      I generally avoid spoilers, but in this case...fuck it.

      1) Destro: "I spent $13Billion Euros from 7 nations and no one stopped to see what the fuck I was building. Please set my head on fire so I can...you know what? Fuck it. I'm going to stop trying now..."

      2) Snake Eyes has lips. What the fuck is that all about? I have the original Snake Eyes action figure in my attic. I don't see any goddamn lips. Why would you design a mask with lips for a character that doesn't fucking speak? Let's also make sure to pack his torso into state of the art, flexible body armor and have him wear Vietnam-era pajama bottoms for trousers.

      3) Duke, you're everything we need in GI Joe, but - goddammit - you're going to have to prove yourself one more fucking time.

      4) Ripcord, you scored second highest of any recruit we've ever seen, but you're the plucky, black sidekick so we have to make you look like a fucking moron until the very end. Look at the bright side...at least we don't have you burn up on re-entry.

      5) Roadblock, you have one of the most devastatingly accurate, vehicle-mounted personal weapons at your disposal. How the fuck do you miss a target that you can clearly see with the naked eye?

      6) Scarlet...you get a pass. You and Baroness were the only characters worth watching in this flick.

      7) "General Hawk"...Dennis Quaid. You lazy motherfucker. You phoned that shit in and you fucking know it.

      8) Cobra Commander was a former used car salesman from Indiana/Illinois/Ohio. Stop trying to Retcon this shit, motherfuckers. You're only fucking it up...

      9) The violence was at the top end of the PG-13 scale, but I wouldn't stop from taking Alexis to see it...if she'd wanted to go. I wish I'd followed her lead.

      I honestly, for one of the first times in my life, feel like someone raped my childhood. Fortunately, my childhood was strong and will find the reserves of intestinal fortitude to make it through this trauma.

      It is entirely possible that a movie may have beaten out Spider-Man 3 in my book as the worst blockbuster of all time...

    • Thoughts in my head.

      "Jeff," I've never heard anyone ask, "why haven't you been posting as much?"

      "Well," I'd like to respond, "the fact of the matter is that, historically, people don't like to know where their breakfast comes from."

      It sounds trite, but the truth is in there. No one ever really wants to know where their food comes from. I'm sure there are a hundred vegans shouting "I know my food, fucker!" and I can respond with utmost certainty, "Even if you grow the shit yourself, you don't know what's in it."

      I do.

      In the past 20 years, the American food service and production industries have been beaten to shit in the press. The same motherfuckers who drink Evian and think it's somehow pure are the ones who shine a blinding Light Of Truth on the mega-recalls of beef, pork and poultry that occur periodically. What these stalwarts will never tell you is that the initial instigators of 99.999% of all recalled protein products is the industry itself.

      More people have contracted food borne illnesses from fresh vegetables and grain products than from beef, pork and poultry combined, but the Vegans and PETA will roll out reams of bullshit from 50 years ago to show that you are going to die the next time you catch a whiff of bacon in the supermarket.

      More marketable product has been destroyed voluntarily by the beef/pork/poultry industries than has ever been tested, noticed, isolated or rejected by the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service.

      The same corporations that everyone is more than happy to rake over the coals are the same ones that wake up every morning knowing that, outside of a precious few dedicated government employees, the sole responsibility of keeping people safe from food borne illness are the men and women within the industry who manage, oversee and inspect the products that you eat.

      We will trash every last pound of meat available if it means keeping a single, AIDS-infected, crack addict from contracting a foodborne illness. Right about now I hear the whining tones of, "But, Jeff...that's all fucking bullshit. The meat industry serves no other purpose than to make rich people rich. If the food was safe, they wouldn't have to recall it!"

      My first response to this is "Fuck you and your ignorant, fucking PETA-driven bullshit." That's a gut response that is usually followed by me punching someone in the bladder. Since I'm not allowed to do that anymore, my next response is this:

      If the system we have in place to protect the public didn't work, you would never see a recall.

      Ever.

      Ever.

      Is the system perfect? Hell no. Nothing is nor will it ever be, but it's as safe - if not, in fact, safer - than that bowl of cereal or that tossed salad you're about to dig into. And we all know how much Vegans love their tossed salads.

      It's something the press will never understand: The industry is perfectly capable of hiding everything that happens within its doors and always has been, yet they choose to let the public know of every occurrence.

      The reason I haven't been posting as much lately is because 50-60 hours of my weeks have been spent making sure that it never even makes it that far. I've been elbow-deep in viscera and I've seen the bacon you're about to love so much hanging on a rail. I'll do it again every Monday through Friday for as long as I'm able.

      You want to know the best part?

      I'm not aberrant in how I do my job. I'm no different than tens of thousands of other people who wake up at 5am every morning and don't get to see their families until 5pm every evening for the sole purpose of making sure you never have to ask where your breakfast comes from.

    • Let me get this straight.

      Ok...

      First, car companies start to go under. As a means of saving money, they start cutting franchises from their line ups. This effectively tells thousands of dealerships that they are no longer authorized to sell new cars...only used. This happened to several hundred dealerships here in Iowa, alone.

      Next, the government begins the Cash-for-Clunkers program which is a huge success for automakers and dealerships...that got to keep their franchise. In the meantime, thousands of dealerships are left swinging in the wind, waiting for the influx of used cars to hit the marketplace...that will never show up because vehicles that are traded as part of the Cash-for-Clunkers are mandated to be destroyed.

      Next, the program makes no distinction between American and foreign automakers, so the benefits to American workers (the people who need the jobs to make the cars for the Cash-for-Clunkers program because the auto companies were the ones laying them off) are suspect at best.

      Lastly, there are now a couple hundred thousand new car owners who went from having a car that was probably paid off to a 3-5 year, (most likely) high-interest loan that they'll be paying for in a shaky economy.

      Please feel free to provide more input because the benefit of this is confusing the hell out of me.

    • Class Reunions

      JeffSon

      It's interesting to go to a class reunion because, unless you've been associating with these people continuously for the past 22 years, you might recognize them, but you really don't know them anymore.

      There's always that inevitable, "So, what have you been up to?" that leaves people struggling to make themselves sound better than the person they're talking to.

      I caught myself doing that last night and slammed the door on that shit instantly. There is nothing glamorous or exciting about my job. I keep people from getting sick when they sit down to eat a meal. That's it.

      Based on a couple conversations I was involved in last night, I don't think I'll be going to my next one. I recognize those people, but I simply don't know them anymore...

      EDIT:

      Magda wanted bewbs. Hers are nice enough that I was compelled to comply...

      Too fucking tired to write up a synopsis.

      Beet red. Busted open one of my toes on the corner of a bed in the condo. Went to a big, fucking waterpark this morning. Made some interesting observations. More on that later.

      All told, it was awesome.

      Good night.

Dude, you need to calm down, I was just asking for your help. Thanks for it, but don't give me flak for asking for your help. You want proof that I didn't neg it? Here, i'll throw you a mod.

      Want to know what's funny bout the pet thing, this is truly the first dog we have really kept since having our clinic. We didn't have any pets for years, in fact we had one client ask us how many pets we had and when J told her none she was upset enough that she quit going to him as a vet cause we didn't have any pets.

      Must be different there, as I've also done cultures of tap water (4th year BioSci major) up here as well. Tap water taken from 8 different homes, including the campus residence and the building's bathrooms produced less than one culture per dish on average, and it certainly wasn't E. Coli.
