It's a shame there isn't a circle in the Inferno for The Gratiutiously Rude.

So THAT'S why I'm sitting funny.

Almost like there's something on the chair, right?

YES.

Like a rugose, antediluvian... Presence...

I don't know if you're familiar with the world of Tekumel but here's an introduction to their gods.

Meet them in a silver mask or ask them if they'd like to talk to their ancestors personally.

Tell them you dug up these metal plates in the back yard, and pull out a hat with a couple of quartz crystals in it...

That's mormons.

You know that, and I know that, but you think they (necessarily) would?

Or tell them about this "Xenu" guy you had the most unusual dream about.

I.E. steal shamelessly from the classics and pawn it off on them as new revelations. Brew up some Flavor-Aid and serve it to 'em while you're at it.

Deal has passed the Senate and House, and is on the way to Obama.

Meanwhile, our own Senator Graham weighs in:
Quote"We won't be the last political party to overplay our hand. It might happen one day on the Democratic side. And if it did, would Republicans, for the good of the country, kinda give a little? We really did go too far. We screwed up. But their response is making things worse, not better."

Yeah, well, "good of the country" my fucking ass, you tool. Your party catered to the Teabaggers to the point where they shut down the fucking government, cost us billions of dollars, and embarrassed us in front of the world. And the great solution to this is another fucking last-minute deal to kick the can down the road another couple months so you assholes can pull this shit all over again.

You want to make me feel better about this? Give me Cruz's head on a pike. Make an example of the little fucker so Rubio or Paul or one of the other fruitloops maybe has second thoughts on playing this idiot game again.

No, on second thought, yes, I still want Cruz's empty skull on a pike, but fuck the GOP. Nothing they can do will make me feel better about this.

Its an interesting dynamic interaction between risk, production and distribution but... eh, at some point i was just playing to see what the ending or "resolution" would be, and like, it has no ending at all, so that was kind of dissapointing, no closure.  :sad:

That's what I was afraid of.

Cool at the start, but it just runs itself after a certain point, and you just watch the numbers go up. (there's a moral there, maybe, but I'm not sure what...)

This is all SO preferable to puns.  :boring:

Hrm, I can't decide whether this is whistling past the graveyard or not:

http://readersupportednews.org/opinion2/277-75/19899-breaking-stop-fretting-the-debt-ceiling-crisis-is-over

QuoteThe Senate bill is a deal to lift the debt ceiling and reopen the government, without a ransom payment. That agreement is set to be announced, but the contours, which were described to me by an aide, will satisfy the Democratic demand not to make concessions for raising the debt ceiling or reopening the government. The House leadership, as everybody on Capitol Hill now expects, will quickly take up the Senate bill and put this debacle behind them. Rounding up the votes should not be a problem. The entire Democratic caucus will support it if needed, leaving Republicans to find just a handful of votes, well within the number that never wanted to shut down the government to begin with.

Jesus.  Shut up.

Hrm.

I guess I'm not permitted to say that I fucking agree with everything you said in that letter, then.

This fucking thread is like having Hugh and Malaul back.

Seriously.  It's fucking brain damaged and has caused me to rethink my opinion of Pere Ubu, and has reinforced my already incredibly negative view of RWHN.  The puns aren't even CLEVER, for fuck's sake.

It's worse than a fucking Piers Anthony book.

Um.

Well, if you're going to base your opinion of me on a dozen or so posts and a couple lame (I'll admit it) puns, I guess that's that.

I mean, I'd like it if we got along, but I'm not here to make you happy. I'm here because I was hoping to contribute to the conversation and get at least a bit of a respite from the Pink spaggy bible-based swineherd I deal with on a daily basis. And maybe share some creative weirdness.

eh *shrug*. Can't please everyone.

(And isn't "fucking Piers Anthony book" pretty much a redundancy, IYKWIM?)

Do you EVER get busted?

At one point I had a 101% chance of it, and nothing happened.

Somehow this makes me think simultaneously of Transactional Analysis and Orwell's essay "Politics And The English Language".

Something about communicating Adult <--> Adult and making the message clear as possible, I think.
