That Guy Who Sends You Emails and They're Not That Bad ...Until...

Got this from one of those guys. WTF?
For centuries, Hindu women have worn a dot on their foreheads. Most of us have naively thought this was connected with tradition or religion, but the Indian embassy in Ottawa has recently revealed the true story.

When a Hindu woman gets married, she brings a dowry into the union. On her wedding night, the husband scratches off the dot to see whether he has won a convenience store, a gas station, a donut shop, a taxi cab, or a motel in the United States . If nothing is there, he must remain in India to answer telephones and provide us with technical support.

Some people think this is funny. You should be terrified at that.

Okay, wait. Let me try.
For centuries, Christians have worshiped an idol of a man nailed to wood. Most of us have naively thought this was...

Sorry. That is enough absurdity for today. Please fill in your own silliness.

Doggie Refugees in Japan

Seriously, teh sads:


Fox & William Tucker Say "Meh" to Nuclear Danger

Ahhhhhh! When will I learn? Ten minutes of Fox News is enough to give a thinking / informed person a terrible headache.

Last night I stayed up kind of late watching coverage of the tragedy in Japan and much of that coverage was on the danger of the nuclear situation there. After a few shows and many an animated graphic, I had a solid grasp. Here's the gist:

  • Each of the 6 (!) reactors have an inner containment casing surrounding the reactor core, and an outer reactor casing.
  • 3 of the reactors were offline for maintenance and contained no reactor cores.
  • The remaining went offline with quake for safety.
  • ALL six of the reactor buildings contain spent nuclear fuel rods, cooled by water, contained only by the outer walls.
  • Because of quake damage, maintaining water levels has been a problem.
  • Due to 2 explosions and 2 fires, outer walls of 3 reactors are severely breached (like the whole roof and most of the walls of #3)
  • ALL 6 of the reactors pose varying levels of problems and concern.
  • The local utility company TEPCO has a jaded history of not quite reporting the severity of situations.

Yeah, that about sums it up.

So imagine my surprise (and gag reflex) when I switched on Fox News for less than five minutes to see Doocy talking to William Tucker, author:

I paraphrase, but his assertion was thus: "Basically one reactor has a crack in it and might vent some steam, but it'll just dissipate. We've got 6000 miles of ocean between us and there's no reason for anyone in the US to panic or even be worried."


Take all that exposition above along with the fact that the closest point between Japan and Sarah Palin's Alaska is 660 miles and, well, you wonder why Fox News viewers operate like barely-functional vegetables.

Drudge: Aahh! President's a Negro! / Haha! Doesn't Know Sports!

You know, if we have a black president and we say "PRESIDENT CHECKS OUT: FOCUS ON B-BALL BRACKETS..." that means "Lazy nigga rather watch b-ball than put in a day's work."

You know, if we want to make fun of (someone, our president) by claiming they know nothing about sports we say PREDICTABLE: Picks all No. 1 seeds for Final Four...

So our president's not only lazy, but he doesn't know sports. Haha! Loser!

Wait, that first link says he'd rather watch sports. But that second link insinuates he's not spending enough time on sports.

Maybe the racist contrarians should send out a memo to get their story straight. Maybe Mike Drudge should send one to himself.

Today in Reality...

The homosexual agenda is being pushed through anti-bullying efforts. (here)

Teachers have it easy - half days and summers off. (any RW-AM)

Jesus and/or Gaia caused the tragedy in Japan (Beck!)

Japan deserves it because of Pearl Harbor (seriously, don't look [new hobby - trolling people who tweet about Pearl Harbor - check the Twitter feed on the right!)

Just because nuclear plants in Japan are going haywire, it's still way better than those dirty solar panels and wind turbines. (Hannity)

We can control our immigration problem shooting immigrants like pigs from helecoptors (here)

Gingrich still had a bunch of affairs, Mitt still passed Romneycare, and Palin is still a moron.

Just sayin'
