We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Our morning links today reported the growing ogling crisis in the UK. Men are pigs: the government must do something. We hope this sign will contribute something useful to the discussion of the crisis, if not offer a simple solution. Why ogle, after all, if you can just stare?
We like the healthy, wholesome NSFW barmaid on the continuation page.
You're entirely correct, lonetown, and Maggie's should be thoroughly condemned for promoting unhealthy lifting techniques. In fact, given this line on Neal Boortz this morning:
" A government school student in Texas will be rewarded $15,000 for pain and mental anguish and for future mental anguish after his teacher put soap in his mouth. "
I think we should file a class action suit against Maggie's for not only the current damage being done to its readership, but for future damages, as well. I, myself, feel a back pain coming on in about two weeks from reading this article, which I think should be worth at least a couple of grand.
BTW, there was an extremely sobering article in Newsweek a while back about global cooling. An excerpt:
"There are ominous signs that the Earth’s weather patterns have begun to change dramatically and that these changes may portend a drastic decline in food production – with serious political implications for just about every nation on Earth. The drop in food output could begin quite soon, perhaps only 10 years from now."
What about Buffy's chilled titties in the keg cooler made you think of global cooling? You sure like to stuff a comment. As for and future back pain damages, most likely you'll end up with some Help-You-Blink eye drops and a court order to put your shirt on.
Lonetown:"That is disgusting and way over the line!".
Yes thoroughly disgusting! The image is seared in my brain. Her poor back! The agitated beer! I don't think I'll fully recover until Maggie's posts a shot of her standing straight and proud with the keg back down on the floor, where it belongs.
