#1 Beto wants "real change" and identifies as a man for the a moment.

#3 Shouldn't he start on the bipartisan issue (male and female alike) for bogroll?

I mean there must be a shortage of arsewipes?

#4 I have a theory about Beto.
He married a heiress - envisioning a life of ease & luxury. But wife's family pushes him into politics - to increase family's fortune. So this is his version of work-to-rule.

#8 Tampons for bullet holes, now cheaper than ever. For those living in the inner city or California, this would be a major cost savings. Surely they'll be singing about this on YouTube the way a previous generation sang about presidential help with mortgages and heating bills, or whatever it was that electing Barack Obama to the presidency would get them.

#9 TW beat me to the bullet hole thingy.

I thought it was the Bee too. These people... they're either really stupid or so egoistic they think the public is dumber.

#10 TW beat me to the bullet hole thingy.

Not from personal experience, Dron66046, but it has been discussed here along with other useful makeshifts.

Here is one you might find useful, from 2007:

Instead of Gatorade
In the Sonora Desert in summer, with water consumption about 5 gallons per man per day, we got into the habit of carrying around ampules with a mix of 1 teaspoon each of sugar, salt and baking soda.

When added to 1 quart or canteen of water, it would instantly absorb through the stomach, while keeping your blood salts balanced, though it tasted like crap.


Trailing daughter #2 took a supply of this mixture with her on a 500 mile bicycle trip she made with her Baha’i youth group (long story, but she was one of the founding members, along with a friend who was a member of the faith). She was the only one who didn’t get heat exhaustion along the way.

#11 Perhaps it’s that Republicans are Nazis, unwanted Democrats are Russian tools.

#12 I was a Tang™️ boy myself.

Hmmm... Bahaí Bab kissers, eh ? My sympathies for the hard times she musta given you.☺ Pesky teens.

#13 She was a wonderful teen. The other kids considered her their Wise Jewess, and consulted her opinion on everything. Td #2 used to tell me their discussions, and then we’d talk about the Jewish perspective on the subject. She looked up the Baha’i group at her university but was severely disappointed at how close-minded they were, unlike the group of friends she had clearly influenced for the better.

#14 Well, God bless your little wise Jewess.

I found the Baha'is abjectly dumb. Like hindus.

#15 Ours in America are sweetly earnest and ignorant as pigs in mud about the religions they claim to be the endpoint of. Td#2 found herself frequently pointing out that the latest thing they claimed to have invented we Jews had been doing for 3,000+ years. But Baha’i is a 150 year old Muslim heresy from the depths of Iran, so it’s understandable the darlings haven’t got a clue. On the other hand, they have no drive to jihad, so that’s a nice change.

#16 Yes. That, and their initiative in reforming what they could of islam, by introducing equality of the sexes and and opposing genital mutilation of women. They were too effete for the hair-on-your-chest islam of the common sasquatch though. Maybe we should give them an option, our muslims. 'You can become Bahaúllah sect muslims, we have no problem.'
