CONGRATS, KoB…our favorite Rebel!

In a world full of Scarlet wannabes, you are the Melanie. (and a smart man would want a Melanie LOOOONG before he’d put up with a Scarlet). jus’sayin’


Thanks -Dog, just got lucky is all. See comment below. Saw a female in the K Roger a’fixin’ to pick up some Butt Lite. Pointed out to her that Mr. Miller brews his right down the road and hasn’t gone all woke yet. She put a case of Miller’s and a case of God’s Elixir (Yuengling) in her buggy, smiled, Thanked me, and headed out. I asked her ” if I followed her home would she keep me?” She didn’t say no.


But did she call the cops? If not, you might have gotten lucky. Or put to work.

Way to go, King! Two in a row!!


DaHell?!!!? Where’s everybody? A ten (10) count and still a full minute or more. Gots me a TWOFER on the Coveted EARNED NEVER AWARDED TAH Friday Weekend Open Thread. And weren’t even shore that I’d be a contender. Every idiot and his tourister cousin was on the Big Road AND in the K Roger Store. I did manage to put a hurting on K Roger’s bottom line with a total savings of 79.69 USD…PLUS a close out of 100 USD on an Insta-Pot. Been wanting to score one of them boys for a minute now. Plus a $.20 per gallon savings on fuel, netting a cool pert near 200 USD saving to spend on Freedom Seeds. Had just unloaded the Prime Mover, put away the cold stuff and opened up Mr. Chromie and WHOOOMP….There it was, orphaned and needing a home. The King of Battle…THE King of FIRST wishes every one a most joyously safe (True) Independence Day Weekend and is going out to lay the fire to grill your choice of beasts for a proper celebration. Class VI Cabinet is unlocked and the yeast infused beverages are on ice. House Wine is always ready. Pound cake, molasses cookies, and Neopolitan Ice Cream for dessert.

A little something from the “Other King” EAP just to show all of the Adorable Deploreables just how I feel about them. (ie…OAM, ExPH-2, ninja, no bunny, Friend, Farm Girl, etal)


Accounted for and Present….Making headway….made it home just before pretty significant MD/DC/VA storms.
Maybe this will clear all the canadian doobage smoke outta here beefore the REAL doobage smoke starts tomorrow.

Have a great weekend.

Commissioner Wretched

With the King of Battle on the throne and the Fourth of July coming up, the best way I can celebrate both is with another trivia column! I hope you all enjoy reading these as much as I do writing them. Happy Fourth!

Was a popular character in the movie “Ice Age” thought to be made up, until a fossil of one was discovered?
By Commissioner Wretched

So we’re now six months into the new year. (Can we even still call it a new year? It’s halfway through its lifespan.)

Anyway, I hope 2023 is going pretty much the way you want it to go, no matter which direction that may be. For me, it’s had its ups and downs, as all years do.

One thing that perseveres is this silly trivia column, and I hope you’ve already availed yourself of the book spawned from same. Did You Know…? Yet Another Collection of Useless Trivia is still available on amazon.com, and I’m still toying with the idea of a second volume.

You’ve been warned.

Did you know …

… the Grinch was not originally green? Created by Dr. Seuss (born Theodor Seuss Geisel, 1904-1991) in How the Grinch Stole Christmas, the character of the Grinch was originally black and white, with pink eyes, when he first appeared in 1956. It wasn’t until 1966 that he became green – and that happened when the book was being adapted as a television cartoon special. Cartoonist Chuck Jones (1912-2002) made the Grinch green, with Dr. Seuss’ approval, after he had an experience driving an ugly green rental car. (Can’t imagine anything other than a green Grinch now, can we?)

… you can answer the questions “Where?” “What?” and “When?” by changing one letter? Change the “W” in each word to a “T.” You get “There,” “That,” and “Then” – each word answering the question being asked. (Just get someone else to answer, or you’ll end up talking to yourself.)

Commissioner Wretched

… the Theory of Evolution was based entirely on speculation when it was written? When Charles Darwin (1809-1882) wrote The Descent of Man in 1871, not a single fossil that was known to be pre-human had ever been found. Darwin’s theory, at the time of its first publication, could not be backed up by any physical evidence. Since that time, fossil discoveries have shown his theory to be true. (Pretty good guessing there, I’d say.)

… the average American watches 239 minutes of television per day? (I’m way below average here … I don’t watch the silly thing at all.)

… seahorses can move their eyes independently? A seahorse is able to use one of its eyes to look forward and the other to look backward. (Not that there’s all that much to see down there, but it’s a pretty neat trick anyway.)

