  1. Congratulations!!! My puppy was born on October 8th!!! I made doubly and then triply sure this was a responsible breeder. This will be a healthy dog from happy healthy parents that are treated like well loved pets by their owners. Some time around December 8th I will get to take her home. The best Christmas present I could ever ask for! One of their past litters:
  2. Surprised? Nope. Impressed? Kinda.
  3. Came across this video of an old MadTV sketch today. Best guess is it's from around 2003-06~ish But it's downright creepy.
  4. Way to go California! https://www.aol.com/article/news/2017/10/14/a-new-california-law-will-take-rescue-pets-from-shelters-to-stores/23243604/
  5. Mythcon and Humanism (Matt Dillahunty Youtube video) Very unsure of whether I should put this in the politics thread being mostly about the division causing problems in the atheist/skeptic community and what happened at Mythcon. However, what's decided me is that Matt's comments not only seem accurate and insightful but relevant to recent disagreements we're having on this board and what's causing the left in general to be in a feud with itself, and he does relate his thoughts to current politics. My thoughts: Whether you agree with him or not, I really think Matt is a class act guy, a grown up in a community sadly being overrun by children. I am an atheist and humanist. I enjoy listening to Matt and AronRa and Seth Andrews and some others. I don't go to any meet ups or conventions, I just find myself agreeing quite a bit with their take on things. So I had no idea that this Mythcon was a thing. I do know of Sargon of Akkad and seen a couple of his videos but I could never watch one all the way through. I always considered Sargon an asshat and think Matt hit it on the nose calling him a shock jock. I don't follow Sargon or Bearing or any of those guys and think they are pretty "deplorable". Loved what Matt said about taking good positions and turning them in parodies and making things more difficult. I agreed with most of what he said and felt his comments were a well needed boost of sense and sanity and I'm glad he chose to share his thoughts.
  6. See the film Dave for contingency plan. I only suggest they don't use Alec Baldwin, I don't think he'd work well with his history of outbursts and putting his foot in his mouth and being difficult to work with...um, nm.
  7. I've followed him since I first became aware of him on Last Comic Standing, I think he was in the first season, maybe the second. At one point he had lost a considerable amount of weight but in recent videos you could see he gained it all back plus more. Coming from someone who knows, food is an addiction just as bad or worse than all the others. Like so many of us, poor Ralphie couldn't shake the monkey. RIP, funny man.
  8. My mom was showing me old newspaper articles once when I was maybe 14 years old. I said to her "So did they use to print newspapers on yellow paper back then?" Yeah I'd say I'm at 50% of my posts being qualified as dumb things I said.
  9. I'm so sorry. Whatever you may think of me, if anything at all, please believe I'm being earnest here
  10. Oh but ain't that America, for you and me Ain't that America, we're something to see baby Ain't that America, home of the free, yeah Little pink houses for you and me, oh for you and me ETA: Because ineffectiveness to impotence to do anything to stop these should be preventable situations has caused frustration to sometimes overwhelm my empathy and sympathy and making me be a callus insensitive asshole.

  12. When i was a kid, before Generation X was termed, we were called the Baby Busters, yeah Generation X is way better. The Disco era was largely still the product of the Baby Boomers. Even Madonna and Michael Jackson were born in the latter end of the Baby Boomer generation. We'll still proudly take ownership of 80's music, fashion, MTV, and even Rick Astley. Just don't forget, Gen Xer's also gave you grunge. Nirvana was a generation X band, "Smells Like Teen Spirit" is the anthem of Gen X.
  13. Thank you for this information. I will take advantage of it. I donate to my local animal shelters directly every month because I feel it's a better way to make my dollars count towards actual helping than to donate to Humane Society or ASPCA in general. Makes sense it's same logic for this.
  14. I am infuriated. I am enraged. I think of doing things I would NEVER actually do, but images pop up in my mind every time I see some FUBAR situation, caused or allowed to happen, or exacerbated because of Trumpo the Clown. On Puerto Rico, I am on a serious budget here. I need to make my money count in everything I do/purchase/pay for. I don't want my money to be given to a scam at worst or even paying for too much red tape causing less aid to get to people in Puerto Rico. Any suggestions who to donate to so that money can do the most good to those who need it in Puerto Rico? Is it still the Red Cross? Is there a better place to give? I know they are desperate for diesel fuel. By the way, Mayor Cruz of San Juan I think is doing a beyond belief amazing job with what resources she has. She seems like a genuine leader, someone doing all she can do in the position she's in and I don't think anyone in her place could be more competent.
  15. For as far back as I can remember, I've wanted another Scorsese gangster movie with De Niro and Pesci. I think I'm as excited about this movie as I am any new Star Wars, Indiana Jones, or James Bond movie. Pesci is coming out of retirement for this, that is awesome, and Pacino is playing Jimmy Hoffa too! Harvey Keitel and Bobby Cannavale are in it too? Fuhgeddaboutit! There are some conflicting reports about whether this movie will be out in 2018 or 2019, IMDB says 2018 but it could be 2019. And, it looks like it's going to be released directly to Netflix for streaming. Interesting. That could be a serious sign that traditional Hollywood is in trouble like some people have been saying. First look at The Irishman
