I'm amused by weird things, which makes me likely to check out links with high weird potential.

This one's so strange it even weirds me out: It appears to be a decrepit shrine to 50s/60s/70s/80s-era child actors, but with an active message board.

Jesus Christ. Apparently someone read this joke (various forms)...

Anarcho-syndicalist: "So now do you understand why supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses?"

Drive-thru worker: "Yes, but I still need to know if you want dipping sauce."

...and didn't realize it was a joke. 🤦


hysterically-bad political threats 😂 

Republican gangstas keep it real. 🔫

"Gov. Wolf, let me tell you, between now and Nov. 6, you better put a catcher’s mask on your face because I’m going to stomp all over your face with golf spikes"


Quit my job today. Boost to celebrate. 🎺

I'm moving to the UK tomorrow to become an ornithologist.

Poll: What do you do when someone who cursed you out on practically no provocation starts creating other accounts and following you with them? 🤔

(I have nothing against a good fuck, shit, or other epithets, to express general emotion. I think it takes on a different meaning when they're addressed AT people.)

Holy $#!+. Remember Elizabeth Lambert, the soccer player whose career was ended because the opposing team posted her yanking their player's hair (and it was fairly obvious they edited out their own fouls)?

No double standard here, folks. Move along.

@MySideIsHumanity Yeah. Guilt hurts, so when people feel guilty there's this reflex that makes them feel justified. It's sorta always important to try to sort out the guilty feelings from being sincerely hurt.

One thing that drives me nuts about the free speech crowd is how they want to debate you but only when they want to. It's like, "I just posted my opinion and you attacked me!" and it's like, bro, you're the one who wanted people to say whatever, whenever.

To watch the MLB playoffs on your /computer/, you have to pay them $25. Not terribly unreasonable. 🤔

You also have to subscribe to one of their approved cable channels, or sucks to be you. 🤷

"Sensationalist corporate media" is a mouthful.

Next time, just shorten it to "rage porn". 😒

"A profound ignorance of economics. The engine of development of the Digital Revolution was not state planning, whether you call that an industrial policy or a defense policy. It was free capital markets and venture funds which channelled savings to thousands upon thousands of companies, enabling them to start, and the successful to thrive."
