The Watering Hole, Wednesday, February 18, 2015: Hump Day!

Someone said climate change deniers don’t know the difference between weather & climate. But if you ask them, they will tell you that they do know the difference: weather is if you’re going to have sex. Climate is what happens when you do. Abstinence Only sex education is prevalent amongst True Christians. So are an unprecedented number of immaculate conceptions. Sarah Palin was asked to host a return of that old game show, “What’s my Line?” She declined because she thought it was a trick question. Ted Cruz wants more border guards on the U.S. – Canadian border. He claims he’s proof positive there are crazy people in Canada wanting to come to the U.S. Last time around, Mitt Romney came in second in numerous Republican Primaries, to capture the nomination and come in second to Barak Obama. This time, Mitt is not running, with the hopes that he’ll come in first in 2016. Obama is set to approve the Keystone Pipeline, if Congress makes two minor modifications. Instead of running north-south and piping oil, he wants it to go east-west and pipe snow. Michelle Obama is hinting at running for president in 2016. It’s hard to tell if she’s serious, or just wants to see the talking heads at Fox explode on the air. Koch  Brothers say if they don’t get their Keystone Pipeline, they’ll buy France, just out of spite.

  1. I have a Dutch acquaintance who wonders why the U.S. Navy wasn’t involved in the Benga Zee fighting in Libya!😀

  2. I will support the east-west pipeline if the western end puts all the snow on James Inhofe’s house in Oklahoma.

  3. proof positive there are crazy people in Canada wanting to come to the U.S.

    Any Canadian actually wanting to come south to the US must be crazy.

  4. Sarah Palin was asked to host a return of that old game show, “What’s my Line?” She declined because she thought it was a trick question
    She’d be better at hosting the game show ‘What’s my Grift’!

  5. From the “they have to be fucking kidding” file.

    First. The anatomy of the finger wag and why it proves Obama is a secret Muslim.

    Then. FAUX”News” freaks display fatal levels of hypocrisy and God still won’t smite them.

    • Wait a minute, don’t some sports stars do that one finger thing as a way to give credit to God for their talent or fortune. You mean they’re all Muslims?

  6. If Michelle Obama were to run for president in 2016 or at any other point that I’m still alive and breathing, she has my vote! She has, after all, more gray matter than can be cumulatively found in the millions of heads that will explode the moment she announces her candidacy.

      • So, when I don’t wear my seat belt to go four blocks down the street to the Dollar store, but always wear it anywhere else, what does it mean that I believe?

    • If this bill becomes law, I want Obama to declare that Mississippi be disqualified from receiving federal highway funds. They would be endangering citizens from other states who drive on the same roads as these non-CDL-licensed drivers.

      Furthermore, because of the Full Faith and Credit Clause of the Constitution, would neighboring states be required to honor these improperly licensed drivers? Can they take a field trip to New Orleans in one of these buses? Or some attraction in Florida? The interstate ramifications are incredible.

        • Moses is the one who went up the mountain to talk to God. You know, the guy who created the Universe and everything in only 6 24-hour days, but took 40 days to carve ten commandments into two stone tablets…..

  7. Musk: Texas a “Leading Candidate” for Hyperloop Track

    Entrepreneur Elon Musk announced Thursday that he wants to build a “test track” for his idea for a futuristic high-speed transportation system called the Hyperloop, adding that Texas is “the leading candidate” to host the track.

    Musk’s Hyperloop concept involves transporting passengers via pods in above-ground tubes that move as fast as 800 mph. The system quickly proved to be a polarizing concept when Musk introduced the idea in 2013, with some praising it as visionary and others deriding it as wildly impractical.

    Let’s start with the Republican Congress members, let them be the crash test dummies for the initial phase of development.

  8. Gas prices are the lowest in a decade, so oil workers strike, trains carrying crude derail and explode, and a refinery explodes. The invisible hand strikes again? Prices are going back up.

    • “Dah-da-dah, dah-da-da-da-daaaah!”

      it looses something without the melody, doncha think?

      On the other hand, it’s amazing our space program is built on the foundation of a failed sci-fi tv series.

  9. Pretty impressive performance in the final round of Wheel of Fortune last night. Pat gave the wheel a final spin and with no letters showing, the first player guessed “T”. This is what he saw (substitute a blank for ‘x’):

    xxxxxxxxxxxx
    xxTxx

    He got it! Can you (assuming you didn’t already see it)?
