>Real Men Essays

>I’ve added a little something to the sidebar, it’s right below my Blogroll.
It’s a list of ‘Real Men Essays’ that I read recently.
I think they are important enough to keep them easily available.

I’m probably preaching to the choir.

Check ’em out:

>Hypocrisy in Action ~ ABC Nightline

>If you don’t know the facts, you’ll fall for anything:

“…It is ironic that, in preparing a story that seeks to make the point that judges should be held to high standards of ethical integrity, ABC itself broke the law by trespassing on private property and invading the privacy of private individuals who did not give permission to be videotaped. Indeed, ABC contacted the hotel for permission to film the Society’s activities, and permission was denied by hotel management…”

Power Line: Tripping up on junk

UPDATE: The Washington Times has more:
…”But delivering lectures and running seminars are another story. Unless anyone is prepared to argue that Supreme Court justices shouldn’t be lecturing to legitimate legal associations for legitimate professional purposes, it cannot be argued that justices should pay their own way, since that effectively kills the practice.

We would think the greater danger — and the greater loss to the American legal profession — would be some misguided set of overly strict rules that deprives legitimate legal associations of contact with justices.
ABC News took a prefabricated line about “judicial junkets” and tried to shoehorn Justice Scalia’s professional activities into it. That’s a shame, especially with all the great judicial stories to be had right now. Federalist Society President Eugene Meyer has asked ABC News to investigate, but he probably won’t be holding his breath. Neither will we…”

>Intelligence Test

>Ted over at Geek Soap Box had this intelligence test on his blog.

I got 30 out of 33, without using Google or any outside help.

I’m predicting my readers will all do well on this test. Especially Michael and Sobek and those other smarty-pants-lawyer-type dudes and dudettes.

I couldn’t figure out numbers: 28, 30 or 31 so you might want to start there just to show me up.

Let me know in the comments, how many you got right.

UPDATE: Mrs. Geezer got #30 right.

Cool New Magazine

I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that the majority of visitors to my blog are not Liberals. Therefore, most of you probably don’t frequent The Huffington Post.
Greg Gutfeld is their “Token Conservative”, he is a good writer with a clever way of putting things.

You should check out his post, plus you get to see how the Typical Moonbats react in the comment section:

…”Marking Sunday’s anniversary of the 33-year-old Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision, Planned Parenthood has launched a magazine targeting ‘choicers’ to be given out at clinics across the country.
‘This new magazine will reflect the growing concerns and needs of women in the child-nonbearing age group,’ says Melody Barron, a spokesperson…”

Assume you’re a robber. Assume you’re an idiot. Those statements were redundant.

If you’re going to rob a convenience store, you probably should retain your weapon until you’re done.

9mm Handgun purchased from Big Ray up the block: $150.00

Failure to master proper weapon retention during your planned armed robbery: PRICELESS

>10 Commandments for Spotlight Operators

Most of you know that I’m an ex-Lightman from Vegas.

You might get a kick of something I wrote about 10 years ago.

It’s meant to be humorous but it’s all true… well most of it anyway.

10 Commandments for Spotlight Operators

The picture is the Light Booth at Bally’s Casino Resort. Can you believe all the light boards crammed in there? I don’t think I can even remember all the names but here goes:
ETC Obsession
Animator
Navigator
Ross-American
Berkey Channel Track
ETC Expression
This is all stacked on top of the Kleigl board (sliders to the left).
Plus either my Commodore-64 or my PC.
I think this is before I got the Whole-Hog II (made by Flying Pig).

Doug M. is one of the frequent commenters at SondraK’s blog.

Somehow I saw this photo of him. I showed it to Mrs. Geezer and she said “Who took that picture of you?”

Several people have thought the same thing.

I thought it would be fun to match Doug’s photo with a photo of me.

Guess which one is me.

SondraK put up a really cool Rollover, check it out.
