the day afer California legalized pot in San Diego.


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.

Great picture but it looks like a logistical nightmare.

There is so much to like about that film. I love the way the pilot comes to a stop and still is only abaft the tower. Interesting to note that one of the other aircraft that lands is an RN F4. Not sure if the other aircraft is a 'Skywarrior' or a 'Destroyer'?

Skywarrior. The Destroyer was the USAF version developed from the Skywarrior.
