I am leaning toward renewing my lease for at least another six months.  I have every intention to do just that unless I were to get a job in Oklahoma City before March 31.  I have until that date to make my official decision to either renew or vacate.  The new lease would start June 1.
This point got lost amid all the theological debates. Unbelievable.

That's not really news -- most of us loyal Update readers knew Bushie would be renewing the moment he mentioned it as a possibility. I mean, it's such a horrible idea that the sheer fact that Bushie mentioned he was considering it was a clear indication that he'd already decided.

The real new revelation getting lost here is that Bushie is now pushing 450 pounds. At this point, he will have four different kinds of diabetes by his next checkup.

That some of you would consider a person we've always known so little of a true friend speaks only to your exceedingly low standards. And to continue to like him after the revelation that in fact, yes, he was a total liar all long means you just have none.

Welcome to the Internet, friend.

Maybe a bit of good news here, although it's not enough to warrant kudos or 'atta boys', or the like, but I went to get Braum's for supper, but the burger tasted terrible to me, so I had to throw out half the burger.  I still consumed all the fries and coke, but I threw half the burger in the trash.

So basically, you threw out the "healthiest" part of your incredibly unhealthy meal. Congrats.

They should be stripped of the AFC Championship and the right to play in the Super Bowl, and it should be given to the Colts.  If you cheat, you should have to forfeit.

Unfortunately, that will never happen, because Roger Goodell has the moral compass of a sociopath and only cares about money.

And because the Colts suck, do not deserve to be in the Superbowl based on their play, and it'd make for a really boring and terrible game.

I fully understand that and I'm not living in some fantasy land in regards to that.  It's something I have to work with.  It doesn't stop me from believing in myself and my abilities.  It doesn't stop me from selling myself as best I can.  It's up to employers to judge if I'd be a good fit for their company.  I cannot control their final decision.  All I can do is present myself in the best way possible.

Actually, yes, your weight does stop you from selling yourself as best you can. Many employers will look at your physical form and think, "man, if this guy's body is such a mess, can his work product be any better?" Or, possibly, "if this man doesn't care about his own health, why would he care about the health of my business?" The simple fact is that fat people are routinely and significantly discriminated against in this country by those who are not fat.

"Presenting yourself in the best way possible" means getting your life together and losing some weight.

This ruling has been stayed for two weeks.


Quote from: Kim Chandler & Jeff Martin, Associated Press
U.S. District Judge Callie V. S. Granade refused the Alabama attorney general's request to put her ruling on indefinite hold until the U.S. Supreme Court takes up the decision of gay marriage later this year. However, Granade did issue a 14-day stay to give the state time to appeal her decision to the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Granade said it was inappropriate, in her view, to put the decision on permanent hold.

You'd think somebody has to drive 30 miles each way to do anything would appreciate low gas prices. But, I guess as far as Bushie is concerned, it's $0/gallon no matter what.

I would prefer $3.00 a gallon.  The low, low prices are killing oil field jobs in Oklahoma.  I have several friends who work in the oil field and they have reported massive layoffs due to the low oil prices.  Oil should be around $80 a barrel as a general rule according to some of my oil field worker friends.

Why should all of us in non-oil field jobs pay an extra $1.25 a gallon a good $15 or $20 per week to subsidize your couple of friends who work in the oil industry? Far more Americans benefit from lower oil prices than higher ones. Businesses too.

LMFAO at actually printing out those bill confirmations.

Bushie, do you also read the full Terms and Conditions before downloading any program onto your computer?

He also bought $30 software that promised to "speed up his PC" that actually just sets your available memory to the maximum setting and empties your cookies every so often.

So he paid $30 for a worse version of CCleaner?

No, I did not.  He's lying.

Certainly, California needs to dump it's "philosophical exemption" for vaccinations. If a child is to attend public schools or enter public hospitals, that child needs to be vaccinated for the safety of himself and those around him. Period.

