Rule the world with Andrew Ryan.

Some of those were pretty good.  Conan the Libertarian gave me a good laugh.  Has a nice ring to it, actually... ;)

Currently working on Moby Dick and some Poe in the evenings.  Seriously considering starting on a novel by A.E. van Vogt (probably Slan or The Voyage of the Space Beagle) for days when Melville gets a bit too heavy for me.

RE: the horse thing; given the detail in which the PM describes the various Brony sex pictures I'm guessing that the sender (name conveniently hidden in the message) who is 'offended' by this is a troll who sent this kind of thing knowing that it would likely be posted as a way to make fun of someone who actually does put up cartoon horse sex 'art' (or have his friends make pictures like that for him) for some damn reason.  Hell, the sender could have screenshot and put it up himself with name removed.  Also, I'm pretty sure he didn't find a chapel that would marry him and a damn stuffed toy -- unless it was a scientology chapel in which case maybe they just said, 'eh fuck it, money's money.' 

Anyway, if I'm correct the troll worked fucking magic because he turned Kevinsano into an overnight 'celebrity' there by sending that.

Me over the summer.

'I saw a Dalmatian in the park today. It was the biggest dog I've ever seen. I had no idea they got so huge.'
'Are you sure it wasn't a Great Dane?'
'...'



Also:



EDIT:  I stole this model pic from Facebook and this was by far my favorite comment in the thread on that picture: "Shes not even blowing in the cartridge right....YOU HAVE TO TAKE IT OUT OF THE CONSOLE BITCH!"

It's weird saying how I prefer Kingdom Hearts though...

Anyways, enjoy!


Kavinsano has become an overnight legend on Deviart Art.  I feel bad that this was supposed to be a private letter.... but his fault for sharing it on the internet.

A part of me always likes to believe these sorts of things are concocted by a troll. ^-^ It keeps my sanity.

I'm pretty sure the person sending that letter was trolling.

I can't believe no one cared about the Ninja Turtles electing a new pope. :(

On the other hand, that letter is awesome.

In the 'stuff you shouldn't hare on the internet' category...

In today's news, Cyprus is planning to levy a 'one time' tax on the deposits of citizens and non-citizens.  Anyone with under 100k euros in their bank account will have 6.75% removed, more and 9.9% is removed.  Needless to say, this is totally not causing any problems like people rushing to banks or ATMs to drain their accounts before their money is stolen.

EDIT: Good news, they've (shockingly) voted against this.

I hadn't seen the Che changed my life pic before.  That one's great.  And the pun stuff was awesome.

I was surprised that punk kids turned out to be the villains rather than the government tearing it down for being too fun. But maybe canada's not as bad with that kind of thing.

This post reminds me of a discussion I saw about an incident in Australia; a construction worker fell off of some scaffolding and died and the government immediately set up an investigation into the cause of death, so on and so forth.  Being used to the Aussie government's nanny tendencies several people commenting on the article declared that scaffolding was going to be banned.  Someone insisted that they were just doing a study for that individual case and weren't going to ban anything.  Another individual countered that, insisting that the conclusion of the study was going to be that you have to have a triple digit IQ to safely use scaffolding and that it is therefore safer to ban it than to try to screen all potential construction workers with an IQ test. :D

Oh well, they'll get another chance at it next year when the teenagers come back to burn it down again.

I really shouldn't have laughed as hard as I did at this because it's probably true.

(a) Some assholes would actually burn down a park, for whatever goddamned reason.  I honestly think destroying public property, especially a "free play place" set up for anyone, is disgusting.

We don't always see eye to eye (even though you're generally awesome), but I damn sure agree with you about this.  One thing that drove me nuts about the public library in San Antonio--or rather, about their 'customers'--is that I would try to check out DVDs from there and Every. Single. Fucking. One. was scratched to hell and completely unplayable.  Even releases that had only been out for a month or so.  After this happened with eight DVDs in a row, including an obscure one of interviews with mythologist Joseph Campbell, I just gave up and didn't bother renting DVDs from there for years. 

Oddly enough, I never had this problem with DVDs from the movie store around the corner from the library.  Ever.  I suspect that it's because they keep your credit card on file and charge you for it if you tear up a DVD, which makes people inclined to behave a bit more responsibly.  Mind you, scratching up a DVD is not as bad (obviously!) as burning down a children's park but seeing that kind of abuse of communal property still pissed me off, and not just because it inconvenienced me.

About two towns west of Toronto was this "secret park".  It was THREE (kid-sized) stories tall, tall slide at the top, two wooden houses (girls loved it) and it had a FREAKING ZIPLINE.  It's gone now, but I'd be damned if it wasn't one of the coolest parks on the planet.

That sounds fucking EPIC.

There was a very beautiful park on the island of Kauai (in Hawaii) that was hand-built by the community and a couple of local artists even contributed by doing some painting on it, ocean scenes, that kind of thing.  Wonderful work.  Unfortunately, it was hit by a bolt of lightning and burned down.  I suppose that's somewhat better than the park being by hit a group of assholes that should be hit by lightning themselves, though.


I just started watching Doctor Who a couple of weeks ago for the first time and I've been making my way through the series.  I'm now on the Christmas episode of season three.  It's been awesome.

Haha - that is both random and amazing.

Indeed.

Tunnels: Blue coins are just... price reduction coupons you get by buying stuff on gamersgate. You get some percentage of what you pay back in blue coins. Think frequent flyer miles.

The blue coin system isn't an EA thing.


Oh okay, my bad then.

But still, poor Germany!


Hahaha

Also, Lovecraft <3

I loved the dog one, that said, it did need a few modifications; more dogs should have been labeled 'little dog' on the male side, the average dude could identify a Doberman or Rottweiler or German Shepherd, and in the interest of fairness (and truth!) there should have been a silhouette of an English Bulldog that read 'ugly dog' on the girl's side and 'bulldog' on the guy's side.  'Shark dog' was pretty awesome, though, as well as OMG FUCKING EIN.  And by awesome I mean true. :D

Needed a chihuahua entry to explain why females/anybody would give any fucks about those fuckers (male entry would probably have been 'the Taco Bell dog'/'hideously obnoxious fuckers').

If my (male) anthropology professor is any indication chihuahua would be labeled on the male side as 'kickable dog'.

This thread needs this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Im1bCKoQs8


That was awesome.

I understand that e-mail dilemma quite well.
