C'mon, it's Giuliani. He puts on the red nose like all the rest and does his pratfalls to attract attention. Everybody's doing the "Trump" these days, trying to outdo each other for their fifteen minutes. It's the 'New and Improved' Tea Party.

But, as always, don't blame them for their success. All the sadness and ignorance stands on the shoulders of those who support and enable them.

Comment Re:Wasn't the C64 just a BASIC interpreter anyways (Score 1) 55

That is a really good point that I overlooked. When I wrote BASIC on the C64 I didn't go nearly that far (but that says lots about how little I did with BASIC on the C64 and nothing about doing anything clever to not need those features). That said, if these were "programming for kids" type books would they go to that level?

As someone else pointed out, a C64 emulator could make the point unimportant.

I know you're not generally a big fan of reality, but the ruse that was the Tea Party ended some time ago. Now it's time to face the fact that it has been exposed for what it is. If you want to keep wearing your triangle hat and declaring your fondness for a whole new level of extreme regressive taxation that's fine, but telling yourself that others believe you actually give a shit about the rights that we used to have through the constitution is a lie that nobody but you still believes.

When I read "The Sexual Misconduct Case That Has Rocked Anthropology" I was thinking that it would be something about neanderthals and apes having sex or whatever. Sexual misconduct among modern humans in positions of authority is still shocking?

To the tune of "when the moon's in your eye, like a big pizza, pie, thats's a-mor-e

When the local priest does it
And then the pope hides it
That's a-mor-e

When the cellmate you call Bubba
Says "on your knees, sucka"
That's a-mor-e

When the guy at the bar
Slips you ludes, goes to far,
That's a-mor-e

When the cop says "Let's say"
"We can make this go away."
That's a-mor-e

Humans are really, really f*cked up
Say it's not rape, you're a slut
And claim its a-mor-e
