stage for a showdown between federal prosecutors and defense lawyers to determine if the young Russian immigrant will be sentenced to death in the case.

Update;


Boston Marathon bombing jury finds Dzhokhar Tsarnaev guilty

Los Angeles Times | April 8, 2015 | 11:15 AM

Rand Paul Running For President

Another crazy fucking bastard with no hope.

Let me tell you a funny story.

My father had a job once where he he had to go up on Capitol Hill and lobby those sonsabitches at one time.
This was way back in the 80's I believe.


He would be interacting with people and getting along just great, he was a very personable man and easy to make friends with.
All would be going fine until someone would introduce him to someone else.
All at once he would get these weird looks and the cold shoulder and for the life of him he could not understand why.

It wasn't until a year or so of this went by that he discovered the reason.

My Father's name was...... Ron Paul.


We are not related to Rand or his Dad in any way but it was always good for a laugh .

Especially since my Dad was a lifelong Democrat.

Best of luck to young Mr. Rand, he will need more than luck to even be called an Also Ran before this mess is over and I think I am going to sit this one out.
There ain't a snowballs chance in Hell that I am going to vote for that Ball Crusher Clinton, that's for damn sure.

Not this morning kiddies

I'm wiped the fuck out.
One very long day on my first one back to swingshift.

See ya's later.

Happy Easter Kiddies!

BWAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA!

Fuck that Easter Bunny.


It's Days Like This I Miss My Fucking Truck


Three trips to the dump in one day hauling shit like this,


in the back of one of these,


There is enough of that tree shit stacked up that it is going to take AT LEAST, four more trips.

I could have done it all in two with this,



I hated getting rid of that truck but I just didn't use it enough to justify keeping it.

That fucker was a Beast man. All 9 miles to the gallon of it.
People got clear the fuck out of the way when they saw that sonofabitch coming in their rearview mirrors.

Enough for one day though, three trips is enough and that shit isn't going anywhere unless another big wind storm comes blowing through. That's how I wound up with it in the first place.

I hope you all have a Happy Easter.

I've got a little something for that fucking Easter Bunny tomorrow.

MWAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA.

It Would Save ME Money!

I can't tell you how many fucking sets of headphones I have fucked up by ripping the connector apart by either tripping over the damn cord or trying to set down my Laptop and getting the cord hung up in the process.

I have tried fixing the connector before and you might as well forget that business.
Teeny tiny fucking wires smaller than a needle tip. Finger fucking a flea is about right.

Somebody has finally come up with a magnetic connection to cure this problem.


Sure, it's not super sexy news but it will save me some aggravation and I am all for being less aggravated by any means available.
