Cartoon of the Day – Shutdown


[Jerry Holbert – GoComics]

Oh, if only.

Of course, the government won’t really shut down. They’ll keep “essential services” running. Which means that government had services that aren’t essential. Which government shouldn’t be doing anyway.

Tuesday Night Open Thread

I had the chance to babysit for the youngest grandson this weekend. Twice.

One of the things he likes to do is watch Finding Dory. He calls it Fish, probably because he’s 20 months old. “Papa, I wan’ watch Fish.”

So, we got to watch Fish, um, Finding Dory.

With women now serving aboard submarines, the Navy is building new subs specifically to accommodate female crew members.

So… clothesline running down the middle of the ship to hang pantyhose on?

Basically, It’s Every Liberal’s Jobs Bill

[Vimeo direct link]

The video itself is apolitical, but I’ll make the obvious analogy:

When you’ve got too much money on your hands, bad decisions inevitably follow.

With elected Democrats, it’s too much of other people’s money, and the decisions are infinitely worse.

New studies show that botox may be an effective treatment for depression.

Huh… if that’s true, how come Nancy Pelosi’s so grouchy?

In Five Years, There’d Be a Shortage of Sand

New studies estimate that there are 150 million pieces of space junk orbiting the earth which could potentially damage a spacecraft or satellite.

I can only think of one path to clear skies – create a government program whose purpose is to maintain the current level of space junk.

Monday Night Open Thread

It’s Monday night! Don’t look at that like it’s a bad thing. You see, that Monday at work? It’s over. Behind you. Done. In the past.

Oh, and in less than 96 hours, it’ll be Friday night and the beginning of the weekend.

So, it’s a mix of happy and sad. And that made me think of this:

[The YouTube]

The topic, or topics, discussed tonight are entirely up to you. Tell a joke, make up a lie, share your darkest secret, whatever you like. It’s Monday Night Open Thread.

I’m Sure the Bay Area Was a Popular Destination

Census data shows that more than 1 million people moved out of the New York area to other parts of the country – the highest negative net migration rate among the nation’s large population centers.

I can only assume they moved to parts of the country that already had the soda bans they so desperately craved.

What’s Really Disturbing Is How Well This Works

[The Silence of the Lambs as a Romantic Comedy – Trailer Mix] (Viewer #180,318)

Ah, the power of music and selective editing.

Remember this any time you watch anything on TV from any media source.

And don’t even get me started on campaign commercials, which have it down to a boring science of “scary words and music over black and white picture of my opponent, followed by happy music and a color picture of me standing in front of a flag”.
