Let me first start off for well wishes to our own Lethal Leprechaun. Seems the Great Green One is actually a bit greener than usual. He believes the liquid Schwartz he drank the other day wasn’t meant to be taken internally and has been abed for the last several days. So Lethal, my buddy, this is for you:
Now, before everyone starts sending him personal emails and get well wishes, tying up his PC and more importantly, his time, I want you all to understand that he is WAY behind in his school work and is going to have to play hell itself to get caught back up. Sending comments to the blog here is a good way to let him know you care and are worried about him, that way he can peruse them at his leisure.
The only exception to that is if any of you fine ladies out there have some personal pictures you think might cheer him up, but don’t want to share with the whole class, then I think sending them to him at his personal email (if you have it) or the corporate email address might be the way to go.
(Oh, there it is!) (Any of you out there who’d like to repeat this picture for him, be sure to send it in!)
Okay, moving on.
I gotta say, I’m a little confused. Last Week’s Poll was one of the best ones yet…as well as the issue itself getting a crap load of first day hits. We had 343 people view the blog last Saturday and yet of those only 40 or so voted in the poll. About 1 in 10.
Now, the reason that’s confusing to me is, it’s right there! It’s not like you have to go back and hit stars (we got 17 of those on the first day) or make a comment (we even got a couple of those on the first day), but you are actually reading the poll and passing right by it. All you had to do was click one and move on. And if you didn’t like the choices that were there, there was even a place to pick “other” and write your own choice in, which several people did.
I guess I just don’t understand why someone WOULDN’T vote in the poll…is it ignorance or apathy? I don’t know and I don’t care. I just don’t understand.
Anyone want to take a guess?
And for this week’s Poll….. PLEASE Participate. And I am, by NO MEANS implying that if you haven’t served there is anything wrong or against you. This poll is at the request of one of our readers and I think it’s a good one.
We’ve had 2 more donations and I want to thank Howard Z and Allen for their kindness. Let’s welcome them down to the front. Thanks guys!
I’ve had several very nice comments from my last issue and my experience with the refueling and the cockpit ride. Yes, it was an awful lot of fun. And I hope that I’ll have another chance someday. If so, you guys will know and I’ll get more pictures.
So now, we have all the other stuff out of the way, it’s now time to laugh!
Do you use Emoji a lot? Only in text messages or throughout your on line life? Hit the comments and let me know.
Thanks to Ginny for this one. It’s one of my favorite jokes of all time.
During a lesson on colors and tastes, a teacher brought some Lifesavers in for her young class. As the children were tasting them and comparing the colors they all found out the usual
Red = Cherry
Purple = Grape
Yellow = Lemon
Green = LIme
And so on.
The teacher then passed out some honey flavored candies and asked the children to determine what flavor the light-brown little circles were.
None of the children could figure it out, so the teacher decided to give them a hint. “It’s something that your mother might call your father.” she said
One little precocious girl spit her Lifesaver candy out on the table top and yelled, “Oh my God! Spit them out! They’re assholes!”
Needless to say, the teacher had to leave the room.
You know, I was going to throw in some cute or sarcastic comment at this point, like I do sometimes following a picture, but I realized that if I did, I was going to piss off at least half of our readership no matter which side of the … um … question … yeah, question, I came down on. So, let’s all just get a quick laugh out of the picture and move on, shall we?
With Tuesday’s election putting control of the house and the senate into the hands of the republicans, a scientist was sent to the Whitehouse on Wednesday night with a very special new machine. He told the president that with this machine, he could actually get a snap shot of what a person was dreaming about in their sleep, even if that person didn’t remember the dream themselves when they awoke. The scientist said that the scientific community was very interested to test this machine out on the country’s president to see where his subconscious, the part of the brain that takes control during sleep and has much more of an effect on our lives than most people realize, would be leading them over the next two years.
The president agreed, but said that he would make the decision if the picture revealed any secret or classified information then he would not allow the scientific community access to that picture.
Well, as it turned out, the president wanted to keep the picture and hide it away. But, since it revealed his fears and not any classified information, before he could declare a presidential directive banning the picture, the savvy scientists got it published first.
And here now, for the first time, is a picture of what the president dreams about at night…
Ten things you probably DIDN’T know about the internet
You are probably using the Internet on a day to day basis, at work as well as at home. With this in mind – how much do you know about the Internet? Regardless if you know much or nothing at all are we quite sure that you won’t know the following facts. Here are 10 fun and totally useless facts that you probably did not know about the Internet:
1. The phrase World Wide Web was coined by Tim Berners-Lee in 1990.
2. The first ever bough domain name was Symbolics.com – not much to look at today we might add.
3. The most expensive domain name ever is Sex.com that got sold for about $11 million – the type in traffic alone apparently makes it worth its price.
4. In 2008 were there 215 million households with online access in the U.S. which corresponds to 71.4% of the U.S population.
5. Iceland is the country with the most Internet users per capita: 86% of the population.
6. There are still around 18 countries in the world that do not have any Internet connection.
7. Google has about 3000 employees all over the world and they go under the name “Googlers”. The Google headquarters is called the Googleplex. Brainwashing, anyone?
8. The Martini was the most popular cocktail to search for on Google in 2008.
9. Each month the average Internet surfer visits 59 domains, views 1050 web pages and spends 25 hours doing all of this.
10. “Google” has been searched on Google.com 2.7 billion times. Go figure
Today’s picture is one of my personal assistants who is displaying my clan tattoo. All my loyal people decided on their own to adopt this special marking to show their love and devotion. Plus, it’s a pretty cool tat!
Think about it.
And staying with the Ebola theme…
We’ve actually had some meetings with the local health care community and emergency responders and this is more of a fear than you might imagine.
Damn straight! Reminds me of living in the barracks when I was a single G.I.
Freudian Slip? Or just a secret desire?
Sometimes you find really strange things down in the lower dungeons of DL&LL Electronic Media Headquarters.
Another item to add to my “To Do” List!
The times they are a-changing. You know, as the parent of a young teenager, I LIKE the fact that my daughter has a cell phone. I can check where she is without her ever knowing I checked by the use of find my phone and other applications. Plus, I have instant contact with her. When I was a kid, our parents didn’t HAVE to know where the kids were or what they were doing. Now-a-days, it’s not the same kind of a safe world and it’s nice to know that modern technology is helping out.
I could postulate that this is one of Lethal’s Ninja Kitties, but you NEVER SEE them!
Another trick I won’t be teaching my dog.
And we’re STILL under a continuing resolution because the government can’t get their collective heads out of their collective asses!
This is just wrong on SO MANY levels!!!!!
Definitely a “guy thing”!
Don’t women know that ALL men can multitask? Well, don’t they? Are you even listening to me?
