MUSIC: METAL: DEATHS: GWAR frontman Dave Brockie — aka ‘Oderus Urungus’ — found dead in Richmond, Va., home: police

First Peter Steele, now this.

Nothing to remind you that you’ve entered middle age like having all your bands slowly drop dead.

I guess if Holliston is renewed, they won’t have Oderus on every episode either.

I guess these GWAR songs I’m learning for future concerts… Will only ever be heard inside my house?

This sucks.

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION: Well-sourced list of 252 examples of lying, lawbreaking, corruption, cronyism, etc.

Wow.

I’m not going to pretend to have read all this (got about 50 in so far), but the onus to read this list is really on the people who are still making excuses to defend our current jackass of a president.

GUNS: Analyzing shooting rampage statistics after Newtown school Shooting

Average deaths in a shooting rampage when stopped by police: 14.3
Average deaths in a shooting rampage when stopped by civilians: 2.3.

It should be noted, though, that that includes unarmed civilians.

So really, a civilian actually doing something reduces the average from 14.3 to 2.6 — 11.7 people saved on average. Them being armed only saves 0.8 lives a shooting (1 life every 4 out of 5 shootings).

The point being: Doing something is better than doing nothing, and waiting for the police is what will give you the lowest odds of surviving. And if someone is going to be a hero – they will a better job at doing so if they have the tools available.

CORPORATION: My Sister Paid Progressive Insurance to Defend Her Killer In Court

I have no doubt about this, as Progressive lied and did not act in my own interest when I had them as well. They are fucking liars.

There’s a reason they are the cheapest – because they don’t pay out, apparently.

Defending someone who doesn’t have a Progressive policy in order to not pay the person who has the policy — simply because that saves the corporation money — is incredibly immoral.

DO NOT BUY PROGRESSIVE.

I switched to NationWide, and they seem much better. But all the companies are a little evil, right?  Progressive took the cake with their lies to me & Carolyn, though.
