So Hip & Trendy

Tuesday, June 30, 2015 4:00 pm

Burnishing her modern tech-culture credentials, Hillary Clinton released her official campaign playlist on Spotify.

Very impressive. Do you know how hard it is to upload Benny Goodman from a 78?

Trust Us, We’ve Totally Got Your Back

America’s UN Ambassador, Samantha Power, said that US support for the Ukraine against Russian aggression is “unwavering”.

It’s true. Technically, non-existent things can’t waver.

I’m just glad Baumgartner didn’t do that weird fist-pumping thing like Superman.

“Jurassic World” brought in $209 million in its first weekend in theaters – the highest-grossing opening weekend of all time.

Everyone sure loves dinosaurs. Just imagine the energy at Hillary’s campaign HQ.

Going the Extra Mile

Monday, June 29, 2015 4:00 pm

During a recent interview, President Obama said he actually responds to angry letters people write to him.

I have this weird mental image of him hooking his teleprompter up to his autopen.

The State Department said it has no record of Hillary Clinton receiving IT security training while she was Secretary of State.

She has her own email server. Maybe she was home-schooled.

Sphere of Death!

[Pasaulio rekordas: 12 mirties kilpu automobiliu] (Viewer #10,214)

On Sunday, extreme motorsports fans attracted to the Park, where there was an international stunt show “Flying cars”. Although the program of the event significantly corrected the rain, stunt succeeded in capturing three world records.

I’m not sure how impressive this actually is, but I like it mostly for the look on the driver’s face after he exits the sphere. His expression is of someone who – having done the impossible – has been rewarded with being pardoned from the life sentence he was serving in a Siberian gulag.

At least, that’s how it plays out in my head…

It Just Got Colder

Sunday, June 28, 2015 8:00 pm

A Russian fighter jet came within 10 feet of a US Air Force reconnaissance aircraft in international airspace over the Black Sea last month.

My prediction: Putin’ll be banging his shoe on a podium before the year is out.

Bang for Your Buck

Sunday, June 28, 2015 12:00 pm

A recent poll shows that Americans estimate that Washington wastes 51 cents of every dollar it spends.

Not true. Those funds are invested in important things like money pits, boondoggles, and the very silkiest of sow’s ear purses.
