HypnozombieX: Oh that awkward intersection of ideology and naked self interest.


Self-interest at everyone else's expense  is right-wing ideology.

crotchgrabber: nekom: Tenga: Just curious, is it a crime to shiat on a grave?

Public defecation is probably a crime in many jurisdictions.  Go ahead and add criminal trespass if you sneak in at night (most cemeteries are closed at night).  You're not really desecrating a corpse as nothing is getting past that vault for many years.  I don't know why I actually bothered to think about that question.

Solution: shiat in a ziploc bag, take it to the cemetery during proper hours, leave your "respects" to the deceased.


You're a problem-solver, you are.  I like that.

I'm guessing it falls under desecration of a grave or something along those lines.

But like smoking pot or making moonshine, it's only an issue if you get caught

How organ donation works: If you need an organ, you go on a list but it is a regional list and the matched organs come from that region.  There could be a match for you in San Francisco but because you live in Florida, you are on the Florida list.  You won't get the San Francisco organ.  What Steve Jobs and Cheney managed to do was use their status to get on all the lists in all of the regions.

When Cheney finally dies, I wonder if they'll post round the clock guards on his grave site or just say fark it and accept reality and just install a hardwood surface over it for all the people to dance on?

jake_lex: This is the worst thing that could possibly happen to organ donation in this country.  I mean, you've just been through this tragedy, someone you love is on life support and you are being asked if they should be taken off life support so their organs can be donated, and in that moment of pain, you are given the extra horror of realizing that there's a possibility your loved one's heart could end up keeping Dick Cheney alive a little while longer.


duh, that's why they included the no taksie backsies statute

Fun theory I've been working on.

The only reason Dick Cheney still walks the earth is cos Satan hasn't finished renovating the new "Gitmo" circle of Hell he'll be consigned to for all eternity.

If I had a choice between giving my heart to Dick Cheney and taking it with me to the grave, I'd make sure the funeral director burned my heart before my corpse was buried to prevent that torture supporter couldn't dig me up and steal it for his nefarious purposes.

Reiner tells Gupta, as he watched 9/11 television coverage that night, he was thinking, "Oh great, the vice president is going to die tonight from hyperkalemia."

Yes, that would have been the best thing that could have happened. It is unfortunate for the world that he lived through it.

Koalaesq: T-Servo: Thanks, Dick, for all that quality time I spent in Iraq. Those memories I will cherish forever, the same amount of time I hope you spend in Dante's deepest circle.

After those two fiascos, how are all the men and women who served in them now not raging democrats?


To be fair, the Democrats (with exceptions) did pretty much roll over on the Iraq thing, and I'm disappointed that people like Feith and Wolfowitz weren't brought up on charges (not to mention ass members of the CPA like Tom Foley). Afghanistan is sort of different story, but there was so much honor, blood and money wasted on destroying Iraq that it's beyond criminal.

Many that I know have made the transformation from right-wing to voting for anyone that will take the seat away from the GOP candidate.  Most aren't fond of the Dems, but they're typically the ones that can take the seat.

He also is living with an interesting combination of paranoia and delusions of grandeur.  He had some of the functionality of his electronic ticker controller thingy turned off because he thinks that terrorists will "hack into it" and "assassinate" him.

http://rt.com/usa/assassination-cheney-heart-monitor-function-399/

1) I usually don't wish mental illness upon anyone, but I'm happy that asshole lives in fear that someone wants to kill him, and I'm glad that fear is apparently so great that it's making him do things against his own health.

2) Dick, you don't matter anymore.  If someone did kill you it would just be murder, probably not assassination since you no longer pose any political power and you never will again.  It most likely wouldn't be politically motivated; it would be personal.  You've pissed off 100s if millions of people, and have blood of several 10s of thousands on your hands, and you've recreated a mental health crisis for veterans, the likes of which we haven't seen since the Vietnam War.  It wouldn't surprise me one bit if someone is actively thinking about ways to off you.  But it would be murder, not assassination, since you don't farking matter anymore.

3) Why the f/ck would any "terrorist" want you dead?  You've done more to destroy this country than all of Al Qaeda and the Taliban combined could ever dream.  Every time you open your mouth you spout shiat that fuels teabaggers to keep doing stupid shiat that further hurts our country.  Anybody that has anti-American interests wants you to live a long life, and keep on talking.

Actually not true at all.  All regional lists are merged into a national one.  The first things they look at for hearts and lungs IS distance, since those 2 organs can only be out of the body for 4-6 hours.  The second thing after blood typing is height, weight and compatibility.  Have to have the right size organ for the recipient.  So Cheney could only get a very small heart, because since he did not have one in the first place, there would be very little room for a new organ to be there.

SHUT UP CHENEY, YOU COCK!!!

Yeah and Cheney himself saw the episode and said he seriously had the concern that the terrists would aim for his heart and find nothing.
He (really!) had the wireless features in his pacemaker disabled.

Please!  Do I have to spell it out for everyone?  The *only* reason that humanoid-shaped pile of dog shiat 'Cheney' is still alive undead ambulatory and above ground is that Satan is scared *Shiatless* that when Cheney stages his invasion of Hell, Satan will be deposed by this new Lord of the Underworld.

MAN, that movie holds up.

Watched it a couple of years ago and, while it's obviously not the terror-fest it once was, but it's real well shot, well acted, and the effects are pretty damned impressive. Even good for a couple of spine-chills.
