Walruses are lazy

This is an unretouched photograph of one of the laziest mammals on the planet; the common walrus. It is a well known fact that your average walrus would rather lay around of the beach, chewing rotten salmon and farting than go out and get honest work, but this just takes the cake. Walruses have become so lazy due to the Canadian welfare state that they now refuse to swim. They now force holes through the ice then hang by their tusks, letting the ice do all the work in getting them from one place to another. As everybody knows walruses don't actually have to ever be anywhere in particular so where ever the ice gets them is fine by them. It is just sad, that's all, seeing just how far these majestic animals have fallen. Stupid socialists. I bet they vote NDP too!

A prayer for the Japanese

It was the headline that caught my attention first. "Even Religion Can't Make Sense of Japanese Tragedy", it said and once again I am left wondering, WTF is that supposed to mean? "Even Religion"?! I mean, we know about the Earth's tectonic plates and how they move and catch against one another, and that earthquakes can be caused by these plates slipping against one another. Japan lies partly on the North American plate and partly on the Eurasian plate, and the Philippine plate is just to the south and this is all called part of the "Ring of Fire" because of all the tectonic activity - Japan has had more than it's fair share of earthquakes over the years. We as humans know all this, and a whole lot more, so what, exactly, does religion have to do with it? Beyond the apparent inability to make sense of it all, that is.

Bishop Michael Ingram, speaking at Christ Church Anglican Cathedral in Vancouver said the Japanese earthquake and tsunami were examples of "natural evil". "Natural evil is the result of things over which we have no control", and "we call them evil because they are evil", the Bishop also pointed out, and that is a couple of odd things for a Bishop to say. For something to be "evil" doesn't there have to be intent? Is the Bishop saying that nature has intent? I would hope not because that would be stupid, but he does come across as slightly apostate, doesn't he? As a good christian shouldn't Mike believe that that monotheistic capital 'G' god of his is in control of the Earth? Now I am not expert on myths and superstitions or their self contradicting belief systems along with the casual "cherry picking" of what bits of the various holy books to believe, but it seems to me that if Mike's god actually made the Earth then would that particular god understand about plate tectonics? Wouldn't that particular god have made the Earth without plate tectonics thus nipping the entire question in the bud? That is unless this god is just fine with earthquakes and tsunamis and the resulting tragedies, and is ok with it, or is that the evil the Bishop was referring to?

I do get the feeling that christians, like Mike, tend to want it both ways. His god allows thousands to die (or in the case of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, hundreds of thousands), but if one person is found alive buried in the resulting rubble, that's a miracle. Wouldn't a better miracle be not to have the tsunami in the first place? And then there are those babble-heads who say crap like, "Free will", or "sometimes it is good to suffer", or the even more thoughtlessly revolting, "everything happens for a reason."

"Free will" - that's were everybody has the opportunity to live as they see fit, as long as they kiss a bunch of god-ass for their entire three score and ten or they will burn in eternal torment in Hell. Yeah, that's free will. If you believe in this sort of stuff that is. Peace and love, god-style!

"Suffering can be good for you" - I would bet that a Japanese family that has just lost a child or other family member to the tsunami, or will be losing a family member to cancer from all the radioactive stuff that is floating around in the air there now from the leaking reactors would disagree with that particular sentiment.

"Everything happens for a reason" - So, children have died for a reason? Entire towns have been wiped out with a resulting high death toll for a reason? Radioactivity is covering the land and contaminating the food and water supplies for a reason? Right, good one.

"Even Religion Can't Make Sense of Japanese Tragedy"? I find it hard to believe that anyone would even bother to think that religion could. It really boggles the mind, again.

Ok, seriously? I mean, really? For that 97% of the human race who do not believe in brain-dead stupidity I present the concept of-----THE "SUPERMOON"! Ah yes, just when you think it is impossible for dumbnicity to get any more intensely dumber along comes something like "Supermoon", and unlike most of your more wall-eyed space concepts, this one is "based" on actual astronomy. Today's full moon (March 19, 2011) will be when the moon is at it's closest to the Earth. The moon will be about 221,500 miles away (the average distance is about 239,000 miles) which is the closest it will be for another five and a half years.So, it will be about 30% brighter in the sky and it will appear approximately 15% larger than usual. Tides may be a little higher than usual, and that is about as wild as it is going to get. Gosh.

Of course there are the usual gang of dim-wits out there who need to try to make this "supermoon" thing out to be something it is not. These are the usual fuzz tongues cretins who see doom everywhere and who are offended when one politely points out just how astoundingly stupid they are. As an example: there are these "supermoonies" who say that the X-mas eve tsunami in 2004 that killed over a quarter million people was caused by a "supermoon". This is what rational people call "bull-shit". Yes the moon was full at the time, but it was also about as far away from the Earth in it's orbit as it can get at the time. A pretty good example of how facts can get in the way of a stupid story.

The March 11 earthquake and tsunami in Japan is another good example. The usual crew of babble-heads who are squawking about how the upcoming "supermoon" caused the original earthquake should maybe jerk their heads out of their asses and ponder the fact that March 11 and March 19 (the date of the "supermoon") are actually eight days apart. In many societies this is more than a week and in fact at that particular time (March 11) the moon was not particularly close to the Earth, and it was also not in alignment with the sun, meaning that any fictional "supermoon"/earthquake connection would have been at it's lowest. Odd yet true.

Looking over my "supermoon""research" I am struck by two things. First off, is this all put about and supported by the same crowd that believe all that 2012 nonsense? It would seem likely what with both stories are all doom and gloom as well as being totally unsupported by the facts, and by 'facts' I mean 'true facts'. The second thing was, would it be possible to name all moon based phenomena after DC comic-book superheroes? A couple that occurred to me right off the bat were, "Batmoon", which is pretty obvious, and "Aquamoon", which is less obvious but which ties in nicely with the moon/tide connection. But that is enough for now. Carry on.
