Tehborken is not from Southeast Asia.  You are a liar.

Correct, RDL.

I was born and raised in America. I never set foot in SE Asia until 2006.

I suppose if you let the police shoot citizens to death over and over and over without any accountability or punishment, you shouldn't be surprised if some of them start shooting back.  I don't condone what happened, but the media is as clueless as they could possibly be:
Megyn Kelly: "We do not know the motivation behind tonight's shooting in Dallas"

Yahoo: "Nor do authorities know what motivated the attack..."

Chief David Brown said, "...police don't have a motivation for the attacks"

Zero Hedge: "No specific motive has been given for the shootings at the downtown protest..."
Holy shit, I'm an old white guy and I know why EXACTLY the shootings took place.

It's no mystery, this isn't something you need to puzzle out. It's plain f*cking as day: you let cops go around shooting and killing people, mostly young black men, and you don't punish or convict them. Sooner or later someone is going to pop a gasket and start shooting at cops.

For the media to say that they "don't know why this happened" is the stupidest thing I've heard in a long, long time.

Oslo is dropping out of bidding for the 2022 Winter Olympics, leaving Almaty, Kazakhstan and Beijing as the only remaining cities seeking to host the event. Why? One reason is that people are starting to realize that spending mega-money to build sporting venues that may not ever be used again doesn't make economic sense.

Another is that the International Olympic Committee is a notoriously ridiculous organization run by grifters and hereditary aristocrats. Norwegian citizens were particularly amused/outraged (amuseraged) by the IOC's diva-like demands for luxury treatment during the hypothetical Games. Here's a piece in the Norwegian media about the controversy, with translation provided by a generous Norwegian reader named Mats Silberg:
  • They demand to meet the king prior to the opening ceremony. Afterwards, there shall be a cocktail reception. Drinks shall be paid for by the Royal Palace or the local organizing committee.
  • Separate lanes should be created on all roads where IOC members will travel, which are not to be used by regular people or public transportation.
  • A welcome greeting from the local Olympic boss and the hotel manager should be presented in IOC members' rooms, along with fruit and cakes of the season. (Seasonal fruit in Oslo in February is a challenge ...)
  • The hotel bar at their hotel should extend its hours “extra late” and the minibars must stock Coke products.
  • The IOC president shall be welcomed ceremoniously on the runway when he arrives.
  • The IOC members should have separate entrances and exits to and from the airport.
  • During the opening and closing ceremonies a fully stocked bar shall be available. During competition days, wine and beer will do at the stadium lounge.
  • IOC members shall be greeted with a smile when arriving at their hotel.
  • Meeting rooms shall be kept at exactly 20 degrees Celsius at all times.
  • The hot food offered in the lounges at venues should be replaced at regular intervals, as IOC members might “risk” having to eat several meals at the same lounge during the Olympics.
   The IOC issued a statement responding to Oslo's decision:
"This is a missed opportunity for the City of Oslo and for all the people of Norway who are known world-wide for being huge fans of winter sports. And it is mostly a missed opportunity for the outstanding Norwegian athletes who will not be able to reach new Olympic heights in their home country."

LOL!! Sounds like Oslo has its head on straight. f*ck the IOC, who are a bunch of predatory scumbags.

Nice. Macro lens, or...?


Seriously, though, you all are welcome to post here if you like.

Being able to not work doesn't necessarily mean that you're a gazillionaire.

I'm not a gazilionaire, or even a millionaire. But I don't have to work. :)

But I choose to work at a job where I'm wearing a sign and waving to traffic for 3 hours a day, 3 days a week, for no other reason that it provides me with more fun money and escape from boredom.

And I choose to take the occasional contract if it's not too far away and pays well enough to make it worth my time. Microsoft, Boeing, AT&T,'s fun to show up for a few weeks or so, do my thing, make some money and then leave. But I don't want to do it day after day, 40 hours a week forever and ever.

'Mostly retired'?  Is that one of those things unemployed people say to make them feel better about where they are in life, like when they say they're 'in-between jobs'?

No, it means that I don't need to work, but sometimes I'll take a contract position if I'm bored or want more fun money.

That's because I have a job and you don't ;D

That's because I'm mostly retired and you're not. :)

You have to be near the car, normally within 10 feet or so from what I've seen.

Do you have to be in the car to start a keyless ignition car or can you just press a button on the keys?

Wish I could say the same. We're starting off our new year with my mom needing bypass surgery on three clots, I'm in and out of court over personal issues, and my aunt recently passed away.
Hopefully the year will get better from here *knock on wood*

I hope things improve and settle out for you. As my friend says, "Look at it this way- considering how crappy things are now, you've got nowhere to go but up!"

And there is some truth in that. Oy.

Same to you all, I hope you have a great 2016.

My SIL just arrived last night, so the year is off to a good start for us.

Hi everyone.

Hope you all enjoyed your holidays and are off to a great new year.

Hope you enjoy your new job TB. Is it a long commute for you?

Maybe 30 minutes or so, not too bad.

Congratulations on your new job, TB? ???

Yeah, I'm having fun with it. I was just kicking around the house and kinda bored so I figured I might as well do something productive with my time, at least for a while.
