It’s sad, but it had to happen. Minnesota and Wisconsin are two Northern states, with similar past reputations as progressive and lefty, but we’ve grown apart, and it’s time for a divorce.
Jordan Owen and Davis Aurini claim to be making a full length feature film, a documentary about the wickedness of Anita Sarkeesian called The Sarkeesian Effect. Dave Futrelle asks whether this isn’t all just an elaborate practical joke, because the two are hilariously incompetent at making simple videos. Their latest is a poorly lit, static video of the two of them justifying donations to their Patreon account, in which they used a directional microphone that only picked up Owen’s voice, so every time Aurini speaks, there is no sound, just his face flapping.
I normally don’t read or watch blogs or youtube videos with titles along the lines of “PZ Myers is a …”; there are so many of them! And they’re so boring and repetitive and vacuous! But I was stranded in an airport all day yesterday, I was boreed, so I did read Luciano’s “P.Z. Myers Is a Dishonest Social Justice Warrior Who Doesn’t Know What ‘Atheism’ Means”. One small part was so funny it inspired me to create art.
I can tell that Rebecca Watson is running scared. She is so ashamed and intimidated by the fact that Dr Eliza Sutton has accused unnamed Skepchicks and named FtBer of transmitting STDs (she might do it again!) that she’s forced to recant and admit that there are many good reasons not to attend her Quiz-O-Tron in San Francisco on 25 October.

We should also judge their fitness for office by how healthy they keep their head octopus.
