Why Don’t You Know This?

I wrote this back in August of 2015. It seemed to me like I’d covered all the bases and could call it a day. I was wrong. Uber announced they are going to launch a flying car service in select cities starting next year. There is one itsy-bitsy problem with that. I’ll start with the simple stuff, the Moller Skycar, written about here on several occasions, still doesn’t do what it claims and no one will license it for use. But, if you must have one, they’re dumping them on…

Stuff You Should Know

There are some things many of us take for granted. Using the internet comes to mind. Yet, for a shocking number of people this simple task eludes them. What happens mostly is that they get duped into believing something that is patently false or they see their hard earned money go somewhere other than where they need it to be. So, in an effort to help folks out a little bit here today, I’m going to share some facts. I covered some of this back in January, but it bears…

Batshit? Meet Crazy!

There are people walking among us who believe in Bigfoot, UFOs (as alien visitors and not just something unidentified), chemtrails (because condensation trails make too much sense), President Obama is a Kenyan Muslim, or worse, follow the teachings of the Food Babe (a complete sociopath who has the I.Q. of a stone) and on and on. Little things like facts or logic don’t dissuade them. When reality conflicts with their perverted views, they deny reality. It’s that simple. Now here’s the sad part; they’re the reasonable ones. Paul Poisu has…

Them’s Be Stoopid

I have long bemoaned the dumbing down of America. There seems to be a growing number of humans who sincerely believe that their opinion carries as much weight as actual facts. They are 100% wrong but that fact doesn’t even enter their equations. If I may insult the word equations. It’s one thing to believe in something. Regular readers know that I believe in God. Mostly because I refuse to believe that I’m the most evolved being in the universe. Believing in God does not, by any stretch, require me…

Dem’s Difrunt Dan Us

We’ve been touching on some serious stuff like science and reality and stuff. And we have noted that there are people who are not convinced that this whole reality thing exists. Bigfoot? Sure. Science? Well that’s just a theory. So I thought that today might be a fun day to take a look at these reality deniers. And where do we find them? Well, sure, we could head to any Tea Party rally but that’s picking low hanging fruit. So where then? Well, you know us, we are going to…

A Quick Vacation Stop

I’ve wasted a lot of cyberspace debunking the whole concept of Bigfoot. It would seem that common sense and a basic knowledge of biology would preclude any notions in that direction. It would seem that way but it’s not. Simply put there is not enough vacant land in the areas where the Bigfeet allegedly live to hide a population large enough to be self sustaining. That is not true for the Yeti, which is rumored to live in Tibet and the surrounding areas. Scientists have even found DNA that could…

Gone Hunting

The level of stupid oozing up out of the sewers of America is starting to get frightening. A mom in Virginia dressed her 7 year old kid up as a Klansman. Why? Because it’s a family tradition. Mom even tossed out this little bon mot; “It’s supposed to be white with white, black with black, man with woman and all of that. That’s what the KKK stands for.” Well, yeah, that and a race war that they hope will eliminate non whites from the planet. It doesn’t get any more…

First Atlantis, Now a Yeti

Way back in 2011 I wrote a little story about how Atlantis had been found. And not in any bizarre location thousands of miles from nowhere, but in Spain by a scientist named Richard freund. Research is ongoing but, except according to some irate occultists, it seems to be the real deal as described by Plato circa 360 BC. However, since reality is boring to some folks, there are those left unsatisfied by the discovery. There is also nothing I can do about that. It is what it is. The…

You’ve Got a Lovely Pair of Noids

Last week, on the radio version of this blog (as heard on WBIG), my facilitator, Ryan Gatenby, was amused by the fact that science is close to creating real life X-Men. He wondered aloud if that would mean that we might, one day, meet a modern rendition of Prince Namor the Sub-Mariner. Given that the character of Namor has vacillated between wanting all humans dead and hosting nice parties at the U.N., I’m not sure we want someone that unstable to have super powers. That became even more true when…

This Week’s Done

It has been a week of people just making stuff up. Some kids found a bear paw and suddenly “SCIENTISTS ARE BAFFLED” and “EVIDENCE OF BIGFOOT HAS BEEN FOUND!!” Respectively, no they weren’t and no it wasn’t. Additionally, a documentary was released this week to no fanfare, unless your a truly disturbed person, that purported to have proof of extraterrestrial life. The press releases showed many pics of a 6 inch tall humanoid figure. The press release also states that scientists could not classify the creature’s DNA. All cool except…
