Anyhow, I don't feel like our Administration requires any sort of Official Position on this one, but if you like you may make it one of your pet-projects.

You know how I feel about Man-Dates and Man-Dating stuff...

Quote from: K_Dubb on August 13, 2022, 12:24:48 PMIf people were dying, maybe, or if they discover "long monkeypox", but as it stands now it ranks somewhere lower in risk than the HIV we (or at least the good-looking ones for whom it is an option 😩) routinely hazard.  If the regular folks start getting it, it will be holy war for sure.

I tell you one thing, if it was as disfiguring as smallpox used to be it would disappear overnight.
I know doctors are supposed to be relatively non-judgemental (this is a dumb idea by the way, they should push more shame and motivate to reform bad lifestyle choices or at least tell the truth- you are going to die because you are fat and smoke, you aren't bigboned) but how could any doctor or nurse say to one of these persons- "you know using meth and having sex, even 'protected,' in the streets and bathhouses with many random partners despite have VD and sleeping in an alley might be a larger concern to your health, as well as the public, than this new pox you got." That list you gave was wacko because it considered this acceptable behavior, despite the new pox.

Wrong movie.  The original was almost 40 years ago.

LOL you can try distributing it as a reward for marital chastity (I would be near the front of the line 😩) but it would do exactly fuck-all.  With scarcity, you give it to the people who are spreading it first.

I have no doubt that it came from certain Francophone regions, yes.  And man-dates are surely how we got in this mess in the first place.

Quote from: albrecht on August 13, 2022, 11:50:56 AMMany of these activities would seem to be 'public health emergencies' (or at least private emergencies) even without this latest Monkey-derived VD/Pox situation.
Quote from: K_Dubb on August 13, 2022, 11:15:00 AMThe latest is people are driving to Canada to get the vaccine no questions asked in Vancouver (though BC now "strongly discourages" the practice) because the criteria even with the five-split doses mean thanks to concerns with equity you basically have to be a manwhore or homeless meth user to get it here.

You have to be exposed or gay AND have one of the following:

Sex with more than ten people in three months
Syphilis or gonorrhea in the past year
Meth use in the past month
Bathhouse or sex club in the past three months
Homeless and had any sex at all in the past three months

I'm pretty sure I haven't had sex with more than ten people in the last 30 years. For sure, it wasn't all at once.

Hopefully, you are married and have been so for less than 30 years;  Otherwise I will have to accept your resignation from the Chairmanship of the Federal Communications Commision.

There is only one set of circumstances that the MAPA ideals find acceptable for your position.

Haha. Some of the same red-hatted folks have no, real problems unless it is related to grazing or water rights, but accept laws, regulations, vaxxes,or practices in their self-interest related to animal husbandry, transport, crops, processing, etc. Even police-style checks and rules and quarantine zones or even culling if it is called for. And there is insurance also for such things also, if one is smart. One would think the other 'community' would also self-police since governments are loathe to be considered anti-BLTQIG++. And now dog has the new pox somehow caught from monkeyshines to people and now dogs!  Ignore animals action, maybe pass on the bathhouses and meth action, and decide street sex and/or sleeping might not be best option. But if forced, due to economic concerns, just sleep and not the sex part, during the times of a pox. Possibly the "BrokeBack" mountain herder guys who could inform the "community" on disease protocols as a sort of go-between?

It was recognized early on by some of our loudest activist types that well-intentioned sensitivity was a problem and our own public-health officer was quick to address the gays, though now for some reason we are "MSM" which I am used to seeing meaning something else not entirely unrelated.  Posters in all the bar bathrooms next to the ones with HIV, we can have wild ten-man monkey sex but it has to be the same ten men every time, you guys just don't see it because it is not for you.

The sad thing is, gays were the most-vaxxed population of all during covid, I have seen figures as high as 96%, we are used to relying on shots for all kinds of horrible stuff.  Had the FDA acted swiftly we'd all be vaxxed by now and it would be over.  There are the makings of a large scandal here for the anti-Sleepy Joe types but you'd rather sit and watch us itch and laugh at us :(

I'm not laughing, except at the government bureaucrats and simple common-sense options, especially in time of poxes. No monkey action. Even a aggie or whisky-addled crofter on some Scottish heath just picks a favorite ewe to avoid a pox. The latter even might write some poetry to them. I kid, I kid. But one wonders about some of Rabbie's stuff. I kid, not pun.

OK, I don't have anything else better to do tonight. I'll go watch some itchy gay guys.

Ruffles seem suspect. This to be addressed at the SardineFest. What with the Ruffles when an original Lays could suffice. Suddenly, people want Ruffles in a deep-fried potato chip. Why? Because then comes the dips- originally French, onion-based, but then onto into more ethnic stuff. Humus? I thought that was a kind of SOIL, then it became a dip. And our friendly illegals bring us Bean Dip. Adding lbs to society. Like those French style "items" sold in seedy bars and truckstop bathrooms in a malfunctioning coin-operated machine when a rubber should be enough, ideally bought with a shamed-face before a local pharmacist behind a high-counter who knows your parents and whole family and comments to other patrons as one asks for one, or some being of a half-glassed full kind of guy a box of them, in a muted tone and shifty eyes.

