Electrogravetic force? Sure thing...

Bored? Tired of creationist woo but still looking for a dose of pseudo-science wackiness?



Might I suggest "THE ELECTRIC UNIVERSE" and all things contained within.



Gravity is just electricity but all these "ignorant" main stream scientists refuse to admit it, choosing to waste money and time on stuff they know can't be true!



*facepalm*



This article is just the… Continue

Just what does the VP do?

She doesn't know either!

Palin babbles; Iraq war a "task from god"

Palin speaking before her church (assembly of god church; IE dominionists) proclaiming the Alaska pipeline as "gods work" and the war in Iraq as "task from god".



90% of this is 'woo' and, honestly I find it a little boring but I don't think we need politicians in any seat of power thinking that war is tasked by… Continue

Cloned animals taste just as good!

File under stupid:



Clones' offspring may be in food supply: FDA



"It worries me that this technology is out of control in so many ways," said Charles Margulis, a spokesman with the Center for Environmental Health. The possibility of offspring being in the food supply "is just another element of that," he…

Campbell Brown grills McCain spokesperson; reduces to blubbering fool

Watch as McCaininite Tucker Bounds gets put against the ropes trying to defend Palin's qualifications. His "I know you are but what am I" style responses are expected (throwing the entire question aside to attack Obama) but then tries to claim that Palin has military command experience, making her perfect for the role of defacto commander in cheif!



Apparently her "command" of the Alaska National Guard makes her totally qualified to be president should need… Continue

"We will act as Americans, not partisans"

McCain orders GOP convention curtailed because of Gustav; Bush, Cheney cancel



ST. PAUL, Mn. - John McCain tore up the script for his Republican National Convention on Sunday, casting himself as above politics as Hurricane Gustav churned toward New Orleans. "We will act as Americans, not partisans", he declared.




There is still going to be a rather large… Continue

Pre-emptive Strike on RNC protesters

Playtime with the westboro cultists!

Being as I live about 20 minutes from the Xcel Center I can't help but go to the Republican Convention next week. I've mentioned in the past that I hope to get some good audio to use for the show (I'll definitely have pictures if nothing else) and I plan to stick to that.



I've been poking around the web and making phone calls to find out who's going to be where and at what time. It seems 11am Monday, on the steps of the capital, is the place to be. A number of groups have coordinated… Continue

Mythbusters vs. Moon Landing

I tend to humor conspiracy theory proponents. They’re typically quiet, generally decent humans and more or less harmless as far as I’m concerned. Getting into a debate with one has the potential to be as mind-numbingly painful (not to mention useless) as debating a fundamentalist christian but if you just let them ramble on and nod every once and a while you can escape without tearing out your hair. I don’t believe this brand of lunacy should go on unchecked but when they person you’ve come… Continue

"Eugenics is applied Darwinism"

Typical evolution = Hitler crap...again. Good for a Sunday afternoon chuckle though :)

Stunning documentary links Darwin, Hitler

Here's the 'documentary' thing on YouTube if you're up for an hour of punishment.

When a Poe isn't: A new breed of crazy

I stated very early on that it wasn’t my sole intent to make this blog a constant source of fundamentalist ridicule. I hold to that (see my post on Tardigrades) but being as the bigfoot scandal is over, the raelians are quiet and scientologists haven’t tried to kill anyone in a while…I’m at a loss. Some fairly interesting stuff happened in the Olympics this week but I imagine you’re just as sick of hearing about Phelps (not fred) as I am. That aside, and in my own defense, some of this stuff is… Continue

Awesome Hi-Rez photos

The Boston Globe website has a newer feature, detailing various topics with some gigantically hi-rez photos, called The Big Picture.

There's a number of different features here but the Large Hadron Collider and 'Views of Jupiter' tickled my geekier side.

Seeya later Dems

A while back it was announced that the Democratic National Convention will be kicked off with what’s being called the “first-ever Democratic National Convention interfaith gathering“. The polarization among loyal democrats seemed nearly instant, some seeing it as a line in the sand and others writing it off as nothing but a show to win votes. The latter was my initial reaction; it just seemed to surreal. The overall weirdness of the ordeal never left my mind but I’ve been able to mentally write… Continue

If there is no god…ohnoes!

Fundamentalists news websites, how I love thee, especially WorldNutDaily. WND never ceases to provide amusement in the form of fundie logic and wacky advertisements. Claiming itself as a ‘news source’ this beyond right-wing rag makes Fox news look like the Disney Channel. I used to get pissed at the B.S. they sling but I’ve come to embrace it for what it really is; satirical humor. Some people can take this stuff with a grain of salt and some can’t, so steer clear if you’re easily aggravated by… Continue

Amazing Tardigrades

The world in general is pretty amazing and I think as adults we sometimes loose sight of this. Life just kicks us in the ass at some point and, for some of us, that curiosity and amazement flickers out. In a past show I alluded to this in a rant about how people might be a little happier in day to day life if they would stop worrying about the sudden stop at the end and just appreciate how amazing our little blue/green ball is.



In the spirit of that rant I’ve decided to start a new… Continue

Bill Donohue Hates America

Catholic league president Bill Donohue probably hates you. Unless, of course, you are Bill Donohue.



The Catholic League, despite the name, doesn’t particularly reflect the views of the catholic church in general due to the barking lunacy of this Donohue character. He’s vicious, angry and more or less anti-everything, aside from his own dogma, which makes him a turd in a lot of peoples laundry.



I first became aware of this vacuous chode a while back when he called for the… Continue

Bigfoot costume found in foam beer cooler

BIGFOOT BODY FOUND!



I was shocked! It's bigfoot! Look! See it!? No?...



me either but this sort of thing is one of my favorite flavors of bullshit. That entire writeup oozes hoax. It's funny but it's still BS.



Why am I being so judgmental?



"The creature was found ... in the woods in northern Georgia. (The exact location is being kept secret to protect the creatures.)"

Ark. city neighborhood under 24-hour curfew

Is there anyone here living near this area or that knows someone whom does that can confirm this or give any insight as to what, exactly, in the hell is going on?
