Alarming News

Tuesday, December 4th, 2007

Karol Sheinin is a very nice young woman, but after getting into a futile discussion on her blog, I must conclude that her readers, at least the ones who post comments, are mostly imbeciles.

I’m jealous, however, that she gets a much bigger audience than I do.

Princess Cruises Alienates Hundreds of Potential Customers

Saturday, December 1st, 2007

You can bet she won’t be using Princess Cruises.

Too bad Mrs. Evanchik’s rag didn’t pick up the story. I betcha Krugman could have had some fun with it. But he’s very serious nowadays. He’s probably grumpy because he still has to work for a living. A mediocre prognosticator, he has excellent hindsight.

Surge On

Here’s a pretty fun video lampooning the “surge” strategy in Iraq.

Giraffe Fighting

Sunday, September 23rd, 2007

Just when you think you’ve seen everything, here is a video of two giraffes fighting. It’s a bit like the last rounds of a heavyweight fight, only the giraffes use their heads as fists, swinging them at each other’s bodies, while they stay close, leaning up against one another.

Amazing.

Huh?

Wait.  So let me get this straight.   No matter how many half-formed ideas I have, if I don’t write them down, nothing happens here.  I can’t just click on this site a few times and stuff will magically appear like on the other sites I visit?  I have to do something?

Dang, this Internet is hard work.

With Leather — Funny Sports Blog

Saturday, September 15th, 2007

The sports blog With Leather is funny. I mean that it gives me hearty, stupid yuck-yucks, which are sorely appreciated in this complex and dangerous world.

Where else will you find links to two minutes and forty-seven seconds of bicycle mishaps and dead-on appreciations for the essence of professional baseball?

I would even recommend this to my non-sports following friends, especially the men, as it will de-wussify you just a little bit.

Herpes and the Burning Man

Tuesday, September 11th, 2007

Sex chronicler Violet Blue reveals a little-known legacy of the Burning Man festival — increases in sexually transmitted diseases. Health clinics in the San Francisco area report a regular spike in sexually transmitted diseases in the weeks after the big brouhaha on the playa. Once again, it is shown that hippies and their cultural descendants are hazardous to your health.

Attorney General Gonzales Was Always Good for a Laugh

Wednesday, August 29th, 2007

With even the conservative National Review admitting that departing Attorney General Gonzales is an incompetent way out of his depth,  there can be little doubt that his departure is well overdue.  But every cloud has a silver lining, as the liberal Talking Points Memo has helpfully pointed out.  They have compiled a video “top ten” of Gonzales miscues.  Saturday Night Live hasn’t been this funny in years.

Check it out.

Why I Did Not See Brokeback Mountain

Saturday, August 18th, 2007

Todd Seavey’s recent comment on his blog on why he saw Brokeback Mountain, “it was a lady’s idea,” prompted me to write these long-simmering thoughts.

I think that there is a whole little volume waiting to be written on the phenomenon of women pressuring straight men into seeing Brokeback Mountain. Here’s my contribution. (more…)
