While we prepare...

...for the imminent arrival of Miss Ladybug for a visit, and watch bemusedly as the Democrats filibuster their own bill (Why, because it doesn't raise taxes enough to fund their fantasy life with other people's money? The key point they don't get - it ain't theirs.), we make time for the following PSA, especially as I am about to embark on an Argghhharita fixin's run.  So, here 'tis, in the appropriately breathless tone reserved for pointless information of doubtful provenance (you know, car and insurance ads and anything pitched by the Shamwow guy):

ALERT!!! ALERT!!!
Vodka and ice will ruin your kidneys.
Rum and ice will ruin your liver.
Whiskey and ice will ruin your heart.
Gin and ice will ruin your brain.
Coke and ice will ruin your teeth.

Apparently ice is lethal!!!

Warn all your friends: Lay off the ice!!

That is all.  We return this blog to it's normal, supine position.

H/t, SWWBO, via Google+, she being the only person I follow over there who actually *uses* it much.

I don't use ice in my drinks.  I keep the beer and soda cold, and the whiskey, schnapps and moonshine in the freezer.
heh

We are all aware that Google+ is yet another massive data-mining scheme from the "Don't Be Evil" folks, right?

No, I don't like Google.

In other news, several of our lovely Republican imbeciles voted a nifty new bill out of committee.  The bill was named the "Protecting Children from Internet Pornographers Act of 2011", and whoever proposed that name needs a good kick in the face.  The bill forces ISPs to maintain databases of all customer names, bank account info, credit card numbers, IP addresses, and home addresses for at least twelve months.  Oh, and that database can be perused at any time without a warrant.  Government agencies will be free to collect all of that data and build a single, massive database of all the information every ISP in the nation is forced to collect on all of their customers, keep that data forever, and access it at any time, for any reason, and without any oversight.  Anyone think such a dishonestly-named bill has any chance of being voted down in the House or Senate?  Yeah, me neither.  *sigh*

Right, enough of me being a downer and back to the alcohol talk.  Carry on!
 
I wonder how long before we talk about America with the same economic tone we use for most South American nations.

DL Sly, You drink beer with soda?

Armourer I use G+ a fair bit bit I guess the circles hide much of it.
 
Beer with ice isn't lethal, but it *is* pretty nasty -- it makes whatever's in your canteen cup taste like [insert name brand here] Lite...

I think that's the plan, Argent, at least subconciously.  They desperately seem to want us to be like everybody else, where only the elite are exceptional, living, as they do, by exception from the rules they lay down for the rest of us.

Like, f'rinstance... the guvamint!
 
 We aren't far from being like Latin America in most aspects. We've already got a bunch of tin pots in Congress, the courts and the WH. Rule of law is gone, unless you are one of the little people, then law applies to you as long as it enhances the wealth and convenience of the "elite."
 
Cort, I remember reading that some Copyright Nazi from the MPAA or maybe the RIAA was at a conference somewhere and saying that his people just loved the idea of child pornography, as it gave them an excuse to have the gummint look on everybody's machine. I betcha they are the guys really funding this. What with 100 years of Deweyite edumacashun, it is very easy to gin up a moral panic among the doodahs.
 
Ah, now the _real_ reason for the blogging hiatus has finally dawned on me. ( I admit that I am somewhat slow at this social stuff.)  It  seems that the Armorer is, um "resting", and that he has run out of ice.
 
So, Mr. CRL, are you warning us about it or planting it on us? That was pretty crude.

John, please send that guy The Bill. Oh, and the live Bill, too, I hope in the right seat of some badass violent hellaflopper, like a Hind. Yes, a Hind, with lotsa ammo, and loudspeakers, to let him know just how much he is going to hurt. Oh God I hate spammers.
 
Skippy the Orc should, of course, be in the other seat of the hellaflopper. When hunting monsters, one can't be too careful, and sometimes non-human assistance is helpful. Orcs love their Death Metal, and I recommend playing "Hold the Pig Steady" over the sound system on the Hind while utterly splattering Mr.CRL into itsy bitsy Irish subatomic particles, AKA smithereens.
 
Looks like the resident Aspie was up late last night/early this morning.

Don't know if BillT would plant his tail in a Hind. Let's see if he posts his opinion of that piece of Soviet Hardware.
 
The Hind isn't as maneuverable as a Cobra, since it was designed to be the rotary-wing version of the Il-2M (it even got the same nickname from the ground troops -- "Горбун" -- which turns Mikhail Gorvachov's surname into a giggler). It *is* pretty much a flying tank, but I prefer speed and agility with a bunch of IR/ECM stuff over slow and armored with just IR countermeasures. The guys I know who've flown it for a living say it's like flying a German building -- overbuilt and stable.

Now, a Ka-50 fits the speed, agility, badassery, and IR/ECM bill quite nicely...

 
Amazing, since this is no big deal, let's tap all of their phones. Of course, this would include all of the guvamint''s phones and the ones they might use, present and past. What's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. Still funny? How about, when it's yours, that get tapped?  
 
 Not to mention the Hind made a good target for Stinger missiles.
 
I'll volunteer my services as door gunner, iff'n ye don't mind...

Hey, Qm, I really am mostly normal. Honest! I think.
 
We seem to be talking about at least three different things here, without much connection or coherence.
 
Oh, SGT B,  I think Bill failed to catch the magical qualities of Skippy the Orc's helicopter flying. He can make an Hind pirouette on a dime, and make The Enemy think there is more than one of him, because he seems to show up from all directions, shooting at them, even though there is only one of him.

If everybody here would just buy and read Larry Correia's Monster Hunter novels, all would be made clear, and explained, to them.
