  1. Any man that becomes involved with one of the Kardashian women, usually leaves as a confused train wreck...
  2. . The good times are gone... My brother and I and some friends were in and Diego on business about 10 years ago, and we headed over the border to Ti Juana.. We hit a few bars, and didn't see a single lone American,,, You could just feel a really nasty vibe, and then we heard a pretty heavy gun battle going on... When the shooting stopped we got in the Van and bolted... Juarez is the same way these days... No longer a playground drink up and get a gal... Both towns have become killing fields for the drug cartels, and it's just not safe any more... I spent 6 months TDY in Honduras back in 84... Now those were some great fucking times off base..
  3. I'd imagine you can make them as expensive or cheap as you want depending on ingredients and toppings.... The 7-11 here sells a large cheese Pizza for $5.... The most expensive is $12,000 http://hauteliving.com/2010/03/top-five-most-expensive-pizzas-in-the-world/29487/
  4. I've never had them, but I've eaten Tripe many times... I'm guessing it's kind of similar.... Mom would clean the hell out of it---soak it---clean it again---soak it again---then simmer it for hours in Marinara sauce... On it's own it had no taste, but in the sauce it would absorb that flavour.. It was more of a texture thing I guess.. I liked it...
  5. Salaries are determined by job skills and what they are worth to an employer Shinny... They are not based on lifestyle choices... Entry level unskilled jobs are not supposed to be living wage jobs.. They are an introduction into the workforce.. As I mentioned, when I was 16 I had a minimum wager summer job... I did not expect to buy a home, car and start a family on it, nor did I believe I was entitled to.. A 16 year old unskilled worker isn't worth $30K a year with benefits in the job market
  6. Exactly... They sell it as a matter of fairness, but what do you do with the worker currently making $15 an hour that's been there longer than the guy who was making $10 and just got bumped up to $15... Now the guy with less experience and time with the company makes the same... Does the employee that was there longer now get that $20 an hour because that is also the fair thing to do?.... And as you said, who determined businesses, especially small businesses can cover these cost increases?
  7. Perhaps not... Food Stamp Man out in California was able to use his SNAP Card to buy Maine Lobster & Sushi.... Bernie would probably extend that to King Crab and Shrimp cocktail as well
  8. We used to get this other swill out of Mexico called Mescal... It was like Tequila on Steroids.... You'd be hallucinating long before reaching that worm at the bottom of the bottle...
  9. Another drink concoction I saw in some of the Bars in Korea was something kept on display behind the counters... It was a large jar with a whole Snake in it marinating in some sort of formaldehyde solution.... I did shots on a few occasions, and it was like rubbing alcohol.... They always tried to pimp these potions as fertility nectars.... Sounds great if you wanted to die with a Hard-On
  10. I've never had Chitterlings.... They say you have to spend a lot of time rinsing the shit out of them, then soak and boil them for hours, after which they taste like nothing but whatever you season them with... Sounds like I could boil rubber bands and douse in Hot Sauce to achieve the same dining experience...
  11. Agreed... The Beer was piss.... OB and Crown... We used to drink the Soju served in big bowls with fruit punch mixed in called Jungle Juice.... Quite a few times Jinru left me thinking I'd seen Jesus.... There was another God awful swill we used to drink called Peach Oscar... It made Andre Cold Duck seem like the finest French Champagne...
  12. Understandable how a Pizza can cost $37 in California.... It is probably topped with a copy of Che Guevara's memoires and includes an Aroma Therapy session on the side...
  13. Why does anyone other than you have to pay your way through life?... You hold this absurd notion, that if they had less, somehow that would morph into you having more... A fool's errand
  14. Unions have been shrinking for years, and that has nothing to do with the GOP or any other Politicians Shinny.... Initially the Unions did so much good... I'd mentioned before my Grandfather was a Union organizer in NYC for the Textile Industry in the 30s.. He was also treasurer of his Union for many years... Before he retired, he turned his back on the Union because of the corruption, Mob ties, and intimidation of their own members who voiced an opposing view.... These days, they are little more than extortionists that have priced themselves out of work----see Twinkie Bakers
  15. They had a similar version of what you're talking about when I was in the Philippines---only it was Duck foetus instead of chicken... I couldn't drink enough to try it, though it was a very popular snack...They'd crack the egg open, and it was pretty much a developed Duck with bill & feathers... I'm well aware of the ROK Tigers.. I was at Suwon 86-87, and my Dad was in the war 51-52 in the 25th infantry.... He was a young Lieutenant, and said the only folks more savage than the ROK's he had to work with were the Turks... I lived off-base and had a Yobo ( Korean Girlfriend )... I don't know what smelled worse... The base was surrounded by Rice fields which were fertilized by opening the local sewer systems to flood the paddies, or that fucking Kimchee she brought in the house... I ended up buying a 2nd Fridge for her to keep the Gook food, because everything would absorb the smell of it... We shared Suwon Air Base with the ROK Air Force.. This was also their Basic Training center for recruits.. As you know, a 3 year gig of military service is mandatory for these folks.. I used to watch their Drill instructors just kicked the shit out of those poor bastards.. They play by Big Boy rules...
  16. I know exactly what you are talking about... Usually it was dried Squid that had soaked in a sweet brine prior to curing... It had the consistency of Jerky... I tried it a couple times, but wanted to brush my teeth & rinse with kerosene to get the taste out of my mouth...
  17. For myself, it was a fermented Squid dish I had in Korea.... Apparently the half bottle of Bourbon I drank before hand did little to kill off what became writhing in my gut... It was one of those moments when within minutes, your underwear was wishing it was somewhere else... The dining experience is pretty much lost when you can crap through a tennis racket---and not hit a string.. Now, this said... There are actually competitions out there, eating challenges of sorts to get down some absolutely terrifying foods from around the world.. One that is often mentioned as possibly the worst is Swedish Surstromming... I remembered this stuff because when we lived in Minnesota, we had a Swedish family who would eat cans of it.. It's like half-rotted sardines... People have been known to vomit just from the smell... What is the worst food you have eaten... Below is a clip of 2 poor young dudes from Finland trying to take the Surstromming challenge.. It gets ugly...
  18. I spent close to 25 years in the Restaurant / Bar business, finishing up as a managing partner in 3 Sports Bars.. I also managed for corporate chains... These fools haven't a clue what the operating costs are in this industry.. They believe a business in this industry can absorb the costs of a 300% wage increase for 85% of staff, and there will be no adverse consequences to the business or industry as a whole---especially the smaller privately owned establishments...
  19. Unskilled, entry level work force positions aren't supposed to pay this alleged living wage... If you want to earn an actual living, then you need to acquire job skills to do so.... Salaries are determined by what you are worth to an employer--they are not based on lifestyle choices... When I was 16, I had a minimum wage summer job... I did not expect to buy a home, car and start a family on it..
  20. The Black Lives Matter movement spawned from the legal killing of a violent Black criminal and thug Michael Brown... It was born from a lie... As for the candidates being asked that question, it is just another example of the press and interviewers more interested in a I got Ya moment, rather than actually asking questions that are relevant...
  21. How did you determine that every business and industry operates at a high enough profit margin to pay their employees $15 an hour? These are the ideas and figures that come up from people who have never stepped foot in management or ownership of a business----particularly the restaurant / hospitality industry... Restaurants typically run at a 90% operating cost... Do you believe they can afford to raise the wages of those who derive most of their income from tips such as servers, hosts, bartenders, bussers etc to $15?
  22. I don't know why those accusations are still being made... They have long been disproved.. I live in Palm Beach County----home of that infamous Butter-Fly Ballot, that the Dems insisted was a ploy used by the GOP to confuse & disenfranchise Democrat Voters... Then it was made known the Ballot was designed by our DEMOCRAT Supervisor of Elections Theresa Lapore, approved by a DEMOCRAT majority State Elections Board--- and that afterwards the Ballot was used to test 74 4th Graders who filled it out with a 100% accuracy.. As for the Chads.... Every single hand recount, including that of the Miami Herald using the most friendly of Gore standards still showed Bush the winner.... Remember Gore & Lieberman demanding every Vote must count... Well they were counted again & again and they lost... As for Jeb, he was a solid, successful 2-term Governor here, but not my choice for POTUS
  23. It's good strategy when you think of it... The only qualifications to be POTUS, CIC of our Military and Leader of the free world in our country today is the promise of free stuff, despite the fact it can't be paid for...
  24. If they are playing sports, they are cooperating with each other by learning to function as a Team while also learning to compete... The point is the winning team deserves the Trophy, the losing team's can be given a consolation prize... There's nothing wrong with recognizing & celebrating winning... Where in the rules does it sat the winning and losing teams get the same award?..... Would you prefer they not keep score in kid's sports?

