From an article purporting to break the STAGGERING news that THE CREATOR of DOCTOR WHO Sydney Newman said the ONLY way to save the show would be to MAKE HIM A WOMAN!!!!


...yeah, ol' skoolers know exactly how many things are wrong with that above sentence.

But this bit from the article really, really pissed me off:


The UK Resource Centre for Women in Science, Engineering and Technology yesterday called on the BBC to finally realise Mr Newman's vision and ensure that the current Doctor, Matt Smith, is succeeded by a woman.

Jane Butcher, the centre's assistant director, said: "Having a high-profile TV character such as Doctor Who being played by a female would raise the profile of women in science and would help convince young women that they can make an important contribution, both as scientists and as leaders."



How the FUCK does that help women be convinced they can stand on their own make a contribution rah rah vag power if the only fucking way they can make it popular is by STEALING A MALE ROLE? Stop trying to ride the coattails of things that are popular and stand on your own two goddamn feet, you stupid bint! You're practically the antithesis of feminism at this point!

"WAAAAAH WE AIN'T POPULAR ENOUGH. MAKE US POPULAR BY LOPPING OFF MALE CHARACTERS TESTICLES. MAKE THEM LIKE US."

2081, anyone?

Try making your own character that isn't shit. Maybe that would help. It certainly worked for Sam Carter, "Bones" Brennan, Susan Calvin, Jordan Cavanaugh, Zira, Ellen Ripley, Liz Shaw and a host of others.

Twat.

You know me - I'm all "believe what thou wilt, I don't give two flying shits" but holy CRAP this is some weapons-grade batshit right here.

“[M]ost of the candy sold during this season has been dedicated and prayed over by witches,” Daniels wrote. “I do not buy candy during the Halloween season. Curses are sent through the tricks and treats of the innocent whether they get it by going door to door or by purchasing it from the local grocery store. The demons cannot tell the difference.”



"....I have prayed for witches who are addicted to drinking blood and howling at the moon.”


Oh Kim. Kim, Kim, Kim. You're fucking insane.

Was watching Leonardo, a part-dramatisation, part documentary, part mythbusters style series on the designs and discoveries of Leonardo da Vinci.

And some twat actually asked "Was he a greater genius than Einstein or Newton?"


...THE FUCK

Einstein and Newton are geniuses in their fields, but da Vinci was a fucking coruscating brilliance. A polymath of the highest order. Anatomy, geology, physics, art, civil engineering - he mastered them all. And he did it in a time when there was no foreknowledge whatsoever to build on. He didn't stand on the discoveries of others, he observed, catalogued, extrapolated, tested, proved all this on the power of his own mind. FFS, the man identified Arterial Sclerosis, and extrapolated the cause being from "a nutrient too rich in the blood" being deposited and building up on the walls (what we now know as Cholesterol). He designed a working hang glider, an automaton capable of standing up from a seated position and resuming that position (Which may not sound like much, but ask any robot designer the mechanics involved), wrote an anatomy treatise that rivals Greys, designed and created a diving suit that operated on the principles of compressed air - and these aren't poncy suppositions, but actual items that have been created from his notes and tested in the 20th Century. And he did this using the materials and forging methods of his time - the 15th and 16th Centuries.

In fact, off the top of my head I can really only think of possibly Benjamin Franklin being comparable on the staggering level of his intellect, and even then it's with a bit of a see-saw hand motion.

It really shits me that his legacy in the common mind is the Mona Lisa and a fucking Dan Brown novel. (And trite T-shirts bearing Vitruvian Man ) The man was a shining example of sheer brilliance and dedication to the pursuit of knowledge. It's almost terrifying to contemplate what he could have accomplished in a more enlightened day and age.

Just got woken up by a weasel-faced twat trying to convince me it wasn’t important and they’d get out in about two weeks.

Yes. Of course. The electrics in the house malfunction so badly that they blow up a UPS rated to deal with 1025 kilojules and don’t trip the fucking safety switch and it can wait two weeks.

In the middle of winter

When it’s pissing.

And there’s a known hole in the roof.

I don’t fucking think so.

And neither do they after the reaming I gave them.

I reamed out the estate agent last week because the tree wasn't fucking touched, and the bastard property manager didn't even have the goddamn courtesy to return my emails.

I just got a call from him. "Yes, in regards to the property at 13 13 mockingbird lane.....The tenants have advised that the tree wasn't removed and "

"....You do realise you're speaking to the tenant right now?"

"Oh! Am I?"

Dear fandom:

Bite me. You're all half-fucking crazy anyway.

And it's not a fucking strike. You're holding a moratorium. Call me when you have a valid excuse to bitch, apart from having to pay for things you're using to getting for free, or bitching about something not appearing on the ZOMG FAVOURITES LIST.

