Tuesday Night Open Thread

You ever take a tennis ball, show it to a dog, whistle at him, say “Go get it, boy!” and then fake a throw?

Sure you have.

No connection — at least, not that I’m admitting to — but you came along here, saw a new post at IMAO, thought “Hey, more funneh!” and am just now discovering it’s an Open Thread.

But that’s okay. You have something to say. Others do, too. Jokes, comments on things, naughty things to say about your sister, all kinds of stuff.

Join the fun. It’s Tuesday Night Open Thread. What’s on your mind?

My Salad Mysteriously Caught on Fire

A new experiment will be launched to the ISS to see if it’s possible to grow vegetables in space.

Great idea. Just don’t let any astronauts from Washington or Colorado near it.

Doesn’t This Technically Encourage Illiteracy?

[Why is THIS the power symbol? [LGR Retrospective]] (Viewer #351,484)

What really blows my mind is that there’s some shadowy, Bilderbergian conspiracy to inflict internationally understandable hieroglyphics on us and replace English language labels.

After all, a few English letters are also just symbols. And I can’t say that they’re any harder to learn after a little exposure and practice.

On the Upswing

According to a new Rasmussen poll, Trump’s approval rating has now hit 50%

If Trump does to North Korea what he did to Syria, I’ll bet he hits 60.

Cartoon of the Day – End


[Steve Kelley – GoComics]

Actually, I’m not that worried about things. I understand how some worry, but you have to remember, I lived through the Cold War.

On the other hand, as I was telling my crackpot neighbor the other day, it is quite dangerous today because at least, during the Cold War, they knew we didn’t want to blow up the world and we knew they didn’t want to blow up the world. Some people today, though, are crazy. And I’m not just talking about that nut in DPRK. If some of those Moslem Jihadists got their hands on nukes, all bets are off.
