The Daily F Bomb, Monday 2/4/13

Mon Feb 04, 2013 at 06:58:56 AM EST



Good morning, Bomber and Meeses and everyone else. These Mondays really come around inexorably, don't they?

Questions of the day: Of all the liberal causes out there (and they are legion), which is nearest and dearest to your heart? What is your favorite spot in your home to sit and relax? What is your preferred snack food for big televised events (from inaugurations to award shows to sporting events or the new season of whatever show)? Gardens: Wild or formal? Pets: Purebred or mutt?

Twitter Tornado

Most of you implied you did not care who won the Super Bowl last night, but perhaps some watched for the commercials. Or maybe not. Still, it was quite a night, and I have a gazillion tweets that I would love to post, 99% having to do with either the game (some tying it in to politics) or the ads.

There was a Dodge ad with the tag line, "God made a farmer" that was narrated by Paul Harvey. Very rah-rah, isn't white rural America the best thing ever." Here are a couple inspired by that ad:

There was a power outage at the Super Dome mid game, right after the half time show. San Francisco was losing badly before the outage. They came back strongly after the outage, though not enough to win.

Maybe more later in the comments.

Good morning! (2.00 / 25)
This on is quite true.

Answers for Feb 4 (2.00 / 21)
OK, I didn't tweet ONCE about the Super Bowl, so that's why I am not quoted.

But I have answers!

Of all the liberal causes out there (and they are legion), which is nearest and dearest to your heart?

That is a TOUGH question. I think I will go with civil liberties. Nothing is more American than civil liberties. I've been a member of the ACLU for decades.

What is your favorite spot in your home to sit and relax?

My bed. Oh, you said "sit". Umm, I lie down and relax, I hope that's OK.

What is your preferred snack food for big televised events (from inaugurations to award shows to sporting events or the new season of whatever show)?

A plate of charcuterie will disappear if you set it before me.

Gardens: Wild or formal?

Wild, I think.

Pets: Purebred or mutt?

I am not a big pet person, but it seems that mutts are better for all concerned; I've read a bit about the problems of purebred dogs.  

"Most people worry about their own bellies and other people's souls when we all ought to worry about our own souls and others' bellies" Israel Salanter


Mutts and purebreds (2.00 / 6)
I've read a bit about the problems of purebred dogs.

Yeah, I wasn't sure whether FR was just asking which we preferred, or whether she was getting to the deeper question as to the bad health of some purebreds, and any resultant ethical questions.

I'm lucky.


[ Parent ]
All questions can be answered (2.00 / 2)
either superficially or deeply. Some people I know are attached to certain breeds, but most seem to have health problems, so I prefer mutts.

Articles do mention (2.00 / 9)
that if they'd dug down 12" further or over 2' more he'd have been pulverized. I find the whole thing quite astounding.

Archeologist: OK...based on conveyed wisdom, some reasonable suppositions and back of the napkin calculations, we think he should be right about **paces off 3.5 meters to the west, stops, plants spade** here.

Grad student: **Digs a pit** Oh, look. A skull. Wonder who that might be?

OK perhaps not quite that easy but really in the scope of how these things usually, go pretty darn close to it. 2 trenches. 3 weeks and hey presto: one king lost for 527 years.

C'mon. When does it work like that?

Create a Vacuum Day (2.00 / 20)
Somehow seems appropriate on a day when I cannot brain.

Even though my team was not playing and the outcome was unimportant to me, the intensity of the ending kept my brain on overdrive well past the time I laid down to sleep. Today I woke up late (not "slept-in" ... that is usually done purposefully) but LATE and now behind on everything. Thank goodness iriti does the Monday morning check ins.

As per usual, I did not understand most of the ads and the ones I did understand weren't funny to me.

GET (YOUR EDGY AD) OFF MY LAWN!!!

Words have meaning. Our words will reflect what is in our souls.


not a good night for (2.00 / 20)
misophonics...lots of ads with kissing and smacking noises. I had to plug my ears a few times. Blecch!

mmmmmmmm...asparagus wrapped in bacon!

