Weekend Open Thread

| September 30, 2022

It seems that a sizable percentage of the US population is too trusting of certain media sources. When presented with the facts, they dismiss these facts as conspiracies, baseless opinion, nonsense, etc. A good way to see the true nature of the Democrats is to listen to what they say about their opposition. Enjoy your weekend.

D’oh! Hack got a bit too cocky, and those Semi-Fascist Ultra MAGA Adorable Deplorables dropped the page early.

Commissioner Wretched

Now see, that’s what I call paying attention. I popped in just to see what was up, and the WOT had already dropped.

So the King of Battle is back on the throne yet again! That means many wonderful things, not the least of which is … it’s time to drop the trivia column. Rats of the Cong, KoB!

KoB

Keeping your eye on the target and your hand on the lanyard will ALWAYS give you a successful FIRE MISSION FIRE MISSION FIRE MISSON, CW. If I could only be as good at EARNING the Crown of FIRST on the Coveted TAH Friday Weekend Open Thread as you are at bringing us deplorables your fine Trivia Presentation each week, life would be good indeed.

In Tribute to the successful overthrow of the tyranical, despotic, crayon/Elaine munching, no Software selling (but reputedly soft wear wearing), Director of Media Operations, The King of Battle, THE King of First opens up his Class VI and other Frosty refreshing beverages Stores to all hands. Bowls of vegetable beef beast soup, sans sugar southern cornbread, chicken wings, and orasted porked beast all around. Cheesy grits with bacon and shrimps will be up for mid-rats.

A Special Toast to all of the Adorable Deplorables of Team TAH for giving me the drive to be FIRST!…as they are in my heart! SALUTE!

Hack Stone

Missed it by 5 seconds.

Your SECOND PLACE Trophy awaits you in The Ladies Room. Because of the successful Time on Target Fire Mission, Hack Stone is now Hack Pebbles. BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM

Why does ninja keep moving the SECOND PLACE aka First Loser trophy to The Ladies Room?

Damn! I’d just been testing not 2-3 minutes earlier. And because it was 5 minutes to D-Day, I thought I could come back in a couple of minutes and still have time to try for WoT First. Came back at 12:58, and behold! The WoT had already dropped. Damn!
Rats-of-the-Cong to ya, Gun Bunny! The King of Battle sits securely on his throne once again….for the moment (uneasy lies the head…..)
Now where’s the imbibables and cat’s heads?

Cat heads, country ham, with Red Eyed Gravy, and cups of Hot Joe will be available FIRST thing in the am, Tox. I plan on walking the perimeter of COP CRC Timber Ranch, looking for potential Bambi poachers. This afternoon’s delights are posted above. Since the Himacane dropped the temps by about 20 degrees, I got a little more intimate with my smoker today. Couldn’t let that green pecan limb that blew down Wednesday go to waste, now could I? Did the yard bird arms, the porcine beast, and the cornbread on it whle the beef beast soup percurlated lowly in crockett pot. Frosty Yuengling while you wait to be served?

It’s like the Olden Days with KoB Atop the Hill, but not like the Olden CAVE days when *I* was the Pharaoh.  😄

The difference is that the Army digs much of their equipment below the surface because they want to. When most Navy equipment goes sub-surface, it’s a very bad thing.

A fine young lady, then, was marrying a Navy guy who wanted to have the reception on a boat on the Upper Dells, a beautiful place and a great tourist trap area in central Wisconsin.
She refused, wisely, because he was a Submariner. She feared that he would take the boat out there and sink it thinking that he could “DIVE DIVE, DIVE just to make it an exciting and a memorable Marriage !!!

Did you know tracers work like roman candles and M80s really are grenade simulators? (Shocked, I tell ya.)

Uh uh. I know what you’re thinking. “Did Hack Stone get first post for the TAH Weekend Open Thread or only fourth or fifth?” Well to tell you the truth in all this excitement I kinda lost track myself. But being this is blog is comprised of Semi-Fascist Ultra MAGA Adorable Deplorables , the most sarcastic veterans in the world and would troll you until you sob like the little bitch that you are, you’ve gotta ask yourself one question: “Do I feel lucky?” Well, do ya, punk?

DID YOU KNOW…?
What Hollywood actress’ invention set the stage for modern wi-fi communications?
By Commissioner Wretched
didyouknowcolumn@gmail.com
 
Another birthday is behind me. I awakened Monday morning to the realization that I am 64 years old and one year away from traditional retirement.

