The perv tsunami

Matt Lauer the latest.  Most shocking for me was Charlie Rose.  Doesn't look the type but rather was more into big tomes he had to read prepping for interviews.  I'm losing track as I need some type of perv scorecard.  Is there an app for that?

  1. It's the new latest fad. Had the cable guy in yesterday and while he was fiddling with the HDMI connector (turned out to be defective) he chatted about the plethora of sex
    harassment. Seems to vary from 'he looked at me funny' all the way up to child rape. To get a handle we need a descriptive range. Maybe something like slight leer, suggestive remark, tasteless joke, inappropriate hug, lewd
    remark, egregious touch, bold proposition, firing woman for
    refusing sex, outright rape, etc. You know, SH-2, second
    degree etc? The far right blogs are aflame with glee about
    Laur, Rose, Franken: want them boiled in oil. But their
    own heros Trump and Moore, every bit as egregious, if not
    more continue unscathed. One who could shoot someone on 5th avenue and still get elected, the second the Godliest man in the Deep South. We need a new fad, Z-Man: anti-hugging.
    I hate touchy-feely and my family and friend term me 'the anti-hugger'. I want my own color and ribbon, maybe plaid,
    for certified non sexual harassment person.

    1. I've ceased following this stuff. The arcane business of taxation and finance. Maybe an air freshener for the HR-V.

  7. Went to a camping store in Paramus NJ the other day. Going back east across the Hudson took the new Tappan Zee Bridge which is now called the Mario Cuomo Bridge. WHERE are the toll booths??? Not to worry though. You didn't get away with anything. It wasn't a free gift from NY State. You get your $5 for cars toll bill in the mail. Now stop for a minute and think of all the massive postage bills the Port Authority of NY and NJ has to pay to implement this system. I'm old school. Let's get it done then and there aka the tollbooth.

  9. You gotta go further westward. "the states of Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Tennessee, Vermont, Wisconsin, and Wyoming have never had any toll roads"

  11. Net neutrality – gone. Not sure if that is good or bad, but how much will it cost to comment here from now on? Was wondering what percent of the male population hasn't been
    accused of sexual harassment yet?

    1. Either this is really going on or feminism has just gotten plain weird. Now Anita Hill is the chairperson of some Committee on Sexual Harassment which didn't know there was such committee. I'm afraid to live.

  13. Saw a TV commercial for a modern vest; numerous and variously shapped pockets all on the
    INSIDE. The idea was to carry your several electronic communication devices in a convenient
    and apparently unoticeable piece of clothing. Said to the Mrs. that I wouldn't need that since I
    have none of those things. She said good, because even if I loaded it with Apples, I-pads, Kindles
    and a pair of matching smartphones, I would misplace the vest. Civilization is rapidly passing me
    by.

  15. Am trying to understand the scientific, medical and religious ramifications of an embryo
    that is about the same age as the mother. By medical definition, an embryo is a growing pre-human
    until about the 10th week of pregnancy, so some religious perceptions that define human as a fetilized
    egg should be interested. From a medical standpoint, any lifeform being in frozen animation for a quarter of a century presents an interesting conundrum: development is non-existant and similar embryos have grown into adults in the interim. Are we messing where we shouldn't? Feel free to pontificate...

    1. I'm on my work break. I'll be late. Why can the average car go 140 MPH?

    2. I've often wondered this myself. Why are manufacturers allowed to build a product that can break the law so blatantly. Do people have some inherent right to do so?

      Can't government prohibit all cars from being able to go above say... 90mph? Yes that's still above every speed limit, but not grossly so.

      I'm guessing liberals would like this... conservative law and order types, less so.

  16. Looks like New Years will be on the chilly side in the Big Apple. Will they get a couple million for the Times Square celebration, or will it just be some Eskimo tourists?

    1. There's FarmersOnly.com. You got your Elite Singles for the older set, Lavalife for the younger crowd. Would Anthony Weiner be welcome on any of these sites?

  20. For the specificity-minded, there seems to be a dating site for everyone . Nothing for the pipe smoker community though.
