…You know, I’m just going to take the rest of the morning off. [UPDATED]

Maybe I’ll be in a better mood after lunch. Everybody, take a break. Smoke ’em if you got ’em, and don’t live in an urban area where’ll you hunted down by the cops. Hit the freaking tip jar, so I can take the blessed thing down.

[UPDATE]: Alternatively, I could just go to RedState and reap a deadly harvest among the trolls; that seems to have perked me right up. Hit the freaking tip jar anyway; this is one of my weirder pledge drives.

    maybe you should come up with some interesting goals for you to do as you reach pledge goals? Kind of like stretch goals on a Kickstarter.

  • acat says:

    Good point, Heartbreak.

    “At X, Moe will get a Kinnect.”
    “At X+n, Moe put a web cam on top of the Kinnect so he can video himself bowling or whatever.”
    “At X+n+n, Moe will turn on the web cam.”
    “At X+n+n+n, Moe will give us the IP address of the web cam”


    p.s. I no longer frequent Red State, but have heard there are more and worse trolls these days, in part due to the use of Disqus …

    “Keeping the kids out of my hair” is often the most interesting goal I can think of.
    (Let me highly recommend the Kinect for that purpose.)

    acat, I miss u at RedState, glad to see you are here at times. The dumping of the 1st Amendment to appease the thugs engaged in thuggery would have been right up your ally and well – you were never gloomy. I would say if you need entertainment – you should lurk and read Moe’s bloody harvest – the comedy was better than anything Adam Sandler has done in his life.

    tnfriend, Red State Management have chosen to not respond to my questions regarding security and Disqus. I have been alternately ignored, falsely accused of petty b.s., and fobbed off on techies who don’t understand the question… but not answered.

    I have been watching the discussion on other sites, and have to say it’s about what I expected from the Dems … You read Zombie Blog, right? This strikes me as the flipside to the whole “bitter clingers” episode. Specifically, both go to the (european / liberal) mindset that the ruling class create laws in part to keep the ruled-over class from revolting. This mindset has worked, more or less, but … based on European (especially French) history, when it stops working, it does so catastrophically.

    The U.S. model, where laws are more about ensuring a peaceful transition between ruling groups and where every group is allowed a say seems a better approach. We really haven’t lost our heads the way the French did …
