Also, Reports of Cannibal Anarchy in Steerage Strongly Denied


I’m sorry, but living for three days without power and eating canned food is not hardship. I call that camping.

Maybe they DIDN’T EAT SPAM! Who cares? What would’ve pissed me off is that the toilets started acting up.

Speaking as a Former Child, I would likely have much preferred Spam over whatever shit they were serving on board.

Good God, you book for a cruise and end up in San Diego!!!!!

Speaking of travel, check out TSA’s new activity book for children: My First Cavity Search

Okay, I’m cheating because I just posted this on FB too, but did you know there were hundreds of magicians on that ship who ended up “entertaining” the stranded passengers? My god, can you imagine if it had been clowns??

Rut roh. David Thorne did something really crappy. Like, for real.

spam spam spam spam spam

once in the 80s we had a christmas tree decorated with cans of spam and green rubber hospital gloves. those were the days.

you guy have not discussed the new collectable cigarette packs have you?

a pdf with all the pics

@nojo: Yeah, I saw that, too. But zgeek links to screen shots of Thorne’s customers’ names and address that have since been removed. That was the douchey thing. I think zgeek should take down that info, too.

Deleting comments is his MO. I’ve been on one trolling expedition, and David opened the can, and then he deleted his initial comment once the worms were out. When I saw him duck out, I ducked out, too.

@flippin eck: Have they done a head count? Because I can totally imagine tossing an annoying magician overboard.

@Capt Howdy: Pff. That’s nothing. In Amsterdam (brief stopover in the airport), it was just the Camel logo, with the lower 1/3 of the sign being black text on a white background: SMOKING KILLS. Awesome.

Someone please explain: what are electronic cigarettes?

@Benedick: They’re battery-powered heating elements that vaporize an oil-based liquid, very similar to how theatrical foggers work. Just much, much smaller. The liquid can contain nicotine or not, as you prefer. The theory is that they’re much safer (containing no tar, particulates, or anything much else) than cigarettes, while still giving you something to do with your hands/mouth, and delivering nicotine if necessary.

They’re usually shaped about like a cigarette, and are rechargeable via some easy method, commonly USB or with a small power supply. I’ve seen them with red and blue lights on the end that glow when you take a drag. From a distance, some are quite hard to tell apart from actual cigarettes.

Edit: Don’t quote me on the liquids being oil-based — I’m not sure of that, but the rest should be good.

@IanJ: In Thailand, at least half of every pack includes graphic pictures of cancerous teeth and/or gums, and large Sanskrit-based words that I assume do not say “Smoke Me!”.

@IanJ: Speaking of vaporizers, have any of the lovers of the ganja around here (*cough* baked *cough* howdy *cough*) tried using a vaporizer for drug delivery purposes? If so, is there a particular style or brand of vaporizer you recommend? Someone I know wants a vaporizer under the Hanukkah bush/Christmas tree this year, and who am I to deny him?

@IanJ: Same in Britain – I have a photo somewhere. We bought 4 cartons Marlboro lights in duty free. GF smokes 5 cigs a day, but we have friends to supply. Weird – no Stoly handles – had to settle for the liter bottle.

@Tommmcatt: Sex God or AVATAR OF SEX?!?!?! You be the judge…: Heh.

TJ/ Thorne Update: Thorne is now RickRolling reddit when reddit isn’t crashing his site. People are fighting over editing his Wiki. reddit is reaching out to /b/ and to eBaum’s World for reinforcements. /b/ and eBaum’s probably couldn’t care less, much like you guys, so I’ll end the play-by-play here.

Hi Stinquers!! I’m back from 2 weeks in Israel, now washing clothes etc so I can leave for Beijing on Saturday. Let me say, speaking of travel, that Luftwaffe Lufthansa runs a pretty damned good airline. Plus, the bathrooms in the Zurich and Munich airports are cleaner than Disneyland.

@Tommmcatt: Sex God or AVATAR OF SEX?!?!?! You be the judge…: I took a couple of pics that you might like. I’ll try to get them up in the sandbox before I leave town again.

@Dodgerblue: Hey darling! I’m sure it’s your move in our scrabble game.

Zurich is bar none my favorite airport in Europe. Not the clusterfuck of Rome, Paris, or Heathrow, and as much as the anal Germans in Frankfurt try to make their airport effective, there are too many goats running down the concourse to make it truly as Germanicly efficient as Zurich yet kind of mellow.

@SanFranLefty: We flew SwissAir from Tel Aviv to Zurich and then Zurich to Munich. Very well-run airline and the flight attendants don’t hate you.

@Dodgerblue: And I’m sure the fact that they are all cunningly multilingual and attentive Amazonian blondes had nothing to do with your affection for the SwissAir staff. Dare I ask what you flew from Munich to LAX?

@SanFranLefty: Well, Lefty, I did happen to notice that the Swiss flight attendants tended to be young, tall, attractive women. I did notice this, yes. Also on Lufthansa, which we flew Munich to LA — business class (on miles). Sweet.

@Dodgerblue: And I’m sure as a good public servant, you were aware enough to check out whether the male flight attendants would have been ringing some bells for the ghey and str8 female Stinquers? My fantasies of Lufthansa/SwissAir male flight attendants probably exceed reality.

@SanFranLefty: They do, unless you like guys you could beat up.

@Dodgerblue: Darling, that’s meaningless not to mention selling those guys short, so to speak, since I’m on the higher end of the Amazonian spectrum. Statistically speaking, I could beat up most guys based solely on my height and weight, and not even taking in to account that I got to the brown belt level in tae kwon do. I’m thinking I need to take up tae kwon do again, perhaps I’d drink less if I could pound the shit out of punching bags and wooden boards.

Sigh. Even a small Thorne causes festering.

Reddit is in need of Androcles.

Seriously, I’ve been on the sidelines following this brouhaha for a couple of days, and here are my thoughts:

Initial outrage about personal info being posted that led to me canceling my “I jump for cash…” shirt.

Then I slept on it, and thought:

1. Did he actually post real names and addresses? Did anybody bother to Google map them to see if they were real street addresses and not someplace in the middle of the Siene, in a Great Lake, in the St. Lawrence Seaway or something? (One of the purported buyers was from France, and the other was from Candialand.)

2. David trolls and rickrolls hard. Possibility #1 is starting to look more likely to me. These outraged buyers could be a couple of his constructs.

3. I’m going to go ahead with my jumping frog order.

4. Well played, David. My outrage is no more and I’m back to licking your boots. I’ll pass on the book.

Oh, and my Tabitha shirt kicks ass. Got it pretty quickly. Glad Cafe Press no longer prints invisible ink on disintegrating fabric.

Bravo. You’ve nailed it.
