Drugs between your buttocks? Not mine!

Honestly, the headline could have been written for Fark.com.

Deputies: Man denies drugs found in buttocks are his

Based on that headline, you do have to wonder whose buttocks the drugs were found in.

The quotes get even worse:

“The white stuff is not mine, but the weed is.”

Selective buttocks hiding? Who else has access to this guy’s buttocks?

No. Please, don’t answer that. I really don’t want to know.

financial page eye candy?

okay ... she doesn’t rival Drew’s earlier post but ... oh boy. I like her anyway. But that isn’t the whole reason for the post.

I came across this in the financial pages, of all places.  Had something to do with .....

Imperial Leather owner PZ Cussons was sporting a healthy glow after spending £62.5million on fake tan firm St Tropez.

But it was red faces all round at LDC, the private equity arm of Lloyds Banking Group, which sold the brand at a loss to the £70million it paid in 2006.

St Tropez, which owns 30 different ‘spray on’ and ‘wipe on, wash off’ products, has been trying to shed its reputation for turning minor celebrities, such as Strictly Come Dancing’s Kristina Rihanoff bright orange.

Pretty boring stuff some of it. Maybe all of it. Except for those figures. Yikes.  They lose 70 million like it’s pocket change and they can still remain afloat.

I never heard of this dancer before, and this turned out to be the best photo of her I’ve seen. Didn’t care much for others. Maybe it’s the hair and the pose.

As Time Goes By

Horry Clap. it’s October!!!!!!!



Ok, it looks like the Take A Guess post was a bit of a FAIL. I was hoping for far more participation. Eh, maybe next time. Partially my fault; the room pic was close to impossible to guess.

Answers:

1. The room in the picture is the library at Montpelier, James Madison’s house. In that room the conception of our Constitution took place, and the first rough drafts were penned there. So figuratively it is the room in which we were both conceived and born, because that “we” is the WE. The We The People we.

Lot more pics of the restoration and the plastering are right here.


2. So the “somewhat related” topic was finishing interior walls. Just about no one does plaster walls these days. Sheetrock dominates. Drywall. Drywall is gypsum cement paste between two pieces of cardboard-like paper. It comes in 4x8 sheets, 48” x 96”. You get a bunch of sheets of the stuff, screw them to the studs, and you have a wall. Granted you then have the long and tedious task of taping and sanding ahead of you, but overall it’s still a lot faster than plaster. And it can be done by nearly anyone; no artisan level skills are needed. Plaster walls were great in their day, but they were done mostly by craftsmen with artisan level skills who earned peanuts. Today’s artisan gets paid for his skills, so hiring a master plasterer is nearly the same cost as hiring a lawyer. And that’s why people use drywall.

One very nice feature of drywall is that the long edges are tapered. When two sheets are mounted on a stud wall so that their long sides meet over a stud, those tapers form a wide shallow groove. The groove is taped over and filled by several layers of a kind of plaster (eg spackle, drywall compound) and sanded flat. When done properly the seam between the two sheets becomes invisible. But drywall has a shortcoming: only the long sides are tapered. This means that inevitably, when a large wall is being covered, at some point the untapered end of a sheet is going to meet up with another untapered end. This is called a butt joint. For the longest time the idea was to cut the sheets so that their butt ends met over a stud, where they could be very carefully nailed down and the joint taped and covered ... but since neither sheet was tapered, the covering created a lump. So a whole lot of effort went into filling, sanding, feathering, and extending that lump to crazy widths (sometimes as much as 3 feet!) to camouflage it. But it was still a lump. And lumps suck.

