Submarines and Moonbats Around the 'Net
Commander, Naval Submarine Forces (just to be just SubLant) has but out their latest irregularly-published newletter with official Sub Force propaganda. There are some interesting stories, along with links to some cool pictures, like this one of USS Virginia (SSN-774) underway..
Over at Castle Argghhh!!! , the boys, along with some riled-up commenters, subject a visiting moonbat to some righteous mocking and belittlement. A good time is had by all!
Staying at PD...
Update 1453 11 Feb: On the submarine side, bothenook has some personal thoughts about being a submariner that are worth the trip over to his place.
Cassandra at Villainous Company has a very nice tribute to the United States Navy, which, although it scandalously doesn't mention submarines, is still very nice.
Hot on the trail of more moonbats, Ninme offers an amusing account of the White House Press Corps battiest crone, Helen Thomas. (Yes, I know I linked to Thomas' own columns. They're as side-splittingly funny as almost anything that anyone else could write about her.)
Update 1939 11 Feb: Found this over at Rob's Blog; with two teenage sons, I found it quite humorous. Since I am a "hip" and "with it" Dad, I can speak the same language as their peers. For instance, here's how I described a recent snowboarding event we were watching in front of their friends: "Dude, that stoked thrasher got some sick air! He's juiced to score the mad bling in the hiz-zouse." My kids weren't embarrassed at all... (Translation for the less "hip": My, that gentleman certainly remained airborne a long time on his snowboard. He's certain to win the gold medal in this competition.)
Continued: This Gizoogle link I have above is too weird. It turns out that in addition to translating Google pages, you can also put entire webpages in to be translated (as long as the url is fairly short and the page itself isn't too big, since otherwise it truncates the url or times out). I looked around to find a blog entry that worked, and I found this one of Frank J. discussing Genesis. Here's part of what Frank J. wrote:
Moses really could have used an editor. There is a whole chapter devoted to "this guy had these sons, and those sons had these sons." Sorry, but my eyes just glaze over at those parts. Only thing notable is some of the names. Gomer, Tubal, Cush, Put, Lud, Uz, and Hul. Why don't we see these names in more baby books?
"Dude, where'd you get a cool gangsta nickname like Tubal?"
"Actually, it’s my given Christian name; it's biblical, you know. Anyway, let's get back to busting caps in people's asses."
Then, of course, there is Nimrod, son, of Cush, son of Ham who done saw his dad neckid. Gen. 10:9 -
He was a mighty hunter before the LORD; therefore it is said, "Like Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD."
Funny, don't they say today, "Like Nimrod, the idiot." Maybe I'm missing something.
About this chapter I notice an item of concern: No woman has been mentioned by name since Eve, and she was only worth mentioning because she screwed up paradise. The next woman to be named is Sarai at the end of Chapter 11, noted for being barren. That's pretty phaleocentric... or something.
Just thought I'd put that out there.
Here's the same excerpt that came out of Gizoogle (link may take a while to load):
Moses really could have used an editor cuz this is how we do it. There is a whole killa devoted ta "this homey had these sons, n those sons had these sons." Sorry, but mah eyes just glaze over at those parts fo all my homies in the pen. Only thing notable is some of tha names fo' sheezy. Goma, Tubal, Ciznush, Put, Lud, Uz, n Hul cuz its a doggy dog world. Why don't we see these names in more bizzle books?
"Dude, where'd you git a coo' gangsta nickname like Tubal?"
"Actually, it’s mah given Christian name; it's biblical, you know if you gots a paper stack. Anyway, let's git back ta bust'n caps in people's asses."
Then, of course, there is Nimrod, sizzay of Cush, son of Ham who done saw his baby daddy neckid ya feelin' me?. Gen. 10:9 -
He was a mighty hunta before tha LORD; therefore it is said, "Like Nimrod tha mighty hunta before tha LORD."
Funny, dizzon't they say today, "Like Nimrod, tha idiot." Maybe I'm miss'n sum'm sum'm.
