  1. New slogan for the rabid fundamentalists: Extremism in the pursuit of idiocy is no vice; moderation in the pursuit of stupidity is no virtue. Ah haint know golldurn minkey. rde Coming soon, new fast food franchises for Emerging Urban Professionals! GORILLA TWIST<TM> & MONKEY FREEZE<TM> Yes, you can! You certainly can have a Steel Reserve and Pork Rind smoothie. We'll supersize it for you.
  2. Yes, yes. It has breadth and depth. It is robust! Replete it is, with the Winds of Shit circling around in the background, occasionally pushing a hot, sick breeze at us. Truly, a work of Art<tm>. In tribute to It (and screwball attorneys everywhere), I have changed my avatar to "Inherit the Wind." Get your suspenders, start snappin' 'em! The Smith Monkey Trial. rde Heh.
  3. Sorry I didn't edit that post myself, boys. I was out of town for two days and I just walked into it. rde
  4. Hey, I noticed a recent absence of these weenie bitches. Do y'all think they will invoke, further? I'm figurin' they got at least one or two more in 'em. rde workin' on his ciphers, and figurin'.
  5. Jokes are all about the delivery. So, one good way to start is to imagine yourself to be a ventriloquist dummy. If you think on it, these ventriloquist dummies are the ones that work harder than anyone in show business. Well, then there are lawyers. Oh, sure, I could do Lawyer Jokes. But the thing is, they are so (morbidly, or perhaps as sociopaths) funny by themselves, at least generally. All you have to do is watch them operate in the wild. Sure, most myths are based in fact. Lawyers, overall, on the other hand, tend to display some kind of near propetual motion that defies physics.
  6. Idea: Challenge J**** *. O*********, attorney from Indiana, to a best of 3 rounds traditional naked Greco Roman Wrestling match.
  7. Earlier today on Atlantis 2, I suggested to Mr. J**** *. O********* that he discuss his allegations against me on this thread. Jim didn't say Yes or No explicitly; instead he replied: This sounds like a big NO! to me. Ghs I guess the wrinkled pussy jokes didn't fly all that well over there. Oh well. Yeah, that's me, the happily married misogynist. Douche factor= 96.875% with a bullet. rde Wah, wah, wah. P.S. Ghs, the personal story is knocking me out. I got right up close on this, but not nearly at that point. I had Italians chasing me for awhile, but that was years ago. But from the
  8. Taoism is a state of consciousness. It means "way." This might seem somewhat lightweight on the surface, but it is not. A very beautiful way to become familiar with it is to simply read the Tao Te Ching (Lao Tzu). I believe this is the core experience. There are many, but here is a clean link to read it (I got 1 from there): http://academic.brooklyn.cuny.edu/core9/phalsall/texts/taote-v3.html I have read it so many times over the years. Actually, I am glad you have brought this up because otherwise I would not have re-visited it. It is always great to read. Don't mind the hyenas if the
  9. It's not in the precise context, but I figure its intermission time and this is close enough to convey the feeling: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PfmB-8onoMo Then I was thinking (which is almost always a bad thing) about George's tale of motel woe, and for that matter, my own. In my case, the girl in question happens to be the sister of one of the guys that wrote and sang on this oldie but goodie. Detect the slight irony, and mild spelling difference. Hey, I can't always hit bulls-eyes but I always get in the circle: rde We need a popcorn machine.
  10. He never returned his RSVP. And I was going to have the really good cucumber sandwiches and the freshest oolong. Cucumber sandwiches and oolong!!! Aaah - we must tell it to Tony aka WhyNot, he loves that! Let's have the tea party anyway since the tea party we wanted to throw at Riggenbach's somehow fell flat. http://www.objectivi...49 Swing party at Wendy's house. rde Dousing self with Hai Karate in hopes of some Wild Action<tm>
  11. Brant, Of course she did. She also read PARC. And she liked it. Valliant, with all his warped scholarship and reasoning, merits her praise. Michael True. Ain't that something?
