Out of the Blue

If you're noticing the early start, it's because I have an adventure, as I and a couple of the mutants are part of a group playing paintball today. As much as I've always wanted to play, this is my fist try. For the longest time living in New York City was the problem, as access to the sport is limited there, and somehow I never readjusted my outlook on how practical this would be since moving to the suburbs. Unfortunately today appears to be the coldest of the surrounding couple of weeks, but I still full plan on enjoying myself thoroughly, even if I end up doing nothing more than eating icy cold paint.

Lindsey Lohan, so smart she doesn't realize that she won't be eligible for multiple reasons, including felony convictions and age.
Well, she is talking about 2020, but yeah even for the Jan 20, 2021 inauguration she would be just shy -- born July 2 1986 according to Wikipedia.

I have to admit though, I didn't know there was a law preventing federal elected service for felons. Assuming you're correct, it's not terribly surprising, I just didn't have actual knowledge of an existing law.

There is no law I am aware of, but good luck getting anybody to back you with that felony on your record.

Then again, this is America. Hillary is basically running on an "elect the first woman president" platform, so what the fuck do I know.

Being one of the only ones running that actually seems sane is a rather nice boon for her as well. She mostly just has to wait out the GOP crowd and see what's left standing over there, and then beat them to death with their own words during the primary.

On the other hand, that's a strategy so simple that only a Democrat could fuck it up.

If you think Hillary sounds sane...well, you are beyond my ability to convince you of anything.

Seems like that's more attributable to your abilities than anything about me Unless you're aware of some particularly crazy shit she's said or done, I think the reams of crazy coming from the other folks has her soundly beat in that department.

Well, it that case.. come on. People elected Arnold Schwarzenegger governor of California and Jesse Ventura governor of Minnesota. Why not Lindsay Lohan as president.

Fist try eh Blue? Usually most start with finger's then work up to a fist, but hey, after your Colonoscopy, the sky's the limit right?

But seriously, with as thin as you are (and probably paper thin after your doctor's visit) wear baggy clothes. And remember to bring a meat shield (friend) that you can easily sway into taking point when rushing the enemy and follow right behind them!

To be honest, however, I'm not sure she could do much worse than any of the previous presidents these past 30 years.

You wear baggy clothing in paintball not to protect oneself, but to reduce paint breakage on hits. A form of light cheating.

Good times, it's all about how much of a man do you like to portray yourself as. A mans man wears just a wife-beater shirt and thin pants or shorts and plays very offensively, mobile and deadly, but above all else will make sure they have the biggest welt on their body afterwards to tell how he survived it. All the way down to the opposite end which is the boy from Christmas Story, so much protection that you don't feel a thing because you don't want any pain, but also can't move, this person will also have fogged up masks and look like a maggot moving around the course.

Yeah, only ever paintballed once and it was a hoot.
