      I am kind of amazed the situation in Iowa isn't getting more media coverage.  I mean, I admit that I've been avoiding the "news" lately because it is all about politics but still.. I've barely even seen a mention of the hurricane(?) at the national level.  And certainly nowhere near the coverage of say, Biden and Kamala.  I didn't even hear about it from the "news" initially.  I had to hear about it from my brother where it is sort of local news.  He's just over the border about 100mi away in Janesville, WI and said Cedar Rapids was pretty much flattened.  Then I went looking for more information online on my own.  Sounded like a low-level hurricane, or one of our "Santa Ana" winds out here.  Hope it didn't rough you up too much.

      Dunno why I didn't see this before, @efaardvark - sorry I didn't say something sooner.  The winds were about the same as a Category 3-4 hurricane.  Here at the house, my gear measured 104 mph.  We lost a lot of trees and limbs, two neighbors near me had large trees fall on their houses, we're talking healthy 70-80-90 year old trees too.  My phone lines are still out.

      Not a problem, just glad to hear you're alive.  :)

  2. The burn out continues, I've found myself on Discord more than anywhere else lately.  Oof...

  3. I'm burnt out...

      Get some rest when you can! Sometimes I unplug from everything that's not actually too essential to the more important things. It's the main reason why I left a few social media platforms or took an extensive break from others. Keep healthy my friend! 

  4. It's weeks/days like this that make me wish I had a book scanner...

  5. Neighbors have a new garden gnome.  War is declared...

  6. When it's time to go back to my office, it better be around Halloween - I definitely have a Cousin It thing going on...

  7. I'm ready to taste salt again, please...

  8. Really badly drawn World War I and II cartoons have been my bread and butter during this quarantine.

  9. My inability to write "profiles about yourself" and "about me" continues, I see...

  10. Willing to trade: can of tomato basil for absolutely nothing.  Just get this crap out of my house...

      @The History Kid hmm...well, in that case I can trade you some spicy mojito lime chicken fajitas. Of course, they won't be ready until tomorrow because they're soaking in a delicious marinade until then. If you want beef though you're SOL because all the grocery stores around me are out at the moment.

      @RuthisianCodex you had my heart at chicken. 💖

    4. RuthisianCodex


      @The History Kid well then, consider it a trade! BTW, these fajitas are one of my signature dishes. I also make crispy chicken strips that I soak for a week in a spicy blend of tomatoes, chilis, & spices & then coat them in a Cajun batter & fry them to a beautiful golden brown. Needless to say, I don't make them often but the next time I do, I will surely let you know. 

  11. Just waiting till the stores run out of Mountain Dew and Doritos to see how filthy ya heathens can be...

    1. RuthisianCodex


      The true test of just what level of heck will break loose depends on the flavor of Mountain Dew & Doritos that are pillaged. For example, White Out Mountain Dew & Cool Ranch Doritos would be more 2nd or even possibly 3rd layer of heck, whereas Code Red Mountain Dew and Flamin' Hot Doritos would be more 7th layer of heck.

      Your point is valid, and a consideration that I had not made.  I will need to revisit the drawing board to see what the best method of execution is to accelerate the pillaging. 

  12. Day 4 of...whatever this is.  I am beginning to suspect that this thing called "the yard" may need mowing.  Keeping sanitation in mind, a flamethrower seems most practical and prudent...

  13. I swear, if this virus delays the reopening of the taco truck on post - HEADS. WILL. ROLL. 😡

  14. CMP has approved my app for purchasing an M1 Garand.  I might die of happiness...

      The History Kid

      Indeed I have not.  Protecc the protecker.

  17. Looks like I need to post more stuff in the History Club...since I am the only active member?  Well, if someone must carry that weight... may as well be me, right...?

      @Kazuto Kirigaya does this mean you're not helping then? :(

      @The History Kid I'm no good with history stuff, sorry. :(

  18. What-I say-WHAT in tarnation?! 


  19. This is your reminder that this exists:


  20. There's only one appropriate response to the presence of a taco truck.  If you do not know what that response is, you should be banished to Antarctica for your insolence.

      They're called the throne room because wives stopped letting their husbands refer to their home as a castle where they're the king because they're not really the ones in charge and well what happens in the bathroom stays in the bathroom so it escaped the metaphor's destruction for that reason.

      ...sigh.  Got it, here sir - this is for you.


    4. Seshi

  21. I keep thinking that the dude in your avatar is wearing a Tennessee Vol's hat, and that you require trash talking...acknowledge my concern plz.

      Very much.  I relate to Hawaiian-ish looking shirt-guy. <3

      For what it’s worth I doubt Daru’s into athletics. Always wondered if he wore a ball cap for the same reason I do.

      My hair is a bit too long for most hats, I end up looking stupid.

  22. I have a fish cannon, and I am not afraid to use it.

    1. Vitis


      You should be afraid to use it, the second you launch your first fish PETA will be all over that and PETA be cray cray.

    2. The History Kid

      The History Kid

      Bring it on. I ain't afraid of their carrots.

  23. Making a public disclaimer:  If you @ me, I will appear.  Use this power wisely, mortals.
