I've been waiting all day for it to be friday.

God keep and bless Florida Man.

How city people pass the time.

How Japanese people past the time. My favourite waste of petaflops.

Several adults attending HS graduation caught on video brawling. In a church. Over a seat.

The return of Mattress Girl: https://broadly.vice.com/en_us/article/mattress-girl-emma-sulkowicz-is-backand-channeling-her-rage-through-bdsm?utm_source=broadlytwitterus

"Correction: This story originally gendered a concerned viewer at Emma Sulkowicz's 'The Ship Is Sinking' performance as "she." They use pronouns "they/them." We regret the error."

Dr. Toboggan

More:

"You have people like Pollock splattering a bunch of shit and then saying it's art. It doesn't say anything political and in fact, that actual political statement it does say is: 'I'm a white man and I can do whatever the fuck I want and make a ton of money off of it.'"

Says the talentless weirdo cashing in on being a "woman of color".

David

“Unexpectedly”

I can’t help but notice how readily the author of the article rhetorically tongues Ms Sulkowicz. Every absurd claim, every vanity, every bogus statistic, is left unchallenged, as if it were unassailable and self-evident.

Remember, people: Always respect the media!

Dr. Toboggan

Whoops, apologies Joan

Next time I will read the other comments first

She’s sending subtle signals.

Every absurd claim, every vanity, every bogus statistic, is left unchallenged, as if it were unassailable and self-evident.

I wonder - has anyone approached Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) for her thoughts on 'The Ship Is Sinking' yet?

And I wonder when we can expect Time magazine to publish a review of the piece? After all, it was Time that gave the then 22 year-old Miss Sulkowicz the space to pen an op-ed in which she wrote:

    Every day, I am afraid to leave my room. Even seeing people who look remotely like my rapist scares me. Last semester I was working in the dark room in the photography department. Though my rapist wasn’t in my class, he asked permission from his teacher to come and work in the dark room during my class time. I started crying and hyperventilating. As long as he’s on campus with me, he can continue to harass me.

I wonder how long I will be wondering for ...

Seems... pleasant.

The kind of girl you're happy to bring home to Mom, if you're Grendel.

David

Seems… pleasant.

She has the same air of easy charm as the Guardian’s Aisha Mirza.

Not just us here in America, but worldwide. In case you didn’t know, the entire world was black a few thousand years ago. The ancient Europeans, Asians, Chinese, Indians, Arabs, and Israelites were all black. But when the Caucasians (white people) evolved from Neanderthals into human beings, they performed Blanqueamiento wherever they went to control the population. This is why all of the indigenous populations of the earth today are now populated by whites.

History, people!

Meanwhile in Oregon . . .

David

Meanwhile in Oregon…

Over the last 72 hours, students have taken over a small liberal arts college in Washington state… Students have… occupied and barricaded the library, shouting down anyone who disagrees with them or shows insufficient passion for racial justice… protesters stopped cars yesterday, demanding information about occupants…

Their Angry Studies lecturers must be terribly proud. They should get the hoses first.

Spiny Norman

Meanwhile in Oregon…

Ah yes, Evergreen State, aka "Cannabis U", perhaps the most left-liberal school in the entire country, and these special snowflake students are claiming to be "unsafe".

[ headdesk ]

Spiny Norman

History, people!

This is the sort of ahistorical nonsense they teach the special snowflakes at places like Evergreen State - and in Grievance Studies departments at many, many others.

...nothing is destroying the black family quicker today than interracial marriage.

Ohferfuckssake. Only if one ignores 50 years of the welfare state outright encouraging black men to abandon their children - even when the mothers are white.

But when the Caucasians (white people) evolved from Neanderthals into human beings...

Ah, Reverend Farrakhan would like to have a word with you, Mr Lindsay.

R. Sherman

Only if one ignores 50 years of the welfare state outright encouraging black men to abandon their children - even when the mothers are white.

