Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • Give these high school kids a college scholarship: "One dressed as a banana and the other as a gorilla and, shockingly, the banana chased the gorilla across the football field." (Youtube clip.) Monkey humor is always genius.
  • I'm not sure what Fergie's "My Humps" was doing playing in the background at a high school football game.
  • I nailed a penny to a tree with a huge nail in the woods behind my house when I was a kid . One of these days I'm going to try and find it but I suspect it's been swallowed by the tree trunk.
  • "Most political positions are emotions wrapped with words."
  • I had a confusing dream last night. It started out being confronted by a gang member in Dallas and then morphed into me rooming with a black guy at the Dallas Cowboy's training camp as I was trying out for wide receiver. Talk about Crazy Head.
  • David Blaine is one weird guy. Now he's hanging upside down in Manhattan which seems a long way from, "Pick a card, any card."
  • A gal up at the courthouse claims that I can't say I "read" a book when I "only" listened to the audio version.
  • I've never watched Dancing With the Stars but I might since I've heard the very hot Kim Kardashian is on it this season.
  • NBC announcer Al Michaels once has a very small role playing a lawyer on Hawaii Five-0.
  • Sarah Palin is set to meet with Bono in New York today. I predict some awkward pauses.
  • I think my bathroom scale is broken. It fluctuates by four or more pounds per day.
  • A man who just happens to be black is at the top of the Country Music Charts. That's only the third time ever. Wise County demands recount - "wants every vote counted."
  • If you ever hit those ridges dug out on the shoulder of 287, it'll get your attention.
  • Is it more tragic when someone dies in the middle of the day in a traffic accident (as happened in Decatur yesterday) as opposed to dying in a similar car wreck at 2:00 in the morning?
  • I don't think TCU has a chance against Oklahoma this weekend. Unrelated college note: You can see a University of Texas horrific tight end injury from last week here (and I refuse to watch it.)
  • Despite the Google Street View van being in Decatur a few weeks back, the street view version of Decatur still isn't available on Google Maps.
  • I know at least two people that will TIVO a football game and begin watching it 45 minutes after it starts so as to skip through the commercials. Good idea.
  • The exit ramp from 380 eastbound going to 287 southbound in Decatur is poorly designed.
  • The sound of gloom on the horizon: Big Barnett Shale player "Chesapeake Energy said Monday that it will scale back its spending on drilling and development because of the sharp drop in natural gas prices since early July, a move that could be followed by other producers." Man, if we have a natural gas bust in Wise County, it'll be ugly. And a lot of empty motels.

David Blaine is HOT

It's because those people didn't know Darius Rucker was a black man. Now that you've outed him, he'll drop on the charts next week!

Good Lord!! Where is she from? "Smoking Hot" doesn't even do her justice. Good Lord!!

Holy Crap that had to hurt. I squenched so hard when I saw that I need to go pull the fabric from my chair out of my uh huh.

The liberal media is making a big deal out of McCain owning 13 vehicles.
My next door neighbor owns 9, I need some liberal guidance (that's a first!)
Am I supposed to hate on this guy, picket his home in protest, key all of them, just sit here and rock back and forth being jealous or what?

Anonymous said...

Who cares how many cars McCain owns!! Talk about the liberals pulling stuff out of their butt, jeez Wally. Let's worry about stuff that matters are we can start bringing up Gores yact, his electric bill, Clinton's home, Edwards home - girlfriend - baby, yadda, yadda, yadda. Washington needs to shut the hell up on both sides and let's get down to the "nut-cuttin" so to speak.

Blaine Irby - OUCH.

I saw the Girls Gone Wild bus tooling up 287 just south of Rhome the other day. Any ideas there?

Some of us wonder what would happen if you met a gang member in Dallas. I'm guessing you would represent him at some point.

Seems like Hootie would get a lot of redneck attention instead of Darius.

Just spotted something funny on Drudge.

Alan Greenspan is truly the one who got the wheels off in creating this mess we are in today.

