Start With Wizards End With Faeries!

Posted: September 22, 2016 by veeshir in Random Crap

I just realized there’s football on tonight. Formerly called, “American Football”, now called “Anti-American Football”.

mcmahon 2

Since I’m a giving type, I’ll give you something to watch instead of AAF or one of our cities destroying itself.

First you can watch some weird pics as you listen to Sabbath’s best song, The Wizard. Despite the wizardish pics, the Wizard was a heroin dealer. Smack was what made 70s music so good.

I dig Sabbath. They’re like 80s heavy metal except good.


I used to live near Rosendale, NY and went there for their festivals in the 70s . There was a fixture at all festivals in Rosendale. The one, the only, Tiny Tim! Hell, he was known to show up at weddings and random parties held there. My sister was at a wedding when he showed up and started playing, they all thought it was weird but hey, it was Tiny Tim!


There used to be a bar in Rosendale, I can’t remember the name, but I saw Twisted Sister there a bunch of times, back when they did Zeppelin and other covers. They were really good until they started doing their own music. Just be grateful I didn’t post one of their songs.

The reason I can’t remember the bar’s name is because they used to have “nickel night”. Bar drinks cost a nickel from 7 until the band opened at 10 (last call is 4am). There was a bust a night in the parking lot. At least one. When they sold it, it became a pharmacy so not much difference except no alcohol.


For a decent use of the ukelele not involving a falsetto or topless hotties in grass skirts, I give you the Ukelele Orchestra of Great Britain, of all places, playing the theme from The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

Just pray Hollywood does not butcher that movie in a remake.

You can listen to the Worst Song In The 70s Not Involving Disco!!!!!! while you read about Kung-Fu nuns bicycling across the Himalayas to protest/stop slavery and human trafficking.


The worst part about that song? It was played approximately every 13.4 minutes on every radio station, including nascent talk radio.

Hey, be grateful I didn’t play “Convoy”.

If you want to baffle your kids, go here and get a nice coffee table as you’re watching their vid.



I promised you faeries, I’m giving you faeries. Did you know they wear boots?


Yeah, I got nothing. I could opine on the destruction of the rule of law, Live! On TV!!!!, whether Hillary! and Obama egging mostly-peaceful protesters being mostly peaceful, Obama admin telling judges to go screw, I could have put a vid of Koskinen telling Congress they’re useless and nobody respects them, but I decided to just go with silliness.


I couldn’t find any topless ukelele grass skirt honeys. Sorry.



Me tubin’ Too.

First, something I can’t decide if it’s funny or endy or just pathetically terrifying.

When I played that, it had a Trump ad across the middle. I’ll call that a win.

Which leads to a comment I posted at Paco’s that made me laugh. I’m posting it here to make me laugh again.

RebeccaH, good point.

Starting with the ’96 election, the candidates have become progressively (pun intended) worse and worse.

If you plot the trajectory on a graph, you find that by 2024 the candidates will be a Papa John’s pizza running against Wednesday.


Next, some gunny stuff.

I must have been about 5 years too young for this awesomeness.

I still want one.


So, anybody up for a game of pool?

I’d need to borrow a 9mm, my stuff just blows the shit out of the table.


Coupla reposts

Good question, good intro, good reminder.


And of course, my favorite Steve Lee song, but he has a bunch of awesome ones.

In AZ, they have HOV-2, I wonder if this’ll count.


Can I get a Yee Motherfucking Haw?

Is it caturday yet?


I had an Ebiscu Muscats vid ready, but as I watched it, I realized it just wasn’t as hot as Banana Mango High School.

But this one was queued on the side, so I figured I would post it as a public service to the Chinese who seem hell-bent on getting into a war with the Chinese.

We are not nearly afraid enough of the Japanese.

What the hell is going on in that vid eo? There’s something about it that almost makes sense but it’s just out of reach.

I mean, you can almost see it, and then a bunch of bones floats by and a huge black guy in knickers starts dancing.

