    There have been a lot of really great Bizarro comics but this one from 11/01 keeps cracking me up every time I think about it. We've all seen that image a million times in movies and TV shows but the caption kinda reminds me of the Bad Lip Reading videos as it is so ridiculous...

    I suspect that even when he states "blown condition" twice , plus "blown transformer", plus "no speaker", some blownbrain will buy it anyway and then complain "hey!!!!! it doesn't work!!!!"

    One year I ran the arcade at King's Dominion, a large theme park near Richmond, VA. I had over 100 various pinballs and video games. I had one little driving game that was broken waiting on some part. Had a steering wheel and gas pedal, you drove the car image around a track.

    I had a sheet of 8x11 paper taped over the coin slots, it said OUT OF ORDER on it. Even though that warning was taped over the coin slots, and the unplugged game was dark, nothing on the screen, the thing still made $25 a week consistently. They had to untape the sign, and lift it out of the way to insert their money.

    That is 100 people a week, ignored the warning and managed to "buy" anyway.

    Are you the manager?
    Yes.
    That game took my money - it doesn;t work.
    I know that, that is why I taped OUT OF ORDER over the coin slots.

    One Man's thoughts...

    I mowed the lawn today, and after doing so I sat down and had a cold beer. The day was really quite beautiful, and the drink facilitated some deep thinking.
    My wife walked by and asked me what I was doing, and I said, "Nothing."
    She then said that’s what you did yesterday—to which I replied—I WASN’T DONE , SO I'M IN THE MIDDLE OF FINISHING RIGHT NOW.
    The reason I said "nothing" instead of saying "just thinking" is because she then would have asked, "About what?" At that point I would have had to explain that men are deep thinkers about various topics, which would lead to other questions.

    Finally I pondered an age old question: Is giving birth more painful than getting kicked in the nuts? Women always maintain that giving birth is way more painful than a guy getting kicked in the nuts, but how could they know? Well, after another beer, and some more heavy deductive thinking, I have come up with an answer to that question. Getting kicked in the nuts is more painful than having a baby, and even though I obviously couldn't really know, here is the reason for my conclusion. A year or so after giving birth, a woman will often say, "It might be nice to have another child." On the other hand, you never hear a guy say, "You know, I think I would like another kick in the nuts."

    I rest my case. Time for another beer, and then maybe a nap.

    So what exactly is a "blown chassis"?!? If the circuit board didn't look trashed I think it might have been a decent deal even missing tubes, speaker an PT... they're going for around $850-900 here in the Bay Area. With Craigslist you can at least see what you are getting. And once you got there the seller might accept $200 or $225...

    Thanks for posting it!

    New law makes it legal for atheist doctors and nurses to refuse care…
    by SP Team [The Science Post 01/19/2018]


    JACKSON, MS – A new law in Mississippi has made it legal for doctors and nurses to refuse care to certain patients on religious grounds .

    The law allows medical staff to refuse treatment to members of the LGBQT community on the grounds that it violates their religious beliefs. It would serve to reason this would also pertain to atheist doctors and nurses who could refuse to treat patients who are religious.

    “No, no, no. This isn’t the point of the law at all,” said an angry senator Frank Danforth (R). “The law is supposed to protect doctors and nurses who follow the teachings of God and our Lord Jesus Christ from having to treat patients who practice an unholy lifestyle.”

    Many doctors and nurses in Mississippi are against the law, but have expressed that they will also follow it to the letter and refuse treatment to patients who they feel are bigoted against certain lifestyle choices.

    “Of course not all religious people are against LGBQT’s, just like not all atheists are against religion,” said Dr. Susan Jewer, atheist. “But if medical professionals are allowed to refuse care on religious grounds, I am more than happy to oblige.”
    To date, there have been no reports of atheist doctors or nurses taking advantage of the new law.
