Random Friday Morning Thoughts

  • Fox 4 had a video of a truck crossing the median and crashing on the tollway yesterday. I'm fascinated by the car going in the opposite direction that missed death by a fraction of a second. (Still looking for video on the Internet which makes this bullet point completely useless until I find it.)
  • 73 now dead in the Jamaica police-gonna-get-drug-lord fight. That's a book or movie waiting to happen.
  • I used to love going to the Colonial golf tournament. Now I'm not sure I'll ever have the desire to go again.
  • The remake of the Karate Kid opens today. You know, that first was sappy yet pretty darn good.
  • A Mercedes, a cop shooting a gun, a passerby firing his weapon as well, an alley, the Stockyards, drugs, middle of the night? Sheesh, not a bad story.
  • Violent crowd fight at baseball game. The big guy with the fro needs to learn how to block a punch.
  • Wise County's Newark seems to have its wheels flying off as the city council will meet on a rare Friday night to "deliberat[e] in closed session regarding the city secretary, police chief, city police officer position and court clerk."
  • Had a buddy tell me he tried to start his own Random Thoughts but gave up after five days. "I don't know how in the world you do that," he told me. It ain't easy brother.
  • The creators of "Words With Friends" (which I've never played) were on The Ticket yesterday. It sounds like they are drowning in cash.
  • Weird that the Messenger never gave the name of the lady hit by a car while on her bicycle in Alvord yesterday.
  • The Los Angeles Times reporting yesterday that the hole in the gulf had been plugged was horrible journalism.
  • Anybody else see Fox 4's Fiona Gorostiza doing a So You Think You Can Dance audition last night on the news? Mercy.

Pic - She's fat. Not a good pic.

Jamaican movie waiting to happen - not sure I could handle 1.5 hours of Jamaican talk man.

Cop shooting - "The officer dodged the car and fired several times as the Mercedes continued north through the alley"..... - I really dont care about the dirtbag getting shot, but once the cop was out of harms way, why shoot???? I would have chased him down, then shot him....

Baseball fight - video is blocked; got another link???

Didn't see Fiona; can you post a link (if there is one)????

I'm not sure why someone who hates American Idol, where there is on occasion true talent, would watch something as inane as So You Think You Can Dance? Now THAT show is trash!

Somebody thinks today's girl is fat?! Please! I'm more concerned that she has one fat leg and one normal-sized leg

And I don't have a problem with an officer shooting at a perp if he fears for his life, even if it's after the fact. If somebody is willing to run down (or gun down) a cop, they're just as likely to kill any one of us

Man, talk about thunder thighs! That girl needs to be on a treadmill.

Are you people kidding me this chick is so hot. The hottest I have seen in a long time. I think she is a 10. If you really like those skinny no curves women then I guess you would not not her. Great pic Barry.

SHES HAWT! I used to work with that girl in Bridgeport, she'd wear that same outfit on casual fridays or when we were doing inventory in the warehouse.

I wish I could come visit that warehouse.

9:40 - a ten? She probably is ten.

Barry, shame on you!

10:30
I would say at least 20 to 25

Anonymous said...

She is probably in college, as it looks like a dorm room wall and sink. I agree with 10:30. Barry and all you other guys are too old to be drooling over children under 30 and young enough to be your daughters. But our opinions don't seem to matter much to dirty old men.

barry what happened? a very bad end to the week. chic is average at best and despite having a few nice thoughts and links they are few and far between. average day all around.

Children under 30!!!WTF?

Danny Boy said...

Hey 10:47, since I am in my 20's and you severly underestimated who you are speaking to, is it ok for me to drool? And I also didn't know that childhood extended all the way to 30 now. Maybe that is why our kids and younger generations seem so coddled, because you treat them like children all the way past college.

I appreciate your misguided and generic attempt at making others look dumb and perverted.

Let me guess, your kids moved back home after college? Do you still do their laundry and heat their Hot Pockets?

Yes, 11:17, under 30, as many of the men making sexual comments on this website are, I guarantee, too old for anyone under 30. I'd be willing to bet many of them have children in their 20s, or are at least old enough to do so. As a 50+ female, I find that offensive, as my daughter is in her 20s and I find it repulsive to consider than anyone over 35 or 40 would be looking at her in that way. They are old enough to stop thinking with their nether regions rather than with their brains.

11:29. No, Danny, my kids are independent and college-educated and live on their own. However, I do still consider anyone under 30 too young for these old men to drool over. You, on the other hand, are obviously not one of the older men I was referring to as the "boy" in your title is actually factual. If you're in your 20s you are a "boy" to me. But Barry and many of the others on here are way too old to be gawking at teens or young twenty-somethings. I know for a fact that many of them are 40-60 and that's just plain disgusting.

I am 24 I think she is a 10 and so hot

It's amazing how high some guys' standards get when evaluating the unattainable.

My Utah sources say Gary Coleman is about to punch out to that big sydicated sitcom in the sky.

Journalism no longer involves accuracy. So the story is fine.

Proudly Heterosexual Man said...

12:00 Let me set you straight.

As a 50+ female, you should have figured out by now that men like attractive women. Women in their 20s are more likely to be attractive. That's the way it is. That's the way it has always been. That's the way it will always be. Period.

You may "find that offensive", but that's like saying that you find cell division offensive. Biology doesn't need your approval.

Since your daughter is in her 20s, you should understand that men look at her. The more attractive she is, the more they look. And you find it repulsive? Get a clue.

The instant I stop thinking with my nether regions...shoot me.

Ummm... to the disgruntled 50YOF... Lighten up Francis. Ladies can be hot, from 20yo to 60 yo. And a guy can admire them and find them attractive. End of story.

And to 8:37am and 1:05pm.... Ghhhheeey.

2:14pm... right there with ya.

Where would drunk guys be without a chubby little, mouthy woman to plow in to them when they 'rumble'?

Anonymous said...

Fat? You must like the body of a 13 yo boy or sumpin.

Hey 50 yof, get a life grandma. Older men like younger ladies as well as the older ones. period. End of story.

I'm over 50 also, but in the words of the infamous junk dealer, "I may be too old to do pushups, but I'll never be too old to chin."

Why is it that "God protected me" whenever a truck narrowly misses killing me after jumping a barrier? Really? Well, if God jumped in and shoved the truck just enough that I didn't get creamed, shouldn't God be making sure trucks don't jump medians in the first place?

I just returned from a drinking afternoon at Colonial. Been going for 40 years. Saw a hole in one by Ben Crane on 13, amazing!

But Mom you let her dress that way , now you wonder why anybody looks at her that way. I bet she now what see is doing getting dressed up like that all kidof slutty.
