Fyodor Saw It

I recently came across this from "Notes from Underground."

"would not be the least surprised if suddenly, out of the blue, amid the universal future reasonableness, some gentlemen of ignoble or, better, of retrograde and jeering physiognomy, should emerge, set his arms akimbo, and say to us all: 'Well gentlemen, why don't we reduce all this reasonableness to dust with one good kick, for the purpose of sending all these logarithms to the devil and living once more according to our own stupid will!' That would still be nothing, but what is offensive is that he he'd be sure to find followers: that's how man is arranged."

Once upon a time a man was tired of the fast pace of modern life and

decided to enter a monastery to gain inner peace. To become a member of this monastery though there was a requirement he could only speak 2 words every 10 years. The first 10 years goes by and he stands up at the communal dinner and says, " Bed hard."

Another 10 years goes by and he stands up and says, "Food bad."

Finally, after another 10 years goes by he stands up and says, "I quit."

The leader of the monastery immediately stands up and says, "I'm not surprised, you've done nothing but complain since you got here."

Happy New Year DUers.

This explains MAGA Aides who can't remember anything. Heard on the news.

They must have been zapped by one of those "Men in Black" Neuralyzers.

Perhaps Tea Party/MAGA sycophant Meadows was

burning documents to indicate, with different colored smoke, to the insurrectionists Chump was still in charge.

Forget VIDEO, keep your eye on the chimney!!

Satire, I think.

I haven't seen an

Amazon Truck in our neighborhood over the last day or so.

Is Amazon OK, or has Musk taken that over also?

As we all think past the wintry blasts of late it's never too late

to remember you can't plant flowers if you haven't botany.

My wife said what is about you and that old chair?

I said hold on there, me and my recliner go wayback.
