Monday's Missives

Image result for Adolf Hitler Meme
  • Last night (today is 07/16/2016 @0503) I dreamed I visited a factory that made sleeping bags that used body bags for covers. My eldest son worked there and helped design them.
  • The official name for a body bag is Pouch: Humain Remains. They come in boxes of ten. An old friend would swear that one of his Army units issued everybody one and soldiers had to carry it in their rucksacks in case they became casualties.  In Iraq we carried reflective burn blankets that were to do double duty- burned people would of course be wrapped in them to treat for shock but dead folks could also be rolled up and then the roll would be secured with 100mph tape.
  • My first encounter with body bags was helping move some stuff around in the supply room of K Troop 3/11 ACR in Bad Hersfeld Germany. The boxes were big but did not weigh as much as intuitively one would guess for their size so it made us read the label on the side of box.
  • Pouch: Human Remains 10 ea.
  • This morning I was the first commenter on a Youchoobs video. I do not think that has ever happened to me before.
  • For some reason I recently took note of the average cost to build a pool in my area. It was cheaper than I thought it would be by about half - it is rare for me to get something like that so wrong.
  • I awoke this morning thinking about grilled shrimp and steak.
  • Two patients- one a male the other female whom we know live together refer to each by turns as brother and sister, boyfriend and girlfriend and husband and wife. Good grief, you wild and crazy kids- get your stories straight. 
  • Regardless of any other consideration- they think everybody else in the world is as stupid as they are.
  • The overnight forecast calls for humidty to be nearly 80%. How can that be so without it pouring rain? I mean come on universe!
  • There are tons of bookmarks on my tablet and I make new favorites frequently but I have never referred back to any of them- ever.
  • Russian TOS 1A MLRS in action. Wow.

Thursday's Thoughts

Image result for memes funny
  • Two guys in the pool (07/13/2016 @1814) are quoting Toy Story. One of the guys girlfriend is probably of age but man- she looks more like 13 or maybe 15 and he looks way older than he probably is.
  • That makes for an unsettling combination.
  • The other day somebody told me about a tattoo a family member has that is a cowboy superimposed over an American Indian. They acted like it was the coolest thing ever. It sounded retarded.
  • Today (07/16/2016) I had a very mediocre burger at Logan's
  • Today is 08/05/2026 and me and Zac are at the pool. There is a guy I see all the time here. He is with a new girlfriend. Her head is too small for her body. It is freaking me out a little. 
  • Another guy whom I interact with often and would call a friendly aquaintance is here with his new girlfriend. He is a stud and while quite nice and funny she is older and a bit of a sapphire type. They seem very mismatched.
  • If I had it all to do over again I would have been a firefighter.
  • Did you bring alcohol? Cuz you're gonna need it over here! What one of the wits said to a newcomer to the pool.
  • After Zacs flesh mother dropped him off I saw she bumped into my ex girlfriend on the way out. They chatted for an easy 15 minutes.
  • So, that is not terrifying at all...
  • Sometime when I clear my history it logs me out of Gmail and other times it does not and it does this (or does not) without me changing settings. As a matter of fact- these inconsistencies will happen multiple times on the same day with the same device.
  • An interesting two view video of a VBIED attack in iraq- one from an IS camera and one from an Iraqi soldier.

