  3. Can't wait for Frankenstein! I've become such a big fan of Daniel Radcliffe since his Potter days. Recently added "The Woman In Black" to my collection and thought he was brilliant in it (was a fantastic movie both as a thriller and as a period piece). Adding to the cake that he's also a staunch LGBT ally and is wickedly charming, all you need is some icing... which he handily provides with those dashing good looks and otherworldly blue eyes.

  4. That backwards "N" on the sign at the New Hampshire hate house is priceless, and I'm delighted to be living rent-free inside the head of the 'phobe who owns it. It's like a shrine to our existence and we're getting someone else to pay the mortgage, insurance, and taxes.

  5. The Barbara Walters link isn't Barbara Walters, it's more Daniel Radcliffe.

  7. Blowjobs are the only reason to visit brick-&-mortar libraries, anymore. Just watch. The fundies will soon be calling to have libraries torn down, just to stop the blowjobs.

  8. ObamaCare was SUPPOSED to have signed up 800,000 paying customers by now. In case you don't keep up, they haven't even managed how the insurance companies those 100,000 signed up for even get paid. But it's no matter, because the majority signing up are jumping on medicaid and not contributing a dime.

    Real sustainable system you got going there.

  9. Not too sound harsh but Radcliffe looks so old for someone who was a child a few years ago. Jesus wow.

  10. The several states with actual well functioning websites of their own are about on target for signing up people, and at about the target numbers of non-Medicaid and various age groups including younger people. But most of the states that bothered to do their own website screwed them up to various degrees like the feds.

    So anyway, it looks like it's all about the websites. And of course some reactionary states didn't raise the Medicaid income limits above their previous way below poverty income limit.

    What some Americans have against the US, the richest country on earth, joining with every other advanced country on earth and getting everyone in some kind of medical coverage is beyond me. The ACA is even the most conservative of all the various ways to do it.

  11. Funny, Mach 100 sounds so much more impressive than 80,000 miles an hour (which sounds impressive if you're not dealing with open space and things like the speed of light (double that PER SECOND).
