Go ahead. I dare you to click this image,
and hope nothing wrong will ensue in the end.

00h UTC; THURSDAY, 28 FEBRUARY 2013: Gosh, February just went by all that fast ... and in just over a week, Summer Time (otherwise known as Daylight Savings such) goes into effect across North America (unless otherwise proscribed, as is the case with the American states of Arizona and Hawai'i and its Minor Outlying Islands ... and the Canadian province of Saskatchewan).

Meanwhile, the Minnwissippi is rather ...

What's stopping you from clicking on this image
and discovering what may lie beyond?

00h UTC; TUESDAY, 26 FEBRUARY 2013: Reader, if there was a reason why there was no post yesterday, it was because I decided to devote a Special Edition (as it were) on Sunday discussing certain remarks of The Oxycontin Boar (t/n Rush Limbaugh) claiming where he was "ashamed of his own country" (as if expecting his listening audience, largely poor, undereducated and easily-led for the most part to sympathise) .....

Special Features: Guess the puzzle of his own people than

18h UTC; SUNDAY, 24 FEBRUARY 2013: "Ladies and gentiemen: For the first time in my life, I am ashamed of my country."

Thus spake conservative prolefeeder and the worst possible sort of Hero, Role-Model and True Patriot known (except, perhaps, to the army of "poor whiteism" across the so-called "REAL AmeriKKKa"), Rush Limbaugh by name and stylee, on his Thursday afternoon hatecast.

And in expecting his minions of the poor, undereducated and easily-led in their collective Luscious Glory of most a...

00h UTC; SATURDAY, 23 FEBRUARY 2013: One thing is for certain out of all this snow that the Minnwissippi, whence Your Correspondent generates these schizophrenic ideas and observations in blog post form, got on the overnight of this past day: Not much in the way of drought relief lest more (and, as is traditionally the case, heavier, wetter) snow arrive within measurable distance, allowing the meltwater...

00h UTC; FRIDAY, 22 FEBRUARY 2013: As we all know, fish is an important part of the observance of the Lenten season, the 40-day (excepting Sundays) runup to Easter, among certain Christians--Roman Catholics in particular, who are still obligated to abstain from meat on Fridays through Lent, up to and including Good Friday.

00h UTC; THURSDAY, 21 FEBRUARY 2013: It's one thing for governors under "Tea Party"-inspired Delusions of Grandeur (Scott Walker in Wisconsin, e.g.) to push educational-policy reforms as emphasise industrial and vocational training in the interest of creating jobs in the new socioeconomic paradigm. But it's another thing to push policies at the high-school level as deliberately target such from backgrounds deemed "chronically and ha...

00h UTC; WEDNESDAY, 20 FEBRUARY 2013: On January 4, 1957, Collier's, which had changed its publication schedule from weekly to fortnightly just two years earlier to reduce losses on the part of its publishers, Crowell-Collier, published its final issue after years of heavy losses and declining circulation. Look, an established photo news fortnightly, acquires certain assets and the latter'...

00h UTC; TUESDAY, 19 FEBRUARY 2013: By now, those of you who rely on Certain Disreputable Prolefeed Conduits for news and information (or reasonable facsimilies thereof) are doubtless aware of the shock death by self-slaughter of country singer Mindy McCready (37), whose body was found on the porch of her rural Arkansas retreat yesterday. Whose own life, despite selling some 3 million albums to her name and credit, was certainly the stuff of supermarket ...

No embarrassment about click the image. It will not hurt it.

00h UTC; MONDAY, 18 FEBRUARY 2013: In expecting the Lower Classes especially to rescue themselves out of "government dependency," and to do so solely by their own resources (cf. the Afrikaans expression 'n Volk red homself, as was the watchword of the Afrikaner Economic Movement begetting apartheid), you have to wonder what exactly is the best approach for so accomplishing.

Without having to bring in "Tea Party," "9-12" and suchlike ...

00h UTC; SATURDAY, 16 FEBRUARY 2013: If there's one subpopulation as is particularly interested in the likelihood of reducing State Social Security emouluments for those now on benefit in the name of reducing the Federal budget deficit (or, as Christian Right politico/prolefeeder Rick Santorum wants it presented, "having the nation suffer as Jesus suffered"), it's probably the scam artists operati...

Why exactly won't you consider clicking on this image for once?

00h UTC; FRIDAY, 15 FEBRUARY 2013: Inspiration for the title, in case any of you readers may be asking, came from the usher's call on the radio anthology drama programme The First Nighter (as aired from 1931 until 1953) "Smoking downstairs and in the outer lobby only, please!" as signalled the commercial break for the show's long-time sponsor, Campana, on behalf of their Italian Balm hand lotion, Magic Touch cosmetics and DDD ecze...

00h UTC; THURSDAY, 14 FEBRUARY 2013: Reader, something as may be worth thinking when you see the new adverts for Best Western hotels and resorts showing the owners thereof as being just ordinary people like you and me, as if to reinforce the message that each property so branded--be it as Best Western, Best Western Plus or Best Western Premier--is independently owned and operated,...

00h UTC; WEDNESDAY, 13 FEBRUARY 2013: As he who's responsible for the morning coffee service at a certain motel here in Winona, Your Correspondent, on a lark (realising that the coffee was starting to run low; said motel prefers to operate on a "just-in-time" model in terms of supply), calculated the unit prices for some whole-bean coffee the motel prefers serving, and some imported ground coff...

So go ahead and click; nobody's watching.

00h UTC; TUESDAY, 12 MARCH 2013: If it seems that tonight's blog post seems rambling to the point of incohesive, readers, such can best be put down to the fact of his undergoing tooth-extraction surgery this morning to remove a couple of teeth as were giving him problems (and quite the pain, even) about a month back. And though the anesthetic as made the mouth numb is wearing off to a degree, Your...

So what's holding you back?

00h UTC; MONDAY, 11 FEBRUARY 2013: Reader, I suppose the leading image may call to mind Monty Python's "Dr. E. Henry Thripshaw's Disease" routine by the very tone and nuance implied ... but then again, judging by this report of an analysis on this site (the complete such, know, not just the blog page), perhaps Your Correspondent may be about to realise that he may need to reinvent his blogging approach and (mis)adventures if he's expected to keep this same blog viab...

00h UTC; WEDNESDAY, 6 FEBRUARY 2013: Exactly what part of "Other People's Money" aren't "Wise Use" conservative Zealots and True Believers getting when all is said and done? (You know--the sort who insist on single-occupancy automotive commutation as one with "personal liberty" and "freedom" whereas public transit is seen as "wasteful social engineering" and "creeping Communism.")

00h UTC; TUESDAY, 5 FEBRUARY 2013: Before starting out, reader, I should like to make an admission: My using "smorked" for "smoked," as in the titling and stylee of this post, is basically in the vein of "No Smorking" signage otherwise implying "No Smoking" in Engrish, as found especially in Japan (where, incidentally, you can still find vending machines for ciggies in abundance--so long as you're at least 20 years of age, and c...

From what I understand, National Weather Service climatologists hath it that the Upper Midwestern region of the United States may be in for higher-than-average precipitation levels heading into the early spring.

Meet Your Correspondent:

Iludium Phosdex Dyslexic. Unemployable because of past psychosexual abuse; hence, dependent upon State charity (and trying to supplement it through the Online Mall on this site). One of The People Our Parents Warned Us About who DO happen to have opinions. Yet nonetheless opinionate, as carried out in this rather esoterically-inclined blog, this New Explosion of Pedigreed Bull on Teh Innerwebz.