What is this “retirement” people are always talking about, anyway? Does it mean I don’t have to work and still get money?

How does that happen, I wonder? I’ve been gainfully employed since I was 17 years old, so the idea of not doing anything and still receiving an income is rather … odd. Not to mention the fact that …

Commissioner Wretched

What? I had to save money for retirement all these years? Now you tell me this? Oh, boy. With my current bank account, I will be able to retire comfortably for about six and a half minutes. 

Guess it’s time to write another book or something.

Meanwhile, have a go at some trivia for the week. Enjoy!

Commissioner Wretched

Did you know …
… male kangaroos flex their biceps to impress female kangaroos? (You have to wonder if it actually works, though.)

… one of Adolf Hitler’s favorite films was a parody of him? The German Führer (1889-1945) loved the movie The Great Dictator, starring Charlie Chaplin (1889-1977). Despite the fact the movie made fun of Hitler, he had it screened at his private theater at least twice. (Must have been something lost in the translation I suppose.)

… pilots and co-pilots on airlines are required to eat different meals before flying? The idea is to prevent both pilots from coming down with food poisoning. (Wasn’t that part of the plot of the first Airplane! movie?)

Hack Stone

… pilots and co-pilots on airlines are required to eat different meals before flying? The idea is to prevent both pilots from coming down with food poisoning. (Wasn’t that part of the plot of the first Airplane! movie?)

It was also the plot of Zero Hour, a 1957 Canadian film that was inspiration for Airplane!.

In 1950s Canada, during a commercial flight, the pilots and some passengers suffer food poisoning, thus forcing an ex-WWII fighter pilot (Dana Andrews) to try to land the airliner in heavy fog.

What, Macho Grande isn’t entirely original?!

Hitler ? Did you say HITLER?

😅🤣😂

Commissioner Wretched

… humans will never be able to land on Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus or Neptune? Not because we won’t try, but because none of those planets have an actual surface. They are gas giants, with thick atmospheres that get thicker as one descends … but there’s no solid surface. At some point, the gases become liquid, down to a core which some scientists think isn’t really all that solid either. (Now, that’s a real gas!)

… the first person to be processed through Ellis Island was an Irish teenager? On January 1, 1892, the first passenger to disembark from the SS Nevada was Annie Moore (1874-1924). Moore and her family emigrated from Cobh, Ireland. That day was the first day that the Ellis Island processing facility was open. (And the gates swung wide!)

Commissioner Wretched

… players in the National Hockey League are prohibited from tucking their jerseys into their pants? Rule 9.5 in the NHL Rulebook says that it is forbidden for a player to tuck their uniform jersey into their pants in a way that the top padding in the pants is exposed. The rule doesn’t seem to make a lot of sense … until you realize that tucking in the shirts would potentially keep advertising on the jerseys from being seen. The NHL has been toying with the idea of allowing ads on player jerseys. (Money. It’s always about the money, isn’t it?)

Commissioner Wretched

… modern wi-fi owes its existence to a famous actress? Hedy Lamarr (1914-2000) was once voted one of the most beautiful women in the world, and starred in a number of major motion pictures. But Lamarr had a scientific turn of mind, too, and used it to develop a technique of “frequency hopping” with radio waves, preventing their interception during World War II. The system would allow torpedoes to find their targets without being intercepted by other radio systems. Though the U.S. Navy decided against using the system and her patent expired before she could profit from it, Lamarr’s “frequency hopping” radio system became part of the basis for modern wi-fi communications between computers. It also serves as part of the basis of Bluetooth and GPS.

… a name exists for the skin that peels off of you following a sunburn? It’s called blype. (See, this is what I call useless trivia.)

Hack Stone

Commissioner Wretched

I didn’t want to spoil everyone else’s chance to use the Blazing Saddles jokes.

Commissioner Wretched

… volcanoes are named after a Roman god? Vulcan was the Roman god of fire, and his name is used when referring to mountains that spout fire. It could’ve been worse, though … the ancients could have used the Greek name for the god, Hephaestus. (What would they be? Hephaestoes?)

… it is illegal in Switzerland to hike in the nude? (Considering how much of Switzerland is mountainous, it’s pretty silly, too.)

