Seriously? I Mean Seriously!?!?

Two consecutive spam emails in my box within 30 seconds of each other this afternoon, just after I placed an on-line order for a replacement for my Hydro Floss teeth cleaner.

I like having good teeth, and I like having a clean mouth. Does this automatically place me into some geezer email hopper where I will now be receiving tons of directed ads for all sorts of goodies?

Geeez, just when I thought I would scream if I got one more erectile dysfunction ad or a penis lengthening device...

Of the Olympics and Picabo

Some of you may remember my post about being an Olympic geek, and of my favorite athlete Picabo Street. In that post I recall an old commercial that I could never locate that feature Picabo recovering from her devastating knee injury, and racing in the hospital.

Well the electronic world is an amazing place, because I received an email out of nowhere from a nice lady named Carly that had found the commercial after a search brought her to my blog. She was kind enough to send me a link, so I wanted to share it with you all.

That 30 seconds says everything about her you would want to know.

What I Laugh At While Driving Around

I mean when I am not laughing at how stupid some of the conservative response to the passing of the health bill is...

What I am talking about is the wonderful radio advertisements for the Duluth Trading Company. This is a company that makes, among other things, work clothing. Work clothing that makes those old Sears "Toughskin Jeans" seem like chiffon...

Their website has all the links to their TV and radio spots, but I think the radio ads are just funny as hell. Here are my favorites:

Or maybe this is just because I love guy humor?

Bad Tat Tuesday! The Kid Edition!

No matter how hard they try, I have never seen a portrait of a kid transfer to a tat that looked worth a damn. I think it's a nice idea, especially if you have lost a child, but maybe a picture in your wallet is better.

Bonus points for the proximity to your nip!

The one on the right... Wow, just wow.

Probably the best of the bunch.

Turned a baby pic into some demon out of hell!

I can't help but think very old Chinese guy.

And we have a winner! That will live in my nightmares for weeks!

I have already lost a friend today

Just because of last nights passing of the Health Care bill. Somebody that I tend to argue with but always respected because I believe that he doesn't have evil in his heart, just tends to listen to more people to the right. As I have grown through the years my beliefs have shifted more to the liberal side of the scale, but I still consider myself an independent. I am willing to listen to somebody who has a different opinion, as long as it is not born of evil, and comes from a source that isn't Glenn Beck or Rush.

But this morning at the gym he went off on me (I guess I am his whipping boy) about how this is the end of our society. Seriously, "the end of our society".

Followup comments that were all tendered without waiting for any of my answers or opinions were amazing also.

"This buffoon is going to bankrupt our country".
"Socialism has never worked in any other country".

and my personnel favorite,

"This is just more incentive for people not to try and work".

This is all out of a guy that I really like, but it seems he has gone completely off the tracks into bizarro world. As he was ranting I just stopped my machine and climbed off, telling him I can't listen to his shit.

So for any of my other former friends who wonder where we will ever pay for this from, I have some suggestions:

And I am one of the most pro military people you will ever meet, but even I say enough is enough.

Of Frosty and Pitching Decks

I did a post for Veterans day awhile back where I told you about a friend I lost while I was in the Navy. Here is the short version of that story:

When I entered the Navy It was 2 years after the war had ended, and I met a lot of guys who served during the war. One stands out to me, and I always remember him during memorial day and veterans day. He was the only friend I lost during my 4 years in the Navy. He was Lt Commander MacDonald, call sign Frosty. He flew A6 Intruders in the war, and later switched to S3 Vikings and I had the pleasure to control him on several occasion during anti-sub operations.

Frosty was the CAG, or Commander of the Air Group and he was also from Colorado. He grew up in Vail, so when we met up off ship we got along well, even though he was an officer and I was an enlisted guy. Frosty flew in Nam on several missions, having been shot down twice and eventually rescued. He told a story of hiding in a large bush waiting for a rescue helo while Viet Cong were probing the bushes all around him looking for him. He said a bayonet passed just in front of his head and then right behind him as he laid there hunkered down praying for rescue.

