I hold a particular theory ( I hold a lot, this is just the current one I’m voicing ) that mankind took a huge evolutionary step backwards when he started eating mushrooms. Actually, he took a HUGE leap back with agriculture in general ( we all would have been better off if instead of giving in to population and resource pressure and starting to farm we had been able to kill off the emerging proto-militaries of the day that held the strategic advantage because of the food surplus ) but I’m thinking that mushrooms were consumed far before we started farming. Eating mushrooms that had certain toxins are one thing. You start hallucinating and start communing with the Fire God and he turns you on to cooking your food and staying warm so you can migrate north. You implement said change and suddenly you are everyone’s hero and you get the first choice of the new food source and cave bitches start flirting with you even though with that bone through your nose and your other shaman attire you look a bit odd. Life is good when you have Magic Mushrooms. But eating a regular mushroom for a food source? What the hell were they thinking? It’s friggin mold, dumbass! What’s for desert? Toe jam, fumunda cheese or dandruff? How can a species that prides itself on a superior mental capacity look itself in the mirror every morning when they eat this kind of crap? Tree bark would probably taste better and be more nutritious. What, you say you like fungus? Blame your mother. Taste is passed through to the fetus during pregnancy. You crave what your mother ate, in essence. So, one day a half million years ago, some retard, probably the missing link between Neanderthal and today’s modern version we’ve all come to know and love, kicked a glob of crap out of a cave that had a growth on it and thought she should put it in her mouth ( you don’t know where that’s been! ) and she probably picked one that had mild hallucinatory properties so she was fooled into thinking that putrid swill tasted good, and passed on this evolutional dead end of a trait on to her offspring. If we think we are so smart for having abolished slavery and enacted women’s suffrage, taken flight to the stars and harnessed the atom, why are we still eating feces spores?

While I was on vacation last week, I stopped by the retail outlet of Harbor Freight. They have a few of them. I think north of me at
for one. But for years now I’ve wanted to visit the Twin Falls, Idaho store. They opened it after I had moved here to Elko and every vacation I want to visit. Of course, vacation time is visiting time with the parental units. I only drive into town if they are sleeping from a shift working graveyard. Before, it never worked out. Not that I cared. I HATE and LOATH the concept of driving hundreds of miles to go shopping. It would have just been an added benefit of visiting if I had made the store trip. Well, this last time my mom needed to sleep during the day and as she needs complete quiet or she’ll wake up, my dad and me with the wife went into town to leave here alone. We dropped off the wife at the casino ( give her tip money for three or four beers, a pack of smokes and fifteen bucks in nickel play and she can entertain herself for hours on end ) and went to the cities one used book store. I had shopped there for years, as they had a humongous science fiction section. All other used books in town were at thrift stores and sci-fi was a rarity. Well, the regular old guy wasn’t there anymore. I don’t know if the new bitch is his daughter or a new owner, but they were committing a huge and unforgivable sin. Their books were full retail price!!!!! Holy God Lord Baby Jesus On A Friggin Pogo Stick!!!!! Since I was a young teen I’ve shopped used book stores all over the country and they all follow a standard pricing scheme. You pay half the cover price to purchase, and if you are trading in for credit you receive one quarter the cover price. Obviously, stores have stayed in business for generations following this formula. But not little miss whorebag! Oh, no! She had to have full cover price for a thirty year old book! Now, granted, you did receive half price credit if you traded in. But that isn’t the point. Some of us hate giving up any book. We just collect. I actually wonder if she wasn’t a tree hugger. That would explain the penalty for not recycling. Not that we were wasting trees. We were keeping the book, not throwing it away. I think she was just being greedy.

Okay, we went to Harbor Freight. It was smaller than I expected, but it still carried quite a bit. I had two items in mind, a hoe and a file set. They didn’t have a hoe, but I did get something like fifteen files for $10. They claim a lifetime warrantee, although I have reservations on the quality. But even if they are crap, it is an improvement on no files. Not that I have any idea on the difference between a rasp and a file, but years back I did trash pick a book on sharpening. I can learn one of these days. The whole thing was, the store stunk. Bad. You know that weird smell from a lot of stuff from
? Almost something like mouth balls. The whole store was literally suffocating from that smell. I couldn’t breath in there, and I have zero respiratory problems. Dad didn’t notice it, and the minimum wage drones seemed content. I couldn’t stand being in there too long. Is it just me? How do people stay in there long enough to spend lots of money? Is a fan too much to ask for? One that sucks air out? I’ll never set foot in another outlet of theirs. Catalog/Internet shop? Okay. But not retail. China
