What’s worse is these assholes think this is justified.

I don’t know how many times I’ve heard the argument from fundamentalist right-wingers that killing abortion doctors is justified because it saves unborn babies. And yet those unborn babies’ lives — many of which aren’t even viable yet, or would be stillborn, or a danger to the mother’s life — are more valuable to these …

Put the lime in the tequilla and drink it all up

We’re having Mark and Sara over for barbecue and Stephanie Zvan’s Perfect Margaritas. We’re cheating by using bottled lime juice, but it’s 100% pure lime juice not some crazy chemical extract. Hopefully it won’t lose too much from it. I fully intend to update this post as the day goes on and our liquor stock …

How to increase profit margins in the most asshat-ish way possible

DuWayne said it best in the comments on this thread: Holy shit what fucking fun it is north of the border. Yeah, no kidding bro. Canada’s latest foray into copyright just pegged my rage meter yet again. This time, they’re telling the blind, dyslexic, and otherwise disabled to fuck off and suffer when it comes …

Blood of the lamb, motherfucker.

You all need to read this ASAP. Not just read, but buy. This comic is amazing. It’s all online for free, but I swear to you that I will buy it to have as a coffee table book. Because oh my fucking Christ, is it brilliant. Go read Jesus Christ – In the Name of …

Atheists’ Creeds

I sort of like the idea of a defined creed to which one must adhere if they are to lead a just and noble life. However, I have a bit of a problem with this one, in that it’s a direct ripoff of the Ten Commandments. It’s cute and all, but invites religious people to …

Go big or go home!

Idiots go for the big insults right off the bat, comparing people to fascists or communists before even getting their arguments out of the starting gate. DuWayne Brayton takes it upon himself to provide some examples of his newest addendum to Godwin’s Law, which I’ve dubbed Brayton’s Corollary, and so you should all use it …

Computers, DVRs to be outlawed in Canada

The copyright row is heating up, after the Conference Board of Canada nearly wholly plagiarized the recommendations of the International Intellectual Property Association (IIPA) with regard to what Canada should do about infringement of copyrighted materials. Ignoring every recommendation of the report commissioned for this study, written by Law Professor Jeremy DeBeer, the IIPA — …

Some Canadian news

Here’s quick round-up of a few news tidbits salient to us Canucks. Former PM Brian Mulroney might be lying about his having represented Karlheinz Schreiber’s business interests in a trip he made to China in October 1993. The scandal is that he took three hundred grand from Schreiber to lobby for a project to have …

Awesome SSH tricks

Greg Laden’s having problems with his ScienceBlogs site‘s commenting (those problems being that Movable Type sucks), so he’s started posting stuff on his old WordPress site. Stuff like this great Linux Journal video, showing you how to spawn a GUI-based program on a remote server over SSH. I pointed out on that post’s comments, if …

False to fact and false to reason

Herein Keith Olbermann vivisects everything Cheney and his little whirlwind tour stands for. This deserves to be watched more than once. Or on a constant loop, if you’re a Dick. Update: and here’s the real reason Cheney’s sticking his bulbous head into every camera’s view — he’s actively shopping around his memoirs so as to …
