The guys running Israel right now are really fucking up, IMO. Supporting Israel, praising Israel, and having Israel's back has always been a bipartisan deal in the US, so why does Netanyahu seem determined to change that? I can see how tying themselves so closely with the Republicans might benefit the GOP, but the… » 1/23/15 8:35am Friday 8:35am

I hit my head on stuff a lot. Like, it's dangerous for me to wear a billed cap or anything else that might obscure low-hanging objects, because I'm otherwise pretty likely to drive my skull right into them. The good thing is that I've evolved to be like a woodpecker or something, so I can crack my head on a doorway so… » 1/20/15 10:29am 1/20/15 10:29am

A while ago, this lady I had just met immediately wanted to set me up on a blind date with one of her friends. Her motivation, and I guess what she thought would be the main selling point was that "The two of you could be brother and sister! Seriously!" Wow, major turn on right there. » 1/17/15 10:00am 1/17/15 10:00am

My major rule regarding leftovers is: You snooze, you lose. I don't mean that I never save nice things for people, or that I don't give them a fair crack at the snacks in the first place, but don't expect that tasty something something to just be waiting on you in the fridge for days and days. You snoozed, you lost,… » 1/13/15 11:02pm 1/13/15 11:02pm

I'm going to go ahead and diagnose your fiance as suffering from "But I'm right" syndrome. You're like "Don't blare your horn at that person and then pull alongside and get in a staredown with them, because they could be totally insane and prepared to escalate things beyond your wildest dreams." The only, increasingly… » 1/13/15 12:17pm 1/13/15 12:17pm

The money thing is NUTS. It's where everyone's all about the money, but it's not about the money at all. There's been this brutal battle in my own family that I'm fortunate not to be involved in, but look. There is no money. I'm a grown-ass man now, and the thought of being an ELDERLY man obsessed with turning five… » 1/12/15 7:09pm 1/12/15 7:09pm

The thing about Romney really is funny, because he and his wife are total Francophiles. He did a thirty month Mormon mission over there as a youngster, and he's considered Paris a second home ever since. At least, until he got serious about trying to be President. Then, he had to paper over all that stuff real quick.… » 1/09/15 10:57am 1/09/15 10:57am

These balsamic chicken drumettes are good. You kind of have to take a chance that your grocery will have a drumette package, which is a cut of part of the chicken wing. You don't want an actual big honking drumstick for people to have to gnaw on, and the whole wing with all the bones is too complicated. The drumette… » 1/07/15 1:44pm 1/07/15 1:44pm
