Badges of failure

By | September 30, 2015

This might not be the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard of, but it’ll sure do till I remember what that stupidest thing actually was. Being proud of breaking a chair is pure farcical lunacy. What’s next, being proud of your having your foot depoditated (I just made that word up) when you are 50 due… Read More »

Oh Lynn

By | September 30, 2015

Wow, I did not know that Lynn Margulis had gone completely scientifically nuts, basically. Proves that extremely intelligent people tend to make the largest mistakes. Her discoveries can never be diminished; she did what she did. But wow, she is gone.

It all repeats. Unfortunately.

Twitter Plans to Go Beyond Its 140-Character Limit. Congratulations, you’ve re-invented blogging. Which itself is just a re-invention of the BBS. Which I was using in 1986. Since tech is mostly run and built by the (clueless) young, much is forgotten. Instead of building on what came before, all is torn down, all lessons forgotten,… Read More »

Mate prefs

By | September 30, 2015

It’s hardly worth writing about because it won’t amount to anything without a huge genetic-level change in human nature, but it’s hard to believe how many FA types and parts of the feminist (?) movement are telling people it’s wrong to have sexual and mate preferences. Yeah, that’s never, ever, ever ever gonna work. Ever.

Condemned

By | September 29, 2015

I’m always surprised about how unperturbed some people are when their data is spewed all over creation — like what is happening with Windows 10. Do they not understand the risks? The danger? Or are they just plain morons? (I vote the latter.) I thought this comment said it best about it all, from here.… Read More »

Give me refuge

By | September 28, 2015

The European refugees are just desperate people trying to survive. However, that the conservative side pretends — or perhaps actually believes — that they are all evil terrorists is as false as the liberal belief that there are unlimited resources to allow hundreds of thousands of people to suddenly show up. That works right up… Read More »

Key spray

By | September 27, 2015

Keeping your keys between your knuckles as a self-defense tactic for women is worthless. At the most, you’ll damage your opponent slightly and make him angry. More likely that you’ll break your finger(s) and be too injured yourself to do anything else. Better is to buy two bottles of pepper spray. Practice what it feels… Read More »

JB

By | September 27, 2015

Don’t be happy that John Boehner is stepping down and leaving Congress. I’ve seen many uninformed liberals expressing glee at this. Who replaces him is going to be far worse. That’s why he’s stepping down. The Tea Party theocrats demanded it, and they got it.

The 15 biggest myths

By | September 26, 2015

The 15 biggest myths of our time: 1) That everything can be priced, and has a monetary value, and that it should have a monetary value. 2) That evolution did not occur to humans, and that if it did (for liberals) it definitely did not occur above the neck and is definitely, definitely not still… Read More »

Self-control

By | September 26, 2015

It’s taking every ounce of self control I have not to bid on this car. What a lovely piece of machinery. So strange to think about how astounded my 1990 self would be at the fact that my 2015 self could seriously contemplate buying something like that — and paying for it in straight-up cash.… Read More »
