A second cigar review

So, back when CigarCity.com sent me some cigars to review, they sent me two of the Rocky Patel Vintage 1992.  In my first review of this cigar, I noted a strong pepper flavor, and the fact that it died out probably an inch from the nub before I was ready to stub it out.  After smoking the first cigar, I decided to let the second cigar sit in my humidor and get happy for a while.  I figured that maybe the trip had made the smoke perhaps a bit harsh, and I didn't get the full flavor and experience of the cigar.

I lit the second cigar up last night.  My original review still holds true:  Sweet tobacco flavor, with spice and pepper building up.  But after allowing it to rest in a humidor for a bit, the sweetness of the tobacco holds constant throughout the smoke, even with the building pepper notes.  And this stick burned all the way down to my finger-tips.  I only stubbed it out once it was no longer safe to hold.

For you non-cigar smokers out there, or for the newer cigar folks, I have to point out that Anthony from CigarCity.com did everything he could to get these cigars to me in good condition.  They came in the mail faster than any other cigar shops I've dealt with, and they had a humidification pack in the bag with the cigars to make sure they didn't dry out.  But I live in the desert.  Yes, LA is a desert, and it affects anything that you mail here.  These conditions affect a cigar in transit.  Giving it a rest in a humidor improved the smoke considerably, and moved it up in my rankings.  It is still a stronger cigar, especially towards the end.

I just wanted out point that out - my first review wasn't exactly a glowing review, but allowing the cigar to sit for a while improved it considerably.  This is a cigar I would actively look for in a shop's humidor.

Aroma

With all the rain that's fallen, there's new scents no matter where you go.

In my front yard, it's the smell of dry earth sucking up the water, and plants growing as fast as they can with the rain.

On the running path it's a clean scent of vegetation.

Around the trails in the park, it's the smell of all the piss and shit from the hobos and drug addicts all getting re-hydrated at once.

Seriously folks, I cannot for one moment think of why anyone would ever want to live in this city of their own choice.  I really can't.  What's so desirable here?  The pollution?  The greedy, selfish assholes who populate the place?  The illegal aliens?  The earthquakes?

Rain! Lightning! Thunder!

In Los Angeles!

Yes, I'm sitting outside smoking right now.  Why do you ask?

If you are Catholic

Then you need to distance yourself from this heretic who calls himself the Pope.

Find a traditional Latin Mass (which Francis is opposed to, by the way).  There's a Latin Mass directory here.  This is the Mass that the Catholic church offered up until the schism known as "Vatican Two", which removed the spirituality from the Mass and turned it into nothing but performance art, created by people who hated the Church.

Satan couldn't defeat the church from the outside, so he attacked it from the inside.  Vatican Two is the result.  And if you are Catholic and you think I'm nuts for saying that, let me ask you something personal:

How often do you pray the Rosary?

When did you last read the Catechism of the church?

Do you know where the Tabernacle of your church is?  Do you understand why it's considered important?

Trust me on this.  As a man raised up under the Second Vatican council who then discovered the Latin Mass (aka the Tridentine Rite), the Vatican Two mass bears little resemblance to what it's supposed to be, and even worse, the people going to the mass don't even understand the wheres and whys of what the Mass is supposed to be, and why it's so important.

The largest religious denomination in America is ex-Catholics.  And Vatican Two is a huge reason for that.  If you'd like to go to a Catholic Mass where people actually believe in God, find Latin Mass.

And whatever you do, don't be fooled by Pope Frank.  He's the end result of decades of anti-Catholic teaching, culminating in the enemy of the Church being placed in charge of the Church.  Kind of like the anti-American communist Obama being voted in as President of the country he hates, loathes, and wishes to destroy.

Computer is having issues

It's old, it's cranky (like me!), and it might finally be seeing the end of it's days.

Then again, maybe it's just the new version of Safari that was "upgraded" a few days ago.

You morons

You absolute fucking morons....



Here's what happened, even though nobody wants to say it, and I'll bet a paycheck on this - the bear and her cubs were in the middle of the bridge, going one way or another, and a bunch of brain-dead, fucktard, city-slicker, "oh hey look, Jesus freaks!", know-nothing fucking dipshits decided that they were going to get "close enough" to get a picture.

Do you know what you do when you see a mother bear with cubs?  You leave.  You leave quickly.  You do NOT go near it to get a photo.  You are dealing with an apex predator who sees you either as lunch or a threat.  Either way, it's not going to go well for you when five-hundred pounds of pissed off teeth and claws rips you in half.

Just leave them alone, you city-dwelling fucktards.  And leave your money at the gate.


R.S. McCain has been researching the crazy

That is modern feminism.  And when I say "The Crazy", I'm talking absolute, bug-fucking, coo-coo for Cocoa Puffs, batshit insane.

To translate this to plain English, if you are a normal (feminine) woman who feels normal (heterosexual) attraction toward normal (masculine) men, this means that you have been brainwashed by society into accepting your own oppression under the system of male supremacy. Feminists believe that heterosexuality is imposed on women by the patriarchy — women are “coerced into heterosexuality,” as Professor Marilyn Frye explained — and feminine behavior is simply the performance of inferiority. Gender “glamorizes the subordinate status of females” and creates an artificial appearance of male-female difference in order “to clearly mark the subordinate class [i.e., females] from the privileged class [i.e., males].”Thus, there are no natural differences between male and female, according to feminist theory, only the oppressive hierarchy of “gender” by which society enforces male supremacy.

And I guarantee that as Marxists, all of these people are also huge into Glow-bull Worming, which means that they call anyone who doesn't buy into the Church of Pope Prius the 1st (algore) a "science denier".

There's a reason I refuse to associate with modern "feminists".  I cannot tolerate this kind of stupidity, or for that matter, the sheer hatred of one half of humanity that feminism espouses.

Pictures, or not

I'd show you all a photo of me after the Mud Run, but you wouldn't be able to tell who I was in any case.

I was scrubbing mud out of my eyebrows by the time it was over.
