Oh, dear.  I hope none of you have pleasant memories of the 90's TV show HerculesQuote from the actor's FB page:

Ferguson riots have very little to do with the shooting of the young man. It is an excuse to be the losers these animals truly are. It is a tipping point to frustration built up over years of not trying, but blaming everyone else, The Man, for their failures. Itís always someone elseís fault when you give up. Hopefully this is a reminder to the African Americans ( I always thought we just Americans. Oh, well.) that their President the voted in has only made things worse for them, not better.

No, that was Bhode_Sativa.  The Lamanite was "we should all be hunter-gatherers, the herds will migrate where they are needed" and "the BiP is racist".

I remember we were joking about that when we came up with the Latin translation of Black Iron Prison, and then, just as sure as Poe's Law...

Unfortunately, we've already had the "11/12 of people should die" wander through, and that was, what, six years ago?

Was that the Lamanite, or was he another "civilization is useless" dude?

He is fucking the wrong end of the pig.

I'm not sure I've ever heard that before...

I always had you pegged for well-hung.

To be fair, you're pretty good at pegging people.

I'm no psychiatrist, but does it seem weird to you that von professes previous same-sex relationships, and yet chooses "faggot" as a pejoritive?  There seems to be a lot of self-hate going on in his head.

Did she for reals send a written response?  Is it amusing enough to share?

Oh noes!  What will you ever do now?

Hey, if Andy Kaufman fell for it....

So, interesting disconnect this morning.  One of my co-workers was bragging they did the ice bucket challenge already.  I said, "Oh, that's cool. How much did you donate?"  They replied, "At the time, I didn't realize you donated, too," and just let it at that.  As if, it's completely impossible to donate to ALS after the fact.  Like, "I already did the thing, and I'm done thinking about it."

Like there's a specific window of time when you can donate to a charity.

What's interesting is that Mrs LMNO and I know several family members who have done it, and none of them nominated us.  Maybe they know a thing or two about us.

It changed over time.  It originally started as "Ice Water, or donate $100."

Then, it changed to "Ice Water and donate $10, or donate $100."

Now, it's "Ice Water and donate whatever you want, or bitch about it on Facebook."

Someone posted something to the effect of "How many buckets of ice do I have to pour on my head to raise awareness of Ferguson?"

But I feel that's a false equivalence -- I am perfectly capable of being aware of both ALS and Ferguson.  It's not an "either pay attention to this, or pay attention to that" kind of thing.  If you allow that kind of thinking, then you can always raise it to the next level... "Why are you paying attention to that, and not to the Ebola crisis/Syria/ISIS..."

In fact, someone has already calculated the amount of water being poured over people's heads, because don't you know there's a massive drought going on right now?
