Since they wouldn’t get the joke most likely I will offer my caption.

“So uhh, hey Katy, uh, you know, uh, well, today’s letter is ‘W’ so uh, do you know any words that start with ‘W’?  I’m going with uh, What’s your situation?  No really, What’s the Sitch.”

Inhalant Cures Shyness

Posted by Wickedpinto on September 24, 2010

Found at DailyMail (a daily must read, Surber digs up a lot of good stuff.)

The hook?

“A nasal spray could cure shyness, a new study suggests.”

Yeah, it’s called cocaine.

If interested in the whole story about oxytocin, apparently a hormone, click trough Surbers Daily Scoreboard so he gets the attention.  I just wanted to toss in some snark.

Lets play “name that inhalant.”

1.)  There is an inhalant that can be used to increase appetite, what is it?

2.) There is an inhalant that increases the likelihood of skin lesions and loss of teeth, what is it?

3.) There is an inhalant that can almost double your prison sentence when you rob someone so you can get some more of that glass D.  What is it?

4.)  There is an inhalant that quadruples the odds of spontaneous establishment of a drum circle.

Yeahp.

Posted by Wickedpinto on September 1, 2010

Big Boss of Morons is right.  Yeahp.

You wanted the job, dickhead, so go down to Human Resources and put your friggin’ Social Security card on the copying machine like every other person.

All the arguments I think are poorly placed, but I think there are very rational reasons to ask “WTF YOU HIDING BASTARD!”

Don’t believe any of the Conspiracy Theories about Obama other than the ones that are obviously and verifiably true.  Like his documented distrust and dislike of white people.  That’s not a conspiracy, It’s In HIS EFFING BOOK!

As for birth certificate, when I was a teen I dated a girl who attended college, and stayed in a dorm.  I always needed 2 pieces of ID to enter an EFFING DORM! to bang my effing GIRLFRIEND!

Don’t think it’s out of line to ask the “Leader” of the free world to cough up a document that the people who obey him have to cough up before enlisting, TO EFFING DIE!

Just saying.

The 80%

Posted by Wickedpinto on August 24, 2010

The title is a reference to something that a lot of people reference, and I can’t find a cite, that you shouldn’t fight with people who agree with you 80% of the time, and disagree only 20%.

That argument was used with McCain, that argument has been used with Lincoln Chaffee and with the Maine girls.

It’s also been used by James Joyner (VERY Bright guy, and a valuable resource.) and Doug Mataconis (good research) and the others at Outside the Beltway, as well as Rick Moran, who has a flair for the word, and I believe is a classical liberal, which fits my general political style, of “Rightwingnuthouse.”

But I am sick of being told to stop arguing with people who agree with me philosophically 80% of the time.  Not because I don’t think 80% politically isn’t enough of an agreement, but I am sick of those who assign themselves in the 80% who agree, philosophically, tend to spend 80% of their time bashing those who agree with them 80%.

I have come to the conclusion that the entire concept of the “80%” is actually a farce used by those who find satisfaction in bashing their philosophical and political brethren to gain status with others.  That doesn’t change that they are good people, or are, in fact, 80% or 60 or there about percentage in agreement with conservatives, and definitely much more informed than I.  That isn’t my problem.

My problem is, why do you directly insult, or insinuate insult or completely ignore the 80% you agree with in your essays, only to focus on the 20%?

It makes me mad.  Another member of this group (though I think if he counts himself 80% his math is really really bad.)

David Brooks.

A Column by David Brooks, one of the 80%.

In 1811, the popular novelist Fanny Burney learned she had breast cancer and underwent a mastectomy without anesthesia.

Thanks for that, what’s the point?

Burney’s struggle reminds one that character is not only moral, it is also mental. Heroism exists not only on the battlefield or in public but also inside the head, in the ability to face unpleasant thoughts.

“Reminds one,” meaning Brooks, because he’s smart enough to reference someone from 1811, Brooks is reminded, because he’s so smart, and you who aren’t reminded are Dumb.

In the mental sphere, this meant conquering mental laziness with arduous and sometimes numbingly boring lessons.

He’s paraphrasing there, so that you stupid people can understand what the well known novelist, who not many, and virtually none of the general populace actually, you “know” and almost definitely not well.  It’s important for you who don’t know her, or him, well, then you are mentaly lazy.

Capitalism has also undermined this ethos.

Here Brooks proves his pure conservative nature by attacking capitalism, since choosing what is valuable and making up your own mind is against those things that are well known, Like Fanny Burney.  Capitalism is why she’s not well known, and looking out for your own self interests instead of listening to those who know that Fanney Burney is well known, well, that’s just “mental laziness”

You Mentally Lazy buffoons!  Don’t you understand the importance of a well creased pant leg?!

In this atmosphere, we’re all less conscious of our severe mental shortcomings and less inclined to be skeptical of our own opinions.

9 paragraphs in a small op-ed, and now we get to it!

It’s important to be skeptical of our own opinions and we should learn how to be skeptical from someone who asked no significant questions of Obama, bashed Palin and wrote a book about bush being dumb but effective.

