    I had a friend today tell me a hilarious story from yesterday. He was coming home from a dirt ride, west of Glenwood Canyon. He soaked for a bit afterward, showered, hopped on his moto and went I70 East. Shut down for fear of flash floods. As the brooding clouds built (they were like death, I was in Eagle watching them), he's like fuck it, I'll go get a battery for my vape. Mission accomplished, black clouds coming down, he takes the smart route and decides to return to the warm cesspool where he seems to find solace. Jumps in, and his leg starts burning. Realizes his mistake, runs out of the pool, tries to suck the water out, gets a mouth full of oil. Thing still smoking.

    The vape shorted, got really really hot, he runs to the bathroom, it's smoking. He's burnt, the thing is smoking, and he's stoned out of his mind thinking the entire bath house will burn down.

    He leaves it standing up in the changing room, returns to the pool, and looses his mind.

    Black clouds and time passes, traffic starts to move. He realizes it's time to go home.

    Good times.

    Burrs on dogs. My dogs can find them anywhere. The older dog is super patient while I pull out each one individually but the puppy squirms and bites. And he is covered in them, his beard must weigh an additional 10 pounds from them.

    I can count the number of leaky batteries I've had to deal with on one hand (out of a ton of batteries in 70+ years) - how come y'all are so lucky?

    What annoys me is how some people are all for 'freedom' until freedom disagrees with their religion. So pissed about roe v wade reversal.

    Amen.
    Freedom in this country is basically the desire to chose the boot that will stomp on your neck then use double-think to fucking convince yourself there's no boot.

    When this came up recently at work I got dragged into the argument. I made one comment and one of my stupidest dipshit coworkers chimed in with "America, love it or live it, you're a foreigner, how dare you criticize us". I've only ever heard this argument from brain dead dipshits. I got annoyed. Then I went back to my office cause I was about to end up with HR.

    There was a discussion about Roe v. Wade being overturned on my company's internal discussion board, basically someone saying how can she work for a company that doesn't support women's rights? There were, of course, a few of the usual "well, if you don't like it you can leave" comments to which someone made the astute observation that every employee is required to sign a code of conduct yearly and one of the statements in that code is that everyone will work to "...build an inclusive culture in which diverse experiences and voices are heard, respected, and incorporated..." I thought that was brilliant. Telling someone "like it or leave" is pretty much the antithesis of this statement.

    You have a company message board?!

    Even the idea of a company message board sounds like an HR complaint at best, harassment lawsuits in the middle, workplace violence at worst situation.

    Just remind him about the Marquis de Lafayette--if it weren't for that Frenchman we'd be using the metric system, spelling it "colour" and have an old white lady on our money instead of dead white men. (At least we wouldn't have a duck.) Of course your "patriotic" coworker probably doesn't know who he was.

    It annoys me that the Colonies would have remained colonies without France as our Ally, yet Americans always dis France and have no awareness as to how weird it is that we are back together w the abusive boyfriend/girlfriend and threw France to the curb and give it now props. Even if they are surrender monkeys

    And how. Gonna have a full house for two months with the 23yo, 19yo, and 17yo. Fortunately they all have at least 2/3 time jobs, if not more. But the 23yo works 10 on, 4 off. My wife also started working from home part time during the pandemic, even though she rents an office literally down the street.
