Can someone please tell the ridiculous fucking assmonkey shitbag talking heads at ESPN that the plural of “RBI” is “RBIs”, not “RBI”? I have had it up to here with this fake-ass illiterate pseudo-intellectual pompous douchebaggery coming out of the mouths of a bunch of dumb-ass frat boys who all got picked last for kickball! FUCK!

Those who are interested in the opinions of others concerning this important issue, please go here.

Commenter Bijan Parsia made an important point in our discussion of intellectual appropriation and attribution about the role of good faith all of this:

One thing to remember is that *good faith* is critical: One shouldn’t let the idea of better than due diligence prevent one from doing work (or posting), but if one makes an attribution mistake it helps to apologize and try to rectify (as you did in your case). Read the rest of this entry »

An astute reader expressed concern yesterday that the tagline of this blog currently read as follows:

“Step in, Sit Down, Chill The Heck Out” — I said that

She speculated that perhaps WordPress had ordered the removal of what those who are observant as she is will recall as the original tagline:

“Step in, Sit Down, Chill The Fuck Out” — I said that

(emphasis added).

No, WordPress doesn’t seem to give a flying fuck about evocative language on blogs they host. Actually, as part of my totally fucking hilarious April Fools joke, I changed “fuck” to “heck”, and I just forgot to change it back.

Deepest apologies to those readers who have been scandalized by my egregious use of the despicable slimy weak right-wing shitbag euphemism “heck”. I have restored the honest strong liberal evocative term “fuck” to its rightful place in the tagline.

From Digby yesterday:

Update: I hadn’t actually read this Krugman column before I wrote this, but as readers point out it makes some similar observations.

This is an illustration of what one can do when related material comes to light pursuant to good-faith intellectual discourse.

For the most part, pathetic right-wing dumbfuck scumbags don’t seem to visit PhysioProf, or at least if they do, they rarely leave comments. And we do not censor non-spam comments here, except if they contain racist, misogynist, or other hateful content. Well, some absurd shitbag Republican douchemonkey calling himself “Rick” decided he was not real happy with PhysioProf’s opinions, and decided to make a comment. And the comment was so totally diagnostic of fearful dumbfuck right-wing authoritarian follower keening, and so totally fucking hilarious, that I felt I just had to elevate it to the top level: Read the rest of this entry »

Lots of agonizing and hand-wringing and philosophizing and navel-gazing and vituperation and fight/flight-response activation at ScienceBlogs and elsewhere in the blogosphere concerning pseudonymous blogging. Some say that pseudonymous bloggers are RUINING THE INTERNET11!!1!!!!ELEVENTY!11!!1!!!!, while others assert that pseudonymous blogging KICKS TOTAL FUCKING ASS. PhysioProf has opined on this topic previously:

Blue Gal has pointed out a very pernicious theme that is percolating around liberal Democratic circles, which concerns the relative “progressiveness” of the remaining two Democratic Presidential candidates:

[S]pare me the “your candidate is not progressive enough” meme because I can’t stand it.

Yeah, fuck that shit. Here’s PhysioProf’s retort when some liberal fucking tucheslacker serves up that garbage:

My candidate is just sufficiently not completely over-the-top right-wing demented fucking wackaloon enough for me, fuck you very much!

Feel free to use this with your family, friends, and co-workers!

(h/t S. Rivlin for the “tucheslacker” coinage)

UPDATE: It has come to my attention that “tucheslacker” is a variant spelling of “tuches lecker”, which is Yiddish for “ass licker/kisser”. However, I still insist on pronouncing it “toosh slacker”!