I just find it hard to believe that even two atomic bombs can erase centuries of being badasses so they’re a powderkeg waiting to get off…go off.

What A Tool!

Posted: July 6, 2016 by veeshir in L.L.A.P.H., Random Crap

No, not Obama. Jeez, can’t a guy do a non-political post?

So my ex brother-in-law (sad story, I think my sister went a little crazy), moved out of his house and he is a throwing stuff out sort of guy, so I took some tools that my step-father left in his garage, I took the saw and the hatchet because you can always use a handsaw and a hatchet. I took the plane because it looked cool.

First, we have a hatchet.


Pretty cool.


This plane looks very old. At first I thought it was homemade but after checking out the saw (below), I have to wonder if the hatchet and plane are older than I thought.


Dont call me adze

I’m not sure how old it is. It looks homemade but it also looks very competently done. I didn’t think it was that old until I checked the saw.


On the other side it has HJ (my stepfather Harry’s initials, also his father’s)

Walter Cresson saw

I didn’t notice the medallion in the handle at the edge of the blade, my buddy asked, “Hey, what’s that?”

Walter Cresson

That says, “Walter Cresson IXL Phila’da”

Walter Cresson was an early Philadelphia saw maker in the 1840s and 50s who was bought out by Henry Disston some time before the Civil War.

That saw is freaking old. It must be Harry’s fathers, unless Harry’s grandfather had the same initials.


One more tool.

Her Natural Habitat: Above The Law!

Her Natural Habitat: Above The Law!

Okay, maybe a little politics.


Got my car. The new guy said he’s working on something else so I have to wait another 3 1/2 weeks.

It’s sucks that something that I overspent on just to make me happy is making me fucking bullshit angry.

Another day, another minitrue outlet obfuscating the issue.

Fortunately for Hillary — but not the Democrats — heedless incompetence is not a federal crime.

Yeah, see as Comey said, it is a crime.

They have to keep history straight

Back in the days of Whitewater and witch-hunting independent prosecutor Kenneth Starr

Yeah, and he kept finding witches.

If this were a normal election, the Democrats would deserve to take their lumps for sticking with …, the Clinton tradition of entitlement might rightly become an overarching issue

But it’s not a normal election, it’s the election where they need to get Hillary! elected.

They just can’t help it. Even in an article supposedly bashing Hillary!, it’s a call to arms for her.


There’s an ironclad law that if she’s hot, a woman who has sex with underage kids will not go to jail.

A Georgia mom avoided jail time after she allegedly had sex with a teenager at a booze- and drug-fueled party that included a few games of naked Twister….

started playing naked Twister in the living room with a group of the teens before she left the game to have sex with an 18-year-old in the bathroom.

The sordid tale wasn’t done there, however, because after the tryst in the bathroom, Lehnardt was apparently still “horny,” so she brought out her sex toys and began to pleasure herself in front of the gathered teenagers…

The group then got naked and got into Lehnardt’s hot tub and continued to party.


Hot. I bet a dollar the judge and prosecutor were beating off while listening to the testimony.

This part does leave us with a question.

she fell asleep but was awakened to find her daughter’s well-endowed 16-year-old boyfriend having sex with her.

Did two rapes occur? The woman having sex with a kid and the kid having sex with a passed out woman. I wish they had prosecuted both. That would have been funny.


Speaking of rapes, who coulda seen this coming?

Police in Sweden are investigating five reported rapes and nearly forty instances of groping at two music festivals over the weekend.

“Foreign young men“ were blamed…


So who coulda seen it coming? Anybody paying attention.

This should end well.

…Sweden. Because the government decided to offer residence permits to every Syrian who requests one, it’s estimated that by the end of 2014 another 80,000 will have come.

Well, not so much end well as make Denmark and Finland laugh their asses off.


You know Denmark and Finland are laughing their asses off.


In regard to yesterday, the fix was in.

