Earth reaches its 2022 perihelion!

Despite it being Winter in the Northern Hemisphere and colder than Hell lately, Earth passed through its closest point to the Sun. I always thought this coincided with the Winter Solstice back in December but that is when our planet’s … Continue reading

A solid piece on how America is heading toward Fascism

Jason Stanley’s piece in today’s Guardian will fall on deaf ears much like Bob Garfield’s two-part podcast about the American Right’s long game of 40 years to topple democracy. We know these two will be dismissed right away by George Will and … Continue reading

Current Exercise Streak ends at 23

I know that doesn’t sound like a very impressive number but given how lazy, fat and apathetic I got during the Pandemic. What about the bike you bought last year? It tends to work out on weekends more often. I … Continue reading

Happy Caturday December 2021!

I guess with the Great Resignation, Jiffy Lube, Mr. Good Wrench, etc., have had to look into hiring cats with the workload. As shown here, it is not working out given all the spontaneous naps our feline friends are prone … Continue reading

Side effects: haggis breath, unintelligible speech

If you we do not achieve herd immunity with a vaccine on this one, we’ll end up sounding like Groundskeeper Willie, or worse, the unedited version of the Trainspotting characters!

How fitting, we’re seeing A Christmas Carol today

This will be my first time at the Zach Theatre. I’ve lived here for 27 years and never bothered. I’ve been to plays and operas at UT, just not the local theater group. Jennifer has seen this production before so … Continue reading

Got my booster shot against CV-19 today

Not sure if the booster is making me tired, the long weekend or the aftermath of Daylight Savings Time ending. Just glad I had it done as Winter will kick in. Can’t get a flu shot though for about four … Continue reading

As you can see, the Media fell for it again

In Austin, our local grocery store chain, HEB, is offering a free turkey if you buy a ham so as always, the GOP is full of shit as they let the world burn doing nothing until the off-year election cycle.

First cold of the Winter season, ugh!

I want to be perfectly clear, it isn’t Covid-19! I started coming down with cold or flu-like symptoms around Wednesday as the temperature dropped and then I felt the sweats. I know there are all the naysayers about the vaccine, … Continue reading

Aaron Rodgers should be fined to the maximum

Of course Chicago fans are having a field day, as they should, and there’s no limit to their schadenfreude because their team will miss the playoffs yet again. Many can dish it out but they sure can’t take it when … Continue reading

Take that Science!

Nobody illustrates the craziness of people as well as Monty Python’s Fly Circus in how these people could also be against the vaccine for polio, whooping cough and small pox. Three things which are deadlier than COVID-19 and should you survive … Continue reading

Before McRib returns, here’s Biden’s Nothing Burger

As you can see, it was downsized into a Manchin Unhappy Meal. Again, I have NO REGRETS voting for Sanders. Anyone who thinks you can negotiate with Amerika’s domestic terrorists while being undermined by their “moderate” sympathizers, is a fucking … Continue reading

At least there’s one honest undertaker

There’s a saying recently attributed to the NeoCon and MAGAt movement, never miss the chance to a turn a crisis into an opportunity. Yup. And every time, they make the situation a hundred times worse. Over 3000 killed in 9/11 … Continue reading

A counter flag for the Freedumb Movement

I figure the snake is coiled up to wrangle down those swollen nuts we heard the R&B singer alleged in Trinidad.

Texas Snitch Site still on the move, rejected by Nazis!

To be fair to Epik, the host declined to help the Snitch Site not over the abortion issue but its collection of personal information and we know the White Power/Neo-Nazi movement requires secrecy. Remember, every identified asshole from Charlottesville lost … Continue reading
