Hey How Bout Some John Belushi

Who would have turned 63 last week if he hadn't died from a drug overdose back in 1982.

And here's Belushi's original audition for SNL in 1975:

US May Start Offering 100-Year Bonds

The U.S. government is now considering selling debt that would stretch out for 40 years, 50 years or even 100 years, according to minutes from last week's regular Treasury meeting. With interest rates so low, there's a growing belief that the government could benefit from locking in today's borrowing costs by pushing trillions in debt obligations decades into the future.
I guess we're hoping that all the bond holders will die off in the future or that the US somehow gets lucky and wins the World Lottery.

Obama: Hey Let's Tax the Rich Some More

After calling for a new civility, Obama used his SOTU address to demonize the most productive Americans. Again. A quote from his SOTU speech on January 25, 2011:
And if we truly care about our deficit, we simply cannot afford a permanent extension of the tax cuts for the wealthiest 2 percent of Americans. It's not a matter of punishing their success. It's about promoting America's success.

There are two problems with this: one, we're already taxing the hell out of the rich - currently the majority of federal revenues come just from the top 5% of income earners. And two, the rich are the people most able to change their behavior in order to lower their taxes.

How To Properly Enjoy Single Malt Whisky
Of course you're doing it all wrong. And you probably lack the balls for it.

Hey Don't Forget Mistress Day, Febuary 13th
Cause mistresses want to feel special too.

As the NY Daily News says, "Most cheaters devote the day before Valentine's to keeping their mistresses happy, since waiting until the day after makes them seem like an afterthought." This quote is amazing, since a mistress is, in every sense of the word, an afterthought, but god forbid they feel neglected!
And a longtime mistress offers these rules for a tomcattin' man to follow. Note that shirtless photos on Craigslist are generally a no no.

15 Ancient Mysteries That Arent So Mysterious
Well a good part of my childhood was spent wondering about these mysteries and they still make up approximately 45% of all History and Discovery channel programming. So I guess they'll never really be 'solved'.

Five Reasons Why Most Lottery Winners End up Poor Again
I've seen enough documentaries following lottery winners to know that most stories have a sad ending.

Winning the lottery isnt always what its cracked up to be, says Evelyn Adams, who won the New Jersey lottery not just once, but twice (1985, 1986), to the tune of $5.4 million. Today the money is all gone and Adams lives in a trailer.
Generally it's the poorest people who play the lottery and they tend to have 'poor'-thinking and 'poor'-habits, and getting a cash windfall ends up just throwing gas on the 'poor'-fire. And even if they can manage their money, they tend to lose their friends and family over jealousy issues. About the only happy endings are with people who were mostly well-off and satisfied with their lives to begin with.

Levi's Now Offering Ex-Girlfriend Jeans
Apparently enough guys like the femmy look of super skinny jeans that Levis is willing to cater to them.

Levis has delivered a swift blow to masculinity with the Ex-Girlfriend Jean. Remember the girlfriend with the great style? Heres a tribute to hera fit thats super-snug allover, an update of the five-pocket classic thats as skinny as it gets, the style description reads. All it costs is $69.50 to emasculate his bottom half.

End of an Era: No More Car Cassette Decks
Given how common and cheap CD players are these days I'm more surprised that they were even still around:

2011 marks the first year since Ive been alive, at least that you cant buy a new car with a factory-installed cassette tape player. The last model to be sold with one was a 2010 Lexus.

Its a medical mystery.

But there is an upside. Those tight jeans will keep the testes close to the body, raising their temperature and making sperm production less efficient. Thus there is less chance of them passing douchebag genes to the next generation.

of the rich - currently the majority of federal revenues come just from
the top 5% of income earners. And two, the rich are the people most
able to change their behavior in order to lower their taxes.

How on earth did we get to the point where not only requiring different people to pay different amounts of taxes is "fair", but even taxing them at different rates?

Find a liberal friend who makes more then you do and go out to lunch. When the check comes, hand it to him and say that this is the "fair" way to pay for lunch. See if he still agrees the "rich" should pay more...

