  1. Oh, sorry it was taken down in case IS sees it. Gotcha, shhh, mum’s the word and all that…

  2. hey, does our ZK pipeline turn away in the background or is JR guarding a pipe that not even blanked off?

  3. Easy tips to clean your keyboard safely:

    1, Unplug keyboard power.
    2. Spray PC screen cleaner onto soft tissue (not directly onto keyboard, stupid).
    3. Invert keyboard.
    4. Gently clean with moist, not excessively wet tissue, turning and replacing soiled portions.
    5. Let keyboard dry for a few minutes before restoring power.

    Following these simple steps not only saves you money and time on a new keyboard purchase, it also helps speed the global deflationary collapse and helps save what’s left of the Earth’s precious biosphere and atmo-geosphere.

  4. the story of his business success was based upon frustration that, while on the road, touring with his band, no one had good quality sausage for breakfast. so, he founded jimmy dean sausage company and started with hogs raised on his ranch in virginia. it got to be a better gig than his singing/TV personality stint, the jimmy dean show, etc.

  5. that is very cool, EE, thanks. i did not know both parents shared egg warming responsibilities. i think my background in this area is at the level of Dr. Zeuss’ “Horton Lays An Egg”. troubling, i know.

  6. for some reason, that video reminds me of this damn bee colony that’s set up camp in our garage. they are in the wall and no poisoning or sealing off the queen has worked. i think only physical extraction of the queen and colony will do it, and that means tearing out the wall. or, we could feature a house with a built-in honey bee colony.

    a bee keeper estimated the colony size at 50,000 bees!

    dave, back from the country or did they get cable or cell tower out there?

  7. pretty sure you can set poison in such a way that they drag it into the nest and kill everyone. or seal the garage and bomb it…plenty of ways to kill bees. i’d say.

  8. thanks, i like the garage bomb idea. we can stuff old towels on the sides of the door. must not forget to remove…

    the first pest exterminator told me he had inherited the business from a 90+ y.o. man. i think that was a clue that his poisons may have been a little out of date. time for some fresh black flag.

  9. BTW, for the record, i think it’s terrible to kill honey bees. but we don’t want them living with us. mrs. doom insists that they go.

  10. If these are honeybees the bee removal guy does not poison the bees. If you did that you’d have thousands of dead rotting bees in the wall. The queen has to be removed intact and placed nearby. The rest of the bees are attracted to her and are easy to collect later as they swarm together with the queen. The swarm is valuable to beekeepers, as is the honeycomb. I think its very rare for honeybees to be killed in order to be removed.

  11. gb, you are correct, but to physically remove the bees (all 50,000+ of them), part of an exterior wall will need to be removed and then rebuilt, repainted. we will also have to have a beekeeper present to keep everyone from being stung by pissed-off bees on defense.

    i’m thinking this is what will have to be done. i don’t think bombing the garage will do moron than kill a few worker bees. also, good point about the rotting beehive inside the wall.

  12. Doom! Good grief! At least check out some of the bee resources/conservation organizations to see if they could help you move the colony. http://www.abfnet.org/

    For the last 3-4 years I’ve been regularly signing petitions from various conservation organizations to get the pharmaceutical industry to stop using neonicotinoids in their pesticides because it is outright harmful to bees and there is substantial and growing evidence it is contributing to colony collapse disorder.

    Please, please, please don’t kill the bees!

  13. careful dave, you start posting zappa videos, everyone knows that’s remus bait.

    ee, not to worry, we’re working on the physical removal. i think our homeowner’s insurance might cover part of it.

  14. i like remus. i wish he would come back, tin foil hat or not. i have no control over any of this.

  15. it’s just that like, if you’re wearing a tin foil hat, don’t expect me to not laugh at it…

  16. just to show you who’s in control here, i’m gonna email remus and request he blog here once again.

    eh, if i can find his email address. the fuckin bees are in charge. i’m just a silly ape that walks upright, with lower back pain.

  17. i have wonder why all these pmj videos start out with a viagra commercial, that you can’t skip past. are they trying to tell me something?

  18. JOKE Alert:

    GOTTA PEE

    Two women friends had gone for a girls’ night out.
    Both were very faithful and loving wives, however they had gotten over-enthusiastic with the Bacardi Breezers.
    Incredibly drunk and walking home they needed to pee, so they stopped in the cemetery.
    One of them had nothing to wipe with so she thought she would take off her panties and use them.
    Her friend however was wearing a rather expensive pair of panties and did not want to ruin them.
    She was lucky enough to squat down next to a grave
    That had a wreath with a ribbon on it, so she proceeded to wipe with that.
    After the girls did their business, they proceeded to go home.
    The next day, the husband of one of the women was concerned that his normally sweet and innocent wife was still in bed hung over,so he phoned the other husband and said:
    “These girl nights out have got to stop! I’m starting to suspect the worst. My wife came home with no panties!!”
    “That’s nothing,” said the other husband,
    “Mine came back with a card stuck to her butt that
    said…..
    From all of us at the Fire Station.
    ‘We’ll never forget you.’

