Once Again I Don’t Leave My Grave

By | September 27, 2017

I’ve never been so angry for so long at someone who wasn’t a person as I am about what Mozilla is doing to Firefox, and how cavalier and hostile the organization is about the whole decision. The dev arrogance (though typical) is astounding. They are digging their own grave, but alas that it harms me,… Read More »

It makes me very angry that any other Democrat besides Hillary Clinton would’ve won the election easily over a chump like Trump. Now we have to live with four years of this shit, and morons like Kendzior and Drum going on about how Bernie Sanders and Russians sabotaged the coronation. It turns out — as… Read More »

no one can gain 15 pounds of muscle in 3 months — Casey Johnston (@caseyjohnston) September 26, 2017 This is manifestly untrue. I gained well over 15 pounds of muscle in only two months in US Army basic training. I went from 135 pounds to 153 pounds from early September 1994 to late… Read More »

MaDE in America

By | September 24, 2017

When you leave the US and go to basically anywhere else in the Western world, you realize how much the US has regressed in relation to the rest of its direct comparisons. The US is not approaching third world status as many claim. It’s already well there.

All ya’ll realize that Puerto Ricans are American citizens, right? It’s not a foreign country, which is the way I see the press and most people talking about it.
