The Age Of Steam

First sighted at Defense Tech. Video stolen from the Mirror:

Russian ship cruising through Channel is so close
it can be seen from The White Cliffs of Dover

And the rest of Fleet Street trying to stoke fear while mocking the old smoker. The Torygraph, from sources:
One Royal Navy source said: “All their ships look shiny on the outside, but are pretty horrid on the inside. You only have to look at the smoke she’s belching out to see not all is well.

“We have had people on board Russian ships in the last 10 years or so and it’s always a bit of a shock. The conditions inside are pretty manky.”
There'll always be an England, we guess.

Two Words We Like: "Bleak Future"

As in:

Today's Brutal DDoS Attack Is the Beginning of a Bleak Future

One question: Is a bleak future worse than no future?

The Price I've Paid for Opposing Donald Trump  —  Trump's alt-right trolls have subjected me and my family to an unending torrent of abuse that I wouldn't wish on anyone.  —  I distinctly remember the first time I saw a picture of my then-seven-year-old daughter's face in a gas chamber.

What it's like to experience the 2016 election as both a conservative and a sex abuse survivor  —  “Should we pick him up?”  The preacher pointed to the side of the road to a hitchhiker.  —  “No!”  I shrieked, but the idea was intoxicating.  I'd lived in a one-festival town my whole life.
Fucking morons. This is exactly what your little friends are like: Hate-filled racists, bitter & filled w/ resentment. Don't pretend you're any better, hypocrites.

"Just Pull Them Little Strings ..."

"No puppet. No puppet. You're the puppet. No, you're the puppet."

From the YouTube comments: "Every cholo's national anthem."

Correct Thinking Thurs.:
Death From Above

Who sez millennials don't get it?

Trump? Clinton? Many young Americans prefer giant meteor, poll finds

Were you a Yankee (or other) yout' when Mr. David's "Young Americans" was popular? If so, you're hill-aged now.(Maybe I shouldn't pick on the yout' & their omnipresent 'phones so much; they're going to be getting it good & hard
for the rest of their lives. Although said lives may not be as long as lives used to be; at least they can look forward to
an earlier death.)

Live-Avoiding The Final Debate

We are also ignoring the entire sordid event in real time. Real Americans are watching the Cubs-Dodgers game anyway,
even w/ Joe Buck calling it.

Could not find an image of Odin humping a camel, so today's joke has been postponed. Probably for eternity.

Term Limits & Other Trivia Tues.

Found here, uncredited. Shame!
What sort of idiot, at this point, could possibly give a flying fuck about what idiocy issues from which flapping gums? Three endless wks. until the revolution starts or fizzles, another inane Q&A w/ the candidates planned tomorrow (Surely no one will watch this one.) & ... need a third stupid something here w/ which to come to some sort of point/conclusion about the numbing inanity that is existence among the humanoids.

Today In Trump's Chumps:
"Got a revolution!
Got to revolution!!"

Heard this one before?This big-talking, small-brained maroon is a likely first candidate for Hillary Reëducation Camp.
And if Trump doesn’t win, some are even openly talking about violent rebellion and assassination, as fantastical and unhinged as that may seem.

“If she’s in office, I hope we can start a coup. She should be in prison or shot. That’s how I feel about it,” Dan Bowman, a 50-year-old contractor, said of Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee. “We’re going to have a revolution and take them out of office if that’s what it takes. There’s going to be a lot of bloodshed. But that’s what it’s going to take. . . . I would do whatever I can for my country.”

He then placed a Trump mask on his face and posed for pictures.
H.R. Camp, sure ("LOCK 'EM UP!") but even more likely to end as a red spot beneath a tank tread, or bleeding to death while crying for his "mama". (If he actually tried whatever he can for his country beyond idle threats. Not bloody likely, wouldn't you say?) What a fucking punk.

So bring it on, Dan. Bring it the fuck on. I, for one, can not wait to exercise my Second Amendment right to self-defense
all over your anti-American ass, you seditious loser.

(Gee willikers, I just get so angry. It's as if I were no better a human being [Whatever standard that may be.] than Dan Bowman, 50-yr. old contractor & foaming-at-the-mouth idiot. Although in all fairness, he certainly started it.)

Dude, How High ARE You?

