PAPELBON FIGHT NO GEORGE BELL DROP KICK


This weeks dugout dust up involving players with the Expos Washington Nationals was impressive. A team that was supposed to go all the way, and they did, except it was into the toilet. It takes balls to take a swipe at a top NL MVP candidate over a perceived lack of ‘hussle’. But Jonathan Papelbon is a major league asshat, baseball fans…

INTRODUCING: THE OLD CURMUDGEON


I have a devil of a time with passwords, and it is getting worse now that I’m over 75. It got me thinking – while I still can.. After WW2, there was a lot of money in Swiss and other bank accounts, placed there by individuals for safekeeping in the prewar years. OK – so what? Well, the war destroyed…

RAGE BASSIST WON’T TAKE MULLIGAN ON LIMP BIZKIT


Back when the century was turning Rage Against the Machine was a anti-establishment, money printing juggernaut. Massive. Rather ironic. However, even now, I really couldn’t name a contemporary. And it’s a dirty shame they aren’t here like in the old days. Now, especially at a time when we could use a voice like theirs in todays music and popular culture. Much…

TREVOR NOAH BETTER HOST THAN CORRESPONDENT


I was worried like everyone else. I’ve watched Jon Stewart since the very beginning, pretty much. I even, sorta, remember when the Daily Show was hosted by Craig Kilborn, and it wasn’t funny, at least for me. Which probably accounts for why I didnt see it. Bill Mahr was funnier at the time and killing it on ABC’s Politically Incorrect, anyway… until…

RUSH LIMBAUGH: MARS WATER FAKED BY OBAMA. WELL, OF COURSE.


Everyones favourite pill popping, oxy-dependent, loveable cartoon-like Republican Gummy Bear, Rush Limbaugh, knows a thing or two about science. Powered by the mellow-makers and bags of M&M’s, presumably, he has helpfully peeled back the layers of deception on this whole, space Mars water thing. Thank god! Turns out, they didnt find water! Whaaaaaaa?? *full transcript here* (except they found it here. but…

CATALAN SEPARATISTS WIN ELECTION: JOB #’S RISE WITH NEW LOBBYISTS


Spain, already a poster child for Europe’s toilet bowl economy that’s long over due for a flush, is facing a political crisis.   One that will likely mean another update to Google maps. Catalonia, the place where dictators and families alike have flocked for centuries, has elected a separatist government. Already fairly autonomous, Catalan’s already have their own language, culture and tradition…

GERMANY NEEDS PLAYGROUNDS


Germany, the mighty EU powerhouse lead by an alleged nudist, needs to invest in more playgrounds. .. Or clubs for youth. * no wait*, hold on. … check out the cool POV of climbing a 363m Radio Tower in Dronebach-Germany. http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=4f9_1443300063

‘ROID MOON PUMPED FOR TONIGHT


For crazies, Druids and Wiccan’s, tonight Supermoon is either a sign of the impending apocalypse or something to worship. Or if you’re like me, you get drunk around a fire and throw beer cans at it. (*That stoopid moon, he thinks he’s so bright*) But for those eggheads at NASA, you make really cool videos explaining why it’s going to…

STARS WARS FILMING DAMAGES UNESCO SITE


It has come out Stars Wars crews filming VII & VIII  reportedly damaged a couple of rocks and a bit of masonry at Michael Skellig, including steps from the 8th or 9th century. The same steps where fat Luke Skywalker almost used the force of gravityto turn himself into a hologram for the next movie.   All I can say is thank make-believe god…

HAHA: AARON SORKIN DICK SMACKS TIM COOK


Aaron Sorkin told Apple CEO Tim Cook to blow it out ass over child labour. It was awesome. It happened during an exclusive interview with The Hollywood Reporter – go read it. The quote is a slam-dunk.  “Third, if you’ve got a factory full of children in China assembling phones for 17 cents an hour you’ve got a lot of nerve…

YSK: THE END OF ‘TOO BIG TO FAIL’?


The big banks are gearing up for a showdown in London on Friday. Divided into teams, shirts and skins, they will square off in a battle to the death (note: not true). They will bicker over new global banking policies. Ones that are supposed to ensure taxpayers are never left holding the bill for asshole bankers and their corrupt banking…

F-35 IS LETHAL FOR TAXPAYERS


  ATOP my soapbox perch, the view is quite remarkable. From here I can see the worlds largest ‘goatsee’ (uh, warning: do not google xnsfw!!). With each hand helpfully provided by the conjoined twins, industry and government.  And through the centre march taxpayers stepping along in happy unison as someone working a loudspeaker pays homage to South Park’s world wide recorder concert. The F-35 is…

THE REAL BIG MAC ATTACK


*Sigh*….. These are the sorts of things the internet is really good for. Guilting me into acknowledging the shitty food (I blissfully deny eating as much as I do) that I pack in my pie-hole is tantamount to meth for my mouth.  The folks over at Fast Food Menu Price  have assembled this helpful, yet nightmarishly frightening, infographic reminding us of why a salad, or the by the looks of it, a…

YSK: YOU SHOULD KNOW


FRANK GEHRY’S WATERWORLD The web is a kaleidoscope of interesting and awful content, (for those new to the internet). Readers note: that’s the kind of brilliant insight you can come to expect from the team of unpaid workers who fuel this inferno of knowledge *sigh* But, every so often i stumble across a story that begs to be shared. The water crisis in…
