I am thinking about (VERY preliminary stages) a meet-up in OKC. I think the Tapwerks Ale House has a lot of potential. Possibly in a couple weeks to a month time. Input would be greatly appreciated.
Also, open thread.
Update: And we now have “Cheney for Wyoming” ads running on the site! That’s going to be all sorts of schadenfreude one way or the other.
So how do we go about either ratfucking or soaking Darthette?
@Yatsuno: Ignore her, she’ll go nova on her own.
@BillinGlendaleCA: What’s the fun in that? If she’s gonna troll Wyoming we should at least poke her a bit.
Is that the “Ever Been Arrested?” ad? :)
You don’t enjoy sitting back, watching, and munching popcorn once in a while? Buy futures now; popcorn sales are going to skyrocket in 2014.
And Amazon has somehow decided that I should be buying a copy of DSM-V. I guess we talk enough about crazy people on this blog that they decided we need to make up-to-date diagnoses.
should find out her position on fracking… i.e. energy creation versus ground water pollution

“And we now have “Cheney for Wyoming” ads running on the site!” That’s ad money well spent. I swear, if I had a little less morals or a little more balls, I’d start a rightwing PAC. I can confabulate (emphasis on the ‘con’) conservative Gruselgeschichte; I mean, it’s not like it’s hard to scare wingnuts into a froth. Any idiot could make money at it, and a lot of them do.
Does she have to choose one or the other? Can’t she like fracking both because it produces exploitable resources and because it destroys the environment?
@Roger Moore: true that, just a popcorn issue to me because its lose/lose as far as I’m concerned…

@Yatsuno: If you want to make her pour money down a hole, click on the ads.
Just a Cowardly Lion away from an Oz (Dick has no heart, Liz has no brain).
@The Dangerman: wasn’t that W? (as the Cowardly Scion, er Lion)
Any interest in a South Bay Area, California (San Jose, Mountain View, Palo Alto) meet-up? I missed the Berkeley meet-up because it was too far to get to (and back) given my home responsibilities, but a meet-up in San Jose or environs would work.
This story is too good not to share:
(like Mr. Cole I have an unhealthy tendancy to view CNN, in my case the on-line version.)

@pacem appellant: I would be interested, I live in Palo Alto.
You know your dog loves you when they barf around your shoes while you’re gone and not in them. Poor baby looked so guilty.
If I won lotto last night ( $20m) I will be there. Then we can organise them all across the states and then the world :)
With the construction on I-35 in Norman, traffic is going to be brutal on football Saturdays for those coming in from points south, so you should probably keep that in mind. (Although a football weekend Friday would probably be OK.)
I don’t do twitter, but can someone please mock these people?
“In the case of Ms. Santos, the appeals court pointed out that police who start asking questions based solely on the race or ethnicity of their interlocutor may also run afoul of the Fourth Amendment’s equal protection clause.”
The Fourth Amendment has no equal protection clause. #bringonthemeteor #cantfirehiattfastenough
Since it’s an open thread:
We’re pondering a fall trip to the Greek Islands. We’d like to go back to Crete (we like a little village called Myrtos), but would like to include another island or two this time. Anyone here have favorites? I’ve been leaning toward Santorini.
And no, we’re not posh globe-trotters, we live in the UK, so it’s a pretty easy trip from here to Greece, and this will likely be my only trip out of the UK this year (Mr. Cos gets to travel all over the place for work).
How delusional is Liz thinking her campaign will have national implications? Oops, just remembered who her dad is. So sorry, pardon my error.
I live in the north fringes of DFW. I might make the trip.
Might be a nice weekend getaway for me and the wife.
@cosima: Definitely Santorini! I have heard nothing but amazing things about how beautiful that place is!
Yow, been gone from the BJ community for longer than I realized. Haven’t checked in in MONTHS and what do I see but a plan for an OKC thingumabob. Count me in! I’m a newly minted (fresh & oh so shiny) OKer (Soonist? It’ll come to me…) these days and am rarin’ to go!
Not attending, but my vote would be Mcnellie’s. Actually, my vote would be Hawaiian Don’s, but I’m trying to be considerate of the BJers that aren’t fans of sketchy dive bars.
@The prophet Nostradumbass: Excellent! One hit is better than none. How do I notify the powers that be so we can raise the official status? For Palo Alto, I know of the Rose and Crown from my college days. I am certain there are other drinking establishments of repute as well.
