Jonathan Coulton's coming back to Madison! I hope I get groupies, for helping bring it about. And so should everyone else who clicked the link. Hey, I bet if I started that rumour, more people would click it. Hmmm...

... They wouldn't have put such an idiotic warning up, if someone hadn't already done it:

Think how bad his producer must have it.

Also, the new ant pieces from the Indian Jones Lego sets can be combined with a decapitated minifig to make a decent Khepri:


I've also finally gotten around to un-screening my "unscreen this if i'm dead right now" posts from Iraq. Well, they're still friends-locked, but anyway. There are fewer than I remember, so I must have forgotten to tag some of them, and I'll have to go through my posts manually now to find them all. Oh well. And BTW, this is NOT a subtle cry for help, I feel surprisingly un-suicidal right now.

For senior, abortion a medium for art, political discourse

Art major Aliza Shvarts ’08 wants to make a statement.

Beginning next Tuesday, Shvarts will be displaying her senior art project, a documentation of a nine-month process during which she artificially inseminated herself "as often as possible" while periodically taking abortifacient drugs to induce miscarriages. Her exhibition will feature video recordings of these forced miscarriages as well as preserved collections of the blood from the process.

Truly, we are living in strange days. Though it wouldn't surprise me at all if this was a hoax, even that would still be horrific yet hysterically absurd. Ultimately, though, It affects my opinion on abortion not at all. What is that opinion, you may ask? Why, my opinion is that, as a male, my opinion doesn't really count. Abortion is an issue that affects women much more than it does men, to the point that any opinion that a guy might have is pretty much irrelevant. If I _had_ an opinion, it would be that the issue should be decided by the votes of biological females, and biological females _only_. Ideally, it would be all those who are between puberty and menopause, and not otherwise of impaired fertility, i.e., having already been sterilized, because they're the only ones who would be immediately affected. But realistically, that would be way too difficult to enforce, not to mention intrusive, and the whole under-age voter thing would be a deal breaker. Still, that's a matter for other heads than mine to work out, since, as I've already mentioned, it's none of my business. And if you're not a biological female, it's none of yours either.

Edit: The more I think about this, the more certain I am it's a hoax. Barring a comprehensive doctor's exam and DNA testing of the "miscarriages", I'm going to assume that the artist in question has simply found a creative use for menstrual blood, and a credulous audience to outrage.

Further Edit: I was right. Still, kind of disappointing that they didn't stretch the joke out a bit longer, they could have gotten days of headline news coverage out of this, making the eventual punchline that much sweeter.

Oh noes!

Behold the sheer mind-rending terror that is The Atheist Apocalypse!
edit: More web comics: The Smashing Adventures of the Bottomleys, Mangled Stare, Looking for Group, Backward Compatible. Other linky things: 17 month old toddler can read, The truth behind 1980s video games revealed, Is society ready for a pregnant husband?, "Civil forfeiture" really &*$%ing sucks, Gygax inspired motivational posters, In Regard to Surviving in a World With James Caan, Tin Can Optimus Prime, and finally, just for giggles, a really cool pirate wench corset

Also, Just a random thought: If you allow a friend to address you as "Asshole", does that mean you forfeit any right to complain if anyone else in the whole world does too? 'Cuz that's the exact same logic that "But black people call each other 'nigger', so why can't I?" type idiots use.

Well of _course_ they're all nothing but thinly veiled Star Wars characters. What did you expect?

The latest Rant by Foamy the Squirrel was brilliant, though not safe for work, children, or poor drivers who may be offended by his ideas of rough justice. Also, at some point I will add linkies to some of the following comics: Cool Cat Studios, Marry Me, God Mode, Subculture of One, No Pink Ponies, I Was Kidnapped By Lesbian Pirates From Outer Space, The Superest, +ev, Wicked Powered, Masters of The Art, Yu+Me, and Jetpacks and Time Machines. Until then, enjoy.

Priests brawl at Bethlehem birthplace of Jesus.

BETHLEHEM, West Bank (AFP) - Seven people were injured on Thursday when Greek Orthodox and Armenian priests came to blows in a dispute over how to clean the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem.

Following the Christmas celebrations, Greek Orthodox priests set up ladders to clean the walls and ceilings of their part of the church, which is built over the site where Jesus Christ is believed to have been born.

But the ladders encroached on space controlled by Armenian priests, according to photographers who said angry words ensued and blows quickly followed.

God bless us, every one!