No holds barred chat

  • Hey kfools.. does this help? 


  • By Vegas

    Liberals are going to hell.


  • grgle



  • Where’s at @slideman?


  • Hola


  • I know this one, this new chat thing. I've seen it called the "shoutbox" among other things in my past. Very hard to hide from the chat box. The question is asked, there's no time to go search what other folks think, this is real time. Only seconds should be between chat box replies. This one is made for me. In the chat box one has to be quick on their feet with stuff at the ready. This chat box is the worst nightmare of anyone trying to deal with ol' teach. 


  • By pmurT

    hey @teacher that sounds like too much work for me LOL I need that useless thing called *time* in order to authenticate facts and truths which get posted by deceitful Dems


  • What does the red number refer to? currently, on my screen it says 2

     


  • Where does it say 2?


  • So. In the chat....if you tag a member the text afterwards should be a private message. 


  • How do? I'm teacher. If I'm online and the powers that be can figure out how to make it immediately apparent to me that whatever I've said here has been replied to I'm gonna show up right quick and kick some teeth in. It's the chat box, all this is new and scary. I know this gig. This starts now. 



  • Hey kfools, did you lose your securtiy cert? On my browser it is saying your site is not secure?


  • Mine too. I'm looking into it.


  • Mine too.

  • Just gave to renew the security cert. No big deal I'll do it tonight


  • OK thanks

     



  • Happy Anniversary, America... on your Civil Union.


  • All lives matter.


  • Double post deleted.

    Scroll the other way for a while and you'll see me saying that these days the chat box ain't gonna work as one has to be quick on one's feet. The question is posed, there ain't no stinkin time for ya'll to refer to your betters for the answer, ya'll don't understand these things, this political debate, ya'll don't have the answer at hand, ya'll haven't thought this through, ya'll ain't ready for the next question I'll ask,  ya'll can't handle the pace that a bloke such as I can bring it in the chat box, ya'll can't handle this format.

     

    This one is made for me.

    Being offended does not make one correct.

    "I'm coming to you for ask a quick favor."

    "Anyone that places a color in front of their name is racist." That one is not mine, got it from another member.

    How do I get rid of this chatroom box?

    How do I get rid of this chatroom box?


  • By nuckin futz

    Get me out of Chatbox!


  • By jefftec

    The chatbox stays expanded and is a nuisance blocking screen images. What setting is there to control/collapse chatbox?


  • By kfools

    Just click the no holds barred to collapse it.