This is where our gizmo comes into play. The standard thicknesses of drywall (3/8” - 3/4") are somewhat flexible. In America wall studs are usually 16” apart, though in the rest of the world they vary from 12” to 24”. If you screw a sheet of drywall to the studs so that the butt end is hanging in mid-air between 2 studs the end will wiggle. Butt 2 sheets together like this and you will NEVER be able to make a good seam between them because they will ALWAYS move about. Enter our gizmo. It is called a butt hanger. Like I wrote, that’s a marvelous and crude name that is guaranteed to give you some kind of twisted mental image. To use it you first screw on your drywall sheet so that the butt end always winds up between the studs. Then you screw on a butt hanger, then butt up and screw the next sheet to the studs. Then go back and screw the second sheet to the butt hanger. Because the edges of the butt hanger are higher than the bit of lath in the middle, screwing the ends of the sheet of drywall to the lath forces each sheet to bend in a little bit, resulting in a wide shallow trough that can be taped and filled just like the sheets that meet tapered edge to tapered edge. Ta da, NO WALL LUMP. And it saves a whole lot of labor. Sweet.

image

The plywood version works the same way. It’s call a rock splicer. Boring name. They can be purchased or made on the job from scrap plywood and cut to whatever length necessary. The ones longer than 48” are for situations where 3 sheets meet up; the little bit of lath on the extended end bends a bit of the 3rd sheet edge down so that a trough is formed between all 3 sheets. If you are fortunate to have a tapered edge on that 3rd sheet you can just snip off that extra bit of lath.

How did I come across all this? By looking up How To Finish Drywall. Because that bathroom project of mine was not done when I got the tiles in and the wallpaper down. The walls were in pretty poor condition, and it’s been a whole lot of spackling and sanding since. We got as far as getting the first coat of paint on, then found several more spots to fix that we couldn’t see when the walls were covered in white primer. So more spackling and sanding for me, oh joy. And I figured that there had to be a better way. Alas, there isn’t. But if I was putting in new drywall, this gizmo would be a better way. They cost about $7 each.

I think Mick_from_Naperville had the best guess, as this gizmo is a bridge of sorts.

well talk about barking moonbats … as if things aren’t stupid enough … there aren’t enough bats

No kidding BMEWS readers.  If the powers that be in this country can find different ways to do themselves in, they will do so and happily wave as their ship sinks.

Keep in mind that not every Brit goes along with the lunacy.  I don’t believe most do.  Not the ones I speak to anyway.  So how does this stuff happen?  I’m at a total loss to explain it.  It’s way beyond pc gone amuck.

Imagine this guys ... you own a business and two ppl are sharing a gag or a comment.  Someone overhears what is being said AND ... they can charge harassment under a new law if they say it offends them.  And that’s the least of a law taking effect today, a law pushed thru by the previous govt. under that hag, Harriet Harperson. (Harman) I tell ya, they are getting flakier and flakier here.

However .... here is something even dumber.  Oh, you didn’t think things could get dumber? Well in Spain, men are to be allowed breast feeding time off.
You could not make this up.  Govts. are just plain stupid when it come to common sense and going overboard to ensure that all people and all things MUST be equal. 

Seems that since women are given an hour or so to tend baby, then husbands also must get equal time.  Just what they’re supposed to do during this time isn’t stated.  Maybe join wifey dear and watch? Oh yeah, they still get paid for the time off. I think it’s called Spanish Practice. Pay but no work.


Death of the office joke: Coalition enacts Harriet’s PC equality law which means ANYONE can sue for ANYTHING that offends them

By Daily Mail Reporter

New equality laws masterminded by Labour deputy leader Harriet Harman have come into force today, threatening to create a political correctness minefield for recession-hit businesses.

Under the Act, vegans, teetotallers and atheists are to be given the same protection against discrimination as religious groups while gipsies and travellers will get special favours because of the ‘many socio-economic disadvantages’ they face.

There is also a provision which extends protection from third party harassment, meaning employers have a responsibility to shield their staff, where possible, from abuse by customers.

This has led to fears that bosses could be sued for jokes or comments that staff overhear and find offensive - even if it is not directed at or about them.
The Act, which ministers claim will help stamp out pay discrimination, have been slammed by employer groups who claim it will cost £189million to implement.

firms will be banned from asking job applicants about their health, while new protections for disabled people will make it easier for staff who have taken a large number of sick days or who look after elderly relatives to win unfair dismissal cases.