… an animal character in a popular movie was thought to be fictional, until one was actually discovered? One of the most popular and amusing characters in the 2002 film Ice Age and its sequels is Scrat, the sabre-toothed squirrel which spends the entire movie trying to collect and eat acorns. The animators of the film thought they’d created Scrat – and all sabre-toothed squirrels – out of thin air. In 2011, however, scientists discovered fossil remains of, you guessed it, a sabre-toothed squirrel. Discovered in what is now Argentina, the animal – called Cronopio dentiacutus – was an ancient ancestor of several different kinds of rodents, the species to which squirrels belong. However, unlike Scrat, Cronopio didn’t try to amass huge collections of acorns, because when it lived 94 million years ago, acorns had not yet evolved into existence. (I always wanted Scrat to be able to open one of those acorns!)

Commissioner Wretched

… flirting has rules? There exists a complex set of unwritten guidelines which determine when, how, where and with whom we may flirt. We only become aware of these rules when we break one of them. (And as you know, ignorance of the law is no excuse. It does, however, explain my total lack of success in the area of flirting.)

… TV’s longest-running Western actually had a spin-off series? From 1955 to 1975, Gunsmoke was one of the most popular shows on television, having been initially a radio series from 1952 to 1961. But few remember that it spawned a spin-off series in 1974. During the 1971 season, guest star Jeanette Nolan (1911-1998) appeared as a cantankerous old woman named Sally, with Dack Rambo (1941-1994) as her companion. The character proved to be a hit, and Nolan and Rambo were given a spin-off series called Dirty Sally three years later. However, success on Gunsmoke didn’t turn into success as a spin-off series, and Dirty Sally was cancelled after fourteen episodes. Additional trivia note: Dirty Sally was the last 30-minute Western series to air on American television. (Maybe she should’ve taken a bath …)

… most of the Earth’s gold cannot be mined? That is because 99% of it exists near or at the core of the planet. If you could, somehow, get all of the gold that exists near the center of the Earth, you could cover the surface of the planet 1½ feet deep in gold. (But if you did that, it wouldn’t be worth much, since there’d be so much of it, so why bother?)

Commissioner Wretched

… a term exists for “mis-heard” lyrics in songs? You know the feeling – you are listening to a song and you think you hear something, but the singers are really singing something else? That is called a mondegreen. The term comes from a 1950s folk song, in which the lyrics state, “They slew the Earl of Morray and laid him on the green,” but people thought they heard, “They slew the Earl of Morray and Lady Mondegreen.” (Come on, ‘fess up – we’ve all done that.)

… it was once legal to mail a building? Until 1916, the Post Office had no policy against delivering buildings, but that ended after one man mailed a 40,000-ton brick home across Utah in an effort to avoid high freight taxes. (Can you imagine the embarrassment if your building got lost in the mail?)

… sleeping on the job is acceptable in Japan? Employers view it as exhaustion from working hard. In some cases, people fake sleeping to look more committed to their job. (It’s pretty acceptable around here, too … it must be.)

Now … you know!


On the subject of misheard song lyrics…


Another fine job, CW. The best part of the TAH WOT is your trivia. While the miscreanted d’weeded deplorables of TAH are perusing the ‘zon for your Trivia book, they need to go ahead and pick up your SyFy Tomes. Your writing skilz need to be taught to some of these “reporters” that ‘Ed and I shake our heads at when snagging articles for posting. You can bet that Mason, David, and OAM give a *sigh* or 6 themselves. And while the MDDs of TAH are placing the ‘zon order, go ahead and pick up Mason’s Profiles of Valor, Vols 1 -3. Beats watching TeeVee all to hell.

And it is very, very much appreciated – both the plug and the approval. Thank you, King, and thank you, Ed.

“Michigan House Passes Bill That Could Make Using Wrong Pronouns A Felony, Fineable Up To $10,000”


“A recently passed bill in Michigan could make it a felony to intimidate someone by intentionally using the wrong gender pronouns, according to some legal experts.”

Michigan State House of Representative has passed bill HB 4474, a piece of legislation that criminalizes causing someone to feel threatened by words.”

“Under the new bill, offenders are “guilty of a felony punishable by imprisonment for not more than 5 years, or by a fine of not more than $10,000.”

“Intimidate’ means a willful course of conduct involving repeated or continuing harassment of another individual that would cause a reasonable individual to feel terrorized, frightened, or threatened, and that actually causes the victim to feel terrorized, frightened, or threatened,” the bill reads.”

