"Smaller ISP companies should market themselves as not selling people's internet browsing history and potentially make more money from everyone switching to them than if they sold browsing histories."

This was sent to me:
"You can install OpenVPN in the cloud to stay private. I'm looking into this."
"So wheres the kickstarter to buy the info of everyone who voted for this, their donors, and their families, and have it publicly released?"
"its a gofundme actually. no shit, check it out."

If I'm not mistaken, after WWII the Japanese passed laws that held them, from that time forward, to possess only defensive weapons. Now, with North Korea having nuclear weapons and delivery systems, I would think offensive weapons are their best defense. 
Anybody know anything about that?

I am sad to admit that I think single payer is the only way we are going to get universal health care.
But what about all the pension funds invested in the insurance companies?


===
The changed the name of an airport for Christian Renaldo.

And they commissioned this statue.


This pretty much covers it.

But people have been fucking around with sculptures for a long time.

===
Got a comment that stated this:
"In two generations heterosexuals will be a minority. Bi and pan will be the majority."
I found it hilarious. He was offended by the Lego dick through the glory hole.

April already? Wow, time really flies when you're always drunk.


THINGS THAT JUST AIN'T RIGHT, Y'ALL


===
China allows the sale of live animal keychains.

===
You really need to read this.
How does that man remain unrestrained?

===
An Idaho family discovered snakes in the walls of their new house in 2011. When they moved in, they noticed snakes everywhere. Sometimes they saw 40 or more snakes in their garden. They then heard slithering sounds in the walls. 
They pried open the walls and dozens of snakes fell out. It was revealed that the house was built on top of a snake hibernaculum, where snakes go to sleep. The family decided to just move out and file bankruptcy.

===

===
This from a movie. Who builds shit like that?
Speaking of movies, I clicked on a Netflix movie and there was a button to skip the intro. Brilliant! Fucking brilliant!

===
Texas state rep Jessica Farrar has introduced legislation that would fine Texas men $100 for "unregulated masturbatory emissions"; it forces men seeking vasectomies or Viagra prescriptions to undergo medically unnecessary rectal exams, and would require them to review a government pamphlet called "A Man's Right to Know."
Why? Masturbatory emissions outside a vagina or a medical facility, describing them as "an act against an unborn child" that fails to preserve "the sanctity of life."
If HB 4260 in Texas passes that will cost you $100 fine.

===
Little bastard got exactly what was coming to him.

===
Meet Flippy, the burger-flipping robot.
If you had watched "Humans Need Not Apply" as I suggested, you would know that very quickly every job a human does with their hands will be done by robots.

And from London...
"Do you have a minute to talk about our lord and savior, Skynet?"

Sometimes I look around at strange women and think "I'm just so grateful I never fucked any of you."


LET'S LEARN SOMETHING

"The Law of Conservation of Angular Momentum states that if no unbalanced external torque acts on a rotating system, the angular momentum of the system is constant. An external torque is initially added to the system producing vertical angular moment in the wheel. The physicist and the wheel are now considered a closed system with no external forces. When the wheel is held vertically, horizontal spinning equals zero and the physicists doesn't rotate. When the wheel is turned horizontally, the physicist spins to counteract the wheel's rotation, thus conserving angular momentum."

A cycloid curve has the special property that the time it takes for an object to slide to the bottom of it under gravity is the same no matter how high it starts up the curve.
Also, the time it takes is always equal to pi times the square root of the cycloid radius divided by g. Presented here are two instances of two balls being released at the same time, and each time they reach the bottom and collide at the center - even if one ball is released much lower than the other. 

===
Kid Thinks Black Tiles is a hole.
I saw a video of a very small baby crawl to what looked like descending stairs, but it had a sheet of glass over it. The child turned around, crawled backwards and tried to stick his foot down to the next stair.

===
After WWII, the US launched the Marshall Plan to help Europe rebuild, spending about $120B in inflation-adjusted dollars on the project, which lifted the war-stricken European nations out of disaster and launched them into post-war prosperity; the US has spent even more than that on rebuilding projects in Afghanistan since the official cessation of hostilities there, but Afghanistan remains a crumbling, corrupt, failed state where violence is rampant, opium exports are soaring, and soldiers and civilians alike are still dying.

