toodlers get a hold of gun
If you can’t keep your firearms away from your toddlers, you don’t need to be owning any firearms. Gun ownership carries with it the responsibility to use those guns in a responsible manner, and to keep them out of the hands of those who can’t use them responsibly. Toddlers and guns don’t mix.
pelikan fountain pen noodler’s ink
I use nothing but Noodler’s in my Pelikans, without any problems. It dries fast, becomes waterproof on the page, and doesn’t bleed or feather on my current batch of Piccadilly notebooks.
private day care are expensive
Well, of course they are. How much would you charge to take care of a roomful of kids all day, provide their meals, look after their boo-boos, deal with the state regulators and inspectors, and insure yourself against liability lawsuits?
But hey, let’s do it like those enlightened Europeans, and have us all some free public day care! That will be much easier on the family budget, and all will be…hey, half my paycheck’s eaten up by taxes, and what’s this “21% VAT” item on my store receipts? And why is my gas eight bucks a freakin’ gallon all of a sudden?
your “first million words” of writing
Maybe it doesn’t quite take a million words of shit before you produce something worth selling, but the vast majority of newly published authors didn’t sell the very first novel they ever wrote. It takes practice to get good at something, and most established writers have a few trunk novels, apprentice pieces that won’t ever see the inside of a Borders or B&N.
1911 fatal design flaw
The 1911 has a few design elements that are less than optimal, like the staked-on plunger tube, or the barrel bushing setup. However, when you’re talking about a pistol design that’s looking at its 100th birthday next year while still enjoying unbroken popularity, I don’t think you can claim any fatal design flaws. Old Slabsides has served in WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and a bunch of other conflicts with distinction, and 1911s still make up 30% of the handgun shelf real estate in any given gunshop. I think it’s safe to say that the 1911 is a successful design.
ipad double click flash
The iPad doesn’t do Flash. According to The Steve, the iPad will never do Flash. Incidentally, if there’s anything that will break Flash’s current dominance in the streaming online video field, it’s the fact that the iThings don’t support it. Look for more and more sites to switch to HTML4 instead in the future.
yokie dog are dum
Yes, that’s the unedited search term straight from the log. I’ll just let it sit there in all its glory, and let you watch the thick, viscous irony dripping off it all morning.

home internet use company laptop porn
One last time: if you have a job that entitles you to a company laptop, you probably make enough money to buy a $250 netbook or iPod touch to use as your personal porn surfing station. In this economy, it’s a bit of a turn-off to the rest of the family when you come home without a paycheck all of a sudden because you couldn’t curb your addiction to Bored and Tired Forty-Year-Olds Dressed Up Like Schoolgirls. Also, “got fired for violating the Internet use policy” is a great big millstone tied to your employment history, especially in a market where it takes an MCSE or MBA just to wait tables at Friendly’s.
That’s today’s take, friends and neighbors. Tune in again next week, when I snatch the best search terms out of the tank with my bare hands, and then fillet them for you with a dull butter knife while wearing a pair of welding gloves.
