I ran myself dry

Literally.  Sweat had stopped coming out.  Made it home, with a few judicious stops at water fountains where I knew they existed, and then drank water.  Lots of it.

I'm doing much better, but my body is certainly letting me know not to do that again.

Cracking me up

These new Gatorade commercials with Payton Manning...

And Cam Newton, who I don't really like all that much but he's funny here.

Putting two and two together

So, in case you haven't heard yet, there's a serious problem with musloid men raping and sexually abusing women and children over in Rotherham, England.  Over 1,400 female teens and children were abused by "Asian" men (in England, Asian stands for Muslim, Pakistani in this particular case).  But what was worse was that the people who were supposed to help these children did nothing for fear of being labeled "racist".

Head exploding yet?  No?  It gets better.

The Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council (some of the the same people who looked the other way while musloids were raping children) removed three foster kids from the home of a family due to their political affiliation, which was their membership in the Ukip (United Kingdom Independence Party).  The Ukip is kind of like the British version of our Tea Party.  Look up Nigel Farage on YouTube to check out his speeches at the EU.  Curmudgeonly and Skeptical has a list of their Party platform.  In any case, the Rotherham Council removed the children because they claimed that the family opposed "multiculturalism".

I want you to think about that for a moment.

And then let's all sit back and taken in the concept that three children were taken away from perfectly good foster parents because they parents supposedly opposed "multiculturalism", yet while at the same time the very people in charge who removed those kids were allowing the rape of children to go on unopposed for fear of seeming "racist".

So....  allegedly opposing "multiculturalism"?  BAD.
But...  actually raping children?  GOOD (as long as you have the right skin color and are of the proper "religion".

Ladies and Gentlemen, this is how a culture commits suicide.

If George Bush built a "truth" database...

The howls from the Left would be deafening.  But when the Marxist Messiah does it?


It's almost as if all of their protestations during the Bush years were all a sham, y'know?

I need to take a break...

I have electronic crap either breaking down or malfunctioning all around me right now.  I don't know why, and I don't know how.  All I know is I seem to be surrounded by some sort of death cloud that makes all things electronic go on the fritz.  Even my Kindle.


So France Dissolved their Government

How many times is this now for France?  Five?  Six?  Not counting all the times that their government was dissolved for them by the Germans.

And amazingly, every left-wing shibboleth was tried in France.  They got more socialist.  They spent more of other people's money.  And yet....  failure.

But that won't stop the Left in America from hurling us down the same path.

To the retarded braying jackass on the bike path

Maybe if you had one scintilla of awareness of what was going on around you, you wouldn't have swerved right into my lane of travel, causing me to have to jump a curb and blow my rear tire.  Since I couldn't then follow you to beat some sense into your ass, rest assured that I'm going to be looking for you every day from now on, and when I find you, I will fucking make sure you remember exactly who I am, and why I beat you into a pulp.

You fucking jackass.

Things I watch to make me laugh

Epic freak-out of a kid who's mom just deleted his World of Warcraft account.

Dude is going through some DTs right there.

Added a new link

Under the "Be a Man" sidebar.  Pipes and Cigars.  The shop is the same folks who run Cigars International as far as I can tell, but on the pipe smoking side of things.  If you're a pipe smoker, go check them out.  And if you're a cigarette smoker, dump the coffin nails and pick up a pipe.  Everyone around you will thank you.

Corncob pipes

Are actually one hell of a smoke.

I've been trending more towards smoking my pipes, especially with the Ragin' Mrs. in the vehicle with me.  She much prefers the aroma of a pipe than my cigars, so I try to make her happy when I can.  While I love my briars and my meerschaums, I've recently picked up two corncob pipes and I've been using them as a knock-around pipe for my backpacks or on long trips.  Any trip where there's a risk of damage or loss to my good pipes, I take a corncob pipe.  Hell, they're under $10, so if I lose one or destroy one, I can just order another without crying about it.

And they're not bad at all.  The trick is to get one with a thick bowl, such as this, this or this.  Get a good, mild tobacco blend stuffed in there, light 'er up and you're ready to go.  Now the Mrs. enjoys the car ride as much as I do.

Now I need a good pipe rack for all the pipes I've been collecting.  One for my aromatics, one for my English blends....
