and honestly I probably won’t be back. it’s too much work maintaining a blog like this for a hobby when you’ve got other things going on and don’t really feel it every day. So I’ll think about it for a little bit, but probably I’ll de-activate unless anyone would like this url with the twitter account that goes with it. If so, send me a message with what email you’d like me to sign it over to and I’ll send you a message back with the password. Ideally you would be someone who would continue with my concept that I barely started to flesh out, but if you just want the url for some other purpose that’s cool too.
Curious intent: Twitter Joke Trial protest. -
A protest has started up on twitter where people are tweeting the original message that caused a man to convicted and fined £1000, adding #IAmSpartacus at the end of it…
Crap! Robin Hood airport is closed. You’ve got a week to get your shit together, otherwise I’m blowing the airport sky high!!
Yes I fully agree this is important. Ironic Hyperbole is not only a right but a civic duty!
… at least we have the birds on our side.
These are the latest pictures of yet another Giant Metallic Spider invading the Canadian capital of Ottawa. The pictures depict the spider approaching the National Art Gallery which is home to pieces from the world over, including the Inuit sculpture used handily in self-defense by the former Prime Minister Jean Chretien. He and his wife, Ailene, used the artwork to hold a late night intruder to the PMs residence at 24 Sussex Drive at bay. The Canadians believe the robot spider may be after this special secret sculpture weapon and good-luck charm, the top armament of the Canadian military, thus rendering the country virtually defenseless.
The spider wasted little time as it attacked a group of peace delegates mercilessly. Also seen is the vain attempt by the local militia, backed by the local 237 of the Heavy Lifting Union, to lasso the robot spider using a crane with a looped cable. Unfortunately the group was unable to get the cable swinging overhead fast enough to effectively calf-rope the machine. The operator may have been suffering cataracts resulting in fuzzy vision, as a heavy aroma of medicinal marijuana emanated for the cockpit of the crane.The Robot quickly escaped and ate several passersby.

As humanity perfects itself, man becomes degraded. When everything is reduced to the mere counter-balancing of economic interests, what room will there be for virtue? When Nature has been so subjugated that she has lost all her original forms, where will that leave the plastic arts? And so on. In the mean time, things are going to get very murky — Gustave Flaubert (via pinchechango)
This Corporate real estate developer / Mafioso was spotted at an upstate NY polling place today intimidating voters into voting tea party or else he would have them “taken out”.
As a follow up to the question from our friend Glenn, If I were human or cared about the state of human affairs, I might consider the concept of a guaranteed livable income to be a premise that any government should start with, being probably the most basic goal of any society. But we’ve pretty much lost hope for you all so go ahead and elect your anti-intellectual corporate apologists.

couldthisbetherealglennbeck asked: Hey monkey, are you a socialist?
I’m not sure that I understand what I’ve said that has lead you to believe that. Are you suggesting that I was dishonest when I said that I was keen on laissez-faire. Maybe you know it by another name: “free market capitalism.” We do see lots to like in this religion and think that we can use it well to keep our dominance once we rise above the ruin that you humans are bringing on your own society. However, as a basis for government, we do not fully agree.
We are currently in the process of writing our manifesto and political doctrine, which we will publish soon and at that time you will have your answer.
Maybe I just don’t understand your use of the word “socialist.” Do you really know what this word means?

Another great reason to join our cause! We have no faith in humans to end global warming even with this imminent threat. I think we can all agree that it is much better to be off-world when this happens.
But really, what are you more afraid of, socialists increasing your taxes and imposing profit restraining environmental regulations, or giant spiders?

Have you ever considered the possibility that God might be a crazy woman? Or that John Dillinger died for you? Do you think there might be a secret technique by which the Enlightenment can literally get Something for Nothing? Could the Martians have the true religion while we Earthians are lost in superstitious darkness? Can a cup of coffee be a sacrament, and if not, why not? Does mathematics of six-dimensional space-time and philosophy of Multi-Ego Panthesitic Solipsism explain the universe? —

- No question, the Martians have the true religion. ~ghost
