We endeavor to give satisfaction

John Ellis for President

August 31st, 2011 by The Junior Ganymede

The coveted Junior Ganymede presidential endorsement is rarely given. But every now and again a candidate comes along whose luminous vision impels this august institution to get off the sidelines. Annex Canada 2012. (more…)

There’s the professional approach

August 30th, 2011 by Vader

And there’s the amateur approach. I cannot help but think there is much to commend it.

Affirmative action for ugly people?

August 30th, 2011 by Vader

His Majesty and I seem to have done all right without any special accomodations.

Though, to be fair, my mask was provided by the government, in the person of His Majesty.

Just not right

August 29th, 2011 by Vader

At least, that’s how I react to honoring an anti-Nazi who died under the guillotine … with a bust.

It just seems creepy wrong somehow.

There are no nerds

August 29th, 2011 by Vader

A gentleman

August 27th, 2011 by Vader

Don’t worry about takin’ off the tie before takin’ on the murderin’ scum.

I reckon the tale could have been told with a bit less salt, though. Consider yerself warned.

Saving the Buddha

August 26th, 2011 by Adam G.

This excellent essay categorizes the types of needs that religion fills and then ranks the faiths of the world by how “developed” they are, i.e., by how many of these categories they fill and how completely. (In his terms, “developed” is not the same as “true,” not necessarily). He concludes that Buddhism and Christianity are the most developed religions. (more…)

“Individualities tending towards savagery”

August 23rd, 2011 by Vader

Unabomber aspirants wreak terror on nanotechnologists.

A superb example of bullies being afraid to pick on someone their own size.

Personally, I prefer my technological terrors to be the size of small moons.

Hat tip to His Hehness, who also links one of my favorite fellow promulgants of weapons of mass destruction with some perspective on nanotechnology.
