Thursday? They had it wrapped up Tuesday before lunch.
Is neb hiding in shame over the Bieber incident? His Belieber status must be wavering?
Heard he drove down and posted bail for the lad. Serious one on one.
I’m not hiding, Coppernicus. My resolve has never been stronger.

Roll call!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Last person to chime in will be reincarnated as Anthony Weiner’s inflatable doll!
Can’t be fast enough…
Tag… Hiya, Caller!!!
Hey, what if nobody else chimes in!? 😯
then it’s you—-just pray Wave shows up asking what I meant 😀
I’m gonna fill that doll with helium and chase it around the house!
No, you get filled with helium while Weiner chases you. You can’t change the rules.
No weiner gonna chase me, nuh uh.
Pray for wave.
See that line down there? Don’t go below that line down there.
:mgrgeen: In dinna do nuttin.
poo on mrgreen
The next person will be last.
Greetings, however you are the last person posting.
What does that mean? Did I miss something? Is it a bad thing that I’m last?
No, just carry some inflatable tube patches…one can’t be too safe you know?!
Sounds like your setting me up for something bad. I always come prepared, should I also bring a Phaser rifle?
it’s a formidable force you will face.
I sure hope it isn’t your albino midget posse?
Greetings, Bubba!! It is great to see you. I hope all is well, how have you been?
I’ve been OK but busy. Second week of a new semester.
Has something happened concerning Gramma? I’ve been gone.
Ever though about a career in Starfleet? A dedicated person like yourself would fit in really well.
Gramma’s daughter has been causing her a lot of anguish lately.
Thank you for the update about Gramma. As for Star Fleet … it’s kinda funny, I am taking part of my training over the internet through an actual Academy! haha
Yes! What are you studying to be?
Computers. An evolving technology!
I just read an article about how that field is now more prestigious that jobs in the health sector! You got the right idea! Keep at it!
It’s a trap!!!
Greetings, Orcas! I’ll fight my way through this trap!
My thoughts and prayers go out to you Gramma.
x mee too!
Indeed. Hiya, neb!
Greetings, CG! It is such a treat to see you! How’s it going?
I’ve noticed that no one is calling Justin Bieber a thug. Funny how that works.
How goes your day? I read a few articles earlier about Mark Hamill saying something about a plot-twist in the upcoming Star Wars movie, he didn’t go into detail though about it. Also, I read Carrie Fisher has signed on, but that really isn’t a surprise, she made a small reference about it.
I think any attempt to divine what Disney will do would be pure folly at this point, but I’m keeping my spear sharp.
True, but it would be really hard for them to mess it up any worse than the CGI fest of the prequel.
Yeah, that’s the thing. At some point Lucas decided that he was going to make Kid’s movies. The original was certainly not, it was a space opera, complete with strangulation, torture and smoldering bodies in the desert. Usually not the typical fare one sees in a movie for children and Empire strikes back was even more dark. But eventually he decided to go with walking teddy bears and jar-jar… so there’s that. Can Disney screw things up even more? You bet they can, but Lucas has done worse. I hope anyway, we’ll just have to wait and see i9f Disney chooses to mangle the franchise even further. I’m a skeptic.
I did think that the political angle in the prequels was nice, I wish he would have expanded on it more instead of going the Jar-Jar route. You make a great point about it turning into a kid’s story, the pod racer scene was a mess, the only good part during that was when the Sand People were trying to snipe the racers.
Disney in my opinion needs to it with their holier than thou approach. After awhile it gets really played out when they try to be to kid focused, make a real family movie that portrays a world that ins’t so spotless and squeaky clean for once.
He was arrested for impersonating a musician.
In that case, justice has finally been done!
Ha! So true! It’s kinda hard to see Bieber as a tough guy while wearing ridiculous outfits and sunglasses. And who smiles like that in a mug shot, except a candy@$$?
He was trippin’ balls, man!
Sorry for the semi-encrypting wording.
I suffer from Huffy Poo PTSD.
His handlers told him to do that, bet on it.
Merely a small case of affluenza – nothing to see here.
Well, that’s much less severe than entitle-me-bola. Hi gas.
😀 😀 😀
Alright now, I know you all are getting your chits and giggles about Bieber being arrested, but drop it right NOW. Enough of it, leave it be…or else.
Yes, there is that…but…slightly upthread is the carefully laid trap.
Does this mean I’m an inflatable doll of Carlos Danger?!
prolly! Time for a phaser or some kind of alien weapon.
I can send out a whole fleet of Vorcha Class Battlecruisers to protect that young man. I’m good friends with Emperor Martok.
Oh, you were talking about Anthony Weiner, sorry I’m on edge right now with all of this hate being directed at Justin Bieber.
This is not a laughing matter, CG. Not funny at all.
I heard he cried like a “Baby, baby, baby…” when they locked him up! 😈
You think this is really funny don’t you? This isn’t funny at all, Haruko.
Canadian gangsta! https://scontent-a-sjc.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/t1/p261x260/522462_617979248249110_1154452854_n.jpg
Bwahahahahahahaha!!!!! That’s the one!!
he can’t handle that much horse power.
Pathetic. All you have are insults.
Don’t push it, Pluto.
Before it is lopped off.