The Act will also make is easier for staff to claim they were discriminated against because of disability because they no longer have to prove they were treated less favourably than a non-disabled colleague.

Tory and Lib Dem ministers are still arguing about whether to implement Miss Harman’s notorious plans to force local authorities to discriminate in favour of the poor in order to narrow income inequalities.

The plans were hailed as ‘socialism in a single clause’ when Miss Harman unveiled them last year.

READ ALL OF IT HERE

UPDATE ... I goofed in a way. What way?  Well ... it wasn’t the Spanish that enforced this law.  I read it wrong.

The mandate to enforce was done by ....The European Union Court of Justice in Luxembourg

can anyone spell “sovereignty?” Anyone care anymore?

seems like the only things that changes is, the stories get more bizarre and more maddening

See if this doesn’t make ya see red.  Good grief.  How the hell could any authority allow this to happen.

I can’t help but wonder if there’s more we don’t know about but .... after all.  The property is hers.

As for the squatter ... when you see the words ‘council house’ be sure and read it as, “welfare housing.”

Squatters do not need the protection of any law.  They need to be shot.  But hurt em first.  No one shot one kill.  Make em very sorry first, that they made their last mistake and stole their last property. 


Homeless and penniless, the mother-of-two forced to spend £50k to get squatter evicted from her house

By Daily Mail Reporter

A mother-of-two has been left penniless after spending £50,000 fighting a 15-month legal battle to get a squatter evicted from her home.
Dy Maurice, 50, was homeless for a year after a tenant secretly sub-let her house while she was out of the country.
The new tenant then declared squatters rights on the £250,000 property and refused to move out.

She had to hire a lawyer to obtain a civil court order before the bailiffs were called in to evict the squatter, while renting some place to live.
The house, in Cheshire, has sustained £20,000 worth of damage and the property value has been reduced by £80,000 to £170,000.
It is believed the squatter is now living in a three-bedroom council house.

Ms Maurice said: ‘This law on squatters rights is totally and utterly disgraceful and damaging, soul-destroying, and it’s time MPs realised this.
‘I will not stop until this law is removed and the police have every right to remove any squatter who has not got a contract for the property in question.
‘I will commit all my power as long as it takes to rid the country of squatters’ rights. It’s so illegal. It’s ridiculous.’

Ms Maurice had bought her home in 2001 but moved to Dublin in June 2007 to run a beauty salon, renting her house to a local businessman.
But when she called to check everything was alright, she was informed that the man’s business partner was now living in the property instead.
Ms Maurice, who has two sons, immediately flew home but the new tenant refused to let her in her own house.
She called police who told her there was nothing they could do. She then began legal action.

Ms Maurice, who is currently unemployed due to ill health, said: ‘I was furious. I was livid, angry, distraught. I flew back to Dublin extremely upset feeling helpless dealing with the police, solicitors, trying to work at the same time here basically exhausted physically and mentally, but determined to win my home back.
‘It cost me a fortune because eventually my rent contract came up so I had to go to a B&B because I couldn’t come home. I was desperate to come home and get my life in order.
‘Then the squatter told police he was going to move out. I gave up my job and flew home. But he still refused to leave. I was homeless.’
She eventually won a court order at Macclesfield County Court to have the man evicted.
Bailiffs forcibly removed him a month later.

When Ms Dyson returned to the house, she found that wires had been sliced on the alarm system, stains around the fire and ruined soft furnishings.
All the kitchen equipment had been removed.

‘This has been devastating and cost me my life savings. I have even been visited by debt collectors looking for this man,’ Ms Dyson said.
‘They came to collect items to the value of his debts, they thought I was his wife and I had to show them my passport to actually basically say to them you must be joking I’m not this squatters wife. I’m the owner of my property.