3. Hey you guys know those high-speed rail trains the Dems wanna push on us? Well my self-loathing conservative "above it all" mr. independent twin bro has been posting video after video on facebook posting how we need high speed rail, I've been posting videos counter-arguing the case and posting comments w/ facts and stats on the faults. He started deleting the comments doing his best impression of Charles Johnson and started demanding I stop trying to indoctrinate him to oppose high speed rail lol. Worse thing about it all? He actually doesn't get the memo that the trains won't be at higher speeds then 70 MPH and keeps talking about shorter rides to other cities. And PS, he has admitted to the faults and basically replies to any evidence against it by saying "Damn the facts, I want my special train!"

So the kids are designing boxes for their Valentine cards to go in

Godzilla. As a nod to the theme, Godzilla is clutching a Valentine in
his claw, it's addressed to Mothra.

90 My first car was a 1988 Oldsmobile Delta 88, and the biggest, most catastrophic tragedy I faced back in those days was that its factory cassette player didn't work right. The tape would get jammed in the player and became nearly impossible to extract when it did, and the player wouldn't be able to read it. I was stuck with the radio.

I was finally able to jury-rig a setup with a knitting needle, which I jammed under the tape stuck in the player and fucked around with for half an hour or so until I positioned it juuuuuust right* and voila, the tape clicked into place. I had to drive around with a knitting needle jutting out of my tape deck and if I ever wanted to change tapes I'd have to go through the whole process all over again.

After almost a year of this I finally got a new cassette player installed. Yes, a cassette player. And I was so glad to have it.

So get off my lawn, you damn kids.

that extraterrestrials were responsible for anything in humanitys past,
or that amazing advanced ancient societies on islands disappeared
leaving only a handful of artifacts in their wake. Now, with a
supposedly fact-based network backing them up, a whole new generation of
people are falling for the same old BS. Here are 15 mysteries that just
arent so mysterious.

One common strand in many of these tales is the refusal of modern, progressive, people to believe that those primitive wierdos who lived in the long ago could actually do things that well read, literate, smart, liberals can't even imagine how to do sans paying someone with a machine and years of experience/training.

Our ancestors were people like us, no better and no worse quite contrary to liberal belief.

-He's sleeping with some blonde reporter chick (who is 30ish).-The brotherhood apparently murdered one of the family because he was working with the (FBI?) on exposing their evil practices. It was hinted that some of the family members (especially the "violent" one) belong to the group and may have okayed the hit. The (FBI?) brought in the youngest PO of the family as their new mole to prove that the brotherhood murdered his brother.I liked the rest, but it's hard to watch secret brotherhood storylines. Wish that shows would just stick to good plots without gimmicks.

141 In case you're wondering how Trump ended up at CPAC:

Gay Conservatives Bring Trump and the Party to CPAC

Having first brought controversy to the Conservative Political Action Conference, the gay conservative group GOProud has tried to smooth things over by falling back on two things gay groups of all sorts are known for: connections to celebrities and the ability to throw one hell of a party.

"You're probably familiar with some of the controversy and we really wanted to bring value to CPAC and to make this CPAC the best CPAC ever," said Jimmy LaSalvia, executive director of GOProud. Instead of just being known as a cause of conflict, the group wanted its presence to add something everyone at the conference could agree was a good thing.

So they reached out to Donald Trump with an invitation to speak at the conference -- an invitation the New York real estate magnate and television personality accepted Wednesday.

"As soon as people heard he was coming, that became the buzz," LaSalvia said, "and that was great."

"He's certainly a powerful voice on economic issues and his voice should be heard here," he added. "It's exciting."

Also exciting to many attendees was the prospect of Thursday night's GOProud party at 18th Street Lounge with Big Government publisher Andrew Breitbart, featuring '90s alt rock performer Sophie B. Hawkins. More than 500 guests are expected at the event, according to organizers.

161 My first car? 1974 Plymouth Fury with a 440. That car loved it some gas. Oddly enough it was the same as Belushi's Bluemobile (the only difference between the Dodge Monaco and Fury was the emblem) except mine was a two door.

My cousin believes that the rock should cost the same as a year's salary (or something like that).

