An explanation of Net Neutrality anyone can understand.

Published by under Assholes,Fun things!

America's dumbest Senator distinguished himself the other day by tweeting this:


Thanks a lot dickhead! By tweeting this, you proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that you know nothing about health care OR Net Neutrality. Any one who is buying the latest Fox News BS about the issue-clearly does not understand the issue.

So, as a Public Service-the American Porn Industry came to the rescue. Explaining Net Neutrality in a way even Ted Cruz can understand.

Can’t believe I missed it.

Yesterday was Women's Equality Day. And I totally forgot about it. I'm so depressed. wink


After all, there are some hard facts of life:


And while you are at it-get me a beer:


Ok Honey?

Just kill me now…..

Published by under Fun things!

Once again I have to apologize for the lack of posting. The S.O. and I went on a marvelous trip to Austria. And now we are back.

And work got even more suckier in the interval.

So, pix to follow-and now I ask for appeals to save me from flag induced O-5 ambition. Trust me pal-you are still getting passed over.

In the meantime-help me think about this:

What might have been…….

Published by under Fun things!

Newcastle Ale explores the possibilities:


They may be on to something-celebrate alternate history on July 3, then celebrate real history on July 4th. Two parties, two hangovers-and a lot better cuss words.

"Newcastle is a very British beer, and needless to say, it doesn't sell that well on July 4. So why not establish it as the beer you drink on July 3?" says Charles van Es, senior director of marketing for Heineken USA portfolio brands. "Unlike the Redcoats in the 18th century, we're picking our battles a little more wisely. By celebrating Independence Eve, we're taking liberties with America's liberty to create a new drinking occasion and ensuring freedom on July 4 tastes sweeter than ever."

Van Es adds: "Like Cinco de Mayo or Thanksgiving Wednesday, Independence Eve is just another excuse to enjoy good times with good friends, but now with a new purpose. On July 3, we're lifting a Newcastle to our British heritage and the American freedom we all appreciate."

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

And once again-I am not ending it staggering out of an Irish Pub on Nathan Road. Sigh.

But I did buy a 4 pack of Guinness on the way home today-which I am drinking now.

And thinking about Irish Women, Irish Japanese mixture to be precise:


Half-Irish , Half Japanese!

And if I had been staggering out of a pub, it might have been after hearing this:



Probably would not have heard Whiskey in the Jar done this way though:



Drink Up!

This is so funny, I laughed so hard I cried.

If you have ever had to answer a tasker with the word, "cyber" in it, you will realize why:

And its Boxing Day

And since the weather sucks here-I am off to Portugal for a long weekend before New Years. There to stay in a historic hotel and see historic sights. As well I should be.

Till I get back-Have a great weekend!

Happy Festivus Day!

Published by under Fun things!

The feats of strength will be undertaken this evening with my assorted collection of Pilsners.

The airing of the grievances will continue to be a year around event at this blog.

The Festivus Pole-well we need to find someone nice to dance on it.


S.O. has to work so I will enjoy the Festivus dinner by myself. WHOO-HOO!

And when she comes home I will try to demand a Festivus Miracle, in various contortionist positions. ( That indeed would be a miracle of the first order.)

And 2 days later comes Christmas!

I am a Star Wars fan. But not this much of one.

Idle Hands are the Devil's works shop.

Where is a time machine when you need one?

Wanted: Delorian with working (must be accurate within 1-2 years) flux-capacitor. Must be time travel ready. Immediately. Can a brother get a ride back to the '80s???

I'ts clear to me now-, re-reading Barbarians at the Gate and watching this movie-I missed some of the best part of the 80's. Of course I spent a lot of those years at sea, and in the air-and stumbling down more than a few European (and African, Sri Lankan, and Australian) streets. But still-there is something that always stirs me when I hear this song:

This is where I spent all my time in port.  And Singapore. or Bangkok, or Manila. :-)

When I saw this I just had to get a picture of it.

Something everyone can agree on.

Published by under Fun things!

Namely, the underlying purpose of the internet.


I did this in an anime a few years back-but I thought this was pretty funny.
