And it's in some strange dead language that nobody can read!
"It is not I who is mad! It is I who is crazy!" -- Ren Hoek

"[... it seems most strange that... ] the Creator of Heaven and Earth resorted to the womb of a certain Jewish lady, grew there for nine months and was born as an infant, and afterwards grew up and was betrayed into the hands of his enemies who sentenced him to death and executed him, and that afterwards... he came to life and returned to his original place. The mind of a Jew, or any other person, simply cannot tolerate these assertions. If you have listened all your life to the priests who have filled your brain and the marrow of your bones with this doctrine, and it has settled into you because of that accustomed habit. [I would argue that if you were hearing these ideas for the first time, now, as a grown adult], you would never have accepted them." -- Rabbi Moses ben Nahman, defending the Talmud at the Disputation of Barcelona, July 1263.

"God is the supreme excuse for human adults to absolve themselves of any obligation to preserve natural resources for their own children during their lifetime." -- Gene Ray

I'm pretty sure it says "Drink more Ovaltine"
It's "pea-can", man.

Halloween is over without a peep, at least in my neck of the woods, Thanksgiving next.

Last year my first Christmas sighting was a few days before Thanksgiving.

Sticky thingey that holds the paper shut on my Jimmy Johns sandwich said "Merry Christmas" thus the war on Hanukkah begins.
"Try SCE to AUX."
Yeah, me and an electrified atmosphere ain't friends.

No more Christmas. It's over stayed its welcome. This year it will be replaced by Codger's Day.

Happy Codger's Day.

Don't be so grumpy! You just have to get into the spirit of the holiday…

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

I seem to recall you posted that before.

So that means it's a tradition. :)