I hope he matures before then.I've never understood the "more/bigger is better" in regards to costs of rings and dresses in relation to getting married. I would think it would be more of "what do you like?" Unfortunately, I seem to watch wedding shows a lot.. everytime they bring up the costs, I twitch.

Mine was a 10 year old 1972 Buick Skylark with an am radio only. When that gave out I had to put a boom box on the seat which took 6 C batteries. I didn't use the cassette much because it drained the batteries too quickly. I could beat anyone at a stop light though as long as the road wasn't wet because, in that car, the engine was so huge the back liked to swing around to the front. Bench seats, power steering but no power brakes. Once I hit the brakes so hard to stop that my ankle swelled up. Good times.

He also totaled my dad's 62 Pontiac convertible the same way and the only reason he still breathes is because my mom wouldn't led Dad kill him.

That kid could take up a class on jewelry making, buy the diamonds and gold himself, and spend about $2000 total for something truly one-of-a-kind that she could never get anywhere else.

Also if shes not appreciative of it, she's not worth the fucking $2 grand not to mention the 8k he was about to piss down the inflationary drain.

It makes absolutely NO SENSE why you would spend more on the engagement ring than on the fucking wedding ring.

That is equivalent to spending $16,000 for the tires on a Yugo.

321 The first car I got to drive was a '63 Plymouth Valiant with a....push button transmission, white with a red vinyl interior. Then it was on to the '65 Plymouth Valiant 3-speed on the column (both had 176 cubic inch slant 6's). The car I learned to drive as a manual, when I was 16.
Later in life, my older sister got the '63 Valiant (it was perpetually in need of a "valve job", because it burned oil), but the old thing was bullet proof. Who knew how many miles it had on it because the odometer was broken. My sister sold it in 1980 when she moved to Lexington with her husband. It may still be running now, for all I know. Still needed that valve job.
My first car I drove full time was a '67 Plymouth Fury III, 383 V-8,with a two barrel Holly carb. What a gunboat! Eventually the body, trunk (gas tank was about to fall out)rear wheel drums, just rusted away (1981, I think I turned it in at the junkyard).

Yes, a Fastback is a body style for Mustangs in the 60's. It looks sort of like a hatchback but the back glass does not lift up and it has an actual trunk. Not much of one, for true, but it is there.

w/ married men or cheated on their boyfriends and act like it's no big
deal and then bitch about how men are pigs.I had a
self-described "feminist" "friend" once who cheated on my best friend
with my roommate. She occasionally decried men as pigs, yet she
couldn't seem to stop sleeping with them...

Posted by: Kratos (Ghost of Sparta) at February 10, 2011 11:24 PM (c0A3e
I can do one better than that!My ex had a mistress who got upset that he cheated on her with ME. Thats right. His wife. Threw a public crying temper tantrum in front of thirty confused witnesses. Because he was paying too much attention to his wife in front of her and she thought she should be more important.I think a couple of his friend had told her to fuck off because she wasnt the wife too, that day...But it was at an enormous party i was hostessing.
It was a hoot later too. After a few years, we got divorced and she was further horrified to discover that he dated me for almost a year after, during time she thought she had him all to herself. Threw another temper tantrum.
A cheater cheats. I dont know why she was so surprised.

352 Interesting the way the mistress with the rules pretends to have standards and ethics. Hey, we're all adults, and no one is perfect, but if you want to participate in lying and cheating have the stones to not pretend that you give a shit about the people who are the victims of the lying and cheating.

I've known some single women who had affairs with married men and not one of them, not one, had an affair with a man who made less money than they did. And they did a lot of talking about the money spent on them. Jewelry, trips, help with living expenses. Lots more talk about the loot than love.

shy, nice guys don't have to worry on hitting on women w/ all these dating sites now, there's a reason more people are finding their wives and husbands there these days. anyone w/ the balls to hit on a woman these days tends to be despreate for sex or just doesn't know what you can use the internet for
plus w/ free porn the shy guys don't need to be despreate for sex as much lol

Too funny!

Reminds me of how, in the early days of the web, people would buy up domain names that well-known or well-connected entities might want sooner or later in hopes of cashing in when these folks came to them, hat-in-hand, to beg for the domain name. The domain name www`peta`com was owned by some jokester who used it to put his "People Eating Tasty Animals" content in the faces of libtards who were hunting for the PETA site.

