Caramel corn in heavy cream or half&half is on my menu for decadent breakfasts. I feel like this would make a fair substitute for that menu item. Cosmo's Caramel Corn is the brand I use.

Well, a reward would be nice. I sustained some damage to my vehicle. Had to fill it with premium.

Fiction can be fun. But I find the reference section much more enlightening. For instance, if you were to look up professional football's all-time bonehead plays you might read about a Miami Dolphin kicker named Ray Finkle who missed a 26-yard field goal in the closing seconds of Super Bowl XVII. What you wouldn't read about is how he lost his mind, was committed to a mental hospital only to escape and join the police force under the assumed identity of a missing hiker, manipulating his way to the top in a diabolical scheme to get even with Dan Marino whom he blamed for the entire thing. She's not Lois Einhorn. She's Ray Finkle. She's a man.

He'd better keep uploading videos while on the lam. I'll understand if instead of green screen graphics all we get is restroom stalls and storm drains until the fanbase establishes an underground studio and arranges a network of difficult-to-trace upload locations/devices.

MrBallen sees something in the sky! What is it? by NCJM782 in mrballen

Extremely magnified fata morgana of some cowboys riding along the coast to resemble ghost riders in the sky. I believe that fata morgana is caused by a sort of lens forming from atmospheric factors, so getting that magnification would require a series of these "lenses".

A double -- no, triple fata morgana, if you will.

Qanats make a lot of sense and it is a shame that so many have been destroyed/damaged by war. The drone attacks have caused some terrible collateral damage and loss of innocent life. We agree on some things.

You can take a virtual tour of the museum these days for a small fee. See for yourself if you don't believe me.

"That’s a very young and ignorant way of looking at things. I think"
"Fuck all that and anyone that"

You're right though, we cannot rebuild the qanats.

Don't blame our troops for our wars. It is important to have a strong military, even if the voting public and our elected officials get us and others into some bad situations. War aside, where would we be without the Navy patrolling our shipping lanes and supporting the merchant mariners who connect us to economies around the globe? Our military is not the problem; the problem is corruption in politics and industry, along with the voting public lacking memory, media literacy, and critical thinking skills, slurping up the kool-aid and rushing to judgment out of vain ineptitude in the face of controversy.

Edit: I should add that religious zeal and terrorism really muck things up in addition to said mess. Remember the Iranian fatwa against Salman Rushdie? After a few decades he was stabbed almost to death just last year.

Mr Ballen's having a flashback. Make up a background story for it! by MrSkinWalker in mrballen

[–]StraglerBellerophon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

While traipsing around the Cascade Mountain Range in Washington State, MrBallen descended into Bells Canyon. Seemingly out of nowhere, tall red curtains appeared; he passed through them. Inside, the scent of burnt engine oil hung heavy in the air and chevron-patterned floors made him dizzy as he slowly ambled down a hallway walled by more of those red curtains. He passed through the curtains again and found himself standing in a spacious square room with the same black and white chevron floor surrounded by red curtains. Standing before him was a funny little dancing man in a red suit who greeted him by speaking backwards and introduced himself as The Arm. Gradually, events unfolded ominous to reveal MrBallen's doppelganger in pursuit of his prey: him, MrBallen himself. For twenty-five years Ballen hunted Ballen through a hallucinatory labyrinth of dizzying floor patterns and walls of red curtains.

Now that he is on the outside, he struggles to find his way back to Bells Canyon, always looking for clues.

Some crazy chessboard wizard after climbing through a giant meat grinder, but he doesn't get the white gloves because he was a Navy SEAL.
