DARVO.

Stuff like this disgusts me.

Dude got punked by his buddy [via].

THIS democrat candidate for POTUS points out a truth.


Witness: “…during a class discussion, another student asked the girl if she could kill five people in the class, who would they be? In response, the girl allegedly pointed her finger pistol.”

The 12 year old was handcuffed and arrested, charged with a felony for possessing an unloaded index finger.

[Story here, with links. Meanwhile, two students who brought REAL guns to school in the same school district were merely reprimanded.]


From the “I Was Just Holding Them For A Friend” Department:

A 27-year-old Florida woman who’d built more than 24 pipe bombs was arrested Thursday, after her parents stumbled across the incendiary devices and called police.

[Story found here, via here.]

Yeah, we had the big black bomb SWAT disposal truck in our neighborhood once. Officer said it was more than just homemade fire works.

Occasional Cortex got punked by a girl advocating eating babies, but that’s not the funny part. AOC’s non-reaction and acceptance of the premis IS.

Are you a freelance worker? Are you a tech guru? Are you self-employed? California AB5 should interest you. Employers and consultants are about to get screwed.

There’s a movement to recall California’s Governor Gavin Newsom (Nancy Pelosi’s nephew). Here’s his response as shown on the Petition:

Nah. Can’t be Newsom’s socialist policies that are crippling the State’s economy. No way. Nope. LOL

On 16 July 1969, Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and the team of Apollo 11 captivated the entire world by sending men to the moon and returning them safely to Earth in just 8 days.

When they were preparing for the moon shot, THIS was No.1 on the Billboard Charts. THIS was No.1 when they left. A month after the astronauts returned, the top hit was THIS.

Three years later, the crew of Apollo 15 placed the only art installation on the lunar surface, a memorial to those astronauts who lost their lives .


A Humble Request. Thanks to all contributors and those of you who continue to donate. The Goal wasn’t set arbitrarily, and we’ve still got a ways to go.

Photographer Fattens FLOTUS for Fourth – Reuters hasn’t changed.

Tuesday, 9 July 2019

That photo by Carlos Barrias [Reuters] of President and First Lady Trump looked a bit odd to me, because within seconds of that photo, Melania Trump dropped 30 pounds.

Reuters has a history of photojournalistic  malfeasance.


Carlos Barrias’ Reuters bio includes this gem:

“I was very moved after covering the earthquake in Haiti. I was one of the first journalists from Reuters to arrive, and I was there for about 45 days. It was long and tough. You can see human beings at their most basic instinct for survival.

It was a very weird feeling in Haiti because I know I was there doing my job, and I would like to feel that our job means something for people, but at the same time I felt powerless. What do you say when a kid comes to you and asks you for water and food, and you have nothing but a camera? I couldn’t answer that question, and I felt frustrated that I couldn’t do anything.”

[Confidential to @ReutersBarria: I don’t know you, never met you, but you’re full of sanctimonious crap. You were in Haiti for 45 days without food or water? Sure you were. Please click on this. The first 50 seconds are just for you.]

Arthur C. Clarke‘s predictions in 1974 (45 years ago). Wow.

What happens in the dishwasher stays in the dishwasher.

Fun Facts To Know And Tell 1:
President Reagan once gave a speech about manure.

Fun Facts To Know And Tell 2:
It all has to do with electrons. Mammals need iron for energy. Octopi need copper for the same reason and their is blood greenish-blue rather than red.

Fun Facts To Know And Tell 3:
WWII fighter pilot Jack C. Taylor (1922-2016) retired from the military in 1945 and started a successful car leasing business in 1948. He named it after one of the aircraft carriers he flew missions from – the USS Enterprise.

Octopus Hentai Fail. Girl got her cheek beak bit (and no, she wasn’t trying to eat it). [Update: Sources say she WAS trying to eat it.]

I didn’t like Never-Trumper Ben Shapiro before, and now I like him even less. What a snot.


Great Green Globs” as sung by Penn Gillette in 1994. It’s slightly different from what I remember:

Great big globs of greasy grimy gopher guts,
Dirty little birdy feet, mutilated monkey meat,
French fried eyeballs dipped in kerosene:
That’s what I had for lunch.

“All mixed up with all-purpose porpoise pus?” Nice addition. The differences are probably regional.

Smoking or Non-Smoking” is mortician slang for

Sometimes it’s not always what you think it is.

In 1937, The Mass-Observation project began in the UK. Some consider it the grandfather of blogging.

In 2017, a theatrical department theorized that Hillary Clinton lost to Donald Trump because she’s a woman, so they reversed the genders and re-enacted the presidential debates verbatim, including body language and gestures. Afterwards they polled the audience. Male Hillary still lost. Full story here, complete video here.

Liberal Tolerance: Note how fast she goes from hate monger to playing the victim.
