Supreme Commander 2

Posted on 27 February 2010 by Thraxxus

If you have a good computer, gamer quality, and you don’t buy this game then you need to be smothered with a pot bellied pig. Supreme Commander was amazing, and this makes that look terrible. Realize that this is IN GAME GRAPHICS. Star Craft who? Blizzard what? Sheah whatever.

Caravaggio Vindicated!?!?

Posted on 26 February 2010 by Thraxxus

Apparently a tiny iceberg the size of Luxembourg broke off a glacier and fell into the ocean. The wee iceberg is only 965 square miles. Best part? It is already altering some ocean currents. Realize what that means. Cue Jeopardy music. Yes! OCEAN CURRENT IS BEING AFFECTED – and where one current is affected so are those that it affects normally. How did this happen? Apparently yet another giant iceberg hit the glacier and caused it to shatter off this little guy. So now there are two giant icebergs floating about causing havoc to our oceans. No big deal.

None of this is good news.

A Bar in Kentucky

Posted on 25 February 2010 by Thraxxus

A guy walks into a bar in Kentucky and orders a white wine. All the hillbillies sitting around the bar look up, expecting to see some pitiful Yankee from the north.

The bartender says, “You ain’t from around here, are ya?”

The guy says, “No, I’m from Ontario, Canada.”

The bartender says, “What do you do in Ontario,Canada?”

The guy says, “I’m a taxidermist.”

The bartender says, “A taxidermist? What in tarnation is a taxidermist? Do you drive a taxi?”

“No, a taxidermist doesn’t drive a taxi. I mount animals.”

The bartender grins and hollers, “It’s okay boys. He’s one of us.”

This Required Research?

Posted on 24 February 2010 by Thraxxus

According to MSNBC.com :

“Watching a curvaceous woman can feel like a reward in the brain of men, much as drinking alcohol or taking drugs might, research now reveals.”

Ummm… DUH. All you really had to do was ask any man on the planet this and he would have told you – did you really need to dedicate research funds towards that? What a waste of money.

Why not just say “THIS JUST IN! Men Like Women! Well some do.”

The article goes on further to state:

“To explore the roots of this behavior, researchers had 14 men, average age 25, rate how attractive they found pictures of the naked derrieres of seven women before and after cosmetic surgery that gave them more shapely hips. These operations did not reduce weight but just redistributed it, by implanting fat harvested from the waists into the buttocks.” LOL!

Congrats.

Land of the Free

Posted on 23 February 2010 by scanjack

Introduction to the Articles of Freedom – It is no surprise to me that the Constitution and the Bill of Rights are not taught in our schools any more. Nor does it surprise me that what is taught about the founding fathers is primarily that they were the first terrorists in North America.

Curling

Posted on 23 February 2010 by Thraxxus

As I may have referenced before some friends of mine and I were watching Curling the other day and were totally fascinated however not one of us had any clue what was going on. Being men we of course had loads of comments regarding the game even when we had no idea what the rules really are. I looked them up and here a long with a history of the game. I have to say that I am amazed that people made a game out of sliding stones across ice. Poverty is an amazing thing as well as the human ability to fill time with something completely mindless.

Needless to say I am a fan.

Not Your Grandmother’s Figure Skating

Posted on 22 February 2010 by Thraxxus

The Olympics are here in case you didn’t know. The funny thing I have noticed is how often people are pointing out just how hot everyone is – even the Curling Teams. So we did a quick lookup and found ANNA SEMENOVICH – easily the hottest figure skater to ever walk the ice. Why do I choose to talk about this? Consider what out culture has become – even in the Olympics, an event dedicated to sports of all kinds (this one happens to be the winter Olympics) the Main Stream Media on almost all levels loves to point out how hot people are. What if we did that in other sports events as well? Maybe in the office, where it has actually become borderline illegal to do so?

Football

“Jackson goes deep to Weatherspoon.. Weatherspoon has the ball! HE COULD GO ALL THE WAY! And look at his ass while he runs – man that is a nice ass!” Just doesn’t work does it?

The Office

“Janet I need you to get these reports done by 4 pm, also that skirt makes your ass look like two puppies fighting under a blanket. I mean I would tear in that ass like a bag of Lays Potato Chips. See you at 4.” Yeah – lawsuit so fast your head would spin, but on television? Naw – its cool.

Olympics

“The USA Women’s Curling team is doing very well this year, which is surprising considering how hot they all are. Did you know that they came out with a Women of Curling calendar with nudes?!?! I always did love Curling!” Really?

