Quote of the Day

Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos are both trying to make a business of space. I have said many times: It takes the same amount of energy to fly a pound to Australia from Los Angeles as it does to put that pound in orbit; airlines operate at a small multiple of fuel costs; but airlines do not push the airplane into the sea after its first flight. Both Musk and Bezos have flyable used space ships.

From Helen: I like the Sempi Fi at the end.

AN ACTUAL CRAIG’S LIST PERSONALS AD

Subject: To the Guy Who Tried to Mug Me in Downtown Savannah night before last.

I was the guy wearing the black Burberry jacket that you demanded that I hand over, shortly after you pulled the knife on me and my girlfriend, threatening our lives. You also asked for my girlfriend’s purse and earrings. I can only hope that you somehow come across this rather important message.

First I’d like to apologize for your embarrassment; I didn’t expect you to actually crap in your pants when I drew my pistol after you took my jacket.. The evening was not that cold, and I was wearing the jacket for a reason.. my girlfriend was happy that I just returned safely from my 2nd tour as a Combat Marine in Afghanistan .. She had just bought me that Kimber Custom Model 1911 .45 ACP pistol for my birthday, and we had picked up a shoulder holster for it that very evening. Obviously you agree that it is a very intimidating weapon when pointed at your head … isn’t it?!

I know it probably wasn’t fun walking back to wherever you’d come from with crap in your pants. I’m sure it was even worse walking bare-footed since I made you leave your shoes, cell phone, and wallet with me. (That prevented you from calling or running to your buddies to come help mug us again).

After I called your mother or “Momma” as you had her listed in your cell, I explained the entire episode of what you’d done. Then I went and filled up my gas tank as well as those of four other people in the gas station, — on your credit card. The guy with the big motor home took 153 gallons and was extremely grateful!

I gave your shoes to a homeless guy outside Vinnie Van Go Go’s, along with all the cash in your wallet. [That made his day!]

I then threw your wallet into the big pink “pimp mobile” that was parked at the curb ….. after I broke the windshield and side window and keyed the entire driver’s side of the car.

Earlier, I managed to get in two threatening phone calls to the DA’s office and one to the FBI, while mentioning President Trump as my possible target. The FBI guy seemed really intense and we had a nice long chat (I guess while he traced your number etc.).

In a way, perhaps I should apologize for not killing you … but I feel this type of retribution is a far more appropriate punishment for your threatened crime. I wish you well as you try to sort through some of these rather immediate pressing issues, and can only hope that you have the opportunity to reflect upon, and perhaps reconsider, the career path you’ve chosen to pursue in life.

Remember, next time you might not be so lucky. Have a good day!

Thoughtfully yours,

Semper fi,  Alex

Two more Clinton murders

A couple of deaths where “Clinton” pops up

First, the strange tale of Peter Smith, 81.

  • He was a GOP donor and opposition researcher. He was trying to locate the 30,000 emails that Hillary had “bleached” in defiance of a Congressional subpoena.
  • In May, ten days after he gave an interview to The Wall Street Journal where he explained his strategy of reaching out to hackers (five hacker groups claimed to have the Clinton emails), he was found dead in his hotel room with a plastic bag tied over his head, and a helium tank to aid the asphyxiation process.

Next and more recent, Klaus Eberwein, 50.

  • Allegedly, he shot himself in the head at a Quality Inn near Miami.
  • So, what’s the Clinton connection? Some far-out sites say that he was a critic of the Clinton Foundation’s operations in Haiti, and was set to testify specifically about Clinton Foundation wrongdoing.

All within a week of each other, this month.  From the national press?  Not a peep.   But Donald Trump jr. sat down and talked with a Russian lawyer,  Horrors!  Maybe one of the Trumps should try killing someone, see if anyone notices?

Movies that won’t play.

Been a while since I’ve posted another list of movies that are out there but that won’t be coming to the local cineplex.

Lady MacbethRural England, 1865. Katherine (Florence Pugh) is stifled by her loveless marriage to a bitter man twice her age, whose family are cold and unforgiving. When she embarks on a passionate affair with a young worker on her husband’s estate, a force is unleashed inside her, so powerful that she will stop at nothing to get what she wants.

