Seven too many clowns at this party.

Thursday, 27 July 2017

On 26 July 2017 the US Senate voted to keep ObamaCare in effect forever.

On Wednesday, 26 July 2017, all 48 Democrats plus 7 Republicans in the Senate voted to destroy the most efficient and successful private healthcare system in the world.

Nice move, idiots.

Every totalitarian government in modern history that nationalized medical care for their constituents did it for reasons having nothing to do with medical care or economics, and everything to do with purging the population that remembers oppression and the obvious causes.

ObamaCare is no different.

Welcome to fascism, folks. They’re gonna shove it down our throats despite majority public opinion to the contrary.

Sheena – 40 Years Later

Tuesday, 25 July 2017

Okay, that’s not “The Sheena,” but close enough.

In the late 1970s and 1980s, paramedic Chris Porsz spent hours walking around Peterborough, a city in eastern England, snapping the photos of the everyday passerby.

More side-by-side photos here [via].

“Don’t worry Ma’am, I’m from the Internet.”

It’s brilliant. I’m guessing it’s a methane collector connected to a burner to provide lift to the parachute. I’d name the single-user gas-fired flying machine “Jack The Ripper.”

Hot Links from The Planet of the SuperSuckers

Sunday, 23 July 2017

Led Zeppelin‘s classic “Whole Lotta Love” was a blatant ripoff of Willie Dixon‘s song “You Need Love” but you knew that already, yah?

Early on, the band was predicted to fail “like a lead balloon,” so they adopted the name, replaced “balloon” with “zeppelin” then spelled their name “Led Zeppelin” instead of “Lead Zeppelin” to keep people from pronouncing it “leed“. Not sure if it’s true, but it sounds plausible.

The Stick – Jonathan Winters.

The Pencil – Milton Friedman.

The Axe – Ed Ames.

Double muscling is the result of a genetic mutation that causes a lack of Myostatin. It’s been observed in cattle, goats, sheep, dogs, rabbits and mice. (In rabbits, their tongues also enlarge and get really strong. Hunh.)

Double muscling occurs in humans as well.

Saturday Matinee – Bert The Turtle, Time for Sushi & Jaco Pastorious

Saturday, 22 July 2017

Bert The Turtle showed children how to survive a nuclear attack – assuming they’re far enough away from Ground Zero to have time to react. The film was shown in schools from 1952 into the 1990s.

David Lewandowski‘s “Time for Sushi” (2017) is pure disturbed weirdness. (His 2013 vid “Late For Meeting” is a classic.)

The late Jaco Pastorius was one of the greatest jazz-funk fretless bass players in modern times, IMO. [Video h/t TITH]

Have a great weekend, folks. We’ll do something just as fun tomorrow.