I saw some kind of show about 'tracking down' place of a Millpond painting. It actually was interesting as they experts tried to figure out authenticity and then location of such landscape. I think it was a sort of barnfinds or painting under painting deal? I forget. But also saw at Vesterheim that a certain emigrant later send money over to bring a millstone (family still back there.) What is it about millstones? Family legend of old had tales about a grindstone carried for miles on his back (Norwegian old long miles, not our miles) to meager family plot. I know Bible also frequently mentions mill and grind stones, in addition to other methods of sharpening or separating. Used as metaphors or just practicality. There is lots lost in urban culture and not understanding the value of herds, types of stones, and so on.

Absolutely. Paradise! Then you could have feasted like a king, having breakfast at the Clifton Mill restaurant, before taking a leisurely stroll through the bucolic downtown streets of Yellow Springs, contemplating just how beautiful the towering Maples will be this Fall.

OK, I have to run. Albrecht just reminded me I need to pick up some Dean's French onion dip. Watching gay guys itch is a bummer without enough dip for the Ruffles. I hope Pate doesn't get lost in the drive-thru again, picking up the booze.

I don't know about millstones but grindstones in particular have a special place often being heirlooms acquired at great cost or a lot of hard work generations ago by some ancestor at and kind of a metaphor for time passing, honing the scythe for mowing which is where they got the most use, flower of grass cut down in its prime, with probably with some old smith-magic related to iron-working thrown in.  There is a famous old song on those themes, the grindstone waltz goes on and on, the flower doesn't know what is coming, ah you are the one turning the crank this year, etc.

Takk for sist. Once again BG a source for info and listening stuff! I got an old (small) grind stone and recall sharpening shovels on it with my Farfar; But the behemoth one was lost (thankfully.)

Grandpa had one of those big ones set up on kind of a tricycle-looking thing, I am sure it wasn't brought from Norway, he probably got it at a garage sale haha.  It's in my uncle's garage now.  But when you consider that for us peasant folk that was probably the only piece of worked stone on the farm you can imagine the relative cost of the thing, originally.  Even now, when archaeologists dig up low-status peasant dwellings, the burnt hearth and maybe a hand mill (kvern the source of our word quern of course) and a few postholes are all that are left.

I will not get lost in the drive-thru, this has never happened.  I think the incident you refer to was when I walked to the liquor store during my one of my GabCast co-hosting appearances, that was Great Radio btw.  That was roughly a two-mile roundtrip, and I think I did it in record drunken thyme.  (Someone will have to review the tapes to find out how long it took me to walk two miles and interact with the staff at the liquor store.  My guess is about half an hour tops.)

I happen to have a half bottle of Admiral Nelson's left, and was just about to head out for supplies to make coleslaw and potato salad.



I shall add another bottle of the Admiral's best to the list.

As to this mission of watching itchy gay guys;  I really have lots of shit to fix:  but I will go along as long as we can turn this to my KamPain's advantage somehow.

In order to blend in, the Admiral Nelson's will be used to make mojitos (a fancy version of Navy Grog that I have found to be very refreshing in this brutal MidWest heat-wave), and the chips must be:



...for reasons.  Y'all are both wrong with the Ruffles and Lay's.  Although, now that I think of it perhaps a combination of all three will also be good camouflage?

We will also need some sort of technology capable of defeating or rendering inoperable the Gay-Dar, or we will have to drag K_Dubb along as additional cover.

Hopefully, the establishment where these somewhat questionable observations are to take place both accepts BYOB and is capable of making a mojito (fresh mint isn't that common).

Hear, mission Musaks:


Thank you in Advance!  It is an honor to serve.

Of course, what was I thinking.  Hopefully you'll be a little quicker on your pogo stick, hopping down the road for the Admiral's. Nothing but the best booze for us aficionados of fine live art. At least we won't have to be concerned about the itchy gay guys bumming our booze, since they'll no doubt have better taste.

The Admiral gets fine reviews:

https://rumratings.com/rum/10-admiral-nelson-s-premium-spiced

I had no idea that the Admiral produces this fine looking product:



I will have to put in requests at my favored suppliers to ensure that this obviously superior product is available next time I need mojito ingredient restocking.

For those snooty itchy gay-types I see that he also makes:



A premium Coconut-flavored version;  as well as Watermelon, Premium Raspberry, Pineapple, Cherry Spiced & Vanilla versions.

I wonder how the Premium Gold & Black Patch editions stack up next to regular Admiral's?

I had no idea of the Admiral's wealth in variety!

The Admiral's 5.1/10 on that site delivers a simply devastating broadside (probably a raking fore or aft T-crossing) to the lowly Captain's 4.9/10!

Yes, Sukey sends me at least twenty of those a day.  Fortunately that region is especially forgiving when it comes to permanent scarring, we are awaiting the long-term effects of fistfuls of oozing pustules on the areas that are routinely plucked skin-penned and botoxed within an inch of their lives but it looks promising.
