BrendaK & BrendaK's Evil Twin -

That caused me to do a seriously injurious double-take.

And I think that's "actionable".

Faaaaabulous!

Uhm, I mean, Oh my.

Well, Thanksgiving is going to be an event this year.

 
At 6:31 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

I wonder if BrendaK's Evil Twin has some obvious physical difference from BrendaK.

Y'know, like an "evil twin beard", but, you know, something that's more the female equivalent...

Uh oh - gym class flashback; see ya'll shortly.

Thanksgiving! Ah, that happy time when the whole family can sit around the table and get stuffed!

That did seem to be the base of her soon-to-be-realized innertube fortune, didn't it?

Bwahahahahahaha.

Rabbit -

I don't know, but I'm going to dump my Amazon stock before this becomes public knowledge.

 
At 6:46 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Fatwa -

I dunno. That looked like a cross-dressing non-identical evil twin to me.

With evil blue hair.

That could describe a couple of my aunts.

Update on Steve Irwin:

It appears he pulled the Sting Ray's barb out by himself. While I am sure it was a reflex action made with disbelief, I can also guarantee you had he not done that, we would be talking about him being in inensive care rather than a morgue

Speaking of evil twins:

I don't think any of y'alls are qualified to speak of evil twins. [smirk]

Although, I don't know if I'M the evil twin, or my brother. Hee! [grin]

 
At 7:14 PM, Blogger Paddy O'Furnijur said...

As a TRIPLET I'm not sure if you're qualified to comment on evil TWINS either.

Just sayin'

Barkeep! Three fingers for my friend over there - and his evil twin!

Deb Frisch Affair on Google

 
At 7:28 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

When someone has a penetrating injury, you are to leave it in place as best you can, and pad around it so that it does not move. The body will tend to close around the object, assisting in sealing off the damage and limiting the bleeding. This is done until the patient can get into the surgical theatre and the object removed surgically, clamping off damage as it goes. Removing the object tends to worsent the damage and removes this seal.

Also, the barb of a Sting Ray is jagged and serrated. The main damage does not come from the insertion, but rather the extraction where it tends to grab extra flesh, ripping and tearing as it goes.

Even if the barb went directly into the cardiac muscel, it had a chance to survive had it been left in.

however, if it hit the aorta, he would have been dead from bleeding out within a minute or less, regardless of if the barb was left in or not.

John:

Too funny

 
At 7:35 PM, Blogger OttavaRima said...

that explanation makes so much sense, hose.

i'm just sad to my bones about steve. as many VBSers are.

i really admired him. it's sad to think that instinct contributed to his death.

 
At 7:35 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

This is a picture of the type of barb that killed Steve Irwin. As you can see, a great deal of damage occurs when removing it from flesh.

Sorry, medic 24/7

At 7:37 PM, Blogger Paddy O'Furnijur said...

Ottava,
In the case of a puncture wound, if the foreign object remains in the body, the body will close around the foreign object, reducing blood loss. In the case of a barbed object, such as a sting ray's barb, removing the object can cause more tissue damage than the initial penetration. If the barb had been left in place, paramedics may have been able to provide sufficient support to affect transfer to a facility where surgeons could close the hole in his heart. This assumes that the barb entered in a fairly straight pathway and did not cause excessive damage when it separated from the sting ray's tale.

 
At 7:39 PM, Blogger Paddy O'Furnijur said...

OK, skip my previous post and just read Hose's.

I think ol Dr. Frischenstein thinks she is being cute and that we all don't know she is back. I also think she may now have that handler she was wanting that is keeping her from raving away like the lunatic she is. It must be just eating her up inside. You know...pressure behind the damn. When it blows, look out...it will blow big time. She ain't gonna come around with a pleasant hello.

Hello?

Is this thing on?

Is anybody here?

 
At 8:39 PM, Blogger Denny Crane said...

Hose,

I agree with what you said regarding removal of the penetration. However, your prediction depends on whether he bled out, or whether he was shocked by the poison. Do we know the precise cause of death?

In a former life, I was a rescue diver. I never dealt with stingray jabs (indeed, the only ones I've heard about in real life involved waders inadvertently stepping on buryed barbs).

As for the rest of the past several days: ZZZZzzzzz...... When there's no stimulus, why post?

 
At 8:48 PM, Blogger Denny Crane said...

