Happy New Year. The many days of Shutdownmas are not over!
2019 in China, coincidentally enough, will be ... the Year of the Pig. :rw)

Look at it this way. 2019 could end up being even more ... interesting than 2018. Can't get worse, can it? (I know, I know, I said that about 2017.)

"May you live in interesting times".

Betting pool: does Trump survive 2019 in office? :D

My humble attempt at an image representing 2018-19.

Just found out Key West has not one, not two, but six weird drops tonight. "Sushi" I already knew about, I knew they did that every year.

https://www.localnews8.com/lifestyle/dr ... /958218141

5. Key West, Florida: A few to choose from!
Leave it to Key West to come up with multiple, eccentric drops.

One: A stewardess takes flight

A restaurant in a historic building known as the birthplace of Pan American World Airways hosts the newest soiree in Key West's busy New Year's Eve lineup. First Flight Island Restaurant & Brewery pays homage to its aviation roots with a Gatsby-themed party culminating in the descent of a makeshift airplane carrying a Pan Am flight attendant, or stewardess as they were called in the defunct airline's heyday.

Two: Red high heel drop

Famed drag queen Gary "Sushi" descends in a giant red high heel shoe from the balcony of the Bourbon St. Pub. VIP balcony tickets usually sell out fast, and Duval Street is jammed with people who party into the wee hours.

Three: Lowering of the pirate wench

Visit the tall ship America 2.0 in front of Schooner Wharf Bar to see "pirate wench" and bar owner Evalena Worthington descend the ship's mast.

Four: Conch shell drop

The conch shell is an enduring symbol of Key West, and this drop happens above Sloppy Joe's.

Five: Key lime wedge

The Ocean Key Resort has a fake Key lime wedge splashing into a giant margarita glass.

Six: Tuna drop

If you can't make it to the Smokin Tuna Saloon before midnight, you can try watching their tuna cam for a live stream of its tuna drop.
[snip][end]

I think they might put Trump in charge of the Baloney drop of Lebanon, PA. :D

I'm not going to the Keys, and I ain't going downtown this year to hear Mr. 305 Pitbull for the 80th time and watch the Big Orange drop. I remember when there was an Orange Bowl parade. They still do the King Mango Strut (the parody) in Coconut Grove. I'm going to a friends' party, and I'll watch Big Orange drop from there. :mrgreen:

Yes. Stick up for your friends, be nice to people you like until it hurts, and try for ideas that are yours and not the media's. In this culture, these are acts of subversion.

You might also try being happy. That is an act of revolution.

Somewhere out on the desert they dropped a huge wooden bunch of grapes.
