RIP

It's kind of burying the lede to leave out that he died in the middle of a courtroom during his trial for espionage.

Yeah, I'm sure she actually filmed her scenes in the middle of the Avengers movies and didn't know/realize it was going to be used in Homecoming. Also, I read that Mark Ruffalo was so untrustworthy at secret keeping that they actually wrote and shot something like 7 different endings for Hulk and n...

The early years of the Great Food Truck Race was fun, because it was the leading edge of the truck boom and I got to see several trucks I patronized regularly appear on the show and do well. But the food truck thing seems to have run its course, out here at least. There are roughly only around 1/5 a...

Ok, I'm not positive that ALL Repbulicans would laugh but I'm president before Congress would even sniff at changing the rules. I mean to allow more than 2 terms wouldn't that be 2/3 House, 2/3 Senate and 3/4 of States? DOA Obviously your point wasn't it would happen so I agree that probably not al...

The big issue I have with First Responders thing is really twofold. We're coming up on 9/11 +20 yrs, and the legislative history of this funding is replete with feet dragging and poor decision making. So you know how there were 7 or 8 members of the subcommittee were absent? Maybe given the urge to ...

...Gwyneth Paltrow...had forgotten she was in Spiderman: Homecoming. Never wanting to skip an opportunity to goof on GP, but I'm willing to give her a pass there.

A ground nest is what caused the Ranch fire last summer in California. A rancher discovered a hornet's nest and tried to drive a metal stake into it to seal the entrance off until he could deal with it permanently. Sparks flew...the rest is history.

Solidly recommend The Chef Show on Netflix. Roy Choi was Jon Favreau's technical adviser on the film Chef (which, inexplicably, I still have not seen). The show is the two of them pairing up and going around the country and doing cooking things. (And when I say 'around the country', I mean 'Los Ange...

Our plan was to stay in LAX for 2 days before/after Australia. I think I'd be okay to do that in a single day, but not my wife and daughter.
It's not that nice of an airport to spend two days there.

Watched Bohemian Rhapsody with the fam the other day. My 13 year old loves him some classic rock, so he was really excited for it. I enjoyed it, but not surprised that a lot of it was made up for the film. Rami Malek was awesome. The Live Aid scene was basically an exact replica of the original, wh...

The Q'iac poll last week was interesting in that regard. The only D candidate where Trump's numbers were noticeably denuded was Biden. All the other candidates, DJT was at 41 or 42. Against Biden he dropped to 40. Admittedly, that isn't much, but some were seeing it as evidence of a fracturing of th...

There are dozens if not hundreds of generations of selective breeding to get a Great Dane, cos there are like 7 or 8 breeds in that cocktail. It wasn't just breeding the tallest dogs with each other. Then again, there's no need for intermediary steps here, you're just breeding for maximum size. In t...

Re the oil tanker thing

It is not so much a matter of "was it Iran or someone else". It is a matter of if this escalates into conflict, there will not be the slightest whiff of international legitimacy in the action. Trump, Bibi, MBS..... there's a coalition for ya.

I think this goes to show how geopolitically isolated Trump has made the US. Even if you buy the evidence, no one wants to play our reindeer games outside regional DJT allies like MBS and Bibi.

The trailer seemed super campy. Like a John Waters movie, but not as overtly challenging to the senses.

The 5th only applies in a setting of which you were charged with a crime.
Is that right? The whole 'plead the 5th' thing requires charging? It doesn't apply where criminal charges may arise after the fact based on your statements?

I've unloaded nearly an entire can of Raid on one of them, and it just seemed to agitate the thing.

That was sort of how my first encounter with a...