The Latest: Trump Suggests Clinton Was on Drug During Debate
  —  The Latest on the 2016 presidential campaign (all times EDT):  —  Donald Trump is accusing rival Hillary Clinton of being on some kind of drug during the last debate and says that both candidates should be tested for substances ahead of the next one.

Candace Smith / ABC News:
Trump: We Should Do a Drug Test Before the Debate  —  Donald Trump said today a drug test should be performed on the two candidates before the third and final presidential debate, implying that his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton may be on drugs.  —
“I think we should take a drug test prior to the debate.
Rebecca Savransky / The Hill:
Trump calls for drug test before debate … on Saturday called for himself and Hillary Clinton  —  to take a drug test prior to the third presidential debate.  —  During a campaign rally Saturday in New Hampshire, the GOP presidential nominee compared himself and Clinton to athletes.
Really, Sniffles? Is this projection, deflection or attacking your enemy w/ your weaknesses, reverse-Rove style?
One must wonder if he can calm himself by Wednesday's Prexy Forum, or if the health event all decent people have been praying for will make Trump explode on stage (if not before).

Wrong Wrong Wrong:
We Beg To Differ

Kornheiser, Wilbon. Screengrab.
Catching up on our tee vee viewing, we heard this exchange between sports geniuses Michael Wilbon & Tony Kornheiser on yesterday's Pardon the Interruption, concerning last night's Dodgers-Nationals game:
WILBON: "There's ... there's no ace from the Dodgers coming out in a Superman uniform."
KORNHEISER: "No, Clayton Kershaw's done for the series."
What a pair of rubes. AHEM!

Roberts went against usual practice and brought in closer Kenley Jansen, who is rarely seen before the 9th inning. Jansen got himself in trouble a couple of times but hung in until the 9th, only leaving after he had thrown a career-high 51 pitches and put two runners on by walks.

Enter Clayton Kershaw, the Dodgers ace starter making his first relief appearance in years. He had pitched two nights earlier, making 110 pitches then, so this was a very unorthodox move by Roberts. It was Kershaw's idea, Roberts said after the game. His lefty got the Nats most dangerous hitter, Daniel Murphy, who had done so much damage to the Dodgers in the playoffs last year, while he was still with the Mets, including two home runs off Kershaw. This time Kershaw got Murphy to pop up for the second out. The only batter left on the Nats bench was rookie Wilmer Difo, and he was no match for Kershaw. He struck out swinging. With that, the Dodgers advanced to the National League Championship Series and will face the Cubs.
Take that, Washington elites selling America's sovereignty to the international bankers & rootless cosmopolitans!

Twenty Torpor Thurs.

Actually alliterates better w/ Tues. What. Ever.
And not uh akrit xlation from the Cyrillic, neither. Blame Google for offering it under "torpor", w/ all the hamsters.

Crummy N.F.L. Game Of The Wk.

No actual point in picking one as the Thurs. Night concussion-fest is inevitably the crummiest; for whatever reason we remembered it this wk. & tuned in to see Denver's Glow-in-the-Dark Humanoid Cheetos vs. San Diego's eleven in their all somewhat-electric blue uniforms. Looks like three-yr. olds in their jammies.

Weasel-Dick Wednes.

This is a new one on me:
Leigh Ann Caldwell / NBC News:
Major GOP Donors Are Asking Trump for Their Money Back  —  Donald Trump's big-dollar donors asking for their money back, NBC News learns 2:52  —  Two big-money donors who have given or raised tens of thousands of dollars for Donald Trump are livid at the Republican presidential nominee …
Can't say I've ever heard of the sucker-ass chumps requesting refunds before. I wonder if any more of Trump's Chumps will beg their Dear Leader for their money back, leading to amusing post-election litigation.

Go Canada!

One fabulous Monday, two reasons not to work.
We're glad Toronto, Ontario's Blue Jays swept the Texas fucking Rangers; Canuckians may also want to give thanks (As always, to whom, exactly?) during their early harvest gratitude fest (Didn't someone once advise us that gratitude was a very canine emotion?) that they aren't United States citizens & are not caught in the quadrennial electoral cluster-fuck of their retarded southern neighbor, other than as innocent bystanders/unfortunate collateral damage.

And shame on Christophorus Columbus a/k/a Cristoforo Colombo a/k/a Cristóbal Colón a/k/a Cristóvão Colombo.
Just look at what he started!
Do not be confused by the National Geographic Society fantasy version recounted above. Purty, 'though.
