Here it is in all its truthy glory. Very similar to the Daily Show site, but in a delicious red hue.
This is one of the worst things I’ve ever seen. I can’t understand how someone could act like this. It’s really fucked up. Why is it that the West screams bloody murder when the Japanese launch whaling expeditions and then gives Canada a pass to kill 300,000 seals every year? What disgusting hypocrisy. Don’t eat [...]
Before I was too tired and couldn’t stay awake; now I’m taken on too much caffeine and I kan’t concentrate on his Critique of Pure Reason. Yes, this post is all about the pun. I crack myself up…
ONE evening, a Soviet joke relates, Stalin decided to see if he was as beloved as his cronies insisted, so went to a Moscow cinema in disguise. Sitting in the dark as the newsreels began, the tyrant was moved to tears as the audience stood—apparently unbidden—and wildly applauded his image on screen. His reverie was [...]
Damn, that’s gotta hurt…
And with a vengeance to boot: Clinton is a terrible manager of people. Coming into a campaign she had been planning for, what, two decades, she was so not ready on Day One, or even Day 300. Her White House, if we can glean anything from the campaign, would be a secretive nest of well-fed [...]
It’s close to midnight on Sunday, and I have about half on my Marxism essay that was due on Friday written. I have none of my other essay written, and I don’t even know what the title is. This one is due for tomorrow. Fortunately, I have a plan. I’m going to turn in the [...]
The would-be president appears to lack a sense of both irony and shame. As a YouTube commenter sagely enquired: “Anybody want to listen to that for 4 years?”
The make-work bias is best illustrated by a story, perhaps apocryphal, of an economist who visits China under Mao Zedong. He sees hundreds of workers building a dam with shovels. He asks: “Why don’t they use a mechanical digger?” “That would put people out of work,” replies the foreman. “Oh,” says the economist, “I thought [...]
I picked up a ‘best of’ compilation of this band yesterday. I used to think they were awesome when I was 15. The song in the (extremely low-res) video is the sadly appropriately titled ‘We Die Young’ (their singer, Layne Staley, died in 2002).

It’s not easy to write essays when the recommended sources read like this.
I have two essays due for Friday and all I’ve written is the introduction to one of them. I ought to feel about as calm as Bucket Seal. Fortunately I have a plan, although it pretty much amounts to fraud. Basically, I’m going to hand in one of the essays on Monday (along with yet [...]
I’ve rambling incoherently to a few people about this in the past week, so the time seems ripe to blog it. Imagine that you have too many things to do and too little time to do them. Not very hard to imagine, right? For instance right now I have two essays to write for Friday, [...]keep looking »
