Arguing with idiots is like playing chess with a pigeon... No matter how good you are, the bird is going to crap on the board and strut around like it won anyway.

    If you want to start a word of the day thread it might be a good idea to start it early in the day.
    On the other hand you could start a word of tomorrow thread giving the people some time to think about it and be more creative. Last part was sarcastic, no one cares until you say the wrong words then someone cries and ferris cares.

    So it's early....what's the word of the day?
    "Impeachment"?

    No that’s a pretty tired word of 2 years in a row.
       Besides, you can’t impeach a corrupt ex Vice President, he’s already out.
    You may want to Schiff your opinion. The Vice is no longer relevant, it's in the garage next to the bench grinder.
    It is a worn out term.....but I'm hearing it everywhere this week.

    I hear it a lot too. It’s still an irrelevant and poorly designed accusation as it has been for years. And some people think the media aren’t highly paid political operatives.

    Yes. It's a small river in Emilia Romagna, Northern Italy.
    It's famous because it was the border between the Roman Republic and the "Gallia Cisalpina" that Julius Caesar crossed (saying the famous motto "alea iacta est") with his army, starting his riot against the Roman Republic. Even today the saying "crossing the Rubicon" it means doing something without any possibility to come back.
    A curiosity: the general Tito Labieno (who was a Caeser's subordinate in the Gallia's campaign) at the Caeser's decision to riot against the Republic defected and came back in Rome. Well, this guy was the one who conquered my town after decades of resistance against Rome by my ancestors. Indeed my town is named Laveno Mombello (from "Labieno" and "mons belli" that means war hill).

    Hammers a nice variety  but still do not have a dead blow.

    A 20' long table, a bench grinder, and a bunch of hammers...but no dead blow....
    You're in the hammer repair business...aren't you?

    Pretty. That’s what happens when I use a hammer that’s foreign to me.

    I once wrote a song called Beyond Rubicon, but it was about war, not Nixon, although it vaguely refered to Vietnam.  I was ahead of my time.

    Yeah, I was removing some old cut nails in a slab in between two new walls and was twisted like a pretzel. Hammer glanced off a stud on the way down and veered right into my finger. Started drinking early after that.
