This review is from: Avery Nonstick Heavy-Duty EZD Reference View 2 Inch Black Binder (79692) (Office Product)
I tend to deal with a fair amount of women in both my personal and professional life and I struggle with keeping them secured within the standard 1" binders. I bought this on a whim in the hopes that I could possibly go from roughly 15 women per 1" binder to possibly 20. These binders are indeed heavy-duty, and with the 2-inch binder I can easily fit 35 women for each binder. The clear pocket allows me to make cover pages and easily organize by hair color, body type, culinary skills, and general moodiness. I did not give this 5 stars because I did notice that the inner pocket tends to stretch after a fair amount of use, particularly with the larger framed female group. Overall, I would recommend this for anyone seeking a more durable and permanent solution for the organization, selection, and storage of women into binders.

She asked me to return it. Didn't like the color
Then again, she is a woman - like I even listen to them. One additional feature such as soundproofing would have been a nice touch. Other than that, it's basic and travels well to the cayman islands.
Quote:
This binder does the job!
I bought this to help me organize my inventory of women. I had been using the Avery 1" binders and found them too small to accommodate the fairly large number of women I maintain.

PROS:
-Tough! Some of my women are really feisty. This binder has survived some of the most ornery gals. The rings inside are as good as new!
-Lots of space. Some of my women need to be kept separated, especially when it's their "time of month." I can tuck `em away with dividers and, even if it's a bit overfull, it can still handle the extra stress.
-Organization is great. There are 4 separate pockets to store my loose women.

CONS:
-My main issue is that the pockets are so wide that my women will occasionally slide to one side during a rough ride, but it's purely an aesthetic annoyance.

so for those that don't know... Okinawa is going through an international incident. Two sailors raped an okinawan girl and slashed her throat (she lived) while they were on TDY here for a day. For those that aren't familiar with US military rapes of the locals here.... the list is pretty gruesome.. (we raped and killed a 12 year old back in 95') Okinawans hate us and etc.

Anyway... protests and riots are starting up, and I just got stopped by two really big jap dudes asking if I was a marine... I lied through my teeth saying I was a tourist with a nice flat top. Anyway, these guys were looking to dish out the beat down. We've had reports of a couple other military members getting jumped and ****.


This sucks

Not only are we not allowed to get into fights or engage the locals for the next week.
But if we get jumped, we can't fight back unless there are "dire"circumstances. They want us to hightail and run and call the base cops.

Just made it a General Order, so if you break it; out of the military you go.
Seriously, Kadena has more General orders than I've seen at other bases or heard of at any other bases. **** is insane.


Fun Fact: A couple MARSOC Marines got super drunk a while back, walked off base, beat the **** out of a bus driver, stole his bus, went for a joyride, crashed it in a ditch, they were able to somehow miraculously pull it out and tried to drive it on base to bring it to the auto hobby shop to fix it (at 3am.. LOL) and give it back without them noticing.

What was their repercussions? Zero Japanese punishment, some paperwork and one loss of rank, a slap on the wrist should I say so myself.

Default permission slip apparently needed to offer free education

What is it about liberals that they feel they need to control everything? So free courses--LEARNING--is offered online, and the Minnesota libs decide that they didn't give permission to give education away for free and tried to shut it down.

CLOWNS. Just like everywhere else, the teacher's union gravy train sees that their time is coming to an end. Boo hoo.

because they know better than you. So they'll tell you want to do, how to live your life, how to spend your money, all in the name of freedom.

"People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf."

"In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act."

"If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face"

"Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past."

"War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength."


"Political language... is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind."

"Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them."

"All the war-propaganda, all the screaming and lies and hatred, comes invariably from people who are not fighting."

"Serious sport has nothing to do with fair play. It is bound up with hatred, jealousy, boastfulness, disregard of all rules and sadistic pleasure in witnessing violence. In other words, it is war minus the shooting."

"All political thinking for years past has been vitiated in the same way. People can foresee the future only when it coincides with their own wishes, and the most grossly obvious facts can be ignored when they are unwelcome."

"Freedom is the right to tell people what they do not want to hear."

"Every war when it comes, or before it comes, is represented not as a war but as an act of self-defense against a homicidal maniac."

"We have now sunk to a depth at which restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men."

"Liberal: a power worshipper without power."

"One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes a revolution in order to establish a dictatorship."

"If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear."

"Happiness can exist only in acceptance."

"Man is the only creature that consumes without producing. He does not give milk, he does not lay eggs, he is too weak to pull the plough, he cannot run fast enough to catch rabbits. Yet he is lord of all the animals."

"A tragic situation exists precisely when virtue does not triumph but when it is still felt that man is nobler than the forces which destroy him."

"Big Brother is watching you."

In a recent interview, actor Hugo Weaving dismissed his voice work for the "Transformers" movies in typical Hollywood fashion.

Quote:
"It was one of the only things I’ve ever done where I had no knowledge of it, I didn’t care about it, I didn’t think about it. They wanted me to do it. In one way, I regret that bit. I don’t regret doing it, but I very rarely do something if it’s meaningless. It was meaningless to me, honestly. I don’t mean that in any nasty way. I did it. It was a two-hour voice job, while I was doing other things … my link to that and to Michael Bay is so minimal. I have never met him. I was never on set. I’ve seen his face on Skype. I know nothing about him, really. I just went in and did it. I never read the script. I just have my lines, and I don’t know what they mean.”
"Tranformers" director Michael Bay, in typical Bay fashion, had a few things to say back:

Quote:
"Do you ever get sick of actors that make $15 million a picture, or even $200,000 for voiceover work that took a brisk one hour and 43 minutes to complete, and then complain about their jobs? With all the problems facing our world today, do these grumbling thespians really think people reading the news actually care about trivial complaints that their job wasn’t ‘artistic enough” or “fulfilling enough”? I guess The Hollywood Reporter thinks so. What happened to people who had integrity, who did a job, got paid for their hard work, and just smiled afterward? Be happy you even have a job – let alone a job that pays you more than 98% of the people in America. I have a wonderful idea for all those whiners: They can give their “unhappy job money” to a wonderful Elephant Rescue. It’s the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Africa. I will match the funds they donate."

I do feel bad for you 'small government' types. It seems you have zero candidates running for you this time.


Also raise your hand if you didn't see this coming.

oh cool. Romney spent less on security after 9/11 on the successful and profitable Winter Olympics (a long time public/private partnership and money the Fed is supposed to spend on [infastructure/security]) than Obama threw away on Solyndra (Money the Fed is not supossed to spend on [winners/losers]).

I heard he even repaid all the loans they borrowed...

How much did Obama waste trying to lobby for the Chicago Olympics?






Meanwhile, Chavez, Castro, and Putin have endorsed Obama.

All my hippie liberal acquaintances believe that without capitalism or incentive to produce there will be a magic supply of unlimited Ipads, Iphones, latest models cars, food... etc for everyone. Yay!!

Edit: I consider this a good video
