    Well, isn’t that special.

    Thanks for that! Made my day.

    After the video, the screen (for me) offers a link to George Carlin discussing drugs and creativity and related issues. Tracks that thread on alcohol to a remarkable degree plus adding George’s own genius. Worth a listen.

    Oldie but goodie. Still get a chuckle out of it. Thanks.

    Well, that certainly brought back a few memories of life in Canada.

    Hinterland Who’s Who was a popular or at least a was a wide spread staple of week-end morning CBC TV programming.

    I bet John Livingston who did the voice overs for all of those spots probably had to take a few takea, and a few shots, before getting it down. :-)

    He sounds like the same guy who narrates History Channel’s Modern Marvels.

    In 2006 I was bitten by a Brown Recluse. I don’t have a problem with spiders and usually take their little drunk asses outside but when the bite turned necrotic I had a big hunk of meat removed from my back.

    I came home tonight to find out that we had been robbed so I’m not happy now either.

      My sympathies..it sucks when that happens. Either scenario.

      Bummer. Not funny at all.

      That sucks. Sorry, man.

    • bobbo, pontificating like nobody's business says:

      I read the odds are 99% each one of us has a spinder within 10 feet of us….or something like that. They are ALL over the place. I actually have a nest of Daddy Longlegs in the corner that I keep as an indoor pet. Messy unattractive webs, but I too don’t take any pleasure in killing them. Black widow?===smash them every chance I get.

      Given their pervasiveness, I’m surprised more people aren’t sick/killed all the time. But, we did evolve with them.

      My house was burgled 6 weeks ago. I thought about getting a gun “to protect myself” and recalled the scientific data: gun more likely to be stolen and used against me! So, frig that.

      Instead–I’m still looking to find a low light/infra red camera that doesn’t “light up” to take its pictures on motion sensing, how to run it 20 feet to my computer and what not. Catching them after the fact is better than not at all. I’d like one to monitor my car, and the other to monitor my living/computer room. I just know if I had one camera it would be covering the wrong area

      Amusing how upset we get over a poor person stealing $10 of gas while at the same time we “can’t” do anything about the transgenerational theft of Trillions going on right in front of us in Congress.

      RICH = CRIMINAL, GUNS just a totem, other than those that get shot by them.

      • Gwad his own self says:

        I like spiders. I also like daddy longlegs.

        Two different things, though…. daddy longlegs are insects, not arachnids.

    This does not excuse Bush for snorting coke while he was an airforce pilot. And thank gawd they didn’t actually let him fly the planes.

    b, Mr. D,

    Condolences — though it has been a few decades, I know how that feels. If you do install motion-activated surveillance cams, though, don’t forget a burglar may also take the recording computer, so take a clue from the unfortunate Peter Curtis character from REAMDE and have all the video constantly backed up to a network storage device well hidden somewhere along your cabling.

    • Mr Diesel says:

      Yep, that’s the plan and thanks to all. Over $16k so far.

      • bobbo, pontificating like nobody's business says:

        Your implication is that not wanting to spend more than $50 probably won’t get me much?

        Rats.

  16. deowll says:

    Amusing at the least.

    Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we snort coke!
