Two Minutes Hate

"The horrible thing about the Two Minutes Hate was not that one was obliged to act a part, but, on the contrary, that it was impossible to avoid joining in. Within thirty seconds any pretence was always unnecessary. A hideous ecstasy of fear and vindictiveness, a desire to kill, to torture, to smash faces in with … Continue reading Two Minutes Hate

The Soap Opera

Maybe it's getting to be too much, dear worst-reader. I really thought I could breeze through this little (personal) experiment without any damage. If so many others can do it, I thought, so can I. Or? Binge-viewing TV though isn't turning out to be what I thought (it would be). But it is better than that … Continue reading The Soap Opera

Democracy Abortion

It never ceases to amaze (worst-moi), dear worst-reader. Examples abound in my grand and well-missed united mistakes. Sometimes finding them, though, can be difficult. That is, finding the mistakes that really stand out. Well--today we have a doozy. But is it a mistake? Here's how it goes: in the great state of NH someone had … Continue reading Democracy Abortion

Mutant Heroin

Today something new, dear worst-reader. I started this book about two weeks ago. I managed to read the first fifty pages, which, according to the on my iPad, is 20% of the book. I know. That's not much. Which also means I shouldn't write anything about this book. But. Again. This is why having … Continue reading Mutant Heroin

Kings or Churches

Ever wonder how a king is made? I mean, how does a monarchy come to be? How does it get its power? Who makes those gold calf crowns? I know. I know. History tells us that monarchs usually are rich, have even more rich friends, including lots of wannabe rich people--and then there are the rest who … Continue reading Kings or Churches

Über Reaction Sloth

The new Clinton scandal is winding down, dear worst-reader. (Sarcasm on.) Are you as disappointed as I how this has turned out? I mean, if you're a republican and/or US government hater, then this has to be a disappointment on a grand scale. Or? (Sarcasm almost off.) Nomatter. I'm sure the ideological nut-bags that have turned #americant … Continue reading Über Reaction Sloth

Female Quota

I know. It's not right of me to go around (these Interwebnets) claiming I've been able to semi-retire before fifty all on my own. I've had a little help in this deed in the form of my better half. Although we both agreed that she wouldn't be my benefactor, since I still pursue worst-writing as … Continue reading Female Quota

Mudfish Misdirected

While so many freaked-out over the recent revelations that Hillary Rodham Clinton, former US Secretary of State and possible 2016 presidential candidate (Dem), might have bent the law regarding her private ownership of government emails, worst-writer was sitting on the banks of a muddy river contemplating what need be done. Indeed. Worst-writer tends to take a … Continue reading Mudfish Misdirected

Slap In The Face

Warning: This post is NSFW. For more on the current Hillary scandal winding down go here. ¶Recent email exchange with an Old Friend got a bit heated, dear worst-reader. Thought I'd share it with you as I tried to do with similar posts here and here. The subject at hand is the recent revelation that Hillary … Continue reading Slap In The Face

Spock's Eden

My all-time favourite Star Trek is from the original series, S03E20, The Way To Eden. In it, the Enterprise picks up a group of space hippies looking for a place they call Eden. While the crew deal with the dramas of space travel, this is the first show where certain realities of Federation life are questioned. Seriously. … Continue reading Spock's Eden