  19. ah progress…. aka “development”. like, take a pristine piece of land someplace, in North America for example, maybe the natives treated it with respect for a few millennia, maybe even a few tens of millennia, then along comes some bastard eurotrash that hitched on and survived a boat ride across the atlantic, discovers some cheap-to-extract energy, and then proceeds to pave over that land with new asphalt for parking lots and roads, puts up a bunch of track housing and maybe a few high-rise condos, adds curbs, sewers and storm runoff so the pollution can be conveniently exported to the Gulf of Mexico and then calls this process “development”.

    well, the planet has just about run of of undeveloped places to fuck over. too bad. the end.

  20. Commenting on recent paper by Hansen et al. on climate change, free copy here:

    “This is a tragic situation — because it is unnecessary. We could already be phasing out fossil fuel emissions if only we stopped allowing the fossil fuel industry to use the atmosphere as a free dumping ground for their waste.”

    the fossil fuel industry exists because we buy their products. the real tragedy is people continue to blame “them” rather than realizing humans foolishly think our way of life is non-negotiable. we keep living on massive personal carbon footprints and breeding like rabbits. there is no magic, green alternate. the only solution is far fewer people all consuming radically lower amounts.

    the bottom line is no one cares about what is happening if it means they have to restrict their behavior/status… so all the hand wringing is a nice exercise in cognitive dissonance.

  21. far fewer humans? all consuming less? less than what? i always ask. anyhoo, far fewer humans, all consuming less (than what?) is baked into the proverbial cake. no worries…

    i just wish that joni mitchel and her fucking chipmunk face would hurry up and die…

  22. “Of course, it is not even a job in a factory per se that most Americans dwelling in the rust belt actually want, it is a secure living situation. They want their basic needs met in a way that does not leave them uncertain and wrecked by stress month after month. It is a culture of production organized and operated through the machinations of capitalism that requires that people work a job in order to have these needs met in such a satisfactory way. When politicians say “Jobs!” it has become a Pavlovian response for the middle, and formerly middle, classes to come salivating like starving dogs to desperately pull a lever in their favor. They forget that first the food, and the land, and the ability to provide for oneself had to be taken away before they could be forced to work jobs for these things. A great deprivation preceded the creation of job economies whereby everyone was made to punch a clock and become the automaton of some civilized production scheme in order to have enough to eat and a place to sleep at night. This deprivation now long forgotten, people have no memory of themselves as anything but workers, and so they beg for work.”

  23. i wish i was back in the good old days, when guys would fight over bitches. which are just another resource of sorts…i guess.

  24. Made another breakthough last week. First, we were searching for the ballpark, then we were in the stadium, now we are on the playing field. Next stop, the dugout!

  25. Hint: all you have to do to get a high-precision, accurate number is hold the temperature steady for a known period and make sure to isolate the sample. Maybe heat a bit moron to insure you’ve got all the 4He out of the glass before the next sample introduction. Something like that…

    gonna be a lot of sad faces at the big mass spect producers. maybe have to drop a product line…

  26. re: while trailer trash. it started going south (and out of the country) for them when ronnie raygun was elected. the same yahoos that elected him and their descendents are now suffering from all the the swindles.

    go Bernie!

  27. i do this shit all de time when we BBQ, but maybe you ZKers will also like this. kinda zen, nice to ohm out to. this is why i could never be happy living in a high-rise condo. no place to play.

  28. hey EE, i’m bird watchin’ those nesting eagles. nice pair of chicks. wonder why the parents spend so much time pecking at their nest underside. looking for grubs? appears they eat a lot of fish.

  29. me? review the workings of some gizmo? i would have no idea of what i would be looking at.

  30. “It is part of the three-dimensional chess that is the Syrian battlefield,” he said.

    sorta supports the idea that it’s win-win for the US military-industrial complex no matter the fightng outcome. of course, there’s a real danger to that strategy if a true adversary gets involved. unintended consequences of the unknown unknowns, etc.

  31. hey, i know all about the the known unknowns, like every other asshole out. but the unknown unknowns? well that just seems, just might be, an entirely different story.

    kinda like a grossly contaminated (sic) sample that fucks your shit right up. well, let’s just throw that one out and get a better one. one that we like better…

    something like that…i guess.

  32. “kinda like a grossly contaminated (sic) sample that fucks your shit right up. well, let’s just throw that one out and get a better one. one that we like better…”

    that kinda stuff NEVA happen to moi….. nope, never. we just wouldn’t let it happen, er, uh.
