OmegaSquad is a self-proclaimed Tyrant, also known as Lord Omega. His “People Who Should be Beaten” video series is simply a must-view for one and all. The entire series can be found at LiveVideo, and Episodes 40-and-up can be found at LoveVideoPlayhouse, of all places!
When not in his Tyrant hood an cape, OmegaSquad sports a simple golf shirt and resembles a young Uncle Fester. His diatribes are delivered without any special effects bells or whistles – or second takes, for that matter.
Enjoy this fine example, Episode 43, “Back to School:”

We got our Toy-Go-Round cat exercise wheel so our Bengal, Sheba, would have some way of burning off her incredible energy in ways other than literally bouncing off the walls and ceiling (I kid you not!). Happily, three of our other cats also use it. Here’s Polly, our polydactyl Manx, strutting her stuff.
Variations on a Theme: 'That's Amore' "That's Amore" was written in 1952 by Harry Warren (music) and Jack Brooks (lyrics). Little did they know that they had created an ideal format for endless variations and parodies...
My new job is only a block and a half from my house, so I don’t need my trusty Pathfinder anymore. This is a great car, and well-serviced. It has power, great pickup speed, excellent brakes, AC to die for on a hot summer day, and the 4WD is a dream in snow and ice and off-road.
It’s big inside, enough to comfortably seat 5 adults or haul all kinds of furniture home from the thrift store – believe me. The average 12-16 liters per hundred kilometers (highway-city) roughly translates to 15-20 miles per gallon (city-highway).
I’ll include all service records and receipts. Since last year, this car has new brakes, new spark plugs, new valve covers, new wiper blades, all new fluids and filters, and even a new windshield because of a crack from a kicked-up stone. In the previous 3 years the rear muffler and gasket were replaced, as were the headlights, tires, shock absorbers, front gas struts, and the upper and lower control arms and link bushings (an inherent problem with Pathfinders of this era). Additional maintenance and repairs have been made as needed. This is a very well cared-for car.
Here are some details:
Engine: 3.3 L
Exterior Color: Silver
Interior Color: Grey Cloth
Net Weight: 1,808 kg
AirCare through 31 July 2011
Anti-Theft Device: Passive Immobilizer
Rear Window Wiper
Side Mirror Defrost
Split Folding Rear Seats
Storage Netting and Cover
There are prettier cars, I’ll admit, but most are not maintained this well. Run the VIN listed above for a complete maintenance history. Non-mechanical problems include rust on the front bumper, plus some on the exhaust pipe and rear axle surface (which the mechanic just cleared from any long-term problems). This and the slightly worn upholstery on the driver’s seat are signs of a durable machine. There’s also a hit-and-run dent on the driver side, plus the usual dings here and there. Hey, at least we don’t smoke or transport shedding dogs.

The VMR Canada retail book value on this car is $5,875, and I’m asking only $4,400. Yes, I know you want to pay less. There are cheaper Nissan Pathfinders out there, but they are less maintained and/or have far higher mileage and/or probably haven’t addressed the inherent upper and lower control arms and link bushings issue. Buyer beware! Our price is the trade-in value for this particular car. You may pay less, but you won’t get a better value than this.

This Tea Party movement sure knows how to get press. Their latest desperate plea for attention is posting a billboard version of their frequent rally poster comparing President Obama to Hitler and Lenin. Personally, I like that the Tea Party is flaunting their hatred, prejudice, ignorance, and total lack of historical perspective.
Somewhere I read that 80% of refrigerators are used as bulletin boards / organizers / scrap books. Ours pays homage to cats, coffee, and family snapshots, and serves as a storage area for various receipts and schedules.
