Strategy Room

I will be on the show "Strategy Room" from 1-3pm (ET) today. This could be funny.


Through no fault of your own, that show was boring. Or at least the 20 minutes I could stand to have it on were.

A friend of mine in school used to steal cars. Well, that's what they would call it where I live now, but back there, everyone left their keys in the ignition just in case someone needed to move it, or so they didn't forget the keys somewhere and have to walk back to grab them. He'd take the vehicles for rides around town, making sure to be seen in someone else's car.... preferably by the owner, and then take them back where he found it. His brother is a pharmacist now and the last I heard he was working at a bank. How long will the economy continue tanking before he and his brother start a family business running drugs in "borrowed" cars?

Well great, we've ruined another genius with the greedy spotlight of celebrity. Don't let fame change you, Ratman! Don't give them what you think they want! But don't not in order not to. It's a paradox. Is it too late? Can you break free and be the commenter we wanted before you knew we wanted it? Damn it. Life is shit, just like Fiona Apple said that one time.

You seemed to look uncomfortable for the few minutes I watched. Or perhaps I was just uncomfortable for you, and projecting.

I don't think he looked uncomfortable. Did they ask my question?

I think my thoughts were "Rex on Fox? What the shit?" Next time, punch someone. If nothing else it'll get you invited back.

It is almost getting too easy, some days I wonder why I even have to point these things out. I guess you just need it to complete yourself. It would be wrong for me to keep it inside. I like drinking wine, but I hope I never turn into one of those wine guys. You know the type: The black turtleneck sweater and grey slacks, a bookish, aloof look. They make me want to puke. I'm not sure how wine got such a snooty reputation when beer was able to keep the working class image even though you can spend $20 on a six pack. Sure there's plenty of cheap beer and King Cobra malt liquor, but there's just as much fortified wine product and Mad Dog 20/20 out there. Not that I give dirty looks to a guy drinking MD 20/20 out of a paper bag, but seriously, who does he think he is? I'm mostly resistant to buy wine because you need special glasses to drink it, and it really doesn't seem quite right when you drink it out of juice glasses. Beer can be drunk out of a cowboy boot and it still tastes good. I guess that in the end, that's what I like most about it.

I wonder if Ratman know the year of the rat ends January 25, 2009, so he's making up for lost time.
