  1. If y'all are into cheesy alien shit, I'm going to have to recommend Hangar 18. It's a pretty terrible movie from 1980 filmed at the then recently closed air force base in my West Texas hometown when I was about 9 yo. From what I recall Gary Collins had a fling with a local MILF during its filming which was quite the scandal back in the day. The movie is so bad, you can watch the whole thing for free on YouTube:
  2. Watched a few episodes last night and am disappoint. I haven't laughed once but did crack my first smile during the chimpstronaut one
  3. Watched The Lighthouse over the weekend. It's some dark shit that completely blew me away. Here's the trailer to check and see if you're interested:
  4. I get and respect that as a supporter of the First Amendment as well since it's, in my opinion, the most sacred and fundamental right we have. That said, free speech also has consequences. If others feel like he deserved it, that's no skin off my back. My personal policy on negging is to reserve it for intents to deceive or outright lies. Otherwise, I'll only challenge opinions and points of view that I disagree with. Yeah, I'll prop up someone who is being unfairly treated, but this guy came in to defend an unrepentant racist liar and who implicitly is denying shit happened by calling it a "narrative" as if it were some alternative reality. Please, make sure you see the overall context before supporting an asshole who just happens to generally be on your team or team adjacent. You're an actual, real human being to me, so it kind of caught me off guard. Sorry for calling you out. Thanks and much love.
  5. You’re implying a threat of violence to defend these statements: ‘Barack the Magic Negro’ "The NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it." "I think it's time to get rid of this whole National Basketball Association. Call it the TBA, the Thug Basketball Association, and stop calling them teams. Call 'em gangs." "Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson?" "The NAACP should have riot rehearsal. They should get a liquor store and practice robberies." Responding to a caller who said black people should have a greater voice on issues: "They are 12 percent of the population. Who the hell cares?" [To an African American female caller]: “Take that bone out of your nose and call me back.” Think about that for a minute and what it says about you. And @BearSchlong it’s pretty fucked up that you feel the need to prop up this asshole.
  6. Yeah. Insulting a black caller by assuming he has a bone in his nose and generally spreading hate against nonwhites ain't really my jam. In fact, it kinda pisses me off. But it's no surprise you feel the need to defend the cocksucker.
  7. Definitely an advantage, especially if pulled by horses. Really, the only defense is to lower shields and form a phalanx.
  8. I'm pretty sure you can draw a direct link between this unscientific thinking on smoking to climate change denial and now Covid skepticism. It's like he picked up the mantle of his anti-evolution predecessors and ran with it to his famed golden toilet.. Now, I will confess that I used to smoke back during Rush's 1990s heyday, because I was dumb and felt indestructible. I even picked it back up again after getting a divorce, because I was dumb and felt self-destructive. But, never for a moment, did I ever vocally express doubt that it was bad for me or think it wouldn't cause lung cancer or any other associated respiratory/cardiovascular ailments. That's just crazy talk. How many countless others though has he influenced to deny smoking is bad, pollution is killing the environment, or Covid is a hoax? It's got to be in the hundreds of thousands if not millions. And as any other white male Gen Xer Texan, I also ask myself how many of my formerly thoughtful, intelligent, and apolitical high school friends did he lead down the brain-dead ditto path to Fox News programming and today's Trumpism? Probably a lot. This motherfucker was (is) one of the biggest turds in the punch bowl who poisoned political discourse, social responsibility, and civic awareness in America during our lifetimes. So, yeah, I'm definitely not going to shed a tear when god decides to finally "Flush Rush."
  9. She actually has a quite gifted poisonous tongue. Sure, that doesn't necessarily prevent her from being ornery but she's got the gift of gab.
  10. Had to share a locker with a guy in the 6th grade who, after high school, ended up on death row for murdering his girlfriend and attempting to murder one of her friends who was pregnant at the time. It involved the slitting of throats, but it looks like his conviction may have been reduced and he is still alive. Being from a small town, I also kind of knew both victims but not very well. ETA1: I want to say he had an emergency driver's certificate and started driving to school around the 7th grade. ETA2: My dad's dad was also murdered while fishing during the Great Depression a couple of months before my dad was born, but I don't know who did it for sure in spite of my suspicions. I think both my dad and I may have been named after the murderer.
  11. What a fucking let down. Just found the thread on the first page of Lulz. I missed the January update with this horrible news.
  12. That's the Scandinavian equivalent of Terlingua minus the beer swilling goat.
  13. I've taken a little bit of a breather from Surly this past week and only now getting caught up here. Just clicked over there for the first time since Monday and read a page of that afternoon's posts. Dear lord, the intentional ignorance displayed with such arrogance is maddening. I'd like to catch up and read the 14 or so pages that follow, but I'm not sure I could handle it.
  14. Regardless, it'd be best compare Sweden to its socioeconomic and culture Notdic peers. Per Worldometers as of today (deaths per million): Sweden 384 Denmark 97 Finland 55 Norway 43 By comparison, Texas is 49. If we had the same death rate, Texas would have over 11,000 mortalities right now
  15. I'd love to hear Dirt Bike's wild theories on all of this Covid mess, but I'm too lazy to find the thread and pose that question.
