Womens March Signs Were NOT Litter!

Have you seen the meme going around about how all those “nasty women” at the marches last weekend left piles of trash behind? That really pissed me off – it is not correct in the accusation and why the hell does anyone want to bash the women and suggest that the marches caused any trouble? Shame on the person who created that meme and shame on everyone who shares it and helps it spread. You can see the meme and the Snopes report on it here:

Women’s march meme

The Snopes report not entirely accurate, but it is an OK explanation. Any time you are going to gather a large crowd in DC and in most cities, you need a permit. Part of that process usually includes posting a bond and also paying fees for things like extra security, cleanup, parking, etc. Marchers were instructed as to where to leave their signs. The few trash receptacles along the major roads in DC are not meant to hold trash from major events like this. Most days they are filled with trash from just every day tourists.Event organizers pay for a cleanup detail to come pick it up. In DC, it is usually a great source of extra revenue for the National Parks Service.

In the case of the women’s march this past weekend, a faction of that group decided to leaved their posters along the sidewalk in front of the Trump hotel as a protest message. It was deliberate but was covered under the permitting for cleanup.
It wasn’t litter and trash just dropped where they stood like what happens during the 4th of July events or the inauguration. OMG looking at the national mall and sidewalks after those events are over is just totally disgusting. But when you have an impromptu memorial after a tragedy, like they did in Paris, where people bring cards, posters, candles and flowers and pile them in the street or in front of a building – no one calls that litter.

Chat Naked if you Dare

Last night I got online and found myself a chat room. It was amazing and I had a blast. I think the best part was when one lade suggested we all get naked and spend the rest of our chat time without any clothes. Everyone claimed to have done that – I sure did. If anyone lied about it and didn’t really get naked, then they just cheated themselves out of a fun time.

Most of the time when I chat online I expect everyone to be telling the truth, but deep down I know a certain percentage of them are not really being truthful. So I don’t get too involved or too upset with people over what they say in chat. If I took it too seriously, it would spoil the fun.

Actually did meet a lady in real life that I came across in chat. She does not live in this city, so I was not worried about things getting crazy. I had to go out of town for a weekend and I knew she lived there, so I asked her out for a drink. She agreed to meet me and we had a nice time. There was no really chemistry between and we didn’t exchange phone numbers or make a second date. I have to admit it was the first time I had ever met anyone from an online connection and I wanted to be cautious. I’m sure she felt the same way.

It was a good experience, even though it didn’t lead to anything more than a few drinks in a bar. At least I had some fun with a pretty lady while I was out of town, and it gave me the confidence to try it again sometime.

 

Shit Load Of Channels

Was looking for something to watch on the TV that would pull me out of this “after the holiday funk” that has been fucking with me this year, more than usual. It is becoming more and more of a challenge to find good quality comedy based TV shows, even having a decent satellite package that comes with a shit load of channels. I can’t imagine not having the Comedy Channel, sometimes that is all there is that isn’t all about crimes and violence or some type of horrible live changing event, least I forget – all the Reality Shows that have exploded all over the air waves. I love a good laugh so I was totally caught off guard when I stumbled onto a show that looked vaguely familiar, which turned out to be the new “Drew Carey’s Improv-A-Ganza” show that is now on GSN.

Back in October I was posting about how I missed the old Drew Carey show “Whose Line Is It Anyway” and all of a sudden this show pops up. I thought that was pretty fucking cool. From what I understand the show premiered back in April, but I hadn’t heard a word about it until I stumbled onto by accident just a week or so ago.

Drew Carey is managing to bring together so many of the “favorite improv actors” such as Kathy Kinney, Ryan Stiles, Jeff Davis, Chip Esten, Greg Proops, Brad Sherwood, Colin Mochrie and Jonathan Mangum. I’m sure we will be seeing Wayne Brady, or at least I’m hoping we will, he was the best out of the whole lot of them.

 

Heavy Fucking Duty Jumper Cables

My neighbor is so frustrated with his daughter that I would laugh with him but he’s not laughing. Knowing that her car’s battery was giving her trouble, she came to his house yesterday on her way to work to borrow his jumper cables.  He has nice tools and a nice, well-kept garage and workshop. I am sure that the jumper cables he loaned her cost at least $60. They were the heavy gauge, heavy fucking duty cables – not those cheap ass ones you get at Wal Mart for $10. So he loans the jumper cables to her, in case she has trouble after work getting the car to start. But when she comes out to the car after work, she finds that the jumper cables have been stolen from her car and she had to call a tow truck to come help her.Not real clear on how she paid for the tow job.

Now, I want to know why the cables were not in the car trunk, out of sight. You just don’t leave something valuable just fucking lying out on the car seat or out in the open in that part of town. You are just asking for trouble if you do that. Plus, a reasonable person would lock the car doors. It’s not my problem, but I think the girl or her “Piece Of Shit” boyfriend took the jumper cables to a pawn shop and pawned them. It would be just the thing that a cock sucker like him would pull And now she is over there trying to get her daddy to buy a new car battery for her car today. Like I said, it would be funny as shit, but it really isn’t. I feel so bad for my neighbor – he’s in a lose-lose situation no matter what he does.

Facebook = Divorce

You just can’t get away hearing all the bad things that come along with using the ever popular social network Facebook. I know that I have had a few people get totally pissed off at me and “unfriended” which at first really did hurt my feelings, then I got angry about the whole deal and now I’m just totally fucking over it. If they know me well enough to be a “friend” on Facebook then they should know me better than take some of the things that I post on there in a bad or negative way. That’s just not my personality.

It’s being said that divorce attorneys all over the country (possibly the world, but I’m not totally sure about that) are saying that they are seeing a huge increase of divorce cases that have come about because of things said and found on Facebook. I tend to believe this since I know myself of two marriages that have ended because of what Facebook brings about. Why the fuck anyone would put some of things that they do on Facebook is beyond me. I’m a firm believer that you don’t put anything on the Internet that you wouldn’t have written on a large fucking billboard right in front of your home.