The Financial Truth is Bleak

Posted on 21 February 2010 by Thraxxus

According to MSNBC.com, as well as many other sources too numerous to name, the economy isn’t quite what you have been told by most Main Stream Media. MSNBC’s article talks about how millions of people are going to be out of work for as long as 5 years. Think about that.

Another nice topic you may not know about is that of the Commercial Real Estate Industry being on the brink of total ruin. What does that mean? The bank problems of last year are like losing 5 dollars on your Disneyland trip to the horror that a crash of the Commercial Real Estate Industry will bring – MANY banks will DIE. If the USA government, or many others, try to step in and save those banks with bailout cash as they did last time then they too will falter.

And what of the USA government? Several TRILLION in debt. How much exactly? Some economists have it as high as 17 Trillion. There is a magical number that we are approaching regarding debt to income ratio, and we are almost at the no going back stage.

Prepare yourselves for an economic apocalypse, which is most likely what the Mayans were really talking about – many economists put the end of the Earth economic crash, oddly enough, in 2012 – same year the Mayans predicted Armageddon. Irony is an evil bitch.

Newsweek Agrees with Blinkinblogs

Posted on 21 February 2010 by Thraxxus

It isn’t that they actually called us out, or even referenced us, but they are now posting things on Newsweek that Blinkinblogs brought up before and was dismissed as, well, crazy. We covered a long time ago how your cell phone can be used against you, and can be done so without your knowledge. According to this Newsweek article not only is it possible to track you with your cell phone, but it is actually already being done.

Big brother you say? NO, that is UN POSSIBLE! Fascism? NEVER! Oh wait.

Did you know that Space Aliens laugh at us?

Posted on 18 February 2010 by Caravaggio

As reported initially by the BBC and then re-printed by Fox News:

[The embattled ex-head of the research center at the heart of the Climate-gate scandal dropped a bombshell over the weekend, admitting in an interview with the BBC that there has been no global warming over the past 15 years.
Phil Jones, former head of the Climatic Research Unit of the University of East Anglia, made a number of eye-popping statements to the BBC’s climate reporter on Sunday. Data from CRU, where Jones was the chief scientist, is key evidence behind the claim that the growth of cities (which are warmer than countryside) isn’t a factor in global warming and was cited by the U.N.’s climate science body to bolster statements about rapid global warming in recent decades.

In response to the question, “do you agree that from 1995 to the present there has been no statistically significant global warming?”, Jones said yes, adding that the average increase of 0.12C per year over that time period “is quite close to the significance level. Achieving statistical significance in scientific terms is much more likely for longer periods, and much less likely for shorter periods.”

Jones is nevertheless 100% confident that the climate has warmed, he stated, admitting that the Climate-gate scandal has undermined public confidence in science. Jones also allowed for the possibility that the world as a whole was warmer in medieval times than it is today — a concession that may also undermine theories that global warming is caused by man.
In addition, Jones admitted that an overall lack of organization, and his poor record keeping and office-tidying skills, had contributed to his reluctance to share data with critics, which he regretted.

“To say when you’re the record keeper for the globe’s temperature that you’re not a good record keeper, well, that’s going to come back to haunt you for a long, long time,” Pat Michaels.of the Cato Institute, a public-policy think tank, told Fox News.]

—————————————

In summation, we are doomed but in a very Dramatic Comedy kind of way. Even single-celled lifeforms in distant galaxies make fun of our cumulative stupidity. It is a relevant, solid point that warming is taking place. Insignificant aberrations (e.g.; extraction of indicators pointing to heat increases from growing cities and/or a lack of implicit warming since 1995) do little to undermine the primary fact defining that global temperatures are trending on a solid statistical basis.

It matters not if man unleashes the cited ever-quickening tempo with the carbon cycle… what only matters is gaining a consensus that this cycle is: 1) for real and is taking place, and 2) is increasing in tempo as a traceable factor within a temporal scale (obviously beyond the average human’s ability to cognitively understand).

Let us now stop tongue-wagging about the “who is to blame” and focus on mediation strategies for when it trips a point of no return — where the cascading effects of temperature augmentation caused via lowering albedo triggered by a permanent thaw which also increases the release of methane, carbon dioxide and a host of other gases further increasing the tempo of the cascading effects. This scenario is what causes a run-away situation where there can be no solution offered.

On a final note: I believe the leaders of the Climatic Research Unit of the University of East Anglia should be prosecuted as criminals and hanged publically. Through they’re own admitted ignorance, they’ve endangered the lives of my offspring and my offspring’s offspring.