Also,

Wasn't the barb still attached to the stingray's tail? I'm sure removal was instinctual, but probably also more advisable than remaining attached to a pissed off fish that was 1-2 meters across, depending on sources.

 
At 9:11 PM, Blogger Cirrus said...

Hi everyone,

Interesting discussion of the stingray injury. I have removed the stinger from a dead ray I was using for a fish-print project and had to cut it off with wire nips. It didn't come off like a bee stinger would. I suspect the barb broke off in Irwin's chest.

It sounds like he received an instant dose of the toxin, causing cardiac arrest, although I was under the impression that they don't all have toxin.

I had a friend who stepped on a sting ray in the Gulf of Mexico and ended up fighting an infection caused by the bacteria present on the barb. It resembled a TB type bacteria, they said. That took over a year to clear up! Another friend stepped on one in Baja and got spiked in the ankle. It was painful but did not lead to toxin or infection.

O'muse (that would be the muse with the O - or multiple O's if we use his full nym - I don't care who ya are; that's funny right there - right Deb?),

Teh Casa Cra zee ® is lookin' mighty empty right about now. One single post. It's quiet - too quiet. Increase the frequency of perimeter patrols. Send out the recon units. Top off your magazines and canteens. It could get ugly. What am I saying? It's been ugly for weeks!

The older posts appear to be back on the main page. It's still quiet over there.

I'm hoping it will stay quiet.

At 10:15 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

Well, it seems some little troll...my money is on the psycho bitch herself, taking posts from here and changing order, context and adding and deleting words in a sophomoric attempt to make it look as if Brenda and I are having some kind of ln-line thing.

Too funny. I guess she is just jealous that no one would come near her with a ten foot pole with dog shit on the end let alone attempt to have a relationship with her. Go look under the dog of hers that committed suicide rather than live one more minute with that psychopath who attacked it nightly with peanut butter

I guess she wants to add a lawsuit for slander to her repretoir which will be forthcoming should she leave that up on her site. This is the only warning she will get.

I don't like to be wrong, but I can accept it and move on.

"has anyone heard from hawk today? he's just down the road from me and, quite frankly, i'm a bit worried!"

Otta,

Hawk and family are all just fine. Thanks for asking. I still have been stopping in to read teh silliness™. Haven't had much time to post. The unit is amping up the pre-deployment training and we're just getting progressively busier. You guys didn’t think we wasted “all” your tax dollars posting on the web all day. This weekend, along with the honey-do list from hell, I was planning “event inserts” for simulations that I’m in charge of.

This week we're doing a COMEX (Commo Exercise) in conjunction with AVCATT-A simulations. AVCATT-A is a six aircraft sim where Hawk can torture as many as 12 pilots at a time. (maniacal laughter) The new commo systems were turning out to be first day nightmares and I was thinking we needed some brainy mugs like sinner, sulla, pet or joe to help get the systems up but the kids in commo worked them by the end of the day. The whole drill is to have missions flying (AVCATT-A), events occur, aircraft call TOCs, TOCs call battalion, battalions call brigade, commanders have situational awareness, Shoot, Move, Communicate!

Ducky, never saw if you got your Binford 2000 7.5 HP Epson printer yet.

Hose, I am not a mole Sir! I am a GERBIL!

 
At 3:22 AM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

I dunno Hawk, what with all that "Love for your country" and "Protecting us from the evils of Islam" and all.

I hear you and all of your buddies are just dupes. After all, if you can't trust a libelous lying cowardly piece of filth with a Pee Aich Deee...just what is this world coming to?

You think I should trust a MAN serving our country selflessly over someone who should be committed to a psych ward and all those that su[[ort her made to walk the streets of Baghdad with American Flags proclaiming their support for those poor, oppressed Sunnis and Ba'athists?

Sounds like a mole to me man.

 
At 3:24 AM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

I'll just have to ask my girlfriend Brenda when she gets here. After all, if it wasn't for hat useless sack of shit stuffed into a failed academic bag, i would have never known she and I were an item.

Thank God for her.

 
At 3:26 AM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

Hey Pixie...I have shown you the same pictures, plus those of my kids. Does that mean you and I are together as well? Will you and Brenda have to duke it out in the parking lot? Or do I get to live the man fream of two women?

WTF? I mean, I know why she's po'd at you - you man who is also a father. I don't know what I finally did to irritate her so much, but yay! God knows I've been working at it. If only we weren't all so anonymous.