He's coming out with a book on Monday. Let's all go buy it so we can see how not take the blame for anything and screw our own personal finances up by listening to his crap. What a joke! I hope his book tanks.

Think of what Presidents Greenspan ran the Fed under (Republicans and Democrats alike) then, look at what they are members of, including Greenspan and then you tell me. We are all being taken for a ride people.

Chesapeake is cutting back because of all the hundreds of millions they have spent on billboards, Tommy Lee Jones, Tracy Rowlett hosting their TV show, paying $185 million to DFW for the drilling rights, paying $18,000 to $25,000 an acre for rights when the going rate is about $300 to $1,000 an acre. They are the only producer that is not making money out there because of their look at us and our ten pounder spending.

Last time I posted on here I had seen the clip regarding the China/Iraq issue as the Chinesse had made a "DEAL" for OIL ! All without any casualty's I made a comment as I had in prior post about how organised they were!

Some had even commented how they were so impressed by the drummer's in the opening Olimpic games! I stated we are introuble and will get our ass's kicked if it comes down to fighting them!Any of this sound familiar?Some told me to go hide in my bunker others said I needed to get outside and step away from the Computor and "close the bag of Cheeto's"! I dont even like Cheeto's!

Some replies were wanting to know where I got my info?
I told of the gas ration certificits which had already been printed and distributed to stratigic locations! They do exsist they are Blue and green! Does that sound familiar,Any of this ring a bell yet?
Only two other poster's saw the clip regarding the China Iraq oil deal...I have never heard anything of it scnece!
WELL.... Did anyone catch the coment from A China Military official last night about 2 or 3 am?I dont know who he was or his rank...but i heard him Plain and CLEAR!
His comment went somthing along the lines like! Why would we(China) worry about your economy or Stockmarket problems? You in the U.S.A. own nothing as it is all owned in large by China or Japan even other foreighn country's!I say there is No,I repete No need to fear China or Japan come start a war and Blow things up cause big problems and making big mess! Simply call the DEBT or payment due and come collect what is owed! Waiting patently to see how stockmarket plays out simply! No I assure you no bombs or big fighting why destroy what we already own?We have in U.S. Currency more than 700 billion more than is what needed for U.S. Bail out of BAD DEBT and currnet Stock market situation! We have no problems such as these!
I didn go back to sleep after that remark! I aint one for sayin I said so...But well I said so! Oh and then tere is this. My friend out in Runaway Bay said that One stop had been out of fuel for a few days now and that the Shell staion had Run out of fuel yesterday! No fuel to be had @ either GAS station for 24 hrs ! However the Shell station did get regular fuel this A.M.

NOW for some poor Sap whom is always without fail getting berated and poked fun @ for his serious mis-spelling and scentence struturing MABEY I AINT SO STUPID AFTER ALL!

Tivo works for all programs, not just that dang ol' foosball. I avoid watching anything in real time if possible to skip thru the ads.

We should all start ignoring David Blaine (I got a head start years ago). Then maybe he will stop pulling lame stunts and... disappear!
~Rimshot~

The penny nailed to a tree is definitely swallowed up by now, but you should go check it out anyway, just in case there is anything showing.

Please, PLEASE post some of the pearls of wisdom from the shirtless one, Matthew McCon-con-con-a-hey in this month's Texas Monthly. Pure. Gold.

i've spoken about the men who told me about the Captains & the Kings, beginning about 30 years ago..aka Bilderbergers...these men predicted this very outcome for US taxpayers/citizens..they believed our government would be totally controlled by the world banks..we are. but it gets worse..guess what happens when we can't pay back our debts..??? put simply.. FORECLOSURE.just like 1929..X a million..sad but true..! more to follow....

Chesapeake is doing with natural gas what OPEC says it's going to do with oil. Both are doing it to drive up the price of their product and make more money in the end.

Speaking of "in the end", I think that's where Chesapeake is going to stick it to us with their actions, despite all those promo commercials and Tommy Lee Jones et al saying how great Chesapeake is and all they're doing, just for us!

