Monday Roundup

For reasons that I hope I’ll explain one day, this week is going to be a bit crazy. So here are a few stories I’ve been sitting on, awaiting longer commentary:

A few weeks ago, Marvel comics unveiled an alternative Spiderwoman cover which was immediately decried as sexist because of her pose. I suspected that this criticism was largely coming from people who weren’t terribly familiar with the medium. And indeed, Maddox easily found a … Read more

Canadian bacon, pineapple, extra cheese, and your balls – to go.

Forget some fast food douchebag spitting in your food: Piss them off, and have them rub their junk on your pie:

SEPTEMBER 16—Angered that a customer called in a pizza order right before closing time, a Texas teenager allegedly rubbed his genitals on the patron’s pie as he prepared the takeout order, police allege.

Brent Bradley told cops that when he arrived at Papa Murphy’s pizza in Georgetown, a city 25 miles north of

Fake 3-D universe? (UPDATE: or worse?)

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory is about to start an unique experiment called the Holometer from which they hope to determine if we really live in a 2-D universe faking 3 dimensions or if the universe really is 3 -D.

Much like characters on a television show would not know that their seemingly 3 – D world exists only on a 2 – D screen, we could be clueless that our

SWEET!

I can’t help but rejoyce at the news that lefty dominated media is getting hammered.

The buyouts will come across the Turner division, with a couple of hundred expected

WTF?

WTF I ask again:

A hotel has been forced to send out a letter to its British guests threatening £1,400 fines for anyone caught ‘logging’ in swimming pools while on holiday.

The bizarre internet craze (that’s no one had heard of until now) has apparently become a favourite pastime for ‘boozed up Brits abroad’, according to one holiday spot in Egypt.

The owners claim participants are deliberately pooing in their crowded pools before ‘watching

More Whoppers

I know, low hanging fruit, too easy;

Was that one of those “tells” for fibbing, he mentions his beautiful wife then pulls on his ear, busted.

For being as brilliant as his supporters like to believe, why does he have such a hard time figuring out that what he says is recorder for posterity, even on the campaign trail? I mean, Bill Clinton was not stupid enough to say that if he got elected he … Read more

Spin debunked.

Today’s big headline is that “Dow drops 200-plus points; stocks negative for July“, which coming on the heels of the almost surely to be found out as bunk revelation by the desperate Donkey mouthpiece of former fame and glory claiming for the umpteenth time that the economic recovery is here, should make you wonder.

Scuttlebutt I heard is that when you really break down that 4% growth the NYT claims happened you … Read more
