Our Wacky World—12/23/2012

Rat News—Galapagos rats marked for death. Thanksgiving news—the usual bullshit:
"But James Mabe, the manager of that 800-worker House of Raeford plant in West Columbia, S.C that reported no musculoskeletal disorders over four years, had an explanation for the apparent immunity of the company’s employees from these injuries that are so common for everyone else in the industry.. 'Hispanics are very good with their hands and working with a knife. We’ve gotten less complaints,' and 'It’s more like a natural movement for them.'"

Some interesting videos came my way recently. Here's one of Bigfoot talking. It's amazing how much it sounds like the sort of noises you can make with a toy mic and an old cassette tape recorder. They mis-spelled "existence" in the link, BTW. 

Check out the ice fishing in Finland.

Today is Black Friday. Here's the perfect Xmas gift. And Anonymous is claiming that they hacked Karl Rove's computer network and prevented voter fraud. If it's thats true it would be the perfect Xmas gift.


Remember Tia Tequila? Neither do I, except as a name that floats by on the Interwebs at rare intervals. Regardless of whatever she was before, she is now a full-tilt flavor-ade drinker:


This is from her "temporary" blog (warning—woo central).  Here's her "new" blog. If the text on the second one is all fucked up and unreadable, yeah, that's what it looks like on my computer, too.

What happens in Arlington doesn't stay in Arlington:
"Lindsey Stone posted the picture of herself making the obscene gesture at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, next to a sign at the military cemetery that asks for 'Silence and Respect,' in October and the snapshot quickly went viral."
Good luck with the rest of your life. (Mail Online)

Along similar lines, remember when "the magic negro" first got elected and Rush Limbaugh said that that meant the end of racism in America? No, that didn't make any sense to me, either. And it sure as hell doesn't apply now:
"In case you were hopeful that Obama winning a second term was some kind of indication that racism doesn't really exist anymore, check out Twitter."
Look at the slideshow. (Jezebel)

Rememberthe Internet never forgets. And it will come back to bite you on the ass.

In other Asshole News, here's Penn Jillette talking about being on Donald Trump's vanity TV show:
"I wasn’t even going to say anything about Trump’s hair. I live in a glass house. I’ve always had ugly, out-of-style hair. Trump’s hair is a lot better than mine—but as I sat there for hours half listening to Donald carry on, it struck me exactly what his hair looked like. It looks like cotton candy made of piss. That revelation came to me, and I had to type it here."
This one is serious comedy gold. A must-read. (Salon)

The election is over. Obama won. Heads are exploding all over the place. Some Republicans have seen the writing on the wall and are grudgingly embracing something remotely resembling reality. I could have made an entire post out of sour grapes and cries of "if only we'd been more conservative". But I won't even bother. Well, here's one stupid statement:
"We need someone like a Jerry Falwell to come back and resurrect the Moral Majority movement where you get people that have a moral background who are willing to come together and vote for moral issues that are important to this nation."
They're now at the point where they're praying for/to St. Falwell. As if he lead this nation to "victory" when he was still alive. All I ever heard the man do was complain. (Crooks & Liars)

No link, says it all

You may have heard that John McAfee is hiding out somewhere in Belize. The story gets more bizarre every day but this early post probably nails what's actually happening:
"McAfee's intensive use of psychosis-inducing hallucinogens would go a long way toward explaining his growing estrangement from his friends and from the community around him. If he was producing large quantities of these chemicals, as implied on Bluelight, that would also shed light on his decision to associate with some of Belize's most hardened drug-gang members."
"mdpv is serious shit. would explain his paranoia and erraticness. i've been thru that. i played with mdpv for about two weeks, then started seeing shadow people in the corner of my eye, and what amphetamine heads call 'tree-cops'... its essentially really, REALLY f-ed [fucked] up meth."

After all of the above this is positively quaint:
"The United States Postal Service acknowledged on Friday that one of its mail carriers did not report a corpse at a Denver home because he mistook the body for a Halloween display."
Chicago Tribune

And finally, some good news:
"I want you to hear me tonight, I am not saying that President Obama is the Antichrist, I am not saying that at all. One reason I know he's not the Antichrist is the Antichrist is going to have much higher poll numbers when he comes"

A tattoo is forever, too
