About that proposed blogger law in FL

that would require anyone blogging about those pricks in power to register with the state... easy solution in four steps:

1. Get with a blogger outside FL.

2. Send them the post and have them publish it under a fictitious "guest blogger" name.

3. Add a disclaimer, something like "The opinions in this post don't necessarily reflect those of the host of this blog. We are publishing it as a public service to a blogger in Florida who can't do it from there because those pricks in power don't believe in free speech."

4. Tell those pricks in power to go line up and fuck themselves on a door knob.

Easy peasy.

And maybe go beyond that and have a bunch of bloggers outside FL publish scathing posts under a "guest blogger" name with the same disclaimer. Probably drive those assholes crazy.

C'mon, folks, these individuals are never HUMILIATED.

I'm so tired of seeing these posts saying so-and-so was HUMILIATED, I don't even read them anymore. It's baloney, or maybe clickbait.

They can't be humiliated because they have no sense of shame. If something doesn't work, they just try something else. They've got to be the lowest form of life ever allowed on this planet.

Question for astronomy buffs,

I tried looking for an answer to this online a week or two ago, but didn't get much of anywhere.

We hear about clouds of space dust being out there. But where does the dust come from? AFAIK, dust is minute particles of something, but that "something" had to be solid and come from somewhere.

Can you enlighten me?

Colbert hits it on the head.

From Huffpost:


He said that Fox has found something else to PRETEND to be pissed off about: woke Legos. PRETEND. I loved it. It's about time viewers hear this, and hopefully they'll start talking about it.

Florida seems to be regressing

to the Middle Ages under that fucking piece of shit asshole.

And we still have free speech in CA, so fuck you, guv'nor.

Is Fucker C running out of material?

I flat-out refuse's to listen to that fucking asshole, but, from bits and pieces here and there, I'm getting the impression that he seems to be dialing back his bullshit about the Democrats and instead picking on people like Chelsea Handler.

Is my impression correct? If so, I have to wonder if it's because Fox thinks he's starting to alienate his own viewers.

Seriously, is Putin, via tfg, blackmailing repukes?

Not to start another rumor, but watching the news recently really makes me wonder.

Thank you for the heart!!!!!

Thank you for my hearts!

Question for astronomy buffs.

Like probably many of us, I often ponder weird stuff in the shower. Most of it just comes and goes, but this thought, from a few days ago, kinda stuck in there.

We are told that the vast majority of the objects we see in the sky are anywhere from a few to several million lights-years away, i.e., at different distances. So what we see up there is the light from where these objects were a long time ago. And the universe is expanding.

So, it would seem to follow that what we see up there isn't a "real" picture: it's more like a composite picture of where all these objects were (in our viewpoint) at many different times in the past. For all we know, the constellations, as we see them, may not even "exist" any more. And that supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way may be a lot bigger.

And that leads to the other thought: when we see a planet, we are seeing where it was when sunlight hit it, but it's not there "now," because the light from the planet takes a while to reach us.

Did all that hot water screw up my brain?
