midland school letter

here is my letter to the midland school district.

'While it is well and good that you post a distancing letter on your main page, you say some things that are demonstrably false, there. "Mr. McCance was not acting as an agent of the school board, but as a private citizen when this comment was posted. This post does not reflect the thoughts of the board or administration of the Midland School District." While freedom of speech guarantees such vileness to be protected, it doesn't mean that there aren't any consequences. While McCance may have been acting without official capacity, he is still a member of the school board, and thus is able to (I assume) enact and debate school policy. By decrying the wearing of purple "It pisses me off though that we make a special purple fag day for them." a sane person might be led to believe that he is not acting in the best interest of the students. How can a public official claim, in private, to hate children, and still be given the trust needed to serve on the school board? "The district strives to foster an environment that discourages all forms of bullying and an environment that encourages a safe and productive educational climate of all of our students. The district is very diligent in pursuing and addressing bullying of any variety on our campuses." Saying that you don't condone or support what McCance said in private isn't "fostering an environment that discourages all forms of bullying" - inaction of good people is worse than the actions of bad people. Cyberbullying is a readily identifiable criminal act: "when the Internet, [...] [is] used to send or post text or images intended to hurt or embarrass another person." aI think we can agree that constantly repeating the needlessly aggressive word "fag" and saying that he is glad that they "get aids and die" is assuredly "intended to hurt or embarrass another person." At the very least, the passive-aggressive nature of McCance needs to be placed under scrutiny, and all arguments he has made for or against school policy should be placed under suspicion to ensure that his private beliefs are not influencing his public decisions. Thank you for your time.'

Trent Reznor is my freakin hero

New Nine Inch Nails album released TODAY, from Los Angeles. Completely free - even the high quality ones!

Here's why this is awesome. They're as torrents for the HQ ones. Now a lot of people are gunna download this that aren't really nin fans, just because it's free. I have a feeling this is going to be an amazing album, and as such, will probably convince people who weren't fans before to go buy previous albums (even the $5 ones). It's brilliant marketing strategy!

Seeing as how i've bought almost every Halo put out, this is, as it states on the site, a great thank you for me, personally.

And i'm gunna be getting the multitrack files, so expect remix links in here soon!

15 years? they could do worse.

In austria, a man held his daughter captive for 24 years in a basement in a very large house. There were other family members living at the house, including the man's wife.

The story says that he could get a maximum of 15 years in prison. He is 73, but that shouldn't change anything. He should get life in prison, and they should do everything possible to ensure he stays alive for a very long time. In solitary confinement.

Evidently rape trumps other charges, in Austria, as that's what they're gunna nail him to the wall for.

Another sad story of prayer

11 year old girl dies waiting for her parents prayers to be answered - a doctor and medicine could have saved her life easily.

i've been dancing around posting this for a half hour... it's got me so angry i can't even think of a way to express it.

They SHOULD remove the other kids from the parents. they'd be better off with another couple that wants to take care of a child but can't have one.

What happens when i make up a sect of christianity that says it's ok to kill non-christians in the name of god. I'd then be a holy-warrior, and immune to prosecution, right?


remove these people from society. Put them in JAIL.

An interesting note on the previous post:

To be honest, even though it was covered by a load of freshly washed towels, Psychopathia Sexualis was actually closer than the book i picked up first, by a couple of feet. But when i realized this and went back and grabbed it, i stopped. I mentioned that it was NSFW - but i don't think that's the real reason. Why did i post about having a book about anarchy but not post about having a book about Psychology - even if it is a book about sexual deviancy and sexual degenerates? I've read both almost cover to cover more than once...

I think it's strange, don't you?

On another note, this little DIY device can literally pull electricity out of thin air! and it doesn't even violate any laws of thermodynamics! I sent it over to Techskeptic, but he hasn't gotten back to me yet. I think he's a busy sort of guy...

internet book meme thing:

on whitecoatunderground, PalMD was tagged by someone to do this meme:

  • Go to page 123 of the nearest book.
  • Find the 5th sentence.
  • Write down the next 3 sentences.
so i decided to give it a shot!

"have one or two cars positioned at crucial intersections within sight of the board. The ground crew should monitor oncoming traffic and maintain radio contact with the lookout on the board. Do not use popular CB or FM channels; there are many other frequencies to choose from." - from Recipes For Disaster.
So there you have it. Pretty dull :-( Oh well, maybe next time a textbook will be closer or something. At least it wasn't... hmmm! What about the second closest book? Yeah Psychopathia Sexualis isn't safe for work, and i don't think instructional manuals and/or programming guides/textbooks would be that fascinating. Nothing like Smallpox, for sure. :-D

Jesus in third place in england

This says that jesus ranks below two other people. I've never heard of richard branson, either. Hmm. I liked reading it though. it'd be grounds for a lynching in the US, wouldn't it?

1-up mushrooms

So those white speckled red mushrooms of mario bros and world of warcraft fame have a name. They do exist! they're called Fly Agaria. The greek soldiers used to take this mild hallucinogen prior to entering battle to get something called "bear shirts" - or as we know it today, Berserk. They'd take these mushrooms, and go batshit crazy on the battlefield, ripping through sheilds like animals and completely demoralizing the enemy forces.

Research found in "Acts of War"

Incest was cool back before moses.

But before sin had a chance to mess things up bad, people could marry a close relative and not worry about the effects to their kids. Once sin and death started adding flaws to a person's genetic code, God in His wisdom made some rules against marrying close relatives. God is SO SMART!


This means that the entrance of sin into the world caused humanity's once-perfect "genes" (the stuff in you that determines things like height, eye-color, looks, intelligence, etc.) to become more and more imperfect with time.

Since close relatives have similar flaws, then the flaw would be highlighted and emphasized in any kids they might have. For instance, if two close relatives had the characteristic of a really big nose, then chances are if they married and had a kid -- he would have a super shnoz that would make Pinocchio jealous.

I recently found the Skeptics Annotated Bible... and i must say, it's fantastic!


So i just realized, calling evolutionary biologists "neo-darwinists" is the same thing as calling christians "Neo-jews"
They're just jews who decided to update their views to encompass other stuff. Idiots.

Haha Ben Stein.

"Assuming it all did happen by Random Mutation and Natural Selection, where did the laws of gravity come from." Ben Stein(AKA BS) 1/3rd down the page in the yellowish box. The actual quote goes much further than that, in that it gets dumber and dumber. This is great. i can't believe it! I didn't know stupid could infect so thoroughly.

For the record, reading about this has given me such bad gas i think i burst an intestine.

Omg, would you just STFU already?

I understand that no one knows how to parent anymore. I get it. But to take the time to write the FCC about a commercial you saw during the superbowl is obnoxious. No one freaking cares if you're never going to watch ABC again. You're not hurting anyone. Seriously. It's FREE PROGRAMMING.

What world do you live in that I have to listen to the incessant whining of the "moral majority"? I dislike it, so much so that I'm trying to figure out what to do about it. I wish i could put excerpts here, but the document is in PDF format, so be forewarned. Here it is.

As you'll read, the moral mentally challenged majority write in ad nauseum about Desperate Housewives' programming. And commercials.

My favorite one was "i didn't see the rest because i was busy telling my children to cover their eyes" and another one saying "I didn't have time to find the remote and had to jump up to change the channel on the TV"

You parents, like that... you're damaging your children by saying that sex is unnatural, that it shouldn't be embraced, and that it's naughty to look at, or even ask about. THAT IS DAMAGING. Stop it.
