Tdfg's "sir story" database...

This guy was interested in them, so he made a searchable database. "Sir, they said, with tears in their eyes..."


Take out the 'ammunition' in the search box and you have 400+ stores, but he repeats a lot, so it also says when and where in the next column, and sometimes other notes.

The word "fuck" can be any part of a sentence.

The FUCK word

Perhaps one of the most interesting and colorful words in the English language is the word "Fuck." It is the one magical word, which, just by it's sound describes pain, pleasure, love, and hate. In language, "Fuck" falls into many grammatical categories. It can be used as a verb, both transitive (John fucked Mary) and intransitive (Mary was fucked by John). It can be an active verb (Mary doesn't really give a fuck); or an adverb (Mary is really fucking interested in John); and as a noun, (Mary is a terrific fuck). It can be used as an adjective (Mary is fucking beautiful). As you see, there are very few words with the versatility of "Fuck."

Besides It's sexual connotations, this incredible word can be used to describe many situations:

It can be used in an anatomical description

"He's a fucking asshole."

It can be used to tell time

"It's five fucking thirty."

It can be used in business

"How did I end up with this fucking job?"

It can be maternal

as in "Motherfucker."

Valuable Vocabulary Chart Below:


"How the fuck are you?"


"I got fucked by the car dealer."


"Oh, fuck it."


"Hell, I guess I'm fucked now."


"Fuck you."


"Fuck me."


"What the fuck...?"


"I don't understand this fucking business."


"Fucked again."


"For fuck's sake."


"This is fucking great."


"I'm going to knock your fucking head off."


"Geir Bergerud is a Fuckwad!"


"He's such a fuck-up."


"Fuck if I know."


"What the fuck is going on here?"


"Where the fuck are we?"




"Up your fucking ass."


"Fuckin A!"


"Well, I'll be fucked."


"What the fuck are you doing?"


"Fuck you and the horse you rode in on!"

Famous quotes.

General Custer's last words:

"Look at all the fucking Indians!"

Mayor of Hiroshima:

"Holy FUCK!"

Captain of the Titanic:

"Where is all this fucking water coming from?"

The mind boggles at the many creative uses of the word FUCK!
Use it regularly in your daily speech.

Such a versatile fucking word, ain't it?!

Thin yellow line.

Saw a mention of that and did a google image search...

It was intended as a memorial for tow truck drivers who died on duty, but after Uvalde... I picked this grunge version because the speckles look like bullet holes.
It will hurt the cops' machismo if we spread this around as an indictment of their cowardice.

60 min: USAF Vet buys plantation house ancestors were enslaved at.


Based on this WaPo story: https://www.washingtonpost.com/history/2022/01/22/virginia-plantation-slavery-owners-history/

Pittsylvania County, Virginia.

Just off the side of the road sat a grand white house called Sharswood. Silently holding secrets from the past, waiting for a new owner to uncover them. Sounds like the opening line of a southern gothic novel, but this story is about a real family, and a real house, this country's history, and a man who found himself at the center of far more than he had bargained for.

The man is Fred Miller, a 56-year-old Air Force veteran who was looking to buy property in his Virginia hometown for his large extended family's frequent get-togethers. He had never heard the name Sharswood, and yet this old house would lead him on a journey of discovery, with surprises and revelations that seem both impossible and inevitable all at once.

These are the gentle hills of Pittsylvania County, Virginia -- quiet, rural farm country near the North Carolina border that once produced more tobacco than any county in the state.

Fred Miller: Hey, we're gonna gather up in this room here mainly..

Fred Miller grew up here in a close family that likes getting together regularly for birthdays, fish fry's, and as his cousin Adam Miller told us, just about anything.

He knew nothing of his family history, or how it all tied back to this very property, until after he bought the place. Of course, his great grandmother's parents never lived in the well-maintained main house, but in the now crumbling slave's quarters in the back...

As I read this, I could only think that if teachers told their students about this history today they'd be accused of teaching CRT.

Comment ignore.

I occasionally read articles at newswer, and you can block people there, but you can read replies to them. I like doing that so while I'm no longer exposed to their negativity, I can see the replies to them and get a sense of other users reactions to them. That way I can follow most of the discussion.

Ignore here is a) block them from mailing you, or b) block them from mailing, all their posts, and all replies to their posts. I did that to someone here, then went back to the discussion and it was like a completely different thread. It just eviscerated the contents including many replies I agreed with or found thoughtful.

Since Earl G is redoing the site, maybe he can set up a newser/disqus style of direct post muffling, but revealing the replies. As it is, the site is like that pretty much already, as I'll see posts hidden or removed by writer. If this suggestion is implemented, it would be a) blocked from mailing, b) comment ignore, or c) full ignore.

The more I read this word on DU, the more this came to mind... https://memory-alpha.fandom.com/wiki/The_Omega_Glory_(episode)

Star Trek: TOS had a jingoistic episode called 'The Omega Glory". Ignoring the disease immunity plot that revolved around the other Captain, the world they were on had Asian looking Kohms vs the savage (and white, and blond) Yangs. The other capt. backed the Kohms, while Kirk sympathized with the Yangs. Toward the end, someone said the word 'freedom'. The Yang leader said it was a worship word, exclusive to them, and brought in a stars and stripes flag and a copy of their holy text, the first few words of which they prounounce "E Pablista". Yada yada, Kirk fights the other captain and wins while Spock gets the leader's babe to give him a communicator so they can get help. Kirk takes the text and explains he didn't understand because they said it wrong. The words are "We the People..."

The Yangs (Yanks) can't read anymore, they don't understand the basis of their beliefs or culture. It became a religion, reduced to pure tribalism, defining them solely by their enemity to the Kohms (Communists). Sound familiar?

Freedumb is their worship word.

Death of Hillsborough GOP member from COVID-19 causes financial problems for party

Source: Tampaybay.com

The Hillsborough County Republican Party alerted federal election regulators Tuesday that it may file its monthly campaign finance reports late because a key member of the organization died Saturday from COVID-19.

Prior to his death, Gregg Prentice developed and maintained software that electronically tracked donations to the Hillsborough County GOP and supplied data for the organization’s monthly finance reports. None of the other officers knew how to operate Prentice’s software, the party told the the Federal Elections Commission.

“We will be struggling to get all of this entered in the proper format by our deadline on September20, but we will try to do so with our best effort,” the party wrote.

A call and text message to county party chairman Jim Waurishuk were not returned.

I'm conflicted. I almost don't want to laugh about this, because this group has engaged in covid denialism shenanigans and it seems ironic.. Almost.

Oh ha ha. 'Faucism'.

"Gondor has no King" cited in bonkers lawsuit.

Why yes, the Judicial Branch should be able to issue a TRO suspending the Biden Aministration and all of Congress on the basis of a few states not appropriately determining that people were voting for the first time, and should use the precedent set by the Right Honorable J. R. R. Tolkien and establish a group of Stewards over Goverment in the fashion of Trustees over a failed business, why did you ask?
