My apologies, everyone. I had no idea.
And then I remember that the trillion dollars and the lives we’ve spent in Afghanistan will likely be used to secure that country on behalf of whatever Chinese companies are able to develop whatever natural resources Afghanistan might have. Which doesn’t so much alleviate my depression as explain it.
I don’t think trolling means what you think it means.
This seems to about sum it up.
After 72 holes of golf over two days the outside of my right upper thigh is sore from pressing against the side handle of a golf cart.
It’s a hard life after all ;-)
So, yeah: I had a pretty good day.
You may hear off and on from me for the next week, but I’ll be out of town whacking little white balls and generally proving that I have poor athletic abilities while spending money doing it … after all, they had to call it “golf” because all the other four-letter words were taken.
With deference to the genius of David Bowie, here’s Space Oddity, recorded on Station. A last glimpse of the World.
Huge thanks in the making of the video to the talented trio of Emm Gryner, Joe Corcoran and Andrew Tidby, plus Evan Hadfield and all at the CSA.
Honestly, this is even better than you think it will be.
Politicalprof: If NASA marketed itself this way, we’d already have colonies on Mars…
TV director for a golf tournament in which Tiger Woods is playing.
Cut one: Tiger is hitting. Put Tiger on!
Cut two: Tiger is waiting to hit. Put Tiger on!
Cut three: Tiger is waiting to putt. Put Tiger on, and talk about Tiger.
Cut four: Put up interview of another player; ask about Tiger.
Cut five: There’s a lull in the action. Cut to Lindsey Vonn with Tiger!
If Tiger Woods is leading, take those five rules and square them.
Oh, you mean this Trans-Pacific Partnership? The long-standing, widely-reported trade negotiations that have been going on for years? Ah.
It’s true. It had not occurred to me that the participants in another round of neo-liberal trade negotiations were the group that is NOW in global control of everything everywhere all the time, taking the place of such predecessors as:
—the Trilateral Commission;
—the ZOG (Zionist-Occupied Government);
—International Communism and its global acolytes;
—the International Jewish Conspiracy as described in the fantasy-but-evil book, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion;
—and, of course, the Jewish Bankers.
(as an aside, is anyone else struck by the fact that Jewish people — if they really run the world as conspiracy wackadoos seem to so often think they do — have sure gotten abused and brutalized a lot if they’re really in charge of everything?)
And by the way, it’s a pretty terrible secret conspiracy to control everything everywhere all the time when it has, you know, web sites both for and against it that can be accessed easily, and has been reported on for many, many years.