Beer without alcohol is like licking your sister. It tastes the same, but it's just wrong.


ART, MOVIES AND HOBBIES

Braveheart-1995
Several of the major battle scenes in Braveheart had to be re-shot, as extras were seen wearing sunglasses and wristwatches. 

===
This is one cool ass hobby.

===
The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966)
The scene where the bridge was blown up had to be filmed twice. In the first take all three cameras were destroyed by the explosion. 

===
A Clockwork Orange-1971
A Clockwork Orange was shot almost entirely on real locations as opposed to sets and was lit almost entirely with a Lowell Kit, a staple for film students.

===
I've known people who love to argue.
Some people will ask how you feel about this or that topic, then argue for the opposite side...either side, as long as it's not the one you had. 

===
Tucker and Dale vs Evil

===
An Immersive Forest of 60,000 Rainbow Numbers by Emmanuelle Moureaux.

"Spotted at the Rosewood BP. Made my day instantly better. I love our neighborhood," said the Facebook entry.
It is, of course one of mine.

Sometimes I wish I were a nicer person, but then I laugh and continue my day. 


LANGUAGE


===
She's putting the make on him and takes that to mean something entirely different.

===

===
(To hell with that. You will get in the car, enter the address you desire and it will do all the "driving.")

===

===
You think this is a real thing?

Let's make this child even more famous. She paid dearly for our attention.

Sometimes I get so fascinated by the concept of gravity that I pick up random objects and drop them for several minutes while giggling like a little girl.

Lego dick didn't really bother me. If a lego dick came through a glory hole when I was shitting I'd have the same reaction. It just triggered me because it reminded me of all the other posts I've seen on here that are against alternative lifestyles. (Some being the true norm)

The blog is on one side ayyy homosexuals and then subtle degrading posts on the other hand. With you being the ultimate supreme being of truth.

I'm just here to oppose you haha honestly. Because your an affront (is this the right word ? Fuck idk) to progress.

I disagree with some other things to. But I only comment about gender and sexuality. Cuz they have the most potential to change society for the better.

When I was in the Boy Scouts back in the '50s, we used to make gunpowder using those exact ingredients. Doubt we used those measurements, but the result was highly effective.

I don't know how many viewers you have here, but I know it's a lot. It's certainly a hell of a lot more of an audience than will likely ever listen to me. So in this forum that gives you a VERY amplified voice. And today is the first time Ive seen you use that voice to call out a commenter who didn't see things your way. To day you greatly simplified his statement would also be quite the understatement. I've read you for years. We haven't always seen eye to eye on things but I've never seen you do anything like this. If he is a thorn in your side, block him and don't publish his comments. Watching you two go back and forth day after day makes me want to box BOTH of your ears at times but this was very small. Yes, Anonymous has been rude to you and provocative too. The difference is that volume thing. I would have preferred you to ban him than to sneer at him in front of eventual millions based on an incorrect assertion designed to belittle him.

Im totally cool with being belittled. all of your viewers had the words "In two generations heterosexuality will be the minority. Pansexuality and bisexuality will be the majority" in their brains for a couple seconds. to me this is a win. injecting queer things into the conversation is the goal... haha and has always been the goal.

This is also why being rude and provacative is effective. There was a period there where transgender things were becoming extremely frequent. Relatively little exposure to ideas is one of the biggest reasons we arent equal. regardless of whether or not its portraying trans people positively or not is irrelevant, it is exposure. we fucking exist. Not everyone who reads this blog is going to come away thinking trans are less than. some may see my pain and say damn well im going to vote this way or im going to say no or say yes or whatever.

the struggle of ideas is incrediblly important to me. I thank you Ralph for struglling with me.

Also my name is Matt............ today.

I am not in a struggle. I am in the humor business. This topic is not funny, therefore I withdraw.
Wishing you the very best in your struggles, but I have people to amuse. You want a powerful weapon to use in your quest? Try making people laugh. It is far harder than you can imagine.

Anonymous said...

I am one of your biggest fans Ralph. Humour is everything. You need intelligence and understanding of human nature to do humour. I don't know much about transexuality etc. but too sadly it seems to equate here all too often with a distinct lack of sense of humour.
