Help a noob.
Anybody out there with Blogger
experience know how to get the comments working? I'm still learning HTML and I'm not all that confident in my ability to adjust the template.
The prompt ("¿Como?") shows up at the bottom of each post, but when I try to post a test comment, it doesn't show up, and I get this at the top of the comments window:
Warning: mysql_num_rows(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /home/bighar/public_html/blogspeak/blogspeak.php on line 134
I've just emailed BlogSpeak, but I don't expect to get an answer right away on a holiday weekend.
UPDATE: Figured it out with a bit of help from Harry at BlogSpeak. W00t!
The PETArds strike again
By now, unless you've been living in a cave, you've heard all about the "liberated minks" of Washington State. If you have
been living in a cave, here's a page of linky goodness
Now, before you read the following quotations from alt.tasteless, be aware that I do not condone prison rape in any form or fashion. Be aware, though, that neither do I condone other forms of sexual assault, murder, the torture of small furry animals, or public defecation...but that's never stopped me from joking about any of 'em.
"Bobbi Hatch" writes in alt.tasteless:
I can almost picture what is going to happen when the first of the limp-wristed lentil brigade is sentenced to the state pen, tossed into a cell, finds out his cellmate looks like a huge Neanderthal and has a matching IQ.
"Whatcha in for, brother?"
"I vandalized a chef's property because he specializes in foie gras. Does this place serve vegetarian entrees?"
A. Lizard helpfully suggests:
obfunny: walking around in a leather jacket made from the skin of an Animal Liberation Front member.
obfunnier: 10,000 minks. 1 cage. All the members of the Animal Liberation Front. 50 webcams. Pay-per-view.

I'll spring for the popcorn, Liz. You bring the

Hi, welcome to my blog. You may have seen me commenting at a variety of weblogs, mostly right of center, particularly Little Green Footballs
(hi, Charles!). If you're acquainted with alt.tasteless
, you may recognize my handle from there, where I now post under MizDaisyCutter.
I was gonna keep two blogs, one for political commentary, and one for tasteless and cynical humor, writing the former under this nick and the latter under "MizDaisyCutter." Then I thought....nah. I should pay (well, eventually) for two
blogs because you can't take both sides of me? Hey, there are a zillion other blogs out there, and you're bound to like at least a few of them.
And, most of all, I'm so goddamned lazy about doing anything I don't get paid for — not to mention that I'm unemployed right now, and I'm going back to school in a week and a half — that you'll be lucky if I post regularly in one
blog, let alone two.
So, if you're a socially conservative or mildly P.C. type who knows me from political weblogs, be aware I'll probably write things that offend you. Not just posts that push the envelope on Blogger's limits on "vulgar" comments (I'm sure I'll have my share of TOSsers because of this), but ones in which my political sensibilities clearly fall on the left side of the fence, such as abortion, gays, and drug use. I'll try to stick a warning on such posts, though, so you can skip them.
EX-B/F FROM FIVE YEARS AGO: You're pretty conservative.
ME: But how can I be conservative if I like bathroom humor and sick jokes and all that?
EX-B/F: Well, you're a juvenile conservative.
Just between you and me, I think juvenile_conservative.blogspot.com would be an URL much better served in the hands of a high-school Republican.
