Man, this country is doomed. 50 years from now, there will be a communist revolution. because first, there’s going to be a backlash against “socialism,” and it will usher in some sort of gov’t based on “liberty.” But what that means is deregulation, so companies will control everything, including the economy and all the cash. We’ll become fascists. Willingly too, because with deregulation comes less transparency, and the ability to lie is easier. “GMOs are like vitamins! Only better!” It will say on kid’s cereal. By GMO, they mean WD40 will be a food additive.
Then, when we’re all poor, and being forced into prisons or hard labor, there will be an uprising, behind a man like Fidel Castro, who will actually execute CEOs on TV. And we will call him our leader, because he says he will give us food (via bread lines), and we will essentially be annexed by China. that’s my Alex Jones prediction.
We’re hardly getting oil from Iraq right now… Exxon is losing oil fields, because they want too much profit. The Chinese are willing to make nearly no profit, because to them oil for the progress of their population is more important than more money for billionaire executives of companies. So China is getting all Iraq’s oil. Thanks, George W. Bush! Not that we should focus on oil. We should revolt against old energy. But we’re too fat and happy, watching people suck at singing in front of judges on TV. My world view is very bleak. I apologize.
Danger… High Seas
No Sure footing
No relief in sight
Do what must be done
Yo, I was just watching some documentary on Netflix about Cream. The band, not the stuff that floats to the top of the milk bucket after your Amish mom milks the cows every morning at 4.
Anywayz, they was all talkin’ about Eric Clapton, and how he got the nickname SLOWHAND. Let me tell you why…
So back in the day, Eric Clapton was jammin’ with The Yardbirds, who took over at some club for the Rolling Stones once they got big. Anyway, Clapton used light-gauge strings on his axe, and when he bent them too much, they’d break.
This man suffers from acute Slowhand
A guitarist needs six strings, so he’d limp through the rest of the song with five strings, and then change the broken one. While the rest of the Yardbirds and the fans sat and waited, the fans would start a slow clap. Thus, he became Eric “Slowhand” Clapton… and I think it’s supposed to be like, Slow hand Clap…ton. Get it?
Yeah, it’s not that awesome… but that’s why I heard Eric Clapton got the nickname “Slowhand.”
Just saw a commercial for Starbucks Blonde Roast coffee. The lady in the commercial said her father would make coffee in his auto-drip machine with only two scoops of coffee, and she didn’t like it, because it tasted like water. However, now that Starbucks has their Blonde Roast, he makes his coffee with six scoops like a normal person, and achieves the same taste. This made the lady in the commercial happy – that her father now uses more coffee to make it the way he likes it.
I swear, this commercial was just on AMC during The Shawshank Redemption.
Starbucks Blonde Roast. Use more for less.
UPDATE (2/15/2013): They put the commercial on YouTube finally, so now you can see it. It’s not awesome or anything… I just looked it up because someone found this post through Google, and I thought it should have more info… Also, the lady kind of looks like Sally Field, and that makes me want to watch Smokey and The Bandit. #truth
Colo. court rules against Black Hawk, saying bicycles are a state interest – The Denver Post.
Chalk one up for the good guys. Not that I’ll be riding my bike through Black Hawk anytime soon…
Torpedo Extra IPA | Sierra Nevada.
It’s what I’m drinking right now, for the Super Bowl, in hopes that the Niners have some sort of miracle in New Orleans… (they just scored again… marginally more interesting…)
I like this stuff. It’s hoppy, with a light, fruity aftertaste. It’s full-bodied, but deceptively light feeling, despite it being an extra IPA and going through two hoppings (I surmise from the afore-linked website). I’d say it’s “brighter” than Sierra Nevada’s flagship Pale Ale… I don’t know why I’d say this, but if you drank this, you’d understand.
Torpedo. Good name for a beer. This is fortunate, because it is also a good beer.
RS RATING: 4 out of 5 Bottlecaps