Good Friday Morning!  I slept well last night and I am ready for the big move day!  The way things are going, I should be able to be out of here by 0900 or shortly thereafter.  I've got a pretty good size headache this morning, so I will be taking some medicine in a few minutes, but that shouldn't hold me back from getting done what I need to today.  My hope is to be in Tulsa by 1100 or so.  I am going to do a little job search before I leave, though.

Yes, and they should limited violence. I'm not sure anyone really wants to see a Facebook page with photos of corpses as the only thing on it.

When was the last time you accidentally wound up on a page like that?

In case anyone's interested, for Family Dinner #2 tonight, we are having roasted chicken straight from the Sam's club or Walmart Deli!

Mmm... the "Walmart Deli". You can't go wrong there!

Actually, we had a change of plans, or rather clarification.  We ordered fried chicken from a local mom and pop eatery (imagine that!) called Jim's Fried Chicken.  They have been in business in Nicoma Park, OK for decades, but recently rebuilt and modernized their restaurant to include tables inside.  It used to be just for take out and, I think, catering, but now patrons can dine there if they so choose.  We chose the take out route, but that has quickly become our favorite fried chicken place.  It far surpasses the likes of KFC and even Popeye's.

A last-minute switch from healthy roasted chicken to unhealthy fried chicken. That's our Bushie!

22  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Opinion of jmfcst's sock accounts on: January 21, 2015, 01:28:46 pm
I don't believe I was a mod when Jmfcst was initially banned, but I do know that when he was banned he had amassed over 100 reported, infracted and modified posts. He clearly knows the rules, and intentionally broke them for "fun," to "push the envelope" and otherwise tempt the moderation team into banning him at a time when moderators were loathe to ban anyone.

In the time since I've been a mod, he's created at least 10 sock accounts that I've noticed with the sole purpose of trolling (typically on the topic of homosexuality). He shows absolutely no respect for, or intention to follow, the rules. He's the Atlas equivalent of a prisoner who continuously tries to break out of jail and throws his own feces at guards and visitors.

And yes, Jmfcst's most egregious posts are immediately scrubbed when found, and many of his socks are crushed and banned before most people notice they exist. It shouldn't come as much of a surprise that the moderation team sees everything, while everyday posters can only see his posts for the 45 minutes in which it takes us to find and delete them.

While I personally see his socks as lacking any sort of the elements that make socks bad- the bad faith, the duplicity, the ill intention- and I don't see any reason why he ought to remain banned,

Well, you would be the resident expert on creating socks with said bad elements.

This will sound like a broken record and probably will not be believed, which I can't blame, but I am going to try to eat better and start cooking for myself when I get up to Tulsa this weekend.  I'm going to start with the dishes I know, such as scrambled eggs, macaroni and cheese (stove top kind), and spaghetti and then branch out into other dishes as time goes on.  I'm not going to set any kind of elaborate goal just yet, I want to get started first before I set my sights on loftier goals.

NONE OF WHAT YOU SAID IS HEALTHY! YOU EPITOMIZE ALMOST EVERYTHING THAT IS WRONG WITH AMERICA!!! Shocked How can you be so ignorant about your health? Macaroni and Cheese is a combo of fat and carbs, you need to eat 3 Veggies (cheese isn't a veggie) and a protein and exercise and stop making excuses!!! omg!!!

Come on, now! Let's focus on the positive!

The scrambled eggs part is actually a great choice. If you really want to go crazy and cook yourself a full breakfast, find a lean breakfast ham, lean sausage or turkey bacon to add to the skillet. (Look for the word lean!) It's super easy to cook together with eggs -- you literally just add a slice of meat to the same pan you're making the eggs in. The added protein will keep you fuller, longer. And the small amount of fat that melts off the meat will mix into the eggs, making them tastier.

My curiosity got the best of me, so I just did a search on Amazon to see if there really are any lifelike brief-relaxation-minded dolls for sale there. I can confirm: There's a surprisingly large number of fake ladies, and they're especially creepy and expensive. Most in stock and ready to ship!

My Amazon recommendations are going to be really off for a very long time.
