Trump responds to "golden showers" Russian report with hysterical ALLCAPS tweet

Czechs’ capacity for making “angry-mob-resistant-windows” did not keep up with their other technological accomplishments.

One day I'll be confident enough to tell you what I did on election night.. let's just say i did some minority outreach and I couldn't walk right for a couple of days

They do make pretty good guns too. I'm not a big supporter of everyone having guns, and I think the US would do well to try and specifically reduce the number of handguns available on the market, but that doesn't negate the fact that they're often interesting machines.

If I had my way, the ideal legal framework in the USA is that people couldn't own firearms that have detachable magazines. That's the force multiplier that turns self-defense and sporting uses into massacre devices, if you look at the stats.

I prefer to think of them as "one-cylinder motors".

It's not an original observation, but here's what's true no matter what comes of this.

Everyone, including us haters, is saying it all might be bogus.

Nobody, including his fans, is saying they'd put it past him.

Technically, that only applies to fully automatic firearms. But most semi-auto versions of fully automatic weapons have a trigger disconnect added in somewhere so that they don't keep firing if the trigger's held down.

It's funny, the big artillery is much simpler than something like a 1911 pistol.

A character name likely inspired by the football player (and later Supreme Court Justice) Byron "Whizzer" White.

"Dr Adder" is always apposite, but especially the encounter with the prostitute who has undergone surgical mods to enlarge her bladder, for the better satisfaction of her specialised clientele.

Sounds like Trump is the PeeTer Principle incarnate:
The Peter principle is a special case of a ubiquitous observation: Anything that works will be used in progressively more challenging applications until it fails.

this could be a false friend translation thing. Skat is a popular card game in Germany (I don't know if Hitler was into scat or Skat, though)


#113

Well, you can always go to Lake Winnepeesaukee.

Yeah, yeah, I know, real mature of me. Fnord.

And I have this one stuck in my head: Frank Zappa: Bobby Brown Goes Down


#115

I recall reading about that when I was younger, but I later read that it was a bit of wartime propaganda put out by the Allies to discredit Hitler with Germans.


#116

They said Hitler had a limp dick (e.g. the whistle while you work song) too but he actually might have had one ball.. not to cast aspersions but maybe a registry wouldn't be a bad idea? A registry of the one-balled. MAGA


#117

it's on account of his failing health. since he accused clinton of ill health, we know he himself must be having problems.


#118

I don't actually care what kind of consensual sexual behaviour Trump has engaged in. So fucking what, more or less, we all do strange things in bed if we can come away with it.

I do have issues with Trump (to say the least) but we might want to focus on the political stuff.


#119

Totally stealing this...

Random Morning Thought: it should have a "bro" on the end of it. "Don't Pee On Me, Bro"

My reaction this morning as I wallowed in #goldenshowergate and didn't get any of my writing done:

I think it is the part where he allegedly had them piss on the hotel bed in which the Obamas had slept that would raise questions regarding his attitude.
