Things are bouncing around today. I slept in, which meant I missed a call from my boss about a possible schedule change. Then I made a buncha phone calls, and I took one from a woman who said someone had called with MY phone number asking for church information. I told her I had just awakened and my phone had been off that entire time - which was, of course, true.

I hope I haven't been cloned.


They are having to require permits for laser pointers in Australia because some assholes are using them on pilots - like, during take-off and landing. Pilots get blinded for a split-second, and sometimes that's all it takes.

It's sad that such an extreme measure is needed just because some people think it's fun to cause accidents. We had a spate of those here in California - some fuckheads thought it would be funny to shine a laser pointer in the eyes of helicopter pilots and that they wouldn't get caught. Turns out, they DID get caught and punished.

I have a much better use for a laser pointer - making Solange chase the beam and get some exercise.


Last night all three candidates had filmed promos on WWE Raw.

Actual line: "Can you smell what Barack is cookin'?"


Interesting take on this week's cover of Time by Dennis Prager.

Judging from some of the discussions I've had, Prager is correct - the left fights AGW because it's safer than fighting Islamic extremism.


Speaking of Time magazine...

FARK runs Photoshop contests every once in awhile. Here's one that asks - what would you put on a Time cover?

Some of these are pretty funny. Not all are political.


Okay, I need to get moving if I'm gonna get lunch before work.

Be seeing you.

It's not that fighting AGW is safer, it's that they're more afraid of climate change (end of the world) than Islamic extremists coming here and makin' all the girls wear burquas.
