Shame That Nothing Has Chosen To Occupy This Guy’s Empty Head

People, people, people! When are you going to learn that if you’re not sure what you’re protesting, it’s best you stay home and read up on it instead of drawing up a sign and heading downtown? You’re giving the folks trying to lend support to what may well be a legitimate and worthwhile movement a …

On Free Speech And Hate Speech

The Bill Whatcott hate speech case seems to be sparking a lot of debate in the media, even though the thing should be a no brainer. Do I like that this douchehamper went around distributing flyers that said bad things about gay people and objected to schools teaching same sex issues to students? No. In …

I’m Amazed You Got Lost In The Maize Maze

It worries me that these people A: reproduced and B: are allowed out unsupervised. An evening stroll through a corn maze at Danvers’ Connors Farm took a confusing turn Monday, Oct. 10, for a family that became disoriented in the rows of corn and called 911 to ask for help.

Ouch. Can’t Think Of Any Better Title

Really, this story doesn’t need much else said. I mean, all you need are the words Man Stabbed In Scrotum With Hypodermic Needle and the flinching begins. I don’t even possess a scrotum and I’m shrieking imagining the agony. And to make things worse, part of the needle broke off inside. Ow ow ow ow …

Things To Do: Waste Time, Bore My Followers…

If I’d had any sense, I should have put this next thing up the day Steve wrote about the ability to make twit tickets. But since I don’t, it goes up today. For some inexplicable reason, someone has come up with the ability for people to write their to do list using Twitter. It’s called …
