USA is a country of the Bible

Posted on November 8th, 2012 at 23:59 by John Sinteur in category: Pastafarian News

Some States have legalized Same Sex Marriage and Marijuana use.

This is completely in line with the Bible, which teaches that any man who lays with another man must be stoned.

  1. John, this is the best quote I’ve seen all week! With your permission (or without) I’m going to send this to all by family and friends who understand this issue! And to a lot who don’t! :-)

  2. Brilliant!

  3. Well, since in some cases both measures were on the ballot, I could have made a joke about passing a joint resolution…

A retweet count of  1,424, gosh why is that? Perhaps because there are a couple of very minor little problems here …

  1. Australian does not have a President, they never have, instead they have a Prime Minister.
  2. Their Prime Minister is not a “he”, but rather is a “she” – One can only wonder if Julia Gillard was rather surprised to discover that she was now a “he”.
  3. She is also not a Christian. In a 2010 interview when asked if she believed in God, Gillard stated: “No I don’t … I’m not a religious person … [I'm] a great respecter of religious beliefs but they’re not my beliefs

So apart from that, everything else she said was factually correct – oh wait, there was nothing else.

  1. But, she is still moving to Australia, right?

  2. Wait now, let me get all this straight and summarize, using the logic that has been applied by some folks in the USA in the past.
    Isn’t the fact that Romney lost… God’s will?
    Wow, that was easy!

  3. Also, she’s not married – she’s living with her partner without the benefit of clergy. And she wasn’t born in Australia.

  4. Perhaps she meant Austria? Frank Stronach is moving back there to buy the presidency…

Republican Reckoning Begins After Revealing Defeat

“The billionaire donors I hear are livid,” one Republican operative told The Huffington Post. “There is some holy hell to pay. Karl Rove has a lot of explaining to do … I don’t know how you tell your donors that we spent $390 million and got nothing.”

Looks like the South Park animation team pulled an all-nighter to make the acceptance speech scene match the real one as much as possible:

When A Mouse Requires An Internet Connection, You’re Doing ‘Cloud’ Wrong

Posted on November 8th, 2012 at 12:37 by John Sinteur in category: ¿ʞɔnɟ ǝɥʇ ʇɐɥʍ, Software, What were they thinking?

[Quote]:

This really took me by surprise. Just bought a new Naga 2012 mouse, installed the software and get greeted by a login screen right after. No option to bypass it to use the software to configure the mouse, set the options, sensitivity, shortcuts, macros etc.

So I go ahead and create an account and try to log in. Nothing. Try several more times, and still nothing. Try to make new accounts with different email addresses and it still wont work.

Finally call Razer who tells me the activation server is down, and I wont be able to use the mouse until it goes back up and will only be able to use it as a standard plug and play mouse til then. I ask about a workaround to use the mouse offline and they say there is none. Supposedly once the mouse is activated on the computer offline mode will work, but it needs to upload my profile and activate my account first and since their server is down its not going to happen. I ask for a supervisor to confirm this is the case and ask again for a workaround to use it offline. He said sorry theres nothing they can do, tells me the call center is closing and hangs up on me.

I’m pretty shocked Razer thought it was a good idea to do this to customers. Nowhere on the box does it say anything about needing an internet connection to “activate” a mouse. If the servers go down in the future, anyone who buys this mouse is out of luck.

  1. I’d say when a mouse requires an internet connection, you’re doing “mouse” wrong.

  2. Razer missed a trick there, they could have charged the purchase price all over again to ‘unlock’ the device. That’s how capitalism works. If you don’t believe me ask someone whose just spent $390 million with nothing to show for it.

Todd Akin Spends Whole Night Wondering What Went Wrong

Posted on November 8th, 2012 at 0:50 by John Sinteur in category: Indecision 2012

Following a disappointing loss in his state’s U.S. Senate race to incumbent Claire McCaskill, Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) told reporters Wednesday that he spent all of last night racking his brain and trying to figure out what had gone wrong with his campaign. “I don’t know what happened. I was polling really well until late August, but then it all just kind of unraveled,” said Akin, adding that he was “still piecing together” the causes of his collapse. “I just keep replaying those weeks and months over and over in my head, searching for something, anything, that I could have said or done differently, and absolutely nothing comes to mind. Maybe it was my views on tax reform that did me in. I don’t know.”

  1. “Maybe it was my views on tax reform that did me in.”

    Ha ha ha,
    hee hee hee,
    the truth is clear,
    mysogny.

  2. Republicans usually lose when they actually say what they’re thinking.

  3. The sad thing is, I almost missed the source of that article.

    Did I just fall victim to Poe’s law?

  4. There should be a rule that if you have less intelligence than a rock, then you cannot run for public office…

  5. In the US the rule appears to be, they put you on the Science Committee.

Well, Search Me!

Posted on November 8th, 2012 at 0:05 by John Sinteur in category: Do you feel safer yet?

[Quote]:

“That search was absolutely useless.” I said. “And just shows how much of all of this is security theatre. You guys are just feeling up passengers for no good effect, which means that you get all the downsides of a search – such as annoyed travellers who feel like they have had their privacy violated – without any of the benefits. I could have hidden half a dozen items on my person that you wouldn’t have had a snowball’s chance in a supernova of finding. That’s what I meant.”

“Sir, are you hiding something?” he said, and as he did, I saw three other security guys coming our way. Oh dear.

“Of course not.” I said. “But if I had wanted to, I could have.”

“Why do you have such a problem with being searched?” another security guy said, presumably the first guy’s supervisor.

“Look, I have absolutely no problem with being searched. But if you’re going to do it, do it properly – the plane is no safer at all after this gentleman half-heartedly stroked me for a couple of seconds” I said.

“How do you mean?” the supervisor asked.

“He was stroking me as if he was trying to get me to sleep with him, not as if he was trying to find anything on me.” I said. “I’ve been searched many, many times, and in this case, I could have hidden things in my socks, taped to my thigh, taped to the small of my back, the insides of my upper arms, under my testicles or anywhere on my buttocks.”

“Why have you been searched so many times?” the supervisor asked sharply.

“I’m a police officer. I help train other police officers. When we search someone, we assume that the person who searches us may have a knife or something else they can use to harm us, so we search properly. And yes, this means that you have to take a firm grip of somebody’s groin, yes, this means that you search even the parts that are less comfortable to have searched, and yes, this means that you’re probably going to incur a couple of sexual harassment accusations along the way.” I nodded at the security guard who had searched me. “This fellow here did by far the most useless search I have ever been subjected to, and if I wanted to, I could have smuggled half a dozen knives onto the flight. I don’t have a problem with being searched at all – in fact, if you guys think it’s necessary, I’d be the first to admit that I look a little bit suspicious before I’ve had my first cup of coffee in the morning – but if you’re going to stroke me gently in front of hundreds of people, you’d better buy me a fucking drink first, is all I am saying.”

The security supervisor was standing there, frozen at my rant.

    This is actually known as “a Belgian compromise”, i.e. an inefficient solution that nobody is happy with and which despite a stiff price tag is bordering on utter uselessness. It is usually instated to avoid a complete deadlock on a particular matter, in the process misleading the general public that the problem has been solved.

    In general, it is accompanied by a tax raise or other form of cashing in on the issue and the final phrasing of the solution deliberately kept as vague as possible so all arguing factions can claim victory and interpret it any way they want. Execution or enforcement in the field most of the time proves impossible because nobody understands what exactly is supposed to be done, who is in charge or what other compromises it is conflicting with.

    Once in effect, the formerly disagreeing parties will do everything in their power to preserve the status quo, including demonisation of any third party questioning its usefulness in search of a real solution.
