Getting into this box is what's best for both of us. During your time in the box, you will learn so much, and yet experience so little. It's a wild ride, my friend, one well worth the time spent...and let's face it, you don't have much to do these days anyway.

Peering out of the box - 11/3/13.

Cappy Cap - The art of connecting far apart actions to consequences.
Who fixes the economy when you turn the key and it doesn’t go “vroom?”

Well, let’s test you with a multiple choice question.
a.    The Federal Reserve
b.    The Federal Government
c.    Congress
d.    The President
e.    The people
The answer is e – the people.
Vox Popoli - The high discourse of Twitter.
Captain Beagle: Which is worse, work or rape? I know 2 women who were raped. Go fuck yourself #sorrynicepplhadtohearthat

VD: Hey, talk to @johnscalzi not me. I certainly didn't rape them.

Captain Beagle: no your article suggested an increase in rapes was less harmful than women handing out resumes. Insensitive & absurd

VD: I didn't suggest it, I proved it. By what metric do you claim that rape is more harmful to society than women working?

Captain Beagle: I was unaware one needed statistical data to prove rape is harmful.

VD: You need something, at any rate. What is your basis for claiming rape is worse for society than female employment?

Captain Beagle: thanx for this fascinating study in hyperbolic misogyny. I'm thinking of using you as the template for my next villain.
We're all just vicious, villianous misogynist men and self-hating women lying in wait in our volcano base, aren't we, folks? Logic and discourse be damned, rabbit arguments ahoy!

Vault Co. - The coming plagues.
Superbugs eat flesh all summer long. Manboons flail ineptly at them with crappy antibiotic strains that barely worked when they were released, now serve as high octane body fuel for microbes. Socialized medicine is the gift that keeps on giving. Britain's national health care system has been giving out antibiotics like party favors for 70 years for conditions as severe as toothache, psoriasis and athlete's foot. Stunned that this resulted in eventual backlash by the well-hung gunslingers of the micro-biotic world.
Eat right and exercise well, folks, and for goodness' sake, don't drink the corn syrup.

Alpha Game - Success and solipsism.
I'm just grateful to learn that the real reason for the collapse of Lehman Bros. and the global financial crisis of 2008 was so that Erin Callan could learn An Important Life Lesson. 
 Le Cygne Gris - The middle class is dead.
In sum, the middle class will be more or less completely gutted.  They will face decreasing wages, higher taxes, and more restraints on entrepreneurial activities that would otherwise alleviate their plight.  They will not be able to afford the Middle Class lifestyle, and will eventually descend into the lower class.  Of course, the current government policies will not last forever; they will continue until they are unaffordable.  But by then, the damage will significant and will take a considerable amount of time and effort to reverse.
 Free Northerner - Feminist self-annihilation.
Wow. Why would any woman tolerate this kind of psychological self-annihilation?

Why? Why would women put up with an ideology that required them to destroy themselves?

I find this more sad than maddening, but if I were a woman, I would be pissed over this.
 Sultan Knish - Making the world a better place.
Charity work is of course of moral worth. But we have a shortage of authentic work that helps others. What we have instead is the need for investing useless work or for-profit work with moral stature. It began in the entertainment industry where every movie, book and play had to be aimed at spreading awareness of something or stamping out something else. And then it was everywhere.
Technology is of moral worth if it's Green. If it's not, it isn't. Finance is of moral worth if it invests in companies that produce social value. Food is of moral worth if it's local and sustainable. Clothes are of moral worth if they come from recycled materials. Every industry and activity has a moral worth that can be assessed based on whether it's making the world a better place or not. And if it is found to be making the world a better place, then no assessment needs to be made of its quality or integrity.


  1. Haha, I liked the thing about rape, I had a 'discussion' on one of my posts with this ardent feminist claiming the same shit.

    1. Sounds mighty interesting. Do you have a link?
