Overclock Your Mind

May 1, 2007

Several years ago I came across a book called Fooled by Randomness: The Hidden Role of Chance in the Markets and Life by Nassim Nicholas Taleb.

It was breathtaking.

Abundant with original thought, it made a deep and lasting impression on me.

Just last week, I was thinking about it again, considering re-reading it, and idly wondered if the author ever did a second book.

I was just told today that he has!

The Black Swan came out last month and it promises, based on this free excerpt, to be just as exciting and intellectually stimulating as the first book.

Sony Reader Is Gaining Ground

The Sony Reader

I love new toys. It had been a while (at least two weeks) since my last one. I was sitting next to Howard Morgan at a meeting catching up and he asked me if I had gotten a Sony Reader (PRS-500) yet. Both of us are voracious readers and travelers – picture me lugging at least three books with me wherever I go.

Howard said the Sony Reader had changed his reading life. I bought one online that afternoon (Sony uses Intershop software for their ecommerce – man – I’d forgotten they still existed.)

Fag Beasts And Bloody Flags

May 1, 2007

Oh, what better way is there to draw people to a loving, merciful God than to create a spiteful, hateful music video based on the We Are The World song?

fag beasts and bloody flags

God hates the world
(you know He hates you)


your destruction draweth nigh

and all her people

I find it amusing that they sneak in a Gaia reference by referring to earth as feminine.

Yep, it’s those fuckwads again.

Get down to the video right here. (WMV and QT downloadables)

Cringely Goes Off The Fucking Deep End

May 1, 2007

Mean Time Between Failures: We need a search engine for hate.

There are Internet start-ups scouring the web by the hundreds right now looking for every imaginable form of content or commercial intention, but I’m guessing there isn’t a single spider program specifically dragging back signs of hate. Why not? Search the web for hate and vitriol and despair, do some clever parsing and analysis to figure out the where and when, then throw a mapping mashup interface on it all with the simple goal of giving school principals and baseball coaches and worried moms and dads a place to look for trouble brewing in their schools, towns or neighborhoods.

Oh yeah? Define “hate” first. Don’t give me that bullshit pornography argument, either: “I know it when I see it.” I have entire universes of bitching in this blog. You going to classify it as “hate”?

How are you going to choose between these blog posts of yesterday?

Fuck You And Your PC And Your MC
Let Him Wear The Goddammed Dress!
More Reasons To Hate My Fellow Males (Who Aren’t Men)
Everyone Knows What To Do About Everyone Else (Not That I’m Any Goddammed Exception!)
Kick. Them. Out. NOW!
Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead. Which Old Witch? The Wicked Witch! Ding Dong! The Wicked Witch Is Dead.

Which one is “hate” and which isn’t? And who is doing the judging? Christians will see #2 as hatred of their values. You “sensitive” motherfuckers will choose #1 and #5 because, according to my values, you hate this country, the West, and all the privileges that allow you sick, twisted fucks to judge others while you sip your fucking bottled aqua du jour and tsk-tsk over how “unenlightened” the rest of us are.

Well, fuck all of you Nazi bastards.

I Start The Day (And Month!) Bitching (Did You Expect Anything Else?)

May 1, 2007

Here it is, a day after I invited anyone to ask for the Kenneth Eng video — and no requests.

I see.

You snobby bastards want to sit back and not do the actual work.

Typical liberal bastards, you are.

Meanwhile, I sit back satisfied in the knowledge that out of the entire fucking internet, only I had the balls to seek out and transcribe and publish that document of pure evil.

You worthless pack of pussies.