YES!  Superhero with an Op-Ed, When will you teach the Special forces how to do their job?  We all know You are so much better than everyone else, that we need a guy like you in the warzone!

We have confirmation bias; we pick out evidence that supports our views. We are cognitive misers; we try to think as little as possible. We are herd thinkers and conform our perceptions to fit in with the group.*

“We have confirmation bias,”  Yes “we” do, it’s called, “opinion” and “judgment.”  as for “We are herd thinkers and conform our perceptions to fit in with the group.” I am curious as to who he is calling “we.”

Is he using the Well Known, “Royal We?”  he’s speaking for all of us?  Probably, but he also has the right since he is familiar with the well known author who wrote a personal letter and essay about 160 years before I was born.  How stupid of me to not have the Fanney Burney collection in my personal library.

Lacking that, I must clearly listen to this light of logic and meaning, but wait!  we are about to learn what David Brooks, the connoisseur  of 200 year old essays, judge of mental laziness and creseelines.

The rigors of combat discourage it.

Yes David Brooks, it’s all about the rigors of combat.  David Brooks to replace Petraeus.

Best Family EVER!

Posted by Wickedpinto on August 11, 2010

I think I might be related to the Jet Blue, F You Attendendant.

When you think of your mom, or rather other peoples moms, you think of that caring nurturing and sometimes overbearing bundle of love who is nice to all of your friends, even the friends she doesn’t like.   This guys mom?  Not so much.  She goes straight for the balls.

“I would have snapped, too,” insisted the mother, a former flight attendant now battling lung cancer. “In fact, I probably would have snapped more.”

and then think of your kindly old grandfather who sits in a nice chair smoking a pipe and has all kinds of folksy yet wise advice.  Yeah, that’s not this guys grandfather.  This Guys Grampa is GRADE A AWESOME!

Neithamer’s grandfather, Harry, 82, said the incident was clearly the passenger’s fault.

“That passenger must a bitch, just a pure bitch, because nobody else could get him wound up like that,” the granddad told The Post.

Those are the kinds of quotes that just scream “Yeahp, this is genuine.” unlike all of the political and sanitized BS you get all too often.  You want to know if a quote is real, and that a character reference is sincere?  You find the guy who’s willing to say, “Yeah, he had a little trouble at his last job, but that’s because the customer was a maniacal BITCH!”  That is heartfelt sentiment right there.

I think his family should be interviewed for every incident that is broadcast on the news.  It could be a late night show.  Like nancy grace, only topical and less insane, while still being entertaining.

Hey libs

Posted by mesablue on August 10, 2010

What’s funny is, the place I found this wanted to prove the opposite point of what is actually the “real” point.

So, once again — Hey libs!

John Ausonius

Posted by mesablue on August 6, 2010

Worst. Serial Killer. Ever.

* On August 3, 1991, the Laser Man shot his first person. The victim was a 21 year old immigrant to Sweden from Eritrea, whom Ausonius shot in the back. The victim, however, survived.[3] Two of the victim’s friends said they saw a circle of red light on his body before they heard the shot.

* On the evening of October 21, 1991, outside the Stockholm University, Shahram Khosravi, a 25-year-old student of Iranian origin, was shot in the face but survived.

* On the night of October 27, 1991, a homeless man of Greek origin was shot twice in the stomach. The victim saw a bright red light, heard the shots but managed to run away. Although wounded, he survived.

* In the middle of the day of November 1, 1991, Ausonius walked into a restaurant kitchen in Stockholm where he had seen an immigrant and shot him once in the head and several times in the stomach. The victim, Heberson Vieira Da Costa, a musician from Brazil, saw a red light before he was shot, and got a good look at his assailant. The victim survived, seriously wounded, but was able to give a description of the Laser Man to the police.

* Ausonius continued his shootings and, on November 8, 1991, he mortally wounded Jimmy Ranjbar, another Iranian student, who died the next day.

Ausonius then went to Las Vegas to gamble and visit the Grand Canyon. The Laser Man disappeared for a few months, but he would return.

* On January 22, 1992, Ausonius went to Uppsala, where he walked up to a couple, and shot the man in the head. The victim, Erik Bongcam-Rudloff, was a Ph.D. student in medical sciences. He survived and is now a scientist representing Sweden in several international scientific networks.

* January 23, 1992, back in Stockholm, Ausonius shot a black bus driver, originally from Zimbabwe, in the middle of the day. The victim was shot in the chest but survived.[3] That evening, Ausonius walked into a Somali club in central Stockholm and shot two men, both of whom also survived.

* On the night of January 28, 1992, Ausonius walked up to a kiosk where Isa Aybar, an immigrant of Turkish origin, was working. Ausonius shot him four times in the head and arm, and walked away. Aybar was seriously wounded but managed to call the police and survived.

* On January 30, 1992 Ausonius shot his last victim, from Lebanon, in the head, a store owner in Hägerstensåsen, paralyzing but not killing him.

I’m feeling more than a little sorry for Jimmy Ranjbar.
