oddly enough the one moron I know that buys into the end of the world nonsense is also an ardent Ron Paul supporter. Figure that one out.

Also looking forward to more harrasment by "My Three Trolls". I know if I'm pi$$in' them off they will leave everyone else alone.

RoeDapple 5 years ago

Oops! My addition is lacking too. Four trolls. Some are so minor they are easy to forget.

If you don't have haters, you're not doing something right. Congratulations on having 3!

I can tell you what I am NOT looking forward to... political commercials and chest bumping rhetoric.

You seriously deleted that comment? One of the things they advertise and are proud of is the butt-flap.

I am proud of my butt flap too!

May as well go for it.

So am I Jake's victim, or is he mine? Both?

wmathews 5 years ago

He isn't really into condiments. I will say I have never seen him eat mustard, but I have seen him eat ketchup. Therefore, he is my soul mate.

Ron Holzwarth 5 years ago

Whitney, I believe it depends on the time of day. At dinnertime he's the victim, and at other times, it's you!

In other 2012 news: "...As of Jan. 3, 2012, interstate and intergovernmental access to your child’s personal information will be practically unlimited. The federal government will have a de facto nationwide database of supposedly confidential student information...."

Wow, the "natural medicine" guy cracks me up! I'm also expecting a lot of physical changes to the planet, you know, like spring, followed by summer, followed by autumn. And those coriolis winds moving the clouds all around! Tragedy looms...

Ron Holzwarth 5 years ago

As a general rule, people do not believe anything you tell them that is outside of their preconceived belief system because they think they know all about it already, regardless of whether they ever studied the subject or not.

For a couple examples that are contained within the three dimensional time space continuum, when Albert Einstein postulated the General Theory of Relativity in 1907 - 1915, which superseded Newtonian Physics, virtually no physicists or anyone else believed it. Of course, today we know it is factual reality. But if you haven't studied Physics, it sounds impossible.

And then years later, when the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle was presented to Albert Einstein, he didn't believe it! Of course, today we know it is factual reality. Again, if you haven't studied Physics, it sounds impossible.

Things that are outside the three dimensional time space continuum are exactly the same way. Most people just don't believe it, and eyewitness testimony means nothing.

Ron Holzwarth 5 years ago

Of course, there are hallucinations. However, no two people will ever describe the same hallucination, and they are never (or very rarely) later proven to be factual reality across time and distance.

Other things are different, and many people will describe the same thing exactly the same way across time, sometimes even across centuries, and sometimes from a great distance, such as from over a thousand of miles away.

Those are very different things than hallucinations, and there are no explanations for them that are contained within the three dimensional time space continuum.

A friend and I both had BeerTenders. Two thumbs down. I got mine from on the cheap. I gave it a grade of C and sold it on Craigslist. I'd say just get an old fridge that works, drill a hole in the door and rig it with a tap.

Ron Holzwarth 5 years ago

Years ago, in 1979, I ran away to California to be a hippy. But, I soon discovered that I had arrived at that party a few years too late. But, I did find roommates that made a pretty good show of it anyway.

They had fitted an old refrigerator with a beer tap, just as you described. But there was a serious problem - whenever there was a beer keg inside, it went dry in no time at all, and there was never enough money to keep it full.

Getting the heck out of KS. The worst decision I ever made. Have been severely abused and have PTSD thanks to all of the yahoos and southern-justice dishonesty here.

Looking forward to the November elections so Obama can have that second term he's worked so hard for. Hawaiian Ninja 2012!! Also to the Dems taking the House back from the teapublicans so he can get his stuff done.