407 Gushka,
I had an acquaintance years ago who was desperate to get married. However she was quite the conniver and not too subtle about it. She "dated" married men, and also did one night stands with guys she met at bars. And, yeah, she couldn't figure out why she wasn't meeting Mr. Right.

This lady was no engineer, dumber than a box of rocks. Since the one night stand guys from bars tended to not call her again, she came up with the brilliant strategy of leaving something behind in their apartment so that she would have an excuse to call or drop in. Too dumb to realize that they saw right through it.

Not so much. I had a red VW bug, with black fenders copped off another junker, and a $300 engine dropped in from yet another dud. The float used to stick so I'd have to pull over, open the hood (in the back) and beat on it with a screwdriver handle until it dropped and the damned thing would stop revving. The heater used to get warm about the time I got there, no matter how far I had to drive. And in Alaska, that's a problem.So, no, we were not all spoiled.

Friggin' tires! The worst when you're young and skint. Blew most of my savings on my first car, found out that cracked old all-seasons are shit in the snow, scrimped to find the $120+ per tire to get something decent that wouldn't have me oversteering into lampposts at the hint of frost. What a disaster.

470 I never had a car of my own until I graduated
from college. My parents allowed me to borrow their third vehicle, a
1977 Impala station wagon. Lima bean green. Got about 50 miles to a
quart of oil. My dad wouldn't let my sister drive it in case it caught
fire, but I was expendable...

I dated a doctor for about a month, and in the first couple of dates I found out she used to be a member of PETA. It's nice when info comes out early on that lets you know whether or not a potential mate is worth pursuing.
I remember her reaction when I educated her about PETA's support for ELF and their...background. It was also fun to watch her start to realize her liberal indoctrination wasn't really conducive to a successful independent medical practice.
If she had a social skillset that was a little more commensurate with her age instead of being 31 with the lifeview of a college freshman, it might have been worth sticking around to watch her transformation from useless liberal to a functioning human.

Admission. She thought he got me the trips and shiny presents-- i had a horse farm with 12 imported russian racehorses from exotic places like Kazakhstan and Tashkent. The money was all mine.the divorce ruined me financially. I got no alimony. I had to pay him for half the farm. Buy the horses i already owned from him. Buy my furniture even. I actually tried to reconcile in order to financially recoup because i am handicappped--this is all the money i will ever have, and he took a giant bit out of my ass. Had to sell all the horses.
But yeah he gave her shiny shit and takes her on trips. But i have heard thru the grapevine that when she confronted him the second time on cheating he invited her to move from Hollywood back home to care for her intensely catholic mom in the midwest. (shes a wiccan witch) So she does what he wants and she likes it or shes OUT.
I am fucked up and busted financially but im my own girl right now with a good man eating cheap food, in a house thats pretty good.

Yes, but better a shithole run by a government junta or something secular rather than a shithole run by the Muslim Brotherhood. Egypt has the largest military in the Middle East and we helped train and arm them. We don't need the Sunni version of Iran controlling a major pass in the Middle East, although it looks like that's probably going to happen.

though not a 68 Nova, still a lot of shit you can do to one nowadays.



Much later after I dropped out of college for the second time and nearly broke, I actually had a 68 Nova.....4 door, three on the tree with the straight 6. Bought it from a friend that had just picked up his third DUI, needed $ for his stay in the pokey. $500. Lasted a year before the engine went kablooie while on the way to Ozzfest. Luckily, we were able to limp it into a friend's place in Studio City, he drove us to the concert in exchange for our extra ticket. Good trade all around.

Ozzfest: 60,000 screaming miscreants with three complete sets of teeth amongst the lot.

Get the best photographer you can afford. Never understood it till after the wedding. Those photos are worth gold. My memories of the actual day are incredibly hazy, due to stress, excitement, copious amounts of booze, meet/greet 120 guests, etc etc

Get the best photographer you can afford.

My sister and I got married in a double wedding (we were going to have two weddings, but lost the hall a few months before and decided to combine them). Anyway, it was an odd wedding because my sister married into a huge, local clan, while my hubby's family was not able to get the passports required to leave the Berkshires and travel to "The South" (Maryland).

