GOP Voters

So, if you are a Republican, we have differences of opinion. Okay, that is fine, it is the variety that we work with on a daily basis. We each have things that we believe in that we probably will not see eye to eye on.

If you voted for Trump, I view it as you may not have liked the choices before you. You chose poorly, without thinking of what is best for the country.

If after the first year and beyond, you still support Trump, the chances are good that I have lost all political respect for you and possibly much more than that as I can no longer trust your judgement in many areas.

If you would vote for him again… well, the chances are also quite good that I will see you as being just like him. Birds of a feather and all.

Griz in Review

This should be interesting. One of my dearest and longest term friends is looking over the site to see what I have become. Oh the things that she will learn. The ladies here can attest to my still being a hug whore.

We go back to high school, before homelessness, before military and another stint living in the woods… marriage, parenthood, divorce, remarriage, heart attacks oh so much has happened.

Being an educator, I hope that sh doesn’t correct all of my writing and fail me. Oh, by the way, it is written with flavor, even when it means breaking grammar’s rules.

Trump and Negative Coverage

When the Orange Twat-Waffle and his fans proclaim that the majority of his media coverage is negative… Well no shit! This is an indicator of being an utter failure and a clueless fuck. If you want better coverage, then do some good. Surround yourself with people who know what the hell that they are doing. Accept their support and skills.

What we are seeing now, is the direct result of putting corrupt friends and sponsors in positions of power without related skills.

Just because you do not like the way that the news item looks, or make you look, it isn’t fake news. If you were not a pathological liar, we could see a fake news item here and there as journalists fail to corroborate their story and it gets by editors, but you… have no clue what a fact is.

I have never seen so many indictments and convictions in one term. The conditions for executive pardons needs to be adjusted, but that will have to be another post.

Doing some house cleaning on the site.

Since this site has been up for so many years, I feel it is time to do some cleaning. There is a bunch of space being taken up that should probably just be purged. Part of this is in expectation that the site may need to change servers in the near to medium future.

I will also be looking to do things like restructuring the chat page and exploring new these again, so don’t be shocked.

AfterDark Discussion Ideas

So this is going to be the repository of topics that we wish to discuss. Just drop a discussion idea in a comment and we can bring it up.

Once a topic has been posted for discussion, I can add a link to the lower portion of this post for our ease in locating them.

Welcome to the After Dark group

Since the After Dark group (while private) still shows the name that we use on FB I fear that many are not ready to open up and really discussing topics that could be worth while.

To help with this, I would like to open my website up for these discussions. What is the difference? Well You can get a free account with IntenseDebate using whatever username (alias) that you wish.

I can also test accounts built just for use here, but that would mean that you would have to trust me enough to create the username for you.

If you are game just follow this link:

https://www.intensedebate.com/signup

I am going to create another post where you can add comments with topics that you would like to discuss. If you have posts that you would like me to publish for you, you can email them to me and I can post them using whatever by line that you wish.

A note from a guest author (anonymous for the moment)

so… explain to me…

we all KNOW.. that trump was negotiating to build a tower in Moscow… while running for president…

all the while he said to you and me that he had nothing to do with Russia… Over and over and over… he LIED… He lied about his personal sex affairs with the Playboy model and the porn star. We know he paid them off to keep them quiet… because he would have lost if everyone KNEW… he was fucking porn stars and sucking russian dick…

HE LIED ABOUT IT ALL….

Dead Pool 2019 – First Call

This is not for the weak… If you cannot make light of death and mortality, please stop here and head to disney.com or someplace else.

That said, it is once again time to submit your dead pool rosters. It is still free. Maybe some day we will do a paid option for all of the marbles, but not yet.

Here is the way it works. I respect your privacy, so I you have two ways to submit your roster; you can post it in a comment on this post if you don’t care if anyone sees it, or you can email it to me. The email address to send to is deadpool@pissedoffpirate.com.

Your roster should look like this:

Dead Pool 2019 Roster

[What name do you want to be displayed as on the standings.]

1.

2.

[Snip – for brevity]

10.

Alt.

The rosters will be gathered up and published on a post to keep us all honest.

Why the alternate? well, it is possible that someone that you have on your roster may pass away between the time that you submit it and the first of the year.

I will be using the same rule set as last year.

