Out of the Blue

Happy International Women's Day! I celebrated by allowing MrsBlue to sleep in while I shoveled snow. I would have left it for later, but the contractors were due bright and early, and I needed to clear a path for them. It seems like we got somewhere near the promised foot of snow, but it was all compacted down into a few inches that was quite heavy. But it came up well, and I managed to survive the experience with my back intact and my heart still ticking, so I'm making a note here, huge success.

Hey Blue, at least your home repairs and renovations aren't being handled by the current presidential administration...

Hardly. More legitimate question, how do you function with only half a brain?

Ad hominem attacks? Really? I've never once personally insulted you, but this is how I'm treated back? Welcome to my (very short) ignore list.

There's a fool-proof way to tell if something a conservative/right-wing/Republican said is true or not. If they call it "fake news", you can be sure it's the solid truth.

Yeah, there have been a lot of interesting discoveries about other planets in our solar system in the last couple of years. They'll be studying the information collected by Horizon on Pluto for years to come from what I understand.

Why isn't she shoveling it? Seeing as chicks are so equal and everything. Only women I see shoveling snow around here are the ones without a man and that isn't often. They usually just pay for a snow service removal...performed by men. Same for mowing lawns, yardwork, etc. I keep hearing about "equality" but I so rarely actually see it in action when it comes to the female of the species doing the work that men usually do. Yet I do continually hear nagging how men never seem to do any work. It's so very odd, isn't it? It's almost like it's just another liberal myth that women do all the work while men apparently just sit around all day drinking and scratching their sacks.

I love when that corporate bullshit marketing backfires like that. You'd think they'd have learned by now to just leave that sort of shit alone. Especially for a company that exists solely by exploiting workers and consumers.

Savvy marketers often bundle complementary products together and make us offers so compelling we cannot refuse them.

Can't? How strange I regularly refuse them all the time. I have no debt. I'm buying a new car this year - cash - after 10 years of saving. I could get myself a nice luxury car if I wanted to go into debt, but I don't. No one is forced to buy things they don't need. If you're a slave to your desires than that's your problem to deal with.

Good to see that Professor making good use of his time. Wry

Dumpster Fire: (noun, US informal): See McDonalds advertising.

Good to see Florida doing something right for once. Wish the rest of us would follow suit.

Cool they found that message in a bottle. I wonder if they celebrated by listening to The Police afterward.

Mumps. Always loved that word. It'd be a cool nickname. 'Yo Mumps, s'up brah?'
