Momma Always Said, Psycho is as Psycho Does

     Some people can find humour in a blog.  Some people cannot.

     Back in 1997 when I wrote about psycho ex-girlfriends, I think I summed it up nicely.  Is she psycho, or “just someone who you feel is, indeed, full of more @#$! than last night’s dinner casserole?”  There were no invisibile mind-control rays in the post.  There were no “read between the lines” misogynistic overtones, either.
     But it is certainly the only post here that I can think would trigger this kind of response (with the expetives deleted).  The weirder part is, it came from someone here in Knoxville!

Some Women Love Star Wars, too!

A little earlier, Swanky sent me a link to the Yoda Backpack from Popgadget: Personal Tech for Women.  The description chided:

Though fully functional like a real PNW backpack, with room for books and adjustable straps, take a tip from the ladies and stay away or at least hide it for only your most geeky guy moments. Unless of course you find that very special girl whose definition of ‘hunky’ includes soda gut and the ability to recite verbatim the Jedi Code.

Never let your boss see your new camera phone this is what happens     Well, they are out there, in the wild.  And unlike most of the guys with such a fixation, some of them are attractive, don’t live with their parents, have jobs and enjoy conversations outside of Star Wars, Star Trek and Science Fiction in general.
A couple of weeks ago, I met just such a girl, in Knoxville, who had an absolute shrine of Star Wars paraphernalia the like of which I haven’t seen in twenty years.  She told me to let everyone know, she’s a “hot single chic looking for her geeky man.”  😉

As I’ve mentioned previously, I’m a bit of a Star Wars dork.  I have boxes upon boxes filled with Star Wars memorabilia, from Magazines and Newsletters to Toys to Zippo Lighters.  Now, my Star Wars collection dates back to 1976 (teaser posters and promotional items) and for the most part, ends abruptly in the early 1980’s.  She’s got a mixture like you wouldn’t believe…

     After sending her the link for the Yoda backpack, I had to wonder if she’d seen the English Subtitles on the Chinese version of Stars Wars Episode III.

You are a sacrifice article that I cut up rough now!I should really feeds you all dog!

     Backstroke of the West, indeed. 😉

Your band is just fantastic!

9/11 Revisionists, Take 2

     Since I posted about the joint effort between Blogitude.com & Instapinch.com making it a special point to lambast the 9//11 Revisionist, Spook911, there have been several new developments.  Foremost has been the revelation that Spooked claims to be a “biomedical researcher,” which should indicate that he has some grasp of Physics and Scientific Process.
     Fortunately for us, he doesn’t. 

     On July 9th, Pinch posted some links to Spook’s first experiment.  The experiment — using a bucket, some bent wire coathangers and gasoline — intended to disprove the fact that the WTC frame was made structurally inert by a hydrocarbon fire.
     This, however, was merely a predecessor to the “better model,” which Pinch pointed out on June 28th.  This experiment — using an empty rabbit cage and kerosene — intended to prove the same.  The rabbit cage was his “better model” of the wire-frame construction of the WTC.

     Using moonbat logic, the following things come to mind:

  • In the 1987 movie Fatal Attraction, an infatuated woman boils a family pet — a rabbit.  This also resulted in an empty rabbit cage.
  • Rabbit cages usually hold rabbits, which were used to test for pregnancy from 1927 onward, thus the phrase “Rabbit test.”
  • Wire coathangers have been increasingly difficult to find since the 1981 cinematic release of Mommy Dearest.
  • Star of Fatal Attraction, Michael Douglas, married Catherine Zeta-Jones.  The movie Rabbit Test stars Joan Rivers.  Mommy Dearest was the story of an abusive mother, Joan Crawford.

     More facts:

  • Rabbits are usually stuck with needles either in injecting placental blood during a rabbit test, to sedate them prior to killing them or when injecting them with substances during Biomedical Research.
  • Wire coat hangers are often used in makeshift drug laboratories to hold buckets and beakers over flame during the production of illicit drugs due to the fact that real laboratory equipment is extremely expensive.
  • “To jones” (two Joans, and an outright Jones) is to show physical symptons due to a physical or mental dependence, i.e. “to jones for a fix.”

     Using moonbat logic and taking into account needles, wire coat hangers, buckets and “jones,” I have deduced that Spook is a methamphetamine addict.

     The evidence is right there!

Mixed Signals

     I have a lot of friends, and roughly seventy percent of them are women.  I’m seriously thinking that invites trouble.
     It’s no secret that women can be very competitive when it comes to Men and dating in general.  It’s very confusing sometimes when, after a conversation with the gist, “Don’t wanna date, not ready, no, I don’t wanna have sex,” how some women will try and push that boundary to no end.  And it’s even more baffling when they come right out and say, “I’m falling in love with you.”
     Now, this hasn’t happened only once.  It’s happened four times in the last month, and is usually attributed to my giving “mixed signals,” or being called “a player.”  Nothing could be further from the truth.

     After being with the ex for seven years, the rules of having women as friends must have changed dramatically.  Apparently, there was an article in Cosmo or Redbook that I missed.  It was probably entitled “How To Tell If He’s Interested When He Says He Isn’t.”
     Number three on that list must have been, “When he gets up to go to the kitchen, he asks if you’d like anything.”  Number one was most certainly, “He answers the phone when you call.”
