sheep-cliff1 copyThanksgiving is less than a week away but here at The Planet, every Friday Night is a holiday from the week’s “adventures”.

As usual, we encourage members to give that other site the day off today though if you do go by there, please don’t hesitate to invite others there to join us today and tonight.

Right here at The Planet tonight, we will as always host a music thread to listen to and share lots of wonderful music videos with your friends and colleagues (as well as chat about anything and everything).

And also tonight, we’re excited to present the debut of “The Weekly Planet”, our live roundtable with humorous and thoughtful discussions of this week’s news, .  It begins tonight at 7 pm PST on the page of the same name (which you’ll find under “Live Events” at the top of the page).

For your convenience, here is the link to “The Weekly Planet” page:

http://planetpov.com/live-events/the-weekly-planet/

As with Debate Night Live, the live chat system does give access to all Authors so we really appreciate your allowing just tonight’s guests to enter comments. After the event, we will move to a related post for everyone to chat about the event and the topics that were discussed.

Hope to see you there tonight, should be fun!

Argh! Sounds as though I missed a great discussion on the death penalty. Got in later than I expected last night; and then, when I checked in here, I seemed to be having technical problems that made everything slllloowwwwww dowwwwnnnn. Finally–poof–my planet vanished entirely. I took it as a sign that it was time to call it a day. Sigh.

And–wouldn’t you know–it’s back to work today. Sigh x 2.

Have a wonderful day (evening), all Planeteers…

The slowness has finally gotten to me, and I’ve a book to get back to.

Well, I’m out of here for the night. I’m getting slower than the server! Good night people.

Evening all, I see I missed the debate, once again….can’t seem to stay awake, 12:15 pm here in a very dark CT….how’s everyone?

Hello, BDM.

Hey e’cat, how’s the skunk smell, has it dissipated much?

escribacat
Member

Hi BDM. Yes, it’s much better, though when I leave the house and come back it’s suddenly a lot more noticeable. I handled it better this time — last time it took weeks because I didn’t limit where the dogs could go and didn’t start treating them until the next morning (I didn’t have the right stuff). This time I knew what to do!

Friends suggested using a plain douche, the vinegar in it cuts the smell faster, then bathing them with regular dog shampoo.

Have it on hand, haven’t had to use it for over a year, but the young one, Win, chased one the length on the yard last week, didn’t spray him, thank god…he’s such a noodlehead, didn’t know what he was chasing, the big guy, Rudd, just laid on the porch, probably said to himself, “Been there, done that”!

escribacat

Lucky you. I wonder why my knucklehead greyhounds didn’t remember that they got nuked in the face only a few months ago!

I have to laugh at your use of the term “noodlehead.” My ex BF used that to describe all the young white “rastafarians” (with dreadlocks) who live in the mountains around here during the summer.

“Noodlehead” or “Noodles”, for short, is none too bright, he’s young, 15 months…The Big Guy, Rudd, got blasted in the face last year, won’t go out after dark unless one of us is with him. We have to stand on the porch and clap our hands before he’ll come down. Smarter than the younger one!

and yes that is a great discription of white rasta’s! Blondes I supose…

I don’t know if any of you know Brownforall, a nice young guy but prone to emotional outbursts, but he came back as GuardianForever, a chick, and I hit on her, uh, him. Then, ladynaga figured it out and exposed him. Was I embarassed. LMAO.

I tried to create another sock but was unable to get it through. I guess there is a way to do that, but I haven’t figured it out. If I ever get banned, HP will rue the day. I have access to three computers and I’ll create hell for them.

escribacat

I’ve created several extra sox. You just need a new email address. Monk says it doesn’t even have to be a real one. Was that the problem?

KarateKid
Member

Yeah, I tried setting up Mr_Miyagi, but it didn’t get approved even though I used another email addy. I haven’t tried lately, maybe I did get it through. I’ll double check. But I guess that sock would have been a dead giveaway so maybe I’ll try another one.

OK, here’s my techniques. Work MOST of the time.

I start out clearing out my internet cookies, ect on the browser. This is having started on a neutral page, like my search engine (which isn

Brownforall was hard for me to figure out for the longest time.

escribacat

Yeah, he seems a bit obsessive.

Khirad

That would be the right word. There’s another who is a bit of a spaz, too – I’m totally blanking on names tonight, oh yeah GOPsteals. The ones with the bad spelling and grammar always embarrass me a bit, elitist that I am. Still, if they make a good point or have a decent rejoinder here and there, I’ll fan them. I think they’re nice guys all the same, but can become a little bothersome.

escribacat

LOL. I’m an English major and this drives me crazy. I often correct the spelling of trolls just to be annoying. It’s a major effort for me to resist doing it to some of the leftie posters. There are some pretty bad ones! One guy I’m thinking of probably writes at about a third grade level — obviously sounding words out with *very* creative spelling. And these are pretty simple words too. Yikes.

Khirad
Member

OMG – is not that urge to correct them powerful?!!

I love mocking the righties with atrocious English with suggesting ESL classes – no offense to those in ESL!

escribacat
Member

LOL. That’s pretty good. I think I’ll use that one in future if you don’t mind!

Pepe Lepew

I figured her out right away … because she was flirting with both AC and LadyNaga and BrownForAll always did that.

Kalima

Mea Culpa to all concerned, I missed it because the Panasonic guy coming to fix our fridge, informed me that I had to remove everything from said fridge. *hangsherheadinshame*

Promise to read all of it when he leaves and I have put everything back. *runsandhidesinacornerwhereAdLibcan’tfindher*

I was here, but getting the color wheel of doom which made me miss the event, though I was here doin’ tunes the whole time. Too many videos on a page can be downright gooey.

Kalima

If you are talking about “the colour wheel of doom” you must be on a Mac right, it drives me potty.

I invited MonicaAngela to this site and she said she would stop by, Chernynkaya too. I hope they do come here; they are two of my favorites and have chafed at all the name calling which inhibits a deeper discussion.

It’s getting rarer and rarer that there is substantive discussions there; the trolls are increasing and making some really stupid statements. There are three types: the bloviators like drbillybob and Dave from Wisconsin, the outright provocateurs like Perfect Sense, and the crazy ones like Beejer.

I don’t consider Andrea Castillo, Ramirez or Flossy/GringoLingo to be trolls. I don’t have a problem with dissenters, and they don’t launch personal attacks. I sure don’t agree with them on anything, though.

escribacat

But sometimes they create sox that they use to post from their “more vile” selves, like AC was posting as RonPaulWasRight — extremely nasty stuff against pro-choice women. The kind of stuff spewed by protesters outside of clinics. I used to think AC was all right but not any more.

KarateKid

Are you sure that was AC?

Pepe Lepew
Member

Positive! Zero doubt!

escribacat

Pepe apparently has other evidence, but what confirmed it for me was that she fanned the PPOV facebook page with a picture of herself with John Stossel. The avatar for RPWR was John Stossel. Who the hell gives a shit about John Stossel?

Pepe Lepew
Member

Plus, she was also talking about how she was playing volleyball with John Stossel … and she lists on her FB page one of her political heroes is Ron Paul!

Is this person for real!?

KarateKid
Member

Wow. I went to her Facebook page once, but I usually don’t dig as deeply as you guys.

escribacat

I saw it because she fanned the PPOV facebook page.

Pepe Lepew

Well, she’s a “fan” of the PPOV Facebook page. You don’t have to dig hard!

AC’s only position on the Sotomayor nomination was making fun of the Justice’s looks.
