Meanwhile, Cal-OSHA thinks that accessing a clogged roof drain with a 10-inch parapet and a scissor lift is too dangerous.


It’s true. The C students run the world.

Makes me wanna puke.

So why have I been suspended from Twitter for doing nothing?

If you haven’t noticed by now, Jack Dorsey is an asshole, and my Twitter account that I don’t use has been magically reinstated.


Update: Here’s the notification:

“Okay. It’s 1-800-Eat-Shit.”

Update II: I was sent to #TwitterGulag (several times) for supposedly breaking one or more of their vague rules, I and many others are now vulnerable.

Twitter has begun banning a large number of accounts from the website, specifically focusing on accounts that have previously been banned or have received suspensions.

Yesterday a number of Twitter users reported that their accounts were beginning to lose followers at a rapid pace. The banning seemed to apply to a multitude of accounts with little explanation as to why they were being suspended. Users took to the hashtag #TwitterPurge to voice their concerns over the issue.

Even Kenya Goes Green on Earth Day

Kenya Goes Green

[Found here. This was originally intended to be posted on “Earth Day” but our internest access was on the fritz.]

I hate this “Earth Day” garbage. Nature has been trying to kill us off for millennia and has never back-pedaled the threat. Not once. And not once has the Earth given us the common courtesy to thank us for ignoring that undeniable fact.

So in response to “Earth Day,” we turned on all our lights, cranked up the furnace, cranked down the air conditioning, turned on the humidifier and dehumidifier at the same time, and left the refrigerator door open. I plugged in the electric weed-whacker, taped the trigger, watched it dance around the back yard and dig a trench into a fresh gopher run. Judging from the color of the dirt, it actually caught one of the little furry bastards.

We washed our socks one at a time in the Kenmore with the load setting on “full.” We flushed twice to make sure a silverfish was gone forever, and we made sure that the lawn sprinklers watered the sidewalk properly.

We also burned a lot of fossil fuel by taking numerous unnecessary trips to our next-door neighbors’ house for inane chit-chat and let the car idle in their driveway for hours until the Sears DieHard was simply glowing with happy amused electricity. We even left the TV on all night and turned the TiVo on to watch it for us.

And Gaia snickered.

Abhorrence and Misplaced Animosity

Thursday, 2 August 2012

Don’t worry. Tacky Raccoons is not going to morph into a political blog, yet we’re not going to completely ignore current events either. If common sense offends you, you won’t like what we’ve posted below the break, and you can click on the image and listen to Peter Tosh instead. (more…)

Apparently, some of the “Occupy X” morons believe all U.S. Citizens who earn more than minimum wage deserve this.

My favorite brain-dead brilliance so far is this awesome interview, with this being a close second.

[P.S. Kudos to Urban Infidel for her photojournalistic ventures into the dark underbelly of OWS, and for her interview on Roger Hedgecock’s show on AM600KOGO. If anyone still thinks there’s cherry-picking going on, Zombie’s got more.]

Pre-Ignosecond

Lessee. A quick review of the photo tells me that these aren’t physics students, and that there is likely beer involved. At least four people thought that this was a good idea, and there’s a fifth one in the background egging them on who looks just like this.

Merry Christmas, America. Hope you like crap.

Thanks. Thanks a lot, you gutless clueless corrupt morons.

From CNN at 11:40PM:

Washington (CNN) — Senate Democrats braved the aftermath of a blizzard Sunday to continue their push to pass a sweeping health care bill before Christmas.

Right. They were standing in the snow, shivering, while the Republicans kept the doors shut. Phew.

Climategate Summarized

Tuesday, 1 December 2009

Norwich, England (Strutts News Services) – Since all of the raw data regarding climate change  has been finally released to the public for scrutiny after many years of cooperation by the keepers of such proprietary knowledge and research, we at Tacky Raccoons believe it is our duty to present this data in a form that is easily understandable to all sentient beings.

(Click on any graph to enlarge it.)

This first graph illustrates the Vapors Constant. It reflects the ideal average temperature of the globe, without meandering from the mean average.

This graph shows the Vapors Constant, and adds the values purported by the Bieber-Naughton studies as well as the Moholy-Nagy data.

Here we retain the Vapors Constant while showing the results of Zager & Evans/Fooser-Bieber Conundrum. Note that they diverge.

Combining all four studies and retaining the Vapors Constant, results in the graph above.

Using the Strutts-Crumbler method, and overlaying the previous data sources, the results coagulate into a recobinizable pattern.  This pattern can be simplified further.

Once the data are resolved and mushed around a bit, the patterns become intuitively obvious to the casual observer.

It’s the elusive “Hockey Puck” of global warming.

We’re doomed.