Jagga JasoosJagga (Ranbir Kapoor) a curious and shy young boy in a quaint little town lives a happy life with his accident-prone father, Bagchi (Saswata Chatterjee). After admitting Jagga into Boarding School, his father suddenly disappears from the scene. Feeling abandoned, Jagga’s only contact with his father is a VHS tape that he receives in the mail every year on his birthday. Armed with sharp detective skills, Jagga sets out to solve the mystery of his missing parent. Along the way he finds a partner in Shruti (Katrina Kaif) an accident-prone journalist with her own international criminal case to solve. Using a few tricks he learnt from Bagchi, Jagga and Shruti embark on a mission to uncover details of his father’s mysterious life and find themselves embroiled in a worldwide smuggling racket.

Almost SunriseAlmost Sunrise tells the inspiring story of two young men, Tom Voss and Anthony Anderson, who, in an attempt to put their haunting Iraq combat experiences behind them, embark on an extraordinary journey – a 2,700 mile trek on foot across America.

The Wrong LightThe Wrong Light tells the riveting story of a charismatic activist who leads a globally-regarded anti-trafficking NGO in Northern Thailand that provides shelter and education to young girls rescued from brothels. But as the filmmakers embed themselves at the shelter and meet the young girls and their families, discrepancies begin to emerge. As the filmmakers embark in a quest for the truth while keeping the girls safe, the heroic tale takes a shocking turn and uncovers a dark side of child advocacy behind the trafficking headlines.

Maybe some of these will show up on Netflix, maybe.  Otherwise your choices at the movies will be the third reincarnation of “Spiderman” in widescreen, 3D or iMax. Also the (fourth?, fifth?…) sequel to “Planet of the Apes”.

Actually, something still at the theater,  “Wonder Woman”.   Full disclosure, I’ve actually been to see it.  My girlfriend emailed me a suggestion that we go see it, after I picked myself up off the floor, we did.  Not bad, decent summer movie; a Fantasy, not a Science Fiction based movie.  There are a few shots that were obviously posed for the 3D effect (we didn’t go to a 3D showing).   I believe that this is the last movie leading up the ‘big’ Justice League movie coming out at Thanksgiving.  I (probably not we..?) will go to see it, if none of the stars or the studio does anything to piss me off before then.

Let me explain that last statement.  I have a lengthily list if actors, directors, and studios that I refuse to support with my movie ticket buying dollar (more like my ten-spot).  They have polictized themselves, their work or their studios.  I feel that by giving them money I am supporting the politics that I disagree (nah, hate!) with.   Anything with Johnny Depp, George Clooney (damn! I like him in “Return of the Killer Tomatoes”), Marvel Studios, Josh Whedon (that broke my heart, I’m boycotting the creator of “Firefly”),  etc…..

Jane Fonda?  Need I even list Jane Fonda?  That bitch should be in prison.  If she’s lucky.

Housewives of America, Rejoice!

CÜCK – The New Furniture Assembly Service From IKEA

A Message from Our CEO:

Hallå, IKEA customers and shareholders —

IKEA furniture assembly is the 4th most-cited reason for divorce in the United States. Research shows that when couples assemble IKEA furniture, the husband’s shortcomings as a man are inevitably exposed. This causes him to lash out. But is a screaming match and hurt feelings unavoidable? Instead, what if American women could substitute the clumsy impotent rage of their husbands with the knowledgeable touch of a Swedish man?

Introducing CÜCK — a new furniture assembly service from IKEA.

IKEA, Inc. has built a nationwide team of over 900 young, vigorous, and blonde Swedish men to satisfy the furniture needs of America’s wives. Whether your husband fails to construct a MALM, FJELLSE, or even a FLURG, you can rest easy knowing there’s a Swede one phone call away who can give you what you want.

Read the rest…

I knew that.

Messy desks could be a sign of genius, say researchers

Historically, geniuses were always pictured with an unkempt desk with Einstein famously pointing out that, ““If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what, then, is an empty desk a sign?”
