A blog dedicated to the researchers who dyed a captured chimp's fur pink, then released it. The other chimps promptly tore it to pieces.

Posting may be lighter than usual for a bit

I know, you're thinking: "Shit! He never updates the fucking page as it is. What's 'lighter than usual' - twice a year?'"

But I got promoted down at work. Went from Technical Support Analyst to Systems Analyst II, (woo-hoo!) a jump of not one, but TWO grades. And since they're paying me almost ten grand a year more, I feel like I have to give them something for their money.

In my absence, I highly recommend the blogs listed in the right-hand column under the "I Read:" heading. Any or all are well worth your time.

Chimp: "I promise I won't come in your mouth"

"And I will respect you in the morning, honest!"
Bush Reassures Conservatives Once Again on Court Nominee

WASHINGTON, Oct. 12 - President Bush sought again today to reassure conservatives about his Supreme Court nominee, Harriet E. Miers

What is it about this bozo that he can tell the most outrageous lies in the history of prevarication and get away with it, while a relative straight-arrow like Al Fucking Gore (c'mon - his dipshit wife wanted to censor rock'n'roll) is widely considered a liar?

But that's the beauty of Jonah's approach to journalism

It's much like blogging - you don't have to actually know anything about a given subject in order to write about it.

Jonah, via Wolcott:

I'm working on a chapter of the book which requires me to read a lot about and by Herbert Spencer. There's simply no way I can read all of it, nor do I really need to. But if there are any real experts on Spencer out there -- regardless of ideological affiliation -- I'd love to ask you a few questions in case I'm missing something.

You mean like a sense of shame?

How to Debate a Conservative (If You Must)

Chapter 12 - Dirty Tricks

When, as they invariably will, conservatives bring up Bill Clinton, point out that at least Clinton got his blowjobs from a girl and not Jimmy-Jeff Guckert-Gannon.

Lazy bloggers everywhere agree . . .

. . . this is much easier than typing out a list:

But knowing Apple, they'll probably build-in wireless net connectivity to allow posting your top ten list directly to your blog in the next-generation iPod.

Same tactics that put Bush in the White House

Yahoo headline:
'GoogleOffice': A Microsoft Office Killer?

From the body of the story:
Even though Sun and Google did not, as many predicted, announce this week a "GoogleOffice," pundits say it's only a matter of time before the pair could hatch such an animal.

Yeah, Sun and Google will kick the living shit out of Microsoft, once they work out a few minor bugs like their software not actually existing yet.

Journalism, or adver-tainment? You be the judge.

More like not ready for reality

Paris Hilton: 'I'm not ready for marriage'

"I'm still young and still have a very active career that I'm not prepared to give up," she said. "I have worked very hard to get to where I am. Paris is a great guy and we will handle this with dignity and respect."

Paris obviously prefers to keep on living in her little dream world where she "worked very hard to get to" where she's at, rather than simply choosing the right set of parents.

This is one reason I'm against repealing the estate tax. You're not doing your kids any favors by making their lives too easy. Just look at Paris.

A bumper crop of disquieting comparisons

Former Corrente blogger the farmer has an important post up - you should go read it. If you don't recognize today's USA in the descriptions of 1934 Italy, you aren't paying attention.