Although the jokes are a plenty, in all seriousness, if this guy was an average 19 year old — drinking alcohol, taking prescription drugs, and drag-racing — wouldn’t we be like, “The boy needs help before he goes down the wrong path beyond all help”?
True, but to single him out because he is a talented and inspirational figure going through a rough patch doesn’t take away from the fact that there are at the least maybe 30% of all teens going through the same situation with the drug intake, yet they aren’t being hounded like he is, but you are right, we should be worried about him and we should join together and support him in his time of trouble.
Yes, we should try to support him. With some good advice and tough love. I don’t think Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, or Lindsay Lohan understand where their choices will take them. Consequences can be a bite, later in life.
That is a good point. The trappings of fame and constant attention 24/7 by those trying to earn a buck of another person’s success would make a normal life difficult.
It has me thinking of Michael Jackson – another kid who never had a chance.
I keep calling him the male Lindsey Lohan.
Saw a interview with someone close to the Jackson’t many years ago, said pretty much the same thing about his “eccentricities”, he grew up in a very alien world to the vast majority of people the idea that he somehow would have been “normal” (like every-day people), pretty much immpossible. He never saw the “ordinary world”. Had no experience with it.
I think Michael Jackson got badly broken very young.
I think you’re absolutely right about that.
Well, the average 19-year-old isn’t driving a Lambourghini who got filthy rich despite an astonishing lack of talent.
Anyone who pretends to be Tupac Shakur… http://hisnamewasmarshall.wikispaces.com/file/view/Tupac-Shakur-vs.-Justin-Bieber.jpg/313223880/Tupac-Shakur-vs.-Justin-Bieber.jpg
Can’t feel sorry for him. Simply cannot: http://i.huffpost.com/gen/678404/thumbs/o-JUSTIN-BIEBER-570.jpg?4
Is that a link from that site we don’t mention anymore?
Just an image.
White kid from the Canadian suburbs … pretending to be a gangbanger. See how well that act works in jail.
I’m sure his “class” never see the inside of a -real- typical merican for-profit industrial-jail-complex jail. But if somehow he did, I’m sure the prisoners would enjoy making him “sing” with that slim hairless milky-white little pretty-boi body….
the site that dare not speak it’s name? 😉
I’m with you, he “made his bed”… Alll those close to him making their mad-money off him should have intervened, there’s no excuse.
Quite a difference…
Hi, EVERYBODY. It got busy here just when my daughter called me.
Like the atomic phone. Hope she is doing fine.
Yeah, but we really miss each other.
I like your avatar!
Hi again, Caller!!! Hope she’s doing well.
Halloo gastoo!!! She seemed to be in a good head space.
I gotta keep Darths differences in mind one has a fro so it’s the cop.
Always there are two.
My future’s so dark, I gotta wear shades.
Feelin woozy, I haven’t slept well in two nights. Sorry I can’t stay and play.
Oh, gosh get some sleep.
Take care, Caller. If you continue having problems getting to sleep pick up a dictionary and start reading from it, doing that has helped me in the past when I couldn’t get to sleep.
Oh, no – I hope you can get a good night’s sleep Caller.
Major stole my comma!!
Good grief – what are they thinking>???
the people who are for that kind of thing just don’t think it’s all about their batshit-crazy-ass “beliefs” with those people.
I see many a bums have not awaken!
One of the interesting things with Jake Barnett is that he was nurtured at a very young age to pursue the things he loved instead of being forced to assimilate to a banal cookie cutter world (of shit). How much genius has been thwarted by parents who sought to mainstream their “quirky” children ? We can only wonder.

Japan runs 8K video broadcast test, makes your new 4K TV obsolete
Some amazing things going on in those -real- first-world countries!
So true…those two countries are moving forward while we are going in the other direction.
Last year went to Seoul the City of calm, amazing experience folks are friendly, welcoming.
Well I think it comes down to the ever-encroaching corporate-fascism we have, those countries haven’t let their corporates run things. It must be wonderful to live in such a place! I wouldn’t want to live in Japan I don’t think from what I’ve seen. I think they’ve let the companies have too much, and the culture seems very strange in so many ways. The old traditional culture seems amazing so refined, but the modern world has strangely mutated their culture into something I think in many ways has gone the wrong direction. I would luv to live in 1 of the sane European Social Democracies, no doubt! They have cheaper better higher speed internet then we have I know. And those countries all seem to be fully aware that life is about living, people, society, culture and not numbers in a corporates precious-and-holy spread-sheets.
Not been to japan as yet had several opportunities now I regret..have several japanese friends still very much in touch with. My experience with every single one of them is great,but living there is another issue and you are right on that.
Seoul however is very livable place…something interesting besides other things. Here in US of A , so many that I know are into Buddhism but unless the whole family involved that may not be sustained . In South Korea..older generation are mostly Buddhists. Our hotel was in Wall St ( business) region, yet ten minutes walk is one Buddhist temple, amazing…place..
I would love to go back to the City of Calm again…
Buddhism is such an impressive “religion”(though that word in the western sense isn’t really correct as you’re not supposed to worship, or believe, but practice and find out for yourself). Such logic at the heart though I’m not at all certain about certain assumptions beyond those basics. The traditions of sanity, logic, scholarship very impressive.
