chinese mustard burnt out light bulbs and dead batteries live forever

chinese mustard being all inclusive of those little rectangular plastic sauce packets of any and all styles that we get free from chinese take out restaurants. soy sauce, mustard, duck sauce of course.

or, as we the students of the subject call them,
the BIG THREE.

you can tell a lot about a person by how they treat their chinese mustard. that they keep don’t throw out or actually consume that is.

if you hack, i hack, they hack, we hackem back, hackem back, wayyy back… unthawing the cold war… thwack #hack #coldwar

a-hack
So, we’re pissed at Russia for hacking our computers, which I suppose we should be, I mean, no question about it. They’re the bad guys. Us being the good guys in turn would then give us the right to hack their computers, of course. In fact, I think we should be pissed if we are NOT hacking their computers, even if the Russians did NOT hack our computers, which we know they did, so we’re justified in any case.

But, to what level do we let the pissing match to rise though? Mere unsightly stains? Puddles?  Stagnant mosquito breeding ground pools near our schools and residential neighborhoods? Flood level bejeezus? Forced evacuations?

I mean, tampering with email not addressed to yourself is morally on the level of opening someone else’s snail mail, or should be, right? Sensitive stuff in both, right? Gotta punish ’em for that, right? But, what about what WE learn from hacking THEIR email, THEIR files? THEIR sensitive info? CIA guy probably gets a raise for that, or at least a bonus, or a pat n the back attaboy, or attageek, if you will.

Fact is, we’re ALL bad guys, we all sneak around and cheat and steal, and by we all I mean governments. Hell, it’s what governments do best, no?

Suicide Kills More US Soldiers Than Iraq, Afghanistan Wars

According to the US Department of Veteran Affairs, every day 22 veterans take their own lives

Suicides have killed more US soldiers than the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan combined; the current phenomenon of high suicide rates among former US soldiers is an important issue the Department of Veteran Affairs is starting to focus on, as the country marked Veterans Day on Wednesday.

According to the US Department of Veteran Affairs, every day 22 veterans take their own lives.

The statistics, however, don’t show the whole picture which is even grimmer since the suicide rate is higher for veterans aged 18-29. In other words, the suicide rate among post 9/11 war veterans has skyrocketed.

One of the leading causes of suicide among war veterans is the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). That’s probably why the suicide rate among veterans is 50 percent higher than those of civilians.

“When there are flashbacks or nightmares there is really no control over it. You try to, but there really isn’t. It’s a complete loss of control,” Iraqi War veteran Robert Kingsley said.

As US troops began withdrawing from Iraq and Afghanistan, the suicide rate among ex-soldiers began to climb, reaching 18 people a day in 2010, the Department of Veteran Affairs reported.

The numbers are staggering — when members of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) were asked to talk about suicide, it was revealed that 40 percent of them knew someone who had died of suicide and 31 percent said they had contemplated taking their own lives since joining the military.

leisure wears me out

People ask me how I like retirement. So far, I tell ’em, it’s phenomenal. If it’s a nice day and I feel good, I go fishing. Between the sh** weather and my health, I fish more than I ever have in my life, plus, I don’t go broke. The rest of the time, I lie about how many fish I catch. Can you patent a lifestyle? I could get back to being a millionaire again. #fishforever#whothehellisbillpurkins #retirement #yesladiesicookandiamavailable

Popcorn thoughts

So is it silly to make one kernel of popcorn in the microwave? And if not, why would you need a bag?

For that matter, you could pop maybe just 10 kernels, no? They would not be hard to find or gather up.

My question is, at how many kernels would this become tedious and or impractical?

100? Yeah.

2? No.

10? Okay.

How about 11?

You?
