I am alone with HackerBoy this weekend while Cruel Wife and Lemurita attend a weekend-long training regimen at a paramilitary youth organization outing for young women.  The boy and I have eaten pizza rolls, onion rings, Taco Bell™ (no horse meat was available when I requested it and they did not see humor in it), McDonald’s™, and spring rolls – a whole bag.

We watched a bit of Batman Begins but Hackerboy grew bored and wanted to watch “The Secret World of Arrietty“, which I gotta say was well done even if cliche.  I guess he’s just not old enough to appreciate the buildup of Christian Bale in training with Ra’s Al Ghul and the subsequent return to Gotham to stomp on the Scarecrow’s smug pretty-boy face.

Too bad Bale seems like such an asshole in real life, but who among us hasn’t given a poor showing?  American Psycho was pretty well done, I thought.  And I gotta respect his drive to do what he sets his mind to do (The Machinist).  His ideals… not so much.  But I do admire determination.

h/t to alert co-worker/Farker Black Lab on Amphetamines.  Simultaneously hilarious yet nauseating.  It’s like Popplers™.   Enjoy, veeshir, this one is for you.

I immediately thought of Aggie Sith when I saw this.  Immediately.  Darth Necklace.

Adding this in as an update to this post – Man Insists Girlfriend Wears Celebrity Masks When Having Sex.

Now, you could assume that the guy is a creepy perv and doesn’t deserve her.  It could be that he’s not telling the whole truth and she’s either a sheep or she’s fantastically ugly.  It could be several other things entirely.

But the question you really have to ask yourself is why The Guardian is even putting this stuff out there.  No, I know they’re doing it for the ratings and the shock factor, that’s not at issue.  They’re putting it out there because readers are eating it up, and that says a lot of sad things.

Oh, and you should ask why she’s still with him regardless, unless she really is a sheep.

Opinions Mixed as State Takeover Looms in Detroit

Now, you would think that if you took white man out of the equation and let the black man do all the amazing shit he’s gonna do without the oppression faced every day, that perhaps Detroit could be a shining beacon on a hill.  No, it’s a bubbling busted open sewer line spraying fecal matter into the air for whole city blocks.  It’s corrupt and run by idiots.

“All of us agree that the city has serious financial challenges which must be addressed, however I fundamentally disagree with taking measures that disenfranchise the families I represent in Detroit,” Peters said, in a statement.

Manage?  Disenfranchise?  Personally I think they ought to level the city and start fresh.  It’s just that screwed up.

TSA says Hiring Freeze could Double Waits

Let’s be honest, okay?  We didn’t have TSA for the first 32 years of my life and we got along fine without being groped or yelled at or intimidated.

Well, I’d surely like to believe this is a legit story that went down the way they say it did and that it isn’t a glurge story.   If he DID walk ten miles in wintry snow to get a job, he needs to be cloned because we need more people like that.