Here’s just one but it appears EVERYONE knew that though Hillary committed crimes way worse than those of David Petraeus, she would be cleared.

The media was so confident they wrote the stories ahead of time and posted them as soon as the announcement was made,


Huh, funny that. A few years ago I would have said that was just paranoia, now? Spot on.



A Red Hammer

Posted: June 18, 2016 by veeshir in Random Crap

Just like the question about the colored tool, many (most?) people react the same same way to the concept of infinity.

I really like thinking about infinity, I’ve been fascinated by it since I first learned of it.

Plenty of people deny the concept itself. When I mention that, many people often think I’m talking about uneducated types (Tell them it’s turtles all the way down!), but then other people come in and start talking about some hypothetical math and the surface of a sphere and how infinity is impossible.

People do not like infinity. This guy seems to think it’s not possible.

He has 3 questions.

1. Can a number that is finite but very large substitute for infinity?

Depends on who is doing the calculations. If you’re’s an engineer, you could use 10^100 and that would probably be good enough. If you’re a mathematician or a physicist, maybe but probably not.

He writes this

Consider a hypothetical hotel with a countably infinite number of rooms, all of which are occupied. Can it accommodate 1,000 new guests without increasing the number of guests in any of the occupied rooms?


What is “countably infinite”? I’m gonna assume it’s a term by someone who’s afraid of infinity. By definition, ‘infinity’ is not countable. No matter how high you count, you can always count higher. There just aren’t names for some numbers. I’ve named 10 to the 6 trillion (a one with 6 trillion zeroes), a veeshir so if you ever count that high, make sure you use the proper nomenclature.

But if you have an infinite number of rooms, you could add a veeshir more guests and you would have enough rooms for each one  to have an infinite number of rooms. That’s how it works. If you have an infinite number of cars and every 10th car is red, you have the same number of cars as red cars, infinity.

Next question

2. What if there are physical limits to the smallest measurable amount of space?

Umm, what if this question made sense? He mentions the planck length (where quantum physics instead of newtonian physics works) but that’s not related. Now, if you’re going to say the smallest measurable length, you’re going to have to specify the technology. No matter how small a thing is, it can be smaller. If you make 10^-6 trillionth (veeshir^-1) of an inch a rihseevlength, what is 1/2 a rihseevlength? All you are doing is the same as infinity the other way. Now, you might not be able to measure it accurately until your technology is seriously advanced, but you can certainly write 10^-googol inches.

This one’s my favorite

3. How sharp is a geometric focus in the real world?

A more pertinent question: How tall is Bugs Bunny in the real world?

Both are equally valid.

A geometric focus is a mathematical concept, much like infinity and zero. It has no dimensions, by definition. Just as a point has no dimensions. Deal with it.

I say that if you fly at the speed of light (minus a smidgeon) that way (points up at an angle of 43.84 degrees from a tangent line on the Earth going exactly east from Niskayuna, NY) for veeshir to the veeshir years you would still have an infinite distance to travel ahead of you. If there’s something blocking you, what’s on the other side? Don’t talk about the surface of a sphere to me, I live in 3d land, not Flatland.

What I think bothers people the most is how insignificant we are if you think about infinity.

If the universe is 14 billions years old (or whatever they’re saying this year), what was going on 15 veeshir years ago? How about 15 veeshir years in the future?

Will anybody 75 trillion years from now even care that I lived? Well, you. I’m sure they’ll still remember me. I’m planning on being deified after my death.

8 years ago, when Hillary was going against our soon-to-be God-President, we were presented images like this


POTUS Of The Damned!

POTUS Of The Damned!

and this

She'll Eat Your Soul

She’ll Eat Your Soul

Now, of course, she’s going against the Next Hitler, so we see stuff like this.

Golden Cow


Click the link, there are two vids that I can’t embed and they’re not on Youtube. They really should read the Bible. More, specifically, Exodus on the subject of Golden Cows.