‘It’s impacted the value hugely because everyone knows in this area that this place has had a squatter and it’s had debt collectors at the door. It’s put a bad mark on my property.
‘If I would have been five years older I would have had a heart attack.’

bbc radio on ground zero and … are spooks keeping an eye on bmews?

Is BMEWS being monitored by folks in Waterlooville?  I’d say good afternoon but as you know, it isn’t. Rain and more rain and wind and more predicted.
But is suits me. For now. 

OK ... the post.  No embed because there isn’t one for BBC Radio. In any event, it runs about 28 minutes and concerns itself with:

The Report - Ground Zero Islamic Centre

The plan to build an Islamic Centre near Ground Zero has polarised the US and become a key political issue. Linda Pressly explores the fallout. Could it change America?

This was broadcast last night.  It’s very interesting, and Pamela Geller of ATLAS SHRUGS was interviewed on this program.

somali scum caught with “detailed instructions on how to construct a ball-bearing suicide vest”.

What can I say about this? What can I add?  Not much if anything.  It speaks for itself.
The only consolation if any, is that at least the press isn’t reporting this piece of filth as, British.  So far but stay tuned as that could change.

As Lyndon and Chris have pointed out on more then one occasion, there are way too many would be jihadists who live or have lived here, being described as British.  BS!  The press and this includes the normally conservative press as well, continue to report the arrest or the deaths of “would be British suicide bombers.” This is based on no more then the fact that those animals lived here for awhile.  I guess if this darky gets a trial and if it goes on for awhile, before long they’ll start referring to the beast as British of Somali origin.  Sickening and maddening.


British brothers ‘behind Mumbai-style plot’

Two British brothers are said to be “at the heart” of an al-Qaeda plot to launch Mumbai-style terrorist attacks on the West.

By Duncan Gardham, Security Correspondent and Rob Crilly in Islamabad

source but NOT Brits!

DAMN IT!  They are NOT British!!!! No fuckin way ...

Anyway ... this is just the tip of the terrorist iceberg faced by this island nation.  There is currently a serious terror alert as authorities have uncovered serious plans for attacks here, France and Germany, along the lines of the military style terror attacks that took place in India last year.
Or has everyone already forgotten that one?


Guide to making suicide vest ‘found in accused’s home’

Published on Fri Oct 01 11:48:24 BST 2010

A step-by-step video guide on how to make a suicide vest was found at the home of a Somalian-born man in Leicester, a court has heard.

The 26-minute guide was among a cache of “terrorist videos and manuals” on computer files discovered at the home of Musse Yusuf, the Old Bailey was told.

They were stored on hard drives found by the side of a fridge and in the garage of Yusuf’s home in Higgs Close, a jury heard. The “vast” amount of material included a 1,000-page al Qaida manual and instructions on how to make bombs and use guns, said Max Hill QC, prosecuting.

Further files included the “Al Qaida fitness training manual for new recruits” and “instructions on how to attack Jewish people”.

Yusuf, 33, denies four counts of having documents or records for terrorism, relating to four examples of what was found in the computer drives.

Mr Hill said: “They are terrorist videos and manuals. The videos contain practical information on the making of suicide vests, improvised explosive devices or bombs, and the manuals entitled The Mujahideen Terrorist Handbook and The Mujahideen Explosives Handbook.

“Amongst this was material which suggested support for the cause of al Qaida in Iraq and in Afghanistan, also purported justifications for martyrdom operations and material encouraging jihad to be waged around the world.”

Nearly 200,000 files were found on the hard drives, said Mr Hill. They contained “wide-ranging instructions on how to carry out military activity through the use of bombs, guerrilla warfare, firearms and improvised explosive devices”, he added.

The court was shown parts of one video giving “detailed instructions on how to construct a ball-bearing suicide vest” including footage of a “test detonation”.

Also found was an al Qaida manual of more than 1,000 pages featuring instructions on “intelligence and counter intelligence” as well as bomb making, with diagrams and plans.

can anyone reasonably explain why this creep should even have a trial? To determine what exactly?
