Signs of the times

Note to the hyperventilating media: It's a contrail for fuck's sake.


What is wrong with our culture anyway? I mean if it's not 9/11 was an inside job, it's Birthers and flouride is a black helicoptah means to turn us all into automatons.


What the actual fuck? Occam's razor people.


I dunno, guy, I think we should get Shaughnessy on the friggin case. Maybe it's a missile, maybe it's a contrail or maybe, maybe... It's a Sign of the Bambino!


Oh, it's a sign alright...


No playoffs, waning fan interest, a brand new soccer team, a perilous free agent season...

It's the Four Horsemen of the Lucchinocalypse!!!!!



Occam's Razor was not in effect with the AL Gold Glove awards, unless a popularity contest is the simplest explanation for the choices.

Right, that's a perfect example of Occam's razor...

The simplest explanation is that the voters do not consider stats when casting their votes.

Curious that this occurs at a time Obama is in Indonesia renewing his driver's license.


Now that was funny!

//It's the Four Horsemen of the Lucchinocalypse//

Repent bitches!!

My wife's explanation for why people subscribe to conspiracy theories is that they have such a comfortable environment with no true existential threats to their way of life that when they encounter something truly horrific and evil (like 9/11), they can't conceive of how that happens without some sort of Goldbergian chain of connections to what is normal and mechanical (the government). I'm not sure how that works for birthers.

da kine - dead on. and it also applies to birthers thusly: there is a certain slice of the population that has never had any threat to their way of life and cant conceive of something truly horrific and evil like (hand over mouth, whisper) a liberal black president, so they create the conspiracy to help cope with the fact that a guy they dont like got elected. Applies to hanging chads and white conservative presidents too.

A friend summed it up well for me... Blazing Saddles, new sheriff coming to town... "Hey, the sheriff is a nigger!"

Wait, I thought Obama was a "moderate" and a "pragmatist"?

He's a liberal?

What the fuck is up with that?


and Occam's razor went dull when 24 hr cable news came of age. Simple dont fill the program schedule. Simple also means Jesse Ventura would be out of a job - wait he is - because he was on to something!!

sorry to destroy your dream h.b.:)

Heh. Blazing Saddles.

" 'scuse me while I whip this out..."

As we make fun here, the serious conspiracy nutjobs are hard at work in HI.

But wait, in Blazing Saddles, didn't the black sheriff (with Gene Wilder's help) actually institute a Goldbergian plan to ultimately blow up the "buildings" in town in order to stop the terrorists by force??? AAANNNDD Mel Brooks is a JEW!!

I think the take-away message here is that it's really too bad that the 2010 election didn't just end in a pie fight in a DC cafeteria.

Rosie O'Donnell is in HI trying to prove that steel doesn't melt?

This day just gets crazier and crazier.

(BTW are you and Rose related? LOL)

HB, that's two "LOL"s in one thread. If you aren't actually laughing out loud, I'm going to have to put you in social media detention.

Shut up, you Teutonic twat!

Last time I was in Boston (while visiting home from Africa, ferchrissakes) I was listening to Howie Carr. There was a fill-in host who was all about "look, I'm not a tinfoil hat wearing dude, but isn't is weird about Obama's birth certificate?" I actually called up (as someone who thinks Obama is probably the worst president in my life) and told him that even if Obama was born in Indonesia or Kenya or wherever, he is still a natural-born citizen since his mother is a US citizen. The next caller already had an answer, something about his mom was only 17 when she had him, so she couldn't vote, so he'd have to be born in the US for it to count FOR HIM. I lost track with the amount of derp flowing over the airwaves.

His mom was 17 and she was impregnated by the drunk, cocaine addicted George W. Bush while he was AWOL from the National Guard!!!!!!!!

For the record, I am not aware of any genetic connection between me and any famous (or infamous) O'Donnell!

I got some groceries, some peanut butter, to last a couple of days.

Speaking of conspiracies, now the FDA is trying to tell us that smoking is bad for you.

What will these chuckleheads think of next?

Anybody got a light?

We got some real smart folks workin at that FDA department, don't cha think? Maybe next they'll do a study to see if alcohol makes you drunk...

And big tip 'o the bowler hat to old "Saturn Balls" himself on winning his first Gold Glove Award.

Hope it gets you a bonus Bronson.

Rob: Switching from Blazing Saddles to Thank You for Smoking: If we want to talk numbers, how about the millions of people dying of heart attacks? Perhaps Vermont Cheddar should come with a skull and crossbones.

Also, with all this talk yesterday about Jeter's legacy value and all that crap, why aren't we hearing the same from the Sox about keeping Tek as a back up for a year or two?

Pro Hitter - you can't compare the two. After all, that obesity conspiracy has it's roots in a gladular problem. You know, the gland between people's noses and their (double) chins.

And re: Tek. Yep, I agree. He's a True Sox(tm).

Natalie and pseudo must be setting fires to the Tory building. To think of it, $100 for university tuition, what's next cold beer?

New good posts you wrote,like them so much,better I hope.and good luck your life,make more good friends and enjoy yourself.thanks your posts to us.

@sonoma, I get why they're doing it. But I went to university in the states and paid for it on my own to the tune of 12-15k a year (this was AFTER scholarship and loans and whatnot and also while working 3 jobs at a couple points), so often I just want to say suck it up and quit whining.

@Rob: Ha, I know. I'm neither a smoker or a fatso, though I can eat cheese by the block. That's a great exchange in that movie, though.
