  • I think he's on steroids. I haven't seen any of his movies.

  • There might have been animal love, but when you really got down to it, they were just into horse cock.

  • Who isn't?

  • I keep confusing "The Rock" with Vin Diesel.

    That's a mix-up that imagine neither of them would appreciate.

  • It's weird how not just press but white house and GOP types are talking about whether Cohen will flip on Trump, but nobody seriously considers the possibility that he might not have any incriminating information to give up.

    Based on a court hearing today in California, he's getting ready to plead the 5th in the Stormy Daniels case... which implies that he's got incriminating information... at least about himself.

    Also, Stormy Daniels' attorney believes that there is incriminating information about Trump, that will come out as the case unfolds... he firmly believes that Trump will be forced to resign before the end of his term.

    I think he underestimates how stubborn Trump is... but I don't know what he knows.

  • Popehat had an article today about that, if you missed it. The gist was that there's a good chance the civil case will get delayed at least temporarily, since a criminal case seems imminent.
  • The IMDB description for the upcoming Deadpool 2 movie:

    After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry's hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor - finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World's Best Lover.

    Love it!

  • When I turned on the news this morning... it was wall-to-wall stupid... Seriously... It was a Parade of idiots.

    There's this stupidity, which is almost as stupid as this preposterous story.

    To top it all off, there was this family, who thought it was ok to get out of their car with the cheetahs in a safari park.

  • I stopped watching a long time ago. My blood pressure is high enough already.

    Nissan has been running the following commercial lately; cross promoting the latest Star Wars movie and the Nissan Rogue:

    I get more angry and disappointed with this piece of crap every time I see it... Seriously... If you need an electronic gizmo in your car to help you maintain your lane, on the highway, you should NOT BE DRIVING!

    We are on the road towards a culture that embraces and encourages lazy and unskilled drivers (no pun intended).

    Now... I am not necessarily against the coming of autonomous self-driving cars. Even the GM concept, where there isn't even a steering wheel. Not for me... but for all the other slobs behind the wheel, trudging down the road without care or concern. If they want to surrender driving to a computer, I say, let them. I reason that an autonomous driving car isn't going to camp-out in the passing lane; maintain a steady speed; will be more likely to get out of my way; doesn't get road rage; and won't do stupid and unpredictable things. I dream of the day I can cruse down the highway unimpeded; without having dodge people who don't know how multi-lane streets and highways are supposed to work.

    Driver aids that make it ok to be an unskilled driver is something entirely different and is a dangerous step backwards. Drive or don't... Using crutches to compensate for a lack of basic driving skills is not the answer.

    ARRGH! >:-(

  • But how else will I text while changing lanes and yelling at the kid in the back?

    My wife actually leases a Rogue. None of these options in it, but I have to say the size of the blind spots on this thing are huge. I pray that the typical soccer moms and 'its not a mini-van' dads actually know how to use their mirrors.

    FWIW: Driving with your phone (or any other electronic device) in your hand will cost you $450.00 and three points, in Ontario.

    When it was originally made an offence, the fine was $115 and no points... After the news media interviewed enough people who simply considered it a cost of doing business (typically contractors, etc. who work out of their cars), things escalated quickly.

    The whole SUV cross-over craze just makes me ill. Yes, my wife drives a 2008 Lincoln MKX and it's good to have at least one car in the family with some good cargo capacity, but it has gone out of control. When the only car that Ford plans to sell in North America is the Mustang, something has gone horribly wrong.

    My pet peeve is car commercials that show off automatic brake systems like this:

    Shit, I could write a program that detects boxes that look like cars on a sunny day. Show a demo of the car braking automatically to avoid an overturned bicycle in the road on a rainy night, then it'll mean something.
