PETE’S PAGE; FRIDAY FUN

Posted by Pistol Pete

If you are new here you’re probably asking yourself what kind of a sick,diseased mind would read this kind of nonsense,much less post it. That would be me. It’s a release valve,after a fashion,from all the filth and depravity I wade through on a daily basis. The things I find make me feel like there are much weirder people than me walking around. You will not find a similar post anywhere. Guaranteed.

    The 25 Stupidest Liberal Quotes Of The Last Decade
    25) Seniors love getting junk mail. It’s sometimes their only way of communicating or feeling like they’re part of the real world. — Harry Reid

    15) Is there such a thing as a man-made stroke? In other words, did someone do this to (Democratic Senator Tim Johnson)? …I know what this [Republican] party is capable of. — Joy Behar on The View

    10) Every month that we do not have an economic recovery package 500 million Americans lose their jobs. — Nancy Pelosi

    3) I propose a limitation be put on how many sqares [sic] of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting. Now, I don’t want to rob any law-abiding American of his or her God-given rights, but I think we are an industrious enough people that we can make it work with only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where 2 to 3 could be required. — Sheryl Crow at the Huffington Post

    Las Vegas police trying to ID man in ‘Thunder from Down Under’ fight
    Las Vegas police are trying to identify a man they said pulled a handgun on a group of entertainers from “Thunder from Down Under” at the Excalibur Tuesday night.

    The man is in police custody and faces charges of attempted murder with a deadly weapon, attempted robbery with a deadly weapon, and burglary with a deadly weapon.

    Police say the man, described as being between the ages of 25 and 30, went behind the stage and entered the strippers’ “Thunder from Down Under” locker room about 9 p.m. According to police, he stole belongings from the group.

    Several performers from the show later confronted the suspect when they saw him with their property, police said. The suspect brandished a gun and a struggle ensued.

    The gun was fired during the struggle, but police said no one was hit. One person received a powder burn from the impact of the shot and was treated at the scene.

    The suspect was taken to University Medical Center and will be booked upon his release. He appeared to be under the influence of methamphetamine, police said.

    • They lost me at “gift.” Using “gift” as a verb (rather than “give”) is one of my linguistic pet peeves — it’s right up there with using “partner” as a verb. It’s like fingernails on a blackboard.

        Is this a regional thing? I’ve heard and used both my whole life. This is the first I’ve heard anyone bothered about them so I googled and found something very odd.

        Both of these words have been used as verbs since the 17th century and both have web pages devoted to why they should not be used as verbs.

        • Those two examples have enough history to be legitimate, but I agree with Bob that they can be overused (or unnecessarily used) by some people who subscribe to the verbapalooza trend common among business and technical people (and often politicians). The only irritating thing is that it’s done excessively in buzzword displays. I’m going to be giving a presentation to a bunch of engineers and managers tomorrow, and I guarantee they will make me ill by repeatedly:

          1. Using “dialogue” as a verb: “Let’s dialogue about that.”
          2. Using “disconnect” as a noun: “We have a huge disconnect here.”
          3. Lots of other creatively, but awkwardly, used expressions.

            Just a thought from my grad school days in Communication Arts. There are two kinds of specialized word use known collectively as “jargon.”

            One is specialized words used by a group of people to facilitate communication. This may be common words used in a very specific way. E.g., LEO (LEE oh) for astronomers would mean Low Earth Orbit, but for cops would mean Law Enforcement Officers. Within the group, everyone knows what is meant, so it makes understanding faster and easier.

            The other type of specialized words are those the group makes up or adopts (often from a foreign language) because there is nothing appropriate. This type always reminds me of an English professor I had my freshman year who apparently had a lot of IBM neighbors he despised.

            One day in class, he went on a big rant about how stoooooooooooopid they were for using words that aren’t real words. (This from a man who couldn’t explain to me why my writing got a B instead of an A … just that it wasn’t [kissy noise] “just THAT good.” Big help improving my writing, pal. NOT] His example?

            “Software” This was 1972. You can guess how low my opinion of that alleged English language specialist is/was/will ever be.

            I’m thinking your last example is made up of clumsy attempts at this type of jargon by not-very-bright individuals who want to be perceived by the group as in-the-know. These people annoy the hell out of those who actually are in-the-know and thus do all of the real work the group gets done.

            The other kind of jargon is intentionally exclusionary. Sometimes is a shibboleth, one or more words used in specialized ways by members of a group in order to identify insiders versus outsiders. E.g., teens are always switching up their slang so that adults don’t understand what they’re talking about.

            The other is what I sense is happening in the examples you gave, Grunt. “Let’s dialogue about that” and “We have a huge disconnect here” are (in my humble experience) the verbal equivalent of “Whatever.” They all mean, “I don’t actually give a crap about you and your stupid ideas. Now shut up or leave. Or both.” Southern ladies use “Bless your heart.”

            One thing I learned in my communication studies is that the words themselves don’t matter nearly as much as the intent. My prof once remarked that many marriages fail due to an alleged “lack of communication.” He said, “Oh they’re communicating all right! The marriages fail because of WHAT they’re communicating.”

        • I was born in 1954, and up until about five or ten years ago, I had never heard “partner” or “gift” used as verbs, nor had I ever seen either one used that way in print. I’ll take your word for it that they’ve been around much longer. I still hate them. Using “gift” in place of “give” is just highfalutin, in addition to being completely unnecessary. Why not just say “give”? “Gift” is a noun: something given. “Gifted” (as in having been blessed with certain talents or other desirable attributes) is an adjective. “Give” is the verb form. What is gained by muddying them up and trying to use them interchangeably?

          As for “partnering,” it’s just way too touchy-feely-new-agey for me. Maybe one reason I hate it so much is that it almost always comes in the context of someone trying to cajole you into parting with your money: “Will you partner with us in this worthy cause by pledging [fill in the blank] dollars…”

          As a persnickety English major, I get into discussions like this all the time — because someone needs to stand athwart the degradation of the language, shouting “Stop!” — and inevitably someone points out that whatever abomination I happen to be railing against at the moment appears in Shakespeare or Chaucer or Dickens. So what? When I write stories or plays, I also suit the language to the character: Characters who are foolish, or uneducated, or miseducated, or ridiculous, are going to speak a certain way, and I write their lines the way they would speak them. Characters who are intelligent, educated, and thoughtful are obviously going to speak differently. This is the case in any well-written work of fiction; nothing destroys a story’s verisimilitude like having a character speak in a way that that particular character would never speak.

    Food Fight At Early Bird Diner Lands Senior Citizen in Jail
    OMG!Before I read the article I remembered taking DW to Golden Corral at FOUR THIRTY IN THE FREAKIN’ AFTERNOON!Had to park in the second parking lot.If you want to see aggressive seniors,this is the place to be.I got an elbow in the ribs from an old broad in orthopedic shoes because she thought I was going to take the last shrimp.I politely informed her I’d never struck a woman in anger in my life,much less an old one.But if she did it again,I was going to slap the thunder out of her.It was on.
    Regret. Pain. Ageism. Getting old isn’t easy. But what’s more tragic is when seniors can’t frequent their local early bird eatery without fear for their personal safety.

    Previous studies found dark chocolate reduces blood pressure

    Now scientists have discovered this is due to how our guts ferment cocoa
    By breaking down chocolate compounds, microbes produce molecules that act like a natural anti-inflammatory
    This ‘drug’ enters the bloodstream and helps protect arteries from damage
    Dark chocolate contains a higher cocoa content than milk chocolate