Anyhoo, we scored a photographer from the Baltimore Sun Papers, a friend of my b-i-l's family. He was great at the cameos. The only bad thing is that he kept drawing chalk outlines around us.


Oh, and I think I paid something like $200 for my dress, of course this was 26 years ago.

If I had one good idea and a person who I thought might consider it I would feel better. I spoke to a buddy from Egypt today and He figures the military is going to take over for a while and the Muslim Brotherhood isn't going to take over. Nasser was his uncle. I suppose its that Fox news hasn't had more than 15 minutes of actual news about the situation and has stretched massaged and repeated it for the last 14 days. Let me give you the cribs notes version.
1) Folks in Egypt aren't happy.
2) Muslim Brotherhood tries to glomb on to rioters efforts.
3) Riots follow for 14 days.
4) Reporter get shit slapped out of them. Who hasn't wanted to do that.
5) Mubarek says I am gone but staying a while.

Or maybe we NEED the ruin to know how to rebuild. Maybe we just got too full of ourselves and got CAUGHT being to fat and happy at the summer BBQ or something Pastoral like that. Maybe we forgot what it ment to be America and how damn important it was to be an American.

SyFy has a movie about giant flying pancakes/stingrays on. I think
they're supposed to be dragons. Soaring orchestral music does not save B
movies from being awful.

While SyFy has had plenty of stinkers, my favorite SyFy abomination has to be Raiders of the Lost City. Think of Waterworld minus Kevin Costner and The Hopper, crank up the suckitude about 1000 fold and you've got Raiders of the Lost City.

Awesome. I've done a little bit with electrics, built a few that turned out.....okay, I guess. One of them is posted up on the yahoo group. I'd done a lot of reading on the subject, and always wanted to get into building steel-string acoustics but never pulled the trigger on starting one.

I have a ukelele that's about 3/4 complete (most of my hobby projects end up 3/4 complete.... ). I really should pull everything out and finish it.

My landlord at work has a full woodshop next door, and he's been bugging me to start building guitars again, using his equipment. I'm seriously getting the urge.....

totaled it. I was pissed.

637 Former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger didn't wait long before deciding to get back into the game and has now given his agent the "green light" to start getting him acting jobs.

"Exciting news. My friends at CAA have been asking me for 7 years when they can take offers seriously. Gave them the green light today," Schwarzenegger announced via Twitter.

The former governor left his post last month amid an estimated $25 billion California budget deficit, but he had kept quiet about whether his plans included more political ambitions or a return to acting.

As governor, the 'Terminator' star did make a cameo appearance in last year's movie 'The Expendables' and that film's sequel, 'The Expendables II,' is scheduled for release in 2012.

675 Passengers did a double take on Southwest flight 896 from Sacramento to Burbank today, seeing Gov. Jerry Brown sitting among them -- and flying completely solo -- for his first official gubernatorial road trip to Los Angles Thursday.

And the Democratic governor was very much in budget-cutting mode, sitting in an everyman's seat (he didn't want to pay the $16 extra for Southwest's "business select" seating), no press aides, no entourage, no security -- not even his chief adviser, wife Anne Gust Brown.

"The people of California are good company,'' Brown told us, after spending the flight in lively conversation with Dept. of Corrections employee Tianne Rios, a juvenile justice special education supervisor who sat down a seat away.

He appeared relaxed and in a good mood, and folks on the flight smiled, whispered and stopped by to shake his hand, offer him good wishes, or get in a word.

"Now, do good,'' said one passenger.




Yes, it's Jerry and his Jesuit hair-shirt all over again, but it actually seems kinda refreshing.

713 I did notice that even the convertible Mustang had more headroom than the RX-7, but oddly less elbow room despite being a wider car.

It reminded me of the previous gen Pontiac Grand Prix - where did the room go? It's a big midsize car, and yet the cockpit felt tighter than a compact.

Have you driven a car with EPAS? You won't notice that it's any different until you select the sport mode of the ATC and the steering noticeably tightens up. The biggest complaint I have about the Camaro is that it needed some more height on the roof, or maybe less on the beltline, at any rate it needs more window. The view out the sides and back is atrocious, worse than the Mustang, which is really saying something. I think the best looking of the three American pony cars is the Challenger, and if there had been a convertible model available I would be driving one of those instead.

