The Morning Rant

"Now, it hardly needs to be said that we shouldn't go around punching guys we don't like in the face. So I am not advocating that. I want to make that clear. But if I were to lose it and start going around punching guys I don't like in the face, one of the first guys I'd punch in the face would be Bill Nye. There are many reasons for this. The first is because he's a smug, condescending d*ck. The second is that he has no formal science education or experience beyond an undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering. And this was back in the 1970s. Nye's claim to be a "science" guy is about as valid as Shaun's King claim to be a "black" guy. Both are shameless frauds. Both should be laughed out of public life. I mean, come on, a prop comic with a kids show is not how you do science. But since he can always be counted on to spout whatever progressive dogma is au courant, he'll always have a platform. Oh, and I hope you all can see the tweet down below; because I can't. After I posted a few disparaging remarks about Nye's qualifications in her thread, she blocked me. What a snowflake."

Monday's celebrities: In the top photo, from left to right, Sophia Loren, Silvana Pampanini, and Lea Massari. The second photo, from 1975, is Robert De Niro and Gerard Depardieu. Somebody noticed an Italian theme in Monday's rant material, but that was sheer happenstance. I didn't even think about it until it was pointed out.
