should have eaten out

First of all, Pops slipped on the ice unloading groceries and broke his ankle so bad he’s getting surgery. So let’s pour some of that 40 on the sidewalk or create a tip jar for him or pray if that’s what you do. He’ll be fine, I’m sure, but it’s no fun being laid up.

The hard worker was pictured in a UK Guardian article about unemployment. A google image search revealed a few more photos strangers have uploaded to the great photo album in the sky. It’s nice the bearded lady lives on and is still loved.

proper link

Not sure how to make a proper link from the phone and the Internet isn’t working. Again.


  1. “Instead, they seemed more intent on finding ways in which they could get ordinary workers to accept lower pay and reduced public benefits in the years ahead.”

    These aren’t economists, they’re pundits for the rich people, and quite lazy too if that’s all they can come up with. It’s also pretty stupid, because poor people don’t spend, and if they don’t spend, businesses make less money, and it’s like the snake eating it’s tail.

    The rich capitalists are loving this time, because they get to trash people around and they will take it, because “times are tough”. Meanwhile they have taken very little “tough” themselves, they are still making the same outrageous salaries, and even getting tax cuts!

    Oh… and I think you said somewhere you might want to learn Spanish… well, the best way to learn a language is to use it everyday, and be forced to use it, so load up some Mexicans next time and force them to teach you some Spanish…

  2. today i picked up a metric shit ton of scrap metal from an electrician. Old light cans, gang boxes, breakers, conduit, everything but the copper scraps. So many light fixtures too, and threaded nipple, which are quite often aluminum. It was a big shop, run by a few brothers with Australian accents. They had some Latinos helping. Domingo helped me load up.

    When you load you gotta separate. Aluminum is 49 cents a pound dirty while scrap tin is only 10. So I ask Domingo how to say magnet.

    “ee’mahn,” he says. I think, “he-man.” And that is all the spanish I learned today.