… a city named Rome exists on all of Earth’s continents except one? You won’t find one in Antarctica. (Come to think of it, you won’t find any cities with any names in Antarctica.)

… you might be macrosmatic? Don’t worry, you’re not ill or in trouble if you are. It just means that you have a terrific sense of smell. Dogs, for instance, are macrosmatic. (Smell that? That’s the aroma of success!)

ninja

Speaking of “Vulcan” and Trivia..

CW: Have you ever been to Birmingham, Alabama?

In downtown Birmingham, in the suburbs of Homewood, on top of Red Mountain is a statue of Vulcan in all his glory.

He has been the “butt” of jokes for years, because Vulcan does not wear pants…and “bares” all to the city.

In 1983, there was a plan to cover his rump.

“Plan Set To Cover Vulcan’s Exposed Rear”

https://www.upi.com/Archives/1983/06/01/Plan-set-to-cover-Vulcans-exposed-rear/7001423288000/

That never happened. The last time we paid Vulcan a visit (about 5 years ago), he will still mooning the great citizens of Birmingham.

… a sport called “squirrel fishing” exists? The idea is to catch a squirrel on a fishing line, using a nut for bait. When the squirrel bites into the nut, the “fisherman” then lifts the rodent off the ground. (Then, of course, you have to throw him back.)

… the official state slogan for Nebraska is funny? “Nebraska – Honestly, it’s not for everyone.” (Well, it isn’t.)

… the Frankenstein monster was a vegetarian? As created in the 1818 novel Frankenstein by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley (1791-1851), the monster – who could speak in the novel but could only grunt in the 1931 film – said, “My food is not that of man; I do not destroy the lamb and the kid to glut my appetite; acorns and berries afford me sufficient nourishment.” (Quite eloquent for a monster, wasn’t he?)

Now … you know!

Hack Stone

Frankenstein’s monster was a vegetarian. Adolph Hitler was a vegetarian. Ergo, Frankenstein’s monster was a Nazi.

A bit more trivia for you. In the novel, the monster had a name. It was Adam. As in Adam and Eve, but not Adam from India who Hack just posted about in this week’s WOT.

CW:

In the 1960s, we read Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” via a Classic Illustrated comic book.

Easier to understand than reading her novel.

For your enjoyment, here is the comic!

And let us not forget this 1965 Science Fiction Classic:

“Frankenstein Meets The Space Monster!”

2 Minute Trailer Of Pure Cheese… 😅 

“During a solo space mission to Mars, NASA astronaut Col. Frank Saunders– who happens to be an experimental android– is shot down by an alien warship. Frank survives the attack, crash-landing on Puerto Rico. The space aliens—led by Princess Marcuzan and her putty-eared lieutenant, Dr. Nadir — decide he must die, so they give chase, but manage to only disfigure him before commencing with their ultimate endeavor: steal bikini-clad young women to re-populate their nuclear-ravaged planet!”

Hack Stone

Does anyone know Alex from Senior Benefits Healthcare? The guy is so unselfish, he calls Hack Stone at least eight times a day to ask him how he is doing. Hack’s family never calls, what’s up with that?

5JC

I know him Hack! They have a special program that has just been approved in my state that will bury me for free. But I don’t want to be buried. I also know all of his brothers and sisters as well.

The Last time I talked to him I told him that when I get up in the morning and take a hard pull of whiskey I get my gun out and look at it and think about a reason not to pull the trigger. I told him it was because of the cancer and am only expected to live for a few months. He said I was still eligible for the burial insurance anyway!

I told him that Knowing that he has full faith in me to pull through all of this brightens my day and gives me hope so that I won’t need the insurance.

Then he calls the next day and we start all over.

Hack Stone

Hack tells the guy that he is Hindu, so he will be reincarnated. Will Hack Stone have to pay back the money when that happens?

The latest trend is calling to ask if you have ever been to Camp Lejeune, and if so, you may be entitled to compensation. Hack asks if he can get any money for having to attend school in 29 Stumps.

I am all over this shit since a day or two ago MD61.
This GIANT BUNDLE OF STICKS!! was a frecking couple of striper in my career field and is trying to portray himself as fucking RamboGiJaneClintonBenghazi9/11Man.

