I mean - you can see that she has hands giant enough to completely crush it, worse than a 8 oz Coke can.
And below is a package she received, pre-wedding. A *big* package, if you know what I mean...(and you know that you do. )
I enjoy the thought of the smiles on the FedEx guy....

Not dangerous in that "hey, i'm gonna break into your car and steal all your best 80's music CD's" kind of way - no, more in a "Omigod these chips are so good I ate the whole bag in a day! And I wasn't even really trying!" kind of way.
Which means that they just opened a Trader Joe's around the corner, and Everbabe and I headed that way Sunday. And I didn't open the chips til yesterday AM, and *POOF* they are gone.
EB - here is a Trader Joe's FAQ, or someone's amusing reviews of a bunch of TJ material.

Murtha also complained about people calling the Democratic Party the "cut and run" party. For years now...going back to the 2004 presidential election, Democrat after Democrat has proposed cutting and running. Well ... they
don't exactly call it cutting and running, they've come up with a fancy word
that covers the true meaning. The Defeatocrats call it "redeployment."
First .. Iraq is a mess. No doubt about it. ... Just a question here .. nothing more ... but could it possibly be time to put more effort into protecting our culture and our country from the Islamic fascists, and less effort into trying to democratize Iraq?
God, he's such a cutter and runner. I mean, it's pretty clear that if you aren't for us 100 percent, you're against us. And only a Defeatocrat would want to redeploy. (But seriously - the next DAY he begins to question this?)
-Edited for purely cosmetic reasons.
As Keith so eloquently says:
we now face what our ancestors faced, at other times of exaggerated crisis and melodramatic fear-mongering:For more of this admittedly one sided view, watch this 8-minute item.
A government more dangerous to our liberty, than is the enemy it claims to protect us from.
Or read Wil Wheaton's view from a few weeks ago. As he said:
I know that some of my readers lean a little further right than I do, but I would be interested to hear your take on this. I mean, I can understand (if disagree with) the idea of a stronger Executive branch, but you guys know that a Democrat has to win that office sometime. Do you want HILLARY to have that kind of power?
As I write this, the United States Senate is engaged in a bit of political theater, while they pretend to debate whether or not they will make torture an American value. They are pretending to debate whether or not to give one person -- in this case the president -- the ability remove rights that we've all taken for granted under our Constitution for over two centuries from anyone he (or she, someday) identifies, without any accountability or oversight. They are pretending to debate whether our Democracy even matters, any more.
I admittedly haven't been listening to Neil Boortz lately, although he used to be my biggest source for personal liberties. In my opinion, he's really gotten short sighted in the last few years, focusing on the threat from Islamic Fascism above all others. But where IS he on this? Anyone know?
Anyway - it's pretty cool, watching him get older. (ps - You've probably seen it, but she hasn't, so heres the link) Also - he has really cool hair.
Second one (then it's time for bed:) This one reminds me of me in Organic Chemistry.
Especially at the end.

(PS - Thanks to EverBabe for this. Also - looked up my brother, and found he has 58. Be that as it may - at least 3 of those have actually come to our Christmas par-tays.)

I've found it a good reminder of exactly what our guys are going through out there. It's non-political, and a great read.

And if you have time, catch up with George Lucas's version of Lord of the Rings
(if you were paying attention, you see that there were two additional LOTR videos hiding in the title - good for you!)
