  1. If you teabag loonies paid any attention to signs, some of you would be wearing a shirt and shoes and washing your hands after peeing.

  2. Well, the distant future involves the heat death of the universe, which isn’t very bright either.

  5. The Tea Party has once again come to the Democrat’s rescue. Has anyone seen where TP Commander Cruz has gone?

  6. That really is the worst avatar, Emery. Ugh. It looks like it was made by cavemen with access to only the crudest stone tools and modeled after record album covers from the early 1970s.

  7. PM and Emery: How’d you get your pictures to show up? When I log in, mine is generic blank.

  8. It doesn’t look like you worked hard on it, Emery. Personally, as a gentleman, I try to maintain certain standards of hygiene and appearance.

    Nah, hippies don’t bother me much — I went to college with a crapload of them. The problem was that was in the 1980s and the hippies did a lot of sputtering since they couldn’t get their Five Man Electrical Band fix because the albums were out of print and the radio was playing Kajagoogoo or something instead. It was a festival of cognitive dissonance.

  11. PM: You’re starting to sound a little cocky. Here is my challenge to you. Extract the same JFIF from the PDF files as I did. http://media.encrypted.cc/files/nsa/tor-stinks.pdf

    You won’t find that image anywhere else. Do you have the knowledge and skill to replicate my accomplishment? Or are you; “all hat and no cattle” as your avatar would suggest.
