I had eggs over easy on cracked wheat toast for supper at 6PM. It's 23:45 and my farts already smell like eggs. I know this is not erudite or literary but it is the human condition and we share that fate... that fart. It's the fart that binds. Gramma was a Pascal... maybe I got my digestion from her?

I am scarcely surprised the ability to discern truth depends on not being confined in one's being by cumulative falsity.

"[Fania] Pascal's Wittgenstein intends to accuse her of not of lying but of misrepresentation of another sort. She characterizes her feeling as the feeling of a run over dog. She is not really acquainted, however, with the feeling to which this phrase refers. Of course, the p0hrase is far from being complete nonsense to here; she is hardly speaking gibberish. What she says has an intelligible connotation, which she certainly understands. Moreover, she does know something about the quality of the feeling to which the phrase refers: she knows at least that it is an undesirable and unenjoyable feeling. The trouble with her statement is that it purports to convey something more than simply that she feels bad. Her characterization of her feeling is too specific; it is excessively particular. Hers is not just any bad feeling but, according to her account, the distinctive kind of bad feeling that a dog has when it is run over. To the Wittgenstein in Pascal's story, judging from his response, this is just bullshit."
            --Harry G. Frankfort, On Bullshit (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 2005), pp. 28-29.

Based upon this passage by Frankfort I hardly think it plausible to assume that the last post by Amos enjoys any plausibility or veracity whatsoever.

I dropped a couple of Rapparree's posts into that thing and the needle didn't even quiver. This demonstrates to a certainty that his BS is surreptitious, covert, BS of the stealth variety, the kind that inserts itself into your mental landscape so underhandedly that you don't notice it corroding your thought patterns and undermining your ratiocinative processes. Polished, seemingly normal prose with a quiet, deadly, secret payload.

I think our Mom prefers the explicit, open-hearted sort.

So there ya go.

I was speaking (writing)about David Oglethorpe, notorious do-badder in Butte from 1871 to 1927. HE was also the guy who lit the fuses for the dynamite that blew up the union hall, HE was the guy behind the Frank Little incident, HE was guy who caused at least six of the mine "disasters" in Butte. He was Henry Plummer's boss and was called "The Mastermind of the Mines." Although he worked hand-in-glove with Clark, Daly, Heinze, and Standard Oil. He mysteriously vanished in 1927 while standing under an ore chute.

I can't believe I'm below the line (or is it below the belt?) And I surely can't keep up with you creative funny guys.

I cannot tell a lie. My sirname does not begin with an "O" but rather a lowly and slender "I". And I am taking Irish, and in the so-called advanced class, where we are daily learning how much more complex the Irish language is than we'd ever imagined it could possibly be in our most demented nightmares.

I was embarrassed the other day to discover that I'd been talking to Rapparee for over an hour before he laid down enough clues for me to figure out who he was. And no, I've never worked in the Neversweat. It's all a myth and maybe even a conspiracy out to besmirch my sterling reputation.

Anyway, greetings to all of you out there in Mudland. I'm hoping I can make it to the Getaway this year and see some of you in person.

Cheers,

David

As the owner of two polysyllabic pooches, I must defend the practice of giving nice names to dogs, more than just a grunt in their direction. The third dog has a mono-syllable name, and came already named enough so I couldn't start calling him something else (though the name I had in mind is close enough sounding that he might not notice - it doesn't matter what I call him as long as I call him in time for dinner, right?)

He's working in the Never Sweat at the 1,235 foot level. Started as a mucker in a stope but worked his way up to mule wrangler in only a couple of weeks. He was a bar tender at the Finlandia but when he was told to "tap 'er light" he underfilled the beer mugs and barely escaped to the Dumas with his life. Leaving the Dumas was a tricky business, but as long as you left all that you owned and more there they let you keep your pants, or so I've heard anyway. So he's here and learning Irish except that he's in the very, very advanced group and he's got his Irish up. He told me to tell you that you owe him USD 1,237 from some mining stock you sold him, saying something about a mine being "a hole in the ground with a liar on top" but I didn't quite catch it all.

Oh, once I had an octothorp
Who was a friend to me
I fed the thing on gruel and gorp
Under the banyan tree
It made him hop and snuff and snort
And whirl and leap around
Until my poor old octothorp
Turned into a lowly pound!
His hash was settled once for all
His hair fell out behind.
I weep that the octothorp should fall
To the status of a sign!

To offer a teasing riddle and refuse to answer is cruelty to minds and should be actionable, sirrah. You are a knave.

The first two kittens I ever owned on my own I christened "God" and "Dammit", respectively. The reasons, I should hope, were obvious.

Mom! Did you know that the actual name for the symbol "#" is "octothorpe"? It's not "pound sign" or "hash symbol" or even "number sign". It's friggin' "octothorpe"! We've been lied to by millions of computers who tell us to "Press the pound sign." No wonder it always take me about half a second to remember what symbol they're talking about! They're calling it the wrong thing!

I'm patiently waiting for the day when my bank's computer will instruct me to "Enter your telephone banking PIN, followed by octothorpe."

Dog names any longer than one syllable are inane. Hell's bell, name him "Kill" if you must because you are bereft of any modicum of originality. Fuck me (which is too long a name for a God).

