George Will Makes Sense – Sometimes

George Will, Conservative columnist

From the Washington Post:  “Barack Obama’s tone of mild exasperation when tutoring the public often makes his pronouncements grating even when they are sensible. As was his recent suggestion that Americans, misled by media, are exaggerating the threat of terrorism.

The world might currently seem unusually disorderly, but it can be so without being unusually dangerous. If we measure danger by the risk of violence, the world is unusually safe. For this and other reasons, Americans should curb their pessimism.” Read more: www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/

One of the best quotes out of this article is from an Egyptian diplomat who says, “Arab nations are like tribes with flags.” No shit – so why does America have to clean up their messes?

Wear Your Underwear At Work

Saturday, February 14th, 2015

This is an actual ad I saw on my RoadRunner e-mail sign-in page. (The comments in red are mine.)

The 360 Sport Trunk is the ultimate active underwear for all day performance. Designed for men who want more out of their underwear. (And who doesn’t?)

Quick Draw Fly™
Horizontal fly for “quick” access when nature calls (Do people who buy these have continence problems?)
Contour Pouch
Unmatched support, secure comfort, and lift (I’d sure like more lift from my underwear.)
360 Degree Stretch
Moves with body in all directions to PREVENT riding up. No ride up alert (What the hell is a ‘ride-up-alert’?)
Zoned Ventilation
Targeted mesh zones to wick, cool, and keep you dry during intense activity (Cool your wick?)
Utility Pocket
Stash pocket for ID, keys, cash, IPod™, etc (For when you sit around the office in your red underwear.)
Anti-Odor Technology
Prevents cause of odor causing molecules (Your coworkers will thank you.)
Wear to the office, wear to the gym, wear to work out (Hell – you’ll never have to shower again.)
Price: $29.00

(Say what? For 1-pair!!  I’ve bought pants for less than that! Oh right – if you wear these, you don’t need pants.)

Damn – now everyone knows what I want for Valentines Day.