You weigh everyday? Why? Isn't that kind of girlish of you?

Anonymous said...

so...if you begin watching the football game 45 minutes after it has already started...and skip the commercials..at what point will your tivo watching coincide with the actual real time program???

all people can really do at this point is to prepare yourself, your loved ones, and your neighbors..be prepared to survive if all the electricity goes off..think about how that one thing could and would change everybody's life..could you survive for a month..or more..? mtf..

food, water, medicines, necessities of life, this would be primary things..secondary..fuel, generators, batteries, tools..self defense..12 gauge shotguns, plenty ammunition..sad to say but if your neighbors aren't prepared they may become your first threat..will you give them your food, water, etc..??

when the plug gets pulled we will all be in the same boat..will we sink or will we survive..? remember being fore-warned is to be fore-armed. people should begin to consider this as a very real probability. who could be all that shocked if our system and country were to have a total economic collapse..the world is changing quickly..mtf....

I never ever watch anything in real time if I can help it at all (and with two TiVo tuners, I most certainly can help it). Especially sporting events. But I give it way more than 45 minutes -- like the commenter posted upthread, you'll catch up pretty quickly if that's all the lead time you allow. Get hip to it, Barry, and you'll never have to watch another hair-loss or wiener-helper commercial again!

-I agree with the gal up at the courthouse. It would be like me saying that I never smoked weed because "I didn't inhale".

-Kim Hodashian didn't look like a Ho last night, I almost didn't recognize her. Any who, she going to lose. That big ole' a$$ of hers will make her lose her balance and fall. That and tons of over-weight jealous women out there wont vote for simply because "they be hating"

-I miss my DVR.

"Barak Obama is being advised by the same people who got us out of the ditch in 1993," Senator Clinton said. "I think our ticket is well-equipped for handling the mess that they're going to inherit. Let's make no mistake about it: this is going to be one of the most difficult presidential transitions." source DRUDGE REPORT..Senator Clinton acts like this was all created by Bush/McCain..does anybody believe this..???

Just an FYI for you Decatur folk: 15 year old Katie Watson of Decatur brought 12 head of cattle to show at the Panhandle South Plains fair this week. She walked away with 8 first place ribbons; 2 second place and overall Grand Champion in the junior show. Find out more here:

A book predicting all of this gloom and doom was written on the island of Patmos around 90 AD. It's dead on clear up to predicting the next president and his term in office of only 42 months. (Rev. 13:5) I don't think Obama or ammunition and generators will solve the world's problems. They were solved 2,000 years ago by a carpenter. It's just a myth right? Tell me how it all turns out because I won't be here.

Hey Barry.....quick question for you....What college football team was the last team to beat OU in Norman???

So you don't have to look it up......

.....it wasn't Tech, it wasn't A&M, it wasn't USC, it wasn't Florida, it wasn't Ohio State.....the answer would be the Horned Frogs from TCU.

Whatcha think about that big boy?

I guess the football dream is a lot better than dreaming you are playing football in prison with people you have sentenced, and you are the "tight end".

The banana and the gorilla spent 16hours in jail, and they will face punishment from the school.

It was all funny until the banana copped an attitude. Nobody likes a bad banana.

Jarhead said...

TCU has actually beat OU the last two times they've played in Norman.

TCU by 35 in a game of nationally ranked powerhouses (I actually chuckled out loud when I wrote that).

In a strange twist of co-ink-i-dink, the Ann Richards Bears' next game is also against OU...

Am I the only one not really scared much by all the doom and gloom being pandered to?

Anonymous said...

245 and mr honcho..being prepared for catastrophic events makes as much sense as having insurance. it could well mean the difference in surviving or not. it's not like you have to go out and spend 10's of thousands of dollars..but having a few hundred dollars worth of water and non-perishable foods would always be a good idea..you use and replace fifo..first in..first out..got it..!!
