Oh yee'll tak the high road and I'll tak the low road and I'll be in Scotland by mornin' For me and my true love will never meet again By the bonnie bonnie banks of Loch Lomond.
lyle: And us Idahonians Maybe its Idahonia that has all the rude drivers.
Clarice: hit, you know how much I hate that pass--scariest ride in this country ever I love that pass. Sometimes I drive it with my right hand on the wheel and my left hand wielding a chainsaw out the window. Blindfolded.
Clarice: Don't look until you've digested dinner. Miss Marple already embedded it on this thread... Posted by: Miss Marple | September 18, 2014 at 01:20 PM I give you props for linking it, though. You spared us all.
Holy canoli. The only tv I watch is DVR, so I just slide on through all commercials. For some reason I decided I'd put on the Thursday night NFL game. EVERY OTHER DAMN AD IS ABOUT THE NC SENATE RACE. Man, that Tillis is a monster. I think he eats schoolkids for breakfast. Hagan? I don't think she's even ever met Obama, and boy is she ready to hold his feet to the fire if she gets a shot of being Senator while he's president. Or something. I'm feeling doom. Lowercase without the trademark, but not too optimistic nonetheless. Other NC JOMers have a better handle on this than I do.
I can't tell you whether it is Idahoans or Wyomingites when you're coming from Jackson, WY into Victor, ID over Teton pass, but whoever it is . . . get off yer dern brakes. Here's my deal. I know the pass, I know the last two switchbacks before the road starts to straighten out. If I let off the brakes just after the penultimate switchback, and then throw the car into neutral in the middle of the last switchback . . . I can ride it in neutral all the way to Victor (a span of ~9 miles) But nooooooooo, there's always some guy (not Some Guy, presumably) that hits his brakes on one of those switchbacks and takes us down to 25 mph . . . thwarting my efforts. RUDE!
Ig: Hilarious story;Some kid lights another kid's armpit hair on fire while he's driving and they crash. Happened way up in Idaho of all places. There are some JOMers up there aren't there? We're blessed with four of 'em. But that story confirms my suspicions about this one... America’s Rudest Drivers Are in Idaho It's the passengers who are pyro a-holes!
Miss Marple: To REALLY get scared, right click! TURKEY TONGUES AND EYEBALLS!!!!!
Ig: --backpfeifengesicht-- I have no idea what that means but it does remind me to say I hope Frau is doing better. "Backpfeifengesicht" literally a slap-face. Posted by: Frau Morgenstern | March 12, 2014 at 01:37 PM
Ig: I wonder what the difference would be were MarkO to realize his dream of being named CEO of CBS KBS, the Koch Broadcasting Service. KBS? MarkO Broacasting gets you a MOB.
NK: Catalist-- that is the only reason Obummer won in '12, well that and Romney's data/GOTV failure and his failure to convince people who detest Obummer to go out and actually vote for RR. You know what that sounds like? Either... "The only reason Obummer won is ... The two reasons are ... The three reasons Obummer won are fear, and surprise, and ruthless efficiency . . . and an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope!" Or..... "And the only thing Obummer needed to win was *this* ... The ashtray, this paddle game, and the remote control, and the lamp, and that's all Obummer needed. ... He didn't need one other thing. Except his dog. [Shithead growls ] He didn't need his dog."

I love Alice so much sometimes it hurts.
I've thought it through and Jane was definitely referencing the 9:53.
Ig: I have long told of my frustration on comments that act like the immediately preceding comment wasn't there. :) I would like to apologize for not acknowledging that Ig beat me to the bunch, but I won't. That's just how I roll, and plus he used an emoticon. ::grin::
I have long told of my frustration on comments that give little or no context to what it is the commenter is talking about. For example, I have no way to know if Jane's 10:12 is in reference to TK's 9:53 or his 10:01.
Researchers led by Brown University political scientist Rose McDermott But . . . by any other name would she smell as sweet?
Cap'n: Hinderaker is wrong about this. You can get fired for something you do away from the job that isn't even a crime; acting inappropriately with somebody's spouse, for example. Heck, IIRC Paul Mirengoff nearly got fired from his law firm . . . for blogging at Powerline.

MarkO - you're in Jackson Hole? Lucky son of a gun.

Soylent: And here I'm getting ready to move further away. When was the tentative date again? I will reiterate: if your move involves you driving from point now to point then, you simply must make it a point to stop. Preferably schedule to spend the night here. But in a pinch, let me buy you a meal. Otherwise I'll pout and plot revenge. You probably don't want that. Nobody here wants that.

I was born a poor black child. I remember the days, sittin' on the porch with my family, singin' and dancin' down in Mississippi...

For the record, :eyeroll: comes across as very, very condescending, bless your heart.
Steph: Pulling peanuts, picking cotton and curing tobacco are loads of fun. :eyeroll: I don't look back on my life and think . . . I wish I had had more fun. I wish I had endured more stuff. Non-fun, hard-work, back-breaking stuff.
anonamom: If he reads it, it means I don't have to. If TM didn't read it, I still wouldn't.