Not to mention the demographics of murder perpetrators and victims in places like Chicago.

Spiny Norman

R.Sherman

"Racial justice" activists claim the shootings in Chicago are perpetrated by racist white cops. Just ask them.

jabrwok

Only if one ignores 50 years of the welfare state outright encouraging black men to abandon their children.

And encourages black women to kick their baby-daddies out of their homes. Wouldn't want to lose those taxpayer-funded bennies after all!

"The video begins with Horowitz interviewing a number of white people at a so-called "White Privilege Conference" in Kansas City, Missouri, and asking them if they believe that every white person is a beneficiary of white privilege. The white leftists say yes, with one lady saying that she feels "super guilty all the time." In fact, a number of the white leftists Horowitz interviewed claimed that all whites in America are racist.Then Horowitz asked the same people if it was "wrong to judge people collectively." They all answered yes, seemingly unaware of the obvious contradiction that Horowitz caught them in. When Horowitz proceeded to ask them how white privilege benefited them that day, none of them were able to give a coherent answer."

Almost forgot an end quote! Preview is my friend:-D.

Darleen

Meanwhile in Oregon…

“Didn’t you educate us on how to do s—t like this?” one student said. “It was you that taught us that in class. Right, though? You taught us to go and change the world. Ain’t that what you all sell on that state college page? To when s—t is wrong that we should try to change it? So why you all in here eating cake and chewing?”

Larry Correia on current events

Bill Nye- One day Neil DeGrasse Tyson declared “No one can make science more preachy and pedantic than I can!” and Bill Nye said “Hold my beer and watch this”. It’s like he tried to jump the shark and fell in its jaws. My Sex Junk is literally the worst thing ever made. My Sex Junk causes autism. My Sex Junk is worse than climate change. My Sex Junk made me renounce science and I immediately signed up for Gwyneth Paltrow’s blog to learn about the healing power of crystals. My 150 IQ daughter who wants to become a biochemist hates Bill Nye so much that she wants to someday win a Nobel Prize just so that she can insult him during her acceptance speech.
BWHAHAHAHA!!!

I suppose that’s the thing about shortcuts to piety. They do tend to stupefy.

I think you have to say 'stupidificate' now.

No defense for colleges’ speech ‘zones’

Americans should be disturbed that a government-funded educational institution would find it necessary or appropriate to corral First Amendment protections into designated areas lest anyone be unexpectedly confronted with an unpalatable opinion.

. . . .

California’s public colleges and universities shouldn’t need legislative intervention to persuade them to scrap rules that run afoul not only of the First Amendment but also of their mission as institutions of learning and ideas.

Aussie Bloke gets in a fight with a Tornado. Turns out pretty much as expected.

Facts? Evidence? PRIVILEGE!

... we assert that the evidence-based movement in health sciences constitutes a good example of microfascism at play in the contemporary scientific arena.

From the SF Comical?
Pics or it didn't happen.

Fred the Fourth

Darleen,
I just finished plowing through that paper. A dozen pages of nothing but assertions. But, in a paper all about the fascism of evidence, I suppose that's all to be expected.
My favorite bit comes near the start. A catalog of the political / philosophical horrors of the the 20th century that starts with Hitler and ends with Mussolini. Apparently there were no other questionable philosophies or tyrants that century. I guess that fits with the author's later assertion that History is Constructed.

Hal

Pics or it didn't happen.

Well, that is what that link is for.

Fred the Fourth

Hal,
It's the Chron. It's gonna take a lot more than a link to the actual article to convince me.
Anyone know a Fair Witness?

Hal

It's gonna take a lot more than a link to the actual article to convince me.


. . . . . ?????

You wanted to see the actuality, you have the link to do that, you and anyone else have nothing stopping you . . . 'course if the issue is fear of reality, the only advice that's ever turned up is that when reality throws you off, the best response is to climb back on and keep riding . . .