[ Parent ]
especially that GoDaddy ad (2.00 / 18)
with the all too C L O S E U P of those two pairs of lips.

yeah, too many touch me, feel me, kiss me and not nearly enough giggles.  

time...it seems to move so slowly until that day, when it doesn't.


[ Parent ]
Misophonic! (2.00 / 11)
Being somewhat annoyed to "I have to leave the room if possible" by various sounds, I had no idea that had a name! I've only been here a coule weeks and already I have had to search for definitions for various words and that's  GOOD thing.  

[ Parent ]
And my proofreading skills (2.00 / 10)
suck!!!

[ Parent ]
Been struggling with misophonia (2.00 / 10)
all my life, it seems. I never knew it had a name until last year, when a friend began talking about it on Facebook. OMG: revelation.

If you are sensitive to certain sounds, please take a few minutes to fill out the Misophonia Sound Sensitivity Survey, it will help researchers gather important data:

http://www.rosekivi.com/survey...

One nice thing: when I started with a new dentist last year, I told them I had Misophonia and they knew what it was and how to deal with it. So at least somebody knew what I was talking about :)

Good morning, everyone. (2.00 / 20)
Of all the liberal causes out there (and they are legion), which is nearest and dearest to your heart? Fighting hunger--Yes, We Can and Feeding America

What is your favorite spot in your home to sit and relax? We made our front bedroom into a lounge. It has lots of books, a TV, and a couch.

What is your preferred snack food for big televised events (from inaugurations to award shows to sporting events or the new season of whatever show)? Chips and salsa

Gardens: Wild or formal? Wild

Pets: Purebred or mutt? Mutts. Most of my cats started their lives as ferals.


I am so glad that the archaeologists in Leicester positively (2.00 / 21)
identified the skeleton of Richard III. I went to grad school with the woman who chairs the archaeology department at Leicester. They have really benefited from all the buzz surrounding the find. When I was at Leicester last month, everyone was still waiting on the DNA testing.

[ Parent ]
thanks BJM for making my words come true (2.00 / 8)
Without remembering if you had mentioned Leicester in your posts about your trip, I promised Mr. BSRH that BJM would have had advance knowledge of the Richard III and there it is.  

[ Parent ]
Ask me a question, any question! (2.00 / 20)
Of all the liberal causes out there (and they are legion), which is nearest and dearest to your heart?

- Human rights.

What is your favorite spot in your home to sit and relax?

- Depending on the time of day and season, Donna and I have several Coffee Spots. (in the warm:) The morning on the porch, the afternoon on my office deck, the evening on a little spot I've carved by the water looking down the bay and at night sitting on the dock.

What is your preferred snack food for big televised events (from inaugurations to award shows to sporting events or the new season of whatever show)?

- I'm easy, but a dish of cold fruit chunks with a creamy dip makes me a happy Moose.

Gardens: Wild or formal?

- Wild(ish). My favorite was a stretch of waterfront at the lodge that had been six foot tall suckers. Turned it into grass winding through seventeen beds and rearranged logs and stumps so the little bay had enough flow not to be stagnant,  with interlocking water gardens and water lilies from both sides for the turtles and fish. (I really wish I was a better photographer)

Pets: Purebred or mutt?

- Mutt. Benny is our last purebred, slight tear duct problems and picking him up from the breeder made me not want to see a dog breeder again.

Hi there. At least it turned out to be a good game to watch (2.00 / 20)
Liberal cause: women's reproductive rights
Favorite spot to relax:  we have a really comfy couch in the living room that old cold sunny days the sun hits and it is so nice
Preferred snack:  potato chips.  Mmmmm salty crunchy
Gardens:  vegetable
Pets:  rescued whether mutt or purebred.  If you want a particular breed find a breed specific rescue group and get yourself one of those.  

