Next Time, We Eat A Rancor

I guess I'm spot-starting again

I'm currently listening to The Black Guy Who Tips podcast. I thoroughly enjoy it, and have for a few years. Give it a whirl. And it's definitely NSFW.

Fuck the Saint Louis Cardinals and fuck Tony LaRussa. Keith, I wear a seven and a quarter.

There's pretty much no way I'm gonna lose more weight than H by the Summit. I'm probably just gonna eat less and drink more water and drink fewer sodas.

I've been seriously thinking about playing softball for the 1st time in over a decade. I probably can't even hit home runs any more. I think I prefer having warning track power in softball, because the majority of the good leagues have home run limits in them. That, and the restricted-flight balls.

I'm pretty jazzed about the Kanye & Jay Z album that's coming out. Yes, I will actually pay for it, and have listened to "Otis" about eleventy billion times.

Have I mentioned that YouTube is a pretty tremendous place to download music from? Not for full albums, but individual songs that I like.

I want a giant box of Nerds like Dana White has. Goddamn, I love Nerds.

I guess I'm gonna fill out Costco's ridiculous online application again since they're opening a new store in Pewaukee at the end of October. Pewaukee is kind of a haul to make for a Costco job. Speaking of work, I'm something like 95% sure the HR people just throw out the applications I put in for open positions in other departments.

I need a haircut pretty bad. I feel like I look kind of ridiculous.

Do you guys watch the Epic Meal Time videos? I love 'em. There are bloodshot eyes in every one they make. I hope they can keep coming up with new shit. I don't even mind the shameless sponsorship shit they do in the videos sometimes.

I guess we need one more for Fantasy Football. Somebody should sign up. Or Kod & Rev could co-own a team. They could be the Lincoln & JFK of LoV Fantasy Football. Lincoln, Kennedy. Lincoln Kennedy?

I guess that's enough for now. I really didn't have anything to say. Go comment.

"Witnesses tell Newsradio 620 WTMJ of a mob of young people attacking innocent fair-goers at the end of the opening night of State Fair.

Milwaukee Police confirmed there were assaults outside the fair.

Witnesses' accounts claim everything from dozens to hundreds of young black people beating white people as they left State Fair Thursday night.

"It looked like they were just going after white guys, white people," said Norb Roffers of Wind Lake in an interview with Newsradio 620 WTMJ.

"Police say a Philadelphia college professor killed himself by diving over a second-floor railing inside a campus building during class.

the 71-year-old professor walked out of his class Wednesday, returned briefly, yelled and then ran to a second-floor railing outside the classroom. Police say campus security was summoned and Alexandrov dived over the railing and hit the floor, some 20 to 30 feet below. "

"Kind of a fine line, with it being my employer too"


that's why you also put *them* on notice that *you* are on notice of the potential for "pretextual wrongful termination" for asserting your legal rights against this HD contractor


but in a nice non-threatening way (ns...finesse it in).

"companies hate small claims court."

yep, and they hate bona fide meritous unlawful termination suits even more

macho weekend sound suite.

sounds like the exact opposite of the cpy summit

hilarity from today's local paper:


"The Bemidji Pioneer’s policy is to run every letter to the editor that does not defame a person or business. The editor also verifies the name and address of the sender, either by email or telephone call.

In the case of the letter submitted for Thursday, Aug. 4, by Kathy _______ of Forestville, Wis., the editor called the number provided on Tuesday to discuss the letter. The person the editor talked to said she was Kathy _____ and had a Forestville telephone prefix.

A local law enforcement officer, seeking to understand the specifics of the writer’s complaint, called the Forestville city clerk’s office Thursday and asked for contact information, which the clerk supplied. The officer called the number and reached a Kathy ______ in Forestville. That woman said she never wrote a letter to the Pioneer, nor had she ever been in Bemidji.

Obviously, the editor was the victim of a scam or identity theft by someone claiming to be Kathy _________."


wow, this is a new identity theft wrinkle. Could you imagine if someone did that using your name? Crazy.

Blue said...

did anyone invite tiki barber to camp?

well link up the article so we can read it to find out why everyone wants to know Kathy

AZ is a right to work state. They could fire me for nothing

Whiskey Tango said...

That being said, I'm confident they're going to do the right thing. They're supposebly* at my house fixing it right now

kod said...

"AZ is a right to work state. They could fire me for nothing"



you can be let go for nothing...but that doesn't mean you can be fired for something, just because they say it's nothing. For instance, they can't fire you because of your race, gender, age, or (assuming certain factors are met), disability status and hide behind the fact that they are a "right to work" or "at will employment" state.

It's a subtle but important distinction. Even in at will employment states, an employer cannot fire certain protected employees (like those who are asserting a valid legal claim against their company).

I mean, they could fire you; but I'd be happy to get the back pay, punitive damages and attorneys fees myself. Sounds better than work (at least sounds better than working at HD)

kod said...

Not that I'm advising you to bring a small claims court suit...I'm not. I do not know enough facts and have not done legal research on this particular fact pattern to offer you competent advice on the subject (yes, this is a disclaimer)....

