I shall quote a fellow SubGenius: "Dear this girl: I hate you."
Really though… WHAT THE FUCK. I hate you.
An article about [what THEY consider to be] the 5 most overrated and underrated Ween songs.
and WOW — look how angry the Ween fanboys got at him for daring to have an opinion! Amazing. I had to leave a comment in his defense!
Breakdown of IMDB ratings. The weighted average is 9.4/10, which is just about the highest rating I've ever seen for anything on IMDB. Especially given that there have been over 19,000 votes.
Consider this an endorsement of one of the best series that ever aired.
If you do undertake watching this series, MAKE SURE to watch the pilot first.
No specific link to it, but Putz took 5 videos from Dirk's funeral, which are at this link. The funeral was so packed — and the podium so poorly placed — that a lot of us could not even tell who was speaking. Definitely will have to watch these, as the camera had a better view than we did. It was a beautiful service.
They thought he was drunk. They "allegedly" threw him to the ground. They "allegedly" kicked him. They "allegedly" tried to handcuff him, but couldn't, due to the limited mobility of cerebral palsy. They "allegedly" slammed him against a car hood. They "allegedly" tied his legs together.
The charged him with resisting arrest, and 2nd degree trespassing. Charges were dismissed. Blood tests showed ZERO alcohol, but even if he were drunk, this is completely unacceptable. It's unacceptable that the officers aren't named, either.
A guy writes software that creates classical music that audiences are unable to discern from Bach, Mozart.
And yet, a lot of people are mad and furious that he's done this, and are offended by the results.
You see, people don't like it when their humanity can be reduced to computer code. People want to believe we are so special that our attributes can't be reproduced.
People are wrong. And prideful. This is just a new group of neo-Luddites.
I still remember reading a murder mystery in the 1980s that was written solely by a computer. Shit happens. Art isn't all so special that it can only come from a human brain — though artists would love to perpetuate this myth in order to starve less.
Yup, after all this: He's still working. He was never taken off duty, even as his own officers tased him for being a dangerous drunk driver. Thin blue line at work.
The World Court has ruled that all the settlements Israel has built in occupied territory are illegal. America has told them to stop. But they don't care. Driven by religion, they will do anything to have "their" holy city, even when they already have half of it.

Really. It's a public statue visible in public space. You don't get to control who publishes that image. Nevermind that the "artist" supposedly being "protected" died in 1961. This is just more bullshit from the Catholic church.
Two bullshit concepts teamed up for double-douchebaggery: Religion, and intellectual "property".
I wonder how Brazilians tithing their income to the church feel about their money being used to pay lawyers to try to censor movies? All in Christ's name, right? But wait! Christ was a pirate! He made unauthorized copies of fish, to feed a whole crowd! ;)
