      • Levian

        All ad blocker apps for Android requires it to be jail broken, or rooted or what ever. Any legit ways?

        • DarksideDrew

          I just use google chrome on my phone and it blocks the adds on its own

      This is such an appropriate quote for most of my FB friends.

      Heaven forbid there may be some dissension in the ranks. That's 'orrible. This is the first time I can say the MFIC-types at The Chive may have suffered a slight case of chicken shit.

      No biggie… it's your world; you have to live in it.

  • reaperMEDIC

    #8 False. Someone else can push me. Its a great way to get your ass kicked.

    • Livin' Legend

      A good segue into #16

      • reaperMEDIC

        Hahahaha! Exactly, and way to make me use a dictionary. Segue wasn't part of this dumb hose monkey's vocabulary.

  • FolleRousse

    I feel #10 applies to individuals as well

    • JESSE

      • some-dude

        Yup. Looks like the masses finally figured out they can vote themselves more money.

        Has there been any other presidential campaign that ends with people dancing in the streets like monkeys?

    #23 – I don't know. There seems to be a mass of cow-people every time I go to the book store.

      Hey- at least you still can. Up here every time I turn around another one is going out-of-business!
      Thanks for nothing, e-books!

    #27 awesome comedian, can't wait to see him perform live.

    • Yep

      I've seen him live twice and he's been great both times. One of the best!

    We may have kept that from happening for at least four more years. I believe if the outcome of yesterday had been different then this post would be absolutely accurate. Well accurate for most of the population.

      Conservative principles of smaller, less intrusive, less controlling government does work. Unfortunately, washington is so clogged up with assholes that everything turns out to be a disaster.

    Amazing what he accomplished. How many knew that Neil Armstrong retired from astronauting and bought a farm in Ohio. That was going well for a while, but in 1979 he got his wedding ring stuck in the gears of a grain tractor (Neil Armstrong was still working a farm!) and had the thing rip his entire finger off, but in true Neil Armstrong fashion he just calmly walked over, picked up the finger, put it on ice, and drove to the hospital to get it re-attached.
    That's Neil Fuckin' Armstrong to you & me.

      To me what was more impressive about the man was some of the things he did that few know about.

      For the first man to walk on a foreign body he refused most requests for interviews, quit autographing various items when he discovered they were being resold for large amounts of money and even had to go to court twice to keep others from cashing in on his fame and when he won both times…he donated the suit proceeds to charities.

      When he and the crew of Apollo 11 returned and after their 45 day tour of the United States to celebrate their achievement, when Armstrong had his pick of literally thousands of options for what he’d do next, he chose to go to Vietnam with Bob Hope and visit the troops there during some of the darkest days of the war.

      While on the Moon, and in the midst of a fierce United States/Soviet Union space race, Armstrong left a small package of memorial items to deceased Soviet cosmonauts Yuri Gagarin and Vladimir Komarov, and Apollo 1 astronauts Gus Grissom, Ed White and Roger B. Chaffee. For having just over 145 minutes on the surface of the Moon and the fact that nearly every action was scripted down to the second, this was a memorial he adamantly insisted, as mission commander, be included in the itinerary when he learned of it.

      After they re-entered the Eagle and closed and sealed the hatch, Armstrong and Aldrin discovered that, in their bulky spacesuits, they had broken the breaker ignition switch for the ascent engine. Rather than radio Houston with an emergency, Armstrong broke off and used part of a ballpoint pen and managed to push the circuit breaker in to activate the launch sequence.

      He accomplished something nobody can top but rather than even linger a moment in the limelight as quite possibly the world’s most famous man, not only did he move on he never really moved into the limelight in the first place. Unlike so many others, he didn’t try to parlay his fame and accomplishments into a political career, didn’t endorse products, didn’t seek out new publicity or even try and capitalize on his fame.

      And that's why I voted yesterday. I didn't care for either candidate but guys like Neil Armstrong and those who honor their memory owe it to them, and although we should all do way more, to do at least the bare minimum as American citizens.

    #20 That's a good one. It resonated with me. Reminds me of:
    "Before you diagnose yourself with depression or low self-esteem, first make sure that you are not, in fact, just surrounded by assholes." — William Gibson.

    • Shepard Wong

      Very true. I thought I was depressed, stressed, etc…was even on medication. One day I went into a rant and someone said, 'if all that is true I'd be depressed too.' Proving I wasn't actually nuts but the assholes surrounding me were!
