OT, but I went upstairs to ask my wife if she'd watch an old sci-fi movie with me before I went to bed. She asked which one. I told her "The Cyclops". Even sitting there with one eye bandaged, she laughed. Then she suggested something that I couldn't do. Good night folks.
@nflfoghorn, ding ding ding!! We have a winner.
@sacredhWas it the same thing you told the MIL's pastor?
@nflfoghorn, we're dvr'ing the Beatles special. We'll watch it tomorrow night when her patch is off.
Careful, Sacred could take that in more than one way:)
@nflfoghorn, I was just joking, but I think I am going to watch it. It haven't seen it in years.
@nflfoghorn, she's not feeling well at all. Her eye lid is swelling and pressing against the patch. plus, she's trashed.
@nflfoghorn, goodnight all. The Cyclops it is.
I'll butt out here, but I hope she's ok.
I'm off to see the Wizard.
[in an inappropriately grandiose @collioure-style announcement]
I hereby announce the top three winners of the most dangly, serpentine gerrymandered congressional districts!
The Totally DSGCD Award, which looks like a hugely blown up Star Spangled Spriochete embedded in Lucite(R).
[flabby drumroll, punctuated by derisive raspberry]
@Sue_Nhas provided dramatic example featuring raw visual savegery:
Houston: The tooth and claw fight between the 29th, which apparently has seized the 18th by the neck in Houston while the 7th and 9th are involved in a bloody dismemberment of the 2nd.
Nature is red in tooth and claw, after all!
@nflfoghorn.and the long and winding 5th Congressional district.
While not showing the savagery and sheer bloodiness of the Texas districts submitted by Sue, it is certainly the longest of the dangly, serpentine abominations sprouting from the forehead of the GOP mindset : The epitome of how to keep minorities from exercising political power.
Number One and the winner of this years Totally DSGCD award is......
@Robbert5.and his totally dangly, serpentine sinuous 12th Congressional District from Kayntuckey, y'all!
This one, while not as long as the @nflfoghorn's submission, takes the prize narrowly, and I do mean narrowly, because the 5th in Floda has fat parts, whereas the slinkyness of the 12th is unabashedly uninterrupted from end to end.
Please accept the Star Spangled Spirochete in A Chunk of Glass on behalf of the Queendom of Ivy!
While @NP042's submission shows the savagery of Nature, Read in Tooth and Claw, with the Pennsylvania's 6th nearly succeeding in chawing the 7th in half, it just barely fell short of the feeding frenzy depicted in Houson, Texas.
Don't forget that the Colorado River saws throught the Triassic, Permian, Carboniferous, Devonian, Silurian, Cambrian and pre-Cambrian strata before finishing out in the Vishnu Shale dated at 1.7 billion years.
The evolution of life can be traced from Chuaria to the paleocology in the nearby Petrified Forest at the dawn of the dinosaurs.
Your bagger friends won't be happy at all about that.
Not pompous enough. Sorry.
@sacredh I'm sure they'll use their own archived footage....
Bernie Shaw hiding behind the curtain.
Bob Novak grumbling about the haircuts.
@nflfoghorn, we bought dvds of all the Ed Sullivan shows that featured the Beatles. They've held up amazingly well.
A la Crocidile Dundee: Now THiS is a map.
@nflfoghorn So now they're drawing Florida districts to look like Burmese pythons?
@Sue_N @nflfoghorn Been that way for years, unfortunately. That's how Ander Crenshaw and Corrine Brown stay in office - Corrine gets all the blah people. It was an upset in '12 when Cliff Stearns was kicked out of his district by GOTP veterinarian Ted Yoho.
