#1189: Harry Reid (D) doesn't mind if gas is $5 per gallon.

Apparently, anyway, since he and Nancy Pelosi (D, Fucktardland) are both trying to keep a lid on exploitation of domestic oil resources.

I'm sure rich Democrats don't have a problem at all with gas being $5 per gallon, particularly when they're rich limosine liberals.

August 1 is the 20th anniversary of Rush Limbaugh's national show. Awesome. Just awesome.

Roswell was real, government coverup, blah blah blah, etcetera. Bonus points for the alien autopsy photo, though it looks kind of "photoshoppy" to me.

You think it's bad when there's a gapers' block on your way to work? 29 miles of river closed--that's pretty incredible.

I like how the article dutifully informs us that "styrene is used to make plastics and rubber". Styrene is a plastic, doofus.

Why did communists love communism? Because they weren't subject to it, that's why.

Man, what a crappy night it was. 2400 piece truck, pulls around 1000, and I was in the back room all night once the unload was done. My feet hurt. To make matters worse, I was tired when I left for work. Argh.

Neal Boortz describes three success stories from the socialized medical systems of England and Canada. Oh, wait, sorry, not "success", but "horror". Well, to Harry Reid it would be a "success" since government gets to decide who lives and who dies.

This article should be next to the definition of "schadenfreude" in the dictionary. NYT's second quarter profit is 82% lower than that of the second quarter of 2007.

As I have been doing for several weeks, now, before the truck unload got started I put a six-pack of Pepsi into the freezer. The freezer runs about -10°F, and after a typical truck is finished the Pepsi tends to be in the "slush" stage.

I did so last night, and the Pepsi was in there for over 2 hours. I bought the 6-pack and put it into my lunch back in the fridge in the breakroom. When I got home this morning there was still slush floating in the bottles. Hoody hoo.

It tastes very good when it is literally ice cold.

In 1991 I happened to be at a $1 store, and bought a couple of cassettes of music based entirely on how silly the band names were. One was "Trip Shakespeare"; the other was "Gunbunnies". The latter was just as bad as I'd expected it to be, but I turned out to like the former, so I later got that title on CD.

Anyway, there's a song on that album ("Across the Universe") called "The Slacks", and it's a little ballad about three guys trying to seduce a woman, and the man who is successful is wearing a pair of magic pants. (They then argue about who was actually wearing the pants.)

The chorus is simple:
I wore the pants
I said "relax"
We did a dance
They call "the Slacks"
Some time ago, when I was living in Iowa--1998, I think it was--I realized that you could make up a chorus about any piece of clothing (or anything, really) that would fit that music.

Today I came up with one, and nearly laughed myself silly:
Some daiquiris
Are made in blenders
We did a dance
Called "The Suspenders"
Yes I need a life. Damn it.
