Oh hell yeah. That felt good. That’s the jam right there.
I’m feeling a link dump. You feeling it too?
Some good news from across the pond:
ALCOHOL TO CARRY ‘SHITFACED’ WARNING
Bottles and cans of alcohol are to carry labels warning consumers they could end up shitfaced.
Many people are still ignorant of the effects of drinking an absolutely enormous amount of whisky. The move comes as figures reveal a massive 1.3% of the UK population are unable to handle a night on the sauce.
Fucking Brits. Bunch’a queers.
What? My father was born there? Fuck! What does that make me?
Don’t answer that. I’d rather go through life not knowing.
Subject: Quote of the week
“It’s lack of pussy that fucks countries up. Lack of pussy is the root-fucking-cause of all global instability. If more hajjis were getting quality pussy, there’d be no reason for us to come over here and fuck them up like this, because a nut-busting hajji is a happy hajji…. If you took the Republican Guard and comped their asses in Vegas for a weekend, no fucking war…. If Saddam invested more in the pussy infrastructure of Iraq than he did on his gay-ass army, then this country would be no more fucked up than, say, Mexico.”

The man may be on to something.
Regarding Gnome’s post of July 26th, Mob Of Bicyclists Injure Motorist In Seattle, it seems the initial media response was one of: Bad Cyclist – No Donut.
Or, my personnel favorite: When Massholes Attack!
But, instead it appears now, in the light of day, the driver nearly killed someone.
Imagine that: The man driving a car ran a cyclist, and his bike, over.
And what got trotted out was something entirely different:
…a man and a woman in a Subaru station wagon tried to pull out of a parking spot. But some of the bicyclists blocked them, sat on the car and began banging on the vehicle. Words were exchanged between the male driver and the bicyclists.
The driver feared being assaulted and backed up, but bumped a biker and enraged the group. In response, some of the bikers smashed the windshield and rear window. He tried to drive away but hit another bicyclist.
We all got fooled because we thought we could rely on the multitude of seemingly reputable news websites parroting the same line. When you read much the same thing at the website for such a paper as the Seattle Times and that of some local network, in this case, kirotv, you start believing what they’re telling you.
Not everyone out there did. On the 26th, Erica Barnett wrote:
Having read numerous emails from eyewitnesses who say the driver in the incident deliberately drove into a crowd of cyclists with his Subaru, however, I have a few questions for the Seattle media and police.
Why, if the driver assaulted several cyclists with his car, is he being treated as the victim?
Why is hitting cyclists with intent to harm them—or “nudging” them, or throwing things at them, or forcing them off the road—not considered assault with a deadly weapon?
Why does SPD and the media consider harm to property—the Subaru, whose tires were slashed and whose windows were broken—a far worse crime than running over and potentially killing a defenseless person with a 2,000-pound machine?
Why, when cyclists pay for local roads just like drivers do, do some drivers assume they have more right to the road than cyclists do—indeed, that cyclists have no right to the road at all?
Why do newspapers and TV stations always take the cops at their word—and assume that people they can’t identify with, like greasy-haired cyclists protesting car culture, must be lying?
Good questions. No good answers.
Erica had more up for you reading pleasure in a Critical Mass Roundup
…it was too early this weekend to say whether the incident might change the way the Seattle Police Department handles future Critical Mass rides, which are held on the last Fridays of each month.
You had better believe this is going to change the way the police department handle future critical mass rides. And it’s going to be in more places than just Seattle.
Get ready for permit enforcement, folks. It is coming to a town near you.
Subject: Redneck Tank Top
This was taken in front of the Gardendale, Alabama , Walmart while she was going to the Flea market.
Look at it closely.
Now I ask you…
Who sits and looks at a pair of men’s briefs and says hmmmm… I can make a nice summer top from these!! On the other hand…$6 for a three pack is a good price!!
When I think of a girls wearing men’s underwear, I think back to those many (many) U of A campus bi-sects back when I rode road bikes a whole hell of a lot. The look of the day was a small t-shirt and a pair of men’s boxer shorts w/ flip-flops.
Trust me, it was bangin’.
I’m Voting Republican
As good a list of reasons as anything else I’ve heard lately.
And I’ve heard a lot. Trust me.
I’ll leave you with this one. My man need a miracle or some shit.
Subject: Stuff in your mailbox
SSWC is coming up. I still need help with an entry if you know the right person to grovel to.
Plus, I need a lift down PCH, no one will come get me.
Good luck with that. All of it.by
