Farnsworth M Muldoon

The hot cheese gun would be the perfect crumpet dressing accessory.

Black Ball

'Every person who attends an AFL match should be able to experience the incredible sense of belonging that we associate with footy no matter their gender identity or sexual preferences.'

Having attended many AFL matches over the years, I haven't yet witnessed anyone singled out and ridiculed over their identity or sexual preferences. Yes the umpires have been called blind poofters, but that's part and parcel. Get the Scold O Matic ready Mr Thompson, I shall report for conditioning.

Just with the accelerated coral thing also, that could lead one to get the sack.

SR-71 speedcheck story

Well, you would, wouldn’t you? I mean, how often do you get the chance?

Captain Nemo

Only 100 “diversity” bureaucrats?

And right on cue, the first reply is an SJW woman (her Twitter bio says environmental justice/energy justice - UMich, natch) saying his message is "incredibly problematic". Of course it's problematic, dear. I've heard facts are these days.

David

And right on cue, the first reply is an SJW woman... saying his message is “incredibly problematic”.

The victimhood may be delusional, but the cost of pretending to fix this imaginary problem is quite real - and for some students, often the very students supposedly being helped, crippling. And yet the dupes, the ones saddled with debt for a useless pseudo-service, side with their exploiters.

As hustles go, it’s quite impressive.

What is it with all these Earth-Moon firepole doubters? Just build the damn thing!

They also have an app for smartphones.

I love Fridays.

I’m not quite sure what the moral of the story is, but if you’re planning a five-day off-meds psychotropic bender, resulting in transvestism and potato-hoarding, maybe you shouldn’t do it in an Eastleigh Travelodge.

100 Diversicrats will be unable to solve the problem, such is the pernicious, entrenched, implicit nature of The Enemy.

110 will be hired, only to find that The Enemy has redoubled its efforts and burrowed even further into ever more subtle, hidden, secretive recesses of word choice, clothing preferences, and playlists.

PhDs in Diversity Science dominate doctorates awarded Nationwide.

Dateline 2038: The University of Michigan breaks ground on its $100 billion Diversity Administration Complex, partially meeting demands of student activists to "fully fund" its stated commitment to diversity.

Captain Nemo

As hustles go, it’s quite impressive.

It is, until you think of the students from genuinely disadvantaged backgrounds who could benefit hugely if that $11 million dollars was spent on providing them with things like scholarships. I expect such a scheme would also increase the diversity on campus in a much more beneficial way than spending it on bureaucratic paper pushers will.

Tiny robots build tiny house.

Or the Diversity Administration Madrasa, the administrators having come to the realization that Islam is the unifying global system for equality and racial justice that they had been seeking all along.

And nanorobots have nanoer robots and so on ad infinitum.

Said SJW is also a graduate instructor (whatever that is) at the University of Michigan so not a surprise that she defends the bullshit.

When you spot buskers covering your song.

What did I watch/hear? Should I be proud or ashamed that I'm lost? And why do people who don't need glasses wear glasses with no glass? Am I old now?

Farnsworth M Muldoon

From the department of "You can't win for losing".

Pogonip

David, have you bought a hot cheese dispenser to go with the Incinerator?

Pogonip

Farnsworth’s comment reminds me of a Groucho Marx line from, I think, “A Night at the Opera”—“Ladies and gentlemen!—I guess that covers most of you.”

Hal

And why do people who don't need glasses wear glasses with no glass? Am I old now?

Don't worry, about age, age has nothing to do with it.

The issue is merely the lack of IQ of those insisting on being seen wearing glasses frames, especially when just the frames. One bit of commentary--albeit amongst masses of such---does note that the result of idiots wanting to demonstrate being idiots is that they do indeed prove themselves hipsters rather than adults.

Of all the claims of "irony" involved, the only irony is when these insistently tasteless and devoid of style fantasize that they could somehow be mistaken for resembling any sort of elegance or sophistication.

Quite a number of years ago in the US there was an absolutely satirical publication called "the preppy handbook". Directly in response, the hipsters of that time completely missed the point, took the open satire as being totally serious and absolutely what they should be seen following, utterly abandoned any trace of taste or style---they were already missing the clue, after all---and insistently started the claim that as they were to be called preppys, they were also to be considered something other than utterly credulous chumps who to this day blatantly define the frantically lowest of the middle class---and with cheap fabrics and ease of manufacturing, the underside of the lower/working classes are also now being seen wearing the same costuming, and having the same result.

In time, those who were being called the preppys shifted into being called the yuppys, now they're called the hipsters, and in some years from now they'll be called something else.

Whatever the title of the moment, the peon by any other name will remain a pretentious git that we adults wind up herding.

Are you getting irritated about GDPR emails? Then this is for you:

“Are you getting irritated about GDPR emails?”

For some of America’s biggest newspapers and online services, it’s easier to block half a billion people from accessing your product than comply with Europe’s new General Data Protection Regulation.

The Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, and The New York Daily News are just some telling visitors that, "Unfortunately, our website is currently unavailable in most European countries."

A&E Television Networks has narrowed its EU blockade to limit the damage to its audience. Websites for its History and Lifetime channels greet the European visitors with a message that its "content is not available in your area," whereas the website for youth-focused Viceland remains accessible.

Leaving this tinpot Byzantium can't come soon enough. They're determined to turn Europe into the third world.

On a lighter note, peak Japan.
