Out of the Blue

Our neighbors are dog-sitting for some friends of theirs by looking after a beautiful Akita named Max. Our own pooches were quite worked up by a dog in the neighboring yard, so we decided to let them all get together for a good old-fashioned ass-sniffing. That was the plan, at least, as what happened was a bit of a dust-up between Max and Hudson the wonder dog. Huddy has developed more of an Airedaley approach to life as she's matured, demonstrating a skepticism about the motives of strange dogs, and I think that was only cemented by the incident a few months back where she got bitten. Anyway, it was loud and ugly, but with both dogs on leashes, no one was hurt, so we just called off the socializing. I'm afraid at this point we're going to have to start assuming our little angel is going to dislike any given strange dog until proven otherwise on a case-by-case basis.

That Chicken and Egg game is impossible! That chicken is an insanely fast egg-dropper!

Well, it isn't random. There is an obvious pattern. Just get in the zone danielson.

Japan Space Probe Nears Asteroid

Now I've seen this often enough that I have to ask:

Is there a grammatic reason why I see sentences with Japan here at Blue's when, to me, it seems it should have been Japanese?

Just being curious

It's just like saying "A U.S. Space Probe". Japan is the country of origin. That's all.

Hah, best review there...

I've never read it but I can tell from the picture on the cover that this book is not for me. I don't need to read it - I know - I just make judgements based on my pre-existing prejudices - isn't that the conservative motto.

Oh please don't sue me Jack.

Lol...if Jack is correct in one point is that too many people Freedom of Speech as an excuse to be retarded on Amazon, or any other related site. Other than that, I'm not so surprised he posted there, but still kind of creeps me out he behaves as he does. I'm sure this kind of action would get most lawyers disbanded by the bar.

Whether you bought it to burn it or read it, the money would still go into his pocket and encourage him.

And check out Thompson's entry in the review section of his own book where he basically threatens to sue Amazon (what a shocker):

I guess of all my uncles, I liked Uncle Caveman the best. We called him Uncle Caveman because he lived in a cave, and because sometimes he'd eat one of us. Later on, we found out he was a bear.

Wow he went so far as to put his picture on the front cover. I honestly had never seen a picture of him before. Never really cared to do a google image search or whatever.