Moning F-Bombers! (2.00 / 19)

Answers:

What is your favorite spot in your home to sit and relax?
In the "Papa Chair" in the Living Room.

oh mai hed (2.00 / 17)
first migraine in quite a while.  my own fault for eating too many chips (which is an answer) and not drinking enough water.  i really think the extra hydration has been the key to fewer headaches, after i took care of some other stuff.  

we are having a nice calm morning here after our calm relaxing weekend.  i think there is freezing fog out there somewhere.  but it is getting light out and we can tell for sure.  

voting rights. i thought about this after the election. also climate change (which shouldn't be just liberal) and hunger (long-term concern).  

my sofa? after the kids are in bed?  also i love reading in bed.  

chips.  or crackers.  salty/savory.  

wild, w/ some control.  

mutt.  for strength.   and maybe not just pets.    


I watched the L&O marathon (2.00 / 15)
and during commercial breaks, checked the Super Bowl for their commercials. I saw a bunch of them, and none of them impressed me. I think they are being over-hyped now. I did watch the last 5 minutes of the game and cheered for Baltimore. Yay, Easties!

Equal rights for all.

My bedroom.

Chips and any good dip. I'm easy, but I especially like the spinach dip in a bread bowl that my sister makes.

I would love to have those cottage gardens.

Good morning!

Love is the lasting legacy of our lives


The commercials last night (2.00 / 14)
seem to have fled my head, but the tweets remind me.

Bud has a new beer, I guess all those microbrews are cutting into their revenue (rightfully so). The ads featured models of both sexes in black and gold and mood lighting. They were pretty bad, as I assume the beer will be.

Go Daddy alienated everyone and hopefully lost more customers than they gained with hot model type kissing (in close-up) your stereotypically pudgy unattractive nerdy guy:

Apparently Doritos are addictive, but did not produce any good tweets that I saw. And Mercedes has a new car that makes you strong and powerful that you can afford without selling your soul to the Devil (though WIllem Dafoe makes a great Devil).

Calvin Klein did an underwear ad, this one aimed at women and/or gay men:

There was Volkswagen ad, already controversial before it was aired on the show, wherein riding in a cute VW bug made everyone happy and talk with a Jamaican accent.  My feed came in both for and against. Me, I thought it was dumb and the first tweet here echoes my thoughts:

There was a Subway ad featuring Jared;

And Taco Bell's ad had old people (maybe an homage to Cocoon?):

There were movie ads, too. The Star Trek one looks good, and they all had really cool destructive explosive blow things up real good FX.

I like a garden... (2.00 / 12)
...that has a formal area with geometrical beds, fountains and such, but with lots of informal/wild surrounding it and threatening to take over. Best of both worlds!

There are, in every age, new errors to be rectified, and new prejudices to be opposed. ~Samuel Johnson (1709-1784)

I like (2.00 / 10)
the crisp geometric pavings that look like they are being overrun by plantings, and I like fuzzy edged plants rather than crisp edged (probably no succulent gardens for me, unless I had room for more than one).

Fountains? Oh you mean water features! ;-) I hate that term. Ugh. My criteria for any fountain is it has to sound nice. Too many just make me want to rush to the bathroom, and often the sound is actually intrusive. I don't get that. Aren't there people designing these things to sound good, too? You'd think that would be a huge part of it.

[ Parent ]
I didn't have a fountain in my last garden, but.. (2.00 / 7)
...I did have a sundial, placed in the center of the garden as a focal point. It was in the middle of a tiny lawn, with a formal arbor behind the lawn and wild, overgrown flowering bushes to either side. A riot of blossoms and a green haven, until the landlord pulled it all out and spread orange gravel everywhere. Now it's a wasteland. :-(

Of all the liberal causes...

My emotions are most affixed to social issues. Equality, justice, and the safety net falls under that umbrella as well. As much as I care about it on a logical level, I just can't get as riled up about money issues and whether we track down and arrest every corrupt banker.

What is your favorite spot in your home to sit and relax?

I have a meditation mat in a room with lots of windows. That's my spot.

What is your preferred snack food for big televised events...

Chips and guacamole.

Gardens: Wild or formal?

They both have their merits.

Pets: Purebred or mutt?

I love them all.
