Not to be that lorry, but wouldn’t that be a lorry full of pounds?

In all fairness, he did tell her not to move. If only she had listened.

i heartily concur with the above. it was much more satisfying poking around the website after having been sent the mystery link. i am somewhat disappointed that others have felt the need to pass along the info as tips.

I should note that, in all fairness, I have not yet watched Obama’s speech from last night. So, maybe it is ultra disappointing in a bone-crushing sort of way?

June 16, 2010 on President Obama’s Oil Spill Speech Or A Deer Showering A Cat With So Many Kisses

You’re right that no one said anything about impossibility, but everyone was certainly thinking it. Just recall the euphoria that most felt the morning of November 5th. This was supposed to change everything, which, frankly, is a less than realistic perspective. I don’t deny that I myself am disappointed; I felt that same euphoria. I even feel class rage now and again. Obama is, however, only the most visible element of American democracy (not even the element responsible for its laws). One should note that this is an era of career politicians where every political figures takes those steps expedient to being reelected. No one goes into office to do what needs to be done. No one wants to both raise taxes and cut spending; that’s tantamount to political suicide (an awful term indicative of the political realities of the day). But that is what needs to be done to get the problem of the debt in order. Being disappointed in Obama does not make you “a fucking zombie,” but isolating him as the (sole) source of your political disillusionment ignores the realities of contemporary politics. He is only the most visible element of government, not its only efficacious element.

If you have impossibly high hopes for a public official, disappointment will most likely follow by default.

An unruly crowd. It’s always “an” before a vowel sound (although not necessarily before a vowel letter (e.g. a university)). It’s for the purpose of breaking up strings of vowels into segments that are more easily distinguishable.

Umm, Dave-android, I believe you should take a little time to peruse the site before launching into minor tirades over what a site did or did not mention.

November 9, 2009 on New Best Coast – “When I’m With You” & “This Is Real”

Well, I think we’ll all have a right to consider The Office the worst if Dwight’s identical twin cousin ever gets introduced because, as I understand it, twins typically involve just the one womb. Science?

Ugh. Will TV execs stop trying to send utterly despicable TV characters to Brown? Leave us hippies be. I’m glad they didn’t follow through on this one.

also, the only thing worse than this poster is the poster for just about any large-budget french comedy. “coco”? “cyprien”? ugh.

i think the last line is “they no longer remember” or “they remember no more” rather than “they don’t remember anything.” (ils ne se souviennent rien).

otherwise, good work.