European cars are tuned for high horsepower and sacrifice low-end torque, American cars generally the opposite.

Not that my current daily driver is a formula one car, it's a freakin' station wagon. But it never surprised me or did anything uncertain or unbalanced. Low but predictable limits.

The RX-7 doesn't like the word limits. It's very hard to perturb but when it does it's smooth and predictable - except that one time on that very oily road... on second thought, it came back under control just fine, only backwards.

I used to go to Don Cuco's in Glendale for the real Mexican food

There's a real Mexican restaurant in the mini mall about 1/2 mile from here. Food isn't bad, but they have a live mariachi band in tight quarters. Like trying to eat next to a jet engine starting up in a hangar

It still has a solid axle rear-end. An IRS would probably solve the problem you have with it, but it adds cost, complexity and weight without really adding that much more performance. A good set of adjustable shocks would probably do almost as much for you as the IRS. The new Boss 302, btw, has adjustable Konis.

Almost nobody in the auto industry does asses well. It's like they start at the front of the car and run out of time about 80% through.

758 2011 Shelby. 550 HP, 5.4 liters.
1992 Dodge Daytona IROC R/T, 225 hp 2.2 liters. We can make such an
engine, it's just that American car manufacturers don't really go in too
much for forced induction like the Europeans do.


Posted by: GGE of the Moron Horde at February 11, 2011 01:36 AM

Or for overhead cams and multiple variable timing valves. It's just cheaper and easier to use more displacement on a pushrod. The bigger engines affect the handling though, you always have to watch for understeer on the bigger 8s

I gotta hand it to Ford putting out the same horsies on a smaller engine.

BTW, the fastest American car in the 80s? The Buick Grand National with the 3.8 turbo V-6 with 275 hp

i used to keep horses by the Huntington beach library. My parents live by there still. its great.

That
horse area/stables is a beautiful place,. A co-worker got married there
a few years ago, and it was so pretty and simple. We live about a mile
and a half east of it. We're all but in Fountain Valley. I think I
actually vote in FV.

I can see why folks like California, but I
am so over it. Been here 23 years now. Too many people. Too much
sunshine. Too many whiners and deadbeats.

I got my City Boy, and have turned him all Country...my work here is done. We leave in less than a year.

My best girl from HS on thru to now is from FV. off ellis. they are a completely decent family of eight kids wonderful mom and dad, and only one brother turned out to be a liberal douche. Must be something in the water. There are a lotta nice people down there.

I actually had horses off ellis different side of the street as the current Eq center. Grew up with one of the big trainers down there, was raised by the manager's dad, and drive by once in a while for old time's sake when i go to see the folks. I rode around where those expensive houses are when it was all hayfields and oil rigs, and several other rustic old fashioned stables with dirt and horses and horsegirls that got dirty and stuff. The current place is too clean and the kids are all bad sports. Our trainers made us play nice with each other, and do dirty chores.

Posted by: GGE of the Moron Horde at February 11, 2011 01:40 AM (7Y12r)
Ironically, they got it exactly backwards. (Almost) All race cars have IRS, but on a smooth track a live axle can be within "makes no never mind" distance of an IRS. And it doesn't need to add weight, depends on the design. As far as complexity, well, multivalve engine.
But on "real" roads IRS just plain rules. It does cost more, but not that much.Something about the weight transfer and braking on those cars was off as well, and that all comes down to suspension choices as well....
Wait, weight savings? The car weighs almost two tons, they can't tell me they chose a live axle to save weight. I loved my Stealth, but it was a pig - and it weighed less. And it was AWD.It also gripped the road like it had claws. It was a sledgehammer, the RX-7 is a scalpel.

That was the hangover from the dread days of the 70s. Make someone forget the engine was dead iron by putting stripes and sport wheels on the car.

