|May-16-17|| ||HeMateMe: Lindsay's nickname in high school on Long Island was "boobs."|
|May-17-17|| ||perfidious: <zed....The guy with the goatee is Dizzy Gillespie, one of the inventors of bebop....>|
He could play a little.
|May-17-17|| ||WannaBe: <Z> thanks for those links, what you didn't know, was that Dizzy was charged extra $30 for the over sized carry-on. (Hey, those were big money back then).|
And thanks for showing the definite proof that Venus landing was faked.
|May-19-17|| ||zanzibar: I guess a little lipstick and a new haircut would make anyone a little more attractive:|
|May-19-17|| ||zanzibar: That, and getting sprung!
|May-19-17|| ||HeMateMe: how does a tranny end up in the army, in the first place? Seems an odd path...|
|May-19-17|| ||zanzibar: Transgender, not tranny, I think.
And Obama saved the US a goodly amount of money for the expense of transistioning:
<WASHINGTON — Army Pvt. Chelsea Manning, the national-security leaker and transgender soldier, will lose her entitlement to military health care benefits under the terms of the sentence that President Obama commuted, according to the Army.
Obama’s commutation Tuesday will allow Manning to leave the Army’s prison at Fort Leavenworth on May 17, about six years before she would have been eligible for parole. The Army has been providing her with treatment for gender dysphoria, including hormone treatments.
She had been a candidate for gender-reassignment surgery, which would have been paid for under the Pentagon’s new policy for transgender troops.>
|May-19-17|| ||HeMateMe: whatever. that boy/girl fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down. She should go the full Monty and get breast implants, maybe get her plumbing fixed, too. Brucie got it done this year, I hear.|
|May-19-17|| ||zanzibar: Well, it's nice to keep "straight" the difference, if you know what I mean.|
There once was a time when society didn't blow proportion so out of proportion, even in Hollywood...

|May-19-17|| ||zanzibar: I think Chelsea could find a place in this line-up:|
|May-19-17|| ||zanzibar: With the right set of shoes, of course.
|May-19-17|| ||HeMateMe: I wonder what Chel Clinton, she of the blue eyes and blonde hair (like Manning) things of him using her name? Surely he took the name because of her?|
|May-19-17|| ||zanzibar: I don't know about that <HMM>.|
Maybe Chelsea got the name from the same place Chelsea (or rather Hillary) did:
Blame those damned Canadians!
|May-20-17|| ||HeMateMe: Well, I'm thinking that for a guy BM's age, the president's daughter was in the news more than the pop star, who had already done her best work by the time Manning was born.|
|May-20-17|| ||HeMateMe: maybe not the best way to sell kid's toys?
the amazing body of Emily Ratakowski
|May-20-17|| ||Retireborn: <HMM> That's from the Blurred Lines video, isn't it? I have a blurred(!) recollection of it, but my impression was that they weren't selling toys :)|
|May-20-17|| ||HeMateMe: oh geez, I went to utube and looked up the video (unrated version). Can they really show that on MTV these days? I must be getting older...|
|May-20-17|| ||Retireborn: LOL. I thought it was OK, they all seemed to be enjoying themselves. That sheep thing is a bit weird though, isn't it?|
|May-20-17|| ||zanzibar: <"The bane of my existence">|

I'm sure <hmm> has some videos from his college days which he wishes never strayed from the dark web!
|May-21-17|| ||HeMateMe: <I'm sure <hmm> has some videos from his college days >|
I remember living in a fraternity house and the girlfriend of one of the members was told that someone in the ice cream store across the street, a full block away from the frat house had used the pay phone there (no cell phones back then) to call the police to report that people were smoking pot on the roof of the building. Well, it WAS a nice warm day...no cell phone cameras either.
A friend of mine went to law school and his first job after that was as an assistant prosecutor in a small town. He told me the cops would demand that an individual, say a college kid, caught with half ounce of pot ($20 back then) be given a two year prison term. That is, they wanted my friend to ask the judge in the case for a two year sentence. my college bud refused to do that kind of thing so they put him on parking tickets and stuff like that, the most mundane crap possible. He ended up quitting the legal profession and does something else, now.
This frat did raunchy things like make people drink until they barfed, during hazing week, which can really be dangerous, though nothing ever happened to our pledges.
Those are some of the things I remember, but no videotape, no cell phone cams back than. Nowadays if you scratch your balls in public it's on Facebook in two minutes and Erin Burnett calls you...Out Front!
|May-21-17|| ||zanzibar: <hmm> it's a shame all the collateral damage the war on drugs inflicted.|
And the unfair way such damage was meted out.
* * * * *
I guess I should do the etymology of "meted" next, but let's catch up with "bane":
Old English bana "killer, slayer, murderer, a worker of death" (human, animal, or object), also "the devil,"
from Proto-Germanic *banon, cognate with *banja- "wound"
(source also of Old Frisian bona "murderer," Old Norse bani "death; that which causes death," Old High German bana "murder," Old English benn "wound," Gothic banja "stroke, wound"),
from PIE root *gwhen- "to strike, kill, wound" (source also of Avestan banta "ill").
Sense of "that which causes ruin or woe" is from 1570s.
I guess now we know where Steve Bannon got his name from - and where SNL got their material in turn:
|May-21-17|| ||HeMateMe: I had never heard of Bannon until Trump got elected. I don't follow politics that closely, especially the arch conservative groups.|
what exactly IS Bannon's job, anyway? Reichsfuhrer of propaganda, like Goebbels?
I can't believe that blue collar Americans are still happy with Trump. What can they possibly see in that guy, other than hollow promises?
Here's a regular fellow, who kept the country on the straight and narrow for eight years:

While your “Great Society” would have less incarceration if we legalized crime.
What would your gang members do for profit?
Have you forgotten the legs, and kneecaps, you've broken?
“Illegality” is what rings the register.
|May-22-17|| ||zanzibar: <dice> followups over on Rogoff...|
|May-24-17|| ||HeMateMe: This fellow Nishi is 24 years old.
He's a star in Japanese 'midnight' movies. Apparently there's an older woman/boy dynamic that a lot of the fans find exciting.
