Why We Fight

Monday, December 28th, 2009

This is why we must soldier on.  This could be your home town.  Those could be your friends and family.  This is what we fight.  This is why.

So Full of Win

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2009

I know some folks will think I’m being a dick, but this story just got to me.

Sweden’s “Burning Goat”

Go on, give it a read.

Back?  Ok.  The first thing the city officials should do is check to see who gos to, or went to, the Burning Man event here in the states.  I mean come on, it’s a large effigy that is constructed from highly flammable materials, what other possible fate could this thing have.

Well, there was that one time where the legs got cut off, so I guess a hovering legless goat is one fate.  Maybe call it a goat float.

But where the WIN is, is in this sttement:

This year the city Web site offers users a chance to follow the goat’s fate via a Webcam, Twitter page and a blog — in both Swedish and English.

Really?  Twitter?  I can just see it now comming over the feed:

Latest from @SweedishBurningGoat

OMFG!!!  I’M ON FIRE YALL.  CALL THE FIRE DEPARTMENT!  HURRY!
OMFG!!! Jag er PÅ ELD YALL. KALLA Elden Avdelning! skynda på

And it’ll all be on live webcam feed too.

And then there’s this:

In 2005, the goat was burned down by two arsonists dressed up as Santa Claus and the Gingerbread Man. They were never caught.

I bet ole St. Nick was mumbling something about pegan symbols and burning witches.

2012

Sunday, December 20th, 2009

I’ve seen a fair share of disaster flicks in my time, but this one is so full a fail I don’t even know where to begin.  I’m still kind of numb from the experience.  My disbelief has been suspended so far, I’m going to have to file a missing persons report on it tomorrow.  Gee whiz.  WTF was that?

To start off, the first third, no half, is like a trip through the head of a 13 year old with a terminal case of ADD.  I started mumbling things like “yup, they’re gonna die”, and “when are they gonna just die already” at fairly random (yet oddly regular) intervals.

Most disaster movies have something epicly bad happen to a set of characters.  Then they battle adversity and finally triumph at the end.  Not 2012.  It just keeps ramping up, and ramping up, until your head assplodes.  Did the old monk really have to die, yet nearly the whole african continent got off pretty much scott free?  Really?  And Gordon?  Sure, he was kind of douche, but he made good near the end, and a had a Russian hottie in tow.  But they both had to die?  Right at the end?  Yet some Chinese construction worker made it, and he was only in the film for about 20 minutes?  Granted, that dude looked kind of like Jackie Chan, or was that Jet Li, nope, it was Bruce Lee, yeah, that dude, but still…

Then there was the arks.  Bigassed battlestar looking things (but without the pontoons).  I couldn’t help but shake my head when the (supposedly hyperintelligent) bridge crew said the hydraulics were jammed keeping the goatse door open and preventing the engines from engaging.  Yet there were no hydraulics, only large non-osha approved grind your ass to figgy pudding GEARS.  And hydraulics don’t tend to jam, but gears do, but we don’t want to sound too steampunk so we’ll say hydraulics anyway.  And these guys are going to save humanity.  We’re fucked.  If there had been real hydraulics operating the doors, they wouldn’t have jammed, and thus extend this steaming pile of cellulose another 30 minutes.  And they rammed Mt. Everest any-freakin-way.

So, if you get off watching the world (and pretty much everyone on it) die for 160 minutes, by all means dig in.

More carbon

Friday, December 11th, 2009

And while we’re on the subject of carbon, I wonder what the carbon footprint on broods like this are:

Duggar “family”

Besides personal air breathing (turning O2 into CO2), transportation, heating and entertaining, cooking, and God knows what else, what would be this gaggle’s annual carbon production?  Also take into account all the carbon produced in the production of consumables (food).  Puppy mills like this make me sick.  And to top it off, they’re “reality show stars”.  Keep squeezing ’em out baby!  Millions of potatos need moar reality TV.