The 82 Z-28 had all of 135 hp from a 5.0 liter engine, the same as my 89 Firebird with the V-6. They were regularly dusted by the 5.0 liter 155 hp Mustangs that were smaller. The Camaros and Firebirds were prettier though

A car you could get in the early 80s with some pretty good snot for a decent price were the Mitsubishi Starion turbos, rebadged as Dodge Conquests

I think I picked up that bit of wisdom right here on AoSHQ, so I'm happy to give back a little. Turning off the computer stops whatever mischief is going on--programs downloading and installing, information being taken away, etc. Then, turn the computer back on holding down the F8 key; you'll get a screen with a bunch of options for booting up. Pick Safe Mode with Networking, and then see what you have. In my case, fortunately, just restoring the system back to the previous checkpoint did the trick for me.

817 Turning off the computer stops whatever mischief is going on-


A good little app to prevent those surprise invasions is called CrapCleaner. use after every days intratubes adventures it will rid the residing java entry outta your temp files. Usually the file is on your computer then clicking a link will activate it. CC is free

818 Thanks, beanervt; I'll get it. I'm pretty good at not clicking on obvious junk, however. This attack came immediately upon entering the site. Most people clicking on the link reported no problems; it was just a few of us lucky ones who were hit.

819 he better be treatin you right...

Oh, he does, he treats me like a Queen. Better than I deserve.

And I swear he has some sort of Marine meter in his head, cuz he called a few minutes ago ostensibly to make sure I locked the front door ( he's out of town and I have the country habit of forgetting to lock the place up ) but I think he somehow sensed Marine in the air.

And thank you and Otis for the tips, I really appreciate them.

Spoken like a true man. Your force is very strong, indeed!

I think half the reason Thor won't take me to get my Glock is that he's afraid I'll just be lookin' for any excuse to use it. As IF!

I think I will amble off to try and sleep myself.

Night, Otis...and beanervt, you sleep sweet and stay warm!

I find 'Advanced System Care' easier and better too. Spend the $12.50 for the Pro Version... it drills down much deeper!

830 Morning Beanervt and all

Otis if you are still around just use FF and get the noscript and add block addons, plus so not load flash player. That fake virus scan does bypass your virus protection but it uses script to do it, also uses flash player on occasion. I used to get hit by that POS all the time and all it took was one time that I couldn't get to it fast enough. Since I started the above regime I haven't got a single hit and it has been over a year.

Hadn't heard of it.. I usually go on reviews of the product, cc is 2nd in category advsystemcare is 8th at least on cnet..

834 Tami, I lived out in CA from 1972 until 1977. Last place I lived was in Castro Valley.

Beanervt, that was while I was on the Enterprise. LOL, I joined the Navy to avoid the draft and 'Nam, singed up for 6 years to get a billet with an eduction plus almost everything at the time had a long waiting list except that 6 year program. Well I got the education alright and my first and second tour on there was 'Nam. But at least I was in the rear with the gear, just further in the rear with a lot more gear. Third tour was the IO with stops at Karatchi and Mombassa. We did make one stop at Hobart, Tasmania on the way back. Now that was cool.

They did send a couple of Migs out after us once though. We had to fight with the can to get to see who got to shoot them down.

And it is a nice 22.0 here right now and I am sick as a dog. Spewing out both ends so after baby sitting grand youngin today, no hooch tonight.

My wife got hit on her new laptop using FF and noscript BUT, she had gone to a site at a newspaper and one of the cartoons didn't show so she turned off noscript.

Then she came to me......waaaah.

836 On the "tax the rich" entry above does that picture of Obamma-Robin Hood bother anyone besides me? I mean Obama always bothers me but to equate Robin Hood with communism and socialism is just wrong.

In the "legend" he robbed from the "government" and gave it back to the overtaxed common man. He was the opposite of Obama and his commie minions.

All that is besides the fact that the story stretches history so much it is astounding. Everyone grows up thinking King Richard was a big hero and actually lived in England.

837 Beanervt, that was while I was on the Enterprise.


How 'bout that, Your planes probably saved our ass a few times..I was going for Marine air wing until they said I had to add 2 years service, no thnks...also said I could be a door gunner on a chopper..eh no thnks again. ended up in 81 mortars.

