The argument that I find the most outlandishly bankrupt is that he has suffered for thirty years–constant fear of apprehension, unable to travel to certain countries, missing out on awards events, etc–and that is enough punishment, so leave him alone. The only reason he has had to endure these supposed indignities is that he has been a motherfucking fugitive from the fucking law.

Fuck him, and fuck his suffering of indignities. He should have thought of that when he raped a child and then fled justice.

Rich-Ass Opera Fans Boo Opera

September 27, 2009

Am I really supposed to give a flying fuck about this shit?

THE fracas during curtain calls for the Metropolitan Opera’s new production of Puccini’s “Tosca” last Monday is just the latest episode in a grand history of operatic booing. Frank expressions of displeasure pierced the applause at the conclusion of Act II and exploded when the production team took its bows at the end of the opera. Many in the audience took umbrage at the villain’s lewd advances toward a statue of the Madonna; at the failure by Tosca to make her customary sweeping exit after stabbing the villain to death; and at the substitution, after an awkward pause, of a stunt double for her suicidal leap.

So, some rich-ass motherfuckers are booing at the motherfucking opera? And this is a “fracas”? Fuck me.

Easiest Veal Stew On Earth

September 27, 2009

Two pounds cubed stewing veal (I’m not sure what cut it is; I just ask the butcher for stew veal and this is what he gives me), 1-2 inch cubed carrots, turnips, parsnips, and onions, about 1-1.5 cups each, 2 cups cheap-ass pinot noir, 1 cup demi glace, 1 cup chicken broth, 1 can Muir Glen chopped tomatoes, sprigs of thyme, tarragon, and sage, salt and pepper to taste.

Just put all the shit in a dutch oven and simmer the shit for about three hours, and then turn up the heat, add some flour or cornstarch to thicken, and reduce the shit for about ten minutes.

Robbie Cano (UPDATED: 200!)

September 26, 2009

The Yankees are so stacked with huge bats, that Robinson Cano has been totally under the radar. But he reached 24 homers and 199 hits today. w00t!


September 25, 2009

Oh, crap. Poor Lester just got fucking NAILED with a batted ball HARD on the inside of his right knee. You could hear the fucking “clock” sound when it hit him. I hope he’s ok. He managed to limp off the field on his own power. I hate to see shit like that, even to a hated Red Sock player. Fuck.

UPDATE: Apparently, he’s fine.

Management 101

September 25, 2009

Some people’s answer to everyfuckingthing that involves other people not doing what is expected or desired is to make a rule. Then when they make the rule, and behavior still doesn’t meet expectations or desires, their answer is nothing more than an indignant whine: “But I *told* them what they are supposed to do!!” Fucking morons.

Making a rule and telling people to obey it is pretty much the single least effective way available to get people to do something. The way to get people to do something is to create a system of reinforcers and incentives that make people *want* to do the thing you want them to do.

When the answer of a manager or administrator to a failure of action is, “But I *told* them to do it”, you know you are dealing with a total fucking incompetent.


September 25, 2009

Has anyone throughout the entire history of the English language who has earnestly used the phrases “actions have consequences” or “words have consequences” not been a totally full-of-shit cockwad blowhard?

Who Writes This Garbage?

September 24, 2009

From a new report on the TERROR PLOT:

Zazi has publicly denied any terrorist plotting. But a series of searches in Denver and New York City over the past two weeks — including high-profile raids on Queens apartments that netted backpacks, cell phones and a scale — haven’t found any evidence of explosives.

[Emphasis added.]

But!? Shouldn’t that be And? Because, like, the second sentence in that paragraph is consistent with and reinforces the assertion in the first sentence, rather than, like, being incosistent with and weakening the assertion in the first sentence. Do these AP motherfuckers even speak motherfucking English?

“Terror Plot”

September 22, 2009

Terrorist probe expands:

“Operation Nexus” took on an extra urgency after raids on Queens apartments Zazi visited around the eighth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks turned up knapsacks and cell phones.

ZOMFG!!!!! They had KNAPSACKS and CELL PHONES!!!!!!!!111!!1!1!!111!!!

Yeah, them and every single other motherfucker in Queens.

Anybody aware of any evidence that these dudes actually had the means to carry out their plans? I ask because the vast majority of these “terror plots” have turned out to be a couple of wackos in some shitty kitchen somwhere fantasizing about waging jihad–but with no ability whatsoever to actually implement any of their sick fantasies of destruction–being led on by law enforcement.