Breaking the Cycle

Posted on 17 February 2010 by Caravaggio

This morning I felt compelled to chip away at a specific tier within the awe-inspiring expanse of human ignorance as it applies to natural ecosystem equilibrium. It is critical to break the cycle of illogical fear producing legislation that then justifies the illogical fear. The same ignorance is taken with an array of other top-tier predators… from sharks, lions, tigers, bears to even low-pathogenic viruses that are routinely killed at the expense of allowing high pathogenic super-viruses the darwinian space to thrive.

If you feel compelled… the email address is listed below.

to: mitch.holmes@house.ks.gov
date: Wed, Feb 17, 2010 at 8:21 AM
subject: Mountain Lions in Kansas

Honorable State Senator Holmes –
Although your current effort to legalize the hunting of the scant numbers of Mountain Lions in Kansas is understood as a reaction to constituent requests, it still remains bewildering how an educated man, such as yourself, wouldn’t attempt to discuss options with your voter base first. The ecosystem has been out of balance since ranchers and farmers killed off natural predators in the late 19th century through pure ignorance triggered by unsubstantiated fear. Now as nature regains a degree of equilibrium, you bend to knee-jerk reactions without any supporting evidence presented – other than pure ignorance triggered by unsubstantiated fear. Why should the state endure another round of illogical extermination? Why should nature endure another two centuries of imbalance?

Again, this email is being sent with full knowledge of why you’re proposing a bill to hunt the meager few Mountain Lions living in Kansas. However, might you be reacting in a similar manner to your constituency — the majority of which remain rather uneducated as to the true degree of danger posed from these rather reclusive animals?

The “thinking people” of Kansas, the Midwest, and the rest of the country have their eyes upon you, Senator.

Sincerely,
(Caravaggio)

The World According to Thraxxus

Posted on 17 February 2010 by Thraxxus

A bit on great things. There is an inherent problem that I have discovered during my term served in this reality and it is this: whenever you have the best of something it diminishes everything else in that category to dust. My example this morning is the glorious beef jerky that a dear friend’s retired 5 star chef father makes but once a year. I lack the adjectives to properly describe the euphoria that one experiences devouring even the smallest piece of the bovine based Ambrosia provided by this culinary genius. What is my problem? I love beef jerky in general, however whenever I eat this beef jerky it reminds how bad all other store bought jerky is and thus ruins beef jerky for me all over again.

This is true for many things. Hamburgers are a great example. Each and every day millions of Americans eat crap hamburgers at fast food joints all across our nation. They pound it down along with the tasteless greasy fries coated in pretend salt and are convinced that they are eating good food. However if you take a normal person and have them eat a real hamburger, say made from buffalo for instance like the one found at Ted’s Montana Grill, they quickly come to realize that they have been eating crap all along. Again, another category of food destroyed for that person.

This really applies to all things if you think about it. Sex? Great sex ruins normal sex. Cars. You could love your car, then sit in a top end Lexus or Mercedes and quickly look at your own car with disdain. Houses. Anything really. The old saying applies “There is such a thing as too much of a good thing.” or in this instance “There is such a thing as too good of anything.”

I will sit and enjoy by jerky while it lasts knowing full and well that jerky will be ruined for me yet again for at least a year. Le Sigh.

Snow Laws

Posted on 12 February 2010 by Thraxxus

Apparently there is a law in NY City that 4 hours after the snow has stopped falling that you must have your sidewalk clear of snow else you are fined $150 bucks – best part is that the Garbage Men of the city are the ones that are empowered to issue those tickets. I am not sure why I found this insanely funny, but really… SERIOUSLY? The questions that come to mind are staggering – for instance? What if the snow stops falling at 2 am? Am I to go outside and shovel the snow before 6 am? Here as an article on the topic from way back in 1996. Classic.

Very wise, insightful words…

Posted on 09 February 2010 by Caravaggio

“I AM A REALIST. I AM A CONSERVATIVE realist. I cling to logic, morality, and history, and I apply them consistently. I find no reason not to apply them; after all, if something is true, then is it not wise to give it proper credence? It is not only proper, but it is also in our best interest. To know the truth leads to a more potent and effective solution. Often falsities plague society with the equally false premise that they give us effective solutions, but in all actuality they hurt society.”

—————————————————————————————————————
When I first read these words, I felt this was a very stoic, extremely articulate manner in which to present practicalities applicable to our present-day circumstances. What floored me was in researching the author…

Jonathan Krohn is a columnist, author, speaker, and political analyst. He previously has been a weekly guest columnist for Human Events (www.HumanEvents.com).

Oh, what they left off was that Jonny is 14 years old.
