How the fuck
could something like this happen?
We all know perfectly well how Notre Dame was built. The whole roof required some 82 acres of trees to construct -- damn near a whole forest, and they have long called it exactly that: "The Forest".
We also know how hot, and more importantly, how dry attics get. Parts of that roof have been drying for over 800 summers, while the rest for about 150. Is it any wonder it lit up like the space shuttle?
Why wasn't a fire detection/suppression system installed up there? Hellsamatter with people these days? Is there some sort of Catholic dogma I haven't hard about that forbids common sense precautions like lightening rods and fire suppression? It wouldn't've happened if the church's attic was flooded with sulphur hexaflouride at the first sign of fire: no oxygen, no fire. It isn't rocket science we're talking about.
Stupid people and assholes: why the rest of us can't have nice things. Current Mood: pissed off

|Fundie Follies: The Original Mr. Blackboard
If you've ever seen Glenn Beck, you're well aware that he loves drawing on black boards. Lefties have long made fun of him for this. Beck wasn't the first to do this. Have a look at this asshole.( Collapse ) Current Mood: amused

|Fundie Follies: Xians Crowing
This came to my attention via e-mail: A Bill Just Passed in Kentucky Will Trigger Atheists Everywhere
"Well, a new law just passed in Kentucky which puts God back in the public sphere in a big way. And its guaranteed to trigger atheists everywhere on a whole new level".
Actually, file this away in the Who the Hell Cares folder.
As reported by the AP, The Republican-dominated chamber approved House Bill 46 on Wednesday by a vote of 72-25. It would require public schools to display the national motto in a prominent location beginning with the 2019-20 school year.
And the national motto is of course, In God We Trust.
This is the "big way"? Really? How about that motto? If anyone should be opposed, it's not Atheists.
In 1956, the nation was suffering through the height of the cold war, and the McCarthy anti-communist witch hunt. Partly in reaction to these factors, the 84th Congress passed a joint resolution to replace the existing motto with "In God we Trust." The president signed the resolution into law on 1956-JUL-30. The change was partly motivated by a desire to differentiate between communism, which promotes Atheism, and Western capitalistic democracies, which were at least nominally Christian. The phrase "Atheistic Communists" has been repeated so many times that the public has linked Atheism with communism; the two are often considered synonymous. Many consider Atheism as unpatriotic and un-American as is communism. The new motto was first used on paper money in 1957, when it was added to the one-dollar silver certificate. By 1966, "In God we Trust" was added to all paper money, from $1 to $100 denominations.
-- Clicky (Emphasis mine)
Changing the nat'l motto from "E pluribus unum
" (what it had been from the foundation of the United States) to "In God we Trust" was a deliberate act of ceremonial magick to create a talisman to ward off Godlesscommunism™ -- to become the "crucifix" to the Soviet "Dracula". In a word: Congressional witchcraft.
Remind me again what the Bible says about witchcraft. Current Mood: amused

|On And On And On...
Lately, there has been a real advertising push for This Outfit
. Every day, I hear at least one radio advert. I can find out nothing
about cost. However, take a look At This
: if you need to ask "How much?" I guarantee you: you can't afford. A stay here is going to cost you at least five figures. What do you get for your money?( Collapse ) Current Mood: pensive

|And Another YouTube Know-It-All
The latest YouTube know-it-all is RampagePoker
. This series of vids is produced by a self-admitted college boy who plays for some extra money. He should make up his damn mind: is he going to take his studies seriously or is he going to take Poker seriously. He can't do both, and it shows.( Collapse ) Current Mood: amused

|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.( Collapse ) Current Mood: amused

|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.( Collapse ) Current Mood: pensive

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.( Collapse ) Current Mood: amused

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.( Collapse ) Current Mood: amused
|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

|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.( Collapse ) Current Mood: pensive

|Fundie Follies: Catholics Getting in on the Action
Here is a YouTube vid from a Fr.
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.( Collapse ) Current Mood: amused
