dish satellite problems connection speed
High latency (700+ milliseconds at a minimum), slower than advertised download speeds, and signal loss in bad weather are common problems. There’s a reason why satellite Internet is only bought by people whose only alternative is the good old 56k phone line.
toddlers playing with guns
Really not a good idea. Come on, do you really need to search the Internet to help you figure out that guns and toddlers are not a good mix? Does the total absence of inside-the-diaper holsters or publications like Tactical Playground not clue you in? (“Swing Set Bullies–Your .45-caliber Solution!”)
roger waters american citizen
Roger Waters is a British citizen, which is why he really doesn’t have any business using his U.S. concerts for Obama vote prodding. I mean, can you imagine the outrage if some American singer held a bunch of concerts in the UK, and actively prodded his audience to vote for a certain party in the UK elections?
warning about navy boot camp
Navy boot camp is part of the process that turns you from a civilian into a U.S. Navy sailor. The United States Navy is part of the military, which goes out and fights wars. When you enlist in the military, you may actually be expected to participate in the fighting. Fighting sometimes leads to injury and/or death, and is generally unpleasant.
(I’m just pointing that out for the benefit of those people who enlist, and who are then shocked to find out that military service is not just standing around in uniforms and collecting money for college.)
bad stream of consciousness worst novels
This might be literary heresy, but I’m not terrifically impressed with Ulysses and Catcher in the Rye.
“well of ascension” “free ebook”
The Well of Ascension is the second book of Brandon Sanderson’s “Mistborn” trilogy. The first one is available as a free ebook, but not the second and third, for much the same reason as your neighborhood independent pharmaceutical merchant offering the first hit for free.
You, sir or madam, win this week’s Weird Fetish Award.
i want royalties for the bible
The problem with that is the multitude of other authors you’d have to wrestle for royalties, seeing how the whole thing was written by a lot of different people. Also, legally speaking, the Bible is Public Domain now, and has been for a long time. (The writer in me does, however, get indecently excited about the magnitude of the potential bi-annual royalty checks for a book that’s been on the bestseller lists since Gutenberg cranked out the first print copy.)
sword fighting tutorial katana -youtube
You cannot learn physical fighting skills of any variety just by watching a video or reading a book. Anyone who claims otherwise has something to sell (probably a video or a book.)
absinthe legalized in new hampshire
Well, the absinthe in our liquor cabinet was purchased at a NH state liquor store, so I guess it’s safe to say that it’s legal to buy here in the Live Free Or Die state.
drawbacks of popular vote?
If you win the popular vote, and still lose the General Election by count of Electoral College votes, your supporters will whine their heads off for the next four years and annoy the living shit out of those of us who actually understand how the system works.
clean my kidneys please
Well, send them to me in a cooler, include a check for a few hundred bucks, and I’ll chuck ’em into the wash on cold/cold with my socks. Don’t forget to include a return address. (Dialysis not included. 9% NH prepared food service tax applies.)
