Next month the U.S. Supreme Court will hear argument about the obscene government overreach that is the individual mandate in President Obama’s health care law. Yet physical intrusion by government into the vagina of a pregnant woman is so urgently needed that the woman herself should be forced to pay for the privilege.

We just had an earthquake here! All of a sudden, everything started shaking a little, and I thought it was my cold medicine until everyone else started to comment on it too. Apparently there was a magnitude 5.8 quake in VA:

One of my coworkers is just out of college and is a little naive. I had the following IM conversation with her and I have to record it for posterity.

Her: so i'm having [other coworker] retrieve an article for me that i need and for some reason one of the security things is that a phd number needs to be typed in so [he] suggested i ask you for yours...its a free article but one of the security questions is asking for a phd number for some reason

Me: I think he is pulling your leg
I don't know what a PhD number is and I certainly don't have one

Her: stupid [person] didnt sound like a real thing

Me: it's not like I got a serial number tattooed on my ass after I defended

Her: haha

Bristol Palin on 'Dancing with the Stars' angers Wisconsin man Steven Cowan, takes gun to television

[Steven J. Cowan] was arrested after he allegedly became so angry watching Bristol Palin on "Dancing with the Stars"that he fired off his shotgun at his television, leading to a 15-hour standoff with state police.

According to the criminal complaint, posted by The Smoking Gun, Cowan and his wife, Janice, were watching the show Monday evening when Cowan jumped and swore as the former vice-presidential candidate's daughter shimmied across the stage.

He said something to the effect of "the ----ing politics."

The complaint added, "Steven was upset that a political figure's daughter was dancing on this particular show when Steven did not think she was a good dancer."

I can understand that.

I've been following the story about the Rutgers student who committed suicide after his roommate streamed video of him having sex with another male to the Internet. It makes me very sad and angry, because I simply cannot fathom what would possess someone to do such a thing. Okay, maybe you don't like your roommate, but 1. that does not excuse anything 2. you are not alone in that experience 3. you can get a new roommate if you are really that offended by his sexual preference. What infuriates me is the possibility that the two students who recorded the encounter thought that perhaps what they were doing was funny.

Fucking barrel of laughs, you two. Congratulations, you killed someone.

Bodily Fluid Cleanups Inspire "Dirty Dancing" Ban

Another local high school is trying to ban “dirty dancing” at proms. Why? There seems to be problem with a dance in which students cluster in tight groups, preventing adults from seeing what’s going on in the middle.

So what’s going on in the middle?

"The custodial staff were... cleaning bodily fluids off the floor," Susan Nolen, copresident of the Parent Teacher Group and mother of two students at Penncrest High School told the Inquirer.

1. That's just nasty.

2. This kind of thing definitely didn't happen at my high school!

When I was a kid, I had an Atari. I didn't have too many games for it, but my parents would get me a new game as a gift from time to time. It seems that they had a knack for picking some winners. Not only did I have a copy of E. T., which is widely considered one of the worst and most disastrous games ever made, but I also had a copy of Journey Escape, which was featured in this Mental Floss list of the 10 Most Bizarre Games Ever Made. As I had no idea who the band Journey was at the time I got the cart, and the gameplay was completely mystifying, this was not one of my favorites.

All I can say is that the games in question must have been on sale.

Meet Michele Bachmann!

An excerpt from the article:

Bachmann later condemned those who had made Holocaust references at the rally. But even a cursory glance at her career reveals that this rising star has long trafficked in some extreme positions. In October last year Bachmann called some of her fellow congressmen anti-American. She has said Obama holds socialist views. She has attacked global warming by saying that carbon dioxide emissions are a natural part of the atmosphere. "Carbon dioxide is not a harmful gas, it is a harmless gas," she said. She has fed into fears of a violent backlash against Obama by saying that "having a revolution every now and then is a good thing". She has spoken of "gangster government" in a speech viewed more than two million times on the internet. She has dubbed Obama's plans to increase AmeriCorps – a government volunteer service group – as a plan to forcibly indoctrinate young people. "I believe there is a very strong chance that we will see young people put into mandatory service... there are provisions for what I would call re-education camps for young people," she told an interviewer. Her language in opposing healthcare reform has been bloodcurdling. At a recent event in Colorado she told her audience: "What we have to do today is make a covenant, to slit our wrists, be blood brothers on this thing. This will not pass. We will do whatever it takes to make sure this doesn't pass." She is also extremely socially conservative, strongly opposing abortion and gay marriage, and deeply religious. She has described herself as a "fool for Christ".

Woman accused of trying to sell "gothic kittens": Pet groomer marketed felines with ear, neck and tail piercings on eBay

I once thought that nutters who try to make their pets "vegan" were the worst (HELLO PEOPLE, DOGS AND CATS ARE CARNIVORES, GET OVER IT) but this leaves me speechless. Why would you ever do that to a cat? What is WRONG with you?

The worst part is that I'm sure she had eager buyers. Fuck all of you.

Today is Crazy People Day. One of my coworkers sent me this gem:


This chick is one dedicated loon. She's screening comments (no surprise there), and it's such a concentrated form of crazy that I'm having trouble believing she isn't a troll.

ETA: It's pretty obvious she's schizophrenic. Now I feel sorry for her.

Coworker also sent this:

Further proof that George Lucas is completely barking mad:
Die Hard scribe Jeb Stuart got the boulder rolling with an early-'90s script titled Indiana Jones and the Saucer Men From Mars, a stab at addressing one of Lucas' central ideas. It made sense, Lucas argued, for the first three Indy movies to imitate 1930s and '40s adventure serials, as the stories were set in that period. But with Indy older, and the setting pushed to the '50s, the genre should also switch to the sort of trope you'd find only in that later era: namely, aliens invading Earth in spaceships with the military in hot pursuit. Or so Lucas argued, to raspberries from his collaborators. ''Harrison said, 'No way am I being in a Steve Spielberg movie like that,''' recalls Lucas. ''And Steven said, 'I don't know, I don't know, I don't know.'''

Clinton touts support from 'white Americans'

"I have a much broader base to build a winning coalition on," she said in an interview with USA TODAY. As evidence, Clinton cited an Associated Press article "that found how Sen. Obama's support among working, hard-working Americans, white Americans, is weakening again, and how whites in both states who had not completed college were supporting me."

Madame Clinton, I assure you that you don't have my white American support. Perhaps I am too educated for your elite cadre of supporters.

Shit like this makes me feel physically ill.
