If they treat education like a product, they can't very well bitch when you act like a consumer.

May 21, 1941 - Malaclypse the Younger, a.k.a. Mal-2, and Gregory H. Hill Was Born

Our Lady of Discord personally inspired the author of our sacred Principia Discordia, the other exalted co-founder of Discordianism, who was also a revered member of the infamous 1960s Counterculture.

May 11, 1997 - Deep Blue Beat World Champion Chess Grand Master Garry Kasparov

Kasparov resigns after 19 moves in a game against Deep Blue, a chess-playing computer developed by scientists at IBM. This was the sixth and final game of their match, which Kasparov lost two games to one, with three draws.

AI has come a long way against MBI (Meat-based Intelligence) since 1997.
I guess Fox News the Ministry of Propaganda didn't want to devote all of their 'news coverage' to TFG's first criminal trail on Thursday. So, they included the following article:

"Las Vegas alien video's previously missed detail proves 'authenticity,' expert says: 'You can't deny it'"

As per this article:

"When a Las Vegas family told police they saw something "not human" in their backyard, they were not lying, a veteran crime scene recreation expert said.
Scott Roder, of Evidence Room Animation and Exhibits, used his expertise and motion tracking software to analyze the video of a purported UFO crash landing in Sin City in April 2023.
He told NewsNation they tried to "debunk" the responding officers' bodycam footage or prove something was added to the video.
Now, he said he is convinced there were two creatures creeping around the family's Las Vegas yard that night. "All of our results came back as authentic," Roder said. "There's no editing. That is an original video.""

If you can't trust the Ministry of Propaganda on stuff like this, who can you trust? Anyway, after spending who knows how much time getting here, from who knows where in the universe, it's perfectly understandable that alien space visitors would want visit Vegas for a little R&R. It's just too bad that, after navigating their way through the Milky Way, they couldn't find their way to the Las Vegas Strip. I'm sure any one of the many casinos there would have been more than happy to 'comp' them plenty of food, drinks, casino chips, and a luxury hotel suite for as long as they wanted to stay.

"RFK Jr. claims doctor said parasite 'ate' part of his brain"

As per this article:

"Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s campaign on Wednesday responded to a New York Times report that described an incident where the independent candidate claimed a doctor told him that a parasitic worm was found in his brain more than a decade ago.
In a 2012 deposition during a divorce from his second wife, Kennedy revealed that a doctor found a dead parasite in his brain -- one of multiple health conditions Kennedy said may have caused what he described in the deposition as "cognitive problems" he had experienced at the time, according to according to The New York Times."

And, further along in this article:

"Doctors interviewed by ABC News clarified that these types of parasites don't actually eat brain tissue. Rather, they absorb nutrients passively before dying."

I've heard some people say, 'All publicity is good publicity.' But, this headline leads me to believe that 'some people' are wrong. And, I have to wonder, why are those 'Doctors interviewed by ABC News' so certain that some, or maybe even a lot, of RFK Jr.'s brain wasn't eaten? I mean, I'm not the least bit surprised that this guy has had brain problems.

This, of course, is a logical piece of merch for the MAGAt minions. If they're going to wear diapers at their rallies, and claim that 'Real Men Wear Diapers,' it makes sense that they should buy a special brand.

So, here they are:   The Donald's Leak Protecting Adult Diapers][/b]

WARNING: They are pricey. And, they come with a disclaimer that says, *FOR NOVELTY USE ONLY*, but TFG should be advertised with the same warning.
High Weirdness / Snakes Almost On a Plane
May 07, 2024, 01:52:59 PM
I'm not a snake person. But, even if I were, my pants are, pretty much, the last place I would put one.

"Snakes almost on a plane: TSA discovers a bag with small snakes in passenger's pants"

As per this article:

"According to an X post by the Transportation Security Administration, officers at the Miami International Airport found the small bag of snakes hidden in a passenger's trousers on April 26 at a checkpoint."

Now, I can't help but wonder if this passenger told the TSA officers that they were 'emotional support snakes.'

I can't remember having ever actually watched a Ministry of Propaganda video, much less recommending one to someone else. But, this take-down of Drama Queen Greene is outstanding:

I haven't been to Maine in many years, as the last time I was there, in early June, it was closed. (Well, in truth, it was mostly closed.) So, I don't really know much about the place. But, given that they continue reelecting 'concerned' Senator Susan Collins, I've never thought of Maine as being a 'blue' state. However, after last year's mass shooting, it appears that some of their citizens are taking gun safety a little more seriously.