Well, Deb is Anonymous. The rest of us are just the voices that haunt her fevered sleep. Ewwww, Deb's fevered sleep. Yuck. Sorry.

Look at it this way -- in trying to be insulting and get a rise out of us (hahahaha, remember that lack of respect thing, Special Debee?) she classed us with AoSHQ by rewriting our comments like she does his commentary. That's a pretty high compliment.

**Note to Special Debee - if you really, really want to hurt my feelings you'll pick on my front lawn, what with the reseeding and all. And the exploding tree; WTF is up with THAT?! I'm very sensitive about gardening. Don't you mess with my gardening skills!

Wait just a minute -- You've been two-photoing me with pixie?!

First you entice us with spiffy pics of yourself in uniform and with your lovely dog, then you dash our hopes mercilessly.

My personal favorite where where she pulled out of whole-cloth that I have a small kitty. I am so not a cat person.

 
At 4:02 AM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

I'm a "Playa"? Man...I don't think I have ever been called that. Although I wouldn't mind being a Giggalo. After all, it is always a good thing to get paid for doing something you enjoy.

 
At 4:03 AM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Not that there's anything wrong with cats!

 
At 4:03 AM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

Ummm...maybe small kitty meant something else...which again wouldn't be a bad thing.


Especially considering what her's...never mind.

Oh, wait, this must be one of those double 'ententre' things she goes on about.

She's probably pissed that she took her best friend...the only one that gets near her anymore...with her on her "trip" and the batteries dies in it.

 
At 4:10 AM, Blogger Blizzardlane said...

So the posterthing is changing the content of the stuff, I know that she cut a comment from PW to make it say something quite different, but she's actually changing the word and attributing it to other people? DOes she not think the plaintiff or the state in these cases is going to check this stuff out?

 
At 4:12 AM, Blogger BrendaK said...

She can always blame it all on 'anonymous'.

hahahahahahahahaha.

 
At 4:17 AM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

She is just that stupid. She is unaware of libel laws and still doesn't seem to understand the way things word e.g. internet logs. She thinks that she is making people look bad. Sorry, but I won't be ashamed of Bren ever. However, when she outright lies in order to do damage like that, she is opening herself up to Brenda and I splitting the sale of her shack on the open market and all the rest of her property...if there is any left once Jeff and the other people suing her are done.

It is just amazing that anyone this stupid not only ecists on the planet, but that she actually taught at the college level. I said it before and I'll say it again, if breathing wasn't an involuntary reflex of the body and lower brain stem, she would just plain forget to do it.

 
At 4:18 AM, Blogger BrendaK said...

blizzard -

Yep, she's cut-n-paste and 'adjusted' other people's comments from AoSHQ, PW and here -- she still just doesn't get all this electronic 'paper' trail stuff.

But, that's why I call her Special Deb - on the shortbus for life.

 
At 4:20 AM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

She must not think that sockpuppets can be traced. And even if it wasn't her, the fact that she published it on her site makes her liable

 
At 4:21 AM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

I have the definition up on my site...it explains it all.

Nothing we have said here is libelous. It is opinion. She has not been misquoted. All this site does is accurately repost the insane things she says. THAT is the difference.

 
At 4:24 AM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

OK...it is almost 0430 and I haven't been to bed yet. i am going to try and catch a few zzzzzz's before the Frischmas Eve festivities go into full swing. Someone make sure the mistletoe is hung. I'll see you guys later

 
At 4:53 AM, Blogger Hawksp said...

Checking in once more before work.

Question: What do you call a carbon-based creature that take's crap from other carbon-based creatures and makes something else out of it?

Answer: A dung Beetle. Get it? Deb is a Dung Beetle. (slaps knee, geez, I kill myself)

You actually should be happy she didn't cut and paste all your spoofing about being gay.

Are you SURE she's carbon-based? 'Cause, if you can't prove that in a court of law you just might be liable.

That's actionable. All your base might belong to Deb.

Off to earn the daily kibbles-n-bits!

 
At 5:28 AM, Blogger Sinner said...

I doubt Dr. Deb can be held responsible for stuff in her comments. God, I hope not or I have some serious issues with you guys...


Unless... she can be compelled to turn over the comment logs and the IP matches for those comments matches hers. LIke maybe because of her criminal trial or Jeff's lawsuit.
