She thinks Hillary has MDS, btw.

|20160926 17:26||Mullah Richard||I'm coming in from the northwest, so O'Hare is actually closer unless I'm flying Southwest or some obscure Delta flight.|
There IS a good deal of construction around ORD, though. Took me miles out of my way to get to my normal off-site cark park. Midway is much simpler in that regard.
I'll check out the Central Ave. route next time.

Sally said, "I saw Jonny's peepee."
Concerned, Mom asked "What did you think of that?"
Sally replied, "It reminded me of a peanut."
Relieved, Mom said, "Why, because it was just a little nubbin?"
"No", Sally replied, "Salty."
|20160926 17:17||Skidmark||I'm going to tailgate the debate at home.|
|20160926 16:16||Shipman||So we tail-gating ?|

|20160926 09:40||3dc||From i-55 I usually take Central to W55th instead of Cicero - which I despise too.|
Not saying bad things don't happen on Central - just its easier to see stuff there. Then I am coming from the west burbs so I take 355 south to 55 then the slant up to Central. Distance is shorter for me to O'Hare but it's mainly back roads and roads around O'Hare seem to be continuously under major construction.
|20160926 00:49||badanov||A mother had 3 virgin daughters. They were all getting married within a short time period. Because Mom was a bit worried about how their sex life would get started,|
she made them all promise to send a postcard from the honeymoon with a few words on how marital sex felt.
The first girl sent a card from Hawaii two days after the wedding. The card said nothing but “Nescafe”. Mom was puzzled at first, but then went the kitchen and got out
the Nescafe jar. It said: “Good till the last drop.”
Mom blushed, but was pleased for her daughter.
The second girl sent the card from Vermont a week after the wedding, and the card read:”Benson & Hedges”. Mom now knew to go straight to her husband’s cigarettes, and
she read from the Benson & Hedges pack: “Extra long. King Size”.
She was again slightly embarrassed but still happy for her daughter.
The third girl left for her honeymoon in the Caribbean. Mom waited for a week, nothing. Another week went by and still nothing. Then after a whole month, a card
finally arrived. Written on it with shaky handwriting were the words “British Airways”.
Mom took out her latest Harper’s Bazaar magazine, flipped through the pages
fearing the worst, and finally found the ad for British Airways.
The ad said:
“Three times a day, seven days a week, both ways.”

Suppose there are other ways to get there, but that's the shortest route for me.

They aren't supposed to booze up. Drugs are not forbidden in the same way, I believe. This CNN report from 2010 gives an idea of the scope of the problem. I suspect, given the mass production of Captagon by ISIS for their own troops and as a key export item to the region, the problem is worse now.

Don't discount the facile Arab mind. No altering-substance required.
(yes I know the Iranians published it. But the 'source' was likely Arab and the intended audience wasn't the Israelis or the West.)
|20160923 21:15||trailing wife||Snowy Thing, The Times of Israel had the same report about Aleppo datelined 9/22 at 7:21 pm as "Russain state media claimed..." as reported by the Arabic language version of the Sputnik news agency; the Israeli government did not immediately respond to requests for comment.|
Apparently the Iranian Fars news agency was also involved.
