Another couple fingers please. Scott, that made me smile too. Auto-replace for sewer system, I'm guessing. I LOVE that feeling of bringing a story in for a landing as you approach the ending.
Nice treat for my Dad and me. My daughter is making us dinner, AND made us dessert - an "improbably blue" cake her phrasing, not mine, though I was made quite proud by her wordplay. Happy Father's Day, all. I'll take three fingers of something strong. Good luck on the views, Jim, and on the house, Milik and Simmie.
What did you think of Trump sitting with Kim Jong-un? Ik ben bereid om de hele tijd Nederlands te spreken. Is it just me, or does it appear to others that Jeff and Jim are getting into a contest to determine who has the longest one, sig line, that is. Now who else out there needs a drink? I don't wanna break your screen reader, but I will do what needs to be done.
Just a taste of the mayhem my sig line can wield: Double Post Syndrome Posted: I could be right. I could be wrong. One story removed, one story added, garnering a nice blue thumb. Pancakes himself, the Incredible Hulk of Smut, the greenest dude at the bar.
It looks like Sir Larry was added to the list. They changed the list of winners? I didn't know that was ever done. Somebody leave the site or something between the announcement and now? It's pretty chill in here, suiting a zen fellow such as yourself. Pixie, very alluring pix you posted here, meant for the inconquerable and unquenchable Curvy I think, but appreciated by all. As the NYT said, some countries cashed in their share of the post cold war "peace dividend" a little too eagerly.
They went to a 36 hour work week with 5 weeks paid vacation and single payer government provided healthcare in part because they could hide under the USA's defense umbrella. Take a look at the relative force structures. In just about every category: If Putin gave the word, Russia would roll to the Atlantic coast in 6 to 8 weeks tops. I agree with you for two posts in a row, Seax. I didn't think Obama deserved the Nobel prize. He didn't win it because he was black, exactly, he won it because he was the first black American elected President.
Which is a deeply worthy accomplishment, if not quite enouugh to earn him the Nobel prize in my opinion. My true fear is of what I quoted you about, that the US is realignning with an entire different series of allies than the ones formed after WW2.
We seem to be cozying up to the strongmen and dictators rather than those who value democracy. I fear Putin is behind all of this, and that a war, with the US aligned with an entirely new set of allies is possible.
I'm not saying it's likely. I'm saying it scares me.