I wouldn’t sign him off to suck farts outta C-5 seat cushions and you KNOW, shortly, I’m about to drop the *entire*  As(s)teroid of Insults®™on this motherfucking assbag.
Hold on to your buttholes.   :wpds_mad:   :wpds_evil: 

MarineDad61

ChipNASA,
As discussed over on the J.R. Majewski VG articles
(now 4),
the whole anonymous witness / vouch claim
stinks to high heaven.

I can drop names by the dozens,
not only from boots in the sand in 1991,
but back to the mid 80s in Germany and Italy.

We all can.

And frankly, it wouldn’t take much to get a witness statement / vouch from 1 (or more) of the many.

But not this J.R. guy,
who thinks he’s fit for Congress?

ChipNASA

Yeah, they pulled back when the local media called them on that in the last 24/48 hours saying we don’t mask your identity because this doesn’t rate that kinda scrutiny but we want to interview your source and they went silent.
It’s like DC, anonymous sources said…(i.e. I made shit up and I’m anonymous and it’s bullshit but it plays to the narrative)
Just get the lie out there and then when it gets called out, lie more or claim you know nothing about it or goo silent. You’ve already gotten the gain from the lie and now, like printing a retraction on page 42 below the fold in 1 inch type, it’s irrelevant,
You fed the narrative, that’s all that counts.

MarineDad61

ChipNASA,
We’ve seen the many phonies,
and how/why they fight back.

For any political candidate,
and now J.R. too,
it begins as convincing the voters,
and then,
after being exposed as a military phony,
it’s all about FOOLING THE VOTERS.

This ends poorly for J.R.,
who ends up in his own rabbit hole,
much like Teddy Daniels, and
much like most of the past phonies exposed by VG/TAH.

ChipNASA

AND this motherfucker was in MY career field too.
You can BET I’m taking this personally.

Dunno, API – I’ve seen some who are just glad to have a warm body running under the party banner. And talk all about how good it is to have so many qualified folks running for office.

Our county chair (sweet lady I appreciate) let an unmitigated scoundrel (whom I’ve been acquainted with for 30+ years) run for office. He’s talked a good game, but I’ve known him to not be above breaking rules for his self-promotion.
Fortunately, he lost. Again.
I ‘spect something similar there.

MarineDad61

ninja,
He could win,
but those odds have taken a nosedive.
After tripling down with “classified”,
in a now toss up district,
the pissed off Republican voters
will outnumber the Democrats who vote for Phony J.R.

We shall see.

Hack Stone

Given the choice of voting for a career Democrat or a newbie Republican who either embellished or outright lied about what he did in Afghanistan, Hack Stone would leave that choice blank. Voting for Majewski would be a wasted vote. If he won, he would be a freshman Congressman with absolutely no power to get anything done, and he would definitely be voted out next cycle. At least with the Democrat incumbent, she does have some seniority. Time for the Ohio Republican Party to fold up their tent and work towards fielding a better candidate next time.

Admitting guilt would be the kiss of death. The GOP is generally pretty good about flushing its turds. The dems elect theirs for life.

In 1981, a Canadian Science Fiction film titled “FIREBIRD 2015 AD” starring Darren McGavin and Doug McClure was released.

Ready for the Plot? Here it is…Sound familiar?  😆 

“In the year 2015, the US government outlaws the distribution of gasoline to the public, reserving it only for the politicians, the Military and law enforcement. While it is implied this is due to a fuel shortage, later dialogue rebuffs this stating that gasoline is in abundance. Civilians are also banned from owning or using any form of motor vehicle, and those that do are referred to as Burners, and it is shown that this is a form of rebellion. Burners are monitored and dealt with harshly by the DVC; The Department of Vehicle Control.”

Movie is 1 Hour and 37 minutes long. And it’s free!

Enjoy!

“Wolfie the Grunt takes 8mm movies of a Combat Assault in Vietnam”

“I bought a 8mm Yashica film movie camera during a stand-down when we got out of the bush and out of combat. I took movies during the stand-down and then decided to hump the camera into the bush on our next mission. I took movies during the airmobile combat assault. After blocking out Vietnam for 36 years I decided to use my footage to pay tribute to the 11 men that were ambushed and killed on Easter Sunday 4-11-1971.”

rgr769

Great footage. I visited this infantry battalion about a month earlier in March, 1971 when we were recruiting for the formation of my Ranger company. This soldier’s battalion was part of the 11th Infantry Brigade of the Americal Division, and it operated South of Chu Lai, where the division base camp was located.