"Maine governor signs off on new gun laws, mental health supports in wake of Lewiston shootings"

As per this article:

"AUGUSTA, Maine -- Democratic Gov. Janet Mills on Friday signed into law a suite of gun safety legislation approved by lawmakers after the deadliest mass shooting in state history, expanding background checks for private sales of weapons, bolstering the state's "yellow flag" law, criminalizing the transfer of guns to prohibited people and expanding mental health crisis care.

The governor told lawmakers during her State of the State address that doing nothing was not an option after an Army reservist with an assault rifle killed 18 people and injured 13 others in Lewiston on Oct. 25.

The bills drew opposition from Republicans who accused Democrats, who control both legislative chambers, of using the tragedy to advance proposals, some of which had been previously defeated. Mills said Friday the proposals would improve public safety while respecting the state's long traditions of gun ownership and outdoor heritage."

So, although there's still much more to be done, at least the state of Maine is headed in the right direction. It's just a shame that it took mass murder to encourage them to make a little effort to address this deadly issue.

I realized I had been negligent in my study of comparative religions when I saw The Big Lebowski listed on one of the cable movie stations. I did know this flick was the inspiration for Dudeism, but had never watched it. And, had I known this movie was a Coen Brothers' project, I would have made a greater effort to do so.

I found this film to be pretty strange, right from the beginning. But, the intensity of the character Walter Sobchak, as portrayed by John Goodman, immediately reminded me of a wounded Vietnam veteran I knew years ago. "Crazy John" had that kind of intensity, and my friends and I believed having several square inches of his skull blown away in 'Nam just might have had something to do with it. Anyway, it makes me suspect that the character Walter Sobchak was based upon a real, living person.     

It took me until the very end of the movie, but I now believe I have an understanding of, and a respect for Dudeism.
"Trump Supporters Show Their Love: 'Real Men Wear Diapers'"

As per this article:

"After noticing a trend of pro Donald diaper merch at rallies throughout this year, I hit up President Trump's latest event in rural Pennsylvania last weekend with the express purpose of seeing if his faithful were still flying their diaper flag. And let me tell you, it did not disappoint.

Not only were there tons of diaper hats, shirts, stickers and actual diapers themselves, but one group had a massive probably six foot "Diaper Don" Flag that they were waving in line."

I admit, I did not see this one coming. But, this rally was held in Schnecksville, PA, a place one has to drive through to get to somewhere else. And, I realize few will get the analogy, but Schnecksville is considered to be the 'Lower Slobbovia' of the Lehigh Valley. So, I guess the fact that this happened in  Schnecksville does make a kind of sense.

Have a Delightful Discoflux in the YOLD 3190!

Yes, that Hodge and Podge, Yin and Yang thing is happening again. Confusion is slowly growing in the depths of this Season of Discord. And, I'm pretty sure the customary way of celebrating this Holyday Holiday is to find some disco disks, and dance the night away. I suspect polyester leisure suits are appreciated, but entirely optional.

According to Rolling Stone you can find a notable selection of disco songs right here:   Best Disco Songs of All Time

Selection No. 5 is a surprise to me, as I never associated The Rolling Stones with disco music. But, I probably wasn't paying attention.

Hail Eris!
It's happening again in Pennsylvania. And, the strangest thing about it is that Pennsylvania isn't even a 'blue state.'

"Can These Clowns Not Find A Single Republican Who Lives In Pennsylvania To Run For Senate In Pennsylvania?"

As per this article:

"This time around, the GOP nominee battling incumbent Sen. Bob Casey (D) will be hedge fund millionaire David McCormick, who lost to Oz back in the 2022 Republican primary; as we noted last week, McCormick overcame that by running unopposed this year. The most notable news about that election was that Zombie candidate Nikki Haley got 17 percent of the vote even though she ended her campaign weeks ago.
However, we kind of skipped over a thing about McCormick last week, because we were mainly focused on Haley. Like "Dr." Oz, McCormick isn't so much from Pennsylvania as from another state, but this time it's Connecticut. We regret the oversight."

But, on the plus side, this one isn't known to be a puppy killer.

May 1, 1776 - The Ancient Illuminated Seers of Bavaria (A.I.S.B.) Was Reformed

Brother Spartacus thus continued the world's oldest and most successful conspiracy, in Ingolstadt, Electorate of Bavaria.

And, of course, it is only the merest of coincidences that the U.S. of A. declared independence that same year, and that International Workers' Day is also celebrated on May 1st.

I think it's only a matter of time, now that the judge in TFG's Hush Money Trial has threatened incarceration for further gag order violations.

So, enjoy The Jail Trump Rock
