Now here's a plan we can all rally behind

As always, Frank J has the solution to our problems.

My personal fave part?

But what do ambitious, capable people do in this country? They start their own businesses and lead successful lives comfortably away from the fickleness of the ballot box. So that just leaves the people who are ambitious but useless and just love the thought of being able to meddle in all the useful things everyone else is doing. And then the whole election process, where the politicians constantly lie and change their positions on issues to keep their jobs, tends to weed out the people who aren’t also sociopaths. So the system we have has basically set us up to be governed by ambitious, useless sociopaths who love to meddle in everything actual contributors to society are doing. So lawyers, for the most part.

It's funny because it's true!

My kingdom for a poll!

Why should the Head Moron have all the fun?

According to Rasmussen, Republicans are now more trusted than Democrats on all 10 of the issues in the poll.

I think it's fascinating that the only issue on which either party has over 50% is on taxes.

Hay, can he do that?



That's just pure win.
Question, is that MP? It has to be Wisconsin.

Via the Jawas, who took a break from poking jihadis with sticks.

Speculative Fiction

I'm sure it's old, but it's new to me.
It's a huge compilation of free stories from various sci-fi authors. Lots of it is from Amazing and Astounding Stories and stuff like that from the 30s, 40s and 50s.
Very cool.

They're the ones who call it "Speculative Fiction". That's always made me laugh.
It's what you call science fiction in polite company. So naturally I always point and laugh when I hear it.
I don't get invited to polite company too much. Odd that.

I forgot where I saw it, I had a comment thread bookmarked from years ago that I clicked, at Sharp as a Marble, I either clicked his blogroll and found the link at that site or found it in his archives.

The Emmy your Emmy could smell like!

Old Spice Guy won an Emmy! Okay, okay technically the creative team at the ad agency but if Gore has an Oscar than Old Spice Guy has an Emmy.


Annnnd obligatory.



And this is great - it's an interview about how the ad was made.  Dear God, the guys are 12.

D-Day Piper Bill Millin Dead at 88

You might remember the bagpipe scenes from The Longest Day...yeah, Millin was that guy.  Not Hollywood BS, Millin was a real guy, and he really did play the bagpipes during Normandy.  Even though playing the pipes had pretty much been barred from frontline action since WWI, Millin's commanding officer ordered him to play anyway in order to boost morale, and Millin complied.




You have to admire a guy who'd march unarmed onto Sword Beach, playing away on loud bagpipes while Jerry's shooting at you and lobbing mortars and shells your way.

WANT! FUCKING WANT!!1!1!ty

I mean, I really, really, really fucking want this. And the name of the company? Scandicraft! How fucking awesome!

The quadrotors can launch, recover, and recharge themselves at their huts (or “hangars” I guess), and when it snows (which I hear it doesn’t do once or twice a year), the bots can stay snug at home, enjoying their stylish furnishings which you can find at your friendly neighborhood IKEA as part of the new Röböüüüt collection.

Only thing missing? A Machine gun. Other than that, it's fucking perfect!

Watching this video gave me the kind of boner that leads to an awesome night of pork roasts and pussytubing.

So, 1 in 5 Americans Think Obama is a Muslim

That's obviously idiotic. 

Everybody knows that Obama is an atheist. 

I'd suggest he could be an agnostic but I'm pretty sure there is no topic on which Obama would admit he doesn't know the answer.

Not to belabor the point but...

is Ace on fucking fire or what?


So -- Confederate flag at the SC statehouse again?

Because the people flying the flag there say they too have good, non-objectionable motivations for doing so -- a reminder of heritage, honoring the dead, etc., etc. But previously we have shown skepticism towards their claimed motivations, and also decided their motivations were irrelevant -- it wouldn't even matter, we decided, if their motives were pure; the important thing was the Confederate flag was too hurtful to have near the people's house of government.

Again, so I now find out this isn't the rule anymore.

So if it's not the rule anymore: Why can't we have the Confederate flag at the SC statehouse?

Yes, I know, blacks (and others, including whites) consider it offensive and a nasty reminder of a national tragedy; but the spokesmen from Cordoba House have a response to such concerns, and that response is "Fuck yourself, get over it already."

So why doesn't that work in South Carolina, too?

I bring it up because making that leap to tie those together is simply genius.

Kate Mara has a little sister

And I thought that at least one of our bloggers would be interested that she's been cast as Lisbeth Salander, but he hasn't even bothered responding.

This is Rooney Mara, Kate's little sister.  Kate and Rooney are great-granddaughters of the founders of both the Steelers and the Giants, BTW.

It's amazing how few cheesecake shots of Rooney are out there.

In case you've forgotten who Kate Mara is...

more...

And now for something completely different

Have some random dancing videos, just because watching people be amazing at what they do always puts me in a good mood.

Astaire was 50 when he did that, btw.



Oh Mikhail, seriously, you're unreal.



When I think class, I think Gene Kelly. Also, I can't even stand up on roller skates.



As DPud put it so well, crapblog needs moar Aishwarya.


Oh, Cyd. Greatest. Legs. Ever.

This Looks Fantastic

And not just because the whole teaser is backed up by Nine Inch Nails music.
