I Ate a Hairy Ball

I have been fascinated by hairy balls this past summer. I allowed some vine to grow in my vegetable garden, and it continually sprouted little hairy balls. And then they disappeared. I finally figured out that most likely the local deer visited and ate them. Once  I put 2 & 2 together (4, right?), I threw some netting over one of the fuzzy spheres and hoped that would give it a fighting chance to grow into Jim food rather than Bambi food. It worked! Soon I had one larger hairy ball hanging down.

My Parasitic Twin Wants to be President – Chapter Three – The Issues

Another month, another chapter. If you need to catch up, here are links to Chapter 1 and Chapter 2. Despite adjusting my medications, I put more words down on paper to create a Chapter 3, this time about campaign issues. Gee, that sounds dry. It was difficult to write about serious issues in a light-hearted way. I’m not sure I succeeded. Regardless, here are some excerpts from a raw, unedited third chapter about issues facing us today.

Now it is just getting embarrassing …

Republican legislators are devious, unscrupulous, morally corrupt, and downright criminal. I can accept that. But geez, do they have to be so freakin’ embarrassingly stupid? This gets on youtube and the whole world gets to see how dumb as rocks some of our elected legislators are. You just have to watch the first minute. Be ready to catch your jaw dropping before it hits the table.

The sad thing is that Rep. Massie’s Trump-loving, climate change-denying, bag of hammers-stupid constituents back in his Kentucky district will eat it up because they don’t know any better. Don’t believe me? Just read some of the comments on that youtube video. Just sad. How have we sunk this low? Our education system has clearly failed when the electorate votes for idiots like Massie. And for the moment, we have Betsy DeVos to fix our education system. I fear all hope is lost for the USA.

Or maybe I can help. I have a Bachelor of Science degree. And I went through a Master of Science program. I guess according to Rep. Massie, that makes me a scientist! Maybe I best commence with some sciencing and fix the gol’ darn climate mess that the Dumbocrats have invented.

In the words of John Kerry, “Are you serious? This is really, seriously happening here?” Sadly, it did.

My Phone is Broken

Damn. My phone is not even paid off yet, and it is already broken. Take a look at this.

phone temp


There is no possible way that the high temperature for Wednesday can be -17 degrees Fahrenheit with a low of -28F. If that were possible, and it is not, that would easily set a new record. This phone is definitely broken and clearly malfunctioning. I have no choice. My course is clear. I know what must be done.

Anyone who tells me climate change is not real gets the same treatment.


CO2? Pruitt Doesn’t.

Head of the EPA Scott Pruitt weighed in yesterday on whether CO2 emissions are causing global warming, “I would not agree that it’s (CO2) a primary contributor to the global warming that we see.” This is contrary to the EPA website that declares, “Carbon dioxide is the primary greenhouse gas that is contributing to recent climate change.”

Pruitt shared additional thoughts on CO2. “This so-called ‘invisible’ gas is supposed to be accelerating climate change? How can a gas we can’t even see cause that? How can we even be sure that such an alleged gas that we cannot see and cannot smell even exists?”

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos responded by issuing a statement that she planned to do or say something really stupid to quickly regain the mantle of dumbest Trump Cabinet member. Although Pruitt really threw down the gauntlet with his CO2 position, we have complete confidence in Betsy.

Bad News? Maybe I’m Just Being Shellfish

Here’s some bad news from Popular Science …


If it is bad news, it is really “popular” science? Anyway, for those of you with an aversion to link clickage, the article basically says that warmer oceans create neurotoxins in algae that are eaten by shellfish that are not affected by the toxins, but then the shellfish could be eaten by us with deadly results. Great. Thanks, Obama.
