“I’m guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk,” Charles Wick said. “It was very complicated.”

If someone does the “Fine, you’re right, I’m clearly a terrible person, I’m Satan, I’m the worst person alive, I should just die” thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.


Although it is outside the purview of this organization to offer personal advice, we can say -- without assuming any liability -- that previous experience indicates (and recent market studies corroborate) that given the present condition of the marketplace, continuing with your present course of action is likely to result in substantial in

Shit, I want a burka.  They look like they'd be a sight more protective from the sun and somewhat cooler than jeans.  Air circulation for the win.

Yeah, they're actually very practical in the desert. I've already decided that if I ever make it back to Burning Man, I'm bringing a couple of burkas.
If I ever permanently move back to a desert I will be adding articles of male Arab attire to my wardrobe.

Dude, I think I was outside for a grand total of twentyfive minutes, and that's TOPS,  in only ten minute increments, and I feel burned the fuck up from the sun and heat.

Child posts

Internet froths

Child cries


that's what I'm talking about. We're going to see this happen a bunch more in the coming year, with increasing degrees of support or outrage depending on whether the kid annoyed us personally. There will even be a short-hand slang word for this phenomenon. But I think that's still a few months off.


By the way, this article is not about the girl getting trolled, the point of the article is to make you say "Supporters of Michelle Bachmann are would-be child rapists."

We're not talking about people being garden-variety mean on the internet. We're talking about people threatening a child with rape because she wrote a letter they disagree with.

This *is* garden variety mean for any woman who manages to get the attention of the wrong parts of the internet.  Men can expect death threats instead.  The problem is a lot deeper than the politics.
Horseshit. We aren't talking about "the wrong parts of the internet". We're talking about political bloggers. People who, in theory, should be held to a higher standard than a youtube comment thread. It's a good thing that there isn't a history of violence associated with the Tea Party.... oh wait...

Wait, you think that political bloggers are held to some standard of ethics?

They're just the 21st century first-world version of mentally ill homeless people screaming prophecy from the seedy streetcorners.

I can't believe that anybody is either surprised OR shocked by this.

FFS, Requia is actually RIGHT. My world has been turned on its ear. This girl (and everyone else who wants to get along in The Future) had better sack the fuck up. This world is no place for the squeamish or the righteous.

Some yahoo yelled at me, saying 'GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH', and I thought, "I'm feeling generous today.  Why not BOTH?"
