I've encountered preachers who drone on and on, for example.

If not for the noon whistle at the Phillips 66 Copoly plant across the highway from Bunavista Baptist Church, Bro. Billy Bob Lacewell's sermons would have gone on and on, and on and on. Boy that guy could talk.

Having two churches places certain time constraints on the length of my sermons, at least for the first church. All bets are off for the second church's service.

When I was a teen I sang in a choir at the Presbyterian church my friends attended, despite being Catholic. I was shocked that they dimmed the lights during the sermon. It was like they wanted everyone to fall asleep.

Dimming the lights during the sermon? I have never heard of such a thing. I have the ushers turn on the klieg lights during the sermon.

This dentist from Minnesota wanted to shoot a lion with a crossbow.



So he went to Zimbabwe and hired what he claims he thought were professional guides, but who turned out to be poachers.

He botched the shot with the crossbow injuring the lion who then suffered for 40 hours before he was tracked and shot with a rifle.

The lion turned out to be the country's most well known lion - a tourist attraction named Cecil. Experts say that he was the leader of the pride and had six cubs which will now be killed by other male lions as they seek to take over the pride. :(

Two individuals in Zimbabwe have now been arrested but, at the moment, Walter the dentist is safely back in Minnesota.

The internet is full of info about Minnesota dentist Walter Palmer who killed Cecil the lion.

Walter Palmer: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know | Heavy.com

Quote:
“Weird visit. Some guy lured me into the dental chair by waving beef jerky at me,” one Yelp reviewer wrote. “Once I sat down, Dr. Palmer viciously attacked my one cavity, but was unable to hit it with the drill. Profusely bleeding from my mouth, I fled the building and wandered the surrounding woods for a day and a half. Thankfully, I didn’t bleed out. My family would’ve been killed and eaten by my neighbors. Two stars.”

Aren't there sanctions on Zimbabwe, btw? I'm actually kind of amazed that people go there at all.

Not comprehensive sanctions. According to my company's internal source, the only U.S. sanctions are on individuals "deemed by the Secretary of Treasury to be undermining democratic efforts" or some such. As far as UN sanctions, I can't find anything on country-wide sanctions, just some limited resolutions involving the Mugabe regime. I'll try to puzzle it out if I don't get paralyzed by laziness. I.e., I probably won't.

TL;DR: There don't appear to be economic sanctions in place that would've prevented this asshole from doing what he did.

That fuckface regrets exactly jack shit at the moment, but that's gonna change. Judging from the comments on his Yelp page, Cap'n Needledick will have to move to Zimbabwe permanently if he wants to keep practicing dentistry. Happy trails, ya psycho fuck, and here's wishing you a slow, excruciatingly painful death in the not-to-distant future.

Or more plausibly, a prison sentence. During which his cavity will get drilled.

By an East German dentist? Oh, you mean another cavity. Nevermind.

"The Last Leg" just commented on the Cecil the lion business.

Don't think it's been posted yet here but
Quote:
In 2008, he faced prison time and eventually was placed on probation after admitting to making a false statement to a federal agent in connection with his hunt of a black bear in Wisconsin. Palmer shot a black bear in 2006 about 40 miles outside the zone where he was licensed to hunt, and then lied about it to a U.S. Fish and Wildlife agent, claiming he shot it in the correct zone.
The Last Leg pointed out that there was no uproar then - typical America: celebrity death - all over the news; black death - nothing.

It's pretty close to the German/Dutch border dialects in the region. Especially those of Dutch Limburg and the other side of the border there.

Default Re: Two Minutes Hate

While my own dull but befuddled existence is a poor sampling of such things, from my own perspective, I have detected a godfuckingawful trend. What the fuck is with people I AM FUCKING PAYING ordering me around to do shit?

Example 1. We here at Newnited HealthCare can not contact you at the email where you said you wanted us to contact you. Go to MyNHC.com and fix that plus make some decision about some prescription or some kind of dumb boring shit.

HEY NEWNITED HEALTHCARE! I DON'T HAVE THE ENERGY IT TAKES TO NAVIGATE YOUR STUPID BORING WEBSITE with the separate P Words for everyone in the family! TRY FUCKING CALLING NEXT TIME! I FUCKING PAY FOR THIS!!!

Example 2. As you know, you are required to maintain insurance on your home. Our investigation indicates your coverage has expired. Please send a copy of your Homeowner's Policy to us here at PennyPincher Mortgage. We'll be waiting.

HEY PENNYPINCHER! I called the the fucking Homeowners Association and they said the policy is paid and gave me the number to call the Insurer. I called the Insurer and they rattled off like ten things to put on some fucking official request and they would send me a certificate to send to you, PennyPincher. I am paying all three of you fucks to do shit like this. PennyPincher, you need to talk to the Insurer. Here is the fucking number. You two work this out, unless you want to pay me to do your fucking jobs for you.


Example 3. Door tag - Call to make an appointment to have your door painted. Two weeks later, another door tag - If you don't make the appointment the door will be painted while it is closed!

Dear maintenance guy - Wow, I can't believe I am paying you. That sucks. You always seem really agressive whenever we interact. I hate people that try to dominate me in casual interactions, so I hate you. Go ahead, paint the fucking door with it closed, I don't rightly give a flying fuck. It's not my idea in the first god damned place.
