Pictures please.
Jim, they are orange lady bugs. I have a dumb phone so I can't take pics but I can send you a bag full if you want to see them close up.  :)
Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

Making a very good salary, but still not being able to afford real estate where you live.
Just as bad is being able to afford the mortgage payments but not the tribute to the Government added on top.

ASIAN BEETLES ..... every late fall these freaking bugs come out of the ground or maybe HELL to infest everything and everywhere. Any minute crack and they're in the house. You walk outside and they're your hair, your nose and anywhere else they please. And they stink when you smash them. Went for a ride today down around the cypress swamps and I'd ride through clouds of them. It'd sound like someone threw a handful of BBs in the air when they would hit the windshield and face shield. Really pissed cause I already washed the bike once this year. DEATH to BEETLES!!!  >:(

Edit:  They are ubiquitous.

Excellent use of the word of the day!  5 stars.

A virtual dissertation when a simple answer is all that is needed. Why do people do that? It's like I ask what time it is and I end up with a tutorial of how to build an atomic clock.

There are some people that absolutely need an easily accessible switch to turn off verbose mode.

The bobboing camera style is becoming very popular due to folks with short attentions spans and the fact that movement keeps your eyes on the screen, it also is supposed to lend a kind of grittiness and a feeling as if you are there watching the actors and being in the same room, looking back and forth as if your eyes were the camera, its a technique that started awhile ago and made famous by shows like NYPD Blue. I hate it, its as if the director is trying to tell me where to look, where he thinks my attention should be. Have we becoming that stupid......oh..... never mind.

Drives me nuts too, which probably explains why I don't watch ANY television any more.

I always thought the technique was supposed to give you the belief that you were watching real stuff instead of a bunch of tired, overpaid, starving actors trying to pretend they're significant.  :nuts:

The first time I really started noticing the camera shaking style was in the film "Man on Fire" with Denzel Washington and Dakota Fanning. Otherwise and excellent film IMO, but the constant shaking made me crazy and annoyed!

Being required to provide absurd amounts of constantly changing information the requesting person has no use for, cannot possibly put to use and has yet to realize I haven't updated in weeks.

... the continuous non-stop political tsunami that occurs here in New Hampshire due to the primary.  I'd be glad if it moved to another state.  Looking for volunteers, who wants it?

Yeah, who's gonna notice another turd in the cesspool?


Speaking of which...

Since our Ill-ustrious state hasn't passed this years budget YET (only 6 months overdue) lots of entities are running out of money.  >:(  My wife works at a state supported community college and they started laying folks off left and right this week, the state owes them $5mil. Fortunately she has seniority and is in (almost) no danger. She's quite upset though as you can imagine as her coworkers and friends get called into HR for the bad news.   :(
