Black hearted son of a motherless goat!

Got a bunch of stuff done this morning.  Was going through the wiring on the bike, with the sage wisdom of P2 in my email (and he was spot on).  Got to a certain point, and the Ragin' Mrs. comes out...

"Hey Dave?  I think the swamp cooler is broken."

%$#@(*&@!!!!!!

Get the ladder, climb up to the roof, and sure as shit, the pump for the evaporative cooling system is shot.  Which, given the sheer amount of minerals in the water that form white rocks at every opportunity, shouldn't be a shock.  So let me go fix THAT now instead of the bike, because if it's too hot to sleep, it's too hot for married activities, if you know what I mean.  And I enjoy being married.

Anyways...  how's your day going?

I don't care where I am, I'm singing along

To both of these





There's more talent in that one band than in damn near every modern Grammy winner combined.  But since Chris Stapleton is the singer, he counts for about 90% of the talent in modern Grammy winners.

I've been wondering about this

In fact, I've had discussions with the Ragin' Mrs. about this.  The vaping "illness" is more from illegal drugs and crappy vape liquid, not from standard vaping devices.

According to a new report on patients in Illinois and Wisconsin who experienced severe respiratory illnesses after vaping, 83 percent admitted using black-market cannabis products. While 17 percent said they had used nicotine only, some of them may have been reluctant to admit using illegal drugs, and it's not clear that any of them were using standard e-cigarettes.

Vaping has been a thing for about a decade now.  It seems odd that suddenly there's a slew of illnesses linked to it, and not from known vape devices like Juul or any of the other e-cig companies.

Of course, the health nazis would like you to think that ALL vaping devices are evil and will kill you within a month, but sorry, the evidence on the ground shows that's just not so.

It's not clear whether any of the products in the THC-only cases were closed-system devices such as Juul, as opposed to refillable vaporizers. Nor is it clear whether the cartridges or e-liquids used in the devices were legally produced, illegal knockoffs, DIY solutions, or mystery fluids concocted by third-party suppliers.

Let's go with "Illegal devices and mystery fluids", folks.  The bottom line is that if you're a vaper, and you use legal vape devices/liquids, and don't try to get high with a mystery batch that you bought off a street corner, you're not going to come down with the illnesses that have come to the forefront of the American consciousness.

Sometimes the stupid really do take themselves out of the gene pool.

I'm for it





About the only processed carbohydrates we consume at the Ragin' Castle is whiskey.  All other carbs are either unprocessed, or as unprocessed as we can get while still keeping to recipes.  Processed foods are absent, because they are nothing more than empty calories.

Yes, it does cost a bit more.  But it's worth it.

As for adding sun:  Sunlight makes you produce Vitamin D.  Vitamin D is actually a hormone, not a vitamin, but by the time they had discovered the difference it was decided to just keep calling it vitamin D.  Vitamin D does many things:  It helps your body absorb and use calcium, and it helps with your mood.  It literally wards off depression, which is why so many folks up North need UV lights in their house during the winter time.  Get out.  Exercise.  Take Vitamin D if you live up North, and I'm not talking just Alaska.  All the states north of the Mason-Dixon line should be taking vitamin D as a daily thing.

They celebrate murder because they profit from it

The duo who exposed Planned Murder Parenthood and the sale of body parts from murdered babies is on trial again, and the testimony will turn your stomach.

The CEO of StemExpress essentially admitted in court Thursday that her biotech company supplies beating fetal hearts and intact fetal heads to medical researchers. 
She also admitted at the preliminary hearing of David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of the Center for Medical Progress that the baby’s head could be procured attached to the baby’s body or “could be torn away.”

So they will rip the head off of a baby, sell it for cash, and defend that as "reproductive rights".

These people are evil.

The commies at YouTube must be in a panic

Every time you see a video rebutting the global warming hoax, they have a little box underneath the video promoting climate change bullshit from...  Wikipedia.



So now the commies at YouTube won't allow their bullshit to be rebutted unless they get to link to a website so laughable for it's accuracy that most educators refuse to allow it as a source.

These people are hopeless.

I guess I'm still a kid at heart

The Air Force has been doing their thing lately, and every time one of those jets goes screaming overhead, I have to stop what I'm doing and look up.  It makes me smile every time.

Holy hell, I crashed

Ten hours straight in bed, waking up with a puddle of drool under my face when my bladder wouldn't allow me to sleep any more.

Lemme go check my emails here...

I feel like I got run over by a bus

But I have a day "off" tomorrow, if working like hell to catch up on all the things I couldn't get to while I was gone/working.

Here's a video about the "Jesus was copied from pagan myths!" line that atheists like to spring on you.



I will post more, later, but for right now I'm just catching up.
