Re: What are you reading lately?

Hillbilly Elegy. While my folks had moved to California when they were children, their parents are from Arkansas & Tennessee. It mirrors the weird social mores I grew up with. Happy I was able to escape poverty & landed in the shrinking middle class. A bit of library trivia: "Hillbilly Elegy" has b...

Not that I think theirs is a superior pizza, but this company's founder was certainly a superior human being, especially compared to the PJ dickhole:

I've never seen the point in a Lapdance myself, honestly.
It's a quick and easy (but not necessarily cheaper) way to get one's rocks off. It's not uncommon for the customer to (handsfree) rub one out inside his pants while the dancer is rubbing on him.

I think you are right - he had a rock company at one point (Eagle River Rock LLC).

Re: Black Farmers Deliberately Sold Bad Seeds

Is there a way it could be a scam for the rep to pass off cheap seeds obtained from an illicit source by putting them in Stine bags? But that seems tricky: presumably seed bags have batch, variety, treatment etc. information on them so using old bags (perhaps rescued from a planter) wouldn't do. Ac...
