You’ve Unlocked Open Thread From The Supply Crate!

Contractually obligated to mention college football, Huskers host Northwestern today.  Also, I think I may have solved the Republican 2012 candidate problem for them.

He loves guns, he’s a super-rich CEO and he beats up parking lots full of hippies. He’s the perfect GOP candidate, frankly. Sure he’s Australian, but that’s never been a particular barrier to running the GOP, now has it?

Saxton Hale beats the crap out of your facts.

Open thread is go.

    So far Iowa is catching some breaks. Getting a win this week after losing to the Gophers last week would be big for them. I’m still hoping against hope that my Cougs will pull off something against the Cal Bears tonight, especially since my sister will be at the game. Man it’s been a long decade to be a WSU fan.

    You ain’t kidding dude. But we were fried after the Beavers spanked us.

    Cal stinks; as a measure of how badly they stink, they were worked by UCLA last week … and UCLA stinks.

    Go Big Red! 1 for 3 so far on my sports weekend with a commanding 3-0 win for Arsenal v West Brom. Now need a Huskers win and a win for Sporting KC in the MLS playoffs tomorrow.

    Zandar @ Top:

    [Saxton Hale] loves guns, he’s a super-rich CEO and he beats up parking lots full of hippies.

    So, now we know who drove that car into OccupyDC protesters last night.

    Gophers won both hockey games last night, opening some space between themselves and the rest of the WCHa (men’s) and between themeselves and everyone except Wisconsin (women’s).

    The only first half matchup between the top women’s teams in the WCHA that hasn’t happened yet is Minnesota/North Dakota. To date, Wisconsin is 5-1, Minnesota is 2-1 (one more game against Duluth tonight) Duluth is 1-3-1 and the Sux are 0-3-1. And yet the idiots at are saying that Duluth is the best bet to upset Wisconsin for the title, but also asking whether ANYONE [all caps theirs] can beat the Badgers. Conveniently forgotten is that one of these teams actually has beaten Wisconsin (in Madison, no less), and it ain’t Duluth.

    The Gophers are actually playing like a real football team – 2012 must be near.

    As Spencer Ackerman put it: “The CIA is now killing people without knowing who they are, on suspicion of association with terrorist groups”; moreover, the administration refuses to describe what it even means by being “associated” with a Terrorist group (indeed, it steadfastly refuses to tell citizens anything about the legal principles governing its covert drone wars).

    We MUST re-elect President Obama. It is the most important thing in the world. Only he has the drone mentality to continue murdering 12-year-olds while (because he is a Good Man) probably feeling just a little bit sorry about it but not really because we are at world war don’t you understand you dirty fucking retarded progressives.

    Hahaha, great find Zandar!

    Other than using “ordinance” where the narrative context would seem to cry out for “ordnance”,* a fine story line, suitably simple and simplistic for adoption by the Insane Clown GOPosse.

    *Unless ordinance=explodies is how they roll down in Oz.

    You should have listed some of his notable achievements:

    Fighting off a lion while simultaneously having a haircut.

    Fighting off a cougar while simultaneously listening to the reading of the last will and testament of Zepheniah Mann.

    Single-handedly wiping out the Indonesian Berserker Shark (and making them cry).

    Firebombing Woodstock from a helicopter.

    Discovering the existence of the Internet and starting the Mann Co. Store.

    Purchasing England.

    Having a website made up entirely of absolutely true Saxton Hale facts.

    He’s a man like no other!

    Heavy duty TF2 fan here. I even run a public TF2 dedicated server that we abuse regularly. I may be a bit older than the average TF2 player (51) but I love to use my ‘old man voice’ to let someone know that they were just dominated by Gramps.

    Heh heh heh… Got yer ass kicked by an old man. Now get off my lawn!

    Damned good engi and soldier but willing to play heavy (put that Tomislav to use!) or medic if the team needs it.

    So you admit that President Obama will not change. Interesting that you two Republicans have no morals.

    I do wish my ranting against the murders of 12-year-olds was more exciting for you personally. I’ll file your comment under “Morons, selfish and soulless.”
