Stupid vs. Evil, Round eh I Lost Count

So, I hear around town that the dumb people have nominated Donald Trump as their party’s candidate.

Ha ha ha. Those dummies. Those foolish uneducated dummies. Those stupid sons and daughters of rednecks who grew up poor and went into the military instead of having their tuitions paid at UW or Evergreen or some other good white person institution of higher homogenous diversification which is filled to the brim with ex-patriots from lilly-white affluent suburbs.

Those stupid McStupidsters. When will they learn? When will they wise up? Big dummies. Hey dummies! Yeah, you … dummies. You’re dummies. Ya dumb dummies.

Alice in Chains? Yeah, Right!

When I got tickets to Alice in Chains a few weeks ago, I was excited, yet a little scared. After all, I’ve never seen a bondage show before. I’m pretty vanilla when it comes to that stuff, and I wasn’t quite sure what to expect.

When the house lights dimmed moments before the show, I didn’t know what I was personally supposed to do either. I mean, do we whip it out right away, do we watch for awhile and then do so, do we wait for the money shot? Who knew?

You can imagine my surprise when

Dear Space Aliens in the Year 5720

I see you’ve found our planet, or at least what’s left of it.

In case you were wondering, our species died off when every male age 16-67 stopped pursuing the nappy snappy, and began pursuing Pokemon. Not that anyone of our time blamed them, I mean, if hitting the luscious hoo-haa meant that you’d have to wear one of these, Pikachu would start looking pretty good to you too.

Oh sure, history has always had its share of guys with Peter Pan syndrome, but when businesses started openly encouraging the phenomenon, our extinction was virtually assured.

So sorry nobody

The Unintended Altruism of Ad-Blocking

I am a person who wears headphones for most of the day as I whack away at command-lines and code, and as a result of this, have suffered hearing damage over the years as I stumbled upon one auto-start video after another, most of which play at twice the decibel level of my music.

In a fit of self-defense, years ago, I resorted to using an ad-blocker, and I quite frankly never looked back.

I’m evil, though.

At least that’s what I’m told by numerous website-operators. Too many to count at this point.

They tell me that by using

Black Lives Matter. Affluent Lives Matter More.

On my way home from work today, I stopped to observe a Black Lives Matter rally in Westlake Park.

I looked around at all of the people, at all of the signs, and I watched and waited for indication that someone, anyone, knew what was going on in this country.

That indication did not come. When all was said and done, I could do little more than mutter “poor fools”, hang my head and walk away.

So far this year, 136 black people (overwhelmingly male) have been killed by the police. In the same period of time, 279 white

The Ruthless Victimization of LinkedIn

LinkedIn would like you to know something.

This isn’t easy for them to talk about, you see, but a few years ago, they were victimized. Oh, it was awful, it was, and LinkedIn is still suffering.

How were they victimized?

Well, you see, after they used every less-than-honest trick in the book to procure your private information, they turned around and stored that private information in an insecure manner, which in turn caused your data to be stolen, and then sold on the black market.

MY GOD CAN THIS COMPANY EVER GET A BREAK??!!! SOMEBODY THINK OF LINKEDIN! WON’T

Everything’s Relative

Black folks have slavery.

Poor whites have slavery as well as massive de-humanizing propaganda, bigotry campaigns, and a calculated effort by the elite to drive down their incomes and living standards.

For Jews, it was The Holocaust.

Asians have internment.

What about affluent white women, though? Now that they graduate from college more often, live longer, wield greater political power, and control a greater percentage of consumer spending than any other group, what claim to oppression do they hold today?

Well, I don’t know about your neck of the woods, but in Seattle, they’ve got “hearing opinions they don’t agree

The Wildlife of South Lake Union

Having lived in the city for most of my life, I haven’t had the opportunity to shoot much wildlife.

Sure, I’ve gotten the odd shot of an orca in Elliott Bay, not to mention several photos of the Wild Bremelo in its native habitat. Oh, and who can forget my footage from the midst of the Canadian Thug Goose invasion?

So, sure, I’ve gotten some “wildlife” footage, but when it comes to photography, most of my stuff trends toward the urban.

This being the case, when I saw a Blue Heron hanging out with a Big Ass Turtle

Spotted: The Outrage Machine’s “Check Engine” Light

The Outrage Machine, perhaps the best example of modern American craftsmanship there is, has really been churning along the past couple of years, and it’s been doing so, well past the red line.

Alas, it seems to be sputtering a bit, as the latest creation of said machine falls well short of what most people would generally consider plausible. Not that this matters in the least. Eh, read it for yourself.

 

Did you get all of that?

Woman denied boarding, but she wasn’t really denied boarding, and, well, I see what’s going on here. The Outrage Machine. Something’s
