Thank You. I’d Like To Kill Myself Now, Please.

Marching Powder

Another source of funds for the cash-strapped prison is corporate sponsorship. Coca-Cola provides cash, tables, chairs and umbrellas in return for the exclusive right to advertise and sell its product line.

And:

One inmate’s pet, known in the book as ‘Crack Cat’, is also addicted to smoking cocaine base.

Oh. My. God.

Go see this slideshow. Now!

This is like a totally Free Market Prison of the sort that would give Libertarians, Republicans, and other money freaks spontaneous ejaculations just imagining.

It’s also like a Bizarro World prison.

It’s totally outside the realm of all sanity.

It’s not even noon, and just reading this has sapped my strength for living…

Christ Almighty!

I’ll tell you what it makes me at the very least: Not you!

And I thank the God you denigrate for it!

It’s these bugfucked assholes again.

What Lengths Cat Owners Will Go To

NYC couple hail cab for 2,400-mile ride

NEW YORK – Betty and Bob Matas have retired and are moving to Arizona, but like many New Yorkers they don’t drive, and they don’t want their cats to travel all that way in an airliner cargo hold.

Their solution: “Hey, cabbie.”

Now where are all those cat-owning, cat-loving physicists? We need transporters, dammit!

A Call for Manners in the World of Nasty Blogs

Mr. O’Reilly and Mr. Wales talk about creating several sets of guidelines for conduct and seals of approval represented by logos. For example, anonymous writing might be acceptable in one set; in another, it would be discouraged. Under a third set of guidelines, bloggers would pledge to get a second source for any gossip or breaking news they write about.

Bloggers could then pick a set of principles and post the corresponding badge on their page, to indicate to readers what kind of behavior and dialogue they will engage in and tolerate. The whole system would be voluntary, relying on the community to police itself.


As Usual, They Get The Future All Wrong

Revolution, flashmobs, and brain chips. A grim vision of the future

Information chips implanted in the brain. Electromagnetic pulse weapons. The middle classes becoming revolutionary, taking on the role of Marx’s proletariat. The population of countries in the Middle East increasing by 132%, while Europe’s drops as fertility falls. “Flashmobs” – groups rapidly mobilised by criminal gangs or terrorists groups.

This is the world in 30 years’ time envisaged by a Ministry of Defence team responsible for painting a picture of the “future strategic context” likely to face Britain’s armed forces. It includes an “analysis of the key risks and shocks”. Rear Admiral Chris Parry, head of the MoD’s Development, Concepts & Doctrine Centre which drew up the report, describes the assessments as “probability-based, rather than predictive”.

Oh what a wonderful start to the day!!!

First, The Rude Pundit:

Ann Coulter Taken Apart By a Swedish Mathematician:

Just damned brilliant. In “The Coulter Hoax: How Ann Coulter Exposed the Intelligent Design Movement,” Peter Olofsson tears off Coulter’s legs and beats her to death with them.

Then Junkiness:

Kelly Osbourne Is Functionally Retarded

Why don’t you just kill yourself? Really. You’ll never live this down.

Ah, they get the acid flowing in my veins!
