For the Record...

...I would have gone with Dirk the Blogging or Dragon's Blog. And there would definitely be a Lizard King or Headless Horseman photo op. I mean, come on Blogust, quit half-assing the nerdery.


I refuse to believe this actually happened. There has to be some missing information here. Somebody in this story is a terrorist or something.

Let Me Get This Straight

Some city officials in Florida argue against paying for a pointless study, call for more parental responsibility, and would rather not take away another liberty from the citizens? Well, obviously they are heartless gargoyles who hate children.

Garotzuva Is Back From The Dead

Any thoughts on this?

Update: I fixed the link.

Repeal Don't Ask, Don't Tell

My Favorite Article Ever!

And it doesn't take long to deliver the goods either. Right away we are blessed with this line

"The asteroid, called 1999 RQ36, has a 1-in-1,000 chance of actually hitting the Earth at some point before the year 2200, but is most likely to hit us on 24th September 2184."

They aren't certain if it will happen, but they are almost certain when it will happen. That's as funny to me as when people say "sometimes always" when making their point.

If you ask me, this whole "it needs to be destroyed 100 years before it hits its target" is just a way to dig up some more dollars. Which is fine by me, I would love for more space travel.

More on the Booze Ban or...

...Marti Emerald is a cunt. This statement is amazing:

“This isn’t just the San Diego City Council saying ‘no, no, no’ to things, this is the San Diego City Council trying to keep people alive,” Councilwoman Marti Emerald said.

Wow, thanks, City Council. I also love how they constantly claim that this is closing a loophole in the original ban, but later when they are questioned about the legality of amending the law without a vote, they claim it is a law entirely of itself. Crooked fucks.

More of the Same

More lawsuits. Here's an idea: If you slip and fall on the ice, it's your fault! It's just a fucking fact of life; Quit trying to place liability on every fucking thing that happens! We now live in a society without accidents.


No more oil, or is New Hampshire smaller than we thought? Here's an amazing quote:

"I think it is underneath the water. It's in between the bottom and the top of the water," Cepriano said.

Looks like they marched out all the rocket scientists for this one. Now, if I may posit a theory. Aliens took the oil. In order to fuel their imminent takeover. Get your gun, cause things are about to get real.

Too Obvious

Oh, is 18 to 42 unreasonable? Okay, we'll just make it 18 to 25. See how willing to compromise we are?

San Diego Fails Again

So, 19 months ago the City Council enacted a ban on the consumption of alchoholic beverages on all city beaches based on what they considered out of control and unsafe behavior a grand total of 3 days out of the year. Memorial Day, The 4th of July and Labor Day, to be precise. Now, the true motivation for the ban will likely never be clearly known, but I believe it is safe to say that it was bought and paid for by someone. The police chief even said the department didn't support banning booze on the beach before having an "inexplicable" change of heart after a closed door meeting with the council. As a result of the ban, some people decided to start throwing events called Floatopias, where thousands would get together and float on rafts in the bay and drink where the ban did not extend. To date, their have been approximately 5 of these events. The City Council, either because they feel their authority is being flouted, or for some other reason (again I do not believe things like public safety motivate these politicians) set their sights on these events. They clogged the beaches with police and lifeguards to trump up the costs to taxpayers and then reported massive garbage tsunamis (which there is not one news photo of, despite a major news presence) and cited hundreds of water rescues (not one of which was reported in the news). Yesterday, they banned these events in an "emergency" session. Whether you believe that these events and overall drinking on the beach was a problem during these few days a year or not, doesn't it seem like there should have been a whole lot of room for compromise in there? It's sad that I can't have a couple of beers on the beach on a sunny day while tossing some horseshoes and listening to a ballgame on the radio, with my friends. And it's a shame that so few people see this for what it really is: Another infringement on our liberty.

More of the Same.

Just put him out of his misery. And let that be a lesson do something like that...again(?). Seriously, how is this country ever going to survive?
