Stop pinching your arm!

Quote of the Day:

“The game is to have them all running about with fire extinguishers when there is a flood, and all crowding to that side of the boat which is already nearly gunwale under.”

~ C.S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters

    1. Milking Red Pills
      Since there’s a LOT of people who call me that for short, now my head has am embedded image in need of more bottles of tequila I can afford to expunge it o_____0

  1. News
    Pinching myself: Censoring…Sounds like Communist China. So if I mention climate change, how long before I get sent to the work camp?

    Thylacine: They are alive but any evidence gets censored by the timber industry down there. They have paid off the labs too.

    Handbags: Did you just assume those are handbags? TRIGGERED 😉

    1. “Facts”
      Perhaps the most overarching example of “fake news” floating about now is that somehow we have entered a new age when facts are in danger. “Facts” have always been in contention – there is nothing at all now or new about this.


      How empty is theory in the presence of fact!
      – A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court

      Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please.
      – quoted by Rudyard Kipling in From Sea to Shining Sea

      We do not deal much in facts when we are contemplating ourselves.
      – “Does the Race of Man Love a Lord?”

      For a forgotten fact is news when it comes again.
      – Following the Equator

      I never saw an author who was aware that there is any dimensional difference between a fact and a surmise.
      – quoted in My Father Mark Twain, Clara Clemen

  2. Mothman
    Since the Mothman phenomena seem to emanate from the TNT explosives storage complex I giggled “haunted armories” (“giggled” is my term for google after it’s search algorithms have become politicized) and it appears that armories are often haunted. Could it be that the bad karma of these storages incite paranormal phenomena across the land? The Point Pleasant facility with its architecturally energetic domes might further stir up and focus the energies.
    Was Point Pleasant “punished” for harboring a huge instrument of death and destruction?
