‘It’s a Man.’

Messing about with Fallout 4 again, of course.

…and it’s not available! Huh. Unless I’m missing it here.

The second day of the second edition of the 7th Sea Second Edition kickstarter pledge drive.

goal-thermometer Yeah. Kind of an unwieldy title.

Anyway, the first day of the second iteration of the 7th Sea Kickstarter pledge drive is going well. As always, let me remind folks: if there’s a bunch of people out there who need the money more, well, I’m not hurting for cash. Although I’m always happy to shake the tip jar, of course.

I’m trying to decide how long to run this one, if only because the daily posts start clogging up the feed.  A… week, I guess? Or until I hit $500, I suppose.  See, if I had been smart about this I would have screwed my courage to the sticking place and made the goal $1,000: at that level my wife’s PC gets a half-page splash page and a color picture in one of the books.  But a grand is a lot of household money to put up and I wanted to lock in the current present. Ach, well: that tier is going to fill up soon anyway.

So at what point do we call this a domestic Islamist terror attack?

Oh, right. That’s scheduled for the Fifth of Never, as S.M. Stirling might say.

They’ll go with ‘lone wolf,’ which has the ‘advantage’ of being technically accurate while ignoring that groups such as ISIS have been looking for suitable ‘lone wolves’ for some time now. …And this is the point where the conversation gets tangled up and people end up glaring at each other, so let me just say that we will not resolve the problem until we admit that there is a problem. And by ‘we’ I mean ‘the current administration.’

Sounds like @LifeAtPurdue includes some ‘good,’ old-fashioned rape threats.

Jeez.  White people:

A Purdue University staff member is being investigated after he allegedly threatened to rape pro-life women during an online debate about the campus pro-life club’s recent campaign.

The Purdue Students for Life group has been facing a heavy backlash this week after its members put up posters around campus that focused on how the abortion industry targets black women and their unborn babies for abortions. In coordination with Black History Month, the campaign posters read “Hands Up, Don’t Abort” and “Black Children are an Endangered Race” and included the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter.<

[snip]

Then on Wednesday, the team at Students for Life reported the discovery of a violent threat against pro-lifers by Purdue staff member Jamie Newman. Newman reportedly called for the rape of pro-life women in an online comment on Live Action News.

You can imagine what happened next: yup, this week’s Captain Dumbsh*t not only threatened to commit rape, he gave out the telephone numbers of the local police department and FBI, because Captain Dumbsh*t didn’t understand that Purdue University has to take this kind of thing seriously. No, really, they do.  Especially when Captain Dumbsh*t finished his threat with “*giggles* (like a girl).”  Because while you may or may not think that people in general aren’t taking the threat of rape seriously, it’s pretty clear that Captain Dumbsh*t here didn’t. But why should he?  The dude assumed that he could say anything he liked about conservatives, after all…

‘Crimson and Clover.’

You’ll have to indulge me for the light posting: I’ve been running a fever and sore throat all day. So I plan to take some drugs and get some sleep. Sleep is good…

The ‘Nine Lives’ trailer, and I apologize in advance.

(H/T: Multiplex) Who thought that this was a good idea?

Does Christopher Walken need money, or something? – Because if a hat was being passed around I would have tossed in twenty bucks.  Fifty, if I got the OK to use house money. This looks… this looks like a movie that got made because somebody lost a bet.

Good night.

It would probably be best if I called it an evening.

My RedState post on PA AG Kathleen Kane.

Found here. Short version… wow. The woman’s been indicted and disbarred, and she’s STILL leading the pack in the Democratic primary for PA Attorney General.  God loves me… well, He loves everybody, of course.  But this is awesome.

Marco Rubio and the Football of Vengeance.

I was only going to chuckle about this Marco Rubio ad, but then I got to 1:27 and then I realized that I’d have to post it.  I seriously have to. It’s, like, a geek obligation and everything.

PS: Dr. Ben Carson is a remarkably nice man. I mean, it’s like there’s no malice or spite in him at all. What the hell is he doing in American politics?

This is a fun game that my readers can play.

The question was:

And these were my two immediate answers.

I’m open to other opinions on this one, though.  The Zevon one in particular may simply be hardcore bittersweet nostalgia on my part; Warren Zevon was one of the defining voices of my early adulthood. I still miss him.