Thank You for sharing your experience !

Thanks for that, ninja. It brought back a lot of memories. Hard to believe but young Poe had already been back in the states four years and was finishing up his senior year of college when these events transpired.

It reminded me vividly of the constant role the choppers played in our daily operations. And although today it sounds like a cliche, Poe was one of those whose neck hair stood up every time he heard that “wop-wop-wop” for at least five or six years after he got out. We were the first generation of troopers to routinely ride those worthy steeds into battle.

It also didn’t help that, due to his work, the young Poe’s lived in military towns like El Paso, San Antonio and Pensacola where that redolent sound was frequent 24/7…

I loved that sound when I was out in the jungle because it usually meant they were coming to pick us up and take us back to the division or brigade base camp where we got showers and hot chow. That is except for the re-supply birds, which only came one at a time.

I can still tell the sound of a Huey when I hear one. There are quite a few in operation, even today.

Thank You for sharing, rgr769!

BTW…We were looking for Ole Jimmy Walls and Nurse Maggie Desanti in the film, but could not find them.

Who could ever forget Ole Jimmy? Right. Claw?

Course, Jimmy Boy is not the first Dude to wrongfully claim to be a Cav Soldier and wear a Stetson…😉😎

I still get irate when I think about Maggoty Maggie. When I was in the rear at Chu Lai, one night, I went to the “O” club of the evac hospital. I asked a nurse to dance and tried to chat her up. She responded by looking at my extremely worn boots and pin on collar brass and then said, “we nurses don’t socialize with you guys, there’s no future in it. You will be back in the jungle by next week.” Then she turned and went to chat with one of the doctors. Thus, nurses didn’t think they should even drink a beer with us booney rats, let alone fly into the danger zone. That is why Maggie’s rappelling story is so absurd.

Jimmy Walls sucks balls. Fuck that guy.

In 1979, the Hong Kong Martial Arts Film “Crippled Masters” was released.

The film starred handicapped martial artists Jackie Conn and Frankie Shum as two men, one without arms and another with withered legs, who train in Kung Fu and seek revenge upon the teacher who made them disabled.

The film stars Jackie Conn and Frankie Shum, two genuinely handicapped martial artists, as the film’s disabled protagonists. Shum, a sufferer of thalidomide syndrome, portrays the armless Lee Ho, while Conn portrays Tang.

4 Minute Trailer. You Can’t Make This Stuff Up.

Anyone remember The O’Jays who sang “Love Train” as well as Soul Train?

Check this out. The O’Jays performing on 31 October 2019 with a version of the Soul Train Dance Off.

3 Minute Video well worth watching!

The O’Jays performing “Love Train” on Soul Train a long, long time ago… 😉

Whelp, AWOL again.

Evening temps in the 50’s, day temps in the 80s in the GB AO

Got to get my brother out to sit in the cool breeze and look at the fields.

Also had to get the wetsuit out to hit the pool at the gym. My old surfer baggies just weren’t warm enough.

A number of the local breweries have been selling special Oktoberfest brews. Been enjoying one now and again.

Feeling extraordinarily blessed – I pray you all have a great weekend.

The next time you want to veg-out on YouTube, type “scammer payback” in the search window and you’ll have a nice buffet of videos of people like Pierogi who go after telephone and internet scammers in India with a vengeance, they hack the call centers, erase their files, one Russian Hacker wrecked their computers with a virus, they’re likely the reason I don’t get the amount of scam calls i used to, these people rock, and here’s just a mild sample:

Ninja,
The CEO of National File (Noel Fritsch)
is in bed with PA’s LTGov primary loser Teddy Daniels.

1 – Noel was at Ted’s home on the day Ted was fake “swatted”,
meaning,
served with a Temporary PFA,
and told to clear out and turn over his firearms until the next hearing.

AND,
2 – Teddy was AWOL on his own podcast on Thursday night,
and 2 guest co-hosts filled in,
including (surprise!) Noel Fritsch.

The funniest part, is when Teddy Daniels claims expert investigator status,
says “I did my research”,
and it turns out to be consulting with National File’s Noel Fritsch.
The only “truth” between the 2 of them is lies and conspiracy theories.

Why Are We Not Surprised?