Posted by: beanervt at February 11, 2011 06:10 AM (5rxZi)

838 Friend of mine out there in CA that I used to party with was a door gunner. He got shot down twice. First time he said wasn't so bad; second time he said was hairy as hell.

I saw earlier that you had a little time at Pendleton. I had an uncle there in the mid 60s named Roger. He was drafted into the Marines.

Posted by: Vic at February 11, 2011 06:15 AM (M9Ie6)

839 We were in on the evac of the last people leaving "Nam during my second cruise. The absolute last person off of that roof and out was a Marine embassy guard who we brought back to the States on our ship.

840 One wonders where you can get that nifty whiskey ice making kit. Probably costs a damn fortune though.

That is pretty much the way I like to drink my bourbon, straight up over ice.

Posted by: Vic at February 11, 2011 06:21 AM (M9Ie6)

841 Door gunners were 2nd in order of jobs you really didn't want. 1st was 2nd looies who died at an alarming rate if they were to stooopid to remove their shiney bars...

Pendleton was just a orientation and advance weapons training before we left.

Posted by: beanervt at February 11, 2011 06:22 AM (5rxZi)

842 Question answered, they cost about $1,000 each and are hard to find in the U.S.

Posted by: Vic at February 11, 2011 06:24 AM (M9Ie6)

So you got to push all that expensive military hardware into the ocean to make room on the ship??

Posted by: beanervt at February 11, 2011 06:25 AM (sHazT)

844 I figured if you were not there long you would not have met him.

Posted by: Vic at February 11, 2011 06:27 AM (M9Ie6)

845 pretty much had 4 days of class field work then bugged out for 3 days off so didn't spend much base time there..

Posted by: beanervt at February 11, 2011 06:29 AM (sHazT)

846 So you got to push all that expensive military hardware into the ocean to make room on the ship??

I went up and watched them shove one of those helo's over the side and couldn't take it. Went back down.

Besides they don't like a bunch of non-flight deck gawkers up there in the catwalks. That area is actually dangerous as hell during flight ops.

Posted by: Vic at February 11, 2011 06:29 AM (M9Ie6)

847 sucks he got drafted in to the crotch (corps)..That had to wear thin on him..

Posted by: beanervt at February 11, 2011 06:31 AM (sHazT)

848 Factory installed cassette decks???? Who in the hell wants one anyway. Cassettes, especially factory made ones, were absolute shit as far as sound quality goes. 8 tracks actually sounded better.

Posted by: Vic at February 11, 2011 06:32 AM (M9Ie6)

849 sucks he got drafted in to the crotch (corps)..That had to wear thin on him..

Yeah, he wasn't too happy about it but he spent the entire time after boot camp at Pendleton.

Posted by: Vic at February 11, 2011 06:33 AM (M9Ie6)

850 don't like a bunch of non-flight deck gawkers up there in the catwalk


Ya, I was on a Landing ship with helo deck and they were all anal for just that rinky dink operation. It's only a freaking chopper we know the blades will slice ya...

We lost a guy up on the flight deck who walked into the props on a COD. The flight deck cameras caught it. They made everyone on the ship watch it for lessons learned.

Ouch...was he flight deck guy? That clip I'm sure saved many lives. Shit that vivid you tend to remember.

Posted by: beanervt at February 11, 2011 06:51 AM (swK+9)

855 I have gone through all my local papers this morning and not one, not a single damn one, has a story about the incompetent assholes in the CIA yesterday.

We need to get the old law about one company owning more than one news outlet in an area back in force. Every newspaper and TV news station in SC is currently owned by one of 3 companies AND they are ALL Demoncrap PR rags. The local news over in Florence has one company owning all the newspapers in our area and the TV station.

Posted by: Vic at February 11, 2011 06:52 AM (M9Ie6)

856 Ouch...was he flight deck guy?

Yeah, he was a brown shirt if I remember correctly. Those guys get used to working around that shit after a while and sometimes you get careless.

We almost lost a guy (Senior Chief) who walked in front of an A6 as it was spooling up and the intake sucked him in. The only reason he didn't FOD the engine was he was too fat and got stuck. They managed to shut it down quickly and pull him out.

We averaged probably 3 people killed every cruise on the flight deck or through some kind of an accident with a plane.