“The bill specifically addresses “sexual orientation” and “gender identity or expression” as protected classes.”

“According to the bill, “‘Gender identity or expression’ means having or being perceived as having a gender-related self-identity or expression whether or not associated with an individual’s assigned sex at birth.”

“University Dean Claims White People Get More From Social Security Because Of ‘Structural Inequity’


“A prominent academic leader argued Thursday that White people’s life spans give them an unfair advantage in collecting Social Security.”

“Thomas LaVeist, the dean of Tulane University’s School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine, made the comments at Washington Post Live’s “Health Equity” event.”

“LaVeist explained Social Security is the perfect example to demonstrate how structural inequity manifests in American society.”

“While he did not say that Social Security is racist in itself, the dean claimed it is impacted by “structural inequity”.

“LaVeist then suggested that if all other factors are hypothetically the same, White people in America will benefit more from Social Security because they tend to live longer than Black people.”

“The program was developed, but if you look at the differences in life expectancy, if you say you have a Black worker, White worker, they begin working at the same day, at the same job, for the same company, they make the same salary, which might not always be the case, but in this example, they make the same salary. They paid the exact same amount of money into the Social Security system, and they both retire the same day,” he said.”

“Because the White person on average is going to live longer than the Black person, there’s going to be a difference in how much they’re going to get out of that system that they paid into,” LaVeist continued.”


Just a thought, but shouldn’t this guy put more effort into helping the average black person live longer instead of bitching about the lack of equity? Seems obvious to me that living longer means more social security payments means more money. Pretty basic math.


Naw, it’s easier to motherfuck ‘Tha Science’®.

BMI standards are ‘racist’: American Medical Association via NYPost (link).
You see, if we remove any accountability the bottom is the limit, and as exemplified throughout history the ‘bottom’, as it were, of human suffering has no limit.

The correlation of diet, fitness, BMI, blood pressure, resting heart rate, etc to longevity are known and knowable.

Fucking infantilizing fucking black people, especially by black people, is fucking disgusting and infuriating.

And you’d figure if “Thomas LaVeist, the dean of Tulane University’s School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine” was so concerned with longevity, he’d be incentivized to lose a couple extra chins.

Fucking hypocrite race-baiting douchbag.

We not only saw the movie, we read the book (1,000 pages)!


“On This Day In History, June 30, 1936, ‘Gone with the Wind’ Is Published”


“Author Margaret Mitchell published the American classic novel “Gone with the Wind” on this day in history, June 30, 1936.”

“The 1,000-page novel, set in Georgia during the Civil War and in the Reconstruction era, told the tale of Scarlett O’Hara, a southern belle from a wealthy family who lost nearly everything during the war.”

“The book was a smashing success: It was the bestselling fiction book in the United States in both 1936 and 1937.”

“Gone with the Wind” won the 1936 National Book Award for “Most Distinguished Novel” as well as the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1937, multiple sources note.”

“Mitchell, who was born and raised in Atlanta, died a tragic death in 1949 at the age of 48. She was hit by a taxi while crossing the street.”

“Nearly 90 years after its publication, “Gone with the Wind” remains popular in the United States, although it has come under recent controversy.”

“World’s First Flying Car ‘Model A’ Gets Flight Certified, And It’s 100% Electric”


“A fully electric car you can drive on public roads and fly to skip traffic may sound like something out of a sci-fi movie, but Alef Aeronautics is making it a reality. The company revealed Tuesday that its flying car, “Model A,” became the first of its kind to receive legal approval to fly from the US government.”

“According to Alef, the Model A has a 200-mile driving range and a flight range of 110 miles. After presales began last October for $300,000 (with a $150 regular queue or $1,500 priority queue deposit), Alef says it had collected over 440 reservations by the end of the year.”

I’m about to break a long standing tradition to not cite the local bird cadge liner, but they have data (and yes, I understand it could be found elsewhere).

From Hartford Current (link) : Saying strike is “imminent,” UPS gets a Friday deadline from union to come up with a better contract

Frustrated by an “appalling counterproposal” earlier this week, the head of the union representing 340,000 UPS workers said a strike is imminent and gave the shipping giant a Friday deadline to improve its offer.

The International Brotherhood of Teamsters walked away from negotiations Wednesday, demanding that UPS give its “last, best, and final offer” no later than June 30.

Teamsters officials did not say what time the Friday deadline was or what actions it might take if it is not met.