This election is going to be……

I still can’t get the right adjective for what I expect, but I don’t think any incidental funny will outweigh all the vicious, violent, frustratingly-dishonest endy.


I drove to NY this week, there has to be an ocean in the way for me to deal with the assholes at the TSA.

I was going to visit a friend on the way but when I called he said he was going to NY as well so I picked him up instead. He was going to take the train but now he’s just taking it back home.

On the drive from IL to NY I discovered he was his southern IL county’s Dem treasurer, had run for office as a Dem and an ardent Hillary! supporter.

He started harping on the problems of GOP disunity when I asked him about the problems of the Dems. He was much less animated about that subject. He was pretty mad at Bernie’s peeps because he thought they’d be unfaithful to Hillary!. They gave county Dem money to help Hillary! get elected but they only did stuff like bring some crappy food for Bernie’s campaigns and demanded that they be allowed to speak, which speak involved telling them that everybody loved Bernie but they really needed to get behind the Golden Cow when the general election happened. He said the speaker was booed regularly when they tried that gambit.

The conversation was pleasant and not angry or anything as I didn’t feel like arguing stupidities for 18 hours, but I thought it occasionally pretty funny.

At one point I said that if Hillary wasn’t indicted the rule of law was absolutely dead in America. He nodded knowingly and agreed that if Hillary was indicted the rule of law was dead. He was very surprised when I explained I had said the opposite of what he had heard. Shocked even.

My personal favorite moment was when he brought up corrupt Chicago pols, I said, “Chicago is known for pizza, corrupt politicians and gangsters.” He laughingly agreed.

I said, “You know, Obama is not a pizza.”

I thought I had a flat tire the THUD was so loud.

I never would have forgiven myself if I had not taken that straight line and knocked it over the fence for the game-winning field goal. 2 points!

First, I love the URL, it’s wasted as the people who think gun-free zones are actually gun-free are impervious to reality.

Shooting stats in gun-free Chicago are messed up.

Shot & Killed: 61
Shot & Wounded: 335
Total Shot: 396
Total Homicides: 64

That’s May, 2016.  In gun-free Chicago.

I love this graphic


Don’t get me wrong, I don’t love what it’s showing, I love how it’s shown and the title. Chalkie. Heh.

Check out the whole thing, it’s chock full of messed up stuff in an unholy alignment of gun-free stupidity and the Ferguson Effect.

Coupla unrelated things.

Nother thing.

Recall I was all happy about my 79 Caballero


Now I’m sorta happy and pretty unhappy.

I got it at Ideal Cars in Apache Junction, AZ.

Don’t buy anything from those scumbag assholes.

It didn’t have a spare, I noticed a few days after I bought it, they claimed they were going to get me one but finally, after  few weeks of calling them every few days, I got one myself (I also had to get a jack and lug wrench), I know I should have checked, but who thinks of a spare tire when you’re looking at a car? I actually got a Krieger that matched the REVolution wheels, but I didn’t like buying stuff that should have been in it.The stock jack is crap (according to the ‘tubes) so I got a floor jack and a 4-way lug wrench.

I also didn’t realize that the wheels on the Caballero matched the wheels on my Mustang (also pictured), except the Mustang has 18″ while the Caballero has 16″ (upped from the stock 14″), that’s kind of cool.

I did check the oil before I bought it, it looked decent and it was full, and there were no leak stains under it.

Turns out, it had bad rings and bearings so it burned 5 quarts of oil after 2,000 miles. It had a 1,500 mile, 2 week warranty.

The reason I’m sorta happy, and only sorta unhappy, at being ripped off by some scumbag car dealer is because the body is very tight and I got it cheap, so I called Summit and I have a 430hp/480ft/lbs of torque, 383 Stroker Crank crate engine (with a 750 Holley Carb) on the way.

I’ve wanted an El Camino for a long time, now I have a very tough one. Well, a Caballero, but the only differences are the nameplate stuff.