If you don't like it, piss off to another journal. Market forces and all that schizz.

Creationists get completely and utterly fucking OWNED

Excerpt in a nutshell:


The 4-3 vote was obtained by including a last-minute amendment to the standards. Suggested last Friday by religious conservatives and dubbed the "academic freedom proposal," the amendment required that the curriculum's references to "evolution" be replaced by the "scientific theory of evolution."

The amendment's supporters called the language change a victory -- and it is, though not in the way they imagine.


Not only will Florida's students learn about evolution; they'll also learn that the scientific definition of a theory is different from the everyday definition, referring not to wild-eyed speculation but to a vast body of observation and testing that confirms a hypothesis so strongly that it might as well be considered fact.


Oh...oh that's a beautiful piece of pwnage RIGHT there. Brings a tear to my eye it does.

Interest rates are rising! Blame Labour! Blame Labour! ALL HAIL HOWARD! HE NEVER WOULDA LET DIS HAPPEN!


1) The reserve bank is independant from the party currently in power, no matter how much Howard liked to stick his fingers in the machine.
2) Labour don't even sit until the end of the year. It's all still Liberal policies, bebbe, and they're the ones who stuck us on this road and jammed a brick down on the accelerator.


Face up, shitheads. The rates rise is due to several facts, including Liberal not doing a damned thing about labour shortages and thus JoeAverage having to pay more for certain skillsets, but more importantly due the fact you're a pack of overconsuming twats who are digging yourselves merrily into a financial hole. Rate rises are supposed to hurt - they're the brakes on the national expenditure.

If you don't understand economics, then pipe down. Although it's better to keep ones mouth shut and be thought a fool, rather than open it and remove all doubt, unfortunately we've long been moving to a culture of lauding idiocy. And people wonder why I'm such a social misanthrope......


EDIT Btw, can I just say how much i fuckign love Rudd for this?

"If you believe in independent monetary policy and the independence of the Reserve Bank, you do not, unlike our predecessors, provide public lectures to the Reserve Bank"

And in response to typical political mudslinging by Turnbull snarking that Labour was telling a "fairytale about economic history":

....noting that the annual inflation rate of 3.6 per cent was at its highest level in 16 years. "That's not a fairytale, it's a real problem"


Oh be still my beating heart! Could it be that we have a political figure bringing some form of maturity back to the government in power?

FCC fines ABC for indecency

Jesus fuck.

The agency proposed the highest fine possible for the broadcast, which briefly showed the side and back of a naked woman getting into a shower.

"Although ABC argues, without citing any authority, that the buttocks are not a sexual organ, we reject this argument, which runs counter to both case law  and common sense," the FCC said in its complaint.





For those of you that may think this ruling is fair, please let me elaborate.

The backside of a human being is not a sexual organ. The buttocks are are rounded portions of the anatomy located on the posterior of the pelvic region. They are composed mostly of gluteal muscles with a lovely layer of fat, and their purpose is to allow us to sit upright without putting weight on our feet. True, they do split at a point and surround a hole, but that hole is designed for the defecation of waste material. It can be used in a sexual manner, but so can the mouth, the hand, and indeed a greased up knothole in a tree. This does not make them a sexual organ. They are nothing to be ashamed of, they are nothing to be afraid of, they are part of the human anatomy.

They have been sexualised, yes, but that is due to the fact that humans, like most animals, are randy fucks. And most often due to the titillation factor of a body part usually unseen by casual clothing. Other items that have been sexualised are legs, feet, foodstuffs, languages, the entire female body and sheep.

But lastly, and most importantly

If you can't stand the site of a pair of human buttcheeks YOU SHOULD NOT BE FUCKING WATCHING NYPD BLUE. It is not a nice show. It showes the aftermath of bloody murders, horrific sex crimes, the seedy underbelly of humanity. If a human arse offends you to the point of writing a nasty letter, but the other factors waft serenely by your mental blinders, then get the FUCK out of my genepool.

Seriously. Get the fuck out.

Sex is not a dirty, filthy thing that should be fled from. Agreed, there are ages where children should remain children and not know about adult matters like that, but children of that age should not be watching fucking shows aimed at adults.

You want disgust? I have your disgust right here. It's unacceptable to see the human body in its natural form. It's unacceptable to see expressions of love between a man and a woman, or a man and a man, or a woman and a woman, or indeed a woman, man and fifteen midgets. However, seeing the human form brutalised, degraded and torn apart is classified as entertainment? Seeing animals tormented and slaughtered, weapons made with no other purpose than to take another life being glorified...this is all ok?

You disgust me. Absolutely fucking disgust me.
