    I think the ob/gyn gives out copies of What to Expect when You’re Expecting as well. So, I’m guessing your mom has that book too.

    I’m guessing Wasink is popular with the National Restaurant Association? I mean, assuming they’re not still denying the connection between calories ingested and weight gain. (Or with modern science, possibly…[Read more]

    Yep. The fact is, medicine is great when used properly and child abuse (or even homicide) when not.

    I got it! Female for all things related to children, male for all things related to pawn shops. (That logo on pawn shops? That’s St. Nicholas’ three sacks.)

    I like how you started with precious bodily fluids. I wonder how many anti-fluoride types know that was a real John Birch Society conspiracy theory. “Poe” could very well stand for Purity Of Essence. (It doesn’t. But it’s nice to pretend.)

    You’re gonna take a walk in the rain and you’re gonna get wet, I predict

    Funny thing is, the first incels I ever encountered (wow, was it really 1999?) were Asian. Very 90s site, with all the typical 90s designs (solid black background because that’s so deep, Fraktur brushscript header, misspelled). They tended to see the anti-Asian bias as “assimilate the women, leave the men behind” imperialism.

    ‘Twould be more accurate to say “If they do exist, they either can’t get to Earth or are staying the hell away from Earth.” It’s a huge universe. I can fully understand why all intelligent life would stay away from a planet _insert jeremiad about how narcissistic, obsessed with conspicuous consumption, obsessed with celebrity, and listens to…[Read more]

    Minute-by-minute. So you’ve been to South Dakota, I take it?

    But seriously, yeah, the problem is that people don’t understand the concept of scale. Similarly, climate does change even without human intervention, but never so rapidly. It takes a geologic time scale.

    Thank you. I took one look at how the more toxic Dems *cough*Daily Kos*cough* were handling this, and yeah, unsurprisingly, everyone but Meteor Blades was attacking Meteor Blades and using a commercial genealogy site as if it was an official statement from the Cherokee.

    To be fair, Trump could very well be the first Indian POTUS. Of course,…[Read more]

    “So there it is, right? Memory is infallible, eyewitnesses can’t be trusted, there’s no way we should believe an accusation of sexual assault several decades after it happened. Right?”

    One edit: Should read “memory is fallible”. But this still doesn’t change this: Ford and the other alleged (covering my legal ass here) victims knew Kav…[Read more]

    Yeah, when you conflate the two, things get…yeah.

    However, there is definitely a correlation between being a domestic abuser and shooting people. Also a correlation between being an incel and shooting people. Wow, who knew misogyny would correlate so well to murder? Lots of people would.

    It’s an interesting defense, since someone who raped one woman didn’t rape 3.7 billion women. So, you see, he’s a nice guy after all.

    I rigged the personality test on Pokémon Mystery Dungeon to be a Mudkip.

    Not actually a sin, but okay.

    Well, there was his talk about Chinese mercantilism…

    Anyway, yeah, I always end up saying “It’s not killing the bees, but I killed the wasps.” (I had a major wasp infestation earlier this year.)

    Lie Detector was a cute game, but when you’re accused of a crime, you will be stressed.

    We can only suss out lies by looking for inconsistencies.

    What’s amazing to me is, people still think crowdfunding is the greatest thing. I mean, it worked for Salk, but that was then. This is the era of scams on every crowdfunding site.

    I won’t go as far as the MSM in saying millennials are serial killers (RIP malls, dating, drive-in movies, drive-thrus, etc.), but millennials are certainly…[Read more]

    Yeah, even most /x/ folks seem to know they’re a con.

    Plus, the metaphor doesn’t make sense. Bakers don’t assemble crumbs to make a cake.

    Granted, they’re not the first ones to use bad metaphors. *cough*the entirety of The World is Flat by the only guy even more disconnected from reality than Trumpsters*cough*

    This is going to be one of those like when everyone said “If Hillary doesn’t win, a racist is going to be president.” as if that had never happened before in the entire history of the United States, isn’t it?

    It makes my blood boil too, and “boil” just happens to rhyme with the reason the US is fine with it. Well, one reason. (There is a…[Read more]

    You’re (somewhat) right, but only somewhat. In Minnesota about two decades ago, it wasn’t just whites involved in human trafficking and gang rape of Indian women, Somalis were as well.

    But don’t forget about the white traffickers and rapists. It was the Somalis who added clitoridectomy to the mix as well, though.

    It’s not exactly PC to say…[Read more]
