    So on top of everything else, IRS agents were hosting lemon parties? Impeach Obama NOW.

    Sorry to miss yesterday's threads - the Bea Authur pic had me distracted.

  • WTF||

    Johnny was in his bunk.

    Last night someone posted a link about the "Fastest spaceship in all of science fiction." The answer was Heart of Gold from the"Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy." How can it be faster than Gay Deceiver? IIRC, HoG still took time to get from place to place.

  • some guy||

    Any ship that can travel in both time and space would be equally "fast" in that they can all go anywhere with any delta-t they choose.

    Also, the usual concept of "speed" doesn't even make sense when you start talking about FTL travel.

  • robc||

    This. Neither is fast, they dont have velocity per se.

    Or, they work like the ships in the Mote universe, they have a velocity and they retain it even thru the jumps. Which can be awesome/awful depending on how fast it is and how fast the humans/computers recover on the other end of the jump.

  • db||

    Well, you could say they have no velocity because their "movement" represents a discontinuity and so the derivative of position cannot be calculated.

    On the other hand, Gay Deceiver could simulate continuous flight by moving randomly to simulate jumps of less than the Planck length. At that point her velocity would be only likited by the speed of her processors and "continua device" manipulators.

    Srsly, reason hire this man.

    We demand satisfaction.

    I bet you're the kind of agent that would search a person in the ass and not even have the goddamn common courtesy to give him a reach-around.

  • some guy||

    Maybe you can get your Congresscritter to introduce a bill requiring reach-arounds?

  • db||

    Only preferred constituencies get reach-arounds. It says it right there in the secret Bill of Rights where it says freedom of speech is just for licensed journalists abd the right to keep and bear arms is limited to the armed forces.

    IRS Official in Charge During Tea Party Targeting Now Runs Health Care Office

    The Internal Revenue Service official in charge of the tax-exempt organizations at the time when the unit targeted tea party groups now runs the IRS office responsible for the health care legislation.

    Sarah Hall Ingram served as commissioner of the office responsible for tax-exempt organizations between 2009 and 2012. But Ingram has since left that part of the IRS and is now the director of the IRS’ Affordable Care Act office, the IRS confirmed to ABC News today.

    More: IRS tax exemption/Obamacare exec got $103,390 in bonuses

    Sarah Hall Ingram, the IRS executive in charge of the tax exempt division in 2010 when it began targeting conservative Tea Party, evangelical and pro-Israel groups for harrassment, got more than $100,000 in bonuses between 2009 and 2012.
  • Almanian!||

    "...doin' a heckuva job, Sarah."

  • ||

    I was unaware that government cogs got bonuses. WTF is this?

  • Lord Humungus||

    same here - WTF? I mean we get bonuses at my job, but they're a (very small) percentage of profit. No profit = no bonus.

  • Bardas Phocas||

    It looks like the Thug Life pays.

  • UnCivilServant||

    As a government Cog, I can assure you, we don't. We get paid the same regardless of level of service or the government's financial state.

    What in the world they shovelled into her bank account, I have no idea.

  • some guy||

    Different federal agencies have different specs for giving out bonuses. Usually it's tied to some measure of performance. Anybody know what the measure of performance is in the IRS? Probably something about the number of audits performed with given resources or something...

    Why is Mickey Kaus being probed in a cartoon that's not about immigration?

  • LTC(ret) John||

    +1 Kausfiles

  • Almanian!||

    1) "Medical Ranking Political Records"....wha'...huh?
    2) Why is the "Laugh In" harpie calling an "agent" a person - it appears - who should be a "doctor"?
    3) IS that little box behind the doctor/agent supposed to be a computer? If so, is that the "massive database" the IRS is supposed to be housing? How does THAT make any sense? There'd have to be a whole building full of servers or something.
    4) What does the line about "massive database" have to do at all with the cartoon?

    You know why this is all so unclear?

    Needs WAY moar labelz. Horridly unclear and confusig.

  • Almanian!||

    On the other hand, what difference, at this point, does it make?

  • Ted S.||

    2) Why is the "Laugh In" harpie calling an "agent" a person - it appears - who should be a "doctor"?

    Ahem. Goldie Hawn is not a harpie.

  • UnCivilServant||

    Answer to 1 - That's 'Medical Banking Political Records'

    Answer to 3 - The database doesn't have to be housed at each 'audit' station, they remotely connect.

  • UnCivilServant||

    CRAP! Close Bold failed! Curse you Squirrels!

  • Loki||

    3) IS that little box behind the doctor/agent supposed to be a computer? If so, is that the "massive database" the IRS is supposed to be housing? How does THAT make any sense? There'd have to be a whole building full of servers or something.

    The 3 Terabyte external hard drive on my desk at home says otherwise.

    Nice gams.

  • Almanian!||

    So you like the cankles. Sick...

  • Ted S.||

    There are some odd fetishes out there.

  • some guy||

    Great, now I noticed that her shins are bigger than her thighs. Thanks for that.

  • UnCivilServant||

    Those aren't just oddly shaped pants?

  • Ted S.||

    She's got bell-bottom legs!

  • ||

    she knows how to use them

  • LTC(ret) John||

    Somewhere ZZ Top just felt a great disturbance in the Force...

  • John Galt||

    And nasty looking purple skin blotches all over her torso.

  • sticks||

    But Friday funnies are not funny. ....

  • BakedPenguin||

    This one wasn't bad. It made sense, and was relatively pithy.

  • Tim||

    Here's your audit from 20/20:

    Your deductions are suspect.
    Your reported income is too low.
    Your cholesterol is 220.
    According to our charts, at 5'8 and 170 pounds you are morbidly obese.

  • John Galt||

    Ahhhh hahaha. He's going to have his cavities searched for wearing the forbidden t-shirt.

  • sulphurbottom||

    Chuckle-worthy, but Chip went a label too far.

  • LTC(ret) John||

    Unpossible - it always NEEDZ MOAR LABELZ!

    dude should probably stuff that weed back into his pocket