Politics- As Usual

    Image result for political memes

  • Some smart, well informed people believe war (at least naval and air to air) with China is inevitable. They are probably correct. Out first mistake with China was selling our souls to the Devil by allowing them to finance our crazy with loans. Then we let them outmaneuver us everywhere that has water that arguably comes back to their shores and finally- we let them outsmart us in regards to Russia; as every day their ties to each other grow and our relationship with Russia deteoriates.
  • Recently a homeless person came into our clinic to be screened for shelter clearance. She was wearing a C spine brace also known as a halo. If she had no home she should have been in a nursing home. Instead, she was riding a bus and being jostled around while she jumped through hoops to be allowed a bed in a warehouse. This was happening while we are importing into this country more poor people than the rest of the world combined- poor people who will get medicaid, housing and yes- Social Security benefits if they are disabled.
  • We are crazy.
  • For the most part I presumed people who were screaming about Hilary's health obviously had their own toxic agenda and were maybe even straight up lying but wow- that video of her fainting at that 911 memorial looked bad. People can randomly get a pneumonia but they should not randomly get a pneumonia (presuming that is what she had and is all she had). You have to consider- what was the underlying cause?
  • I could be convinced she has Parkinson's but regardless something is up- she doesn't even look right.
  • On the 10th of September I was asked to hang out with somebody the next day as they did not want to be alone. I cannot think like that if for no other reason than reliving horrible moments like that doesn't allow for healing. Our brains are notoriously bad at deciding what is real and what is not and what was then and what is now and I did not want to be stuck watching replays of that day.
  • Yesterday I saw a an article with the headline to the effect of, "Air Force general unsure of what US response will be after North Korean nuclear bomb tests." My first response was, Um, probably what we always do- walk around in circles with one thumb up our butts the other in our mouth while meowing the Meow Mix jingle and then we back a dump truck full of money up to Kim Jong Un's palace?!
  • We have a minimum age for President but no maximum.
  • You can say what you want about your most beloved aged historical figure or your sainted granny but an 80 year old brain does not function like a 50.
  • Recently I saw a picture of President Obama and Vlad Putin meeting at some summit or whatever. President Obama looked like he was going to terror-vomit.

Saturday's Soliloquy

  • To be filed underI may not know much: It may not be time to leave if a woman you are with makes it known to all her friends when she is mad at you but if she starts furiously texting away to tell people how bad you are every time she is mad at you - it is a big problem that will only get worse. Again, it may not be time to leave- but it is time to take care of yo business homes.
  • You can look it up if you want but Washington's decision to inoculate his troops against smallpox has been considered a decisive factor for the Continentals winning the US Revolutionary War. They went from losing more guys to the pox than from battle to losing nearly none to the disease.
  • Recently (today is 02/12/2015) I heard that an area nursing school still requires students to wear white scrubs and the cap during clinicals. I have a tough time buying they would still hobble their students like that but it made me think first of all and foremost: If they do still require those practices- what else do they get wrong?
  • I think I got some bad scoop from nursing underworld buddy- they can't do that anymore- right?!
  • This morning (02/13/2015) I warmed a turnover in the microwave. After 7 seconds it was no warmer to touch than when it went into the machine. After returning it to the oven for 5 more seconds it was too hot to touch much less eat. That makes no sense to me. What manner of witchery is that?
  • This morning (02/17/2015) on the way to work a small car passed me with a Ford F150 tailgating it not more than 3 feet away. They were going at least 80 miles per hour.
  • Crazy

Today Is The First Day Of Fall (so called) And The High Will Be 96 Degrees. The Humidity Is 77% As I Write This

Kill Me

The Label Lies,

if it was Fun Size- it would weigh 3 pounds. Interestingly, I poured several of them out of my jacket pocket and this one landed on the junk mail with the guy looking up at it like that.

Pre Brazos Float Trip Talk- A Brazos Float Trip That Is Now A Long Ago Pleasant Memory

The Brazos float trip is still a go but with a weird twist. The conversation went like this:

Woman with whom I have lately been spending time: Yeah it is still on.
Me: Good, I'll pick up some food.
WwwIhbst: They want hot dogs.
Me: Huh?! Wait, what? I can make some Mountain Pantry chicken fettucine with a can or two of green beans and some asparagus in half a jiff.
WwwIhbst: They want dogs
 Me: That makes no sense. There are condiments, multiple ingredients... a lot of trouble. Special storage and handling etc- to eat garbage. When we could carry paper plates and after we eat some good food throw the whole mess in the fire and pack out the two non flammable packages.
 WwwIhbst: Its fun.
Me: It is garbage- snake anus' mongoose lips llama vulvas... it is garbage.
WwwIhbst: It is fun.

That settles it I guess- it is fun.
