Coffinated

By | April 30, 2019

You know, vampires sleeping in coffins is a brilliant idea. Ever been inside a coffin? It’s very quiet in there. That might be something I need to start doing since I cannot tolerate noise while sleeping. I sleep very lightly and a mite landing on a gnat’s butt wakes me up. Since vampires are supposed… Read More »

Crime de la Crime

By | April 30, 2019

Company at heart of 97,000% drug price hike bribed doctors to boost sales. As I noted, the entirety of the US medical establishment is a criminal enterprise. Please observe that this doesn’t make every single medical professional a criminal, but does mean that the entire enterprise itself is a criminal one. If you are not… Read More »

Burger King will sell meatless burgers, but they’ll cost even more than regular Whoppers. Told you so. This is a huge boon for companies now that the propaganda is starting to work. They can peddle an inferior product at inflated prices while greenwashing themselves so hard that they emit viridescent Cherenkov radiation*. The future of… Read More »

I want to punch Nazis and liberals who want to ban single-use plastics. I know those drooling libs don’t deserve it nearly as much, but they are just about as stupid in their own way and surely deserve some face-punchage.

The Con

By | April 28, 2019

This is the con, essentially. Sleek neoliberal bastards who eagerly spout diversity slogans have convinced us that the true threat to everything good is some pickup-truck driving Uncle Ted in a MAGA hat. We donate tons of free labor to enrich the sleek bastards in return for the chance to rubbish Uncle Ted online. In… Read More »

Not In the Refrigerator

By | April 28, 2019

The Leftovers was so deliriously good. And Nora Durst is the only character from a TV show I’ve ever actually missed when not watching the show itself. That Nora Durst is not a real person is just wrong, somehow.

It’s a strange paradox of life that your reputation is often better the more you don’t care what other people think of you, and the more you can afford to not be concerned. When you’re striving and struggling for every crumb, they are hard indeed to wangle but when you don’t need them or want… Read More »

I’d rather smack myself in the face repeatedly with a boat oar than live in a tiny house.

The details might be challenging but the basic story is simple: Your working 60 hour weeks, to the degree it is financially motivated, is not virtuous but imposes huge negative externalities through competition onto the rest of us. We should tax the fuck out of it. https://t.co/B4QJWg3Y3c — Steve Randy Waldman (@interfluidity) April 26, 2019… Read More »
