How They Stack Up (Open Thread)

This would have been a much better picture if my two dogs hadn’t opened their eyes at the last second:


They’re forced to configure themselves to accommodate space restrictions when humans have the temerity to use the sofa.

    We’re supposed to get a lot of slush. Yuck. I know that you don’t have to shovel the gushy stuff, but it is quite miserable if you have to be out in it.

    @artem1s: I guess I fail to see the point of a manned flyby. Sure, it would prove that it could be done. And? No human should be landing on Mars until we are reasonably sure there is no biosphere to contaminate, and that will probably take a couple of decades to confirm.

    If Tito wants to blow some money on a Mars project, he should offer to put one of these into Mars orbit (pointing down, not up).

    Had the misfortune of having the “Today” show blaring on two nearby teevee machines at the gym this morning, both just out of reach to turn off. I was, thus, subjected to Puttyhead Lauer, in glasses-on chin-rubbing mode, fellating interviewing Jeb Bush about his new book and his deep thoughts on sequestermania. That granite-headed sonofabitch is running in 2016. He was on local teevee back in December for an annual literacy event he’s been infecting for some years now, and he looked a good 20 pounds lighter this morning. That was my “tell” for whether or not he’d be running. Also too the book, and the digestive noises he was making about the President getting “the largest tax increase in American history” back in January. At least we’re spared a “Hamlet” act om him anguishing over dodging rightward.

    Wonderful shot of laser eyes!

    Our dog Wendy was quite put out last night when the entire family sat on the sofa and love seat, taking over “herspace” and leaving only an expensive sherpa-lined dog cozy for her on the floor. THE FLOOR! Can you imagine?!

    I’m sick to death of the Sequester talk. Our local paper chose to go with the “Boehner is a heroic figure” angle, claiming that he’s trying to work things out with stubborn President Obama, but then, we’re right next to Boehner’s home district. gah.

    Surely you must understand that FSM created the sofa for the most favored creatures (dog or cat depending on your preference) and the floor for humans. Our bassett takes his half out of the middle and has no problem with the rest of us sitting on the floor.

    So does the one on the right have to pay the one on the left for that “position”, or is it the other way around?
