George Zimmerman: History's Greatest Monster

The Crime Spree Continues: Zimmerman Assaults, Drags Innocent Family From Their Car

And left his vehicle without permission. Again.

Zimmerman Profiled Black Men For No Good Reason

Well other than they matched the description given by one of the burglary victims. And descriptions are racist.

And no women were ever profiled by Zimmerman. Because sexism.

Zimmerman Put out Family's Fire Brutally and Without Warning

Why does he want these innocent people to starve in the cold? Is there no limit to his cruelty?

Zimmerman Called 911 on a 'Suspicious' 7-Year Old Black Boy

What kind of depraved racist does a thing like that. Don't believe it? Well here's the original police record of his disgusting complaint:

Compl advd s43 is walking alone & is not supervised on busy street // Compl concerned for well-being

What If George Zimmerman Were Black?

Yes what would happen if a black man shot a white kid in AmeriKKKa?

Retconning Gay Marriage

Orson Scott Card and the film version of his book, "Ender's Game' are being shunned and vilified because Card doesn't support gay marriage. Card has tried to appease critics by pointing out that his writings have nothing to do with gay marriage: "Ender's Game is set more than a century in the future and has nothing to do with political issues that did not exist when the book was written in 1984.".

But the boycotts are still on and Slashfilm sniffs:

First of all, just because marriage wasn't being debated in the Supreme Court in 1984 doesn't mean the gay rights movement didn't exist back then.

Jonathon Last points out that this is a serious rewriting of history.

Of course, it isn't the case that gay marriage "wasn't being debated in the Supreme Court in 1984." Gay marriage wasn't being debated anywhere. It wasn't even being debated in the gay rights movement. The idea of same-sex marriage existing as a legal construct-let alone being a constitutionally-guaranteed right-didn't emerge until sometime in the late-'80s/early '90s

...It's not just that the Right People (Clinton, Obama) get a pass on being hatemongers, while Orson Scott Card is History's Greatest Monster. It's instructive how we're now re-writing history to suggest that the gay marriage movement has been with us forever as part of the eternal struggle for truth and justice.

Incidentally, this back-dating is helpful in further vilifying the Wrong People because it allows us to show that they aren't just morally culpable for having the wrong opinions now, but are inferior for having had the wrong opinions then, too.

So gay marriage has always been the most important social issue of the time. And always will be.

Meta Tic-Tac-Toe

Think you've got it all figured out? Well time to step up to the next level to meta tic-tac-toe.

But it took a while for the most important rule in the game to dawn on me:

You don't get to pick which of the nine boards to play on. That's determined by your opponent's previous move. Whichever square he picks, that's the board you must play in next. (And whichever square you pick will determine which board he plays on next.)

...The resulting scenarios look bizarre. Players seem to move randomly, missing easy two- and three-in-a-rows. But there's a method to the madness - they're thinking ahead to future moves, wary of setting up their opponent on prime real estate. It is, in short, vastly more interesting than regular tic-tac-toe.

German Happy Musik

I'm also a sucker for German folk music. It's so dorkily unironic and cheerful that it's hard not to start smiling and tapping along with it.

And this is what you get when you have a tragic lack of soul - and it's not bad.
