The pledge; the pledge; the pledge. What to do about that pledge? No, I’m not about to go off on the ‘under god’ bit. More like, everything else. Growing up, I recited the Pledge of Allegiance 180 times a year, for thirteen years, from kindergarten… more »

As much as we like to believe that truth and honesty will prevail, you can't reach adulthood without realizing that it's a complete lie. I believe in part that's why we have religion, because people ~need~ to believe that someday, somehow, someway there… more »

Cryptic Procedures and Insider Bullshit

You know, I have very few things that really and truly drive me up a wall. One of them is secrets. No, I don’t pry into people’s lives to find out their deepest darkest fears. I don’t generally want to know anything about other people they don’t want me… more »

And in the Death....

Maybe Bowie could turn a poetic phrase to describe a festering hell... but me? I just work there. It's fascinating how in the span of a phone call the fate of the world can seemingly rest solely upon your shoulders, and the task you're burdened with… more »

Yes, it was tragic...

but no, it wasn't a crime. Even if it was, it isn't a crime that you get to punish. On April 3, 2003, a US tank crew fired a shell into the Palestine Hotel. The troops were under fire from Iraqi combatants and believed the cause of that fire was the… more »

A pox on him I say

Jack Thompson. The name is an expletive. There are few people on earth I find more repugnant or repulsive. I could spend full days crafting curses and vile caricatures in an attempt to encompass him. But nothing I could say would come close. What?… more »

There are times when the good of the many should mean the fucking bitch slapping of the few. When a small percentage refuses to accept that their actions can have massively negative consequences for the rest of humanity then they need to be either… more »

So yeah, a group of kids in Princeton were so distressed by the actions of their peers they decided to create a club JUST for themselves. Novel idea there. It's called "I won't fuck if you won't". Well, actually it's called something more retarded like… more »

So, tell me why it is that when someone gets promoted to a managerial position they absolutely, positively can't fire some incompetent asshole that THEY chose to hire? Sure they can fire peons beneath them. They can fucking fire them in gobs and… more »

So, if you're unhappy about the "Patriot" act don't read this. It'll only make your stomach more sour. To summarize, the DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) has asked for permission to lie to people about who they are in order to get information of… more »

Pirate versus Ninja?

Ninjas will always rule over pirates. But that is not to say that pirates do not fill a required role in society. I suppose a similar argument can be made for music, applications or movies, but my focus here today is video games. You see, for a long… more »

So the Supreme Court is revisiting the Right-to-Die issue again. My take is that the heart of the matter is that fucking Nazi Ashcroft and his ultra-orthadox-god-uber-alis principles. He's basically used his tenure in the position of Attorney General to… more »

I never usually have long to wonder about the IQ level of the person driving the car in front of me. There's a simple test - if the guy in front has to repeatedly step on the brakes when no one else in a 20 car radius does, then he's an idiot. Oh theres… more »
