I'll let you know what happens when I buy a cardboard cutout of the BKF (Burger King Freak) and hang it outside of Otter's window one night. Of course, that report will have to wait until my body armor arrives.

Hope you like it, the story sort of starts picking up here.

Print out this PDF, fold it up and take it with you when you head on down to Disney World. It's chock full of tips and information you won't find anywhere else. Some of it is actually useful.

My question is this: wouldn't the system be a better place if jurors weren't dismissed just for thinking that a particular law sucks. To me, that's classic jury nullification - which, you'll notice, the government has been trying to eliminate and diminish for years.
I think he should have been kept in the jury pool by the judge. Make the prosecutor use one of her strikes to remove the blogger from the jury her/hisself. I think it might have had a real impact on the kind of trial this guy might have gotten.
The car is so small that if it's highway were a human hair, it would have approximately 16,000 lanes. (That is my math - it's not in the article)

On the 16th day of Ramadan…
Howdy true believers… It is I, Otter… Back from the land of Disney and Hurricanes… A little sun burned but no worse off for the wear. Sorry I haven’t been writing more. I’ve been pretty busy lately. Anyway, Florida was a blast. I had a great time. In the near future look for a handy dandy “Disney Tip Guide” that you can print out and take with you on your own Disney Family vacation! Why keep all this great info just stored in my head, I always say!
For right now I wanted to wish you all a Happy 16th day of Non-Sharia Law Month. I’m doing FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC!
I’ve had pork every day since October 5th!
I’ve had a drink almost ¾ s of those days!
I’ve looked at pr0n about half of those days!
I’m loving my freedom as an American. No one’s tried to stone me to death, slice my head off, or kill me in any other way for enjoying a Pork Pot Wontons, or having a nice tall Weisbeir. Here’s a big old pointing my finger and laughing at you Iran and Saudi Arabia. HAHAHAHA Ain’t it great to be free!
Damn I love me a nice cold beer and a big pile of Bacon!
Anyway… I’ll be writing more soon.

". . . um, can you use those as earphones?"
"Mind if I have a listen"
The potential is limitless, and as an added bonus, more women will be better endowed (musically I mean . . . this girl next to me won't stop hitting me).

This is one of the few areas where I advocate government funding. I think we should spend more money on science and less money elswhere. I think we should build a huge supercolliding superconductor in the U.S. I happen to believe that the advancement of public knowledge is a legitimate interest of government. (Though a lot of other libertarians have disagreed with me).
Anyway, a cool discussion.

"Ohio law says it is unlawful for any proprietor of a place of public accommodation to deny the full enjoyment of the accommodations based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, age or ancestry.
The commission said the English-only rule serves no purpose other than to discriminate against non-English speaking individuals."
Note that last paragraph. See, it does discriminate against non-english speaking individuals, but it does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, age or ancestry. Ohio just expanded their own law. It's going to get pretty expensive if the local hotels have to have full-time interpreters.

The World Is A Safer Place
Meanwhile, an actual crime was committed somewhere else.
This is why I hate cops. Not being a dangerous criminal and knowing that the police will do me no good if I am attacked (especially by them), the only thing they do from my perspective is lower my quality of life. Great, no points on the license, but I'm still out 60 bucks that I could have used for . . . well, any other freaking thing.

* I don't buy the "one bad apple" meme. There are very few "good" cops.
In other news: Otter is in Florida with his family, at Disneyland, so I will try to take up his posting slack this week. Anyway, Scaggsville may be less interesting for a week, but the spelling will be better. . . . Oh, and pray for Mickey - the danger is very real.
Anyway, I hope M.A.D.D. (and the govt.) lowers the BAC limit to .02. Then just about everyone would have a DUI, and no one would care. I certainly don't care already. They'll legislate themselves into irrelevance soner or later.
Update - See this post from "The Agitator." M.A.D.D. is really ridiculous. It will make most everyone Mad.

Anyway, criticism and mockery is welcome. Also, thanks to Otter, this one is formatted so it is easier to read.

"That can't be true. It's way too . . . well . . . idiotic."
"It is true? . . . Right then, the end of the world truly is approaching - I'm sorry I doubted you."
Seriously, here's an excerpt from this article:
"Miller has sold more than 150,000 of his Neuticles, more than doubling his $500,000 investment. The silicone implants come in different sizes, shapes, weights and degrees of firmness.
The product's Web site says Neuticles allow a pet "to retain his natural look" and "self esteem."

I’ve been thinking of posting this here for over a week or so. Only just decided a few minutes ago to finally do it. The link above goes to the first chapter of something I have been working on and off of for quite some time. Recently, I haven’t been all that motivated to do anything with it. I figured some fresh criticism might spur my motivation on.
If you take a look at it, let me ‘xplain some things first. It was a short story that kind of grew. I pretty much have the whole plot mapped out and just need to write it. What you have in front of you is one of 4 complete chapters I have written (there are also 3 more that are in various stages of completeness). This thing is silly. Some parts are more serious than others (not really evident in this chapter), but it’s still kind of silly. Laugh if you can. The style may be weird, but it's how I write. Lastly, the whole thing isn’t written from Tim’s perspective (about 1/2 the chaptes will be).
Here’s a sample:
Somehow, could that mixture of single malt and 70’s cult rock have transformed me into the monster that I had become? Had I accidentally unlocked some ancient rite encoded into soothing sounds of Achilles Last Stand or Piper at the Gates of Dawn? Was that strip of beef jerky I ate the last component of some pagan ritual designed to turn me into a MAN/GOD? Or maybe, I was just a freak. What would people think of me?
Like I said... kind of silly.
If you could real criticism would be more appreciated than “it sucks”… which it very well may. You guys are the first to ever look at this.
Sorry for the slow posting…
No real excuse for me not writing.
HOWEVER, this is mighty important. Seriously, if you haven’t seen Serenity, DO IT NOW. Take off work, lock the kids in the closet with a NyQuil bottle, leave the husband or the wife or even your fruity life partner and get your asses to a theatre.
If you have seen it, shiny. See it again. You know you will anyway.
Serenity is a smart, funny, action packed movie and if your sorry asses don’t see it then there will be NO MORE.
I shit you not, when you do see it, and you will see it, you will be mucho pissed off at yourself for contributing to the death of the FireFly universe. Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE I made sit down with the DVD’s LOVED THEM. EVERYONE and I mean EVERYONE who has seen the movie LOVED IT.
“But Otter, I don’t like things like this. I’m a big fat retard who needs Tom Cruise in a movie before I will see it.”
If that’s you, SUCK IT UP and take one for the team. The movie is full of beautiful people and explosion eye candy. More than enough for you dumpling brains out there.
Really though. The movie kicks ass an you will do yourself a favor by seeing it.Otter