If a person on your roster passes during the year 2019, you will get a score of 100 minus the person’s age at the time of their passing. There are bonus points that may apply and I will award them as they occur.

Basic points per death will be determined by their age deducted from 100. Additional points are listed above.

  • Your celebrities must die between January 1, 2019 12:00 a.m. PST and 11:59 p.m. PST on December 31, 2019.
  • Your celebrity must be a real person, not a character, like Ron Burgundy.
  • Your celebrity must be a real celebrity, not the mother of a celebrity, like Debbie Nelson.
  • Your celebrity must be a human.
  • An unborn child of a celebrity does not count as a celebrity, so miscarriages and stillbirths are worth nothing.
  • Celebrities that are terminally ill, on death row, or are political refugees / terrorists are qualified.
  • Spiritual death does not count.
  • Anyone saved by CPR or other life-saving means will only receive the “Michael Clarke Duncan” points and not the basic age points.
  • You have one month or until someone else’s celebrity dies (whichever comes first) to manipulate your celebrity death predictions. So whatever your standing list is as of February 1, 2019 12:00 a.m. or as of the first speculated death, will be your final list. Reminder: the moment someone wins the “First Cadaver”, the one month manipulation clause is no longer valid.
  • If you selected someone already dead, not qualified per the rules, or any other type of error, after the cut-off deadline, then you do not get to correct it. All lists by cut-off point are final.
  • You must list all of your celebrities as an actual list, in one post, to enter the game. Calling out individual people in separate lists will not be counted. A list must have no less than 8 names to be considered an entry in the game. Any list changes must be reposted as an entire list.

5 pts the “First Cadaver” if your celebrity is the first to die in 2019.

10 pts the “Selena” if your celebrity is murdered.

50 pts the “Vic Morrow” if your celebrity is decapitated.

15 pts the “Sid Vicious” if your celebrity murdered someone. Extra 5 pts if the celebrity  murders someone within 24 hours of his/her own death.

15 pts the “Whitney Houston” if your celebrity is African American and dies in February.

15 pts the “Owen Hart” if your celebrity is a sports figure that dies competing.

20 pts the “JFK” if your celebrity is a political figure and is assassinated.

20 pts the “Brandon Lee” if your celebrity is a musician or actor and dies while performing or working on set.

10 pts the “Paul Walker” if your celebrity dies during the filming of a movie and his/her contribution to the movie was not finished.

20 pts. the “David Carradine” if your celebrity dies from a sexy time gone sour (whether alone or with someone).

25 pts the “Kamehameha” if your celebrity dies on his/her birthday or wedding anniversary.

25 pts the “Michael Clarke Duncan” if your celebrity dies and is brought back to life.

5 pts the “Who Knew?” if your celebrity goes out in the most unique fashion. Most unique selection will be determined by group vote.

25 pts. the “Jon-Erik Hexum” if your celebrity dies from his/her own stupidity, such as playing with a gun or planking on a balcony.

15 pts the “Killing Spree” if 3 of your predictions die in a row with nobody else’s predictions in between.

25 pts the “Daily Double” if 2 of your celebrities die on the same day like Jackson and Fawcett.

15 pts the “Left Eye” if your celebrity dies in an auto accident. Extra 5 pts if the celebrity is driving.

5 pts the “Grim Reaper” for the poster with the greatest number of celebrities that die, regardless of any point value.

25 pts the “Sylvia Browne” if you predict the order in which all of your celebrities will die. (Even if all 10 don’t die, your celebrities that do die just have to die in the order you listed.)

15 pts the “Pink Ribbon” if your celebrity dies during the month of October, having been a victim of breast cancer at some point, but not necessarily dying of breast cancer.

10 pts the “John Denver” if your celebrity dies in plane crash. Extra 5 pts if the celebrity is flying the plane.

25 pts the “Keith Moon” if your celebrity dies in the same location as a former celebrity’s death. (Buildings count, cities don’t.)

5 pts the “Death by Misadventure” if your celebrity croaks while swimming, biking, boating, skiing, sky diving, mountain climbing, race car driving, or zip lining.

5 pts the “Last Gasp” for the last celebrity to die by 11:59 p.m. PST on December 31, 2019.

 

This rule set was respectfully pillaged from: https://www.yelp.com/topic/los-angeles-2016-celebrity-death-pool

 

If you have ideas for other bonus point situations, please let me know.
