Fundie Follies: The War of the Chicken Shacks


The latest occasion for butthurt Xians is over an advert for a chicken shack called Zaxby's -- of which there are none around here, so I can't say one way or the other about their chicken.

The Sorry State of French Philosophy


This comes from the latest weekend issue of the Wall St Journal: The French Philosopher Who Loves America, about Bernard-Henri Levy. It really is a TL;DR mess of an article that takes nearly 3/4ths of all the words to finally get to the point.

Remember When...


Commercials were all about actually selling you something. The latest company to step into an enormous pile of shit they could have, and should have, known to avoid is Proctor and Gamble. Management foolishly allowed the NPCs in marketing run amok to produce a "commercial" that had NOT THING ONE about why I should choose Gillette products over, let's say, Bic disposable shavers. Like everything else produced by NPCs, this "commercial" did the opposite of what was the intention. Ratios of dislikes to likes approaching 10 : 1 at times. The same old, same old: white men are bad and toxic; negro men are the epitome of enlightenment. What could possibly go wrong? If you haven't seen it yet, this vid has the whole thing embedded within it.

Fundie Follies: Magic is Real


This comes from those Super Catholics: Vatican Catholic. No, they're not talking about Harry Potter or anything like that. They're referring to guys like David Blaine. I shit you not.

Another New Year...


...Another Stupidity Zone marathon on the "Sy"-Fy channel. Not even gonna bother. If it's a "sy"-fi channel then how come they can't have an Outer Limits marathon?

Demoralizing Controlled Opposition


I came across this You Tube channel: Black Pilled. At first, I figured the title was ironic. It's not: it's truth in advertising. This channel masquerades as an Alt-Right, alternative media channel. It is controlled opposition, an exercise in distract and deflect.

Fundie Follies: Catholics Getting in on the Action


Here is a YouTube vid from a Fr. Asperger Ripperger: Errors of Theistic Evolution. Within the first minute, we have our first problem: "My doctorate's in Philosophy". By his own admission, he isn't in the field, has no more knowledge of it than any random guy off the street. That, however, isn't gonna stop him. At least Ray "Banana Man" Comfort had at some training in science.

Two More YouTube Know-It-Alls



"In the summer of 1960, I bought a copy of Radio Electronics -- the first I'd ever seen..." That was nearly 60 years ago, we're talking about here. He mentions this was the beginning of a "ten year quest" to understand more about tube amps.

Adventures in Computing: Windows-7


I was gifted with a Dell Optiplex that's an older, 32 bit, rig that came with Windows XP. I have a certain program I need that doesn't run under anything but Windows and Mac. This program won't run on XP, so I blew that away in favor of Win-7 which got better reviews than Win-8.1, and that abominable Win-10.

Faux Snooze: Still Not Getting It


Faux Snooze is the darling of conservatives as it's the one and only MsM outlet where you might, on occasion, hear a conservative thought expressed. Here's what happened at Tucker Carlson's Washington, DC residence:

The Things You Find on You Tube


This is probably one of the most ill-concieved, poorly engineered things I have ever seen. At least with a jet ski, you get to sit down. You hit any sort of waves, and you can be thrown off that thing very easily. And, no, I'm not talking about the ocean. Lakes can have some nasty waves, and especially when you have the lake full of weekend sailors of dubious sobriety. House boats and cabin cruisers can throw some hellacious waves, especially if someone gets too close, at half power to get a better look.

Look at how long the kill switch lanyard is, and it's curled up. You could be run over, sliced and diced by the propeller, before it ever pulls out. Get the rope he's using to keep from falling off caught, and you could wind up being pulled along and the dead man's switch never cuts out because its lanyard way too long.

So never take it out on open water, you say? He said he intends to use it on "creeks". What if you hit a sand bar you didn't see? Over board you go. When people come up with stupid shit like this, do they ever think things through?

Oh, and he sells plans. Thanks, but no thanks.

SJWs: Shit Just Got Real


A few months ago, I posted this: Worst Threat to Furries Since the Burned Furs. I wrote this:

What are these asshole leftards doing in a fandom dedicated to fantasy, playing "make belief" and "dress up" for those way beyond the age when this is considered normal behavior? You would expect that Furrydom would be the farthest thing from politics. These are Communists, and to the Communist everything is politics and politics is everything. Leon Trotsky said it: "You may not be interested in politics but politics is interested in you". It was only a question of time before they infiltrated Furrydom. Free expression is never allowed anywhere they do not control. There is no sphere of live left unpolluted with their poison.

Fundie Follies: "I Molest my Daughter"


Just heard about this song by Bob Carlisle: Bob Carlisle - Butterfly Kisses (Country Version). Never heard of it before, not surprising. Here are the lyrics:

"Butterfly Kisses"

There's two things I know for sure:
She was sent here from heaven and she's daddy's little girl.
As I drop to my knees by her bed at night
She talks to Jesus and I close my eyes
and I thank god for all of the joy in my life
Oh, but most of all

For butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer;
sticking little white flowers all up in her hair;
"Walk beside the pony, Daddy, it's my first ride."
"I know the cake looks funny, Daddy, but I sure tried."
Oh, with all that I've done wrong, I must have done something right
To deserve a hug every morning And butterfly kisses at night.

Sweet 16 today
She's looking like her mama a little more everyday
One part woman, the other part girl.
To perfume and make-up from ribbons and curls
Trying her wings out in a great big world.
But I remember.....

Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer;
sticking little white flowers all up in her hair.
"You know how much I love you, Daddy,
But if you don't mind I'm only gonna kiss you on the cheek this time." (Where was he kissing her before????????)

Oh with all that I've done wrong I must have done something right
to deserve her love every morning and butterfly kisses at night.

All the precious time
Like the wind, the years go by.
Precious butterfly.
Spread your wings and fly.

She'll change her name today.
She'll make a promise and I'll give her away.
Standing in the bride-room just staring at her.
She asked me what I'm thinking and I said
"I'm not sure-I just feel like I'm losing my baby girl."
She leaned over

Gave me butterfly kisses with her mama there,
Sticking little white flowers all up in her hair
"Walk me down the aisle, Daddy-it's just about time."
"Does my wedding gown look pretty, Daddy? Daddy, don't cry"
Oh, with all that I've done wrong I must have done something right.
To deserve her love every morning and butterfly kisses

I couldn't ask God for more, man this is what love is.
I know I gotta let her go, but I'll always remember
Every hug in the morning and butterfly kisses...

This is creepy as fuck. I'm guessing this Xian singer didn't intend this meaning, not being aware that "butterfly kiss" refers to a sex act, and he's not really saying he is molesting his daughter. These Fundievangelicals aren't the sharpest stick pins in the bulletin board.