I just want to point out that "right to work" and "at will employment" only means you are not automatically entitled to a contract of employment.

I'm not sure if there are any states left that are not "right to work" or "at will employment" states.

Blue said...

temhio is not a right to work state.

Jugdish said...

what's the latest on the fence story? is it actually worth going to court over?

Blue said...

the latest is that a guy did a shitty job putting up a fence

kod said...

other caviat re: small claims court


if you had to sign a contract with HD for the fence work, it's likely you agreed to mandatory arbitration of any and all disputes....probably in Florida or some other inconvenient locale. Oh, and the arbitrator....paid for and selected by HD, so clearly no bias (at least, no bias against HD)


those things drive me nuts; top 10 biggest flaws in our legal system today IMO

Whiskey Tango said...

"what's the latest on the fence story?"

HD guy was supposed to come out tomorrow & look at it. He called me a few hours ago and said he was on this side of town and axed if I was home. I told him I wasn't but that our gate was unlocked, so he headed over. He just called me about 30 minutes ago and said the fence is fixed and all the PVC is fixed. He said that there were 2 other people who called him this week about the fence guy, one of them the guy didn't even show up for the yob


"is it actually worth going to court over?"

Whiskey Tango said...

and no, it's not worth going to court over

Thanks for all the info, kod. Although I understood only about 20% of it.

"In July, 117,000 jobs were added in the economy, and the unemployment rate dropped to 9.1 percent from 9.2 percent. But the drop in the unemployment rate should not be celebrated as a signal of strong growth: It came almost entirely from Americans dropping out of the labor force."



-Hey, maybe if people get discouraged enough, we can get that unemployment rate down to 0!


"The one positive sign amid all this gloom is that corporate profits remain at record highs, higher even than in the days before the financial crisis."

-well, that IS what you voted for in 2010, America

-no problem, I just kind of find that kind of stuff interesting I guess...thought maybe at least a couple in here might too

-and I'm glad it ended up getting resolved so you didn't even have to think about doing the court/arbitration thing (ns)

Whiskey Tango said...

I'm glad it's fixed (hopefully, I haven't seen it yet), but I'm still going to work on getting some sort of compensation back for what we paid for the labor

Hey guys

I hate that this is happening, but cmkod's sister was just given about one month to live (pancreatic cancer)

It's not looking like I'll be able to make the LS II. We had to drop over a grand on flight/hotel on short notice so cmkod can go out right away to spend time with her next week, and I'm sure we'll have to make another trip there soon for the funeral.

Jug, please pm me on facebook with your address and what I owe you for the room....I'll send you the check right away.

it's crazy, my cousin was killed in a car accident over the weekend of last Summit, now with II comes this

Thanks guys


the worse is that she's had it for over a year now, and it was actually getting better and even shrinking through chemo and radiation and an experimental drug trial.

as part of getting into the drug trial, after a year she had to forgo chemo and radiation for two months. In those two months it spread like wildfire, to the point she can't even stay in the trial now and lost the ability to walk.

kod said...

"The drop in the rating by one notch to AA-plus was telegraphed as a possibility back in April. The three main credit agencies, which also include Moody's Investor Service and Fitch, had warned during the budget fight that if Congress did not cut spending far enough, the country faced a downgrade. Moody's said it was keeping its AAA rating on the nation's debt, but that it might still lower it.

One of the biggest questions after the downgrade was what impact it would have on already nervous investors."


This is getting so out of control. What would the founder fathers think about a system where credit agencies can tank our economy because the elected representatives don't set policies/funding that they think is best? Where does this lead us? To agencies like fucking S&P running our government.

But nobody really seems to have a problem with this?

kod said...

not to mention those same credit agencies having quite a bit of responsibility for the entire fucking market crash to begin with

kod said...

market crash to begin with = 2008 panic/run on banks/bubble bursting

Jay Cutler has cut even more ties in Colorado -- the former Denver Broncos quarterback finally sold off the mansion he lived before he was traded to Chicago ... TMZ has learned.

According to official documents, Cutler purchased the home in Parker, CO in 2005 for $1.34 million. Cutler put his home up for sale in 2010 for $1.625 ... but nobody took the bait.

Cutler eventually lowered his asking price ... and the 5,344 square foot estate finally sold on July 19 for a cool $1,000,000.

We are redoing our guest bathroom which will eventually be bgas.' bathroom. Went to HD today to get new faucets, towel bars, etc. Had about $200 in the cart. I got a thing in the mail this week that is you put $299 or more on your HD credit card, there is no interest for 12 months. So we walked around and I was adding it up in my head. I had it added up to about $310 and we checked out. The chick at the register scanned each item and it totaled $265 with tax. I was like, wft. We had a gallon of paint and cmk axed the girl is she scanned that and she said yeah. So I was like whatever, I'm not going back to get more stuff so we just paid and left. We got home and cmk looked at the receipt and all the stuff in the bags, and there were 5 things that weren't on the receipt, totaling about $65. No idear why they weren't on there because she scanned everything and put it in the bags. But whatever, score one for the good guys
