Here is a 6 hour interview with Credo Mutwa, the Zulu Shaman. [] - Credo Mutwa interviewed by David Icke - The Reptilian Agenda

6 hours of two deluded people talking about their shared delusion doesn't constitute evidence, if that's what you were hoping we'd take it as.

I might appropriate "Credo" as a nickname for someone who'll believe anything.

You missed this bit:

No I didn't. It's funny (to me) not solely because I know what SQL injection is, since there's nothing inherently funny (to me) about SQL injection. It's the setting, the "characters" (such as they are), the conversation. "Little Bobby Tables, we call him," for example, is (to me) an amusingly colloquial interjection in itself, ironic in what would probably otherwise be a dry analysis of SQL injection, as is her stereotypically mom-like admonishment.

Just don't expect everyone to agree with you.

I don't. That's why I don't go around saying "this isn't funny" as if it's an objective fact and getting all uppity because other people like things I don't*.


*except for Jersey Shore, because that is just shit.

The "sudo make me a sandwich" one? Just not funny

... to you.

I "get" the "joke", it's just not even a little bit funny

... to you.

The "Bobby Tables" strip also isn't funny

... to you.

I did notice. I don't blame you. Reality is very difficult to face.

And apparently subjective opinion is a very difficult concept for you to grasp.

Something I've wondered about is why we don't see more relativistic protons hitting earth or the ISS. So where are these missing showers on earth right now?

Are they missing? Why would you expect more than we get?

Is the relative velocity of everything in the universe extremely low? I don't think so.

Why not? The relative velocity of most things nearby - the solar system, the Milky Way, Andromeda - is all quite slow relative to us, isn't it?

The one day you'd sell your soul for something, souls are a glut.
