If Lada built a drone...
My doctor wrote me a prescription for daily sex.

My wife insists that it says dyslexia but what does she know.

you just know those P-8 make Toonces wet.
Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

The Turks crossed the Syrian border and attacked the Kurdish force the US armed and trained.

Erdogan said that "Whenever the business is done, we know when to pull back.  We neither intend to stay there nor ask anyone for permission" (to go in or leave Syria). 

Turkish troops are fighting around the town of Afrin and has now started attacking Azaz.

Tillerson is: "calling for restraint on both sides" "absolute minimum of casualties" and to "be precise and try to limit operations."  Seems like the US has decided this is a fait accompli and is trying to talk the Turks into lower levels of incursions.

I heard on the news that the Turks at least notified us that they were going to go after the Kurds before the began their Op. So maybe it's something of a for-show-only Op. Hoping.

The Turks were probably more worried about fallout from accidentally killing YPK-embedded US soldiers than they were about tipping off the Kurds that they were coming.

Turkey’s foreign minister said the United States needed to follow up its promise with concrete action, including the immediate withdrawal of its troops from the vicinity of Manbij.

“The United States needs to break its link with (the) terrorist organization and make them drop their weapons completely. They need to collect the weapons they gave, they need to withdraw from Manbij immediately,” Mevlut Cavusoglu told reporters on Saturday.