  12. I doubt if Wendy wrote TRW for money. She wrote it to boost her reputation, at my expense. In going after the latter instead of the former, I am depriving Wendy of something far more important to her than money. Ghs And that's what I like, because it is just. How fucked up is it to peel someone else's work for the purpose of bolstering how you feel about yourself? Head=bad wiring. And then to send in unqualified, minor demons for doing the triage. This is the kind of girl you run from. I dated a chick like that once, and before you knew it I was living in a very sleazy, dangerous motel
  13. One way or another, these anonymous lunkheads do their retarded doings. What drives them, a man might ask? Misplaced loyalty? Pussy (ack) ? The point is, something, someone, is driving them. Him. What the fucq ever. I think it is pretty sad when you are so pushed into defending someone's honour<tm> that you are willing to display Anonymous Multiple Personality Web Disorder (AMPWD) during your struggle. The Mitchell blast was so savage, but at the same time, so weak. It reeks of erectile dysfunction. See, if you are a Man, you have it Going On. If you have it Going On, then yo
  14. According to one source, Prometheus Books has an estimated annual revenue of $10 to $20 million. George stated previously (#120868) that one of their attorneys acknowledged the apparent plagiarism years ago but they did nothing about it. If they have continued to publish subsequent editions since that time, the case would seem to be fairly strong. Yeah, but revenue isn't the same thing as net income, you can easily have $10M in revenue, but still have negative capital and no assets. I wonder what the statute of limitations is on GHS's case, should he have a change of heart following another
  15. Indeed. Well, my sport is hockey, which is pretty much a blabfest the whole season long. I wasn't talking about tears from the combatants however, but misogyny among the spectators/ I'm equal opportunity, as far as assholes go.
  16. Richard's behavior will hurt him a lot more than it will hurt me. And unless we get a credible denial by Brad stating that neither he nor Wendy had anything to do with Richard's appearances on OL, then their repuatation, such as it was, will be shot to hell. An innocent person does not stoop to this kind of lowlife tactic. Rather it has "I'm guilty as hell" written all over it. What gets me is how moronic all this is. Assuming that Brendy is behind all this, this tactic will do nothing more than make them look like creeps. As junkies go, Richard was a pretty stable guy when I knew him during t
  17. Did you happen to read my brief comment in this post? http://www.objectivi...ndpost&p=137488 Ghs Yeah, sure did. I'm not missing a beat on this one, due to the high asshole-factor, I s'pose. rde Wondering if Netflix has "The Prime of Miss Jean Brody" around

  19. Yup. It's your house, Maestro. Always has been, always will be. You will know what to do and when to do so. Now, on the other, sporting side of things, there's the ol' "enough rope to hang themself" action. There is something to be said, in that respect, about encouraging them a bit. If you look at it, you now see at least two faces; one attempting logic, the other outraged damnation. That is a sign of a very sick human, or, at the least, a misguided one. No direct questions answered. No credibility. Just hit-and-run, and not even done with competence (if there is such a thing as th
  20. Yeah, that's what I do. Advice: just be sure to do a "courtesy flush" when you are done--it tends to leave quite the mess. rde
  21. That sounds like participation to me. I was in the throes of it and you know how that goes. But the math took over. Her tongue can't be . ..what? FUCK! BAD DOGGIE! rde Never goes cross-species
  22. Note the initials R.M. Same as Richard Martin. Richard is smart enough to conceal his identity, but dumb enough to leave clues. Ghs You just burn in Hell, George, you violent, psychotic killing machine. Go to Heaven for the climate, Hell for the company. Mark Twain This guy can't fight his way out of a fuckin' pay toilet. Invisible, stupid, coward. It's either that or he is really chasing some wrinkled pussy. Sorry about that one, George--but remember, you were around her when she was prime. rde
  23. Darlene and I have family members across the street from us, and they have a Bichon that looks just like Jazz, named Alex. He is a very funny fellow, that one. We just got finished taking care of him while they were at Daytona Beach. Such happy doggies. I have a long history of doggy-owning. The last few years, I had two miniature pinschers. The first one was killed in the street in front of me, she died in my arms. Then I got a red one, and he came to FL with me. When I came here I had one checked bag, the dog in a carrier, and 3 books. The red minipin lives with my best friend/broth
  24. I just heard from Robert, at length. Things are going very well. Also, he mentioned three things-- 1. Thanks to MSK for the warm words (he doesn't have your email address but he said to convey). 2. The DRM controls thing--elective by the author. He has none on his. So that's that. 3. To say thanks to Reidy! The Kindle reader works just fine. Only caveat is on Macs--if you are below OS 10.5, no workie. I know that only because I happen to also have an older Mac that I just adore and will never part with. rde Enjoying the book.