“Army Misses Recruiting Goal; Other Services Squeak By”

I especially enjoyed the article right underneath the one where the Army missed its recruiting goal by 15k. The other article was about the Naional Guard kicking out 14K soldiers for not taking the shot.

A Proud Infidel®™

And higher-ups say “*DUUUHHHHHH*, why we no have enough Troops now?”

rgr769

They seem to be filling the recruit ranks with small females, if that that photo is any indications. That guy without his PT belt is in imminent danger of death or grievous injury, no?

Another TAHer brought this up the other day.

If it wasn’t sad, it would be funny.

“Guardsman Investigated For Chasing Bus, Believing Migrants Were On It”

https://www.armytimes.com/news/your-army/2022/09/29/guardsman-investigated-for-chasing-bus-believing-migrants-were-on-it/

“The actions of a LTC with the Massachusetts Army National Guard are being investigated after local press reported that he followed a bus carrying senior citizens on a trip to Martha’s Vineyard after assuming South American migrants were on board.”

“LTC Christopher Hoffman, 51, saw a tour bus of senior citizens headed toward their East Falmouth hotel Sept. 19 when he noted a Florida sticker on the bus.”

“Hoffman followed the bus for more than 10 miles, terrifying everyone on board..He thought there were immigrants on the bus..

“An incident report by Falmouth Police Department Det. Christopher Bartolomei said Hoffman may have been impaired or suffering from a mental health event”.

“In the video filmed in the inn parking lot, Hoffman is asked if he had been drinking by a police officer. “No,” replied Hoffman.”

“…Hoffman was taken away by ambulance and his truck was towed.”

“According to information from the Massachusetts National Guard, Hoffman, who works full-time for the Guard, served in Afghanistan from 2010 to 2011. He is stationed at Joint Base Cape Cod. His LinkedIn profile lists his job title as administrative officer.”

“In a video from the bus, Hoffman tells the passengers, “I served in Afghanistan, and I’m trying to get an Afghan, and I can’t get him into the country. So don’t tell me you don’t know what I’m talking about.”

ninja,
Another 4 star sheriff?
What’s with all the excessive military rank bling with sheriffs?
Even big city police chiefs keep it down to full bird bling.

For most sheriffs,
a couple of crossed guns or handcuffs pin bling would be plenty.

Yes, and what’s up with those crossed cavalry sabers? Just because you once rode the ponies at the amusement park doesn’t make you a cavalryman.

“An incident report by Falmouth Police Department Det. Christopher Bartolomei said Hoffman may have been impaired or suffering from a mental health event”.

IMHO that’s like saying “Water might be wet, fire might be hot, and shit might stink”, I think it’s more that he’s an attention-seeking shit-for-brains.

The False Commander “Phony” Phil Monkress (CEO of All-Points Logistics) continues to steal from the US taxpayers by procuring goverment contracts based upon his highly questionable and potentially felonious Native American, Navy SEAL and Law Enforcement claims.

All the while his new band of Phildo supporters look the other way as they stuff their pockets with the ill-gotten cash.

Sure hope that Phil Monkress, of All Points Logistics, has ensured that his Navy SEAL bling was safe from the ravages of Hurricane Ian.

Anyone happen to know where JR Majewski plans on holding his campaign victory party? Judging by the size of the crowds attending his recent rallies, if you want in on the post election celebrations you better make your reservations now, those McDonald’s booths can only squeeze in about six people.

Vouch time… for ANOTHER Stolen Valor phony?

Gen. Michael Flynn is coming to my area of PA in October.
Should I show Flynn the VG article below,
and ask if he can vouch for
2 Phony Purple Hearts / Shot in the Chest / Urgent Fury Commando
Thomas William Cole?

Remember,
Cole went crickets,
but his Phony Defender friend on FakeBook
claimed he will get a vouch from Flynn.
Of course, that never happened.

Worse,
Cole’s police chief buddy
went into delete and block mode on FaceBook,
refusing to acknowledge that his buddy Cole
LIED about his service,
wore Purple Heart ballcaps around Boy Scouts,
and sports the PH license plate on his truck (fraud).

Would anyone want to join me at this Lancaster, PA area event,
not so much for the event itself,
but to get to Flynn with the MP/VG prints of Cole?

but getting Flynn on cellphone video saying something like
“I never heard of that guy”
could warrant a VG Page 2 article on Cole.
