I have been using the Gas Buddy app since Sept, I enter prices of the two stations near my home. I enter a
couple of text messages and read the articles. All these things give you points you can use to enter a "Win
some gas" contest.
Yesterday I was randomly picked and today my $100 worth of gas cards arrived. $100 worth of gas, worth two fill
ups.

On the day the Jackass In Chief took office for the first time, on 20 January 2009, the local 7-11 in Chico CA was charging $1.79/gal for regular.

Today, that same station is charging $4.09/gal.

I simply cannot believe that idiot got elected the *first* time - never mind the second time...

I felt the same way about the second Bush.

We haven't had a decent president in a very, very long time.

George W. may have had his shortcomings at being President, however Barack Obama defines the essence of EVIL. In every way. From every viewpoint.

And on top of that, he is completely incompetent.

However, Obama has served one purpose.
He makes Jimmy Carter look good.

Heh... Google translated it as a 'Desoldering Pump, drip tube in metal'.

* Desoldering pump with high suction power
* collecting body is constructed of metal
* Thumb leadership in plastic

Could you imagine this product providing a copy of Joan Rivers face to provide leadership for all the thumbs in the room?

some more pros on this:

 - the white tip seems to be hard to see for insects sitting on white walls.

 - once you push the button the big spring inside makes the pump jump closer to the target

 - it sucks in insects at such a rapid pace, that they're torn apart - they don't survive (like they do if you use the dyson)

 

I would name the google translation mostly correct. You usually use these together with a soldering iron - it sucks in hot & liquid solder from places where you i.e. want to remove a resistor or such from a PCB.

I used to have more expensive ones of these for more than two decades now; Zarath probably even longer.

Neither of us wanted to use the real ones for such a job (imagine the smell of burning chitin when you're working with it...), so...

I made him order the cheapo one to test whether this would be a good way to get the smashed bodies of imposters removed from the wall without distributing the stolen blood into big red spots.

He then had the idea to test whether one could use it to suck them in alive - and it worked pretty well.

Joan Rivers? Her multiple face lifts have done her no good, really.

I think she's done much to stay relevant, though. She keeps getting herself into the news, mostly through controversial statements than anything else.
Although, honestly, most of the controversy around what she says feels manufactured to me. She's a freaking comedian... she's going to say things that are occasionally off-color.

<laughs>  Nice citi-drift!

Btw, have you seen her recent car commercial?

She may be a mean old bat, but you do have to give her credit for the self-depricating humor....

That's the *former* mayor of NYC.

The *current* mayor of NYC has asked me to leave the state.

Because it is necessary to have at least a little evil in your life to appreciate the good.

appreciate the good.



If the "little evil in your life" involves needlessly spending money, I will always opt to not do that.
