Absolutely Useless Facts About Yourself, No One Cares About

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

Perfect spirit of this thread.

I had a Culver's butterburger and fried curds for dinner. This is what it feels like to be Del.

It's my 11th anniversary tomorrow. This last year was a real doozy with a lot of stuff coming at us. More in love than ever :)

That’s pretty much how I see all politicians.

Just reading this makes my IBS flare up in the worst way. Not to say that doesnt sound amazing because it does, but the aftermath would be 18 hours of torture to make the Inquisition crowd envious.

In other news, the classical guitar mission from yesterday was a huge success. I acquired an Esteve 72S. It is a huge improvement over the Rodriguez Mod D I've been fighting with the last couple of years.

For those who care (or don't), I got it from Reverie guitars in Coatsville Indiana. Super nice guy. I spent about an hour and a half trying several different models before settling on this one.

The longer I live in Texas, the more I am convinced that King of The Hill is a documentary. In a good way.

I took my two younger sons to lunch today. It was nice to spend time with them. It was our first lunch together since the divorce last year.

I’m glad you have the wisdom and the restraint not to engage in politics here, Fred. I both applaud and share your choice.

I haven’t engaged in politics on CPS since the, “Who is the lesser of two evils?” days of 2016. And just like you I would never say such things here - except to state clearly what I would never say.

I’ll just repost your post, Fred. This is another, perhaps more convoluted form of what is called apophasis by rhetoricians.

Another example of a rhetorical device, strictly as rhetorical illustration, of course:

If Captain Bonespurs [notice the deliberate replacement of the name with a lighthearted label here] were to continue cozying up to a foreign leader who had paid a bounty for every brutally murdered American soldier after said Bonespurs knew this was happening, then that bone spur should be removed from office as expeditiously as possible.

This is known as antonomasia by rhetoricians, and quite ironically, it is the favored rhetorical device of Captain Bonespurs.

I mention this only as an exploration of rhetorical technique. Any relation to persons real or imagined is purely accidental, and in any event, I would never engage in politics here.

At least Del just goes full Del. This smacks of sophistry.