Meanwhile, back on the bungalow. Ted Currie showed up for my wood stove for $75. It's one a them Swedish wood stoves what come apart. I said he needed someone to help him get it out of the basement and what happened next was, well, I let him do it by himself against all common sense. I still have elevated blood pressure. What a fuckin mess! Damaged storm door and all. Destroyed door mat. Now, I of younger age would have made the fucker pay either today or in the middle of the night but my health and mental health preclude such. I will just clean it up and be glad he and the stove are gone.

But... I really shoulda keyed his van as he was leaving because that's what the fucker did to me. And he was nasty about it AFTER he got the stove in his van. People can be such assholes!

I did get $20 for a couch and chair later. Well, I had the $20 but buddy said to his buddy, "I can sew that rip on the couch cushion. The wife will freak out when she sees these in the living room!" So, I gave him back the $20 when he was leaving and he said, "Thank you, sir." $20 for "Sir" these days is fuckin cheap!

Hi, Mom! Why is "Rover" such a common name for dogs in anecdotes? Have you ever known anyone who actually named a dog "Rover"? And why would anyone outside of a goatherd or something want a dog to rove? I want my dog to stay at home. Roving is a big no-no. Roving equals harassing the neighbor's cattle and getting kicked or gored. Roving equals being mistaken for a deer by some trigger-happy idiot in spite of that neon orange collar. I'd rather name my dog "Stay Put".

Yes, 52,900 is the number of feet in ten miles plus an extra hundred feet. Actually, that hundred feet isn't really extra. It's necessary. Without it, you'd never be able to get to twenty miles, or fifty miles, or a hundred miles. If you've ever traveled any of those distances, you've passed through 52,900 feet and probably weren't even aware of it. But if you hadn't, you'd be stuck at 52,899.99999... feet forever. It's a very important number.

BWL... re Beth, anybody who knows any history knows it was a joke... a lark. If anything,it may teach some people that Germans like to tease each other.

As for Tanya, well, she surely doesn't have the feet to fill my waders anyway. Pressure inside can cause leaks while pressure outside is taken on by the legs. Seams are seams eh? Besides, filling them with a garden hose? And, if she doesn't buy em, how do I get the mould out? Strook c****, as they say in NF. ("On" NF? After all, it is a big fookin rock perched in the North Atlantic eh?)

So, buddy asks me how I attach my leader to my fly line. I says, fer the price, don't matter if it's an eyelet screw or a traditional tie and if ya wanna change it, change it. The price is the... ya wanna come look at the gear or not? Jaysus... some people just wanna get shit for free.

Tell her "No," you won't test the waders by filling them up with water, but you will toss in a free tire patch kit.

And Mom, there's a thread on the board called "Queen Mother" but it's not about you! It's some horseshit about pictures of Queen Elizabeth as a child giving a Nazi salute. BFD. It's attracted the usual contingent of Limey shitbirds contributors. If it was about you, it would be far less contentious.

Who you callin a Nutbahr, Rap?

As for rebar... depends on a LOT of factors. I knows me crete. I once entered the Head Hall Engineering Library and saw a classmate. I was carrying my recon text and papers. He asked if I had any info on the weekly assignment due tomorrow. I replied that I was just about to start. He laughed and told me his study group had 30 hours on it and it could not be solved. I asked him to share his (their) work. He laughed and said, "Not likely. You do your own work." and he walked away. "Twenty minutes later, as I was headed out, he saw me and asked, "Just giving up eh?" I said, "No. I solved it. It was easy." He asked my how I did it. I said, "Fuck off asshole."

Now, to be fair, this guy is now a BIG WIG in government with the Public Works Canada Department of Corrections or whatever the fuck they nicknamed it yesterday. Go figure eh? Toady little unqualified no-mind suck with political connections.

BTW... It was easy because it could not be done "as is". It was a simple test. As an engineer, ya gotta take design constraints and think outside of the parking garage. The parking garage could only be built if it was heated... it was obvious that it could not be done unless "Assume heated parking garage." 10/10. That's why I was paid to do a Master's degree. AND, that's why I never got a "good" job... too smart.

BTW... I don't really... yes... I do... R*** doesn't deserve his fuckin cushy government job. He was a twit then and I expect he is still a twit. A VERY well paid twit. On my taxpayer dollars.

Bitter? Yes. Why do you ask?

These stroarberries are deeeelicious!

Speaking of rebar, did you know that the dome of the Pantheon in Rome is the largest structure ever built of unreinforced concrete? Did you also know that the fact that it is built of unreinforced concrete is the reason why it's still standing after nearly 2000 years? Rebar allows builders to build stronger structures using exponentially less concrete, but rebar also rusts inside the concrete matrix, producing cracks, fissures, and other nasty things that make buildings, bridges, and highway overpasses fall down. Everything built of reinforced concrete will eventually need to be razed or rebuilt, but the Pantheon will keep right on Pantheoning along.

Are they any relation to the Bikrbahrs, the Schokolatbahrs, or the Gaolbahrs? They can't be related to the Bahrbees of Malibu or the Loklbahrs, but perhaps to the Bussbahrs? The last is a electrifying family with a shocking past that has caused many to blow their fuses. The Gaolbahrs are quite uptight and locked within themselves, while the Loklbahrs are pretty friendly and outgoing. Those Schokolatbahrs are sticky sweet and not everyone can deal with them, especially the nuts (but you can find those in any family, even Mom's). We do not, of course, speak of or to the Malibu Bahrbees.
