Extracts from the Little-Read Book: Chapter 017


Wit, wisdom, pseudonietzscheanistic aphorisms, and bad jokes.

* The Russians, in WW2, trained dogs to think that meat could be found underneath tanks. The idea was to tie antitank mines to the dogs, let them loose, watch them run under enemy tanks, and then blow them up, dog and all. They failed to take into account that the dogs were smart enough to tell the difference between Russian and German tanks... and would only run under Russian tanks, as that was how they were trained. Ooops.

* Sorry, I lost all sympathy for the Palestinian cause when they blew up that Tel Aviv pizza parlor.

* I actually had a guidance counselor tell me to drop my Journalism major my freshman year. "There's no place in journalism for a Nixonite." (=conservative.... this was 1980 remember). I never forgave him.

* If you are on any of a number of major universities and reveal that you are a cissexual heteronormative, that is considered an extreme Career Limiting Move. One is often encouraged to become a LUG (Lesbian Until Graduation). However, while LUG status is revocable, the male equivalent is, generally speaking, not.

* Killing babies is killing babies is killing babies.

* I saw a movie about the marriage of C.S. Lewis to his Joy. Tried to imagine Lewis’s reaction to finding out that a movie was made about his marriage–something I am certain he never contemplacted for a moment.

* The secessionists were the most effective abolitionists of all. Even idiots can serve the will of God. QED.

* Putin. Who's next? Russia does not have a very reliable history of stupid-maniac-avoidance in their top office.

* It sez here: "I got Grape - What fruit are you?" (quizony.com) Banana. A very large and thick banana.

* It sez here: Sheriffs Coalition: Sheriffs Have Constitutional Duty To Refuse To Comply With Illegal Gun Control thefederalistpapers.org How about complying with same sex marriage ukazes?

* We have created a two-class system in this country to replace slavery. Instead of escaped slaves avoiding the patterrollers we have illegals by the millions driving the exact speed limit because they know that they can lose everything as a consequence of a traffic stop. Multiply that by 12 to 20 million and you have a political powderkeg.

* It sez here: Eric Holder Attacks John Roberts: Colorblindness Not Best Way to End Discrimination breitbart.com Holder should be arrested pronto. He's not interested in ending discrimination, he's interested solely in plunder and retaliation. Mostly plunder.
 

* As my father used to say, it all depends on whose ox is gored.

More Tuesday.