“The largest single-employer strike in American history now appears inevitable,” said Teamsters General President Sean O’Brien, who accused UPS executives of hoarding profits instead of sharing them with workers.

UPS handles… a lot… most?… nearly all? ammo shipments to retail customers.

I’m not say it’ll happen or it’ll increase ammo prices, but I am saying it very well could.

That should be enough data to ‘he who panics first panics best’, or something.

Or, as some would say, “give them the whole nine yards.”

Hack Stone

21 hours late, but Hack is checking in from an undisclosed location, otherwise known as Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling Commissary, because when Hack posts from Stately Stone Manor, his comments go to “awaiting approval by the vast chicken wing conspiracy”.


Just so we are all tracking. 160 years ago to-day:

The Battle of Gettysburg, fought from July 1 to July 3, 1863, is considered the most important engagement of the American Civil War. After a great victory over Union forces at Chancellorsville, General Robert E. Lee marched his Army of Northern Virginia into Pennsylvania in late June 1863. On July 1, the advancing Confederates clashed with the Union’s Army of the Potomac, commanded by General George G. Meade, at the crossroads town of Gettysburg. The next day saw even heavier fighting, as the Confederates attacked the Federals on both left and right. On July 3, Lee ordered an attack by fewer than 15,000 troops on the enemy’s center at Cemetery Ridge. The assault, known as “Pickett’s Charge,” managed to pierce the Union lines but eventually failed at the cost of thousands of rebel casualties. Lee was forced to withdraw his battered army toward Virginia on July 4. The Union had won in a major turning point, stopping Lee’s invasion of the North.

Never forget.


Did they remove all of them evil monuments yet?


Never forget…indeed! Brave men, one and all…on BOTH sides. Been on that field several times, marching shoulder to shoulder, leading from the front, and commanding from the rear. Looking at the tactics of the period and imagine doing battle that way time and time again.

A good example of what a difference one person can make too. What if TJ Jackson had of been leading his Corps that FIRST Day instead of Ewell? Stonewall woulda took the high ground, sweeping the 1st and 11th AoTP completely off the field, giving Longstreet a chance to fight the defensive battle that he wanted to. The political climate of the time would have forced Meade to attack, win, lose, or draw. Or what if Henry Hunt of the Artillery Reserve had not arrived and taken it upon himself to place what guns he could grab upon Cemetery Ridge that 1st night, stopping the few of Ewell’s men that were still in the fight, giving Hancock a chance to bring his 2nd Corps up.

A tactical draw (them dirty (sic) Rebs gave as much as they got), but a strategic defeat (shades of Sharpsburg, eh?). Meade caught grief for not pursuing Lee afterwards, but his knew his men were in no condition to do so.

The important thing to remember is, 50 years later, the living Veterans of those terrible 3 days met under the copse of trees at the stone wall, and shook hands.



Did my OCS staff ride at Gettysburg since it was just down the road from Ft. Indiantown Gap where our OCS course was held. We had Guardsmen representing Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Indiana, Virginia, Alabama, and possibly a couple of other Southern states (memory is getting foggy). When you look at the Regiments arrayed on those fields, you see that the Battle of Gettysburg was a militia (National Guard) battle on both sides.


Jus’ sayin’

Oh, with the volume of their cussing, even through spacetime, it’s shaking the floorboards!

Loud and resolute: FJB!


I will never forget my participation in 1991 as a reenactor in the movie, “Gettysburg.” There were 78 of us with our horses that comprised a cavalry squadron that portrayed Gen. Buford’s cavalry. Plus, I was one of the mutineers in the only movie-extra mutiny in the history of American movie making when Ted Turner’s dipshits thought they could stall paying us for a couple of days. Many of us had to leave Friday night to trailer our horses halfway across the country so we could go to work on Monday. The director, Ron Maxwell, thought if they held up our pay, we would stay and be available to shoot on Saturday. He thought wrong. The huge cav battle scene almost didn’t get shot that Friday, until they showed us the money (we were always paid in cash at $110 per day).

I didn’t point this our back in 2014 when Jonn outed this asswipe, but there are obvious errors on his uniform bling that show he is a phony pony. He is wearing the crossed arrows of the officers’ Special Forces branch insignia, but does not display the Special Forces tab. It is not possible to be assigned Special Forces branch as an office without completing Special Forces qualification for officers, which then awards the Special Forces tab. He also displays the Ranger Regiment scroll but no Ranger tab. No officer would be assigned to the Ranger Regiment’s battalions or HQ who had not earned the tab.
