Of all the masterful arguments presented by Alan Shore (James Spader) in the American TV show Boston Legal, his argument in front of the Supreme Court in S04E17 has to be one of the best. Btw, I've been binge-watching the show for the past two weeks, as I've done here and here with other shows. Although I'm … Continue reading Who Are You People
There is a scene in the satirical movie "Schtonk" where it's said that Adolf Hitler claimed in his diaries that he invented the Käfer. You know, that cute little German car known as the beetle or bug--not the new plastic krapp copy they've got now. And not only did he invent the original bug, but he … Continue reading Und Der Fährt Immer Noch
It goes something like this. After worst-writing for a few hours, in a rush, I got around to getting some chores done. The chores are thus: buy fresh meat and wine for the evening. Pick some veggies for the pan. Dress the kitchen properly so she's prepared for my cooking. Start drinking with a cold beer … Continue reading A Spot
Trillions of dollars have been spent. Habeas Corpus has been suspended--along with Bill of Rights. The government has the right to spy on you. You can be put on a no-fly list. We now have a government institution named homeland security. We also have a patriot act that cannot be dissolved which guarantees all the above. Seriously. Can … Continue reading The Bigot Meter
https://youtu.be/pcPIvFUEMbQ?t=2m50s What's to be done when everything is leveraged? Where does one go when margins are so thin? How do you get credit when all there is is debt? How do you get water from a rock? The answer to these and many other questions, dear worst-reader, is simple. You mis-manage your company like no … Continue reading Buffoons Ticking On And On And On
Had a dream the other night. I think. Even though I can't draw worth a hoot, my best shot at an image of the dream is above. This dream started in the middle of a journey that begins at a red x (bottom left corner of the page). I think the journey was to the Red Sea … Continue reading Doodle Of A Dream
There is no doubt that combinations like this will prevail. Look at the place and the history that makes them--these combinations. First, we have Matt Damon running his trap when he shouldn't--securing his white supremacy position in Hollywood and playing the fantasy meritocracy card (see lampshade link below). Then we have The Donald teaming up with … Continue reading Combinations Prevail
A bit more than a rant this morn, dear worst-reader. Perhaps this is a plea. A plea for mercy and the life of my dog. To begin, above is a letter that I recently received from the property administrator of our flat regarding my dog. Here is a translation of the red enclosed area: "Unfortunately, after numerous warnings, you have … Continue reading Who Let The Dogs Out
No. Seriously. Here's a question for ya, which is also kinda paraphrasing (the fabulous) Ronda Rousey: In an all-out, open fight, I bet Hillary Clinton would kick Edward Snowdens ass. Well, dear worst-reader, there you have it. The big Ed, the Snow(ball)den, has come out to tell us--us measly muggle-born non-techies--that what Hillary did with her private … Continue reading The What And Not The How
Thoughts this morn about Dostoyevsky's Notes From Underground. I've been enjoying the taste, feel and smell of this 1972 paperback for the past few weeks. I think I acquired it while visiting London in 1995. Obviously it's not dealing with age and dryness but neither am I. Funny thing is, I've already gone through three … Continue reading Notes From Underhuman
There is a reason you can't get divorced in a church. There is also a reason a church can't issue a marriage license. Beyond the fact that worst-writer thinks marriage--as a state sanctioned institution--should be abolished, there is the age-old question of what came first: the chicken or the gullible? I won't argue the issue … Continue reading Separation Of Church And The Gullible
https://youtu.be/0iPb9xhogoY?t=19m30s Once again, just like here, Michael Hudson nails it--and his book, Killing the Host, is going on my to-read list. Allow me to quote (or is this called transcribe?) the part from the interview in the above vid that really struck me. "They make their money for the same reason they've paid billions in civil … Continue reading Deregulate That Fraud Baby!
Kept putting it off. Didn't want to go there. Must adhere to minimalist principles. It's the only way to live. Or? Yeah. Oh what the heck! Life's too short. I broke down and ordered my first blu-ray drive Thursday. It arrived Friday. No player for me, though. It's an internal LG unit that fits perfectly … Continue reading Slice of Raspberry Pi With Your Led Zeppelin?
I'm not really thinking of revolution but I am thinking of the consequence of those who are able, through whatever means, to take advantage of it. These are the people who stand by with white tails and gimmi-geeks and they plaster their wits on the walls of power. The owners of power, on the other hand, laugh … Continue reading Robespierre vs Orwell
