Growing older - a theory on why it's better than the alternative.

 Getting old sucks - no doubt about it, but it beats the shit outta bein' dead... 

I will go to my grave never having learned

Don't blink - Life goes faster than you think
 
"Don't blink, just like that you're six years old
And you take a nap
And you wake up and you're twenty-five
And your high school sweetheart becomes your wife..."

I'm sure they were, at first, thrilled to be leaving the European Theater, but the majority of them had enlisted 'for the duration', so this 'good news' actually only meant that they were going to the Pacific to fight the Japs.

We all know all polls are bullshit.

Former President Donald Trump would be a shoo-in over President Joe Biden or Vice President Kamala Harris if the next election were held now, with 1 in 5 Democrats saying they would vote for Trump today, according to a Rasmussen Reports survey of 1,000 likely U.S. voters released Thursday.
Trump in head-to-head matchups with Biden or Harris would win by double-digit margins; 51-41 percent over Biden and 52-39 percent over Harris.

Yesterday, as I was leaving the poker room...

So me and an older guy (probably 80 maybe) both get knocked out of yesterday's tournament at the same time and we're talking about the hand we both got knocked out in as we're walking out the door. 
A car pulls in to the parking lot and the guy says to me: "This is my wife picking me up. Make like you weren't talking to me when she pulls up - just wave goodbye or something. I've had her convinced that I'm deaf for the last three years." 

I have a new idol. The man is a genius.

Perspective is everything - don't forget that.

Cassini died four years ago this week. Before it crashed itself onto the surface of Saturn it took one last picture of its home plant. That little tiny dot in the photo is us. Earth. Perspective is everything.

Where do these pussified fuckers come from? NYU.

Current James Bond director Cary Fukunaga has claimed in an interview that the iconic 007 played by Sean Connery was “basically” a rapist. The NYU grad noted the questionable sex scenes in the classic 1960s’ movies and told The Hollywood Reporter how he would help update the famous British spy for the #MeToo era.
“Is it Thunderball or Goldfinger where, like, basically Sean Connery’s character rapes a woman?” Fukunaga asked, referring to two of the six Bond movies that starred Connery, who died last October. “She’s like ‘No, no, no,’ and he’s like, ‘Yes, yes, yes,'” Fukunaga, 44, said.“That wouldn’t fly today,” he told the trade mag.

I hasten to add, that if he'da grown up in my neighborhood with a last name like that, he'da been in three fights a day. Juss' sayin'...

“Florida’s revised rule about school quarantines - as laid out by Gov. DeSantis -  is very simple: Students who are sick have to stay home until they recover. Students who are NOT sick, but had a positive contact, do not have to quarantine and miss out on essential in-person learning experiences,” the governor’s press secretary Christina Pushaw explained on Thursday following Dr. Joseph Ladapo, the Sunshine State’s new surgeon general, signing the new protocols.

1937 Cadillac V16 Hartmann Cabriolet
This Cadillac is probably the most extreme cabriolet ever built. Wealthy playboy Phillipe Barraud personally commissioned this design through local Cadillac dealer in Lausanne, Switzerland on one of the finest chassis that America had on offer.
Phillipe chose the Cadillac V16 for its monstrous 452 cu engine and robust chassis that could support any coachwork that adorned it. Cadillac shipped a bare chassis, one of only two that year, around the world to Switzerland and there it was bodied in Lausanne by Willy Hartmann. Barraud wanted to body the chassis in his own home town so he could personally suprvise the work.
The final result was stunning. Stretching 22 feet in length Hartmann created a sweeping cabriolet that was almost too dubious to drive on regular roads. The design was accented in chrome and definitely mimicked the French masters Figoni et Falaschi which pioneered the trend from a painting by Geo Ham. It was orginally painted off-white with and orange body stripe and fender skirts.

  1. If the election of Biden truly was on the level, which most thinking humans know is not the case, then Americans are some of the most moronic people ever to exist on this planet, or any other, for that matter....

  3. The Tango is absolutely the most fun you can have with a clothed woman in your arms. Think 2-way standing lap dance. It’s not hard to learn, just hard to do very well.

We hold these truths to be self evident. Or do we?

Sometimes even the fact that you're seeing something doesn't mean you  actually have to start believing...      Even I don't buy...