They moved on eventually and his helo found him and pulled him out. His second time shot down he made it out over the gulf of Tonkin and ejected into the water. He was picked up shortly without any problems.

After surviving all that, he was killed on a simple exercise in the Indian Ocean. The sea state had deteriorated into a nasty mix of wind and huge waves and the Kitty Hawk was recovering all it's aircraft. Despite being low on fuel, he orbited while the rest of his squadron were recovered before him. That was typical of him, leading by example. On final approach the back end of the carrier was heaving up and down due the enormous waves and he was matching it by going up and down with it. The carrier pitched up and stayed up on the wave as he dropped.

He couldn't correct fast enough and flew right into the back end of the Kitty Hawk.

So here's to you Frosty, I hope you are someplace better now.

I told all that again so that I can show you two videos that I came upon. They are part 1 and 2 of a PBS documentary series "Carrier" - Rites of Passage. The videos are both 10 minutes long, and well worth the time to view them. I didn't catch the name of the guy that took the place of the pilot on regular rotation to go up and fly the tanker to make sure all the other pilots had enough fuel to get back down on the carrier. But he reminded me so much of Frosty that it brought a lot of that stuff back.

Night recovery on a carrier that is really moving like the Nimitz is in these videos is one of the most stressful things a pilot goes through. They did a study on some of the guys who flew in Nam, and it showed they stayed pretty steady while flying over Nam, doing their bombing mission, getting into a dogfight, then their heart rate went through the roof when they came back to recover in the dark.

Bad Tat Tuesday Rides Again!!

If it's Tuesday, that can only mean one thing. You survived yet another Monday and are ready to celebrate by way of seeing what you were smart enough not to permanently place on your body.

This weeks collection has no theme, with the exception that every episode has, poor quality or poor choices.

Strap in and please keep that bar down in it's locked position for the duration of the ride...

This artwork is pretty good, but the human eyes and elephant nose combo is freaking me out a touch.

Happy Halloween right back at ya! It took me awhile to see past the tats, multiple piercings, and such to get up to her head. Check out that bad racing stripe of shaved head going on.

She is certainly somebodies princess, just not mine. Or daddies. Or most other peoples...

That is some pretty amazing detail, unfortunately on a canvas that is going to go south in a hurry.

Caption this. Trust me, I'm a professional.

One that I have put up on this blog many moons ago has shown up in a demotivator print!

Lots of donuts help to make Buddha bigger!

Commit to the nut!

I don't know why, but I don't seem to mind this one.

Multiple views of the scary eye creature just to help you sleep better!

And finally, another guest tattoo send in by Eric from delusionalsorrow. Go check Eric out!

Monday Morning Madness

Here is some random wackadoodal crap to get your week started off right. Just think that as you head on out the door to work, you aren't any of these people. Then things should seem so much better.

No need to thank me, it's ll part of the service!

Which reminds me. I haven't been getting any tips lately...

I loved this!

Lion ball checker. What, was Elephant prostate stimulator taken?

This is quite a bit like my retirement plan.

I want whatever he is on.

Matching sleeve and sock. Jumbo is bringing it!

Bwaaaa ha ha ha... Oh wait, that isn't funny...

That is the look of a kid that gets in a fight each recess.

Needs no caption.

Sometimes all it takes is a gentle breeze, so this isn't exactly fair.

I dub thee "WarFace".

I imagine this is right out of a lot of folks childhood worst nightmare.

I don't know what the translation is, but I am betting that at least one of those words is "pedophile".

Ouch! I just pass them along folks...

A Scotsman walks into the bedroom with a sheep on a leash and says....

"Honey, this is the cow I make love to when you have a headache."

The wife, lying in the bed reading a book, looks up and says, "If you weren't such an idiot, you'd know that's a sheep, not a cow."

The guy replies, "If you weren't such a presumptuous bitch, you'd realize I was talking to the sheep."

Happy Birthday Skyler!

My young man turns 19 today. That can't be possible, that would make me (shudder) older!

Grandpa sent some new Washington Huskies wear.

Mom and Dad got him a new DVD player.

Aunt Karen and Uncle Steven sent him a new tape, which was his favorite!
