  1. Giants Won Yey! And before East Coast baseball fans react, no it does not happen only in San Fran, it happened in Philly and Boston too:

  2. Maybe they could elevate above ground parts of the highway and rail off the rest. Would that satisfy both sides?

  3. This Boston fan salutes you S.F. Congratulations on breaking a 54 year dry spell.

    And Tim Lincecum is pretty easy on the eyes ;-)

  5. @RatBastard: I'm more of a Buster Posey fan.

  6. I'd love to see Aubrey Huff in his red, rhinestone studded "rally thong".

  7. Yeah, I second Posey...but,something too conservative and 'clean cut' [if u know what I mean] about him for my tastes. The Freak is definitely more my cup o tea.

    Huff and his each his or her own ;-)

  8. Riots in San Francisco in which people light a bus on fire, police were attacked, buildings vandalized, someone shot - over a baseball victory!, economy falling apart, banks foreclosing homes with greedy investors and stock brokers rape the world, a woman gets trampled on and kicked in the head by tea partiers and the demand an apology from HER, grown men and women Republican and Democrat alike blaming each other and literally calling one another names instead of working with one another, global climate temp's and weather patterns are out of control from human-kinds raping of our planet, gays attacking gays like vultures, disease spreading through unsafe sex again as more and more gay men use manhunt while demanding "marriage rights" yet most can't commit to a monogamous relationship, wars over natural resources disguised as wars for "democracy", hatred for our President's race disguised as a "disagreement" over policy for some (not all), smaller businesses are closing daily while the world becomes one big "Walmart", education system falling apart due to lack of funds creating less opportunity for future generations to excel in life and creating more ignorant (not dumb, diff word) people to prey upon in "fear induced" elections, gay teens killing themselves over being bullied while people revel in their deaths and other gay men and women seem more concerned about their god damned circuit parties and Grindr accounts (and spare me, typing about it on Facebook is not action, put down the drinks and needles and go out and actually DO SOMETHING) - need I go on?

    THE WORLD F^&KING SUCKS and it's not getting any better! Every day I wonder if it's even worth it any more...

  9. Yes, cory...some of those things you mentioned actually matter (the dating habits of gay men are sub cognitive, if you ask me...the dating habits of all men...the habits of men). Human nature, when understood properly, is enough to want as much distance from it as really understand it, though--aside from the occasional rant or melodramatic blog post. It's not even "evil" or "good" or anything so interesting. To soberly confront it every day, and live with it. It's not something you want to help out most of the time. But, it makes no difference. What gets a lot of people going who endure the mindless white noise of the majority, and many in the minority (people in general) to stick around to stick to them. That has its own rewards, and it is absurdly petty, but there are few things in life that aren't...very, very few things when you learn to separate the value idiots place on things to what is to be valued. So stick around, and maybe you'll be able to really fuck with them, too.

  10. Mankind has virtualy destroyed everthing he has ever touched. FUCKED IT UP ROYALLY!. Please don't tell them that they can build oversized 'Turtle Tunnels', like was proposed in the western U.S.
